So in honour of this momentous occasion here is a awesome quote brought to you by Henry Ford, and if you have any suggestions for things you would like to see for our 100th quote anniversary, lemme know in the comments below!!! 

“One who fears failure limits his activities. Failure is only the opportunity more intelligently to begin again.”

Daily Devos: 2 Peter 1

So I finished 1 Peter, (as you can probably see), and It was super great and lovely. Really encouraging and I found reminding us to just keep on persevering no matter what trails and unfairness we may face. That is what the bible is great for. Especially last night when I first read 2 Peter, I was feeling really beaten down but reading that I felt strengthened again by the awesomeness of the verses in this chapter and God’s presence that was just THERE. So in this Daily Devos I am going to share some of those awesome verses and just speak on them, abit. Okay? Okay. So crack open those bibles and let’s go!

1 Peter

Chapter 1:

3 – we have everything we need to live a godly life by God and knowing him. (God NEVER gives us more than we can handle. He knows us inside and out; everything single last hair on our head and has given us everything we need to get through life every day and defeat the darkness.)

4 – has given us promises that allow us to share His nature and escape the world’s corruption, (Because of his glory and excellence, we have these amazing promises given to us by God that we know above all us and craziness and uncertainty of this world we can trust and believe in. This world may be completely corrupt and seemlingly crumbling around us, but his promises stand strong.

5-8 – listen to god’s promises cause they give us strength when we are uncertain

Supplement, (a component that improves capability), your faith with:

  1. Moral Excellence
  2. Knowledge (the word)
  3. Self-Control 
  4. Patient Endurance 
  5. Godliness
  6. Brotherly Affection (fam love)
  7. Love for everyone

**the ore you execute these things the more the faith will grow and become stronger in you and make your knowledge of Jesus more useful. (Personally, I plan on perfecting all theses things in my daily life to better my faith)

10 – work hard to prove that you are among God’s chosen people by these things. (Can’t just be with Jesus and stay the same. Must show it in the way we speak, act, live and love)

16-21 – these aren’t just fairytales, (stories in the word; the word itself), these are things to.d by fellow followers of Christ who actually witnessed and experienced these things. We should gain confidence from them because they are like a lamp shing in the dark until jesus touches our hearts. (Especially non-believers) all these things are words brought forth not just by ordinary people but by ordinary people like us MOVED by the spirit, speaking from God.

Thanks my friends! Hope I didn’t bore you too much…. But instead encouraged you or touched you a bit just like I was the other day. Did you read this Chapter? What were your thoughts? Questions? Comments? Lemm k ow all those things in the comments below! Thanks again!

Hope you enjoyed this little bit of life.

The Aftermath of Until the Beginning by Amy Plum

Hey Folks! I finished reading another book! Hooray!! I just finished this yesterday so this is hot off the locker; fresh in my mind so I am ready to do this!! Let’s go!

So, this book is the sequel to After the End by Amy Plum. This book is a duology and Unitl the beginning is the second book. From when I first encountered this book, I thought it was interesting and after reading the first book, I was in love. This series if about a girl named Juneau who lives in northern ish Alaska with her clan. Her whole clan believes this thing called the Yara or Gaia. This is, to them, the life force that flows through all of nature, connecting us all together. Through their different abilities they are able to tap into the Yara  and doall types of cool things. Juneau is under the impression that her clan is the last bunch of people on earth after like, world war 3. But one day her whole clan disappears and she is forced to leave her home and venture out into the world where she realises the world didn’t actually end, and the rest of civilisation still exists. Trust me guys there is so much more… Like a love interest named Miles… That you should definitely read about in these books. I highly recommend them. The second book is great. It delves into some more answers for Juneau and développements in her relationship with Miles… So Just read it. 

  
WE ARE ENTERING THE SPOILERY SECTION. BEWARE IF YOU HAVE NOT READ. ***************

So to start off, lemme just say, I LOVE Miles and Juneau. I would ship that all the way to Alaska. I am so glad that they ended up together and that even though Juneau doubted their relationship… which was kinda annoying…. Miles came after her and helped her save her people from Avery the crazy man. 

And Miles really grew alot throughout this novel as a character and I really enjoyed reading about his developpement. At the start iof the novel, he was still that same ol’ city boy, then right away when he got shot by that guard guy with Whit and Juneau gave him the Rite. He began to transform. He really grew up and matured. He could relate to Juneau alot more and became like REALLY wise. Being connested to the Yara changed him for the better I think. As he came to accept the fact that he would live forever and that he had all these abilities he became  a whole new character that I really enjoyed.

One person I didn’t like was Whit. He sold the whole clan out even Juneau, just so he could get put on a pedestal for his discovery of Amrit. What a snake. And like I KNEW, that juneau would be the key to the drug working. LIke when Tallie sent her that story with the dragon and how his blood was powerful or something like that I was like: ITS HER. SHE IS IT. 

Overall, I thought this book was really well written and executed by Amy Plum. She had a really great way of plotting the enture story line and connesting everything together and evolving all the characters that was awesome to read. And of course, the concept was awesome and super interesting as well. So, everything together mad it great. My overall rating would be 89% or 4 stars.

Thanks for reading! Have you read this book before? What were your thoughts? Lemme know in the comments below the answers to those questions and whetehr or not you would like to read this book now that you have seen me talk about it. As well, feel free to leave any additional comments or questions you may have about this in the comments below! Thanks again!

Hope you enjoyed this little bit of life.
