We are all in this together!

Hey guys,

The past couple of weeks we have been looking at the world and feeling like we are watching a movie – the deaths, the lock-downs, the uncertainty, the fear. For me, this has given me time to reflect and question the purpose of life. I mean one day life is normal, the next  day we are working from home and at first  it feels so unreal – the more news we receive the harder reality hits, and it is no longer interesting but worrying and scary.

The world is at a standstill, and for the first time (at least as per my memory) we all understand each other’s struggles as we are all facing the same thing to some extent.

I have watched so many interviews, from experts – both qualified and self-proclaimed and appreciated what acts of service means as shown by medical professionals globally. They are giving their all to fight this virus and I pray for their strength, wisdom and peace of mind.

 Last week, someone in a group I am in questioned why churches are closing their doors, and I just realized that church is not a building. We have to pray where we are, because God is not restricted to the walls of our churches – we meet to fellowship and worship communally but God is not stationed in church – He is omnipresent. We need to set an example and follow and obey our leaders, Romans 13: 1-7:

Verse 1 “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.”

Let us pray for those in the front line, ask God to give them what they need to help us in this situation.

Pray with wisdom, but above all pray with faith.

Mark 11:22

“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

Serving your Season!

A few Sundays ago, we were in church, and I noticed how attending church has changed for me. We get to church, attend the praise, and worship session (thank the Lord our daughter loves music), and sit through the next sessions, a few minutes of the sermon and she wants to

Can I be independent in marriage?

A friend of mine asked me that question the other day. And this is what I told her: Being independent means “not depending on another for livelihood or subsistence”. When I look at the vows we make, the beginning of marriage takes away our independence. However, what varies throughout marriage is

Trusting God is a Narrow Path…

“But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it”. Matthew 7:14 When I think about a narrow road, I imagine that the person using that road must be sure that that is the road they want to take. Because it is
