I took the bus to Paris. I’d always said I would get there and I did. It was the beginning of July, and I arrived from London with one bag, first job as replacement staff for the summer holidays. As soon as I stepped out of the Métro at Boulevard Voltaire and asked a gendarme for directions, I knew I wasn’t going back. And I didn’t.

Heat and cafés

smells of pastis and coffee

endless summer

God the compassionate father

TafadzwaPrivyBlog

By Tafadzwa Hove

Isaiah, “For a brief moment i abandoned you, but with deep compassion I will bring you back.”

No condition is permanent. That situation you are facing as a Christian is not meant to destroy you ;it may be there to strengthen your relationship with God or to prepare you for a new level in life.

He is a merciful Father, He will not let your challenges devour you but in time He will have mercy on you.

In mercy, He has called us and healed us. In mercy, He has called us and delivered us. In mercy, He has called us and blessed us. In mercy, we are not excluded.
