But Divide Your Investments Among Many Places

BUT DIVIDE YOUR INVESTMENTS AMONG MANY PLACES,for you don't know what risks may lie ahead.

Life is full of so many ups and downs, highs and lows. Imagine yourself having no salaried job in the next days or months, some people live life fully guaranteed with job security yet tragedy can happen any time.
I don't wake up late or sleep whole day - that is total disaster to my life and to the legacy I want my children to have. I wake up and do work - work is a gift and it isn't necessarily a job (even within a job you work just that it is defined for you). I use the skills I have at hand to earn from them and God is being faithful. 
Do you know that your driving permit can take you places, Do you know that the way you teach from the different things God has taught you or done can open doors for you and you are gifted with monies you don't even expect. Do you know that your integrity can grant you favor before people and today or tomorrow your getting a call and someone says they felt like getting you this and that, but you also can't just live from miracle to miracle, remember a little sleep, a little slumber, a litter folding of the arms - poverty knocks at your door. Do you know that you get called because of recommendations from friends and family because of the wonderful example you have set and how you have lived out your life - it is all a testimony. Do you know that those many cars you have parked and aren't being used, can earn you money instead of them being wasted away to luxury or that computer that seems old but just put way in the hip at the garage or that space behind your house that can enable you plant home grown foods. Instead of worrying, get up and put to task what you have been learning everyday.
Here are few key principles from the bible that can prepare you for hard times and in such hard times you can be prosperous just like ISAAC in the bible when they were struck by famine see Genesis 26:1-22
I like vs 22 .. this is what it says
Genesis 1:22 Abandoning that one, Isaac moved on and dug another well. This time there was no dispute over it, so Isaac named the place Rehoboth (which means “open space”), for he said, “At last the Lord has created enough space for us to prosper in this land.”
In hard times, when you don't give up, you will often find that open space, but the question is what do you do?, don't sit down waiting for someone to come and dig a well for you, someone to come and wake you up to think or start something to generate income or even volunteer. God has given us many open spaces or opportunities, we just don't want to use what is in our hands. In hard times purpose is born and passion is fueled, you basically have no limits and no time to cry and say this or that.

Take these lessons from Ecclesiastes 11
1 Send your grain across the seas,
and in time, profits will flow back to you.[a]

ENGAGE IN TRADE - You can always EARN through selling and buying (it could be a service, product, skill etc)
2 But divide your investments among many places,[b]
for you do not know what risks might lie ahead.

MAKE INVESTMENTS - investing itself is a risk but there is nothing that is so clear in life, you have to have faith, even starting a business is a risk but you have to spread your investment not just in one place but in many. The parable of the TALENTS explains this as well.
3 When clouds are heavy, the rains come down.
Whether a tree falls north or south, it stays where it falls.

IT CAN RAIN any moment - how prepared are you.
4 Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant.
If they watch every cloud, they never harvest.

5 Just as you cannot understand the path of the wind or the mystery of a tiny baby growing in its mother’s womb,[c] so you cannot understand the activity of God, who does all things.
EVENTUALLY GOD DOES ALL THINGS - remember commit your plans (Whatever they are ) to the Lord he has the final say at-least give him what to work with not just an empty hand and mind.
6 Plant your seed in the morning and keep busy all afternoon, for you don’t know if profit will come from one activity or another—or maybe both.

You Don't Have To Be Old To Own A House

There is no greater story I have encountered today like the story of this young man called Nicholas Luwuge from Kalangala. The daily monitor of today has published a story of how he has built a two-roomed house see this link for more If there is any story of great inspiration today, it is from this young man. There is so much we can learn. 

We often look for INSPIRATION from very far, yet we have some of it just around us, The story of this young man should challenge all of us, A 13 Year OLD building a 2 roomed house, it might not be to the standard many of us want but the mere fact he did it through Hard Work, Desire to Change his mother situation and Saving money to make sure that he meets his goal of a house, this should be great inspiration for one to take in and sit back and think about all the resources they have and what it can do, you could be having more and you don't know what to do with it, let this young man's story push you to BELIEVE. To add on, this man pays his own school fees and feeds his family.

Recently while listening to Richard Senkwale, he made a very strong statement and he said that, “A good Saver must save 25% and above”. He also mentioned and said that a PLAN compels us to work harder and that if we aren’t disciplined, there is no way we can save. I want to believe that this young man embodied these principles and applied them and put them to work.

The things that seem so hard in life were done by men and women who sat back and told themselves that I will do this and that. I will achieve my dream no matter what. Often such people turn a deaf ear to impossibilities and believe without a doubt that it is possible to rise above the challenge. There is nothing that can’t be done, you just have to put your mind to it and keep trying without giving up.

Scripture reference:
Luke 14:28 "Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won't you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it?
Proverbs 21:5 Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.
Proverbs 10:5 
Poor is he who works with a negligent hand, But the hand of the diligent makes rich

Why It Is Important To Gain Skills Or Skill Yourself

There are many opportunities but very few people with Skills to take them on. I have read in the papers through the years how the point of skilling University students is very important. Many have even been encouraged to go to Technical and Vocational Schools but somehow we have been trained to go to school, get a degree and then get a job but times have changed and the job or economic Market is not just after people with degrees but after people who can use their skills to improve lives, create more jobs and be Entrepreneurs etc.

When I was at work last year, I saw a gap that needed to be addressed and I knew that to address that gap, I need to gain some skills in using PHOTOSHOP, you know the process of learning is never easy, so i started on the journey by looking at YouTube videos for beginners, checking out how to do simple designs and hence input my ART skills and see what comes out and like a baby I took it one crawl and step at a time. I have improved a bit as am still learning and the skills are really coming in handy.

It is important for us to gain skills especially if you want to venture into something that can help you in the long run, sometimes you might not have the money to take you to a training but you have an Internet resource at your disposal, why not use it and enhance your skills. One day you could be talking and saying you can do this and that and it will be a great door opening for you. Learn a new skill and try and master it so that you can become good at it.

If you also have the money to take you for training, please invest in yourself. My good friend Andrew Odoch Umahtete, Edward Hire Yosia, Luwum Daniel have been great examples of acquiring knowledge of the different ventures they have gotten into, if you want to be a leadership coach or Gym Trainer, do whatever it takes to learn about that trade.

The bible says this in 1 Peter 2:5 (NIV) For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge;
We need knowledge, this has been said a thousand times, knoweldge is important as it gives you the keys of what seemed unknown but is now known.

Proverbs 18:16 (KJV) says A man's gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.
Your skill can become your gift. So gain SKILLS and lets skill Uganda and many other people.

Then when you have gained a skill don't be afraid to share and teach others, in teaching you are causing a ripple effect and your are taking yourself higher as people will begin to refer many to you and it can become a great source of income and networks as well.
Today, I post a video that I tried out using photoshop premier cs6 to develop, It is not the best, but I thought I could learn a few things with video editing, I took this video from my laptop and used the Photoshop at my disposal #Enjoy

Jesus Is Coming, Yeshua Is Coming, When I Don't Know But He Is Coming


This post is not about prophetic gymnastic of you are going to build a big building, or you are going to drive the most expensive car or that am going to guess your brother or sisters name or where you work or your birthday. It is about the Lord's coming and about our hearts being prepared.

I remember when we were a little younger, when we heard in a message that Jesus was coming, we kind of freaked out and tried to live a good life from that point of the message until a certain point when it became a normal message and we got used to it. Yesterday while meditating I was reminded in my Spirit that Indeed JESUS IS COMING. The question is how prepared are we for his coming, are we excited that we shall be rejoined with our KING or is it because we still want to do and accomplish certain things that in any case can't add anything to our lives, there is nothing that is bigger than JESUS, He is life, He is everything.

God reminded me of how when we were kids and we heard our parents were on the way home from work, we would do everything to make sure the house was in order so that nothing bad is found, But what I got from that message is that we took our parents coming serious because they told us to abide by certain things and we wanted them to find them in order lest we would be spanked but for a good cause so that we grow up responsible people.

What strongly came into my heart is where has the REVERENCE and FEAR for God gone?, we are now living in a time where it's a normal message, people no longer break into repentance at the message of the cross because we think the subject of Jesus coming back is a hoax or it will take forever, my friends, family and colleagues, the King of kings will come and he is coming, when I don't know but you are better off being prepared than living your life without Christ himself who is our hope of glory.

Wickedness greatly increases and these were spoken of by the Lord Jesus himself, people's hearts are growing cold, we are preoccupying ourselves with the CARCASS of this world, we are like vultures gathering and feeding on the CARCASS and our souls are dying and growing cold, we are no longer sensitive to his word, we read and study it in passing just to show face that you know a scripture but you totally deny it's power, we are in a time where we are chasing after men and women of God instead of chasing after the God who created men and women, we are in a time where the world is redefining very many things, redefining what a man or woman can be, changing the story of marriage to something else, Bibles have been kicked out of schools, prayer is being stifled and you can't mention the name of Jesus because it is offensive we are in a time where our total trust is in men, women, property, power instead of in the most high God himself. We are in a time where selfishness increases, It is all about one's life, people are doing whatever it takes to be known and to get fame, pride has taken over and humility has taken a back sit, Lust is the order of the day, we dress in ways that look trendy whether it is revealing or not we don't care because we call it FASHION. It is good to be in the SPOTLIGHT but it is better to be the LIGHT of God in this world. The Lord comes with love and rebuke, he still is very merciful upon us but how ready are we, are you going to be like the five foolish virgins or the five wise virgins, the choice is entirely yours.

People have died before his coming and they have lived reckless lives without God, Don't wait to come to the Lord when you are too old or too weak, Do it when you are young, Do it when you still can impact lives for Jesus, I know it's never too late, God can snatch you at anytime even on your death bed but It's a beautiful experience to live for Christ and share about what he did on the cross in a serious way.


What Are You Doing About Your Situation?

"...Whatsoever He Doeth Shall Prosper" - Psalm 1:3

Are you the type that wakes up in the morning and you have nothing to do or you are waiting to be told what to do. Are you the one who keeps planning but never implements, Are you the one who says I will do this when I have all the right ingredients.

The ACT of doing something opens the door to prosper. Whatever you do will prosper not what you think about and just leave it lying there. Ideas have been snatched and taken up by serious people who see the bigger picture.

As you arise this morning, Is it something you wanted to blog about, Is it an improvement in your business or ministry that you want to do, Is it a new painting you want to put in your house, Is it growing food within your compound. We cannot be complacent anymore.
Serious people get serious results.

This is what the Bible says in Psalm 1:3
"And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper."

Also remember that God blesses the works of our hands. Use everything God has given you and DO SOMETHING, Be visionary and start small, learn from the processes, research and implement, don't just sit back.

Choose what kind of Tree you want to be by
1. Re-positioning yourself to a source that brings life (River)
2. Purpose to bear FRUIT in all you do
3. Avoid being the type withers because whatever doens't bring fruit is cut off
4. Prosper - you can prosper the right way

Evaluate Yourself With These Financial Terms

Some Evaluations Of Financial Terms
1. Cash Flow - Money you bring in
2. Expenses - Money you spend
3. Assets - Something that pays you
4. Liabilities - Something that costs you

When you look at this, it should get you thinking. Many times we complain and say we are not where we want to be because so and so did not help me or my relative did not do this for me, As much as we are meant to be helped in life there are certain principles that are universal and the onus is on someone to learn and apply them in their lives. There people who have grown up in alot of money and still squandered it because they do not have the discipline to manage and be good stewards.
Start evaluating yourself and ask what brings in money, list them down, start asking yourself what takes away money and make a spending plan to know where you money goes. 
Start asking yourself what pays - it could be an asset that brings in passive income, it could be a business, skill, side job etc but its lying dormant because you are still waiting for the right time and right opportunity, the right time and opportunity plays into the hands of those that are ready and prepared and have been doing something.

Start asking yourself what really costs me, you could be having 5 cars and yet you only use one, 4 fridges and yet one or two can work and that increases on your bill, 3 washing machines etc.
Do an EVALUATION and write down inline with those 4 things - it could be an eye opener to you.
Proverbs 21:20 says, "There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up."

You Can Prosper The Right Way

The Bible is clear about certain things like this
Proverbs 17:20One whose heart is corrupt does not prosper;one whose tongue is perverse falls into trouble.
We have heard what has been said before, as a man thinketh in his heart so is he. If your heart is full of corruption, what you see as prosperity is not what the bible defines, people have done crazy things in the name of prosperity but we forget we need to maintain a right and pure heart.
The power of life and death lies in the tongue, and a perverse tongue as well stipulated by the writer clearly leads to trouble, when you use your tongue to lie your way into getting riches the end result is un-ending trouble - some even lead to death and till you reverse, renounce and let God cleanse you of all filthiness. Business can be done in a clean way even though we have to go through the crooked systems in this world. You can always have the favor of God as you do business.

One of the most classic examples of prospering the right way is the testimony and life of Joseph.
You can read Genesis 37 for more information on this.

Quick Cash & Quick Things

One of the hardest things to tame is the desire to have something quick. In the name of wanting quick things, wrong decisions are made which can be detrimental. 
Talk about making quick money. Many have been duped by Networking/Pyramid schemes. Sometimes the persuasion seems so real that you can feel like a billionaire at that time, forgetting that things worked for and things worth valuing and fighting for.
There is this one thing called Betting that has taken up the minds of so many people be it corporate or the everyday person. Students have betted their school fees and ended up committing suicide. We need to learn the value of work and making the right investments. It won't always be true that you will get your odds right, the temptation is high after being successful the first time, you keep telling yourself you need ago at betting once more.
I have had of how people have sold property in the name of betting and this has brought lots of problems and curses.
There is a story line in the link below that should tell us to avoid being caught by the wave of betting, things that come quick also disappear quick
Proverbs 21:5 - The plans of the diligent lead surely to advantage, But everyone who is hasty comes surely to poverty.

Salvation Did Not Come Easy, It Came At A Price But It Was Freely Given


When I think about God's love for me and you, I see a vivid picture of Jesus Christ on the Cross. Have you ever thought about the pain he went through, the blood he shed for you, the crown of thorns that pierced him, the shame he bore.

if it wasn't for Christ, we would be no whereif it wasn't for him accepting the cup of suffering, we wouldn't be reconciled to our Makerif it wasn't for the beating, we wouldn't proclaim healing

Have you ever sat back and thought about your life, is it really pleasing to God, may be not or may it is, but everyday you get a chance to breath and see a new day. I am writing to remind you that God is watching over you, He has rescued you many times that you can't even count, He has held you when everyone walked out of your life, He has given you peace in the midst of the storms of life, that sickness should have killed you but he had mercy on you and gave you life. You put your trust in many things and yet they haven't been a covering for you like our God.

When you sit down to drink or eat or sing or laugh or cry or shout or boast or frame or diss or reject or depress or live in unforgiveness or step on someone, remember this God still loves you and he wouldn't have created you if he did not. Our life belongs to God but we many times give it out to many other things.

Romans 8:5 "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us"

Something I Once Loved - A message from A friend who wants many to see the Light and Be Transformed.

This message is as it is,

The question you should ask yourself at the end of the day is, what are your giving yourself too in the name of Love?, it should be a good thing to evaluate yourself and know your priorities and know your value, you shouldn't trade temporary moments for pleasure for lasting impact and consequences in your life, 

In this little Poetic, Simple and beautiful letter, a heart that is transformed wants you not to be tamed by darkness but to be enlightened by the Light. Read on and be blessed, you will get to know that there is a REWARD for everything, 
The bible says in 

Proverbs 14:14
The faithless will be fully repaid for their ways,    and the good rewarded for theirs.
You Can Get Repaid or Rewarded, Choose What your Outcome Will Be 

*Something I Once Loved...*

Something I loved once gave me a box full of darkness.

No victim of love goes un-rewarded because *LOVE* is *GENEROUS* and *HIGHLY APPRECIATIVE*. It always gives back, however, the reward depends on where  the love was invested. With love too, Terms and Conditions apply as the reward is always known to the victim right from the time of investment, but to this, less attention is paid.

From my love for smoke, I acquired lung cancer. Little did I know that this was Mr. Smoke saying "For your faithfulness towards me, I couldn't say Thankyou any better."

One day, I woke up to the bitter fact that my Liver had stopped filtering blood, detoxifying chemicals and metabolizing drugs because it had been over worked by my love and over consumption of alcohol.
My Heart too did not escape the package of boyfriends/girlfriends who succeeded in convincing me that sex was not only the exact but also, the correct definition of LOVE!!!
From my love for Sex, did I not yield my fleshy lustful desires? Or was not the gate opened for infatuation in my life? Oh, what an investment!!! And what a reward!!!
All of these, I loved and cherished then, but now, I'm a child of the day, and of the light. No longer do I travail the darkness and to the night, do I belong no more. 
1Thessalonians 5:4-10

I do not use the phrase, *"Something I loved once gave me a box full of darkness*. *It took me so long to understand that this too, was a gift,"* because it is well put. I use it because I've been at that place where you, that is reading this article and saying that "Someone must have told her my 
story" is at. I've paced through valleys of life before but God allowed that to happen to me, so that you would escape it.

So what is it that you love so dearly and what are you likely to reap from it? Are your investment plus reward worth Christ dying for? Think about it.

I can also END by reiterating, THINK ABOUT.

A Little About BAYC (Bugolobi Annual Youth Conference) 2005 and WHY AM SUPPORTING AND GOING TO BAYC 2016

It was many years back, I think 2005-2006. I had just joined Makerere University and I was very Zealous and hungry for God. I had come back to the saving knowledge of God back in 2004 as I entered my S.6 vacation. I was a young man who had seen and gone through a lot - lost my dad in 2001, despite being a bright child had personal challenges of drinking alcohol, smoking cigars & weed, night clubbing, bad company etc, I needed a push to grow more in God, I needed more fellowship with God, I needed to know my PURPOSE and I can say BAYC 2005 was my starting point. The Theme that year was "ADDICTED TO JESUS" -we added another slogan then and we said also "ALERGIC TO EVIL", It was just the right theme as I needed to be glued and rooted to the one and only Saviour. This BAYC was organised by the then Chairman Joshua Kakaire Kibedi and I must say it was one of my biggest turning Points. It prepared me for Campus that year - (I can confess that I went to Campus very focused - I graduated with a Second class upper degree in Bsc. Computer Science at the end of my University study and did lots of missions and conferences). 
That year (2005) I did not have the money to send me for the Youth Conference, I was sponsored by my dear Aunt Jolly Nyeko, the seed she sowed has played a very key role in my up-bringing and nurture in God. The coming year I still didn't have the money but the leaders then still allowed some of us to go by sponsoring us. At this point I would love thank my Mum Norah Acan who allowed me to go and participate, her prayers for me were indeed heard by God. I had a very great and important mindset change, from that of the world to that of the KINGDOM of God. 
There so many things I struggled with like Identity and I got answers at that conference, little did I know that, God was preparing me for greater things, greater leadership in many fronts. My past could no longer dictate my future because I found a profound renewal in CHRIST Jesus at the youth conference, At the conference, I was involved in many things that helped me grow, I was part of the CHOIR, though put most of my dancing talent into dance praise thanks to Omunyoro Damon K Wamara telling me and the guys that even though we couldn't sing well, we could dance. I became and I still am an ambassador of God and an agent of change, I am living a life of PURPOSE. Because of this conference, I have maintained a tight bond of friendship with some of my peers till today and we continue to impact lives in many ways, Malinga ArthurDaniel Malinga,Andrew Odoch UmahteteIsiagi Moses IshAlo Kay Baggalaaliwo Darmain Jr.Luwum DanielOmunyoro Damon K WamaraEadie KaeyWinnie Nyakake MalingaEdward Hire Yosia to mention but a few. 

You can build the right and purposeful friendships (have so many kenyan friends since its an international conference - the likes of Hadassah BrightRacheal Atieno,Richard Ojwang OnyangoEtemesi ElfasCarol MbuguaIsaiah Maghanga,Steve Owuor, etc) at an eternal event like BAYC. I would like to encourage all parents, friends and partners of the Youth Conference to Support it and sponsor as many youths as God enables them. One of my biggest Testimonies is that God groomed me to be one of the Leaders of this beloved YOUTH MINISTRY Called the DYF (Disciples Youth Fellowsheep)- 
The year 2011-2012, I served as the Prayer and Fellowship coordinator under the leadership of my brother and friend Malinga Arthur and God surely did some amazing things, am forever grateful for his leadership and then I took over the mantle and became DYF leader -I organised two dynamic conferences back in 2013 and 2014 with themes (Awake Oh Sleeper and After God's Heart) as God enabled - we continued to see him change and transform lives. 
I choose to be a partner to sow into the lives of those I can touch, someone enabled me go for the conference, so will I and so can I and so can You.. May God bless us as we support the BAYC 2016. I would also like to thank all the past leaders and the current leader for heeding the call of God, because what God enabled them do, can't be taken for granted.
There is a BAYC RUN coming up, purpose to be there.
There is a Partners DINNER soon coming up, will update us on that as well.
There fundraising drives coming up. The HAND THAT GIVES IS ALWAYS ON TOP - Check Out A Few Highlights Through The PICS below (BAYC Can change a life and propel it to greater heights as someone lives out what they are taught)

Why It Is Good To Testify

Plans have been made but not shared
Work has been done but no feedback
Lives have been changed but no fruit

The bible says that, they overcame by the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony. Have you ever attended a fellowship and its testimony time and people are asked to go up and share a testimony, I don't know why people fear to go and speak, may be they think their testimony is too small or that people won't consider it...

Our precious Lord gives us life, he breathes into us the breath of life, we see the light of day, we eat and drink, we walk or drive from place A to B and we come out un-harmed and we can't say thank you. Do we know what we walk through everyday to know what God has done to prevent sudden accidents like a plane falling from the SKY and hitting you, like the rocks coming from outer space and doing damage. Do we know how much EVIL surrounds us but the angels of God are always there camping around us to counter every pressure of evil and destroy it.

The Psalmist says, Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil.

Let us learn to come back and testify of the Lord's goodness, let us be like that one person who had leprosy and Jesus healed him and he chose to come back and say thank you, Jesus told him you are whole, 

"When we have a heart of gratitude, the Lord surely reigns wholeness upon us."

Elite Leadership 4:#LettersToMyFellowLeaders - Excerpts From What I Learnt As LeaderIt is an Honor to Serve (It is God's throne not mine)

Hi Family and beloved Team

You are blessed, You are precious - when I think about you guys and leadership, we have not just been servants to other people but we have been servants to one another, WE ARE A FAMILY from whom our name in Heaven is derived.

I have a heavy heart because of the passing of Dr Myles Munroe which i got to know this morning from Edward Hire, We have been shaped by the principles and revelations revealed to him by God in his time on earth, As you read through this remember his words that the greatest tragedy on earth is not death but a life without purpose, when you don't know your purpose Abuse is innevitable. Let what we learnt from him continue to be something we build on and share with generations to come, I can only then ask How prepared Are you? Are you fulfilling your purpose and potential? Are you serving God with diligence?.... Let's RAY FOR HIS SON Myles jr

To add on something a little bit more about commitment to prayer, It has been told that Martin Luther prayed more than he worked, in fact if his work was more, he took more time praying and that made his work even easier, John Wesley had to say this about prayer:-  
"Whether we think of; or speak to, God, whether we act or suffer for him, ALL IS PRAYER, when we have no other object than his love, and the desire of pleasing him.All that a Christian does, even in eating and sleeping, is prayer, when it is done in simplicity, according to the order of God, without either adding to or diminishing from it by his own choice. Prayer continues in the desire of the heart, though the understanding be employed on outward things."

However today I want to share on how it is an Honor to serve God and how it is a privilege.

This scripture spells out how God views me more so as a servant leader and his precious treasure.You Have Honor, You Have a Crown and All things are under your feet #Servant Leadership 

Psalm 8 vs 4 What is man that You are mindful of him,And the son of man that You visit him?For You have made him a little lower than the angels,[b]And You have crownedhim with glory and honor.You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;You have put all things under his feet,

This is what Queen Sheba told King Solomon (She Saw Something Through The Eyes Of God That Many Of Us Don't See)2 Chronicles 9:Blessed be the Lord your God, who delighted in you, setting you on His throne to be king for the Lord your God! Because your God has loved Israel, to establish them forever, therefore He made you king over them, to do justice and righteousness.”

It is always a DELIGHT to God when he chooses someone to serve on his throne, on his place of authority, a leader becomes accountable to God because you are a direct representation of him, everything he does starts and ends with you as the leader, that's why we have to be cautious not to abuse our place of leadership. Queen Sheba saw that and perhaps Solomon did not know and many leaders need to be reminded that the place of influence is God's, the throne he places us on is his.

Through out my time of leadership this statement that the place of leadership i am in is God's, it was and is to his delight that am leading because God has chosen and put me there, Indeed leadership comes from him. I have often said that i fear to lead without direction and many times I have been proven wrong before because some of the things that have been done in the eyes of those spiritually dead they don't understand but when you have had from God and are sure, time reveals that God has, was and is true.

So Leadership should be an honorable ambition, something that goes beyond self, goes beyond selfishness, your own self, leadership is to being Glory to God, serve people, bring forth solutions that will impact thousands of generations. To aspire to leadership is an honorable ambition - 1Timothy 3:1

Should you then seek great things for yourself? Seek them not. Jeremiah 45:5

With such an understanding, you will always know whatever good has been done is never you, you were his vessel to be used and there is no glory you take or share with God, all the glory is his.

Here are some few revelations from my life and things I have seen God work through me and how I desired to be of great Impact as God enabled me.

# I desired to be at the top to enforce change - a passion burning in me to see things done better and create an atmosphere of love for God and leadership through deep commitment to God and to my purpose at the time. - Arthur Kmo

#Quit talking about who doesn't appreciate you or love what you do, you are accountable to God first then to the people you serve - lamenting only brings grief, lay your mark by letting your work talk - Arthur Kmo

#A faithful leader is an obedient leader and this trait is much needed in the smallest of things God has called us to do - God tries every leader in the little of tasks even without their knowing take for example David with the sheep, Moses with the sheep - Arthur Kmo

#When you are given responsibilities they are preparing you for greater tasks, do it with your heart, it might be your hope in the near future and it will give people courage that leaders can be nurtured thus securing the future. - Arthur Kmo

With all this, We need to know where God has placed us is his, and we should know it is a privilege, it is an honorable thing.

Elite Leadership 3:#LettersToMyFellowLeaders - Excerpts From What I Learnt As LeaderLeading With Purpose (Everything you do will have meaning and it will bring joy and satisfaction)

Hello Beloved Team

Greetings with love from our Father in heaven, The King of Kings is seated at his right hand making intercessions for you and I. It is a beautiful thing to wake up every morning knowing you are in the strongest team and that there is an assurance of victory at every step that the Holy Spirit takes you and I through.

I love you guys and I keep praying for you, if there is any prayer I would like you to know is that God will KEEP YOU HEALTHY so that you can LEAD WITH PURPOSE everyday of your life. The Scriptures I am putting below are to point us to what am going to share on leading with purpose, there are many more but these few will suffice.

Acts 26:16 ESV 

But rise and stand upon your feet, for I have appeared to you for this purposeto appoint you as a servant and witness to the things in which you have seen me and to those in which I will appear to you.

In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will.

Micah 6:8 ESV 

He has told youO man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
As we climaxed last week, it ended on a high while Edward Hire talked about the "Attitude of Giving" and there were many profound statements were made in relation to the revelation given from God's word e.g It is not about how big the gift is but about the intent of the heart, my greatest desire is that everything we have been taught will be translated into the practical reality of things. Faith makes things real that's why it is important to act upon every word and determine to change - Remember that the way you live your life now will not be any different from when your older, so if you get the right principles and apply them now it will be something you will also teach your children. And the way you live your life now determines how it will affect your future, so be wise in acquiring wisdom, in adding knowledge, in being disciplined, in being able to make great decisions and in having courage to face every giant or mountain no matter what stands a head, this will enable you lead and influence many lives with a clear sense of purpose.

I happened to fall on a quote which made a lot of sense to me and this was in relation to purpose. # A Leader must lead with purpose in his heart - Success happens on purpose and never by accident - Jimmy Evans

I just love the way Jimmy Evans ended with this and he put it clearly success happens on PURPOSE and never by accident. When we look through the lives of many great leaders and may many men and women who changed lives, there is one word we will always say, "That was his/her purpose" - when you read about the likes of Martin Luther, Martin Luther King, Dr Myles Munroe, Winston Church Hill, Arch Bishop Janan Luwum, Joshua in the Bible, Moses in the Bible etc all these guys knew their purpose on earth and they breathed, lived and died for their purpose just like Jesus was mentioned, "For this cause I must endure the Cross".

I have been privileged through out my term to have never felt like giving up, why? because I have a purpose, until today my commitment has never wavered and by the grace of God I feel that my time is ending with great satisfaction more because with my good friends Malinga Arthur, Edward Hire, Isiagi Moses, Andrew Odoch, Daniel Malinga, Daniel Luwum, Eddie Kiyegga, Wamono Moses we had a a vision of disciplining young people and making them grow into leadership and affect their lives, it came with a cost because things weren't that easy as we had some mountains to climb, we had to sacrifice a lot and be there for the younger generation - Today we smile even more when we see the younger guys doing what we envisioned and this gives us more hope for the future not only for church but for family, society, business, governance etc, it is such a humbling experience. Surely SUCCESS HAPPENS ON PURPOSE, Joshua in Joshua 1:8 was told to meditate on the book of the law day and night and that he would be successful. It was at a point where Moses the Leader had died and through that crisis when many seemed to think there was no other leader, this guy had been under the wings of Moses' mentor-ship and God told him to arise to his purpose (Which was to lead the Israelite into the land of Canaan ), Had he sat back so many things wouldn't have been done, so my friends and I couldn't sit back and today when we see changes in DYF it has been a result of obeying the voice of God and acknowledging he had put purpose in our hearts to do as he had instructed building on what was already laid as the foundation for DYF.

Napoleon Hill once said that No Man/Woman (leader) can become a permanent success without taking others along with him

In this journey as I mentioned some names above, it has been a journey of moving with those who have believed in what God has called them to do, believed in each other's god given talents and abilities, appreciated each other's style of leadership and of doing things, and thank God that along the way, we kept on building and working with teams and there has been a great sense of success as one takes over the other, The team of from 2011-2014 and beyond as been a great family team, 2013-2014 has been successful because of what 2011-2012 team laid out as well and each year a different team does something that will last and affect many generations to come, so our foundation is important and because of a good foundation from 1992, the banner of DYF rides higher than ever because each year each team laid out something that we continue to build on. I am grateful to the leaders that came before us and did as well in their time, they led with purpose and we tapped into that. 

Dr Myles Munroe said that "The greatest tragedy on earth is not death but a life without purpose" and also "When purpose is not known abuse is inevitable". Let me add something too, when a leader leads without direction and purpose, it is totally a wasted time. 
Here are a few statements that i have written based on what I have learnt and applied as well and continue to apply.

#A Leader  is as good as he listens - Learn to Listen to those you serve with, they hear what you haven’t heard and they see what you haven’t seen, they have touched what you haven’t touched and smelt what you haven’t smelt, these can help propel the Service to one another and the greater good to greater heights. - James 1:19

#When you are given responsibilities they are preparing you for greater tasks, do it with your heart, it might be your hope in the near future and it will give people courage that leaders can be nurtured thus securing the future.

#You are not the Only Leader - there are others you Lead with and are accountable to

#A leader should build confidence even in the weakest member of the team - The best advise any other struggling leader can get is a vote of confidence. This is done by reminding them of the vision you all share and what you want to achieve and also reminding them of their roles and how important it is in achieving this, they lose more if they don’t do what they are called to do, so someone else takes the blessing when they don’t do their work because it’s be done by another person. In saying so they need to be encouraged and prayed for and loved since one of the virtues of the one who is strong is to help lift up the one who is weak. it is a privilege to serve and an honor to be chosen by God. 2 Chronicles 9:8

#Every Role has a Purpose and Avoid Playing your role out of position, it will cost the team” - statement made by Benjamin Tumukunde

#Can You Take Up The Role Without Being Told - It is an Indicator you can lead(Serve) others.
