Open my eyes Lord


No one can argue that the human eye is one of the most powerful instruments on earth. I say this because I have been blessed with this God-given gift. It is wonderful to have this ability to see and I have had it since I was born. I can’t imagine my life without it. For this I am so very grateful to the Lord. I also sympathize with those who were born without it as well as with those who lost it for one reason or the other. The human eye is able to spot the smallest detail in the widest view, but what the eye sees is not the full picture. Alongside the world we see is a very different world,  one that the human eye is limited to seeing in so many ways. Beyond the narrow range of light that makes up the familiar colours of the rainbow is a vast spectrum of light, entirely unseen. That is why we need telescopes or microscopes to see things that can not be seen with the Naked eye. That is why scientists have …

Peace Within


Emefa is the middle name of my oldest daughter. This is an African name given to a girl. It is a name that is quite popular among the Ewe, Mina people of Togo and Ghana. The meaning of the name is “peace within” and speaks of the prince of peace coming to live in our heart. The only true and lasting peace to be found in this world is found in Jesus Christ. Even before Jesus was born, it was prophesied that he would bring peace (Isa. 9:6; Ps. 72:7). At Jesus’ birth the heavenly host announced that he would bring peace to earth (Luke 4:18). Throughout Jesus’ ministry he brought peace to others. 1. He interpreted his preaching as a mission of peace (Luke 4:18). 2. He taught his disciples that they could know peace in a world of tribulation (John 16:33). 3. He instructed his disciples to spread peace (Luke 10:5). 4. In times of despair, he brought peace to his disciples (John 14:1 – 2). 5. He promised his disciples that the Holy Spirit would …
