Forgiveness brings inner healing!

Image
In this unique time of lent, we are reminded of the quality of mercy and forgiveness. Human beings generally tend to hold grudges and find it hard to forgive one another, even for small slights. We also tend to dump our feelings on someone else. Sometimes we have been upset by a certian situation or person and we transfer our feelings onto someone who didnt even cause those feelings in the first place.


We need to learn that bitterness and resentment cause inner wounds that we may not be able to see but are no less real! Those wounds keep festering the longer you hold on to a grudge and will eventually posion and destroy you. Who are you realy hurting by holding on to unforgiveness? Only yourself.


When someone hurts you and you let go of it and even pray for that person, you actually heal inside and you can make a positive chnage in the person who hurt you! You cannot fight fire with fire. Where does the cycle of vengeance end if you decide to repay injury for injury , insult for insul…

Blood is sacred!

Last week, one of the pillars of our community in kampala, a senior police officer was brutally murdered by hit men who shot him and his driver as he left for work. No one should lose their lives senselessy regardless of what position they hold in society. All human life is dignified and human blood is sacred!


People do not realize that the blood that was spilt cries out to God for vengeance and the lord says "vengeance is mine!" He is survuved by his pregnant widow and their little children. It is heartbreaking indeed, how can a human being do that to another human being? How heartless can you be? Our local priest gave us the answer in his homily. It is because people are so far removed from God.

Our world has continued to spiral despite our so called progress and technological advancement. When we shut God out, this is what happens. We are even worse than beasts and animals! What a shame indeed! Let us be reminded this lent to turn back to him who gives peace and life. Tur…

Lent is here!

In this season we are reminded of some key pillars that as christians we ought to observe.
They are :
Fasting / sacrificeAlms givingPrayerMercy and forgiveness.  Our local priest in his homily last week reminded us that sometimes out prayers are not answered because we are neglecting the other pillars and concentrating on fasting. If you cannot express mercy to the people around you and are holding on to grudges then your fasting and prayer are rendered useless!

Remember that Jesus says "if you are at the altar ready to present a gift to the lord and remember that you are not on good terms with your neighbor, leave the gift there and go and first make peace with him." Also remember to give something to those in need, they are so many who feel alone and neglected in this world. Reach out to them. This is the time to turn back to our God. He is always waiting for you. God bless you all!
