Inspiring biblical passage of the moment: There are so many life-giving passages to chose from– it is hard to just think of one. However, Proverbs 4:10-14 completely bowled me over the other day and left me feeling revived.
Hear, my son, and accept my words,
that the years of your life may be many.
I have taught you the way of wisdom;
I have led you in the paths of uprightness.
When you walk, your step will not be hampered,
and if you run, you will not stumble.
Keep hold of instruction; do not let go;
guard her, for she is your life.
Do not enter the path of the wicked,
and do not walk in the way of the evil.

When did you first encounter God and how did you encounter Him? My first real encounter of God was when I was 10 years old. I was on a school camp, which I was not enjoying at all. I felt very homesick and alone. One night, I cried out to God as I was drowning in sadness. At that very moment, I was overcome with the most extraordinary peace. I felt like I was being hugged by God, and I probably was. I will never forget that moment as long as I live.

Just read/currently reading (and what has it taught you?): At the moment, I am not reading anything other than the Bible, itself. I find fresh revelation every day. It is amazing how you can read one verse several times, and each time, it can speak to you in a different way.
Top three essentials: I hope that living creatures count because my little fur baby is vitally important to me, after the Bible, of course. I also cannot go a day without moisturizer, got to keep the face and spirit hydrated at all times.
How did God speak to you recently? A girl that I went to school with had a prophetic dream about me the other day. She spoke such wisdom into my life that I was left feeling so humbled by the greatness of God. I have not seen this girl in over 8 years in fact we do not even live in the same country anymore, yet God could still use her to bring His light and love into my life.
