“How can I know who I am, until I find out who I was?” – Jack Frost.

Sometimes, we end up questioning everything – even ourselves! We forget who we are and what our purpose is in this big world. We might even find ourselves living a life that we’re not happy with because we are trying to keep other people happy.

Don’t feel responsible for people’s happiness! We tend to live in fear and lose faith that God has a plan for our lives. We only need to live our lives for God, striving to please Him.

Galatians 1:10 (




I really like this quote about friendship: “On a bench, sit two friends. They sit there in silence. The one gets up to go. As that friend leaves, the remaining friend thinks, that was the best conversation I’ve ever had.”
Friends get each other. Sometimes they don’t need to say things, but simply just be there.

We can have that friendship with Jesus too. There is a bench. You are sitting on it. And so is Jesus. What would He say to you? Maybe He has wisdom to share. Maybe you both will sit in silence. And that will be enough. Jesus is enough.

John 15:13 (



He restores.

Did you hear about or see the ‘clean up’ work that went on around KZN after the riots and looting? I was thrilled to see people of different colours and backgrounds cleaning alongside each other. This was a glimpse of restoration, and hope of things to come.

Psalm 126 (

Here Israel rejoices that the Lord brought restoration of what had been taken and lost. He outdid their beliefs and expectations.

It is the Lord who restores.
He has done great things for us.

May we boldly ask Him to bring restoration like streams in the desert (v4) across South Africa.




Switchfoot have this great new album, Interrobang and on there is a song called, Beloved.
Here are some lyrics:

Oh, if only I could open up my eyes / Would the truth be what would set me free?
If only I could open up my eyes / Would I see that maybe I need You / Like You need me?

It’s weird to think that God needs us.

But I rather see it as, God longs for us. He longs for us to not do life alone and without Him.
Maybe we need to open our eyes and return to that truth. You are His beloved.

1 John 4:10 (
