Where Is Your Name?

Where Is Your Name?

Luke 10:20 KJV “Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.” People are happy for various reasons, mostly for personal successes and triumphs. Others rejoice because of good health; for having good reputation and honor within their community; respect and tribute given are jealously guarded. Many also feel that all that matters is having incomparable wealth. Some take pride in popularity and status. There are others…

Novel : Nysa’s Mirror (Part 18)

I can never tell anyone else everything that Mrs. Potts tells me, even though she doesn’t say anything either way whether I can or can’t. Just because she talks freely with me doesn’t mean that I can do so with her stories. By the time she seems to have finished talking, I have gained a new perspective and respect for her in a way I have never felt for anyone else before, male or female, young or old. Her life truly is extraordinary….

My Strength

My Strength

Psalm 31:3-4 KJV “For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name’s sake lead me, and guide me. [4] Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for thou art my strength.” Even as a mature, long-time Christian, there are times when you feel tired physically, emotionally and spiritually. The more you do and the longer you go on, the more you see, hear and experienced. Sometimes, things hit a little too…

Novel : Nysa’s Mirror (Part 17)

Oh, Mrs Potts! I plan on leaving straight away, but the sight of her sitting there all alone and silent make me pause. I suppose I could stay a bit. It is rude to just leave, anyway, even if she says nothing either way. I make my way over to her and after the briefest of pause, sit on the other end of the sofa. Silence. I hope things won’t get too awkward. I open my mouth to say something, then close it…

Love Wins!

Love Wins!

How does Love wins? At Sunday School during Easter Sunday, the teacher taught about the meaning and importance of the Holy Weekend to all Christians. Towards the end, the teacher asked, “So can someone tell me in two words about what happened on Calvary that day, thousands of years ago?” A brief silence ensued, then a clear young voice confidently cried out, “LOVE WINS!” The teacher paused, then replied, “Indeed.” Romans 5:8 KJV “But God commendeth his love toward us,…

Novel : Nysa’s Mirror (Part 16)

And it appears that she is also deaf, or at least partially deaf. I have a grandmother, you see, and she is very, very old, God bless her soul. She is also partially deaf and blind, and it shames me to think that I have failed to make the connection between her condition and Mrs. Potts’. Except for the fact that Mrs. Potts is still mobile, all the signs are there. Well, color me double-shocked. I probably don’t have any right to…

Effectual Fervent Prayer

Effectual Fervent Prayer

James 5:16b KJV “…The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” A very important question to ask is, what is an effectual fervent prayer? During Sunday School, the little girl was asked by her teacher to give a prayer of thanks and blessing for snacks the children would eat. It would be her first time ever to pray in front of others, her peers regardless. The little girl was understandably very shy and hesitant. But she was also…

THE STORY REVEALED “Oh, errr, good afternoon, Mrs. Potts. Umm,  how  are you today?” I stammer. Good heavens, it pains me just to watch her try to climb up the steps to her floor. Her progress, if you can call it that, is encumbered by the big grocery bag she is holding close to her side with her right arm, her ever-present huge handbag slung over her shoulder, while her left hand is gripping the rail tightly, pulling herself up each step slowly and laboriously. It is slow…

Hide And Seek

Hide And Seek

Psalm 102:1-2 KJV “Hear my prayer, O Lord , and let my cry come unto thee. [2] Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily.” Children has this adorable way of playing hide and seek: they hide their face only and immediately the whole world is shut out to them. Or, the child closes his eyes, and as long as…

How To Write A Good Article In Fifteen Minutes

How To Write A Good Article In Fifteen Minutes

First of all, why fifteen? Well, why not fifteen? And because I say so. It could easily be ten or twenty, but the average time for me is fifteen, no joke. Secondly, the articles I usually write within the fifteen-minute time frame average around 500 to 1200 words. This is medium-length, which for me works just splendidly. They are not too long that I lose focus halfway through writing, nor too short there’s barely any point in writing them. Thirdly,…
