I thought about it, & I realised, how many safe people I have in my life... In life's journey with me.
If I wanna call or text or tell in person something happy or sad or seriously random or completely irrelevant to them - I feel almost obligated to tell the same story again and again so all of them know.
Only cause I feel like if I update one, I should update another, like I shouldn't leave anyone of them out of the loop, and I don't want them out of the loop too!
(Current favourite act that I have "performed" for my friends is my attempt at 3 to 4 Chinese accents, which btw I am so delighted with, it is so fun and I will encore for you 😂)
But I'm also not some kind of broadcasting centre, I'm genuinely talking about the people I can trust in my life and it dawned on me - seeing how many times I wanna repeat my story - there's quite a couple of them.
Is the word, "precious" overused already...
But thank you, my friends. You probably follow this account too and I'm grateful that you would share in my stories and be an encouraging and many times needed voice - to cheer me on, talk sense to me and pray with me.
"Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching." Hebrews 10:25
True, true. Amen.
& thanks mum, dad, bro, grandma, grandpa, even my helper... & definitely Jesus... I am so drama, but no one gave up on me.
Thank you for loving me 💜🙆🏻♀️
When my dad died 11 years ago, I thought all my dreams died with him.
He strongly believed in me and showed it every chance he got.
As I mourned him then; I also mourned the loss of my self-confidence, dreams and direction.
Little did I know that I had all I needed inside of me; ME.
And that by determination, hardwork and divine grace, I would come to achieve those dreams I had then, and many that were yet imagined.
Today, I am proud of how far I have come. I am on a journey on which I have been handed an exit permit several times but I stand still. 💭
Especially that I recently started to break the ground for the big vision I have for my business, that young lady at Dad’s graveside would never have thought any of it possible. 💭
If the loss of a dear one has ever made (or currently makes) you feel lost or ‘dead’, trust me, I understand. I have been there.
But I do know that you can find the fire again, you can find you again.
It may not be easy. By all means, get help as you need it.
But be assured of this--you can find ‘you’ again.
I am rooting for you.👥🙌 Signed,

“Jesus doesn’t want us to spend the priceless gift He’s giving today absorbed in the unreality of an imagined tomorrow.” - Jon Bloom
How often I live inside my head immersed in these imagined unrealities. It is so easy to forget that God’s grace is sufficient in the present time, for the current circumstance. And in the next moment, for the next thing-at-hand, He will give the grace needed. But He only gives it then, when (and if) it’s needed. 🍃
Don’t run ahead of God, walk in-step with Him.
and though my heart wanders off into the distance, in search of things that feel like home. I am reminded that home is indeed where the heart lies, and I pray that it may always lay with You.
"Everything has changed and yet I am more me than I have ever been"
Acutrate quote to describe the last year of my life. And I'm so excited to start another journey into the next one. Thanks everyone for the birthday love ❤️ It means a lot! Here's to 22. 🎉

New blogpost from the way down depths. Here's the start, link in BIO.
When she was at the tomb
and her brother had died
Mary came to you broken, weeping.
if you had been here he would not have died.
If only you had been here.
She wept because she knew you:
You could have made things different. Deathless. Divine.
She wept knowing you:
You had set so many free,
Your power had settled exploding seas:
You were love and power and power and love
And the sun rising in the darkest of nights.
But this night the sun had not risen.
It was her faith in you that broke her heart.
If you had been there... it would not be so.
It was faith, not doubt, that dealt the tragic blow.
She knew and she'd seen and she trusted:
You could put a stop to pain,
And send it howling into the sea.
You could make whole the broken
Undo decay, send them leaping away.
You could liberate the ashamed
And send them home.
But this time the sun had not risen.
• w i l d • be open, dear heart, to the wild moments, to the turns of the well-worn road that eclipses moments of breathtaking beauty. be open to following where the wind of Holy Spirit leads you, into the wilderness beyond, into the unknown, for you cannot fully know & be fully known until you wander into the unknown. and when you return once again to the well-worn road, your eyes will never be the same, they’ll be illuminated with the fire of His life and resilience from His grace and glory.
