Thursday's Thoughts

Be an example, no matter your age.

Following the topic of last week’s thoughts, here’s 1 Timothy 4,12:

Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.

“I am too young…”

“Alas, Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I do not know how to speak; I am too young.” (Jer 1:6)

Have you ever said that?

“I am too young…”

Too young to work, too young to say anything of importance, too young to help?

Let me tell you a story; let me prove to you that age doesn’t matter anything:

In August of 2010, the Ugandan Orphan Children’s Choir came to the church of young Mallory Fundora. She played with the children, hugged them, and grew fond of them. Continue reading ““I am too young…””

When I saw Erin’s (@gofontyourself) fun way to create beautiful notebooks, I knew I had to try it. And so I did this week! Continue reading “(Im)Perfect”

I’m back :)

So good to be back! It was an awesome time in England with my best friend, and we were able to see a lot of London as well as the town we were staying at; it was also very nice to hear English spoken by native speakers again. But now I’m glad to be able to sleep in my own bed again 😉

I can’t express how glad I am Jesus was with us: All in all, the journey went very smoothly, but twice there was a problem with the bus we had booked – but with the help of a lot of prayers, we survived those too 🙂

So now I have three days time – to unpack, prepare some new blog posts, pack again – and then it’s off to camp!

Focus on Jesus, not on your fear!

One late evening last week, I was overcome by fear. Deep, intense, irrational fear.

I didn’t dare turn off the lights and go to bed, so I sat in my room for one hour, trying to calm down. I put on some Christian music and randomly opened my bible in the Psalms. I ended up with reading Psalm 71 – and discovered that adding the first half of verse 1 and the last part of verse 3 results in a beautiful, single sentence:
