Month: August 2015
Shine Lovely Shine
Lately I have that been thinking about that saying-
If you always do things the same way then you will always get the same results.
The last month I have found the weekends to be a time of refreshing, a time to work on projects, to pray and to slow down. You see I have been having a bit of a staycation, I have been enjoying the time staying home and not having to be anywhere and to just spend some time at home. I have also been embracing the time to catch up with family and to just enjoy being with them.
Its funny how in life things can change? I never really liked spending time by myself, it was difficult and I felt very lonely.
Now I love spending time on my own, I really do. It’s important and I do need it and I need to do it well.
I feel that I have needed to have a time of resting. The last 6 months have been busy and things have happened and I have not taken the time to process events before I move onto the next project.
The other night I went to a creative night and met other creatives. I heard from other women that having the space to really focus on being creative helped with their creative ideas. It helped their creativeness to flow to develop.
At the moment I find myself in a new season of stretching of taking a dream, a project, a goal and taking the plunge into embracing it.
I have needed a reminder of why I do what I do.
Changing Ways is my focus for this month and the next month.
Changing ways will bring new experiences into my life, it will challenge me, it will motivate me and it will encourage me.
Is there something in your life that is challenging you to develop a dream or a goal?
What is one thing you can do today to take a step toward your goal?
Will share more soon.
For Such A Time As This
Injustice Moves Her
This weekend provided beautiful blue skies and letting me know that spring will soon be here.
I don’t know what it is about spring, it motivates me it encourages me.
Yesterday I was sorting through things and listening to a podcast I had, which was called INJUSTICE MOVES HER it was from Hillsong Sisterhood.
It caught my attention as I listened to the speaker I was moved, I cried and I felt angry. Injustice produces a range of emotions.
The speaker spoke about women being trafficked, about people who are slaves.
She spoke and shared one story about a woman; I won’t go into it because it was very real and quite disturbing. As she spoke she apologised and said she needed to share it so that we could pray for others that where going through a similar situation.
By this stage I had stopped what I was doing and sat on the chair and listened intently.
Injustice is huge, Injustice is all around us, and Injustice can be changed.
My prayer is that Injustice can be changed.
I believe that we can make a difference. I believe that when we feel upset about injustice when we feel confused about injustice and when we feel shocked about injustice that this would propel us into doing something.
What can we do-
- Maybe a letter to a Member of Parliament about something that is going on in your community
- Maybe helping out with an organisation that you are passionate about
- It could be volunteering your time
- It could be writing about it
- It could be joining in your local community to make a difference
- If could be stepping out of your comfort zone.
There is so much we can do. Don’t let things overwhelm you. Find a cause that you are passionate about and donate some time.
You may never know the impact that you will have or the seeds that you will sow.
I never want to be desensitised by Injustice.
When I see Injustice I want to be known as-
INJUSTICE MOVER HER
INJUSTICE MOVES ME
