Recharge

Recharge: The word is very common for many people that use a cell, phone because one way or the other the battery of the phone requires the restoration of the power supply. The Word recharge could mean among other things, “Revive or renew”

My soul rejoices even in the middle of so many world troubles such as diseases of many kind, being reminded to thank God all the time because He has given us both hidden and open blessings. Our lives today can be likened to the children of Israel in the Book of Deuteronomy 8:2-5 and v 15-16. In many cases we see issues or problems as some curses upon our lives. God reminded the children of Israel how much He loved them and cared for them and He cares for us even now.

Our story title brings us to appreciate the good work that is being done at the Mwembezhi Lutheran Mission Rural Health Center in Shibuyunji Zambia. The “recharge” has brought about fresh look for the clinic building, it has given hope to so many people, going by the good comments from staff, contractors that we hear from the general members of the communities. The clinic building is be recharged. This work is the answer the Lord has given the people of Zambia, all stakeholders, CAMM, individuals in the USA, members of staff at the clinic have played a role to recharge the clinic building. Much work, will be expected by the staff at the center to maintain and cherish the building and the surrounding area so that sick people get to be healed and receive comfort from the Lord our God before being attended to by the medical personal.

It is important in this journey of life to take time and reflect as Christians and possibly recharge our Christian life and learn to bless others just like we have been blessed ourselves. The Israelites were reminded what to do when they enter the Promised Land (Deuteronomy 26:1- 10). I honestly enjoy this scripture in Psalm 85:1- 13 especially vs 6.

In conclusion, the calling we have received is tough, but God knows why He has particular calls for us, in fact we have done nothing that can repay the good things God has done for us in this life, therefore let us use to the best our abilities all that he has entrusted us with, Just like 1 Peter 4: 10 “Each of you should use whatever gift you received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. God is willing to give us a new start regardless of how much we think we have sinned against Him. God’s work for His children was prepared for all Christians before they were called. Ephesian 2:10.

Thank God that he has given us an opportunity to live in this day, we can try and look through life and recharge, just as the clinic has been recharged.
