“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” ~Joshua 1:9 (NIV)3b4b

Sometimes I can be such a worrywart. When things don’t go as expected, when things suddenly change, when I lose control over plans, when I become unsure of things, when I get threatened, when I am afraid– I worry. And lately, God’s been dealing with this particular attitude of mine. 

The other day I was reminded of this line that I read from a book once: “God wants us to realize that fear comes from an immature understanding of our relationship with Him and of His love for us.” I realized that the reason why I’ve been worrying is also because I am afraid. And this is only because sometimes I forget who I am in Christ.

What I’ve been doing is remind myself that my problems are nothing compared to the greatness and goodness of God. And since He has called me His daughter, I have absolutely nothing to be afraid of. It’s just a matter of having the right perspective. 

This week, let’s change how we see things. Instead of praying, “Dear God, I have a big problem.”, try saying, “Hey problem, I have a big God!” Let’s “be strong and courageous… for the LORD our God will be with us wherever we go.”

Kimono

Kimonos and beaches just go so well together. I especially love it when the wind blows on it giving it that extra dramatic effect. It’s the perfect outdoor cover up if you ask me.

Bringin’ Sexy Back

This was what I wore to our Balinese lunch during Day 2 of Nivea Come Close in Balesin. Business in front, party on the back!

I found this top hidden among one of the crowded racks of Zara sometime during their fall collection release. When I saw it I knew that it would be something I’d love to wear on a resort trip. I thought that the high-neck and polished front was just the perfect setup for that sexy surprise at the back. Very dramatic. So obviously, I got it– mainly to spare me from the regret I was afraid I would feel when the perfect resort trip came up and I didn’t have this.

But you see, this could also work for typical non-beach days. Just change the inner top to something more modest like a basic long bandeau, pair it with black pants or denim jeans and it becomes appropriate for going around the city. :)
