Psalm 145:4, “One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts.”

One thing I love about the Bible is that it addresses life as a whole. One of the most discussed issues of every organization is LEADERSHIP! And the Bible has much to say on leadership. Every continent, country, business, project needs first class leaders. I am using the word first- class leaders as we have ascribed to the idea that leadership is position though it is NOT. We have read in books that it is influence, impact, position, e.t.c. Whereas knowledge, qualification, and experience are much needed ingredients of leadership, our society overlooks the most important ingredient: SERVING!

Why you need to be proactive in Prayer

Sussy Machoka from Kenya is a wife and a mother of one exuberant boy who lights up her every day. Jesus is her number one LOVE. She blogs about faith, food, parenting and health at Sussy Machoka and her Facebook page at Sussy Machoka on Facebook.

God spoke the world into being. Words have the power to create the life we want to live by creating mental images of that life. Action makes it possible to realize that vision. Praying is simply asking, making a request to God. Talking to God as you would a friend.

I am a product of prayer, mine and others. I believe you are too. That is why I strongly believe that after praying we should go on and live like we really placed our issues in the master’s hands.

Are we running from God or to Him? Heading away on the highway of life, or returning home? Or doing the back and forth route which seems to be fun? Sadly this world is full of ‘prodigal sons’, going their way for a while and then desperate to find their way home, but not knowing which way to go. They think of running away from home. Simply for reasons best known to themselves. Independence, self-confidence, autonomy you name it.

She currently works as a Research Assistant at the Ministry of Local Government in Gaborone. God has faithfully pursued her with His love for so many years. For Him, she waits. Enjoy!

The current struggle that we have today inside and outside the church is fitting in. It is apparent often God allows things to happen to us to rock our boats so that we come to our senses. You can call it a mighty divine interruption as we are on our way to distraction onto the rails of destiny. Then only do we get time to be touched by God. It reminds me of the former Saul of Tarsus who later became the famous epistle writer of all time Apostle Paul. The Bible records that while on his way to Tarsus on a very passionate mission to massacre Christians, the Lord appeared to him. I mean Jesus turned his horse upside down, log stalk and barrel, which left him struck blind for a period that lasted 3 days. The whole encounter changed Saul’s life completely and generationally continues to change our lives today. Hence the poem below…….!
