Day 30: Some of my fave people and how they show they love me

I was thinking the other day for some reason about who I would want to be my bridesmaids and I realised that if I were to get married anytime soon then this would be an impossibly hard decision to make because there are too many people I am very fond of, who I’d love to involve Continue reading

Day 28: Fave/most impactful book I’ve read

Lol this one may be pretty hard to do as I barely ever read. :L A fair number of mental illnesses come with the wonderful inability to concentrate, so reading is fairly difficult for me. :’) I am reading a book at the moment though called ‘The Four Loves’ (it’s not really going that well…), which is by C.S.Lewis and is about the different ways humans can love. The bit I’ve read so far is really good, although I often get lost and have to go back and re-read whole sections which is annoying.(anyone else experience ‘brain fog’? :P) I always get such a sense of accomplishment when I finish a book, especially now that it’s extremely challenging for me to read.

Day 27: My core values?

Hmmm core values… well, being a Christian I could just state the golden rule which is just to treat others as you’d wish to be treated, and that does sum up my core beliefs pretty well to be honest, but I’m just going to go into a bit more detail. There are some things which I hold as core values, yet I frequently do things that conflict with it, but that doesn’t mean it stops being one of my core beliefs, it just means that I suck at being a good person… :L Continue reading

Day 24: How God has shown he loves me

Well, the clear answer to this one is that he sent Jesus his only son to die for me, so that I might have eternal life, enjoy life to the full here on earth and to know God. But how has God shown his love for me in my own personal life?

Well first off, by giving me life. Life is a blessing and each day is a gift (that’s why they call it the present ;)) God has provided for me in so many ways, giving me friends and family, helping me when I am stressed/anxious and I remember to pray, he’s given me a roof over my head and food and clean water. ( I am not saying that God loves certain people more because they are in better situations, each person is loved infinitely by God, God’s love for them is simply revealed in different ways in their life.) God has revealed his love to me in very real ways through worship for example, and he has also spoken through other people with words of wisdom and just generally kind things people say.

Another big one is that he has preserved my life. I don’t think I’ve really written much about this on my blog, but in my first year of uni I tried to kill myself and had to be rushed to hospital…anyway it was just amazing how God 1) didn’t let me die 2) He placed a Christian lady in the bed opposite me to pray for me 3) My parents were so loving and concerned towards me (not like how I feared they would be).

God is good, and his loving is just amazing.

God bless you, I hope you know how precious you are to God xoxox
