Distant and angry at God…..finally hope creeps in

I have not been in the mood to write for what seems like forever, which is ironic because writing, for me is an opportunity to release some of the hurt, frustrations etc that I have internalised and stewed over day after day. During rocky times, my desire and interest in a lot of things just…

A moment of Spontaneous Reflection

One thing I am noticing is the need for validation from people regardless of whether we are close or strangers. This is not something new but it is something that I have momentarily succeeded in suppressing but ultimately failed to conquer over the years. God, thank You for making this issue increasingly evident to the…

Slipping and Falling

When you slip and fall down your first instinct is to pick yourself up and brush off any trace of the embarrassing incident. In regards to the times when we slip up and fall short of the standards that our Heavenly Father set for us, our first instinct, well for me, is to run. To…

Distractions

Before I knew it, I was 3 vlogs deep, with the hot water running as I only planned to play the song whilst having a shower. Then came the light bulb moment💡: I paused the video and said “wait a minute what did I actually come on here to do?”

A No from God doesn’t always suck

I struggled with viewing God as more than an authority figure. I do not know where this perception originated from, possibly from growing up where not going to church was not an option, but it has been a stronghold. It pigeonholed my view of God and it is still something I struggle with today, which…

An Antigua State of Mind

A mash up of Don’t Rock The Boat, Baby by The Hues Corporation and Don’t Worry Be Happy by Bobby McFerrin is what comes to mind when I think of Philippians 4:6-7.

Getting out of bed

It is currently 5pm. (by the time this post is published, it will be later)

I got out of bed over an hour ago. Binge watched NCIS from 6:30am, was in and out of sleep until I got up.

Why Can’t I Trust Jesus?

I am in a crisis.

A number of things in my life look dead and hopeless. My lake seems to be filled with rotten fish at the moment.

My family – rotten tilapia.

My job search – rotten tuna.

My relationships – semi-rotting sardines.

Pray for Donald Trump

All eyes are on the West, specially the USA. Even the country’s frenemy, Russia is looking to the West at the extraordinary event that has unfolded. Extraordinary in that no one could actually believe that a reality TV show host has managed to become President of the USA. Especially on the heels of a political…

Through It All

Here is a powerful testimony of God’s Touch when He elects you to serve in His Kingdom, for the glory of His Name. It is easy to feel purposeless even with a job title, marital title, degree, friends and a family where you are known as brother/sister/auntie/uncle etc. We tend to connect our purpose to…

Why the long face?

When I think of the hardships in my life, past and present, it is human nature to think “why me?” “Why is my life so hard?”
