Perfect Timing…

“There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to…

Life…

Lives matter. Every life, every heartbeat, matters in light of eternity. I have recently been confronted over and over again by the notion that some lives are more valuable than others. Babies in the womb are a prime example. If the mother wants the child, then the life matters – then medical professionals will do…

Rock-a-bye Baby…

“So rock-a-bye baby, come and rest. You’ve been tired lately lay your head down. Don’t you think baby I know best, I’ve been a Father for a long time.” Cecie’s Lullabye by Stephany Gretzinger Here. This moment. This counts in eternity… These words resonate in my spirit as I sit in a dark room rocking my…

A Promise Worth Keeping…

“Suffering. Rejoicing. Squalor. Beauty. Love.  Pain. These are the things that surround me, and all of them are from Him. This life is beautiful and terrible and simple and difficult, and He is using it for His glory.” – Katie Davis in Kisses from Katie This new year, 2018, has started off with an invitation…

Beautiful things…

“You make beautiful things; You make beautiful things out of the dust. You make beautiful things; You make beautiful things out of us” – Beautiful Things by Gungor I like beautiful things. I have always liked them. My parents used to tease me about my expensive taste as a child. Don’t get me wrong. There…

A Mountaintop Experience…

‘How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who says to Zion,  “Your God reigns!”.  Is. 52:7 I remember as a Grade 8 pupil reading a book titled “A Mountaintop Experience” about a young, disillusioned teacher who left her…

Sacrifice…

The more time I spend with the Lord, the more my focus turns away from myself to Him and the clearer it becomes that Christ and His glory is the end of it all. It doesn’t have anything to do with me. I can choose to make my life matter and build into His Kingdom…

Adoption…

“I will not leave you as orphans. I will come to you.” John 14:18 Right from the start of creation God has expressed His father heart to us. A heart of forgiveness, love, compassion and direction. A heart of adoption… It’s been a while since I have shared my thoughts and fears on our family and…

Humble beginnings…

“Do not despise the day of small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin…” Zech. 4:10 (NLT) When God has birthed a dream inside of you it is often frustrating to prove faithful in times of small beginnings because you have seen a glimpse of what is to come. I look at a piece…

Let go…

So let go my soul and trust in Him, the waves and wind still know His name. -It is Well, Bethel Music Letting go is one of the hardest things for a person to do. We are often taught the value of resilience, perseverance and inner strength by society. Society values the man who will…

The need…

Today I am struggling with the need all around me. Just minutes earlier there was a knock at our door and yet another sweet lady with pleading eyes and children by her side asking me to help with her crèche. “Please, we will take any help that you can offer”. As I told her that…

Spirit lead…

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders, let me walk upon the waters wherever you would call me. Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander, my faith would be made stronger in the presence of my Saviour – Oceans, Bethel Music Spirit lead me…Often I find myself saying these words over…

Rain…

Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life – Jn 4:13 I am reminded of these words of Jesus over and over again lately.…

Birthing the dream…

Here I sit, trying to think of inspiring words to enthral readers and make for a memorable first blog post. Grabbing this precious free hour as my 17-month old naps, I try to think of funny anecdotes, motivating moments and worthwhile causes to show the world that Izandla ZeAfrika is an organisation that cares. But…
