Call to me…

Call to me and I will answer you. I’ll tell you marvelous and wondrous things that you could never figure out on your own. Jer. 33:3 (MSG) This is a principle in the Bible. God promises an answer to your prayers. He is known for doing that. It is clear here that He desires that…

[I think] if nothing else works, rewrite.

Hello. My earliest writing was a story whose title was “one good turn deserves another.” Incidentally, that was the first thing I typed in Microsoft Word (I used comic sans font, of course!), after learning how to use a computer during the post- JSS 1 long vacation. Quite cheesy story, I know but it was a…

Why not Philip?

DISCLOSURE: This is a long post. You might want to get your brewed coffee. I’m a storyteller. That means my imagination runs wild and the muse shows up at any time, and even at Bible study. When it does, though, I get so excited but here’s the caveat: Though this might be an accurate analysis,…

TRACK RECORD: The Creatives’ Version

  You were discouraged. Really discouraged. With that wonderful presentation, you knew you had impressed your prospective client. You left no loose ends and your quote was the most affordable. But when the straight-faced Rep broke the news, a stream of questions flooded your mind – Did you price too low? Was your stuttering that…

UNCHARTED: Part Two

Do you remember how you felt when you first read about Daniel and his three friends, Job, David, and Goliath or Joshua and Caleb? I think you do. Can you remember how you felt when it was your turn? Maybe you rather not. Was it easy to take the path of the trailblazers? No. And…

UNCHARTED: Part One

  Growing up, I always loved to draw, paint and make crafts, but I did those as a hobby. The journey towards being paid for doing what I love started in 2005. It was during my pre-senior secondary school break that I first used a computer for design during a month-long stint at a graphic…

Write as fast as you comfortably can

I wanted to craft the greatest statement of purpose ever written by a graduate student. So I searched the internet and read many credible guides, perused numerous samples and gained much knowledge. I pondered deeply my career objectives and sought existing concepts to fit my passions. I plotted. But I didn’t write a word. I…

Captain!

Act One: “This man deserves your help!” The learned fellows felt the captain was entitled to a miracle because he was a nice guy. “He ought to have it…” they said. A trade by barter between the mortal and the divine, it seemed. Act Two: “… I am certainly not worthy to come to you….”…

Windshield or Rear-view?

Hello, Do you know that before Donut, Snippets, and the steadily growing HeirWalk Blog, there have been “Arise and Shine“, Gulp, Priestly Reflections, and Livingstone? You surely haven’t heard about them, because they didn’t stand. Arise and Shine “digest” had about two or three issues and fell off the grid before 2007 or so. Gulp…

DO hard things… at Summer

Hello. For a while now, I’ve been an advocate of doing hard things. That means intentionally following God to rebel against the low societal expectations. Put another way, it means following God as He leads step by step into fulfilling that great vision of His for your life. It also means using your unique gifts and…

What I want

I will go straight to the point. Jesus lived his whole life in God’s will, which included living exclusively in Israel, but his message travelled round and into the whole world. He wasn’t a noisemaker, but when he spoke, it was with the authority of a life well-lived. As a creative person, or a person of purpose,…

PARAKLETOS

Paraklētos, the Greek word used to qualify the Holy Spirit, means someone summoned or called to one’s side, especially called to one’s aid. Jesus, before his departure invited the Holy Spirit to come alongside believers to help them on their faith journey.   This gentle spirit comforts, guides, revives, corrects, assures, advocates, pleads and intercedes…
