One of those Weeks!

Do you ever get one of those weeks where you think everything is against you? Well I am having one of those weeks. Firstly on Monday evening I reversed into a parked car, dented its door and front wing and also smashed up my rear bumber. It was dark, late and miserable weather and I wasn't paying attention enough. I only have myself to blame for this. My reaction in the car on the way home was less than Christian I must admit. Some words passed my lips that should not have and I got really rather angry with myself. Insurance is sorting all this out for us. Ironically it was a couple of hours after I had ordered my new company car. Not sure if there is anything too that!

Secondly, today my central heating has stopped working on a day it is rather cold and I am working from home. Another thing to sort out and pay out on.

I know neither of these things is hign on the life threatening, very important scale but it is very easy to let yourself start feeling very miserable when little-ish things stack up. It just reminds me of two things. One, that God does not promise a stress free easy life, that is not what being a Christian is. Secondly that He is my source of hope and life and joy, not what happens around me. Nothing that happens to me in this life changes who He is and who I am in relation to Christ. Nothing can separate me from the Love of God that is in Christ Jesus. (Romans 8:39).

Sorry for the slightly depressing post and lack of posting recently. I have found myself so busy recently at home and with the extra duties of stand in Cell Group Leader at church that my mind has not be inspired to write much. I hope that changes soon and that life calms down.

PS: 32 days till Christmas!!!!!

First of all, who said men don't have emotions?
Second of all, what church do you go to? My church has the cell model in it too and I didn't know it was common among other churches.

Michaela, welcome to my blog. A link to my church and its affiliations can be found on the left hand side of my blog. Cell church is quite common in the uk among churches that belong to New Frontiers, Pioneer and some others.

The title of my blog refers to a misconception among some females that men cannot express their emotions. Somewhere in my archive is a post on why I changed the name to what it is now.

I took a look at your blog and your photos are very good.

Ah, the UK. I got to a church in Canada so I have no idea what churches are like all the way across the Atlantic Ocean.

Haha. That's funny because I have a lot of good Christian friends who are guys and they are so expressive with their emotions. I think that when guys are in love with Jesus it gets easier to express your feelings. Am I right?

P.S. Thanks :D
