Today we'll be looking at chapter 3 of the gospel according to Luke. If you're new here, welcome! I've been writing on this blog for the past 2 years. I write about my faith and my mental health recovery. Currently I'm working through the 24 chapters of the gospel according to Luke (Click here for… Continue reading Advent Reflection – Day 3
The next few weeks will see us read and reflect on the Gospel according to Luke together (Read Day 1 here). Today we'll be reading Luke 2 (I'm using the Good News Translation from Bible Gateway today, but you can read along using any version you like).
This year I thought I'd take a chapter of the gospel according to Luke each day and reflect on it over the next 24 days leading up to Christmas. At the end of each reflection will be the chapter that I am reflecting on. I will use a variety of bible versions throughout the next… Continue reading Day 1 of Advent – Luke 1
Two years ago I wrote a series of reflections for the whole month of December, which I shared again last year. This year I'm going to write new reflections, for days 1-24 of December. These will be short reflections where I study the Gospel according to Luke. I'll be taking a chapter a day and… Continue reading It’s nearly that time of year again!
Wow! My blog has got rather dusty! I didn't realise quite how long it had been since I last wrote on here. I opened my Bible at 1 Samuel and then Jeremiah before arriving at Romans. I started reading the section in Romans 12 about love. I thought I would write on that, but then… Continue reading Doxology
I was contemplating naming this blog post "For the Love of God", but I thought that might anger some. However, the content of this blog is likely to anger some anyhow. I want to speak about grace. First of all I'd like to ask a direct question to those who know me. Should I be… Continue reading For All – The Hope of Grace
Yesterday I was reading Bible Gateway. I prefer to read the Bible on the go, rather than not at all. Or at least, if I'm very busy, I'd rather do it on the go, rather than not at all. I know that's not ideal. Of course, I prefer to carve out time and sit and… Continue reading Living and Loving
I'm having a good week. I've been very productive in doing housework, art, exercise, reading, writing, working, and spending time with my family. Today I've enjoyed tidying up my art studio and then spending time painting at a local coffee shop. I then popped into church and carried on painting while listening to worship music.… Continue reading A Challenge
When I started this blog (see: What’s the point?) I intended to use it as a way of documenting my times with Abba (this word means 'daddy' which is the term I choose to use for my Father in Heaven - whom others might refer to as simply God or Father God). Over time I've also… Continue reading Hope
September is my least favourite month of the year - every year. It's the one month of the year that I wish I could sleep through. Today marks the one year anniversary since the last time I tried to commit suicide. It's also the 6 month anniversary since the last time I cut myself and… Continue reading Conflicted Anniversaries
