CONFESSIONS OF THE CALLED (#4) : Don’t try this alone!

Posted by on Mar 23, 2017 in Existentialism, Faith, Personal Leadership | No Comments

When it comes to calling/vision, I used to erroneously say things like, “Don’t listen to what other people have to say. After all, they weren’t there when God spoke to you.” How wrong I was. I repent.   “TO BE OR NOT TO BE?” As I celebrated my birthday last week somehow I found myself going […]

IN LOVE WITH ANOTHER WOMAN

Posted by on Mar 9, 2017 in Ethics, Existentialism, Faith, Family, Leadership | 3 Comments

What if it’s really NOT “a man’s world” as much as we think and neither is God a He?   This is the morning after. I woke up yestermorning in love another woman. And I didn’t even realise till much later after sunrise when both people and birds alike began to tweet that the day […]

WHEN LIFE DOESN’T MAKE SENSE!

In a world replete with success philosophy and prosperity preachers, how does one make sense of life when tragedy hits and one has no mental framework or faith construct to deal? Man! February 2017 was one nasty month—humanly speaking. Tragedy upon tragedy. Within a week a friend and co-worker gets a stroke in Canada, a […]

CONFESSIONS OF THE CALLED (#3): One more reason why reversal is suicidal

Posted by on Mar 2, 2017 in Existentialism, Faith, Personal Leadership | 2 Comments

An immediate advantage I perceive in all of us clearly seeing and understanding that the first and most important, albeit general, call is to love God and people is how that takes away the pressure (and guilt too) that many of us feel to not only find God’s specific will for us, but even to […]

CONFESSIONS OF THE CALLED (#)2: Why Reversal is Suicidal

Posted by on Feb 24, 2017 in Existentialism, Faith, Personal Leadership | 3 Comments

    RESETTING THE STAGE So Mark Labberton, author of Called, argues that Jesus’ two-word directive, “Follow me,” is the primary call that creates and defines our vocation (Labberton 2014, 9). While this seems basic it is quite revolutionary. This is not the approach or content I had anticipated from the title of the book. […]

CONFESSIONS OF THE CALLED (#1): “Honey, I Think we Overdid it”

Of course ‘everyone’ wants to know, “why on earth am I here?” Why else would authors sell a tonne of books on that! But as I discover more about this valid existential question, some of my strong views and approaches to the whole issue of purpose/calling are being challenged and changed. This is a series […]

Life seems simpler when we can stereotype and put people and things in a box. But when your mental caricature is challenged by hitherto unknown facts or up close and personal encounters you had better shift your paradigm. Ghana’s new vice-president and his wife are making many re-think what being Muslim could look like. Read more.

How to Start the New Year Right

A laser focus on God and goals through a concentrated time of fasting, reflection, purposeful planning and prayer at the start of every year has done wonders for my family, friends and I over the last 10 years. Why change a winning strategy?   WHAT GOT ME GOING “Are we doing it again in 2017?” is […]

Puisque le voyage pour l’indépendance financière prendra plus de temps que vous ne le pensiez et sera plus difficile que vous ne l’imaginiez, le moins que vous puissiez faire est de «définir vos priorités», pendant cette Noël !   QUEL NOEL? PAPA NOEL! Youpi, c’est encore Noël ! C’est l’une de ces fêtes d’anniversaire étranges où […]
