5 more Worship/Christian songs to get you through isolation.

So a couple of weeks back, I wrote about 5 songs to listen to during this time of isolation, (you can find a link to that post here 5 Worship/Christian songs to get you through isolation.) with the goal of somehow trying to keep the focus on God during this troubling time, well with the isolation still in full effect at the time of writing, I thought it’d be a good idea to do a follow up to that post! I’ll provide links to each song, so feel free to check them out! Continue reading “5 more Worship/Christian songs to get you through isolation.”

Corona-virus: holding onto hope.

Corona-virus: holding onto hope.

So, let’s talk about the Coronavirus. I’m sure everyone is tired of talking about the outbreak and, I get it, it’s been a real challenging time. It’s been a time of panic, not just because of the virus, but everything surrounding it, from the closure of pretty much all public spaces, to the imposed isolations and quarantines, and let’s not forget the stockpiling of scared shoppers, making the supermarkets so much more stressful than ever before. The world is in a state of panic and despair and it’s understandable, but it’s times like this we need to turn it back round to focus on God. Continue reading “Corona-virus: holding onto hope.”

Still and small.

Still and small.

That’s for a number of reasons, some of them are fairly simple, other commitments, not feeling inspired. Others are more personal. But I started this blog with the intent of walking alongside those struggling. Life after Darkness is more than just a title of a blog to me.

There’s no shame in being lost.

2019 has been a really weird year for me. I have so much to be grateful for but to call it an easy year would be simply false. For every moment of joy, there’s been a hardship, for every smile, there’s been a tear, for every moment of clarity, I’ve felt just as lost. but this isn’t a post of discontent, more one of realizing that, actually there’s no shame in being lost.

Be the change you want to see.

Be the change you want to see.

So in the last post, I went through King Kalidoscope’s latest album “Zeal” (check it out if you haven’t yet, the link will be at the end) and it got me thinking, what comes next? After we lose the cynicism, when we come back to that place of child-like faith, where do we go next? After getting back to that place of passion and, well, zeal, how do we keep pushing on in our everyday lives, in a way that shows the glory of the Lord?
