Tom Petty: One of the Greats

Tom Petty // 1950 – 2017 💔

‘American Girl’ will forever be one of my favourite songs of all time — from its iconic intro, right through to the epic vocal/guitar solo at the end.

What a man!

PDC: #149 – ‘Toothless the Dragonite’

Really, really thankful for my mum and dad – for a whole lot of things – but feeling it especially this week because they got me a ‘Wacom’ drawing tablet for my bday!!! ☺️

Seemed fitting to christen it with a Pokémon drawing — and who better than the OG dragon: Dragonite!  I’ve got a LvL 100 one in my Pokémon Bank called ‘Toothless’, and he’s one of my absolute favourites (also got another one called ‘LeBron’!)

Hope you like the drawing — really enjoying getting to grips with the tablet! (:

(Featuring: #149 Dragonite🐲 + some flowers! 🌸🌺🌼)

Who said the road would be easy?

Found this old painting I did a good few years at ‘Imagine’ when I was tidying up my bedroom yesterday.  I’d totally forgotten about it! Guess it was the first time I really painted or drew just for my own enjoyment.

Seems like a lifetime ago.

The painting is pretty explicit in its theme: it’s about how the road might be difficult, but we’ll get there in the end…

A Letter from God…

fullsizeoutput_2073

 

My child,

I love you.

You don’t need to compare yourself to other people.  You are unique, unique for a reason.  I made you.

Your worth is not found in what you do, who you’re with, where you are, or how much that person likes you: it is found in who you are, and who your Father is.

Don’t believe the lie that it’s good to never feel happy: that is not my purpose.  I am the joy-giver, the River of Life.  I am hope.

Give away more than you get.

Don’t forget about your family.  They love you, and you are together for a reason.

You don’t have to do this alone.  I am here.

Trust me.

Don’t believe the lies the enemy puts on you: they don’t even make sense anyway.  Listen to my voice.  I am leading you to green pastures and quiet waters.

You can do all things with me by your side.  Don’t put limits on what I can do.  I made the world.  I made the universe.

Be who I made you, not the imitation of someone else.  Be you.

I love you.

I.  Love.  You.

‘September Ablaze’

“And in the last days, God declares, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. 

Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your old men will dream dreams. Your young men will see visions. 

In those days, I will pour out my Spirit even on servants – men and women alike. 

And I will cause wonders in the heavens and on the earth – blood and fire and columns of smoke…” (Joel‬ ‭2:28-30‬)

Spirit of the living God, burn bright in me: like a fire in my soul.  May I burn bright for You… 🔥🔥🔥

Soul Survivor Scotland

I’ve had such an awesome week down at Soul Survivor Scotland as a youth leader with WCC Youth.  They are such an incredible group of young people; it’s a constant privileged to get to hang out with them.

It was absolutely amazing to see 1,000+ young people meeting with God in a really powerful way, encountering his real love for them, and making brand new friendships with people from all across Scotland.

Really hope I can be a part of it all again next year!

Ps: here’s a wee lil’ sketch of our campsite… (:
