This is JEREMIAH!

This is JEREMIAH. I met with him yesterday in one of the outreach location I was privileged to participate in. He is such a brilliant young man; though he lives in a very challenging physical, emotional and spiritual environment. He carries such light and love of God in his heart like none of these challenges…

DAY TWENTY-SEVEN: Corrupted and Corrected Apostleship

When Jesus was leaving, He handed over to the Apostles to continue what He begun with them. The result of that is the Church – the Church of Christ. If we look at the Church today and cannot see the Christ of the Church, something has indeed gone wrong. All that negates the gospel that…

DAY NINE: Minding the Gap

Between the seen and the unseen, the known and the unknown, the received and the withheld, as well as the good and the bad, there is a gap. In this gap, each life gives definition to itself and defines its meaning and course. Most people will not realize this gap early in life; they would…

Contradictions.

Can you separate wisdom from the muchness of words that comes from a talkative? When the critic, whose opinion of you is inaccurate, draws inferences from weaknesses you exhibit, what will your response be? The delicate mix of virtue and vileness sometimes wear the most resilient out. While one carefully sieves through the muchness of…

Of Growth and Boundaries

There is something amazing about PHYSICAL growth: as beautiful and necessary as it may be, beyond a set limit, it would be a disaster – actually a malignancy! Have you ever imagined what we would look like if we don’t stop growing physically after a particular stage in life? Many of us would be giants…

Impossible Love

Often times, we have family conversation, in our home. I am growing deeply fond of it because it seems to bring more clarity to pressing life matters we may not be giving deliberate  attention to at the moment. Yesterday was one of those conversations, and here is one  of them, I thought it may be…

Choosing Sanity in Truth

A couple of days back, an older lady picked a fight with me. I was not in the mood for a fight, I had bigger concerns that mattered to me than a petty fight with someone who believed she understood what she was saying; unfortunately, if only she knew how uninformed she was, she would…

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…

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…

Is there the Authentic Design for Sex and Love?

Recently, I stumbled on a Netflix series of documentaries by an international journalist on sex and love around the world. I decided to download the episodes and listen, beginning from my continent – Africa. The things I heard are very disturbing. I literally could no longer follow the series with my eyes open. . .what…
