listening to- my lighthouse by rend collective, little light by rachel platten, God is good by dustin kensrue. can i say how much i love rend collective?! so, so good!

enjoying: my book thrifting trips. i found really great books by anne lamott, joshua harris, eric & leslie ludy among others on my last trip. i found 2 copies of i kissed dating goodbye! i'm deciding to gift the second copy. *mentally scrolls through friends.* haaa, i know who! ;)

reading- genesis- really refreshing to get back to the basics of this God-given life. i love being plunged into the stories of flawed people who loved God from the beginning of time, i love the unfolding, the redeeming. i dunno but i giggled each time abraham had to lie that sarah was his sister and not his wife in order for his life to be spared. and the interesting part is, each time, he & sarah were sent off with lots of gifts after the lie was brought to light. funny, little couple that God used greatly!

aaand, i'm almost through with i kissed dating goodbye by joshua harris!! guys, the wealth of Godly wisdom dripping from this book is nothing short of amazing! having being single for over 3 yrs, patiently waiting for God's best, the book goes down my throat really well. it affirms my convictions about serving God & being productive in the waiting season. i'm gonna be blogging some excerpts pretty soon. and the fact that he wrote it when he was only 21?? incredibly wise beyond his years if you ask me!

watching- nothing really, although there are sermon videos, meaningful scripture-based movies, and videos from the anima series that are begging for my attention. haha i'm too caught up soaking in words from books. that's what happens when the bookworm in me fully awakens. ;)

understanding: what it means to seek first the Kingdom of God-[my forever Home] and His righteousness and trusting Him to take care of the details of my life.

rocking- finger coils. i had on twist outs for some time and decided to go for a new look. i did the finger coils myself last weekend, all by the help of some useful kinky hair tutorials i found on youtube. i used organic root stimulator lock & twist gel. it took me close to 5 hrs to finish all the coils. it's been a week and it's still looking pretty neat as compared to the twist outs which began to look a lil messy after a few days. but maybe that's bcos i used only water+hair oil without the gel for the twist out? welp, i think i'll go with the finger coils more often. it's convenient and easy to maintain.

memorizing- philippians 4:6-7 "be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guide your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."

romans 12:2 "do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is- His good, pleasing and perfect will."

2 timothy 3:16 "all scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness."

2 corinthians 10:4-5
"for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ."

thankful for: the hand of the Lord in my life. without Him i'm sooo lost!

praying: bold, BIG, hopeful, strongholds-shattering prayers.

loving: this lovely quote i found on pinterest.

what have you guys been up to lately?!

xoxo, gen delali.
