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
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
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
As far as Psalms go, this one is not too long. At 40 verses, though, it took me several minutes to read. I'll insert the Psalm here; before writing about it further: Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong; 2 for like the grass they will soon… Continue reading Psalm 37
I've missed writing, but I've struggled to get back into it. My mental health hasn't been great recently, but, having said that I've actually taken some positive steps in my recovery. Of course, if I stop to look back on the past month, it's been filled with lots of blessings. One of the biggest blessings… Continue reading I’m Back!
I have a 'thank you' to say to someone who doesn't even know me. Philippa Hanna has written a devotional book which I picked up for the first time today. In today's reflection/devotional she speaks about rejection - particularly rejection towards creatives for their work. She mentions that people like Walt Disney were rejected for… Continue reading Anxiety and Comfort
When I was pregnant, with my youngest, I suffered from Hyperemesis - a severe form of 'morning' sickness. The safest I felt was in hospital- I'd cry when they sent me home. I knew that it wouldn't be long before I was back in, on a drip. I feel a bit like that now; this… Continue reading It’s Hard To Keep Going
Today I read 1 John chapter 4 in the New King James Version. It was too long for me to simply speak about it all, so I've decided to write 'sermon-style' blog posts on each section over a few days. For today's post I'll speak about 1 John 4: 1-6, which says "Beloved, do not believe… Continue reading 1 John 4 – Part 1
Firstly let me start by wishing you a Happy New Year. This morning I woke up with an image in my mind for a painting, which I'll do later. It's linked to the verse, 'Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.'
It might seem an odd phrase, dabbling with doubt, but it came to me whilst driving yesterday. I had observed, through inner reflection, that I started to dabble with doubt at a young age. Doubt quickly lead to fear and anxiety. These three became habitual and all consuming. As a parent I have observed my… Continue reading Dabbling with Doubt
