    Diligent Hands Rule

    During the sendforth program for our Batch B brethren at one of our Bible Study centres, the brethren shared their Adamawa experiences. How God used the journey to mould them and bring out virtues in them. A brother made a striking statement, he said “I arrived the land with a meager amount of #1,500… But learnt very quickly that God doesn’t bless empty hands.” No wonder bible says, “Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth.” Prov. 10:4 Shalom!     So folks, I’m working on a project. People desire to live a successful life but most times, it seems something is holding them back. What that something…

    My Personal Struggle With Inertia

    When it comes to writing, I struggle at times. My struggles come mainly from the task of writing itself and seldom what to write. Even when I know what to write, I almost do not feel like writing; I mean putting the pen to paper or fingers to the keypad. I’d scribble my thoughts down on some occasions and discard it for lack of delivery of my exact thoughts and intents. Writing can be a chore! There are times I almost do not feel like writing, yet I must! It has been a while I posted here, basically for the above stated reason… I ask for your attention as you…

    3 Lessons from the Ostrich Next Door

      Just across the window of my room is a lovely view. Who wouldn’t love that? The compound next to ours is quite large but that is not the highlight. The landlord is an animal lover (I like to think more of a collector). He has several kinds of animals like hares, a tortoise (so I heard), peacocks, rams, ducks, other birds and an Ostrich. Of course, the head turner for me as at when I moved into my apartment weeks ago was the Ostrich. My reason? Simple, it was my first time of seeing a real life ostrich (hehehe) Ironically, I wouldn’t say it is an attractive bird but…

    In Retrospect: January and Beyond

    Hi there! Somehow, we have counted the first 30 days of the year 2018. Amazing, isn’t it? yet some would say that this time last year we were in March. Lol, funny right… In a moment, we’d be into the month of February, the month of Love (can I get an amen). More than the days we count friends, we must look and ask ourselves if we are making each day count. If we are making the most of the days i.e. our time! Well, from my end January was an amazingly long one, several ups and mostly been pushed out of my comfort zone. I had my Final Year…

    Scent of Water

    This picture of #ScentOfWater came out beautiful. The letters, perfect by my own parameters. Everything in place.  Life is like this at times…  Beautiful, vibrant and without any form of unforseen contingencies… As when all forces are working together towards the achievement of one’s purpose.  Everything moves flawlessly just as intended.  Till… …Till Everything suddenly came to a halt.  Like this crushed paper, it felt as though life was crushed out of you.  Your hopes were dashed… Your expectations were met with  disappointment. You decided to forfeit the dreams… “They are just dreams anyway!” You said countless times to console yourself. Perhaps, you felt used and left for the trash.…

    Nail Convos (#ForTheLoveOfNails)

    I like my nails long and neat. In fact, I believed that their being shapely is a gift from God but I have a weakness…  Whenever I am privileged to carry a book to read, write or when I am in thoughts my fingers find their way to my toes and begin to break them nails. Its almost an unconscious action. Other times it comes in handy, if I’m in a meeting (bored) and I’m feeling sleepy I begin to peel off my finger nails (yes, they are soft!) Now, where is all these headed?  So early this month, while reading one morning I peeled off a portion of my…

    Limelight (musings of a mini star)

    Limelight  (musings of a mini star) I am scared of the limelight… Am I ready for this I ask me for the umpteenth time As I stand on the corridors back stage, my muscles are tense, I hold back… Would I be a chameleon when the limelight hits me… Or would I be the LIGHT I am and consume every ray of the limelight?  Because the former is a result possible when the sense of purpose is gone, and the later is who I am or what is expected of me.  …I have to shine my light as received for the Bright STAR…I must remain in Him… Jesus said “No…

    Be Still 

    Have you ever tried to wiggle while being injected?? Hum it’s always a messy scenario. The nurse will likely say, ‘Be still’ Now, here is how it is when God is working in the life of a man.  Every time you try to influence his work by doing what he has not sent you to do… You are not being still! When you worry, doubt, fear…You are not being still! When you don’t read or study the word to know the ways of God… You cant be still to let him do his work. When you don’t pray… You can’t be still. When you are not obedient to all he…

    Mused 006: Hmmm Generation

    ‘Ride on pastor!’, ‘Hmmm’, ‘Glory’ and many more hailings resounded in the Church auditorium as Pastor Jeffrey exhorted the Church on the with a message tittle “The Devil ain’t Having My Goods.” The more he talked, you could literally feel hell heat up in anger as he delivered men from mental bondages. The Church in response shouted more ‘Hmmm(s)’ and ‘Glory’… Here is our Generation, the “Hmmm” Generation!  Fortunately, ours isn’t the first of its kind. Examining a parallel event in the Holy Bible, We find a woman who is so excited about Jesus’ teachings and insights that she blesses the womb that bore him Luke 11:27-28 (KJV) 27. And…
