Distractions

The real enemy of most pursuits is distraction. Eternal matters would distract you from temporal ones and vice versa. Therefore, those who wield power are those who have mastered the art of distracting others and disrupting status quo. So, distracting a life that is heading to destruction by the bright possibilities of a fulfilling life…

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,…

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…

Flash Contemplations 1

There come that season in every man’s life, wherein he seeks a shoulder to cry on . . . of joy or sorrow and it is not that of the progenitor or of the one who nurtured him. It would be that of a woman, whose triumph is not the abundance of her accomplishment of…

Evasive Peace

For most people, knowing what to say is a really difficult thing. This does not in anyway present quiet people, who hardly express themselves.

He started with the story of his grandmother, who happened to be divinely gifted by the LORD to preach so well that,…

2017 in Review – Realities Part 3

This would be my first time to publicly publish my review of a year. I realized it is expedient to make an exception this year because of what I am about to share. This year has indeed been eventful; most importantly, I have learned so many new lessons; some the hard way. It started out…

Continuing from the first part of this piece, here is the second part. In Mark 8 : 27–33, There was an incident between Jesus and His disciples. He asked them certain questions and their responses provoked an irrational reaction from Christ . . . “Now Jesus and His disciples went out to the towns of…

Rays of Hope – Realities Part 1.

This blog post has been a long time coming. I guess I have finally summoned the inner strength to write it and this is going to be so long. So, I guess I would just break them into different parts to make reading easier. To those who know me personally, these two things would come…

Modest Matrimony

I was privileged to attend a marriage ceremony yesterday, at Legon Interdenominational Church, University of Ghana. It was such an eye-opening event for me. 1. I have only spent two minutes on my seat before I could clearly see that this new couple were genuinely in love with each other. They smiled at each other…
