Wise Responses

Culture is how we live. It is a choice we are empowered to make; each one having the right to make that choice. Still, it doesn’t seem like the choices are there anymore; in reality, society makes these decisions for us all by default. When you see anyone doing all to exercise his or her…

Reflections on What Matters.

It has been a while since I wrote on this platform. I have been so busy lately that writing seems to be happening in my heart more than with my hands . . . The good news is that I have so much to share with you, especially in this yuletide season. Yesterday, I took…

The End is Known

What was the first thing on your mind this morning as you woke up from sleep? Is it fear or faith, is it despair or hope, is it shame or fame? is it gold or God? Whatever it is that is uppermost on your mind, one thing is sure: you cannot change anything by your…

Unlikely Leading

If you have ever had your life well-planned out and it became disrupted without notice, you will agree with me that so much is beyond the realm of planning. Indeed, nothing trumps being led by the LORD. However, being led by the LORD is not an immunity from bad things happening to those that are…

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….

It is possible to change appearance, style, outlook, perception and responses; but who you really are will not change until something really drastic happens that brings…

Defaults and Designs

For over 39 years I have enjoyed divine health from God that the last time I was in a hospital for anything major was 1986, then 1993 when I was hit by a car on my day of fast. Not one time had the things God put in my body given me a reason to…

Already Done

Walking an unknown pathway is not strange, every known one was once an unknown pathway. Still, ‘directional signages’ are helpful in making smart choices; though the edge of adventure may be far removed. So, what will it be?A journey or an adventure? Your choices will not matter in the end; believe me, you will soon…

Interlude

It is 10 years today that I have been blogging on http://www.AkinWaleEkunDayo.com I have been relatively quiet these days. A friend asked me, few days back, why haven’t I been blogging much lately. My response was simple – “I write when I have something to say.” Have I become so bereft of words that I…
