MISTAKES THE YOUNG MAKE (2)

That morning in his office, I told him: “Sir, I simply want to ask that I learn from you. Baba is a General. You are a Major General. There are things Baba will say that will take me years to understand. Can I constantly seek explanations from you too sir?” That question redefined a lot of things for me in […]

MISTAKES THE YOUNG MAKE (1)

For the first 3 years of my pastoring work, I simply thought I could get the work done by being prayerful, studious and preaching skillfully. Honestly, I tried my best. I preached some great sermons but I missed it at the very core- I thought I could figure it out myself. The first mistake that many young people make is […]

OVERCOMING TEMPTATIONS

I saw the sincerity in his eyes. This is not a place he wants to be. He could not imagine how he got there in the first place. Then I told him my personal discovery: “We all get tempted. I get tempted also. But I realise that it is always quite hard to cave in to temptation when I have […]

SONGS OF THE MORNING

As I turned that morning, a song came out of my mouth. It was talking about the Spirit of God sustaining us. It mentioned about His Spirit infilling us rather than being full of self. It was 2.18am in the morning. I picked my phone and kept a record of it. But I kept singing it that morning. The day […]

NOT LED BY PRESSURES

I walked into the hall and told my dear brother and friend that I would not be able to wait anymore. I had to sort out an emergency before it was dark. I had the key of my car locked up in it. There was no way I could access the spare key. I was out of town! The moment […]

WHEN I SAW THE EXPIRY DATE

While working late into the night, I noticed there was some biting sensation around my legs. I decided to take action incase it was mosquitoes. I had a repellant cream. I did not want to go in to pick a new one but found an old tube somewhere close. I forced the tiny cream in it out and I applied […]

MY VEST OF FRUITS

As I prayed, the Lord brought to me a picture of a vest I used to have as a young boy. It is a white vest that had images of several fruits and their names on it. It was that vest that made me know Paw-paw as Papaya too. It was a lovely vest. I rocked it while it lasted. […]

HOW I ATE MY RICE

As a young boy, when rice and stew is served and never forgetting the meat, I had a strategic way of eating it. I will begin to eat from the sides- the white rice alone ensuring that the stew on top of the mountain is not touched. After circling and eating out the unmixed rice, I then stir the portion […]

YOUR FATHER DOES NOT SLEEP

While carrying my baby, my spiritual father looked at her and said, “Your father does not sleep”. I had a good smile because he taught me how to stay awake in prayer. While you are still rolling in bed, dear fathers with busier schedules who slept later than you did are already on a prayer walk- they are sold out […]

WHAT GOD TOLD ME IN COURTSHIP

The emotions were there. Like every lover, I wanted to talk to my babe first thing in the morning and last thing at night. Asides the fact that we at times get to have late night calls during the days of free call. No matter how tired I was, I knew talking to her was a priority. At a season, […]
