“I am a journalist. At times, I pull 12-hour shifts with ease as I enjoy my work. The downside? I’m easily swept away by the thrilling chaos of building a new story or interviewing a famous personality. After a point I realized, being anchored in Jesus helps me prioritize what truly matters. And when I cannot deconstruct the chaos of my life, loving Jesus helps me stay calm — I know He is scripting my life...

“I’ve been working as an actor ever since I was 12 years old. And I fiercely pursued success and victory in every thing I did. But every time an ad or a film failed to release, I felt helpless and dejected. It made me bitter and self-loathing. I felt weak and powerless everytime I couldn’t control external factors in my life. But everything changed when I became a follower of Jesus. He set me free from the pressure to perform because I am complete and perfect in him and only in him. I realized Jesus was my ultimate victory. My outlook in life has changed since. Today, it is about learning and growing. In Jesus, I have peace, success and...

For a long time, I had a successful career on the outside and low self-esteem on the inside. I struggled to forgive and I also got used to playing the victim as it heightened my sense of self-worth. It made me feel like I mattered. Over time unforgiveness and low self-esteem consumed me on the inside – like poison. But thankfully, I began to realise Jesus can heal me inside out. As I got to know Jesus deeper, I began to realise that experiencing Him gave me the freedom to worry less about myself. It was liberating. I lost the need to play the victim. I am not perfect and still slip into my old ways at times, but I enjoy a quiet confidence that Jesus is still working on me and won’t ever give up on...

I’m often plagued by fear and insecurities about life. What if I don’t do well at work today? What if I play the wrong note on the keyboard? The ‘what ifs’ of life have kept me up many nights. My lack of control over the road ahead has frustrated me to the point of despair. But waking up every morning to see Jesus and how He loves and leads me in His ways, is freeing me from this overwhelming fear! When I see Him, I have the strength to know that whether I do well or not, whether I am good or not, He will eventually fix me. Through all of life, I can look to Him for the courage to be who I...

I celebrate and idolise the notion of finding the one true love. For me, being single and being happy is often difficult. I do feel a deep need for someone who would love me unconditionally. But, at the same time, I also drown in my fears of many “what ifs.” What if I never find love? What if I end up in a broken marriage? What if I make a wrong choice? What if I grow old alone? And so, I swing from overly romanticising relationships and being overly cynical about them. But, as Jesus is transforming me, I am learning to trust in His unconditional love. In Him, I find peace and rest even in the middle of my fears and anxiety. I still often struggle being single, but I do know I am being transformed by the stronger, greater and relentless ‘love’ of...

In life and at work I am always thinking about what is next. How do I go to the next level? How do I get myself ahead of the curve? How will I get that promotion? How do I ramp up for a world where future technologies change faster than fashion trends? Quite predictably I spent a lot of time making grandeur plans that gets knocked out like straw by even the slightest of winds of change. Not to mention the free add-ons of anxiety and stress that seem to follow such a predicament. Yet despite all of that, I am able to rest peacefully knowing that, because of the Gospel I am never outside God’s plan for me. I get a good night’s sleep being assured that God is author of my work-life and His plans for me are always invested in my eternal...
