This is us

This is us.

Every race

Every language

Every age.

 

A multi-cultural

multi-faith

multi-generational place.

Some were born here,

Some far away.

Some want to go,

Some long to stay.

 

Boasting an elite degree

Or from the school of hard knocks.

Dressed in opera-finery

Or holey socks

We stand together

In this green country.

 

Hope, fear, anger, sorrow

Collide.

 

What happens next?

That’s down to what the politicians,

Businesses,

Media and

Ultimately what

We decide.

 

Will we let hatred run naked through the streets, high on fear?

Or kindness and love persevere?

 

I guess we’ll have to see.

 

So I ask you to stand

With me

Like brother

Like sister.

Not torn by differences

But together in unity.

 

Our United Kingdom.

In the mirror

I had a dream last night that I have had before, years ago.

I was looking at myself, feeling disappointed in what I looked like.Then I looked into a mirror and realised that in reality, I actually looked completely different. Almost unrecognisable as the same person.

I knew that the mirror was showing the truth, who I really was. My perception of myself had been wrong. It was only when I looked into the mirror that I realised I had been seeing lies. I had believed the lies until confronted with the undeniable reality.

I believe that there is someone who will read this who has been listening to lies about themself.  Maybe others have been telling you lies,  or perhaps you have listened to the untruth in your own head for too long.

I just want to say that the truth will set you free. Stop listening to the fiction,  and see the reality of who you are.

 

John 8:31-32

He said to the Jews who believed,”If you keep and obey my Word, then you are my followers for sure. You will know the truth and the truth will make you free.”
