WOW, I can't believe it...this is actually my first blog ever. I had to name my blog site "The Mind Of Nyerere" because I know how random of a person I can be. Therefore, on any given moment, I have something completely different to say than what I said the previous day or the previous week. YES people, I am that random. But whether I am random or not, God has been so good to me, I can't explain... The ways in which God works his mysterious ways continues to amaze me each day.

One thing that I do know is that God is powerful and almighty, but how does one explain his work in just a few sentences? Well, first you have to witness his work to testify. I still can't explain how I was literally homeless just a few days ago, and my best friend's parents decided that they would take me in for the summer. I can't explain how I met a contact in North Carolina who is a manager of a store. I've been looking and slaving just to find a job in this market, and here...out of nowhere pops up a manager of a Wal-Mart. Now, don't get me wrong. My credentials possess too much experience for a typical Wal-Mart position, but in times of desperate need, I cannot afford to be picky. I can't explain how I accidentally left my medication in Maryland, but when I came here to pick it up there was also a check in the mail from the state government, one that I wasn't expecting. THE BRIGHTEST LIGHT COMES IN THE DARKEST NIGHT. God knew months in advance that I was going to need this check to survive this summer.

I have been through some intense emotional pain from adolescence till recently. These sorrows make you want to give up on life. This "great" country, this land of "liberty and justice" that I currently reside in, this land of "equal opportunities" surely smacked me across my face more than once. But in the midst of all this, I realized that this world is not of fairness. We humans are of sin, our flesh is of sin. We don't fight against flesh, but we fight against evil. I realized that it is not people that I should have anger and hate towards, but it is Satan and his control over our human flesh.

I do believe that these are the end times, as the Revelations have predicted. I see very clearly what is happening now in our world as depicted in Revelations. God says to forgive others so that you may also be forgiven. God also says to love one another, because LOVE covers a multitude of sin. God has blessed me with a supernatural family like no other; a family of Believers in Christ. I realize now that I had to suffer and endure so much to be the person I am today. And still, I have a long way to go in my growth. God is real. A year ago, I was very skeptical of this God, but my best friend/brother has shown me that God is real and GOD DOES CARE!

One day, I will be successful to the point that I won't remember how I got there, and the same goes for my brother Edmund. But, when I get there I will testify of the supernatural ways of my heavenly father and I will attribute all my success to him.

One day....


  1. Dear MR. NYERERE,

    I pray that you, Edmund, and me become all become that successful.
