Song of the Week

Now, this wasn’t the post that was originally on my mind but, I’ve been thinking about doing something different so, I thought I should share my song of the week with you. These might not necessarily be ‘new’ songs but they’re songs that I’ve a) either been particularly into this weekb) just wanted to share… Continue Reading →

Dreams

Do you ever just go about your day and discover something random, and it just reminds you that God is actually looking out for you and bringing things your way to guide you, and bring you the things you need (just when you need it!)? This week I discovered Dr. Anita Phillips a Pastor and… Continue Reading →

Be Celebrated

It’s that time of the year again where all the couples are out and we’re celebrating love. And for some of us, it can be hard. Especially, for those people who may not have a significant other to celebrate with. But today, I really wanted to talk about letting yourself be celebrated, and somehow it… Continue Reading →

REWIND: Dig and Find Water

God has been so incredibly good to me. When I think of how this blog started, I can only say that he has been leading me on an incredilble journey. Stay tuned. There is still many many many more to come but for now, we’re throwing it back to 2019, and digging up an old… Continue Reading →

Forgiveness, the Measure of Love

26 “But the man fell down before his master and begged him, ‘Please, be patient with me, and I will pay it all.’ 27 Then his master was filled with pity for him, and he released him and forgave his debt. Matthew 18:26-27 (NLT) Matthew 18 from verse 21 onwards gives us an insight into… Continue Reading →

Starting isn’t Always Easy

I always make and note down my thoughts as these usually pan out to be the content that drive my posts. Sometimes the inspiration flows freely and the writing process is easy but sometimes, I have to rack my brain and go back to my notepad (or in this case iPhone notes pages) and find… Continue Reading →

What is Success?

Hi everyone, I hope you’ve had a banging week and are ready to rest and re-energise this weekend. My week for one, ended with a bang last night with the Festival of Praise Manchester (#FOPMAN10) concert last night. To be honest, it was my first time joining in and I’m not going to lie, it… Continue Reading →

The magic in DOING

Hi all, hope we’re doing well?! You may remember from my last post that I mentioned that I’ve challenged myself to read the Bible in 365 days; and as I’ve been doing so I’ve been finding myself getting spiritually stronger. It’s becoming easier to pray, and connect in prayer and I’ve been finding gems and… Continue Reading →

New Year…New Dance

Hi all,Are we excited about this new year or are we excited?! Man, I just thank God we made it. 2020 was a tough year: personally; emotionally in a lot of ways. It was a year which tested my faith but I thank God I made it through, that my faith is still standing. Isn’t… Continue Reading →

Celebration…Celebrations

Seasons greetings everyone! This month is indeed a month to celebrate; not only for the birth of Jesus, but personally (for myself), my birth. I’m super super grateful to God for enabling me to see a new year and enter a new age. I know not everyone has the same privilege as myself, to see… Continue Reading →

Amazing Grace – Love is Divine

‘Tis the season to be jolly. Fa la la la la, la la la la!!! It’s early days but are we free to say that Christmas is upon us??!!! Christmas has been one of my favourite holidays for as far back as I can remember (primarily because I love Christmas songs and the festive spirit)… Continue Reading →

A ‘lil Catch-Up

Hi guys! How’s everyone been?! Sincere apologies for my absence. It’s been a while since I’ve last posted. It’d be a lie if I said life happened… well, to be honest, I have had some things I’ve had to deal with on a personal level. But if I’m to be truthful, the main reason I’ve… Continue Reading →

The Lord will provide

Jehovah Jireh – The Lord will provide… Isn’t it amazing how perfectly this name describes God? And isn’t it even more amazing when we think back to when this name first occurred? We have the case of Abraham in Genesis 22, where God has asked him to give up something precious to him. In exact… Continue Reading →

By Faith; stand

‘But that does not mean we want to dominate you by telling you how to put your faith into practice. We want to work together with you so you will be full of joy, for it is by your own faith that you stand firm.’ 2 Corinthians 1:24 (NLT) I stood on the hill and… Continue Reading →

When Evil Comes

Looking back I would have never classed myself as someone who would agree and state that they struggle with negative thoughts but surprisingly, lately it’s come to my attention that there have been things that I’ve failed to notice/deal with; especially toxic things that have been a part of me for so long that I’d… Continue Reading →

Prepare for the End

Hi all, it’s been a while hasn’t it?! Apologies, but we’re back! Praise God! It’s been a tough week y’all but we thank God for victory. During this week, I’ve been reminded that we, the Church, are in a battle and that we are in the end. The end is not in front of us,… Continue Reading →

Contentment

In a world where we’re constantly bombarded with different images and videos of people living lavish lifestyles; we’re often pushed into a life and frame of mind where we’re urged to #hustle and strive for all these worldly things and items (often as a show of status). As an individual, I see these things, and… Continue Reading →

Catch-up

Hi guys, not so much a blog today as a tune in. I just wanted to check how everyone’s doing, and how we’re all coping? To be honest, this past week has been incredibly busy for me, and I’m just taking this opportunity to rest and build myself up for the coming week. This leads… Continue Reading →

The way, the truth, the life

Inspired by John 14 The cool evening breeze lifted the leaves of an old oak tree as Jesus and his disciples sat under the shade and comfort; taking refuge from the day’s woes and hustle and bustle. The air hung with anticipation and was weighed down with the thickness of the words that the Saviour… Continue Reading →

What is my gift? 🎁

Hi guys, how are we all doing? I hope we’re all well and healthy?! As you may have remembered from last week, I mentioned that I will be branching out to discuss using our gifts. Personally, I have felt for so long that I was meant to be ‘more’; to be something more, something greater…. Continue Reading →

What is ShineALight?

It’s been a long ride! Never in my life did I believe that I could keep a blog for as long as I’ve kept ShineALight. This month commemorates our 1.5 year anniversary (whoop whoop!). It’s been a long time coming, and consistency has been a ride but, I give God all the glory for how… Continue Reading →
