Justin Bieber Gets Engaged to Hailey Baldwin and Promises to Put Jesus at the Center of His Marriage
Justin shared his excitement about his engagement to Hailey, on Instagram. “I promise to lead our family with honor and integrity letting Jesus through his Holy Spirit guide us in everything we do and every decision we make.”
“The thing I am most excited for is that my little brother and sister get to see another healthy stable marriage and look for the same!!! God’s timing really is literally perfect; we got engaged on the seventh day of the seventh month, the number seven is the number of spiritual perfection, it’s true GOOGLE IT!”
“He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains FAVOR from the Lord!” This is the year of favor!!!!”
Who is Hailey Baldwin? CBN News reported, “She’s a bit of a star in the modeling world, and she’s been a TV host for music awards shows and the TBS program “Drop the Mic.” Hailey was raised as an evangelical Christian, and her father Stephen Baldwin is an actor who is very outspoken about his born-again faith. She’s not ashamed of her faith either. In a 2016 interview in Teen Vogue, Hailey said, “I was raised in church. I was brought up in that life, and I think that it’s very important for everybody to be in touch with their spirituality and to have a relationship with God. I think that God kind of put me in the place in my life to not be quiet about it, not be quiet about him, but to reach people and to inspire people,” she said.”
It is exciting to see Justin profess his love for the Lord and to openly dedicate his marriage to God! We have been praying to impact the culture, and we are seeing people come out and be unashamed of their relationship with God. Jesus can honor that. Be encouraged by this exciting event and watch or listen to hear the full conversation. Greg and John shared in this segment.
VFNKB #SuccessSecret: It’s Not about Your Gift, But About Your Choices, Jeff Bezos- Amazon
Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, shares a success secret on how to have adventure in your life. Jeff is asked the question, what is the role that adventure plays in his life? “For me, adventure is…we all get to choose our life stories; it’s the choices that define us not our gifts…you can never be proud of your gifts because they are gifts, they were given to you…you can only really be proud of your choices because those are the things that you are acting on. One of the most important choices that each of us has…is you can choose a life of ease and comfort, or you can choose a life of service and adventure.”
Everybody is created in the image and likeness of God. We have a choice and can choose to do what is hard and be willing to do the hard work even when we must do it alone. “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and THE WAY IS EASY that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.” When you choose to succeed, you don’t have to have a big crowd around you. We must prepare to win! Faith and works together complete what we are doing, and we are in this fight with you, and at VFNKB we are helping you to walk through the narrow gate and to make the right choices for your life. Your success is our success, our success is your success, and our success together is Kingdom success! If you build a solid foundation and continue to reinvest, then you will be successful. We want to hear from you! Also shared in this segment, Millennial, Interview, Time. Greg and John shared in this segment.
