A space for you and me…

In this space, I share everything that God asks me to. But think outside of the box with me–if you’re looking for think pieces head over to the Articles category. Short stories? Head to the Short Stories category. If it’s specifically about my walk with JESUS, you want to make your bed in My JESUS diary. Poems, prayers, any way you turn, you’re sure to meet the TRUTH. ✨

  • Can I be flogged for the Name?

    Can I be flogged for the Name?

    Somehow, I cannot wrap my head around it. Entry #0000004 Today as I studied Acts, I came upon the part where the apostles rejoiced that they were flogged and counted worthy to be treated shamefully on behalf of the Name (Acts 5:40-41). I paused. Flogging? Flog me? I have read about persecution in the Bible…

    So I started working out…

    I thought I could do all things until I had to do 50 sit-ups. Entry #0000002 *Chill, my clown makeup has got to be around here somewhere* I started towards the end of October. I was pumped up but despite my ‘want’ for consistency, I’ve only worked out a little above 10 days (ok fine,…

    I should not go back to bed

    5 out of 7 days a week, I want to stop and go back to bed. Entry #0000001 That’s how I feel when things do not go according to schedule and here, I’m referring to an actual schedule.I have a ‘strict’ list of things to do each day and their time slots. However, things do…

    “Faith cometh by hearing” but so does fear…

    These days, there seems to be a plague of bad news. Every second, something bad is happening. I’m sure good things happen too but somehow, the bad news take the centre stage, snaking its way into our ears and consequently our hearts, influencing our decisions covertly and overtly.

  • How long can you stay high?

    How long can you stay high?

    First, let’s pretend that we both have the same notion of “highness” in our heads, yes? Second, let’s pretend again that you’re not here to hear another of my drunk tales, okay? Disclaimer: You will not agree with everything you’re about to read, and that is not okay. Have you ever been high? What gets…
