  • May 2014 Update on my life

    The clock seems to be ticking a lot faster than it used to at this stage in my life (although recently one of my clocks broke and it stayed on 2:45 for a really long time, how I wish life had stopped with it!). With each passing day I am getting closer and closer to […]

  • Denying Self
  • Really? Every Day?

    A few weekends ago I attended my Church camp where the theme just happened to be denying self and the theme verse was Luke 9:23 (ESV) And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross daily and follow me.” There’s a subtle difference between Luke 9:23 […]

  • Isaiah 53:5-6

    This verse has been going through my head for several days. It is a good reminder of what Christ did for us as sinners so that we could have a relationship with him. If you haven’t read it in a while then I encourage you to go through the crucifixion and resurrection story in John […]

  • YOLO – You Only Live Once

    “You only live once, you don’t get another shot at life so (insert statement here)” The acronym YOLO irritated me for a very long time. Whenever I saw it being used this was the typical idea that was given “You only live once, you don’t get another shot at life so do what you like […]

    When I was fourteen years old around the 20th of March 2011 (I don’t remember the exact date) I went for my weekly horse riding lesson. Little did I know that this particular lesson would change my life forever. Long story short: I had just mounted my horse when I fell off, landed on something […]

  • My 2013 in Review

    I’m having a little bit of trouble digesting the fact that it is 2014. It seems like yesterday I was the little girl on the left… And now, I have grown up into the (still little) girl on the right.   Looking back at my life I am so privileged to have done so much. […]

  • Doing a Quiet Time – Challenge

    I have asked you to make the decision to do a quiet time, showed you a method on how to do it, asked you to apply what you read and showed you a method on prayer. I would like to help you with one final step: a challenge to actually carry out your decision. For most people it takes a month to […]

  • Doing a Quiet Time – Prayer

    After making the decision to do a quiet time, learning the basics on how to do one and learning how to find an application we now get to prayer. Often when I pray I find myself spending 97% of the time praying for myself and my friends and 3% the other important things like praising God, confessing my sins and being […]

  • Doing a Quiet Time – Application

    Now that I’ve written about setting a New Year’s Resolution and knowing the basics on how to do a quiet time I would like to dig deeper into applying your daily scripture reading. “But be doers of the word and not just hearers only, deceiving yourselves” – James 1:22 Many times I have caught myself […]
