Spiritual Intelligence: Quo Vadis

Quo Vadis is a sentence in Latin which means, Where are you going in English.

For the past six months I have been writing and sharing updates of my spiritual journey via these daily thoughts with you. This mustard seed faith, expressed through my obedience just to write and share has opened the door to various other projects. The first being the publishing of my first book; a small collection of those early thoughts, entitled Echoes of Mercy, Whispers of Love. I can hear you saying in your heart:

Where are you going?

Well, now that my first book is out on sale, I will focus my time and efforts on marketing and promotion, with a view that it serves it’s God ordained purpose as a vision enabler. As a result of this and other commitments, I will not be writing and sharing any new materials daily until I feel a release to do so from The Lord.

My old posts will be shared via my social media contacts daily, based on topics or subjects inspired by the Holy Spirit. Also, I will create a search field on the site to allow users access topics using keywords like faith, crisis, pain, patience etc., this is the next phase and I believe we have enough content to keep us steady through our walk of faith. By the way, this idea was inspired by a friend’s request for something from me to a friend who had lost a close relative. In the midst of life’s high impact activities, I suddenly realised that these thoughts were actually designed to be; timeless and relevant God inspired words. So I searched through, found one that was fit for purpose, and sent across accordingly! In the words of prophet Isaiah:

A word in season for those that are weary

For those that are not on my social media contacts, hopefully you will be able to do the same daily, and share with friends and the wider public.

I would like to seize this opportunity to thank you all for your support and encouragement, I am really trying hard not to yield to the temptation to start mentioning names, lest I get into the trouble by forgetting anyone!

In the meantime, please continue with your support by sharing, promoting, and writing your reviews and recommendations on all the online outlets about Echoes of Mercy, Whispers of Love. Also, our campaign on indiegogo is still on, please make a donation if you haven’t done so already, and share with everyone. Coincidentally, I’ve hit five hundred likes with this post, a nice milestone for the start of the next phase.

And you my dear friends, in the words of Paul:

Do not be weary in doing good, for in due season you will reap if you do not give up

Spiritual Intelligence: Echoes Of Mercy, Whispers Of Love

The lyrics for Blessed Assurance were written in 1873 by gifted and passionate hymn writer named Fanny J. Crosby. Even though she was physically blind, her vision of the kingdom remained unhindered. The music was written and composed by her friend Phoebe P. Knapp in the same year.

The words envisions the faithfulness of our God, the beauty and splendour of His coming kingdom, and our place in His glorious reign. Furthermore, the fact that the writer was blind adds to the potency of lines like;

vision of rapture now burst on my sight

watching and waiting looking above

… Captivating. Fanny was obviously looking through spiritual lenses, hence she could capture these prophecies in such words.

This hymn remains relevant through the ages because it gives worshippers vision, faith and hope in-spite of all the challenges that life throws at them. It provides spiritual shock absorbers through the good, bad and ugly seasons of life, so we can feel the warm embrace of His love through the Echoes Of Mercy, And Whispers Of Love we feast upon as we study from the Holy Writ.

One of My Mum’s favourite hymns!
