| UNWAVERING FAITH | "No unbelief made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised." - Romans 4:20-21
Been studying Romans as a church and was struck when I read this. The passage was talking about Abraham's faith and how he chose to believe in God's promise, even though it seemed impossible with his life circumstances. These particular verses says that he didn't waver, but he grew stronger still, and he was fully convinced of God's power. How?? I don't know about you, but it's so easy for me look at everything around me and fall into despair, wondering how God's going to "fix" whatever situation I'm in or how this promise can be true when life looks like the opposite. It's so easy to focus on only what we can see.
But that's not what Abraham did. He didn't base his faith on feelings and appearances. He demonstrated that faith is something that persists despite our weakness, despite our feelings and perceptions. Faith is thinking about God and focusing our attention on the facts about Him. Believing God isn't just thinking about God, but trusting His word. It is taking God at His word even when there is nothing else to go on, when feelings, popular opinion, and common sense seem to contradict His promise.
So I pray for faith like Abraham for us all. That when life threatens to knock us down, may we cling all the more tightly to what we know about God to be good and true. May we hold fast to His promises and wait patiently for their fulfillment, trusting that our God is at work. .

Und schon wieder ein paar Tage der Abstinenz dazwischen... Aber dafür hatte ich sowohl ein produktives, als auch ein sehr schönes Wochenende :) 77/365 #letterjournal #letteringforoneyear
As we grow up, we start getting more concerned about what people think about us! We’re hesitant to start new things, thinking what if I fail because we don’t want to feel embarrassed!!
Instead of thinking that we’re humans and it’s alright to make mistakes and to fail, we are worried about what the world thinks of us! I was surely one of them.
Today, try giving yourself the freedom to do anything you ever wanted to because it’s worth giving a try. Try even if you don’t get things right at first, you eventually would figure out something, just believe in yourself.
Don’t be AFRAID to let OTHERS see you TRY
//take chances, make mistakes
that’s how you grow
pain nourishes your courage
you have to fail in order to practice being brave
I’ve been trying to convince myself to do more digital lettering, but I’ve been too scared to start from my fear of failing to producing something “perfect” on the first try, so to fight that, I’m going to spend 20-30 minutes a day or at least once week to create a simple type layout ☺️ I let myself be creative for an hour today and I didn’t realize that it’s been too long since I’ve done that 😔 So here’s to more love to my creativity 🖍 I’m also going to include the process video since some of you expressed liking to see my process 🤗
My focus has been way off lately. I need to really determine my ‘why’ and stick to it. I’m not quitting though. May need to quit some people along the way but that’s fine. ☺️
Are you feeling sleepy when you sit to pray?
Are you so busy throughout the day that you're unable to sit in God's presence for even 10 minutes?
Is your mind always wandering off when you finally decide to get some quiet time?
I'm guilty of all the above questions. And I believe that many of you are feeling the same way. Work, school, kids, to-do lists, social media or whatever it maybe. We are busy and we are distracted. Period.
The enemy's easiest trick is to distract the body of Christ from doing what they need to do.
Put prayer on your to-do list, add it to your planner and make it a priority on your schedule. We have got to fight back. It's time we go on our knees in battle. Don't ever forget that there is power when the church prays.
God is waiting to move on our behalf. But are we asking Him?
Later, he came back to his three disciples and found them all sound asleep. He awakened Peter and said to him, “Do you lack the strength to stay awake with me for even just an hour? Keep alert and pray that you’ll be spared from this time of testing. You should have learned by now that your spirit is eager enough, but your humanity is weak.” Matthew 26:40-41 TPT .
But make sure that you don’t get so absorbed and exhausted in taking care of all your day-by-day obligations that you lose track of the time and doze off, oblivious to God. The night is about over, dawn is about to break. Be up and awake to what God is doing! God is putting the finishing touches on the salvation work he began when we first believed. We can’t afford to waste a minute, must not squander these precious daylight hours in frivolity and indulgence, in sleeping around and dissipation, in bickering and grabbing everything in sight. Get out of bed and get dressed! Don’t loiter and linger, waiting until the very last minute. Dress yourselves in Christ, and be up and about!
