Truth, Maybe

Maybe prayer is the hot air hope hangs on
Maybe hard work is the fuel faith runs on
Maybe humility is twins with favours
Maybe deep thinking unveil ideas  
Maybe discipline is the ticket to greatness
Maybe preparation attracts opportunities 
Maybe forgiveness is the kindest gesture 
Maybe giving is freedom in the highest
Maybe gratitude is key to contentment 
Maybe smiling is simplest act of beauty.

Be inspired

More of Jesus


I have accepted Jesus as my Lord and Personal Savior. Best decision ever. I am not done experiencing him. How could I? I never will till we get to heaven and see him face to face. Jesus is not a four year course. There is no exams whose result guarantees a full knowledge of Christ. Whatever you know. Whatever you have heard. Whatever you have read. There is more. So much more you are missing out if you think you are done knowing him. Fresh encounter awaits you each new day. Stay open. Be Inspired.

Tell Jesus

We keep to ourselves many things. Fears! Struggles! Weaknesses! Failures! Sicknesses! You and I know the reasons. Oh, we do. So we lie when we say we are okay. Yeah we do. But we don’t have to lie or stand alone. We never had to. Come, take a step closer. Tell Jesus! He’s neither lost a case nor found one too mysterious to crack. And when you do, trust Him to see you through. He is waiting! Go on. Tell Him so you can have peace. Be Inspired.

The Road Back

Guest Post by Fortunate Tirzah Malemale

​The road back always feels shorter
You lean your head against the window
Scroll through the selfies taken
Laugh out loud to those photo bombs
Recall the context of the ceased moment
Replay the highlights vividly

It’s the pleasures of having had being answered
The eased realization of the path now known
A sense of time well spent
That bitter feeling of ripping what you sewed
Like…the beauty of a rainbow after a flood
Fillled with flashbacks of memories made
Tender beginnings of the chapter
Sweet regrets which gives off climax to the story
With a topping of goodbyes

The road back always feels shorter
The tariff behind becomes familar
Thus making way to possibilities of a return
Anticipation of another trip burdens the heart
Expectations over met requires another round
The road back always feels shorter.

this July – Be a miracle

Miracles-Series-Idea

I doubt luck. I doubt coincidence. I believe in the impeccable timings of God. I believe God has the plan. One where everything is carefully drawn to an expected end.

So there’s a reason for every place we find ourselves at each point in time. There is a purpose no matter how brief we stay there. There are lives we can touch. There are hopes we can inspire. There are dreams we can fuel. There are imprints we can leave behind.

Because we are walking miracles. We are hills to many valleys. We are the dreams-come-true of many. We are more than what we think we are. We can, no matter our circumstances be used by God to orchestrate a mini revival. We can be used by God to reflect love. We can be used by God to restore hope.

So can we be used by the enemy.  Avail yourself and that evilest one will use you to destroy lives. He will use everything you know to scheme destruction that might linger for years. You would be surprised when you realize.

Because we are weapons. Believe it. You are and I at where we are right now are weapons. We can equally be dangerous to the body of Christ and to the kingdom of the enemy. You have to decide whose hands you will be in.

There is nothing like passing through. Not with God. There may be a momentary sit on the stands. But there is always a purpose for every place we find ourselves. One that may be hidden but sometimes bigger than what appears obvious.

The ultimate opportunity is to teach Christ everywhere we find ourselves. Reflect Him in little acts of kindness. In selfless acts that can transform lives. In even odd places, there is something good you can do.

So right now. How can you be used by God at your workplace? What can you do in this community to touch lives? Could there be more than these monthly meetings? Even at this conference, in this public transport, at this one time gathering, what can I do to reflect God knowing that God doesn’t just bring us to places? Because we are already miracles and need to touch someone.

This June – Join

There is no creative way to write this. There are people who don’t know about Jesus. They haven’t heard the name of Jesus let alone experience His resurrection power. Believe it. 

There are those who have, but. They have accepted and confessed Jesus as their Lord and personal saviour, but. They go to church and pray, but. They don’t have any personal experience and communion with Him.

Then there are those who need reminders every now and then about the power of Jesus. They get lost in the spur of the moment. They forget the power given them to either stand or flee. They rather see themselves as grasshoppers. (Well don’t we all at times)

That’s when we come in. For God is able to make grace abound to us, so that in all things at all times, having all that we need, we will abound in every good work. We have been given everything we need to continually tell about Jesus. We have all it takes to preach Jesus.  To help bring people to the saving grace of Jesus. And help them stay there.

So evangelism is not work meant for only Pastors and Evangelists. “Go into the world and preach the gospel” is an open statement to every believer. We should work it with both hands as we do “…that you may prosper and be in good health.”

This June, join. Use every platform you have to preach Jesus. Use your space. Use your gift. Use your office. Use “you” to tell someone about Jesus.

This June, join. Surrender your excuses. Slay your shyness. Step out. Reach out. Put sharing Jesus on your daily routine. And do it.

This June, join. Grab your megaphone. It could be a pen. Perhaps a brush. Or anything that presents Jesus to someone in a conspicuous way or not.

This June, join. Stand up and be counted. Let Heaven rejoice!
