Interaction with Nature

Beautiful flowers of various color,

Green pastures, cool breeze, fresh air,

Waters flowing, fruits growing,

Sun shining bright, birds chirping, Continue reading

‘It shall be well, I see you smiling, you will be shining…’

I get my Facebook friends often sharing photos or stories of famous people mostly who will often use these words and who on such a post will get uncountable likes, a thousand comments typing Amen and some hundreds of sharing. It gets me wondering and thinking…

Well, that has become such a popular line not only in social sites but also in pulpits and mention them… We are bound to hear or read this almost every day. And it’s a very encouraging line especially if we happen to be going through some hard times or waiting for something.

It’s true my tomorrow may be very bright, everyone has such a dream. And how we wish it were true, because it always does not happen. Maybe there’s another future they don’t talk so much about…? Continue reading

These Little Angels, But oh They Are Sinners!

I had never worked with children for my whole life until last year when I joined iServe Africa. I thought it was a ministry for some, and after all mothers know how to handle their kids better, I said to myself. So, I never bothered, mostly because of ignorance but also because it was a very genuine ignorance. Now I know better! I came face to face with the immense and desperate help these little Continue reading

Always Walking Away…

 

Some few weeks ago I had a somewhat funny but inspiring experience with this stubborn boy. We were in a Sunday school class, and he did not want to stay; he wanted to join his mum and dad who happened to be also in their session-and so you get that my colleague and I were trying to stay with the kids. But not just stay because we were teaching them God’s Word.

So we sang, had introductions and then it came, the time for the Word. He couldn’t take it, guess already bored and unlike other kids he just couldn’t concentrate and so he decided to make it clear to me, by going to the door (I was helping keep order as my colleague taught). Continue reading

And if I perish, I perish…!

In class. Christians and government! Do we have a part to play? Many of us hate politics and it has been called a ‘dirty game’ by many, and that’s understandable especially from our context. And from our history particularly it is one discouraging aspect that maybe if asked we would opt for its non-existence.

And our facilitator just started in an odd way. I thought this is a political class so we just go political you know. Continue reading

But is there a Remnant?

I have been zealous for the Lord God Almighty. The Israelites have rejected your covenant, broken down your altars, and put your prophets to death with the sword. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me too.” 1 Kings 19:10, 14

That may be the statement (or close to it) many Christians may make or have made when things seem to be turning upside down. Elijah said the same thing at a time when there seemed to be no hope in Israel. But listen to what the Lord tells him: Continue reading
