Hello, and welcome back to my blog. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and reflecting lately when it comes to many aspects of my life including this blog. I don’t want to go into a lot of details, but I am thinking of revamping La Petit Muse as early as 2019 be it God’s willing. I’ll be adding new categories and neglecting some of the old ones. I won’t say which ones at the moment. 

No, but I can divulge a few details at the moment.

Oh, alright! At the beginning of the year, I contemplated on bringing back Song Sunday (this month is a year since I haven’t updated it), but some of these songs these so-call Christian artists out here are singing do not entirely praise and focus on God. But I’ve made the decision to bring it back. I’ll be sharing songs that I love, discussing the intentions/meanings behind some songs and I used to write songs so I’ll be sharing some of mine as well. Also, the Origins series that I wanted to start at the beginning of this year is a go.

And that’s all I’ll be sharing for now. Now, to a small life update.

Currently, I’m…

Watching… Criminal Minds! The 14th season kicked off with a bang although it feels like the finality of the show.

Reading… The Women’s Murder Club series by James Patterson. I’m on the 12th book. I have no intention to write full reviews for the books, but I may talk about them at some point. I’m currently not in a book reviewing book mood anyway.

Devotion 💙

Whom dost thou trust?

I trust…

the Father to provide for me for He knew my name before it was spoken into existence. I trust Him to guide me, teach and rebuke me. I trust Him with my life.

the Son Jesus Christ to intercede on my behalf as He presents my prayers before His Father’s throne, to justify me, and to blot out my sins making me white as snow.

the Holy Spirit to drive sin away from my front door, to help me draw closer to God, to provide me with wisdom, to strengthen my faith and to be the light in the dark path. I trust Him to dwell in me and to sanctify me.

Psalm 9:10 – Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you

Psalm 31:14 –  But I trust in you, LORD; I say, “You are my God.” 

John 14:1 – “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me

Romans 15:13 – May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

In Christ alone
I place my trust
And find my glory in the power of the cross
In every victory
Let it be said of me
My source of strength
My source of hope
Is Christ alone

200 Question Challenge: 7-24

7. What job would you be terrible at?

Jobs that require public speaking. I’m more of a background person. I’ll toss salesperson in there for I don’t think I can approach random people and ask them to buy stuff.

8. When was the last time you climbed a tree?

I was about 14…

9. What is the most annoying habit that other people have?

To be honest, I dislike it when people complain about every single thing in their life when there are others suffering worse than them.

10. What job do you think you’d be really good at?

Paralegal. I love doing research and preparing documents. The best thing? I’ll be around the law.

11. What skill would you like to master?

Fluent French and archery. 

12. What songs have you completely memorized?

Too many to count, but I’ll say a few of Michael W. Smith’s songs, Michael Jackson’s ‘Man in the Mirror’, Depeche Mode’s ‘Peace’ and Brian Littrell’s ‘The Answer Is You’. 

13. Are you usually early or late?

I am the most punctual person you’ll ever meet.

14. What takes up too much of your time?

At the moment, it’s nothing, really. I have some downtime at work and I use it wisely… or at least try to. 

15. What do you wish you knew more about?

I don’t believe in wishes, but I wish I knew more about world history and how to speak tons of foreign languages so I can tell more people about God and how much He loves and cares for them.

16. What’s the nicest thing someone has ever said to you?

Someone recently told me that they like how I’m following in Christ’s footsteps. 💙

17. Where did your name come from?

*Shrugs* My parents liked the name Diana and hence they named me Diana. Thank God I was not named for the likes of Diana Ross or Princess Diana.

20. What do you want your last words to be?

I lived, I loved, I laughed, now, I sleep.

21. What is something that offends you?

When people can’t keep what you told them in confidential to themselves. They just have to go and spread the love to others.

22. What is something you are certain you’ll never experience?

Hmm… I tend to never say never and I tend not to dwell on things… but, maybe attending a concert or parties for I dislike crowds.

23. Do you ask enough questions or do you settle for what you know?

If I don’t understand something, I ask enough questions even if I asked it twice already.

24. Write a letter to your 5-year-old self.

Life is going to have its ups and downs; bumps, twists, and turns. You’re going to go through some tough trials and a period of self-doubt, but once you lean on and trust God, everything is going to be all right.

Day 30: A song that reminds you of yourself

The very last day of this challenge! Before I go into the song, I want to thank you for joining me this month and for contributing your selections as well. It’s been a blast!

I have to go with Brian Littrell’s ‘In Christ Alone’. Some of you may know Brian from Backstreet Boys. He has the voice of an angel… if I ever heard one sang and if he were a fulltime gospel singer, he would’ve been my absolute favorite. He is the owner of one of the most beautiful voices known to man, but when he uses it to bless the Lord it’s even sweeter.

Unfortunately, he’s been struggling with vocal issues, but his voice is almost back… I think. 

Anyway, I chose this song because in Christ alone I place my hopes. In Him alone, I seek refuge, strength and protection. Brian couldn’t have expressed it any better. Christ is the reason why I exist, why I breathe and why I love. 💙
