Being His instrument

Writing about the things I do isn’t easy. Honestly, I tiptoe alot to keep my self from sounding like chicken little; that is, a small insignificant nobody who everyone thinks is just scared and crazy. 
I’m sure some people may color me as a religious nut who is using a book to explain the things… The post Being His instrument appeared first on BayArt.

Are you sober 

I started writing a little over a year ago. About six months into it, I began to feel I was headed in the wrong direction. So, I stopped writing. Instead I read the entire Holy Bible cover-to-cover.I grew up in the church and I read a lot of the scriptures and many of the books… The post Are you sober  appeared first on BayArt.

Thrive 

I have learned that gratitude plays a major role in happiness. No matter the season or circumstance, I have made it a point to always say thank you. Try it out: when someone is rude to you smile, be kind, and then thank God for the experience. Then ask Him to use it for His glory.…

Sustained 

Since I’m not a fan of engaging in trivial conquests like reinventing the wheel, I’d like to take an ancient approach to a seemingly novice affliction (anxiety). Here’s some pearls of wisdom “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.”‭‭ (Ecclesiastes‬ ‭1:9‬)…

Proof

In a discussion, my good friend says to me: “If only God performed miracles as He did in the scriptures then people would believe.” I nearly fell out of my chair after hearing such a remark. I went on to prove that Jesus, in fact, is STILL in the miracle performing business. I found myself…

Transformed 

A few months ago, I felt as though something was taking me over. It’s as if a small fire was ignited inside of me. Now it has spread to every part of who I am. It’s so severe, that if my words were to materialize, fire would come from my mouth. I didn’t understand it,…

Self Challenging – A lifestyle choice

Self Challenging – A lifestyle choice

Born into a poor family – today in the UK we would have been described as “existing”. This whole concept reflects how times have changed. Post WW2 the UK state has taken on a more protective role, setting limits and creating norms for society. It became clear to me at an early age that if…

Self-Harm: Punishing You by Hurting Me?

Self-Harm: Punishing You by Hurting Me?

When I was young, I was a “cutter,” meaning I frequently acted out my pain and frustration by cutting myself, carving into my own flesh with any sharp implements I could find.  It was one of those more disturbing symptoms of my distress, and one I could never adequately explain. Today I choose less obvious…
