Please don’t tell me that starfish story again!

Thanks to the Scruffyvicar for this one, a good reminder of how our actions can have a ripple effect.

I used like the Star-fish story, you probably know the one? It is of a man seeing another man on beach which is covered in starfish drying out and dying in the heat of the sun. The man is throwing starfish into the sea. The other man laughs at this fellow, and says to him “there are thousands of star fish you can’t make difference to them all!” To which the guy replied by picking up another starfish and threw it into the sea saying “well, it made a difference to that one!”

It is good to be reminded that everyday acts of kindness can be life-transforming-blessing to other people, that the way we live our lives does speaks volumes and our words can hold life/hope/salvation.

Perfecting the zig-zag

The journey we have called life is never straight forward. I came across this post and felt the need to share it. Do you know what your calling is? By faith will you obey? I’m yet to discover mine. But I’m listening and waiting. Thanks to “The sun shineth again”.

The Sun Shineth again!

“By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going.” — Hebrews‬ ‭11:8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Life, as you may already know, is full of many uncertainties. Even those that live a well organized lifestyle will agree that there have been moments when life served them with the unexpected regardless of how much planning and preparation that was invested.

Everyday we experience a different level and degree of uncertainty, but I’m sure some will agree with me that the scariest of them all (the one that keeps you up late at night) is the uncertainty about the future; about your career; about your purpose in life.

To those who have found their purpose in life and are successfully living it; I applaud you.

To those who are still faced with uncertainties…

This morning replicated other mornings, rushed - go go go! When I dropped my children off at my mum's, my littlest little person was heartbroken. He cried and pleaded for his mummy. And my heart ached. I wanted to say yes, let's go home, mummy doesn't have to go. Instead I gave him another cuddle … Continue reading Breathe.
