Broken crayons still color.

If you're feeling broken today, i just want you to know how much you're loved and cherished by God. He understands what you're going through, and there is absolutely no pain He can't heal. Maybe you're mad at God or feel like He doesn't care about you. But there's hope for those who trust in Jesus Christ. He will hold you tight and mend your wounds, and one day.. He will take all who believe in Him to Heaven where "He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow of crying or pain. All these things are gone forever" - Revelation 21:4

Good night readers, may God bless you...

God will never leave you.

It may be hard to think sometimes but He is there for us always. We all go through hard times and hit some rough spots in our lives. We might not feel that God is with you in those times. I've heard this quote a few times before but it goes a little something like this; "God does not promise you a trouble-free life. He does not answer all the questions you may have about life or everything in between. But what He does promise is that He will be there with you through your times of trouble".
So.. Just keep your trust in God. Our understanding of things doesn't even compare to His.

Christ is enough.

In this world there are certain things that will make us happy. Whether it be your favorite food, clothes, good grades, fun games, the list goes on. Now those things are all fun but there's only one person who can truly bring us unending joy and that one person is Jesus. You can have all the money and the fame in the world and still not have enough. With God, we have enough. He's all we need in life. He is the one who satisfies us and gives us that enough we need. So dont stress if you dont have what you want or whatever because in the end it wont last forever but God will. He is the only thing that will be forever in the end. He brings us unending joy.

And yeah for me, Christ is enough. Everything i need is in Him. What else do i need to ask more?

He > me.

Sometimes i get so caught up in this life.
I find myself so focused on me; on my vision, on my accomplishments (or failures), and on my future.
On my life.
Anyone else ever feel so consumed in their own self that they lose sight of this one huge truth?
Our lives are not our own.
Still so often i wrap myself in the worries in the life around me, striving to meet a certain goal or setting a certain expectation of how something will turn out.

It sort of reminds me of the story when Jesus calms the storm. While the storm was raging, the disciples were afraid, awaking Jesus and saying, "Aren't you concerned we could drown?"
Jesus calms the storm and then asks them, "What were you so afraid for? Do you have no faith?"
He doesn't say "I understand why you were afraid" instead He questions their doubt in His power over all things, in His concern and power over each of their lives.
In my own storms i admittedly begin to worry when i dont find much certainty or when i feel insecure. And in my victories, pride admittedly begins to creep into my heart. 

But then i am gently reminded this:


Yeah, He is greater than me. He is greater than the life around me, greater than anything i could do on my own.

So let me encourage you as i often have to encourage myself, let Him be Lord over your life.
He is greater than all trials we will face and He is also greater than all of our triumphs.

You are great because He is great. You are love because He is love. You live because He lives.

HE > ME.

Keep praying.

Have you ever noticed how just as you're losing hope, God works everything out..?

Isaiah 40 : 31 - But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

Lamentations 3 : 25 - The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him.

Micah 7 : 7 - But as for me, i will look to the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me.

1 Thessalonians 5 : 17 - Pray without ceasing.

Whatever's going on right now, dont give up. Ever. Keep praying for it. Keep telling people about how you're keeping the faith because you know God has got it under control. Keep expecting it.. with that faith of yours that can move mountains. He has got it. He hears you!! He has a plan, and it's going to be great. It will happen at exactly the right moment. Not a second too late. He knows how much you can take and He knows that this is all for a great or purpose: His purpose. Keep on keepin' on because the creator of the universe is in control. There's no other like Him. And He loves you. So much..

You are worth it.

You are worth more than you could ever imagine.
Worth more than the number on the scale, or the hair product you use, or the shoes you wear.
More than the price tags on your clothes or your position on the career ladder, or even the number of followers you have on instagram or twitter.
Head cheerleader or high school drop out, miss popular or miss lonely, whether you love yourself or you cant stand to look in the mirror and feels like everything is falling apart--regardless of who you think you are.. the reality is that in Jesus Christ, you deserve someone who would give up their life for you; because in the eyes of God, you are treasured, loved, strong, and capable.
As a children of the living God--you're cherished, loved, and adored above all things by the Creator of all things for the glory of Him who is greater than all things.

Take Jesus seriously.

I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer i that live, but Christ living in me; and that life which i now live in the flesh i live in faith, the faith which is in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself up for ne. - Galatians 2:20.
People may call me crazy, call me mad. But it doesnt matter because it is true that i am proud and madly in love with Jesus. People may say, "You take this Jesus thing too seriously." But Jesus sacrifices everything, why should i create border on how much i should love and honor Him?
The wisdom that Jesus gives me is that He loves me first, He gives it all--His throne and His life in order to redeem this sinful, unworthy person. He lays down His own life to have me again. He took me seriously on that cross, and i should do too.
Thanks Jesus.

The reward of patience.

- James 5:7-8
The problem with many Christians today is that they lack of patience. They expect things to go their own way immediately, and if they do not see things happen in their own favor soon as they expect, they become impatience. They grumble, complain, and even regret coming to God. Next, they will start running around to seek help outside their Creator.
Patience is a virtue that is necessary for the actualization of any dream in this world. People who achieve things in this life are people of great patience. Take time to learn from successful people around us. If we examine their lives carefully, we will discover that patience played a very important role in their lives before they got to where they are.
The Bible gives example of how to be patience by using a story of a farmer. The Bible says that just as the farmer who planted crops in his field waits till the time of harvest to harvest his crops. That's how we have to wait for whatever we desire till it is actualized. But the funny thing is that many people are so impatient that they cannot wait at all. Instead, just like the example of the farmer given above, they will prefer the crop to be ready before the required time.
For you who think that you have waited so long and cannot wait any longer is to continue working out that your desire prayerfully and have patience. It will surely take place in your life. Our God cannot fail. He is God. He will surely bring it to pass in your life. What you need is patience. Learn from Abraham who waited patiently for God till He answered him. 
Finally, there are many other great men and women in the Bible that their patient is worthy of emulation. For example Ruth stayed with her mother in law that lost everything she has patiently before God rewarded her with a wonderful husband. Also, Hannah prayed and waited patiently before receiving her answer to have a baby. There are many other examples. Having patience does not necessary mean that you will fold your hands and hope for your dream to fly down to you like a dove from heaven. Rather it means that you have to continue praying, trusting and working it out through absolute faith in Christ Jesus till it manifests in your life, like the farmer that continues to water his crops till the time of harvest. I pray that the Lord will give us the ability to wait patiently till the appointed time in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen.
Even if you've waited for a very long time, continue praying hard and trusting in the Lord. Do not lose hope, He will surely bring it to pass in your life.

Be strong and courageous.

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you, He will never leave you nor forsake you. - Deuteronomy 31:6

Your heartache, your frustration, your anger, your stress, your struggles, your sorrows.. God is there through it all. He walks with you no matter what happens in your life. During these times.. pray! Talk to God when you are struggling. Reading God's word (The Bible) is also a great encouragement in trying times. Sometimes certain verses stick out and are just what you need at the right time. Thank God constantly that He walks with you even if you stop walking with Him. We know that He wont ever leave us because He made a promise and He never breaks His promises.

Good night, world. xx

Get out from your comfort zone.

They say "All growth comes from going beyond your comfort zone."

Most of us do the same things every single day. We live in our comfort zone. Today, push beyond it. This is the only way for us to grow, to become better. Today, talk to someone you normally wouldnt talk to, read something new, take a new route home, or try a new physical challenge. Today, dont be afraid to say YES to new opportunities!
Goodmorning, xoxo.

Try to do hard things.

You have to do hard things to be happy in life. The things no one else is doing. The things that frighten you. The things others cant do for you. The things that make you question how much longer you can hold on and push forward. Why?
Because those are the things that define you. Those are the things that make the difference between existing and living and between knowing the path and walking the path.. Of course the hard things are often the easiest things to avoid, to make excuses. But reality always rears its head in the end. And the truth about how ordinary people achieve happiness and success is that they step out of their comfort zones and do the hard things.. So start doing the hard things today! Never let your fear decide your future. Take small chances everyday, one step at a time. Maybe some will work out, some won't. But good choices or bad, if you never take these chances, someone else will build your life for you. You don't want that, right?
Good night sweet people, xx.

Giving compliment.

Do you like when people compliment you? Who doesnt? One easy way to spread positivity is to give someone else a compliment. The best part is that the more compliments you give, the better you feel! This will not only help you in your career or business, but also in every single one of your relationships.
Today, give compliments to people! For you who have bf/gf or husband/wife, it's easier for you because you can compliment them everyday. And remember, giving someone a compliment is free so dont hold back!

Kill your ego.

Many of our decisions in life are actually made subconsciously by our "ego". This is not a good thing, because our ego is like a selfish little child who is constantly seeking attention. This is why we often react in ways that make no sense and make us seem foolish. Too bad we dont realize it until our conscious mind has analyzed the situation several minutes later. Luckily, we all have the power and freedom to choose our response to any situation (although most of us have given this power up). 
Today let's try to become consciously aware of our reactions, especially when we become angry, defensive, jealous, or intimidated. These are key situations when our ego is in control. This is when we must consciously choose a more positive and appropriate response. It's your life, take control back from your ego!
Goodnight, xoxo.
