SAFE JOURNEY

SAFE JOURNEY Called at a filling station to fuel a car. A boy saw me and said to me as I was about driving off the filling station having gotten the service I needed; “Father, safe journey.” I responded; I am not travelling only came to fuel my car.” The boy replied; “Ok Father. But you are still making a journey even though its a short one.” God used the little boy to speak to me and God is speaking now to you through this reflection through one of His…

AT THY FEET I HUMBLY BOW …

AT THY FEET I HUMBLY BOW … The queen of Sheba came from the Southern Arabian Kingdom to learn from king Solomon’s wisdom. Solomon’s wisdom had a source. The elders in Jerusalem did not consider it a waste of time listening and discussing with a lad of twelve who was found by his parents after three days. O what foolishness is man’s wisdom before Wisdom. O how magnified the foolishness of God’s wisdom over the wisest wisdom of men. Who can empty the waters of an Ocean into a bucket?…

HOW TO ENJOY PEACEFUL MARRIED LIFE

HOW TO ENJOY PEACEFUL MARRIED LIFE Waking from sleep this morning and waiting on the Lord for a message for us; the thought to reflect on “peace in married life” came strongly on me. By God’s grace I had already preached a message on the topic in focus but its only available on audio CD plates meanwhile. Perhaps this reflection is meant to get the message across to a wider audience. Been a pastor of souls for few years now as an ordained priest of God in the Roman Catholic…

THE ETERNAL PART OF US.

THE ETERNAL PART OF US. There is a part of us that eternally lives. This eternal part of us is often not remembered. However, if eternity will occupy our hearts, the eternal part of us will no longer be neglected but brought before us. In the words of Jesus it is crystal clear that nothing can we give in exchange for the eternal part of our existence. Esau begged for Isaac’s blessing but could not get it because he exchanged it for mere porridge. The insatiable quest for wealth, power,…

GOSPEL NOT TRADE

GOSPEL NOT TRADE Someone once told me of the hinderance her family is having with relation to having a “man of God” come to their family house at their village for a family prayer of liberation. According to her, putting together the money to be given to the “man of God” for the items that would be used for the prayer and for transporting the “man of God and his “team of prayer warriors” has not been easy. As a minister of the gospel, I was worried by the recounted…

MOST NEEDED REST

MOST NEEDED REST At certain times of the year especially during summer, lots of people take leave for several reasons. Underlying the reasons for leave most often is the need for rest. Rest is necessary for the renewal of strength. However, there is a limit to the rest the world and all it contains can give to us. A very spacious and quality water bed can be soothing for the body but may not still the wanderings of the heart and mind bothered by the vicissitudes of life. The most…

HOW COULD I ASK FOR MORE? (A Reflection on my 3rd Priestly anniversary).

HOW COULD I ASK FOR MORE? (A Reflection on my 3rd Priestly anniversary). When a servant is welcomed to sit at table with his Lord, what more can he ask for? When a sinner opens the door of his or her home and sees Jesus Christ standing at the door ready to be a guest, of what more can he or she ask? When a mortal through few words of prayer with bodily gestures of faith invoke the Holy Spirit upon bread and wine and it becomes the body and…

Trust God and be True To Him

Take time to worship God today. There is so much He does for us that we do not take cognizance of. So much he protects us from that we do not see or know about. God is ever faithful but the devil and our worries keep us from seeing and appreciating how faithful He is. Know today that only God has total control over you. Only God can pass a verdict over your life. Only God has a say in your life. So learn to trust God more. It is…

DON’T EVER FORCE IT!

DON’T EVER FORCE IT! Can there be faith without patience or patience without faith? Many who profess faith today lack patience and many who claim to be patient lack faith. When a locked door is opened with a key and when the same locked door is forcefully opened without a key, the difference in the state of the door after its opening under both respective imagined situations will surely be evident. Faith without patience is like forcefully opening a locked door simply because one can’t take the pain to wait…

…DOUBTING OR BELIEVING THOMAS?

… DOUBTING OR BELIEVING THOMAS? How do we describe St. Thomas today? We often refer to those who are slow to believe as “doubting Thomas’s.” Thus, it seems we often fail to the see the other side of Thomas upon his encounter of the risen Lord. There are so many who would still doubt even after seeing and knowing reality. The doubt of Thomas resulted in a confession of faith that would ever echo in christendom; “my Lord and my God”. The faith that resulted from Thomas’ doubting took to…
