How Many Times?

How many times? How many times will we walk away before we believe you Father? How many times will we fall away from your gaze and stray from your sight? How many times will the empty promises and small vanities of this world tear us from your arms? How many times Father, will our hearts lead us astray? Tell me Father because I need you. I need your love. I need the strength of your grace and mercy. I need those wings to lift me from the ground and I need your love to get me through the day.

365 Good Things

2014. It is here and although I am rarely one for resolutions, I have made 2. The first is no more selfies. After discovering the word had been added to the english dictionary at some point last year, and the fact that friends were beginning to comment on the number I take and my addiction to social media... I decided that it maybe a good idea to give them a break from my constant selfies.

The second and the main reason I am writing this post is my main goal of this year. I have called it 365 Good Things. It isn't very original I know but the concept lies in the name. For those who know me, and perhaps even those of you who have been following my blog, know that last year was difficult, and seeing the silver lining in everything has been nigh on impossible. So I decided that I am going to challenge myself: to find one good thing about every single day of the year. This is because even when things are bad, I know that because I have Jesus I will always have something to be thankful for. And who knows maybe it will change my outlook on life?
