A Season of Sober Reflections

I believe we are alive at this time for a reason. And whatever we need to survive and thrive in this world has been made available by God.

Exploring Lamentations

? I recently came across the concept of lamentation. Lamenting to God and telling Him exactly how I feel, without holding back or mincing words. I understand that He can take it. He can take my lamentations without lashing out at me, because He is good.

Expecting An August Visitor?

So, are you expecting an august visitor? What are your plans for the last qarter of the year? Because August will fly by fast and September too. Don’t let autumn sneak up on you. Winter is around the corner. Any plans for Christmas? It may seem like a world away but it is not. That was how we looked at July and now it is ending. Dust up your plans. Get to living again. Even if the pandemic manages to slip into January, we will overcome. We will still be here to give thanks to God for life, for provision and preservation. It is not over yet!
