"Be still and know that he is God"


27/3/17

Hi Everyone! Hope you are well I know it has been a while. So since the last time I sent an update God has really challenged me to "Be still and know that he is God". It is something some of you may have heard before or something you try to practice. For others it may mean taking time out to reflect and be at peace with yourself. Now although this sounds serene and perfect in reality it is quite different. For me it was about finding time and space between my usual activities with various organisations and churches; as well as within and outside of my interactions with my new found friends and family. However there have been days that are less hectic where I may be filing some paperwork or putting together some Sunday school booklets. These days where time and space to "Just be" are more easily available I have found to be my biggest challenge. I am often consumed by a feeling of low productivity and questions about what more I could be doing. I often become so caught up in what I am not doing that I forget to be truly present in that moment and that specific task. The struggle between being and doing is something we all have to constantly wrestle with. It is also something that once aware of we should Intentionally try to find a balance of it in our lives. Although I am not quite there yet, I have taken the first step in acknowledging the tension. The second step is to now fully embrace each moment as it comes. To appreciate the silence, to trust God is talking to me through that and to be attentive to the spirit. In this I also hope to be moved into further action or to truly just "Be still and know that he is God". Until next time... Blessings, Peace and Love. Xx

Today marks the official first day of my journey. I am feeling well equipped for my departure today, having had a wonderful time at church with my friends and family at the weekend.
Hi Everyone, This is my 11th day in Jamaica (27/01/17). It is taking me a while to adjust to my new environment however during this time I have made some great contacts. I am staying at the United Theological College of the West Indies.
Hi again!! This Monday will mark my 3rd week here in Kingston Jamaica. I am amazed at how, even in such a short period of time, I have had much to reflect on and be grateful for.
Hi everyone! I know it has been a while since the last update but I am very pleased to be sharing more of my journey here in Jamaica with you all. The first thing I am sure some of you are already aware of is the work I have been doing with women
Hi all, It has been a busy and reflective past two weeks and couple of days. It is also my 3rd month here in Jamaica so I am half way through this amazing experience.
