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…

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

A couple of days ago, I stumbled on a woman with two children, frantically searching a waste dump for food for her children. The part that hurt me deepest was that this waste dump is nested in the neighbourhood of the affluent. In the midst of the affluence, she had no one to look upon…

Faith-Full

I sing of the faithfulness of God forever,My mouth proclaims His mercies forever more;He has looked upon His own with mercy and grace,He has granted Himself as inheritance to those who stay with Him… The wicked search for peace and could not find it,But the LORD is the Place of refuge for His elect;The righteous…

A Choice That Will Not Disappoint

Walking with the LORD, who lives in heaven, whose footstool is the earth, is an almost inconceivable idea . . . but that is the whole idea behind God’s mysteries [hidden secrets]. He is God; big enough to inhabit heaven and earth at the same time; and small enough to inhabit the hearts of men…

Help!

It will amaze you that the most considerate people are those you may consider less than you are;On the contrary, they are not as inconsiderate as you may think.Oftentimes, you would find that something in those looked up to looks down on those who look up to them . . .But for this, you would…

The Fragrance of Hope

A lesson I have learnt in my entire life,Over and over again,The inherent power in a ray of hope;Is more potent than a million promises when they fail. A word in season,A message of succor just before despair,A song for life just when all is about to go darkThe chivalry of help just in time….

The Price of a Broken Heart

Therefore, if you hope for something or someone, don’t be disappointed if you don’t get what you hoped for, the power to make it happen is not within your control. Keep faith, search diligently next time before reposing confidence in someone or something from which you have no promise. If you are denied what you are promised, seeking retribution or forgiving the debt are within your powers; I recommend the latter because the cost of the former will dig deep into your scarce resources of time, money and people.

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…

Dire Dreams

For a bit of perspective I have been in the business of helping people bring their ideas to life for about 22years. In these years, one thing has been so recurring, for me, to the point of despair. Each time I encounter one, I literally shut down. I have found too many people unable to…
