A Brief History About This Blog

This is so hard for me to do first of all I am a little bit confused as to what I should or should not write down, cos am not a writer who knows how to play with words. I have been vacillating for a quite some time now... I keep asking this question "Good Lord, do I have to tell the world my story"? what's to tell? who cares to listen to what I have to say? I know for sure that when God sends you on an assignment, you don't have to look at it from the human/self perspective. "God knows my story is not sweet to tell , left alone to me I wouldn't say anything" BUT I know that whatever God wants me to do that I have no choice but to obey. even if it is for only the person that God wants to touch by it... I shall be most humbled and I pray that it Happens in Jesus Mighty Name Amen.

Maybe few of you know this but will say it anyway's,  this month of April is the 1st Anniversary of this blog Channelofhealing it is been one Great Holy Experience for me to say the least, I never knew I'd one day have so many friends all over the world who would even read my blog. . . let alone comment on the blog, and have such great relationships with some, I never knew I'd make friends online too in the process of blogging to the Glory of God... I give all the Glory to Jesus the Author and Finisher of my faith, Father God! Father! I in no ways want to ascribe any Glory to myself but to you Oh Lord be all Glory and Honor  in Jesus Mighty Name Amen I pray. . . Thank You Holy Spirit

Brief History

Starting and maintaining  this blog was not easy at first, I really had it tough at first being an African and all the names we are being called by the World, I thought it would be difficult being accepted at first. as God would  have it... I now have great Friends in Jesus Mighty Name Amen. Also I had to learn everything from scratch like most of us who maintain blogs that means many sleepless nights and less time spent with family but all the same it's been a wonderful experience for me. Praise God!!!

Secondly when  I started this blog I was a little bit worried if I should use the blog as a portal for evangelism I.e "Preaching the Word of God alone"... or should I just share thoughts and stories about God and all that concerns Christianity? or should it just be jokes and quotes, all I wanted then was to have people come read the blog. So I went to the Lord to ask for a format and the Lord told me to do it all ... so that settled that for me. further down the line I found out that our cultures and traditions are different . I started seeing Christianity from  everyone's point of view without me pushing my views as the most correct. As God would have it I started learning on the job and gained empirical knowledge by making some mistakes of my own... I have come to learn and appreciate God and everything this blog stands for, through many experiences shared and observed over time.

when I mean overtime as God would have it, I will give you few examples like there was one particular day a lady from Yahoo Answers ''I was pretty active there then " she visited this blog and dropped a comment on a short story post and she sent me an email telling me how she loved the blog and bookmarked it for her whole family that she would only visited blogs with Short Stories /Parables that if she wanted to listen to preaching she would go to Church on Sundays and get that... (I thought to myself maybe she is right!)  then my sister was after the Jokes and then I had some visitors who preferred the Quotes and One liners while so many preferred the Pictures so I now knew God had really told me to include all so that there would be something for everybody and in the end fellowship with the brethren is all this blog is about. Praise God!!!

Now to the matter at Hand I was instructed by the Holy Spirit to tell my story at the one year Anniversary of the blog so I would try to give you all my esteemed friends and visitors the short version as possible. .. and as soon as possible too. . . God willing.

FYI,  you can visit my New Blog if and when you get the chance it's in it's developmental stage so bear with me. Love

    It's heartening to read why this blog was started and how you have gone through that much to develop what we know today to be one great blog that truly glorifies God, and is an encouragement to many!

    God shall provide when we heed His call and do His will. Keep running the marathon, and keep up the great work you're doing!

  5. To God be all the Glory!!!Thanks Isaiah my beloved brother, and no you didn't arrive late... thanks for your encouragement am grateful.


  6. So many times I have visited your blog and wondered about you... who you are, what is your culture like? Were you a Christian from childhood, or did you accept the Lord later in your life? What part of Africa do you live in? What is it like there? The only thing I have ever heard about evangelism in the nations of Africa are the many missionaries who go there and share the gospel.

    I know I have told you this before, that when I found your blog a year ago, I was just then finding my way back to the Lord. I had gone through 14 months of being angry with him over how my life had turned out. Your "Voice" and the things you posted were the first encounter I had with Christianity while coming out of that dark period in my life. Yours was a gentle guiding hand lifting me up out of the "pit", whether you knew it or not.

    I will read your testimony later on today. I must get to church now, they are serving donuts this morning and I'm bringing the milk :-)

    God bless you, my sister in the Lord whom I'll meet in heaven someday.

  7. Haa Tkwi, Well now you know am human... lol, Well I think you should take time to study AFrica and you will see that waht you know about Christianity is so little and you need to know more.

    Widen you research and you would be pleasantly surprised.
    Godbless you and hope we meet someday.

  8. "God doesn't call the equipped, He equips the called." Praise the Lord!!! God bless!!!
