Works in progress

            
            One look at a skyscraper(a multistorey building of exceptional height)and you are in awe of the height,the grace and the power it beholds as it stands overlooking other minor buildings in the city.The only thing you are sure about is the longevity of its construction.Its strong and mighty therefore it must have taken a lot of time and effort to come into play and be the magnificent view it is.Construction personnel definitely gave it their all knowing the seriousness a building of that caliber holds.It took the best architects in the land to design it and watch it become eye-candy for all who would set their eyes on it.The anchorage digs deep into the ground as far as you would imagine.Its existence in the city contributes to the aesthetic beauty which amazes first-timers on that very ground it stands upon.
             I am definitely no architect or real estate guru who is a genius in all things skyscrapers.Apparently,I totally flopped in math and physics which would be the possible gauge of how much i know about the engineering of buildings.God did bless me in other fields however *smiles* like writing.
            Anyway,the skyscraper is just a metaphor of we humans.The only difference is that our construction is directed by our Father who is God unlike the human architects.He is the author of the blueprint,the executor and the final overseer of every bit of construction in our lives.God did not create us to be mere buildings in the large city of approximately 7billion other buildings.In Him,we find the distinction;we become the tall beautiful skyscrapers people admire.Ordinary buildings hardly catch anyone's attention and they come up as by-the-ways even when giving directions because they never stand out from the crowd.
          We must understand that nothing gigantic,bold and beautiful is built in a day.They even say Rome was not built in a day.It is all a process that is MANDATORY.The foundation has to be right to prevent any future break-downs in case of potential earthquakes.
           It is the same with God working in our lives.We often want the quickest solutions to everything;a luxurious lifestyle with everything screaming ''Look world,i made it big!'' Social media especially Instagram has made us slaves to a kind of mentality that there people out there who have everything but don't forget that people showcase the best of their lives and not the happenings behind closed doors.Nobody will post a selfie of a battered face from an untold story somewhere.There are suddenly quick solutions to everything and we get caught up in the motions and hate ourselves when it does not work out.
          I am 20 years old right now and at times I forget that I am at a phase where I should not have everything figured out.There will be another season after this and another.I have days where i wonder what my purpose is on this earth and other days of self-condemnation with a tickling reminder that everyone else looks perfect but me.It's all human to compare and contrast our lives with those of others but never forget we are all at different levels of construction.It does not matter if you are 18 or 80,the master architect has a plan for your life and he is working it all out for your good.
        Stick to your own lane and let God work in you.You are a work in progress and I assure you that God did not create junk.He wanted you to be the highest skyscraper of all times.The never fading beauty,the never-failing champion and the always strong child of His;Yes,YOU.Don't go through life beating yourself up because nothing seems to work out but through prayer and supplication present your needs to God who is faithful enough to see you to the very end.
         There will be days of storms and severe sunshine during your construction but darling trust the one who began it all.Some days,you will feel defeated and unworthy and all those other guilty feelings but darling you will be okay in the very end.Remember to keep the faith and worry about nothing at all.It was all finished at the cross for only you so The earth and all that is in it is your rightful inheritance.
         There will be other prettier,better looking,wiser,more talented people out there(which is a fact) but out of 7billion souls,none has your fingerprint,your personality or the same destiny as yours.God took time out to ensure you were different and he placed his mark of greatness and everything He represents on you.
        It will take time for you to be all you ever dreamed of and everything The father ordained for your life but though it may tarry,it will surely come to pass.Hold on and know that the result of your construction will amaze not only you but the world in general.Your talents and gifts will take you before thrones and royalty.All that you have to do is Believe.
Keep smiling.You matter.

What I'm Learning From Quitting Social Media

I was lying on my bed one night feeling very fatigued. My head was aching, my back was in pain and my eyes were tired. I had spent all day on Instagram and Facebook and looking out for notifications from WhatsApp. Three weeks before this day, Someone had sent me my picture that had been posted on a famous Facebook group so I was curious to read the comments and to know why my picture was there (😂aki I was excited lol...cheap thrills). 
          The group membership is closed, so I sent a request to join and unknown to me that was the beginning of very late nights and tired mornings. I did find my picture but it was just someone who wanted to know where they could get their hair done like mine (😂which is literally just visitingthe barber). The Facebook group is an arena for all sorts of gossip and stories with a whooping 300,000 membership count (I know you've already filled the blanks😝). I remember reading the stories there and getting shocked to my stomach because t…

No to the return of The Toxic Ex-lover!

Pick up lines💭 Sigh! Boy oh boy!😃  I'm I the only one who receives very corny pick up lines? Like super corny I get hungry just thinking about it (see what I did there?😉) Once, a guy told me he thought I was so pretty I could make water come out of fossils👷. My oh wamae! Who even says that? 😒Can fossils and pretty co-exist in the same sentence, get married and live happily ever after? 💑❔The last time I heard about fossils was in History class when I was cramming that topic of Zinjanthropus and homo rhodensiensis (I'm not even sure that is academically correct but it makes me look like I earned that A in History KCSE👀...Heey Mr.Maido👋👋). Then someone reminds me of that horror experience through a pick up line? 😠There's another breed of homo sapiens sapiens(sorry I just had to do that😂😃) that somehow forgets most of the alphabets so their typical pick up line looks something like this (good luck decoding it)...''U R xo Dem kyute Jry.

Oops! I'm Too messed up!

Dear Abba, My Faithful God;

You said, "Go and sin no more!" Though my eyes could not meet Yours because of the shame that crippled me🙍. I started running the third time the cock crowed in denial of you yet You looked at me and said I was fit to be the rock upon which you would build your church😧. You threw a party just for me though I squandered everything😣. Swallowed by the sea to flee from You Yet you still wanted me to be your mouthpiece😲. You knew my history yet you still asked me for a drink from the well😭. Sold You for a little silver and a kiss yet even for me, you endured the cross😯. Killed a man to love his woman but you still looked at me and said I was a man after your own heart😧. How was it possible that losers like us would be the very people you chose to follow you and to spread your word?😕 I'd like to look in the mirror without hiding my eyes and I'd like to see what you see and why you think I am qualified? 🙇Why do fiery branches speak my nam…
