Few Lessons From 2019

The year 2019 has been so far an amazing year for me and my family, in this year I have had tremendous growth on the spirit than any other year.

I’ve come to understand that my faith though small must have depth to create the impact God wants for my generation.

I’ve Come to understand that his ways are indeed not my ways and I must trust that he has my best interest at heart.

I’ve come to understand that we breakthrough via prayers and a consistent intimacy with our Creator. “Koinonia”

I’ve come to realize that God is never too late 😉.No matter how long you’ve waited, he’s always right on time for his own. Yeah the waiting period isn’t always sweet but putting up the right attitude while waiting is very important because Bro
James said patience when it’s done with us can make us perfect…Hahaha 😂I was in that school for awhile, boy is the curriculum fun? 😒 No It wasn’t and it isn’t but we’ve got to keep on to get a tangible result.

I’ve come to understand Words are cheap, Action sets the vehicle in motion… people really remember you for how you acted towards them, what you said to them, how you handled situations and not just by what you said to them…

I’ve come to understand that true friendship indeed exist 🤗🤗. Trust me, I does… Just keep praying and believing God, he’ll bring one your way but I just hope you’ll be open enough to let them in .

I’ve always known that God answers prayers but, in this year I’ve been the object of his love 😍😍and the answers were right on time.

I have a lot to say buh I’ll stop here for got to go back to bed, have a busy day tomorrow.

TALES FROM THE GHETTOS..

# SERIES  1

I stepped out of the rickety van that drove me to Watanga. After highlighting, I stood still as time flew past by me. I could hear the flaps of it’s wings as it flew by. Then I decided to move as I heard the van zoom off into the streets. I am a missionary to this part of humanity.
As I walked the streets, I felt the death and warmth of a stenchy atmosphere. The buildings we’re closely arranged in a way no car could enter in except for the major streets.
Trying to locate a room where I can stay for the duration of my work, when I heard screams from a nearby wall. Startled, I decided to brave in and have a sight, and as a missionary render help. But as I approached, I heard gunshots and a loud scream then a silence…
Wow! I stopped on my tracks and felt a great burden drop on my heart.. then MY LOVER whispered “beloved you have to be fast, A soul has just been lost”.
With sadness, grief and sheer heaviness. I turned to leave but was interrupted by the heavy puffs of marijuana projected towards me, which made me cough out dryly. There stood a young boy with a red eye, and a big brown wrapped up marijuana in his mouth staring at me. Oh! I saw the plea in his eyes, Joshua Warren, a 9 year old was in addiction.
My bags dropped, I couldn’t contain myself.
I began sobbing in front of this boy. Just as I was about to speak to the boy, I heard a feminine voice “sorra mista, pleash who you?”
A brown toothed mother to Joshua spoke up.
“I’m Joshua Tommy, I came in some few hours ago, I wanted a place to stay for some days”.
I spoke amidst the tears in my eyes. “Ok, how much you pay?” She queried, “$300.” I replied.
“Follow me”…..she barked at me.
As we walked along , we arrived at a place called THE CHURCH OF HELL. An artistic decoration on the title showed pastors in sensual affairs with little girls. I was perplexed. As we moved in, passing through a corridor, oh God! Girls of about 9,10,11,-18 years were offering themselves to clergies, etc for gruesome sex. I almost fainted on the sights.
What a world.
But I pictured a girl by the Corner of a room, all alone and Dejected, then I knew……….
I knew I had work to do, I knew, the whole body of Christ must rise up and save the lost.
“Hey! Mista, here’s your dunghole”.. Susa, Joshua Warrens mother yelled out. Startled, I cleared my throat and offered gratitude. She disappeared into the next room. “BELOVED, Go down and speak to that soul by the wall” the LOVER OF SOULS prompted.
Immediately, I rose up, picked up a blue Rose I hid in my bag, with my Bible, I headed straight down to meet the girl I saw sitting by the wall.
“Hey pretty, good afternoon” she jerked in fright and I saw pain oh! Horrible pain, dark pain, anguish, oh! I saw her lost in her own world, she was already feeling the heat of damnation, she was consumed by grief, despair, destitution, this girl was dying slowly, she was on her way to HELL.
Then the HOLYSPIRIT wept, I could feel him weep, one drop of tears dropped on my heart, and oh! I felt the pain, I felt the heat of the his Love, I felt his desperation. Amidst the tears THE LOVER OF SOULS SAID “This is the one I created in my own image, in my likeness, oh! Joshua tell her about me, I want to embrace her”
In His words I talked to her about Jesus, and in a giffy, the room was filled with similar looking girls , including Susa and Joshua. All were on thier faces in tears, As the HOLYSPIRIT took over.
As we finished, Joy sprang up in thier heart as they began to sing for Joy……
But I the missionary, my heart and mind, we’re weeping, why?….you may ask,
Not for Joy, but for pity FOR THE CHURCH.
THEN THE SPIRIT SAID,
(composed song)
©Joshua Tom
There is a people, a group by the wall
A girl, a boy, a woman with no hope at all
There’s a family bowed in pains
Oh bound by the devil’s chains.
There’s darkness in a neighborhood
Heavy tears, wails, screams and none to soothe
There’s a dying boy, lost in sin
Would you go and rescue the ones I Love?
# slavewiththebeautifulfeet .
Dear Reader . Rise up
Souls are dying,
Men are crying
Won’t you lead them to the cross,
Do not allow this song to stand against you on the LAST DAY

Daily Prompt: Retreat

 

IT IS TIME TO LOOK BACK

It has been a really busy year for me.

Looking back from the beginning of this year i realize i started the year excited, hopeful, expecting, anticipating and all. As January ended my i was discouraged and down as things did not work out as i expected it to work out.Then came February, March and June and things started working out well and even better than expected. In those few months i thought….

RETREAT

Hey 🙂 life is good when you’re with God cause he got your back. Then came July the long awaited  month, lol … this was the month i was going to go for service FINALLY, though the excitement had long waned i still had to go so i went

The camping experience was wonderful and i enjoyed it, but it was soon over before i blinked my eyes and i was posted to my place of primary assignment. With each passing day i learnt a new thing, my wisdom boat expanded and the pains and troubles i encountered only stayed to re-shape and mold me re-branding me into a STRONGER individual.

HAVING FUN WITH FRIENDS

In the few months past i met great minds that contributed to my development and i am for ever grateful to them. No matter how little their contribution maybe  i am grateful.

In all i am grateful to God for his love and presence, though sometimes it felt distance but i know in those moment of silence he was teaching me to learn to listen to him no matter how crowded my head or environment was. It was your arms that shielded me from the devourer and his armies.

via Daily Prompt: Retreat

Sitting now to recount how my year has been so for, i have come to know that within this past one year i have grown a great deal. I have added years and knowledge that i couldn’t acquire in 4 years . I have learnt new things and today i stand tall to say i am wiser and more knowledgeable than i have been  in all my years since i reached the age of accountability.

My Sunday Adventure.

Yesterday was a beautiful day for me after a wonderful time in the presence of the Lord I decided to take  a rest but not for long cause I had to go see this amazing  place ☺

I stay in a town where there are  no bushes around , imagine my excitement yesterday when I went to a place so different, this place was  different from  my town. it was like a forest  far away from the city .

Look what I found! 🙊:roll:

image

What are you?

image

Well,  well, well I found that fruit though I don’t know what it is, it looked  beautiful  just hanging on that tree. As curious as I was I wanted to taste it but I was advised not to since I didn’t know whether or not it’s  edible .  It had  a liltle  juice  with a spongy core.
Any one with ideas on the name of this fruit?
I’ll  be waiting  to hear your  response  in the Comment  box.

image

So that’s not all I found  I found  this too but I can’t identify it just like the first one, but I know it looks juicy. I enjoyed my adventure  yesterday  and hope to go on another one:)
Here is a peek of the forest
lol

It’s good to get out of your environment  once in awhile you’ll be amazed at the wonder you’ll see.

From the depth of my heart

The ultimate gift of life is a life.
A life misspent is a life unworthy of this gift.
A life lived in reverences and knowledge of  its’ true purpose is one to be sought after with all our being , plunging down to the depths of this knowledge caves way to the achievement of our life’s’ purpose.

There is only one life to live.
Live it with the Word -JESUS

Live it to the fullest

Live it with understanding

image

Live it with an aim

Live it with a vision

Live it with a destination

Live it with Joy

Live it with hope

image

Live it with Grace

Live it with determination

Live it without regrets

Live it without fear

Be Good, Be True, Be Kind, Be Just, Be Faithful and above all Believe in God cause he is the ultimate gift-Life.

Ciao

A life worth living.

“In the end, its not the years In your life that counts but the life in your years”.

                                  -Abraham Lincoln

I recently read about some highly placed individuals in the society who were wealthy but actually did not live life cause they ended up ridiculed and their wealth couldn’t get them anywhere at the end of the day.

image

A song writer says “Only remembered by what we have done.” People think life is measured by the amassing of wealth, great achievements etc.  Our life years matters, and our life years depends on how much impact we have made in the lives of others and our society in general.

A smile to that little girl looking worn out and tired, can cheer up her soul and make her look forward to tomorrows  chores .

A thank you to that conductor who gave you a crumpled change  can lighten up his day.

It was only a sunny smile, But it scattered the night. Thus little it cost in giving, it made the day worth living.”
                                       -Anonymus.

image

The helping hand you lend to that old woman would relief her of her stress, making her grateful of your presence in her life.

A simple compliment to that young Lady at the mall would make her want to do more to help.

“Don’t allow idleness to deceive you; for while you give him today , he steals tomorrow from you.”
                                            -H. Crowquill

.

There is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving.”
                                   -Henry Drummon

Get living today, love, give and add more years to your life
Life is lived when we are able to lift others decided where you would rather be today.

What is normal ?

Back in secondary school i travelled from the  north down to the south I plowed the major high way with either my parent or I go  alone. When I was much younger ( 0- 12 ) we would take the night bus or my dad would drive us all. The last time we drove as a family down south, was for my grandma’s burial, while coming back we saw a car whose driver was in a haste the driver tried to over take us , he finally got ahead of us,   a wide gap was between us due to the speed but after a while we saw that same car in a terrible accident didn’t think anyone survived.

Before I left for school I  and my cousin who was staying with us  planned to attend a birthday of my little cousin in another state and also  wanted to use the opportunity to see other family members over there. On a faithful evening my mum called me and told me that my cousin was no more. I was in shock wondering, thinking, wishing I could have stopped whatever killed her if I was there. I thought about the plans we made and her beautiful face and wished it was all a lie (her death )

Recently I had a story of young man who invited his lady friend to his house  so they could have fun ( so called ) and she came, he needed some money he was with his ATM and he asked his lady friend to come along so she did. They both entered a bike together, not long after they got in the road their bike was hit and this young vibrant creatures who had great plans for the night and period they’ll be together where rushed to the hospital, the lady in a coma and the man bashed up  too bad.

Every time we find ourselves alive we make plans for tomorrow, we forget that life is like a vapour which appears for a while then vanishes away and we ought to commit our ways into God’s hands.  James 4 : 12 – 14

image

You think it’s normal to drink water with your mouth and not choke, you think it’s normal to sit up straight without complaining of back ache, you think if you eat right you’ll live long – isn’t that what our doctors or medical personnel tell us (no offence I’m one of them ),  we move around daily we see our relations and neighbor around us we don’t even acknowledge them or drop a smile to cheer them up. It doesn’t even occur to us that we might not be here tomorrow  and our legacy is what we’ll be remembered for.

image

Do you know that many out there had thought the same way and some where even better in health, wealth, had great qualifications in life but today they are either dead, leaving In regret crying had i known, wishing they could turn the hands of time.

I’m here to remind you of a few things and to tell you to be GRATEFUL . Be grateful for the life you have because it’s a gift and a precious one at that so it’s not normal it’s by his GRACE you’re alive today.

image

His love is what’s sustaining you, you must not have known that before. He went to Calvary for your sake redeeming you with his blood. Oh how more can one express his love for you if not by this sacrifice. Just so you know there was no condition  so his love is unconditional, he cares so much for you what  you can do to appreciate him, is give your life to him acknowledged his presence in your life. Its unbelievable but his love is for real and he’s willing to give you more than you ask him when you come.

Have a great week.

Where is your alabaster box?

Mark 14, has it focus but i’ll
focus today on the alabaster box and it owner. In Verse 3b of this chapter it says
“…there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head.”

image

For one to move to any destination, there must be a knowledge of that destination if not a purpose. Alabaster box lady knew who Jesus was and sought out his whereabout, she had thought about him always, maybe she even prayed to God to help him in his cause, for she knew through the Holy spirit what was to come within the following days. He’d always been in her heart else she wouldn’t have looked for him the way she did. Due to her love for him she looked for ways to express it and she came up with the ointment and the alabaster box. This was her best idea and Jesus knew it, she was no ordinary lady, Nah she wasn’t. One who used over a years wage maybe that was all she had left for a costly  ointment – spikenard.

image

She was one who did not let people’s opinion about her love for Jesus and her method of confession of that love bother her. Looking back at her personality I see a confident woman without shame , cause her love for him could not be compared to any other, A woman with a heart of Gold.

Alabaster box signifies one distinctive value in an individual peculiar to that generation. Her gift was unreserved, and honour exclusive.

image

Every individual have a potential, something in us put in there by God and one way or the other he’s done something for every individual on earth (1 John 2: 12- 14). We ought to offer him our offering daily in all our activities he requires Glory, Honour, Strength, Fear, Gladness, Worship ( PS 29 : 1 – 2, 96 : 6 – 9).

Nothing is too small to be offered. But just so you know their must be  a cost, a price must be paid  ( 1 Chron 21:24b) anything that does not cost you is not a worthy gift. He needs your Heart, Time,  Money, Love, Intellectual, Voice, Hands, Feet and the best of all we have with devotion. Make your choice now,Give him your best

There is no progress without a price, Where is your alabaster box? Discover your alabaster box for an exclusive honour,  pour your spikenard on him. Its the least you can do Friend.
