#My Testimony…All Hail The End Of The 6Years Rat Race!

So I am sitting here right now, waiting for the bus to be filled up for me to go back to NYSC things and I’m thinking, why don’t I use this time for something profitable? You know, satan is a very silly somebody oh. Yesterday of all days which was my call day, He tried all he could to steal my joy. First, the hausa okada man who carried me didn’t know where he was going to, he carried me round town and I was worried of being late for […]

Nathaniel Bassey’s Message On The Will Of God

It was a serious struggle for me to put up this post. My flesh was struggling with my spirit. Today is going to be a very busy day for me and I wanted to just gloss over today’s online Bible study, but then it’s easy to lapse behind in writing again and again after doing it once. And not doing this post would also mean that I can’t do the other posts I have scheduled because this is a background to a series of stuff I would be talking about […]

Nathaniel Bassey’s Message On The Will Of God Part 2

Continuation from the last post…   Download the PDF version of this study here As you get into the word and know the will, you begin to enforce them through prayer. Remember, every time you see the will of God, you see it in line with prayer. You don’t say what will be will be, no, God has made us caretakers, He has given us keys, authority to bind things on earth that will be bound in heaven. Some of us are crying, God loves us but we are suffering. […]

One Woman Shining Is Equivalent To Womanhood Shining As A Whole…

I originally wrote this for Precious Igwe of http://preshinspires.wordpress.com for her “Redefining feminity” series. Enjoy…   It has been said that a certain feminine trait must exist in the lives of some women no matter how much they try to shake it off. They say all women must bicker at the top of their voices regardless of wherever they are, even in public. Pictures abound of women tearing off their hairs while engaging in combats worthy of being featured in Nollywood movies. They say all women must hate their fellow women […]

My Cooking Skills Do Not Define Me

Originally on BellaNaija http://www.bellanaija.com/2014/06/24/frances-okoro-my-cooking-skills-do-not-define-me/   This article was misinterepeted a lot and it is my hope that someone gets the real meaning I was trying to pass across…   *********************************************************** When I was younger, I used to have a very sharp and acidic tongue. I could go off in a crazy roll when anything at all got on my nerves-just prepare to be assaulted with words in really big grammar. As I grew in maturity and consequently gave my life to Christ however, everything changed. I am now more for diplomacy, […]

Unplugged!

April 23rd 2014   Dear Diary, Feels like I’ve left you dry for a while… well, the minister at church today said we should write and note the happenings at the service, and what better place to do that than to write to you? I walked into that service today with no inkling of what God was about to do in my life. I was hit by a revelation so great, the only thing I could do was cry like a baby under the touch of the Holy Spirit. I […]

Maybe Castration Would Stop Them… Just Maybe!

I wrote thisoriginally for www.mateyscott.com   ***********************************************************   I have always wondered about what I would feel if I was raped… Would there be dark red trails of blood between my legs… Or would the pain in me be numbed to nothing? Would their voices ring in my head through the ordeal or would I drift into blessed unconsciousness? Weird yes? But it’s not really weird. Every time I hear a story about a victim who was raped, I always feel so bad… bad enough for me to try and […]

Place A Lid On The Pressure

Originally on BellaNaija http://www.bellanaija.com/2014/09/19/frances-okoro-imperfectly-perfect/   *********************************************************** They say they do not want to pressure you but it’s there… It’s there in their eyes. It’s there in their words. It’s there when you ask for money from them because you don’t have a job yet. It’s there when they ask “when we go come chop rice na?” It’s there when your mother repeatedly gushes about the wrapper she dreams of tieing on your wedding day. It’s there when you father says “for you, a partner should even come before you get a […]

Let Him…

I wrote this originally for mosmiles On her “cactus series” A lot of us struggle with things we feel hold us back from God… Friends, money, fame, the world… We find it hard to let go and let God but it is my hope that as we read this, we will find the courage to let go of what maybe holding us back and let God come in. That we can understand that whatever we drop on the way to embracing Christ into our lives is ultimately for our own […]
