Motivation

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...

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...

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...

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...
