Beauty in the Chaos

Even though this season hasn’t been the easiest – My heart knows where to find comfort

Even when tears run down my face with no end – My heart knows where to find rest

Even when I can’t seem to find answers – My heart knows His sovereignty

Even though the pain looks bigger than my purpose – My heart knows the One who has called me into this journey and destined me to a greater future

Even when it’s hard to find a way out & see a brighter future – My heart clings to his promises & prompts me to live by my convictions & not by my feelings

Even though I don’t understand – My heart knows Him well & this is enough to say – IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL

F.A.I.T.H.

“The strength of a woman is not measured by the impact that all her hardships in life have had on her; but the strength of a woman is measured by the extent of her refusal to allow those hardships to dictate her and who she becomes.”

“A força de uma mulher não é medida pelo impacto que todas as dificuldades na sua vida tem tido nela; mas a força de uma mulher é medida pela extensão de sua recusa em permitir que essas dificuldades a ditem & ditem quem ela vai se tornar.”

“I am learning everyday to allow the space between where I want to be & where I am… inspire me – not terrify me!” Sometimes it’s easy to forget His promises & grow weary along the way but what will determine if I’ll achieve all He has to do in & through me it’s my faith in the One who has called me despite all my flaws & failures!! I keep my eyes up to Him who is faithful till the very end!! ❤
“Eu estou aprendendo todos os dias permitir que o espaço entre aonde eu quero estar & aonde eu estou… Me inspire – não me assuste!” ás vezes, é fácil esquecer as promessas d’Ele e ficar cansado ao logo do caminho mas o que vai determinar se eu vou alcançar tudo o que Ele tem pra fazer em & através de mim é a minha fé n’Aquele que me chamou apesar de todas as minhas imperfeições e falhas!! Eu mantenho meus olhos pra cima para Aquele que é fiel até o fim!! ❤

Burst My Bubble

That’s how I feel after coming out from a safe environment that I used to find myself in back in Australia, “the college bubble” – It’s how we used to call it.

And for most of the alumni students, a big question mark pops up in their heads as soon as they step out of college, trying to force them to have it all figured out & well planned and that’s when they find themselves stepping into the great unseen, totally uncertain & doubtful!

The reality is that the unknown may scare you in the beginning because you don’t know what to expect & what’s ahead but sometimes the only certain you need to have is that you actually don’t need to know – you don’t need to have it all together – and this is fine! it’s okay! But keep in mind that THE ONE who has called you has it all together – has it all planned, He’s got all figured out & He won’t leave you or forsake you, THE ONE who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion (Philippians 1:6), because He is good & his grace is sufficient for us! Just keep pressing on.. keep believing – Your fears & uncertainties can’t be bigger than what God has in store for your future – His Great plan, yet to be unfold, it will be beautifully revealed in your next steps, just don’t give up now! this is just the beginning!

“If you focus on what you’ve left behind, you’ll never be able to see what lies ahead.”

 

Love Story

My story is written in His love story – The most beautiful love story ever told! An everlasting LOVE that will never end & never leave me! No matter what I’ve done, no matter what I do or what I’ll possibly do in the future His unending LOVE will always be there waiting for me & my heart bursts into joy when I think that NOTHING can separate me from this LOVE, NOTHING can come between us, NOTHING can make it end. A beautiful love beyond all my understanding has gracefully saved me!

Minha história esta escrita em Sua história de amor – A mais linda história de amor já contada! Um AMOR que dura pra sempre que nunca vai acabar e que nunca vai me deixar! Não importa o que eu fiz, não importa o que eu faço ou o que eu possivelmente posso fazer no futuro, Seu amor sem fim estará sempre lá a me esperar & meu coração explode em alegria quando eu penso que NADA pode me separar deste AMOR, NADA pode ficar entre nós, NADA pode fazê-lo acabar. Um amor tão lindo que vai além de todo o meu entendimento tem me salvado através de Sua graça!

WHAT’S STOPPING YOU?

screen-shot-2016-10-23-at-9-31-49-amO que está te impedindo de ser a melhor versão de vc mesmo ou de fazer o que Deus tem colocado no seu coração ou de começar algo que vc sempre quis fazer? Ele está prestes a fazer algo novo, Ele tem novos caminhos & novos rios para vc explorar – abrace o novo e confie nos caminhos que Ele está te levando – eles podem parecer assustadores no começo mas certamente é o melhor lugar pra vc estar nesse momento presente – Ele está com vc e Ele é Aquele que está te guiando então seja forte e corajoso! Não há nada a temer!! Isaías 43:18-19 “Não vos lembreis das coisas passadas, nem considereis as antigas. Eis que faço uma coisa nova, agora sairá à luz; porventura não a percebeis? Eis que porei um caminho no deserto, e rios no ermo.”

What’s stopping you from being the best version of yourself or to do what God has put in your heart or to start something you always wanted to do? He is about to do something new, he’s got new roads & new rivers for you to explore – embrace the new and trust the paths He is leading you to – they might be scary at the beginning but it’s certainly the best place to be at this present moment – he is with you and he is the One leading you so be strong & courageous! there’s nothing to fear!! Isaiah 43:18-19
“Forget about what’s happened; don’t keep going over old history.
Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new. It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it?
There it is! I’m making a road through the desert, rivers in the badlands.”

It takes courage to LOVE

In a world full of broken hearts is really hard to find the ones willing to take the risk and sacrifice themselves to make it worth it! Some are already conformed with the fact that love is really hard to find so they’re just fine to find someone good to spend their lives with, some others had so many bad experiences in relationships that they think love is just like that and there are others who are just too afraid of commitment, which make them keep flirting with girls/guys with no further interest, and that’s the topic I want to talk about on this post.

It’s unfortunate that this is the world we’re living in right now!! A world that people think someone’s heart is made of paper and they can just knead it and throw it away when they feel like.. But don’t get me wrong! I don’t think flirting is bad, I really think It’s healthy and necessary when you are interested in someone and want to purse their heart, but please! if you are not willing to do that – don’t waste someone’s time! The incapacity of people to believe that there are still people worth fighting for is limiting them to find love!!

YOU are worth more than you know, YOU are prettier than you think, YOU are way more valuable than you imagine, if someone can’t see that or can’t treat you like that, don’t waste your time and your thoughts with this person, there will be someone brave enough to be fully committed to you, with no fear – no doubts and this person will move heaven and earth to be with you!

The Beauty of Waiting

This is just a little reminder that seasons are not forever they come & go – Don’t think the hardship you are facing right now is going to last forever because it won’t – these leafs had to fall in order to other new/beautiful ones to come out and it’s the same with us – let go the things that have holding you back & be brave enough to enter the winter where you might have to question why but know that it’s where God will be carrying you the most and showing you the beauty of waiting & trusting him so that you will be ready to enter the spring and be totally renewed & refreshed by the amazing things God will perform in your life – Be ready to flourish, Darling!! The bright future is just a season away… XOXO

“Because he loves me,” says the Lord,

I will rescue him;

I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

He will call on me, and I will answer him;

I will be with him in trouble,

I will deliver him and honour him.

With long life I will satisfy him

and show him my salvation.”

– Psalms 91:14-16
