Archer’s Post

By TN – Guest Writer For when David had served God’s purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep; he was buried with his fathers ~ Acts 13:36 He picks up the quiver, checking to see the arrows available. It’s going to be a lovely day, he thinks. Setting out to sharpen each arrow, he…

The New Normal?

Matthew Ruigu I got me a haircut two days ago. It was the first in three weeks. If you know me then you also know that hair on my head grows unevenly while my beard sprouts like it is on steroids. Therefore, my barber and I have a date on average every ten days. But…

The Good of Discomfort

“To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power…

The Cocoon

One day a small opening appeared on a cocoon, a man sat and watched for the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could and it could go…

Untold

When the eyes say one thing, and the tongue another, a practiced man relies on the language of the first. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson The success of a relationship is built, in part, on how well a couple communicates. That is what breaks down obstacles in a relationship in the quest for mutual respect, trust,…

Worthy to Serve?

A question was recently posted to me by a friend. Was she still worthy to serve in church? Like really, was she? Here’s her story; she recently separated with her husband after going through a rough patch in their marriage. Having been both regulars, she had chosen to serve in that particular church they attended….

What’s Your Worth?

Surround yourself with the right people, and realize your own worth. Honestly, there are enough bad people out there in the world – you don’t need to be your own worst enemy. ~ Lucy Hale It’s been one year. That’s right. One year since I started blogging. I am so excited, so thrilled, for this…

Love Duty

Last week on 8th March was International Women’s Day, a day that celebrates and recognizes women’s cultural, social, economic and political achievements, while building their rights and participation in the said spheres. I was amazed at the number of events that took place in the country and around the world in honor of women. Women…

Tangled

I recently started a conversation on emotional abuse and had a chance to talk to several colleagues on their upbringing. Their responses got me thinking, about how parenting can either have positive or negative impact. Growing up, my father’s word was law. He didn’t shy away from disciplining my siblings and I, and exercised Proverbs…

UnLearning

Standing tall on the public greenspace of Champ de Mars in Paris is the Eiffel Tower. Beautiful. Magnificent. Majestic. This cultural iconic tower, the most visited paid monument in the world, had me stunned by the level of detail as I laid my eyes on it. It has stood for close to 130 years. Awesome….

Hold Me… to Account

A duty dodged is like a debt unpaid; it is only deferred, and we must come back and settle the account at last. ~ Joseph Fort Newton The New Year may have just begun, but as for you and I, we will continue sharing our literary worlds. Buckle up. Let’s Get Talking. Highs and lows…

Till Money Do Us Part?

Money, makes the world go round. It has become the answer to almost everything. Proverbs 10.15 states, “The wealth of the rich is their fortified city, the poverty of the poor is their ruins.” Money opens doors for opportunities, both good and bad. It is the medium we use to access our needs. I would…

What’s 40 got to do with it?

Today I turn 40! Yes, and I have been asking myself one question. What’s the big deal about turning 40? Just what is it? I know the Bible does show a number of instances where 40 signified a period of trial and/or testing. And outside of it, there have actually been many debates as to…

Kigumz @40!

I turn 40 next week. That’s right, I do. I just never imagined that I’d hit this age one day. Well, except in the last 2 years or so. You see, it’s always easy to think of yourself as forever young. Youth is bliss, you know? I’ve had a chance to reflect on my life…
