Top 7 Bible study hacks to help you get focused

I love reading and studying the Bible, but if I’m honest, many times, I find it hard to get into or really concentrate on it. There may be various reasons for my wandering thoughts, but over the years I have found certain Bible Study hacks, that have made it easier to really focus. And maybe they can help you too. Without further ado, let me share my top 7 Bible Study hacks: 1. Read often One of my favourite sayings is: “Bible Reading is like drinking Coke”. I don’t know about you, but for me, if I stop drinking coke for a few weeks, my craving for it also disappears and I can easily go months without it. But as soon as I drink it once or twice, it’s like my palate suddenly discovers it […]

Hole in the wall looking at three crosses

What’s in a name? The reason we are “In the Gap Clothing”

It has happened a few times that people confuse us with another clothing brand called “GAP Clothing”, which always makes me smile. Our names are similar, but the thought behind it is very different. “In the gap” has become a somewhat popular Christian term, usually connected with prayer and intercession. Someone might say; “I feel like we need to stand in the gap for so-and-so”, meaning that we need to pray for that person. The Origin The idea comes from times when a city’s wall was its protection from enemies. Of course if there was a hole or a gap in the wall, the city would be vulnerable. Someone who would be willing to “stand in the gap” of that wall would be willing to take the enemies’ blows to protect those inside. The idea […]

Be Strong and Courageous Christian Kids T shirt and mens t shirt - father and son on beach

3 Things I have learned about being courageous in these crazy times we live in…

Since the roller coaster of Covid and lockdown began 4 months ago, I felt many fears that I have been unaware of, starting to surface. Like when you shake a coke bottle and all the bubbles start to rise to the top. They form themselves into “What ifs” in my mind. And dwelling on these “what ifs” become overwhelming and paralysing. I am sure, that like me, you also might need some extra courage to face the world in these extraordinary times we are living in. So, I want to share with you 3 things that I have learned about being courageous. 1. Do it afraid It’s always interesting to me that when God spoke to Joshua in this famous verse, that He actually issued a command: “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and […]

In the Gap Clothing – Our Lockdown Testimony

We are at Day #131 of Lockdown in South Africa, and as we have started to adjust to the new normal and going about our lives again I reflected on how faithful God has been in this journey. As a family, working from home,  we have been pouring our lives into In the Gap Clothing for the last 9 years seeing God grow His Kingdom and spreading the Word through Christian Clothing. As of last year, we were able to employ 3 others (besides my husband and I) to help with all the ins and outs of the business. Covid happened… In the beginning of 2020, when Riaan started reading up on the news of a new sickness spreading in Wuhan, China, I was oblivious, thinking that down here in the Southern point of Africa, […]

Covid-19 Young man with Christian T-shirt

Covid-19 – An opportunity for the gospel like never before!

Early in January when my husband started reading articles online about the Covid-19 virus that broke out in Wuhan, China I was only half-interested. I could not understand why he would want to know everything about the spread and effect of this sickness. I was convinced that down here in sunny South Africa, we would remain untouched and life would go on as normal. How wrong I was. Covid-19 has since spread globally at a rapid pace and affected roughly 92% of countries worldwide. Most of the world right now is experiencing a forced lockdown or quarantine and people, economies and businesses all over are suffering because of it. I’m not sure any of us can say that we have been untouched by this pandemic. I’m also becoming more and more certain that in a […]

How should we respond to the Coronavirus pandemic as Christians?

The Covid-19 virus, that originated in Wuhan, China on 31 December 2019 has taken the world by storm. With over 218 000 people infected worldwide and more than 8 800 deaths recorded * , it’s no wonder the world is in a frenzy. “Coronavirus” as most people refer to it, is the topic that’s on everyone’s lips,  whether you watch the news, catch up on social media, get in to grocery line conversations or listen to your mother reminding you to wash your hands. On Sunday, President Cyril Ramaphosa declared a national state of disaster in South Africa, closing schools, setting limits on travel, prohibiting gatherings of over 100 people among other stipulations. No one remains unaffected by the fallout of what is happening around the world and in our country. Businesses and individuals around […]
