Light in Darkness

The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple - Psalm 119:130 I don't like darkness. It's heavy, oppressive and downright scary. It makes you feel helpless, vulnerable and causes you to stumble because you can't see where you're going or what's in front of you. What gets rid of the darkness? …

Cry Out

I cry out to the Lord with my voice; With my voice to the Lord I make my supplication. I pour out my complaint before Him; I declare before Him my trouble. When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, Then You knew my path. In the way in which I walk They have secretly set a snare for me - Psalm 142:1-3, …

Jesus, the Lamp Who Gives True Light

“This city has no need of sun or moon to shine upon it, for the glory of God is its light, and its lamp is the Lamb” – Revelation 21:23.  This scripture brought to my mind this other scripture, “Your word is a lamp to my feet. And a light to my path” – Psalm …

From Self-harm to Self-love

Neeha always wore long sleeves even when it was hot and humid outside because she didn't want anyone, especially her friends to see the ugly cuts on her arms.  She wanted to stop cutting herself but she couldn't seem to.  It started when she became pregnant and told her mother who said, "Unless you get …

The Believer’s Walk/Journey #writephoto

The believer’s walk is not an easy journey.  It is fraught with fear, questions, doubts, trials, opposition and distractions.  Coming out of spiritual darkness and into God’s light takes faith, courage and determination, especially when it means forsaking old habits, lifestyles and in some cases relationships.  One has to consider what they are giving up …

The Path/Destination #writephoto

A path flanked by trees stretches out before me.  I proceed cautiously because of the mist which unfurls like a ghost’s hand.  It clears as I draw closer.  That chases away the uneasiness in the pit of my stomach and my steps become bolder.  When I reach the other side, I am greeted by the …

A Surpassable Peace

I stand here, staring at the stony path which leads to the gates of the convent and beyond.  A peace which surpasses all understanding fills me. After living at the convent for ten years, I no longer wanted to cloister myself so I decided to leave the order.  This was after much prayer and fasting. …

Off Course

Let your eyes look straight ahead and your sight be focused in front of you - Proverbs 4:25 Years ago my mother, two sisters and I went to the Bahamas. One day we were in the swimming pool and I decided that I would swim from one end to the other. Mind you, I was …

Cora walked along the path, the new bonnet in her hand.  While the family was entertaining the vicar and his family, she opted to venture out here.  Her face was turned up to the sky, her flushed cheeks becoming.  She wanted to loosened her raven dark so that it tumbled down her back but that …

A Model Moment

She stood there watching as the evening unfurled, a solitary figure in a room filled with people from the fashion and business world.  She was there by invitation from her friend, a fashion photographer.  She felt so out of place.  She wasn't used to be around such glamorous people.  Several people thought she was a model. …
