THE ERRAND

TRust
We sow to reap
Clothes are on the line
The sun will shine
But it’s not mine
I won’t lie with a crocodile
The eagle is not welcome,
Anywhere in the poultry
I will dive with a parachute
It is our trust in the seasons that enables farmers sow and hope to reap. They hope for rain, to fertilize the soil, sun to enhance the growth of the plants. Rain falls, sun shines, prayers are answered, hope is fulfilled. Trust. You can’t have faith in what you don’t trust, and you can’t trust what you don’t believe in. There is negative trust, and positive trust. I trust a crocodile not to put a finger in its mouth, I trust fire not to put my valuables in it, I trust death not to lie down on a rail road. I’m not here to talk about the negatives, nor list all the things that may go wrong, when I can choose what will end well.
Trust in man is futile, but trust in man is essential to everyone’s growth in life. When we were born, we grew up in the arms of someone, we listened to someone and we believed it to be the truth, we trusted men with their choices, hereby putting our trust in their judgment. If I did not trust my pastor to be saying the right thing, I would not have believed in the God he was telling me about, I won’t put my money in the bag.
Trust is a reward for integrity, and it is due to the people who deserve it, who have proven themselves to do as they say, or act in a particular way. Trust is like a sheet of paper, once you squeeze it, it’s not going back to its normal form again. When trust is destroyed, it takes only trust to build it again. Trust develops as expectations are fulfilled.
This is what an errand is all about, trust.

How Mysterious is Why?

Why did I REBLOG this?

Why do men cheat
Why do we worry
Why do politicians embezzle
Why do fools fall in love
Why are humans never satisfied
Why is it hard to serve God

Why did America legalise Gay Marriage
Why must African Nations beg
Why do we hate for no Reason
Why can’t we be content with what we have
Why is black inferior to white
Why do we love
Why can’t we have good governance (African Nations)
Why do we fear
Why are terrorists unstoppable
Why can’t we live in peace and unity

What Happens If All The Bees Die?

Honey in particular

Inspirational Geek

The weather is turning increasingly summery outside, allowing me to ride to work without a waterproof coat (for the most part) and sit outside in the garden with a few beers at the weekend.  Inevitably the warmer weather brings with it insects, specifically bees.

Before you curse them for lingering around the BBQ food and buzzing around your pint of cider in the afternoon sun just remember that without them things would be very different.

In being “directly responsible for 70% of the fruits, vegetables, seeds, and nuts we consume” they actually form a rather critical element in our human lives.

Without bees “our diets would consist mainly of corn, rice, and wheat”, not that appetising I’m sure you’ll agree.  Oh, and a it looks like you’ll also be a good deal poorer and possibly naked too due to a mass decline in the availability of cotton.

So, let’s look after…

Rx: Writing as Medicine

This is a wonderful exercise, very positive

The Daily Post

There are days when life just feels hard, and even simple, day-to-day tasks weigh me down.

Case in point: this morning, making breakfast for my household felt like a Sisyphean task. Instead of being punished by the Greek gods to infinitely fulfill the futile task of rolling a boulder up a hill, only to have it roll down the other side, I made what felt like the millionth bowl of oatmeal in my lifetime. Like Sisyphus, ruefully watching that giant rock speed back down the hill, as breakfast was gobbled, I knew full-well that there will be no end to the bowls of oatmeal I’ll cook in the future.

Keep an eye on your inboxes folks, invitations to my pity party will be sent out soon.

Maturity

1 Corinthians 13:11 – When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

Maturity has been undeniably linked to age, we expect more from adults than kids or teens. It exhibits its qualities from the decisions, behaviour, actions and reactions of an individual. Frankly, age is the main motive behind maturity because of the experiences from the interactions with people and environment and there’s time for everything. This is true because, I’ve had personal observations and I can conclude that there are some things i did last year or the year before that I would not do today,  or even think about. Not because they are bad, but I’ve found reasons not to do them anymore. Some of those actions seem stupid now, and I can’t even believe I did some of them.

Since, we are not perfect and no matter how hard we try to act matured we still won’t get to that point of perfection cause we are humans, though, we can be close to perfection. Knowledge is what makes us matured. Together, let’s take a look at the exhibitions of maturity, which can be:

  • What we say
  • What we do-decisions, judgment, reactions

These two exhibitions are affected by our understanding and thoughts. There was a time when I had to sleep till my mother came to wake me up in the morning for school, which she did without complaining, until it got to a time when I had my alarm and got myself up and ready for school, this was because, I knew I had my grades at stake. I had to come to the realization that my success was determined by my own actions. I felt responsible enough, and reacted accordingly-understanding.

Though, older persons are believed to be more matured, maturity is not fully determined by age. One of the reasons younger people can be pardoned for their immaturity is because they rarely face the consequences of their actions, but adults are held responsible for their actions, since they can’t be perfect as i mentioned earlier, adults can still behave immaturely. The ability for one to act matured is the same as acting the right way at the right time, which can be attained by the constant monitoring of our actions and reactions. That moment when you were not supposed to reply the driver that was yelling, when you said what you were not supposed to say. Review every moment, read people’s facial expressions when you act, and strive to be better.

I have a little exercise I perform, sort of meditating which has helped me well-Most nights, i dedicate less than 15 minutes in my head, to go through all i did during the day, my success, mistakes, lessons and everything i remember goes into one of these categories. I’ll advice you to try this once in a while, or everyday till it becomes an habit.

As we try to improve ourselves, don’t let us forget that we can always do so productively by putting God first and acknowledging Him in all we do. Say this little but effective prayer:

I thank You Lord for knowledge and understanding. Direct me Lord, to know what to do at the right time to your glory.

I am so glad to be able to share my thoughts with everyone that gets to read this. We all have something to say, something to tell others, something new that we have discovered. Took me more than a year before I got the courage to move on with a blog. You can say it’s not a big deal, yeah, it’s not if you don’t procrastinate. At last i feel ready to unlock my mind and leave it opened for more learning from my readers and other bloggers. Thank you, and kindly follow my blog and we’ll move through this phase of learning together, becoming greater and better.
