    Day 27: Ibukunoluwa #28DayChallenge

    Today’s post is for my second son, Samuel Ibukunoluwa. Almost two years ago, I wrote and posted a poem for my first son, Lemuel Ayomide, who was a little over a year old at the time. You can read it here. Now I have written one for Samuel who turns 1 in a few days […]

    Day 17: Following God into the Future #28DayChallenge

    The future: that imaginary place where all our problems are solved and our dreams are fulfilled. The younger we are, the more excited we are about the future. It holds so much promise and possibility that we can barely wait to get there. We make plans and write lists and take steps to get to […]

    Day 13: Friday, Good? #28DayChallenge

    Good Friday. Was it really good? Definitely not for Jesus or his followers, whose long-awaited Messiah was crucified by the authorities. A little search on the internet suggested that the origin of the word “Good” is an old English word which means “Holy”. If this is correct, then it would be more appropriate to think […]

    Day 3: The Friend #28DayChallenge

    Thanks for coming by today! This is Day 3 of my 28-Day writing challenge. Today, I want to talk a bit about friendships.

  • Does God Understand?

    Does God Understand?

    Does Jesus really understand my struggles? Can he actually relate when I am torn between choices or struggling to obey God’s will? Does it make sense to Him or does He shake his head in disdain as I start to lean towards wrong choices? How do I receive His grace?

  • Songs in the Night

    Songs in the Night

    “People cry out under a load of oppression; they plead for relief from the arm of the powerful. But no one says, ‘Where is God my Maker, who gives songs in the night, who teaches us more than he teaches the beasts of the earth and makes us wiser than the birds in the sky?’ […]

  • To Break a Man

    To Break a Man

    No man was ever too hard for God’s Love to breakOnly by everlasting wisdom does He decide in Himself Who in His mercy He would draw to come see the LightAnd who in judgment He forsakes to depths of darknessIn the mire of his sins and hardness of his heartGod would easily convert the wicked […]

  • The One

    The One

    God often takes action in pursuit of one soul. He would turn a nation inside out and stir the hearts of many preachers, leading them over mountains and into valleys, just to save one soul. He would overturn the laws of nature and break the protocols of men to make a point to one man […]

  • Pure Hearts

    Pure Hearts

    “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God”. This statement is as simple as it is deep. There is a common saying that “we do not see things as they are; we see them as we are”. This is consistent with Scripture. Titus 1:15 reads, “To the pure, all things are pure…”. […]
