Over time, I have come to understand that faith comes by hearing and also goes by hearing. Think about a random or not so random comment that came to you on an otherwise happy day and totally deflated you and took away your peace. Yes, you listened to words that threatened the faith built by… Continue reading You Say…
Yaaay!!! I’m back. This has been quite a loooooong break and I am unable to offer a tenable excuse for being away for so long. The journey of life continues and sharing here very often brings more strength to me than you realize. I come back sometimes to read my posts and I am reminded… Continue reading Life Hack: The Helper
A few weeks ago, I was at a training session at work. We were split into 3 groups and each group had a jigsaw puzzle to complete. There was a prize to be won by the group that completed the puzzle first. We all got to work, different strategies. Trust me, I got all the… Continue reading Random Pieces
When I was a kid, my mum used to be almost paranoid about spills and wet floors and for good reason too. Water spills are reputed as one of the major causes of domestic and industrial accidents. Unlike other liquids that would often leave a stain, water because of its colourlessness was a danger that… Continue reading Wet Spills
On my daily commute, I go past one of two routes depending on the time. It’s like clockwork such that sometimes without mentally committing myself, I find myself driving along the route. I am sharing this to explain how familiar this route is and how much I felt I noticed along my work trips. Along… Continue reading Behind the Scenes
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… Continue reading LOUD IT: Jehovah Overdo!!!
When we were much younger some of my siblings walked on their toes. My grandparents, uncles and aunties all had fun saying to them to put their feet down. LOL!!! Just the memory of it has me in stitches. Not sure if it was a paternal or maternal legacy but it was passed on to… Continue reading Being vs. Doing…
My dear Hauwa, I think this is a good time to share with you how I’m learning to wait on the Lord. I trust that it will help you as you journey through 2016. As a single adult waiting on God for a mate amongst other things, I certainly have learned what it means to wait and… Continue reading Letter to Hauwa…
It was October 5 2015, as I drove to work that day; I tuned my radio to listen to Smooth 98.1’s 7:30 am ‘Freshly Pressed.’ It turned out that it was World Teachers Day. The presenters took time to appreciate their fondest teachers and encouraged everyone to do same; very nostalgic memories that program turned… Continue reading Tomorrow
On my route to and from work every day, I have to commute via a toll plaza. The way the plaza is set up, there is an e-tag lane for prepaid clients who have a tag affixed to their windshields and ensures a much faster drive through an express lane. That’s the fastest lane. The next option… Continue reading Mercy over Judgment

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… Continue reading LOUD IT : Transformation Agenda
But I have this [one charge to make] against you: that you have left (abandoned) the love that you had at first [you have deserted Me, your first love].Remember then from what heights you have fallen. Repent (change the inner man to meet God’s will) and do the works you did previously [when first you… Continue reading Me and my e-tag
As kids, we often got into some mischief and ended up with bruises and cuts. Then the cut would be disinfected and cleaned thoroughly and antibiotic powder sprinkled and then layered with gauze and then a plaster would be slapped across and then that tetanus shot we would have to take and then we would need to… Continue reading Don’t hide your wounds!
I remember it just like yesterday. I was an SS2 student in a Federal Government College and we were a few terms away from being the guys in charge. It was a Tuesday evening and on Tuesday evenings we had rice and beef stew for dinner. Typically, we went straight to night prep classes from… Continue reading I fell…
My dear friend recently concluded the 40 days beginning of the year fast declared by Daddy Adeboye for the RCCG family. Infact, he missed a day and had to do 2 days extra to compensate. Then at the end of the fast, just at the thought of freedom to eat whatever he wanted, my friend… Continue reading Spoiling a good thing…
Dearly beloved people, How are we all doing? The sun is setting on 2014, I can hardly believe we are a few hours away from a curtain call for 2014. “We are open books and part of conquering is that we leave nothing in the shadows… People who like to hurt other people will find tools, but… Continue reading The Circle of Life
Some days ago, my team hosted a video conference meeting. It’s a monthly meeting scheduled for 8 am. Being the hosts, we were there ahead of the scheduled time. This day however, as we connected with one of the regions, we noticed the cleaning staff in the room. The guy was totally oblivious of any… Continue reading The Unseen Eye
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.… Continue reading The 6 personality styles: Which are you?
Recently, I was involved in a renovation project and even I am amazed by the insight it brought and I am going to share it here. Mr and Mrs. X lived in their own home alongside their kids. They had built and moved into the house several years ago and become quite comfortable in the… Continue reading The MakeOver
