HeCallsMeHisBeloved.

You could spend your whole life haunted
By a past that’s He’s forgotten
If we could just receive it
Like a bird we would fly free

God told me to dance to this song. I felt like such a muppet dancing round my room. But He was right, it turned my focus from miserable me, got my eyes back on him and filled me with his Joy. :)

Very thankful I have a God who knows me better than I know myself.

"You will never regret kindness."

It’s true. A kind word, a smile, a cup of coffee, an encouraging text.. simple and unremarkable ways in which to love those around you.

I was reminded that you cannot give away what you do not have. Unless we have received God’s love, then how are we supposed to love others unconditionally, recklessly, sacrificially?
God is love. Whoever lives in love, lives in God. It is important to go back to the source every day, receive his love, thank him for his love, then live out of his love.

Lots to think about today.

We’re working through Ephesians at church. It’s great teaching and can easily be applied to modern day life. 

The past two preaches have been on marriage, relationships and have also touched on the role of men and women. I’m genuinely impressed to see a church that is willing to brave potentially controversial  topics and give answers based on biblical truth. I don’t agree with everything (i’m still processing) but some really good points raised on how to interpret and understand difficult bits of scripture.

I’m hoping that change isn’t hopeless.
