We are two aspiring females at the age of 24, Just started our own Fashion Magazine. Growing at the moment, but the magazine will be successful at the appointed time. We are honest and down-to-earth people that love to have fun. We try to live an adventurous and exciting life glorying to the Lord. We LOVE LOVE&LOVE clothes, make up, hair, accessories and shoes. Do we need to say more? So why not get on board and follow our journey and see where the destination takes us.
00:23 , 4th November, 2013 i have come to a realization. I carry too much burden which does not ONLY belong to me.( I have the tendency to put someone else’s burden on my shoulders) Why can’t i just relax and stop trying to “fix everything”. & I easily forgive people whether they have caused a major or minor burden in my life. YES, I am a superwoman, i am fully aware of that, but i must remind myself many times. Surely, iam not a ROBOT. & i need rest from all the mess around me. I’m not trying to be God, but i believe I am an individual that always wants to be a lending hand(In other words, i know the difference).
When do I say stop? Which leads me to the question; How can i even stop helping others? I just feel like it’s my obligation. Once again… When do i stop? When? To be honest, i dont think i will ever stop helping, it has become a habit(i dont know anything else than helping). I recall (very clear) how I always told my dad “stop helping out too much, at the end people will take you for granted”. His answer has always been til today “what do you want me to do? Just sit down and watch when i have the opportunity help”. I can now relate to my dad’s statement. I can’t just sit down and watch.
At first I didn’t want to talk with you about this because I didn’t want to seem two-faced but then God hmmm… He speaks to me in so many perfect ways. He LITTERALY reminded me; I am not only human, iam also devine because he dwells in me. I actually read dailyword and found this paragraph. I knew God was speaking right to my heart since I had these kind of thoughts in my head for so long. Iam forever grateful for the work God is doing in me. I’m starting to understand more and more that the power in me is bigger than myself. It’s not me doing all of these things it God’s work. Therefore, do not thank me, thank God& ALL the glory belongs to Him and not me.
“I know I am only hurting myself when I am unforgiving. Yet even if I want to forgive, I may find it difficult. If I am unsure whether I have the strength to move forward, I bring to mind a simple truth: I am not only human; I am also divine. I can call upon the spirit of God in me for help in releasing the burden of unforgiveness. The moment I turn to God, Divine Love begins its work supporting me on my journey to freedom and wholeness.As I forgive myself with compassion and understanding and release any feelings of guilt, I am able to extend the same to others. I set myself free and release others to God. I am healed by the power of love in me.”
And once again, i must say, the devil is a liar for trying to set me up. Did he really think he was going to stop God for releasing his work in me? LIAR LIAR, PANTS ON FIRE( LITTERALY)!!!
i have finally gained strenght to actually write something interesting(or more like; what i have been up to latley). I should not complain, but i do work a lot, it takes so much of my time. I hardly spend time with my little cassie. All i want to do when i get home is basically eat, watch a movie & finally sleep. Life is bussy in Oslo at the moment. However I just had the sweetest moment in life for a long time with Cassie&Maria, a Delicious dish after a tiring shift after work. YUMYUM! Izzy, you so wanted to be here. I promise :) What else? Im sitting here listening to Mali Music’s new album. Powerful lyrics. It’s wonderful to see how you can serve God in 83928409348 different ways. Amen!
I thought it would be the prefect time to publish some pictures from POLAND, remember? I actually had a really good time there, very short visit though. We did not really have any time to SEE the city, because we spent most of the time on fixing our teeth. My friend Bree, studies denistry&she was( and Me&Elmz as well)were so excited to get everything fixed. Can’t believe she is a denist next summer. She can really do the job. I fixed 1 cavity, but Bree says i might have more( according to the x-ray)but i will have another check up next time i’ll get there. I must admit, i was super duper bad with the camera. I did not catch many moments but don’t you worry, i’m going to hit Poalnd ANY TIME SOON
THE PRESENCE OF LOVE IN ME HEALS AND RESTORES MY SOUL.

I just wanted to let you know that im off to Poland with my BELOVED to visit our BELOVED its’s been five years of nagging, but now we are finally on the way! Pretty excited to see what Poland has to offer
So we had this question spread on Twitter and group facebook(Btw, make sure you are following us @LaGrâce Magazine).
“If you could write a note to your younger self, what would it be in only three words?”
If I am to answer that question I would write thses THREE words on my note; Why so hard-nosed? Ihave always been hard on others and myself… I do believe it has to do with growimg up with really competitive siblings (Since I was the youngest of4, i always wanted to shine)& I always learned the hard way. It can be good and bad at the same time. It’s pretty interesting to reflect about one’s life sometimes. My question is; What would your note look like? Share with us.
How have you all been? What’s the plan for this wekend?
Yesterday clutch magazine, affiliated with Florida State University and CMA organization had there magazine release and a fashion show a Madison Social which is by the way my new hang out spot. Reminds me of Europe, well at least Sweden.
For all of those who know me, this wouldnt come as a surprise at all. I missed the whole fashion show! Yep I was quited bumb. Well, I blame it on my bad habit! Always late ;/
Just another reminder to myself… Whenever I come to a ponit in life, that I no longer can take control over certain things, I do believe God is in control. My ways&thoughts are not his thoughts.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,”declares the Lord. 9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
First and foremost, I need to apologize for my absence. I have been extremely busy lately with school, work( Track & Field – yep to me it’s a full time job). I practice 6 times a week plus two weight sessions. I feel like I don’t have any alone time at all. I wake up, go to school, come home take a nap if I have adequate time, go to practice, go back home ( shower, cook and then eat), the little spare time left is devoted to studying and then back to sleep. That’s literally my day! 6 days a week. Boring? Not really my day is always full of surprises.
I don’t think many of you know that I’m an athlete. Well, I am. More specific a triple jumper. Track and field have been a part of my life for at least a decade. No joke. Also, it’s the reason behind my muscular physique and my 7% body fat( got my Bod Pod results a couple of weeks back and i will tell you about that another day.
A late night post(04:29 in the morning) loads of thoughts pumping around in my head.
“Somtimes Christians think the outward stuff is the thing; as long as i quit getting drunk, i quit cursing people out& I quit having sex. I think I’m cool with that… But the Lord showed me, I had envy, I had lust. I jealously, I had pride in my HEART. He says; It’s not what’s goes into a body that defiles you, but you are defiled what comes out your heart”
I just watched a youtube clip and a woman commented this in an interview… It’s easily done. Many Christians(not only Christians though)sometimes think it’s all about following the laws and then you become righteoues? But c’mon it’s much deeper than that, much bigger than that. As matter in fact, first comes faith(Bible says; faith without action is dead), then afterwards the laws will follow naturally. Believe me i have tried that. I’ve tried to quit with almost everything, but i came to realize that i acted like a hypocrite, i would miss the things of the world too much so i prayed to God that he would help me to draw me closer to him. And as I did the next thing i knew; what used to mean “a lot” to me suddenly became NOTHING to me.( can i have a big AMEN)! As all of these things disappeared in my life, i started to see that they were so many things inside of me that had to disappear as well. This is the hardest part with growing. I will never forget what Td jakes once said on his sermon;”if you don’t fix your heart you will never be promoted”- It doesn’t matter if you preach about God, if you never have sex, always read the bible, do the fastings/prayers or not listening to secular music etc. If you don’t fix your heart. If you don’t humble your heart. Hmm. Everything will be in vain. It’s not about NOT-TO-DO list you’ll, God read hearts. That’s all i’ve got to say. Really!
I just had to share the dailyword with you guys today…
I AM GUIDED BY MY INNER LIGHT.
When baby sea turtles hatch from their eggs nested in the sand, they follow the reflection of the moon on the water to find their way to their ocean home. Every living being has an inner compass, and so do I.
I find my compass through the practice of prayer and meditation, which equips me for my spiritual journey. Daily connection with the presence of God guides me to deeper insights. I ask for spiritual light and understanding, and I am guided in every aspect of my life. I receive strength, love, and peace.
As I navigate my inner ocean of wisdom, I find the answers to my questions. Connected to Source, I never lose my way.
So God is awsome as mentioned before. I have heard of Daily word many times before but never really thought of clicking myself into the website. How stupid of me, but i know everything everything has its’ time. Now is the right time for me. I think it’s so nice and relaxing to read encouraging words that I am embracing. I don’t know what it is, but I feel at home?!(without exaggerating). Another gift sent to me from God, the perfect “food” to my soul just before heading work. Amen!

I EXPRESS MY CREATIVE POWER.
Unity cofounder Charles Fillmore taught that we create our own lives. Our creative power is fueled by the life force moving in and through us, which we direct with our thoughts, words, and actions.
I apply my creative power every time I think and speak. My choices shape my reality. I choose to use my spiritual faculties to create good, attract abundance, and establish peace. I promote peace in the world through my calm thoughts, words of conciliation, and constructive action.
All true power emanates from the love of God within me, and I receive it with humility and gratitude. As I express God’s power in me, I create a better world.
May the Lord give strength to his people! May the Lord bless his people with peace!–Psalm 29:11
xo, Vyupp! you should know by now. i don’t like posts without any pictures. Now live life. Do your very best to enjoy!
