Inevitably, one of my favourites !!
In Truth .


I have often thought about the stuff dreams are made of .

Of course , apart from things like a foundation , an innate passion and a resilience to stand up against all odds to make it happen , what else is there ?

Are we missing out on something here?

Stuff dreams are made of ..

To sum it all up , I came up with a quote inspired by Brian Houston , though this is my rendition of it

” Sow to Succeed , and Succeed to Serve ”

If you have stayed with me thus far , good to know you are a dreamer !

Dreamers are not day dreamers.

Dreamers are pioneers , visionaries , builders and legends in their own right . 

They know what they stand for , personally and professionally , and integrate their values to pursue the Highest Will for their lives .

Enriching to be one , I’m guessing! But as Scripture aptly puts it , ” He , to whom much is given , much is required” .

So what IS required of one ?

I believe in the ” sowing and reaping ” principle , the ” cause and effect ” .

You have a dream , a vision you desire the manifestation and fulfilment of .

That’s great .

More often than not , however , it is a process , a walk , a journey , what we call ” the good fight of faith ” .

It build us , and as a result , we are rewarded by the manifestations of that which we truly desire , with good intentions and good motives .

I digress.

Let’s focus .

” Sow to Succeed ,


Succeed to Serve ” .

Why don’t we strive to sow into our God given Dream  and Destiny ?

Sow with our love and generosity towards those around us .

Sow into The House of The Lord with our gifts , talents , time and tithes?

Sow into our vision by speaking Life and Faith into it , every single day .

Sow into it , as Scripture puts it ,by writing it down and making it plain/clear ?

Sow into our dream by guarding the voices that surround it .

Sow into it with fervent , consistent prayers .

Sow into it by sharing it with trustworthy , life giving friends and family ?

Just sow .

So you know , we can succeed and succeed we will !

We sow in faith and we reap what we sow .

We make the causes and lavish the effects .

However ,

Once ” successful “, now what ?

We have realised what was once only a seed , as Bishop Jakes puts it , “an acorn with the potential of an Oak tree” .

But we weren’t built to just rest on our  laurels .

So we take it to the next level , and I just don’t mean more and more creative ideas for our continued prosperity , but contributing in a way that we give back to the community that first , gave itself to us .

So how do we want to give back ?

We serve .

Not out of obligation , but because , as Scripture puts it , ” our cup runs over ” .

We Serve the folks around us with what we have to offer as a result of our Success .

We serve the poor and the underprivileged.

We serve in our local communities and families .

We serve in donations to the global movement against human trafficking.

We serve in The House of The Lord with ever increasing zest and earnest .

We serve in the ministries that invested in us .

We serve with generosity in the use of our resources.

We serve .

Whatever creative ways we can possibly come up with .

We serve .

And guess what happens ?

That ” service” in turn becomes a ” seed ” that you have ” sown ” , intentionally or unintentionally into The Kingdom of The Most High .

As  Christine Caine says ,” you never know the Eternal consequences of the seed you are sowing ” , so never underestimate the power in your seed .

It can be a vessel for miracles !

A vessel that continues the on going rhythm of  “Sow to Succeed , and Succeed to Serve ” . 







It was so cool the moment I saw it , it had my heart !!


img_0794This one is for those of us that await a sign , an affirmation or a word , as we yearn to embark upon a new dream , a new project , a new venture or a new ( fill in the blanks ). 

Whatever your ” new ” is ? 

Wait . 

Wait for  the RIGHT SOIL and the RIGHT SEASON . 

It’s worth the wait ! 

But if you got it , then make a go for it ! 

To me , the ” RIGHT soil ” denotes a “rich soil ” ; 

And the ” RIGHT season” denotes  a “bright season”. 

Rich Soil  will birth rich dreams . And no , I certainly do not mean “rich” in terms of wealth . Though I must confess , a bout of luck on an extra portion of resource definitely helps ! 

Rich Soil stands for a firm foundation in faith . First things first . Always . 

It stands for who will stand by you . 

It stands for the right voices undergourding your “new” thing . 

It stands for wise , Godly counsel in your life . 

It stands for a team of prayer warriors in your life .

It stands for life vibrancy flowing in and out of you . 

It stands for your “crew” that will  huddle and stick close when the going gets tough . 

It stands for its message . 

It stands for the hope , help and inspiration that will be extended to the world as a result of the birth of your “new thing ” . 

The RIGHT season implies a bright season , 

a season full of opportunity and possibility , 

a strategic period wherein you have been specifically positioned to be (I know it sounds cliched , sigh ! But true ! ) .. to be ” in the RIGHT place , at the right time ” . 

a juncture that testifies that though it’s a risk and a sacrifice , it’s not a rash decision . 

a vibrant time in your life  possibly when you feel ” your cup runneth over ” ,

But most importantly, 

a time when you feel that undeniable nudge on the inside of you , your gut , your instinct ,

That still , small Voice . 

My advice ? 

Heed it. 


Melting Pot

Is what I am .

Not wanting this to be a narcissistic post ,

Stay with me .

A kid born into the defence forces ,  safe to say I have always considered myself a transient , nomadic soul .

As soon as we would get ” comfortable ” in one place , off we were to another adventure! Another topography, another culture , another people .

Another start .

Today as I look back , I have Revelation in Retrospect .

I count it a pure privilege to be able to travel the way I did ,  across the length and breadth of my country , from the mountains and the peaks to the plains and the plateaus ; not only was I blessed to see it all , but also live it all .

To be able to blend in , yet stand out .

To be able to learn , yet stand firm .

To be able to imbibe , yet inspire .

Is how I grew .

So thankful.

Though this is not a post about a nostalgic childhood , but one that seeks to encourage everyone to be pliable enough to let life take you where it intends for you to go , embracing each step of the journey as a walk to arriving at being a melting pot of various influences and lessons , aspirations and inspirations , dreams and fantasies. 

To spur you to tread uncharted waters. 

To follow your heart and allow yourself the rare gift of being astonished at where it takes you.

To be all embracing .

To nurture a broad and generous spirit .

To be true to yourself and to your potential .

To trust life .

To appreciate , that even as you read this , at this very moment in the history of your life , you already ARE a ” Melting Pot ” , of experiences and journeys that are unique to you and tailor made for your authentic Destiny to play out in the World , and in fact , before all the World.

To break down the walls and break open the gates .

To soak in and let go .

To inhale and exhale .

To take in and to contribute.

A Melting Pot in a divinely orchestrated cosmos , you have a role that is so representative of you that it even has your unique finger prints on it !

Think about that .

There was never , is not , and never will be another YOU !

Through school bullying and partying ,

Break ups and Graduation ceremonies,

Weddings and baby showers ,

Job promotions and business ventures ,

Learning to parent and leading an organisation,

An abrupt end and a refreshing start ,

You have stood the test of time and are STILL standing ! You are not just a testimony to the power of faith , you have become a melting pot that is infinitely vast and rich in the treasure it holds , and the Treasure that holds you .
