Hearing vs. Listening

I love children and have been privileged over the years to watch my young cousins grow from young 6 and 7 year olds to teenagers’ right under my nose.  Not only have they become teenagers, they have grown to just become my little friends who happen to call me ‘auntie’. They check me and trust… Continue reading Hearing vs. Listening

Don’t Forget to Remember

Don’t forget to remember…Those are the beginning lines of a song that so aptly encapsulates my thoughts for today. A few days ago, it was a friend’s birthday and in the build up to her birthday, I had noticed her progressively move from excitement about the day to some moodiness and next thing, she was… Continue reading Don’t Forget to Remember

Peace…

Hello Everyone!!! I’m really sorry that I haven’t posted in a while, last week was busy as I was preparing with my choir, the Lagos Community Gospel Choir (LCGC) and Friends for the concert ‘Beyond Music’ that held on Sunday May 26th. What God did with willing hearts and hands? That is gist for another post…… Continue reading Peace…

‘God Abuse’

I had promised to share on what I term ‘God Abuse’. Yes, you read that perfectly, ‘God Abuse’.  Now I can imagine some confusion. I know we are accustomed to child abuse, verbal abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, elder abuse, sexual abuse and all the many sorts of abuses, and my thought is to share… Continue reading ‘God Abuse’

A deeper relationship…

My friend loves her dad; she loves him to such an amazing depth that I am often left in awe of the purity and selflessness of such a rare father-daughter relationship. A few days ago, as we sat down and talked at lunch, she remembered that she didn’t get a chance to cook over the… Continue reading A deeper relationship…

The Parable of the Egg

Two weeks ago, after I wrote the post about George Muller titled ‘Dare to Believe’, a friend asked me to try and balance faith and patience. She was worried that the piece appeared to reflect faith and instant results when sometimes, God leaves us waiting as He did Joseph, David and Abraham amongst others. Think… Continue reading The Parable of the Egg

Two are better than one

“Two are better than one.” – Ecclesiastes 4:9 Everybody needs somebody; God has surely not called us to a life of isolation. You need someone to protect you, yes, God does protect but you need a human to speak up for you too. Let’s look into the scriptures, when Saul of Tarsus got converted, the… Continue reading Two are better than one

It is a Small World

Somehow, I have always liked to communicate in writing so a note or a letter would be preferable to a face to face conversation at first, especially because I was so shy and still am. I eventually warm up to people so much that they have no idea how shy I really am, but writing… Continue reading It is a Small World

Dare to believe again!

Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee: Jer. 32:17 Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me? Jer. 32:27 Growing up for me was fun… Continue reading Dare to believe again!

Laying the Chips Down…

“All who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution” – 2 Timothy 3:12 (ESV) Every now and again, I meet new believers and see clearly the peace of God upon them. What a beauty? The joy of sins and a past forgiven, the knowledge of a king up there who remembers their… Continue reading Laying the Chips Down…

I love my Big Brother…

Today is my BIG BROTHER’s birthday and I just want to say I love my big Brother… He’s been in my life all my life, LOL!!!  Very quietly protective and one of my strongest cheerleaders to date; ‘don’t worry He says, everything is going to be alright’.  With his very gentle, polite and courteous demeanour… Continue reading I love my Big Brother…

Theory vs. Practice

A few days ago, someone asked me to verbally instruct her on how to make Starch (A Niger Delta delicacy often relished with Banga soup or Owo soup) and then I told her that I would have to show her practically, but that besides that, the consistency that is neither too hard or too soft… Continue reading Theory vs. Practice

Laura Story- A redefinition of Blessings

Hmm, what do you do when you serve God with all you have and yet seem to have so many unmet needs and a life that appears to be ridden with pain? How do you see blessings amidst your hurt? I’d like to introduce you to Laura Story, a woman whose songs have blessed me… Continue reading Laura Story- A redefinition of Blessings

Things Eternal…

My heart and prayers go to all those affected by yesterday’s bomb blast in Boston.  It has been a timely reminder of how fleeting life is and how no one knows which day is their last. I pray that God gives each of us the grace to live our lives in realization of those realities.… Continue reading Things Eternal…

“…I can do a better job of it.”

Yaaay!!! Adam Scott wins the 2013 Masters!!! Yesterday, Adam Scott became the first Australian to win the Masters, beating Angel Cabrera on the second hole of a playoff on a soggy Sunday at Augusta National. The Masters was the only major an Australian had never won, and before now Scott was among dozens of golfers… Continue reading “…I can do a better job of it.”
