What A Wonderful World!

Because God is still God, we know for sure, this is not the end. A new day will dawn where COVID-19 will be a thing of the past. It will happen soon. This is the time to prepare for that day. Keep hope alive. Set your sites on the future to come. Look beyond the now. Look beyond the darkness and see light. The promise of a better tomorrow. That is our hope. We have hope in God and we believe that this season will pass.

Hang In There!

In the midst of the lockdown, economic crises, sickness, and death, let us lift up our eyes to the only one who can save us, to the One True God. He hears us when we call. Pray for an end to this invasion. Pray for His light to come to dispel this darkness. Pray for His healing to flow through the nations. Pray that these days will not be unduly prolonged. We have to keep praying, even when we don’t feel like it.

Spring Ahoy!

In these times of fear, sickness, and death, there is a tendency to focus on the events around us. It is not good news anywhere in the world. Those who are well are fearful of catching a highly contagious COVID-19. Those who are sick are fearful of death. It is not farfetched, for all around us, we hear of sickness, of death on a daily basis and in huge numbers. Every news media carries the sad news. You can hardly avoid it.

What Then Shall We Say To These Things?

But once in a while, I fear. When I read a post on social media, or watch a video. Or listen to the news on TV. I feel the panic going through my mind. What do I do? One thing that has helped and is helping, is keeping my mind on God. I look up a worship program on YouTube and I just sing along, exalting the majesty of God. Or I look for a sermon on the power of God and just listen. When I lift up the ability of God, my fear disappears.

Panic vs. Peace

We are not supposed to panic or be fearful. We know that God is still on His throne and He is totally aware of these events. This is a time to exercise our faith. To look at the facts and hold on to the truth of God’s promises.

Celebrating Women!

I’m glad that these things are changing now. Things are definitely better than they were twenty years ago. The battle rages on though because there are still some elements that would not mind a reversal of all grounds gained. So we have to keep pushing, striving, pressing and not giving up.

March On!

The past month was quite interesting. I had some good times and some not so good. It’s usually in February that the first challenge to our goals and aspirations comes. The initial zeal and fire of January get burnt out in February and except we are able to push through it, everything extraordinary stops there. Life returns to normal and all the things we had resolved to do get forgotten in the humdrum of routine and daily life.

The Encouragement You Need

We’re knocking down another month. It’s only a few days to the end of February. Then, it will be March, the last month of the first quarter. Wow! Let’s get kicking! This is the time to review goals again and see what you need to do on a daily basis to achieve them. Even if you have been distracted like me, don’t worry.  Just get back on track. Resume your race. Refocus and keep moving. It’s not over until it’s over. Get going!

Harmattan In The Air?

My feet get dusty, but I can cope with that. Most roads are easier to drive on. At least you can see clearly how deep the potholes are! Harmattan is in the air!

Something else in the air in this season is love! Eros particularly. Some share phileo or agape as well, but the reigning king right now is eros. A lot of planning is going into preparation for tomorrow’s celebrations. In Lagos, it is quite a drama. I have made it a point of duty not to step out of my house on Valentine’s Day because the traffic is horrible.
