Life Update: The Hand that Wounds, is the Same Hand that Restores 

In October of 2020, eight months after Mo’ died, I officially began a relationship with Mumbi. I knew her from my time as a pastor at Mamlaka Hill Chapel. She’s never been married before.

We are both as surprised as you might be at this turn of events because neither of us expected it. I wasn’t looking to date at that time, and there wasn’t any pressure in my personal and family life that was bearing upon me to move in that direction.

Blog 5: I am Content with Suffering 

The word Paul uses for “content” in this verse is the exact same word that is used in the three gospels when Jesus comes up out of the waters at His baptism and the voice of the Father is heard from heaven saying:
“This is my beloved son, with whom I am well pleased.”

In fact, verse 10 of 2 Corinthians is the only place in the New Testament where this word is translated as “content.”

More than half of the 21 instances where the word is used are translated as being “pleased.”

Paul doesn’t just accept his sufferings, he’s pleased with them. He takes pleasure in them.
