God with me…

My life when God watches over me
God is always with me
and gives me light as I walk through the darkness.
These are the days when I am prosperous,
and the friendship of God protects my home.
Almighty God is with me,
and I am surrounded by all my children.
My cows and goats give plenty of milk,
and my olive trees grow in the rockiest soil.
Whenever the city elders meet
and I take my place amongst them,
young men step aside as soon as they see me,
and old men stand up to show me respect.
The leaders of the people stop talking;
even the most important men keep silent.
Everyone who see me or hear of me
have good things to say about what I do and have done.
When the poor cry out, I help them;
I give help to orphans who have nowhere to turn.
People who were in deepest misery praise me,
and I help widows find security.
I always act justly and fairly.
I am eyes for the blind,
and feet for the lame.
I am like a mother to the poor
and take the side of strangers in trouble.
I destroy the power of cruel men
and rescue their victims.
I always expect to live a long life
and to die at home in comfort.
I am like a tree whose roots always have water
and whose branches are wet with dew.
Everyone is always praising me,
and my strength never fails me.
When I give advice, people are silent
and listen carefully to what I say;
they have nothing to add when I finish.
My words sink in like drops of rain;
everyone welcomes them
just as farmers welcome rain in spring.
I smile on them when they lost confidence;
my cheerful face encourage them.
I take charge and make the decisions;
I lead them as a king leads his troops,
and give them comfort in their despair.
Because God watches over me and is always with me

Invite God if you are yet to my dear reader…

Deception…the truth

Hello friends, i think this is a great piece that does a great deal of justice to the current moral quagmire our world has gotten herself into..

(The Six stages of deception)

Deception is a process by which wrong becomes right, and right becomes wrong. It’s a complete paradigm shift of opinions, standards and morals that is achieved softly, subtly and often takes a generation to entrench into society.

If you want to know what I am talking about, find out your mother’s views on things like sexuality and marriage and compare them with yours. The contrast in opinions does not necessarily prove that she is old and antiquated; it may instead prove that you have been deceived.

There are six stages of deception.

● The shocker 
● The outrage
● The discussion
● Tolerance
● Acceptance
● Veneration

If I wanted to popularize the most unimaginable thing in our society, say like bestiality (the practice of having sex with animals), I would follow these steps.

I would select a forerunner to drop the shocking message on an unsuspecting public. “We should start having sex with animals,” he would announce on radio, TV or in a newspaper.

That is the shocker; the bombshell, so to speak. It would inevitably be followed by outrage. The forerunner is abused and demonized by the bewildered public. Every respected leader in society comes out to slam the lamentable reprobate who dared suggest something so obnoxious.

The forerunner defiantly defends the practice. His critics come out even more scathing. But the forerunner knows exactly what he is doing. He is setting an agenda. Many people don’t understand the effect of continuous exposure on the human mind.

I will give an example most of you will understand. If you ask a girl out and she is not interested in you, the best thing she can do for herself is stay away from you or your words. If she continues listening to you, what was initially unthinkable becomes worth a consideration, then acceptable. Many ladies have fallen for guys they swore never to date just because they didn’t understand the law of continuous exposure.

Once the bestiality message reaches the third stage; discussion, the forerunner has done his job. At this stage there is a big debate over bestiality; with most people still slamming it, not knowing that they are falling into a trap.

I know for a fact that homosexual groups abroad were giving money to people fighting homosexuality in Uganda. Then they would also fund those pushing for it. Initially it didn’t make sense. Until I learnt how deception works. What they wanted was to keep the subject of homosexuality in public debate. They know exactly what they were doing. The more people are exposed to it through discussion, the more it becomes less obnoxious in their minds.

That leads to the next stage: Tolerance. At this stage people say: “I am not going to have sex with animals, but if someone chooses to do it, shauri yake (that’s his problem). Others will say: “Who cares what people do behind closed doors?”I have heard these statements being made by people who clearly don’t understand what they are up against. This is the stage at which science kicks in to ‘prove’ that some people are born with an inherent attraction towards animals and they cannot help themselves.

Consequently, bestiality is included in the UN Human Rights Charter and activists are given a new pursuit. Economic and travel sanctions are used to twist the arms of nations that still forbid it.

Then we start hearing phrases like: “We cannot tell people whom they should love.”

The main purpose of this stage is to ensure that bestiality is legally accepted.

The next two steps are aimed at entrenching it at a social level.

The penultimate stage is Acceptance. At this stage bestiality becomes a conventional alternative way of living. All the outrage has since dissipated. This is the stage at which those still opposed to it are called bestiaphobic (the word will be coined) and they are considered antiquated, old-fashioned, intolerant, dogmatic, religious zealots, bigots…. you’ve heard all those words.

This is the stage at which there are bestiality rights parades in major cities.

Then we are reminded that the same Holy Books that forbids bestiality also forbids eating pork, fornication, drinking etc. Then ‘intellectuals’ think, and use that to rubbish the Word of God, and make it look ridiculous.

The final step is Veneration. This is the stage at which the people who practice bestiality are praised. The liberalist media (which includes almost all international channels) subtly promotes them as ‘cool’, intelligent, exposed. That’s the stage at which celebrities ‘come out’ to reveal that they are ‘proud bestialists’.

Then bestiality begins to win fresh ‘converts’ everyday because many young people will do anything to be seen as ‘cool’ or to be associated with some Hollywood or football star.

That is how you corrupt a whole society.

That’s how previously unthinkable things like atheism and homosexuality and all other forms of sexual perversion have taken root in our society.

Unfortunately, in Uganda, homosexuality has reached Stage four (Tolerance). But in the West, it has gotten to the veneration stage.

You have probably heard of the black homo American footballer who “made history by becoming the first footballer to come out”. What’s historical about someone proclaiming their perversion?

So many other people are being lauded in the media for no other reason other than their homosexuality.

Your mother may not be outdated after all. You may be deceived.

If you found this enlightening, share it with as many people as possible. It might just save them from the soaring plague in our society.

Her Excellency

Never been more certain about the path to a capable wife. Join in the search. Let us seek her and praise her… her excellency!

Proverbs 31 GNT
The Capable Wife
10 How hard it is to find a capable wife! She is worth far more than jewels!
(there’s need to mine and diligently search for her excellency)
11 Her husband puts his confidence in her, and he will never be poor.
(she is true source of wealth)
12 As long as she lives, she does him good and never harm.
(hmmm… NEVER harm)
13 She keeps herself busy making wool and linen cloth.
(busy at her career? *surprised face now*)
14 She brings home food from out-of-the-way places, as merchant ships do.
(she goes out)
15 She gets up before daylight to prepare food for her family and to tell her servant women what to do.
(early at waking up. *I need to learn this and imbibe this habit* oh! She even has maids too, yet instructs them)
16 She looks at land and buys it, and with money she has earned she plants a vineyard.
(insightful woman with foresight, saves, invests, and keeps growing)
17 She is a hard worker, strong and industrious.
(need I say more?)
18 She knows the value of everything she makes, and works late into the night.
19 She spins her own thread and weaves her own cloth.
20 She is generous to the poor and needy.
21 She doesn’t worry when it snows, because her family has warm clothing.
22 She makes bedspreads and wears clothes of fine purple linen.
23 Her husband is well known, one of the leading citizens.
24 She makes clothes and belts, and sells them to merchants.
25 She is strong and respected and not afraid of the future.
26 She speaks with a gentle wisdom.
27 She is always busy and looks after her family’s needs.
28 Her children show their appreciation, and her husband praises her.
29 He says, “Many women are good wives, but you are the best of them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive and beauty disappears, but a woman who honors the Lord should be praised.
31 Give her credit for all she does. She deserves the respect of everyone.
(Yes! She is… her excellency!)

Dedicated to my mum, Mrs Gbagi, the capable wives and my dear readers.

Like a River

I’m not afraid to flow like a river
With time
With change
With the environment
From its source
From its place
From the tops
Through places
Through farms
Through countries
By people
By flowers
By ways
Far and wide
Tall and long
Deep and strong
To give
To impact
To persevere
Gentle
Steady
Excellent
Ever refreshed
Always restored
Flowing forever
Unlike ponds
Unlike lakes
Unlike seas
I’m not afraid to flow like a river
