What are you looking at?

Then He commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and two fish, and LOOKING UP to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes. Matthew 14:19 NKJV Capitals mine

Looking down He saw
Five loaves and two fish
Looking around He saw
5,000 hungry men
Looking up He saw
Jehovah Jireh

Looking down He saw
His loved one in a tomb
Looking around He saw
A disbelieving crowd
Looking up He saw

Looking down I see
An empty bank account
Looking around I see
Bills yet to be paid
Looking up I see
The great Provider

Looking down I see
A heart that has been broken
Looking around I see
others just like me
Looking up I see
the One who will make me whole again

Zoe: Greek for life but used in scripture to denote the God kind of life (abundant) encapsulated in man!

As believers we rejoice, not because the fire is not real, but because we know we serve a God who has promised to be with us THROUGH IT ALL. Be comforted this week, knowing that God sees and all you are going through is for a season and you will come through SHINING with the VICTORY.

It is indeed well. 2008 continues to remain our year of UNCOMMON TESTIMONIES.

Rinrin...thank you so much. I'm getting back on track!

Boaz is coming!

And Naomi had a kinsman of her husband's, a mighty man of wealth, of the family of Elimelech; and his name was Boaz. And Ruth the Moabitess said unto Naomi, Let me go now to the field and glean ears of corn after him in whose sight I shall find grace. And she said unto her, Go my daughter. And she went and came and gleaned in the field after the reapers: and her hap was to light (as it turned out) on a part of the field belonging unto Boaz who was of the kindred of Elimelech. And, behold, Boaz CAME...Ruth 2:1-4a (KJV) Brackets (NIV)..Capitals mine

This one is for the single sisters'. Do I hear a halleluyah? For the sassy, single and satisfised sisters' who are still trusting God for a mate. During worship this morning, I felt I heard the Lord say "Believer, be encouraged and encourage your sisters that Boaz is coming". I began to laugh until I saw verse 3 of the 2nd chapter of Ruth in the King James Version...that Boaz came.

I recalled a recent conversation I had with a friend of mine and she said that God will not give you a man that you have to manage because every good and perfect gift comes from above. Not that the man will be perfect but he will be a good gift. An analogy that comes to mind is when you are desperately searching for an item at the supermarket right before closing, you get to the shelf and realise that there's only one left. It looks a little damaged but the shop staff are giving you the evil eye and you really, really want it so you say "Well, I can just manage this, if I chop off a bit here or there I guess it can really work".

This might be an ok mentality for grocery or even clothes shopping but I don't think it is God's plan for us concerning a future partner. I asked God, "why did you say Boaz is coming? Why not another name in the Bible?" He said "Go back and read that book again, the characteristics of the man for you are found in Boaz"

A son in the house (from the clan of Elimelech)Ruth 2:1
A strong man Ruth 2:9
A generous man Ruth 2:14
An understanding man Ruth 2:15
A man of integrity Ruth 3:18
A self-less man Ruth 4:10

So if you are waiting on the Lord, wait like Ruth. Don't allow depression to set in. Wait like Ruth. Don't sit at home and reminisce on how the good 'ole days were in Moab and don't even consider going back to the world. Go into the fields and glean. To glean was not a choice occupation, basically you were gathering left overs. I'm sure when people passed and saw those that gleaned they shook their heads in pity. I'm sure some may have said a few unkind comments. Just the way they do today. "Haba, don't you want to get married, you're not getting any younger o!" or "You're too choosy, all men are the same, just marry one and be done with it"! My encouragement to all this pertains to is to rejoice because Boaz is coming! My question to you is... Where will he find you? At home, depressed, unfulfilled and angry at God, or gleaning in the field. To glean in the field is to stay in your assignment, to stay in that purpose that the Lord has for you, to serve Him with all that you have.

Do me a favour this week, praise God, worship Him, praise Him just as if the answer to your prayers was right in front of you.

Rejoice and again I say rejoice because BOAZ IS COMING!

It's ok


For B and O

Maybe we can talk it over
And save our hopes and dreams
Though the waves seem endless
Somehow we'll cross this angry sea
With love all things are possible
If we just believe

I need to know, yes it's ok
Can i hurdle this storm, yes but only together
With love in our hearts, the only way
Somehow,things will work out just you wait and see
Oh it will, believe it will

See real life confrontations
Caused our vows to break
But i learned the word forgiveness
Can time chase the pain away
True love made our hearts inseparable
If we just believe

I need to know, yes it's okay
Can i hurdle this storm, yes but only together
With God in our hearts, the only way
Somehow,things will work out just you
Wait and see

But right now it hurts so bad
And feels so bad
But tomorrow waits with laughter
If we endure the tears then joy comes after

I need to know, you need to know,
It's gonna be okay
Can i hurdle this storm, only together
With love in our hearts, the only way
And somehow, somehow i can feel love again
Somehow, things have worked out
'cause you stayed with me
I'm glad to know it's okay, it's okay

Yo mama, it's your birthday

A strong woman
that's who you are
you have been through the fire
and the flood
and yet you have remained standing
trusting in the Lord
for His promises never fail

A beautiful woman
that's who you are
People see you and ask
"Is that your sister?"
I frown, you smile
and we both say no
you never forget to remind them
that I'm not even your first

A funny woman
that's who you are
we always sing
"man worry, man die
man no worry, man die
so why worry"
as we burst out laughing
even when the news is not so good

An intuitive woman
that's who you are
you understand
my smile
my frown
my silence
you see beyond the words from my lips
to my heart

So today, mamaG I celebrate you. June 22nd 1958..the Lord sent one of his special ones to earth. I thank Him for preserving you, for giving you the strength to stand through all that life has thrown at you. I thank Him because I know you haven't seen anything yet. He said there shall be more glory in your latter days. He will surely take you to the place that He has shown you in Jesus name. You are blessed.

So yummy grammy, keep on rocking! u biko!

The songs we sing.........

It's amazing how one can sing a song so much that it becomes routine and the words seem to lose their power. During worship one day, I felt the Holy Spirit speak to me and ask..."Do you really believe the words you are singing or is it just routine? consider what you are saying and tell me how your perspective of what you are facing changes". That was an eye opener for me and I am making a concious decision to meditate on the words of each song I sing and allow it to truly minister to me.

Today's song is He is able by Morris Chapman...unfortunately I couldn't put it on the playlist but this song has been such a blessing to me.

He is able
more than able
to accomplish what concerns me today
He is able
more than able
He can handle anything that comes my way
He is able
more than able
To do much more than I could ever dream
He is able
more than able
To make me what He wants me to be

Copyright 1988 and this arr. Copyright 1990 by Maranatha! Music. Words and Music by Rory Noland and Greg Ferguson

God is more than able to take care of all that comes my way. He can handle my issues, my fears and my worries. He can make me what He wants me to be. I love this God.

Because He lives
I can face tomorrow
Because He lives
all my fears are gone
Because I know
He knows my future
and my life is worth living
just because Christ lives

Amen and amen. Why worry about tomorrow..He said, "Be anxious for nothing, pray about everything." I can face the uncertainties of tomorrow because my Lord has already gone into my future and so there is no need to be afraid. My life is worth living because He too lives.

Amen and Amen

Have a blessed weekend. 2008 remains our year of UNCOMMON TESTIMONY.

A prayer

Lord save me
I feel like I'm drowning
I don't want to fail...AGAIN
Your word says you will guide me
Forgive me for doing things my own way
For not waiting for the still small voice
Help me Lord
For I know without you
I can do nothing
I put my trust in your word
Carry me today
I'll trust you with everything
Thank you for loving me
ALL the time

He said: "My darling daughter, I love you in a way that you can never understand. Relax and rest in me. Trust me that irrespective of what you go through...that I have got your back, that I will see you through, that I am always here. You have looked for what you thought you needed to be happy and satisfied but you can only find true satisfaction in me. All else fails, but my love cannot fail. It reaches out to pull you no matter the distance you have travelled. Look outside the window, look at the sky, the sun was out but now it isn't but I am still God. I know all and see all. My arms are always open for you to come and find rest in. So pick yourself up, square your shoulders, get your books out and stand tall because you will be ok. Put a smile on your face simply because the Father loves you and all His promises to you will come to pass. Sing a new song today, let it be a song of praise. Always remember that when you don't know what to do, it is always important to know where to go. Talk to me, i'll sort you out. I promise. I love you, I always have and I always will. It's the only thing I can't stop and I can't help. TRUST ME"
I said: Isn't God the BOMB!Honestly....

Who would have thought?

For who hath despised the day of small things? Zechariah 4:10a (KJV)

Brothers (and sisters!)I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I PRESS ON towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus Phillipians 3:13-14 (NIV) brackets and capitals mine

For I know the thoughts and plans I have for you, declares the Lord, "plans to PROSPER you and not to harm you, plans to give you HOPE and a FUTURE. Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) capitals mine

Who would have thought....

that the orphaned, captive of today would be a queen tomorrow (Esther)
that the ones called barren would have cause to laugh (Sarah, Hannah, Elizabeth)
that the one who stuttered would be bold enough to face Pharoah (Moses)
that the one who denied Christ would speak for Him and die for Him (Peter)
that the foreign widow would have a reason to smile again (Ruth)
that the tanned sherperd boy, forgotten by his own father would reign as king (David)
that after 34 years of paralysis, he would walk home carrying what had been carrying him (thanks, 30+!) (the ex-paralytic!)
that the one who went through the pit, slavery and prison would end up in the palace (Joeseph)
that irrespective of how your today seems, your TOMORROW will be greater as you walk with the Almighty, the TURN IT AROUND God. He is an UNCHANGING CHANGER. He does not change but there is no situation He cannot change.

Today, looking at our lives there might be a great discrepancy between what He has promised and what we are actually experiencing but He has asked us not to despise these days, they are days of small beginnings but thank God because He has greater plans in store for us in our future. We all have made mistakes but let's not let that stop us. Forget the mistakes of yesterday and press on towards what is ahead. There is breakthrough in front of you, there is a testimony in front of you, there is VICTORY in front of you.

Who would have thought, eh?!

Remain blessed and highly favoured. 2008 continues to remain our year of uncommon testimony in the mighty name of Jesus.

Your latter will be greater than your past
You will be blessed, more than you can ask
In spite of all that has been done
The best is yet to come
And your latter will be greater
Your latter will be greater than your past

im·pos·si·ble: not possible; unable to be, exist, happen, unable to be done, incapable of being true (

Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God ALL things are possible Matthew 19:26 (NIV)

June is our month of POSSIBILITIES at KICC. All that has been impossible with man is now possible with God. Let us think about the challenges that are facing us right now, how big they seem, how immovable they appear to be and let us remember that we serve a GOD who is bigger and will make those impossible things become POSSIBLE!

It was supposed to be impossible to have a child at that age, ask Sarah and Elizabeth
It was supposed to be impossible to walk on water, ask Peter
It was supposed to be impossible for a dead girl to come back to life, ask Jairus's daughter
It was supposed to be impossible to be raised from the dead after burial, ask Lazarus
It was supposed to be impossible to feed 5,000 with 5 loaves and 2 fish, ask those who partook of the meal
It was supposed to be impossible for him to walk again, ask the paralytic
It was supposed to be impossible for an 'immigrant'ex-con to become a Prime Minister, ask Joeseph
It was supposed to be impossible for water to turn to wine, ask the bridegroom at Cana
It is supposed to be impossible for that dream you have on the inside to be birthed into reality but is it really? I'm asking you!

The Bible is full of impossible situations turning around to become possible. We call them MIRACLES. That God is the same yesterday, today and forever. Let's exercise our faith muscles and dare to believe that those dreams He has given us will come to pass irrespective of how impossible they may seem in the realm of the natural. It is well.

2008 continues to remain our year of UNCOMMON testimonies. Keep me in your prayers.

Remain blessed and highly favoured
