Life Principles from Pomelo (Shaddock)

A few weeks ago, I went on a trip to a new site, with a Professor, to one of Ibadan’s satellite towns called Ogunmakin, along Lagos-Ibadan expressway in Nigeria. When we finished what we had to do there, our host was very magnanimous to give us some of the fruits from his orchard; in particular,…

Christian Marriages

The problem with Christian marriages, probably the reason they are failing at such alarming rates, is that the focus has shifted and continues to shift from God and His purpose to the personality of the spouses… When their personal needs becomes a demand, not a response outflowing from understanding and submission to God, the marriage…

Winning Wars

It is amazing how much we can conquer if we stay on…However, most of the times, the major challenge is why we stayed on and for whom. If the focus is self, we’ll lose it all. For self ends with the person and there is something about self that excludes others irreparably. When we are…

Defeat

If you have never failed, there is a certain depth of pain you cannot understand, The pain that comes from having done all, yet faced with the bluntness of nothing; When defeat comes like a flood and it’s consequences shines brightly, What you do next is what matters more than the defeat itself.

The Search for Happiness

I recently watched a video clip from Goalcast, an inspirational word from a lady who sought happiness by putting behind the beauty she once had because in all of the splendour she had, she could not find happiness. It got me thinking about many things, chief of which is our definition of happiness. What is…

That moment when the runner stops running is the most difficult one…for every pain and trouble once conquered would come to check again if they can…

Reactionary Revelations

When someone is in distress, those who care about them, genuinely or otherwise would try to do something about it. When the challenge is spiritual, they would rise to pray and prophecy, according to the word of God. It does not necessarily mean by the Word of the LORD, for that is the WORD Himself….

That Moment

The moment when God would show up would be the unexpected one…it would be with dynamics you are already used to but you may have become too familiar with them. It is that moment when simple obedience would work like magic and heaven would kiss the earth. Faith in that moment would not be out…

Uncomfortably Different

I watched a movie titled #TheAccountant in which the father of an autistic child told him the he is different and that more or less, with time, people would become terrified with someone different. The saying is true… What is also true is that being uncommonly different seems intolerable to most people these days…soon they…

Of Design and Alternatives

In recent times, my heart has been drawn to events that are happening locally and internationally; mostly reflective of the choices we make as individuals and as communities and here are few of my thoughts: 1.  When men try to replace God’s design with their well-thought-out alternatives, unrighteousness and injustice become the only way to…
