Forgive them Father

Often we hear messages about forgiving others. People who have wronged us, people who cut us off in traffic, our ex-partners, our bosses… The list goes on. However, we go to church, shine our shoes, and walk tall, feeling good that we don't sin. We don't offend. When Jesus said, “Now go and sin no... Continue Reading →

Never Meant to Be

The fear and dread of you will fall on all the beasts of the earth, and on all the birds in the sky, on every creature that moves along the ground, and on all the fish in the sea; they are given into your hands. Everything that lives and moves about will be food for... Continue Reading →

A Child Is Born

Christmas time is a time of peace and unity. It's the time of year we forgive and forget old transgressions and spend time with loved ones. Although we have our own traditions and beliefs, Christmas leaves us wondering what the true meaning of Christmas is... For the record, it's not Jesus' birthday. The 25th of... Continue Reading →

Everybody Sleeps

Years ago, it feels like forever now, I wasn't the kind person I am now. I was quite opposite. I did unsavoury things for unsavoury people, and I had a reputation of being very self destructive and for being afraid of no one. People would ask me how I could possibly be so unafraid despite...

Grace

I never understood what grace was until now; and I've been going to church for 11 years. I was a bad person before I was saved. I know that we all think that, but when I share my testimony the usual reaction is shock and rejection. On occassions I had been removed from leadership and... Continue Reading →

A hole in the head

We often hear about biblical heroes doing amazing deeds. Performing miracles, saving nations, changing the hearts of kings. However there's one story that sticks out to me more than any other. About someone so fragile destroying a powerful enemy and saving an entire nation inchained. No it wasn't David. It wasn't any other man mentioned... Continue Reading →
