Month: December 2015

My Memory about the Loyola Sixty Angels is failing me (and I’m losing my mind).

Today is December 10. I remembered yesterday that today was December 10, but when I woke up late this morning, I was running late to my first class (as usual) so I ran out of my room and to class. (I showered and made my bed lol). So I forgot that it was December 10 today. During my second class today my friend Amber asked if I was sad because Aderike (a fellow Loyola girl) was. I wasn’t. I believed that after ten years, I wouldn’t be sad. And I wasn’t. Then this afternoon after work at 5pm, I went on Facebook. I saw several tributes to the 60 Angels, and my heart was broken. Does time really heal the wounds of grief, or do we learn to deal with the pain differently? That’s a question for another day.  Anyway, that wasn’t what hurt me the most. I am most pained because I am losing some of my memories of the sixty angels, and it’s freaking me out. I remember that there was this SS1 …

Spend More Time with Him!

Over the weekend, someone very kindly reached out to me and asked a few questions about their relationship with God. I am still very honored and I cannot believe it, but oh well, the Lord is doing great things 🙂 She asked very important questions that I believe we can all benefit from. Here is an excerpt from her email: At this point in my life, I won’t say I am still struggling because my relationship with God has become much better and I can see the impact it has had on my life, but I know it can still be much better. I want to focus more on understanding God’s Word and building a VERY solid relationship with God and I am not really sure what to do and how to do it. Sometimes when I pray, I don’t really feel anything. I pray out of routine and I don’t feel any spiritual connection but some other times, I feel something  especially when I am praying to thank Him for something. However, worship gets me. …

Open your mouth wide, and He will fill it.

  The Lord makes firm the steps     of the one who delights in him;  though he may stumble, he will not fall,     for the Lord upholds him with his hand. I was young and now I am old,     yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken     or their children begging bread. They are always generous and lend freely;     their children will be a blessing. Turn from evil and do good;     then you will dwell in the land forever. For the Lord loves the just     and will not forsake his faithful ones. Psalm 37:23-28 December has me feeling all types of ways. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that this time last year, I was praying and praying for my grandmother to get healed of a weird disease ( her lungs were failing and she had water in her lungs and heart). I trusted God– my entire family did. But on December 5, she went to be with the Lord. I remember the moment my daddy called, I knew at once that he was bearing bad news. But I braced myself and …

Disobedience is Expensive (Story Time)

Is God asking you to do something? Is He whispering in your ears? Is He tugging at your heart? It is in your best interest to listen. When we listen to God, we open the door to supernatural encounters. Let’s talk about Abraham for a moment. God asked Abraham to sacrifice Isaac, and when Abraham complied, God was so moved that He made a covenant with Abraham. Imagine making a covenant with the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Yup, till date, the seed of Abraham is blessed. If you’re a christian, you’re a child of Abraham, and you probably want to invoke his fatherly blessings over your life because God explicitly states that Abraham’s seed is blessed forever. Similarly, whenever God gives a command, He attaches a promise that is dependent on our commitment to doing His will. In 1 Kings 17, the Lord had already asked the widow of Zarephath to prepare a meal for him for the prophet Elijah, even before the prophet met her. If she had disobeyed the …
