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. Surely, it…

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…

Races, Flights and Runners

We are in that season when those who run looks back at where they’re coming from; some to see their beginning no more, others to see what/who pursues them. 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…

Credentials and Credibility

Sometime ago, in the British Empire, just as war was breaking out with the Germans, the second son of King George V, the Duke of York, found himself on the throne that was abdicated by his elder brother as King George VI and his major challenge was that he stutters when he speaks. It is…

Outcomes

The ultimate end of all endeavour is not necessarily the sum of inputs; time and chance happen to all.   Each one would have the privilege of time, an irreplaceable gift of God; and the blessing of chance, that significant moment when ‘choice’ would determine all . . .   What are you doing with…

Where I Stand . . .

From where I stand, I see so much I can not utter with words; but I take solace in the fact that my heart is instructed, towards righteousness, by the things I see . . . good or bad.   When I share what I see with anyone, it would be because I consider such…
