Waiting on the Promise

The time preceding a big event is sometimes more exciting than the event itself; the planning, invitations, food, and decorations all struggling for our attention. The rush to make sure that everything goes perfect and that no one is forgotten. And of course life still goes on during special occasions, chores need doing and work… Continue reading Waiting on the Promise

New Beginnings

It is the beginning of a new school year. New experiences, new plans, and new goals to try to achieve. Most times whilst preparing for the latest, futuristic, contemporary thing, we can often lose focus of God. Sometimes we think that when we have everything figured out then we will ask God “to do His… Continue reading New Beginnings

Confidence

Confidence. What is confidence? According to Cambridge Dictionary, confidence is, "The quality of being certain of your abilities or of having trust in people, plans, or the future." That whole sentence is saying that confidence is basically trusting in someone or something. Why I'm talking about this is because girls around my age question themselves… Continue reading Confidence

Sands of Time

I stood ankle-deep in water by the shore. In the background, a boisterous group of children were swimming in the lagoon; happy.   I strolled along the shore underneath the overcast sky, each step I took was greeted by a rushing wave hasting to clear my tracks. I looked around, other than the rubbish scattered… Continue reading Sands of Time

Future

I don't know about you, but recently I have been thinking about my future a LOT. And I'm only 11! That's the thing that scares me most. The future is so uncertain, you never know what is going to happen in the next month, five days, even in the next hour. And we are a… Continue reading Future

Taking a piece of humble pie

If you are a middle child, like me, you would understand the things you would have to go through. Being bossed around by your older sibling, and being annoyed by your younger sibling. When you think about what they have done in the past, you may be thinking, "Well, I am better than them! I… Continue reading Taking a piece of humble pie

Trust In Christ Alone

This verse is one of the verses I have learnt in the past and strangely am remembering it now. The verse is talking about trust. Now, trust isn't all falling into someone's arms backwards. Trust is putting faith in Jesus to help you in your struggles, no matter what. Sometimes, I can just wander off… Continue reading Trust In Christ Alone

Seek God’s Kingdom

A little while ago, I decided that I should put God first and always read my Bible and pray every day. I thought that would be easy to keep and would be able to fit into my daily schedule. But it wasn't going as planned. As I made a start of it, I kept trying… Continue reading Seek God’s Kingdom

I’ll Do It Later

One a cloudy Saturday afternoon I was at home doing some laundry. 😒 If looks could kill, anyone who looked at me would faint! You see, that week, I hadn't really done my chore (laundry) very well so I had had been told to redo it. I tend to have a lot of things going… Continue reading I’ll Do It Later

The New Year

2020 was a uncertain year. One day you could go out as you please, do anything you want. The next moment there were lockdowns, self isolation, face masks and hand sanitiser. This time last year, we had no idea that a virus would start in China and spread to the whole world! How hard must… Continue reading The New Year
