Exchange worry for trust.

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” Philippians 4:6-7 (https://bit.ly/2CBQ1N8)

Worry says, ‘I’m in control.’ And that’s what causes most of our anxiety and our frustration because we give ourselves power that’s not ours to bare. In fact, it becomes a burden because the control of our lives should be given to God. Learn to put this into practice, whenever you get scared or anxious, PRAY. Give it over to God. Point it out to Him. Allow him to lead you to the peace found in Him.


You are valuable.

“And the Lord God made clothing from animal skins for Adam and his wife.” Genesis 3:21 (https://bit.ly/2VMCyuf)

Sometimes life can be messy. At times this is because of our own doing and other times because of unforeseen circumstances. In this passage of scripture Adam and Eve had been banished from the garden, but the powerful thing is how God still clothed them. Not wanting them to walk around in shame, still wanting them to know that He will continue to take care of them wherever they may find themselves.

So remember, no matter how chaotic things get, you still matter to God.
You are valuable to Him.


Remember who you are in Christ

“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people” 1 Peter 2:9 (https://bit.ly/2DzrVU6)

These first few months have been nothing short of a wild ride. Fear and anxiety have almost gained a permanent seat in most of our hearts. When fear and anxiety are the lens in which you see the world, you are guaranteed a life of misery.

We need to remember who Christ has called us to be especially now – today and for eternity. We are still who He says we are. That should be the lens we choose to see through.



A small group of us in Matric conducted a social experiment. We chose a perfectly healthy Grade 8 boy and would, over a good few days, ask him: “Are you feeling ok? You look sick.” He was absent the next week

“Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking,” [MSG] “but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” [NIV] (Romans 12:2).

The Devil wants to neutralise and weaken your character by getting into and infecting your head. Think about what you think about.

Jesus designed you to be “more than a conqueror” (Romans 8:37). Who will you believe?
