Moving Out...and An Invitation

Hey there!

This year has been a very significant one for me in my personal walk of faith.  I have felt the hand of God move in a very distinct way, unmistakable, and very deliberate.  It's a life-changing journey, unlike any other experiences I have had in the past.

All I can say is that I am extremely grateful for what God has started to do in my life this year. No amount of words can fully describe what I've been through.  Truly His grace and abounding love never cease to amaze me.

As the year draws to an end, I am all the more excited and really looking forward to what 2016 has in store for me and for all of you. It's not just the coming of a new year but really what God has set in motion, His wonderful purposes for our lives.  

In the past month, I've been dabbling over to a new online "home."  As I do, it became more certain that I would be putting most of my writing efforts there for now.  I'm not sure exactly what I will do with this blog, so I will leave it as it is for now.  But I'd like to invite you to come visit me over at my new "home."  

A Soul Redeemed

Here's to a new beginning!  Hope to see you there! Let's have a cup of coffee, and cookies maybe?

God bless us all!

{Day 31}: Almost..But Not Quite

Today's word prompt: ALMOST

Thumbs up @ Freedigitalphotos
Oh yes!  Almost done!  Well, yes almost, because I have yet to finish this post and have it published.  But I'm just giddy and excited.  Time flew by and now we come to the end of the challenge.  

It's been a month of remembering God's faithfulness in my life.  It's indeed a journey of faith and God was with me every step of the way, in the silence or in the gentlest of whispers to the storms and the crashing waves, He was ever present.  

In the middle of this month, also right smack in the middle of this challenge, I had my leap of faith when I decided to be baptized, finally.  And that moment has really been a turning point in my journey of faith.

{Day 30} What Can You Do In Five Minutes?

Five @ Freedigitalphotos
I'm skipping the word prompt for this day as I write this a day ahead.  I will be on vacation starting Friday so, I'm doing this now.

It's been an exciting ride doing this challenge and it's almost done. Woohoo!

{Day 29}: The Sea Or the Shore?

Today's word prompt: SEA

As a child, I have always been fascinated by the sea.  Living in the asphalt jungle for most of the time, the excitement to be near the sea is understandable right?  I remember those visits to my grandparents' home many years ago in the northern part of the island.  They live in an old house that was just a few minutes to the beach.  And our trip to the province would never be complete without visiting that secluded part of the beach overlooking South China Sea.  We would avoid the more commercialized and crowded beaches.  I guess we loved having the beach to ourselves, despite the lack of amenities.

{Day 28}: Hope in God's Words

Today's word prompt: HOPE

The Bible is rich in verses that give us hope.  In fact, reading through the whole of the Bible gives us this kind of assurance in things we do not see but know of, by faith. Here are just some that I'd like to share and are good to remember when we are in the midst of trials and hardships or when it's hard to hang on faithfully.  These are words that encouragement and uplift us and indeed, give us hope that everything will be alright.  Because we know that God's got things under His control.
