Dare to Keep Trying: Success in the Failures

Lebohang Mabula Moreover you shall say to them, ‘Thus says the LORD: “Will they fall and not rise? Will one turn away and not return?” Jeremiah 8:4 Winning feels good. Let’s be honest: most, if not all of us can agree with this statement. The desire to be successful has been built into us as humans from the beginning when GOD said: ”Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that......

Contentment vs Settling

Mpho Taole “ I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength” Philippians 4:12-13 I had a conversation years ago with someone who believed that we, as humans, can never truly become content. She was of the belief that because we always want a better life and because we constantly want to......

Do You, Boo: Love Thyself

Shingai Ndinga Love others as well as you love yourself Matthew 22:39 Having been in therapy for just over five years, one of the constant themes that keeps recurring is how much I still need to deeply care and love myself— even when my system is often rejecting it due to some trauma experienced earlier on in life. I was at a prayer meeting recently when my shepherd shared that God said: “Let us make man”. In an instant, I had such an ‘aha‘ light bulb moment within myself. Before God created......

Decisions Decide Destiny

Pastor Israel Phiri One of the major responsibilities that God has given everyone of us is the power to make decisions. God is not in the brainwashing business. So when we come to Him for direction, He doesn’t hijack our minds and control our decisions. He gives us the power and freedom to decide what we want. We are where we are today based on the decisions we made yesterday. Where we are going to be tomorrow, is impacted by the decisions we make today. This means our future is not fixed......

Resting

Mpho Taole Now we who have believed enter that rest, just as God has said…And yet his works have been finished since the creation of the world Hebrews 4:3 For a while now I have been confronted with what it truly means to rest in God and cast my cares on Him. I mean, we even sang the jovial song in Sunday school without a true revelation of our own words. It was only when I became an “adult” that I realised how hard it is to cast my burdens unto Jesus.......

[Still] Relating With Yourself While Single

Hlumelo Petros Still carrying on from last week’s Relating With Yourself While Single, these are the other the other things that I did to affirm my identity in God. Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added to you Matthew 6:33 Dealing with the Mind and Confronting the Past In order to figure yourself and your behaviours out, you must find the roots of your behaviour and challenges. As somebody who didn’t grow up with both their parents and was raised telephonically by a......

Relating With Yourself While Single

Hlumelo Petros For as long as I can remember, I always thought love was a fairy-tale. I thought I would grow older, meet the love of my life, get married, have children — and live happily ever after. ‘Prince Charming’ would come riding in on his trusty steed, ready to rescue me from the big bad world of financial poverty and “demonic singlehood”, he would whisk me away into the sunset, and I would live happily forever. Although I’m somewhat hopeful, relationships don’t necessarily work that way.  A few years back I......

SUCCESS IS NOT PASSIVE: LET’S GET TO WORK

Lebohang Mabula “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?” James 2:18-20 The desire to achieve success is one of the things that we all have in common; regardless of age, gender, race or religion, we all want to grow and become better today than what......

Accountability: Doing Life Together

It’s only in 2019, almost 19 years after I became a Christian that I am fully embracing what accountability actually means — and entails. Growing up as a teenager in the church, had meant that things ought to have been done by the book. We ended up being so legalistic about so many things, such as going out to have a good time with friends. We can get so caught up about the things we don’t do: “I don’t drink, I don’t smoke, I don’t do drugs. I don’t go to......

Falling In Love With God…AGAIN!

And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” Matthew 22:37 It is so easy to slip from relationship to religion. God is not looking for people who just sing songs they don’t mean, preach sermons they don’t live, pray prayers that they don’t believe, and read His word like a novel or bedtime story. He wants us to know that He is deeply in love with us and wants us to relate with him......
