“Darkness cannot drive out darkness:only light can do that.Hate cannot drive out hate:only love can do that” Martin Luther King Jr
It has been many years of building a nation that was once under British rule…Blood,Sweat and Tears bought our freedom as a country.
“Oh God, of all creation, bless this,our land and nation…” has been our prayer since then.God has always been invoked in our lives as a Nation…Sometimes,we tend to forget this fact…We forget that we always pray for Justice to be our Shield and Defender and not only that,we always ask God to help us dwell in Unity,Peace and Liberty and of course,we do not forget our neighbours,asking God to bless them with plenty.
The Kenya National Anthem is so powerful!It is more than just a ritual sang in schools,events or public holidays…It is a prayer and an admonition to each one of us to build our Nation because it is our duty.
We have a duty as Kenyans
As we go into a crucial time of elections,let us not forget the far God has brought us as a Country and let us not forget that we are one Nation under God, one people blessed with a diversity of tribe,race and religion.
Many have lost their lives fighting for Justice but Julia Howe(1870) said that the sword of murder is not the balance of Justice.What better way,than to put your life on the line for Common good… That is patriotism.I like what Mahatma Gandhi once said,“There is a higher court than courts of justice and that is the court of conscience.It supercedes all other courts.” Let us make Kenya a better place,a transparent Nation and a place worth calling home. If it means losing life for a worthy cause,why not?…Do not bend backwards to conform to so-called ‘standards’.Stand for truth…Let Justice be our shield and Defender indeed.Do not be afraid to light up that candle.
What are your VALUES ON THE SCOREBOARD…Build a new model and make the existing model of corruption,murder,tribalism e.t.c obsolete!…Blaze the trail.
Above all…Maintain peace and sanity during this crucial period…Yes,temperatures are rising,and…our loyalty for this nation will be tested.
The Word of God in Phillipians 4:6-7,is an amazing scriptural assurance for us as we fast approach the election D-day… “Do not be anxious about anything but in everything,by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,present your requests to God.And the peace of God,which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus”
I conclude today’s write-up with Martin Luther Kings’ words of wisdom…
“Violence is impractical because it is a descending spiral ending in destruction for all.It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding.It seeks to annihilate rather than convert.It thrives on hatred rather than love. It destroys community and makes brotherhood impossible.It leaves society in monologue rather than dialogue.Violence ends up defeating itself.It creates bitterness in the survivor and brutality in the destroyers”
Is violence worth-it?…Think about this.
Vote Wisely.Vote Peacefully and remember to pray for this Nation.
