Hold onto God

When Covid-19 was at its highest, we ran a quick survey on Roadtrip247 and asked the people what issues they thought young people were struggling with. These are the top eight: Will I pass this year? I’m afraid my family will fall ill. I’m afraid someone close to me will die. I’m afraid of the […]

Trust trust

What does trust mean to you? I would say that trust is the knowledge that someone will do what he or she has promised. I trust that you will remain faithful in your marriage. I trust that if you say you won’t take money under the counter, you won’t do it. I trust that you […]

You’re a beneficiary

Long before her death, my mom one day called all of us children together at her house. She had decided that everything that would eventually end up being part of her estate would find an owner that day. So, all of us, from the eldest to the youngest, took turns at choosing something, which was […]

Trust shot to pieces

I received an email from Ester: Thank you so much for this message, it is so right for me today. I have someone to whom I would like to send these messages, but I don’t always know where and how to contact her. It is my daughter. She’s been addicted to drugs for seven years. […]

God’s goodness overflows

I have a friend who did something wrong many years ago. One Friday afternoon, a policeman knocks on the door and hands him a warrant for his arrest. He ends up behind bars the whole weekend. What happened to him that weekend is simply too horrible to put into words. The Monday he came to […]

Must Jesus do it again?

When something goes wrong, we quickly wonder where God is. When it hurts and we’re full of pain, we want to know where God went. But He is there. He is always there. It might just be because of the hurt and pain that we are blinded to God’s presence in our lives. It is […]

God will never abandon you

We’re on a depression awareness tour in Namibia. As a tourist, one sees the country differently. You hear the concerns about the country’s economy and can actually identify with that, because the levels of anxiety are quite high in our country. We don’t know exactly what the future holds for the country. But again and […]
