Do you ever see like we romanticize the Word of God? Like we see it from the eyes we want to see it rather than what it truly is? I do. Sometimes I will read His Word and sift it to make sure it makes sense to me. That I am a hopeless romantic who believes in happily ever after does not help coz I will be sifting through His word for the happy ending. (more…)
So I have been having a back and forth with my Daddy over some issues in my heart. Pertinent one has been the question of what extent God governs and orders our lives and what role choices play in all that. That sounds quite complicated but it actually is not, I will attempt to simplify it. (more…)
Choices have consequences. This has become such a common statement in my world following a statement that was made by US top diplomat as Kenya went into elections. This statement has come to mean different things to different people depending on the political divide you sympathize with. For those who are sympathizers of the current administration, they will often be heard ridiculing this statement. For those against the current administration, every time there is an event that is going wrong, this statement is thrust into the open as a reminder of how the administration is all wrong. (more…)
An amazing truth – He’s got the whole world in His Hands. So I am reminded not to stress. To learn to unplug. Because He has the whole world in His hands.

Let me tell you about a mythical city full of people who live strange lives. You won’t believe the kind of lives they live when I tell you! Most of them wake up in the morning not having had enough sleep. The first thing they do after turning off the alarm is to check their twitter and whatsapp feed to see what they missed out as they slept. They quickly shower, change into their clothes and take coffee to wake up while watching the morning news in case they missed something important. Meanwhile, their kids are picked up by a school bus at 5.30am to make it on time for school. They dash out of the house in a hurry because they want to beat the traffic jam before the rest of the city heads out to the road! If they’re…

I am in the process of transitioning into and out of several things. The thing I am learning about transitions is that they are a mixed bag of exciting and scary. Exciting because the world of what God can do is endless; scary because the world of unknown is wide open and often gives birth to a world of fear.

Over the last few weeks I have posted blogs on the lessons I learnt from the book of Ruth (see->>Letting go of the perfect guy image, if in doubt of his character, run; and when you are tired of the wait). I could go on and on with this amazing story. However, this is the last post I will be making in this season over this. As I post these last observations, I am thanking God for His word; it truly is food to my soul. This story has not only encouraged me, it has renewed my faith in God, that in His time He makes ALL things beautiful. So here are the observations that tag at my heart. (more…)
So last week the events of this my dear country caused me to take a detour (see this post) from this amazing romance story of Ruth and Boaz. I am excited to be back at jotting the lessons the Lord placed in my heart as I meditated on this hot romance! The word of God is truly sharper than a double edged sword if I think this is a hot story!
