What is faith?

20160512_174438“Faith is confidence of things hoped for and the assurance of what we do not see.”

-Hebrews 11:1


This song makes me wanna sing and dance, to proclaim His love for me. A song filled with a conviction of who I am in Christ Jesus, therefore I can only sing:

Holy, there is no one like You
There is none beside You
Open up my eyes in wonder
Show me who You are
And fill me with Your heart
And lead me in Your love to those around me

I will build my life upon Your love
It is a firm foundation
I will put my trust in You alone
And I will not be shaken

Prayer for Generosity (St. Ignatius of Loyola)

Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to seek for rest,
to labor and not to ask for reward,
save that of knowing that I do your most Holy will.
In Jesus name, Amen

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,
