I have not been a fan of her back when she was an actress (I actually don’t know her to be honest) but I am now a fan of her because she has become this amazing and beautiful woman of God. She has found pure love amidst her broken heart and I am genuinely filled with joy every time I see her.
Here are a few of my favorite Instagram photos captioned with heavenly quotes that are authentic on its own. May every woman (specially single ones) out there be inspired with her story.
We see what appears to be a perfect relationship, but what we don't understand is the #journey that it took for whoever to get there. We #love the #cute photos.. But we don't love the #work that it takes to get there. We don't like to sacrifice and die to ourselves in #relationship. We like to be selfish. We like our way. We like the idea of marriage but actually putting work in & dying to yourself? That's no #fun! Then, we question marriage and say.. Maybe I married the wrong one? No. Maybe, marriage proved to us how selfish we really are. How we are silently rebellious to #God and our spouses. Maybe it tested that whole #1Corinthians13 where it says "#Love bears under anything". I have not been married very long, but to this truth I can already testify…marriage is a #BLISS!! But it also can be very hard and challenging at times.. #Surprise ..!! @kurzeralex and I dare NOT sell the myth of an easy, "perfect marriage", it simply just doesn't exist. How, in fact, can there be perfect marriages, when there are no perfect #people? – But if you want a #GREAT marriage…then you look beyond the imperfections – be determined to #grace each other, love each other, be patient with one another, forgive, forget, protect, #pray together, die daily to yourselves & constantly make efforts to magnify the #good and make your marriage better. Yes the pictures are #kilig and may be a reflection of a #beautiful marriage, but every picture has a story behind it of hard work and dedication. Don't get wrapped up in the idea of "#happilyeverafter", in reality marriage is like running a #marathon. It is going to take a mighty load of #endurance!! So, keep fighting for it, keep #running together, finish the race, and don't forget to have fun along the way! #marriedlife ❤️😉💖💍 📍#LibertyBridge #Budapest #JuLexTravels 🇭🇺 || 📷iPhone6

I hear some women complain, so discouraged they say that there aren't any real, ideal men anymore.. Not realizing that #good women are also almost extinct. Even the Word of God says that "A good woman is hard to find, and worth far more than #diamonds." (Proverbs 31:10) What does the #Bible say about an ideal woman? Some people have the mistaken idea that the ideal #woman in the bible is retiring, boring, & entirely domesticated. Not so! #Proverbs has a lot to say about women, and the book ends with a picture of a woman of strong character, great #wisdom, many #skills, & great #compassion. She is an excellent #wife and #mother, and she also knows how to make money if she wanted to. Her strength and dignity do not come from her amazing achievements, however. They are a result of her reverence for God. And here's what's interesting, her physical appearance is never mentioned. Because the attractiveness of an #ideal woman, according to the bible, comes entirely from her #character not the way she looks. In our #society where physical appearance count for so much, that may be very surprising, don't you think? Some of you #ladies are getting frustrated waiting for the One. But are you even ready for him? Are you the #Proverbs31 woman that the bible consider of "noble character"? While waiting for your #dream man, do you strive to improve your heart's attitude, or do you spend more time beautifying yourself? What steps do you take to develop your inner character, to be a "dream girl"? . The Bible says that a prudent wife is from the #Lord (Proverbs 19:4). YOU ARE GOD'S GIFT TO SOMEBODY, isn't that an exciting thought??! 😊😊😊 Surely you are the answer to someone's prayer! But can you look at God and say "Here I am Lord, I am the woman You have called me to be, I'm ready for the man You have picked for me!" . Yes real, #Godly men are hard to find, but so as good, Godly women! Before you get too tired waiting for #theone, and before you get mad at God for "not answering" you, take a look at your #heart first.. ask yourself if you're on the right path, and are you truly ready for that something and someone #amazing God has in store for you?.. ❤️ #thoughtstoponder #LASB
Officially our first #December wedding #anniversary today! ❤️💍 It's not the million ways we are #identical, we have our differences also.. But it's the handful of #big things we're the same. It's not the #fancy things we have, it's the togetherness we do. ❤️❤️❤️ It's not only the #long, deep conversations but the way we #understand and give #happiness to each other even in #silence. Of course by now we have realized that we are far from #perfect, haha! We are two imperfect #people, and that's okay because we are serving a perfect #God.. We're flawed, we're #learning, and we're walking in #grace. It's not a #dream come true.. Not even a #fairytale. What we have is better. It's #real. It's US. I love you. I am glad we have each other sharing this real #life, this real #love.. @kurzeralex ✨❤️✨
I like that when people ask about him I falter, because what we have is untranslatable and often times all I am left telling them is not words, but the spaces in between via my ridiculous beaming grin.😄 They wouldn't understand anyhow. 🙊💘#soinlove . .

That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life— .. . . whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t #life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t #YOU far more valuable to HIM than they are? Can all your worries add a single #moment to your life? And why worry about your clothing? Look at the #lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet (King) Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as #beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for #wildflowers that are here #today and thrown into the fire #tomorrow, He will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little #faith? So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we #eat? What will we #drink? What will we #wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your #heavenlyFather ALREADY KNOWS ALL YOUR NEEDS. Seek #FIRST the Kingdom of #God, and live righteously, and He will give you #everything you need. MATHEW 6:25-33 ^ (NLT) #GodWillProvide #GodisInControl (📍#TulipTime #HollandMi🌷🌷🌷) #thejewellifestyle
I write about love. I feel as if I have studied love.. . . The ONE LOVE that never ceases to impress me is the love #God has for me. For I have wronged Him..failed Him, hurt Him.. and yet He takes me back and give me His #best, always. And when I fall? There He is to help me rise. He is my protector, my Savior, my provider, my healer, my best friend, my King, my Father. He is #perfection combined. The only competition any man in my life will ever have. #testimony ^ #mmcm ^ #love #poetry #JesusmyAll #LifeinChrist 💜
Is it Christmas yet??!!! 😬💞😄 —Oh how hard can it be to be patient sometimes…😉I have strong self control but who can master it, specially during Holidays.. like, hello Santa diet…😄Haha! – On a serious note now… sometimes it's hard to be patient, we are a people who want what we want & would prefer it right now. But in everything, timing is important… in this life there are things that are appropriate at certain times & if we try to jump ahead, we might miss to learn the very lessons that will so benefit us in the future & even rob us of the reward God wants to give us. Also, you cannot rush something you want to last, just like in love, for instance. Too often wo/men, specially young people – are in a hurry to develop an intimate relationship based on their strong "feelings". But feelings aren't enough to support a lasting relationship. The Bible tells us to "not awaken love until the time is right". Feelings of "love" can create intimacy that overpowers REASON & can make you do STUPID things. I watch a lot of wo/men make the biggest mistakes by rushing & forcing romance. You see when feelings of "love", of "butterflies" , you know, that fuzzy feeling.. it's called hormones – if that dominates, it will grow faster than the commitment needed to make a relationship LAST. If you want to be wise, be patient & wait for "feelings" & commitment to develop TOGETHER, slowly but surely. This is how you can guard your heart & expect a lasting relationship. Oh boy, I can type all day about this. Believe it or not this message was conceived in my head just by seeing this box! To be honest, I get a Spiritual thought almost out of everything! That's just how my brain works! –Anyway.. I wonder what's in the box…🤔 Hmmmn @kurzeralex….😉🎁❤️ | #thismorning | #pajama | #cozy | #fireplace | ©#SongofSongs2seven | #lasb |
#tbt to our first Fall photo together in 2014. By now, we were together for almost 2 yrz & still waiting to kiss until our wedding day! Gosh, looking back, it wasn't that easy you know. We had such STRICT boundaries that we didn't even allow for ourselves to get that close. So, I was thankful when we got #married a few months later!! Waiting to kiss and be physical prior to marriage was one of the best decisions of our life! It gave us a chance to really see each other's "crazy". We weren't clouded by sin and sex. We gave the enemy no foothold in our relationship. It was important to us that we could hear God's voice without the clutter before I do because we knew "I DO" was #forever. Is "kissing" a sin? No! It's what God told us to do! But let's be honest, you wanna do more than kiss and all it takes is a small flame to start a huge fire. – Once married, you will find that if your marriages foundation is sex then it's a terrible foundation. You definitely won't be having sex if you hate that person and have no communication. So, fleeing fornication and appearance of evil is for your GOOD as a single. Set boundaries! God honors holiness. And.. it's less about laws and more about a heart that wants to honor #God. Pretty hard to submit to one another in marriage if you aren't submitting first to God anyway. 😊❤️ #RealTalk #CheerstoGodlyDating #SoWorthTheWait
IF you are connected to G͟o͟d͟ , if you draw n͟o͟u͟ri͟s͟h͟m͟e͟n͟t͟ from Him, if you allow the p͟o͟w͟e͟r͟ that flows through Him to flow through YOU, nothing will hold you back from reaching the most a͟b͟u͟n͟d͟a͟n͟t͟ l͟i͟f͟e͟ possible! | John 10:10. . .

Gotta marvel at Joseph & Mary too this Christmas – Not your fairytale romance. It was hard…it was stressful.. it took courage and faith. They learned trust and patience and how to pull together. The fact they made it as a couple is pretty amazing! I think we're pretty amazing too. Together we've learned a lot… with more to come, I'm sure! God is still lighting the way with His love & grace. Celebrating Him… and us… this Christmas.. @kurzeralex. ❤️| #meetmeunderthemistletoe | 💋☃️❄️
"Everyone says love hurts, but that isn't true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Betrayal hurts. Selfishness hurts. Losing someone hurts. Envy hurts. Everyone gets these things confused with #love, but in reality love is the only thing in this world that covers up all pain and makes someone feel wonderful again. Love is the only thing in this world that does not hurt."— The love that exists in the context of Christ love, only. . •There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. 1John 4:18 •Love covers over all wrongs. Proverbs 10:12 •Love never fails. 1Corinthians 13:8 . #Christlove #Truelove #LifeinChrist
'Women of #God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of #faith. We have enough greed, we need more goodness. We have enough vanity, we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity.' | #preachingmyself | #thejoyofwomanhood |#margaretnadaud | #TreviFountain | ❤️
