Learning to say no

Tell us about your style:

Fashion isn’t my forte and my style is definitely a mishmash, but I do love anything colourful, even if it doesn’t necessarily ‘go’. My must-haves are a pair of gold hoops, a baggy pastel jumper and literally anything @lucyandyak

What are you doing right now:

I’m on my exchange year studying in Tokyo and feasting on sushi to my heart’s content.


What worship song do you have on repeat?:

I am in no way perfect, nor is my faith, so if I am honest I haven’t been the best at listening to worship recently, never mind having anything on repeat, but when I have dipped in I’ve gravitated to some of the oldies I grew up with like “Mighty to Save”. My favourite of all time is “We Dance” by Steffany Gretzinger – an instant tearjerker.

We’d love to hear something transformational God has done in your life:

Last year was a year of God teaching me to find my worth in Him. This year He has been challenging me not only to know my worth; but to act in alignment with it in my everyday life. Such as learning to be kinder to myself, getting better at saying ‘no’ to things which don’t line up with my priorities and having more confidence to chase the dreams He has placed in my heart. He has been reassuring me that it is okay that I don’t always feel like I can keep up with the speedy machine of life and take things at the pace that He has graced me for in this season. I can rest and trust in the fact it is Him that will get me wherever I need to be. This has given me so much more freedom to slow down and enjoy the little adventures each day brings.
