Live the dream

 

c13aa90f9ce4197f18883fbfdb2242aaDecisions are made, conclusions are reached. Some with dire consequences, others don’t even cause a ripple. The decision to follow your heart or your dreams is anything but easy. It tasks your mind, tests courage and takes its toll.

But is it worth it? YES

At Gabbatha (the stone pavement), a decision was taken that precipitated the course of events that changed history. A man following his passion died to save the world. He knew that I probably would choose not to believe but he went all the way and He is exalted in every nation.

Is it worth it? Again YES!

Follow your heart.
Live limitless.
Be optimistic, things are getting better.
Live out of the bag God has packed for you.

Jesus was sentenced by an unwilling, people-pleasing ruler. It doesn’t matter how you get to your stone pavement. Maybe it’s a sack letter, a broken heart, rejected proposal, a not planned for pregnancy, whatever! Take a decision that will cause a life-changing effect, let the world watch you ignite the passion, courage and talent you possess.

Be remarkable.
Leave your mark.

The Rhythm of Life

Crash,clang, clatter,bang! Sometimes the symphony of your life can be a discordant tune. Instead of beautiful harmonies, the key is off and the melody is non-existent. If you are musically inclined, you unconsciously close your ears and eyes to the sound that already registers in your soul. The worship becomes a bit flat, your dance step falters and you struggle to find balance. Life is like that sometimes, plans go awry, people die,jobs are lost, fuel prices go up, friends are lost. Discordant tunes! Ruined harmonies!

Faith is????
The firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. …
A hope against hope.
A place like a child sleeping. ..
A voice calling keep walking you’re not alone in this world. ..
A chord that rings pure and true regardless of chaos, change or circumstance.

Keep faith!
Live faith!
Believe and receive!

So after hearing the wrong note, change the song, sing on key, increase the worship and dance through.

Faith is….
Whatever God has said.
Hold on, we are guaranteed victory in the end.

Follow your Track

Walking is fast becoming a new love for me. The air is crisp and cool, the world is quiet and seemingly peaceful for a few minutes and a sense of wellness fills me up as I walk. Interesting signs pop up and interesting people show up every morning.

I met a man and in spite of the music in my ears, he persisted in asking questions and firmly berated me for not measuring my steps and progress. He insisted that I needed to and I smiled and said “I didn’t have to”, he showed me his gadgets and was impressed with himself and his steps. Smiling still, I kept on walking…

The lanes on a race track are clearly defined, marked and separate. This is intentional not just for order but so everyone knows their lane and are responsible for their victory or loss. Not so different from life’s race. You are designed for your own task, your work and walk is YOURS. Enjoy the walk..

Yes, don’t be so carried away by the focus that you forget to enjoy. I get it!You must show a measure of seriousness, calculate the odds, hit your target and be perfect, right? Remember, God does not call you to be perfect but excellent. He enjoins you to fellowship with Him.

Enjoy the walk.
Lean on His grace..
Depend on His unfailingly strength.
Bask in the sunshine of his brilliant love.
Enjoy the work.

The race is not to the swift but He will carry you on eagles wings as you put your limitations (gadgets, experiences, gifts ) in His unlimited self.

See, I had a longer walk ahead, he took a taxi. We were going in different directions so don’t be pressured by life’s distractions. ..

Follow your track.
Run your race.
Smile and enjoy the walk.

Enjoy the rains

rain

It rained a lot. I sure loved the weather but it was a lot and it kept falling. Steady. Persistent. Never letting up. Life is like the weather sometimes, all you see is the rain. The drizzle of everyday demands or the downpour of need and pain. When the season of rain comes, there is nothing you can do about it. You just weather the storm. Not always easy, considering the mud patches that come with the rain.

So instead of willing it to stop, get an umbrella!

Draw from the Wells inside you, you have reservoirs of grace and strength.
Hope is not a myth.
Faith is not a fable.

You have need of courage.
The road may be slick and vision impaired.It’s okay, keep going on. The steps of the righteous are ordered.
Maintain your smile .
Focus on the beauty of the lightening. Listen to the drum-roll of the Thunder.
God is working behind the scenes.

It is alright. Rains come and sometimes when it’s raining on the inside, realize that God loves you and he cares. In the storm, He is your anchor.  He will never leave. So, when you feel drenched, remember that He is right beside you. He knows how you feel and there is already an umbrella in His Word. The sun has come and it will be alright.

Enjoy the rains,don’t complain!
It’s the season for growth!
Enjoy your day!
