  • Give Thanks!

    Give Thanks!

    Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus (I Thess. 5:18, NIV) Today, I want to send you a quick reminder for a very important Christian attitude: giving thanks! Giving thanks refers to speaking words of appreciation to someone for something they have done (or will do) – […]

  • Through It All

    Through It All

    The last few days have been difficult for a lot of Nigerians. The #EndSARS protests which started as a spontaneous reaction to police brutality became a wildfire that spread across several cities of the nation. Hoodlums began to take advantage of the protests to wreak havoc, leading to a worrisome security situation. Sadly, on the […]

  • Covered by Love

    Covered by Love

    The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.” (Jeremiah 31:3) Here I am, lying in quiet contemplationAs you gently serenade my soulWith lyrics sung to an eternal tune.You speak peace to my stormsAnd bring an end to my fears.Your words stir my lukewarm soulAnd […]

  • Altars and Wells

    Altars and Wells

    One common thread we quickly observe as we journey through the story of the Jewish patriarchs – Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob – is their devotion to basic principles that underpin their lives. These men were primarily farmers, owning and raising livestock as well as cultivating the ground. And they were often on the move in […]

  • I Judge Him Faithful

    I Judge Him Faithful

    By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised. Hebrews 11:11 Somewhere between God’s promise and its performance is the necessity of faith, or the act of believing and acting on what God said. While God’s promises are […]

  • Thirty-Two – The Encounter

    Thirty-Two – The Encounter

    Yesterday, I turned thirty-two. By design, I was off work – I definitely like to take some vacation days around my birthday to rest and reflect on the past and the future. So, once again, happy birthday to me! For the past few weeks, I have been reading from the book of Genesis, one chapter […]

  • Days of our Youth

    Days of our Youth

    Hallos! Thank you for coming by. The last few days have been quite busy for me – trying to keep up with work and catch up with other commitments. Who said working from home was easy anyway? Far from it! I put in far more hours than an average day at the office. Right now, […]

  • Death and Debtors

    Death and Debtors

    Today has been sad. I received two messages – one from a friend and the other from a colleague. The friend told me about a debt he’s being owed – and how the debtor is playing games with him instead of being sincere. The colleague told me about the death of another colleague, a lively […]

  • Finding Rest

    Finding Rest

    Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. (Matt. 11:28-29, NIV) Life gets busy, super busy. Sometimes, it’s just one area of […]

  • I Believe God

    I Believe God

    Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness. (Gen 15:6, NIV) The combined simplicity and depth of this verse amazes me. We often think of God as having great expectations of us, and he does. But what we think of as great may not be God’s idea of great. God speaks to […]
