Introducing: Maximizing Your Potential Series

“Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it?…” -Isaiah 43:19   In September this year, I got the above word from God. He said it at the beginning of the month and repeated it on my birthday. It was confirmed at Church with a word Pastor Nat shared and I found myself asking God “what new thing?” What exactly do you want to do in this time? This season? Especially when the year is almost coming to an end…   But God kept and still keeps telling me that He wants to do a new thing and yes, even in these times when it seems like the calendar of men is […]

Memories From Just Us Girls With Dumebi

Hi guys! I hope your week is winding down okay… Well, remember when we interviewed Dumebi here and she spoke about “Just Us Girls” an annual workshop she runs on the International Day Of The Girl Child to celebrate their brightness and their uniqueness? Well, Just Us Girls held live in Ibadan on October 11th 2016 and it was a blast! I can’t explain what seeing all those young girls did to me… It took me back to one of the reasons why I do what I do and why we desire to see young girls live God-given purposeful lives as against what we have in society today. First, I had a selfie with a blog reader! Twas nice to […]

When Your Appetite For Spiritual Things Begin To Wane…

I get worried when I notice that I would rather chat on my phone than pray. I get worried when I notice that I would rather read a work of fiction than read the Bible. I get worried when I notice that I would rather sleep than spend time with Jesus. And all the above scenarios I have experienced or am currently experiencing in some way now. As I sat before the Lord today, these words came to me: “when your appetite for spiritual things begins to wane… your spirit man is dieing and you don’t even know it”. I believe that some of us go down the deep end spiritually and we do not even know it. It would […]

Practical Steps On What To Do During Your Pruning Season

So yesterday, at “The Women At The Well” group, we suddenly started having some discussions on stuff God is tugging on some of us to start, ie, businesses, going forth with ideas, etc. And as we spoke, we not only had ladies belonging to the above criteria, but also those who are currently in the pruning season and so are seemingly doing nothing.   Remember when I wrote about the pruning season HERE before? I have been in the pruning season for most of this year. It lasted for months. Months where I was dry, spiritually tired and weary. I have had days of moping the floor while feeling useless as people went to work… I have days of wondering […]

What I Learned From Watching A Couple This Week

My dear single ladies and gentlemen, I’m so thrilled to be able to write to you again; the last time we had correspondence of this sort was in August. How time flies! I hope you are all doing well. Is anyone among us getting married in this season? It’s been a season of weddings and all. Do share the good news if the bug has hit you too! 🙂 I believe the bug will be hitting lots of us soon… And all the single men and sisters in the house say “amen”! Original God will give you original husband and wife! Amen! Lol. I am kidding a little. I jog with Chioma Jesus songs and there’s a part where she […]

Praying Through (What It Means And How You Can Get There)

Reblogged from The Women At The Well    “Pray until you cry… or you laugh… or you feel a rest…or until the burden lifts” -Pastor Nathaniel Bassey. We have recently had a slew of #TestimoniesArising on the Women At the Well group…testimonies that blow our minds and just keeps us in awe of God’s faithfulness. A sister of ours had her family saved from a near fire disaster. Our Daddy saved them miraculously. After she shared the testimony, another sister of ours, Bolaji shared on how we need to be sensitive in this season and pray when God says PRAY! As I read what she wrote, I was reminded of some words my Pastor Nathaniel Bassey shared with us last […]

What I Want To Be Known For

I was going to share on my upcoming FREE Ebook for aspiring authors but I am working on my laptop with the songs from Pastor Nat’s album launch playing in the background and I am just overwhelmed… So overwhelmed… sometimes as I type right now and listen, I can’t sing or do anything, I just raise my hands and place them on my head like “ewo”!   And this moment reminds me of something I thought of a few days back…   I had scrolled unto someone’s site and was hit by the energy of jumping up to do something for God. To just move ahead and roll unto running with what God has laid in my hands to do. […]

Our Hiding Place

      This has been on my heart since Wednesday but I couldn’t find a quiet place to write down my thoughts. Add to that the fact that I love being in a certain frame of mine when writing #OnlineBibleStudy…so I just felt like passing it up, but it just won’t leave. Maybe someone out there needs it, so I am obeying. I am writing what I can with my less-than-ready self and trusting God to light up the life He wants to light up with it. Wednesday last week, I was so down. I was sitting at the bank, running an errand when stuff just began to run through my mind. I was asking God some questions and […]

The Reason Why You Don’t Succeed At What You Do

“But Samuel replied, “What is more pleasing to the LORD: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or YOUR OBEDIENCE TO HIS VOICE? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.” -1Samuel 15:22 I was meditating on some of the instructions God has given me a while back and I was turning them over and over in my head, poring through my journal where I had written them down… And I realized that some of those instructions, I had not even obeyed them. For the longest time, I had/have been praying for God to fill me with His wisdom as regards what He will have me do and strategies and steps He wants me to […]
