GRATITUDE

Over these last few days, God has been teaching me something about gratitude. In subtle ways about how gratitude is an essential key in our walk with Him. Over the past few months, I recall correctly, having to go through a very stressful ordeal for which I had to be on a hospital bed for…

A CONVERSATION WITH GOD ABOUT PURPOSE

Hello God, It is me again. Remember Me? I have a question for you. Why do you let your sons and daughters go through hardship, pain and distress in the bid to serve you faithfully? Why do you allow the heathen to make mockery of us and say with their chest there is no God?…

INTUITION OR DISCERNMENT?

What is the difference between intuition and insight? How do you know what you have is not just a hunch? Discernment is the ability to make correct decisions based on your intuition, judgement and knowledge.

BUILDING RESILIENCE

I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength. —Philippians…

Reading the Bible this dawn, something struck me. David just got up and went to King Saul and told him. “I know I am a servant from the field, a shepherd. But give me the opportunity to fight this mighty Philistine.” This was a classic suicide mission. A death move. It is just like attempting…

ABOUT CONVICTIONS

I was reading the book of Numbers this dawn about Joshua and Caleb, and I’m not surprised why my uncle Rev Edward Otu named his sons after them. Very courageous people.

No matter how much we gain, nothing seems to be enough. The outward response to this is self-depreciation, self-deprivation and arrogance….

TAKING A BOLD STEP

Who wants to make bad decisions? No one! But over time, I’ve learned that indecision can often be worse.  Indecision and uncertainty can be dangerous, and let you to settle in your comfort zone thinking you have reached the pinnacle of your life when you are just about starting.

ENJOYING LEISURE

Today is a Sunday and I am pretty sure a lot of us are relaxing in the comfort of our homes just because it is a weekend. The weekdays make people find themselves stuck in a daily routine that offers a little more than the “rise and grind” type of life. While it is important…
