Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ – Galatians 6:2 One of the greatest blessings in life is having people around you that love you and care for you. People that champion you and will be there to support you when you need it. When Moses had to keep his arms raised all night to win the battle, it was only through the support of Aaron, his brother, and Hur, a companion, that he was able to do it because when his arms got tired, they stood either side of him and raised his arms for … Continue reading Minute Devotions: A burden shared.
This morning myself and a few of the guys went for a morning run through the streets of Kompong Thom, the area we are currently staying in. We left the hotel at 6am and headed off through the back streets, running past families as they got ready for the day. It was an attack on the senses, to say the least.

As I started getting older, I still wanted to fly but I also wanted the super power of Invisibility. Throughout my teenage years, I desperately wanted to be invisible. I had issues … Continue reading Super Powers
My writing grove is back! It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted anything and it feels good to be writing again; to just purge my soul and my mind through writing is so very therapeutic for me. Over the last couple of weeks, each time I’ve tried to write anything with any substance, the words have failed me. Repeatedly I tried to put my thoughts down only to have them get stuck in my mind and stay there until 3am, by which time I am too sleepy and tired to get up and write them down. I’ve been writing … Continue reading The words are back.
