For the Love of You

The Faith Currency

The last few weeks have been nothing short of interesting, too much has been going on. Most of what has been going on has been hurdles that I could do without, but these hurdles visited and they keep hatching other hurdles. As I have gone through these hurdles, my mind has kept thinking about this blog. I have thought about the 10,000 blogs that I have written on my head, I have thought about all the beautiful things that were destined for this blog but which were aborted in the head, and in the end I have realized that I missed blogging. So for the nth time this year, I have committed to do better. The good news is that the blogs are now being typed, now to being consistent. Nothing like a good hurdle to get you back to your first love. (more…)

Hurricane Haiti’s of Life

Last Sunday, I sat next to a lady who in between the service told me that I should not visit malls this week. She told me that her brother worked in the US Embassy, and had gotten a notification that a terror attack was imminent. This lady was a stranger so I was a bit taken aback by the way she dropped this bombshell, but I managed to sober up and tell her that we would pray for the nation. In the recent past, I have had a strong sense that our country is standing on the shoulders of prayer warriors. I committed to be one of these warriors and pray for the nation. (more…)

How survival mentality has taken the church away from its core mandate!

The beauty of running a start-up is that you see the world through lenses that you ordinarily would not. One of our current struggle at LLA is where to hold our meetings! Each time we schedule a meeting and especially if it is for the wider group, my first headache is where we will hold the meeting. Our default meeting point has become church as many of our forums are on weekdays or on Saturday (and even this is never easy to get). As I have searched for a church that can host us, I have been heartbroken at how inaccessible the church has become (physically and otherwise). I will explain. (more…)

A journey of demystifying Prophetic Ministry (Part 2)

I am on a journey to demystify the prophetic ministry. I am loving these journey, learning from the Father and taking steps towards this being less mysterious. In part 1 I shared how I have in the recent past struggled with the prophetic ministry. I shared how this struggle was fed by the fear of human-dependence that I have seen this ministry breed. God led me to read the book of 1 Corinthians 14 and as I was studying these chapter, I came across this article that seemed to summarise my fears – almost from my head to the paper it was written on. Here’s what it said: (more…)

A journey of demystifying Prophetic Ministry (Part 1)

I have come to realise the value of a clear mission and vision. An organisation that is crystal clear on why it exists, and then it applies razor-kind of focus to this mission, can go very far. I find lessons on this across the Word of God. The last instructions Christ gives to His disciples are meant to ensure that they have a very clear mission and vision: “Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” The disciples were to do many things, but in the end those things were to add up to their one mission – Go and Make Disciples. (more…)

Why you must pursue a ridiculous dream

Over the last few weeks, God has been challenging my faith! I consider myself a person of faith, I mean who quits a ‘high-flying job’ and starts a venture like Lapid Leaders Africa, only a woman of faith, right?! However, over the last few weeks God has been telling me that He’s not impressed by this my faith. Every week I have told Him, really God? Really? I literally live by faith not by sight and you tell me you are not impressed? And the answer has been a resounding yes~ (more…)

Love is Hard!

Today we held a training for the Lapid Leaders Council (LLC). LLC is the governing body that the graduates from the 3-month program transition to so as to enlist into our mission to raise an army of the next generation of African Leaders. Anywho, while we were praying after the LLC training, I felt God leading us strongly to this verse,  1 Corinthians 13: 1-3″If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.” (more…)
