She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. (Proverbs 31:25)

A woman at rest in God is at peace with who God made her to be. She is fearless, and unstoppable, and so she can laugh at the days to come. She can do these things because she has placed her trust in God, and not in her own understanding… She knows who holds her future and who controls her destiny. She finds rest in Jesus because she is living according to His will.

As I get ready to celebrate Christmas and to welcome the New Year, I can't help but feel my heart explode with gratitude for all the blessings my family, and I have received on 2014. On this upcoming year, I want to make obeying His instruction and resting in His promises my number one 2015 goal.  I am so excited about the new year, and cannot wait to see His promises manifested in my life.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Purgatory Chasm

Monday, October 27, 2014



 According to Harvard Forest, leaves change color during autumn because the amounts of pigments change as the leaves prepare to fall from the trees. To say that I find this process fascinating would be an understatement. The process of letting go, and holding on -that is.

Letting go seems so easy, all it takes is determination, the simple act of making a decision to move on, to let nature take it's course. But holding on requires patience, and it is in patience that we truly realize how strong we can be.


The Bible teaches us to let go of everything, and to hold on to Christ because it is in letting go that we die to ourselves as we learn to live a life guided by Him.

For I, the LORD your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.” -Isaiah 41:13.

There is so much beauty in letting go, but so much strength in holding on. In holding on to Christ, we truly learn to let go.

Prayer

Matthews 7:7-8



I have always been fascinated with prayer, but my fascination has skyrocketed in the past few months. I am currently obsessed with Matthews 7:7-8.

I would like to emphasize on the word ask, which is defined on the Merriam Webster dictionary as “to tell someone in the form of a question that you want to be given something or that you want something to happen: to request something.”

I am a big believer that God will grant all of our wishes, needs, and desires as long as they are part of the plan He has for our lives. With that being said, we have to pray in the Spirit and ask God to lead us in the right direction and to reveal his plan for our lives.

Prayer helps us to understand God’s will, and teaches us to be patient as we submit to His timing. Daniel chapter 10 is a great example of the three P's (prayer, perseverance, and patience). I encourage you to read it. Daniel fasted for 21 days, and even though verse 12 says that God heard him on the first day he humbled himself, Daniel did not receive his blessing until the twenty fourth day because the king of the Persian kingdom resisted the Angel God had sent for twenty one days.

One thing I love about Daniel is that he persisted, and continued to fast, and to seek God –even though he did not receive his answer on day one. My goal this week is to be a little bit more like Daniel, to pray more, to seek more, to knock more.
