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 […]

Life Lately: Lessons, Trials And Triumph From Our Ladies Event/Book Launch At Port Harcourt

First of all, my new book “Prayers for your future husband” has not been officially launched. Yes. The night before the event we found out that the books were not going to get to Port Harcourt till the next day. I cried. I was frantic. I thought of calling off the event and then I texted my brother… “What’s a book launch without my books..?” His first reply? “Lol, your books? Who told you that the books are yours? Just because your name is on the front cover doesn’t mean […]

Recounting Testimonies Of God’s Divine Provision

I have a lot of faith journeys to do this year. And the way things are coming up is unreal. Firstly, I had been so beaten down by 2016 my mind was blank about 2017.

First the book launch of “prayers for your future husband” doubling as […]

What I Would Consider A Successful Year

Here’s what I am currently listening to…   I ended 2016 with a desire to see Jesus and Jesus alone revealed in my life. I felt like I had been drawn so much into trusting the Lord for “testimonies” that I lost track of Him somewhere in there. Everyone was celebrating how awesome 2016 had gone with new jobs, marriage, cars etc and since I didn’t have these things I almost couldn’t see God. And it bothered me.   I have said here before that my relationship with God didn’t […]

From My Diary: Oceans

I do not like to sing “Oceans” by Hillsongs anymore. Ever since I found out what I am inadvertently saying by singing that song, I tend to wait, hum and meditate on the words as I listen.. and REALLY be sure before I sing along. Because its singing songs like that to Jesus that has landed me where I am right now. In Ekiti State. Back again. Again. Again. You can tell that I am trying to see the humour in this right? I am. I really am.   But […]

From My Diary: Your Love Finally Caught Up With Me

Yesterday I stumbled unto a post I had written in 2014 when I was in Law School. I didn’t have enough boldness as I currently have now so I wrote the diary like it wasn’t me… in the third person. But it was me alright; me in all my brokenness. I used to go on top of the roof in Law School then, plug in Hillsongs and speak to God/cry, wondering what was wrong with me and why I just seemed to have a lot of baggage trailing me. I […]
