Knowing Jesus || Man Of Prayer

Share this on WhatsAppHi blog fam. It’s been almost four weeks of digging more into Jesus and if you have missed #OnlineBibleStudy for the past weeks, click here. For today, the one deal about Jesus that was ringing in my heart is “man of prayer”. So let’s dig into this attribute of Jesus and see how it can help us also to become more like Him. “Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. Simon and his companions went to look for him, and when they found him, they exclaimed: “Everyone is looking for you!” Jesus replied, “Let us go somewhere else–to […]

Understanding The wilderness Seasons Of walking In Purpose

Share this on WhatsAppFor Those Who Aren’t ‘Outwardly Manifesting Purpose’….Yet   Have you discovered your purpose yet? Are you currently walking in it? Some persons would answer yes to both questions. Some other persons would answer yes to the first question and no to the latter. If that person is you then this post is for you. You know, today’s world is rife with applause being given to everyone who is “doing stuff” and making waves. You see words like “I celebrate you for walking in your purpose” and if you don’t know this truth I am about to share, then there is a tendency for you to feel down and count yourself as nothing because you aren’t all “out […]

The Struggle Between Letting Go (Of That Guy/Girl) And Letting God

Share this on WhatsAppMy dear single ladies and gentlemen, I remember that day or rather those days so clearly. Those days of wondering whether I was supposed to leave the relationship I was in or not. You see, I wanted a new life; I wanted a different life, one better than the one which I had. I didn’t know how to get it except to go back to God – the One  I had no intimate knowledge of but simply knew He was there. And so I had discussions with my fellowship vice president then. Those discussions went something like me saying: “Sister Toju, say a girl is in a relationship and she knows that its wrong and she shouldn’t […]

Knowing Jesus || His Faithfulness

Share this on WhatsAppOne day my sister asked me; “why do you always like to sing this song?” What song? We are saying, faithful are you Lord… Faithful are you Lord… Faithful are you Lord… You are so faithful. Every time we had prayers and I was to lead worship, I would always start with that song. Ah, she just had to ask. Truth is, the personality of God that I hold on to the most is His faithfulness. I have seen God as my Savior. I have experienced Him as my provider. But one thing that keeps me always is when I remember His faithfulness. It gives me hope for the future and hope when I am discouraged. For […]

…Not For The Applause Of Men

Share this on WhatsAppAlmost everywhere I turn… Instagram, Facebook, etc. There is such a grapple for fame and applause. Everyone wants to be seen as doing something for God. As walking in purpose. “I” am doing this and I am doing that. There’s just such a slap on your face when you get into social media and sadly this push to do one thing or the other has crept into the Christian fold.   Now, if you are not walking in purpose/your purpose is not outwardly manifesting like others are, you are deemed to be a failure. Worse, you yourself deem yourself to be a failure (we will talk about outwardly manifesting purpose soon). Last year I got a “I […]

Hope For Those From Divorced And Damaged Homes

Share this on WhatsAppDear Single Ladies and Gentlemen, I feel the need to encourage those of us from messed-up homes today. You know, recently I have been feeling tugged on by God to hold a series of relationship, courtship and marriage events wrapped up in line with “Prayers for your future husband”. In fact, our next conference from “The women at the well” will be based on relationships and marriage. And my first response to God was to say that “Lord you know that I am not married”. Not only am I not married, I am a very unlikely person to be used by God in the area of love, relationships and marriage. If you do not know, I do not […]

The True Test Of Love || God’s Love Language

Share this on WhatsAppObedience “I have loved you, [just] as the Father has loved Me; abide in My love [continue in His love with Me]. If you keep My commandments [if you continue to obey My instructions], you will abide in My love and live on in it, just as I have obeyed My Father’s commandments and live on in His love.” -John 15:9-10 I skipped this topic last two weeks when it came to me at Port Harcourt. By the way I must apologize for not being faithful with #OnlineBibleStudy on here for the past few weeks, I have the topics in my head but always have valid reasons not to post them. Number one is the Blackberry I […]

How I Discovered My Purpose

Why You Should Pray For Your Future Husband

Share this on WhatsAppWhen I was at Nigerian Law School in the year 2014, I had a roommate whose call to my sister on her 17th birthday included prayers for her future husband. I stood listening to the conversation and at the end of the call I jokingly remarked that “my sister is just 17!” Her reply was classic; she said “we are supposed to start praying for our marriage and husbands right from childhood, this is even late” (paraphrased). Today, 3 years later, I totally agree with her. You know, today’s Christian woman has a lot of gap to fill when it comes to prayers for her man/marriage. Somehow, we have tilted more into worries that can do nothing […]

Jesus, I Don’t Love You Enough

Share this on WhatsAppFew days back I found myself crying after I read a devotional from Prov31 Ministries. I was crying “Jesus I don’t love you enough, come be my greatest desire”. You see, I have been wrapped by so many needs in this season – valid needs and it seems like every time I sit before the Lord, my heart is crying out to Him, “Lord supply all my needs as you have promised to do”. Over and over He comes through for me, but still something is still scared to free fall into His hands. I apologize over and over again “Lord, I am sorry that I trust you in so little ways.. even after I see all […]

Stewards! Stewards! That’s Who We Are!

Share this on WhatsApp“Prayers for your future husband” almost put me in trouble with this steward  deal… I related the story here. Somehow I got into thinking that these books must be my books. The efforts my efforts. The plans of my doing. Maybe I wasn’t thinking like that out rightly but in my heart, those were my thoughts. It took a test for me to see my heart. So I have had to relive and remind myself of Matthew 25 afresh again.   “Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his wealth to them. To one he gave five bags of gold, to another two bags, and to another […]
