Last week DOVE Kenya held our annual convention, an event that involves a lot of planning and prayer. It is a time we always look forward to. But guess what – on the first day we were unceremoniously absent!
Why? It is a long story that boils down to multiple car problems and false promises, but the lessons to be learned might have been missed if we had been at the convention as planned. Lesson number one: I am / we are not indispensable. (Daaaaaa!!) A DOVE conference can go on very well without me (us). Secondly, we work with amazing people who are highly capable, anointed, full of grace, flexible and resourceful.
Despite the initial frustrations, the conference in both locations (Kisumu and Nairobi), was really great. The theme was “How long will you waver between two opinions?” Good question! In our family, I am the one who likes to consider all options, “try on” different ideas, and go back and forth when making a decision. My husband often says that I have a clean mind because of changing it so often!
But being double-minded is decried in scripture. Yet in so many areas of life we seem to have a foot in two worlds. The Kingdom of God, where we as the church are supposed to be ruling and reigning over the world systems, does not allow for dual citizenship! We really need to decide where we belong.
