My Grace is Sufficient

This last vintage quote art for the french linen texture series. I been praying of the right verse as the ending or the closing of this Christian motivation series. It is not an easy one. There are just too many wonderful verses and all of them are so prudent in my life.

The first quote art titled “Love never fails” reminded me God never fails. His love never fails. He never fails. And, He’s the anchor of my life. Conclusion, my live should not fail. I am not talking of having a failure free life, but rather a life in a guarded risk by my Heavenly Father. I am sure my Father won’t let me go astray. ūüėõ

The second quote art titled “My strength & my shield” is God telling me, He’s my armor (shield) in danger, and He’s my weapon (strength) to¬†overcome my challenges.

Now, the third quote art, also the closing, titled “My Grace is Sufficient”.

I remembered¬†the days ¬†before I know Christ,¬†I work my way up in cooperate leader. There isn’t other way. I don’t have a wealthy parent who allow me to fall back whenever I am tired or things don’t work out. So, I often¬†walk the extra miles, burn the midnight oil, not sleeping for nights, weekends and push myself to work, work and work. Deep down… I am very tired and end up with serious insomnia, relying on sleeping pills to sleep for¬†almost¬†2 years. I am desperate yet I can’t find a way out.

Then, I know about Jesus through a private event. It was then, I ask Jesus, why should I believe in you? The next things I know, a pastor walk up the stage and say “Child, you have nothing to lose anymore”. It was then, I began my journey being called a Christian, learning about Him in church and small group bible study. It has been almost 10 years now. My life is not a bed of roses, but I learn that I can rely on Him. His grace is sufficient for me.

My grace is sufficient 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 about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

2 Cor 12:9

I am weak, but He is strong. My life becoming a testimony of His glory. I quit from my jobs years ago trusting my Provider will provide. My Provider not only provide, but always provide more than enough. He took me through all the thick and thin in life. I wouldn’t ask for more. ūüôā

So, I like to dedicate this quote art to those who need this reminder…

You don’t have to worry about the challenges you are facing, because God won’t allow anything more than what you can bear. You don’t have to take everything in your hands and fight all the battle alone.
It is ok to be weak, so God can be strong in us. Let God be God and do wonders that only God can do.

My Shelter & Strength

The magic of a thoughtful art display is¬†unbelievable. You must have notice by now how much I love them. I have them all over my house, like every corner and every turn. I display them in a place I couldn’t miss and here is another one I adore where I place in another corner of my sunroom.

I love the grey in between brown color of this vintage inspiration quote art. It work amazingly with my earth tone furniture. The quote “God is our shelter and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble” from Psalm 46:1 is such a encouraging quote knowing that God favor is with me specially in my time of need.

Do you like my chrome deco?  I got the tree from a KKhome Deco shop in Melaka and the owl is from Thailand, a recent gift by my sister Amy.

My Christmas deco are all cleaned and kept for next year. The “Anchor of my life” quote art went into my lil girl room as the sailor bear belong to her too. They just need to be together-gether. ^.^

So, in the sunroom, I am happy with this new addition for now as I am planning for the coming Chinese New Year decoration. Oh, just so you know…Chinese New Year is another BIG celebration for us here. Some may even think it is a more celebrated event in this part of the world, with MORE MONEY to spend on food and “ang pao” (a form of gift in cash and wrap in red paper pocket, printed with prosperity quote on it).

So yeah..another busy season for me. >.<

Sailor Christmas

I live in a country where everyday is a summer. I won’t need to check on the weather report to plan on what cloths to wear the next day, or what food to cook for the next week. Everyday is a summer. How boring good is that. Yeah ya yup! So, everyday is a bermuda day, everyday is a singlet cotton t-shirt day, and everyday is the cold cold salad day. No, I am kidding with the salad part. I live in an area we like our food cooked. Ok, let’s not drill into that as I can take forever to talk about the different about the place I live. I am absolutely fine with where I am.¬†What I wanna say is…Christmas is not white in this part of the planet. It can be any color, any shade, any theme, any form. It can be summer. Yeah, summer and Christmas? Nope, I am not in Australia. I am in a place where everyday is summer. Malaysia!

So, I am into the sailor thing recently and found a quote which suite the sailor theme. So, I have a Christmas tree setup with a sailor looking teddy bear (yeah, just because of the blue¬†stripe) sitting by the side, also frame up my favorite quote “Anchor of my life” with a painted white raw wood frame. What do you think? Don’t they looks cute together?

What is coming next…Christmas gift under the tree. Have you finish with your Christmas shopping and wrap up all your gift? I done my shopping but still¬†procrastinating¬†with the wrapping. It is just not an easy task to have a young baby around during the gift wrapping. She will just put every single piece of paper into her mouth. So, it will just have to wait till I find time on my own in the middle of the night. My dilemma? I love to sleep. >.<
