We tend to let ourselves drown in problems and worries in life that is too small if we are to take a look at the bigger picture. The problem lies in us, because we keep on focusing on our situation instead of taking action and getting out of there.
Besides, God has told us many times in the bible not to worry :) Sometimes, our worrying proves our lack of faith that our God can do miracles. Stand up and have faith, God can work wonders in our lives if we allow Him to move in us <3<3

Where it all began... by Yuumira
Where it all began...
This is part of the overall production design I created for my undergraduate thesis "Production Design for Animation of the book A Series of Unfortunate Events" which is also included in the visual style guide that I created.

Another scene from my animated trailer where the Baudelaires are shown standing by the shore of the briny beach. This is the first image you'll imagine when you read the book and the place where they received the bad news. The image was resized since this was also the back cover of the visual style guide XD

It's not really about me. It's all about the Artist in me.

Art is the language of emotions.
Emotions come from within, and an artist can be easily described by what he or she draws the most. Their art is what best describe them.

There's no need for words, you only need to look with your eyes. Words aren't as powerful as actions, yet an action without a word is always ignored. So here I'll declare what God has done in my life.

I'm not the painter. I'm the brush the Artist holds.
I'm not the writer. I'm the pen the Artist grips.

I'm not the artist. I'm the tool the Artist use.


To those of you who don't know, I am a tool of this great and awesome Artist who had created it all. He is an Artist capable of creating a masterpiece from a scratch. His canvass is your life. His stories are yours. His songs are your feelings. His pictures are of you smiling. He is the God that I serve, the Artist that I adore. He is my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. :heart:

See the colors He painted in my life. Listen to the story He wrote for me. Hear the songs He sings for me. Look at the pictures He sees of me. That is the Artist I am talking about, the Artist who makes something beautiful out of a trash like me.




2 Corinthians 4:18 "Fix your eyes not on what is seen but on what is unseen, for what is seen is temporary, and what is unseen is eternal."

Hi guys! it's been a while since I last write a journal. Anyway, here's something I just wanted to share with you guys. It's something from my devotion from a time ago which I happen to read again and it really did had it's impact on me once again. I hope it could also help you guys!

I’m sure everyone of us here had already heard of the parable of the sower (Matthew 13:1-17). A farmer went out to sow his seeds and as he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path. Others fell on rocky places while some fell among thorns. Some however, landed on good soil.

Most of the times, when we hear preachers preach this verse, they always, ALWAYS, emphasize the different types of soil where the different seeds fell. However, I want to look at it on a different perspective. This time, I don’t want to focus on the soil, but rather on the most important subject in this parable: the seed, which is often times neglected when this parable is being talked about.

To bloom where we are planted, we need to realize three things:

1. There is only one type of seed.
v3 “…A farmer went out to sow his seed.”
Notice the word “seed”. It didn’t said “seeds” but it just said “seed”. All over the passage, we wouldn’t see it said “seeds” but just “seed”. This word, being a singular noun, implies that the farmer only sowed one type of seed. Though it may be true that there are different types of soil, there is only one type of seed that fell in those different types of soil. If God is the sower, we are the seeds that He is sending out to the world. There may be many seeds but it’s all just one type of seed.

Just as the parable said, each seed fell into different types of soil. Some along the path, others in the rocks, the thorns and the good soil. When Jesus sent us out into the world, there’s this specific workplace for each of us. We all have our own mission field! And because there’s only one seed that fell among those places, we need to learn how to bloom, or else no one will bloom.

We cannot choose our situations… and we cannot control them! If God is calling you to do ministry in a certain place, do so! There’s no seed other than you who fell in that place. It may be rocky or thorny, but it must not stop you from growing unlike those seeds mentioned in the parable.
 

2. We need to grow, in order to bloom where we’re planted.
Each seed tried to grow on their own respective places.
v5&7 “…it SPRANG up quickly….. which GREW up and choked the plants.”
The words “sprang” and “grew” indicate growth of the plants which fell on the rocks and thorns. Even though their places aren’t good for plants, each seed still tried their best to grow.
Maybe it’s our school or work… or maybe it’s just our plain homes! Each are still considered our “soil”. If God had planted you in that soil, we need to grow! We need to bloom where we are planted! 

There’s no such thing as a “transplant” in God’s kingdom.
You cannot say “Lord, I can’t win the souls of these people… can I just do my ministry in another place/person?” You are where you’re supposed to be! "Where God plants you, is where He will bless you and provide for you.” 

We can’t possibly keep on looking for the “good” soil where it’s easy to do God’s ministry. In fact, we are in good soil if God is with us! Why? Because it’s easy to do work when God is working with us. 


3. We need to bloom, so that others may also bloom.
v11 “Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them.”
We are blessed to know the good news! If we do not let our roots grow deep in the good soil, we will not be able to tell of this good news to others. 

Many people are wanting to see, but they do not see. Many people hear but do not understand. That’s why, it is up to us to help them figure things out by simply “blooming where we are planted.”

I just wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday!

I notice you’re from the Philippines. I hope you didn’t lose anyone during the hurricane!

 

I've found that a lot of people here in the U.S. don't know much about their own country, much less anyone else's.  :(

 

I post prayer updates about different countries. Part of the reason is to raise awareness about what's going on in the rest of the world.

 

Recently I’ve started a personal initiative; if I notice someone on DA is from another country, if I've done their country I let them know. It’s my way of letting them know that others are thinking about their home. :)

 

These two are about your home! Consider it a birthday gift!
