I'm not saying it's a Nigerian thing but has it happened that when a stranger touches you, the first instinct is to plead the blood of Jesus and start rebuking every curse from your life. Or maybe it's just me or maybe you see it as being too religious. And you're right. Cause the truth … Continue reading Contact-phobia
I recently attended a barbecue (bbq) party at my friend’s house and it was a wonderful experience. About a week later an illustration was revealed to me while praying. 2 Timothy 1:6- For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of … Continue reading Barbecue Talent
It’s been a minute and I have missed you dearly.
It’s time to share a wonderful story I read on a blog my loved one shared with me. For me, it tells of how much God loves us and how our relationship with him should be.
I remembered how on one of my Whatsapp group chats a friend made a comment. He said “Many of us put our expectation within our means, that is not faith. Many ask God for puff-puff, chin-chin, sweet and yoghurt. What about asking God to make you the World Richest because we need cash for mission works?” Another friend of mine replied by saying that God cares about the ‘small stuff’ in our lives as much as the big stuff.
Both statements are very true. But, in reading this message I’ve come to understand that God doesn’t just want to bless us so that we can be satisfied. He wants to bless us so that we can be a blessing. Asking for the big stuff shows our mentality beyond ‘self’ and shows our desire to be used by God. In the big things we ask for, most definitely the small things will be taken care off and often will have to be addressed first before the ‘big things’ can manifest.
Enjoy the wonderful lessons from this story.
Once upon a time, a little boy named Igbagbo walked down a street called Aye. On that street, he met a kind old lady called Ara. She gave him a piece of candy. It was the milkiest ball of chocolate he had ever seen, covered in golden sugar flakes that made Igbagbo’s mouth water.
Excited, Igbagbo accepted Ara’s candy. As quickly as he ate it, he realized that the candy was awefully bitter. It made no sense! He wanted to protest but Ara had disappeared.
Dejected, Igbagbo abandoned his journey and headed back home. Somewhere along the way, he met another old lady called Iyanu. She showed him her candy. Afraid of being deceived again, Igbagbo rejected it. Besides, her candy looked mundane, there was no way it could have been sweet.
Iyanu had known that Igbagbo would reject her candy. So, she asked him, “Would you trust my candy if I…

Happy New Month my Family. It's been absolutely amazing so far and the second half of the year has begun. Thumping at my heart for weeks now has been the passage "Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom." The New Living Translation (NLT) puts it this way "Teach … Continue reading Heart unto Wisdom

Hello Everyone Honestly, I don’t know why I didn’t think about this initially. I had something on my mind to write about for two weeks and I didn’t know how to put it down. Then it dawned on me that I haven’t done an audio message in a while. This audio message is basically about … Continue reading Burning Out

I wrote these words on the first of April as I reflected on my attitude towards payback. I identified it as a syndrome because a syndrome is a condition characterized by a set of associated or concurrent symptoms. Often times I have the urge to hold on to the wrong that others have done to … Continue reading The Payback Syndrome
They had spent the past five years of their lives planning ahead from the day they would officially say I do. They had agreed on everything: what deco was needed in the house, who will do what, who was welcome to stay with them and for how long, how many children they would have, how … Continue reading Ada’s Dilemma
