A Faith Refined by Fire

To be completely honest, this message hasn’t come completely with ease to paper. It’s been a hard month, full of fatigue and not much else. But I believe it’s important in these seasons to keep sharing, to keep testifying and writing because if this is a space for honest devotion to God then this is […]

Resilience – A Poem

Resilience is defined as “the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness”. In my role as a nurse it is something that becomes a necessity in order to function well. Sometimes in our work, we are exposed to things that the general public would find quite confronting, and we are expected to continually function as […]

Forgiving, Faithful, Friends

Throughout my years here in Earth, I have learnt the importance of having great, loving friends. Friends, who share you dreams and passions, challenging them and encouraging them; who admire who you are and who you are becoming; Friends, that know how to have a fun time.

Given A Chance

I saw her standing at the gate filled with curiosity in her heart. She came over and sat down beside me, oblivious to the fact that I clearly had my headphones in a state of ‘do not disturb’. She sat, smiled and stared at me with wide eyes. Politely, I introduced myself after I figured […]

Should Have Gone To Specsavers: A look at our past

It is amazing how much ‘junk’ one carries through life unnecessarily. Junk that begins to cloud your memory and your thoughts; in the same way that wearing the wrong prescription glasses gives you a blurred outlook on the world. The more you try to focus, the more your brain hurts and your eyes strain. We […]

Trusting in the Silence

It is interesting the wave of chaos that comes with packing up your life into a bag and just leaving for six months. With moments like these, moving graciously in Gods timing is at times (in an understatement) Testing. I leave in two weeks to take part in a Discipleship Training school with youth organisation […]
