Are we willing to count the cost?

There is a cost to following Jesus. We have been deceived to thinking that our walk with God will be all good but Jesus is saying otherwise.

Join me over the next videos as we see the cost of following Jesus.

Today’s Bible verse;
Matt 16: 24-25

24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

Other Reference verses; Mark 8:34 & Luke 9:23

Have a lovely week ahead!

One thing to do to spoil your wife

Happy wife, Happy life – Unknown We naturally put our best foot forward before we get married and after you get married, things begin to sizzle out because we are not putting in as much effort as we did in the beginning. It is equally as important after you get married to keep the fire burning. It it the duty of both parties to ensure that they do the work it entails. First let’s talk about our attitude as a couple towards spoiling each other; Do not spoil the other person with the expectation of reciprocity. Do what you have …

Why do we wait till it’s over?

Welcome back

Some people are suffering and you’ll never know because they suffer in silence Hello People, Today, I have a question. I understand that life is in phases and we go through different things at different times in this journey of life. What I am curious about is why we wait till the “worst” is over before we can talk about the not so pleasant things that happen to us. I see it happen alot and I experience it too.

Our responsibility to the needy

“The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others” I was raised by a woman who understands her responsibilities to the less privileged. By watching her live her life, I learnt that there was nothing that was too big or too small to give, there was no little way to serve other people around me, she said this in Yoruba “Ko to nkan lo’n so eyan di ahun” (Saying it’s not much makes someone selfish) which make nothing too small to give. Over time, I have also seen the life of …

Challenge Update/ My Weekend

Hello People, How are you guys doing? First of all, I would like to say a big “Thank you” for all the feedbacks i’ve gotten since starting this writing challenge. I started this challenge because I wanted to be consistent, the ideas I had in my head at the time didn’t translate to what was on my blog and I wanted that to change. I needed to be more disciplined and stopped thinking that since the blog was “Mine” I could do as I pleased. I know better now. The last 16 days have been exciting and although I have 12 posts …

4 Often Misquoted Bible Verses

And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself. Luke 24:27   For a very long time my relationship with the Bible was through the eyes of someone else, what they preached, how they understood it and their interpretation of the Bible. I listened to alot of preachers at the time but it wasn’t like I followed them hook, line and sinker but I definitely was swayed by whatever wind of doctrine my favourite speaker at the time was preaching to me but for some reason somethings just …

Music & Hope

” Music can change the world because it can change people.” ~ Bono, U2~ The most significant memory I have of music playing a huge role in giving me hope was during my NYSC year in my one room in the small town of Kontagora. That period was probably the lowest point of my life and I had just started to recognise God’s love towards me and having a budding love for him too. I had a playlist of more than 100 gospel songs that were shuffled and on repeat for more than half the time. Singing along to the …

How to transform his bachelor pad to a home

Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do… but how much love we put in that action. – Mother Teresa I have never really considered myself a homemaker. Being domestic is one of my least favourite things to do, but when I do set my mind to doing domestic chores, I put in my best. So, definitely I am not qualified to be giving profession home designing advise but this is what worked for me as a new wife thrown into the domestic deep end by her husband. You see, my husband placed so much expectation …
