I’ve been on a book by A.W. Tozer for a week now, it’s actually a compendium of some of his teachings while he was alive. There’s no way we wouldn’t have thought him archaic, rigid or like most people like to say today, ‘radical’, because his teachings are concentrated and honestly don’t have some of … Continue reading E for Effort
I woke up this morning thinking “this could’ve gone any other way”. I had woken up with a knowing from the Holy Spirit to take something to God in prayer. Something quite mundane I’d say. When He brought it to my mind, I remember thinking “how wicked of me to think I could do this … Continue reading Better off absent?
A little over a month ago, on my way to work, I searched for my earpiece and couldn’t find it. I was agitated because I was late and I needed it because it is part of my morning routine to listen to messages on my commute to work. Running out of time and searching frantically … Continue reading No excuse
I was reading about how Rachael asked Jacob to sleep with her servant in a bid to “raise a family through her”, since she herself couldn’t conceive.

For me, this year has been a ‘soldiering on’ year, many people might read that and think “hmm, isn’t that every year?”, but Nahh, for me, this year was that year that amidst all obstacles I just woke up every morning and I said “oh well, we have to keep moving”. So amidst the waiting, … Continue reading Keep moving
A few weeks ago I was crossing the road with my friend, I didn’t know when I started shouting “please hold my hand”. She was puzzled and told me to calm down that she was watching too. I didn’t doubt anything of what she said, it was when we got to the other side of … Continue reading Free
I rushed from a meeting on Sunday evening to join another online. As soon as I joined, I heard someone say “Rubie please take the minutes for the meeting”. I was tired from the previous meeting and I was late to this one so I had several resisting thoughts that were about to be vocalised … Continue reading Roller coaster
I sat through a 15 minutes prayer session last Sunday with some members of my church and the person leading us to pray led us using Matthew 5:14-15 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a … Continue reading Building blocks
When my dad suffered a stroke in 2016, while he was in a coma after his surgery, I remember my mum having several meetings with the neurosurgeons and cardiologists so often. We were already on edge due to the nature of the situation so whenever I spoke to her, I’d always ask what the doctors … Continue reading New realities
I grew up with two older sisters, I got away with a lot because of it. I didn’t learn to take responsibility very early because either of my older sisters was always present and they were the ones charged with responsibilities, I just had to do what they said. I got so used to it, … Continue reading We’re here.
