a little bit random, but hold me Jesus

So I'm here listening to music, staring outside my window at the cloudy Summer day, thinking.

my favourite moment in life is when i'm silent and it hits me. Jesus is real and He loves me.
that part in time, a mark in history, when He has never been so real. 
It's holidays and Christmas is coming up in ten days and I've got this new house that we've moved into and I can breathe.

I've been writing a lot of words lately. Lyrics, thoughts. I can't wait to unpack my books so that I can read Pride and Prejudice, something I never would have dared to do before I picked up Jane Eyre. 


Watched Amazing Grace today; I do love this movie. Because William Wilberforce aspired to do what God wanted him to do; when no-one else really gets what he's saying. He was brought down so many times... but he never gave up. I admire him.

Taking photos, attempting another draft of my novel. But I'm stumped; where am I supposed to find my character's problem? Her thing to solve? Because I've got nothing big enough... I guess I'll keep on writin'.


Listening to: Beyond Words, Tenth Avenue North



"Listen carefully: Unless a grain of wheat is buried in the ground, dead to the world, it is never any more than a grain of wheat. But if it is buried, it sprouts and reproduces itself many times over. In the same way, anyone who holds on to life just as it is destroys that life. But if you let it go, reckless in your love, you'll have it forever, real and eternal.

 "If any of you wants to serve me, then follow me. Then you'll be where I am, ready to serve at a moment's notice. The Father will honor and reward anyone who serves me.

 "Right now I am storm-tossed. And what am I going to say? 'Father, get me out of this'? No, this is why I came in the first place. I'll say, 'Father, put your glory on display.'"
John 12:24-28

  1. Oh, wow, I love those verses. And I love your blog's new look, it's so...you! Isn't it amazing, those *moments*? The moments when you're just sitting there, and it hits you: Jesus loves me! :) I love that feeling!

  2. Whenever I read your blogs that include something like the weather, I get the feeling that your life is parallel to mine!
    This will sound a bit stalker-style, but which state in Australia do you live? The weather you describe is always the weather I'm experiencing.
    Today I was so close to watching 'Amazing Grace' at home, I was bored and wanted to be inspired and I love that movie. But I ended up on the phone to a friend :P
    Also, a good friend of mine forced me to listen to that song by Tenth Avenue North, so I did and I loved it. This happened today after the almost-'Amazing Grace'-watching.
    So yeah, feelin' pretty similar to your blog post right now :P
    Sorry about the length of this comment. Putting the similarities aside, I love reading your blog. It's a breath of fresh air from all the negative statuses that bombard my facebook homepage. :)
    God Bless -xx
