When I first read this on Facebook I knew that it was one of the most beautiful things ever. Today I think that I am going to let this prayer stand alone and not write a lot of text to support it because it’s strong already. This prayer is very personal to you and your family so it’s only fair that I set you with a little task (if you choose to accept it 😉 ). I want you to pray this prayer and share it with your family and friends. I think that it is a lovely way to show them that you care about them and to encourage them that God does too, even if it’s not a special occasion.
I hope that this encourages your family/friends and helps them to draw closer to God even more if they are not already. Just keep praying!
I hope you have a lovely day,
I know that just form the title it sounds like it could be a rock or rap song. But it’s not. It’s really mellow and has a lovely message in the lyrics. This is my favorite song at the moment because I really like the lead singers voice. Here is the song so that you can listen to it and reflect on powerful words about God’s love and our love for Him:

“God doesn’t remove all our imperfections but He makes us beautiful by shining through them”
“The most valuable commentary on the Bible is a Godly Life”
“God’s judgment is certain, but so is His mercy”
“Those who’ve been rescued from sin are best able to help in the rescue of others”
“Do all the good, you can, in all the ways that you can, for all the people you can, while you can”
I think that today’s theme is all about our character. I strive to have a character that best reflects God because who wouldn’t want to be as loving as Him? Also it is having a good character that makes God happy. He doesn’t want us to be horrible to each other because that’s not what He made us for.
How are we to tell the good news to people if we are ugly on the inside and are always miserable and don’t want to share anything with anyone because we don’t like them? We can’t. We should follow in the path that Jesus laid out for us because He loves us. If we love Jesus we should love others because that’s what He does.
I love God and I believe that He is so so good to me and you. It’s amazing that even though we are all imperfect he will shine through us if we allow Him and if we really want to be like Him and set a good example. I hope you understand what I mean 🙂
I know that everyone’s views are different, so if you have a different opinion or if you can better explain what I am trying to get across, then please leave a comment below 🙂
I hope that you all have a good night and that you remember to let God into your heart through prayer and ask Him to let Himself be seen in you rather than our sinful selves.
I found this picture on FaceBook and thought that it was really lovely. This reminded me immegiately of Jesus beacuse He is our best freind and He knows everything about us. Our wrongs and rights, but He still loves us so so much. I just want you to remember that so that if there is ever a time when you feel that the world is against you and that there is no one there for you, you will remember this quote by Elbert and you think of God (even though this may not be what Elbert was implying, it’s what it means to me).
I hope you all have a lovely evening and a good night 🙂
Well today I was reading the newspapers and I read something even more shocking than the sugar! This is the words that the journalist (Nadia Gilani) used:
‘ FIZZY drinks and fruit squashes are being linked to depression in a study involving more than 250,000 people. Downing four cans of sparkling drinks a day raised the risk of mental illness by 30 per cent, while the same amount of squash increased it by 38 per cent, researchers said.’
I was so shocked when I read it and was also very thankful that it made me feel very sick. I am definitely going to be watching what goes into my poor little body and try to be as healthy as God intended me to be by eating the right foods, and most definitely drinking the right drinks.
Today has been a sweet day. I will explain more about why in a minute but for now I wanted to show you a few images of my picture so far. It’s been a slow start for me but I thought that it was unfair for you to be waiting for the finished piece when I’m taking too long to even get to that stage. I will get there eventually after I stop coming up with more ideas and brainstorming. Here are the images along with a project that I am currently doing:
Here are a few images of my Pirate project for college:
Now I am going to explain why my day was sweet. Recently I purchased 4 bottles of Sainsbury’s sparkling flavored water (my favorite) until I found out some shocking news that would put me off it forever…
Apparently it contains SUGAR!! I know that this isn’t very extreme or anything that would upset anyone, but it put me off drinking the rest. I started to feel really sick and had to throw them all away. There’s me thinking that I am doing myself a favor by drinking loads of sparkly flavored water, and it turns out I’m doing myself more damage.
The reason I was sick is because the last time I went to my friends house to have fish and chips I made a huge mistake when looking for the alt. I just saw something white in a bowl with a spoon in it and sprinkled it on my plate only to find out that it was sugar. Ever since that day I have been put off from having sugar in or on anything.
So please, don’t make the same mistakes that I did… no really, please don’t. I’d rather have sugar in chocolate or in something healthier life vegetables or something.
Even though that was one down side to my day I can still say that Life is good, and most definitely SWEET
Have a lovely evening,
I think that this is a really strong quote and I really appreciated the fact that I came across it on FaceBook. This has really benefited me especially at this point in my life where I am striving to be a working artist and set up my own business selling my art and growing my blog. I know that some of the decisions I have made and the decisions that I want to make are going to cause some people to be concerned or try to prevent me from doing what I want and know that I should be doing. Reading this quote has reminded me that first I need to believe in myself and do what I know I need to do to get there and if I start believing in myself, everyone else around me will and realize that I am a working artist and that I am striving to be better for my blog and business.
I want to encourage you all to follow your dreams. I have a dream but it took me years to act on it because I was afraid of jumping over the hurdles and letting people lead me astray. But not anymore. If I don’t believe in myself, how are the people around me supposed to believe in me.
When I first saw this photo I had to laugh. It’s funny how some of the most common quotes/sayings always contradict what they might say to you later in life. After a couple of months I read this quote again and it got me thinking. Lots of people find it difficult or don’t talk to God as often as they should. I can add myself to this list. Sometimes I find it difficult to talk to Him, but He’s still patient with me.
How are we supposed to become best friends with God and have a lovely relationship with Him if we refuse or can’t be bothered to talk to Him. I know that this point is different to what the quote says, but it goes along the same lines.
Recently I have been told by lots of people I know that we need to ‘pray without ceasing’. This is becoming very consistent so I thought that this quote was fitting for my situation. I want to encourage you all to pray and doing so is encouraging me to pray more, especially when things get difficult. I am so thankful that God is still there waiting for me to come back to Him and I really don’t want to let Him down.
I hope that this helped 🙂 and I hope you all have a good nights sleep!
