FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW…

We were on a trip out of town. We travelled in three vehicles. Out of all the drivers, I was the only one who knew the place that we were heading to. No matter how much the other drivers sped, they would have to slow down and wait for me to take the lead. They do not know the particular […]

RUNNING THROUGH DARK PLACES

While growing, I hated running picking things up for Dad, Mum or siblings late in the night from their rooms. Once Daddy says, “Temi, bring my radio from the room”, fear grips my heart. It became worse when someone close died and I would imagine that the ghost can appear to me while alone. If you are plagued with the […]

THE DADDY WE RAN FROM

While growing, we had a father in the neighbourhood who was quite tough. He is a Medical Doctor. Whenever we see his car coming, we would dodge and find another route. Once he gives you a ride, you will begin to recite the multiplication table until you get to your destination. We thought that he was simply too tough. He […]

I WAS BOYCOTTING PROCESS

As a teenager growing up with parents who were Pastors, one of the things to endure was the Pre-convention fast. It was a minimum of fourteen days and a maximum of twenty-one days. But it was difficult- pretty difficult. I thought eating toothpaste would work so I brushed several times. Laughs. I would visit our neighbours and take some slices […]

I WAS PRESSURED BUT…

It was a season where I needed some money. I had prayed about it but it seems nothing changed physically. I was about to ask a friend who sends me data to convert it to cash so I can at least have offering for service that evening. I could not imagine that I would not have an offering to give […]

DIVINE DEMANDS DISTURBS THE FLESH

I was in a conversation with an elderly person and he mentioned to me, “This is not just comfortable”. He is was referring to a godly demand. I said to him, “Sir, the demand of God is never comfortable. It will disturb and unsettle the flesh”. He took a deep sigh. Beloved, the demands of God upon a man that […]

EQUIPPING BEFORE APPEARANCE

I needed help with clearing the weeds in the compound. For weeks, I tried reaching out to a young man who helps me regularly. When I eventually saw him, he explained to me that the reason he had not come was that he had no tools. His cutlass got spoilt on his last job. He promised to show up once […]

“GO, JESUS IS WITH ME”

Mum was to attend the annual Holy Ghost Convention many years ago. I was still a little boy and she thought it would be tough to leave me behind. She was already thinking of how she would go with me. The next night she had a vision where she saw herself wanting to walk with Christ but her handbag would […]

SHE TORE THE RECEIPT

We stopped at an eatery to buy some snacks. After payment, the receipt was given to us. I handed it over to the sales person who would give us our order. When she collected the receipt, she tore it and handed it over to us and then gave us the snacks we ordered. Then I said to her pranking her, […]

LET ME REMOVE THE BONES

I settled down to eat boiled plantain and herring fish sauce that evening. Danielle found her way to me- she wanted to share in my meal. Right after the first bite on plantain, she made it clear that she wanted fish. Unfortunately, the herring was quite bony and Danielle wanted it fast. As she chews one, she wanted the next. […]
