  • 3 REASONS why 2020 has been a year of goodness

    This year was difficult, painful, and downright crappy in many ways. But I believe this was still a year of God’s goodness, not simply despite the overt chaos that has permeated it, but because of it. We need only to open our spiritual eyes to see beyond the physical, and get in touch with His heart.
  • Who Writes My Name?

    Our culture now tells us we have to live up to a certain standard - have a large amount of money in our banks; attain a high ranking job; have a huge social media following or ‘likes’ on our posts - in order to be “successful”. I’m not saying those are wrong to have. But as I pondered about it, I questioned myself, “Do these really form the foundation of identity that God has meant for me?”

  • REST: 8 ways to know if you are fully rested

    Resting in the Lord is a journey I am constantly on. It feels like a game where I conquer a level of ‘Rest’ only to be reminded that there’s yet another. And another. Through this journey, I am beginning to realise to a greater extent that the Lord’s desire for us is to return to the garden of Eden - His original intent - for us to enjoy rest with Him.

  • Why I stopped using ‘GCG’ and GCB’

    Good Christian Girl (GCG).
    Good Christian Boy (GCB).

    What comes to mind? 
    Do you think of someone in your cell group? Or a church leader? 

    Recently, more people have been using the terms ‘GCG’ or ‘GCB’. I’ve even heard non-believers use them. They’re often used to describe Christians who are outwardly devoted, don't curse, don't drink, or don’t engage in vices frequently (or at all). 

  • Covid-19 in Europe: How thanksgiving changed the way I viewed getting recalled back.

    On Sunday, 15th March, I woke up to a press release from MOE. It was the letter I was dreading: the official recall of all overseas students. My heart was flooded with mixed emotions. I felt relieved as the UK had a surge of Covid-19 cases and I no longer felt safe. But I also felt immense sadness as I was forced to leave this beautiful continent. I remember even asking God, “Did You not want me to get closer to you? Did You not want me to rest? Why are You doing this just as I started settling down in this foreign land?”

  • Finding Your Purpose in Life

    I get asked this question a lot. What am I here on Earth for? What’s my purpose?

    

The truth is… I asked myself that a lot, too.

    This is perhaps the biggest question in life. What are we here for?

    To answer that, we first need to accept that we are created beings. We don’t just appear out of nowhere, or move and bend circumstances with our wills. We were created by a Creator, a Supreme Being. And if so, that Creator must have a purpose in creating us.
