You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised. (Heb. 10:36, NIV)
Welcome to the third and final part of this series on fulfilling your purpose! If you have not read the first two posts in this series, you can read them here: The Big Picture & Follow the Leader. Fulfilling purpose is a journey, one that lasts a lifetime. And my prayer is that you, my dear reader, will not be cut short amid your days. Rather, you will live long enough to complete the work the Lord has committed to you and fulfill His purpose for your life. But if you must fulfill your purpose, then you must learn to persevere – that is, to patiently endure every trial or challenge and ensure you do what God desires of you.

In the last one month, this blog has hit two major milestones – first a 100 followers and then 10,000 all-time views, all of that in a month of minimal activity. Coming from an unassuming beginning 8 and a half years ago, interspersed with so many weeks and months of inactivity in those years, this means a lot!

This week, I’ve had my share of “troubles”, from internet disconnection for 3 days (meaning missed conference meetings and inability to work from home), to ATM dispense error and a trapped ATM Card (meaning I had to visit a banking hall for retrieval). It has felt like things were working against me. Or as we say in local parlance, my “village people” were at work….hahaha. But I count it all joy!

Sickness and tears; joy and laughter; sorrow and health
Quietly line your streets as the days slip away
From the ones who purse their lips in endless pursuit
Of nothingness – the things we all boast about

The words we left unsaid, are those we remember the best
The moments we let go by, when our fears, of us, had the best
The chances we never took, when we worried we could lose
Those trips we never took, while trying to fit in others’ shoes Continue reading “Deeds Undone”

Sometimes I wonder how Elijah got to the point of telling God he wanted to die – the point where he felt he was no better than his fathers. He must have felt helpless. That moment of his life was no doubt an unbelievable contradiction. Here was a man who held a whole nation to ransom, without whose word the rain would not fall, asking God to take his life. It was the point where Jezebel threatened to kill him, and he ran for his life, ending up in the wilderness. It was a point of exhaustion, where he was completely drained and unable to summon inner strength for the journey ahead of him. Hear his words, “It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers.” Continue reading “Even Great Men Struggle”
