Let it rain

Lately Cape Town has been experiencing a lot of rain and every time I see the grey clouds outside my window I think of Heinz Winckler’s song “Let it rain”. In this song he cries out to God to open the floodgates of heaven.

In the same way the dams catch and store the rain, we as God’s children should be ready to catch and store up all God wants to tell us and bless us with. Paul tells us in Acts 1:8 (, that the Holy Spirit will pour out on us and we need to be ready to receive Him, whenever, wherever.



The Outcasts

Here we see the all too familiar high school mean-popular group vs smart-nerdy group aka “the outcasts”. The latter have had enough of being the target and come up with a plan to switch things up. Mid-plan they lose sight of the point of this whole mission and start compromising on the important stuff.

Being a teenager today is challenging; it’s easy to lose sight of what is right, and what is important. This is why we need to constantly connect with God and listen to the Holy Spirit as He guides us.

Read Galatians 5:16 here –


Finding it simple.

The weird thing about life is that, as confusing and complex as it so often seems to be, it’s also unbelievably simple.

There are thousands of opportunities each day for you to disobey God and get involved in stuff you actually know will mess you up, and yet the psalmist offers us peace and a practical way forward amidst all that noise: ‘How can a young person stay pure? By obeying Your word.’ (Psalm 119:9

If today gets hectic and you’re drawn towards something toxic, ask the Holy Spirit to highlight God’s word over that situation. What do you know to be true? Be brave to live it. Solomon tells us in Proverbs 9:10, ‘Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment.’



Walking into the last weekend of 2019, it’s a great opportunity to reflect on what’s been and what’s to come.

How was your year?
What are your highlights and how did you grow as a person?
What are you looking forward to in 2020?
How are you planning to grow your faith in 2020?

My prayer for you is Romans 15:13 – I pray that you are filled with joy and hope as you walk into the promises of the new year, knowing that you can trust the Holy Spirit to walk alongside you every step of the way.

Trust God with your 2020!
