Unveiled Faces 新耶路撒冷
Indeed, if we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, it would seem that Our Lord finds our desires, not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.
C.S. Lewis

// Making Decisions…//

Without God’s wisdom we make poor decisions. And our decisions have consequences. Ones made wholeheartedly to God, He sees and remembers forever. While ones made in sin/rebellion lead to suffering and pain that could affect not only an individual but also others for a long time.
He’s called a wise God for a reason. :)

// His power is made perfect in weakness//

My sins in the past, my worst mistakes, in Christ have become the greatest testimonies of God’s redemption in my life.
When you feel like you have failed, don’t give up hope. His arm is not too short to save! So that we may understand, our weaknesses reveal the depth of His saving power. :)

2 Cor 12
9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
10 For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Papa God painted a beautiful sunset today. Thankful to have seen so much beauty:)

// Against His love there is no law…//

God’s love has no boundaries & surpasses every obstacle. He doesn’t discriminate but loves ALL. So great is His love that it is disarming.

// Dreams do come true//

All my hope and dreams are true in the Lord my God. He is my dream come true (and wayy better!!!) 💛

The Lord said that if I want to be like Him and seek the things that are above instead of earthly things of the flesh then I must be a student of His Word.

Also, remember life on earth and everything in it is transient, they pass away quickly. Sin (selfishness, unforgiveness, lust, debauchery, living for yourself, etc) may bring short-lived pleasure of the moment, but in the end it is destructive.

Always keep an eternal perspective!!

Capturing la Biennale di Venezia on Instagram

Every two years, Venice, Italy, transforms into the center of the art world. Established in 1895, the Venice Biennale (La Biennale di Venezia) is a major contemporary art exhibition and the closest thing art has to the Olympics. Each of the 88 countries participating this year have selected promising artists to create elaborate installations in their designated national pavilions and palazzos. The installations are now open to the public and will be trafficked by more than 350,000 visitors before the Biennale closes on November 24.

One of my favorite things: 布丁💛
Saw this recipe while trying to use up extra milk I bought..
If I were in Taiwan I’d just buy it but unfortunately they don’t sell it in VA.

Took way longer than expected and next time I’d use less sugar but the delicious soft flan like texture made it all worth it:)

God does not command us to do things that He doesn’t do Himself.
Such as, “Don’t show favoritism.” James 2:1
And “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Matt 22:39

God loves His neighbors. He loves us as Himself :)
You are awesome God!!

My heart
it beats for this
