My God is Love!

I was having this interesting conversation cum argument with one of my colleagues about this whole ‘religion’ thing.

He thinks I believe too much in the existence of a God who is really my optimism. In other words, I’m optimistic so I believe in a loving, all knowing, all sufficient God who in his argument is really my optimism.

You gotta love this guy!- I know I do!

I meet too many people who agree with my set of beliefs that I find myself intrigued when I find someone that does not. And no, I don’t judge his decision to reject God. Neither do I make him seem unserious for not agreeing with what I believe.

This constant discussion time(which borders on teasing by the way) with him always leaves me thinking- which really works for me because I love, love, love to think.

For a person like me, I continually experience the utmost, inexplicable love, favour, mercy, even protection of God and I’ve come to appreciate how God looks out for me. I do not claim to understand Him for my mind is way too feeble to grasp a God so unfathomable. He is way beyond my faculties: mental or spiritual.

The person I am constantly becoming has nothing to do with me and everything to do with this God who I am constantly getting to know. My relationship with Him is what has transformed and continues to transform me on a daily.

I cannot claim that I have achieved perfection- far be it from me to sound so preposterous! I can however tell you that every day, I press towards the higher mark. Not in my strength for I am weak but in the strength of my God through whom I can do all things.

I look back at the person I was and if it wasn’t for the Lord, I could never be where and who I am today. I am extremely proud of who I am because of my relationship with this God for unlike anything- only love can change a person.

My God is love and being in Him I am daily being changed to be like Him: to reflect His likeness. To be to others what He is to me. For only when love itself changes you can you love others enough for them to be impacted by what/who it is that lives in you.

So, I love and continue to exist in this love for I know that this love will impact people in such powerful ways that I could never be able to! I consciously choose love!

He woke up to 'Breakfast with God'

Sunday afternoon, I decided to take a nap as I really felt off. I could not shake off a certain feeling that I just couldn't put my finger on. I felt it but I didn't know what this 'it' was. So I slept it off. You know how your mind says something is up but you just don't know what it is? This was me. I had been at Church earlier but even then, something was off but I just supposed I needed sleep.

Waking up after my short nap, I reached for my phone to check the time. I saw a WhatsApp text pop on my notifications at 5:40pm and all it said was Nevender 'teary faces'. I bolted up out of my bed and started texting frantically, asking what she meant.

'He's gone'

A million thoughts ran through my mind, I texted back anxiety coursing through my veins. I wasn't getting the information fast enough so I called Karen. And when she said what she said... I thought I was gonna run mad! There was no way! Nev always was a soldier... Nev had days when he d…

I thought I was God

'Everyone is entitled to their opinions and if you don't agree with what I say, take a walk!'

Quite rude huh?! But how many times have you been on the receiving end let alone the saying end of this statement? I have never said that you respond. Fair enough; how many times have you subconsciously rubbished people's opinions because they are different from yours? How many times have you mentally rolled your eyes at what someone said because it was different from your school of thought?

It's a Selah moment, right?

I came to my computer to write about one thing but ended up picking inspiration to write about another. One of my friends, Samuel Kamugisha shared an article he wrote 'The Power Of Why' and it got me thinking. His article tackles some of my latest reflections. Also, needless to say, the first thing I did was correct a grammatical mistake which he welcomed with open hands. Imagine if he had rubbished my contribution?

A lot of my friends remark that I s…

Why Is Your Gun Cocked?

'Why are you asking me that?'

'What concern of yours is it?'

'Why do you want to know my business?'

No, those are not random questions. I sat next to her as we 'spoke' though by now you realize I was doing more listening than speaking. She kept blasting these questions out about the information I was trying to extract from her. I sat still, maintained eye contact and just waited for her to come to the end of her gunfire.

'Should I speak?' I asked. 'Are you going to give me the opportunity to answer these questions or do I just continue to sit here and take your fire?'

'What fire? Me, I'm just asking you why you want to know.'

'Okay let me speak.' I said. Now turning to face her cutting her short with my eyes.

'Why do you feel the need to defend yourself? We have barely gotten into the conversation and your gun is cocked. You just went on a firing spree. Why do you feel the need to do that?'

She just continued h…
