Finding Purpose

He definitely wants us to lean on Him and depend on Him fully, irrespective of our circumstances. Our dependence is evidence of our faith and reliance. It says that we need Him. And because we need Him, we will seek Him, and with all our heart. And when we do this, we find Him, and He is pleased with us.

Tenacity of our faith

Today, we, the children of Abraham are uncountable, innumerable, like the sand at the sea shore. All over the world, we exist. In the nooks and crannies of the world, we exist. And every moment there are being added to the church, such as are to be saved! 

So even if you were to count today, can you get them all? Between the time you start counting and the time you finish, there are being added, such as are to be saved, by the minute and by the second!!! To God be the glory!!!

Adultery…

It is a no holds barred society that we have here. Anything goes. We used to accuse the ‘oyinbos’ of being promiscuous; they have no values, they kiss in public etc.

In today’s Nigeria, especially in Lagos and other major cities, nude bars abound, strip clubs, high class prostitution dens. Nobody bats an eyelid. Nobody talks about them.

I read an article once in the newspapers, written by a like-minded man, asking parents the question – do you know what your daughter living in Abuja is up to? The man went on to reveal the activities of our politicians and rich contractors who throw money around in Abuja and how they ‘capture’ the greed of young, female Youth Corpers who were posted to spend their service year in Abuja.

What’s Up?

It can be amazing how fast time flies by and you find yourself running to catch up. I was talking about how March arrived overnight, when New Year’s Day felt like yesterday. In the past few days, I have had to ask myself, ‘What’s up?’, when it felt like there were not enough hours in the day.

How To Fail Or Not

If you are in school or taking classes, it is very easy to fail.Just don’t attend classes and don’t study anything. You are guaranteed to fail. But if you want to succeed, you have to attend classes religiously, actually listen to the lecturer, take notes, ask questions, read up, work on assignments, submit by the deadline, prepare for tests and exams! It takes a whole lot of work to succeed. You have to sweat. You have to work. It doesn’t come easy.

Be Anxious For Nothing…

Acts 17:26-27 talks about how God created the nations from one man and decides when nations should rise and fall. He is the Ultimate King Maker and Ruler of Nations. So we have confidence that all things will work out for Nigeria at the end of the day. We believe He definitely has a plan for Nigeria and His counsel will stand and His will done exactly as He has planned it.

The Countdown Begins!

Our hopes are up. We hope that this time around, the voting actually takes place. Then, we wait for the outcome. Generally, there is a strong sense of hope and anticipation. We are not discouraged.

Life’s Uncertainties

Such was the excitement and anticipation with which we went to bed on Friday, February 15, 2019, only to wake up the next morning to hear news of postponement! I got a text message on my phone around 5.30 a.m. saying the elections had been postponed.

Why Pain?

Surely, nobody enjoys suffering or wants to suffer. However, if we are to objectively consider the history of Christianity, we would discover that the records show tremendous and lasting pain experienced by professing Christians through the ages. Why then would we expect our Christianity to be pain and trouble free?
