What to Write when you don’t Know What to Write

W

  It has been a hazy couple of years, and like a dripping faucet, the energy I usually derive from putting my thoughts into words has leaked away into the great unknown. What joy is there in sharing my most intimate thoughts with complete strangers? Is there a point to us humans just curious about what is going on in other people’s lives? No matter the color of your skin, or the society that...

#ChildNotBride

#

#ChildNotBride was the major rallying cry over the weekend and it brought to the fore, our innate feelings of love and compassion for our fellow humans, especially our children. Let us borrow a leaf from the reaction generated by this debased form of thinking (inferred or not) and extend that same anger to the paraplegic educational system, the hostile business environment, the derogatory lyrics...

Forgiveness 2.0 – Can you go back?

F

Forgiveness, just like Love, has definitions to varying degrees or like an onion—layers. I always thought I had the forgiveness thing locked down, yeah right! Just like the proverbial out of the blue, it hit me that I had just erased that part from memory and decided the type of forgiveness I wanted to extend. I found out that I couldn’t (or at least that’s what I had subconsciously agreed) go...

You Have Everything 2

Y

Luke 13:7; “then he said to the keeper of his vineyard, ‘look, for three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree and find none. Cut it down; why does it use up ground?’” (emphasis added) LIF101 You have time to cultivate your gifts and harness them to produce positive results to benefit others. Imagine, the fig tree gets what it needs from the earth, air, rain but it produces fruit...

You Have Everything 1

Y

Luke 13:6; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none (emphasis added) NKJV Note: The fig tree broke the rule “he that seeks shall find”, the man sought, but the fig tree was found wanting! No excuses! It had soil nutrients, water, sunlight with which the other fig trees in other vineyards were producing fruit. LIF101 When things don’t...

Rushing to Nolandia

R

Where are you going in such a hurry? That is the question I keep asking myself anytime someone walks past me on the pedestrian bridge. Those who use the bridge (yes, there are some folks who believe it is too much work) know that it is just wide enough to accommodate two people, in opposite directions. It seems some individuals always have emergencies, and do not have time to wait a couple of...

The Power of Music

T

A song can glorify God or the devil, if that song does not build up your spirit and glorify God, watch out! I have no problem with your kind of music, but I have a big problem with the motive behind your music. There is no neutral ground in this case; it’s either constructive or destructive to your spirit. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not until you mention God in your music, there must be a glaring...
