“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4:6-7

“The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.”

Psalm 29:11

This morning when I did my devotions I really felt the Lord encouraged my heart deeply when I read my devotional book called Jesus Calling (it is written by Sarah Young). Here’s a quote from the today’s reading that really spoke to me – “It is through awareness of My Presence that Peace displaces negative feelings.” Wow, that is exactly what I needed to read this morning! Thank-you Lord for this encouragement that you gave me today!

I had such an amazing day today with my church family at our church picnic and what beautiful weather we had too! It was very encouraging to be able to speak in Romanian without a translator to people and I really want to praise God for the encouraging conversation that I had with one of my friends about going to God in faith and thanking God for the answer even before I hear what the result will be. Then afterwards I went to my Romanian class. I praise God for filling my heart with encouragement today!

This evening I finally got to watch the season finale result show of “Canada’s Got Talent”! Wow, congratulations to the first season show’s winner – Sagkeeng’s Finest!! The runner ups were Fresh and Angry Candy. What a great first season it was and wow does Canada ever have an incredible amount of talent!!
