OF FOOD, MY HEART AND THE REPENTANCE

When I saw the amount of food in the kitchen prepared and I noticed that my wife was also packing to send to one or two others, the flesh in me protested- “We are in tough times. We should ensure that the little we have is for us only. Who knows how long this will last?” I rebuked the thought […]

ASK AS LED NOT AS FELT

It was concluded already that we were going to request for something that we needed. We had set money apart for payment. It was deeply needed. In the place of prayer, the Lord said “Do not ask for it”. It did not make any sense but we obeyed. Some months later, the Lord said, “Ask for it now”. We went […]

GOD SPOKE THROUGH OLIVE

Olive was lying beside me. She had been sleeping for a couple of hours. When she woke up, turned and sat down, the first thing she picked up was her mum’s Bible that was beside her. It did not strike me until the Lord spoke to my heart through that action- “Never stop having a heart like this. Let my […]

“GOD, SEND SOMEONE TO ME”

I was teaching somewhere about 10 years ago and I was inspired to say to them, “Tomorrow morning, you will return with testimonies that you can hear the Lord”. The next day, I met two young girls at the entrance weeping. I asked what happened. One of them mentioned that last night she told God, “God, send me a word […]

“WALK THROUGH” NOT “RUN”

I hated it whenever Dad calls me at night to pick up his Panasonic Radio in his room. The dark corridor between the living room and his room was always a place of dread for me. It became worse when a brother closed to our family died. I would imagine that ghosts would just emerge from the walls and appear […]

DO NOT COME OUT EMPTY HANDED

A couple of years ago while we were still kids, there was a very tough season in the country- people used saw-dust to cook. It was a season of dire needs. Families went through huge hardship. In our home, things were not too different. There were no pieces of meat on our meal. Mum came up with a plan- she […]

LOVE AMBASSADORS

Danielle came back from school saying that there was another girl in her class who was regularly making “curse” signs at her by spreading out her five fingers. She tried to demonstrate it. I asked my daughter whether she would love me to teach her how to respond. She answered in the affirmative. I told her that even though she […]

LEARNING BRINGS YOU REST

After two years in ministry, I noticed a pattern. Because of the setting where I pastored as a young man, I had a different congregation almost every year- virtually everyone is looking forward to greener pastures in cities. Friends, it troubled my heart. Folks come in raw and just right after they begin to catch spiritual sparks and you begin […]

NO EMBARRASSMENT

I was driving for a conference about two years ago when Road Safety officials stopped me for routine checks. They told me that I had a worn tyre. I acknowledged it as true but explained that I would change it as soon as I had the means. The officer I explained to still penalised me. Another officer then came saying, […]
