2017 has been the best year of my life. I know, I know, I say that at the end of every year, but it is not because I merely feel like it, but because it is true. Before 2017, 2016 was the best year of my life. This year was better than 2016, as was 2016 better than 2015, and so on. And guess what, 2018 is going to be an even better year for me. And for you, if you would believe. Over the past few weeks, Psalm 65 has appeared and reappeared in my personal bible studied (which I’ve been very bad at.) First, I was praying to God to hit my targets at work, and I was praying Psalm 65:2, which says “O You who hear prayer, To You all flesh will come.” And as I prayed for the Lord who answers prayer to help me in my targets at work, Psalm 65:11 came to my mind. It says “You crown the year with Your goodness, And Your paths drip with abundance.” …
This has been a most beautiful week. Easily one of the most beautiful weeks I’ve had in Dublin. I’ve made friends, whose company I truly enjoy; I’m getting a hang of my role at work, and I can find my way around this new city much easier than before. But it’s also been a most emotional week, the good emotions though. Joy, peace, gratitude, clarity of thought (is that an emotion?) Yesterday I went to see a movie with my friends at 10pm (don’t worry, my area is safe.) It wasn’t the wisest decision as we all had work the next day, but as one of my friends said, you only live once. Also tickets were only 8euros so it was a financially smart decision. On our way back, my friends and I (me and three guys) took pictures by the bridge, and generally made good cheer. I must have used the word “beautiful” at least a hundred times. The bridge was beautiful, as was the water, and the sky, and people, and life, and …
Never judge yourself by some arbitrary standard because God doesn’t do that. He is too loving to even remember your faults. He is too kind to hold your past against you. He does not accuse you. He does not condemn you. When you feel like you’re being accused, realize that it’s the enemy speaking. God always calls you to Himself, never chases you away from Him.
Examine your heart today. Are you arrogant, boastful or proud? Are you taking God’s glory for yourself? Have you lost your bearing in life, amassing wealth without giving the Lord His tithes and offerings?
Perhaps like me, you’re extremely saddened by the events in Orlando, Florida. My heart goes out to the victims’ families and the entire state. But there’s so much we all can do.
Have you ever tried praying a novena? Have you ever tried saying the same prayer over and over again? Here are some useful tips and tricks!
When we’re very close to God, His nature overtakes ours such that we never even have to ask what He wants us to do. Our will becomes permanently surrendered to His, and we truly understand that His will is infinitely better than ours. Truly, there’s no better place to be! Get into God’s secret place today!
Dear friend and family members. Thank you for your support of this blog. I remember the first time I told my dear, dear friend Priscilla, that I wanted to start a blog, where I would primarily share my faith and love for God. She asked what was stopping me and I had no answer. I knew how to use wordpress, and blogging is basically free. I know how to write, and most importantly, the blog content wouldn’t exactly come from me, but from the Holy Spirit stuff. Basically, I had nothing holding me back, except myself. Today, I looked at my statistics and I’ve had over 10,000 views. Is this me? Writing from my tiny dorm room that witnessed a lot of tears, fears, and victories. And today, I’ve had over 10,000 views. It’s alright if you don’t think this is a big deal. I personally live by Zechariah 4:10 “Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.” This blog has become a source …
“I lift my eyes to the hills, from whence cometh my help?” Where are you expecting your help to come from? It has to come from the Lord. He’s the only only who’s bound by Himself to never leave nor forsake you. He and He alone.
Oh, nothing too serious. Just the ways that Jesus has been coming through for me, and blowing all my expectations away!
