Dear Dad,

Back in high school we were taught letter writing. We learned the different types which consisted of formal and informal letters. Writing to loved ones was informal. Some of us were asked to write to our fathers and we started the letter by saying Dear dad. Continue reading

Life, Your Movie

I once saw a meme of a guy saying to himself, “What if this world and its happening were just a demo video being played by God for Adam and Eve to show them the consequences of eating the forbidden fruit. It got me laughing and thinking at the same time. A lot of people have several views of life. Some say life is a race, some say it’s a battlefield, some say it’s a journey, some call it a market place and some have described it as a football field, etc. But have you ever thought of life as a movie or a best seller novel, and not just that but also with you as the main character or “actor” as Nigerians normally say?

HACKSAW RIDGE

Please Lord help me get one more!

Those were the words that Pfc. Desmond Doss kept repeating as he rescued his fellow soldiers behind enemy lines. Doss enlisted as a soldier during World War II but was ostracized by his colleagues due to his pacifist beliefs and stance. He later went on to earn the respect of his colleagues and superiors for his bravery, selflessness and compassion after he risked his life to save 75 men in the Battle of Okinawa. Desmond Doss became the first conscientious objector to receive the Medal of Honour—America’s highest award for courage under fire.

GUILTY

guilty

Yes, I am guilty as charged.

I wonder how many readers of this blog have asked themselves if I live what I preach. And like Paul too, I pray daily that I would not be a cast away after preaching to people. This becomes very important because the Bible makes us understand that many would be cast away on the last day after they have raised the dead, healed the sick, and did all sorts in God’s name. Isn’t that tragic? Continue reading

FREE?

A lot of people are familiar with the saying “knowledge is power”. But I’m yet to hear that a biology textbook cured headache, or even the Bible raise the dead. In essence, , ownership of books do not  guarantee power or victory. What guarantees victory or power is the application of the information in these books. That’s why a pauper can pass an examination reading borrowed  books while a prince who has owns  the same books would  fail the same exam. Ownership isn’t key, application is!

50 SHADES OF GRACE

Grace, what is it?

Its definitions vary from; God’s ability in man’s inability, God-in man’s-Race, divine partiality in humanity, unmerited favour, God’s endless mercies etc. All these definitions have defined grace very accurately, and many of us can relate to at least one of these definitions. Grace isn’t just all these definitions but grace is also God’s character.

Have you ever looked at a situation in your life and then you say that could only have been you Jesus?

At times you write a test and you know that what you wrote down should give you a D and at most a C, but results come out and it’s an A. Continue reading

YOLO

When hashtag Y-O-L-O trended I was caught up in the frenzy and lived my life to the fullest since there was only one to live. The words crept into my subconscious that I didn’t mind anything again and so I hustled to earn a living, make money so I could just enjoy it all. “Nothing else mattered anymore”, not even church services or my fellowship. Why waste time at those quiet and “sane” places when I could spend time partying and hanging out with friends. I had better take all the risk today because I might be gone tomorrow. Besides only God knows those that would make it to heaven! Continue reading
