“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 (



Yes Man!

This movie is one of my personal favourites!
Someone once said: “The world’s a playground. You know that when you’re a kid, but somewhere along the way everyone forgets is.” – Allison

We’re so tired of our lives, of doing chores and homework; maybe even having never-ending stress at school that without thinking, often the first answer to anything is NO.

Life is supposed to be exciting – don’t grow up too quickly, stay a kid longer!
Take life a bit easier, don’t be so serious!
Your life can be whatever you make it to be – EVERYDAY!

Genesis 28:15 (




Cape Town is a sea of colour, music and revelry during Tweede-Nuwe-Jaar celebrations. This tradition stems from the time when slavery was still common practice. Slaves got one day off a year. They celebrated this freedom hard on 2nd January but then went back to being slaves from 3rd January.

The devil, who is not your friend, wants you to believe (and so live) as if your freedom is temporary. “Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you” (Galatians 5:1 –
Jesus paid a high price, once and for all, to rescue you from slavery of sin – for you to truly live.


“The Hunger Games”

Early on in this movie we realize it is set in a world none of us want to live in. Yet it is ironically similar to our own. The rich thrive at the expense of the poor, and grow stronger on the suffering of the powerless.
We have to be aware of our choices and their consequences.

How should we live in a world that is darkened by sin? John 1:1-18( has the answer to this heavy question.

Let’s allow God’s light in us to shine through us, and pierce the darkness of the world.
