Set your sights in 2020

Sight is a gift. (Ask anyone who doesn't have theirs and they will tell you so). To be able to see is something that we take for granted every single day. But there is a difference between having sight and seeing. You have no doubt heard the term 20/20 vision a few times already this… Continue reading Set your sights in 2020

He who holds the stars

Are you a perennial planner? A self confessed striver? Busily plotting your life to the nth degree then panicking when things take a detour? Yup me too.

And yet they don't tell you that its the most heart wrenching, headache inducing, life changing challenge that you will ever… Continue reading Testing the barriers

Learn the unforced rhythm of grace

  The words appeared to jump off the page straight into my heart. The impact was so physically felt that I had to sit down as I steadied myself for the realisation that I am HIS. And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters 2 Corinthians 6:18 The truth… Continue reading Learn the unforced rhythm of grace
