THE JOY OF FINDING

We were getting ready to go to church when Danielle said to her Mum, “Let’s play hide and seek”. I felt it was a weird request considering what we needed to get done. But Irewamiri calmly said to Danielle, “I will go and hide while you try to find me”. I was the timekeeper. I counted to ten and released […]

HARD TIMES CAN BE SPRINGBOARDS

In our secondary school days, we used a Mathematics textbook called the New General Mathematics. It was full of exercises. The unique thing was it had answers on the last pages of the book. The reason for the answers was to confirm if the solution was right or wrong after the student must have practised. But we had a different […]

IT IS STILL THERE!

I was driving home one day and I noticed something I had not noticed before. I had driven the same way. It was over a year of taking the same way. What did I see? I saw the foundation of a building. Why did I not see it earlier? It was already overrun with thick bush. Why did I get […]

TWO FACTORS THAT MUST GUIDE YOUR RELATIONSHIPS

I was speaking to a dear sister some years back. I noticed her spiritual growth as her pastor and I was excited about it. Every Pastor loves a growing sheep! I told her the truth about her courtship. She had been talking about the man in some previous conversations. I told her, “Can I tell you this? The pace at […]

ARE YOU PAYING ME?

We once had a unit head in church who began to show signs of lack of commitment and divided attention. After reaching out on informal grounds and we noticed no change. I instructed that a memo be issued to know why the unit head was not available for a major conference and did not give any notice at all. The […]

COMMITMENT IS NOTICEABLE

People would accost some of the staff then and ask, “What do you people even do in that place? We thought it is a church”. They never believed that church work should demand that level of seriousness. Ministry is work. It […]

COMMITMENT IS NOT JUST EMOTIONS

It was my Grandparents that gave me the gift of my wig and gown and other accessories as I got called to the Nigerian Bar as a Barrister and Solicitor. It was quite some cost at the time. They now had three grandchildren as lawyers. But in service year, I knew I would be going into full-time ministry. I was […]

FINDING DIRECTION IN LIFE

About 11 years ago, I got into my office and met a note saying that a childhood acquaintance had checked up on me. He promised to come back. He left his contact. I was excited to call him. He eventually returned to see me. He narrated how it was his birthday and while he prayed, the Lord told him, “Temi […]

THESE TWO MUST BE READY

Irewamiri decided to sew a new garment for our daughter for her third birthday celebration. The moment I announced to Olive that Mummy was sewing a dress for her, her face lit up. Irewamiri then told Olive to try on the clothe to ascertain the fitness before finishing it up. As soon as Olive got into the dress, she began […]

A COUNSEL TO INTENDING COUPLES

The day after our wedding, a dear one called and we responded that we were already in the place we chose for our honeymoon. We were to be there for the whole week. She said to us, “You both are very smart. We did not have any honeymoon. We just went back home to continue life and we had spent […]
