LOUD IT: God answers!!!

Category: Testimonies Comments: 2 comments

Basic RGB

My friend and sister (I like to call her ‘Hephzibah’) shares her testimony with us on ‘LOUD IT’ today.

“When I got my job straight out of grad school 4 years ago, a lot of my contemporaries laughed at me. It was at one of those old companies that people have forgotten about but still managed to somehow keep surviving.

At the time, I wasn’t exactly rolling in job offers so it wasn’t like I had any other option than to take it. The salary was below average and to make matters worse I was relocated to one of the most expensive parts of the country.

Back then, I didn’t have a stable relationship with God. I was religious, one of those people Paul speaks about that have a form of godliness but deny its power...

LOUD IT: Jehovah Overdo!!!

jehovaah overdo

I know there’s some of us who need encouragement and that’s why I love testimonies so. They serve as reminders that God did it for someone else. They remind us of God’s might and assure us that if He did it for others. He will do it for us too. They encourage us when we find ourselves in similar circumstances

Today, I am glad to share the testimony of my friend and sister. Infact, she is almost my name sake. I met her first 7 years ago when we belonged to the same praise team/choir. She was diligent and served the Lord with her talent. I knew she was trusting the Lord for a baby but it was really inspiring to see her commit time diligently to service whilst she waited. Here’s her testimony.

“Where do I begin? God has been faithful to me and knowing Him is the biggest testimony of a...

LOUD IT: Faith in the Faithfulness of God

Faithfulness.jpg 1

I had just joined the choir and was still a little lost in the crowd. We had finished choral recitals that day when some lady stood up and wanted to make an announcement. With a shy smile, she said, ‘Today makes it 1000 days since I’ve been married to my best friend and lover…and she had many more accolades to shower on her husband who was also a member of the choir. As per romantic, I was very moved; somehow down the line we became friends, and then family.

First thing I noticed about them was that they were friends constantly struggling to outlove each other. For example, one could organize a surprise for the other and end up being surprised instead. More so, they had such a marvelous heart for God and loved kids.  It was easy to love and be inspired by them...

LOUD IT : Transformation Agenda

Category: Blog Comments: 4 comments

transformation 1

Welcome to the second half of the year. I apologize for my silence for most of the first half. Forgive me. I’m back now.

I feel God inspiring me to share testimonies this month, to amplify the workings of God around me. I feel some of us are getting weary of believing, and I am sharing a few testimonies to show that God Can!!! I think we may not be telling the stories of what God does in our lives enough, so the theme is ‘LOUD IT’.

The biggest testimony I have ever heard or seen is one about the miracle of transformation of a man by the Spirit. God expects that, when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we are radically changed.

Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spirit...

The 6 personality styles: Which are you?

Category: Blog Comments: 26 comments

6 approaches

I have been studying the book of Acts and feeling more inspired than ever to share the gospel of the kingdom everywhere like the early church did. But like many of us, oftentimes I feel constrained because I do not have the ‘depth’ or ‘utterance’ like some people I know so I refrain from sharing altogether.  However, I have recently been reminded that we are all called to minister, even if we are not all called to ministerial offices like pastors and evangelists. By God’s design, we are all different and so my personality determines, or at least impacts, the style of evangelism/ministration  that I could adopt.

In this post, I am going to share very briefly on six effective evangelistic styles inspired by a little exhortation I was recently blessed by...

This Time Next Year II…

I testify

Wow!!! God is always on time. Today, I am so excited to have @2yus back to share the sequel to her ‘This time next year’ post from last year. If you haven’t read it, please check it out here

Have you ever made plans that fell right through? If yes, then you must be familiar with the feeling of uncertainty that comes right after. Sometimes the emotions involved run deeper than uncertainty. You begin to doubt yourself, you feel like your life is at a standstill and you have to listen to everyone give an opinion on what you might have done wrong that made your plans fail or done better to make them succeed. It sucks to be in that place. This was me at some point in the past few months.

To summarize,  my Lover and I made a decision that would require us living apart for a while...

An Agnostic in the Creeks

Agnostic in the Creeks

I’m glad to share this post by my friend and brother, Batarhe Foghi, son of God, husband to my friend/sister, father to a cutie bunny and student of life. :-)

Agnostic in the Creeks1

I’m a student of life, one who reflects on simple and ordinary things that others would probably just shrug their shoulders and move on without a thought. So what you are about to read is a product of one of those introspective moments.

So you were born in a Christian home, raised in Sunday school and with all of the fascinating pictures and stories in ‘My Book of Bible Stories’. You enjoyed the stories of creation and didn’t for a moment doubt the existence of a Living God who most definitely put this splendour called the Universe in place. If you belong in this category, then congratulations to you.

Some other people may have had t...

It’s not about you…

“The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary…” (Isaiah 50:4).

baby shower

On Sunday, I attended a surprise baby shower for my friend. She had trusted God alongside her husband for this baby for a number of years and now God showed up, so it was a gathering of very excited friends, celebrating our friend and thanking God on her behalf. As I sat there excited for her alongside several other friends, one thing that everyone kept saying was how real she was about the pain she felt when she was waiting and how encouraging it was to know beyond Christianese that she felt weary sometimes. She is one of the most cheerful people I know but she was real about her struggle without carrying it on her head...

Where is your limp?

jacob's limp 1

….And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob’s thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him. And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.(Gen 32:25- 28)

jacob's limb 3

Sometimes, I think many of us desire a gospel that is way too pretty. It seems like no one today really wants the battle scars and wounds that often come along with having victory in Christ. Many of us desire to go through life unscathed and untouched; void of any evidence that we have been in a fight...
