Clingy

I died. Got revived. And I woke up a different person. Scarred. Despairing. Looking forward to His second coming.   If I wasn’t drowning, I wouldn’t cling on so hard.

Surrender

Today I read that ‘surrender’ is a battle term. And I am battling a lot of things. My fears, my doubts, my inadequacies, my self-worth. And I realise it’s harder to surrender to God one’s disappointments and doubts than to surrender one’s joy and dreams. At least it is for me. I think it’s logical […]
