I am a twenty something year old daughter of the Most High God and this blog is about my journey to owning my identity in Christ.
You see, for the longest time I fought against the way I always seemed to stick out like a sore thumb, in every setting. I tried nearly everything, just to fit in. Fortunately God stepped in in time and helped me understand that I was meant to be different. And so through faith I began to comprehend that by God’s grace, I am a misfit for Him. Once lost, now found; formerly clueless, now increasingly grounded; I am the graced misfit.
I am by no means perfect, far from it. Each day I’m discovering more and more what it means to be a stranger in this earth. This blog is all about my journey to being the devoted ambassador of Christ that I was created to be.
Do come along with me on this journey and feel free to share your lessons, thoughts, challenges, victories, anything, as we go along.

To be honest, I always feel very uncomfortable about apologising for the same thing repeatedly. When I’m in a situation that calls for apologies that closely follow each other, the temptation is very strong to pretend like nothing happened and just carry on with the programme. Continue reading →
I was quite unsure whether I should put up this post up seeing how September ended five days ago. But my chief human adviser (I’ll leave it to you to guess who that is, Lol) reminded me that “better late than never”. So here we are. 🙂
Sometimes taking a step back is the only way to make real progress. – Wole Talabi
Over the past two weeks or so, I have found the quote above to be very true. I know now that taking a step back when necessary is not something to be afraid of. Not even when it translates to being seemingly missing in action. As Kurt Vonnegut said, “a step backwards after making a wrong turn, is a step in the right direction.” Continue reading →
