It’s my favourite time of the week, #FearlessFriday, where I share my friends’ testimonies on my blog. I love this guest posting series and I always find it really encourage to read everyone’s unique stories. Today, my housemate Lorna is sharing about how she began fixing her heart on God in her first year of university.
Sometimes we need to take a rain check and stop to evaluate where we are. Back in January, I decided to start updating you with what’s going on in my life right now. This is different to my Happy Journal because while through that series I’m focusing on the positives and looking at life with optimism, my Currently journal is serving as an ‘anti-Happy Journal’ to document how my life is really going. I don’t want to portray myself as someone who has everything all figured out and it wouldn’t be very intentional of me to hide the bad things from you. I don’t want to dwell on the negatives but it’s just as important to acknowledge them so that you can move on without all that baggage.
I used my trusty friend, Pinterest, to help me come up with some ‘currently’ prompts in order for me to open up about the things going on in my life right now.
It’s not Monday. But right now every day feels like Monday and so publishing my Happy Journal a day late when it doesn’t feel like it is good enough for me.
Sometimes our gratitude list is not huge. Sometimes that’s it’s hard to see the good things when life is hectic or not going as we planned or nothing spectacular happens that makes us think: ‘yes, I’m definitely thankful for that’. Being grateful for the little things is so important because it allows us to truly appreciate things we often take for granted. Like my trip to the dentist that you’ll learn about below. Things matter, no matter how big or small.
It’s Friyay and time for another #FearlessFriday! I love this series so much and I’m so thrilled to be able to have testimonies from my Christian friends near and far shared on this little space on the internet. As I say every week, every testimony is so special and unique which is awesome because we get to see the many ways that God works through His children.
Today’s testimony is from my good friend Karl, who was the unfortunate person I projected a lot of my silly questions onto when I was first exploring Christianity myself. He has seen me transition from my most unbelieving ways to a Christ-seeking woman that I hope I am today, so he has played a big part of my journey.
How are we a quarter of the way through 2016 already? This past month has been so busy for me and I don’t think that April is going to be any different as it’s very full on at university. I’ve planned this month’s goals so that I can be more intentional as I plan my time. But first, let’s review last month’s goals.
