Petitions

Recently, I was in a court room again; and this time, my observations pricked my heart. See, if you are the one petitioning God, the righteous Judge, for a thing or on a matter, you will have stand the longest before him in prayers. There is no other way around this. Just as in this…

Of Jews and Gentiles

Have you ever wondered why, even in the New Testament, after the sacrifice of Christ, the difference between the Jews and the Gentiles were not scrapped?

A Credible Word

A few days ago, my brother and friend Bashiru Oyahkilome Adamu posted an endorsement on his page about me and many other and I was screaming to myself saying: “This man wants to put me in trouble” (good trouble, of course)… Next I know, I started getting all sorts of friendship request from people I…

Stories and Truth

There is this elderly woman I am always cautioning not to insert herself in every matter that is being discussed. It just sounds somehow that it is hard to have a discussion with people these days without a reference to their own life and person… Recently, I found myself evaluating certain things and unconsciously, I…

Shrouded Depths

There is a very hidden place in the hearts of men, only real experiences can reveal what is there. Until you permit those experiences to take place, however unsettled you are with them, you may never know these depths of people you associate with. In present world, what is said is no longer enough to…
