Order my footsteps, direct my paths
I’ve been praying this prayer, “order my footsteps, direct my paths, I will not go where You do not lead, outside of your will, there’s nothing I want and in your will, there’s nothing I fear”. God has been so good, and He is so willing to lead us, I’ve been doing some work with Amnesty International and I just got called back for an interview with Reprieve...

God the Father
Finished reading “The Return of The Prodigal Son” by Henri Nouwen, if I could review it in a few short words, I would just say that it’s changed my life. So yeah, the posts inspired by that parable are as a result of me reading that the last few days. So encouraged by the message of the book and one thing that really stood out to me is yes, we’re all prodigals, because all...

You are a part of God's plan for others
I think it’s pretty easy to forget that there is a reason that we’re not just sent straight to heaven after we get saved. We’re a part of God’s plan, the church is God’s action plan for this world. When we pray, we actively partner with God in carrying out His agenda, His will on earth. When we love, we partner with God, when we give sacrificially for the good of...

“I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born,” says the Lord.” -Isaiah 66:9
Joy is not found in seeking your own pleasure. Joy is not found in another human being. Joy is walking with God and living your life in total surrender to Him. Joy is harmony with God. Joy is saying yes to the age-old command of “take up your cross, and follow me”.

forgiveness-and-stuff: We have such a misconstrued idea of what love is. Despite popular belief, the words love and acceptance are not interchangeable. We are called to love. We are not called to quietly accept sin. “I love you” is not the same as “I accept you”. I don’t want someone to quietly accept my brokenness. I want someone to love me enough to correct me when I am wrong, help pick me...
