I'm a Christian, a designer, and a gadget fan who lives in Cheltenham, UK.

This is my blog, a creative outlet to mess around and play with as well as a place that logs my thoughts and inspirations.

Nothing. Ever.

It’s inter­est­ing how things often crop up in the space of a cou­ple of weeks in the Chris­t­ian world. Two weeks ago at CU we had one of the guys from my church, Luke, come to speak. He spoke on rela­tion­ships, first about our one with God, then our friends and then with a “sig­nif­i­cant oth­er”. Now whilst that was very inter­est­ing the final part of his talk was a DVD. It was a Nooma one, specif­i­cal­ly num­ber 10 Lump.
Now the focus of this DVD is that God loves us/you/me. No mat­ter what.

“Noth­ing you do can ever change how much I Love you.”
Nooma 010 Lump

That line is said in the DVD a lot at the end, but the way it’s deliv­ered and the whole build up before it real­ly makes it hit home. Tonight in my cell group, as I was lead­ing and as I was in the plan­ning meet­ing on Tues­day, this phrase came up again, and at the moment its real­ly strik­ing me. It’s not the only thing, but that’s for anoth­er post, but it real­ly is hit­ting me. He, God, loves me. He loves me despite the fact I mess up. He loves me when I mess up every­day, when I do some­thing He does­n’t want me to do, he still loves me. I think that’s so awe­some!
But, and this is the best bit. It’s not just me He loves. He loves you, sat here read­ing this post. He loves the guy walk­ing his dog down the street. He loves every­one. But whats even cool­er, is that he wants to know the peo­ple he loves. He wants to be in a rela­tion­ship with you, and thats just sim­ply amaz­ing and I’m so think­ful for it.

  1. I love Nooma’s and the stuff Rob Bell does. He was just here in LA on Thurs­day night at UCLA, the same night I was lead­ing small group — I would have liked to see him speak.

  2. I’ve only seen that Nooma, but I’m think­ing of bor­row­ing them off a friend, and even buy­ing that one. It was fan­tas­tic, if his talks are as moving/powerful/touching as the DVD then I think I’d quite like to see him too.
