2015 relflections

What a year 2015 has been. I have finished, but not completed law school! Completed my first legal job, and was offered my second legal role just before Christmas. I have lost a few friends and also made such an awesome group of friends. I have learnt the importance of community and fellowship both at my church and with my family. I have lived in three different parts of London, Bethnal Green, Bow and now Plumstead. I have been able to celebrate 5 years of dating the most wonderful man and been able to call myself “auntie” to two gorgeous babies and a sphinx cat. I have travelled to Italy Rome and Naples, two places I have never been before! I have overcome challenges and obstacles thrown at me this year by Gods grace and love – which I have come to know in a whole new way this year. I am so excited and hopeful for all that 2016 holds and so thankful to God for all that has happened and all that is yet to come!!

What are we living for?

What are we living for?

Is it for man’s praise, or approval?

Is it for that dream job, or that dream house or that dream guy?

It is so easy to get caught up in what the world expects us to be.

To the extent that you end up going through the motions, ticking the boxes and jumping the hoops.

Relationship with God changes our perspective of living.

Relationship with God is the constant reminder that there is so much more to life than what society tell us.

Relationship with God gives us peace that even if we are not where we have planned to be, God is good.

Relationship with God means that even in the midst of what feels like going through motions, or jumping hoops. We can still be thankful and worship a wonderful saviour.

Relationship with God not only changes our perspective of what we are living for.

Relationship with God is living.
