In the movie “Little”, Jordan becomes a bully because she is done being bullied. But this behaviour follows her into adulthood and it is not pretty. She basically stops herself from who she really is because she wants to avoid being hurt.

Have you allowed what others think of you, and how they treat you, stop you from being you? Most of the time when we are trying to be who we’re not it’s a mess, and end up losing so much more. This has never been what God wants for us.

How can you be more of who God wants you to be this week?

Read Romans 12:2 (



Have you ever seen a parent looking at their child with love? The joy on their faces when they pick their child up. The tears in their eyes when they mess up, the pride in their eyes when they succeed. Nothing that child can do, will stop that parent loving them.

Read 1 John 3:1 (

God looks at you in the same way. He loves you so much that He claims you as His own child. You are not just another person or a number in the line, but His precious child who He wants to spend time with and share your failures and successes.


Jesus loves us

Read Luke 7:36-50 (

These verses tell the story of a woman with a past (a sinner), who pours a jar of perfume over Jesus’ feet, wetting his feet with her tears and wiping them with her hair. Everyone else judged her – for her past as well as for her actions that day.

Everyone except Jesus.

Jesus has not changed. He still sees people beyond their mistakes; He sees through the masks we put on for the world. Jesus sees our innermost beings, the real us, where we are made in the image of God. And Jesus loves us.

This song may be a little heavy for some people, but it’s awesome!
It’s inspiring!

What really excited me is that this Christian band was on the iTunes top releases for May. How cool is that?

“Wings are made to fly, made to fly (Made to fly)
Fears are born to die, born to die (Born to die)
Pushin’ through the pain, through the pain (Through the pain)
Pushin’ through, breakin’ through
Whatever it takes, what I gotta do
Givin’ my all, givin’ all that I’ve got
Never will stop ’til I get to the top”

Don’t give in! Press on.
