{Psalms‬ ‭104:1‬}
Bless the LORD, O my soul! O LORD my God, You are very great; You are clothed with splendor and majesty.

I just can’t get over the exquisite beauty of snowflakes! The intelligent design in this one single tiny snowflake is undeniable. It bursts of displaying a Creator who delights in His creation.

A p e r s o n a l Creator.
A c r e a t i v e Creator.
A m a j e s t i c Creator.

A Creator who rejoices over every single little detail – even the ones we humans don’t even notice.

If He is like this with one single snowflake out of an infinite number of snowflakes that has graced this earth – a snowflake that is here momentarily and gone within seconds – how is He like with humans beings that He has made in His own image?

Oh, once you’re in the folds of God’s love,
once you drink from the rivers of His delight,
once you are lead by Him to green pastures and peaceful streams,
You will n e v e r be the same!

Your heart will be so overcome with love for Him that you won’t know what to do with yourself. Your heart will feel like bursting in deep love for Him as your eyes soak in the pages of His holy word. Every word will incite delight to your heart as you drink in His living waters and eat His bread. You will become utterly amazed at every single bit of His creation.

Because you’ll be in love with the Creator.

Pause and reflect on the glorious design in this tiny snowflake and sing praises to Him with all of your heart!

HE is L O V E L Y.
HE is W O R T H Y.
HE is G L O R I O U S.

{Psalm 36:8}
They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.

{Psalm 23}
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil:
for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil;
my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

{Ephesians 3:17-19}
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

{John 4:14}
But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

{John 6:35}
And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

Just a Tiny Snowflake…

15940523_1008196182620504_543150145232440873_n.jpg

Oh! The beauties of God’s creation testifies of His love and supreme creativity. How He can create something that is so tiny, to where human beings can’t even see with our naked eye, yet so complex, intricate, unmistakably designed….

It makes my heart beat faster for Him.

The true devastation is that we humans take this for granted. We don’t give Him the praise for His creation as He deserves. We were born and grew up into a world full of beauty and grace, breath and love.

So to our foolish eyes, it has become c o m m o n to us. Such a misfortune when we walk about this world our entire lives, without really basking in the beauty of creation from the hand of our Creator.

This tiny microscopic snowflake right here is proof of a Creator. Yes, proof. Look at it, let your eyes feast on it. How did this come from nothing, without a Designer? There is absolutely no way. This should be enough for the human heart and mind to be settled that there is a God. But not any God – this one little bit of beauty displays God’s own divine beauty in His character and His attributes.

Here are just a few that I could come up with in my limited mind. This one snowflake displays His….

Love: because a God who didn’t love wouldn’t take the time to make something so glorious. Care: because the winter season gives the soil rest and makes way for new life. Creativity: because look at this. Sustenance: water needed for life. Endless glory: because there are no two snowflakes alike, and think about all the snow on earth from the beginning of time until now. Grace, tenderness, exquisiteness, majesty, power, mercy, devotion, commitment, sweetness…this one snowflake says so much about Him!

The God who made each and every snowflake also gave you each breath that you’re breathing this very moment. Give Him the breath that He so lovingly gave you back to Him in praise. Love and adore Him. He is so worthy of our honour and praise. He is so beautiful and holy.


‭‭{Isaiah‬ ‭55:6-11‬}
Seek the LORD while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near. Let the wicked change their ways and banish the very thought of doing wrong. Let them turn to the LORD that he may have mercy on them. Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously. “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. “The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.”
‭‭{Psalms‬ ‭147:15-18‬}
He sends his orders to the world— how swiftly his word flies! He sends the snow like white wool; he scatters frost upon the ground like ashes. He hurls the hail like stones. Who can stand against his freezing cold? Then, at his command, it all melts. He sends his winds, and the ice thaws.

‭‭{Romans‬ ‭1:19-20‬}
They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.

We’re Beautiful in God’s Eyes

14937410_954860031287453_6150512705487222874_n.jpg

Never think that you’re not beautiful just the way you are. That’s an evil lie. You were created by Beauty Himself. He’s the one who defines beauty, and you came from His mind, His heart, His pleasure. If you are a child of God, you are more beautiful than you can ever know because God sees you as flawless. You’ve been cleansed and made righteous and He sees His own beauty in you. You’re His treasure, and One glance at Him makes His heart beat faster. You’ve got Him, He’s in love with You.

And He thinks you are beautiful.

Let your inward beauty of a soul that loves God shine through your physical beauty. Place more importance on walking with Jesus closely and intimately than on outward beauty. Because outward beauty will always fade. It will never remain. Our bodies on earth are temporal and we are constantly aging. Do not put your hope and happiness on your outer appearance. I used to do that, but it only left me feeling empty inside.

That was until the supreme lover Himself poured His love inside of me.

Once that happened, He made me feel so beautiful, just as I am, plain and full of physical imperfections. But oh, I have the glorious God living in me.

The beauty one possesses of a heart deep in God is far above any physical beauty. Fall in love with Jesus, and let your true beauty shine. We shine because we were made to love the One who made us.


“You are altogether beautiful,
my darling,
And there is no blemish in you.
You have captured my heart, my treasure, my bride.
You hold it hostage with one glance of your eyes
Your love delights me,
my treasure, my bride.“
‭‭{Song of Songs‬ ‭4‬}

We’re His treasure, we’re His bride. We are so beautiful in His eyes.

The Fire of God

14064227_888314511275339_7780168827774104204_n

God is a consuming fire. And once He sets a fire inside of a human’s heart, that fire will never cease. It’s a fire that never goes out. The fire of the Holy Spirit will burn in your heart for Him and only Him. You will be consumed by Him, be enthralled with Him, devoted to Him–as He is with you. Our minds will be fixated on Him, our hearts lovesick for Him, our souls longing for Him night and day, and night and day, night and day. It’s so good, and makes everything else in this world bland in comparison to Him – the King of Kings! A God so beautiful that if our natural eye saw Him for only a fraction of a second, we would go insane. Our human physical and mental state could not handle the fullness of the glory of God.

But once He sets a fire in your heart, you can experience Him and see Him with everything inside of you. He lets us know Him. He lets us love Him. He lets our souls move closer and closer into His deep warmth, into His gentle sweetness. He lets us find refuge in Him and He lets us find protection in Him. He lets us come into His Holy presence.

Once you taste these things in the one true God, you will never, ever, ever, ever stop wanting more of Him. His fire inside the human soul burns forever.🔥

Let it burn in you, and you will come alive. 


{Hebrews 12:29}
“for our God is a consuming fire.” 

{Matthew‬ ‭3:11‬}
“He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” ‭‭

{Song of Solomon 8:6-7}
“love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the Lord. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it.”

Be Still and Know our Warrior

14051813_887254114714712_2893549542636814207_n

Be still and know that I am God.” {psalm 46:10}

These are God’s words to us. They’re so full of assurance and comfort. Of protection and leadership. This means to let your soul trust him. Soak each line in slowly:

be s t i l l 
and k n o w
that
H e  i s  G O D

To do this is to let go of trying and striving and KNOW that He is God and He WILL take care of you. You’re precious and a treasure in His sight and He overlooks nothing. It’s to know that He is invested in your life and nothing escapes Him. To know that your God is sovereign and in control. He fights for you and He delights in doing it.

To be still is to curl up into Him, letting your heart unravel before Him as you share with Him all of your concerns. But also being still in trusting that when you open your heart to Him and surrender yourself to Him, that He is God who is active in every aspect of your life and He is ordaining our steps. Even if at times things aren’t happening exactly the way we’d like or feels like He’s not doing much, being still and knowing that HE IS. He is. And that’s enough to know.

He wants you to keep trusting Him and know that He has plans for you. He wants you to keep turning to Him even when things don’t work out ideally in our minds. Being still is letting it fall into place without worrying, knowing your God goes before you. Letting God handle the situation and having peace about it.

{Exodus 14:14}
“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”

He is compassionate and also a warrior. He so delights in tenderly loving us and fiercely fighting for us.

I Just Want to be With Him

14021556_885658361540954_4214709855004362449_n

This world is beautiful, and I love living here. I love the life God gave me, and He satisfies my soul. But the closer I get to Him, the less appealing this world is. He makes everything else seem so dull in comparison. Just being in His presence hits me with such delight, joy, and a taste of Heaven; but all the while simultaneously experiencing a greater and deeper feeling of discontentedness in this world. Though He fully satisfies and fills me, there is this other part of me that becomes more and more dissatisfied and uncomfortable here. The more satisfied I am in Him, the less satisfying this world is. It’s a strong tension. Because I am both already a citizen of Heaven, but also living on earth. This world is not my home, and it only gets more and more apparent in my spirit.

This truth allows me to let everything go here, and give my whole self to God while I’m walking on this earth. I fully realize that I am here for Him and Him alone, for His purposes and His pleasure, and that I will one day see and experience all of the pleasures in eternity. This world may seem like it provides so much enticing gratification, so much of which seem difficult to let go of, especially for something we cannot tangibly grasp at this time. But just because we can’t see Him, doesn’t mean He’s not real. Nothing on earth could ever compare to the pleasures of being in God’s presence in paradise forever – the place He prepared for those who truly love Him.

If everyone had a momentary taste of what they could have in Heaven if they ask Jesus to be Lord over their life, every single person would let go of false treasures and fall to their knees before God and never be pulled by this world again. But that’s not what God wants. He wants our love and devotion because we want HIM and not a ticket to Heaven. We can’t see what God’s people are in for once they pass from this world to the next, but it will be unsurpassably beyond our wildest dreams. Thankfully, during my lifetime on earth, He allows me to escape into His arms.🌙💛

I just wanna be with Him.


{John 17:24}
“Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am”

{Philippians 3:20}
But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior.

{John 17:16-19
“They do not belong to this world any more than I do. Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth. Just as you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world. And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth.“

He Owns the Skies, Yet He Wants me

14088688_884991508274306_7598335271585425142_n

It sounds too good to be true. However, this is the purest truth that we can know. He is the majestic Creator full of divine splendour and love, full of beauty and grace, full of mercy and compassion. He’s the imminent, omnipresent, omnipotent God who, if we took a glimpse at Him with our naked eye, would be too much our minds to handle. We would go mad if we saw Him for just a fraction of a second.

Thankfully, in Christ, He cleansed us of all unrighteousness and made us holy and blameless in His sight. We’re His saints. His people. And as we are continuously growing and being sanctified here on earth, we will one day be fully in His presence, perfect and full of glory. We will be like Him, equipped to see His glory. In this fallen world, we’re not able to see Him.

But, thanks be to God, we can experience His everlasting full presence, closeness, communion, and relationship. Though we can’t see Him, we can see Him in the way He loves us. We can see Him in everything He made. Look at the skies, in a splendour so great it leaves us in awe. The One who owns the skies wants our hearts, and He will pursue us for our devotion. He will guide us and allure us to Himself, where He will tenderly bring us into oneness with Him. I am so thankful that he allows us to enter into an eternal, loving relationship with Him. He is sky-mazing.


{Hosea 2:14}
“But then I will win her back once again. I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her there.”

{1 John 3:2}
“We know that when He comes and is revealed, we will [as His children] be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is, in all His glory.” Yes, something that sounds too good to be true can indeed be the most piercing truth there is. Piercing like a double-edged sword

{Hebrews 4:12}
“For the word of God is living and active and full of power. It is sharper than any two-edged sword”

We’ll be swept away from this place one day by the most beautiful, loving, enchanting Being in existence.

Song of Songs 2:10
“Arise, my love, my fair one,
And come away.”

Our Thirst for God

14063989_883831341723656_5627061374244093867_n

There is a deep thirst in our soul that only God can quench. It is unquenchable by anything else.

We thirst for the true God. We thirst for the One who made our hearts. We thirst for our Creator, our Saviour, our everything. We thirst to be close to Him.

And until He quenches that thirst, we will only to continue to thirst.

Once you encounter the living God, and experience the Spirit of Jesus and His presence, no longer will you thirst. You will be drinking from the water of life. No longer will you be satisfied with anything lower than Him. All other things in this life becomes blurred like a wet black and white painting on a canvas, and ALL you can see is Him: clear, bright, shining, glorious.

As your eyes of love cut towards Him, He’s powerfully moved by you. He drinks in your love and feasts on your worship. He feels deeply for those who belong to Him. And His feelings are of intense love. Once you become a new creature, baptized with the fire of the Holy Spirit, you will never again thirst for anything less than God Himself. Nothing else can or will ever satisfy! He is it. We receive from Him, and He receives from us. Separation ceased, we become one with our God in sweet everlasting relationship.

Only God can give us exactly what we need perfectly, and oh! How He does it so completely and with master skill.👑💕

{Psalm 42:2}
“My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.“

{John 4:14}
“But whoever takes a drink of the water that I will give him shall never, no never, be thirsty any more. But the water that I will give him shall become a spring of water welling up (flowing, bubbling) continually within him into eternal life.”

{Ephesians 2:4}
“But God–so rich is He in His mercy! Because of and in order to satisfy the great and wonderful and INTENSE love with which He loved us,”

{Zephaniah 3:17}
“For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”

{Song of Solomon 6:5}
“Turn your eyes from me; they overwhelm me.”

Faithful and True

14102420_883126585127465_317479140540092407_n

Do you realize that there is way more to this life than living, working, going home, doing the dishes, driving to and fro, errand running, grocery shopping, hanging out with friends, getting heartbroken, getting car insurance, watching tv, eating popcorn, going out to eat, piling up money, attaining career goals, and cutting the grass?

There’s just more. Immensely more.

Before I came to Christ, I honestly didn’t know why I was here. Everything was a big mystery with no solid answers, such as we evolved from apes and we have no meaning. I would honestly wonder why I’m even here. What’s the point? What’s the point of doing anything – like reaching goals, doing the dishes, and planting a garden, if we’re just going to die and cease to exist. There seemed to be no purpose behind anything. We’re just here, life formed out of nothing, with no ultimate purpose, and then we die, leaving it all behind, having no clue why we even existed.

But there are more answers than we think.

This feeling in our lives of no purpose or true meaning is a sad and dreadful place to be. I was there. Until God came into my life, then it all changed…and it changed more than I could have ever imagined. I received purpose. Meaning. Love. Salvation. Fullness. Security. And I received an inheritance of Heaven and God Himself.

There is no bliss greater than a soul lovingly in God’s tender hands.

We don’t have to put all our hope in this world, when there is a greater hope, a greater promise for the world to come. One that will never end. And one that is better than this.

His promises are real and secure. He is a faithful God who is true in all he does.

{2 Peter 1:4}
“For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust.”

{Revelation 19:1}
“I heard something like a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God;”

{Revelation 21:4-7}
“and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.” And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” Then He said to me, “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost. He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be their God and they will be My children.”

If you love God, just know that your life has more meaning than you could ever comprehend. You belong to the Creator, and you’re going somewhere beyond our wildest imaginations. We are free to let go of this world and chase after Him.

Be Grateful for Him

14088605_881937735246350_6098476067433685741_n

Sometimes it can be hard to feel true, deep gratitude because this world is full of wrongs. It’s hard to see good when the bad is always acknowledged and highlighted. It’s hard to see the love when we see so much hate. But we have so much to be grateful for! There is so much goodness and love in this world that God has given us, and it’s a goodness that doesn’t come from us, but from Jesus. There is no goodness without Him. His goodness is what sustains every living being. His goodness is what gives us breath. Without the goodness of God, we would cease to exist.

Be grateful that despite this rocky world, we have been given life and breath and sight and love. That we are not alone or living for no reason or purpose, but that we have a God who made us, who loves us, and who offers a way to eternal life. In Jesus, you can have paradise forever, past this life. Your only hope does not have to be in this lifetime. You can look forward to something so much better! If you think there is beauty in this world, it doesn’t even slightly compare to the place that God has prepared for those who love Him. 

{1 Corinthians 2:9}
“Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and which have not entered into the heart of man, all that God has prepared for those who LOVE Him.”

As lovers of God, when we awaken in the morning and drink deeply the truth of why we’re here and where we are going, it fills our heart with pure and overflowing gratitude.

HE is so much to be grateful for!
