When we drove out of that city, my wife said to me, “Thank God for fathers. This is a place to visit regularly. I feel so refreshed” If anyone had said we would be that refreshed in 24 hours, it would have been difficult to believe- we just barely made it through a rough evening! Friends, there must be people […]

REVIVE YOUR TROULED SOUL(4)

She did not tell me this until after she said “Yes” to my proposal: She was always losing her peace whenever she said to herself that she does not want to marry me. I understand it all.

Knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience” (James 1:2,3) And then the Lord said to her that, “Oluwafunmike, life will still […]

REVIVE YOUR TROUBLED SOUL 1

During courtship, my wife and I were having a disagreement and I was scheduled to preach in two different meetings that were kilometres apart that day. Since I did not succeed in placating her, my heart was heavy. I began to wonder how I would carry through the day. Well! I resorted to praying in the Spirit as I drove. […]
