Clarity, Amidst the Mist of Muchness

Set the reach and the boundaries of your dreams in the LORD. If you do not, the world will set you on an endless pursuit of vanity. Don’t just be hopeful (waiting for a possible intervention from God), have faith (actively working towards fulfilling what you heard from the LORD). Living by faith is not…

How Much is Enough?

One question that most people shy away from asking is “How much is enough?” This is against the backdrop of ‘more’ being an indicator of progress and success. It is hard to contemplate more as less or sticking to the original concept, context and content. Common sense would interpret it otherwise. Surely, convenience, scale, and…

We Love It Ready . . .

I can relate with how leaders with real value feel, when asked to provide what people don’t really deserve for them – even things that those seeking it are not willing to pay a price for. It is a classic case of people demonizing others for insisting on process instead of interventions. I have a…

Pondering Pathways and Patterns

For a couple of days now, I have been deeply in thoughts about what I see daily . . . Prior to now, I contemplate them for a while and just put them aside to focus on my own journey; after all, my account to God must not be short, on the account of being…

Unknown and Uncertain

The most significant part of my life journey is defined by two major factors – the unknown and the uncertain. They are constants. Sometimes they are so scary, I am literarily paralyzed on all fronts, wondering how to proceed; mostly so, until God shows up to lead me forward. Believe me, ‘forward’ do not always…

God’s Value-Vehicle Gap

Many times, the vehicle for what God intends to do is not always in sync with the value He wants to provide. It would require a totally submissive disposition and continual guidance of God, by His Spirit, not to miss His move. Sadly, many God-loving people have missed God’s move for them by their hard…

WINNING WORK – Winning the battles in what you do as work.

Work is whatsoever is done to bring certain defined value to people. It is not what is done to get paid. It requires more than providing agreed deliverables to get work done. Your very essence is involved. It is the exercise of you to deliver value to other people The challenge with this is that…

In patience, there are deliberate and intentional actions,Manifestations (words and deeds) may be restrained, but progress is made in a defined direction.Do not be complacent in doing nothing,Waiting patiently…

DAY THIRTY-FIVE: The Value of Process

If all that is good happens suddenly, the world will be full of chaos; even the morphing of a seed into a tree demands the exercise of time. If God gave a person all that was designed for him or her at the instance of his or her birth, he or she would die the…

DAY TWO: Response From Above

Still on Elijah, the man of God in 1 Kings 17–18, it seems there is whole lot to learn from a prophet in crisis. Earlier on, he had declared, in the name of the LORD, that there would be no dew or rain on Samaria because of institutionalized idolatry by Jezebel, the wife of the…
