Every one know’s Jesus

But which one do you know?

Is it the one who was known as a friend of sinners or the religious one that seems lofty and holy that know one can’t reach him , or maybe the Jesus who let John lean on his chest

I want to share about this amazing
Person that I know is more than a man or any man would every be.

My thoughts are pondering on the story of two sister who lived in Bethany and their brother lazarus.

I want to create the setting for you

Jesus approaches the town on his way to Jerusalem and stops off to see some friends , when he arrives the two sisters makes a bit of a fuss after Mary shows Jesus a warm welcome but Martha gets worried about not being prepared for him
Well I guess Jesus didn’t come to eat food nether expected any entertainment he came for fellowship

After being settled by Mary she sat at his feet listening in awe of the word he shared , as Martha passed them Going to and from the preparation area , Jesus said ” Martha Martha” why are you troubled and worried about many things one thing is needed and Mary has chosen the better part listening to his word!

The wisdom of Jesus is so great that he didn’t tell Martha to STOP nether did he rebuke her but makes a statement causing her to question her own hearts motivation
Only for her to see her self efforts was in vain , one of the hinderances of church or community life is pragmatism when our work in the the lord only causes us to compare or critices other peoples application or lack of it.

Jesus often silenced this critics with one simple question which exsposed their own hearts.
Conviction is some thing I pray I’ll never resist the lord, knowing that I don’t always get is right but I want to be prepared to adjust even as the master calls.

I suppose I’m the freshman!

I suppose I’m the freshman of the wordpress community as it’s been my first year blogging
When I first started I suppose I was a bit casual about it all , not really understanding the culture of blogging
until I wrote my first book about identifying evidences Gods grace, yet to be release not long from now.
The challenge throughout writing this book was about my focus and desire, after i finished the book I felt motivate to keep writing and posting some of the things i felt strongly about. The life coaching diploma has also been a fantastic journey which I’m about to finish. My interest is very much based on theology and psychology that harmonises with my core values.

Some people need a hug!

Some people need a hug!
While others wouldn’t mind a simple how are you or thank you.

Some people love a chat!
or a productive conversation and that’s that

Some people are inspired to write
when others prefer music all night

Some people would find time to pray when other would only meditate

some people just had a rough day and others don’t have much to say!

Some people are not sure about tomorrow but they give thanks for the food they eat plus the bone and marrow

Some people are believing while others are despairing. some people are working unfortunately there’s no regarding for what they doing.

Some people just need a hug!

8Mile

Recently I’ve felt a bit distracted with the general routine of my life
Knowing what i need to do and not getting around to do it
I suppose this is where i need to sit down and ask myself some questions then make some adjustments
I believe we all have our own strategies for motivating ourselves but there are times i recognise the need to change those strategies

On reflection I feel fortunate to blog with people like the wordpress community, helping me to be better at what I’m trying to achieve, thank you all

Once a colleague said

“The reason God gave us four seasons is to prepare for change”

yea sounds great! what Comes to mind in this statement is the need for “preparation” reminds me of the ant colony how they prepare to accommodate changes for the coming season.

I know what your thinking , how do you prepare when something is unexpected ?
I suppose that’s the 8mile I’m talking about the divide between what I choose when something presents itself to me or what circumstances could over ride my choices. This is a journey that i or you can only walk, These defining moment shows us what we depend or rely on ,if we believe and who we believe in

Jesus, in his defining moment cried

“father if it’s possible take this cup away”

This was his portion to bear but after some deep soul searching he conceded to his destiny only to please his father.

The last speech of Martin Luther King JR ,delivered 3 April 1968, Mason Temple ,Memphis, Tennessee

Well, I don’t know what will happen now. We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now, because I’ve been to the mountaintop.

And I don’t mind.

Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land!
And so I’m happy, tonight.

I’m not worried about anything.

I’m not fearing any man!

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!!

This defining moment resonates courage, faith and sacrifice not for himself like Jesus but for the liberty of humanity

So what do I take out of this! well My 8mile
represent my process , my decisions and my destiny, no longer a divide of what I can or can’t do, believe regardless of what others are doing, just do the will of God and he will be with you and me through the “8mile”

don’t allow what comes your way define you.
