It can be easy to look at the everyday, mundane nature of life and ask ourselves this very question. I remember reading a book in school that described people in the “rat race”. People going to and from their work and daily lives, like a swarm of mice going back and forth, back and forth, […]Read More So Why am I Here Again?
Heading home from New York City after my internship, I knew that my suitcase was overweight. I had tried to get rid of as much as I could before I left, but, after three months there, I not only carried my belongings home with me, but many sentimental items too. There were gifts from the […]Read More Adventure Awaits: Packing Light
I remember the night well. I was sat in Deeside Christian Fellowship Church in Aberdeen, Scotland – It was 2006 and I was part of the Senior Youth Fellowship (SYF) group, sitting at the back-right of the dimly lit hall. One light shone brightly, illuminating the gentleman speaking at the front. He shared his experiences […]Read More Adventure Awaits: The Waiting Game
(I recently shared an abbreviated version of this blogpost in A Modern Day Epidemic) In my late teens and early twenties, I was plagued with sickness after sickness.

But one instance, one moment left a crack in my heart like no other during those months. Every Saturday I rode Bus 19 […]Read More The Depth of a Hug
I’m sure we’ve all been there at one time or another; we fall hopelessly for a man or woman who does not share the same feelings for us. We lose time day-dreaming about them and imagining a life together, making all sorts of plans for the future, while they live their lives without us in […]Read More The Ache of Unrequited Love
I was sat comfortably, as it happened, in my economy seat onboard the British Airways aircraft that would take me back to Germany after a fortnight of reunions and precious time with family in Aberdeen over the Christmas period. The flight roster was quiet, gifting me an entire row of seats to myself. The safety […]Read More Are You Sitting Comfortably?
I began this week with 1p in my bank account. I knew this day would come eventually, having had no regular income since I quit my job in Scotland in March. But, I was also confident that God is a God who provides, therefore I had no reason to worry when it did arrive. However, […]Read More Um, Where’s my Miracle?
