Behind The Smile

Why Smile is Wonder?

A long time ago, I read a quote that said something along the lines of, “Smile – It’ll make them wonder what you’re up to.” And I knew that I wanted to be up to something worth wondering about, with a smile.

As it happens, God has a dream for my life that is bigger than one I could have ever think of. I’ve been hesitant to step into the calling that He has made known to me, but He began this journey many moons ago, before I was even a twinkle in my mother’s eye.

My life has been full of struggle, but through it all, there has been a wondrous God walking faithfully by my side. The words that I will share in my posts and poetry are from my heart. They will be messy, raw, and honest expressions of who I was, who I am, and the person I am becoming.

It feels like putting my diary online for the world to see – which is terrifying, if I’m honest. But I hope that the words I share are a light in your darkness, a comfort when you feel alone, and used for God’s glory. And when I smile – I hope that you see how He has brought me joy, even in the darkest moments of my life. I hope that you wonder if He could do the same for you.

And I pray that you choose to seek Him because of it.

“You are a spirit that has a soul that lives in a body.”

– Pastor Alex Himaya

“The truth is that the Spirit of the living God is guaranteed to ask you to go somewhere or do something you wouldn’t normally want or choose to do. The Spirit will lead you into the way of the cross, as He led Jesus to the cross, and that is definitely not a safe or pretty or comfortable place to be. The Holy Spirit of God will mold you into the person you were made to be.”

– Francis Chan

“When you experience God’s grace, you will move closer to your target; the closer you are, the greater your chances of hitting the mark.”
