Conversation with Flared Emotions

Yesterday, I had a very heated conversation with some friends in one of the places where I work, bordering on the present challenges going on in Nigeria. More than ever before, it is clearer to me why God’s intervention in Nigeria is inevitable. Without God, there is no hope! Generally speaking, I have seen young…

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…

Beyond the Door

Antidote to Worry

Why do we worry? Is there a psychological explanation to anxiety so much so that generally, people seem unable to control it? Many are down with cardiac issues, blood pressure challenges and even panic attacks, especially with present realities that are manifesting. Why do you worry? I was having a conversation with a friend of…

God Speaks in Diverse Ways, Mostly in Those You Do Not Like

If there is anything I have heard people say more often than any other, it is that they wish to know the mind of God concerning many things. Many people have become preys in search for what God is saying, many others have become merchants of falsehood and sensual words, spoken as God’s heart. First…
