Peace!

He knew better than we could ever know, the kind of troubles we would have to face; and well ahead of them, He promised us His peace and gave it freely. “Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” Letting us know that in the face of serious challenges to our peace, when the only thing we see is trouble and fear, He has given us peace. That peace will overshadow and calm every storm in ways that only He can. “Peace, be still…” (Mark 4:39)

Flash Fiction: Tricked by God

Nothing could have prepared them for what happened a month later. The whole village was caught unawares. We all woke up to a regular day and were going about our regular business. It was early, around 7 a.m. For Tobi and Laide, they had woken up early, as usual. Activities on their farm was off to an early start. Laide went to collect fresh eggs from the chicken pen and on her way, picked some fresh tomatoes to fry with the eggs. Although the farm had a big poultry unit, she kept her own chickens in a pen, within her reach. She also had a small garden of her own, where she grew a few vegetables for their needs. She delighted in serving her family fresh food. It was one of the perks of farm living.

His Faithfulness Remains

I may not be able to explain why the things causing this pain have been allowed to happen or even linger. All I know is that when I call to Him, in my distress, He will answer me (Psalm 120:1). He will be with me in trouble. He will rescue me and honour me (Psalm 91:15). He is my Father and my God (Psalm 89:26) and I trust Him to make it all good in His time (Eccle.3:1,11).

Ready For A Marathon?

I agree that it is time to move on, but we must be properly equipped for the journey ahead. This is not a journey for the fainthearted. We must focus on the Good Shepherd who knows the way and the destination. Why? We have not travelled this way before. The terrain is strange to us and we do not have a map to follow. But, we have the Way with us. He is ready and willing to guide us. His thoughts towards us are good and He has good plans for us.

Living Without Regrets

A life of no regrets is unrealistic. However, this does not mean we should go to town, misbehaving at will. While it is true that human nature is fallible, when we rely on God to help us and guide us, we can live a fruitful and productive life, where we are constantly learning and adjusting our behavior as we go through life. That is an enabled life. A life of marvelous help from God. That is what we should aim for.

Once Upon A Time

Yet, people wake up and go to work. The markets are open. Churches are open. Humans are moving like robots and the sun rises and sets each day. Where are the people with seeing eyes and hearing ears? There is trouble in the land. It is a keg of gunpowder waiting for the slightest spark to explode. Where are you? What are you doing?

Becoming You!

We are made for good works, uniquely designed and planned for the unique person that we are. It is time to stop copying others and living lives that are not genuine and original. Let the original you come out, to do the original things that God made you for.
