I want to live each day as if is my last

#seizetheday #carpediem

"So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. 16 Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days." Ephesians 5:15-16
EnJOYing a special day 
A dear friend invited us to help her to fix a ceiling area on her basement, so we got all the equipment
and supplies needed for our work! But, we decided to have some fun and make the most of our day!

Fooling around with an old blanket (stained with red paint)
Enjoy each second of life! Even on a hard day, working on an old basement ceiling!
After work prize! Fried calzone, margherita pizza, fried calamari and more...

End of the night - we went to see the movie Lalaland (awesome!) and here we are pretending
that we are sleeping on the theater lol
By the way, the movie soundtrack is so great! I can't stop listening to it #jazzlover

Find Joy on your everyday!
“Go and celebrate with a feast of rich foods and sweet drinks, and share gifts of food with people who have nothing prepared. This is a sacred day before our Lord. Don’t be dejected and sad, for the joy of the Lord is your strength!” Nehemiah 8:10

Living all out for God

Our life here is temporary. Our home is not here!!
My life's desire is to bring glory to God in everything I do! I want to live all out for him! I want people to know that God matters to me! I don't want a lukewarm life. I don't  want to just try to survive from day to day!
I want my heart to be open to all the things that comes from a real relationship with God! 
God knows me through and through, I want to know him too! I want to enjoy Him, not just know about Him

God Sightings

Sometimes in life we must hurry. But overall, life should be less hurrying and more noticing...
Life is the present!

Life is being aware; it is seeing God's love breaking through. It is turning aside to the miracle of something like a sunrise. Something transitory, yet, symbolic of the eternity that await us.

In the midst of the busyness and the stresses of our days, there are patches of beauty all around us, glimpses of God's goodness that we catch here and there along the way. These are the places in the walls of the universe where heaven is breaking through, lets stop and reflect upon God's love for us.

I am learning to see God's love for me in the details of my daily life.

And Moses said, “I will turn aside to see this great sight." Exodus 3.3

I am not done yet!

My destiny... my fate...

"Everyone believes the world's greatest lie... that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what's happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. That is the world's greatest lie." -Paulo Coelho

At the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, North Caroline you will find the the tombstone of Ruth Bell Graham. Her tombstone bore an unusual inscription:
I just loved this!! God is not done with us yet, please be patient!

The Bible says that "being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Phillipians 1:6
God planned our lives! and His plans are great :D
"For I know the plans I have for you, 'declares the Lord,' plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29.11

Being content

Resentment comes from looking at others; contentment comes from looking at God!  He is rich who is satisfied with what he has!
I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. 
Philippians 4:11
 “No one can receive anything unless God gives it from heaven." John 3.27- be content with what you got!

Contentment is a choice. So choose today to bloom where you’re planted. Choose to make the most of whatever situation you find yourself in. Choose to stop focusing on what you don’t have and start being thankful for the many blessings you do have.
Choosing contentment when the word tells you to strive for accomplishment!

GET YOUR "WANTER" FIXED - Contentment begins with having fewer wants.
And remember, no matter what difficulties you might be dealing with today, somebody else would love to be in your shoes.
"Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth.
After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it. So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content." 1 Timothy 6:6-8
Until you make peace with who you are, you'll never be content with what you have! 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. 2 Corinthians 12:10
Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
Fulfillment means to be completely satisfied! God is worthy more than any joy of this world! Nothing can fill the emptiness in your heart except God.
The greatest accomplishments you can have are contentment and contended relationship with God and other people.
People wait the whole week for Friday, the whole year for Summer, the whole life for happiness. Be different, transform everyday in Fridays, enjoy each season e don't let life goes by without to be happy!

A greatful person is rich in contentment! David Bednar

Bringing Christ to the people

We don't need to bring people to Christ; we need to bring Christ to them." (Jonathan McKee)

To the weak I became as weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. 1 Corinthians 9:22

If you have the opportunity to befriend non-Christians, focus on the things that will draw them close, not the things that will drive them away.

Be available! - who's going to tell your unsaved friends about Jesus?"
And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to His disciples, "Why does your Teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?"  Matthew 9:11
If we remove ourselves from those who need Jesus, we remove a lot of the opportunity they will have to meet Him. Count up your non-Christian friends. If you can do it on one hand, ask God for more.

When Jesus got baptized, he did with sinners, even though He had no sins to be wash away. Why? Because He wanted to identify with those He came to save. He came to seek and save the lost, so to the lost He went!
Take a Stand today!
"Young man … if I thought I could win one more soul for Christ by standing on my head and beating a tambourine with my feet, I would learn how to do it."

Invitation to Salvation / Convite para a Salvação / Invitación a la Salvación

              There is no more important question than the one asked by a Philippian jailer                    over two thousand years ago: "WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED?" Acts 16:30
              Jesus answered that question once and for all by taking the punishment for our                  sins upon Himself. We simply have to accept the free gift of salvation He offers.
               How do we do that? Simply follow four easy steps for receiving Christ:
               1- Admit your need - I am a sinner
               2- Be willing to turn from your sins and repent.
               3 -Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross and rose from the grave.
               4 - Pray a prayer like this:
Dear Heavenly Father,
I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus died for my sins and rose from the dead. I repent from my sins. I invite you to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. In Jesus name, amen!

"Yet to all who received him, those who believed in his name. he gave the right to become children of God." John 1:12

Here's a gospel presentation idea that you can use with girls - a wordless book presentation using nail polish!

Não há questão mais importante do que a que foi solicitada por um carcereiro de Filipos mais de dois mil anos atrás: "O QUE  DEVO FAZER PARA SER SALVO?" Atos 16:30
Jesus respondeu a essa pergunta de uma vez por todas, tendo levado o castigo pelos nossos pecados sobre si mesmo. Nós simplesmente temos que aceitar o presente gratuito da salvação que Ele oferece.

Como podemos fazer isso? Simplesmente seguindo quatro simples passos para receber a Cristo:
1 - Admita sua necessidade - Eu sou um pecador
2 - Esteja disposto a se converter dos seus pecados e se arrepender.
3 - Creia que Jesus Cristo morreu por você na cruz e ressuscitou dos mortos.
4 - Faça uma oração assim: 
Querido Pai Celestial,
Eu sei que eu sou um pecador, e peço o seu perdão. Eu creio que Jesus morreu pelos meus pecados e ressuscitou dos mortos. Me arrependo dos meus pecados. Convido-o a entrar no meu coração e vida. Quero confiar e seguir-Te como meu Senhor e Salvador. Em nome de Jesus, amém!

"Mas, a todos quantos o receberam, aos que crêem no seu nome. deu-lhes o direito de se tornarem filhos de Deus." João 1:12

No hay pregunta más importante que la pregunta de un carcelero de Filipos más de dos mil años atrás: "¿Qué debo hacer para ser salvo?" Hechos 16:30
Jesús respondió a esta pregunta una vez por todas, tomando el castigo por nuestros pecados sobre sí mismo. Simplemente tenemos que aceptar el regalo de la salvación que Él ofrece.

¿Cómo lo hacemos? Sólo tienemos que seguir cuatro pasos sencillos para recibir a Cristo:
1 - Admita su necesidad - Yo soy un pecador
2 - Esté dispuesto a alejarse de sus pecados y arrepentirse.
3 - Creer que Jesucristo murió por ti en la cruz y resucitó de la tumba.
4 - Ora una oración como esta: 
Querido Padre Celestial,
Sé que soy un pecador, y yo pido su perdón. Yo creo que Jesús murió por mis pecados y resucitó de entre los muertos. Me arrepiento de mis pecados. Te invito a que entres en mi corazón y vida. Quiero confiar en ti y seguirte como mi Señor y Salvador. En el nombre de Jesús, Amén!

"Mas a cuantos lo recibieron, a los que creen en su nombre, les dio el derecho de ser hijos de Dios.Juan 1:12
