Choice

Will you, dearest, choose me again and forever this time?

A Bachelor’s Diary [Part 1]

I ask that you prepare me for the battle as I await my comrade.

I ask that you prepare us for each other.

I acknowledge that it is not good that I am alone.

I need a comrade suitable for me.

Friend of a Loner

Dear friend, I read your note, and I feel so glad that you expressed your feelings so clearly. I deemed it fit to respond, even though I doubt that you expected one. Yes, the world can be noisy and busy, yet there`s some calmness in it. There is love in the world; give it, and you`ll definitely receive it. Frown…

Solitude

The world is noisy and busy; I need to find some space in a corner.

The world is full of hate and envy; my little corner gives me some solace.

The world is competitive and exploitative; my aloneness seems to shield me.

Honour – Poem

Honour. a word that goes deeper than just any respect. This word means to reverence someone with high respect. To simply respect them for who they are. Not. What they do. Honour. An action that is undermined but speaks loudly to the ears of God and man. An action that only true leaders have. In it, ties humility . Your…

My value

my worth does not lie in your validation nor does it wraps itself around your perception of me. I do not have an identity crisis, I do not live at the centre of your gossip nor do I reside in your lies. My value lies in Christ my worth does not lie in my past it does not flow with…

Letter to Papa — Part 2

Letter to Papa — Part 2

I particularly remember, Papa, the day you first told me that males don`t cry. 

That was the beginning of my emotional disaster. 

I struggled to hide emotions. I was trying to “be a man”.

Learning to heal 2

In the last post, I explained what healing is ways to heal. I just want to mention that healing is important as it sets us free. Forgiving is free and it is very liberating. Holding onto grudges doesn’t help anyone and it can even affect our health. This is why healing is important. I know of many people who have…

Here I Am! Read Me

Here I am, writing the story of my life, and many more didactic stories for the sake of transformation.

Confidence in yourself and God

Written by Stephen Ifeoluwa Awoyemi The topic before me tonight is Confidence in yourself and God. I want to appreciate @Damola for the foundation already laid on this topic. She said ‘once you begin to understand your values in Christ that is when you will understand what true confidence is. Very deep stuff! Learnt a lot When I was thinking through…

Rage

Why does man’s soul rage? Like a wild beast in a cage. We seek to want to be right, In much; even at slight. But why does man’s soul rage? From the rebuke of a sage, To the act of a fool; At such and more, we lose our cool Even without these, man’s soul do rage For at our…

Anger

My name is Nihinlola Eunice Olowe, am a carrier of divine wealth and tonight I will be teaching on AngerAccording to Longman dictionary of contemporary English, Anger is a strong feeling of wanting to hurt or criticise someone because they have done something bad to you or been unkind to you. One sure fact about anger is that it is…

Trusting God

Summary of the message: My message will be based around putting our full trust in God when waiting and receiving healing. Healing in this sense can be either physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually, healing can be for anything in our lives and we may need to go through trials and tribulations to get it, but in the end, the Lord…

Who is the Holy Spirit?

Who is the Holy Spirit? The holy spirit is described as the Comforter, and in other translators, the Advocate John 14:26 New International Version (NIV) 26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. The holy spirit is…

November

November. A month of deep reflection over what one’s achieved in 2018 while looking forward to 2019. Bittersweet as it may be, but I can’t help but be grateful for God’s goodness over my life and my loved ones. Mountains crumbled and impossibilities became possible, and above all, he remained faithful. Although the days are getting darker, it doesn’t hide…

Forgiveness and Freedom

Today I will be teaching FORGIVENESS AND FREEDOM Freedom means to be liberated from something that has been oppressing or caging one down. This can be in form of physical, mental and spiritual oppression. Unforgiveness and bitterness can also be a way to a cage one down as it is described as poisoning your own self while expecting the person who…

Faith

Ephesians 5: 15-17 NIV  states: *15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is* Throughout Ephesians 5 verses 8 to 20 it spoke about how we should be different from those in the dark and the fruit…

Be Kind to Yourself

As we are in the last quatre of the month, this is when we begin to reflect on what went well during the year and what didn’t. Whether it was getting another job, graduating or even a breakup, all of these things matter. They are vital signs that you are not where you started and that you are on track.…

hard to love?

Over a month ago, I shared this on my snapchat and wanted to share it with you as I believe it is still relevant today. Be blessed as you read. Everything is by God’s grace and we don’t deserve it nor did we earn it. We receive love for free and giving it to others doesn’t cost us anything. Our…

Purpose

things align for a reason, unknown of the purpose or reason, within it, every crack and weakness is exposed all the glory it ever had, just goes but appreciate the fact that it came and went, appreciating the fact that, there will be a development of someone who aims to perfect themselves, of someone who aims to be more than…

HAPPY NEW MONTH!

A sneak peek of what is to come this month. 4 months into the year and still grateful for all that we learn and discover. We are not better than anyone else, but together we will be great. Happy new month everyone!

In Perfect Peace

The rain the previous night, The wind that came with it, The soft, fresh air this morning, The rustling leaves, The sunrise, The chirping birds, My early morning meditation, punctuated by some sips of water, My time at the loo, The brushing of my teeth, All these I experience alone, In perfect peace. The status updates can be disturbing, The…

EVENTUDE

At night, I lay in bed And think of all I’ve done; From sunrise to sunset From the break of dawn to its going down, There I peruse and reminisce, And ask myself questions such as – Did I cheat my fellow man? Or rejoice at the pain of another Did I please my God? Or make someone lose faith…

T-shaped

T- shaped. It doesn’t really matter, as long as I am not a square. Squares – cage, constriction, common. The thought of staying in one role for 5 years, haunts me like a nightmare. Where do I learn new skills? why can’t roles be more fluid?  Knowledge is power and understanding how to communicate well between a developer and designer…

Free

Distressed . It stands beside me , beyond the eye can see. Envelopes itself around like a snake around a mango tree Fear coils up its snaky body around me, attached to me like gold jewellery complimenting every shade of me like it knew my perfect match – the perfect foundation shade that I couldn’t find in any mayberline it…

DEAR LEAH,

Today is your day, So I thought of 1000 wishes for you; Guess that’s too much to say, So I’ll just say a few: May God strengthen and keep you, May His face shine upon you And His peace be with you. May all your dreams come true, And your skies remain ever blue. May your strength be renewed And…

Hidden Secrets (Part Two)

The desire to be free is what we all rightfully demand from life, these chains that I once carried while walking down a path that was filled with continual disappointment, will be broken at the time I discovered this blanket’s power. It was only through time travel were I could see a fresh perspective of my life, I could finally…

MIDDAYTUDE

At the peak of day, When the sun no longer smiles; But is laughing so hard on us – When shade, cool breeze… are enough But hard to come by sometimes At times like that, I go horse-riding; Holding onto his reins of wishes, I wish for rain at such times, I wish for grey cloudy skies, I wish to…

Pride – poem

Pride. His walls are as tight. Tighter than a metal chains circling around me like, a venomous snake squeezing me before the fall. Pride, Opens his arms His charming voice speaks power and control. But, what you don’t understand is how he deceives you, Puffing you up like a balloon full of air until you reach your maximum and you…
