Worship Wednesdays #5: Love Him Like I Do

•March 4, 2015 • Leave a Comment

This is a song I have loved for years.
I was talking to a friend the other day and it was playing in the background and I started singing along..

#That’s why I love Him like I do I..


A Week in Review: #9

•March 1, 2015 • 4 Comments

I started writing spoken word again.

I was on my way to work one morning – Late, I must add – and I just started thinking of some lines that sounded like a new piece. I have shared some of my spoken word pieces on the blog before. I enjoy writing.. It is definitely one of my favourite past times.
So, before I realised, I’d written about 10 lines on beauty and perceptions. I don’t know where it came from, but it was good – and I caught it before it disappeared.

I can’t quite fathom the fact that March has begun. We are already into month 3 of 12. It always goes so fast, but when you have things to do, deadlines to meet, it feels like it goes even faster. I have so much to do and I worry that I won’t be able to get it done.. But I will.

So last week.. I got to catch up with someone.. But it was more an introduction than catching up – without explaining the situation, it seems difficult to explain. I am very hard on myself because I have to be and I know I am capable of amazing things. But.. Pressure. Then there are expectations from outside sources on top of my own. Makes for heavy thinking. I just want to be amazing at what I do. I have found myself thinking I may never do what it is I know I can and in that same moment pushing that negative self-talk out of my mind because you know what..? I can do it.

On Friday evening after work I went to Young Adults – a youth group at church – after that I went to a party to celebrate someone’s birthday. I arrived home just before sunrise and effectively did damage to my plans for the day. I have been trying to catch up ever since.

Today is a new day. One where I have decided that if I put my mind to it, it can be done. It’s crunch time now.. No more messing about. In 3 weeks I want to be able to say that I have done it.. Done it well and move on to bigger and better things.. And when I’ve done it.. I’ll tell you all about it! :)

Walking on Sunshine!

So today the impossible happened.

I got a missed call on my mobile at 16:09 this afternoon. I was away from my desk and my phone was in my drawer.
I look at who the missed call was from and sigh. It was the electrician. The electrician who really should have fixed our intercom when we moved in 8 months ago. I called him back. It was 16:17. He asked me if I was at home. I said I was still at work but I’d be finishing at 4:30. He explained that he wanted to come over to look at the intercom. I had plans after work but this preceded them. I said it would take me 20-30 minutes to walk home from work and he said he’d meet my there. By the time I got up to my apartment, he was already waiting for me outside of my front door.
I let him in and I showed him where the intercom was. He looked at it, pushed a few buttons and then took of the front panel. After pushing a few more buttons he told me to go downstairs and call the apartment – to which I complied. I called and all of a sudden the intercom was working. Something that we had been waiting 8 months for took all of 5 minutes to fix. This realisation irritated me. I thanked the electrician and let him out of the apartment then it hit me. No more writing notes of deliveries, no more running down 14 flights of steps to get to the ground floor only to find that whoever was there had left already.. No more inconvenience!

For this reason and this reason alone I am definitely walking on sunshine!

Definitely not much to report this week.
I am working tirelessly.. In the library every day after work and it feels good to finally be in the swing of working hard consistently. As I am shattered, I will keep it short this week..


Worship Wednesdays #4: Jesus At the Centre

•February 18, 2015 • Leave a Comment

I have been having a bit of a crazy time recently.

Stressed out and trying to rectify certain situations. At times I have almost lost my cool, but I feel I have always been dignified in my dealings with the whole housing and utility issues.. But I feel like I have reached my tether and am now saying Jesus needs to be the centre, take the wheel and just resolve this situation for me.. I also need a delivery of patience if anyone has any spare..?

Anyway.. Israel Houghton.. Jesus At the Centre because I am struggling and definitely need some Jesus..!


A Week in Review: #7

•February 15, 2015 • 4 Comments

I’ve been getting up to exciting things this week! Doing things like googling how to  make the perfect chicken sandwich.. Because you know.. These things are of much importance!

So Valentines?! Do I talk about it or nah? Nothing major happened if I’m completely honest. I stayed in bed, got some work done.. Had a few naps.. Yes. A few :D

This week I have been firefighting. What I mean by that is that I have been having to sort out a few things regarding the bills and such in the property. I am determined that one day – in this city, in a property – that I will not have any housing issues. All of it gets very old very quickly.
Since last November, my housemate and I have been trying to rectify a bill I believe we received in error. Unfortunately for me my housemate took it into her own hands to pay said bill so there’s nothing much we can do further with regard to this – outside of me paying my half; which works out at £94, for a miscalculated bill. I am used to living on my own and being independent. Living with someone else is a challenge that is getting harder by the day. When we first moved in together it was fine.. And then one day, it just wasn’t. I am a bit of a clean freak – okay I am very much a clean freak – Her.. Not so much. We’d agreed on certain things before we moved in together and it seems that our standards in a lot of things are very different.
Anyway, in the last 2 weeks I have spent hours between utility companies and with our residential supervisor trying to rectify this problem. I am hoping that by the end of this week I would have sorted this out and would be able to draw a line underneath it.

In the meantime I will continue on my little project that I will tell you all about when it has been completed.

This is make or break week.. I’m hoping to make it so very hard that I break it!
Wish me luck!

Nothing Even Matters

When I was younger I used to listen to Lauryn Hill. She was one of my favourites.. Her album – The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was something I listened to often.. I could probably say that I even knew all the words. I was 8 years old. This is so very nostalgic and reminiscent of my childhood.. Playing outside with the other children.. Riding my bike, wind in my hair.. Going to school.. Spending time with my family.. It’s an album that I think I may have to have a listen to again soon.. It’s been a while..

Here is Lauryn Hill ft. D’Angelo – Nothing Even Matters..
