WHEN THE TEACHERS CHANGED

In my second year in the University as an undergraduate, there is a course that it was widely reported that the lecturer in charge was not generous with good grades. The lecturer actually taught us the first semester and the results were not too friendly. However, by the second semester, the lecturer was swapped for another person. First, the course […]

MY STRUGGLE WITH LUST AND THE CALL TO CONSECRATION

As a teenager, in the midst of my struggles for a pure walk, I would stay awake to watch the show called “Midnight Hot” on one of the channels of a Cable TV. I only wanted to see the scantily clothed figures on the screen. I stayed awake to watch! Fleshly desires kept me awake. I mean- I waited for […]

OF EMPTY ENVELOPE AND CHILD-LIKE FAITH

My daughter walked into our room with a white envelope in her hands. She opened it and I knew it was empty. But then, she dipped her hands into the empty envelope and stretched her hands towards me. I was wondering what the drama was about so I stretched my hand to receive her imaginary gift. She dipped her hands […]

A dear protégé of mine heard the Lord say to him to apply for jobs in a particular institution. He got invited for an interview and the first question that he was asked was, “How did you know that there was a job opening?” The memo for the job was meant to be released some hours later but he got […]

I thought it was normal to sit close to the Television set. I thought it was normal to have to almost “enter […]

DO NOT PANIC!

When my first daughter was still younger, she sleeps soundly at night but she would at times turn and make sounds. At that time, our mum would pick her up to feed her before she starts to cry. But there was an evening Mum was busy. I had to lie by her side as she was still more conscious than […]

THE BLESSING OF THE RIGHT PEOPLE

I was having an in-between session chat with some other ministers during a conference when one of my friends said, “All I wish I can take from you are your men. Give me those men of yours”. We had a good laugh but it was a way of giving a compliment to the amazing commitment of men working in the […]

OF HEIGHTS AND OPEN DOORS

We were always confident of stepping out to do a thing or two in the compound without allowing my daughter to follow us out. As we shut the door on her, we would say to her, “Darling, just hold on for us. We are just stepping out for a bit”. She would cry and throw tantrums. She would still try […]

LESSONS FROM DISAPPOINTMENT

Many years ago, an uncle said, “Once it is time for that meeting, I will take care of the transport. You all are blessing lives”. I was already overjoyed. When it was some days to the meeting and I had settled amount with the bus drivers, I called uncle so he could fulfill his promise. The response I got was […]
