There’s no shame in being lost.

There’s no shame in being lost.

2019 has been a really weird year for me. I have so much to be grateful for but to call it an easy year would be simply false. For every moment of joy, there’s been a hardship, for every smile, there’s been a tear, for every moment of clarity, I’ve felt just as lost. but this isn’t a post of discontent, more one of realizing that, actually there’s no shame in being lost.

Be the change you want to see.

Be the change you want to see.

So in the last post, I went through King Kalidoscope’s latest album “Zeal” (check it out if you haven’t yet, the link will be at the end) and it got me thinking, what comes next? After we lose the cynicism, when we come back to that place of child-like faith, where do we go next? After getting back to that place of passion and, well, zeal, how do we keep pushing on in our everyday lives, in a way that shows the glory of the Lord?

Battling apathy.

Battling apathy.

Last week was my latest journey to the conference known as “New wine United”, and there’s a few things I need to mention before we get into today’s topic.

I wasn’t even supposed to be at United this year. God, however, had other plans – and to New wine I went. To be honest, I was actually really nervous about this year’s conference. It was the first year that I was basically the only person in my age group as most of my friends in that age group, for one reason or another, couldn’t come.

It was also the first year since attending United that I hadn’t camped with my original church. I instead went with the church I’ve been serving at for a number of years now. So it was really a strange year. Yet, I can say that it’s been a real blessing of a week honestly! Last bit of admin stuff before I get started properly; the rundown of the album “Zeal” by Kings Kaleidoscope should be up by the end of the month, I really want to make an effort to get back into investing in this page, something that I’ve been neglecting for the past year or so.

So it’s been a while since we’ve had a guest post, but my good friend Ian felt inspired to write a piece, and he’s very kindly offered to share it here! you can find a link to his page here Ardentword and a link to the song that inspired this piece here Singing like a bird-Benjamin James. Just before his post begins i wanted to say sorry for the lack of content this year, i should be posting more regularly in the coming weeks, life is just a bit full on right now! Anyway, enjoy this brilliantly written and insightful post, and may God bless you! Continue reading “Guest post: Like a Bird”

“Backwards” by Kings Kaleidoscope: a call to the disenchanted

“Backwards” by Kings Kaleidoscope: a call to the disenchanted

So this is something that’s become something of a tradition upon the release of a new Kings Kaleidoscope album/EP. And at the time of writing, “Zeal” has been out for one day, i may do a full run-through of my thoughts on the album as a whole at a later date, (spoiler, it’s going to be very positive) but today, for the first time in a while, i’ve felt the call to write. In this post, i’m going to be going to be picking apart the lyrics of one of my favourite songs on this album, “backwards” and explaining why this song has spoken to me in the way it has. Obviously, you should probably listen to “Backwards” before continuing on with this post, so here’s the link just in case!  (“Backwards”)  Continue reading ““Backwards” by Kings Kaleidoscope: a call to the disenchanted”

Loss,Lows/Highs,Hope.

Loss,Lows/Highs,Hope.

2018 has been a really strange year to be honest. But at this current moment, i’m not sure if that’s a good thing exactly. It’s been a “balanced” year for lack of a better term, for everything good, there’s been a hardship to go alongside it, for every step forward, there’s been at least one step back, leading me to the conclusion that i haven’t progressed in any way, despite the amount of evidence to the contrary of this conclusion.
