Faithfulness: The Reason Why I Do What I Do

When I started my blog in 2013, I had no idea on what the blog was really about. Then in 2014 after Law School everything changed. I had spent some time after Bar Finals waiting on God before I traveled home and one of the things He spoke to me about was the blog. Contrary to what I thought, the blog wasn’t just a blog, it is a ministry for Jesus. Bringing light and truth to people. The blog according to God is a huge part of what He has for me to do for Him. And He ended the whole talk by saying “stay faithful with the blog”.   A lot of the persons I meet end up saying […]

25, Single And Deriliously Happy

So technically, I am not 25 yet. I will be 25 in September but I am also not quite 24 right? And 25 just sounds better even though I am wondering how I am 25 so soon! I still remember when I was 16! I was going to base today’s letter on something else but I just got up from my prayer time (I am writing this at 01:51am. (Yes Black I see you  snickering at me, I don’t have insomnia 🙂   I was in the bathroom just now when this post came to me…   It has come to my notice that my favorite place to be is not at a date with any man… Neither is it […]

Dear Diary: I Love The Way He Loves Me

I spent a lot of time thinking about God yesterday. Actually, it started the day before. I have been having an overwhelming desire for something lately and sometimes when I think about it, I wound up with questions in my heart. Will God really give me this? Do I deserve it? I don’t deserve it. I ached so bad, trying to really wonder whether or not I can dare to believe that my Father will give me something so good. And then all of a sudden I remembered a verse with which God used to wake me up last year. “For the LORD God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The LORD will withhold […]

Stand Fast; Keep Guard In Your Path Of Purpose

In January this year I had two dreams that showed me that satan wasn’t happy with what the Lord has given to me to do for Him. At the time I was a bit lax with my prayer life…well because I was in a wilderness season and I had taken a kind of break from “active Christianity” to deaden myself to some things which I felt like God had not done for me. I don’t watch movies; I screen them and mostly watch only Christian movies once in a green moon but in that season I started bingeing on Jenifa. I kind of stopped my prayer time/became really lax with praying in tongues. When I did, I could clearly hear […]

Knowing Jesus || Man Of Compassion

  “Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” -Matthew 9:35-38 We have been studying Jesus for the past few weeks, if you missed it, you can catch up HERE. For today what was ringing in my heart is how compassionate Jesus. Jesus is compassionate, kind and has a really soft heart. […]

In Him: The Only Way We Can Fulfil Our Purpose

‘For IN HIM we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’ -Acts 17:28 NIV IN HIM was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. -John 1:4 NIV Remain IN ME, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. -John 15:4 NIV   I was at YWAD (Youths with a difference) event on Saturday. I spoke on “Being a 21st century Jesus lover” (now if only I can get the video clips. Yomi? Thank you. Lol). That morning I woke up with “in Him was […]

But Why Are You So Picky About Choosing A Husband?

Dear Single Ladies And Gentlemen, I remember having an argument with some guys when I was at Nigerian Law School. I had said that I will not accept a man who would cheat on me and I believe that God won’t give me that kind of man and I was told to “go find that kain man na”. I wasn’t a new believer per say but I also really didn’t have totally strong convictions in God then. I was easily swayed by the comments of men and after that argument, I laid on my bed putting it all together and weighing the comments of man against the word of God. I was so worried, I sent a message to Pastor […]

Knowing Jesus || Man Of Prayer

Hi 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 the nearby villages–so […]

Understanding The wilderness Seasons Of walking In Purpose

For 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 there….yet”. Now here […]

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

My 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 be there. She […]
