From Day 353 to Day 356

Day 356 – A new beginning

21_DEC

“…Put on your new nature, created to be like God…” Ephesians 4:24a

(I was at the airport waiting for my flight to go back home. When I found out that I didn’t get the window seat I made sure I had the shot for today… and with all this talk about the world ending today and since the sky was kind of dramatic, I took this picture! And my camera just broke after that… Let’s see what happens tomorrow…

Well, now I’m back home… Not really excited about it… Is good to be with family, but now is time to face reality and find the right path for my life… just like a new beginning…)

Day 355 – Thank you!

20_DEC

“Thank God for this gift too wonderful for words!” 2 Corinthians 9:15

(Should I say anything else? – Sunset by the Araguaia River)

Day 354 – Grace

19_DEC

“But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.” Psalm 86:15

(I have to say that I had to Google Translate egret… I have no idea how it is called in English… Anyhow… what a beautiful bird… full of grace!)

Day 353 – Floating boat

18_DEC

“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed.” 2 Corinthians 9:8

(Another great sunset…)


Day 281 – Dreams come true

“It is pleasant to see dreams come true…” Proverbs 13:19a

(Well, it is! I always wanted to fly a balloon… I always thought of them as “magical”… We I decided to go back to Brazil I knew that this dream would have to come true here… So, I schedule the flight for like a month ago but it was raining and I could only reschedule for today. A friend of mine went with me and she was so scared, I was so tired and the forecast was showing rain and I must confess that I was accepting that fact that this dream would not come true… I had to call the pilot last night to confirm the flight and he said that the conditions were great… So, I woke up very early because we were about 40 min away and it was the sunrise flight but I was so discouraged and I pray to God something like show me i you want this to happen… Then I opened an daily devotional and the first thing I read is: “Dreams come true” and Proverbs 16:1. Well… I have no doubt that God wanted me to experience this… not only the amazing views, watching the sun rise from a higher level, feeling so serene and listening to the sound of the silence… but most of all, I think that He wanted me to know that dreams come true… And I needed the hear that… By the way, I had used Proverbs 16:1 before and I choose this other verse. Also, if you want to experience an surreal, serene, awe experience, go on an balloon flight!)

 


Day 187 – Accepted!

“…I have God’s acceptance through faith in Christ. This is the acceptance that comes from God and is based on faith.” Philippians 3:9b

(Why is it so hard for us to accept ourselves when God has already accepted us?

By the way, I think I found a new prayer place!)


Day 177 – God’s grace

Color and Theme Project: Week 8 – Color: Green – Theme: Resentment

I claim this scripture to overcome resentment:

“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.” Ephesians 1:7


Day 168 – Cloudy sunset

Color and Theme Project: Week 7 – Color: Blue – Theme: Discouragement

I claim this scripture to overcome discouragement:

“Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.” James 1:12

(Is it blue enough?? I hope so… It was all I could think of after a long day at work…)


Day 167 – Blue sky

Color and Theme Project: Week 7 – Color: Blue – Theme: Discouragement

I claim this scripture to overcome discouragement:

“The eternal God is your refuge, and His everlasting arms are under you…” Deuteronomy 33:27a

(Early post before a busy Friday! Be blessed!)


Day 164 – Finding courage

Color and Theme Project: Week 7 – Color: Blue – Theme: Discouragement

I claim this scripture to overcome discouragement:

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.” Psalms 46:1-3

(I’m so blessed to live near the beach… I haven’t been there for weeks… I missed it so much… I knew that I had to go there. It is one of my favorite places to talk with God and find courage to face life!)
