WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN THERE IS A DELAY? (Part 2)

I wonder what was going through the mind of Joseph as they walked him into the prison- “God, is this my dream? This is not what I saw”. As the doors shut down the light from outside, Joseph must have had to draw light from within. What do you do when there is a delay? Make sure you wait for […]

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN THERE IS A DELAY? (Part 1)

One of the things that a believer must handle wisely is delay. Delays can lead to discouragement and discouragement can lead to bad decisions. So what should I do when there is a delay? First, be sure you are not misinterpreting the season. Moses was on the mount taking instructions for the Israelites. They were right there at the base […]

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE TIRED?

A dear mother was recuperating. She needed to have some break from the routine of ministry. She went to stay in a new area. In about a month, she had started a children’s Bible club- leading young ones to Christ! She was also already visiting villages in that area sharing the gospel of Christ.

HUNGER, DESPERATION AND WRONG CHOICES

We all sat at lunch. Then I discovered that plantain (my favourite) was missing on the table. As Irewamiri brought the plantain and I rejoiced, our guest said, “I am not taking plantain. I am hungry. If I eat just plantain, I would not be able to eat the rice well”. I said to her, “That’s a lesson- our hunger […]

IT WAS MESSY BUT I LET HER

Olive would always insist that she would eat her meal by herself. She would mess up her entire body and spill some all over the floor while others definitely got into her mouth. There are times that I would feel like feeding her so the entire place can stay clean without having to do the extra work of cleaning up. […]

INVEST IN THE MORNING

We were having a conversation with our covenant friends. We were all enjoying the moment but we began to share about our nature of waking up early to work. We all realized that we love to utilize the early hours of the day. We pray. We meditate. We write. We plan. To have a great morning, there was always a […]
