THE PARABLE OF THE FRIDGE AND THE DOOR

Someone close to our family was building in the community. He is an indigene but not resident in town. He sent some appliances that would be used to furnish the house he was building. One of them was a giant-sized fridge. It was quite huge. We had to keep it with us before taking it to the house. But there […]

IS THAT HURT WORTH IT?

That day as I began to pray, I did not think twice about it when I began to pray for those who I felt have hurt me also in the past. I prayed the blessing of God upon their lives. At that point, I knew that it was a long-forgotten and won battle of my mind. I cannot edit the […]

WHERE IS MY DADDY?

It was one of those trips away from home. My wife told me that while I was away, in the midst of one of the fun of a children’s programme and presence of many people at that moment, Danielle ran to her and asked, “Where is My Daddy?” Friend, your relationship with God must be a front-burner at all time. […]

LIGHT ON YOUR PATH

Back in my days at the university, I had spent some time praying in the Sports Complex. Just as I went to my hostel, I had an image flash before me. I saw myself laying my hands on my brother’s printing machine in his press in Ibadan. I was not yet acquainted to the things of the Spirit but I […]

SHE SAID “PLANTAIN”

It was the close of day. We were on our way home. Right from the back of the car where she sat, Danielle just said “Plantain”. We realised that it was right at the spot where we would normally stop to buy plantain. She already knew our routine. The desire of every child of God must be to know the […]

I DID NOT WANT TO SPEAK

By the time the cab stopped in front of where I was lodging, the cabman said to me “I know it must have been God that made me pick you this night. My soul is lifted. I am going back a different person” But the irony of it was it took a huge struggle for me to open up my […]

IN THE MIDST OF LABOUR (6)

When she gave the first push, the midwives began to encourage her. I kept telling her, “Babe, I am here. You can do this”. When the team lead noticed that she was getting a bit tired after about three pushes. She did something profound- she took my wife’s hands and told her, “Touch your baby’s head. She is here already.

IN THE MIDST OF LABOUR (5)

The nurse told my beloved wife, “When you sense a strong urge that feels like you want to defecate, let me know. It means you are ready to push”. Then she left us to attend to other things. Some few minutes later, my wife began to say to me, “I want to defecate”. I called the midwives and they all […]

IN THE MIDST OF LABOUR (4)

When we landed in the hospital, the nurse on duty ushered us into the labour room to check the progress of labour. We had been confessing throughout the pregnancy that she dilates fast, fully and delivers with ease. When the nurse checked and mentioned that she was 8cm gone, we simply began to rejoice. Hope was lifted. We looked at […]

IN THE MIDST OF LABOUR (3)

Irewamiri had a typical morning routine of getting things set for the school while I had to bath Danielle and get her ready also. As laboured progressed, we had to decide to either abandon everything and focus on labour or just carry on with our morning schedule in the midst of it all- we focused on our morning schedules. She […]
