We learn from Moses in the bible that God can deliver what we ask for from the seeming mundane and normal thing in our hand. God does not always introduce something new, sometimes He opens our eyes to see the new in what we already have. It has taught me contentment and made me more … Continue reading Focus on the stick and water
Two nights ago, I had an interesting dream, very mundane but powerful. I was back in high school in a dormitory talking with a couple of friends and laughing hard over the things we talked about. As we spoke and laughed, night came and I saw us all go to bed in different beds but … Continue reading Are we exclusive?
I was walking to work about a week ago, there was a young man with his son who was barely 3 years old walking side by side in front of me, so I had an acute view of their every move and could even hear a bit of their conversation. Daddy would point to a … Continue reading Onlooking teacher
There is a reason that some of the best teachers in any discipline get this title for things like being able to communicate with clarity and precision. Teaching is only considered impactful if those being taught have grasped the knowledge from the said teacher in the easiest way possible. The best teachers use analogies, real … Continue reading Remember ‘a broom on the teachers head’
This is such a risky post. I think it was important I wrote it down, at first it was just a journal entry, but towards its end, I was fully convinced the Spirit of God wanted me to share it.

I did not even know who this person was but on account of my friend who reached out, I went through the hassle … Continue reading Banging for others
I will always be in awe of God. Always. I’m lying in my bed but I can’t sleep because I keep thinking about how God chooses to connect dots that we often attribute to “coincidence”. I sat with a friend talking, we randomly remembered an event that led us to a couple and I remember … Continue reading “4 years down the drain”

I have found that friendships grow stronger bonds the more vulnerability grows, so essentially, the more open you are with letting people into your space, the more bonded you'll be. Our levels of friendships with different people vary with the levels of vulnerability in each of … Continue reading Running back to the cross
I am convinced beyond every reasonable doubt that we are all products of our environments, and just for this reason, we need to be a lot more gracious and tolerant of people because more often than not, people act in accordance to what was acceptable, expected and tolerated in the environments they grew up in, … Continue reading “Don’t mess with her”
