God encouraged me so much after I was pretty disappointed with the things I'm not seeing and would want to see, so I cried out to Him and He came to my rescue. I want to encourage the dreamers out there with the words He told me:

I've learned something awesome and I wanted to share it with you. We all know the story where Jesus speaks with a Samaritan woman at the Jacob's well. It's interesting how many mysteries there are in that passage. I've never thought of it like that. Let's see. The first interesting thing is that Jesus sat down at the Jacob's well. This well which represents all our corruption, all of the mixture, all the clever I-want-to-be-better-than-everybody-else...the old well. This well was closed by Jesus, because as He came, He SAT down. A Well sitting on a well. He really is a well. He closed a stream and opened up a living stream. Suddenly a woman came with a container and wanted to draw water. Jesus said to her: “Please give me a drink.”, but He spoke in mystery, going deeper, wanting to touch her heart not just have water. He was trying to bring her to think in a different realm, but she kept thinking about all the differences between him and her, where they worship, how they worship, Jerusalem, the mountain, questioning how He can give her living water...she was totally mixed up.

In August I was on a trip with my youth group and we hiked a lot enjoying the great view. First, we went to an adventure park and it was very challenging, because I don't have so much strength in my hands (sadly, that's a fact). We had to face obstacles and to have faith that we can do anything if we don't give up in the middle of it. We had to concentrate, exceed our limits, trust in our ability to do it, have fun, be equipped, climb, go on despite uncertainty, leave our fear of height out and not remain caught in the net (oh my goodness, this was the hardest). But I really liked it... There was a point I thought I can't do it, that was Tarzan's net. My strength faded away and I was feeling so powerless and useless to move, but then with my sister encouraging me and with time I did it and was happy to get finish that track :)

A post from me again, finally! In the past weeks, I've often been concerned about my outward looks and how I'm not gaining weight even though I eat a lot, how I look like a teenage girl, how white my skin is, how my hair isn't standing as I want it to, how my eyes change their color and so on and so forth. So many unnecessary cares, but still they suddenly pop up and you see yourself facing them. I'm writing this because I realized that outward beauty isn't what makes a person although many think that. But as I think about my experiences with people I have good memories of those who weren't beauty-queens on the outside, but marvelous and amazingly beautiful on the inside!

I wanted to write about how God knows every detail of our lives and how He brings everything together to really work for our good, even though we sometimes mess things up. I will write about something amazing from my life which made me love Him more!
When I was little I clearly remember playing the piano which was in our living room. I wasn't learning to play it or taking courses. I was just playing foolishly. I loved going there, taking lyrics of the worship songs from our church and play whatever key I felt like pushing and singing to it. I used to register myself singing using a tape recorder. I often went there and my memories are very vivid.

The previous week we had a great meeting at our youth group and God has shown our leader something amazing which I wanted to share to all of you. I want to keep it short, so here it is:
The basic Scripture: John 1:19-28
Our identity is primarily influenced by three very important things in our lives:
- our goal/ our perspective;
- our living/ our behavior;
- our accomplishments/ fruits/ successes;
- we will proceed toward a good goal
- our behavior will prove it alongside
- we will see accomplishments (reach the goals that we've set)

Here comes something that has been very close to my heart, or even better: it is part of my life. This is like the story of my life. It's something that really describes what I've been through on my journey on this earth! God is so perfect that every minute of my life makes sense and I find my delight totally in Him!
