Deuteronomy 28:3-13

These were the promises God assured the Israelite of having in Canaan, so long as they obeyed, served and acknowledged him as God, almighty. The Bible said we are joint heirs; (having a part in the promises and blessings they enjoy as God’s people) with the Jews because of Christ death and our belief in him and the resurrection. I appropriate this over my day and that of my household daily.  I will be blessed in this city and blessed in this country. The fruit of my womb will be blessed, and the crops of my land and the young of my […]

Colossians 1:9-14

  I ask God that you fill my husband and I(my children, siblings, parents e.t.c) with the knowledge of your will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that I may live a life worthy of you Lord and please you in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of you, God,  being strengthened with all power according to your glorious might so that I may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to you Father, thank you Father for qualifying me to share in the inheritance of your holy people in the kingdom of light. Thank you for rescuing […]

Proverbs 31:10-31

These verses of the Bible is like my comfort pillow for who God sees when he looks at me and who he wants me to be. I can go back to them over and over again. I am a wife of noble character who can find? I am worth far more than rubies. My husband has full confidence in me and lacks nothing of value. I bring him good, not harm, all the days of her life. I select wool and flax and works with eager hands. I am like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar. I get up while […]

Ephesians 3:14-21 (NIV)

  Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, I pray that out of your glorious riches he may strengthen me with power through your Spirit in my inner being,  I ask that Christ may dwell in my heart through faith. And I pray that I, be rooted and established in love,  and have power, together with all your holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,  and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that I may be filled to the measure of all your fullness oh God. To you father, who is able to do immeasurably more than […]

These declarations are God’s word that I hold on to daily(I don’t get to say them daily as much as I use to but I try by God’s grace to say them at least once or twice a week). I use the declarations as prayer for God’s purpose, reminding God of his promises, protecting/shielding my husband against infidelity, reminding myself of who God says I am, prophesying over my family and many more. These declarations are not only for married people, far from it! if you have read my post on Praying ahead then you will know this is for both […]

TO LEAVE OR NOT TO LEAVE

I saw the news on the kidnapped children and I am very happy for the families and the school. I cannot begin to imagine what the parents would have gone through; thank God they came back safe, we were all praying for them. I noticed something while reading the story on their thanksgiving in the school, one of the parents gave a testimony on how his son called him with the mobile phone of one of the kidnappers which he mistakenly left behind. He called his father to ask, if they should escape, the man missed the call and the […]

Right Question?

My daughter comes back home from school informing me her teacher left her in class while others went out to play. I asked her, “what did you do?” She said she didn’t finish her food. On another occasion Nugie came back from an outing to report that she was denied a treat and I asked again “what did you do?” I thought that was the best or fair way to ask whenever something happens to them which wont make me biased. While asking “what did you do?” the question kept echoing over and over in my head and I realized I […]

who wants to move my cheese?

After teaching my daughter a lesson on unconditional love, (Read it here) I heard her often telling me, her father or anyone who displeases her: “You are no longer my friend.” I decided to investigate. “Tori, you should not withhold your friendship because people don’t do things your way, it’s not right.” Then she replied, “Mummy, but Peter (her classmate) always says it to me in school.” Now, this is where the issue lies, the school is filled with different children, different homes and upbringing. All my good intentions and teachings may not be agreed with, aside that, there are those […]

Spare the rod…what rod?

Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go and when he’s old, he will not depart from it. How do we foster independence in our children,helping them become confident adults? What’s wrong with kids doing house chores and picking up after themselves? Instead of parents or house helps doing everything for them because we want to save time, “help” them or we don’t want to trouble them. What’s wrong with holiday jobs or skill learning in place of holiday lessons? Do they really need that holiday lessons? Why is a child working considered suffering or degrading […]

My Monopoly? yours? whose?

I came to the room to meet Tori and Nugie playing with their brother. I saw that all the buttons on his pin-up was undone, and the weather was cold. “Why did you unbutton his shirt,” I scolded as I buttoned him up, they kept quiet till I finished my rant. Then Tori spoke up, “but Mummy, you removed it yourself before you went to the kitchen.” Apparently I had unbuttoned him with the intention of changing him but forgot. I was nonplussed and didn’t know how to bluff my way out, I just had to apologize to them. I […]
