Who is on your Boat?

Thinking of the storm that comes before a victory.

Like the one the disciples experienced as Jesus rested in the boat. How calm He was as the disciples panicked and saw death in the face. What if Jesus was not on that boat?

I need Jesus on my boat otherwise I wouldn’t know what to do with a boisterous storm on my own. Jesus may appear as if He is sleeping but He better be on my boat. Storms may rage but so long as I see Jesus in my boat, no fear, no retreat no surrender.

Peace Be still!!

Trauma Healing.

Took up a crash course on Trauma Healing by the Bible Society of Kenya this month April 2021. I did it for ‘them’. For others that I had in mind as I expected that I was okay and not in personalneed of the course. To ‘help them’.

Wow, surprise, surprise…..its turned out to be my course – For me, tailored with me in mind. For my healing. I have learnt so much in the few days I have been on it and most importantly, it has made me realise that some things are deeply rooted in the heart.
 I lost my sister 11 years ago and, yes, that came up today!! Am sure one can wonder how but it did! I was also taken aback but as sure as the sun rises,  that did resurface. Delayed grieving, false bridges and all…. No wonder Jeremiah said that the heart is deceitful above all things. Jeremiah 17:9. 

I truly am grateful to God for the opportunity and for the healing. He is truly faithful. All glory and honour to Him. I pray that others may find healing for all that they are going / have gone through.

How Great He is!

Genesis 1:1. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

This morning am in awe of how great and awesome the God I serve is! See….he created the heavens and the earth!!!! Even the heavens. He is bigger than all these. He is mighty and an awesome wonder.

Don’t know how but He did it, awesome God!
God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

He Chose me!

When I think of what I was when I was called, I am in awe. I wasn’t wise by human standards, I wasn’t influential. I was not of noble birth, but still God chose me.

Today 1 Cor 1:26 came alive in my life.


Fear!! Away from me.

Whoever said that fear is  paralyzing surely did know something. Fear of what people will say, fear of adding weight, fear of the future, fear of parenting, how are these little ones going to turn out? Have I done my best, is this the best decision, what if it all crumbles, can we survive another pandemic?
Many questions race through the mind on a normal day but their answers don’t seem to follow the same pace.
 I have embraced the decision to get rid of fear and anxiety in my life. I can’t keep providing refuge to the destructive tenants in my space.

I have not been given the spirit of fear but that of power, love and a sound mind. I am consciously making deliberate decisions to let God take control of my life. I believe that only He can handle the unseen. There is nothing too hard for Him. Therefore find rest my soul and take refuge in the shadow of the Almighty. He whose promises are yea and Amen.

 I invite you too, to lay your burdens at the cross and rest shall ye experience.
This too shall pass.

New Beginnings….

Isaiah 43:18“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.
43:19See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.
43:20The wild animals honor me, the jackals and the owls, because I provide water in the desert and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen,
43:21the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise
Beautiful Kenya sunset.

Take Refuge.

Proverbs 30:5 “Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.

Surrender your life, your marriage, your family your all to the Lord. Behold, He is doing a new thing this season. Can’t you perceive it? How long must we suffer and and live a life below what was fashioned for us? Cant we just surrender and see the glory of the Lord manifested?

A Preserved Life:

True true.

The Sacred Bowl

Knowing and understanding Gods word and his laws. What does God expect of us? We can only find out if we walk with Him closely. Reading and meditating upon his word. Living in obedience and reverence to God Almighty.

May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope, Lord, is in you. Psalm 25:21

Teach me, Lord, the way of your decrees that i may follow it to the end. Give me inderstanding,so that i may keep your laws and obey it with all my heart. Direct me in the path of your commands, for there i find delight. Turn my heart towards your statutes and not toward my selfish gain. Psalm 114:34-36

The Lord gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things, He knows what lies in the darkness, and light dwells in Him. Daniel 2:21

The Lord confides in those…

Holding onto the Promises

Blossoming beyond expectations.

Gen 39:20-23.
Amazing how Joseph landed in jail with favour. The LORD was with him and showed him kindness and favour in the eyes of the prison warden.

The LORD’s love is unequalled. That Joseph was made in-charge of all those held in prison means that he did the duties of the warden himself yet in the eyes of the people, he was just a prisoner like the rest. To God he was different, he was a truly noble servant, a vessel of honour. The prison warden saw this in Joseph.

Interestingly the warden had rest as it is written that he paid no attention to anything under Joseph’s care, because the LORD was with Joseph and gave him success in whatever he did. Joseph did not lie in self pity, anger or murmuring, he blossomed and worked diligently and excellently. He did the warden’s job perfectly well that the warden did not have to supervise him further.

It’s a true challenge to us. Right from the holiness in Joseph’s life that he did not even explain to the master what transpired to exonerate himself; to the diligence of serving the warden amidst that pain.

May the LORD give us success wherever we are and even in our marriages. Joseph could not defile himself nor his master’s bed. He respected the marriage bed of his master and his body as the temple of God. And the bible says that the LORD gave him success. God was pleased. He was with him all the way.

May we conduct our lives in ways that are pleasing to our heavenly Father.
