The Future

Yesterday I talked with one of my good old friends and brother in Christ who goes to Hillsong College in Australia. We hadn't talked for a while but it was soo soo great. He's so passionate about life and God it's contagious.
So we were talking about life and dreams and what God has been doing and where we see Him doing things. What a conversation. I felt so encouraged in some of the dreams that were put on my heart about a year ago. I felt encouraged! I mean I have this dream for my life... this vision and he just encouraged me in it... and if this is from God... wow.. wow ... wow... this would be the most amazing thing. I could be creative and just do all those things that I love.
God, I ask you to show me your dreams. I do not want to go and do my own will. I do not want to live my dreams, but yours. Lord, please show me what to do after graduating from university. Show me where you want me to go and who you want me to be. You know that I would do anything for you and that I would go anywhere for you. To the ends of the earth! Lord, I'm ready... go, send me... I want to be you hands and your feet. I want to be the difference in this world. I'm ready and I will go! Not through my own ability, but through the power of Christ in me. Amen.

A New Start

Finally I'm starting to post here again. Took me a while to feel ready for it. I wanted to hold on to my adventures but I cannot live in the past, my life happens here and now and I don't want to miss anything. This does by no means mean that I don't ponder about my memories and adventures in California. Believe me, I still do and I love thinking about all the great things that have happend, but rather than holding on to these things I'm trying now to use what I've learned, apply it and enjoy.

So here I am back posting, with a new title for my site, new colors and well... a new start.

Tonight at youth we had our last time before summer break and wow... the end of the series How to... tonight... How to love life. Life is to be enjoyed as a Christian. We are supposed and meant to love life. There are three tips or conditions to help you love life:
1. Seek God's WISDOM. It's an action, so go, seek it, learn and ask it. It won't just fall from heaven. Go, get it!
2. Be OBEDIENT to what the Lord says. Wow... obedience is such a big word but I tell you, it's worth it!
3. Be GRATEFUL for everything you've got. Don't complain, start saying thank you and enjoy. Gratefullness is like sugar to a cake, if cake is life, gratefulness makes it sweet!

So with these thougths I'm letting you go again. Hope you return and read about my ponderings.

Love. Ramona

At my Adventure's end

When things come to an end you most of the times don't feel ready.... like me... I certainly do not feel ready to leave this place. This place, Santa Barbara which I called my home for the last three months.
Who would've have thought that I would get so deeply connected and find so many fantastic and great friends. It was something that I hoped for but not what I was sure of would happen.

My time here has been one of the greatest experiences ever and there are no words to be able to describe that. It was an adventure all through and I learnt a lot about me and how I am. I learnt the difference between council and opinion, listening, being on my own, meeting people and differences in Christianity.

Every single person I met here has been a great blessing for me and has walked a little bit on my path of life with me.

I don't think I have many words left but I'm sure I'll be reflecting on it a lot more in the time ahead.

All I gotta say is: THANK YOU!

Good-bye to everyone. I love you!
