It’s a beautiful day to be alive. I have these ripples of joy bubbling in me that I can’t explain. Be sure this is and is going to be a beautiful month. Happy New month Bloggren.
October is my month of gratitude. I simply take off time to appreciate the things, people and experiences that have shaped my life in the past ten months. I have learnt to give thanks always because somehow I believe that the things we experience and people we meet help us cast light on a certain facet of the world we didn’t know.
Because gratitude comes with evaluation, it was also time to weigh myself against purpose. To bridge the gap between what is and what should be. As I evaluated myself it became more and more obvious that God had indeed been very patient with me. Something I don’t think anyone else could do. The beauty about God is that he knows how crappy you can get but still stays. He looks at how undeserving we appear and still loves us wholly!
Last month I also resumed our depression series with a poem and a post by a Guest blogger. This has been the most humbling series off the Life series we began earlier this year. The feedback robs me of words. I am grateful that many of us can relate and have taken an initiative to take this healing journey seriously. If you want to talk just email me at email@example.com. Let’s do this together
My greatest lesson for last month is a line from cry for you by Lecrae
“Crooked sticks draw straight lines “
God has been teaching me to believe in people. There was I time I had those yearly filter plans where I would write off people that didn’t seem to be directly impacting my life. I came across something about God bringing some people into our lives and bringing us into some people’s lives. That there are people God sends as a blessing to us and some that we are a blessing to. It’s not an easy thing to do.. but well does love not suffer long? (1Cor 13). All am saying is some days the love God sheds in our hearts will compel us to do certain things we are sure we would have never done in our right mind. It will make us believe where giving up is the more reasonable option.
For November I am excited. We launched Pneuma Fellowship at Kampala Parents School on Friday. It will be happening every Friday henceforth. What a way to start the new month. I am excited for the beautiful things that are going to rain in our lives this month.
How was October for you? My curious self is willing to follow the cat six feet just to know. Otherwise stay happy, live, laugh and love.
Psalms16: 6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; yes, I have a good heritage.
7 I will bless the Lord, Who has given me counsel; yes, my heart instructs me in the night seasons.
8 I have set the Lord continually before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
9 Therefore my heart is glad and my glory [my inner self] rejoices; my body too shall rest and confidently dwell in safety,
10 For You will not abandon me to Sheol (the place of the dead), neither will You suffer Your holy one [Holy One] to see corruption. [Acts 13:35.]
11 You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore. [Acts 2:25-28, 31.]
