We try to save time, to make time, to stop wasting time, to find time, to be on time, to be in time.
We connect time to our understanding of wealth, to our sense of accomplishment, and we connect it to our sense of failure.
I’m reminded of that sinner on the cross next to Jesus. At the last moment, his destiny was changed.
There still is time.
Our happiness is not intrinsic to time-things. You’re not too old to start something new, or to make a career change. It’s not too late to forgive or make your peace. You’ve not wasted time — you’ve learned valuable lessons.
He is faithful to complete the Good Work He started within you.
And that takes time. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Be honest. Be kind. Work diligently. Grow from failure. Keep dancing.
I’m turning 30 in a couple of months, and though there are things I might’ve approached differently if I had a do-over, I’m thankful for every sun spot and wrinkle and gray hair because it’s evidence of BEING ALIVE.
2020 has been weird, but let’s not let the past hold us back from what the future may hold.
2020 has been weird, but let’s not let that keep us from living LIFE.
“I shall not die but live, and shall declare the works and recount the illustrious acts of the Lord.”
— Psalm 118:17
About a week ago my sister, who is 8 months pregnant, was in a car accident. In this video I share their testimony, and some encouragement about the rhythm of life, our purpose in the Kingdom, and the fellowship of believers.
“In the Kingdom, function does not determine purpose. Understanding purpose will determine how we function. This is the Gospel of Identity.”
— Cornelia Grace.
Our testimony will ALWAYS be LIFE and not death — let this be our declaration: God is the Author of Life!
Hartspad is an Afrikaans word meaning “path of the heart”.
Today I got to spend some wonderful hours outside, and did the first trail run (and honestly, first outdoor anything) since lockdown began in May!
I did a combination of walking with Marietjie and Felicity, and jogging back-and-forth, and it was lovely!
The winter scenery was exquisite, and I look forward to getting back on the trails soon!
Hartspad Adventure trails are hiker/runner/MTB friendly, with route markers clearly indicating the trails and difficulty (especially for MTB) along a beautiful course. I was very impressed with the route layout and the visible signage. Keeping fit and healthy is conducive to mental health, and today’s adventures certainly brought a measure of balance!
When I started using #runwildlivefree in 2018, it was because of a life-altering adventure I said yes to — stepping out in faith, and acting in obedience to the call of God on my life.
May you be greatly and abundantly blessed! May you see beauty in every season, and may He be your Source in all things!
May your heart be lead on paths of righteousness. May you be filled and refreshed by Holy Spirit. May you be guided by Him in all things. And may you have the courage to step into the Great Unknown, to pioneer the things that He has called you to!
Love in Christ, Cornelia 🇨🇩🤍🙌🏻
“THE SPIRIT of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good tidings to the meek, the poor, and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up and heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound, [Rom. 10:15.] To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord [the year of His favor] and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, [Matt. 11:2-6; Luke 4:18, 19; 7:22.] To grant [consolation and joy] to those who mourn in Zion–to give them an ornament (a garland or diadem) of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, and failing spirit–that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” — Isaiah 61:1-3 AMPC
During the summer holiday of 2018, I visited Liezl and Arthur at their home in Livingstone, Zambia. I met this lovely family in 2016, when they were visiting my home church in South Africa.
I remember being excited by the way they spoke about Kingdom and ministry and travel, and we kept in touch.
It was during this visit to Zambia, my second trip to Zambia with in a year, that God started speaking to me about strategic relationships.
I’ve been involved in short-term missions since 2010, and for two years, I headed Every Nation Faith City‘s local outreach programs. Mid-2018, I felt the release to quit my day-job, so to speak, and set off in obedience to the call God placed on my life.
In May 2019, I’ll be part of a team of missionaries from all over the world, who’ll attend the Advanced Missions Training on Overland Mission’s Logistical base in Livingstone, Zambia.
I feel that AMT (Advanced Missions Training) is an important steppingstone for the next season, and especially toward my heart for the Gospel in Africa.
You can contribute by partnering with me in prayer, or contributing financially. The total cost for AMT is $6000 (six thousand USD), which includes all expenses such as travel and accommodation for the time I’ll be training in Zambia.
Would you please prayerfully consider making a contribution as partner in the Kingdom?
To join me in Kingdom partnership, you can donate to Overland Missions, and reference my name, or contact me directly, and I’ll provide any information needed.
However God leads you to respond, please know that I have deep appreciation for your partnership and support!
I look forward to sharing more exciting news with you soon!
