Happy Mother's Day! And if you're not yet a mother like me and you desire to be one in the future just smile awkwardly, say Amen and keep it moving (like I have been doing) :P. Mother's Day is a great time to reflect and show thanks to anyone who has shown you motherly love whether biological or otherwise. Because being a mother is more than just biology. I thought it would be cool to look at some mothers in the Bible and some lessons I got from them. Rebekah Genesis 25:28; Genesis 27:5-10 We...

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17 (NIV) Iron sharpens iron. If God is indeed our friend and our God, He should be able to sharpen us. Have you watched a video of a blacksmith beating iron into submission? The beating is not meant to cause pain or damage but rather to refine the object. Now, imagine that you are the iron and God is 'beating' you into submission. Painful, right? Thing is, we are not objects but beings with flesh and a heart that beats and...

Hey everyone, it's been a while but for good reason which will be revealed in a much later blog post. This one however has been stewing for a while and was inspired by a conversation that I had with a friend over how certain behaviours can affect relationships-platonic or otherwise. Family, love them or hate them (hopefully not) they are filled with different characters that provide us with lessons very early on in life. If utilised properly one can learn quite a bit about society as a whole...

Hey everyone, I hope you're all well? This is kind of an 'unofficial' part two of my last post. I want to focus more on the mind this time round. So, whilst I was in this 'in between' stage with God I found it really hard to sleep, like really hard. Try as I might sleep wouldn't come and if it did, It'd be around 4/5am. Needless to say I was running on empty. Various thoughts plagued my mind and I was constantly troubled. I was gripped with fear about the future which seemed to always be on my...

Happy Valentine's Day! It's an interesting day isn't it? Whilst we can all agree that it's been widely commercialised there's no denying that it manages to get most of us in our feelings-especially if you have no valentine. Why? I think it's because it's the one day that you are acutely aware that you are single hence this recent trend of it being known as 'singles awareness day'. Of course you may have been single the day before then and possibly the days to follow but theres just something...

So, we're in the last few hours of 2017 and my what a year it has been! I'd say that for me it has been a stabilising year; no fireworks but no downfalls either. I'm not complaining however because it was much needed after last year which was not the best for me. Below are some of the things I learnt. Honesty is always the best policy Really. It is. It does not matter how hard it may be to say it, if it is true and needed then it must be said. Delivery is of course important and one should...

Let's say you meet a nice guy who 'ticks all the boxes', somewhat. He's a Christian, just not a 'deep' one but at least he's a Christian so that'll suffice right? Wrong. Now, I am not saying that if you are not a Christian you do not have morals because that is just not true. There are some awesome individuals who are cool, lovely and nice who are also not Christians. My thing is it all depends on what you place value on. For some, having a generic understanding of Christ, observing the bible...

Hey everyone! How’s it going? I’m back again with another cautionary life tale. I’m writing this especially for the single Christian sisters as whilst I was not affected at all, I could easily imagine how someone else could be misled. It all started on a social media platform last year but I was not so enthused as for starters the person lived in another country. Communication was on and off and then this year it was a bit more consistent. I don’t know about you reading this but if a...

What does the word 'Omission' mean? A quick google search reveals the following; Someone or something that has been left out or excluded. There are a few other definitions but they all revolved around the same thing; leaving something/someone out. If you had asked me a week ago what does this mean I would have responded with a textbook response. Recently, however my eyes have been opened. A friend and I went to an event and met a person who was quite enthusiastic and shared details about an...

What does it really mean to guard your heart? What does it mean to build up walls?
