Consistency

Consistency

22. October, 2013Devotionals, FeaturedNo comments

Have you ever wondered why we are not successful at many things that we set out to accomplish? Or what it is that causes some to have goals, make an effort to achieve them and then mysteriously get side-tracked along the way? It is not that we aren’t ambitious or intelligent. It is not even that we are lazy and negligent; it is simply the ‘consistency’ that is lacking in order to make all attempted efforts successful.

Deuteronomy 31:6 “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

One weekend, I took a trip into the town.  It was a very humid day and the town was packed with market vendors, and busy shoppers trying to make their way through the town as quickly as possible to purchase their needed items. Between the piercing sun and the jostling crowd, I did not know which one was more awful. In addition there was the busy traffic.

MY GUARDIAN ANGEL

MY GUARDIAN ANGEL

He will give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all thy ways. Ps. 91:11

I enjoyed shopping for my family of six and by extension relatives and friends. Although shopping was usually long and tiring I would shop day after day during the summer and still enjoy it immensely. Sometimes my entire family of six would go shopping with me. However, that would mean shortening my shopping appointments to prevent the nagging; or breaking for a long time to make the children eat and rest their weary legs.

—BECAUSE STRAIT IS THE GATE, AND NARROW IS THE WAY, WHICH LEADETH UNTO LIFE, AND FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT.  MATT. 7:14

I went to the travel agent to book my flight and after scanning through many files the travel consultant decided on the perfect route. I was to travel from Montego Bay, Jamaica and then overnight in Miami before going on to O’Hare Airport in Chicago. I was very happy about my vacation until I got to Chicago and heard that I would have to take a domestic flight to Kalamazoo; was this place even on a map of the world!  From there I would have to travel by road for many miles to get to my destination.

Lord how am I suppose to be other than what I learnt to be?

How can I see what wasn’t even revealed to me?

A surprise guest is coming. Is your room ready?

It was a bright day; the sun was illuminating my room as its magnificent rays streamed through my windowpanes. I was ready to go about my daily duties when I heard my name echo loudly over the dormitory intercom system; I was to report to the Dean’s office.

His Time is Now!

His Time is Now!

31. December, 2012Devotionals, FeaturedNo comments

I have this strange year end ritual in which I often remember those who have died throughout the year.  I often contemplate the plans they might have made and the life experiences that they will never accomplish. But in the closing days of 2012 as that mental ritual took place, it had a very different meaning as for the first time many of the names that came to mind were young people that I knew.

What’s in your vent?

What’s in your vent?

By: Renloy Trail

One morning my wife and I woke up to very strange animalistic screams coming from the vent of our air conditioner.  For a while, we were puzzled about what it was. We quickly came up with a list of possible animals and agreed that this sound was either coming from a very big rat or a bird.  Riddled with some fear, mixed curiosity, and fully armed, we proceeded to remove the vent.  Little did we know that what was in that vent would change our lives for the next two years.  It would unleash a ball of fury in our home and test the very wits of our patience.  It was a little kitten, only about 2-3 weeks old.

A Mad Woman’s Praise

A Mad Woman’s Praise

Psalm 150: 6 – Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!

I sat on the bus beside her as we journeyed to Portmore. To the naked eye she looked normal; dressed in clean clothes with hair properly groomed. No one knew that she was mentally challenged until she opened her mouth. While she sat, she read from a Nestle Fitness Magazine and commenced an animated conversation with herself as she posed questions and proceeded to answer them. Persons started to pull themselves away from her.
