in waiting

“I do not want to wait any longer.”

Have you thought this during a challenging season?

We have all experienced some form of ‘waiting’ in our lives. It can riddle our minds with anxiety, worry, and doubt.

To wait involves a delay to action until something occurs. To be patient involves accepting a delay without becoming angry.

I hear countless stories from family, friends, and strangers about the uncertainty in this current ‘waiting’ season. There is confusion, frustration, anger, pain, and strife. We are longing for consistency with school challenges, daycare options, job security, health concerns; the list goes on.

This is a temporary season of change. Though it may feel it is lasting a long time, remember we are being molded, sharpened, and etched into a new creation. A plant only flourishes after it is first rooted in the ground. So it is that we are seeds of light rooted in the foundation of Jesus Christ. So, do not be discouraged when we grow during sufferings because God is at work for our good and His glory.

Romans 8:18 tells us, “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us” (ESV).

“Time spent in the in-between, a transition from one thing to the next, can often be frustrating, but it is NEVER time that is wasted when it is WAITING, as an act of OBEDIENCE.”

We shall look forward to our future glory that is to come because when Christ returns, we will step into our Heaven-given inheritance. Let us focus beyond the frustrations of this season for God surpasses any struggles we face. God provides splendid liberty and justice for all. Have firm hope in the Holy Spirit who intercedes on our behalf to the Father. For the Spirit shares in our burdens. You are not alone.

Wherever God has you in this season, you are to bloom where you are planted.

I pray you would allow His restorative love to strengthen your heart. Be encouraged that God has a perfect plan for your life. Remain patient, for the best is yet to come.

Marching on

Friends! Family! Kingdom partners!

Here’s an update on the past few weeks’ events in February, spilling into March!

Marching on
I saw this post online earlier, and OH! What a privilege it is to be a labourer in this harvest!

Thank you for labouring with me in the Nations so that every man from every tribe and every tongue may hear the Good News of the Gospel!

the Door

There is rest and there is peace
Inside the shade of Your garden

Jesus, you’re the only one for me
there’s no way I’m leaving you
Your the love the way the life the truth
You’re our the door I’m walking through

Your love is the reason that I am here
and I’m running to you cause your all I need

not abandoned

I’m praying for the Nations of Africa today.
Northern Africa and the Middle East has been at the center of persecution for many years, and yet, many new believers turn to Christ as Lord and Saviour.

one of the largest threats to the Western Church is lukewarm faith. 
persecution is one of the best things that can happen to a family of believers.

the harvest is plenty, but the labourers are few.

perhaps this is the time for which you’ve been called.

For you have been granted [the privilege] for Christ’s sake not only to believe in (adhere to, rely on, and trust in) Him, but also to suffer in His behalf.

Philippians 1:29

Eli! Eli!

I had just woken up. It was barely light yet.

I remember very clearly having dreamt about Elijah, and Eli serving in the Temple, telling Samuel to go back to bed because it was not he who had called to him.

It had been exactly 1 day since I got my car.

You might not pray about naming your car, and neither did I at first. But, I knew God had spoken to me, so I named my car Eli.

At first, of course, I was sceptical — this wasn’t how I had hoped or imagined it would turn out. My car-situation, I mean.

But I was content, and deeply thankful (as I still am!), knowing that God’s provision is not lacking.

When reading through the Scriptures, ELOHIM and EL ELYON are some of the first Names fo God we come across. The Most High is Creator and Sustainer. He isn’t distant, but PERSONAL, and He calls us into relationship with Him. We were created to live face-to-face in His presence.

As I spent time in prayer that morning, reading through Scripture and studying the meaning of His’ Name, I was reminded that the Most High knows exactly what we need for each season we’re in, whether it’s the desert or the Promised Land, and He provides in abundance — even if that provision looks different from what we expected it to be.

The more I look back over the last couple of years, there more aware I become of the careful ways in which my life was conducted by the Master!

It’s my pleasure to be part of that harmony, even when I can’t see the bigger picture.

As worshippers, our goal is not simply to praise God, but to change the spiritual atmosphere.

We can only do this, when we hear and respond to His call.

This post isn’t about a car, or prophetic dreams as much as it is about God’s faithfulness.

My prayer for you, dear friend, is that you’ll have the courage to respond to his call so that you might be drawn deeper into relationship with Him.

When He calls you into the wilderness, may you have such faith in His’ faithfulness that you’ll leave the comfort of the familiar behind, knowing that God is able to provide, but above all, knowing that he who started the good work within you will bring it to completion.
