Right Now

My name is Rebekka, and I feel led to start a Blog.
Now i KNOW that sounds very religious and olden dayish, but before you stop reading, I would like to surprise you with two interesting facts;
1. Im not old, at all. I'm actually 16 :)
2. I DO feel like God is calling me to this!

Basically, I love writing, and I love God.

So, maybe I should explain this urge.

I had a small kind of revelation, a Sudden Insight. That there are all these small stories about my life, stories of mess ups and victories, stories of me finding God, getting closer to God, and realizing new things about him. I want to share these stories with you, so you can share in the mishaps and joys of my life and journey with my Father. My hope is that you could also get closer to Him and understand more about Him. I also wish that you will be encouraged to journey further with God. He is truly amazing and will become even more so if you just dare let him into your life. You won't regret it!

I have always fancied the idea of writing a big fat book series about my life, like the Little House on the Prairie series or the Anne of Green Gables series. But, well, I cant do that till there is more of my life, or I could, but it seems kind of partial, so I thought of rather just waiting till I'm older, write an autobiography then. But I just went to a brilliant camp (camp rev!) and the main point was that ' Don't Waste Right NOW

'How do I write this 'big story' with only a bit over 16 years of life?' I thought. 'How do I not waste my love for writing right now?'

And so came the thought of starting a blog.
And here it is :)
I hope you enjoy reading about my life as much as I enjoy living it!
And don't forget to live YOUR own life, and make the most of Right Now
xXx God Loves You

  1. Hi!

    I found your blog trough FB when I got lost to see my relatives. Your dad is my cousin, so this makes a second couseins, right? :)

    I am really interested to hear about my relatives thoughts about religion, and not just Seppo's or the "older" peoples thoughts. Those things I do know pretty well. But we have not seen each others for such a long time, so I have no actual idea about your yangsters lifes at all! (but not saying that I'm any kind of old fart)

    This is why I am quite happy that I did find your blog, it's nice to read different feelings and worlds of thoughts. My actual interest is because I am not in faith myself, in my family it was so different comparing to Seppo's and Enska's families. In their familys it was important thing that god was involved with every day life. Me, my mom and dad and sister have ever never went to church, excluding of course all the big family meetings or parties.

    I have thought would I be different if Seppo would be my dad, or would I be even more like me? it has been really natural choise for me not to believe in god, I had a choise - my mom and dad told me different ways of thinking, about god and of course evolution itself. I went to the rippileiri but also Prometeusleiri, where we talked about different religions. Still, after I turned to be 16, I devorced from church. It felt natural.

    Still I believe that the most important thing in life is, that you really are happy with yourself and life. Nothing else matters, I think? Sure you do also should respect other people and all, but if you feel good with yourself, you usually cant go wrong :)

    But if you wanna share thoughts, I would love to. And I think were gonna see at Mummis 90's party also!
