Jesus speaks, always…

From 7 November Devotion from Jesus Calling book/app

WORSHIP ME in the beauty of holiness. All true beauty reflects some of who I AM. I am working My ways in you: the divine Artist creating loveliness within your being. My main work is to clear out debris and clutter, making room for My Spirit to take full possession. Collaborate with Me in this effort by being willing to let go of anything I choose to take away. I know what you need, and I have promised to provide all of that—abundantly!

Your sense of security must not rest in your possessions or in things going your way. I am training you to depend on Me alone, finding fulfillment in My Presence. This entails being satisfied with much or with little, accepting either as My will for the moment. Instead of grasping and controlling, you are learning to release and receive. Cultivate this receptive stance by trusting Me in every situation.

Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.
—Psalm 29:2 nkjv

One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.
—Psalm 27:4

But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever.
—Psalm 52:8

The Lord is our comfort. He is our assurance.

Thank you, Lord. You are the God of my life, have your way in me.

Reading is ♥

I love to travel, in every travel, one of my “must bring” is a book. I don’t always get the chance to read while on travel but in my heart I want to have that kind of vacation where I don’t have to do anything but just read leisurely, maybe under a coconut tree, with a lovely white-sand beach as my view, and a glass of tamarind shake to sip. 🙂

While in Manila, while living the daily life and working on weekdays, one habit I want to develop is reading. I am making progress but I want to allot more time in reading. This year, I downloaded the Goodreads app where there’s a “Reading Challenge” feature. My target is to read 12 books this year. So far, I only finished one book as of this writing.

Currently, there are 58 titles that I saved in the app which I want to read, well some of it, I’m already reading. The thing with me is I don’t focus on one book. I have around 5 books on hand which I read at different times.

This year, here are some of the books that I would like to read:

I hope I’ll be able to meet my target, or better yet, outdone myself. 😉

P.S. The classic books on the bottom right are mine, already on my shelf, waiting for me to give them my time and attention!! haha The rest are books in Fully Booked that I want to buy. 🙂
