Day 362 – Hidden life

27_DEC

“I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me. I could ask the darkness to hide me and the light around me to become night— but even in darkness I cannot hide from you. To you the night shines as bright as day. Darkness and light are the same to you.” Psalms 139:7-12

(It is way to hot here in Brazil… I did not want to go out to take a picture today… So, I laid in my bed and saw my beautiful box that I brought with me with my stuff inside or I should say my life inside. I’m a secret person… It is difficult for me to verbalize and when I do I think people don’t understand… Anyways… I’ll open this box soon… and I’ll share about some stuff in 2013 on my new blog… The only one that knows it all is God… Nothing is hidden from Him.)

From Day 306 to Day 326 – Grace

Hello!! First of all, my apologies for disappearing for a little while… well, just 20 days… I’m glad that my project is about taking a picture everyday not blogging everyday…

So, I’m not sure how this post is gonna turn out… But there is one thing I want to make sure I say here… God’s grace is unquestionable… I’m sure that I was able to take the pictures because of His grace…

I’m gonna post this only verse for all the pictures except for Day 306: “See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God…” Hebrews 12:15a

It has been 20 days since I landed here… Is really hard to explain the feeling… very mixed emotions.. Is great to see my family but at the same time is as if they are strangers but in a good way.

The weather is not helping… it has been raining a lot.

I got sick. I’m good now.

The sun is brighter here.

Things here are the same but different at the same time.

You pass by places you used to go and it your memory pops out.

I’ve been home most of the time… some of the pictures is just from downstairs where we are staying or the porch of the apartment.

People here are very diverse… Like all different shapes, colors… is very interesting… and overall I sense that they are very relaxed and happy.

The beach is beautiful.

I’m adapting okay… It is not easy but I’ll get the hang of it!

Now I’m gonna go through the pictures and if I feel like I’ll write about them…

Makes more sense if you read from the bottom!

I’ll try to post more often!

God bless!!!

 “Thus far theLord has helped us.” 1 Samuel 7:12b

This was my last picture in the USA… I’m glad that I was able to take it because I was planning this picture for my last day for months… It was a beautiful morning… I wanted to leave with this image in my mind… Combining balloon and the beach… 2 of my favorite things… Letting go of some stuff that holds me back…


Day 302 – Stained Glass

“You must be blameless before the Lord your God.” Deuteronomy 18:13

(Yesterday was my last Sunday… My last day at my church where I attended for over 11 years. Church became family and home… This stained glass is there… The symmetry of the church amazes me… I used to sit on the altar when no one was there and just admire the house of God and it’s symmetry… I imagined all the work was put on (I think over 100 years ago) to build this amazing place and what a privileged to be there all those years… This verse was from the preaching… God is good, faithful, loving, merciful… I thank Him for this beautiful place I call “my church”.)


Day 268 – At the ceiling

Real Abstract Project – Post #3

If God Loves Me, Why Can’t I Feel It?

“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.”  Ephesians 2:4-5

There are many people in this world who believe for one reason or another that God does not love them. The is truth that God is love, and that He deeply, stubbornly, and eternally insists on loving every individual on the face of the planet. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you have done. God’s love even includes people you may have trouble loving. As a matter of fact, God loves you~ Dr. David Jeremiah

(God has just being so good… and that doesn’t mean life is not hard… On the opposite… life (my life) lately has been really hard… but at the same time I know that God is somehow taking care of it all even when I can’t feel it… I gotta trust Him… Just this picture today proves that God loves me… Well, it is a picture of the ceiling at my job… after working 10 hours straight  I sat down I took a picture of the ceiling… He knows how much is project means to me and how I do everything I can to make sure I take a picture everyday… And, yes, you can still see His beautiful creation even looking at a ceiling…)

 


Day 165 – He heard my cry

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

I claim this scripture to overcome discouragement:

“From the ends of the earth I cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed;
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” Psalms 61:2

(He heard my cry. He hears yours… God is good!

When I read this verse I remembered this song from Nicole C Mullen
