Guest Post: A Letter To My Younger Self: How to Navigate Your 20’s.
The one ‘problem’ that comes up when a 31-year-old writes a letter to their younger self is an acute awareness that there isn’t much history to write about. The message would most likely only span a decade worth of life. However, that said, a decade is enough time to look back at and have enough to say.
Guest Post: Living a Godly Life with Borderline Personality Disorder
A psychiatrist diagnosed me with a major depressive disorder in October 2014, also known as clinical depression, after two agonizing years of living with it. In May 2015, I got diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD). Now, I can honestly say that God, in His abundant mercy and infinite wisdom, has since lifted the darkest clouds of depression from above me. However…
Guest Post: What is Christian Maturity?
Perhaps the most universal and noble desire for all Christians is to become Christ-like. Upon conversion and in our journey of faith, one thing becomes clear: we are nowhere near where we should be in imaging Christ and living out the reality of the amazing transformation that he has worked in us…
Guest Post: Suffering Well Through the Death of a Loved One
After what seemed like an eternity of rigorous attempts to save her, the team of doctors, in a synchronized fashion, stopped and slowly stepped away from the bed. The head surgeon approached me and muttered the words “I am so sorry…” I can’t remember what he said after that. They called her time of death. My wife of seven years and mother of my four young children had just crossed the threshold from time to eternity.
Guest Post: The Waves of Grief
“He did not make it.” These are the last words that I recall from that “meeting” at home on the afternoon of 16th February 2020. Something about that Sunday and having many people over had not felt right and it had suddenly become crushingly clear why. Unbeknownst to us, up until much later in the day, was the death of my elder brother in a road accident that morning. Four days after his 28th birthday!
Guest Post: Anchors For the Soul
Do you have sea legs? I’ve never been to the sea. Consequently, I don’t know if I have sea legs or not. Lately, I’ve been thinking about the beautiful and super loaded metaphor that an anchor represents.
Guest Post: A Christian’s Perspective on COVID-19 Pandemic
“We are living in unprecedented times,” this is what I have heard the media describe the global pandemic that caught the world off guard. The Bible gives us a perspective that these times are not particularly unprecedented, perhaps only in light of what we call the postmodern world.
Guest Post: Motherhood and COVID-19
On our guest post today we read the perspective of a mother dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. Karen Muiruri shares her experience as she follows the preventive precautions while trusting God who is ultimately able to protect us. “Don’t put that in your mouth!” I…
Guest Post: Needless Singleness
Needless singleness is like a cancerous tumor that needs surgical removal. In one of John MacArthur’s sermons, he famously remarked that if it were up to him, he’d have all the single men and women in his church, line up opposite sides to each other and ask every man to point out a woman he fancied marrying. If the woman shared the same fancy in the young man, he would marry them and every other ‘couple’ after that. John said it more tongue in cheek than he was serious, but beneath that statement was a veneer of seriousness.
Where were you when He laid the foundations of the earth?
Happy new year! Not too late to wish you one, right? We begin the year on this side with a guest post from an anonymous writer. Enjoy the read. 🙂 *** Finally, it has been made clear that there is no future, in fact, there…
