Taken on my walk to work this morning. I’ve added some scribblings from the other day.
Life is a series of in betweens
Paths that seem like dead ends
and some that are not.
Filled with joy beauty, hard times and wonder.
And sometimes it’s a fight
to see the light in the darkness
But most of all I cling to the hope that He is mightier than any troubles that I face.
Even in sorrowful times
I am glad that He holds it all
And brings comfort amidst the tears.
And when I look back
I’m in awe of all He’s done
And grateful that He’s there
all the time.

Some days can be hard. When you’re not sure what to think and feeling anxious about things. With social media we can make our lives look like everything is okay even when it’s not.
There are times when I need to be honest cause sometimes even then I am struggling. Times of feeling lost, unsure, scared, but hopeful all at once. That despite all that I know that He is on the throne, right beside me, cheering me on and knows the rest of the story.
What may feel like one long slog to me is just a small bend in the road. Times of needing to get a different perspective on things. To lean in, be patent when sometimes all I want to do is escape from feeling scared. But actually it’s better to embrace it, to look fear in the face and say ‘I can do this’. To speak up for myself even if it means facing conflict. I usually just want to run and hide in those moments. But I am worth it! I am worth standing up for and my voice matters!
And I’m excited for what is next in the story… Here’s to continuing the adventure that is life..
Spring days filled with wonder
at the beauty of creation
Standing in awe
for each moment
Taking it in like a breath of fresh air
So good for the soul
In the stillness
As we wait.
Some moments are like mountains. When we’ve got to climb through some hard times.
Often travel difficult roads
That may be long journeys
or short ones.
But when we reach the top
What was once before us
Towards a new understanding
A realisation that
We are so much stronger than we think we are.
And that by looking back
How He has carried us through
the toughest of times
And never left
and He never will.
I took this image on my journey home from work this afternoon. I used an app called Over to add text to the image.
Took this picture earlier today after catching up with a wonderful friend. It’s a wonderful place to visit. Saltaire is also a UNESCO world heritage site. It is a model village built by Sir Titus Salt who was a mill owner back in the Victorian era. The image is of the United Reformed Church which is in the village.
Pretty little spring wildflowers.
A few months back I got the picture I bought from Ladi Fi on Redbubble framed. My mum has been looking after it for me while I’m away at university.
