The Woman in the Mirror

Has anyone ever died from a broken heart? I saw a movie a long time ago where a lady died from a broken heart. I mean her heart literally broke in two. I think of it and it's funny. Lately I've been thinking about decisions - the big ones. Like where to live, who to … Continue reading The Woman in the Mirror

Of listless weeks and Unexpected Wins

When I awoke to 2018 all I wanted was to go back to sleep. The following months were a disaster waiting to happen despite all efforts to make them better. I was failing woefully and not even with class. Until now...

Operation Andrew

The Cathedral Church of Christ, Marina (CCC) is the oldest Anglican cathedral in the Church of Nigeria. The foundation stone of the first building was laid in 29/3/1867 and the cathedral established in 1869. While the construction of the current building began 1/11/1924 and completed in 1946. But this isn’t about the church as we … Continue reading Operation Andrew

When It’s Never Enough

My new friend and I walked down the length of the University’s road in search of an ATM. It’s been less than 30 minutes after feeding on what was no doubt the most decent meal we’ve had in weeks—not decent because we couldn’t find anything to eat all these while, but because we could finally … Continue reading When It’s Never Enough

An All Excelling Love

For by grace you have been saved through faith---Ephesians 2:8a As the day draws to an end, I am again swamped by the boundless, encompassing love the Father has shown to me, the world, in his son Jesus Christ. I have been unworthy and in Him been found worthy of death--death on the cross. I … Continue reading An All Excelling Love

Are You An Old Soul? (On Reincarnation And Spirituality)

It’s a common belief in this part of the world—Africa—and certain religious circles—Hinduism and Buddhism—that the souls of loved ones who pass away reincarnate i.e. are reborn into this word. As a Christian, I am hard-pressed to disbelieve this, but some things happen that make me rethink my position. My dad is of the opinion … Continue reading Are You An Old Soul?

Ends and Beginnings

Discombobulate. That's my word for 2014, alongside befuddled, arduous and complicated. It was the most horrible I've had in all my twenty-ish years of existence, and if the stories and conversations I have had are anything to go by, then a majority of the world population share my sentiment. I am glad to see a … Continue reading Ends and Beginnings

Religion, Faith, And The Ministry Of Fear

How strange is it that those who should have the greatest weapon of war, turn out to be the most fearful? Few weeks ago on my way to work, I mounted a bike that left my trouser legs begging for a wash. On alighting I asked the driver for permission to use his rag to … Continue reading Religion, Faith, And The Ministry Of Fear

A Good Day For Change

My cousin Megan was the most annoying being my eleven years old self had encountered. At six she was a scrawny looking firecracker; at ten a full blown typhoon. Having spent a considerable part of my teenage years in a boarding school far from home, I had to make do with spending short holidays with my … Continue reading A Good Day For Change
