Passion, Pain & Purpose

When it comes to finding our purpose, many, including myself, are caught up in the wrong things. We misunderstand what it is we’re asking God for and end up working towards goals that haven’t been destined for us. Then we start wondering why things aren’t working out the way we feel they should. People of all ages struggle with identifying… Read more →

Undeserving?

A problem I noticed amongst many of my friends, especially those of faith, is that they often feel undeserving. Why? The ‘problem’ with faith/religion is that it gives a long list of things that you shouldn’t do. This isn’t an entirely bad thing, rules are needed in life. But committing certain sins led them to believe that they were no… Read more →

Justifying Jealousy?

When I witness someone doing something I wish I could do, my conscience registers this feeling as jealousy; but this isn’t necessarily a trait I’d like to associate myself with and so in order to help me sleep better at night, I’ve frequently asked myself: is jealousy really a bad thing? Jealousy: feeling resentment against a rival, a person enjoying success or advantage, etc., or… Read more →
