HOW A NON-CHRISTIAN MADE JESUS ‘KNOWN’ TO ME

As a Christian, one of my primary beliefs is the Gospel as good news to be shared. I believe I am called to know Jesus and tell other people of Him. It's my job to make Him known. Growing up in the UK, most people had some idea (however skewed it is) of who Jesus…

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…

Not-so-happy Valentine’s day

So, are you one of those hopeless romantics that love Valentine's day, or are you a complete hater of love, flowers and floating babies that shoot arrows? The topic of Valentine's day is a funny one for me mainly because I don't think it is that big of a deal. It should be a day you…

‘Use your talents’ monologue

I wrote this monologue as part of a production at my church.     Talents. Gifts. Smarts. Forte. They all mean the excellence. The brilliance. The intelligence. Ingenuity. Of God.

Tye Tribbett – What Can I Do

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oe9qRXe9yAc Currently, Tye Tribbett is one of my favourite artists on this planet. I feel like I’m one of the last people to actually know about him, which is really strange because he’s actually been in the music industry for nearly 10 years and I’m literally just acknowledging him. Crazy. I've heard about him, obviously,…

I met young MP Chuka Umunna and I was inspired

So, when it comes to politics, I usually have no view. I don't really know a lot about it, although I am starting to learn. My mum is a committed member of the Labour Party. Now when I say committed, I mean committed. Like, she goes campaigning with her ‘crew’ on frosty Saturday mornings –…

Who do you think influences you more – your family or your friends?

So, I’d like to discuss the idea that nowadays friends and peers influence teenagers more than their families do. Is that true? And if so, why is that? I mean, surely the people who birthed you, looked after you and everything in that nature should be the people you look up to the most. I…
