-Caleb and Kelsey; 10,000 Reasons / What a Beautiful Name-

 

Good morning! I have seen this video multiple times through “likes + shares” on facebook and I listened to it and I fell in LOVE. I was honestly singing to this song on Spotify on my way to work.

Recently, I have focused a whole bunch on compassion, encouragement and understanding. These bible verses definitely touch my heart….

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
||1 Thessalonians 5:11||

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.
||Proverbs 3:5-6||

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
||John 14:27||

 

I have been so guilty of worrying and understanding situations. I need to focus and trust in God’s soothing love He has given in my heart and know the He is good. All the time!

I hope you have a wonderful day today. 🙂

Blessings!

In other news, life has been wonderful. I am continually thanking God for these little blessings in my life and what ever endeavor he has for me in the future.

When I think of Ruth 1:16, I am in complete awe by the obedience she had for Naomi and to God. It’s so refreshing to see her faith and how God held her hand so tightly along the way and she didn’t let go. There are times in my life that I want to let go, I casually refused to be obedient and run somewhere that is easier. In reality: I should face different situations which will help me learn to grow and to understand my own character that is pleasing in God’s eyes.

M&M

When I first moved down to the south, I was absolutely terrified to be leaving my hometown. Coincidentally, it was the same town where I exhausted the subject of “I never want to live here when I am older.” I was in disbelief with my thoughts and they became a reality. I was in the south, unaware of the atmosphere and the people.

I actively searched for various churches and fell in love with the appearance of this church. I hesitated at first due to the size of the church, but then realized I should go anyway. Thanks to my resistance of so called “fear” this is how I met my best friend.

Today I am thankful for my beautiful sister. A week ago from today she passed away suddenly and I am deeply saddened by her absence, but I am very  happy knowing her presence is in the arms of our Lord, our Heavenly Father. She is no longer chained with sin and tribulation.
