    RELINQUISH RELIGION

    —————————————————— Matthew 23:2-4 The teachers of religious laws and the Pharisees are the official interpreters of the law of Moses. So practice and obey whatever they tell you, but don’t follow their example. For they don’t practice what they teach. They crush people with unbearable religious demands and never lift a finger to ease the burden.  —————————————————— Religion is the worst thing that has ever happened to mankind. I’ve been saved for the last 9 years and religion is the worst thing ever happened to me. Four years ago I experienced a severe burn out. I was just so tired. I was serving and doing a lot of good works…

    AFFECTION ADDICTION

      ————————————— ROMANS 12:3 Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us. ————————————— I was in the presence of someone who was fighting addictions. The default thing for me to do was to look at them and think  I was better than them.  But a few seconds later I realized I was no better than them. I was fighting my own addictions. That day I had just deleted my instagram and facebook apps from my phone.…

    THE FATHER’S PRIDE

    Psalms 119:71 It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees. It’s okay if your life has been feeling uncomfortable lately. It’s okay if you  sometimes cry yourself to sleep. It’s okay if you have no idea how tomorrow will be. It’s okay if you keep stumbling. Stumbling is not falling. He says righteous man may fall seven times but He will get up again. He is teaching you how to stand. Keep walking child. Malachi 3:3 He will sit as refiner of silver, burning away the droth, He will purify the Levites, refining them like gold and silver, So that they may once again offer acceptable sacrifices…

    FIX YOUR FOCUS

    I am in a season where God is constantly asking me and reminding me to fix my focus on Him and Him alone. To fix my focus on the things He has said, the things He has done and those He has promised to do because forgetting is too easy. Too easy to look at a current crisis and forget who God was to me yesterday. Too easy to forget how He miraculously provided for me. Too easy to be overwhelmed by my current crisis and forget the joy that I once had in my salvation. I have found myself forgetting all these things. I have found myself doubting. Not…

    GOD WILL GIVE YOU THE DESIRES OF YOUR HEART

    Ever since I discovered Psalm 37:4 I mastered it, rehearsed it and prayed it with such a fervency that would put world cup fans to shame. Most of the times I used this verse to coax God into giving me what I wanted up until lately when why I got to understand the true revelation behind the verse. Whenever I read the verse I understood it to mean whatever my heart wanted God had promised to give. The literal sense of it. Isn’t He a promise keeper? Hasn’t He promised to watch that His word is performed? But despite rehearsing it in prayer I found myself with ‘unanswered’ prayers. If…

    MY NAME IS WANGECI AND I AM A RECOVERING PERFECTIONIST

    My name is Wangeci and I am a recovering perfectionist.  One of my greatest struggles has been being vulnerable. My being vulnerable means I am destroying the perfect picture I sold to you of me and the amount of work I put in trying to cover up my imperfections. We are quick to acknowledge our imperfection but unwilling to share our struggles. Social media has made things worse. Looking at posts we are ALL living perfect lives. I am happy to tell you about how loving I am but not how I once struggled with bitterness and un-forgiveness . We post the medals we’ve won but not the wounds we…

    DEALING WITH MY GUILT AND SHAME

    This year during the new year’s eve one of my prayers was for God to deal with my guilt. This came from a realization that I carried a lot of guilt in me. Guilt hindered me from not just doing things but from embracing God’s love and comfort. I was a slave to my guilt and shame. Guilt and shame are like a millennial and wifi; where you find one, you are bound to find the other. First I realized just like Adam and Eve the direct effect of my guilt and shame was to cover up and hide. It did not matter if the sin I had done was…

    SOMETIMES IT TAKES 40 YEARS

    For me the story of Moses is about trusting the process. Moses pretty much knew his purpose; God would use Him to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. This must be how he ended up killing an Egyptian. He saw an Egyptian beating one of his own and maybe he thought this is it, this is my purpose anyway and he killed the Egyptian. I speculate. He ended up being banished from Egypt. I bet he must have felt betrayed, I know I would. I can hear him protesting, “But this is what God called me to do!” He fled to Midian and years passed. In Midian he met the…

    6 TYPES OF PEOPLE ON SOCIAL MEDIA IN KENYA RIGHT NOW

    Lately, social media has me feeling all sorts of feelings mostly anger and frustration.   Politics it seems will either reveal what is truly in peoples’ hearts or turn them into monsters. Bottom line, people, or at least a good number have turned into monsters. There are all kinds of people I have encountered on these streets. Here is my list I am pretty sure you will identify.             1. Political bloggers. First, this lot mostly belongs to the highest bidder and it is no wonder that they keep hopping from one political team to another. The least you should expect from them is the…

    A LETTER TO MY COHABITING FRIENDS

    Dear Cohabitant, I don’t know how it happened or who moved into whose house or whether it was a clothe at a time until you finally realized you were practically living together and you were doing married people stuff. I don’t know for how long you’ve lived together or rather how long you’ve been married. You love each other, that is not in doubt. Everyone considers you as married. In fact the other day you went to an advocate to draft an affidavit for you so that you could be added to your spouse’s medical scheme.You probably have a joint account together.You go to church together, you attend all your…
