It only takes a moment #blog

I think it’s clear to me.
That solitude calls the more
To help me walk closely to you
So that I remain in tune
With your heartbeat
So I don’t miss a thing.

A bend in the road…

What I didn’t know was that Daddy was working behind the scenes to find a solution to my travel to London. Expected monies had not come through so it would take a miracle to get funds for my next city journey. Well Daddy changed the narrative shortly after, when a miracle text message confirmed that there were some funds added to my account – God!!! He came through again. Thanks Daddy This time there were tears of joy.

Less is more …

Ever seen how more and more posters advertising a product are using more pictures than text? We take one look at the image and we are painting pictures in our mind of how life would look if we just had a taste, a part or the experience portrayed in colour and glam.

Phew!

Phew! A few crazy days with late nights at the office meant I was getting a little tired and needed a good night’s rest. I simply said ‘Lord you need to wake me up in time for the Schools session tomorrow” You see I have come to depend on Him for everything including being my…

I may have minor trust issues 

On occasion, during half-terms, when we’re staying at with my dad we would go to up north to church and east, up until they moved venues to make room for the Olympics I wouldn’t ever spot the youth. When they moved to the east, every time I was there, on my way to a seat, I…

I was taken away…

 I followed, heard the order, and went back down dis-heartened. Even now, I get that same feeling when he shouts at me, some things never change. That’s just one particularly bad memory in the otherwise lovely little house. I had some good ones too. Around the same time, my dad and I used to watch the…

Completely normal and from a ‘broken home’ 

A teenager gave this to me to share… the realities of living in a chaotic home. Introduction: I was feeling boring, and useless – well depressed, just like most typical teenagers. Only, I’m just not a typical teenager. I know everyone says their different, special, unique. I wrestle with that a lot. How can everyone…

My world of money…

“Mum, Arin is hiding her money!” “She has not spent her money!” Comments like these or similar, remind me of how my siblings complained that I was saving my money whilst they were spending theirs. They even complained that I would support them with their spending theirs. At a time we were learning to negotiate,…

Who will speak for the children?

This story will not be balanced or accurate without mentioning its impact on the children  – the ones innocent in all this… One day my mum called my attention to the rehearsal and accounts of my 2 and a half year old daughter who sat under the table, relieving and recounting events between her parents….

Can you see a face mark?

I think to this day, I marvel at the different influences from culture, environment, background, media (tv and soaps), church and friendships that contribute to shape our thinking! I was so convinced I had to fix it or bear it! The friends that helped bring me out, spoke into my thinking. They challenged me to…

What was I thinking…?

Toxic thoughts. When you hear on a regular basis you are no good, the power of those words begin to manifest as you ‘meditate’ on them. They rob you of taking a chance at opportunities that are presented to you, they mistake care from someone for ‘they are trying to take advantage of me’ syndrome….
