Be of Good Courage!

I woke up this morning with so heavy a burden on my heart. As I meditate on the word of God, these two gave me context and perspective; even in present troubles. 1. Psalms 27:1‭-‬14 2. A message from Bishop T.D.Jakes. https://youtu.be/1EWU_ImYFh0 These are the wordings of the Scriptures: “The Lord is my light and…

Faith for Works

I live in a row of flats that necessitate some sort of shared facilities; wherein, something as simple as a fault in the water pumping system requires a meeting of many tenants to resolve. It is amazing how many back and forth is necessary before simple things get resolved. Among us are some, who don’t…

Seasons

There comes a time in life when time happens to us all; when we all will run out of ‘juices’ not because we are dry(far from it), but because time has taken away the support structure that we once had. For some that structure is family; for some, it is friends; for some, it is…

The Flaw in Expediency

None of them went to wake the dead for instructions…the same Holy Spirit that was on their leader was who came on them (for some in double portion). They did greater…

“I’m not you”

The beauty of a new life,The blessings of fresh opportunitiesThe jinx of fresh perspectivesThe judgment of those who stumbled. It says: ” I’m not you”“I think and act differently”“I’ll walk without stumbling because I know better”“I am me, not you!” Until avoidable tragedy strikes,And history repeats itself…Until posterity is damaged,And precious time is wasted. If…

Efforts and Time

In the core of every person are certain elements that are never manifested until their set time. When the set time has come, a manifestation of unexplainable circumstances would begin and this is when most people becomes troubled when they should be thrilled and excited. Except you prefer to live a false life, you will…

Is there the Authentic Design for Sex and Love?

Recently, I stumbled on a Netflix series of documentaries by an international journalist on sex and love around the world. I decided to download the episodes and listen, beginning from my continent – Africa. The things I heard are very disturbing. I literally could no longer follow the series with my eyes open. . .what…

A Delicate Mix

A few days ago, I went to the local market and stopped at a stall to buy Ginger and Garlic (it has become a necessary drink, since the beginning of COVID pandemic). The woman selling these roots, seeing that I have made my purchase already asked that I should add Tumeric roots as well; according…
