Food for thought from Joel Osteen ๐ŸŒบ

You’re in Good Company

“...but Jesus refused to answer.”
(Luke 23:9, NLT)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
In scripture, many times people would come against Jesus and criticize Him. Many times it says, “Jesus answered them not a word.” He simply didn’t respond to His critics. He didn’t try to convince them to change their minds. He didn’t get upset because somebody was talking about Him. No, He just ignored it.

When people come against you and they’re jealous, trying to make you look bad, trying to discourage you, remember you’re in good company! Jesus was probably criticized more than anyone else. I love the fact that He didn’t try to explain Himself. He didn’t try to make everyone understand Him. He just stayed focused on what He was called to do. He simply ran His race.

Friend, Jesus set the example for you and me. We don’t have to try to win the approval of others. We have to understand that not everyone is going to understand us. Our focus should be on following God’s leading and let Him order our steps. The next time someone criticizes you, remember the example of Jesus. Overlook it, don’t get offended, and keep moving forward in the destiny God has for you

Thought for today

Pay Them No Mind

“But some scoundrels said, ‘How can this fellow save us?’ They despised him and brought him no gifts. But Saul kept silent.”
(1 Samuel 10:27, NIV)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
In scripture, King Saul had some people come against him. They were making fun of him. He could have easily become distracted and lost his focus. He could have defended himself saying, “I’m a good leader. I have what it takes.” But what did he do? He kept silent. One translation says, “He paid them no mind.”

Friend, sometimes that’s what you have to do when people are coming against you. You have to realize that some people are just jealous. Not everyone is going to have your best interest at heart. But don’t let them control your destiny. Don’t let them distract you from God’s best. Instead of playing up to people or trying to win over all your critics, keep your eyes focused on what God has for you. Spend time with people who see what God is doing in you. Focus on those who will celebrate you. Ignore the critics so you can be all that God has called you to be.

Me Now mini lip and eye pencils swatches

I got these from Halener Rustique some from a GGB and got a bc of 12 for $25ttd. I gave a couple to friends and I have a couple more that I'm keeping for my sis. Here are swatches of my 6. I underestimated these cuties. They looked small and maybe even insignificant, but when used you will want the box of 12. On the first swatch they seemed hard and not pigmented, so I decided to sharpened them and swatch again. Omg!! The results wre different. I have never used orange as a lip color but I tried it and omg this orange pencil looked amazing on my lips. What I love was that it glided on and had a matte finish. It also has amazing staying power. Ive worn all three lip colors swatched in the pic below love love them.... I wore the gold and green pencils on my waterline amazing staying power. My only con is because it's so tiny my love affair will be short. May get a backup box of 12. At $25ttd a box you cannot go wrong. Definite recommendation.

Revamping nailpolish Sunday

So today I decided to spend some time with my nailpolish collection. I realized that a couple of polishes were really streaky with application so rather than throwing them out I decided to add some of my Halener Rustique's pigments and change the colors I completed 5 from the batch

Revamping nailpolishes

I don't generally have time to go through my nailpolish collection but today I attempted to sort through them separating work appropriate colors from the rest. I came across this color and I really never used it and I hated the color payoff. So what do I do??? I revamp it. I added a nude colored pigment from Halener Rustique. I think the color is called "in the nude". I'm not too sure as the label was taken off, after adding that color I realized that I wanted a slightly pink undertone. I then added mellow and got the color I wanted. So next time You get bored of a color or just don't like a nail polish color don't rush to throw out, just grab a pigment and play around for a desired color. Hope this was helpful you can follow me for updates.
