Family bonds

Family but incomplete

This past weekend I drove home for my aunts funeral. The funeral was held at my grandfather’s home in KwaZulu Natal near uPongola, a place called Ugodlwayo. All proceedings went very well and my auntys send off was well taken care of.

To my surprise I still remembered the directions to get there where the funeral would be held. arrived there early and had some meet and greet all my uncles, aunts and elders. We then waited for the send off service to start. I was emotional just as everyone else, because we were all caught ofgaurd by her sudden passing.

My aunts and cousin brother

Sad as it was afterwards I thought to myself that I like to have memories of my family i.e. my uncles, aunts & cousins, some of them I didn’t even know by name. Reason being since I last visited my grandfather’s home – when I was 6 years old.

Soon thereafter everything else was done I fetched my camera and started taking photos of the family members who were remaining as a memory keeping.

My cousins not all of them

This December on Christmas day we will be meeting for a first time together. I can’t wait to share new memories with you all of the entire family

Offering and tithing

As People we tend to think that giving an offering or tithe in church it is to enrich the leaders or Pastors – in actual sense – we give for the taxes and levies and maintaining of the building.

we don’t want to give tithes & offering but we expect God to always give & shower us with blessings – sad truth. Here is a true test in Malachi 3v10 God says “Test me”. We give offering or our tithes as an appreciation and Thanksgiving to God for all the good things he has done for us and all the challenges he has pulled us through and as well as healing we receive from God.

Merciful Monday

At its core, mercy is forgiveness. The Bible speaks of God’s love for sinners – that is, for all of us. But the Bible also relates mercy to other qualities beyond love and forgiveness.

I have finally found mercy of God towards my father. 10 years ago he walked out on us and he did even come to walk me down the isle on my wedding and hand me over to the Manamela family. Last year December he graced us with a visit on Christmas day. I finally thanked God for the pleasure to meet with him and without anger or fighting but having a good time together as a family.

Ever since we are drawing nearer and nearer & he has been born again and now I thank God even more for His Mercy and unfailing love Always. I’ve moved passed the anger and disappointment and I have forgiven him🙏

A week ago God spared his life from a terrible car accident where his car is beyond repairs but he escaped unharmed and no scratches Grace of God is upon you.

Pray for them and release them. When we forgive it sets us free from the bondage of bitterness, hatred, anger, slander and feeling revengefull, because hurt people hurt people.

Choose to free yourself, come out of that prison you have held yourself hostage. You been suffering and depressed for too long & you’ve been bitter for too long & feeling defeated for far too long clain your freedom and let go & let God be in charge of your situation and the persons who have hurt you.

This Tuesday – Choose to claim your life out of bondage and into the Peace of God. Let Peace reign in your life from today onwards. And the Joy of the Lord be you source of strength. Choose to bring back the light into your life. Choose to bring back your sparkle.
