Last night I encountered a scorpion in my room. Yes, a big one just in case you were wondering.
Am currently undergoing my National Youth Service Corps so I am in Osun state, Nigeria. Am not even in the rural areas so I have no idea what a huge scorpion would be doing in my room late in the night. So am grateful to God that we saw it on time, that it didn’t sting me or any other person in the room and that we killed it on time. I don’t know what my family would have heard but God delivered me. For that and everything else He does for me without my knowing, I am taking out time today to say Father thank you. Continue reading “Am grateful for….”→
I take a lollipop when I need a burst of energy. I like that it is chic and goes with any style any day. With the end of the stick outside my mouth, I become a child again.
When the thoughts of my head become too much to bear, it is a welcomed and delight-some distraction. It takes away the worries and makes me feel like a child again.
I know I am all grown up and I probably should quit acting like a child. But what can I say when my Bible tells me that “Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven”.
And again, “Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven”.
I guess then that being a child again is a good thing. Especially a cherished child of God. I will remind myself of these bible truths when next I take a lollipop.
I don’t really like to write about personal “stuff”, but I will make an exception today and besides, as the saying goes, rules are meant to be broken. Right?
Anyways, a set of people, more like a set of people from a movie got me thinking. I know right, am a visual person, I learn a lot from videos and movies things that would naturally take me eons to learn any other way. So they got me into this reality check up, I needed to face the truth squarely in the face anyway. Continue reading “A Poor Small Nobody”→
What is? I guess that is probably the question on your mind or maybe you were thinking something else?
Well, I saw a movie yesterday that got me thinking.
Now in my book Pride, I said pride is when we trust in ourselves and not in God. And why would trusting ourselves be easy? Because we think we know ourselves and would rather trust in our abilities and strength, not God whom we know nothing about, not to mention that as the Bible puts it, His ways are higher than ours. Most people who would want to trust Him to be there for them find it very frustrating and difficult because of this and therefore cut Him off altogether. Continue reading “All Yours?”→
Several months ago, our nephew lost a long battle with depression and addiction at the young age of 32. It is not something I could imagine being able to survive, but my sister-in-law bravely took to the podium to talk about his life and referred to this piece by Linda Ellis. She spoke of the dash between his dates of birth and death and told us the story of his life in a moving and beautiful way. He was not to be remembered by how he died but the dash he lived between the two dates.
The death of a loved one is always a shock to our system regardless of whether it is expected or not, whether they are young or old. Whether the person lived a full and happy life or it was cut too short, we are sad. And it lingers. But it also can serve as a wake-up…
Sometimes, what you need in the face of trying times and disappointments is to know your God and to carefully remember that He is indeed the source of your strength. Many have their strength in themselves, in the people that surround them and others in the things and the positions they have acquired in life. But what happens when you fail yourself, what happens when the people around you fail you, or what if the positions and things you have acquired fail you? Continue reading “The Lord My Strength”→
