LOVING in 2017

Image
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…

MOTIVES

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

Image
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…

NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS - JUST DO IT !!!

Image
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…

ARE YOU READY???

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…

Stop Child Sexual Abuse – Training 5

Image
Welcome to the last training in this series. It's been really insightful and eye - opening and I hope this training has saved a child or children out there. Thanks to everyone who has been following us on this journey.


Today, we tackle the really sensitive age of preteens range. I remember when I was this age, I was in a boarding school and trying my best to do well in my studies. While that is still true for many children within this age range, I know that they face a lot more pressure from different sources than what I faced at that time. “A preserved childhood is better than a repaired adulthood” — Pastor Nike Adeyemi Let’s welcome Praise Fowowe again to Mind and Mouth as he delivers today’s part of the series on stopping child sexual abuse! I want to really appreciate the numerous responses since we started this sexuality education series. The positive feedback we have been getting from you has really been encouraging and I am so certain that the game is over for many of…

Hello everyone, How was the Easter break? I hope beyond the merriment and the thrill of having a longggg holiday, we were able to reflect on the love that Christ has for us and the commandment He has given us to extend same to others.
First of all, I want to apologize for posting this training late. I  was supposed to post it yesterday but due to some factors, I was not able to.
So without much ado, lets get down to serious business.



Today, we are moving on to older children between the ages of 5 – 8 years. You will agree with me that crucial things happen within this age range. “A preserved childhood is better than a repaired adulthood” — Pastor Nike Adeyemi Let’s welcome Praise Fowowe again to Mind and Mouth as he delivers the 4th part of the series on stopping child sexual abuse! For parents with children between the age range of 5 – 8 years here are the basic traits you may likely experience with your children -          Unpredictable mood swings -          Becomes competitive and w…
