A Month of Loving Kindness

“Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind. Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing.” 1 Peter 3:8-9 This month’s devotional is inspired by an unexpected experience I had this past Sunday when I received an invitation from a friend …

2022: A Year of Purpose & Possibilities

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 Every New Year offers us a wonderful opportunity for a reset. We often plan far in advance, considering what new habits to create or goals to set for the coming year. Some people even create ‘vision boards’, believing that …

The First Domino

Well, the vacation is officially over! You may have noticed that I didn’t post last week and that is because my work life is starting to take over again and I’m finding it challenging to keep up the daily spiritual and wellness practices that I put in place over the past few months of COVID 19.

“What I really want is…” This is one of the suggested prompts from Chapter Two of the Born To Fly course I’ve been doing for the past couple of weeks. For 15 minutes a day, over 6 consecutive days, I have been journaling with the intention of answering that one question. As I go back over my notes from those exercises, it’s bringing up a lot of emotion in my …

The Paradox of Grace

Today, I’m writing from my deck, overlooking Queen Street in The Beach Village (Toronto). It’s raining, but I’m sitting under a small covered area, watching the raindrops fall and listening to the sound of tires whispering and sighing as they roll along the saturated streets beneath me. I came out here because it was warmer than being inside. The A/C in our apartment is a bit too efficient and I …

Born To Fly

A few months ago, I joined a meetup group for Christian entrepreneurs. This was before the COVID19 shutdown, while I was passionately investing my energy in developing a new business idea. Because this new venture kinda came out of nowhere, (more about that later) I couldn’t help but think that maybe God wanted me to take a new direction with my work. For those who don’t know my story, here’s …

Who Are My Heroes?

Sitting down to write today is a bit of a struggle. As I continue to reflect on what really matters in this season and how God is using the current circumstances of my life to build my character, I realize that I’ve been feeling pretty vulnerable and unworthy. I’m doing my best to be honest with myself and transparent to God, while holding myself accountable to the values and priorities …
