“Break my heart. Break my heart into a thousand pieces.” After hearing this frase and seeing the gesture in the sequel To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You I went through a moment of reflection. It made me think:This is what Jesus does. This is what He has already done. Lara-Jean is in … Continue reading He Will Still Choose Us
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’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.

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.

Generosity Comes From The Heart
20-11-2022So today I learned to give. No, no, I learned to forgive others of their debt. This morning around 6:45h when I was praying sitting up in bed, God spoke to me. In the midst of the Lord's prayer: Mateo 6:12 - I pordoná nos nos debenan, meskos ku nos ta pordoná nos debedornan. Matthew … Continue reading Generosity Comes From The Heart
