Over the past few days, I've found myself thinking a lot about family. My biological family, my church family, my uni family - just family. I don't know why my brain has decided for this to be at the forefront of my mind but as I was eating dinner just now, I felt compelled to… Continue reading Blood Doesn’t Make You Family
Music has had a special place in my heart for as long as I can remember. From listening to singing to learning to play my first instrument. Music becoming a coping mechanism and a reward and something for when I'm bored. I'll be the first to say, I am not the greatest musician in the… Continue reading Something to be Enjoyed
Thursday to Sunday to last week, I attended my first ever festival. It so just happened that it was a Christian music festival. Who knew?!
Dear Me, I think this is going to become a regular bloggy thing. Today, this blog is positive. And that is a very good thing indeed. First things first Happy Easter. Jesus is alive! He paid the ultimate sacrifice and paid the ransom for us - "For God so loved the world..." Today you,… Continue reading He is Risen! | Dear Me
He right, and He is true. He is a faithful God. It might not seem it at times but He does not wish us harm. He loves us so much that He sent His only Son, our Brother to die for us. Having faith and trust in God is the most amazing thing because He doesn’t let you down.
God loves us for who we are. None of us are exactly the cleanest of the bunch, we’ve all done stuff and will continue to do stuff that upsets Him. But He still loves us. He is our heavenly father. He’s forgiven us, He’s saved us…there is nothing left for us to do to gain His love. We just have to love Him.

For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the Lord made… Continue reading Worshipping our Father
He sent His Son because He loves us. We don’t deserve His mercy or His grace. Yet, for those who believe – we have it. Christ died for us, who would do that? It’s ridiculous – that’s why it’s so amazing. We are reconciled with God because of the sacrifice of Jesus. I find that amazing, and because of that sacrifice – we can have a relationship with God.
A question I get asked by a lot of people is why I have faith. Why do you have faith after your mum died? Why do you have faith after the bad start you had in life? Why do you have faith with your mental health issues? Why do you have faith? And it is a fair enough question, a completely fair and understandable question and I hope to try and answer that question in this blog.

Take the yoke I give you. Put it on your shoulders and learn from me. I am gentle and humble, and you… Continue reading Giving Over Your Burdens
