Cupcake bookmarks? Yes please!

Happy Wednesday all! So today I showed up to work an hour early. Oops! I guess it's better than an hour late right? So I decided to head over to the Barnes and Noble down the street and get some books I have been wanting to grab. So this is what resulted in my Barnes & Noble quest.
Good shopping trip!

Let's go from left to right:
Red Velvet Cupcake
I felt like I have been busting my butt at the gym these past few weeks and I deserved my fav cupcake-red velvet.Is it weird that I like my cupcakes cold? I don't like when it's so soft it falls apart everywhere. Plus I like cold frosting. I'm a weirdo I know.
Sticky notes for the books
Cupcake magnetic bookmarks
Aren't these the cutest things ever???!! I love them!
This book is about gaining control over your mind and recognizing dangerous thoughts/patterns with the help of God.
This book is 365 devotionals for loving God, loving Yourself, and loving others.
This book is about learning how to live as a fully alive and feminine woman who is truly captivating. And to let Jesus be your Hero of your story and rescue you.

I also downloaded this book on my phone called Jesus Calling.
This book is about a missionary named Sarah who wrote in her journal for years, she decided to just write in her journal whatever she felt God was telling her. They are written from Jesus' point of view, not Sarah's. She turned her journal into a book of daily devotionals for a year. 

I would like to share today's devotional from this book because it really hits home with what I am going through right now and I found it perfect for me! They are very short and easy to read!

Let me help you through this day. The challenges you face are far too great for you to handle alone. You are keenly aware of your helplessness in the scheme of events you face. This awareness opens up a choice: to doggedly go it alone or to walk with Me in humble steps of dependence. Actually, this choice is continually before you, but difficulties highlight the decision-making process.
So, consider it all joy whenever you are enveloped in various trials. These are gifts from Me, reminding you to rely on Me alone. 

Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me. -Psalm 63:7-8
Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations. Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience. -James 1:2-3

I hope you are all having a wonderful day and stopping to enjoy God's beauty. 

Your turn
-Do you like your cupcakes cold? Or am I the only weirdo?
-Any good christian books you recommend? Or have you read any of these?
-Do you find it hard to accept trials as gifts from God? Be honest.

1. I just love cupcakes in general!
2. Yes, I have read Captivating. Very good book, but kind of repetitive. I would suggest Redeeming Love!! And also "So long, insecurity". I am reading it right now, and it is AMAZING!!!!
3. Absolutely.

I have Captivating but haven't read it yet. I agree with the above comment about Redeeming Love. Best book I've ever read!

Just got your comment on my blog. I can't email you back from the comment because you don't have your email address public on your profile (I can help you change this if you'd like).

I'm not sure if I'm going to add that canvas to my Etsy store yet. If you're interested in purchasing I can set up a special transaction for you! Let me know! :)

I will eat any kind of cake. I'm not picky. : )

I love this devotional called "God is in the Small Stuff, and it All Matters." It's short and sweet, and has the best daily reminders. So good!
