A Time and Season of Change

“He changes times and seasons…” (Daniel 2:21a)

There are moments when words simply cannot do justice in describing an experience. This is our attempt to record an overview of an entire season’s worth of such moments.

As you read the following post, we pray that the Lord will speak to your heart about pursuing Him in a deeper level in your faith journey. May this spark a deep hunger in your heart to know the heart of God and experience Him in a fresh way in your life.

A Boxing Day message to my stalker

There are some entries that I write for my eyes only, but I pray that releasing this post will bring about a learning opportunity for those that need it.

So…(*deep breath)…here goes.

Not too long ago, I had a strange feeling that there was someone lurking in my shadow. At first, I thought it was sheer paranoia on my part.

Sadly, he never woke up from his nap.

Love conquers all

Latha - The Early Years, India (1996)

In a tiny clay hut in an impoverished village in South India, a couple is faced with a daily struggle to make ends meet and raise their two young daughters.

Many days, there was nothing to eat. There was no one they could turn to for help or support.

One day, the youngest daughter developed a dangerously high fever. There was no doctor or medical aid in her village or the surrounding area to help. There was no one to assess or treat the little girl’s condition in time. She quickly succumbed to the illness.

Overcome with grief over the loss of her only sibling to a curable illness, the now only daughter was determined to become a nurse to help her village with medical needs. Beyond the financial need for her family’s basic necessities and her education, there was a deep yearning in this young girl’s heart for someone to talk with; someone she could call friend.
