Day 24: Be Pregnant with Patience

Ask a woman desperate for a child if she wants a child, “Definitely” would most likely be her answer. A few months down the line, she conceives and in the 3rd month, you ask her, “is it okay for the baby to come out now since you can’t wait to hold your baby”. She’s probably…

Day 21: Ladies, Leave That Train Wreck

Day 20: Be Your Own Bestfriend

Today has been the best Sunday for this year so far because I chose to spend it alone. Got back from church, slept, woke up, took my phone and entered a restaurant, watched a full movie alone.

Before Jesus was crucified, He required the help of a man who provided the room where he eat the…

Day 16: Stop Drinking Poison

“Go and make up with your dad”, the Pastor said. The lady looked in amazement. She had come to him for prayers because her husband’s business wasn’t​ doing well and she was yet without a child in 5 years of marriage. Instead of praying or binding one evil spirit, he only said: “go and make…

Day 15: The Ten Years Challenge

Yesterday, we had the #10yearchallenge where people posted pictures of themselves ten years ago, side by side with a current picture of theirs trending. It was hilarious seeing some “slay queens” and fine boys looking like people who escaped Somalia. Maybe I was the only person who looked breathtaking 10 years ago. Maybe. 😉😘😁 In…
