Thank You, Heavenly Father, for giving me another year to celebrate life and for my 21 years of existence. You are truly amazing! Looking forward to witnessing more miracles in the coming years. ♥
Surround yourself with the right people and you can fulfill the dreams God gives you. Put yourself in relationships with people who are not only like-minded, but are also seeking to honor God in their own lives. Here is a thought to consider today: if your friends don’t point you toward God’s goal for you, then they’re not very good friends. You want to be around dream-builders, not dream-crashers! When you prune the relationships around you, you’re not cutting things out of your life; you’re making room for growth so that you can reach your God-given potential! When you make room for God’s best, you can walk away from the lesser things that the world has to offer.
Life of Pi.
This is probably one of the best films that I’ve ever watched. I totally love the story and the visuals. Bravo to the makers of this film! To the author, Yann Martel, I have yet to read the book. I will, soon.
Believe the better story. Believe the unbelievable.
Amazing. Just being able to witness thousands of people go together to worship and thank Jesus, all willing to sacrifice for Him is already a miracle. Thank You, Hesus Nazareno, for this wonderful experience. This is just my second time, I’m praying and hoping to do this yearly. :)

“Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10, NIV).
In this day and age, our culture has gotten used to having constant activity going on: computers, cell phones, television, email, video games. There’s nothing wrong with any of that stuff, but the Bible tells us that we need to stop and be still so we can focus on knowing God. I’ve found this to be true especially during the difficult times. When you are facing a challenge, it’s easy to want to run to a friend or talk about it with a co-worker, but at some point, you have to stop and say, “God, I rest in You. I know You have me in the palm of Your hand.”
Remember, our battles are spiritual battles. The people in your life aren’t the source of your problems, the forces of darkness are. When you choose to be still and know that the Greater One lives on the inside of you, you are putting yourself in a position of strength. So today, take time to be still before Him. Let His peace cover you. Let Him refresh you by His Spirit. Remember, the battles you face belong to the Lord. Be still before Him so you can see His hand of victory in every area of your life!
A Prayer for Today
Father in heaven, I humbly come before You. I choose to be still before You. Speak to my heart so I can know You more. Fill me with Your peace as I put my trust in You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
