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 […]

Knowing Jesus || His Faithfulness

One day my sister asked me; “why do you always like to sing this song?” What song? We are saying, faithful are you Lord… Faithful are you Lord… Faithful are you Lord… You are so faithful. Every time we had prayers and I was to lead worship, I would always start with that song. Ah, she just had to ask. Truth is, the personality of God that I hold on to the most is His faithfulness. I have seen God as my Savior. I have experienced Him as my provider. But one thing that keeps me always is when I remember His faithfulness. It gives me hope for the future and hope when I am discouraged. For the past week, […]

…Not For The Applause Of Men

Almost everywhere I turn… Instagram, Facebook, etc. There is such a grapple for fame and applause. Everyone wants to be seen as doing something for God. As walking in purpose. “I” am doing this and I am doing that. There’s just such a slap on your face when you get into social media and sadly this push to do one thing or the other has crept into the Christian fold.   Now, if you are not walking in purpose/your purpose is not outwardly manifesting like others are, you are deemed to be a failure. Worse, you yourself deem yourself to be a failure (we will talk about outwardly manifesting purpose soon). Last year I got a “I am proud of […]

Hope For Those From Divorced And Damaged Homes

Dear Single Ladies and Gentlemen, I feel the need to encourage those of us from messed-up homes today. You know, recently I have been feeling tugged on by God to hold a series of relationship, courtship and marriage events wrapped up in line with “Prayers for your future husband”. In fact, our next conference from “The women at the well” will be based on relationships and marriage. And my first response to God was to say that “Lord you know that I am not married”. Not only am I not married, I am a very unlikely person to be used by God in the area of love, relationships and marriage. If you do not know, I do not come from a […]

Jesus, I Don’t Love You Enough

Few days back I found myself crying after I read a devotional from Prov31 Ministries. I was crying “Jesus I don’t love you enough, come be my greatest desire”. You see, I have been wrapped by so many needs in this season – valid needs and it seems like every time I sit before the Lord, my heart is crying out to Him, “Lord supply all my needs as you have promised to do”. Over and over He comes through for me, but still something is still scared to free fall into His hands. I apologize over and over again “Lord, I am sorry that I trust you in so little ways.. even after I see all you are doing, […]

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 that it’s yours. Its HIS. THE BOOKS BELONG TO GOD”. Oh Lord, I thought, again? Why won’t you just let me go? I felt like God wanted to squeeze the […]

My NGO Awakening Youthful Seeds For Christ Initiative Goes Live!

Hello my darling blog family! I am excited and also a bit nervous to share this today. If you are an “old blog fam”, then you know that I started “Awakening Youths” in schools when I was a Youth Corper (how time flies! October this year would make it two years since I passed out of NYSC). After spending some time with God in January 2015, asking Him what He had for me to do, I got that my work in schools hasn’t ended, it had just begun. I was led to register the NGO and get started. I started the process even when I didn’t have money and God met me at the point of my need. An amazing […]
