I have been deeply encouraged this past month in my walk with the Lord and in trusting where he has placed me. I have been feeling discontent for a long time now, I felt like I was going nowhere and was achieving nothing. This has been my constant prayer to the Lord, I wanted to understand why nothing seemed to be working out. I lay … Continue reading Wrapping up July (A Testimony of the past few months)
An important lesson to always know and embrace is that God is able to move within every situation. Sometimes we can quickly confine God to place/s within our lives. Forgetting that God is not confined to a specific place but is with us through every situation, if we would choose to let him in. This week I want to take some time to look at … Continue reading Hope is not lost!
I want us to continue from the topic we looked at last week. Last week we looked at embracing who we have been called to be. This week I want us to look at what it means to live out our calling, in whatever area it may be. While we have been called to different areas, there are similar situations that will meet us. We … Continue reading Living out our calling (Embracing who we are, Part 2)
We may have been good; we may have been bad; ultimately, we are redeemed! This week may we take time to focus on stepping into who we have been called to be. For some of us, we may already feel we are there and for others, we feel that this is a journey we are still on. I want us to look at what it … Continue reading Embracing our calling. (The 100th post)
With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. (Matthew 19v26) Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its … Continue reading Building our life on a solid foundation
Welcome to July! I share a message that has been placed on my heart as we go into this new month. I pray it will bless your life as much as it has blessed mine. Let us not deny this season has been tough. There has been huge struggles and heartaches. Fears over jobs, finances, family, and friends. Uncertainty for our country and for the … Continue reading A heart of gratitude ( Through all seasons)

To finish off this series on injustice, I want to focus on the role of the oppressor. Especially in turning from the oppressor to someone who fights for the cause. This week we are going to focus on Paul, who we know as being an oppressor and persecutor of the newly emerging Christian faith. However, his life took on a complete transformation after a meeting … Continue reading Paul- From oppressor to fighter for the faith.
As we continue to look at the theme of fighting injustice; I want us to look at the story of Shadrach Meshach and Abednego and how they stood firm in their identity. The story takes place when the Israelites are in exile in Babylon. The King enforces a command in which everyone must bow to an image of gold that has been erected or they … Continue reading Holding on to your identity.
Throughout the past couple of weeks, we have seen many people rise up and fight injustice which is prevalent throughout our land. While we continue to stand together and fight for change, I would like to use this time to look at biblical figures who fought injustice. I hope it will be an encouragement for us all, wherever we may be in life, we all … Continue reading Our position is important!
