Sunday mornings

I grew up with you, I reluctlantly visited you every week, and sometimes more often. You were strictly an obligation, you were always part of my life, and yet, something was missing. From an early age I knew you weren’t perfect, but I wanted you to be. You tried your best to make me feel…

My story isn’t about me…

After a much needed season of rest, reflection and regrouping, not to mention settling into a new life in a new country and a new job, I’m finally ready to process all the interesting emotions I faced when the Lord asked me to surrender all of my plans to Him. I know my friends and…

Leap of faith

I’m absolutely thrilled to be sharing a story of an answered prayer with you.  I’ve been holding on to this piece of information for a while now, but the desire in my heart has been years in the making. God is so good! For years I wondered what God was up to, I understood the…

Rest

I’m not sure what you may be going through today, I’m not sure what’s heavy on your heart, but I do know this; God wants you to go to Him first. There are so many distractions in life, so many opportunities to take our minds and hearts away from our relationship with Christ.  It can…

“Burnout”, Boundaries and saying “No”

Sweet sister, if you’ve ever experienced the heavy weight of “people pleasing” and the burden of saying no; if you’ve ever felt backed into a corner when making decisions, or the guilt or worry of the effects of your decision, this post is for you. “We fearfully tread over thin ice when met with the…

Exposed

Social Media, I have a bone to pick with you today. Over the last few months, it’s become quite apparent to me that you have skeletons in your closet. For one, as much as you connect people and make the world feel a little smaller, you’ve also exposed some harsh realities. I’m a positive person,…

First place

 If you would have asked me where I’d be and what I’d be doing 10 years ago, I would have never imagined it this way.  For years I kept Jesus in the background. I sort of kept Him at a distance while dabbling in the world and my own desires.  I called myself a Christian,…

Delight

Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you your heart’s desire (Psalm 37:4, NLT) I am DELIGHTED to share some exciting news with you! Over the weekend, I found out that I would be writing for the Daughter of Delight team! Over the next 3 months I’ll be writing every week as their Wednesday…

Filter

Seeing isn’t always believing. Our physical eyes can be so cruel, focusing on our own flaws and the flaws in others. They tend to just focus on what’s in front of them, only believing what they can see. Most of the time we just need a “Holy Spirit filter”. God’s speciality is making impossible a…

Culture.

I was born in Canada, so that makes me Canadian. My parents were born in India, so that makes me Indian.  I believe in Jesus Christ, so that makes me Christian. I’m also a popcorn-eating, faith-blogging, elementary teacher who loves reading, writing and arithmetic.  So what does that make me? I can’t tell you how…
