My Genesis lesson

Just as per the title am here to write some of my lessons from Genesis chapter 1-50. Sometime back i posted on my whats app status of Janet Mbuguas book ‘My first time’ and somebody asked me ‘kwani u read books?’. So from that statement you already know am not a book person🙂.

March 2020 when Rono happened to kill boredom i decided to read a book by Warren W.Wiersbe life sentence. The book is about 63 people from the bible and how to apply their characters in real life. So halfway reading Abraham story i realized i was ‘floating’ and some contents was new. Since the book was interesting i decided its just wise to read my bible for better understanding.

Genesis mostly is about family:Adam and Eve,Noah,Abraham,Isaac,Jacob and Joseph which for me was interesting to read. I came up with some lessons from this book:

1)You do for family. On two occasions Abraham saved him when he was captured and when the angels were going to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. Joseph brothers had to tell pharaoh they have always been shepherds in order to be given land in Egypt which is what Joseph had told them to say.

We all have that person in your family that no matter what they get themselves into we never give up on them. You might have lost count on chances given,sleepless nights, money spent, favors you have requested from people, insults you receive,prayers that God has received concerning their life and we should not give up on them. Family is Family no matter what.

2)Forgiveness. Jacob and Esau, Joseph and his brothers. This is one virtue that is always the hardest. We live by ‘i forgive you but ill never forget’ phrase which is a half baked form o forgiveness,until recently when listening to a sermon i learned it is a soul ties😮. For Esau and Jacob it took them 20 years to reconcile. Don’t you think its time you forgave someone who caused you pain in any way and just let go. No matter the outcome at least you will feel at peace. Learn to forgive yourself and it will be easier to forgive others.

3)Love. Abraham loved Sarah, Isaac loved Rebekah, Jacob Loved Rachael, Jacob loved Joseph and Benjamin. We can say were their ride and die. When you are surrounded by love virtue of hope,peace of mind,joy,being content come out automatically which is a plus in your life. Agape love-the unconditional love of God. He was there in the beginning when the earth was formless and void. He made Noah start a new generation,He gave Abraham a son,He made Abimelechs wives and maid servants barren because they had taken Sarah from Abraham,He brought terror to the neighboring cities when Jacob went to Bethel and he promised to be with Jacob when he went to Egypt. God was deeply committed to their live and their future. We can express love through different ways: Showing up for someone and being there, through gifts, prayer, saying it,etc. However you express it i hope its pure and unconditional.

4)Blessings from a Parent. Noah, Abraham, Isaac,and Jacob all blessed their sons.Also the blessings God gave to Abraham was passed on to Isaac and Jacob.Blessing your child is a form of respect that you have towards a person and shows that you mean well upon their lives. When Isaac blessed Jacob he told him not to marry a Canaanite woman and when he went to labans house he married Leah and Rachael. From this Esau realized that was what his father wanted for his sons and he married Ishmael’s daughter. My aunt(mum side) during one of our visit she told us how she always speaks into our lives and never forgets to pray for us(50+ people). Sometimes when you pop into her mind she will just call you and that is something i came to treasure and appreciate. People refereed to God as the God of Abraham,God of Isaac and God of Jacob because they understood and saw the extent God can go for his people.

During this Period reach out to your family,send them a sweet message, call,visit if its possible cause life is too short we don’t know about tomorrow. I will try my best to do the same and i hope a good and better outcome.😊

Something new i learnt was that Cain built his own City and named it Enoch. 😃

See you in EXODUS,Hopefully.

2020…on a High note

Not what i was expecting for this year. Theoretically a BAT brought a worldwide DISASTER🤒,poltically china ‘cooked’ the virus. Whatever the cause the world is at per with curfews and lockdowns.

20 counties away in a different culture,language,scenary, new people and among the first counties to get corona virus cases and under lockdown and I choose to stay sane and safe.

On a high note,

This year i know families will be mended,toxic relationship will have to end,people will loose weight😄, wife and husband material qualities will reveal themselves,reading books(already read 2),experimental cooking is now the daily norm(finally cooked chapo), parents with busy schedule will finally have time with their children and family,most importantly we are going to PRAY. (Matthew 6:8) it is still our year disguised with an epidemic.

You will pray not only for corona but also for your initial prayer you had made to God on 1/01/2020. You will continue to pray for a breakthrough in your family, pray for better decisions,pray for your friends and family,pray for the country that our leader will make good and better policies for the greater good of us(citizens), pray generation curses and diseases to end,pray for that addictions that u cannot seem to stop,pray for good health,pray for the doctors,nursew,patients and everyone in line to stop the epidemic,.etc.

By the end when we go back to our ‘normal’ it will be a better one. The faith,love,hope you have now will still be within u. ❤️

Keep safe,you are destined for greater things 💫
Our hearts,mind will be healed.

“when u pray for something 7 times it means you prayed for it 6times. The first time you prayed God received the prayer and we should continue to give thanks and that God wil answer.”

Heard it from a sermon.

2020 IN A FEW

Qui with a Q Was started at beginning of 2019 as a small gift for myself. I didn’t do a good job in day in writing as along the way i drifted away but is alright. Maybe 2020 will be different.

In a few 2019 will be gone and I have felt the better part of: loneliness, guilt, hate, denial, need to please people and put their needs first, being lost(literally), cried a lot, felt am not good enough…

It has not been good year for me. Trying to find my own path has not been easy. The torment has been too much for me to bear but i have never had suicidal thoughts *maybe that’s good*.

Am sure God has a plan for me I JUST HAVE TO make that step however difficult it is. I know it will be difficult.

I just yearn for his love,his peace,his goodness,comfort,healing,having a second chance. (Am Hopeful for this cause i need this).

As for 2020,

Dear God bless the year.,may it be my year of abundance, year of inner peace, fruitful and productive relationships,…May it just be my year.

🙈💃👫👭🤞✌👍💕😍🙂😊😉

Ephesians 2:19

Day is Friday,20th september 2019 6p.m am walking from home to church for official opening of our church hall and church fence by our Bishop Elect Rt. Rev. Charles Muturi.Fast forward to his sermon from Ephesians 2:19-“You are no longer a foreigner but of Gods people and members of Gods household.” (Second time this month he has preached the same lesson)

He poses a question to us,UNAJIVUNIA KUA MKENYA AMA UNAVUMILIA KUA MKENYA? What would be your answer? For me the the later. With corruption, bueracracy, unemployment, economic instability, CANCER,LUST OF MONEY,POWER etc.,has engulfed this country that we cannot prosper and thus made us not to embrace being proud citizens.East or west home is the best. Every country has its own problems but its better to have the same problems where you are a citizen because that is your home. Just like Gods kingdom we are not foreigners,that he accepta us the way we are.God will test our faith in different situations just to see if we can be proud of him that tunaeza jivunia. That wealth,gift he has given you u can be able to use it to glorify him.

Today i saw a boy around GPO stage who was well dressed but was barefoot. Barefoot because he has this condition where his feet are very huge that an ordinary pair of shoe cannot fit him. Good thing is that to me seemed very happy and comfortable only from the occassional stares from people. I might think he is very proud of himself,happy and content with himself. The same applies to us all that we should be proud of God just as he is with us.That we should pray and seek him. That we should have a listening ear to hear his voice. I have always struggled with accepting peoples opinion. That what they think or say will be same for me. Sometimes i feel empty, which leads to frustration,sadness,anger,isolation and also i feel i cannot leave up to my potential. It SUCKS.

But we serve a faithfull God who opens a new chapter for us. That we should pray,pray and pray. Invest in him through tithing,giving,helping the poor, being a better friend, using gifts to glorify him, being honest, being selfless, showing love,having faith in him and mostly Accept him to take charge of our life.From today lets learn to PRAY,PRAY and PRAY,show love❤,and be a good friend.

 

Human condition-Romans 12

This week i was going through youtube and i came across a dope christian band known as unspoken. I just fell in love with their music. Their music is all about our daily struggle to grow closer to God,Gods grace,Gods love.

The first song i listened was REASON that speaks on Gods plan in our lives and how we should trust him,be hopeful and always remember we are his children. His love is the reason we should continue to believe, DO NOT GIVE UP ON GOD.

Second song is HUMAN CONDITION. It speaks on human struggles and that God loves us just the way we are. We are all sinners but in the eyes of God we are his children.

Their lead singer Chad was a drug addict, baptsied and believed in God. He says he first got born again but had no one to push him to knowing God more so went back to dealing and taking drugs. He later got went for a mission to the Dominican Republic hoping he will find his purpose with God and hoping to stop his addiction to drugs.

His breakthrough was from Romans 12;

1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship.
2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.
3 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.
4 Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function,
5 so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith.
7 If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach;
8 if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.
9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.
10 Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.

11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.

12Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
13Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.
15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.
16Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.
17Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody.
18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
19 Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.
20 On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

A very beautiful verse. From that mission he met his lead guitarist and outspoken was began and he started his ministry through music.

GOD GOT US EVEN WHEN WE DO NOT SEE IT, WE DRIFT AWAY FROM HIM BUT HE STILL SHOWS US LOVE. WE SHOULD NOT BE LUKE WARM CHRISTIANS BUT BE WHOLE CHRISTIANS.

let me share some of the lyrics of:

Human Condition
Unspoken
Lyrics
I fake my confidence and put it on like armor
Five-foot-nine so I try to stand a little taller
To measure up I got to work a little harder
It’s the human condition

I do it all to make it perfect for the picture
Pretty smile, let me find the perfect filter
If they believe it maybe I’ll believe it with them
That’s the human condition

Lord, help me, I’m so tired of pretending
I can’t hold it together, when I know that I can’t
Lord, show me, I don’t have to be worthy
It’s because of Your mercy
You love me, You love me
Just as I am
You love me, You love me, You love me
Just as I am
You love me, You love me, You love me
Just as I am

He indeed loves me JUST AS I AM.

That kafeeling😊

Yes,.u know that kafeeling that you fell when u meet your crush,or when u eat something so good that u cannot explain,the rush that comes with being with someone that u deeply love and sometimes act silly around them. That kafeeling of happiness, u feel hyper, u feel content, sometimes u cannot even explain it.

This is My kafeeling story.

This sunday woke up to some disturbing news about one my family member who went through such a disturbing ordeal that my mind was so distructed on that day. I make my way to church and i am just on my phone (i was reading reference from the bible on our bible study which i had not read-last minute people). Now its praise and worship and people start to dance juu music ilianza kushika.

Then we switch to worship and i remember whispering a prayer, “may you shower upon us the spirit of music from above”…

Then this song is sang and for a second i feel weak and am crying. His presence was with us assuring us that he is with us and he will walk with us in this journey. I am moved to tears that i cant even pray and i feel that God indeed has listened/has been listening and i just felt great.

I cannot remember the last time i felt that safe,alive,felt that kind of love and each time i thought about it i just kept crying because HE WAS INDEED THERE through that song.

That is my kafeeling that i would want to have each and every day. Its a feeling i had once but along the way i have just driffed from him so ITS TIME I CALLED MYSELF A KAMEETING🙂

I had really missed kafelling😇.

Drop a comment below of a time u had this kagood kafeeling that maybe can help someone or will make someone laugh😁.
