Year 11

Today I woke up remebering a today from the past. Waking up and realising my whole life had just turned upside down and nothing would ever be the same. And you said “take courage” and I did. Yet I didn’t realise that courage doesn’t always take the form of a lion; boldness not always identified…

Never

You know that I never told you, that the first day we met you calmed my fear And the day I cried so much you healed me with your audacity to just walk into my mess and sit with me And you know I never told you you still make me smile and, the memories…

Hope & Fears (pt.1)

I was going to write something else today, but this morning a situation added to the heaviness that always rests my heart on this day. I’m going to do what is good for me and take some time out, leave the post for Thursday. This season is one of much joy and laughter, but we…

Fourteen years ago, I was beginning to pack up for uni. Last weekend I went back, to celebrate it’s 50th Anniversary I’ll be honest, I didn’t want to go to Kent, my heart was set on Birmingham and Kent was just the insurance offer I knew I wouldn’t take Fourteen years ago, I was beginning…

#CROSSEQUALSLOVE [NYC 6]

The Love You are Looking For   This morning Jo and I raised ourselves out of bed to get down to Hillsong NYC. I really felt Jesus set the message in my heart even as it was being spoken. Pastor @carllentzNYC spoke a message on ‘The Love You are Looking For’. I took no notes…
