I shall call her Samaritan, not cos she’s an enemy but cos I should learn to love her.

Mercy & Justice

Read something interesting in Our Daily Bread today – mercy doesn’t mean lack of accountability and pursuing justice doesn’t mean retributive revenge.


Someone told someone who shared with me a long time ago that, when you put God first, everything else will fall in place. This wasn’t a statement to comfort in difficult times but a reminder, a warning, in good times. Hearing the different trials and thanksgiving various people experienced in 2018, I could at times […]


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 […]
