No Man is an Island

Authentic Support System So the day finally came. September 20, 2020. We didn't know this would be the date but we knew that someday soon my sister and her family would leave for their home country. It would be great for them, but we knew we would miss them a lot. It's a blessing when cousins are like siblings and their home becomes your second home. To have someone in the other family who makes my little Micah act like a responsible adult, and another who makes Anna feel she has not just a sister, but a twin - you have to be grateful. I've come to realize that with what I describe...

Pencil Tip

MY CUTIE HURT HERSELF On September 10, 2020, Anna unintentionally drove a pencil tip into her finger. She was using a mechanical pencil and had pushed out too much lead. The incident happened when she tried to push the excess back into the holder. I tried to remove it but only succeeded in taking out a tiny portion. I could feel the hard piece but it was lodged in a way that the tweezers couldn't reach it. We flushed with water, treated with methylated spirit, and took a break. It hurt every time she put pressure on it, especially when she tried to write. My husband talked about the possibility of an incision at...

How to Conduct a Training Session on WhatsApp

The Notice Learning is always fun and this past week, I had an interesting opportunity to do just that as I was invited to mentor a group of about 120 people on WhatsApp. It's a relationship hub but for some reason they wanted to hear about money, business and investments and they chose me because they saw my thought provoking video with the title - What if you don't get a job. Timothy Inyang came up with the idea and did an excellent job bringing it to life. He informed me about the session a few hours before it was to begin so I quickly gathered my thoughts on what to share with them. [caption...

Bugs for Dollars

I must write about this. You'll see why. My youngest, Micah, is a very interesting child. He makes us laugh a lot - things he says, his reasoning, and some of his actions. A few days back, I heard him yell at Nathan, so I called them to find out what the problem was. Turns out Micah saw a bug near his online school setup in the parlor and asked Nathan to help him kill it. Nathan refused, maintaining that everyone should face their fears. He had a point. So, I asked Micah to go and kill the bug or avoid it. He didn't like the verdict, so he started crying. My husband went...

Easter

Terrible things happened to Jesus on that day but we call it Good Friday. That’s because the focus is on the result, the outcome of all He suffered. He was arrested/imprisoned - I have liberty He was scourged - By those stripes, I am healed He was punished - I have peace He became a curse by hanging on the tree - Every curse is broken in my life He was rejected - I am accepted into God’s family He died - I have eternal life There’s so much more. I can’t tell it all. Words are not enough. What a beautiful exchange. He took my pain, my sin, my guilt, my shame, my...

Rome

Rome wasn’t built in a day, but these days it seems we all want to do just that or better - how about building it in a minute? Like Mister Maker. Ambition is good but every now and then, I see the need to calm down, assess the situation and push some things out into the future. Guess what!!! There’s something called TOMORROW 💃💃🕺🏼🕺🏼and you probably will still be here then. So why kill yourself prematurely by trying to get too many things done TODAY? Notice I said ‘too many’. MANY is fine but TOO MANY isn’t. And our bodies and other indicators signal us when we’re getting to TOO MANY. A good indicator for...

Co-Pilot

He almost got us killed… but a lesson from my dad saved the day. Here’s the story. I remember my father for many reasons but today I’ll speak of only one. He taught me a valuable lesson that has saved my life on more than one occasion. He said, ‘whenever you sit beside the driver of a vehicle, you must assume the responsibility of a co-pilot’. He said there are hazards along the way that drivers may miss and as co-pilot, you have to timely and calmly bring it to their notice. So, even if every other passenger goes to sleep, you must not. I took that to heart and even on road journeys...

Change

Things change - the weather, legislation, the economy, oil price, your body’s metabolism, and so on. Change is a constant in life, so expect it and prepare for it. A mentor of mine often said ‘Hope for the best but prepare for the worst’. This way if things don’t turn out the way you want, you already have a solid fallback plan. Sometimes we find that we react to the changes we experience but we could do better by becoming proactive about life as a whole. A little more foresight will go a long way. Take some time to look ahead and take action today to make tomorrow more like you desire. It’s...

Ignorance

It's said that ignorance is bliss. I'll add five words to that. Ignorance is bliss until the bomb goes off. In your health In your finances In your relationships and every aspect of your life Take the time to find out all you need to know. Be informed. With the right information you will be empowered to make the right decision and to take necessary action to get rid of the bomb altogether. According to Nicholas Ling, 'Ignorance is voluntary misfortune'. Think about this. Do not entertain or accommodate ignorance....

GIVE

It's that time of year again. As you celebrate with friends and loved ones, remember those around you who need a little help from you to make their celebration a little more blissful. Can you provide for someone in need during this season? You probably worked hard, earned quite some money this year, got promoted, extended your business frontiers, made it into that major league, or some other really fulfilling accomplishments, and you for sure survived 340+ days of this year. What better way to celebrate, to express your joy, and to show you are grateful! Give someone else a reason to rejoice. The good thing about giving is that you gain too. Apart from God's...

Why Cry?

This seemed like a heartfelt cry and I wondered. I couldn’t make out what the problem was so I asked. Why are you crying?  No response. What’s wrong? No response. Did you fall down? 'No Mummy'… she replied through the tears that streamed down her face. So why are you crying? And she cried even more. Patience… good enough, this virtue wasn’t far at that time so I waited for her to calm down. Then I asked again, and through the interruption of heaves and sniffs, she told me what the problem was. She had so much homework to do and she was already so tired, she feared she wouldn’t finish on time...

No Other God – 2

He’s the only God I know who died to save the people He created in His image and likeness. NO OTHER GOD! He gave His life in faith that we would recognize that there is no greater love than this and return to Him. Yes, return. Mankind had fellowship with this God before the devil deceived the original prototype - Adam - into disobeying God and thus being separated from God, and becoming a slave to sin and the devil, and condemned to eternal death. This is the FALL - the result being that anyone born as ‘mankind’ is automatically a condemned sinner because the prototype had been corrupted. The curse only made it...

Salt of the Earth

A lot can go wrong with a meal when the cook has not learned some secrets from more experienced hands. A long time ago, I learned that when cooking with dried fish, you have to rinse off the excess salt with cold water before you begin, and taste to determine if you have enough salt already before you attempt to add any. You see, salt is used to preserve fish and several foods. It's effective because it draws out moisture from the food and thus impairs the growth of food-spoiling microbes. In fact, Bethany Moncel, in her article - Six functions of salt in food - states that many disease causing microbes are...

Bold As a Lion

I AM BOLD AS A LION! This is one statement I turn over in my mind just before I go up to sing, especially when the nerves feel almost overwhelming. It’s amazing how certain important feats seem to require so much boldness; I guess that’s because some of them are a big risk. Risk cannot be separated from boldness. Whether you’re making a bold fashion statement, a bold declaration of your conviction, a bold investment, or a bold proposal to someone who’s clearly out of your league, there’s a risk. But if you don’t make that bold move, you’ll never achieve your desire, and if you do, you just might. BOLD AS A LION!...

The Worship Experience 8.0

October 1, 2017 was quite a day to remember. Starting from the Independence Thanksgiving Service at the City of David, Eket to The Worship Experience (TWE), which held later in the day. It was a day filled with thanksgiving, prayers, praise and worship. By the way, Happy New Quarter. Have you heard that one before? You know we take advantage of every opportunity to be happy in Nigeria - Happy New Year, Happy Sunday, Happy Weekend, Happy New Month, and so on. I seize this opportunity to appreciate Daniel Owoabasi and his team for inviting me to minister at TWE 8.0. It was indeed a wonderful time in God's presence and a perfect way...

Joy switch

I can’t even begin to tell you how exciting a rehearsal session can be. It’s like therapy for me and I relied on this a lot while I was in school. No matter how tough the week was, I just had to wait for the next rehearsal. Reminds me of a song from way back that said ‘Music makes me high’. Music is powerful in itself but it’s an even greater blessing when the lyrics edify the hearers. Fast forward to this time in my life when I can go beyond learning other people’s songs to writing mine and working with skilful instrumentalists to build the musical accompaniment. When you have a good...

A Great Name

There's absolutely nothing wrong with one's name being great! Sometimes in the name of humility, we keep ourselves from aspiring to achieve great things and thus limit ourselves, fail to reach our highest potential and deprive ourselves and the world of the benefits that would have come as a result of us reaching our peak. Some people think that pride is the reason God came down to confuse the language of the people who were building the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11:1 -9 because they said '...

Ignition Point 6

Yes. Today is the day! September 10, 2017. Ignition Point 6. It's the sixth edition of an initiative by A. Moses. We've rehearsed, we've prayed, and now we go believing that God will fill the atmosphere with His presence as we minister. We expect the manifest presence of God and with that, we know the sick will be healed, captives set free, burdens lifted, yokes destroyed and many souls saved. I'll be performing four songs, three of which are mine. I'm excited. I haven't performed 'Praise Him' and 'You too much' live before but from the feel of the rehearsals, it's going to be a wonderful time. It's interesting the way these songs...

EMBER Months

In this part of the world, the last four months of the year are referred to as EMBER months and that comes with a negative connotation. You see EMBER sounds a bit like ‘mba’, a popular Igbo word that means NO. Over the years, most people have come to think of this period as difficult, dangerous, treacherous, and packed with an air of impossibility. It is also usually accompanied by an increase in accident rates, crime rates, and so on, so a lot of people live in fear during this time of year. How about looking at this time differently from now on? We may not be in control of a lot of...
