Are you happy with who You are?

Your eyes, your ears, your voice, do you know that you where perfectly created and formed, exactly in the way God wanted you to be. He sees the ability’s in you and knows what He can do through you? A lot of times when we look at ourselves we only see the things we cannot do, that's also the way it is in the world today. Sometimes people only look at you for the things that you can and what you have achieved. God looks at you and sees all kind of ability’s and opportunity’s.
He also want us to look at our self like that, and that we stop complaining when He call us to step out in greatness. Many times we think, I’m not good enough, I don't have that agree to do that, our we have failed for some things in the past and now we are afraid to try it again. Don’t you know that those who have success are those who never gave up. God did not give us a spirit of  fear but of  power and of love and of a sound mind. (2 tim 1:7)
We need to stop thinking like victims, stop looking at our problems like they are giants. Instead of that we need to focus and know the greatness of God that lives inside of us. God created us just the way He wanted us to be, He gave us all different kind of talents to use it, to multiply it, to use it in this dark world to make a difference in the world. God loves us and wants good things for us. God loves you and has a hopeful future for you! Not only for me, but also for you!
God is willing and more than able if you just believe. What your mind and heart believes, that is who you are and who you will always be. Stop believing the negativity you have heard all your life or what people have been telling you. But start believing the promises God has for your life!

Celebrating Christmas

Celebrating Christmas?

Are you really celebrating Christmas?
Think for 1 minute, what can you do for someonelse with christmas this year?
Not even for your love ones but for a total stranger. How can you give christmas to someone else? If you look around you, you will find enough to share and give to someone else. Christmas is not about presents, wearing your greatest outfit. It's about celebrating the birth of Christ and the reason why He came into this world. To love, to give, to share with those who are in need, of Love, hope, life and faith. Stop thinking about yourself for 1 minute and give a christmas to someone else this year!

What is success!

What is success?

3 December 2011, I had my first poetry show: Visions, thoughts and dreams. Live in a small theatre in Amsterdam. A vision I had last year, of me creating my own poetry show incl. other creative talents. It has always been 1 of my desires to create my own creative shows. All I had was a vision from God the talent he gave me and my faith. Now was the time, I had to do this, I had to walk in faith and do what i knew God called me to do. Encourage and bless others with the talent God gave me. God did not give us talents to hide it, just like a light that should not be hidden under the table put on its stand.
(matt 5:15)

I had been working for months on the project, everything in me wanted to go and do this. But the process didn't go the way I hoped. There where mountains and obstacles. Now I had to put my faith in practice and trust in God.
Even on the day of the show there where obstacles, but that did not stop me of doing what I had to do. I surrender it all in the hands of God. The audience God wanted to be there and the message of the show. That the seed of love, faith and hope would be planted in the hearts of those who were there. A seed that would not be forgotten. I am thankful that in the midst of the storm I was able to do this. God works in ways we cannot see. In the world today people measure success with their possessions our achievements. (1 samuel 16:7) Success is not found in our achievements our possessions but what is found within our hearts.

Working to realise your dreams!

How easy it is to have dreams, it's another story to have good dreams and it's a whole other story to realize those dreams. We all have them; we all desire to live our dreams. In each and every one of us there is a seed we have been carrying around since we were children. Every morning I wake up and now this is another special day given to me. Another day closer to realize my dreams. I already wasted too many years in believing the wrong thoughts and the wrong ideas. It took me a while to truly understand and realize that all that I needed God already planted in me. I have to work today to change tomorrow. What I do today will influence tomorrow. I’m also learning to face reality when it comes down to realize your dreams you have to be ready to face battles because the road to your destiny isn't always easy. Sometimes it's like the closer you get the harder you have to fight. Fighting circumstances, fighting people, and yes, even yourself. In this life I’m learning how important it is to encourage yourself because sometimes everything and everybody seems to be working against you.  Right at that moment when you need them the most. I learned that if you can't encourage yourself, if you don't believe in the treasures that God placed inside of you the whole world around you can say whatever they want to encourage you, but if you don't believe it, that seed inside of you will never grow up and unfold in what it was supposed to do! So stand up and take responsibility over your life!

Pink Ribbon

Pink Ribbon
For those who loved life and everybody that lost love ones. Words sometimes, are just not enough to express the pain and loneliness that has been left behind. The time and reason was not the way life is supposed to end. For every heart and life that slipped away. Not one of you will be forgotten!

Where it all begins!

Where did it all begin? Can you remember the day that you woke up and realize that you wanted to be a teacher, a doctor, a lawyer, a dancer or an actrice? Being inspired by the people surrounding you or what you have seen on the TV or heard on the radio. Suddenly there was a fire inside of you and you where determent to be what you desired to be. You had it all planned out, there was a strength inside of you that kept you going on. And then 1 day you wake up to find out, that you're on a road that you don't even know how you got there. Dark and rainy days have slowly entered your sunny, shiny road. The things in life have got you cut up, confused and hurt. Living a life and wondering if it's really yours? Cause you never thought that the sun of your childhood would lead you to this point in life! The reality is that in life we go through rain and storms, we have or ups and downs, we gain and we lose but not for nothing! By our trials and tribulations we learn and we grow. We learn that there is strength inside of us, there is a strength God placed in every woman and man. That strength grows stronger with every storm that passes by. And the beauty of it all is that you don't have to stand through the storms alone! God is there right by your side! And all the visions, thoughts and dreams that encouraged you and gave you strength are seeds that He placed inside your heart. And that seed is waiting there for you to water it, so that vision, those thoughts and dreams inside of you can come to live. From the beginning of life we all receive a seed that is pure and true, to work out, so we can make a change in this world. That’s why we all need a vision a thought or a dream in life. If you don’t know what is yours I want you to take some time to find out what your vision, what your thought and what your dream is? And when you find it don't be afraid to work it out, so you can be part of making a difference in the world today!
