Press the reset button.

Amid this COVID19 pandemic, a remarkable thing has happened. The reset button of the world was pressed, and the hand of God is revealed. There are lessons to be learned from this crisis and how we emerge from it is dependent on our actions going forward.

The unsocial media.

Social media, be it Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Whatsapp, Pinterest, Snapchat or whatever the newest craze is on the block can be a useful tool in getting your presence felt in this technologically driven world. But as much as social media can be a helpful tool, it can also be a dreadful master.


There will come a time when you come to a crossroad and have to decide which direction you want to go. You can turn left, right, and go forward or backwards but whatever you do it’s all in your hands. Life is about choices and you have to live with them so it is important to make the right one.

Dream crushers

One of the most heart-rending things to have to deal with are people who persistently try to kill the dreams of others. It can literally suck the life out of you! Dream crushers come in all forms. Sometimes they are the people closest to us like family and friends; at other times they the people we choose to associate with.

The lies we tell ourselves.

The mind is a powerful tool. What we spend time thinking about can either propel us to success or make us cower in fear. We find ourselves attending the occasional pity party because we are convinced we are not as talented or successful as the people around us

Surface Living.

One of the things about abundant living is the ability to form and sustain healthy relationships. People who are able to maintain good friendships and spend time in fellowship seem to do better at handling difficulties.

A million things to get done

This could be the motto of many people, we are always on the move, doing something or going someplace. The funny thing about having a million things to do is that if we are not careful, we get very little done or nothing at all. Some of us fool ourselves into thinking that if we have a million things to do, it makes us appear more valuable.

The seed in your storehouse.

Sometimes we become so concerned about what other people are doing that we lose sight of the fact that we are on the same journey. We waste valuable time believing the seeds that are in other people’s storehouses are worth more than our own.

If it’s toxic, let it go!

As human beings, we tend to want to hold on to things even if they are not good for us. One of the deterrents to living an abundant life is investing in unhealthy relationships. Relationships are a part of the human experience we all need them to survive, but the toxic ones we can do without. We should never become so dependent on another person that we allow them to dictate the terms of our happiness.

Investing for life.

Life is an investment. What we put into it is usually what we get compensated for. If we invest energy in things that have little or no value then be prepared for that quality of life. Those who carefully plan their investment tend to navigate through life better and also enjoy a more consistent rate of success.

The measure of abundant living.

The desire to live a fulfilling life is at the top of the list of most people’s expectations. People want to know that what they are doing or pursuing will bring them joy, happiness and a sense of accomplishment.

You are not the job.

If you were to die on the job it is almost certain that within the shortest possible time you would be replaced. Your desk would have been cleared out, cubicle rearranged and the files and documents you guarded with your life would have become the prized possessions of another.

Take a break!

Take a break! Life is interesting, but it can also be difficult. We are focused on getting the maximum benefit out of each hour of the day sometimes we run ourselves ragged. There are so many things that demand our attention and we often fool ourselves into believing...

All things working together: Romans 8: 38

This happens to be one of my favourite passages in the bible. Even before I fully understood what it was teaching I was drawn to it on several occasions because it exudes comfort to my soul. I deliberately set out to study it looking at the context to see if what I...

Removing clutter.

Since purchasing our house my wife and I have realized that it creates an unhealthy environment to have an accumulation of useless stuff. At times we have to bring our army of friends and family to help clear the mountain of unnecessary things gathered over time. What...

Take time to be ourselves.

Take time to be ourselves. With the many things that are competing for our attention daily, it easy is to lose sight of who we are in the mix. We waste so many valuable hours trying to gain the approval of others we often have to transform into personas that makes us...

The price of success.

The price of success. A common saying goes anything that is worth having is worth dying for may hold more truths than most people would admit. The majority of people want to be successful in their various endeavours, but few are willing to pay the price that comes...

Keep Pressing On!

It is easy to get distracted when you are trying to find your purpose. So many things are competing for our attention, and if we are not careful, we get sidetracked doing many things and accomplishing nothing.

When life gets in the way of living.

If ten persons are asked what they want most from life seven of the ten will probably say happiness. Happiness and fulfilment are what most people long for. Even with this intense desire, many are unhappy and unsatisfied with their current situation. In pursuit of the...

Life is just for living.

I speak a lot about abundant living and most times what is meant is misunderstood. For me, abundant living is living in such a way every hour of our day is maximised. We get so caught up in accumulating material things, accolades, certificates and chasing after...
