Date a girl who prays

I started the year by watching the movie ‘War room’ with some good friends from my bible study [Shout out #TeamWarRoom!] I know it was a couple of months later than most Nairobians, but it happened to be God’s perfect timing as it intuitively set the pace for what was to be the focal point for 2016-my prayer life.

As the ‘’season of love’’ approaches, I was musing over what prayer and Valentine’s Day have in common and I was inspired by this old post that I had read a couple of years back to jot this down:

#2016 Great Expectations

"Now, I return to this young fellow. And the communication I have got to make is, that he has great expectations."

- Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

 

Pip is the protagonist in Charles Dickens classic novel Great Expectations. The story goes that young orphaned Pip dreams of becoming a proper English gentleman to win the heart of Estella-his romantic interest but the task is almost an impossibility owing to his very humble background.

Temptation

Her strength caught him off-guard when she grabbed his left arm and pulled him towards herself. He was now just inches away from her and the scent from her perfume stung his eyes; he had never been this close to her before despite the fact that she had recently been making outrageous demands of him. His throat went wild with fire and his heart beat faster than the Egyptian ceremonial drums, he could not speak.

The Substance of things hoped for

Nothing says New Year like a list of ten or so resolutions for the coming twelve months. Or how is it the Christians put it? Those things that you're 'trusting' God for. Your big dreams for the year, those goals that you'd like to have accomplished...do you have yours? All set, listed and maybe even crossed off some already . Or you're like me, had your list last year which amounted to naught, so you gave up on the whole idea. Yes, that was me in December, holding my breath so tight 'believing' that something could still happen to turn things around to my favor. Needless to say by 25th December I had resigned myself to the obvious...it wasn't going to happen in 2014. As I prayed, asking God what the deal was, the answer came to me in a very simple way; just a sentence from God.

Sons of God

1 John 3:1a Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God:

I have been mulling over this scripture for a couple of months now, actually much longer to be quite honest. I don’t know if you are like me, but once in a while i read some scriptures that really take a while to sink in because they are sooo ‘deep’ and ‘powerful’.

What’s up with that by the way? What is it that makes one word ‘powerful’ and another not? That phrase irkes me alot these days.. any way...I digress.

I AM

Nathanael: a true Israelite. That’s what Yeshua had called him, a man without an ounce of deception. These were the first words that he had heard from this man that had come to mean so much to him. He still remembered that hot afternoon just as if it was yesterday, his friend Philip had come running looking for him claiming to have found the Messiah. At first he didn’t believe him, he thought it was one of those tricks they had played on each other before. But when he met the Rabbi that afternoon, he knew He was different. He had known then that Yeshua was the Son of God or the son of a god at the very least; and he had believed him and not just because Yeshua had seen him in a vision sitting under the tree where he had been shading from the scorching sun. He looked into Yeshua’s eyes that afternoon and he knew, he just knew. He had never been able to explain it beyond that.

Did not our hearts burn?

Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the scriptures? Luke 24:32

Spoken by one of the two disciples on the way to Emmaus, the two had had an encounter with Jesus himself right after the resurrection. Jesus walked with them on the road and showed them how everything written in the Laws of Moses, the prophets and the psalms were about him. This must have been an exposition message and a half; to be able to understand how Jesus’ birth, life, death and resurrection were a fulfillment of the Old Testament teachings. You almost wish that they would have recorded in writing this conversation that caused their hearts to burn.

Noah the movie: Three truths!

When I saw the trailer I was instantly hooked, I started counting down to the Kenya premier. It wasn’t long before the internet was flooded with  everything that was wrong with it; from its flawed theology to the outright lack of creativity. In fact one blogger simply said.

‘’ Don’t bother watching it, it’s a complete waste of money!’’

I have a testimony!

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

I AIN'T AFRAID OF NO GHOST

I just read about this book God’s Ghost busters that proves to be a rather fascinating read. One of the book reviewers had this to say;

This book gives answers to the questions many Christians may have about vampires, ghosts, aliens, werewolves and creatures of the night. These subjects are examined from a biblical standpoint. It helps the reader to understand that there are forces at work in the world that are just beyond our ability to comprehend and at times to understand. We are engaged in the war of light verses darkness. The book also makes you wonder about things that go "bump in the night". And another said:

LIFE’S QUESTIONS, GOD’S ANSWERS

Do you have a question about God, Jesus, the Bible, or theology? Do you have any doubts about the Christian faith or the Bible? Do you need help understanding a Bible verse or passage? Are there any spiritual issues in your life for which you need advice or counsel?
