Time

I fell ill. Wow! This usually doesn't happen to me, but it did. The height of it was the moment I fell to the ground while trying to get from the hospital bed to the restroom which was only about 10 feet away. Someone helped me back to the bed and a nurse assisted me to the restroom. The amazing thing about this experience is how normal I felt in my mind, I could say I was mentally sound, but physically incapacitated. I knew everything that had to be done, and that I would have loved to do, but I also knew my body was unable to handle any of those at that...

Residence Permit

I remember my days on Campus. It was like being in a free world to some extent. There weren’t any serious rules to abide by so you could almost say we were free to do whatever we wanted. People buried themselves in diverse passions they only then had the liberty to – parties, business, music, fellowship, etc. Sometimes we would carry on as if those things were more important than our studies, but as we neared the end of each semester, the awareness of our primary purpose in school would become more evident and in fellowship you would hear the secretary announce: ‘Welcome to the Fellowship of Christian Students… Remember, you must first...

The Choice

Sometimes, even when we know for sure that possibilities exist, we feel too tired to reach out and grab what is right there in front of us. Sometimes we’re so close to the big break we desire and all that’s left is one move, but all of a sudden, our feet feel like they are weighted at the base. Sometimes, we know we’re not where we’re meant to be and that our current state is not the best, but we look around and because it seems we’re better off that some others, we consider settling right where we are. Do I really have to? What have I got to lose if I don’t?...

Life Cycle

Are you one of those who hardly ever have a problem? Consider yourself fortunate, lucky, blessed. Sometimes we coast for seasons without stress but every now and then, just as examinations are required to test our knowledge and competence, and to determine our qualification for transition to higher levels in our endeavours, life throws us a few tests and trials. Yes, that’s how I view them when they come around. I refuse to look at them as events that will break me, I always look out for the good in every single trial I go through. I believe there’s a silver lining behind every dark cloud and if I can’t find it, I...

In Love

Yes, it's almost here - Valentine's day! And with the elections postponed in Nigeria, the celebration of love can go on. Yesterday, I stumbled upon an old book of mine and my husband and I had a good laugh as we went over some of the poems I wrote back then. Here are a few:   One of your jokes would brighten my evening One of your smiles would bring sunlight in what seems like a dark night One look in your eyes would be like discovering the twinkle of the stars Even the darkest night is beautiful when I'm with you     Your love is like a fountain, refreshing Your company is like a balm, soothing Your words are like...

February Already

I remember saying Happy New Year just a while ago in a large gathering at Eko Hotel where we had the cross over service. It seems like just yesterday but a whole month has already gone by since then and now I can say this year is in full swing. No more happy new year greetings. The year's officially old. But we can still experience newness and new beginnings in different aspects of our lives. It's never too early or too late to begin. Everything starts from somewhere and at some time. Start and press on to fulfil your purpose, and remember it is a gradual process. It doesn't happen overnight. We must be ready to begin...

Spies

I read an account of 12 spies who went to check out a land that had been promised to them. It was a serious fact finding mission and they were to return with as much information about the land as they could possibly gather to give the rest of the people a good picture of what the land was like – the population, the natural resources, the strength of the people, the fertility of the soil, and so on. All twelve men went to the land and saw the same things and their account was that the land flowed with milk and honey, the people were strong, and the cities were fortified and...

When you believe

There were loud cheers and shouts of joy as the moment came when this long awaited event would occur. The trumpeters sent triumphant sound waves into the air and the drummers responded. The talking drum in its unique expression made way for, and interlaced the songs of praise and thanksgiving that rent the air as the celebrants and their well wishers displayed their gratitude. The musicians spared no skill and the women led a dance procession in sync. It was a jubilant celebration indeed. It’s always beautiful to see the end of our journeys of faith – the birth of a child, graduation from school, a promotion at the office, receiving a clean...
