One of the first things I was ever taught about effective Bible Study was to derive an adequate contextual grounding of any given text. The academic name for this practice is called ‘Exegesis’ and its core belief is that the essence of a text can best be understood by reading verses which precede and succeed your given selection. The proponents of this method of study argue strongly that the best way to get a balanced view of what a text is conveying is to read it in light of the occurrences, ideologies, dispensations and flow of the chapter(s) before and after it.

I think we can all attest to the fact that Followership is a phenomenon that is part of our everyday lives-‘#tweetthat’ .We all follow something or someone! In a deeper sense I think all of creation thrives on following something.

Our generation is at risk of failure when it comes to the process of followership. With technology making it easy for us to have a cause to follow-just a click of a button. We miss out on the fact that followership involves a process. A process which begins with a desire and is sustained by continuous learning. From the subject and about the subject. We follow those whom we deem successful and we want their success now. Yet true followership is not as easy as clicking a button. We have somehow narrowed followership down to dressing like the person we feel is worth following or maybe having an accent like theirs or even striving to have the car or gadget they have.

Looking out in the horizon

Staring rearwards, streams of thoughts,

Brainwaves flooding in like the amazon!

In the winter dates, from my focus;

As from my locus,

My past shone bright like the Belt of Orion

Reliving the times of yore, when the picture painted by life; was dull, was without crayon!

The osmosis of an inescapable period!

My making of a woman…

Days when life was not worth living

And earth, somewhat a prison!

Can you please journey with me… Continue reading

I am a product of my decisions; good or bad it all lies with me. I have done tonne of bad and a hundred fold of good in my growing up. I did then what I knew how to do but now that I know better, I do better. With every situation there is a lesson to learn and an experience to enjoy; the outcomes desired are determined by the seeds we sow. My life is a testimony of the good works of God, life, family and friends.

God has created us in such a way that we cannot be ultimately satisfied by anything except Him. Inside each one of us is a God-shaped vacuum that only He can fill. Continue reading
