A Prayer about Identity

Bless these fingers and these eyes
Bless them that they know new life
Give me strength to hold on tight
I know I need your hand, your might.

Give me hope even through dark
Like a child I wish and ask
As if I know what's right for me
But your design reveals to see,

That with your perfect time and Grace
You care with me in all I face
There is no answer you don't know
No mountain task, no knot of bow

So bless these fingers, bless my eyes
Take me Jesus, be my guide.

On Saturday someone told me that I cannot find who I am in what I do, I should do what it is that I love, because of who I am. My desires are not wrong, they are part of being made in God's image. Blogging, beauty, fashion, design, friendship, teaching, feeling and dreaming is all tied into who I am and I must nurture those things, not put them away in a box, not be ashamed of them.


  1. This is such a sweet prayer. I love what you said after it too, about your talents and interests being a part of you as a piece of God's creation! A couple years ago someone told me that God really wants us to be happy, and I had never really considered that before, despite the fact that it is obviously true! Loving yourself and doing what you love is all part of that happiness that God is pushing you towards.


    1. Funny how even though I published this myself I need to read it myself too.<3

happy couple app review.

Levi an I have been using a relationship quiz app for a month or so now.

It keeps us talking about topics that aren't currently part of our lives. Like what do we think we would be like as parents.

When I started I was confused and didn't know how to use it or where everything was, but I can look back and say I wasn't actually missing anything. Also I like the bright colours :)

You can see where we do best in the different topics as questions are answered correctly. This here shows that we probably have more of a friendship dynamic with our relationship.

It personalises the questions by substitution your partner's name, so you never forget who the question is about :p

And tells you when your partner has played and the results are in...

Sometimes the answers available are quite extreme and there's a lack of medium options.

That's when being able to write your own answer comes in handy.

What would you answer for this question? Can you answer it right for me too?

2 Cautionary Arguments against The Passion & Message Bible

2 Peter 1:20-21 English Standard Version Knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone's own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.


Do not expect the information in the following article to be particularly subjective or unnecessarily negative. It is meant to be informative and helpful for those who are interested in thinking through this subject for themselves. This article is only intended to encourage looking into this for yourself.

My bible is the 1984 New International Version (NIV) by the International Bible Society and was published by Zondervan. It was worked on by over 100 translators, from all over the world and from a number of church denominations. It is a balance between word-for-…

Why I'm Not Using Hormonal Birth Control

When I was recently trying out a new birth control pill, I immediately started showing symptoms that I could not deal with on a daily basis. Then I got to thinking about the long term effects  this drug could have and it was then, at 4 days into my pack, that I remembered the dreadful dark depression that I suffered the first time I was on the pill.

That season of depression was now 5 years ago, but it brought to light some on going mental health issues that I still have to live with today. That depression that was either brought on by my first few months on GINET, or my pre-existing poor mental health was catalysed by the drug; turning from chronic anxiety to very suicidal depression.

I only wish I knew that I had a history of anxiety. Instead I put the daily bats in my belly down as morning sickness, or butterflies due to a boy I liked. Back then I had no idea that mental health and mental illnesses were a thing, or that other people in my family were medicated for such problems.
