Rhema...




A few days ago, as I was studying the scriptures I received this word from the Lord in Mk 4: 38

" Master don't you care if we drown"? That was the question the disciples asked Jesus when they felt that they were drowning. Actually after reading that bit of scriptures, I had a few questions that I equally asked. Lord don't you care about this and that and the other one, plus this other one....



But in the midst of it all, I realised that in spite of all the questions I asked, which I might receive answers to or never receive answers to, what matters is that He is in the boat with me and at that point, I came to a place of rest. Coming to a place of rest however does not just happen. It requires a determination to believe in the face of what we call reality that might be really daunting, a resolve to be still regardless of the raging of the storm, it requires believing in what we know from the word of God even when it seems the foolish thing to do. Just because we know that the foolishness of God is wiser than man! May God give us grace to remain!



At this point, I remembered my Anglican hymns which I miss from time to time & thanks to God for the rescue. Those hymns remain classics 🙂

Life Is What You Make It...


Because UCB is my favourite devotional.... due to the practicality and reality of their write ups.
Please read and be blessed! Link is at the bottom in case you want to subscribe.
Have a fab Friday.


The story’s told of a wise old man. Every day he and his granddaughter would sit outside his petrol station in rocking chairs, waiting to greet tourists as they passed through their small town. One day a tall man with the appearance of a tourist started looking around like he was checking out the area for a place to live. ‘So what kind of town is this anyway?’ he asked. The old man replied, ‘Well, what kind of town are you from?’ The man replied, ‘One where the people are critical of each other. It’s a real negative place to live.’ The old man said, ‘You know, that’s just how this town is too.’ 









Later, a family passing through also stopped for petrol. The father stepped out and asked the old man, ‘Is this town a good place to live?’ ‘Well, what about the town you’re from?’ he replied. The man said, ‘Where I’m from everyone’s close, and always willing to lend a helping hand. I really hate to leave it.’ The old man smiled and said, ‘You know what, that’s a lot like this town.’ After the family drove off, the old man’s granddaughter looked up and asked, ‘Grandpa, how come you told the first man this was a terrible place to live, and when the second family asked, you told them it was a wonderful place to live?’ The old man looked into her big blue eyes and said, ‘Sweetheart, no matter where you go, you take your attitude with you – and that’s what makes it terrible or wonderful.’ Yes, life is what you make it! Which is why the Bible says, ‘For the happy heart, life is a continual feast.’

Encouragement..... Do It!

Today a friend from Canada sent me a link on Mission statement published by www.tekedia.com. She never knew I was already hooked to the blog to the extent that I actually introduce people around me to it.  Once I saw the link, before I even clicked on it, I responded "I love Ndubisi's writing" to which she responded me too! I have gotten so much inspiration from his blog www.tekedia.com. It's like my go to blog site at the end of the day. As I plan to become a successful entrepreneur, I get so much knowledge and insight from his page. I follow him on Linked In and few moments ago as I read his post, I said to myself
 "why don't you send him a mail, if he has been such a huge source of inspiration"?

Encouragement is one thing that is lacking in our world today. We are so quick to critic, but when someone is doing something really great, we sit on the sidelines and sometimes even act indifferently like its a walk in the park. I never cease to encourage people that inspire me, I must say I am so generous with that. It might be because, I don't want them to stop doing what they do because I know, its easier to get discouraged than encouraged.

When was the last time you encouraged someone? Be it someone you know or even a total stranger?

See the message I sent to Ndubuisi. It's genuinely how I feel about his write ups. You could check out his blog and maybe you might just get hooked like I am😊, depending on what your interest is...


Hi Ndubuisi,
I must say I love reading your write ups and I am so proud of you. Today a friend sent me a link of your write up on Mission statement without knowing I already follow you and my response to her was "I love reading Ndubuisi's write up" to which she equally concurred. Thank you so much for inspiring us through your writing, humility and achievements and for being a good example to young folks (especially us millennials) for encouraging us to do better and "be more", for proving to us that hard work pays and most especially for teaching us that a good head is a fantastic asset but the right attitude will get us farther than our intellect ever will.
 God bless you!
