I tried to capture this breathtaking sight with my camera somewhere in the German black forest- my favorite place in the whole wide world where mountains and forests meet!!¬†Now how can a “mountains” girl not have a picture of the mountains on her first blog? ūüėȬ†

This picture reminds me of how I feel in God’s presence: rested, refreshed, rejuvenated¬†and ready to take on my day…This picture speaks volumes about my need to daily find a rested place, an island by itself, where I can shut myself from the chaos and confusion of the world around me, the endless list of chores and to-do lists, goals and so on and fix my gaze on Jesus.¬†

Using this blog as my digital platform, I am SO excited to share with you deep things from the Bible that I have gleaned with help from the Holy Spirit by abiding in the secret place with Him (=my quiet time!) I also want to use this platform to share encouragement from the Bible and thereby encourage those going through different trials to keep your eyes on the Lord.

It is my utmost desire through my blog to encourage, inspire and motivate my brothers and sisters in Christ to drink deeply from His Word.¬†Jesus says in John 4:14,¬†But whoever drinks from the water that I will give him will never get thirsty again‚ÄĒever!¬†In fact, the water I will give him will become a well¬†of water springing up within him for eternal life.”¬†The Lord¬†gives freely to all who hunger and thirst after Him in righteousness.
