TENTS IN THE WIND

 Let the dawning day bring me a revelation of your tender, unfailing Love. Give me light for my path and teach me, for I trust in you Psalm 143:8 As I sit here this morning with my cup of tea, I ponder the limbo that I currently live in. For weeks now, this feeling of […]

FLY LITTLE BIRD

Failure is a concept that I do not grasp very easily. I consider myself to be incredibly productive and have a list of goals and dreams that I am so passionate about achieving. I sometimes find it difficult to discern that point where I am walking in step with God or if I am pushing […]

DARING TO DREAM

“What do I do to live into the person that Jesus made me to be? Do you know what the answer was for me? I did stuff!” June has been one of those months that has sat incredibly heavy upon my heart. Social Justice is an area of life that quite simply breaks me. From […]

AMIDST THE SILENCE

Hurry is a violence on the soul.” This is a quote from John Mark Comer’s remarkable book “The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry”. So many times I get myself somewhat lost in the depths of a book, come out the other side of it and declare “This changed my life” only to forget the quality of […]

THE YEAR OF SURRENDER

“Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin” 2020 has officially landed upon us. My last night of 2019 consisted of enjoying an annual thai tradition of lighting lanterns and setting them off into the wild, my poor little lantern set alight and frazzled to the floor in […]

THE LAVISH BLESSING OF LOVE

No matter which part of the world we come from, being a woman brings with it an array of different connotations. In many parts of the world it brings a massive element of shame. Many women are still deemed as second class citizens, others are simply branded inhuman. We see the rise of FGM practices […]

TIME TO SING A NEW SONG

The move has officially been made! After 2 months of touring churches, presenting the vision and spending time with loved ones. One chapter closed whilst another began to unfold. I stepped onto that plane, once again into a sea of unknown adventures. Much prayer and discernment had gone into the past few years and now […]

TRAIPSING THROUGH TRANSITION

Transition –“  Mid 16th century from French, or from Latin transitio(n-), from transire ‘go across’.” Oxford English Dictionary It’s fair to say I have entered a period of transition . I have found myself waiting for an exact moment where I feel I have entered this period, but truth be told I’m already in the […]

STEPPING OUT OF THE BOAT

This journey of mine has been nothing short of a little crazy. With many ups and down along the way, this is a story of love and redemption in a way I never could have imagined…. this is my news..

WALKING IN MY STRENGTH

 A month has roughly 30 days give or take. Within that short time span who would know that so much could happen? I feel like that is my life these days, no two days are the same and I’m ok with that. I think things are in a constant state of change and it’s never […]

THE PAIN OF TRANSFORMATION

Of course you can’t change your past and to some extent it will always be a part of you but something that God has taught me is to own my story

REFLECTIONS FROM A CYNIC…

“Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies. Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life. She brings him good not harm all the days of her life” Proverbs 31:10-12 This verse cropped up on numerous occasions the day of Kevin and Lily’s wedding, confirming […]

DEFINING BEAUTY

I couldn’t begin to tell you where the time has gone. It feels like ages since I last wrote a blog. I can feel within me a slight emptiness as I have not been able to exercise my love of writing for some time . Seasons change, and I do believe there is a season […]

A HEART’S CRY

“I had to get myself into the presence of God because what I have come to realise is that just because we feel something it doesn’t mean that it is reality. Just because I didn’t feel God’s goodness doesn’t mean that he isn’t good.”

WHO DO YOU SAY I AM?

  In our hearts and our heads, we are usually facing some form of battle. A internal struggle if you will. After weeks, months and possibly even years of processing and trying to figure it all out, what I have learnt, and am attempting to rest in is that it all comes down to Love. […]

LOVING THROUGH THE LOSS

  Leaving the country you were born and raised in for new horizons has quite simply got to be one of the most challenging, rewarding and yet beautiful things I can say I have done to date. When you leave the familiar of your comfort zone for pastures new there is no telling of the […]

CREATE IN ME A CLEAN HEART

The month of March has swiftly taken me from one season to another, primarily from mobile to immobile. As many know I was blessed with a fractured big toe. How strange that I would use the word “blessed”. Had I of written this piece a couple of weeks ago I would have expressed an entirely […]

A CELEBRATION OF FEMININITY

  Countless articles, blogs and books have been written on this, I know, I am so aware. All coming at this topic from an array of different angles and yet I felt I needed to add a contribution. Out of all the things I write about, ponder over, discuss, it all comes down to this, […]

AN EXPRESSION OF LOVE

I had heard the stories and anticipated a picture In my mind, but nothing would prepare for the emotions that God was to stir up in me when I visited the IDC. This is Bangkok’s Immigration detention centre. If you have overstayed your visa or been involved in any level of trouble you will find […]

JOY COMES IN THE MORNING

  As I write this I am coming close to my 1 year anniversary in Thailand. I couldn’t tell you how it got to pass me by so quickly. It’s like I went to sleep and woke up 1 year earlier, however it’s been one heck of a bumpy sleep!  I am at a stage […]

A DECLARATION OF FREEDOM

“I am free” These three words sent tingles down my spine and Goosebumps upon my arms. Freedom, A word so very much taken for granted and yet flows from the heart of *Lin. As she proclaims these words for all to hear she does so with a shy smile and strong look in her eye. 3 […]

AN OBJECT OF DESIRE

  Today it is on my heart to write about the goings on of an outreach. A weekly event which plays strongly on my heart. The emotions that run through me are incredibly mixed. The love I feel on these outreaches is sometimes incontrollable. It spills out of me. To be able to go and […]

FROM THE WINGS OF A BUTTERFLY…

  “When the Son set’s you free, you will be free indeed” I had this verse spoken over me when I was in my late teens and yet I had grappled with it for many years. Christ was in my heart but I did not possess this sense of freedom that the bible claimed. I […]

LIVING ROOM INTIMACY

I sit down to write this blog with a full heart. As I look back on the month I just feel a sense of love and overwhelming peace. I have just this evening come back from Church feeling inspired, feeling more than ever that I wish to give God my all, drop everything at his […]

KNEELING AT THE FEET OF JESUS

Why are we so afraid of the stillness? Perhaps when I write this I write from my heart. For many, they welcome the quiet. If you’ve lived a day in Bangkok it isn’t rare to want to hide yourself in the confines of somewhere silent, somewhere away from people, even if just for a minute. […]

BEAUTY FROM THE ASHES

Spiritual warfare. This word has so much attached to it. Underestimate it and it’s the devil’s way in, obsess about it and you forget that we have a king in whom we can rest assured is fighting out battles. Much of march and sometime into April, the enemy decided he was going to wheedle his […]

LOVE HAS NO PRICE TAG

  Whoever said being a Christian was easy? I’m not sure anybody did. For most of my time as a Christian, I have spent a large part of it directing God and telling him where to place my own footsteps. I knew my plan and I needed God to get on board with it. Luckily, it […]

WALKING BLIND INTO THE ARMS OF GOD …

“My sacrifice O God is a broken spirit, a broken and contrite heart, you God will not despise.” Two Planes and three time zones later, I arrive in Bangkok. Here I am, after all this time, all this preparation. Many moons ago it feels, I walked into the office of BMS, a nervous woman with […]

A ONE WAY TICKET TO THE UNKNOWN

A one-way ticket to the unknown “So, how are you feeling?” This question, the question I must have heard more times than I can count. At this point I’m supposed to give a succinct answer and be on my merry way. How do I feel for this next season in my life? It’s mix of emotions […]

THE VOICE THAT SHOOTS YOU DOWN

Ever get that voice in your head that tells you that you can’t do it? It’s way past your ability and God has for sure made some kind of mistake? I do. It happens regularly. It’s these times I have to straighten my crown and remember whose daughter I am. Last Tuesday as part as […]

GOD… IT’S TIME TO TALK!

  From Personal Training to preparing myself for the Lord’s work starting by 3 months of living in community with one another. How was this going to pan out? Transition, everybody talks about that dreaded word. A word that I refused to acknowledge making my first week at IMC particularly interesting. “For those God foreknew […]
