We Love It Ready . . .

I can relate with how leaders with real value feel, when asked to provide what people don’t really deserve for them – even things that those seeking it are not willing to pay a price for. It is a classic case of people demonizing others for insisting on process instead of interventions. I have a…

Now!

What do you do when what bothers you is not about you, but others; and those concerned do not care? It happened to Christ, He wept on Jerusalem but there was nothing else He could do. He went on to other places and greater works were done there. This generation despises their God-ordained helps; they…

Learning to Love

I am learning to listen as I love,For love without listening ears is blind.It is capable of destroying something beautiful, even with the right intention,I reckon that true love gives and gives until there is nothing else left to give. I have indeed received mercies from the LORD,This is why I am naturally disposed to…

Pondering Pathways and Patterns

For a couple of days now, I have been deeply in thoughts about what I see daily . . . Prior to now, I contemplate them for a while and just put them aside to focus on my own journey; after all, my account to God must not be short, on the account of being…

Unknown and Uncertain

The most significant part of my life journey is defined by two major factors – the unknown and the uncertain. They are constants. Sometimes they are so scary, I am literarily paralyzed on all fronts, wondering how to proceed; mostly so, until God shows up to lead me forward. Believe me, ‘forward’ do not always…

Who is Afraid of Judgment?

“It is actually reported [everywhere] that there is sexual immorality among you, a kind of immorality that is condemned even among the [unbelieving] Gentiles: that someone has [an intimate relationship with] his father’s wife [minors, siblings, family members, etc.]. And you are proud and arrogant! You should have mourned in shame so that the man…

Brutal Truth About Trauma

There are certain demographics of people who may never know the LORD unless God permits a degree of trauma to happen to them. They are: 1. Knowledgeable and eloquent people, who cannot be reasoned with. It doesn’t matter what is said to them, they have their own perspective that cannot be reviewed in the light…

BOOK REVIEW: If All Is Well, Why Am I like This?

I started writing this book in 2007 during my Service year in Adamawa. I have been confronted with many challenges of life and it seemed like there was no single way out of them all. Some had succeeded following certain pathways; others followed after them and failed woefully. It didn’t make sense, especially because this…

Setting a Balance

Last week, I was asked to share a few words with a vibrant group of young people about balance. For them, it is about their most important work at the moment (their study) and their spiritual life. Like them, most people have been plagued by the compartmentalization of their lives, so much that a part…

Who We Really Are . . .

1. Once in a while I scroll through my Twitter timeline, and I am amazed at the way most people in there think. It seems most people are only sensible and coherent when there is something valuable at stake. Majority of folks are really rotten from within. 2. Now, I’m persuaded that most people are…
