A Reminder.

The winter season is coming in rapidly (especially in Manchester!) The nights have come quicker and darker, the trees are bare and the weather is cold. This time of year can be hard for many, it’s not the brightest season and this affects us sometimes. Personally, I’ve found the season change a challenging one, as…

No more living for the culture, we’re nobodies slaves.

A little bit contradictory I’m sure, but I loved Kanye’s new album. In fact, it actually spoke to me! I listened to it on repeat, but one lyric in particular really spoke to me. In Closed on Sunday he sings the lyrics, ‘No more living for the culture, we’re nobodies slaves.’ I’m also not trying…

Where’s your mountain top?

It’s easy to get lost in the chaos of life and feel suffocated by all the things that we should be doing. Often times, the thing that slides the most is our prayer time, quiet time with God or our Bible reading time. There’s probably several reasons for this but that’s not my point. Nor…

For the girls (boys too if you like)

For the girls (boys too if you like) This post has been on my heart for a very long time, I am so excited to share this with you all because I truly believe that this can change things. It is so hard to express the vastness of this subject in written words, there is…

Joy

It’s basically December, so I’ve recently started to listen to Christmas music again. I’ve also started watching Christmas films and actually decorated my Uni flat. While doing all of this, I began to realise something that has changed my life.   The past 6 months have been really hard for many reasons, I’ve found myself…

Uncomfortable

The title above literally is the one word to describe my life right now! What if comfort isn’t the goal? We live our lives constantly chasing after what is comfortable and we therefore think that these things are ‘good’. Think about it practically, we eat ‘comfort food’ (chocolate for me) when we’ve had a bad…

Comparison kills, but you can prevent it.

Whether it’s consciously or sub-consciously, we compare ourselves to other people. Whether it be on bodily appearance, facial appearance, their intelligence, humour, lives, relationships or wealth, we all do it. Summer, statistically, heightens the rate of comparison especially of body image, it seems that Instagram becomes an atmosphere that celebrates ‘bikini bodies’ and who has…

What does Easter really mean for us?

I found it was really well explained in the book of Romans. It’s found in the New Testament, written by Paul probably around the year 57AD, it has 16 chapters and 9,447 words. I think it’s so important to really read into Romans 8:37-39, which states, ‘No, in all these things we are more than…

Be Content

“Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said “never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:35 Reads easily enough, but the Bible becomes real and relevant when you see how it might fit with your life. So, the first…

It’s like having a New Years every week. Re-find your motivation Monday gives…
