One of my favorite quotes. This quote truly depicts the journey of life & the crux we often find ourselves in. The fears that can suddenly surround a not so great event & turn it into an only event on our lives. When we think about our present troubles we are convinced they have consumed us, so much in times we cannot see the good in all the trouble. Because ….there is good in all of our troubles.  

Can we really discuss this? Can we grapple for a second that there is good in every trouble, in every circumstance, in every battle? If we plant the word of God into our hearts we must believe this one statement. We have all read or have heard at one point about how God works everything together for good, for His glory, for our work in progress perfecting perfection of lives. But how can we see this whole truth while we are in the pit? 

Simple. Just kidding it’s not. Haha I had you there for a second. You were probably thinking I was going to drop some super theological knowledge on you but the fact of the matter(s) is faith is a very tricky thing to master. This is why we practice it daily to build up our faith muscles so to say. But we rest in this truth. That before the foundation of the world was laid God intimately knew us. 


Think for a second with me in this context, all the troubles we face, will face, have faced God intimately knew. Which means He sees all the good that will come from them because He works everything perfectly together yesterday today and tomorrow. Intricately working is our God for our futures. Intricately loving is our God before we even existed   Imagine the love poured out for us. Imagine the love BEING poured out for us. Leaving behind the troubles for an unimaginable “ahead” with God. I can say thank you for that. Twice.

My first honest attempt at painting in Photoshop.  Doesn’t quite look like Emma Watson, but I’m happy with the result.  Here’s a work in progress gif.
I was inspired looking at celebrity portrait photographs by Martin Schoeller.

Yes! Amazing work I say

Scientists discover most relaxing tune ever

Sound therapists and Manchester band Marconi Union compiled the song. Scientists played it to 40 women and found it to be more effective at helping them relax than songs by Enya, Mozart and Coldplay.

Weightless works by using specific rhythms, tones, frequencies and intervals to relax the listener. A continuous rhythm of 60 BPM causes the brainwaves and heart rate to synchronise with the rhythm: a process known as ‘entrainment’. Low underlying bass tones relax the listener and a low whooshing sound with a trance-like quality takes the listener into an even deeper state of calm.

Dr David Lewis, one of the UK’s leading stress specialists said: “‘Weightless’ induced the greatest relaxation – higher than any of the other music tested. Brain imaging studies have shown that music works at a very deep level within the brain, stimulating not only those regions responsible for processing sound but also ones associated with emotions.”

The study - commissioned by bubble bath and shower gel firm Radox Spa - found the song was even more relaxing than a massage, walk or cup of tea. So relaxing is the tune, apparently, that people are being Rex advised against listening to it while driving.

The top 10 most relaxing tunes were: 1. Marconi Union - Weightless 2. Airstream - Electra 3. DJ Shah - Mellomaniac (Chill Out Mix) 4. Enya - Watermark 5. Coldplay - Strawberry Swing 6. Barcelona - Please Don’t Go 7. All Saints - Pure Shores 8. AdelevSomeone Like You 9. Mozart - Canzonetta Sull’aria 10. Cafe Del Mar - We Can Fly
