So You’re A Mary

When I was back in university I was part of a girl group called Temple. We would come together once a week to learn and just love on one another. We used to have get-togethers and sleepovers, it was just a safe place. A few girls wanting to love and please Jesus and I learned…

FIGHTER!!!

Like anyone else I have had my fair share of unfair moments. From being bullied, treated unfairly, teased and called names because I was different. You know how it is when something happens to you and you feel like you are not the same person you used to be. The naïve childlike person is either…

Ain’t No Competition

Haha! Oh am i going to get hammered for this one or what! Because this is the opposite of whats happening. Everything now feels like a competition. What she wore, where they went, where they live, what he does for a living, what he drives, where she went to for fun, how much they can spend,…

Helpless…Finding Fulfillment

Erica. That’s my name. Since I was old enough to hear I have been told how beautiful my name is and how it suits me. And yes, I let it go to my head. Since I was 10 I knew exactly what I wanted to be- happy. I just hadn’t figured out how I was…

The Birds Outside My Window

About three years ago my family and i moved to a new house. Finally! I had been looking forward to the move for two whole years! I was out of my mind excited but what i didn’t consider was what it meant to move from a house we had lived in for several years. First…

The One About Custard

Or let’s just call it “How much do you want it”. So its 2am and i’m in my room having my personal bible study when i realized that i was hungry. What could there possibly be to eat at this hour? Earlier on in the day my mom bought custard which gave me mixed feelings…

For 5 Minutes…

“Take care of yourself” he said… “Can’t pour from an empty glass” She said “Do what makes you happy, you are your first priority” In a way i agree, in a way i don’t. “The bible says that we should love our neighbors like ourselves, that means we have to first love ourselves before we…

White Collar Guy

4 WEEKS AWOL

So you may or may not have noticed (i really hope you did notice) that i have been off for say four weeks. I had a three week compulsory camp to start off my national service year. I had planned to leave you with two posts- “White Collar Guy” and just telling you where i…

Judgmental Much?

“God has a purpose and plan for everyone!” “God can use anyone!” “No one is too far off track to return to God!” “Everyone has a place in Christ!” I have heard these over and over and over. If i were getting paid to hear it i would be doing pretty well for someone my…

Speaking Christianese II

“I cannot believe this is happening to me! I did everything right.”     “Don’t worry just count it all joy. it will work for your good” “…he lost his sister. She went in for the surgery and that was it. I cannot believe it, she didn’t wake up!”    “Its okay. Look on the…

Speaking Christianese

“How are you?”      “I’m fine” “How’s the business going?”    “Well…the Lord is helping us” It’s not even a church thing anymore even non-Christians do it, especially yours truly. “How are you?” “Are you okay?” “Do you need some help?”, “I’m okay” “I’m fine” is my go-to response for anything, even when its…
