DID GOD REALLY SPEAK TO YOU?

Recently, Lawrence Oyor came out on facebook to declare that he was no longer single and that all the sisters already carrying divine leading in their hearts for him should look elsewhere. ‘This boy is not single!!’ Lawrence announced. You’d be surprised that some sisters will still not give up. It’s then you’ll start hearing words like ‘I heard God!’ ‘I’m very sure of what God said to me.’...

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU CAN’T GET OVER A BREAKUP

I loved my ex very much. At the time we were together, I believed without any doubt that he was the one I was going to spend the rest of my life with. He was a fine young man with such determination to succeed. He didn’t just blab about creating a good life for himself. He lived it. Apart from the fact that we were deeply in love with each other, we were great friends. But then it happened. We...

WHEN THE DESIRE TO HAVE SEX BECOMES OVERWHELMING

Recently, I published an article on How to control your sexual urges as a Christian single. It is a detailed post that proffers practical guidance when it comes to making the right decisions with our bodies as Christians. Few weeks after publishing that article, another salient question arose in my heart after counselling a young lady on this issue. How can a believer handle the desire to respond...

SINGLENESS IS A GIFT: HERE’S HOW TO ENJOY IT

Years back, I didn’t see any usefulness in being a single lady. All my thoughts were focused on how to find a man to settle down with. If you ask me what to expect in my quest to get married, I didn’t know beyond romance and having to bear the tag ‘wife.’ and ‘mother.’ But I know better now. I understand to an extent that marriage comes with responsibilities and commitment. I see that my mental...

HOW TO CONTROL YOUR SEXUAL URGES AS A CHRISTIAN SINGLE

Sometime ago, a sister approached me with concerns about her sexuality. She wondered why although she is deliberate about her walk with God, she still has a strong urge for sex. When I smiled and told her I had sexual desires too and that these desires were God-given and normal, she was greatly relieved. When you ask some Christian singles, ‘have you at any point felt like having sex?’ the look...

DEAR BISOLA

Dear Bisola, I miss you. Right now, I’m on my bed thinking of you and wondering when you’ll return from your trip to Kunshawa. It’s been five days since I heard your sweet voice. Fine, I know you told me to expect a break in communication but I can’t imagine I’ll not be able to talk to you for another two weeks. Which of the villages have you moved to now? When will...

A PARTNER THAT CHASES AFTER GOD

Towards the end of last year, I was confused about a certain area of my life’s purpose. I knew what God wanted me to do with my life but I was stuck somewhere in the middle. For days, I prayed for clarity and sought God’s direction. Everything seemed blurred. You remember how Jesus touched the eyes of that blind man and he saw men like trees? That was how it was for me. I knew I was close to my...

NOT ALL HEARTS ARE MADE OF STONE

Written by Ife-Grace My life fell to pieces when Abigail died. I had been at work when her mother called to tell me she had been rushed to the hospital. I ran out of the office immediately but before I got to the hospital, she was gone. I didn’t even get the chance to say goodbye. Abigail’s husband, Tunde, was sitting with some of the patients in the passage when I came out of the doctor’s office...

CAN A BELIEVER FIND A LIFE PARTNER ON SOCIAL MEDIA?

At the moment I’m reading Francine Rivers latest book, ‘The Masterpiece.’ This is the second time I’ll be reading it and this time, I noticed some details I missed out at the first. Anyway, I got to this part where the friends of the main character, Grace, registered her on a christian dating site without her consent. In another part of town, some of the youth members of a...

IT’S MORE THAN A WEDDING

I was at my friend’s place when she showed me a picture of her parent’s wedding. We laughed at the way they stood together in the most ridiculous attire ever.  It wasn’t their choice to come out that way but that was what they could afford at that time. Their struggle story is not what I want to share now. I have had opportunities to live with this couple who are now married for 33years and the...
