fight today’s battles today.

I am grateful for the welcome that I have received from my colleagues. Everyone has been kind and helpful. It feels like working from home; after all, this is a place I’ve called home for over a decade. Premature to say, but I feel good about being here. Let’s see where that takes me tomorrow.

Attended a prayer meeting in the afternoon together and somehow it feels really good to pray during office hours and not feel like you’re taking time away from your work! I never felt this way before when I prayed for extended periods of time in my previous jobs during office hours.

Thought of the day – there’s no difference between relational praying and religious chanting if we’re just doing it for the sake of doing it without engaging God with our heart, mind and spirit. Whenever we pray we shouldn’t just vomit words but we should really seek God and ask Him what we ought to be praying about and for today. It’s all about praying the will of God.

HY and I experienced a breakthrough in our journey of faith today. She’s been such a courageous girl, bless her heart – I have a girlfriend who inspires me. God has shown Himself to be faithful and He granted us favour tonight. We are beginning to make sense of Romans 8:28 and have that verse personalise our faith in God. God is good, He is in control and He will bring it to pass.

“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”

Can’t wait to wake up to pursue His purpose in a few hours.

  1. hello bro, i wanna congratulate you on making the decision you believe God has called you to do despite it being a challenging one..

    like they say in australia, good on ya mate! haha, i’ve never actually heard anyone say that.

    it is too true that we sometimes pray without engaging God with our being, i just found myself drifting on in words while praying today.. had to catch myself and reconnect!

    anyway, miss you bro!

    • thanks bro. wished you were here in person for me to share my testimony vis-a-vis. what about you – what is the current update?
      you are right – it’s very dangerous for us to engage God emotionally and yet not mentally/intellectually. it feels like a noisy gong, doesn’t it?

  2. oh my wordpress profile pic, nice. and your layout, nice.
