Lord Guide Me

image

Lack of prayer direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
Proverbs 3:5‭-‬6 NKJV

The Price For Happiness

image

People tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will descend like fine weather if you’re fortunate.

But happiness is the result of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even have to leave certain environments and go somewhere looking for it.
You have to participate relentlessly.

I hope you find your happiness.

Touch a Heart

image

Touch a heart before asking for a hand.

I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ”
Acts 20:35 NKJV

Why love is the greatest

image

And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

I Corinthians 13:13 NIV

Faith = Today
For we live by faith, not by sight.

2 Corinthians 5:7 NIV

Hope = Tomorrow
Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.”

Romans 4:18 NIV

Love = Eternal
…because God is love.

1 John 4:8 NIV

Faith will pass. That’s right. The Bible defines it as the evidence of things not seen. We need faith only for what we do not see and in heaven we won’t be needing it since we shall be seeing our God face to face.
They shall see His face, and His name shall  be on their foreheads.

Revelation 22:4 NKJV

As for hope, it too shall pass because in Heaven our hope shall be fulfilled. In fact, we shall be living the hope we today have.
For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face.

Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.

I Corinthians 13:12 NKJV

And now back to the question again: why is love the greatest? Because God is eternal, almighty and noone is greater than Him. Love is the greatest because God is the greatest and above all … God is love.

The Black Badge of Africa

image

I was born with the scent 
of wild flowers in the air, 
the smell of wood-fires, 
and the cooking pot. 
I was born to be proud 
of the black badge 
of my skin. 

My first tears flowed 
from the sting of smoke, 
from the pain of the thorns, 
in my naked, small feet. 

How i hated, at first, 
the long hours, herding cattle, 
but i loved the hills, 
and the river-when it gave me fish! 

I learned to listen 
to the songs of birds, 
to watch the colours, 
of dawn and sunset. 
I learned to love 
the land that gave me 
my own black badge, 
the black badge of Africa.
