Day 26: My religious beliefs

As many of you can tell from my blog, I’m a Christian. This means I believe in Christ: his coming, his dying, his resurrecting and his second return. I also believe in the Holy Spirit who is my comforter and revealer of hidden truths. I believe in God, who is my Father, my mighty warrior, creator of the universe and my closest friend.

Day 8 of 30

Hello there!

Thanks for showing up for today’s challenge. How’s the weekend going? One would think that I’d write much earlier being that it was a Saturday, but on the contrary, it’s a lot harder to do so. It’s been a week since I committed to this challenge and I must be honest, it’s hard to follow through most times. But I’m not giving up till the goal is achieved! And neither should you! ๐Ÿ™Œ We can do this together!

How to Deal with the Broken

Dealing with the BrokenGrowing up in a culture where everyone had to โ€˜toughen upโ€™ meant that negative emotions of anger, pain, hurt, depression etc. had to be hidden or suppressed.

Keep Breathing

IMG_20180211_125713Take a deep breath in

Hold it for a moment

Now let it go slowly

Feel that?

Youโ€™re alive.

That may or may not excite you

As life has been a little shaky lately

Almost as if the solid rock you once stood on

Is melting ice, thanks to global warming!

Youโ€™re alive.

ย Thatโ€™s something, isnโ€™t it?

It means you still have another chance

To allow life smack you in the face

Or run to the throne of grace.

Everyone dies someday

But for you, not today

So do me one favour, love

Keep breathing.
