The Christian’s Hope

I'm not a good Christian. I lack faith when it's needed most. I lie, to myself and to others. I fall into sin time and time again. I know what you're thinking... If I'm so sinful, how can I want to give you advice? The thing is, as I struggle to navigate the minefield which…

“Wonga Gut”

If you're Jamaican and a good Jamaican you know what the term "wonga gut" means. This is the term we use to refer to that person who is just never full. Their bodies seem to operate on what we refer to as a "see-food" diet. They see food, they want food, they generally don't stop…

Square Block Part 2

..."Life has a harsh way of telling you dreams don't always come through. I've known for a while the strain a relationship can put on a friendship but this time I was so caught up in the flight, I didn't notice until it had shattered. I felt like my life was broken. I just finished polishing…

Square Block Part 1

This time I'll share with you something personal. Something my mom will definitely call me after reading. It wasn't what I had planned on posting this week but I felt impressed to share with you something I wrote a few years ago while going through a hard time in my life. I hope you are…

Embarrassed

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.(Romans 1:16 KJV) Have you ever gone out with someone, but you didn't want anyone important to see you?  I think that for…

Diamonds for Musgravite

Yes, I know your first question... What on earth is musgravite? Well, being as I'm in a research mode from all these assignments... I looked it up. See, I was thinking, more like singing... "There's no thirsting for life's river, nor adorning rich and gay, for I've found a richer treasure, one that fadeth not…

Thoughts of a Young Christian

Dear Friend, You'd be surprised at the things that go on inside my mind. I often tell my friends I never stop thinking (an obvious lie of course), but the truth is sometimes I wish I thought things through more and at others I wish I could stop thinking. I told an acquaintance the other…

Empty Vessels

The potter sits at his wheel. With a firm but gentle touch, he begins to shape the clay as the wheel turns. He already knows what he's going to make, he sees the image clearly in his mind. This wont be a water pot, an urn, a mug, a bowl, nothing for use; it will…

To Know Right

Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.(James 4:17 KJV) Have you ever heard the correct version of a story but just simply didn't feel like believing it? Or maybe you believed but just preferred the version you knew? If you're anything like me, you probably…

The Forgotten Coin

Have you ever put money away and forgot about it? I bet that when you came across it you paused to try and remember how and when you placed it there, or if you even did. It's happened to me a few dozen times. It always shows up just when you need it though, doesn't…
