What will it take

Lisa Bokani Motsu  is a Christian young girl aged 17 who
has found the love in writing as she believes that writing is the core of life. Lisa attends Francistown Senior Secondary School and she is currently doing form four.Just from a tender age writing has always been her passion. Her best
interest is going to church because in the house of God she feels his presence. She Apostolic Faith Mission Church of Portland Oregon she strives
to live above sin. She can testify to say that Jesus lives and He can save. Enjoy!

She hits her head so hard on the wall surrounded with a bellyful of troubles and the feelings of depression, pain, disappointments and anger engulfs her mind and eats her up like cancer in its final stage. Teared up into pieces with no one to rescue her because of the deep and bizarre violation,pressure and molestation she has endured. Robbed of her womanhood that she had wished so hard to preserve until the day she will utter her vows before the congregation and say, “I do” to the man who she will be solemnized with in a rightful mannered way. I was only a fool to believe that a signed piece of paper with over a thousand delegates to sign it would officially end sex slave work and in the ground it will buried and never resurrect again. As I isolate myself from the world, racked with pain and all day long, walking around filled with grief and terror.

Who Are You

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…….!

Of late I’ve taken to asking myself ‘what would Jesus do?’ I wish I could say it’s for some invocational reason or that I find myself at a newer level of spirituality but sadly it’s not. Au contraire I find myself living in the most spiritually trying and tiring times in what is one of the most oxymoronic countries in the world: Zimbabwe.

For the wages of sin is death

How can something utterly worthless, cost so very much?

If Jesus, who is life and the vine to which we are attached, allows for us to bare the fruits of love, joy, peace and so on, then by definition sin, which leads to death, is the process in which we poison these fruits. So essentially you are buying hate, depression, uncertainty and their likes and paying for it with your life.

“When are you getting married?” “You look so beautiful” “your boyfriend is one lucky guy”. These are words often heard by sisters and it seems to be the in thing these days. I get surprised at how people are perplexed when I tell them I do not have a boyfriend. Does it sound weird for me not to be in a relationship? I wonder. At times I actually feel I do not even need one. Listen, the truth is I am still learning my worth, still coming into terms with the fact that there is someone who loves me so dearly, someone that thought of me and  wanted to die for me.

Some time ago I saw a rather interesting post, actually very funny if I have to say. The whole post was basically a punt to tomboys and was titled “the problem of dating #tomboy”. Let me just first make a slight grammatical correction to the title which I believe would be much appreciated “the problem WITH dating a #tomboy” and I want to add on to say that the major problem with actually dating a tomboy is, there is none.

For those that are secure and sure of their identity in Christ they cannot fear titles or labels that follow that outward appearance.

Potiphar’s wife makes her cameo in the Bible in Genesis 39. To summarise the chapter, for those who don’t recognise this name, she was the one responsible for having Joseph (of technicolour dream coat fame) put in jail under false rape allegations. She is therefore usually represented as one of the vixens or femme fatales of the Bible. Villain though she may be viewed as, her life was significant and therefore contains content that we can learn from.
