Poverty and Looking towards the Future.

One of the hardest realities in the world is poverty. Not only does it cripple the chance of people living a full life, it holds people back from what we would consider a ‘basic standard of living’. And the saddest reality, it that poverty isn’t caused by a lack of resources, but unfair distribution of the world’s […]

Try Not to Complain, Now There’s a Challenge

I set a goal. I set a goal in January to complain less. I caught myself out on a number of occasions leading up to the setting of the goal that surprised me. I never saw myself as a ‘complaining’ person – someone I had defined as an annoying, self-centred, selfish wannabe who argued about […]

The December Season

Blogging this year has opened my eyes to see and understand that life is a journey. I have had so many moments of peace and chaos. Of fear and bravery, of speaking with truth and wisdom in one moment, and then fighting to believe those same words are true in another moment. I have fought […]

There is Hope in the Valley

It is with great excitement I share with you another poem for November. It was many moons ago that I found myself filled with the Spirit of the Lord, reading through Ezekiel, compelled to write. I found myself, pen in hand, pouring out. A few moment later, this is what I read. If you’ve read […]

Preparing for Spring

It’s finally starting to warm up down here at the bottom of the globe (though even as I write this, sitting outside in the sunshine on the warm grass, tomorrow will be raining, cold and there won’t be any sunshine).

A Road Map In the Dark

To be honest, I wasn’t sure how I wanted to start this one. Usually I draw inspiration from my life when I decide what I am going to write. A Road Map in the Dark has been something that has been inspired by what I am reading in the Bible right now (the Torah, or, […]

What’s my life calling? / What if I don’t have a testimony?

As promised, this months message is all about the two questions above. This is a topic that I am passionate about, but also one that I’ve grown into in the last few years. If you’re anything like me, you’ve wondered these things because you’ve over-complicated what it means to be a follower of Christ. It […]

After a Year of Writing

Well here we are, 12 months into what I believed was just the right “next step”. It feels so long ago when I felt the stirring of the Father to start to share and to write regularly. Yet, at the same time, and as cliché as this sounds, it feels like only yesterday I was […]

Have a little Faith

Happy New Year! I know, it’s already at the end of the first month, (I cannot believe January has gone!) But all the same, here are some thoughts on Faith for the New Year. I’ve been reflecting lately about what Jesus says about having trouble in this world (see, John 16). He never promises us […]
