The Wrong Timing

Oftentimes we look for favour in the wrong places, from the wrong people and at the wrong time. Everyone seems to be normal until something goes wrong. We say normal people do not have a blameless life. The problem is, most ‘normal’ individuals are the perfect candidates fond of getting involved in situations at theContinue reading “The Wrong Timing”

Not My Mother’s

I was raised by a mother who did everything she could to make me and my siblings hate my father. Clearly, ‘hate’ is a big word and perhaps, you would have preferred the term ‘dislike’ instead. My mother’s speech, reactions and actions when my father was around or not, made her the best of allContinue reading “Not My Mother’s”

The Spirit of Maturity

I am a friendly person by nature. I should state that sometimes my friendliness can go overboard. Taking extra steps to help those in my world, or not bothering about emptying my pockets just to make others happy. But you all know, friendly people can be the talking types. I am also one of them.Continue reading “The Spirit of Maturity”

The Tomato Results

Starting from late Spring I used to prepare my garden for the planting period. This is when I need to select the types of vegetables to plant or not for the year. Among all these choices, tomatoes planting takes the first priority before others. It is more than simply because of my love for thisContinue reading “The Tomato Results”

The Alternative

Many Christians are forced to question their faith in God in the face of injustice. They wonder why the Lord does not intervene sooner. Many demands change before they cross the line of no returns. That line is revenge. Injustice can destroy a man’s life and all his existence. Injustice can create the worst orContinue reading “The Alternative”

Child Witches

There is a problem when the Bible is misinterpreted by Pentecostal miracle performers. There is a problem when the Word of God is twisted so badly that children are now becoming the victims of the hungry societies. Across the globe, many children have been and are still being accused of being witches or possessed byContinue reading “Child Witches”

When To Say Goodbye

The word ‘family’, resonated throughout my childhood. I was taught to eat together in the same bowl with my five siblings. I was dressed us in uniformed attires with my siblings. We went to church as one. We did practically all of those things family members do. This was a way to create an atmosphereContinue reading “When To Say Goodbye”

The Lost Gospel

I grew up with the a gospel that is the reverse of what it is today. It was different back then. Strong emphasis was on converting souls for Jesus Christ. There were discussions about sin, hell and heaven. The virtual imageries of hell are literal. The ugly devil with bloody horns, it’s burning flames wereContinue reading “The Lost Gospel”

Talk To God

I met a beautiful lady last year during a five-day conference on disability at a Methodist church in Raleigh. We got on right from the start! Ours was a friendship like biological sisters, except of course, it was brief. One day, I was discussing something personal with her when she cut me short and said,Continue reading “Talk To God”

The Missing Link

Relationship can become a struggle when only one side of the party is making considerable effort while the other is not. It takes two to tangled. This means love is not present where there is no honesty. You can take a donkey to the river to drink but, you cannot force it to drink. ItContinue reading “The Missing Link”

Christ in the Boy

Our Lord, Jesus Christ deliberately came down from Heaven to meet us. He knew we cannot come to heaven anytime we want to see Him. Hence, He took it upon Himself to join us here without reservation. The most beautiful part of His journey was to come through a woman. He was born of aContinue reading “Christ in the Boy”

The Delibrate Sin

Immediate gratification only yield instant results. After that, nothing else. Money is good. I recommend it. Living a prosperous life is okay. I am happy for that. However, when a Christian fails to understand the difference between a one-off gratification and a permanent blessing, his or her life will end up in continuous turmoil. OneContinue reading “The Delibrate Sin”

A Kind of Man

Many people do not understand why they are different from the others in their world. For some, it may be their disabilities. For others, it may be a sense of being uglier. For another, it could be the fear of being worthless. Thus, they eventually develop the repeated circles of soul-searching simply to seek theContinue reading “A Kind of Man”

Make God First before anything

New Year, New Beginning. New Year, beautiful plans. What would happen if God was not part of our plans? Where would that lead us? Into chaos, of course. Either God becomes our priority and everything other things fall into place, or we are living in total illusions. Take one more minute to think of howContinue reading “Make God First before anything”
