iPray Fridays: Endurance, Strength to finish the race..

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

2 Timothy 4:7

...........Jesus said 'It is finished'........................

John 19:30

endurance: en-door-uhns (noun) the ability or strength to continue or last, esp. despite fatigue, stress, or other adverse conditions; stamina

One of my favourite similes about life is that 'life is like a race, it is a marathon and not a sprint'. You don't need to be an experienced runner to know that there is a difference between a marathon and a sprint, both types of races require different ingredients to achieve success because where a sprint calls for speed...a marathon calls for endurance. A marathon demands that you 'don't give up' in other words 'endure till the end'. I'm not a runner but when I see the look of satisfaction and achievement in the eyes of those who have completed a marathon it makes me want to don my running shoes and get some of that feeling myself.

According to the dictionary, endurance is the strength to continue...the key words being 'in spite of'. I'm learning that the storms of life are inevitable. I say it all the time but when the storm comes I act! As we run this marathon, there will be obstacles in our path, we will get tired, we will want to give up. I am currently writing my dissertation and honestly there was a time I gave up on it and on myself. It was just difficult, I couldn't make sense of anything anymore and it was like the Lord used that to show up an attitude where I am good at starting things but not enduring to the end to finish. Hmm! He said 'The winner of a marathon is not the one who finished first but the one who finished, endure till the end. The Lord is your strength.' Selah. 

So what do you want to give up on today? Not because it's the wrong thing but because you're tired and frustrated, nothing seems to give, others seem to be hitting that finish line and you're wondering what's wrong with you. Let's pray for endurance. In an earlier chapter in 2 Timothy, Paul told Timothy to 'endure hardness like a soldier'...the soldier comes home when the war is over. He endures till the end. The farmer endures till harvest time. Lord, you are our strength and our salvation. Give us the grace to endure till the end. Our Father is the Author, He is also the Finisher we have no choice but to do the same.

Remain blessed and highly favoured.

iWorship Wednesdays: Mighty God

This song gives me chills. He is indeed a mighty God. Look around you. If God could take His time with the lilies which today are and tomorrow are no more, how much more shall He take His time with me. I am the epitome of His creation. He is my God. Dear Lord, please readjust my vision like that of Elisha's servant that I may see that there are hosts of angels around me. Thank you Joe Praize.

Sorry about the video people, its just a collection of pictures but I'm sure you'll be blessed.

iPray Fridays: That your faith may not fail

"Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.”

Luke 22: 31 -32

The beautiful thing about God's word is the way a verse or passage you have read so many times can literally just jump off the page at you as if seeing it for the very first time. I had that experience this morning with the Scripture above. Later on in this same chapter, Peter is tested and he does fail...yet Jesus said he would pray for him that his faith may not fail. This means there is a difference between making a mistake (failing) and your faith failing. 

I don't know how it is that we become conditioned to believe that hard times and the challenges of life have to do with God punishing us. I must admit that in recent times I have been pondering on my understanding of who God is and how He relates with His children. Sometimes the God I see in the Bible is different from the God I have been taught about. Satan is the enemy, he wants to sift us as wheat..I just realised something as I write...wheat must be sifted to separate the chaff from the is uncomfortable but then how do we know that we know what we think we know if we aren't tested (I hope that makes sense)? 

Sometimes we find the sifting process too hard or too difficult or too long and somewhere our faith fails...we don't believe what we used to believe, we don't trust who we used to trust. However today like Jesus I pray that our faith does not fail, that we hold on through the sifting process. That even though like Peter we fail...the seed of faith on the inside of us remains viable and like a mustard seed no matter how tiny it is under the right conditions it will germinate and become a mighty tree. Most importantly, when we turn back to the right path we must share our story and encourage our brethren back to the Ancient paths.

iWorship Wednesdays: Mighty to save

We fear what we do not understand. Life is full of things we may never understand and questions we may never be able to give answers to. I'm beginning to learn that all that I can do is learn how to put my trust in the One who understands all things and has answers to all questions. He is indeed mighty to save. I pray to get to the place that I can say 'Even if he doesn't deliver, I will put my trust in Him.' God bless HillSong for their awesome worship ministry and for this song.

Everyone needs compassion,
Love that's never failing;
Let mercy fall on me.
Everyone needs forgiveness,
The kindness of a Saviour;
The Hope of nations.

Saviour, He can move the mountains,
My God is Mighty to save,
He is Mighty to save.
Forever, Author of salvation,
He rose and conquered the grave,
Jesus conquered the grave.

So take me as You find me,
All my fears and failures,
Fill my life again.
I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in,
Now I surrender.

My Saviour, He can move the mountains,
My God is Mighty to save,
He is Mighty to save.
Forever, Author of salvation,
He rose and conquered the grave,
Jesus conquered the grave. 

Shine your light and let the whole world see,
We're singing for the glory of the risen King...Jesus (x2)

My Saviour, you can move the mountains,
You are mighty to save,
You are mighty to save.
Forever, Author of Salvation,
You rose and conquered the grave,
Yes you conquered the grave

iPray Fridays: Works of my hands

May the favour of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us yes, establish the work of our hands.
 Psalm 90:17

I'm so excited about an iPray Friday feels like its been a very, very long time. I was going to pray about jobs because this is an area where I and a few friends need a testimony but I decided to look at it in a different way...looking at the bigger picture. The works of my hands. There aren't specific prayer points about jobs in the Bible but we know that God delights in us making profit. I still believe that children of God were created for more than just a job. We must all work and we all have been blessed by God with unique talents, skills and abilities that we may make profit from and use to the glory of God. I just don't want any job to keep body and soul together..I want to be a blessing in any organisation I find myself in and also be blessed by them. In this season I'm also praying for God to open my eyes to those abilities that I possess that I can use for His glory and that I can also turn into cash.

We take too many things for granted, our writing skills, our culinary skills, our organisational and communication skills. Dear Lord, open our eyes that we may see, may your favour rest upon us, establish the works of our hands..

So today, pray in your own words about the works of your hands, what do you want God to do for you and through you while you are here? Click comments and join us in prayer!

Let's pray together..

iWorship Wednesdays: Every season

I haven't listened to this song in years and when it came up via Shuffle I kept in on repeat...I just realised that even when I don't understand its wonderful to be loved by One who remains there through changing scenes and seasons. Its hard sometimes to see God as good through the horrible things that happen in life but which season is best...summer for its heat or spring for its newness? All seasons are necessary aren't they and does He cease to be God in winter's chill or autumn's nakedness?...Selah! Thanks Nicole Nordeman..

Every evening sky, an invitation 
To trace the patterned stars 
And early in July, a celebration 
For freedom that is ours 
And I notice You 
In children’s games 
In those who watch them from the shade 
Every drop of sun is full of fun and wonder 
You are summer

And even when the trees have just surrendered 
To the harvest time 
Forfeiting their leaves in late September 
And sending us inside 
Still I notice You when change begins 
And I am braced for colder winds 
I will offer thanks for what has been and was to come 
You are autumn

And everything in time and under heaven 
Finally falls asleep 
Wrapped in blankets white, all creation 
Shivers underneath 
And still I notice you 
When branches crack 
And in my breath on frosted glass 
Even now in death, You open doors for life to enter 
You are winter

And everything that’s new has bravely surfaced 
Teaching us to breathe 
What was frozen through is newly purposed 
Turning all things green 
So it is with You 
And how You make me new 
With every season’s change 
And so it will be 
As You are re-creating me 
Summer, autumn, winter, spring

Je ne comprends pas...

Hi everyone

I miss writing, I miss blogging. I've been working on my dissertation and writing simply became a chore and I just needed a break. I'm still kind of on a semi-break but I hope I am gradually coming out of my comatose state because I have really missed it. I was talking to a friend at the weekend and he gave a description of me that made me laugh. Its funny how people can see strength where we only see weakness and imperfection.

A week ago, a friend shared about how her friend had passed away in childbirth. She asked a question 'Does God not answer prayers?' Hmm, it was an honest question and it got me thinking about so many other questions I had that I like to gloss over with my 'religious varnish', there is a way that I think that to ask a question is to doubt....that to say "Je ne comprends pas....I do not understand" means I am one of little faith.

I do not understand why we prayed and she died. I do not understand why Elisha died of an illness and yet his bones raised a dead man. I do not understand the ways of God. I do not understand what part I play in the scheme of things, I always see my life as a piece of a big puzzle where only God sees the big picture. I don't think I need to understand, just trust. Sometimes my faith is so weak, I wish I was perfect but I am not. I wish I always had answers but I don't.

One thing I have learnt in the past few months...God doesn't give up on us, usually we give up on Him. My prayer is that even when I do not understand...I reach out my hand to Him even in the dark and cry..'Lord help me.' I just needed to write that today, seems so random. Oh well! Have a blessed day people.

iPray Fridays: iTestify

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. Let the redeemed of the LORD say this— those he redeemed from the hand of the foe, those he gathered from the lands, from east and west, from north and south. Some wandered in desert wastelands, finding no way to a city where they could settle. They were hungry and thirsty,and their lives ebbed away. Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He led them by a straight way to a city where they could settle. Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men, for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things. Some sat in darkness and the deepest gloom, prisoners suffering in iron chains, for they had rebelled against the words of God and despised the counsel of the Most High. So he subjected them to bitter labor; they stumbled, and there was no one to help. Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He brought them out of darkness and the deepest gloom and broke away their chains. Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men.....

Psalms 107: 1-15

....They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.

Revelations 12:11

Hello people,

Thank God its another iPray Friday and we are here to see it. Chineke Imela. Ose Baba, Nagode Yesu. Today's iPray is about testifying to the Lords goodness in our lives. Sometimes we think we need a 'big' testimony before we share it. Just like any relationship, learning to appreciate what we think are the 'little' things make room for even bigger things to happen. We too often take our breath for granted. I testify today that I am alive, I am still in the battle, I have not finished the race but I am still running. Its a marathon and not a sprint..I have stumbled but not out. The setback is for my step up and I am not taking no for an answer.

So today is Testimony Friday..has the Lord been good to you? This week, this month, this the members of your family? You don't need to close a multi million pound deal to testify....testify of His faithfulness to you. Look forward to hearing from you. Click comments!

Let's pray together.

iWorship Wednesdays: Ani'pakabara (Whatever happens)

Hi people

Its the middle of the week, how things going? Trust well. I loved this song even when I didn't know what the title meant. The video has subtitles. I hear she is singing in Kalabari...that's a language spoken in the South South region of Nigeria. Languages are so beautiful because we have that many more ways to praise Our Creator, Our King..there's a part of this song I love so much 'Hold me Lord, lest I fall'. Thanks Ibiso, you're such a blessing.

Whatever happens, we can trust we have a God who knows the number of hairs on our head (even in the weave!).

Remain blessed and highly favoured.

iPray Fridays: SIMplicity

And when you come before God, don't turn that into a theatrical production either. All these people making a regular show out of their prayers, hoping for stardom! Do you think God sits in a box seat? "Here's what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won't be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace. "The world is full of so-called prayer warriors who are prayer-ignorant. They're full of formulas and programs and advice, peddling techniques for getting what you want from God. Don't fall for that nonsense. This is your Father you are dealing with, and he knows better than you what you need. With a God like this loving you, you can pray very simply.

Matthew 6: 5-13 (The Message)

"Its not how long u pray, its how strong you pray! You can pray for 5 hours but if there's no faith behind your prayer, there's no power."

@GuvnaB from Twitter

I really miss blogging, both reading and writing. I used to take the fact that I could blog for granted. Now its one of the things I'm grateful about. Lord, thank you that Zoe can! I'm in a season where I have a lot of questions, maybe its the scientist in me or just a phase. There is a way in which one is raised not to ask questions, just to accept what one is given as the status quo. That's fine but for those who have questions, I am learning that who you ask is just as important as what you ask!

Reading my Bible this morning and this passage just jumped up at me. Sometimes when people ask me why I love to pray, I respond with 'I'm not so sure I love to pray, I'm learning'. I will be honest and confess that I have periods of time where I feel so distant from God. I don't read or study my Bible and I don't 'pray'. Yes 'pray' because I lay on my bed one morning and I heard a familiar voice whisper 'so if it isn't formal, does it mean it isn't conversation' those were not the exact words but something to that effect. 'Each time you want to speak to your dad or friends, do you wear something special or put some makeup on. In an emergency, do you consider your looks or the fact that you may not have been getting along or do you just reach out to the one who can help you sort your situation out! Do you only speak to them in public when others are around and ignore them in private?'

What is prayer? We say it is communication with God. Communication involves at least 2 parties and consists of speaking, listening and understanding. It is a 2 way thing. We speak to God and He speaks to us too. So many times I get caught up in a legalistic and religious view of things. When I pray sometimes people laugh and I do admit my prayers may be a bit funny but that's because I am funny and I believe God loves me like that. I need to search the Scriptures but I believe that most of the prayers Jesus made were in private and his public prayers were short and direct. Hmm, I believe a big barrier to effective prayer is this notion that it's like a recipe where you need to mix this and that, keep at this temperature for this long before you can get the right result. I want to challenge that and say we should come to God on the basis of relationship. Sometimes I talk for hours to a friend, sometimes a few minutes. I do not love them more when I speak longer or less when I speak shorter. The most important thing is that I communicate with them, pass the message across, honestly and openly. Also come believing that He hears and He has the power to change situations.

Its funny that I try to hide things from God, the One who sees all and knows all. Anyway today's iPray is about simplicity..not length, just honesty and openness between you and your daddy. If Jesus was sitting right next to you on a bench in a park and you had your head on his shoulder what would you tell him....even if you had to whisper it? Say it today. If you want to share it here, feel free to leave it as a comment.

Let's pray together.

iWorship Wednesdays: Psalm 23


I love this song. So many times I forget that I have a Shepherd and I don't need to be afraid of anything. He may use His rod and staff but I'm glad that I'm not alone in this journey. Be blessed. Thank you Juanita!

Your hands reached into the depths of darkness,
Your arms pulled me to the light above them.
Your voice spoke the words that broke my heart,
and Your eyes burn with holy passion, fire, and love.

You lead me beside the quiet waters,
You are in the shadows of death's darkened doors.
You make tables right before my enemies,
You take oil and then You pour it over me.

You are my shepherd,
I will fear no evil (fear no evil).
You are my shepherd,
I will fear no evil (fear no evil).
Surely goodness and mercy,
shall cover me.

All the days of my life,
they shall cover me.
Surely I am going to dwell
in the house of the Lord
forever and ever,
forever and ever.

iWorship Wednesdays: Any Crown

I can't seem to get enough of this song. I'm sure it's not new but I didn't hear it until last week. I've been so cold in recent days, in more ways than one but when I listened to this song I was reminded of who the Lover of my Soul was and there truly is no crown that can compare with Him. For me, this song is a prayer, it is who I want to be. Read the words and hopefully fall deeper in love with your Father who is also your Husband..I used to wonder about that but when you love someone there is a way they become your everything. Be blessed. I'm sorry for my inconsistent posts. Love you all. Thanks for spending time with 'me'. Thanks Hillsong and Juanita Bynum for this.

Remain blessed and highly favoured.


Any crown I've ever won
I laid it down
Any praise I've ever gained
I give it all to you
There is nothing in the world
That can compare
You alone are worthy

You are near to those who call upon your name
You're ever giving, ever loving
You remain the same
For you open up your hands and satisfy
Give you all the glory
Give you all the glory

You are worthy oh Lord of all honor
You are worthy to receive our praise
In your presence I live
And with all I have to give
I will worship you

You are near to those
Who call upon your name
You're ever giving, ever loving
You remain the same
For you open up your hands and satisfy
Give you all the glory
Give you all the glory

You are worthy oh Lord of all honor
You are worthy to receive our praise
In your presence I live
And with all I have to give
I will worship you

All my years
Glorify your holy name
Glorify your holy name

iPray Fridays: Divine Intervention

Alarmed, Jehoshaphat resolved to inquire of the LORD, and he proclaimed a fast for all Judah.  The people of Judah came together to seek help from the LORD; indeed, they came from every town in Judah to seek him.

2nd Chronicles 20: 3-4

'Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God's. Tomorrow march down against them. They will be climbing up by the Pass of Ziz, and you will find them at the end of the gorge in the Desert of Jeruel. You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.' "

2nd Chronicles 20: 15b-17

Dear Lord, I thank you for here we are once again, alive and able to lay before you, lift up our voices before you, bring our petitions before you. We acknowledge that there is no one like you. You are both willing and able to do of your good pleasure. You are a great and mighty King. Able to do exceedingly, abundantly, far above all that we can ask and imagine. Thank You Lord for the manifold blessings you have showered on us, both those that we are able to remember at this time and those that we cannot. Thank you Jesus, thank you Lord.

My God and my King. I acknowledge that life without you is truly like I sang as a child, 'like a doughnut...with a hole in the middle of my heart'. Life is tough but with Jesus in the boat I am always assured of making it to the other side. The One who has total command of the winds and the waves. Today O Lord, we bring pressing issues, the ones that require divine intervention before your throne of grace. The Ones that you deal with exclusively...'that all may know the hand of the Lord has done this'. Dear Lord as we pray today, we bring letters that speak against our peace before you, we bring situations that we are not even able to put into words, we acknowledge that You are our help and there is no other.

Like Jehoshaphat we bring our issues before your throne and wait and listen for divine instruction on what we should do, how we should tackle the issues. Fight or hold our peace; speak or keep quiet; run or stand still. The horse is made ready for the day of battle but victory comes from you O Lord. This is our year of victory, our year of a new song. 2010..the year of 'The Lord has done this and it is marvellous in our eyes'..Amen and Amen.

So dear brothers and sisters, say a prayer, write your prayers in the comment section...He hears, He answers.

iPray...will you?

Remain blessed and highly favoured. This is our season to reign, our season to shine.

iWorship Wednesdays: God is all around us

Hi people,

I must apologise, this song was originally by the group Anointed but couldn't get any videos of them on Youtube. I think this group did a good job of presenting the song, meditate on the words if you can. In a world of transient relationships and quickly changing circumstances, I'm glad that there is a constant in my life which is that God is around. The word says that 'He is a very PRESENT help in the time of need'...He is 'always there'. Be blessed.

God is all around us

Consider the kindness of a stranger
That passes by your way
For there are ties that bind us
Together, forever

Touching the broken-hearted friend
Brings healing to the soul within
There’s evidence everywhere
Of His love, sweet love

God is all around us
Even when we feel we’re all alone
I can hear Him whispering my name
Telling me that I’m His own
God is all around us
Even when we feel all hope is gone

God is all around
God is all around

They’re so many lessons yet to learn
And I don’t know where the road will turn
He always finds a way
To guide me, remind me

That if I should fall into the night
He will be there, a shining light
For all the world to see
With open arms for you and me


God is all around (He’ll hear your prayers)
If you just reach out (He’s everywhere)
God is everywhere

God is all around us
When you feel all alone
Can’t you hear Him whispering your name
Telling you that you’re His own
For God is all around
God is all around

iPray Fridays: Jehovah Rapha

He said, "If you listen carefully to the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you."

Exodus 15:26

But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall.

Malachi 4:2

/heal·ing/ [hee-ling]:  growing sound; getting well; mending. (

I love the sound of that..growing sound, getting well, mending. This is God's desire for us that we be made well. I'm sure each and every one of us knows someone who could do with God's healing touch today. Today we make a decision to stand in the gap for them. If you don't you can pray for me (my bank account needs!). When Jesus came to earth, He was moved with compassion..I can't recount how many times He said 'Rise up and walk' or 'Be healed' or 'Be opened'. Today we carry the power of the Holy Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead within us so we too cry out and say 'Rise up and walk', 'Be healed' and 'Be opened'.
Today I want us to go deeper, for some of us we need healing on the inside..there is nothing physical about our ailment but we still need that touch from God. He is willing and able..there is nothing He cannot do. No, I don't know why sometimes we pray and it seems like there is no answer. Only God knows that...I will still pray anyway. I remember asking my mum why Elisha died from an illness and yet his dry bones raised a man from the dead. Only God knows that...I will still pray anyway.
iPray...will you?
Remain blessed and highly favoured. Our God still answers prayer.
N.B Feel free to use the comments to write down your prayers, anonymously if you prefer in case you want to mention cases by name. God sees your heart and He knows who and what you are praying about. Remember to thank Him in advance and share your testimonies too.
Another important point that just came to me...there is a difference between health and healing. To the man by the pool, Jesus said after his healing '...Go and sin no more'...for some of us its 'Go and exercise more' or 'Go and change your diet' or 'Go and rest a little'...we are spirits that live in bodies. Our spirits are eternal, our bodies are not. Ask God for the grace to take the very best care of your body that you can. It is well.

iWorship Wednesdays; Trouble aint..

Hi people

Sorry for the break in transmission. It's been real busy at my end but I felt very guilty for abandoning the blog. Wow..2010 has been a year but I thank God. This song really got me through some hard times this year. Thanks to Ministers Erica and Tina...I'm sure it will bless you as well.

Trouble aint

Can't promise you no pain no tears
Can't say you'll never be lonely again
My friend
But you see there's a remedy
There's someone who's got
Everything you need
And if you hear what I'm saying
I'm sure you'll agree that?-

Trouble ain't gon' be here everyday
Even though sometimes it seems like it won't go away
After you've done all that you know how
Just to keep from breaking down
Just believe it's gonna get much better
After awhile

Sometimes I sit back and I think about
Where I've been and where I am
Right now
See I wasn't quite sure you could
Hear me calling
But you were there to catch me
When I was falling
So I know

Oh sometimes we may just want to cry
Then you tell me it's gonna be alright
You can't go through life
Living problem free
But you got to keep the faith
And you got to believe

So the next time you're feeling
A little frustration
And you going through
A bad situation
Remind yourself that it won't last for long
'Cause soon it will be over and you'll be moving

iPray Fridays: This time next year according to the season of life

Then the Lord said, "I will surely return to you about this time next year, and Sarah your wife will have a son."

Genesis 18:10a

Now the Lord was gracious to Sarah as he had said, and the Lord did for Sarah what he had promised.

Genesis 21:1

Thank God it's another iPray Friday. Lord, thank you because today meets us alive and well. There are so many things we take for granted, that I take for granted such as each and every Friday I will be here to pray. That I even have an avenue to pray and a platform to pray, Daddy I'm grateful. For the faithful brothers and sisters that join me to pray, Father I'm grateful. Lord, that I serve a prayer answering God, I am indeed grateful. Thank you so much for everything.

Today I would like to pray for couples who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb. I have a number of friends where this used to be the case but to the glory of God, the story has changed. It's difficult to explain the different emotions that come with trying to have a baby which should be relatively simple but month after month knowing that not just yet. Doctors do their best, science can explain to the best of its ability but our Creator always has the final verdict. I trust God and believe that if He could do it for Abraham and Sarah, I'm not sure there's anyone whose situation was more impossible than that.

After many disappointments, its easy for one's faith to fail but I pray today that the joy of the Lord will be your strength. That your days of laughter, your Isaac is not far ahead. That yes, even if I don't know you in the season of life I pray that you will have your own testimony in Jesus name. For the one who cries and asks God 'Why' and 'When', I don't have any answers but to encourage you that no matter how you feel God sees you and knows you by name and He will meet you. I pray that He gives you a specific word that you can run with.

People can we pray for our brothers and sisters today. If you know anyone you would like to pray for specifically, you can use them as a point of contact..anon if you please. I believe God, you shall laugh soon in Jesus name. You can also pray for expectant mothers...there are so many around me it's almost like an epidemic (lol) that God will see them through in Jesus name.

Remain blessed and highly favoured.

iWorship Wednesdays: Calling my name

I don't know about you but I have messed up so many times. With God, with people. When I listen to this song, I see myself sitting in a room all by myself musing over what I've done wrong. I hear the voices of the others, the 'good' ones having fellowship with their Father, they are laughing, they are fellowshipping...all of a sudden there is silence as I hear His voice call out...Where is Zoe? I want her here with me. He's always called me, He's always kept His arms open. O Lord, I desperately want to be home with you....always.

It's quite a long song and I haven't included the lyrics but it's a beautiful song that reminds me of the love our Heavenly Father has for us. He knows us as individuals, He knows our names. Our names are inscribed in the palms of His hands. He's calling your name today....will you answer?

iMeditate Mondays

Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.

Joshua 1:8

/meditate/: To plan, consider or think of doing..

Hi people,

iMeditate Mondays is about delving deeper. About the word becoming flesh and living amongst us. I was reading some notes from the sermons I sat in last year and wondering...what happens after my pen has created 'stories' from what Pastor has said? How has my life changed based on the words I have just listened to? It isn't enough to write's like basing your university degree on how many lectures you attended or how many notes you wrote but on what was learnt. For learning to take place, one must reflect; reflect on the new knowledge coming in and construct new realities.

The sermon I listened to yesterday was about doing the Father's will. In Samaria, Jesus disciples brought him some food and He said his food was to do His Father's will (John 4). The harvest is ripe, the workers are few. The questions I'm asking myself..

What does being relevant in the Kingdom of God mean? Is this just about being a church worker? Someone asked me a question on Twitter recently about whether it was essential one became a worker in their church...what do you think? What does doing the Father's will mean to be personally?
