Set Up For A Miracle

Lulu / 18 Sep, 2019

I know I’m not speaking for myself in saying what I’m about to say next, but I will, just for the sake of not putting words in peoples mouths, so here goes: I am and have been waiting for a miracle, for God to move heaven and earth in this one particular situation I’m facing. Now that you’re all like “YES! Me too!” — with your permission I will now speak for us all, because I truly feel like a lot of us today are in the same boat; you know that boat that Jesus and His disciples were in…

OVER-THINKERS ANONYMOUS

Lulu / 4 Jul, 2019

Raise your hand if you’ve been personally victimised by over-thinking? Yup, same. In fact, as I write this I have just pulled myself out of my own personal mind gym where I was swinging back and forth on the monkey bars with thoughts that are in all honesty not even close to real and even more so, highly unlikely. And even though I know that, or at least have now told myself that, I still couldn’t quite help myself. I woke up with a nagging thought poking at my mind, and before I knew it, I was having an argument…

ANSWER ME THIS

Lulu / 19 Jun, 2019

I’m sure by now those of you who keep up with our blog know us for one thing: being deep, and we love it — we love that this is a space we can do that; a space we can pour out on and ponder life many issues on, and at the same time do a lot of growing and learning when it comes to certain things. I know for one, my topics lately have been those I have learnt through and those I have needed to learn something from because every issue has been one I struggle with in…

SECOND CHANCES

Lulu / 5 Jun, 2019

I actually need your help on this one. Where do we stand with the idea of second chances? It doesn’t really matter where the second chance is applied; be it relationships, experiences or even when it comes to offering yourself one; do you lean to or do you lean against? Personally, I don’t know. Experience has taught me that when it comes to second chances, I should not be a fan. That seeing the best in people and giving them the benefit of the doubt is not always the smartest decision, that when they say “when a person shows you…

TWO 50 CENT COINS

Lulu / 22 May, 2019

I was listening to this podcast on marriage the other day (sorry I can’t remember which one it was now, otherwise I would have dropped the link) and the guy was speaking on value — recognising your spouses value, and also in it, illustrating that even though we are different, each person is valued the same (particularly in Gods eyes) — and when I was thinking about it, the questions he posed to illustrate what he was talking about are excellent in not only digging deep and changing your perspective of marriage to the way God sees it, but also…

FEEL IT, TO HEAL IT

Lulu / 8 May, 2019

Maybe it’s just me, and please do correct me if I’m wrong, but these days it seems like people just don’t want to feel their feelings anymore. Bad feelings; they run away from, good feelings; they are so afraid of losing, that they prevent themselves from even feeling them at all. It’s like feelings have become this thing that people take pride in not having or want to protect themselves from. Personally, I know that struggle. Due to some unforeseen circumstances and things not happening the way I thought they would over the last couple of years (I won’t get into…

WHAT IS GOOD ENOUGH?

Lulu / 24 Apr, 2019

So because we are among friends here, I have a confession to make: I have writers block. I know this is not what you clicked on this post to read, and that’s my bad. But I promise this is not clickbait, there is an eventual point to this. But, before we get to that, I really felt I needed to share my bad case of writers block with the group. Maybe I should actually use this as a disclaimer to what follows; you know, just in case. But in the spirit of honesty, I just thought I’d let you know…

AIMING AT NOTHING

Lulu / 10 Apr, 2019

I was having a conversation with Gugu the other day and naturally our conversation shifted to faith; (if you had a chance to listen to our podcast series, you’ll know that faith is something we talk together about A LOT, and thank God for faith sisters because whew chile, the journey is rough!) and the conversation basically led to where we each stand faith wise at the moment. When it comes to her I think she’s pretty much laid it out for you in her recent posts about where she is, where she isn’t and where she is going —…

WHAT DO YOU HAVE

Lulu / 27 Mar, 2019

Recently at church, one of our pastors was preaching about the story in 2 Kings 4:1-7 which has fast become one of my favourite stories in the bible. It’s called The widow’s olive oil. The story is about a woman who recently lost her husband and he left her with quite a few debts. She has no money and no way to pay the debts so the debt collectors want to take her two children away. So she goes to Elisha desperately asking for his help. He asks her what she has in her house, to which she replies nothing…

We Need To Fix It.

Lulu / 13 Mar, 2019

Linda, listen, honey. Today’s post might not be something you’re used to from me— mainly because this may be a quick one, but also because it will be quite a ranty one too. I know I tend to rant sometimes, so maybe that one isn’t too far off from what you’re used to, but this time I don’t think I have a positive spin on things, or much of a silver lining… there just exists a problem and we need to fix it. So here it is: International Women’s Day was just the other day, and you won’t believe the…
