'BE'coming

STONE-FACED

Because the Sovereign Lord helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore, I have set my face like a stone, determined to do His will. And I know that I will not be put to shame. Isaiah 50: 7 NLT When ever I read the Bible these days, I try to read it like aContinue reading “STONE-FACED”

TOOLBOX

“We are nothing but pencils in the hands of the creator” This is a popular phrase we all know and use, meaning God’s absolute control over us. I was teaching this to my children recently, telling them how as pencils in the hand of God, He can use us to write messages to the world.Continue reading “TOOLBOX”

All

This week, my household encountered the music of ‘For King and Country’. We have listened to a few of their songs without realising who sang them, but we spent a lot of time watching a video of their song ‘Amen’. The video is amazing with lots of meaningful aesthetics and each scene symbolized an aspectContinue reading “All”

The 7000

I was listening to a song recently and these words jumped out at me “For we’ve settled the question, we’ve made our choice”. The more I ponder on the song, the more I realize that the writers of the song were very intentional about those words. My thoughts… when you answer a question, there’s roomContinue reading “The 7000”

Higher Ground

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life”. John 3:16 A story of love, sacrifice, forgiveness and grace will be shared across platforms and altars this weekend as we all celebrate Easter. This week, we reflect on theseContinue reading “Higher Ground”

A Call to Correct

Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; The rod of discipline [correction administered with godly wisdom and lovingkindness] will remove it far from him.Proverbs 22:15 AMP I love Proverbs 22:15 and the words highlighted by the amplified version for clarification help to give additional guidance. First, I will like to clarify thatContinue reading “A Call to Correct”

Eyes on Us

Children learn a lot by observing, they have their eyes laser-focused on you even when you are not aware of it. My husband and I agree that our parents are our greatest influencers. I see a lot of traits in my husband that make me say, “the apple did not fall too far from theContinue reading “Eyes on Us”

Are you there?

During our morning prayers, I overheard my husband say the words, “Father, your presence is all we need today”. Those lines are not new but today, they stopped my own prayers and my thoughts began to wander, as I stopped to ponder on those words. Father – a parent figure; Presence – a state ofContinue reading “Are you there?”

Paper Trail

Have you ever tried chasing a piece of paper that is being blown away by the wind, Pretty difficult right? In most cases, you never catch it. To chase this paper, you’ll need to focus on the paper, the wind direction and nothing else. Often, the paper falls to the ground, stays for a fewContinue reading “Paper Trail”

One Year After

It has been one year since Life and Becoming started and we have loved this journey. Every Saturday, we committed to share a story in our quest to reach ‘One’. Each story challenged us personally and we hope changed your own perspective. We reached more than one and we are taking time out to acknowledgeContinue reading “One Year After”

Friend of Sinners

Son of Man, Healer, Saviour, Master, Lord are a few words used to describe Jesus. My friend put up a picture with a write up that says, ‘this year, I want to be more like Jesus – hang out with sinners’ and a list of other things that Jesus will do. This particular reputation ofContinue reading “Friend of Sinners”

On Target

Every now and then, I love to sit back, relax and watch a good movie. My husband likes action movies from the Marvel Hall of Fame. One of the scene from an action-packed movie that stays with me is when a fighter jet is about to release a missile. The first action the fighter pilotContinue reading “On Target”

i SEE

Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. (Habakkuk 2:2) Meet Sarah and David, over seven years ago, they were newly married living in a nice house downtown. But they both shared a common vision of living on a largeContinue reading “i SEE”

My ‘Blockbuster’

When I think of a Blockbuster Movie, I think of a highly anticipated movie that smashes world financial and viewing records and finally sweeps awards at the Oscars. I usually think of the process that leads to the release of such movies. The directing, search for ideal actors/actresses, the right plot, right location and theContinue reading “My ‘Blockbuster’”

Follow The Lights

This evening like the Wise men, my family and I decided to follow the lights. We all dressed up, packed a bag of treats, got into the car and began our long drive around town in search of Christmas decorations. We saw everything, lights, Christmas accents and figurines. Some houses even had full nativity scenes,Continue reading “Follow The Lights”

Faith Through Her Eyes

An email from the Daycare centre on a Saturday morning was unusual. Our guess was right, it was unusual. It was a one-pager informing all Parents and Caregivers that someone at the Center tested positive for COVID-19 and affected parents will be contacted for further details. Up until now, the Center had been up andContinue reading “Faith Through Her Eyes”

Go Easy on Me!

As a child, I remember playing the video game ‘Street Fighter’, I liked the female fighters a lot and leaned in their direction for choice of players. Street Fighter allowed me to do things that could only happen in my imaginations. One of the female fighters always started a fight with the words, ‘Go easyContinue reading “Go Easy on Me!”

One and The Same

There is a story deep within me that needs to be told. An interesting adventure my life has been. In all the places I have been and with all the people I have met, I realise that we all have the same needs, similar wants and the same desire for love, respect and recognition. FromContinue reading “One and The Same”

Think like an Employer

Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty. (Proverbs 21:5 NLT) At the start of every year, most companies have a goals planning session where the management team reviews the prior year’s performance of the company and develops plans for the year in view and beyond. These companies careContinue reading “Think like an Employer”

Just Surfing…

One day, while I was sitting in the living room, I heard the words, “Hey Google, show me ballet practice lessons”. As it is programmed to do, Google obeyed and in no time, hundreds of ballet lessons downloaded. This request was made by a child. Just then, a thought came to me, what if sheContinue reading “Just Surfing…”

Young and Restless

Sometime ago, I used the words ‘Young and Restless’ to describe myself in a team introduction video. A few months later, I met some younger folks who were now where I was over a decade ago and I realised how much I had become ‘old and rested’. ‘Old and rested’, an interesting way to describeContinue reading “Young and Restless”

Money & Relationships

Money ranks high up there as one of the major conflict triggers in relationships. From business partners to couples, siblings and friends, it seems money has a way of binding or breaking. I have seen best friends and even lovers who seem completely devoted, parting ways because of a simple piece of paper with a symbol onContinue reading “Money & Relationships”

New Money

Every year, most of us get either a pay increase at work, a new job with higher pay or maybe finally get that first job right after school. The pay check that comes with any of these moves is what I refer to as ‘New Money’. ‘New money’ is the difference between your former netContinue reading “New Money”

Everyday Battles

I have heard it said frequently that the world is a battlefield and we are part of the war whether we like to admit it or not. From the moment that our waking eyes begin to attribute meaning to things, our consciousness is awakened to the battle between good and evil. From the pictures inContinue reading “Everyday Battles”

A Father’s Hand

One of the words I heard very often as a child was the word ‘strict’ used so many times to refer to my father. I too soon realized that he was a very strict man. He had a reputation for being straight forward, uncompromising in his beliefs and very orderly. You only needed to haveContinue reading “A Father’s Hand”

Whose Shoe is it?

As I walked casually in simple slipper that cost me less than $10, I do not recall the conversation in exact words but I think it went something like this, ‘Nice slippers’ and I must have replied, ‘Thank you, that is why I bought it’. (I heard that version of response from my cousin andContinue reading “Whose Shoe is it?”

League of ONE!

We had just finished our exams and with just one week left to our holiday, we had no studies and nothing to do in school. I cannot remember the class exactly, but it was Senior Secondary (High School). My friends and I decided that rather than go to school, we would hang out. One ofContinue reading “League of ONE!”

What’s Trending?

Back in High School, one of my numerous nicknames was ‘Trendy’, so you can say I know a thing or two about trends. Something, someone, some place or some news is always trending. Some trends last a while, others go by so quickly. Today, amid all that is going on around us, I find itContinue reading “What’s Trending?”

Am I really lazy?

It was my third Sunday Service in a new church, and I was beginning to settle in. I liked the Pastor; he delivers what I call the ‘Gospel Truth’. I like truth, you know the kind that we grew up hearing ‘hurts’. The hurt part is the shaping part that pulls you back in lineContinue reading “Am I really lazy?”

Finding Home

Recently I listened to the song “Ancient words” by The Acappella Company, and these lines jumped out at me: “Words of life, Words of hope, give us strength, help us cope. In this world, where-e ér we roam, ancient words will guide us home.” ‘Ancient Words will guide us home’ hmm! Home, a place ofContinue reading “Finding Home”

Baby Steps

Recently, I was reminded that moving is at the core of our being. Our creator first introduced himself as a mover and shaker. If we are really like him and not like trees, being stagnant should make us uncomfortable. So, if you have been doing the same thing for longer than required, it is timeContinue reading “Baby Steps”

Make that move

Risk, Unknown, Bold, Move, Change, Action, a few words that we have used frequently on this blog. Some months ago, I decided to take a year off work to rest, relax and reset – Codename R3. As I shared my plan with a friend, the reaction was “That is BOLD, I envy you”. Although, IContinue reading “Make that move”

Quick Question

Knowledge, they say is power! There are so many ways to acquire it, some routes take more time than others. In my quest for knowledge, I have relied on several quick questions to help me bridge the gap from ‘Unknown’ to ‘Known’. Since I cannot claim to know everything, quick questions have become a recurringContinue reading “Quick Question”

More than a day….

It is not unusual to hear some people refer to days like Valentine, Birthdays and Anniversaries as just another day. I think differently, first of all, every day is a blessing in my world. Another chance to do right, live better and do more. Special days are even more important as they mark the startContinue reading “More than a day….”
