Life Lately: What Gratitude Looks Like For Me Right Now

I’ve had a really amazing weekend. A weekend so good it had me crying on the shoulders of a sister… not tears of sadness but tears of joy. The weekend had me laughing out crazily at just how good God is… The weekend had me locking up myself in the rest room just to be able to get some quiet to kneel down and thank God for His awesome deeds in my life.   The Gracdmisfit and Vicky gave me […]

Who Do You Look Unto For Help?

Let me tell you the story of how I got funds for my book… At first, I had faith to carry only 100 copies which they told me was 38000 Naira… that wasn’t a problem on my faith walk because I simply calculated that I had the money in my bank account… even though it would totally deplete my NYSC savings.   Afterwards the idea came to get the book up to 500 copies which was 85000 naira… for this […]

Lessons From The Woman At The Well

I studied the “Woman at the well” for the first time last year. I say “studied” because I had read it lots of times before but I only began to see the lessons I saw in it last year. Recently, God has again been opening up a different aspect of Jesus’ meeting with the Samaritan woman in John 4. It’s basically something He wants me to share at the singles hangout this Saturday. I’m not free to share my recent […]

For Christian Writers/Bloggers: Lay Aside The Weight Of Distractions

This wasn’t supposed to be the plan today. I was supposed to share a post on my book’s virtual blog tour/giveaway. But I’ve learned to not be too stringent – so much so that God cannot use me for what He wants to do in a particular season, here and now.   On Saturday, it suddenly dawned deeply in my heart that most of the Christian blogs I read have actually been on “leave” for a while. Some of them […]

A Reminder To You: He Has Got It All Planned!

I love God. I can’t deny it. The things He does… the length He goes to make sure that His message gets to me in a particular season is just a testament to how much more He loves me in return.   I had plans and dreams in my heart when I came to Lagos a week ago. I kind of had it planned out a bit, but I needed faith to appropriate what I saw in my heart and […]

Have You Got A Story To Share From Your Past Like My Past Abortions?

I was sitting in Church yesterday, receiving Word that was exactly what my soul needed at that point in time when the minister, Sister Oyinkan branched into “sharing your story/testimony”. Anyone who has read this blog for a while or has at least stumbled on my story here or my video on Youtube sharing my story on my past abortions already know that sharing my story is something that God has dealt with me on.   I like to joke […]
