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
Today, I went to my first house group in over a year. I know right? Me the 'oh so perfect Christian who does everything right'. Well, firstly Louise, there's no such thing as a "perfect Christian" and secondly, it's not your fault you haven't been for a year. Oh really blog writing Louise? I could… Continue reading God has a plan
Tuesday August 4th. I am feeling extremely loved today. And that is because I got Skyped into the Bible study I was missing out on, it was fabulous. Obviously, it wasn't as good as being there in person but getting to look at God's word with my Brothers and Sisters was amazing. I totally needed… Continue reading The Ramblings of a Loved Dog Sitter | Day Four
Monday August 3. 8 magpies, 4 teas, 3 walks, 2 phone calls and one bunny rabbit later, day three of dog sitting is coming to a close. Nothing that exciting happened today, but I am really beginning to feel highly isolated out of town with no one to talk to. Writing these blogs is probably… Continue reading The Ramblings of an Exhausted Dog Sitter | Day Three
I’m not ashamed to say I cry at TV shows and films. I cry when something overly happy happens or I cry when something overly sad happens. I cry when people die in TV or films.
I’ve had a lot of spare time since the university term finished. Time to binge watch TV series on Netflix, edit the student mission videos, and to think. I have spent a lot of time thinking. I think at other times in the year but when you have no commitments, no obligations, you think more.
I don’t have a right to feel unloved because the greatest Father of them all loves me. I am not unwanted because God created me, Jesus died on the cross for me. I am not out of place as God placed me here to fulfil his purpose. I am not a nuisance because God made me in His image and I highly doubt He’d create a nuisance.
I’d like to tell you a story. A tale that has taken a long time to find it’s ending, but with its ending sparks a new beginning. No, I’m not talking about my journey to faith. No, I’m not talking about starting the university walk. I’m talking about something much more important, much more difficult. Much more personal.
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.
