About me

Welcome to Expect Miracles!

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

By: Gabriela Yareliz

This place has never been a place where I pose in daily outfits or sponsor brands. It’s not filled with photos of me posing with a bag dangling from my forearm, while looking impeccable.

It’s not a place where I test different shades of makeup or tell you how to eat. I don’t upload my daily meals or purchases (“hauls”). I don’t take photos of my hand holding something or take photos of my legs in bed with a perfectly made up breakfast tray beside me.
This isn’t a critique of those who do that sort of thing, I just want to be clear– this is not one of those places.

I have never wanted to be known for what I wear, my combinations, my eyeliner or what I eat. I am not a fashionista, or a foodie, or a makeup artist, or a film junkie.

This place has no theme or category, for I am too wild for that.

All I have ever wanted was to share my heart. Not only is it enough, but to me, it’s everything.

Here, I think; I write; I grow; I change; I solidify.

Thank you to all of you who continue to read, exchange ideas and think.

This goes out to the seekers of truth, the philosophers, the pursuers of joy and the curious.

I don’t necessarily want to be seen. I think that is why I love writing so much. I don’t want to be seen; I want to be heard. And I want to thank you for listening.

“The greatest want of the world is the want of men– men who will not be bought or sold, men who in their inmost souls are true and honest, men who do not fear to call sin by its right name, men whose conscience is as true to duty as the needle to the pole, men who will stand for the right though the heavens fall.

But such a character is not the result of accident; it is not due to special favors or endowments of Providence. A noble character is the result of self-discipline, of the subjection of the lower to the higher nature–the surrender of self for the service of love to God and man.

The youth need to be impressed with the truth that their endowments are not their own. Strength, time, intellect, are but lent treasures. They belong to God, and it should be the resolve of every youth to put them to the highest use. He is a branch, from which God expects fruit; a steward, whose capital must yield increase; a light, to illuminate the world’s darkness.

Every youth, every child, has a work to do for the honor of God and the uplifting of humanity.” (Education, Ellen G. White, pg. 58)

I hope that here you find something that inspires you; something that will make you want to be better; something that will make you laugh; something that will make you think; a friend for the journey.

Thank you for reading!

Tu amiga, (Your friend,)
