As I left another day's work, I quickly snapped this photo. So beautiful, yet so tormented. A bit like every human being I've ever met. All fighting our own inner demons on some level. https://youtu.be/EI5jsa3D5xo I love this song for the hope it provides to people who (like me) once deviated from their path. I … Continue reading Prodigal
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.
I think we often don’t realize the impact that we can make on the people we meet or the surrounding we are in.

Do you know who Corrie ten Boom was? An inspiring human being who was willing to sacrifice her life for others. Although spending time in a concentration camp, Corrie ten Boom was full of faith. And hope! This quote has greater meaning coming from someone who suffered so greatly. Can you imagine the terror of … Continue reading 3 Day Quote Challenge Day 3
What does it mean to follow? We follow bloggers on wordpress. We follow people on instagram. We follow pages on Facebook. In the real world outside social media following someone is downright creepy and at times illegal these days. But on these platforms we encourage it and welcome followers with open arms! On Sunday the … Continue reading What does “follow me” mean to you?
A story of how I came back to God. My husband and I met at the pub in 2004. I'd always been a "Christian" but at that stage in my life I was rebelling. Rebelling against my parents and attempting to conform into something "cooler" than myself. This rebellion actually started years earlier. Around the … Continue reading Grace wins.
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”.
“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…
