This morning I begrudgingly transitioned from the book of Esther to the book of Job. My one year bible plan says if you will read the book of Esther and love it, then you have to read the book of Job, we are in it for the good and the bad. So the book of Job it is. If I was honest, I would confess that the book of Job is easily my least favorite book in the bible. However, I have come to accept it as one of those necessary stuff, not for pleasantries but for the lessons God placed in it. So I asked God to open my heart and speak to me through this book. The journey has begun with some very real truths, a revelation of friendships that last through the thick times.
I love learning. Steve Jobs says something that I relate to, “Stay Foolish. Stay Hungry”. Carol Mutoko paraphrases it in the language we understand, she says “Never arrive” i.e. usiwahifika! That perhaps is what these year has been about, a year of growth and learning. (more…)
It is 7.30am. Only one of the attendees to the Lapid Leaders seminar is seated and rearing to go. That’s not too bad. We are African timers afterall right? Up until its 830, the official starting time of the seminar, there are only 5 people in the room. 5! This is sad as it gets, where are the 20 something people that had indicated they’d come for the seminar? I want to scream. A give myself a pep talk; perhaps traffic was bad, they will be here in a short while. I check my phone for missed calls several times; perhaps the attendees got lost and are attempting to reach me on my cellphone. But wait, there are no missed calls. Its 845, we are now 7. Time for a corner room discussion with God. (more…)
I love this my country. I love it not just for the usual stuff; the weather, the animals that roam outside all our gates etc; but also for the drama! We have drama befitting of Nollywood. It still is a wonder how we have not yet conquered this billion dollar industry by producing drama filled suspense full movies. Anywho, this week we did not disappoint. We have released a new set of suspense filled drama. We are calling it #mydressmychoice. (more…)
I met this really hot guy. He is everything I ever prayed for. He speaks to my heart in ways I did not think possible. He seems to know the things I like, naturally. And when he speaks, well, I stand no chance. He is a dream come true, an answer to a prayer I have made for so many years. I had given up on meeting him; I had decided he would be a prayer request for many years to come. So meeting him was a pleasant surprise. To find that we connect at such emotional levels was a bonus. How lucky can a girl get? Excitement is an understatement to what I felt as I interacted with him. (more…)
Eureka, we took the first step! Over the last few weeks I have been sharing my journey into what God has called me to. I have talked about the fears I have had, the drama with money, the walk of obedience that has not always been easy, and the lessons I have learned as I have done this. The lessons have been so many, I feel I still have many other blogposts I need to do on this. But today I want to celebrate the first steps. After all the planning, the heartaches, the prayers, the tears, did I say the prayers, and many more prayers, we finally made the first step into the Promised Land. (more…)
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…)
