IF YOU WILL GROW SPIRITUALLY…

In my second year at the university, I woke up one night because I had a test in the morning. I picked up my books to read, and at that moment, it struck me like light: “Have you ever woken up to pray, study or fellowship with the Lord?” That day, I decided nothing would ever come before my devotion […]

THE “C”s THAT WILL HELP YOU (29)- COMPASSION 

My father, in the faith, shared with us about a time when they had a capital-building project they trusted the Lord for. When he took the matter to the Lord in prayers, the Lord told the ministry to build a church at a particular mission field. They obeyed.  The moment they finished building the church in the mission field, the […]

The “C” s THAT WILL HELP YOU (28)- COLLABORATION

One day, I was trying to reverse the car and accidentally got one of the tyres at the back into a drainage. I was stuck. I did not know what to do. Then someone showed up, an elderly man who had experience driving. He looked at the situation and requested that I pull out the car jack. Someone else fitted […]

The “C” s THAT WILL HELP YOU (27)- CREATIVITY 

During the economic crisis in the early 90s, when we had to cook with sawdust stoves and invent different things, we also had a shortage of supplies. However, as kids, we did not know. Mum would send us hunting for slightly ripe mangoes. She would cook vegetables, and when they were almost done, she would cut huge chunks of mangoes […]

BEFORE MORE… SAY THANK YOU FIRST!

Danielle had been with Mum in the kitchen- clearing dishes alongside. It was a sweet adventure for her. Mum was also making Moin-Moin (a delicious delicacy made from blended beans that taste amazing when cooked in special leaves), and she was helping with the process. At a point, Mum had to relieve Danielle of some of the technical parts of […]

The “C” s THAT WILL HELP YOU (26)- COMMUNICATION

There was a season when Irewamiri and I had a particular issue that we always avoided talking about. The moment we began the conversation, we both knew it would likely lead to an argument. Once our conversation goes in that direction and it starts getting heated a bit, we would throw the issue under the carpet again. One day, it […]

The “C” s THAT WILL HELP YOU (24)- CONFESSION

My little one was at a stage where her vocabulary was beginning to grow. She would say at times the exact opposite of what you are saying. We have to start speech culturing. When you say “You are a fine girl”. She can say, “I am not a fine girl”. We kept educating and correcting her. One evening, we were […]

The “C” s THAT WILL HELP YOU (21)- CONSECRATION

A dear friend used a powerful illustration once: If you have two bowls that look similar- you use one in the kitchen and another in the restroom. Then one day, you had a visitor who did not know the difference. You just met the two bowls in the kitchen. You are not sure of the one for the kitchen nor […]

The “C” s THAT WILL HELP YOU (20)- CALLING

I was reading about 3 am that September morning in 2009. I was awaiting a miracle for my Law School posting. It had become a naughty issue. That morning, while reading a book by Myles Munroe, “Principles and Benefits of Change,” I heard the Lord speak to me at my parent’s dining table. He said, “Son, there is a repositioning […]

The “C” s THAT WILL HELP YOU (19)- COVENANT 

My first time out of home as a teenager was at a State University. I was just about sixteen years old. One night, I was all alone in the flat when sickness struck. I had no phones to call home. My temperature was high. I was scared.  As I shook with feverish rigour under the thick blanket, I began to […]
