When life doesn’t make sense… excerpts from a new devotion coming soon

At one point or another, every human being will face obstacles and challenges in their lives, and usually in those moments, life ceases to make sense, or so it seems at least. It may present as a loss of a loved one, the loss of a marriage or long term relationship, career or other personal […]

Where is God?

When life ceases to make sense to our natural minds and we find ourselves at the intersection of pain and suffering, we begin to ask where God is. Our belief system seems to suggest that the presence of a problem implies the absence of God. For the Atheist and unbelieving person, it further strengthens the […]

Stand for Something

In a world where values are gradually eroding, I sometimes struggle to know what people’s worldview, ideologies or if you like, position are on basic/fundamental things such as faith, marriage, relationships, parenting, business, just to name a few.

My Domestic Abuse Alert

For the last week and a half, I have been thinking about a recent domestic abuse incident, particularly one in which a woman with two children was beaten and left dead by her husband.

If you’ve been around for some time, you would have discovered that as humans we thrive on being loved and loving others. We want to be loved by those closest to us and likewise, […]

The Power of Positive Friendships

If you answer yes to any of these questions, you are reading the right journal. You would think that misunderstanding is a pretty straightforward thing and that people can be made to […]
