My God is Alive

By: Gabriela Yareliz When we feel discouraged, let us remember that God is not dead. God is alive. God is working in every earnest heart that is humble and ready to receive Him. When confusion rages– we must remember that there is a movement of people that is on its knees. A movement of people…

Merry Christmas

“The Christian story is precisely the story of one grand miracle, the Christian assertion being that what is beyond all space and time, what is uncreated, eternal, came into nature, into human nature, descended into His own universe, and rose again, bringing nature up with Him. It is precisely one great miracle. If you take…

Being Human: Here Comes Autumn

FALL TRANSITION By: Gabriela Yareliz And here we are. Inside of my little studio, French jazz playing, little amber candles burning and the drawers of my dresser only half closed. That’s the way it goes on a Friday where I don’t want to leave my house anymore, and I just want to start my sentence…

This Past Season

“And after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself restore, support, strengthen and establish you.” 1 Peter 5:10 By: Gabriela Yareliz I always do enjoy putting my thoughts out into letters. It sort of shifts things in time…

The Abolition of Man

Thoughts by: Gabriela Yareliz, based on The Abolition of Man (all quotes are from the book, unless otherwise specified). There was a hypothetical presented at a meeting. The hypo: A person commits a crime and is arrested. What are possible solutions to this, was essentially the question posed to the group. The serious suggestions offered…

Sunday Girl: June 18, 2017

By: Gabriela Yareliz Happy Father’s Day to all the papas out there! We are starting a new week! Last week, I celebrated one year with my love, and I ate a giant artichoke for the first time. It was peculiarly good. I feel like life has been such an adventure. I have been learning so…

The Problem With Being Sincere In Our Error

Sincerity of belief does not justify the belief. This is why we must seek truth, which is something objective and absolute, not subjective. “A drunkard reaches a point at which (for the moment) he actually believed that another glass will do him no harm. The beliefs are sincere in the sense that they do occur…

Two Kinds of People

“There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, “Thy will be done,” and those to whom God says, in the end, “Thy will be done.” […] No soul that seriously and constantly desires joy will ever miss it. Those who seek find. To those who knock it is…

True Love’s Kiss

By: Gabriela Yareliz True love’s kiss is not just a song by Amy Adams in the movie Enchanted. Though the movie is phenomenal. There is the jaded, divorced father, the young believing daughter and this wacky, innocent princess character that enters their lives. Spoiler alert, the opposites attract and fall in love. Ahh, what is…

Sunday Girl: January 29, 2017

By: Gabriela Yareliz On Sundays, I wake up like Kate, from the movie No Reservations. You know, the chef. She wakes up early to pick out the fish and truffles for her fancy West Village restaurant. I wake up early and pick up the missing ingredients for the dishes I want to make for the…
