Anything I did value would often get shelved for the people I wanted to value me

Keywords: {0}

I would supress, shelve and ignore what I valued until one day I woke up and didn’t even recognise myself anymore. Yet when I became single, I found that I spent an almost unhealthy amount of time alone, this was however a necessary evil because in that time I picked apart everything I had ever known, I studied scripture, watched sermons, read self-help book after self-help book. I analysed, I tested and reanalysed. Eventually, started hanging around different people, I observed, took notes and after a lot of trial and even more error, I started to understand what I valued, more importantly I started to understand why I valued those things.

[Seeking wonder in a natural space that is sacred to others is a] kind of tension I want to try and resolve, even if it takes a long time, because it seems like the kind of tension that requires action, especially if I plan to keep visiting National Parks that once belonged to someone else

Some of what made the experience feel so mystical to me, I think, is the fact of walking through a space that has accommodated so many rituals and prayers. Inevitably a place like that acquires a kind of glow.

I want to be there for all of you

I’m going to try to write a little bit for everyone. Everyone is different and needs to hear different things to help them on their Christian walk, so I’m going to post twice a week. On Mondays, around 7:00 am, I’m going to post a verse for the week and how that verse can help all of us. On Thursdays, around 7:00 am, I’m going to make a post about a personal story, a question I got from a reader, an interview with a fellow Christian, and more. Then, every so often, I’ll post Bible study and book reviews.
