Lost Some Weight :)

My progress. So I started a detox/portion control diet on March 1st but didn’t start recording my progress until March 5th. I was 116 and by March 25th, I was down to 105. Easter weekend was really hard on me. I wouldn’t be surprised if most everyone dieting also gained a few back, because I did….

God’s Peace

Matthew 11:28-30 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Being humble…

Loving God

In life, you will not go far if it isn’t God’s guidance and wisdom you desire. Desiring Him means loving others through a purpose driven life, one that is highly focused on Him.

Sorrows Into Joy

Even after all these years of being a Christian, I still struggle with trust. In all my relationships, God wants me to dearly cling onto Him. When I’m at my weakest (usually a few days out of the month…) I’m reminded of traumatizing experiences in my past. But without a relationship with the Lord, I…

My Peace of Mind

  Original art. 20″ x 24″ Oil on canvas. I painted this lovely scene in 2009, except it was much gloomier and quite depressing. Just last year, I decided it wasn’t finished and added colors that I believed my heart belted out if it wasn’t for joy. Then I decided it isn’t nearly done if…

How He Transforms Lives

If you’ve noticed lately that things have been causing you grief because nothing is going your way, God will continually put you in the same situations until you begin to be convinced that He’s trying to get your attention. He wants you to know that He’s about to make some changes in Your heart and…

God’s Confidence

God’s confidence is a bold and peaceful assurance. He gives it to those who genuinely seek to exchange their understanding for His wisdom. He refines their character and gives them a renewed outlook on life only if they are willing to change their ways. By His Grace, Sheela   SUBSCRIBE TO MY CHANNEL ~ Leighla93 FOLLOW…

Unusual Dream

​He sees every teardrop. He knows all your desires. He sees every effort. He knows more than you! Trust Him, He is guiding you! The other night I had a dream. I was driving a truck pretty fast on a pretty empty freeway. I don’t know why I was speeding. I felt I was not…

Made In His Image

Reminders on my bedroom ceiling. The first 10-20 minutes of your morning sets the tone for the rest of your day. I’ll be honest, I don’t read my Bible everyday, but I still try to fill my head with positive things so it’s actually a joy getting up out of bed. Looking through Tumblr is…

Lace Up

Father God, I love focusing on You. I know I don’t do it all the time, but when I do I remember how awful life is when I don’t. Every time You bring me to that point, I’m so grateful because I get to choose to want to change again. And every time I want…

Heart of Worship

I believe we are, some more than others thirsty for truth. The ones who are the least aware of it, suffer the most. We show that void in the way we treat others, we show it in the way we cope with challenging situations, how we go about our day, how we handle our money,…

The Purpose of Prayer

I wanted to share this from one of my favorite daily devotional books, called My Utmost For His Highest. It sums up everything I wish I could have put into my own words. God inspires great authors and He allows Oswald Chambers to encourage me to have a closer relationship with Him. ——————————————————————————————- “…one of…
