From the high lands of Mountain Elgon to the flat lands, came Dad to the city from a humble background. We never had much but he offered us his rich spirit. I never chanced to meet my mom, but I know she was a goddess because she gave birth to me on the 7th November 1990 early morning. As a kid, it never crossed my mind that I had to hustle just to make it through. Simply because my dad had my back; but the world was not up for grabs, especially when the pressures kicked in. Facing life’s giants at an early stage of my life, mountains of obstacles leaving me to think I was under attack. Seeking an anchor for my soul, a believer in my dreams, a friend for my strength, a confidant for my fears and strong hold for the unknown; trial and error became my new normal. Experience became my toughest teacher, examiner and discipliner. But I have come out stronger, pruned even though my wounds are yet to fully heal.
Today as life goes on, I have come to learn more and more about responsibility. There are a lot of mistakes I have made. And I understand that there is a big problem, am not too blind not to see the pain kept in your heart. I have hurt and disappointed many along the years. But with humility, to everyone I hurt along the way; emotionally, financially, socially, with power, neglect or in any way, Am Sorry. For all the things I put you through, all the pain I caused you, am truly sorry. Am sorry for the things I did not say or do. The help I did not give. The support I did not offer and much more. Being a young man trying to grow and develop is no excuse for what I did. I take responsibility and say please forgive me. I am older now, wiser and more responsible, focused and purpose driven with one dream, to make a world a better place through providing leadership. No matter what small way God gives me, be it in your life or in others I will serve better than in my past years.
My journey from the start has been a hustle but I succeeded to a certain point. I still got a long way to go. No matter how many times I have fallen before, am still going, I have been afraid before, but kept going. I have been terrified but am still going, I did not know what I was doing before but I still progressed. I have been fighting scared but God did not let my enemies know. My enemies spoke about me, but sometimes what they said about me was greater than what I felt about myself. I am STARTING AGAIN, fresh and more disciplined. The feeling of loss I have, will fade for time heals all wounds I believe.
Finally, some words of wisdom that God has blessed me with for my new season. While choosing people in your life be keen to observe: Any man or woman that has his or her whole vision in their own need and the only thing they can see is what they can get out of it, leave them alone, you cannot walk with them. It means their need is more important than their calling, they are dangerous, they will betray you. Get people who can do more than one thing at the same time, focused to do what they got to do and still not forget their calling and cannot be disrupted. I have one in my life and I have been blessed by them. I have learnt that God uses few people to bless you, small things to lift you. Learn to always get people who can get down, humble themselves. Not people who are too high or too arrogant, but those who are submitted and ready to serve. The anointing that is on your life God will use to do more with less; it will pave way for you. Thank you all for your support, prayers, and sticking with me through thick and thin. As we move forward, lets conquer the world.
