What Faith Can Do

A friend of mine recently let me borrow the new Kutless album and it’s been playing in my car and on my iPod constantly for the last week or so.  There’s a few excellent songs on it but this one jumped out at me and really I guess because the lyrics fit the way the past few month have been for me.

Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes and make a new beginning
Anyone can feel the ache
You think it’s more than you can take
But you are stronger, stronger than you know
Don’t you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining

2010 marked the start of a new year and new decade for everyone but personally it started me being more determined to succeed and to rely on God for even the simplest things in my life.

I guess I’ve just got to keep facing the clouds to find my silver lining …


Why Do We Fall?

So … I had two interviews in the past two weeks and have so far heard back from one … regretting to inform me that again I haven’t been successful in my application. The other was a fortnight ago and so the phrase “No news is good news” is beginning to wear a little thin with me.

This is beginning to feel like a common theme and just as I begin to feel my confidence back-sliding I got an email from a fellow BB officer reminding me of a quote from Alfred in the film Batman Begins.

“And why do we fall, Master Bruce? So that we might better learn to pick ourselves up.”

I know it feels rubbish constantly getting negative feedback but it’s not the end of the world. We all learn fom our mistakes and I guess this is just moulding me into the right way of thinking or acting or whatever it is that’s not going right for me at the minute.

I may not have a job in the field that I want but I have a lot more to be thankful for … a God who knows what He’s doing with my life, a loving family, an amazing girlfriend, a faithful group of simply brilliant friends … the list goes on.

It’s time to pick myself up … pull myself together and get back in the race.
