WFW-The Mountains Declare the Goodness of God

The Lord is my stronghold, I will not be shaken

Psalms 125: 2 ” As the mountains surround Jerusalem, So the Lord surrounds His people from this time forth and forever” (NASB)

The Lord is my refuge, whom shall I fear

Psalms 11:1″In the Lord I take refuge; How can you say to my soul, “Flee as a bird to your mountain”(NASB)

God’s love to me is unconditional, His peace is always before me

Isaiah 54:10″For the mountains maybe removed and the hills may shake, but my loving kindness will not be removed from you, and my covenant of peace will not be shaken,” says the Lord who has compassion on you.

God is enternal

Psalms 90:2 “Before the mountains were born or You gave birth to the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God”

There are places in China especially in the southwest part where people believe that their gods dwell in the mountains. They regard the mountains as their sanctuary, you can even see altars on top. They climb the mountains to worship their gods.  May you always remember China in your prayers.

I took the pictures when i visited Yangshou County in Guilin, this place is so popular with the foreign backpackers, it’s amazing to know that most of the locals can somehow speak and understand English.

It's a Shame!

A couple of days ago I was battling with fears and worries, negative thoughts were bombarding my mind, I knew it’s just the attack of the enemy and not really healthy to feel that way. These feelings stole my joy, peace and even my strength both spiritually and physically. If we let these things master us, it will overwhelm us with doubts, insecurity and soon destroy our relationship with others and with the Lord.

Rather than digesting all those negative thoughts, I did what Apostle Paul said in Philippians 4:6-8.

Instead of being anxious I prayed and I made known to God the fears and worries that I have and instead of grumbling I thank and praise Him for everything that he’s doing in our life. And whatever is true, honorable, pure, lovely and of good refute I dwell on those things. As I started to meditate His goodness in my life, he reminded me of His greatness, of his sovereignty, of his grace, his mercy and love. And I was blown away by his faithfulness in my life. (Sigh) how shameful it is to doubt the love of Christ for me.

Finally these are the photos that I want to share. The pictures were taken last December when we visited Guilin, the city is situated in the northeast part of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. Tourism is the main source of income of the city that’s why all the tourist attractions have entrance fee.

the famous Li River

This is just one of the streams that we saw in park, we’re not sure if the streams are natural or just man-made, we saw a lot of big pipes, we thought the water might be coming there

pagodas in fir lake

The food is one thing i want to try everytime i visit new plances. We visited a guilinese restaurant,we saw a lot of people eating there, we thought, it might be a good restaurant but the food were not really good or maybe we didn’t pick the right one. Guilinesse people love spicy food.

pork bbq, celery, coconut milk soup, forgot the other one

the famous guilinese rice noodle

our dessert

those look yummy but not really healthy

beef noodle (nothing special) , i can cook this though

I guess that’s all for now, thank you for visiting my site i do appreciate it so much!

Blessings everyone!
