This free gift doesn’t give me the cheap creeps

They love to say that the Gospel is free. Well, it is free. Like the free public clinic sitting at the corner of the street. Do they just mean the water? It is free; and the man handing out gospel tracts know it. It is free, but we don’t like free things too much. Buy…

I am Hole-ly but He loves me Wholly

My existence on earth has got plenty of holes (Sometimes black but mostly colourful). And everyday, the Lord takes time to fill in these empty crevices with His grace. It can be in the form of an undiscovered verse in the bible suddenly illuminating me, a song with lyrics that break my saddened spirit, or…

“I don’t have enough faith”

Doubt is something almost every person experiences at some point. – Philip Yancey, Faith and Doubt When I jumped off a 8-story cliff and tumbled into the choppy waters below, my faith, in that naked suspension of time, was entirely non-existent. How I managed to survive that rag-doll fall, I have no idea. I had no…

Don’t expect to be Treated Fairly in this Life

I remember feeling really terrible one anonymous day. It was so bad I couldn’t sleep all night. I felt like the whole world was somehow in it. ‘They’ say your loved ones have the greatest access to your heart. I think ‘they’ really knew what they were talking about. One can never get used to hurt –…

Life Insurance

I read this in an entry in Sarah Young’s book ‘Jesus Calling’ weeks ago, and it hasn’t left my mind since. Therein lies my hope and my assurance for life.

Overdose of Graces

Many say an overdose of grace is dangerous “It might lead people astray,” they say. But what i’ve been seeing about grace so far Is that it frees people to endless liberation It lights the hearts of people like shining stars They always mutter: “Too much mercy and compassion kills order,” But I’ll say there’s…

Colours Of God

Purple, blue, brown, green The colours of love aren’t always in shades of red Pink, orange, turquoise, grey Portrayed in Jesus’ words, back in his day Yellow, cyan, lilac, violet “Make up the heavens’ hues,” says a lover-pilot Even white or black, trace them back You’ll find It all first were birthed in his mind Colours…

Soap and Jesus

Today Reinhard Bonnke visited my church. He is a funny man, someone with traits similar to that of the jolly G.K Chesterton. He has that same uncanny ability to cook up spot-on and hilarious analogies in seconds, leaving the congregation in laughing fits… which we could never quite recover from. A funny, meek and wise…

Little Guardians of the Earth

We merely re-create what He first created. We’re the little guardians of his earth. I like that thought. If all credit of the created world had been given to us, we’d be so bloated up with pride we’d next have our commonest senses and empathy all blotted out, the inability to cope with inabilities, constantly…

God’s Mad & Unlikely Love

Mad, mad world When we think of God, we envision a god half a world away. At other times we strongly believe he’s closer than even our own heartbeat. Where can we find this God whom we long to see in the flesh? To experience, to feel, to touch, to understand? Can we find the…

every hurt, he knows

And if you have ever felt the slap of painful embarrassment, humiliation, disappointment, loss… of being not good enough, not polished enough… then let me bring into remembrance the cutting words of Nathanael’s disbelief when he found out the place Jesus grew up in –  “Out of Nazareth… can any good thing be?” he exclaimed in…

rest easy

Not care-less, nor care-full, but care-free in Him.
