Okumba Okumba – A Call to Serve

I first interacted with the term “Sura ni Ya Kazi” on a poster in social media and I thought that that was a very big joke. A friend of mine was vying for a political seat, an MCA for Pumwani Ward. At first I thought that that was just some attention hype and a big prank but later I was amazed at how passionate he had become and how he gave his all in his campaigns. Recently, he organized a street cleaning event in his ward that touched me and I thought that I should highlight his journey as a young Christian guy who hearkens a call to serve.

He sent me a little something that intrigued me. Please find it below…

THE PECULIAR EFFECT – MY FATHER

Today is 24 days to elections. My heart is burdened by the calling in my life, the calling to venture into politics. It’s been an interesting but strange journey. There is a difference between what you want to do and what you’re called to do. When you are called there’s grace and provision but grace, doesn’t erase the process.

When Jeremiah 29:11 says, I know the plans I have for you, plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope, it touches on the three very important P’s

1. Promise – To give us a future.
2. Process – plans I have for You, God never detailed it out.
3. Provision – I came to realize Hope is the major provision God gives us, we are wrong to think it’s only monitery provision HE talks about…

Hope is defined as “a feeling of expectation/desire for something to happen.”
Faith is the “substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

The song “Even When It Hurts” by Hillsong United has been in my spirit as I have been penning this down. It basically talks about the times God seems to be numb in our pains, our tears and the calling He’s called us to. Below are the lyrics to the song.

Even when my strength is lost
I’ll praise You
Even when I have no song
I’ll praise You
Even when it’s hard to find the words
Louder then I’ll sing Your praise

Take this mountain weight
Take these ocean tears
Hold me through the trial
Come like hope again

Even when the fight seems lost
I’ll praise You
Even when it hurts like hell
I’ll praise You
Even when it makes no sense to sing
Louder then I’ll sing Your praise

Calling God “Father” demands a different type of relationship with Him. A god is worshiped and obeyed but rarely known or understood. A father is different.

As we submit to God’s authority and grow under Him, He leads by virtue rather than demanding obedience like a dictator threatening punishment. He is no idle idol; He is a living and a breathing father whom we touch base with daily and have access to, every moment. As a loving father, He longs to provide our hearts’ desires but will never give us something He knows will hurt us.

Prayer is the conduit to whatever we need to turn this world a better place. This is why the Apostle Paul tells us to “Pray without ceasing”(1 Thess. 5:17). You can’t be led by someone you never hear from or take the time to talk with.

Prayer is the only conduit that not only reveals the will of God for our individual lives but also helps make us the people we need to be to do the impossible on earth. It’s time to plug into that power like we never have before.

Prayer itself is an art which only the Holy Ghost can teach us. He is the giver of all prayer. Pray for prayer- pray till you can pray.

– Charles H. Spurgeon

Jesus never taught His disciples how to preach, teach or win souls, He only taught them HOW TO PRAY!

I describe myself as simple yet complex, difficult to fathom and a hard nut to crack. I am made of unfailing love, one that sails my boat and oversees my flaws, one that binds me not on any law but nourishes my soul. I write from my soul, generally anything I feel I need to get off my chest most of which is based on my own life experiences, talents, and passions.
