Stillness so calming,
Quietness so peaceful.
Coolness so refreshing,
A gentleness so refiling
Nature calls out!
Once in the busy life,
A date with the wild,
Up on the stones.
Deep in the jungle,
Silently alone.
Caressed by nature’s
Soft palms.
Just me!
Reflecting on the
Daily struggles of life.
Vain! Its all vanity!
Working all day and
All the time.
But that’s what we know;
It’s what we are told.
And that’s what we now believe
Yeah! Get over it,
You believe it
Today, I know
Everyone’s got a friend
He is there, all quite
All calm, all peaceful
Beckoning all day
Nature is calling!


img-20161124-wa0015Recently, I travelled from Gulu to Arua. I had been to a friend’s introduction ceremony in Lira and had to meet my old good friend Aaron in Gulu, then via Anaka, back to Arua.

I arrived at the taxi park and as I was about to pay for the last seat in the white & blue commuter taxi where 5-6people sit on a seat licensed for 4, a well tucked-in gentleman came rushing (imagine one of those runs to class when the dreaded teacher is holding a Kiboko and standing at the door). He had already booked that same seat but not paid yet but he of course got the nod ahead of me. The implication was that I had to wait (God knows how long) for the other taxi which I guessed would take long to be filled. Disappointed!

Just then, these usually “noisy men (brokers)” pointed me to the next taxi and being the first customer gave me the seat of honor; the front spacious and comfortable seat next to the driver. Talk of a blessing in disguise. People kept filling the rest of the seats and finally, a courageous lady walked straight and demanded to sit next to me in the remaining seat.

Pleasantries were exchanged and soon I realized that much as she had a “Christian” name, she was actually a Muslim. She told me about how she picked up that name, how she went to a Catholic school and knows how to recite the rosary and would take readings and even sing in church. Besides, she talked about how she used to love & enjoy clubbing and drinking & fun and how she sees that as vanity now.

“If you were not born in a Muslim family, which faith would you take?!” I asked. “Catholic.” she shot back. “At least they are closer to Muslims in their DRESSING and HUMILITY in church.” I let that go…

I realised she actually had vast Biblical knowledge. She had done Christian Religious Education (CRE) in A’level and intruigingly stated that her favourite book was Revelation. I was amazed; the book Christians dread so much is her fav; wow! However when I asked her whether she identified the main character, (the hero) in Revelation, somehow she could NOT. I then pulled a Bible from my backpack so that I could point to her the key verses such as Rev 1:1(Revelation about Jesus), 7:14, 12:11, 20:4, & 22:20 (I am coming soon). Oh, how I wish you were there to see the reaction! In utter shock, raised her head & leaned forward, supporting the chin with her palm she burst out laughing “Is it that serious hahaha?” With emphasis, she added, “I mean, are you that serious that you have to carry a Bible everywhere?” “It is VERY serious. It’s a matter of heaven or hell.” I reassuringly responded.

“So why don’t you go clubbing now days?” I drifted back to that earlier topic. “Hhhmm you,” she started, “when I think of all WE DO and how Allah will come to judge us one day yet He has warned us, why do I have to do those things? Some times I cry after listening to the preachings (Islamic) and my friends usually wonder why I cry. But just the thought of being un-able to do ALL God requires and how there is nothing I can do to finish paying for all my errors draws my tears.”

Hearing the last line “Some times I cry after listening to the preachings (Islamic) and my friends usually wonder why I cry. But just the thought of being un able to do ALL God requires and how there is nothing I can do to finish paying for all my errors draws my tears.” It occurred to me that this was the point. The dichotomy of Islam and Christianity. Where the two part ways. Where one leads to eternal suffering yet another to eternal joy. The Muslims believe that Christians go to eternal suffering while the Christian book says the exact opposite. Yet both can’t be right. Can they?

As a muslim realises his or her inability in fulfilling the demands of the heavenly Overall, so does a Christian BUT as a Muslim hopefully tries to work his or her way (without Jesus’ saving power) to eternal life, a Christian worships because it is DONE. A christian sings songs of praises. Praises to him who bore our sins on the cross; Jesus (John 1:29) . To the lamb that was slain. To His FINISHED work on the cross.

For the Muslim & the Christian ought to know that “by such grace you have been saved through faith. This does not come from you; it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8) & “ all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name (the name Jesus), He gave the right to become children of God (John 1:12). And Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6) Lastly, “In addition, the Father judges no one. Instead, he has given the Son absolute authority to judge.” John 5:22

So you can’t actually dodge Him. Can you?!


A few days ago, a friend trusted me with her personal information. She poured her heart out to me on what has been happening to her. All her struggles; betrayal from friends, no one understood her, condemnation by the church friends, being fired from her job and last of all a loss of a loved one. Tragic ah?! Yeah! Thats right and she had to endure all that to the last pinch.

The need for God to shout a reply was much more than ever. Feeling angry, church never was the sensible place of refuge but a painful reminder of being abandoned by the Most high. Her faith was given a blow to its core.

Her mind was a battle-field of unanswered questions:- “Does God really hear me as He claims?”, “Is God concerned of the pain I am in?”, “Is God doing something I don’t know and understand?”, “Can God allow pain to such an extent?”, “Since He is so silent, is He even there?” were some of the questions all over her mind. Day by day, she was growing more skeptical and tending towards an atheistic thinking.

In all that she shared, it was hard to see where God was yet it was also plain that He was incharge as she narrated how she shockingly got a call up for a job the same day she was officially fired. Talk of a better job. Bitter-sweet ah!

What was I supposed to say?!! I honestly couldn’t say anything! Nothing!

Thank God I can now help her and may be you too.

You see, if you can read this, you probably have ever sat for a test. If that be true, then my correct guess is that you have ever done promotional tests. Usually, however tough the test may be, the teacher always quietly observes you, making sure you do NOT cheat and if you do, you get a retake. The teacher is dead quiet knowing that the test can’t kill you. He waits for the bell to ring so he can come to your rescue and take away the test paper and then do corrections.

Isn’t that what happens with every Christian?!

Isn’t it true that God always seems most silent when we needed Him most?!

God annoyingly seems silent even if you cry. May be because He wrote down somewhere that “No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man;….” 1Cor 10:13a (NASB). Though He may seem unbothered, Luke 18:7 actually says that; “………He will always give them what is right. He will not be slow to answer them.”

My friend, chances are that when you need God and He seems so distant, you could be in for a serious promotional test.

James 1:2-3 “Consider it pure joy, my brothers, when you are involved in various trials, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance.”

Verse 12 sums it up: “How blessed is the man who endures temptation! When he has passed the test, he will receive the victor’s crown of life that God has promised to those who keep on loving him.”

Thats not all:- the beautiful part is “….. and God is faithful, He WILL NOT allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.” 1Cor 10:13b (NASB); “And remember, I am with you each and every day until the end of the age.” Mathew 28:20b

It’s gonna be tough BUT all you need may just be patience. The the written word of God may seem not to make sense at such times, 2Peter 1:19 calls it a more sure word of prophesy. Running away may NOT be the solution because it makes it rather more unlikely for you to hear what God has to say. Expect His strength to carry you through till the bell rings.

In the meantime, get a note book and journal (write down) everything happening to you. People you meet, decisions you make, bitter experiences, sweet moments, your feelings and emotions (anger, pain, comfort etc); I mean EVERYTHING. You know why?! Because after the corrections (of your thoughts on the experiences), your records will give you a bigger picture and reveal God in a way you never saw or imagined during your pain. Try it out!

God bless you.



Today being Easter, I went back in time to catch up with this guy Christians are so crazy about. The dude called Jesus.

Am now in Jerusalem and I plan to take this guy for a chat (though I wonder if He will honour it. I hear He always goes for chats uninvited LOL)

(As I waited, I started muttering to myself, how exactly I was going to drive my points home…)

So afterall, all the stuff you and others like Isaiah, David, Joel & Zechariah & angel Gabriel yupped about has happened as you guys said. Now I must confess that I quite find it difficult to believe you. Even as I talk to you, I guess you know how many questions & wonders are going on in my mind. You know I dont just want to accept something because many people are all excited about. What if they are wrong? Hope you hold it not against me. Am just being honest?”

“What if they are right?” He interjected right from besides me.

Oh, Huh hhmm well, I didnt know you were here. Hhhmm huh, I just didnt think about that? But since you have asked, I will say it would seem really dumb. Isnt it? I mean, where on earth can one get out of the grave? Let alone failing to rot and stink huh?! Damn!!!

But seriously, let me ask you “Dude, how did you get out of the grave?”

“My friend,” (What?! Are you calling me a friend?)
“Hahahaha” He let out a heartyreassuring laugh (I never imagined he was that friendly).
(He continued….)
“I know you have ever looked at the skies in a dark night. Do you know how many they are?”

“Nope. Science says there are billions of galaxies and each galaxy has billions of stars , how the hell do you ask me such a rediculous question? How would you expect me to know? Reallyyyy?? Anyway Why do you ask me that?” I asked…..

He kept silent with his head lowered in between his knees, his chin resting on his chest as if deeply trying to remember something, but He seemed to be fighting off some great agony from whatever was going on in His mind. Slowly, He then lifted his head so that the chin rested on his folded knees & asked……

Have you ever read Isaiah 40:25 “To whom can you compare me? Whom do I resemble?” says the Holy One.

26 Look up at the sky! Who created all these heavenly lights? He is the one who leads out their ranks; he calls them all by name. Because of his absolute power and awesome strength, not one of them is missing.” and Luke 1:37 For nothing will be impossible with God.”

If you think I asked another question, then I give you the chance to ask Him yourself.

******End of part 1******

Am afraid from this experience, every one will have to write his own part 2. The major scene is your own escape from the grave.

Hint: Romans 10:9…….if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”



I was dead shocked. It felt like a dream. I had never seen anything like that. Neither did I ever imagine. Oh, who am I to have seen God run across the sky?(Allegory).

It was in a little country known for its seemingly fairy tales of its people. Promises and promises. Fulfilments and fulfilments. Wars and victories intermingled with rebellion and repentance. Travelling across the Arabian desert to the Egyptian lands and back. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, Solomon are a few of the key characters in this reality show.

These guys had all these seemingly mysterious tales of a God who promised a lot in abstract. No one understood what exactly He meant. For it was beyond what the little white cake inside their skulls could comprehend. This was an eternal mystery that would only become plain after it had happened.

A little two thousand years ago, the unthinkable, the unimaginable, the humanly impossible happened. GOD RAN ACROSS THE SKY.

Across the sky he ran into a dirty manger in a poor country. Into the hands of villains he tripped and landed. On the cross they nailed him. Yes they did. Never did they know that He was running to save them.

I thought these guys were heartless but I just saw my own heart. May be am worse than they. For they understood NOT the mystery but I do yet I don’t love him. The journey he took, across the skies through the poverty, mockery, torture, pain, defamation and EVEN being nailed to the cross.

“What is man that you think of him or the son of man that you care for him?” Hebrews 2:6

Oh he loves me so!!!!!

(Does God love you? What a better time to let your best friends know how much God loves you by sharing His TRUTH!! It doesn’t matter whether they believe you or they will accept your message but you would have shown Him great love)

Happy Easter.


(Its REALLY long but PLEASE just read through. I beg you as a friend).


13 “Look, my servant will succeed! He will be elevated, lifted high, and greatly exalted –

14 (just as many were horrified by the sight of you) he was so disfigured he no longer looked like a man;

15 his form was so marred he no longer looked human – so now he will startle many nations. Kings will be shocked by his exaltation, for they will witness something unannounced to them, and they will understand something they had not heard about.

Isaiah 53

1 Who would have believed what we just heard? When was the LORD’s power revealed through him?

2 He sprouted up like a twig before God, like a root out of parched soil; he had no stately form or majesty that might catch our attention, no special appearance that we should want to follow him.

3 He was despised and rejected by people, one who experienced pain and was acquainted with illness; people hid their faces from him; he was despised, and we considered him insignificant.

4 But he lifted up our illnesses, he carried our pain; even though we thought he was being punished, attacked by God, and afflicted for something he had done.

5 He was wounded because of our rebellious deeds, crushed because of our sins; he endured punishment that made us well; because of his wounds we have been healed.

6 All of us had wandered off like sheep; each of us had strayed off on his own path, but the LORD caused the sin of all of us to attack him.

7 He was treated harshly and afflicted, but he did not even open his mouth. Like a lamb led to the slaughtering block, like a sheep silent before her shearers, he did not even open his mouth.

8 He was led away after an unjust trial – but who even cared? Indeed, he was cut off from the land of the living; because of the rebellion of his own people he was wounded.

9 They intended to bury him with criminals, but he ended up in a rich man’s tomb, because he had committed no violent deeds, nor had he spoken deceitfully.

10 Though the LORD desired to crush him and make him ill, once restitution is made, he will see descendants and enjoy long life, and the LORD’s purpose will be accomplished through him.

11 Having suffered, he will reflect on his work, he will be satisfied when he understands what he has done. “My servant will acquit many, for he carried their sins.

12 So I will assign him a portion with the multitudes, he will divide the spoils of victory with the powerful, because he willingly submitted to death and was numbered with the rebels, when he lifted up the sin of many and intervened on behalf of the rebels.”

Hundreds of years later,

Mathew 24- The Passover

17 Now on the first day of the feast of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus and said, “Where do you want us to prepare for you to eat the Passover?”

18 He said, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says, “My time is near. I will observe the Passover with my disciples at your house.

19 So the disciples did as Jesus had instructed them, and they prepared the Passover.

20 When it was evening, he took his place at the table with the twelve.

21 And while they were eating he said, “I tell you the truth, one of you will betray me.”

22 They became greatly distressed and each one began to say to him, “Surely not I, Lord?”

23 He answered, “The one who has dipped his hand into the bowl with me will betray me.

24 The Son of Man will go as it is written about him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would be better for him if he had never been born.”

25 Then Judas, the one who would betray him, said, “Surely not I, Rabbi?” Jesus replied, “You have said it yourself.”

26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after giving thanks he broke it, gave it to his disciples, and said, “Take, eat, this is my body.”

27 And after taking the cup and giving thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you,

28 for this is my blood, the blood of the covenant, that is POURED out for many for the FORGIVENESS of SINS.

29 I tell you, from now on I will not drink of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”

30 After singing a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

The Prediction of Peter’s Denial

31 Then Jesus said to them, “This night you will all fall away because of me, for it is written: ‘I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.’

32 But after I am raised, I will go ahead of you into Galilee.”

33 Peter said to him, “If they all fall away because of you, I will never fall away!”

34 Jesus said to him, “I tell you the truth, on this night, before the rooster crows, you will deny me three times.”

35 Peter said to him, “Even if I must die with you, I will never deny you.” And all the disciples said the same thing.


36 Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to the disciples, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.”

37 He took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and became anguished and distressed.

38 Then he said to them, “My soul is DEEPLY GRIEVED, EVEN to the POINT of DEATH. Remain here and stay awake with me.”

39 Going a little farther, he threw himself down with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, IF POSSIBLE, let this cup pass from me! Yet not what I will, but what you will.”

40 Then he came to the disciples and found them sleeping. He said to Peter, “So, couldn’t you stay awake with me for one hour?

41 Stay awake and pray that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

42 He went away a SECOND time and prayed, “My Father, if this cup cannot be taken away unless I drink it, your will must be done.”

43 He came again and found them sleeping; they could not keep their eyes open.

44 So leaving them again, he went away and prayed for the THIRD time, saying the same thing once more.

45 Then he came to the disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Look, the hour is approaching, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

46 Get up, let us go. Look! My betrayer is approaching!”

51 But one of those with Jesus grabbed his sword, drew it out, and struck the high priest’s slave, cutting off his ear.

52 Then Jesus said to him, “Put your sword back in its place! FOR ALL WHO TAKE HOLD OF THE SWORD WILL DIE BY THE SWORD.


54 How then would the scriptures that say it must happen this way be fulfilled?”

55 At that moment Jesus said to the crowd, “Have you come out with swords and clubs to arrest me like you would an outlaw? Day after day I sat teaching in the temple courts, yet you did not arrest me.

56 But this has happened so that the scriptures of the prophets would be fulfilled.” Then all the disciples left him and fled.

Mathew 27
17 So after they had assembled, Pilate said to them, “Whom do you want me to release for you, Jesus Barabbas or Jesus who is called the Christ?”

18 (For he knew that they had handed him over because of envy.)

19 As he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent a message to him: “Have nothing to do with that INNOCENT MAN; I have suffered greatly as a result of a dream about him today.”

20 But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowds to ask for Barabbas and to have Jesus killed.

21 The governor asked them, “Which of the two do you want me to release for you?” And they said, “Barabbas!”

22 Pilate said to them, “Then what should I do with Jesus who is called the Christ?” They all said, “Crucify him!”

23 He asked, “Why? WHAT WRONG HAS HE DONE?” But they shouted more insistently, “Crucify him!”

24 When Pilate saw that he could do nothing, but that instead a riot was starting, he took some water, washed his hands before the crowd and said, “I AM INNOCENT OF THIS MAN’S BLOOD. You take care of it yourselves!”

25 In reply all the people said, “Let his blood be on us and on our children!”

26 Then he released Barabbas for them. But after he had Jesus FLOGGED, he handed him over to be CRUCIFIED.

27 Then the governor’s soldiers took Jesus into the governor’s residence and gathered the whole cohort around him.

28 They stripped him and put a scarlet robe around him,

29 and after braiding a CROWN OF THORNS, they put it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand, and kneeling down before him, they mocked him: “Hail, king of the Jews!”

30 They SPAT ON HIM and took the staff and STRUCK him REPEATEDLY on the head.

31 When they had mocked him, they STRIPPED HIM of the robe and put his own clothes back on him. Then they led him away to crucify him.

35 When they had crucified him, they DEVIDED HIS CLOTHES BY THROWING DICE.

39 Those who passed by DEFAMED HIM, shaking their heads

40 and saying, “You who can destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself! If you are God’s Son, come down from the cross!”

41 In the same way even the chief priests – together with the experts in the law and elders –were MOCKING HIM:

42 “He saved others, but he cannot save himself! He is the king of Israel! If he comes down now from the cross, we will believe in him!

43 He trusts in God – let God, if he wants to, deliver him now because HE SAID, ‘I am God’s Son’!”

45 Now from noon until three, darkness came over all the land.

46 At about three o’clock Jesus shouted with a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?”

50 Then Jesus CRIED out again with a loud voice and GAVE UP HIS SPIRIT.

51 Just then the temple curtain was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks were split apart.

Before all these events happened, long a go, a famous king talked of it…..catch it up here….

Psalms 22
17 I can count all my bones; my enemies are gloating over me in triumph.

18 They are dividing up my clothes among themselves; they are rolling dice for my garments.

So many was said of him you have just been reading about…

In His own words
John 14:6 Jesus replied, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

7 If you have known me, you will know my Father too.”

Do you know Jesus?

Lastly Heb 3:15 As it says, “Oh, that today you would listen as he speaks! Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”

Share this with EVERY ONE you love. May God bless you as this heart touching story gets across the globe.

Can He use you today?



For we are saved by grace through faith.

You will always hear ‘Christians’ quoting that its ones faith that saves him/her. It is true BUT incomplete interms of explanation.

This statement does not specify the object of the faith which is being referred to. It can mean that; for example Muslims can be saved even when they deny the exclusive saving power of Jesus.

Looking at the complete picture of the bible, by grace means that every one didn’t deserve to be saved, implying that since grace is Gods gift, its to every one i.e everyone has the potential to be saved: but through faith means the faith on the object of the faith i.e Jesus’ saving power (John 14:6).

Now saved by grace means every one can be saved but the aspect of faith means that you need to rely on the power of Jesus because He is the object of the grace itself.

Let me ask again: how are we saved??

Now; Are you sure you are saved?



Haaaa!!!! Scanning through this pool of knowledge on the internet, I came across another of life’s hidden mindboggling little amazements; & this time, its a molecule. One rarely mentioned by biologists. Its called Laminin.

Laminin is not just your ordinary protein chain. It forms the basement membrane I was taught that all tissues have as a basic concrete block.

Not just that: It is a mirror of what God’s word says happened long time; THE CROSS of “The lamb of God slain before the foundations of the world.” & “through whom All were created” & by whom we exist.

My friend, this God Christians believe in does to me live up to His claims.

Thank you for visiting this page.


The bible has many sections & one important section is the Historical books.

Every thing that has happened un this world of ours does seem to hace a significance.

Remember the Red sea sagga, some scientist will tell you that it was a wave clash or blahblah… Yes that might be true but look here: who commands all these stuff??

Another one is just about to happen: Thanks to astronomy that we know it before hand…

We can explain it but we SHALL NEVER KNOW why it happens at exactly this point. Though we have an idea that 4more may happen before 2100.

Take a look.
