Welcome to our Autumn Issue in our Easter Season.
A Season where Jesus changed everything as it was known. He Shifted us from being of this world to being of the Kingdom. We shifted from being sinners to being Forgiven. Shifted non-believers to Believers. Shifted us from death to Eternal Life. He Shifted from walking the earth to being seated on the Right Hand of the Father in Heaven. In other words, this is the season of change so it is fitting to theme this issue The Shift Issue.
My prayer is for a Shift for you mentally, emotionally and Spiritually as you flip through the pages. We offer you a buffet of business, career, personal and Spiritual inspiration and enlightenment.
I’m delighted and humbled to have my friend and Praying Partner, Bongiwe Zwane, on this cover. It has been a long time coming but as with everything God led, this is the perfect time and season for us to be Ministered to by her life’s journey and Testimony.
Kgomotso’s vulnerability and truth on page 28 moves my heart in an unexpected way as she shares her heart on what it means to mother children with special needs, Autism in her case. May this piece shift your mind and change our behaviour and attitude to things we do not understand or have full details on.
And then there’s Ausi Nthabiseng on page 23, she says ‘Shift from pain, overcome and maintain a life of joy’. She is supported by Coach Matjatji with advice on Shaking off Self Limitation on page 32.
There is much more to mention like the beauty of collaboration demonstrated by Karien Hunter and her
ACM Hunter Inc. team on page 12.
I cannot end my greeting without celebrating the mgiRas team’s milestone led by a familiar face and a sister in our community – CEO Patricia Stocks and partner Jerome Andrews. They have shifted their South African Audit Firm to a Global Audit firm. Be inspired by their journey on page 14.
I thank our Shift Issue partners featured on the contents page. arise Magazine issue is a more challenging achievement without you. Your business investment is also a Kingdom investment. Be Blessed.
May the contents of this issue highlight God’s amazing power and Love to you. May it Shift whatever needs to be Shifted in your life towards a more peaceful and fulfilling Faith filled life you yearn for. May it bring you Newness, Hope and Courage: Isaiah 43:18-19.
From God my Daddy to you through me – Shift and Stay Blessed.
