Desires, Dreams and Destinies

First written in 2018 Over the last 30 years I have carried in my heart a dream; just one dream: to see the glory of the LORD revealed in the earth. I know that may sound like a position that makes me sound spiritual, but I am already a spirit being, so I do not…

Switching Sides…

Sometime ago, I saw a movie titled “Best of Enemies.” It is the story of the friendship between a black woman, who was a community organizer for black people and a white man, who was the leader of anti-black racist group in a community called Durham at that time. While watching, I saw depth of…

Light of Life

What will you do to change your experiences in life?Where are the limits of what you can do for yourself without needing external help? Certainly, change is a product of a creative process, if you do not create a new experience, nothing will change. Even if you have to begin it by intercession, you will…

Contradictions.

Can you separate wisdom from the muchness of words that comes from a talkative? When the critic, whose opinion of you is inaccurate, draws inferences from weaknesses you exhibit, what will your response be? The delicate mix of virtue and vileness sometimes wear the most resilient out. While one carefully sieves through the muchness of…

Boundaries

It is often said that most people listens to respond, not to understand what is being said; even speakers speak to be heard, not to seek clarity from engaging the audience, most of the times. Had each person seen the opportunity to listen and speak as one to attain a deeper depth of understanding, we…

It can be so pervasive in our societies that an inquiry into the degree of entrenchment is wasteful. Even in the Church, we are humility-challenged. From the tycoon-prophet to the sashed-usher, we wear that ubiquitous “do-you-know-me” disposition,…

Of Growth and Boundaries

There is something amazing about PHYSICAL growth: as beautiful and necessary as it may be, beyond a set limit, it would be a disaster – actually a malignancy! Have you ever imagined what we would look like if we don’t stop growing physically after a particular stage in life? Many of us would be giants…

Impossible Love

Often times, we have family conversation, in our home. I am growing deeply fond of it because it seems to bring more clarity to pressing life matters we may not be giving deliberate  attention to at the moment. Yesterday was one of those conversations, and here is one  of them, I thought it may be…
