A GOOD thing or a GOD thing?

Hey fam. This post has been a long time coming! It has been sitting in my draft box for over a month now. When this topic was dropped in my heart to write on, I’d scribbled some words but it ended there. For some reasons I never got to pick it up again until now….

A bride fit for a king

It was 1:45 am and the knock on my door had pulled me out of my deep sleep. “Who could that be?” I was curious because I was expecting no one at this hour. I swung my feet to the marble floor and made my way downstairs. My heart throbbing in fear and my weight on…

Spiritual burnout|lessons from Martha

Have you ever experienced an emotional roller coaster ride that no one else seemed to have  recognized? Ever found yourself at the verge of giving up because you felt the workload was just too much? Have you ever lost the spiritual zeal to carry on God’s work? “I’m tired and frustrated.  I can’t do this…

Review: Prayers for your future husband by Frances Okoro

Some years ago, I met a friend who told me she prays for her future husband. I thought it was ridiculous. How could one possibly be praying for a man whose name she does not yet know? I also had to remind her I was just 16! It was too early to start praying for…

This thing called Jealousy

(**clears cobwebs and clears throat ** I know. It’s been a while 🙈.) As a kid traveling was one of the things I always looked forward to probably because it was just once in a year – for Christmas. The preparation & the journey were always more exciting than the destination itself 😁. I had…

Thy brother’s killer or keeper??

I remember being so down one evening. I laid on my bed like a wounded warrior or let’s say I was actually wounded. I couldn’t pray… yeah, the enemy really hit me so hard. I reached out to a friend… because that was all I could do at that moment. I can never forget my…

Identity crisis… who really am I😖?

Everyday I spend a lot of time staring at the mirror to see who is there … Sometimes I see a different person Sometimes I see someone familiar yet strange. I tried to fit in but then they said I did not belong there. Like a cloak I have put on an identity that is…

I let my guard down!

What seemed to be a nap turned into a deep sleep. I was awakened by the sound of feet crunching gravel against the ground. Without even looking up I knew whatever was approaching was so close. Each footstep rang out like a booming heartbeat of a criminal that has just been sentenced to death. As…

Trapped (part two)

Click 👉 Trapped (part one) Kam woke up to the sound of the rain lashing down on the rooftop. She had left her window open all night so her room was extremely cold. The weather wasn’t encouraging. It was better the previous Sunday. As she stared at the ceiling unpleasant thoughts flooded her mind. She had…

Trapped (part one)

Waking up was a nightmare for Kambili. She was sitting with legs crossed and knees spread wide apart on the Sandy shore all alone, the cruelly narrow horizon staring at her just before her alarm 🕠 went off. It was much better there. If she had her way she would go back and never come…
