Having Difficult Conversations

Hello friends! I hope you’re all doing great. I missed my usual soundtrack for the week yesterday. I’m so sorry, I missed the post because I had a horrible headache so I went to bed right after church. I had a chorale (my college choir) concert earlier in the afternoon and I was going to write about my love for music and how one of our songs (in our secular choir) was inspired by the prophet Elijah. The song is called Life thine eyes, and it’s inspired by the story in 1 Kings 19, when Jezebel wanted to kill Elijah because He called down fire from heaven and killed hundreds of ball’s prophets. Elijah fled to the wilderness, and asked God to kill him (yeah yeah, he was suicidal, lonely and frustrated so can we stop with the silence over depression especially in the church?) It’s a really interesting story so please check it out in 1 Kings 19. I’ll condense the story by stating that God came through for Elijah, assured Him of His unwavering love, told him …

Here’s what happened when I tried praying for those who hurt me

Hello friends, I hope you’re doing okay! I certainly am, because I’m on a break from school and it’s been the absolute best. I’ve been surprisingly productive so far. I guess we finally are growing up 🙂  Today I want to write something that’s sort of a sequel to my last post, where I spoke about God defending Moses when he (Moses) was accused by Aaron and Miriam. Someone (very kindly) left a comment asking about praying for those who offend you/ hate you and asked what I think about it. Here is an excerpt from the comment: “I totally agree with all you have written, although I have always found the whole praying for your enemy thing counterintuitive. I feel it’s not natural for you to want to forgive someone who hurt you. It feels almost impossible.I am confused because I find it hard to imagine how sincere one can be in doing that.” In this post, I’m writing completely from my personal experience. I did not read about this in any book. I …

A Photo Project

Hello friends, I hope you’re all doing well For today, I have our weekly soundtrack and a few pictures I took a few days ago while playing with my phone camera. I think the pictures look quite decent. What say you? I’m thinking of writing short poems to attach with each of these pictures. I’m just quite shy to share the poems I write, but God will deal with that soon 😀 I’m not sharing anything personal today because I already shared a lot in my last post 😀 I wrote a few random personal things and I hope you loved it. I did enjoy working on that post quite a lot, and I’d like to do more spontaneous personal posts like that more often. Here is your song for the week. It’s a little bit of a different song but I really like it and I hope you do also! Just incase you’re wondering, I took all the pictures myself, but I have to upload them at that size because they don’t look as good …
