You serve what you fear, should you fail to revere the Almighty then servile devotion will have you. Don’t be afraid! Even when you are don’t let fear have you! The dark side of tradition and culture breeds a cultism that modernity cannot shake. Today we consider the broad lens asking is there any meaning in a sacrifice? As we begin 2018, we are all intent; perhaps overtly superstitious on ensuring no good thing is kept from us. This too often has caused us to loose sight of the One who is truly Good, to live a life pleasing to him.
This is the final part of our look at the Hymn that is our National Anthem. If for no other reason we pursue the furtherance of this nation it is for generations to know there is a God who keeps, draws, raises and deposes as he wills. Late as it is, I trust the message is timeless. O God our strength, give us hearts strong and true all for your Glory raise Kenya.
For every export that the nations demand in your skill, grace, and innovation; Kenya your worth is richer in who you are. Whereas the #KOT will have every reason to rant, my rave will remain every success story. For the civil servants committed to raising a republic, the nationalists whose hope has been buoyed by the blood and tears of our fathers, for the hustler who only knows to press on. For the tribeless youth whose sole export is Sheng, the lovers of #MIK MadeInKenya; Safari, Kanga, Leso, Chai, Mwitu na kadhalika, Kahawa.. Mpesa, iHub, you will ever be the strength of Africa's Horn.
Freedom comes certainly with the certainty of one's place, person and acceptance. No name elicits so much pleasure and pain, delight and dislike, grace and grief. Popular culture is today so averse to honoring the head. Malignancy being so commonplace as to usurp the place of our fathers. Can we look again to the foundations, those fathers whose faithfulness has made that name Dad a coup d'oeil of how fully this is a picture of Our Father God. God bless you Papa!
Can we afford Priestly pacificism? With all the degrees of violence that have failed to bring any lasting solution can we indeed make peace; know Shalom and the Prince of Peace? His red letters are so counter cultural and anti-establishment that there lies no dichotomy between the Kingdom that is of Heaven and those belonging to the world. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
Never too late to appreciate the women in our life? Myself having the rare privilege of calling blessed many women that have nurtured me; in tears and toils, and turmoil. Mum, mama, Grandma, Great-grandma you are wonderful! My prayer is thanksgiving for every prayer, travail and labor. Thank you.
Rancid the smell of debilitating campaign buffoonery. How much longer will the dilapidation of the republic be subject to the continued abuse of its subjects? You consume a people for our own when worn faces and callous hands give girth to the wage bill extorted from the least of the least. Your power plays and tussles are not new, neither is the fate of every King opposed to true Majesty. Let the inauguration prepare you for a higher office in the courts of heaven and not the dungeons of despots. Pray God to fix you before He fixes things. Let not the banners of war overwhelm those banners of Love raised by the Lord of Hosts. Kenya belongs to God, His terms and conditions apply.
That One day when nations are gathered we might lived as One man. With a sure confidence, strength and resolve to honor the King who rules above all. Kenya you remain the springboard of revival in so much as you remain in heart and mind committed to God and Jesus Christ our Lord.
