WHEN GOD RESTRAINS YOU FROM MAKING THAT MOVE

One of the most powerful statements I’ve read came from a title to a blog post by one very amazing blogger. Remain where you heard God last. Those words are heavy, I tell you. For several seconds I couldn’t even click on the link to the post, I just kept staring and pondering on the title. By the way, you should check out Dupe’s blog. She has wonderful contents there. You know, It’s so hard when...

20 POWERFUL BIBLE VERSES TO MEDITATE ON THIS EASTER

At a particular time in every year, Christians all over the world celebrate an event called, Easter. It is a time where the redemption story is told.

WHAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL NOT DO FOR YOU

In December, I stepped away from the blog so I could plan for the coming year. When the new year arrived and I sensed it was time to get back to work, I started giving excuses. Second week, third week…. I sat there, believing it was God who wanted me not to take a move yet when I knew deep down that I was just lazy to pen down anything serious. What I should have done was, take laziness by...

3 POWERFUL WAYS TO MAKE 2020 YOUR BEST YEAR EVER

I don’t think it’s too early to set the pace for 2020. In fact I believe this is the best time to start activating our thought process for the new year rather than wait for the adrenaline that comes with the arrival of the first day in the year where we all scream and jump for joy and make resolutions and after a few weeks the excitement dies down. We can set 2020 in motion even now. As...

HOW TO DEAL WITH SOCIAL MEDIA ADDICTION AND PURSUE SPIRITUAL GROWTH

Can our minds ever get quiet? Pressing this thing called phone was my hobby. If my phone could talk, it’d have screamed, ‘Leave me alone for a day please!’ For many of us, our phones have become part of our lives. At work, in church, in the bus, on the dining table and even on the road, our eyes are glued to our phones. We have fallen into gutters, gone past our bus stops, gone late to work...

HOW TO DEAL WITH LOW SELF-ESTEEM GOD’S WAY

A little girl attends her first day in a new school. A boy sneers at her and says, ‘You are fat like a buffalo.’ The class bursts into laughter. The girl rushes into the restroom to weep while the boy who is himself battling abandonment from home feels cool at the attention he receives from his classmates. These are all a bunch of Grade 4 pupils. That statement never gets out of the little girl’s...

ARE YOU UNDER THE LAW OR IN CHRIST

Some years ago, I had a misconception about the law of Moses. I believed that the law in itself,-ceremonial, moral laws- was evil and deadly. Not until I stumbled on Romans 7:12. Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good. Romans 7:12 That scripture made me realize that there was nothing sinful with the laws of Moses given on Mount Sinai. However, at the time those...

I WANT YOU: A SHORT STORY

On this particular night, Yetunde went for a prayer vigil. The venue of the meeting was her prayer partner’s house. She left behind her husband, Yemi, a 22 year old spiritual daughter and two kids. Her spiritual daughter, Opeoluwa, has a very beautiful body. Front-set. Back- enormous. Hips-on point. Face-attractive. The kids were fast asleep while Ope washed the dishes that night. She had...

HOW TO BECOME ADDICTED TO THE SECRET PLACE

Last year, I asked my blogging mentor a question. Something was happening to me in my journey as a blogger and I wanted to know if she was experiencing the same situation as I was. Here’s the question paraphrased. ‘Esther, is blogging addictive or am I the only one feeling restless and starved when I’ve not blogged in a week?’ If I hadn’t scribbled down something in a day for my blog, I was not...

WHAT ARE YOU AFRAID OF? OVERCOMING THE SPIRIT OF FEAR

Few months ago, I lost a friend to cancer. From the moment the news got to me, I wasn’t myself for the next two weeks. I was psychologically affected. I had so many questions running through my mind. How could this have happened to a young vibrant lady? Why is cancer just ruining people’s lives like this? What guarantee do I have that I’d live till old age? The devil made serious attempt to mess...
