Connecting with God

closeup-connection-heart-113737There are so many ways we can connect with God.

Just to share a few:

  1. Spend time in nature (Just you & God)
  2. Listening to songs (that Glorify God)
  3. Reading His WORD (Reflecting on words that speak to you)
  4. Take time for YOU (Yes you! Spend time to know you)
  5. Doing things you love- Bask in God’s complete freedom & joy
  6. Love your body- Exercise, Eat well, Sleep well …

The possibilities are endless. Look to God. What is it that you love, enjoy doing the most?To sing? To dance? To make art? To create? To write? To inspire? Within us are the powers of God manifest through the working of the Holy Spirit. If only you knew the power you had within you, you would be awakened with new strength.

I love this song, it speaks to me a lot.

Especially when Jesus has risen! Halleluja! It speaks of the beauty and wonder of God I can’t even describe. Creation. He created us. How amazing is that? When you begin to tap into the source of light, you receive light. God is all good, how can He give us something bad?

Look at ourselves. What are we afraid of? Truth? or Lies? God’s word is truth, and in Him there is life. Take a look at our choices, are we really choosing God or ourselves? Pray for grace, ask for wisdom, and when you do not know how to pray, the Holy Spirit will guide you.

Have faith, & Believe in Him.

Love,

I am Gracefully Broken

Here I am, God
Arms wide open
Pouring out my life
Gracefully broken


It is difficult to accept that God has a plan for me. Because growing up I am taught that only through doing can I receive. I didn’t know how to receive because it wasn’t part of my life. Giving I am familiar with. Because I am so used to giving that being broken, and torn apart has always been part of my life. I even used to think that this life is going to be full of hardships, and bad people, because of my past experiences, and relationships that have scarred me. It is only foolish to think that this world can satisfy me that I choose to turn away from God.

Because of pride, and fears that I hold close to my heart that in my daily choices I choose to walk away from Jesus. Every day is a constant battle, and the opposite of fear is love. Then choosing love means choosing God more than myself, and it is only in dying to myself that I am brought to new life. Therefore I am convinced that in this life that nothing can separate us from God’s love (Romans 8:38). Yes, there will be great trials but following Jesus comes with a price.

But knowing what awaits me in God’s kingdom pushes me forward. To press on to this life (Philippians 3:14), and to know that God’s peace, love and joy surpasses all that we can think of (Philippians 4:7). Who can comprehend the depth of God’s love? So I say build your life on Christ, His Word, His Truth, and Life. For there is no other way to enter the Kingdom of Heaven but only one. To be sure of who God says you are, to be affirmed of He who says you are. To never fear but to live boldly for God’s people, so that you may bear witness to them. Pray, and ask for what you need. The Lord who already knows what we need will supply them.


Though you slay me
Yet I will praise you
Though you take from me
I will bless your name
Though you ruin in me
Still I will worship
Sing a song to the one who’s all I need
