๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ญ Jewel Mische๐Ÿ’Kurzer ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ  The secret is #Christ in me ฯฏ | Welcome to my life and thoughts squeezed in squares! โ™ก

Like most non-Americans, I thought that #America was a predominantly city-nation. I knew about #NewYork & #LA, #LasVegas & #Chicago. I did not know much about the rest of the #USA. โ€“ To give you an illustration, when you think of #Russia, the first thing you would think of is the Russian city. Youโ€™d think that Russia is one #Moscow or a big St. Petersburg. You would not think of Siberia. And so was my biggest shock when I came to #Michigan. Just about an hour drive away from #Detroit and that was the pleasant surprise. I was in the #woods. The chirps of the birds silenced the living beat of the #city. โ€“ People often ask me, "What's in Michigan?" It used to offend me, kinda. But now I just laugh at the iฬธgฬธnฬธoฬธrฬธaฬธnฬธtฬธ question. ๐Ÿ˜ฌโœŒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜ŠYou know, I might be away from my #beautiful homeland, the #Philippines! But I am #inlove with my 2nd home!! It's a mixture of everything! Engineering marvels made by both man & #nature abound here. I like the people, the History, the Wildlife... The #UpperPeninsula is so secluded & uniquely #beautiful that it almost feels like a secret 51st state!! And have I mentioned the 4 seasons??๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž I mean I love the Philippines.. but I'm totally smitten by the #mitten! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ#HappyBirthdayAmerica #ILY #4thofJuly #Grateful โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Isn't it crazy how we worry and fear our purpose, when we will have #children, when we will walk in what God wants us to do, when will we #marry? When this, when that? And, #God is saying "I've laid out your days" (#Psalm 139:16). "Will you trust me?". "When you choose ME, you choose the #life I have laid down for you". .. With a head so full of ideas and a heart full of desires, sometimes I wonder "when is this or that?". I don't always know. But God does. His plans and His timing are always #better than mine too! And so, I just keep going. I keep pressing into #Jesus DAILY and I'm pretty #fearless. I live for Him and I continue to put one foot in front of the other as HE LEADS. It's so, so worth it!! ๐Ÿ˜Š#NoWorries #TheJewelLifestyle โœจโค๏ธโœจ

I grew up on a farm, in a poor town with a broken family. What's amazing to me is that #God sits high and looks low and He saw me in that unfortunate situation. What's #amazing to me is that He still had a #purpose for me when I felt like I didn't have a purpose growing up. What's amazing to me is that He fought for me when I kept falling for sin and I had given up on my own self. What's amazing to me is that God qualifies you when this #world doesn't think you're enough. If you're ever feeling forgotten or purposeless, know that God doesn't ask you about your past or where you're from. He doesn't ask about your degrees or your experience. He doesn't even ask of how 'holy' you are. He simply wants your #heart, He wants you to #receiveHim and He uses whoever is willing. I honestly don't know how God did it for me, 28 years later I am falling more and more in love with Him. I feel like the happiest and most #blessed girl on the planet and I don't ever want to be found else where... there's nowhere else I'd rather be but in His will..!!๐Ÿ“โ€“ As the Lord searches the #earth from His view, I hope you make sure He is finding you โ€“ with a surrendered and willing heart. Love you!๐Ÿ˜Šโœจ๐Ÿ’œโœจ

Last year for my Birthday I went to France. But I don't go there for #Lavender.. I have my own corner of purple haze right here in my garden.๐Ÿ˜Š#myLavender โœจ๐Ÿ’œโœจ

Why do a lot of times than not Birthdays brings unexplainable feelings?? Often times people has the tendency to feel the excitement as his special day is getting closer, although some deliberately would want to forget their natal days coz of adding number of their age.. haha!๐Ÿ˜‚ But excitement I guess is always there somewhere. The thing is, as the big day comes you feel like the level of your expected happiness doesn't really hit the marginal line? How absurd eh?๐Ÿ˜… Nevertheless it's the same old joyous day!! I am not missing THE significant point.. how was I handled in the Potter's hand. He is my Creator.. I was in His care even before I was born!! Isaiah 44:2.๐Ÿ˜And the tangent truth that having a Birthday itself is a gift!!!๐ŸŽ Sooo content and grateful!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜ŠThank you for all MY Birthday wishes!!!โค๏ธ๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜˜ #29th

Isn't it so clever how God has made the color of the #Earth contrast with the sky? ๐ŸŽจHow strange it would be if both the Earth and sky were Green, or both the Earth and sky were Blue?? This color scheme is no accident!! ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’œWhen #God designed Chlorophyll for plants, He deliberately made it a Green color so as to produce the right color scheme for creation. And when God designed air molecules, He deliberately made them scatter light so that the sky would be Blue! Another #beautiful feature of the color scheme in creation is that Blue is the most uncommon color for #wildflowers, #trees, and #fruit. ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿ‡๐ŸThis gives the most beautiful effect because when Blue dominates in the sky, it is best if it is the least common color on the ground!! I'm in AWE. ๐Ÿ˜This #beauty is real, not an accident, and it points to a #Designer..!!! โ€“ How about the Songbirds?? ๐ŸŽถThey do not sing random notes but carefully constructed songs that have musical structure, such as a time signature, key signature, and melody!!๐ŸŽตOH the beauty of creation โ€”clearly reveals a #Creator to those WHO HAVE EYES TO SEE AND EARS TO HEAR. And the beauty of this creation shows that the Creator CARES deeply for man!! This is why #JESUS encouraged His listeners to look at how God has clothed #flowers so that they themselves would not worry about their own clothing!(Mathew 6:25-33) ๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ€๐ŸŒค๐ŸŒบ Sooooooo, I do not worry... I REALLY DON'T.๐Ÿ˜ŠWhen I think of the detailed care that my Heavenly Father has put into creating beauty and then remember that men and women are the pinnacle of His creation, it confirms how much He must care for every detail of my needs.... HE LOVES ME...!!! #sokilig ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ž#noworries #Helovesme #Helovesyou ๐ŸŒˆโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ’œ

It hurt when u left. When u left the 1st time, the 2nd time, & the 3rd. โ€“ It hurt when I learned u wanted to abort me when I was just a baby. โ€“ It hurt when I was only 4 & u left for another country. โ€“ It hurt when u gave up your parental rights so easily when u found out mom fell in love w/ another man. โ€“ It hurt when I tried to reconnect w/ u but my letters were left unanswered. โ€“ It hurt when one day u finally called ..only to say no promises can be made. โ€“ It hurt & it felt like the end of the world...u abandoned me when u were "my only hope". โ€“ It hurts that as I write this, unexpected tears come to my eyes.ย But "we cannot undo hurt feelings any more than we can unbreak an overturned vase." Instead what I can do is tell u how the LORD has used it. He showed me that Jesus can overcome these wounds. He showed me how it feels to be chosen โ€”TO BE PICKED TO BE LOVED! He told me He is the Father to the fatherless & He has done a really GREAT JOB!!!! He showed me how He adopted me into His Kingdom, & I got to grasp more deeply the Fatherly Heart of God. He showed me that despite any earthly hurt I could cry out "Abba Father" & He would be there. He would NEVER leave me.ย โ€” I guess u can see why that means so much to me, why now I cling to my faith so deeply. It could have gone the other way..BUT GRACE.ย I see now that all things work for those who are in Him โ€”HE MAKES ALL THINGS GOOD. Did He want u to leave? No. I donโ€™t think that was His design. But when u did He worked w/ it & He set into motion the many things in my life that would bring me back to Him.ย So the end of my story is a HAPPY ONE. I donโ€™t know if youโ€™ve ever wondered if Iโ€™m okay.. & if u havenโ€™t, thatโ€™s fine. My joy rests in no man. But if u do then I can tell u this: Although your leaving had hurt me then, wounded me later, & impacted me in so many ways, it did not destroy me. I'm fine. I'm stronger, wiser, & I'm quick to CHOOSE JOY! I married a wonderful husband & to my future kids, an awesome daddy. I donโ€™t take him for granted one bit.ย โ€”The thing is, I LOVE YOU. Maybe someday we will meet again. Until that day..I will have the PERFECT LOVE of my Heavenly Father to make me whole, make me DAUGHTER. ๐Ÿ’Œ

Eve was approached by satan in the Garden of Eden, where she and Adam lived. He questioned her contentment. How could she be really happy and content when she was not allowed to eat from one of the fruit trees? Satan helped Eve shift her focus from all that God had done and given to the one thing He had withheld. And Eve willingly accepted satan's viewpoint without checking with God. โ€“ Sounds familiar? How often is our attention drawn from the much which is ours to the little that isn't? We get that "I've got to have it" .. "I've got to experience it" or "I am free to do whatever I want" feeling. Eve was typical of us all, and we consistently show we are her descendants by repeating her mistakes. Our desires, like Eve's, can be quite easily manipulated. They are not the best basis for actions. We need to keep God in our decision-making process ALWAYS. Realize that He may have given many "rules" to His people โ€” but NOT without reason. He will NEVER withhold what is good, He only prohibits acts that would bring us to ruin. ๐Ÿ’Œ #JewelLearnings | ยฉ #LASB #OnEve. (Her story is told in #Genesis 2:19 to 4:26) ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒบ

God made. Jesus saved. Pinoy raised. ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผโค๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ญ Happy Independence Day #Philippines! Missing the island life!!๐Ÿ’ฆ๐ŸŒด๐Ÿฌ

As we endure our short existence on this earth, the joy set before us is #JESUS ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š... an external existence in relationship with Him, for those that BELIEVE.๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž But the cherry on top? ๐Ÿ’ We don't have to wait until this #life is over to begin such a #relationship. It starts TODAY... the day you realize HIS GREAT #LOVE FOR YOU. โœ๏ธ โ€“ TอŸhอŸeอŸ pอŸrอŸeอŸsอŸeอŸnอŸcอŸeอŸ oอŸfอŸ GอŸoอŸdอŸ iอŸsอŸ nอŸoอŸtอŸ jอŸuอŸsอŸtอŸ aอŸ tอŸhอŸeอŸoอŸrอŸyอŸ, iอŸtอŸ'sอŸ aอŸ FอŸAอŸCอŸTอŸ. And prayer is not a pre-written script that must be said in a certain way. It is RAW, HONEST communication between you & #God.. just like you and a friend or you and a spouse. OPEN YOUR #HEART AND SPEAK TO HIM TODAY. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ Tell Him how you're doing, apologize for the times you mess up, ask Him for help to walk rightly, and ask Him to guide you in this short journey. ๐Ÿ‘ฃ (Simply start out your day spending 10 minutes with Him and ending your day 10 minutes with Him. You have 1,440 minutes in a day, what's 20 minutes with Your Maker... Who created the time that you have? โฑ... it's merely a sliver.โณ) He's eager to start a #relationship with YOU.. or at least rekindle and heal an old relationship that once was.๐Ÿ’ž#relationshipgoals ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’œ
