Letting go the promises

.others let themselves be cruelly attacked, having no desire to go free, so that they might have a better life to come.(Heb 11:35)

Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. (2 Pet 1:4)

God has graciously given us all things to freely and richly enjoy, He’s promised us blessings in every area of life, there’s no field his Word does not apply, no region it does not affect. It is His will that we believe, appropriate and enjoy these good promises He has given us. It is our rightful inheritance in faith, being blessed with Father Abraham.

Sickness need no longer plague us because the promise of healing is given in the Word.

Poverty need no longer plague us because the promise of abundance is given in the Word.

Death need no longer cut us short again because the promise of long life is given in the Word.Read More »

Making New Memories

Sometimes we have seasons in our lives that feel like gold, we don’t always realize it but we soon do after those seasons, and the memories and experiences become a treasure to us, it could be our days in school, our previous place of residence, our childhood friends, when we joined the football team, the crazy friends around us or the attention of our romantic interest.
Those days put the fun in funny and we love reminiscing over them, with pictures and albums to flip over and temporarily zap back to them good ole days.

But life is actually for living today, not reliving yesterday, no matter how great it was. Don’t get lost in your past stories, your Alma matter or secondary school crush. Get up and go out and make new memories. Learn the art of letting go, pursue the next big thing, stay excited, let the time of your life be every time of your life!

Join a club, volunteer in an NGO, make new friends, connect back with old friends, adopt a kid, start a business, ask her out, eat an entire chicken, do something, do something good and make new memories. Don’t join those guys who can only tell you what happened 20 years ago, tell us what happened last week, tell us what happened today! You’re not old enough to be only telling us stories, tell us visions. Show us the wounds of attempt gotten today, not just the scars of years back.

Life is too exciting to live in yesterday, everyday offers an opportunity of new incredible memories, if you miss you buddies of old too much, organize a reunion and make new memories. Because sometimes old memories and achievements are like the chaff that accumulates from your flame; if not cleared, it can actually snuff the present flame.
It sounds simple and it really is, you might be saying if you know how awesome it was, I’m saying if you know how awesome it’s going to be! Because this path shines brighter and brighter like the rising sun.

Quieting Your Soul

I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child (resting) with his mother

psalm 131:2

I remember a funny experience I had as a child, my parents had just finished whipping me for some misdeed I had probably fiendishly committed, I was pouring out tears from both eyes as I pampered my aching bottom. I entered the bathroom to freshen up and on looking at the mirror I saw my sweaty face and reddened tear emitting eyes, I was looking horrible and feeling so too. A strange thought came to my mind “how would you look if you smiled with the way you look and feel?”. I indulged the thought and smiled at myself facing the mirror, it felt weird to be smiling but it also felt empowering, that it was in my power to keep smiling and I kept smiling.Read More »

An Acquired Taste

                            Though art my portion o Lord … Psalms 119 : 57

An interesting account came up about sharks on National Geographic, in a certain area
the number of shark attacks in a single year multiplied drastically to a point of the area
being labeled unsafe, investigations were carried out on why the sudden rise of shark
attacks, generally speaking shark attacks on humans are more on the rarer side. One of
the theories that came up was that perhaps the sharks had acquired a taste for human,
maybe one or two sharks had gotten a good bite on some juicy humans and decided
that human should be added to their food menu on a permanent basis.Read More »

Drawing Deep Waters From Shallow Wells

Insight & understanding from the mundane

I remember back in my early teens when I was just beginning to really take note of the things of God, I was watching a movie in the living room with my elder sister who was more seasoned christian than myself, at some point in the movie she turns to me and begins to point out (while the movie was still playing) how certain scenes expressed certain truths, how the hero stood like this, and how an action scene depicted this spiritual truth, and how that part of the movie was analogous to this area of life, and how what the villain said revealed that and on and on she went, getting more visibly excited as she spoke, so excited she was that she started bubbling in tongues here and there like the latest drunken Pentecostal on the street. I remember looking at her agape, my eyes oscillating between her and the action movie on the television and wondering how on earth is she seeing all this from this movie? It’s not even a Christian movie!Read More »

Spiritual Parenting 101

Judges 13:8-13, Gen 18:19
The privilege to have a child comes with the responsibility of raising the child aright.
Children are good gifts from God, they are not a means to our selfish ends, they are not
an extension of our personalities, they are not investments for our latter years, they are
not symbols of our social status, they are not means to accomplish the dreams or goals
we never could or paths to correct our mistakes of the past, they are in themselves
unique, special and individual souls, gifts from God to us, not necessarily for us and as
such every parent becomes a co-laborer with God in accomplishing His purpose for that
individual child.Read More »

Identity

who are you?

This simple question is perhaps one of the most difficult question to answer, simply because they can be so many true answers; I’m a human, I’m tall, I’m a Norwegian, I’m a lover of chocolate, I’m a fan of Arsenal FC, I’m a doctor, I’m a world changer, all these might be true but is that the truth of who you are?Read More »
