He Gives Us So We Can Give It…

Whatever he gives us, we do not keep for ourselves.

Just as he has blessed us so we can be a blessing to others, he has comforted us so we can comfort others in trouble.

He has shown us love so we can love others.

He has been merciful with us so we can show others mercy.

He has been gracious to us so we can give grace to others.

He wants us to treat others how he treats us.

Whatever he gives you, pay it forward.

Who The Shoe Fits….

Bunmi walked into the boutique because she was attracted to this entirely gorgeous patent leather stiletto red bottoms she saw from the shop window. It was sitting there like a queen, regal and throbbing with an aura that seemed to say “come and wear me… I’m all yours”. This was not just another pair of heels, these was THE QUEEN OF HEELS!

Bunmi did not care if the heavens were falling at that moment. she just knew she must have those shoes.

So she walked into the shop and asked to try it on. She sat down and impatiently tapped her toes while the attendant brought the shoes. Bunmi closed her eyes and held her breath as she dusted off her feet and lowered her left foot into the shoe. It fit …. somehow…

#NewFavorite: INTRODUCING Lily Perez (@LilyPerezlive)

I haven’t posted any new music in a while. Not because there hasn’t been any, but because i want to make sure if i introduce you to any song here, it has to be a song that has personally blessed me.

Recently, i have been so blessed  by this new worship song i have just discovered by a lady who I believe we will soon be really good friends (Lool). She has an incredible testimony that inspired the song and i believe you will connect with it.

I Interviewed her on my radio show on sunday and i was so touched by her story and inspired by how God brought her through it all.

My Very First Fathers Day!

I never liked fathers day. Not because I didn’t like fathers, but because every celebration of fathers day reminded me of the void in me that I’ve always tried to fill. It reminded me of the relationship i wish I had.

Today is different though. For the very first time I really am celebrating fathers day. I’m celebrating my father without any wishful thinking or void in my heart because I have finally accepted the truth that I have always had a dad.

I’ve been going through life listening to the devil’s lies that I have no father looking out for me. I lived all 32 years of my life feeling incomplete and unwanted because my biological dad wasn’t there.

But I know better now. I have been set free from the oppression of that lie by the truth of Gods word. I have always had a father. He formed me and gave me a name and a future. He wrote down everyday of my life in his book. He loves me unconditionally and is always looking out for my good.

A dad who has never left my side for once even when I didn’t realize he was there.  He’s not mad at me and is always in a good mood about me. He sees my imperfections yet, he’s proud of me!

Today is fathers day and for the first time, I have no pain about today. Instead I am full of gratitude to my dad for his amazing grace and patience with me. Bringing me up to this point has been quite a journey I tell you.

Happy fathers day dad, thank you for being not just God, but a great great father.

Not Meant To Be Hidden. Be Seen!

“You are the light that shines for the world to see. You are like a city built on a hill that cannot be hidden.

Matthew 5:14 ERV

Look at what he called you. : A light.
In other words, when you show up, darkness disappears.
Light brings illumination, from light, we get the word enlightenment, light represents revelation because light reveals hidden things. With light comes clarity and, knowledge.

Child of God, you are LIGHT! confusion has no place in your life. Ignorance has no place in your life.

Look again, he said you’re like a city on a hill. You CANNOT be hidden.
Child of God, it is not in your destiny to be obscure. Your gifts, talents, personality, and entire awesoneness are meant to shine.

Break free from every mindset and toxic thought telling you that you belong in a corner. That other people shine except you. NO! RISE UP and let the devil know that you know who you are right now.

YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD!

Let your daily confession be:

I am the light of the world . I bring solutions to hard situations. I am a problem solver. I am attractive. I am not hidden. I am seen. I shine brightly with the glory of God.

Thy Will Be Done…

Mark 8:34 (ERV)

This season God is reaching out to his children all over the world across all platforms. Don’t miss the move of God by holding on to your desires and wants and ambitions. Your true fulfillment comes from walking the path God has marked out for you.

Let go and let God!

Thy will be done oh lord…! Thy will only be done.

Find Your Community & CONNECT!

Behavioural scientists say humans are by nature social creatures. We connect with other humans emotionally and we seek out physical connections that appeal to us emotionally.

As it is true in behavioural science, so is it true in our lives as spiritual  beings too. In actual fact, i believe this desire for connection originates from our spirit because Man is spirit first.

We cannot do life alone. we are not wired that way. In our walk with God, we will sometimes need a hand to hold as we walk through some difficult learning moments, we will need the support  of a community, and the companionship and fellowship of friends and brethren to share joys with.

Community keeps us from becoming a self-absorbed island. community can keep us accountable. community keeps us balanced.

God always establishes us in a community so that we can receive his love through the channels of people he surrounds us with.  It could be your church family, circle of friends, prayer group or mentors; take a careful look around you; you’ll find them.

Now, i’m not saying things will be rosy dovy all the time with some people in your community; because we are human, friction will happen but you will learn through grace and forgiveness and you will grow.

You are not created to go through life all on your own. God has given you a support system. look carefully around you; chances are you already know who they are. CONNECT!

I Didn’t Know What Love Looked Like…

I didn’t know what a good man is supposed to look like or treat me because I didn’t have a dad to show me who a good man is.

I grew up hearing stories about how my dad got my mum pregnant and left. So my earliest impressions of men were that they were not to be trusted. They’ll always leave. The more I heard tales about my rejection, heard tales of how my mother struggled to raise me alone as a single broke mom, heard how my grandmother had to take me from her to save us from starving, the more inferior and unloved I felt.

I believed something was wrong with me and I have to work at making people love me. I believed I had to be the kind of person I imagined they would love. The more men I met, the more identities and personas I adopted. In the process, I lost me.
