My Very Own Pulpit

The past two months have been very interesting; not exclusively because I went MIA (I do apologize for that.. to those who noticed and actually truly care) but because it has indeed been an interesting season. I travelled to Switzerland and had a really great time; I started my Master’s degree, and have been acing all…

Roots and Sources

Discomfort stretches you. It challenges you. It’s more than okay to feel this way. We all get uncomfortable at time. Discomfort causes you to think. To be creative. Step out of the box, Try and do the new. Discomfort is good. At times, a welcomed pain. But there are different types of pain. There is…

The Death of The Church

I know a whole lot about churches. You see, I grew up catholic. Okay, that’s not totally true. I think it better to say I attended catholic kindergartens, pre-schools, primary schools and secondary schools. They were simply the best. They usually are- run by the church. And, as a schools run by nuns, masses and…

Dealing with Loss(es)

“For the thing which I greatly feared has come upon me, and that which I was afraid of has come unto me.” Job 3:25 My past couple of weeks have been exceedingly interesting. While some things which initially appeared to be above-and-beyond terrible turned out to be terribly wonderful (in the making), some things simply…

The Different Levels of (AB)Normal(ity)

Alright, so the weirdest thing ever happened to me on Tuesday. Well, weirdest thing is probably exaggerated; however, it all did look and sound and feel very very strange indeed. A friend and I were supposed to watch a movie on Tuesday and agreed to meet up well before the movie. Long story short, I…

The Power of Particular Words

I’m not a very particular person. I don’t really care that much. But I can be particular about a handful of things. Very particular, you see.. I particularly dislike jeans. Everyone knows that. That is, everyone who has ever had a deep and meaninful, life-changing and inspirational conversation with me. At the forefront of whatever topic or…

Feel Bad? Then Give!

Today, an excerpt from the only daily devotional (apart from Our Daily Bread) that I have enjoyed reading, and have faithfully and persistently done so, for the past couple of years: Leadership Promises for Everyday by John C. Maxwell. *** Feel Bad? Then Give! “And there is one who withholds more than is right, but…

The Difference

The Difference I got up early one morning And rushed right into the day; I had so much to accomplish That I didn’t have time to pray. Problems just tumbled about me, And heavier came each task. “Why doesn’t God help me?” I wondered. He answered, “You didn’t ask.” I wanted to see joy and…

There just might be some work to do…

Today, I am sharing Tuesday’s Leadership Promises For Everyday– a daily devotional by the renowned teacher John C. Maxwell. There is- as usual- a lot of truth in it. Give yourself a chance; reflect! 😉 (p.s. Should the writing be too small, simply click on the image to enlarge.)

What Would YOU Do?

Today I am sharing a short excerpt from yesterday’s entry on The John Maxwell Company. I am sharing the intro, but am encouraging you to click on this link and read the rest. You certainly will not regret it. Enjoy… and pOnder! The following moral/ethical dilemma supposedly was included on an actual job application: You…

Who/ What Are You?

1. Introversion or Extroversion Every person has two faces. One is directed towards the OUTER world of activities, excitements, people, and things. The other is directed inward to the INNER world of thoughts, interests, ideas, and imagination. While these are two different but complementary sides of our nature, most people have an innate preference towards energy from either the OUTER or…

Life’s Clock

The clock of life is touched but once, And no man hath the power To tell just where the hands will stop At late or early hour.  To lose one’s wealth is sad indeed: To lose one’s health is more: To lose one’s soul is such a loss As no man can restore. The present…

A Beautiful Chapter on Wisdom: Job 28

1 “People know where to mine silver and how to refine gold. 2 They know where to dig iron from the earth and how to smelt copper from rock. 3 They know how to shine light in the darkness and explore the farthest regions of the earth as they search in the dark for ore. 4 They sink a mine shaft into the…

A Pure Heart

As the blogger that I’ve become, I’ve just spent hours -again- checking out other blogs. I came across an absolutely amazing one. I considered it sinful not to share it with you. It’s called Transforming Grace and can be found here. It is owned by Neil Robbie, a Christian minister currently serving in West Bromwich,…

Wisdom from Oswald Chambers

To those who have had no agony Jesus says, “I have nothing for you; stand on your own feet, square your own shoulders. I have come for the man who knows he has a bigger handful than he can cope with, who knows there are forces he cannot touch; I will do everything for him…

The Invisible Hand..

I’ve been thinking quite a bit about Times & Seasons. Actually, I kind of always think much about it. It’s probably one of my favorite topics.. There is only so much man can influence- with his actions, thoughts, decisions. There is only so far an idea will take you. Someone else might pick up from where…

…Replaced?

Today I’m sharing something very close to my heart. Those who know me (well) know of my love, admiration, respect and attachment for all things “Hebrew/Israelite/Jewish”: the language, the people, the customs, culture, and history; in a nutshell: everything from A-Z. One of my very few or plenty interests of/ for discussion, hence, stems from…

MUFHH: Going Through Spiritual Confusion

Today’s post (Sept 12. 2011) stems from My Utmost For His Highest– a devotional sharing the ideas, teachings and preachings of our beloved Oswald Chambers. There won’t be many words from me; simply a message I believe I should share with you. Luke 11 was yesternight’s meditation upon my bed; and was as well the…
