My roses are dead my violets are not blue but can I still say I love you?
I have started writing again but my time away from this blog has been for a reason. Only God knows the deepest of deepest inner heart feelings. Continuously broken and mixed. Wondering of doubts and closeness. God is truly The only one who I can go to, my father my all-time prince of peace.
A while ago I was listening to a podcast by pastor Craig Groeschel from Life Church. He was talking about encouraging yourself and how to stay positive in life. I don’t remember everything from the sermon but one thing that I do remember is when he start declaring his interdependence in Christ. I wrote it down and made it a little bit my own interdependence. The funny thing is that last year at the conference of my church he was there too and he and he talked about the same declaration. I decided to share this with all of you and, it could be that you already know it but if you don’t know it, you can make your own twist to it and declare this declaration day in, day out.
Keep on sowing your seed, for you never know which will grow—perhaps it all will. – Ecclesiastes 11:6 (TLB)
Recenly I got a revelation from God. I was working in a large department store for a famous parfume brand named Viktor & Rolf. My colleague and I needed to promoot the latest fragrance of that brand. We were dressed up in the most adorable outfit specially created by the designers V&K.
“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5
I have been writing about waiting on God and what that means to me. One thing that I have learned during my sabbatical journey is that I have to depend on the Lord always. Before I knew my husband, I was always the independent woman and also I was not a person who would ask anything from anybody. Not my family, not my friends, I would do it all on my own. I would always say I was born on earth alone so why should I ask anything from anybody.
Don’t you have these moments when you just feel like you need to preach to somebody?
Hey! Sometimes I feel like preaching to myself. Once in the Word the Holy Spirit is taking over, Hallelujah ;-). It is fun to talk about Jesus and I will not hide it under tables and chairs “for I am not ashamed of the gospel”…(my favorite Roman verse by the way).
It’s the fourth day of my Daniel fast. For the people who don’t know what the Daniel fast is you can find a detailed explanation on the website of allaboutprayer.org. This a short version of the way I explain it; The Daniel fast is based on the verses 2 and 3 of chapter 10 in the book of Daniel. Daniel was a determined man with clear ideals and to achieve this he did not hide his feelings for anyone and was not out to please man. On the contrary , he took a personal initiative to begin a fast that kept him focused on what was truly God’s will.
