Fighting for a clear desk!

Since lockdown started around a year and half ago, my desk has undergone several upgrades and transformations! But one thing that keeps happening, no matter how many new toys and gadgets I get for my work space, be it plastic plants, screen stands, candles or drawers…the desk inevitably gets messy. Ideally, I would start work…

The Reading Wishlist

The truth is I have too many books on my reading Wishlist, and given the rate at which I add more on, it is becoming increasingly unlikely that I will ever get round to completing it. At one point, I split my Wishlist into fictional and non-fiction. It is ridiculous! Furthermore, there are some books…

What is the Leadership Mandate?

Hebrews 13:7 and 8 give us a mandate for all Christians in regards to their relationship with their leaders. “Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you.

Meeting God in the Evenings

I am a morning person, and as such, I meet with God deliberately and patiently in the mornings. It’s part of my decision to give God the ‘best’ I have. Of course, as a Christian I have the liberty to enjoy constant communion with God throughout the day. I know that He is with me…

What disturbs you?

One of the things I have found is that God likes to disrupt areas of my life where I am not trusting Him completely. Be that in my work, relationships, hobbies or even in my spirituality and religion. It is so easy to fall into the trap of (attempting to) “put God in a box”.…
