Burn the chaff and reignite your passion


I have been recouping at home but my mind has been very busy and my spirit ever alive.

This morning, I woke up to hear my mum praying. .. a practice she has kept for as long as I can remember…
While I struggled with my neck collar and residual pains, I managed to start praying.
But I couldn’t keep awake. Well this was largely due to d fact that i needed to rest.

When I woke up, her friend came visiting and my mum offered her food.  She declined saying “after I woke up at three and prayed, I had a stomach upset…”

As I had my quiet time,
I picked it in my spirit: “these women are nearing their sixties yet they kept cherishing the sweet fragrance of consistent communion. No wonder their lives will ever be examples…”

I say, we young people are finding it difficult to maintain the glow in our spiritual lives. We are prone to easily  lose steam…
This is a crucial time in our lives-strength,  energy, enthusiasm burgeons from within.
But there are many weights,  preferences and besetting sins tripping  us up.

Please burn the chaff and reignite your passion for God.

Our generation is taking over the platform.  What shall we offer posterity?

When shall we innovative,  when shall we lead, when shall we offer impact to the world?

We are plagued by ‘necessary distractions’, comfort, lassitude and half-heartedness. When will we wrench ourselves?  And gain freedom?

God has got great exploits in store for you… when shall you begin to walk in purpose?

Start strong!
Do not lose steam!
Discard weights and besetting sins!
Discover Gods will. Eph5:15-17
Run with patience!


As you get angry,
