His Mercy Is New Every Morning

I praise You cos I am Fearfully and Wonderfully Made; Your Works are Wonderful, I know that full well.

For as long as I can remember I have loved to write.  From a young age I loved writing down my thoughts and feelings.  As my life got more messy so did my mind and so I wrote.  When I was alone, and had no one to talk to, which was a lot, I wrote.  When I felt soo bad, guilty or angry, I wrote.  When I couldn’t speak to God, I wrote Him letters.  For as long as I can remember I’ve been threatening to write a book.  But like soo many other things in my life, I’ve done nothing but talk.  I’ve started other blogs in the past but I’ve never been consistant with it. So I cant really tell you where this blog is going. I have allowed my life to get a bit messy again and I’m busy cleaning up my mind… (it’s all about the mind, that is where we win or lose in life). I’m hoping this blog will help me, and maybe going thru these journey’s, I can help someone else along the way. I love to talk, especially about Jesus, and because of the journey I have walked, Jesus has become to mean Everything to me.  This blog is NOT a “religious” blog.  I guess this will probably be where I talk about all the stuff I’ve learnt over my life… And about all the crazy shit that goes on in my head sometimes… lol.  This is my journey.  My life has been a journey of journey’s.  I’d love to have you join me on this journey called… LIFE. 

One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple.

This is how stupid we are!!

Weaknesses

We know what we must do but we continually continue to do the things we shouldnt do.  We rely too much on what others think of us.  We need to trust that God know’s us better than we know ourselves. And He knows how to fix us.

Get out into Nature, Love Nature

The universe is God’s declaration of His love for us.  If you want to know God better, get out into nature.  Nature screams out God’s beauty and His Love for us. It’s there, and a lot of it is still free, you don’t have to pay to watch the sun set, don’t live your whole life indoors and miserable. There is just something about nature that soothes the soul… Maybe, it’s cos God created it for us to enjoy. How can God bless us with more, when we don’t appreciate what we already have.

Seasons

We have seasons in life.  Seasons of growth and maturity, and seasons of death, where God removes baggage we picked up on our journey through life.  What ever season we find ourselves in we must rejoice in it.  God is busy with us, so even if no one else understands… Dont stress. God does… and He has got us. You were NEVER mean’t to do life alone, it has always been God’s intention for us to do it together with Him… And then we wonder why it is so hard…

Rest

We strive too much in life cos society is soo busy telling us who we should be.  We need to learn to relax into God’s Love for us. We need to trust that we are His Work, and He will get us where He wants us to be. Striving is not God’s Way. When I look back on my life I see how much I have changed, not because i’m all that… Not at all, I have changed by hanging out with Jesus. Don’t ask me how it works, but it works.

If trying harder worked, it would have worked by now

make yourself the project. You are important. Treat yourself like you are.

My project's...

Everything we have ever needed to live our lives successfully is within us.  The reason most of us don’t know who we are is cos we don’t know who God says we are.  Don’t go looking outward. Look within.  Your answer to you is inside of you.  Take time.  Read scripture about what God thinks of you.  Believe that…. Don’t listen to the world…. they are more lost than we ever will be. 

There is so much more to life than just work, sleep and eat. God has given us a great big universe to explore.  Go out and find your thing.  Don’t live your whole life without ever trying something new.  There is soo much in life that we never get to see or experience because we think we can’t, or we are to scared…  We need to think outside of our own little box.  Try things you wouldn’t normally try.  Even if you only try it once.  You will eventually find something that you not only love but something that you are good at to.

Do not let anyone tell you Who God Is.  Get to know Him for yourself.  He Is Not who the church says He is.  In fact the “church” of God does Him far more damage than good.  But DO not judge God by the “christian’s” you know.  They are probably more messed up than you are anyway… That’s why they are in church.  They act like they have it all together… but they don’t.  God does not love us all the same… He loves us individually.  Which means He will meet with you where you are at.  He will love on you the way you need to be loved on.  He is not going to love you the same way He loves me cos I am different to you.  He loves you for who you are, not for who you should be… Cos none of us are who we should be.
