DAY NINETEEN: Watchers and Gatekeepers

Wake up from your slumbers, you men on the walls,Arise from your sloth, you keepers of the gates.The first shot has been fired,The city has been hit from distant arrows,Yet celebrations continue like nothing has gone wrong,As the slaughter of precious posterity advances without restrain. Arise to your posts, men and women of the cloth,Rise…

What/Who is ‘the future’ we are hoping for?

There is a growing concern about the kind of future we are hopeful about;Though it is yet unseen, indicators of what it may look like are all around us.If there is anything that should worry us more in this season, . . .It would be that we have opened up the fount of free expressions,…

When People Listen . . .

It is often said that most people listens to respond, not to understand what is being said; even speakers speak to be heard, not to seek clarity from engaging the audience, most of the times. Had each person seen the opportunity to listen and speak as one to attain a deeper depth of understanding, we…

Impossible Love

Often times, we have family conversation, in our home. I am growing deeply fond of it because it seems to bring more clarity to pressing life matters we may not be giving deliberate  attention to at the moment. Yesterday was one of those conversations, and here is one  of them, I thought it may be…

Wholesome Education for Life

One consistent truth that has been ignored more often is this: we need to think the HOLISTIC DEVELOPMENT OF OUR CITIZENRY, not periodic interventions. It seems elders and leaders would rather establish errors/negligence as the the standard; legacies are priced over the future of nations. The future of nations is the sum of the futures…

Insight for Elders

In my journey of life, I have come to realize that I seem to connect much easily with older people; perhaps it is because I seem to understand their story and empathize with them. The case is not so for younger people, who no matter how much one tries to show that they are well…

Counsel for Would-be Spouses (Men)

In recent times, I have found myself having a lot of conversations with single men (not many of ladies :-), about choosing a spouse and getting married (I guess ladies prefer to talk to women like them). As a matter of fact, so much burden has been heavy on my heart in this regard. So,…

Is there the Authentic Design for Sex and Love?

Recently, I stumbled on a Netflix series of documentaries by an international journalist on sex and love around the world. I decided to download the episodes and listen, beginning from my continent – Africa. The things I heard are very disturbing. I literally could no longer follow the series with my eyes open. . .what…

What Do These Things Mean?

The search for understanding is the wellspring of life. . . those who make their camp around understanding are ever-green and never in lack of what is needed. But understanding is not an easy get. It requires a deliberate immersion in life’s processes till the ‘Why’ is clear enough for a decisive action. These processes…

Desires, Dreams and Destinies

First written in 2018 Over the last 30 years I have carried in my heart a dream; just one dream: to see the glory of the LORD revealed in the earth. I know that may sound like a position that makes me sound spiritual, but I am already a spirit being, so I do not…
