# A21

The legacy of A21 : Freedom

27 million human slaves on the Planet .

Dozens of traffickers put in jail .

Hundreds of girls rescued .

The largest anti human trafficking organisation in the world , A21 , was founded by Christine and Nick Caine  ; amidst all evidence from ” experts ” strongly dissuading them to start it , saying it would be “IMPOSSIBLE ” to found it in a place like Thessaloniki , Greece .

Someone knew better .

Chris responded with a resounding , ” what is impossible with man is possible with God ” and that they were ” well able ” to do it .

Faith .

Obedience .

To the still small voice on the inside of you that will often ask of you to do things when all evidence seems to the contrary .

That is the power of Hope .

Today A21 is actively engaged in rescuing and rehabilitating girls from all parts of the world , has defied human logic from the get go and set a trailblazing example of not only humanism , but faith that gives rise to it and sustains the courage to follow through .

27 million slaves .

Something I’ve come to learn from Chris ,

” Numbers can be dehumanising and desensitising ”

27 million slaves didn’t even strike a chord with my compassion fatigued , numb brain .

She went on .

Put a face and a name to each number .

The story changes .

And only one thought I’m left with tonight :

” God’s Daughters are NOT for sale ”

Amen .

… ” And He whom the Son has set free is free indeed ” !

Hallelujah!!

#Reminder

” Revelation” testifies !
As Christine Caine says it , ” we read the end of The Book !! We win !! ”
Amen !

What I learnt in 2016 

Is that God is a Non Conformist .

A life of Faith is an absolute adventure.

We are indeed ” fearfully and wonderfully made ” .

Spontaneity is a gift .

Colouring outside the lines is what makes our child like hearts come alive .

Underestimating the power of a seed that God puts in our hands is vain conceit .

Every experience counts and God uses ” all things ” : the good , the bad , the ugly . 

The infinite power of worship words cannot do justice to .

Guilt is not of God . Grace is .

Angels guard us . Always .

There is power in Praise .

Humility and a generous spirit will open doors like nothing else can .

Eyes focussed on The One that truly matters are pretty.

Comparison is a waste of energy and time .

Authenticity does not have a counterfeit .

Living out our own unique testimony is taking back our power.

Loving ourselves exactly as we are , and staying open to growth are not dichotomous.

Our “do” is not our ” who ” .

Going to the altar is our first line of defence and not our last resort .

Scars are a sign of victory , not defeat #Christine Caine .

God is Faithful .

Revelation is more potent  than information .

Creativity is a wild beast .

Listen to your gut. Even when it doesn’t make sense .

You live life forwards but understand it backwards #Joyce Meyer.

Unfathomable is the power of The Word .

Expanding Kingdom Purposes is the very reason we were put on The Planet and yes , it’s a full time job !

Christmas is the best time of the year .

Seasons change .

Eagles don’t avoid the storm .  They soar above it .

” Faith ” is spelled ” R-I-S-K” , but “risk” is not spelt ” S-T-U-P-I-D” #Brian Houston

Hillsong United is , by far , the best Worship Band in the world .

Anointing over qualification : any day !

There is salvation in meditation. Not in the cell phone .

God is interested in transforming our heart and not merely changing our behaviour .

Because He is Able , we are able .

It’s okay to want a break .

When we do  it for the right reasons , Heaven’s resources back us up .

Daisaku Ikeda is a life mentor par excellence.

Infinite is our potential.

I phone is better than Android .

New year is more than a celebration . It is a prayerful resolve .

Gratitude is intentional.

Faith is colossal .

Love  is a force to be reckoned with .

And so are we .

Dreams

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 ,

And

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 ” . 

AMEN !
