Kingdom work

When I go to work, I’m going to the Kingdom. I’m not working for the King, I’m working with the King. The Kingdom is not restrained to the walls of the Church. -Kris Vallotton Many days, I used to drag myself to work. But its not that I don’t love my jobs, for I do. Rather itsContinue reading “Kingdom work”

Regrets

Like all of us, I too have regrets in my past. Not meeting Jesus earlier. My behaviour in many situations. My response to several circumstances. The lack of love or compassion I failed to show many who crossed my path. How I have been as a daughter, sister, niece, granddaughter, cousin. Wife, mother. Friend, coworker,Continue reading “Regrets”

pace or pursuit

Is the pace at which I am doing God’s work destroying God’s work in me? Bill Hybels There are days where I feel like I can’t catch my breath. One thing after another gets crossed off my to-do list, until I collapse on the sofa at the end of the night and wonder where myContinue reading “pace or pursuit”

why’s

We don’t always take a close enough glimpse at one person in the Christmas story whom I can relate to the most. Because like me, Joseph appears to have wondered at the whys of Jesus. Why, Mary?

Coventry Carol

Lullay, Thou little tiny Child, By, by, lully, lullay. Lullay, Thou little tiny Child. By, by, lully, lullayb The days in which God determines Jesus was to arrive here on earth were tremulous ones. Great political unrest, overtaxing, long hard days forced to serve ‘landlords’ not of your choosing. Revolution was constantly simmering when itContinue reading “Coventry Carol”
