LOVING in 2017

Happy New Year everyone, this greeting might be coming a little late but it's still a new year nonetheless. How are we all doing so far in 2017? Are we keeping to our resolutions and goals? Hope we haven't thrown our New Year Resolutions into the bush just yet? I know it can be quite exciting to list out the things we want to do better in the new year but I have come to realize that setting goals is the easiest thing, achieving the goals however is another ball game entirely.

One of my own resolutions/goals this year is to be more intentional about loving people. We all know that loving people is not as easy as the books or media depicts. In fact, it is one of the hardest things to do. No wonder Jesus said that the greatest commandment in the Bible is to LOVE GOD and LOVE OTHERS as ourselves(Matthew 22:36-40).In order words, if we are successful in keeping that one commandment of Loving God and Loving others as ourselves, we have invariably obeyed all the other commandments o…


Hello beautiful people, how are you all doing? I am really excited about this month because, yes you guessed right - its my birthday month and even though the birthday has passed (it was 1st of August), I already sense that this month will be great.  So during the months building up to my birthday, I was thinking of the things I was trusting God for in this new year and while I was day dreaming and compiling my lists for God, a question dropped in my heart - "why do you want these things" ?
Human needs are insatiable, the more we have, the more we want to have. We are constantly thinking of the things we lack while taking the focus off the things we do have, its a constant rat race. The desire to have everything consumes us so much that most times we spend more than half of our lives acquiring things that we don't need and spend so much time doing things that do not matter.  In as much as we have needs that should be met, we should also consider our motives when we are …

Times and Seasons

Hello blogfam, its been a while right, apologies for the long silence, hopefully it won't happen again. So today, I want to blog about Time andSeasons because I have realized that we human beings are very fond of measuring everything and everyone by time or seasons. We sometimes attach greater importance to how quickly we achieve something much more than the quality of the achievement. What am I trying to say here? Let me give some common examples - We will rather finish school at a certain age with anyhow grade, studying anyhow course rather than spend time waiting on God to discover purpose and know the particular course we should study, why we should study it and if we should even bother going to the university at all. Another example is marriage - We will most times rather rush into marriage with someone we most likely know we are not compatible with but because we want to be married at a certain age, we will ignore all the signs and just go ahead so that we can be socially a…


Helloooooooooooooooooooo my people, it's been a really lonnnnnnnng time *covers face*. I really can't explain how it has taken me so long to blog, truthfully there is just no excuse but I sincerely apologize to everyone for the long silence and I promise to rectify my ways this year. Before I bore you with my stories however, let me first of all wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR...wohooo. I have to confess that entering a new year brings such an incredible feeling, that feeling of hope, of faith, of freshness, new beginnings, the feeling of being alive despite all odds...I could go on and on but it sure feels great to be alive to witness a new year. I am really looking forward to the great things this year has in store for us.  So what are your new year resolutions? (big grin), what do you plan to do differently this year? Am sure my post is really late as most people would have planned their new year resolutions by 31st December or November sef, but hey, it's fine if you ar…


I know there are lots of single ladies like me who will like to get married some day. Some are more than happy to marry now while some are still enjoying the single life so much that they don't want to marry anytime soon. whichever category you fall into, the bottom line is that an average young person does not want to be single for the rest of his/her life. What I have also discovered is that most times we say we are ready to get married because we think we old enough, we don't really sit down to consider all other factors to know if we are truly ready to be tied to someone else for the rest of our lives. The fact that you have finished university and you are older than 25 and all your mates are getting married doesn't mean YOU are ready to be married. I came across a check list for a godly young woman that can be used to determine if she is truly ready to be married. Trust me, when I saw the check list ehn, fear catch me...there is a lot to be done. I decided to share t…

Inspirational Tuesday - Wealth, Success or Love

Dear loved one, A woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. She said, "I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat." "Is your family home?" they asked. "No", she replied. "Not right now." "Then we cannot come in", they replied.

In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened. "Go tell them I am home and invite them in!" The woman went out and invited the men in. "We do not go into a House together," they replied. "Why is that?" she asked. One of the old men explained: "His name is Wealth," he said pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another one, "He is Success, and I am Love." Then he added, "Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home."

The woman went in and…

Hello everyone, am so so sorry for posting this really late..I have no excuses just that "life happens".

Without much ado, lets get down to the inspirational post for this week.

Dear loved one,

Jonathan Rogers, a handsome man in his late forties, completed high school in Trinidad. After working as a flight attendant for five years, he quit because he realized that life as a flight attendant was not what he wanted. Instead he took his customer service skills to the cruise line industry as a purser. At that time, Jonathan’s career aspirations were undefined. When he boarded the ship, his goals were to be employed for a few years and save enough money for a new life in Canada. Once in Canada, he would …
