lainaker The parable of the sower is so convicting... It talks about different kinds of Christians. The kinds who never choose to really hear the power of Christ are like seeds thrown on the ground that are quickly snatched up by birds. They never grow. The kind that hear and get so incredibly passionate but then completely turn away at the first sign of struggle are like seeds that grow very shallow roots. They never are strong enough to bear fruits of joy and happiness. They collapse at the slightest push just as a plant would with no roots.
The most dangerous kind of Christian is the kind that grows amidst thorns. These are the people who can't let go of the world. They are consumed with earthly desires and wordly possessions. The problem with being this kind of Christian is you still have roots. You still can be firm in your own personal faith. (Or so you believe) but the thorns of this world are so wrapped up in who you are that when others reach out to take your fruits they are pricked by the thorns. They are at first drawn in by your fruits and don't see the thorns. These Christians are so detrimental to this world. We are called to be the kinda of Christians who grow free. With strong roots and full fruits. With no thorns choking us and harming the ones around us. It is so convicting to know that our fruits, when wrapped up with thorns, can be so dangerous. It will cause people to never seek out fruits of Christ again. It encourages me to rid myself of the thorns in my life. And to realize the awesome wonder that is God.

lainaker I have been desperately praying for guidance, direction, and answers. Desperately. I ended up on my knees in the chapel tonight. Crying, pleading, praying. We have this book that sits in the chapel that has little notes and prayers in it. It's pages upon pages full of different peoples thoughts and conversations with god. Anyone can write in it. I've written in it a time or two. But I say there on the floor reading it and flipping back and forth through the pages until the tears welled up in my eyes and I couldn't anymore. I laid my head down on the floor and just begged god for something. For an answer. For proof that he's listening to me. For someone to just tell me what direction I'm supposed to go or tell me to be patient. I prayed for someone to come pray for me. And I lifted my head up and saw this. At the bottom of the page. No signature, no lengthy note. It was written years ago. But there it was. For me. From God. Using some unknown person to bless me and lift me up. "For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control"
2 Timothy 1:6-7

lainaker Haven't posted a transformation pic in quite some time. Mostly because I gained back a lot of the fat I had lost over the summer. But god has inspired me to change my body for good this time. And he's healed my body from things that have been hurting me and preventing me from making progress. So now I am back on track and moving in a positive direction! And doing pretty good so far! Thanks to Gods wonderful presence in my life. I'm so excited:) #lainakersfitjourney 1w

lainaker "The joy I offer grows in the soul of emptiness and brokenness. In my Spirits hands, your felt emptiness will become a consuming thirst to know My Son. Your agonizing brokenness over the ongoing corruption in your soul will transform into overwhelming gratitude for My Son's forgiveness. It is empty and broken people who at the same time are thirsty and grateful who discover the power to love in ways they never thought possible" 2w
