That little ‘low battery’ sign on your phone which always pops up at the worst time is also a reminder that everything we create runs down or comes to an end. Sure, you can charge the battery but eventually it’s useless.

You are different. God didn’t create you to come to an end. God created you to live for eternity.

“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me will live even if he diesDo you believe this?'” (John 11:25-26

Knowing that you will live forever, should change how you approach today.



Stop the taxi. Get off the treadmill. Put down the phone. Switch off the Play Station. Close the laptop. Stop studying (for now).

You were not created to be busy all the time. You were created for rest.

“Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he (Jesus) said to them, ‘Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest'”.
(Mark 6:31 –

The gift of rest is to remind you that you are not just a human ‘doing’ but a human-being.



People are out here looking at who has the best instafeed, getting the most prizes in school and sports, who has the best winged liner, the list goes on forever… “but the Lord looks at the heart” (see 1 Samuel 16:7)

When God sees you, He sees your heart and if you’ve invited Jesus into your heart then that is who He sees.
Wow, that’s amazing!

What or who do you think God sees when He looks at your heart?

Read1 Samuel 16:7 here:



When I was younger, I wanted to have any job where I would have the least interaction with people as possible. I did not see myself as capable of having a people-related job. Now I’m studying in the humanities department, which is all about people! How did I get from point A to point B?

God took me on this journey to help me see what He saw in me all along. He wanted to do a work in and through me and knew that I would be capable through Him.

God has this amazing plan for you.
You can do all things through Jesus who strengthens you.
