I have published a thesis for my masters degree as well as academic papers. All fade in significance compared to the publication of this article. It is a culmination and a continuation of a work that has been nearly a decade in the making.
The Manifestation of a Decade Old Dream
In one of my journal entries in 2006, I wrote down that I wanted to one day be able to share the spiritual insights that God gave me during my devotions in a printed publication. From that day I started a compilation of those spiritual insights in my hard copy journals. I have kept the journals over the years. Later on the writings were done on my laptop. Today one of them is a published work. This goes to show the power of writing down one’s dreams.
Some of my literary works in 2010 were published in a blog that I started and abandoned. I was still figuring out what the thrust of my online presence was to be. It was in 2012 that I finally purchased a domain that would become this blog/website that I still have today.
Content emphasis has varied. I have been invited by several individuals to contribute to their blogs with a thrust towards purely business coaching. I did that for a while but fell of the bandwagon along the way. Somehow deep inside me, I knew that my calling was in the area of Christ centered writing. I shared my thoughts and insights on various subjects, business included. My objective has been to mold thinking that infuses Christ into all areas of life for my readers and subscribers on this blog.
How A Way To be Print Published was Opened
This caught the attention of a certain young man called Victor Nkomo who was following my Facebook posts. He also happened to be the founding publisher of the magazine Salvation. He asked me to contribute an article on the story of my life. The article that I had earmarked was part of a work that is in the pipeline for publication during the course of this year. My editor objected to me sharing that before being published.
We then agreed for me to contribute a regular devotional article in the magazine instead. Today I share with you the first of those devotional articles extracted from my prayer journals that I have been writing over the years. It is an honor and a privilege for me to be a part of this noble publication. I believe it is inspired by the Holy Spirit for the winning of souls into God’s Kingdom.
How It All Ties In
Being a home business owner, I use the internet to grow my business. I have always wanted to be a visible and audible advocate for a rounded approach to business. I do not want to teach business principles in isolation from my Christian beliefs. I want to infuse the two in a bid to showcase and inspire a rounded and spiritually focused business person. I envision a business owner who exercises Godly principles at home, at church and in the market place.
Once the printed version of this issue is out, I will let you all know. I will offer a limited number of autographed printed copies to some of my subscribers here. Look out for that announcement over the next couple of days. In the meantime, you can access the online PDF version of the May/June 2016 issue of Salvation Magazine. You can then read my article from “The Heart Intelligence Corner” on Page 9.
