Pain: The Builder

Pain will make you who you are. It can either make you bitter or it will make you better. Nobody likes going through trying times. We all would happily click the "skip" button if life gave us the option. But looking back on things, I now see how God has shaped me during my most... Continue Reading →


He is Risen |Happy Resurrection day

Calm amidst the storm. Stillness during unrest. A quiet mind despite shrieking thoughts. Strength while crumbled on the ground. Boldness in the face of fear. Ability to trust Your word despite the odds. Rejoicing while breaking. That's what I believe your peace feels like. "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do... Continue Reading →

Give thanks | Blessed Good Friday

I remember my pastor sharing this word a couple of years ago and it has stayed with me all this time. Notice how the scripture says, "And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” (Luke 22:19) Wow! The... Continue Reading →

In a previous post, I shared the scripture from 1 Samuel 15:22, "But Samuel replied: “Does the LORD... Continue Reading →

Older, not sure about wiser

This time, last year I was in Nagpur. I thought my life was heading in one direction when it was actually heading in another. I was not prepared for what was to come next. Navigating uncharted waters is always overwhelming. That fear of uncertainty rests in the bottom of your stomach. I can now see... Continue Reading →


"But Samuel replied: "Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the LORD? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams." - 1 Samuel 15:22 Obedience doesn't come easy. And it does require sacrifice. Sacrifice of what you think you know....
