    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…

    Omolabake Episode 13

    Episode 13 Morinsola had texted her Pastor’s wife that she needed to meet with her before their usual Thursday fellowship at Maggies. So she had replied that they could meet on Tuesday at her office. They sat in her teal green oval office. “Tell me everything, Sister Morin?” She had recounted the events of Sunday to the woman. “After my secondary school education. I enrolled at a coaching center in preparation of my JAMB exams.” She stood up from the chair. “I was sixteen and a beauty. My mother always said I was a carbon copy of her mother who was an Igbo woman.” “I was the envy of all…

    Omolabake Episode 9

    Episode 9 “Thank you” Morinsola smiled at the guard who pulled the eatery`s door for her. She scanned the room and sighted the booth where Omolabake sat. Their eyes met. Labake smiled. Morinsola made her way over to the booth. A woman with a bag stopped her in her tracks. “Hello Madam” She looked up to see her Pastor`s wife. “Oh, Good afternoon ma.” After exchanging pleasantries, the woman left with her food packs. “Old friend?” Omolabake asked as Morinsola took her seat, taking a sip of her smoothie “Actually. She is my Pastor`s wife.” “Oh nice” Omolabake wasn’t much of a church person. “So how are you?” She abruptly…

But after work, can one really help who he falls in love with?” Gideon asked rhetorically. The interviewer didn’t flinch. Not even a move of eyebrow or a smile to give her away.

    Vision

    Man is moved by sight.  Man moves by sight  Is man a puppet?   Since what propels his every action or inaction  is his accurate  estimation  of what he sees or doesn’t see.  So is man moved by sight?  Does his heart stir in jubilation  as he is enlightened about the numerous possibilities  that abound  within  and without  his potentials?  Or Do you think he sees these things… Retreats in fear, shrugs in disbelief, critical of the mere thought  of such vivid visions…  Either way, Man moves by sight… May or may not be in the right direction with respect to worthy of note is that man moves by what…

    You are Fired!

    You are fired! “So much pressure at work… Gosh, my Boss is so annoying”  James hit the enter button of his laptop so as to update his Facebook status. This was his seventh status update in twenty minutes. Clearly, it was a rant! Of course, he didn’t mention anybody’s name, that would be a dumb move on his part (or so he thought) neither did he tag anyone to call their attention to his post. He only posted as a way to clear his mind and get a some sympathy. Obviously, he had forgotten to keep in mind a little but important detail.  Trust James’ Facebook family never to carry…

    Purpose

    “So Tomi, have you discovered your purpose?” Yet another (well meaning) person would ask this question.  I’d cringe internally without any answers, no perfect one liner, no complicated speech on how I’ve been sent to save the world.  This was about five years ago. So, one day I got frustrated and typed a search query on Google “How do I discover my purpose?” (Not sure if these were my exact words).  Trust na, I got  answers. Most surprising/shocking for me was an Article… Okay so this writer says (I paraphrased) “To discover your purpose is not hard at all… Get a piece of paper. When you think of  the reason…
