I buy way too many magazines. It dominates a good portion of myself bookshelf at home and I’m constantly browsing the racks in WhSmith’s and Tescos looking for my favourites.
What it seemed to lack though, were faith magazines. Magazines that built you up instead of tear you down. That are real and raw and point our eyes to Our Creator.
I know for sure, that I am not alone in this. It’s only recently in the last couple of years that I’ve actually been subscribing to more movements, online magazines, print magazines and blogs that women are creating to let us girls know we’re not alone. The struggle can be so real, but God is so much more capable than we could ever even understand.
This online magazine is the creation of a 21 year-old girl that just wanted a place to say what Jesus was putting on her heart. She is in no way perfect. She has messy parts, she has struggles and she doesn’t always feel like getting out of bed some days but one thing she is certain of is that God has wrecked, turned around and blown everything that she once thought that she knew, out of the water – so much so, that she just cannot let go of His powerful, forgiving, relentless love. Even on days where she can’t quite understand what’s going on, she’ll praise Him.
So, bring your struggles, bring your confused heart, your hurt soul, your unstable emotions to the foot of the cross. Let’s talk about our messy parts and direct our eyes to our Heavenly Father who loves you even at your lowest.
“If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance and relief for the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this?” – Esther 4:14
