What does Gods grace mean to you? Gods grace is deeper than the sea. His grace is bigger than all of the oceans, rivers, and sea put together. No one can compare their grace to Gods grace because Gods grace is far more than just blessings. God shows us favor, kindness, love and mercy.
Grace is greater than sin. You can sin your whole entire life but just remember that grace wins every time. Gods grace reaches far beyond the highest star, goes deeper than the deep blue sea. When you feel like there is no hope left, or you feel like a complete failure Gods grace will restore that hope that was lost.

Something to ponder on before another work week ends. So what are some ways you can do to help this already chaotic world become a better place?
We live in a fallen world and a people that are broken, just as we are, however the good news is that God cannot fix what is first not broken, and we know God is near the broken hearted and crushed in spirit (Psalm 34:18), so until we acknowledge our brokenness before God, He cannot do anything for us or anything through us. And, it is not in us to make the world become a better place. That will take the strong arm of the Lord to bring better things, but we can make the world a better place to live in for those around us. That brings us to humility. God cannot give His grace to anyone that does not first humble themselves before Him (James 4:6), so if we are humble before God and before others, we’ve already made it a better place by showing humility before others by esteeming others better than ourselves (Phil 2:3).

When I was in high school, I had a teacher who asked us to write a letter to our future selves in ten years. Who would we be? Where would be live? Marriage? Family? Career? What would be me most important to us and how would we find space in our lives for the things we claimed to cherish and value?
Then, he mailed those letters to us, ten years later. There was significant eye rolling, as you might imagine, when I opened mine. All the hard won wisdom of a sheltered, privileged 18 year old white girl, dreaming her dreams.
What would it feel like, now, to write a letter to my younger self, instead?
What would I want that girl to know? How could I help her sidestep some mistakes or see the world or her faith with different eyes? Continue reading “Dear Me by Nichole Nordeman”
It’s been a while since I had an original post. With all the deadlines prior the Holy Week and summer outings with the family, I had little to no time for writing something I’m truly passionate about. So now that I’ve gotten a quick break from work because the boss is out of the country, let me share with you a few photos from our Camotes trip.
Camotes Island lies somewhere east of Cebu, Philippines. Since Cebu is well known for its beautiful beaches and one of them can be found in Camotes, it’s no surprise thousands of foreigners and tourists visit the place, especially during summer time, which starts from March and lasts until early June. I mean summer is practically all year round in the Philippines but those are the hottest months of the year. And when I say it’s hot, it’s 90 F or more than that!
We stayed in Santiago Bay Garden and Resort. For only 50USD a night (some cottages are actually as low as 20USD), the place was all worth it! So the next time you visit Philippines, or you are in Cebu, you should try Camotes Island.
