WE THOUGHT IT WAS NOTHING

There was ongoing construction work in our compound some years back. The bricklayers had moulded some blocks. After it dried, Dad wanted to invite them to stack the blocks pending the time it will be needed. Well! My cousin and I were attracted to the money they will be paid but we underrated the work. We volunteered with the whole […]

“PASTOR, WE HAD AN ACCIDENT”- THE POTENCY OF PRAYER

Just some few minutes after our Sunday Service, I was ruminating about the surprise lunch trip I had planned for Irewamiri when a dear one walked in to my office and said, “Pastor, we had an accident. The car is damaged”. I asked after his welfare and that of everyone who was in the car. I stepped out to check […]

WHEN REST BECOMES DANGEROUS

There was a season when I thought I had worked a whole lot and I needed to take some rest. However before I knew it, I was already moving from resting to indulgence. Devotion dropped. Sleeping increased. I was also getting lost in movies and social media. I kept saying, “I want to rest”. Rest is great. Rest might be […]

WE THOUGHT IT WAS IMPRESSIVE

Recently, I was teaching a group of teenagers. I asked the boys- If you are to have a car or a motorcycle and you want to leave a location that has some girls who you admire, how would you leave? The boys said, ‘They would rev the engine and leave with speed’. They thought that would really be impressive. Then […]

When she began to drink it and Olive found out, Olive went after Danielle’s drink. She grabbed it from her. When I took it from her and returned it to her sister. She began to cry […]

STOP. LOOK. CHECK.

Olive walked out of the room. When she stepped out, she knew that I followed her. Some few steps thereafter, she stopped and looked again. This time around, she noticed that I had stopped so she stopped also. She stood on the same spot. I was speaking with her mum. We both noticed that she stopped. Eventually when I began […]

MATTRESS: HARD OR SOFT?

My wife has jokingly concluded that she will always ask “about to wed” lovers, “What type of mattress do you like?” Why? For a really long time, she endured waking up each day on our tall bed and high (and hard)mattress. I did not know what she was going through until she voiced out her aches. As a loving husband, […]

THE FIRST GIFT SHE GAVE ME

She had just returned from a trip and I was pretty excited to see the beautiful, lovely, amazing, smiling, elegant, delightful and regal princess (What was I saying?) She brought me a gift- a lovely leather bonded black journal. I love journals. When I opened it, my excitement disappeared- I flipped through virtually every page and checked the inner pockets. […]

POSTURE THAT ATTRACTS MORE

I was spending the time praying in my Dad’s church that Saturday. When I was about rounding off, Dad walked in for meeting that was about to start. I went to greet him. Then he said, “I have seen the video devotionals. They are powerful. I love that thing you say at the beginning”. I repeated what I used to […]
