My world needs you

Hello everyone, It’s a cold day here in Dublin, but I’m happy and grateful for life, despite being a little more tired than usual for a Tuesday. Today I have a song to share. It’s not a new song, and I’ve heard it quite a few times, but this afternoon, as I was thinking and asking God for grace over all aspects of my life, the song took on a new depth for me. The song is called My World Needs You, by Kirk Franklin, and a few other artistes. I really hope someone is blessed by listening. 🙂 May God bless you all, and may all of us in desperate need of God’s help always remember that He is AN EVER present help in times of trouble, and actually at all times. ❤  

Streams and The Spirit

Hello everyone! First, apologies on not responding to comments individually as I liked to do in the past. Now I literally blog while I have time during the work day, so I post and vanish till the next time I want to post. But I read every comment, and I’m deeply grateful for your love and support. Over the weekend, I read a scripture that moved me immensely. I was lying on my bed talking to God, telling Him that I feel a little thirsty in my spirit. Like, I was longing to spend time with Him, but I had been so tired, and making unwise choices (like watching late night movies haha) so I hadn’t been able to wake up and spend time with Him in the morning, as I love to. And then, somehow, I came across Isaiah 44: 1-4 “But now listen, Jacob, my servant,    Israel, whom I have chosen. 2 This is what the Lord says—    he who made you, who formed you in the womb,    and who will help you: …

Homesickness and rememory

This has been a most beautiful week. Easily one of the most beautiful weeks I’ve had in Dublin. I’ve made friends, whose company I truly enjoy; I’m getting a hang of my role at work, and I can find my way around this new city much easier than before. But it’s also been a most emotional week, the good emotions though. Joy, peace, gratitude, clarity of thought (is that an emotion?) Yesterday I went to see a movie with my friends at 10pm (don’t worry, my area is safe.) It wasn’t the wisest decision as we all had work the next day, but as one of my friends said, you only live once. Also tickets were only 8euros so it was a financially smart decision. On our way back, my friends and I (me and three guys) took pictures by the bridge, and generally made good cheer. I must have used the word “beautiful” at least a hundred times. The bridge was beautiful, as was the water, and the sky, and people, and life, and …

Some days are like that

Hello everyone, I hope you’re all doing very well. Life still gets overwhelming. A few days ago, I was having a conversation with my recruiter; as in, the lady who called me and liked me and passed me through the first round of interviews for my job. As we spoke over hot chocolate, she asked me about how I’m adapting to my new city and job and life. I’m adapting well, I said, but it’s still just hitting me that when I packed my bags and waved goodbye to New York, I was heading into a city that I had never even visited. I was essentially heading out into the unknown. All I had, as I made that big move, were my faith in God and my trust in His promises. And boy has He been good! However, some days, like today, I still get overwhelmed. I’m here at work, trying to work well. I’m at that phase where I kind of know enough to walk around my office and my city without the fear …
