Drastic steps to growth

Sometimes getting to the next level, in whatever context, really requires you to do something drastic.  Something a little different from what you would normally do. They say foolishness is doing the same thing each time and expecting a different result. I am starting to really understand that. This year, 2017 and generally this academic…

Five Days of Tears and Restoration

I cried five days in a row. Not for anything bad, but just because I could not physically fathom how amazing God is. Last week, I went to Wales for the weekend, with my friends from my fellowship RY Sheffield. This wasn't a cheeky getaway, as much as we did have fun, it was a retreat.…

Nice guys and girls don’t win??

I've always wondered why people say nice guys (and girls) don't win. Why is that? Why do we believe that? Forget bag for life, I am a friend for life. I strongly value nice people. This is a post is a shoutout to you guys, keep doing you, boo! Please do not let anyone let…

God Worked Through His Deception

I wrote this post for Lively Stones and can be found here! I was reading Genesis 27:19-33, which is the story of how Jacob, with the help of his mother Rebekah, deceived his father, Isaac and stole his older brother Esau’s blessings. I considered the fact that Jacob actually used deception as a means to receiving…

It’s personal…

I wrote this a long time ago but I didn't post it for the very reason that it is personal. I do not worry as much now, which is why I am posting it now. But everything I say still applies. Respect my wishes. --- It's times like this that I strongly dislike having people…

Things that happened this year that I am thankful for – 2015 + video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-gn2k2N6_AI 2015 has been a whirlwind of highs and lows (mainly highs). This post is going to highlight some of the highs in a bid to be thankful to God for everything that has happened this year.  So, in no particular order; 2015 is the year I successfully completed my A Levels. This is a…

Another year older

It's my birthday! It has become quite a tradition to write a post on my birthday. I think birthdays are great opportunities to look over the many blessings we have in life, especially in the pasting year. New years are also a great time to do this. 2015 has been the best year of my…

The Addition and Subtraction of Christmas

Christmas time is definitely everyone’s favourite time of year, but I worry that people forget what the reason for this season is. This is because over the past few decades, we as a society have added things to Christmas and subtracted vital things from it. - Happy Holidays! I first noticed 'Happy Holidays' replacing Merry…

PRAY FOR PARIS, PRAY FOR HUMANITY

      My heart is really heavy, right now. There are so many things going on in the world that make me feel small, and useless and out of control. Yes, I know this is not about me but I want to be able to feel like I have done something to reduce the hurt…

Jehovah Jireh, My Provider

Guys, this is a really real, really raw post, because right now, in this very moment, I am feeling some really real, really raw feelings. It is days like this, moments like these that I begin to understand why they call God Jehovah Jireh! He is a provider. When you need something, He will supply…

Comparing yourself with others

When I was a little younger, I had officially come to grips with the idea that I am not as 'naturally pretty' as other girls. Where I got this idea from, I do not particularly know, but I do know that I believed it with all of my heart. In my young mind, some people…

The Restoration Plot pt 2

Two years ago, around this time of year, I wrote a blog post on Easter. I want to share it again, because sometimes we take Easter, and what it represents, for granted. He died, but now He’s alive. It’s a miracle. We are remembering all the pain Jesus took upon His shoulders. All the discomfort…
