Seek God-Seek Wisdom

Do you believe in the statement, “life is a battle ?” Or are you struggling with an aspect of your life. Worst yet, are you struggling in life.  My struggle may be different from yours, your struggle is different from hers and his. But one thing is sure, we all have our battles.

Some battles are as minimal as getting a bus on time for work or as problematic as substance abuse, financial difficulty or my personal favourite loneliness or heartbreak :).

What if I told you, you’re fighting the battle in a wrong way. What if I told you the age old secret to winning all battles. Better yet, winning the war we have come to call life. This age old secret is non other than wisdom.

I’m sure you’re frowning and shouting at the top of your lungs saying all the sarcastic things that come to mind :). Well the book of proverbs 8- and yes it’s a Bible thing, speaks of hearing the call of wisdom. Wisdom in this context is described as a person willing to aid and help you.

How might I discover this wisdom you may ask, well it’s simple-spend time with the man who gives wisdom- God. Most of us walk around saying we’re Christians, yet we don’t remember the last time we went to church. Yeah I know your response, I don’t need to go to church to be a Christian.  But do you need to go to work to be called an employee of a company?

The church thing is not even as bad as the fact that we do not spend time with God.  How can you gain wisdom, if you’re not in touch with the source of wisdom? How can you know God, if you’re not in touch with God?

You want the rules to the battle of life, you want the expect strategist in your corner. Then spend time with him. I can promise you, life won’t be a walk in the park but you are guaranteed of victories in all your battles.

This may sound like religious talk. But trust me God does not want a religion, he wants a relationship with you. Religion is just man’s way of finding God. But all God is asking is- “trust me, spend time with me, get to know me and I shall give you rest.”

If you believe what you’re reading applies to your life, as in you’ve lost touch with God, say a prayer of faith, “Lord Jesus, I’m sorry for doing things on my own, I surrender my will to you, guide me and help me become the person I was supposed to be.”

If you just prayed this prayer with faith, trust me, he has taken control. The next step is spend time with God each day. It does not need to be an elaborate two hour session :). It just needs to be time you’ve set apart to study God’s word (Bible) and pray. Also find a Bible believing church and start attending and trusting. In little to no time, you shall be victorious in all your battles.




Season Greatings, X-Mass

The Mass Of Christ

Every year we wish our friends and loved one’s “Merry Christmas” but do we know what Christmas actually means? Christmas means Christ’s Mass;  where we celebrate the birth of Christ,
a man whose sole purpose was to die for our sins. Funny enough, even people who are not Christians celebrate the Mass of Christ. 
So what I ask is, “Do we celebrate the ‘Mass of Christ’ or like the masses  do we celebrate the ‘holiday season’ ”?  
“Why will  someone be born with a destiny such as death for the sake of others?”  Yet He readily embraced it. The answer I believe is LOVE ;  A word which has lost it’s meaning over the years. 
As Christians we must emulate this kind of love, a selfless love, a love which is pure and asks for nothing in return and a love which is eternal.
So in order to celebrate the Mass of Christ and not just a holiday, let us show love to all and not just friends and family.

Merry X’Mas and a Happy New Year.

In the 21st century varied forms of technologies have made our lives easier;communication between 
parties who are thousands of miles apart have become but a click away, in a few seconds a single image on the Internet could be viewed by thousands of people all over the world.  But what I do find most interesting is the way that “Christians” tend to use these channels to propagate the “Gospel”.
You may have come across a strange message on the Internet which always ends with “share this if you love God”  or “share this with eight people and you will be blessed”; this often makes me wonder if they are in fact sharing the Gospel or just threatening people to forward messages to each other. 
Some of these range from inspiring  messages to messages  which are absurd, not factual and definitely not possible. An example of such messages circulate after people finish SHS. They get messages
that tell them to send the received message to eight people and they will  get 8 A’s. 
Often at times this makes me recall (Matthew 23 : 4) “They tie up heavy loads and put them on men’s shoulders,but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.” .Dear friends in the Lord,I am not saying it is a bad thing to propagate the Gospel via these platforms,
I’m only cautioning us against spreading fear and making people send messages they may not even 
care about.  
Why not send a touching message of love and peace, that will inspire and motivate people to love 
God and serve God. In Paul’s letter to  the Philippians  he encouraged them to walk in the Gospel of Christ. In Chapter 4 : 23  he wrote,“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen”. 
This encouraged them to stand fast in the Lord. 

Finally I would like  to leave you with this message;(John 3:34) “for the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God,for God gives the spirit without limit.”

My Purpose — A letter to University Students at the start of Sem.

I remember seeing Lord Kenya now Pastor Lord Kenya in my first year(2009) singing some of his greatest hits to the admiration of students during the ATL hall-week. Some of those songs were “Chick yi oy3 bu3, K-to-the-E-N-Y, etc” Fast forward a couple of years and I’m in my final year(2013) and a changed Lord Kenya sings “Jesus oy3 bu3” and again the crowd look on full of admiration.
This makes me ask, “Was he meant to use his  incredible performance skills to wow people or to woo people to the house of God?” Often a times we go through the struggles of life; striving to succeed and by grace we most often do but the question is are we succeeding for God or are  we striving for our own success. A glaring example is Lord Kenya by all means he was a success but from his own words he did not consider himself successful.
I’m sure before this semester begun we all came to Campus quite excited:
“Finally am of to the university” says the first year
“I’m no longer a fresher” says the second year
“A step closer to final year says the third year”
“One more lap says the finalist”
But have you asked yourself what does God want for me this academic year or what  are his plans concerning my life. Do not get me wrong, it’s important to strive for success and only human to be happy when you succeed  but all I’m saying is let’s strive  for success in line with the will of God.
And to the finalist, I’m sure most of you may have asked ,“After school what next?” But I believe when you know the will of God for your life; well I’m not saying life will  be easy but Life will be worth living.

Life Coach

Have you ever asked when the world will end, think about it for a minute for over 2000 years the message of repentance has been preached. If you were born into a Christian family then surely you might have heard several times that Jesus is coming.
“When is he coming?” we ask; I’m sure the thought has crossed your mind once and my answer to you is simple; Mathew 24:43 “But understand this: if the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into.”
Day in day out the world ends for someone somewhere.  Some people go to sleep and never wake up others wake up and yet never go back to sleep.  The question we should all ask ourselves is; do we know when the world would end for us. I’m not writing to scare you just to remind you that you know not the time nor place.
A good friend once told me that Christianity was like a boxing match and until the match ends you have to keep fighting but now that I think of it, I think it’s like a wrestling match where even after the match ends your opponent might attack you outside the ring. 

For this reason I want YOU to stand fast in the Lord especially when things are difficult, just as I used wrestling/boxing as a metaphor know that God (your coach) is always in your corner. So do spend a minute of your time to repent of your sins and ask the good Lord to be your Life Coach.  

A letter to my my past love

To all the girls that I hurt,
from the depth of my heart I’m sorry.
To all the girls that hurt me; I want to say thank you.
Cos had you not messed with me the way you did, I’ll not be who I am today.
Paranoid , Cold and  Heartless , 🙂
But that said, I’m not saying what we had wasn’t special.
I’m saying what we had was perfect while it lasted.
Be it infatuation, lust, unrequited love or I dare say Love!
Know that I relish what we had, and I cherish every moment we spent .
For through the laughter, pain and tears you’ve moulded the perfect man.
Not the perfect man in your sight but the perfect man in hers.
Although she had to carry all the baggage you left with me, she also benefits from the perfect man you’ve moulded.
So to all my ex’s, could have been’s, should have been’s and to you whom I can’t classify.
I thank you.
Maybe in another life time, another dimension or a better me, things could have worked out.
But Know that I loved you once and I still love you – not  as a lover but as a friend.
I’ve found a way to move on, so please do the same.

PS: SHE! appreciates the better man you’ve moulded and she keeps telling me, “Things never make sense until that right person comes along and it all begins to make sense.
I love You! My True Love!


Unrequited Love

For so many years all she could see in me was the love of her life,
and all I could see was that little girl I first saw walking down the street.
I could hold her in my arms as she sobbed and cried the night away.
She told me all her fears as tears rolled down her face.

But alas she was so innocent and cute,
Not the kind of innocence a man would like to steal.
It was the kind you would like to protect.
The kind , kind of innocence.
Not the naughty kind that you would lust after,
But the kind you would like to protect.
Not protect for you, but for her.

Oh that girl loved me soo, but to me she was no more than a child,
Was it her cute face that did it?
Or her enchanting smile?
I may never know why I cherished and loved her so.
Not the love a guy felt for a girl but the love a brother felt for a sister.

Soon this young girl blossomed into a flower,
A flower all my friends wanted to pluck,
But alas all I saw was her innocent and beautiful soul.
A soul I was not ready to darken with my indiscretion.
A soul everyone else wanted to destroy for the sheer fun of it.

Soon I became the laughing stalk amongst my friends,
How frail and weak I was,
How feminine I always will be, and how much I would never amount to nothing.
Often I asked myself, is it wrong for a man to love a girl without intimacy,
Is it wrong for a man to be pure of heart,
Is it wrong for a man to love, truly love?
Am I a fool to desire a woman who satisfies every aching moment of my life,
rather than a woman who satisfies me for just a night?

Sadly I loved her, just as I love my sister,
My cute little baby girl.
But as destiny would have it she was about to leave the country.
As she lay in my bed, she said, “I want you to ravage me.”.
I laughed harder than I ever have, “Ravage you?”, I asked, “which movie did you get that from?”
I could tell from the look in her eyes that she was hurt, not hurt because I laughed, but hurt because she could tell I did not want her.
Our last night was all about me convincing her how I cared and loved her but I could not be with her.
As she cried, stormed out my door, the last thing she said to me before storming was, “One day you will know you always wanted me, and you are just not man enough to be with me. One day you will know I’m better than all the girls you keep chasing,who keep hurting you. One day you will love me like you’ve never loved and on that day you will never find me, nor have me. That day you will weep knowing you lost me this night knowing my innocence as you put it was stolen by an Ass!”
Till this day these words haunt me.
Till this day I’ve not seen nor heard from her….


For the love of Ruth

Be it society or be it our nature a man is made to seem like an emotionless  being. Then again it could just be the African man or better yet the Ghanaian man. Right from childhood we are told that crying makes us look weak and we often hear the phrase “Men don’t cry”.
Although I’ve hardly seen a man cry over emotional issues, most guys I know break down into lifeless beings. They may not shed a tear but one can still feel their pain and the few who confide in me I know they are really hurting.
This article was inspired by “The 5 Types of Guys Girls Fall in Love With ” and this made me ask myself of which of these guys am I or perhaps at different  points in time for different girls I’ve played a different role.
To most of these girls I might have just been a phase or one of the numerous five and as they tell their stories to friends and family, I may be a knight in shinning amour or a  troll under a bridge. But as we all know there are two sides to every story, my side may sound a bit different.
Although I do not know the five types of girls a guy may date in his life time I do know most guys I know who are honest to themselves and to me have been hurt at some point and at some point they just did not know what to say or do to get the girl.
What makes this even worst is the fact that even “christian men” and “christian women” are all influenced by the media and our idea of a relationship is skewed by Hollywood fantasies of two people meeting for the first time and falling in love for eternity…..I often laugh when I think of this, although I must admit I’m not a relationship expert. I believe the bible which is our manual as Christians has a lot of good relationship advice.
Now let’s take the story of Ruth, in this story Naomi asked Ruth and Orpah to return to their people now Orpah did go but Ruth stayed. In the decision these two women took we see the two kinds of people in our lives those who stay and those who leave likewise in the lives of others we influence we either stay or we leave.
Please do not get me wrong often at times those who leave have very good reasons for leaving and more often than not whilst they stay they enrich our lives, for all we know Orpah might have helped in carrying their luggage or might have been good company during their travels but yet she had to go so I believe those who leave us have served their purpose and we should learn to let go of all the pain we might be feeling.
But in the end we all just want to be loved, but you can never love if;
1. You do not love yourself enough—–for my female friends do not let him take advantage of you in the name of love and for my male friends if you do love yourself you will not need reassurance by lying in the  arms of a woman who excited nothing else but your loins.
2. Love God—————There is not much emphasis I can lay on this, and I may not have enough words to explain it but what I can say is God is LOVE and if you love him, it means you love LOVE.
3. Finally in the journey of finding love we make a lot of mistakes which I think it’s OK, just don’t repeat them 🙂  and know that life itself is a treacherous journey that can only be traveled with God as a companion and when you do go looking for love pray for the love, that is pure and true that even in death this love will honor  your home.
Pray for the love of Ruth.


My first steps

Like a feeble baby who has just learnt to walk, I woke up this morning feeling strong inside and excited about the day. And just as a baby as soon as I took a few steps I fell, flat on my face. In that instance I knew not what to do, Do I cry, I asked myself or do I call out for help.

But just as a baby I realized there was no one to call out to. No one to share my fears with, no one to share my worries with, and even if there was they don’t understand baby talk hence they will not understand me and all they will say is sorry,sorry, sorry.I need not your pity I just need a listening ear.

Then it finally hit me just like a new born baby, whose mother knows what to say to calm the baby down and exactly what to do to make him feel better, God knows exactly what to say and what to do.
Normally it is the baby that does not speak intelligently but not the mother.

I’m rather of the reservation that although I feel ashamed of myself for not being able to walk successfully I’m sure God like a mother just smiled and said, “He will get it right next time”
I know I’m feeble so I stumble and fall but I know like a mother his always there to pick me up.

A mother’s sorry are not signs of pity but signs of support. God I thank you for being there and I thank you for letting me fall so I can learn to walk.

NB// (Det. 5 vrs 16)  If I call God Father, then I must honor him at all times.


The Mystique

Her mysterious ability gives her the chance to morph into anyone,
One minute she’ s fair, the next she’s not,
In her fair state she dispenses justice,
And in her unfair state I’m willing to forgive her.
In her true nature most will consider her grotesque
But if you look beyond her looks you see loyalty,
If you look further you see a woman who is honest to you,
She morph’s her nature to suit her environment .
Who is this woman I talk of,
Who is woman I describe,
Her name is Mystique
The one woman most men desire
Cos she can become any woman you desire.
Look into her eyes one more time
and you will realize that she is
every woman you’ve ever wanted and more.
