Of Faith and Fears

I have wondered what it means to be faithful;The meaning of this seems to elude me each time I reach out to understand it deeper than the surface.Still, despite all the complexities around the definition of this thing,This one is crystal clear – faithfulness is an offshoot of faith. When there is faith for the…

Reality Check

“The faithful man has perished from the earth, and there is no one upright among men. They all lie in wait for blood; every man hunts his brother with a net. That they may successfully do evil with both hands — the prince asks for gifts, the judge seeks a bribe, and the great man…

What do you see?

The faculty of sight is a very vital one because before every other more detailed faculties can process a thing, the eyes would have done preliminary examination to it. However, what is seen is hardly dependent on the eyes itself; instead, it is determined by the heart. In essence, the heart sees before the eyes…

Efforts Validates.

Nothing is what it seems. The more obvious things are, the less likely it is what it seems. It is in the nature of treasures that they have to be sought out…same for truth as a treasure, you have to dig for it. When you are looking for someone or something valuable, you should not…

Needless Worries

Most of your fears will never come through; infact, your fear would do the real damage, not what you fear. When I was much younger, I worried about a lot of things. I had known what being hungry meant; so, it was natural for me to panic about where my next meal would come from….

Exploring ‘everything’ and ‘everyone’ comes effortlessly by default. If there is no focus, life will be somewhat colorful, yet without impactful…being focused…

Skeptics and the Shifts

I was in church for the first time in a very long time since COVID happened. Evidently, so much is never going to be the same again. I know it is human to easily forget our traumas and return to life, like nothing really happened but it seems we are unaware that this particular trauma…
