Let me tell you a story about myself. I had a heavy weight in my heart! I felt a strong burden and I couldn’t explain it. I felt sober, like I was sad and repentant about something but I didn’t know what it was. So I rushed into my room which was surprisingly empty and I climbed up my bunk and cried my eyes out. I cried and cried and cried till nothing could come out anymore. Continue reading MUSIC, MOVIES, LANGUAGE: What should a Christian Say, Listen To and Do?
If you have been a Christian for at least a day, I am sure you have heard the popular, clichéd phrase – It’s not by works!
Aha! That one phrase that answers all questions, queries and complaints. If you ask a sister why she decided to sleep over at her boyfriend’s house last weekend; she will say “it’s not by works so don’t judge me”. If you ask someone why they haven’t attended church in a while – it’s not by works. Ask someone why they are repeatedly not fasting – it’s not by works oo. Continue reading “Christian Works : Is it by works?”
Hi there! I haven’t posted anything on this blog for about 6 months now. I have been juggling work, study, ministry and personal life and I haven’t been doing very well at it but I am on my way! Also … Continue reading STOP! It’s Distracting You!
As a single person (by single I mean not in a relationship or courtship), I have always had one major prayer: the prayer of companionship. I always ask God to bring someone into my life, not just so I can say I have a boyfriend (and people can stop asking me questions) but because I genuinely desire the companionship. I have friends, very close friends but you know it’s not the same as having that person that is just for you (winks), that person you know has your back no matter what, that person whose problem is to make sure you don’t have any problems (haha) Continue reading On Being Alone
If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless. – James 1:26 (NLT)
As Christians we commonly know and follow biblical guidelines on most areas of our life; but how many of us knew there are guidelines to how we use our mouth and our speech? I for one knew there should be but I never actually took them to heart or seriously until one day when in the place of prayer I felt God convicting me about my speech. As much as it’s important we know when to speak and what to say; it’s also important we know when to be silent – there is a time to speak and a time to be silent (Ecc 3:17)

In July, my church announced a 10-day mid-year fast that would be 4 days – breaking with food, 3 days – break with fruit, 3 days – break with only water. I was involved in that fast and here is what I learnt from it.

But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! – John 15:7 (NLT)
Many times as Christians, we get hung up on whether something is God’s will for us or not; you hear people saying I want this but I don’t know whether its God’s will for me or Let’s say I pray for something and I didn’t get it, i immediately assume that maybe its not God’s will for me. Many times in making more serious decisions such as picking a spouse, choosing a job or deciding what career to go into we are held up at knowing whether something is the will of God or not. Continue reading “What is the will of God”
Have you ever wondered, how does God speak to us? I get asked a lot, does God still speak? Can God speak to me? How can I hear God? How do I know God is speaking to me?
Your own ears will hear him. Right behind you a voice will say, “This is the way you should go,” whether to the right or to the left. – Isaiah 30:21 (NLT)
3 days to the new year. Many of us spend this time looking over our goals for 2015, checking for what has been achieved and what hasn’t. However how many of us have taken time to list out the wonderful things God has done for us this year? Continue reading Forget Not
The Christian walk is commonly referred to as the Christian race and in a race we know that there are many contestants, 1 winner and 1 prize. We also would agree that some runners start preparing for the race years before the actual race. Some of us are just wearing the Christian Jersey and standing in the sidelines. You need to get in the game and win! Continue reading Get In The Game
