Let’s talk about speaking in tongues

My first experience with speaking in tongues has to be Foursquare Children’s Camp. Teenagers Camp was an annual retreat for teens for all the branches of the Church in Nigeria, I really cannot remember the schedule but I know different branches of churches in Lagos were together at the same time. It was always I time of learning of God’s word, fellowship, making new friends (Hi Seun) and hopefully a sort of Spiritual experience. Going to camp was a part of my childhood, from Children’s camp to Teenagers Camp to Youth Camp. It was always quite the experience. This particular …

Life lately: I am reviving my blog

*wipes cobwebs* *dusts chair and table* I always laugh at people when I go to their blogs 6 months later and the last post is “I’m back” just typing this makes me laugh. So, I am back and not planning to go anywhere this time. I recently decided to go to my old blogs and I noticed that I was actually a consistent blogger once in my life. I know seasons have changed in my life but occasionally the love for the art keeps drawing me back and I usually feel like I am “left behind” in this fast paced …

What I did when I knew my marriage was over

marriage-over-counter-culture

“I Do” “In Sickness and in health” “For better for worse” “For richer for poorer” “As long as you both shall live” “I do”   These were the vows I made before God and man. They felt like just mere words at the altar because my feet hurt from the heels and I really just wanted to get it over with as I am not a big fan of getting all the attention.

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!

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 …

I heard my president speak…

“Good governance is less about structure and rules than being focused, effective and accountable.” ― Pearl Zhu, Hello My people! It’s Day 3! OMG… I am actually doing this. LOL. Don’t let me get too excited. How are you all enjoying the Independence holiday? ************************************************************************************************************************ I am not one to always have an opinion about our beloved country. I have little or no interest in current affairs and I am always the one laughing at heated arguments about the country when 2 people are going at each other, it might be safe to say that I am not passionate about …

Happy New October || Blog Challenge

Hello my people! We are officially in the 10th month of the year 2016. Happy New October!!!! It sometimes feels like the year is breezing by but other times everything seems so slow… We can’t complain though, we can only be grateful to God for his sustaining grace and mercy towards us. I am kinda excited about this month because I want to challenge myself. The last time i tried doing a challenge on facebook, I failed! I know my biggest problem is consistency and I didn’t want to call this an “official Challenge” so as not to set myself …

4 Lessons from binge watching Agents of Shield

About a week or 2 ago, I was in a funk and opening up to my husband about it. He then goes ahead to say “Remember in Agents of shield, when blah blah blah” I can’t really remember the exact example he gave to help me understand his point that was to make me feel better in that moment, what I do remember afterwards was me saying to myself “How did he get all that from the show” *Insert wide eyes here*   You see, both of us had been watching the show together and only one of us learnt …

Dear Christian: Hard truth I wish someone told me earlier

Dear Christian, How are you doing this week? How is everything going? I read an article recently and honestly I became sad and decided to write this. I believe we need to conduct ourselves better and by better I mean like Christ.  These are a few things I wish someone told me very early on. Get off your high horse; Have we ever thought about how the world sees us (as Christians) by Google search here is a list; Judgemental Rude Selfish… Does that not even contradict the term “Like Christ”. God has indeed sent us into the world but the very …
