Hearing God…

hearing God 1

Yesterday, I got asked this question: “How would you know God doesn’t approve of the person you’re dating? Hi , can you write on this? Would help a lot of people out there.”

My response is not really relationship advice in itself. It is a little broader as it regards how to know whether or not God approves of our choices. Like marriage, there are important choices we need God’s perspective on as we live our lives and so it is important to not a few of us to be sure that our choices are aligned with His. Infact, the more we grow in Him, the more important His opinion becomes. The idea is not to even choose and ask Him to bless. It is to ask Him to lead us to choose. Kinda like the carpenters rule of ‘measure twice, cut once…’

First, let me begin by saying that God is a good, good fa...

One BIG Lesson

POST

2015 was a year of so many lessons. I would like to share one BIG lesson that was reiterated in my life this year; but first, a background story.

Mr. Robin had an excited little dog, Chloe. She wore her leash and was left around the yard to play. After a while, she started circling a tree, getting herself encumbered. Mr. Robin told her to stop, as she needed to retrace her steps in order to disentangle herself; he knew because he could see the entire picture. Chloe, however, probably felt it was a game or that she was fine all by herself (you know that independent place). After all, there was still more room along the leash, she must have thought. She continued circling the tree until she was totally roped in and almost choking. Only then did she begin whimpering and crying out for help...

Mr Asemota had two daughters, Esosa and Eghosa. He loved them both very much, especially because his wife had died when they were very young so his life revolved around them. Whatever they wanted, he gave, all they had to do was ask. He ensured they were disciplined though and He made time for them. Everyone knew how special his daughters were to him, his PA, staff and business partners all knew his standing instruction. For him, family came first, no matter how busy or high profile the meeting was, a call from either of the girls was a priority. Mr. Asemota would take their calls wherever in the world he was.  He had built an amazing business over the years and with the help of friends and family, had raised his two lovely daughters very well...

Mary & Martha

Mary and Martha

I have addressed the story of Mary and Martha before, see it  here One Thing..,  today however, I’m taking another perspective. We are going deeper. Someone say ‘deeper’. Okay, now I am sure that we are all here. :-)

First mention we have of Mary and Martha of Bethany and their brother Lazarus is in Luke 10.The bible records they were Jesus’ friends and he was visiting their home. Whilst Martha was busy making sure supper was ready, Mary sat at Jesus’ feet listening to him and learning about him.

We often flip this story when we share about ‘ONE THING being needful,’ and more often than not, people come away thinking that relationship/intimacy with Christ such as Mary had is mutually exclusive to service which Martha showed.

Now, truly, does one ever have guests and not provide for t...
