Have Confidence

  Moses didn’t believe in himself. He didn’t have confidence in his abilities. He even begged and argued with God to use someone else. But eventually he gave in, allowed God to use him, and because of that he was used to save millions of people from slavery. But it took overcoming insecurity to be […]

My Letter to The Marriage Counselor

Dear Church Marriage Counselor, I would have had you at least partly to blame because of your shabby counseling sessions about a decade ago if my marriage was problematic today. (Thank God we sought and are seeking knowledge via other means before and after the wedding which seemed to have been your focus back then). […]

A Special Kind of Love

  There is an odd truth concerning love and marriage. Understanding it is an important key in making marriage and other relationships work. The truth is this: we don’t have the ability to really love without the power of the Holy Spirit working through us. Our capacity to love is based on God giving us […]

In Time of Great Need

  Reading a particular verse of Scripture was such a soothing balm to my soul at a point when I was grossly overwhelmed by difficulty and I thought I should encourage you today with the same encouragement I have received. First, here is the Scriptural verse: O Lord, now I have heard your report, and […]

Different From the Rest

Let me put a saying by nineteenth-century churchman Horace Bushnell in the language of marriage: “No married couple is ever called to be another. God has as many plans for married couples as He has couples; and, therefore, He never requires them to measure their life by any other couple.” You comprise one-half of a […]

The Push

I once lived in a house where the bathroom design had a little hitch. The problem was that whenever I had a bath in the bathroom, the water would not flow towards the drainage; the bath water usually gathered at a particular spot without showing any intention of flowing towards the drainage. I usually used […]

Before you say, “I do”

There are things that every single person needs to know and do before they say “I do” to that person they wish to spend the rest of their lives with, but usually are ignored. Laying the right foundation for your marriage is essential for having a successful marriage. The information in this video is not […]

The Inner Circle

There are varying degrees of allowance given to people when it comes to having access to people in positions of authority. Imagine wanting to meet with the president of the country for something very important; you can imagine what it would cost you to get an appointment booked. Even if you are a professor in […]

MONEY IS GOOD

Hey, money gives you options! Don’t let anyone fool you. Poverty doesn’t make you a saint or a hero of heaven. It makes you miserable, self-centered, a sufferer and self-preoccupied. The more you operate in abundant living, the more you become more likely to be free, more useful, other-minded and a grateful vessel for His […]

God Or Gold?

One day, I walked into our family doctor’s office shortly after the release of my first book, THE BEAUTIFUL BRANCH and I am reminded of an incidence that occurred that day. He had requested some copies which he intended giving out as gifts to some of his church members and I had gone to deliver […]

Time and Chance

“Guess what happened to me on my way here today”, George yelled at the top of his voice. He had barged into Femi’s living room without knocking. “What happened? Is that the way to say hello, by the way?” Femi quizzed. “I am sorry guy. Hello. I practically fled here to let you in on […]

Who Do You Let Into Your Ship?

  While running my Master’s degree programme, I lived in one of the school hostels. The block adjacent ours was occupied by some guys. There was a particular room on that block, where the occupants were always blasting music anytime there was electric power supply. One day, I just started humming one of the songs […]

Disguised Blessing

I was traveling interstate one day and when I got to the park, I asked a woman if the seat beside her was already occupied by someone or not; I felt that the seat would be a comfortable one for me considering the location. The woman answered me in the affirmative, so I decided to […]

Rebirth 3

“Your earned gift is a job in my company, Regale Insurance Plc.” Fadeke’s eyes widened upon hearing that and repeatedly said “Thank you sir; Thank you so much sir”, joined by her mother; until Mr Smith said to her, “You earned it.” “Immediately I saw you step out to the podium to give your valedictory […]

Communicate and Take Dressing

I will like to share with you two incidences that occurred in my marriage; to let you know or further reiterate to you how important communication is in relationships and how you should react to sensitive issues when raised. The first incidence: There was a lady who was really close to my husband. They’d been […]

Rebirth 2

Wait a minute, what is that your surname again?” Mr Smith asked, facing Fadeke. “Olanrewaju, sir!” Fadeke answered with a broad smile on her face. “That’s like a rhetorical question though,” Mr Smith said as he laughed out loud. “I heard the name while you were being called out earlier to receive your award, in […]

Trade By Barter?

I was in a store to buy some cake baking ingredients sometime last year, and the store owner and her daughter, who obviously had just returned from school were acting a fun script while the store assistant picked out the stuff I requested for. The daughter brought out twenty naira from her pocket saying that […]

WHATEVER THE CASE

Reading the book of Philippians this morning brought great encouragement to my heart and I thought to share with you something from my gleanings. . . In the fourth chapter of that Book, Apostle Paul recounted how he was familiar with living through lack and plenty. He had learnt to manage the high and low […]
