Be The Channel/ Vessel of Change and Transformation

Have you ever wondered why you are blessed with what you have, Have you have sat back to ask why do i have this in my possession, Have you ever asked yourself why you are in the place where you are today, Have you looked around and asked yourself how can i be of help, Have you ever asked yourself how you got where you are today.

There is a notion that runs in our minds that we live for ourselves and us alone, true satisfaction can never come from self gratification because none of us is meant to live like that and more so with such thinking, we are more blessed when we share our lives, we are happier when we make someone else smile, it comes from the hearts of hearts, you want to see a life get better, you want to see a life improved.

When Istudy my life and look back, there are so many things i am grateful for even though i might have not had the best of times while growing up, but there are victories to look at and draw strength from, there are moments of joy to look at and say it was a good moment, when i sit back and remember how i did discussions with my friends to excel in my exams, it gives me joy and i can say firmly "it is the power of not working alone but coming together and sharing ideas for everyone's common good". 

When i look back at the moment when i was being sent home for not paying my school fees dues, those were sad moments you know very well that there was lots you were going to miss, the classes, the lessons, the sports with your friends hence leaving room for catch-up if indeed the fees was paid earlier, I look back and say why didn't God give my parents enough money to see me through not knowing they were working their tails off to make sure i got an education, indeed we ought to be grateful because as young people yours and my work was to study and learn and their work was to look for provision to make sure you and i got the best even though it was little, I would jump for joy when the fees was paid and I were allowed back in school to resume your studies.

When I look back at the sacrifices my mother made, I was told the story by her of how she had to make ends meet for us to have supplements of a better life, cooking with firewood like we were in a village setting, in the place of milk we took porridge because hey the dime wasn't there to buy such good things, infact i do remember that when we had milk and bread we were so happy and hey you wouldn't want to miss that breakfast but God through his mercy took us through and now we are grown, she opened up a kiosk, selling all the small groceries in the upscale area of Bugolobi to be specific Bazarabuzi drive street. he had to brew Waragi (local alcohol) to see that we had some money. My dad was working in the ministry information and the money wasn't enough because the home did not only house his own children but all sorts of people who were not relatives and today their lives are much better, many live like Kings and i guess they can remember how big my father's heart was to accept very many people, can you imagine living in a home with your own 6 children, some of his brothers and other relatives from my mums and people we did not know so you can do your mathematics, all i can say is with his BIG HEART he provided shelter and food for the many around, he did his part, he created an Impact that shall last forever.

A man or woman, young or old, boy or girl should never ever be happy when their friends, neighbors, colleagues are not doing well, we should be able to send a helping hand, we should be able to tell someone the secret of our success, we should be able to share the reason for our hope and the reason for our patience, we should be able to look around and say How can I help you, How can I be of help, How can i make a difference in your life, I know when we think about this many times we want to run to the thought of money, it is just one of those tools that can make a difference - it is so powerful that King Solomon says it answers all things. It doesn't take so much to tell someone that what they are doing is wrong, just an opportunity like that can change a life, if someone was struggling financially and you know someone else who can give financial help and more so financial knowledge to enable someone have good financial practice, that wouldn't take away anything from you, it still doesn't hurt to tell someone this is how life should be best own your values and principles.

I do this small writing with passion telling us you can be a vessel, you can be a vehicle, you can be that person who can make a difference in someone's life, you are that wind of change, don't sit on your talents, gifts, opportunities- be that channel of change God created you to be. You have a purpose and that purpose should transcend beyond your comfort, being yourself. Just Imagine when you touch that one life - How many lives do you think he/she will touch, you can't even fathom because one day the same will be done to your child just because of that great seed you have sowed of love, kindness, compassion, care etc

Be that Vessel of Change and Transformation, my parents did what they could, my uncles and aunts played their part, my brothers and sisters did their part, my teachers played their part, my friends and colleagues played their part, the church plays its part everyday and more so God plays his part everyday, #Can you Play your part TODAY.

Picked this form one of our bible studies we did a year back or 2. It  blest me and it will bless u.

Many a times we are faced with situations and challenges that test our courage. 
Because we are not brave enough we lay back in fear, we refuse to proceed because we think we have not got what it takes. People who change the face of the world are courageous people, those who will walk above their fear and face all odds without giving room to worry and remorse.

Uncourageous people are those who discourage the weak and rob them too of their little faith that a mountain can be moved. Courage is giving up your fear for what’s in store for you irrespective of whether you have got what it takes or not but operating in faith and confidence in God hence believing him without a doubt to pull you through.

If God has spoken about your possession, about your future or even present it doesn’t matter who inhabits or who is in control, because you have an assurance that God is with you and he will never leave you nor forsake you. If you lay back and operate in fear your courage is robbed by the fact that you’ve let fear crip in, you deny yourself your own success which would come with the possibility that God is backing you up and not that it can’t be done because your young, small, weak, vulnerable and that you don’t have what it takes. You’re more than all that because the power of the Great I AM is in you that can work against all negative thoughts.

The courage of one lifts up the hearts of many and creates a determination which can’t be stopped no matter how hard things may be. 

When you discourage people this brings about complaints that cause a sense of loss of direction cause you choose to dwell on your weakness and not the one who makes you strong. Joshua and Caleb thought positively and hence reflected the courage they had because they trusted in the Lord who had spoken and was true to his word because he was able to deliver the promised land however much the amalekites and giants had taken over as they even were stronger than they but this made them different from the other spies because they knew their God was bigger than the challenge before them.

Our challenge is to invoke a life of courage in you that goes against all odds lets learn from Joshua and Caleb from Numbers 13:1-33 and Numbers 14:1-38

Note: Their courage was really tested when they where to take over their land and not when they were spying. It’s in the doing that we get tested and not the seeing.

Walking you through it..

Hey Friends, Family, Colleagues....I fell on this document i wrote some years back and it blest me, thought i could share it with someone out there and tell you God will walk you through it....

Ever looked around you and seen everything fail, ever hoped and dreamed that you would be somewhere, ever thought that your turning point was right about that corner. 

Yes this happens a lot, in fact it does happen when you have worked harder than you expected, it happens when you have clinched a serious deal and the returns were worthwhile but what came of it was just peanut it wasn't even equivalent to the sweat that dropped from you. It wasn't equivalent to the amount of time invested and creativity imparted.

Sometimes you think that the only option is to drop back and fade away slowly and see all your efforts equate to zero. I think it’s when you get the disbelief that the choices you made are wrong, that nothing good can come out of you, that you are a nobody, that you are a failure.

I have come to believe that “we are not alone”, that we don’t have to give up so easily because we are more than close to our break through, we don’t have to faint (loose heart).

When we keep our heads up and believe that we are not less than what we ought to be then we can triumph, then we are champions of our lives, more so God is with us as long as we acknowledge him in all we do, he will make the most out of us, he will unlock every gift and potential to take you the “place” you have imagined, the one you have dreamed of, the one you have been seeking answers for.

Sometimes it’s just  a “trust” away, the trust you had lost, it needs to be regained and engaged to the fullest of commitment, to trust is to commit.
We let go of our fundamental pillars that help us carry on in life, the belief you were taught, the one you had engineered by your faith, I ask the same question in such moments, “Where is my faith?”, “Why am I failing”?, but at times you got to tell yourself I won’t stop believing.

I've come to learn that what you believe God for he will give that thing, I draw my inspiration from John 1:12...”To them that believed he gave them the right to become children of God”. This just amazes me because my belief equals my rightful possession, it is my right!

When God walks you through he never counts your failure against you, he never counts your past against you, and he brings freshness upon you, he brings a revelation to take you through because he is with you, he is besides you to count on you that you will triumph, to trust you and be gracious to you. He loves the fact that he is making you into his likeness and you got to go through some stuff.
