Devotional Nuggets – #93

 

It’s a glowing Saturday morning here in my little abode. I’ve just returned from the gym and the only thing on my mind as I walked back home was to remind us again that He is always there for us. I hope I’d reiterate the truth to us, in case we’ve lost some hope that He makes a way, where there seems to be no way. Continue reading

The Sunday Routine!

It’s another signal that the day has come

As the metal bell continues to reverberate

Like the voice of a thousand cries

Mingled with the melodic clanging

That echoed all through the countryside

Nearby, are the hurried steps of the weekly enthusiasts?

Clad in the finest of their Sunday apparels

The Reverend sat in the Vestry

With his hands clamped on his knees

Awaiting the tick of time for the benediction

He looked regal in his long robe

***************

It’s 10 0’clock and the cathedral is filled to the brim

The backside of the gigantic edifice parades heads of late-comers

Standing whispering subtle inaudible expressions

On the front row are empty seats

But no one dare rest their butts on these sacred spaces

Clearly inscribed on them were the revered words – Reserved.

For the knights and the affluent who fuel the gospel

***************

Ahhhh, Nkiru sat between the two aged women

In her usual demeanour of a saintly child

She raised her head skyward

And with hands clasped together, she begins to whisper

Oh Lord she begins

Oh Lord, teach me your words

Teach me in kindness

Teach me in love

Oh Lord, help us to learn your ways

Ignite the power of love among your People

Give us the divine impulse to show your love

So that the world will dine less in wickedness

So that your children will shed their evilness

And sheath the sword of hatred and violence

Oh Lord, give us a new heart of friendship

Of humbleness and compassion and of gratitude

To know that we are your children

Born to show love to one another

Born to sow the seeds of affability

And of good deeds

Oh Lord, protect our world

Protect our families

And make us prosper in your righteousness

Oh Lord, answer our prayers

And bless us beyond our words

Amen.

Peace and Love!

It’s another great day that the Lord has made and I rejoice to be among the living. Only those people with breath can sing, can shout, can think, can dance, and can praise the Lord.

Today is September 2, and I just want to say thank you, Jesus, for another month when I add another year to my age. Life hasn’t been an easy terrain but you have been steadfast in your faithfulness.  Continue reading

Even though change is constant and one of the regular experiences of any human, it is a fact that no major change is easy. Some changes are hard and confusing. While some are sweet and easy.  But one thing is certain in any type of changes, we are faced with the problem of adaptation to the new transition.  Continue reading
