Two weeks ago, as I'm writing this text, I was in my boyfriend's parents' house talking to my boyfriend's dad about my life and how difficult it was being to find a job and how the impact of my last two jobs had impacted me. It was a fragile and emotional moment, especially to talk … Continue reading [WID0061] Guest Post by Rebeca: Invisible Faith
To Enjoy Enjoying
I wrote this piece 2,5 months after I arrived in Portugal. That's now three years ago. I'm getting back to these pieces and texts I'm finding that I wrote before. To still share them, yes, but also to enlighten me. It's funny to see that three years ago I had these same thoughts or actually … Continue reading To Enjoy Enjoying
Faith Versus Fate
I have been reading the Bible from Genesis to Revelation for about two or three years now I think. Starting first with a chapter a day, then to two chapters a day and now back to one chapter a day. Today I started (re-)reading the book of Acts, where I noted the following: Acts 1:24-36 … Continue reading Faith Versus Fate
It's a new year, a new month, a new week and a new lap has begun. Everything is new and it's always a refreshing feeling. On the first day of this year I read the last day of a Christmas devotional I was still doing. And I would love to share it with you today. … Continue reading New Future
Faro, Portugal: My Gethsemane
My Gethsemane. When this year I watched The Garden by Michael Todd and Transformation Church I learned that Gethsemane means oil press or the Place of Pressure. And if you have been following the blog, you can see that this year for sure started (and went on) in pressure. My baby cousin had just died … Continue reading Faro, Portugal: My Gethsemane
I love the fact that You have several names. It’s a neverending list of all the names of Good, the names of Love You have. I remember starting a list in my notebook or journal of all the names You are called in the Bible. This is when I started to read the Bible from … Continue reading Neverending
I’m Tapping In!
For some days now I have been leaving this one box unchecked on my to-do list: write down His promises and tap in to His faithfulness! Why I haven't made time for this earlier I do not know, but I am very happy I finally did. I'm assertive, I'm a warrior and I can be … Continue reading I’m Tapping In!
From My Appeal To Yours
30-11-2022Today I finished watching this episode and at the end of the sermon, during the appeal, I give my life to Jesus again. I give my life to Jesus. My life is His. I am His. Every failure, every sin is paid for by Him. He took it upon Himself. My pride, my selfishness, He … Continue reading From My Appeal To Yours
[WID0049] Guest Post by Rebeca: Don’t Worry, God Is In Control
When a season in life comes when it feels harder to handle things or more bad circumstances come around, as human beings, we are generated to start losing faith in the One that is always by our side. This year I lived to say: “Don’t worry, God is in control!” This year I prayed: “Thank … Continue reading [WID0049] Guest Post by Rebeca: Don’t Worry, God Is In Control
22-11-2022Yesterday I read the following verse: Matthew 16:24 [HCSB] - “Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow Me.” And I realized.. fasting and praying is also denying myself. Denying myself of that what I normally do and now choose … Continue reading Denying Myself
