I will pray until I become prayer itself



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!

I am passionately in love with God
Because He listens to me.
He hears my prayers and answers them.

As long as I live I'll keep praying to Him,

For He stoops down to listen to my heart's cry.
Death once stared me in the face and
I was so close to slipping into its dark shadows.
I was terrified and overcome with sorrow.
I cried out to the Lord,
"God, come and save me!"
He was so kind, so gracious to me!
Because of His passion toward me,
He made everything right and He restored me!
So I've learned from my experience, 
That God protects the child-like and humble ones.
For I was broken and brought low,
But He answered me and came to my rescue! 
Now I can say to myself and to all,

Relax and rest, be confident and serene, 

For the Lord rewards fully

Those who simply trust in Him!

God has rescued my soul from death's fear and
Dried my eyes of many tears.
He's kept my feet firmly on His path
And strengthened me so that I may live my life before Him
In His life-giving light!
Even when it seems I'm surrounded
By many liars and my own fears;
And though I'm hurting in my suffering and trauma,
I still stay faithful to God and I speak words of faith.
So now, what can I ever give back to God
To repay Him for the blessing He's poured out on me?
I will lift up His cup of salvation

And praise Him extravagantly

For all that He's done for me! [...]
Lord, because I am Your loving servant,
You have broken open my life
And freed me from my chains.
Now I'll worship You passionately and bring to You
My sacrifice of praise, drenched with thanksgiving!

God knows the desires of your heart (2)

God is really amazing. He amazes me every time. I was planning to buy myself a laptop, because I really needed one. I have a PC which I used and which was very faithful to me :) As I started my Master's Degree I needed a laptop, because I had to go to the city where I'm studying every weekend.

I know (because I've experienced it) that when you need something then you have to sow a seed first, on which God can turn water. So my sister who had to write her diploma paper and needed a laptop to work on Photoshop, Web design, etc. more than I needed it then. I really wanted to help her, so I took the opportunity to bless somebody with the exact thing I need and let God take my wish over. Thus I decided to give her some money. She bought a Dell and she wrote an awesome diploma paper and still uses it with such a blessing. She is a very talented "Photoshopist", web designer, journalist, etc. I was very happy for her and I knew God knows the time when I'll have my lap…

Jesus is coming soon, be prepared

The previous week I was so overwhelmed with my tasks at the university and the exams. I'm a "born" perfectionist and I always like to do everything the best way I can. I was so busy that I didn't have time to do my homework the way I wanted to do them and it was such a big burden. I didn't sleep enough and I was always thinking how to work everything out. I was burnt-out at the end of the week when I had to go to the courses and exams. My sisters tried to encourage me, but I was exhausted. God each and every time gave me encouragements, but I still felt the pressure of these things. As I was taking a bath, I listened to a sermon on my cell phone (I usually like to do that... hihi). Through that sermon God spoke to me and I was really touched by what the preacher said about grace. A sentence caught my attention, it was like this: "The Christians should hang on a rope upon the hell for a few minutes to see and realize what God rescued us from." He also to…
