We shall stand tall again

The events of the last few days have left many feeling wounded, flabbergasted, wondering, all those big words. Every time I watch news or photos from this Westgate attack I can’t help but feel bile in my stomach. Who does such heinous things? Who shoots children leave alone the helpless men and women? This stuff is meant to be in movies only! How did this become our reality, that a person opens a sniper at another human being, at children, mimes! (more…)

The faith challenge

Last week i found myself meditating a lot on faith. I had been praying for some stuff that seemed humongous and super important at the time and had sadly felt like I got an answer that was not what I had hoped for. It got me thinking about this thing called faith, that faith is not just for when things are going my way but more so when they are not. However, these thoughts did not stop me from being disappointed and feeling very disappointed? (more…)

This faith is strange…

Do you ever think that this faith we profess is the strangest? I sometimes do. How else do you explain such an unfailing love as the one we get from the King of Kings? Howe then do you explain how Holy the Lord is and yet chooses to love us. How do you explain that He chases after us despite and inspite of who we are? Strange is probably the word, yet in that strangeness is the best gift ever to mankind, a salvation by grace through faith alone; not earned, not deserved but freely given. (more…)

Confessions of a heart

Have you ever battled with God over anything? Well I have. I have battled with God for the longest time over that I am not yet married. It has been what I would call an unpleasant battle. Funniest part is that everytime the battle was ending I was sure God heard me and like manna from heaven, my miracle was in the making. But time and time again this miracle has not come through. Each time I have thought this is the stuff we Christians don’t talk about; the unanswered prayer; the disappointment that follows; the questions. This blog post was written during one such time ‘The why question‘. I had a lot of questions that were followed by sulking; this blog post was on that period ‘my sulking week’. Note that these are just one of the many times I have battled with God over this being single stuff. A friend of mine the other day summarized it for me, that there must a sell by date for all things in life including getting married. However, this sell by date seems to have passed for some of us but for some reason God is not panicked! Haaa, how is that! (more…)
