Every day remains unique with unique challenges and opportunities

Jesus was certainly right when he admonished His passionate followers to bother less about tomorrow, as He reiterated that it has its own way of dealing with itself. It is interesting the ripple effect of every single action, even our decisions to remain insensitive. Perhaps that is why many people believe atheists belong to a religion in their own right.

I have come to believe that one can do everything, but not all things within a period of time. That is the more reason I believe in prioritizing events on the long and short term. It is interesting to note that as u lay the first few blocks well the other blocks  follow in an easy and beautiful pattern. This is what yields joy and fulfillment. Life truly does not depend on the abundance of things one possesses, but on the possession of the most important.

We surely must seek the kingdom of God and its righteousness, and it is beautiful to watch how all other things are added to it!

Love vs Tolearance. How far should the Christian tolerate evil?.

Society is plunging deep downhill! Any doubt about that? Certainly not.
To many folks, it is an expected phenomenon as the Bible explicitly conveys the fact that “the love of many shall wax cold.” and that wickedness shall abound. Any mathematician critically observing the trend of parameters like selfishness, lust, and their like will doubtlessly conclude that the world is heading towards a danger zone. The increasing rise of robbers, prostitutes, homosexuals, lesbians, corrupt leaders, etc will be rising still!!

That notwithstanding, it is amazing to come across countless souls who admit their shortcomings and express a genuine desire to trade their plight for a “better life”. This is a great expectation for any Christian. But then the approach remains a challenge to this day.
John Maxwell chirps time and again that “it is easier to catch more bees with honey than with vinegar”. That is certainly true! Encouragement and love for the sinners is a beautiful way to commence the process of restoring them to a better life. Many books, websites, and individuals are amazed at the countless souls that knock their doors for counseling (or just to be listened to sometimes)- they share their endless narrations and finally conclude with the popular “I am confused” phrase. The warm and comfort soon evolve to a stage which I consider even more dangerous – a stage where the individual “normalizes” his or her condition. This is to say he/she comes to believe whatever is happening is natural and not an exceptional case. These further degenerates into a mindset where morality is compromised and souls malnourished, thereby plunging souls further downhill.
There is no substitute for condemning explicitly what is considered wrong by God! Men should never feel comfortable in a church while they remain sinners. It is high time the “prosperity gospel” was substituted for the intended gospel, where men consider Christ their Lord and Saviour – a stage where they begin to depend absolutely on God, even in a fallen world. It is an era where “heaven never helps those who help themselves” but rather equips and strengthens those who walk by faith.
The command to love is clearly Christian. But to condone evil in the name of love is clearly unpardonable.
Ray Boltz came out last year to publicly announce his members in homosexual’s world and “convincingly” said that he is sure that’s how God made Him. Yeah. Men, even baby Christians as well as “Christians” with contradictory doctrines will strife to justify immorality. Revered men may fall in a world of disillusion. But that NEVER makes their conduct or utterances true. Post modernism will seem to bring some “truth”, but shall still miss the mark.
How far should a believer tolerate? How far?

So Precious!!

Along the beautiful, winding road to the East


The easiness of the heart is like none but falling manna


Sure! That smooth curve is so perfect a shape, just like banana

Look! Beyond the edge lies the panorama of a savannah

My body, soul, and spirit worship the Lord for this creation

Who but Jehovah has perfectly established this nation

And so much more; the skies, the rivers, and mighty oceans

Thank God for perfect revelation, else a painful evasion

Indeed the Mighty One is only righteous

His mighty deeds are so marvelous

He parades great works so virtuous

Even my beloved so … precious!

Inspired by wonderful thoughts flooding through my mind as journey from Accra to Koforidua one weekend. later dedicated to Adwoa Amuah

Morality on the decline…values being compromised!!!

The daily attitude of people nationwide is attaining an alarming level. Rich and cherished values have gradually been branded “colo”. To be described as “sexy” years back was tantamount to a prostitute. It is however a compliment in today’s world.
… Wake up!!

All in the name of Life !!!?

It is very normal to wake up on a very blessed day chasing the wind. Until your perspective is aligned to the originally intended plan by the creator, your effort are just about chasing the wind or perhaps vigrously fetching water with a big basket into a dam! Individuals on the surface of this planet are definitely not  here by accident. They have very important assignments critical for survival even for generations to come. As Rick Warren puts it, there may be irresponsible parents but never accidental babies, for the good Lord has excellent plans for such “unplanned” ones.

Discovering God’s purpose and working towards it is the wisest step in life….or what do you think?

A new perspective after a new experience !!

The whole of last week was virtually spent in Koforidua, the capital of the Eastern Region of the Republic of Ghana.

Shuffling UCC to CUC

The decision to switch my place of work from the relatively calm Cape Coast to the “hot capital”-Accra was a very challenging one. Endless consultations from one friend, to an elderly person, to a lecturer, to a brother, parents,and other people who mattered took place. My personal experience and long-term plans were closely considered.

My consultation with God, however, revealed the unexpected.  The confusion was fast-mounting! I was calmed down by wonderful assurances leading to a genuine peace within me.

I finally decided to spell UCC “CUC”… No regrets so far.
