ROME WAS NOT BUILT IN A DAY

It's a brand new day and I feel somewhat nostalgic writing this.  This is my 20th blogpost and I can't help but reflect on how the journey all started indeed Rome wasn't built in a day. Amidst the ups and downs, the schedules, the unforeseen circumstances and every other thing in between, the blog is progressing powerfully. No retreat, No surrender! In whatever venture you may be involved in, it won't all make sense at once. It won't be a global rave the first day but you keep at it and see how it will all blossom beautifully one day....

WHO AM I?

Yippie! Yippie!! I'm here again. Told you no more long breaks. So today, our discourse is on the question WHO AM I? Now, this is not a review of Hillsong's rendition. Let's say this is my medium of welcoming you to April😆 Growing up, I heard a lot of awful words around. Everywhere you turn, someone has a terrible name to call another. Mothers do not spare their children nor their spouses, fathers do not spare their family as well, friends have turned it to the norms, and neighbors do not even care. They will say whatever they want to...

HELP! I DO NOT HAVE A FRIEND….

I know you are wondering exactly what this fine picture is doing here and its correlation with "Help! I don't have a friend......." Well, you will soon find out in these few paragraphs of mine. I apologize for this long break. We won't be having any other break this long anytime soon. Amen! Fire!!!😉. So take a look once again at that topic and let's delve into it. Many of us have been on this table time and time again. Some of us are currently seated chiefly at the table. We seem so detached from people and get so worked...

PRESERVED FOR MORE…..

Thank you Lord for giving me Jesus Christ. Thank you Lord for preserving all of me. It's a brand new slate and the lyrics above kept ringing In my heart all through the crossover service. I do not even know the song per se. Just that the first line kept reoccurring and verses popped up in me. No one ever invested with the hope of recording losses. It's not done anywhere. This year, the Lord is making you aware that you are being preserved for more. You are not just here to shout Happy New year and eat spicy Jollof....

CONFESSIONS

One disservice you can do for yourself is to neglect what you say to yourself. If you feel there's no need for you to make confessions for your life then you need a major mind shift. For years on end, I neglected the mirror. I just didn't feel comfortable looking at me. I mean it was so so weird. Like just abnormal for me to view me. It went on and on and then a season came. I became so interested in me and was wowed by what I found out. I fell in love with me. I became so...

IS THERE REALLY A WAY AROUND GRIEF?

This has been the question in the heart of many. Is there really a way around grief? Can grief even be dealt with? How do I get this cloak of grief over and done with? The list is endless. It keeps growing as disaster increases. Life wouldn't wait for you. Growing up, 23rd December has always been such a weighty day for me. I get touchy at every opportunity and can't wait for the whole festive season to be over. At least, I'll have my life back. My busy life, that made no room for intrusion. I couldn't have been...

JUST FOR YOU!

You are most likely reading this long like way long after I've written it. Recently, I've gone into a phase where I write, hoard, write, stack, write, wait and well just keep on thinking. Situations do not often go the way you plan. They have this habit of spiralling beyond your control and leave you hanging after balance. You thought you have it all under control, you thought it's all going to be smooth and enjoyable. But no the hiccups stare you in the face and drain every zeal or energy you thought you had. As much as this sounds...

GO FOR GOLD: YOU ARE NOT A NONENTITY

Gold as we all know means something valuable, something unique, something extraordinary. But unfortunately in this age, many do not want to reach for the gold rather they settle for something trivial. Let's pick up Jim once again. So say Jim has this vision of owning a big factory someday soon but all around him, a guy his age is expected to be into "AD". Now due to what people will think, our dear Jim will abandon his dream of having a factory and join the "AD" crowd at the expense of his destiny. That others are involved in one...

It's been a while but I'm back here. These past weeks have been filled with various activities. One of these days, we'll talk about them. This is not your regular post but then it's one you won't be able to drop in a hurry. Delving into a new territory may be daunting but that shouldn't deter you. You never know what you're capable of if you don't launch out. Today, I would love you all to meet Jim. Jim is your average Naija youth, always eager for where the next big opportunity will come from. He doesn't sleep on a...
