My adoration rests in my SAVIOR. I'm a former missionary and current coffee snob, living on the outskirts of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This blog is my blog for ministry, and little parts of my life you may find fun, inspiring, or crazy. - Kristin, 21.
When I dedicated my heart to God, I figured He would give what I need to get by successfully, bless me with my necessities.

Nope.

He examined my heart and mind, noted my most honest desires and fears and hopes, filled a resevoir-sized tank full of grace and favor, and plunged me into it, and drowned me in His goodness!

GAHH! Sorry if I sound crazy right now, guys! It’s just so amazing to feel my Dad’s love.

I’m all giddy tonight.

Had an absolutely amazing day with my East Coast friends.

And got to make some equally amazing new West Coast friends!
So blessed :) can’t wait to see how God transforms and nurtures these relationships in my life!

last fall, the Lord blessed me with the privilege of loving and mentoring a truly amazing group of high school freshman and sophomore girls.

how gracious i am for the opportunity to travel near them on their walk with God, and be their sister and friend!!

can’t get over how fully i am blessed! :D

can’t wait to see my girls tonight! <3

sometimes it is SO easy to recognize God’s blessings. y’know, the ones that throw themselves at you and leave you without a doubt that a move of God occurred.

others aren’t so easily noticed.

these last few days i’ve felt showered by amazing blessings, and all i ask is that i am humbled by these amazing works of God.

because i know for every easy-recognizable blessing a receive, there’s 100 DAILY that i don’t even notice half of the time.

give me your eyes Father God, to see your love and blessings all around me. help me to see glimpses of you in the good and not so good, feeling entitled to nothing but completely thankful for everything.

Had SUCH an amazing birthday :D

My evening was spectacular!
Me and a group of 12 amazing friends. P.F. Chang’s. Absolute nonsensical, ridiculous fun.
Once again, I am in awe: just completely blown away that my Father loves me SO MUCH that He gave me these brilliant friends. These people who have changed my life, and I’d do anything for.
So so blessed!
:))))

that fantastic moment when God blesses you SO IMMENSELY that all you can do is fall to your knees and give him praise, and smile in amazement until your cheeks are sore.

:)))

i wanted to take a moment to acknowledge a person who plays a huge part in my life: my little sister, brianna.

she’s my 15-year-old sis, and i love her.

she’s direct when others beat around the bush. she’s real with me when others tell me what i want to hear.

she encourages me, and inspires me.

i feel so blessed to have such a beautiful, intelligent girl in my life, and it brings such joy to me to see her growing in Christ and becoming an incredible woman of God.

i love you with all my heart, bree bree! <333

"You’re Blessed 05:1-1-12"

You’re blessed when you’re at the

end of your rope

with less of you

there is more of God and His rule.

You’re blessed when you feel you’ve lost

what is most dear to you.

You’re blessed when you’re content

with just who you are- no more, no less.

That’s the moment you find yourselves

proud owners of everything that can’t

be bought.

You’re blessed when you get your inside

world- your mind and heart- put right.

Then you can see God in the outside world.

You’re blessed when you can

show people how to cooperate instead

of compete or fight.

That’s when you discover who you really

are, and your place in God’s family.

You’re blessed when your commitment

to God provokes persecution. 

The presecution drives you even deeper into

God’s kingdom. Not only that- count

yourselves blessed every time people put

you down or throw you out, or speak

lies about you to discredit Me. What it

means is that the truth is too close

for comfort and they are uncomfortable.

You can be glad when that happens-

give a cheer even!- for though they don’t

like it, I do! And all Heaven applauds. And

know that you are in good company. My

prophets and witnesses have always gotten

into this kind of trouble.”

one of my dearest friends gave me this, written on a peace of notebook paper today, after me having confided in her about some heavy things on my heart days earlier. easily one of the many reasons tonight was amazing.

God is so fantastic, so present in these days, even when i falter. He never gives up on me.

He brings me to my feet.

All i must do is first fall to my knees.

Give me Faith by Elevation Worship.

Here it is my friends. So many of you requested this song. It’s about time I make a cover of this. It’s perfect because, I’ve been on a rollercoaster - spiritual warfare this past few days, so.. this song is just a great reminder to have faith in God. No matter what our circumstances looks like. Be blessed!

In Christ,

Mark Muldez
