HOW COPYING CAN LEAD TO LESS

We were in an appraisal meeting in the ministry- looking circumspectly at the vision and things that have driven it this far. We concluded that there were things we lost because we wanted to copy something else. We concluded that “We must be secure in our model”. One of the things you must pray for in life is the grace […]

DO NOT LET IT SETTLE IN YOUR SPIRIT

I was in a conversation with an elderly one and he referred to a cultural adage. I smiled and asked him whether there was a biblical back up for that adage. He could not find any but wanted to still justify the adage. I gave up. There are things you have accepted that has shaped your thinking and way of […]

HOW TO CUT DOWN WHAT SLOWS YOU DOWN

At a point, I realised that it was getting harder to wake up at night to pray. My schedule daily was heavy no doubt but it was easier to press my phone than to stay in the place of prayer. When I discovered this pattern, I issued myself a warrant- I cut down on my meals at night. I ensured […]

HOW TO GET THE BEST FROM A SPIRITUAL MEETING (Part 1)

Every time we go for the monthly meeting with my Spiritual Father, I take time out to pray for him. I back it up with a text message appreciating him for his labour over our life and ministry.

HOW TO TREAT UNWANTED GUESTS

In the early days of marriage, there was a middle-aged man (who was not even close to the family) who would knock on our door without any notice. We would always receive him with a great sense of hospitality. However, his visit was becoming more frequent and uncomfortable for us. Annoyingly even when he knocks and we keep quiet, he […]

WILL YOU STOP MIDWAY? (The Importance of Commitment)

I travelled with a dear one for a couple of days. While preparing for the return trip, he asked whether he could stop midway while I go ahead with the journey back to base?I smiled and told him that when next I would travel with him, I would ask him if he would be going all the way or he […]
