I woke up this morning feeling a little weird. How come I’m still in bed. I looked at my clock and it says ‘7:30am’. Usually by that time I’m already up and getting ready for breakfast and for my day. But then it hit me, I’m not there anymore, I’m already here.. back home.
It’s been almost 10 hours ever since I landed here in California coming home from my missions trip in Cuba. I can’t believe it’s already over. Time went by so fast. The events and memories that took place for the past 7 days are still vividly fresh in my head and in my heart. Gosh how I loved those people in Cuba. How I admire their heart and hunger for God. 
God completely rocked my world when I was there. The way how I would look at worship, devotion, prayer, surrender, hunger, desperation, joy, celebration will never be the same again. Heck my christian walk will never be the same ever again. I wish I can tell you all the details as to how my trip went, but I’m gonna have to be selfish this time, at least for now. Allow me to just soak and ponder in everything that just happened. But for now, this post shall do.
To close this post I wanna share a short convo I had with a girl who was the same age as me, who was also an upcoming worship leader and passionate about evangelism. Here’s how it went:

Mark: So why pursue God and give your life to Him instead of pursuing the things of this world?
Migdalia: He is better than anything in this world. He is all I’ve got. He is my everything. I wouldn’t trade Him for anything else. He is so good and He makes me happy.

Everytime I remember her response, I wanna cry. It was convicting and challenging at the same time. And I said to myself,  'Man, I want that. I want that kind of hunger and contentment. I want to be able to confidently say God is all I want and is all I will ever need in this world.'
This is just one, I have tons of these moments when I was there. And I can’t wait to share it with you all. Have a blessed week folks.

Father,

Sometimes it’s hard for me to see and understand the lengths that you went through just to show me how much you love me and how much you desire to have a relationship with me. You died on the cross for my sins and you rose from the grave to prove that You are victorious over sin and death. I serve a God who is sovereign, merciful, gracious and abounding in steadfast love. Would you give me the strength to love you and to follow you with everything that I’ve got. To make you not just my top priority but my ONE & ONLY priority in life.

To You I give all the praise and Glory forever. AMEN!

God,

I don’t deserve an ounce or a fraction of all the things that You’ve given me and I am forever in awe of Your unfailing love and grateful of Your amazing grace. Truly You are more than enough for me.

A few days ago I had the opportunity to spend time with God at a nearby lake for 3 hours with no distractions, just me and Him. Reading His living Word and just talking with Him and wrestling some stuff with Him.
Honestly, we definitely need those times when we just get away from everything, even if it’s only for a few hours with the intention to seek God and His presence. I think God honors those desires when we genuinely seek His face and we desire to have an intimate fellowship with Him.
As I was sitting down, looking at the lake, the mountains, the trees, and all the intricacies of His majestic creation, I can’t help but just sit there in awe and marvel upon His greatness and glory. In Psalm 19 says:

The heavens declare the glory of God and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. - Psalm 19:1-2

And then I thought how amazing His hands are. How great and how majestic are His ways. And then it HIT ME.
The same God who created the Universe, who created Heaven and Earth, who created every breathing and living thing on this earth, is the same God who created ME. The very same hands He used to create EVERYTHING is the very same hands He used to create me. He didn’t have to create me, but HE DID.

For you formed my inward parts;you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made - Psalm 139:13-14

He actually took the time to knit me together perfectly. He could’ve just stopped right after He created those beautiful mountains, trees, lakes, the whole universe, but He thought of YOU and ME! 
So if you’re reading this right now. I want you to drop what ever you’re doing right and just stop and take a moment to talk to God and thank Him for your existence.
Maybe some of you feel like taking your own life because you think you’re fat, ugly, anorexic loser, worthless, stupid, addict, poor, lonely, and the list goes on.. THAT’S A LIE. The enemy obviously wants to drag you down. I want you to realize that you are not an accident my beloved. You have a purpose and He has a PLAN for your life. The fact that you are breathing and alive, He has given you a once in a lifetime opportunity to enjoy life and have an intimate relationship with Him, live for Him and enjoy Him forever! 
It’s time to stop dwelling on your past and start moving forward with your Heavenly Father. He is crazy about you. He really is. He is waiting for you to run back to Him. 

Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. - Matthew 11:28
