    Sombre Reflection as I Open a New Chapter of Life

    In all honesty, I love birthdays. Every new year and at several times during the year, I check the weekday my birthday and that of loved ones falls on, just because. I am not one of those people that say they forgot their own birthday. I can’t even pretend to forget. In summary, today is my birthday, yippee! A new year, cake day! Birthdays are always worth celebrating. Not only celebrating, for me it is usually a time of reflection and a time to make some life-enhancing decisions.  This year’s reflection is however dear to my heart as the world celebrates the life of Christian apologist, Pa Ravi Zacharias as…

    Terrific Life Principle to Live By

    At the family house last night, devotion was a blessing. I’d share some of the wisdom I gleaned. WWJD: What Would Jesus Do? A commonly asked question when in search of direction, insight or clarity over matters. In fact, a multitude of believers grew up using this question as a model to find answers. The minister explained that to receive insight into what Jesus would do, we have to first understand What Jesus Did while here on earth. This statement, made a resounding sense to me. Because the topic for the week is As He Walked. He being Jesus, our perfect example from the Father. As we focus on Him,…

    Omolabake Episode 14

    Episode 14 “How is Granny O doing?” Michael stepped out of the bathroom dressed in his flannel pajamas. Gideon lay on the bed facing the ceiling. “Better, I guess. Though the Doctor requested she undergoes a couple of tests” Gideon replied as he pulled the duvet close to his chin. Michael sat on the other side of the bed. “Turns out you got more than you bargained for when you took the job.” “That’s right… I could never have imagined any of these” Gideon said. Michael scoffed, “You know, I’d have thought you crazy if I didn’t believe God speaks, not to talk of leads his children” “Yeah, I know……

    Fruitfulness

    But here is why he says so, “Dwell in me, and I in you. As it is impossible for branches to bear any fruit while disconnected from trees, so it is impossible for you to experience fruitfulness i.e to have any fruit except you are connected to me… Except my life flows to you. Except you fed from me for I am the source.” John 15:4(paraphrased). Selah. #wordstoliveby

    Is Slay Mama From Zion?

    Is Slay Mama From Zion? “God forbid it! our daughters do not slay”, was  the response of Prophet Isaiah earlier today to the JTL team who interacted with him on the misuse of social media by many Christians, which he spoke about last week.  The crew asked, so as to clarify the misconception of several that “you can be a christian and yet slay” Speaking to explain what is obtainable in Zion, the city of God, the Prophet said, In the begining it was not so, but the thin line has been crossed by many of my daughters, thereby reproaching ME. You call yourself my daughter, but you are not,…

    Trust

    Look at ’em birds They have nothing, yet they have everything they need.  No single worry on their mind… Clothed in glorious feathers. Fed in due time. It strikes me that when my Lord Jesus was to tell his disciples about Trust, these were his words… Matthew 6:26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?  Pause and read even slowly… YOUR FATHER in Heaven cares for as little as these… Hey! how much more,  very own Child. Let this realization warm your heart as you Journey…
