To be honest, I can’t remember what triggered the thought process that led to this post. But what I can remember is that shortly after I had briefly processed said thought, my brother played a short Joseph Prince message excerpt on YouTube for me. And I remember thinking, “that’s exactly what I was thinking in my head a few days ago.” Continue reading
So one day, a while back, I was listening to music via YouTube and if you’re anything like me, you have songs that speak to you during different seasons of your life and are always on replay (YouTube hurry up and do auto-repeat!). Like the song needs to sink into your spirit, soul and brain especially when the song says what you feel but couldn’t put words to. Before I become too deep, let me kuku carry on with what I wanted to share with you in this post. Continue reading

A few months ago I listened to one of the pastors of Bethel Church, Seth Dahl and he shared how he discovered he had a need to be or feel significant, of significance (I’m probably not quoting him verbatim, excuse me biko). What he said was like a seed planted in my heart. A few weeks after listening to him, it was also confirmed to me that I had a need for recognition. Although I am quite introvert-ish and tend to keep to myself, taking a while to let people into my life, I like to be spotlight-ed. #trueconfession
In and of itself, wanting to be recognised is not an issue unless I now start pursuing it so much so that I strive to get it from all the wrong sources. One of the things Seth spoke about was making sure his significance wasn’t from the number of likes or comments or re-tweets or re-shares or reposts of his online content – he LOVES social media, he says.

A couple of weeks ago, at the start of the Christmas break, I was reading the book of Haggai for my quiet time (devotional) that morning. At the time also, it had been on my mind to resume my daily exercises that I had stopped since last summer. Even though my BMI index is alright, I couldn’t say I was fit as my only exercise was climbing up and down the stairs at work and walking about while teaching and going to and from the toilet and my car! I think my body was now accustomed to these, it did nothing for my strength nor energy levels by the end of the day.
So while reading the chapters of that book, I read them through the lens of exercising – one of the ways we can take care of our bodies, the temples of GOD (1 Corinthians 6:15-20). And shared next are the things I ‘saw’ through those lens and almost verbatim what I wrote down in my journal. Continue reading

Only GOD knows what you thought I was going to be talking about in this post given its title . . . lol.
Recently, I acquired a ‘new’ freezer. Now this freezer, let’s call it Zen, was new to my house, not new to being used . . . lol. In other words, I bought it second-hand, thanks to Gumtree. And thanks to proximity, I was also able to get it from the ‘shop’ to my house in Bumble-Bee. My brother was away so I had to lift it from Bumble-Bee’s boot to its final destination under the counter. Continue reading
They say habits can be formed in 21 days. It’s been 21 days since my last post and before I form the bad habit of not writing daily and diversifying the portfolio of my life besides work, I needed to publish this post that has been marinading for almost a month now. My apologies to you my regular readers. Thanks for reminding me, you know yourself! Continue reading
