Send me and I will go

One of things people hardly ever share about this journey to what God calls them into is the impact of this journey on finances. I don’t blame them. In most cases when you reach the Promised Land, you forget where you came from and the hurdles you faced. The excitement of the moment makes it all worth it. So I have committed to write these things as I go along lest I forget. And yes, money is a big challenge; money is a big reason why many people do no step into God’s calling over their lives. And it is actually one of the more valid reasons to keep away from pursuing the call God has over your life. A person has to eat, purpose or no purpose; a purpose has to pay rent, purpose or no purpose; a person has to dress, purpose or no purpose; and all these need money! (more…)

Refuse to get stuck

So last week I shared about how the path to the calling God has over your life has not been easy. I shared how some days I have woken up and had to encourage myself in the Lord. See this blogpost ->When you have to be resilient. As a result of this blog, I got several messages from people indicating that they were praying for me as I walk into what God has called me to. I salute every single person that has whispered a prayer to the Lord. (more…)

I ain’t man enough for this one

So last week I started sharing some of the things God has been teaching me as I have lived out His calling over my life – purpose related things. I started with a lesson on why I don’t think we need to necessarily quit our jobs inorder to live out our purpose, see this blog ->Don’t quit your job. This week God has placed more stuff in my heart. This one has been a tough lesson to learn, especially because I am a doer, I want to run with things to the end; I want to get into activity with zeal. Then God tells me to take a chill pill, to learn to let Him be the one who births and sustains whatever He calls me to. A friend of mine once said, whatever is born in prayer can only be sustained in prayer. How true that is. (more…)

Don’t quit your job!

Ever heard this theory that for you to live out your purpose you must quit your job? Okay if you have not heard the theory, everytime you have a ‘purpose conversation’ with a coach or people living out their purpose, do you feel like they are silently advocating for you to quit your job; they may not say it loudly but the people they interview have quit their jobs and so you feel the pressure to do so as well. You feel its impossible to discover your purpose while at the workplace or settings you currently are in? I have met people from developed nations who feel like they need to visit a third world country to connect with their purpose. (more…)

An aborted vision

Every once in a while God speaks a word that burns at you and you cannot keep it to yourself. This is one of those days. I recently listened to Bill Haybel talk about courageous leadership. You have to listen to this; it is mind boggling; the video is on YouTube. As I listened to this video, I could feel mu mind being freed. I realized that the greatest enemy to every single dream God has ever given me, and I bet you too, has always been my mind. It is amazing that the mind helps us do such great things; build houses, invent computers, set up businesses, run ministries, be great at our workplaces; yet this same mind if allowed will be the same reason we do not step into what God calls us to.

When Jesus say yes nobody can say no

So this song ‘when Jesus say yes nobody can say no’ has been top on gospel music charts for a while now. The YouTube upload has been equally popular! We clearly love the beats behind this song but the lyrics do not hurt either, they are encouraging and often what we need to hear. Yet someone needs to tell Michelle Williams and Co that they need to do another rendition; one for when Jesus says no, what to do. Okay I clearly am not a songwriter as those lyrics do not rhyme but still, there is a conversation there that needs to be had. (more…)
