Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. That is what 2 Corinthians 4 verse 16 says. This however is not a natural disposition for many of us. Many of us are like Doctor Strange in infinity war. Except instead of worrying for a moment, this is our permanent state of mind. Inspite of the fact that we know that Jesus says of his yoke, it is easy and that his burden is light.
There are enough voices of fear, doom and gloom-and maybe as you read this, you are working from home or have been unable to earn an income now, and it is imperative for me as a believer to remind of eternal truths that will stir up faith in you to overcome...
Somehow, insidiously, an inferiority complex had nested itself in my view of myself-I saw myself as missing an element, an elusive component I could not define, that would otherwise lead me to be effective in my role as leader both at home and work. I could conjure up the dream that said I would see exceeding and abundant provision from God, but I did not see myself as capable of taking the necessary steps to get there. In summary, I realised that I thought of myself as not enough-inadequate to meet the demands of either my current situation or the height of my dreams...
Sometime during this past week, it occurred to me that the Bible is divine; God-breathed and given. Since becoming born again maybe at around 14, I have never doubted that the Bible is God's word. I knew that, but this week it meant something a little different-more personal and precious to me...
So today, my mind is wrapped up in Ecclesiastes 10 vs 1, and what it implies in the life of a believer. I am wrapped up because at the core of my heart, i realise that this means there is no room for "pet peeves" and tolerable sin to the believer.
The part that says "God heard the cry of the boy" jumped out at me, and as I took a few moments to reflect, i became profoundly aware that the story of Ishmael is to us, a testament of the abounding mercy and love of God. It is a glimpse into the workings of God that should give us confidence when we pray.
Hi. I am back, after a tumultuous start to the year, and almost letting go of this viaion I have for this blog, I am back. Back with the quiet confidence of an athlete before a race: who breathes in and out slowly and reminds themselves that the arena is not where champions are made,... Continue Reading →
believed in the beauty of what a relationship could be (I still do) and I held on to a conception of blissful companionship in the arms of a woman who would be to my heart. The thought of how it would feel to hold in my arms someone with whom I could completely be me---and have my "us against the world love story" would at the same time be an equivocating giver of strength and sorrow....
So for starters, yes this is kind of drawn from a hashtag that has been trending over the past few days. Like many hashtags, it has its very funny takes, absolutely dry ones and those that are so-so. I have taken the liberty to share a few of my favourites in this post; though some... Continue Reading →
So I know it has been a while; longer than the one post per week target that floats in my mind since I last posted. Whilst that does not sound too good; I feel optimistic about what the rest of this year and the future holds. And that about introduces what I want to talk... Continue Reading →
So it was Valentine’s Day yesterday; and it may have been a great day or it may have been just like any other day. Whether or not one is a believer; that is not the reason I am writing this blog today. I am writing to the person who yesterday, maybe felt lonely; unlovely... Continue Reading →

Love I want to continue today has a language both to the loved and from the one who loves. It is a language that is almost like music, that resonates within itself with tones of peace, confidence and freedom and I desire to share a bit more on this.Love is patient, it is kind, it...

It is a bit of open secret that the society we live in today has problems. Divorce rates have sky-rocketed both in the world and in the church, cases of murder, rape, strife continue to fill our news headlines. Extremist goups, Boko-Haram, ISIS cause chaos everywhere in their attempt to bring the world to what... Continue Reading →
