Look to the right and see:
there is none who takes notice of me;
no refuge remains to me;
no one cares for my soul.
I cry to you, O Lord;
I say, “You are my refuge,
my portion in the land of the living.”
(Psalms 142: 4-5)
“We therefore draw near to you believing that you exist and that you powerfully and bountifully reward those who diligently seek you.”- Matthew Henry’s method for prayer
“Who is like you, O Lord, among the gods?Who is like you, majestic in holiness,awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders? (Exodus 15:11)
I’m not really fond of politics in general, and by posting this I am not necessarily endorsing everything Margaret Thatcher said- but this quote – “There’s no such thing as entitlement, unless someone has first met an obligation”– left me thinking how often I want the entitlement, especially in academics, without paying the price. I want to be good at something but often, I realize I’m not willing to sacrifice what I have in order to achieve that goal…There’s a lesson here, don’t you think ?
Oh; and, I must say that not only she left us nice quotes but she also had an incredible sense of style. I’m not even joking- I love the way she dressed.

Those days you write two (shorts) posts.
I could not wait to share with you girls two of my favorite women-oriented ressources. I’ve been following Revive our Hearts for a while now and I love what they post on it- but yesterday, I re-discovered Lies Young Women Believe, a blog based on an eponymous book written by Nancy Leigh de Moss, a wonderful woman who also writes for Revive Our Hearts. I think all women will be encouraged by their sound, relevant posts- and I can’t recommend LYWB strongly enough to all the single gals out there. I read a few posts yesterday before going to bed and -having no assembly currently- I was so thankful for being able to have godly women encouraging me through what they write.
“If you’ve ever believed “I have to perform to be loved and accepted,” or “Beautiful girls are worth more,” than you’ve been straight-up lied to. We want to help you smash those lies with Truth from God’s Word so you can be free!”– Lies Young Women Believe
Have a blessed day dear readers 🙂

“A man is made by that which he feeds upon, and for the best manhood you need the best food. As certain silk-worms have their silk coloured by the leaves on which they feed, so if we were to feed on Christ, and nothing else but Christ, we should become pure, holy, lowly, meek, gentle, humble; in a word, we should be perfect even as He is.” C.H. Spurgeon
