A Conversation With God About Jollof Rice and Rejection

‘How can I hear from God?”

It’s a question friends and acquaintances have asked, I’ve asked, and clearly millions of people around the world too with books like Joyce Meyers How to Hear From God making bestseller lists time and time again.

The reason behind this our curiosity really isn’t that farfetched though ’cause life likes too dish out her share of crossroad moments every now and then.  I will never forget nights spent in my room waiting on God to say something… ANYTHING… about what my life’s Continue reading

5 Hard Lessons On Finding Purpose

You made it! See you, scaling through 2016’s first half like a pro with no slowing down in sight 🙂

As you step into the second half, it’s definitely a good idea to evaluate progress towards your short term and long term goals. Christian or non, successful people like Oprah and Steve Jobs mostly tend to be expert planners, and that’s why their lives seem to be going quite well.

From that big dream God’s laid in your heart to simply Continue reading

Getting Off My Rollercoaster – Anonymous

A few weeks ago, a close friend – who has to be one of the most animated people I know – shared a tell-all and asked me to feature it here. “To help people,” she said casually.  I think my love and admiration for her quadrupled, if that’s even possible.

Hope you’re as inspired as I was! 

***

If you do not already experience wild and unpredictable changes in your life, I am sorry to be the bearer of reality but you will sooner or later.

My rollercoaster started taking its toll on me right about this time last year, and for the most part, I managed to deal with it the best way I knew how. Depending on the situation that arose, I would either confront it firsthand, endure it or simply eat-it-out Continue reading

I Almost Died

First, it was Tunji the beggar, and now this. The on-the-bus adventures continue, featuring a special guest… my friend Lizzy 🙂

The whole thing happened earlier this month. We were on our way home after what was a ladies day out with the TWTW clan when an interesting fight broke out. An actual fistfight, with blows flying left, right and center over quivering heads of passengers (imagine if one got gobsmacked in the confusion, long before we all died :/ ).

So what exactly started it, you might ask? Continue reading

Revelations (An Easter Sunday Musing)

Once upon a time, on a small island in the middle of the sea, I wrote the words FIRST CLASS in bright, bold letters and stuck the sign by my bed for months on end.

It was my second year at uni, and my grades weren’t doing as well as I would have liked. No matter how hard I tried to crack “the code of the First”, I just was not getting it.

So I prayed, and prayed, and prayed some more.

And He came Continue reading

Why I Stopped Reading Devotionals – Tunji O.

Read on for insights from a good friend of mine, Tunji…

***

I can remember the numerous times when I left a church program feeling like I’d been reading the wrong bible (I highly doubt I’m alone here).

“Hmm, the Holy Spirit must be doing ojoro,” I would safely conclude.  I could not understand why I wasn’t discovering revelations so deep on my own.

Then one day, while I was reading a Christian book, it struck me. I realized I had been depending on daily devotionals for far too long.  It dawned on me that I was badly malnourished, and so, I set out to correct this problem.

Imagine entering a restaurant feeling very hungry, and leaving after taking Continue reading

Good or God? How to Tell the Difference

It’s a brand new year, folks!

Before I get into the nitty-gritty of things, thanks to everyone who has followed me on this journey of learning and un-learning. God has been truly awesome, and I’m super excited about what is to come.

“It doesn’t matter how good something looks, how happy it makes you, how much fun it is, how rich and successful you’ll become, how deeply spiritual it appears, how sensible it seems, how popular or accepted it is—and the list goes on and on. If something is contrary to the wisdom of God, it will ultimately be detrimental and bring sorrow to your life.” – John Bevere, Author of Good or God? Why Good without God Isn’t Enough. (Stolen from a friend’s Facebook page 🙂 )

In January 2015, I wrote an article for ThePrayingWoman.com called Mr. Right vs Mr Right Now? In summary, I reflected on this complicated thing called relationships, and how waiting for the right guy can be ridiculously Continue reading
