Anger at God

My first pregnancy, I came across a book, “supernatural childbirth” which is basically talking about getting pregnant, carrying the pregnancy, delivering the baby all without stress and complications. It also discussed delivery without pain…this I was interested in because I always wondered if Eve was cursed in childbirth and Jesus came to liberate us from every curse, then we are not suppose to be experiencing pains or trouble in childbirth right? Whenever I spoke about this to people, they just gave me this blank stare, so I learnt to shut up and keep my opinions to myself. Well…when I came […]

Missed Calls

I sent Tori to get my phone from my bag, she refused, so I sent Nugie instead who ran to bring it. Tori on seeing her sister bringing the phone, starts crying because she has changed her mind. I gave Nugie a thank you hug with a high-five. Tori cried harder because she wanted the Thank you from mummy. I had to look for something else to send for so she could get a thank you too, she didn’t want something else, she wanted to bring the phone but when she realized that wasn’t feasible, she settled for getting something […]

ORIGINAL? FAKE? OR CLUELESS?

Driving back home from work I saw a crowd gathered recording and taking pictures of a scene with their phones, as I drove closer, I saw it was a man praying for an insane man; from the look of the mad man he had spent years in that bondage, I was in traffic so I couldn’t stop but I heard someone say sarcastically as I drove away: “he doesn’t want to give up, allow this madman go in peace.” I thought to myself, “Why is this man embarrassing himself, what if that madman doesn’t get delivered?” what makes you different from […]

I only see in part…

Samuel, my seven months old baby is hungry and the whole world knows by his screams. I am pouring out his food and it has to be the right temperature before he takes it. He doesn’t understand why he should wait, he keeps screaming, struggling and holding my hands, it doesn’t make the food come any faster, rather it only delays the food because I am distracted trying to keep him calm and mix his food. While the struggle is going on, the Holy Spirit impressed on my heart “that’s what you do, when you don’t get answers to your […]

Ephesians 1:17-19 (NIV)

God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, I ask that you give my husband and me (my children, sibling e.t.c) the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that we may know you better. I pray that the eyes of our heart be enlightened in order that we may know the hope to which you have called us, the riches of your glorious inheritance in your holy people, and the incredible greatness of your power available for us who believe you.

Against Infidelity

Isaiah 66:11 New International Version My husband will nurse and be satisfied at my comforting breasts; He will drink deeply and delight in my overflowing abundance.” Proverbs 31:11 King James Version The heart of my husband does safely trust in me, so that he shall have no need of spoil. NB: When soldiers go to war, the things or treasures they carry from the conquered army or nation are called spoils of war. A man already rich will not need spoils of war, just the way a king will direct his soldiers to take anything they fancy; you will not […]

Misconception:Children

I see and hear mothers asking for food or things to give their children that will make them fat. When my sister had her baby, they tried everything to make her add weight; no matter what she ate, she never added rather she got stronger and very fresh. I do not really blame those who want their children chubby because that’s the accepted norm for healthiness as seen by most. My children are usually chubby while being exclusively breastfed but during the transition between breast milk only to food with milk, they drop (as in drastically), two of them added over […]

Breastfeeding

Pregnant for the first time, I made all the research I could on pregnancy and everything involved. After seeing the merits of exclusively breastfeeding I decided to take the route. Since I already took a stand for exclusively breastfeeding, I was prepared with information against any argument. The first argument was giving the baby supplements like gripe water, seven seas, Abidec, and so on. I asked the doctors and Google, I was told all the baby needed was only breast milk if its exclusive, I was able to have my way when I showed my mother the proofs and what […]

Unconditional Love

I have always struggled with accepting the fact that God loves me unconditionally not because of what I have done or will ever do. How is that even possible, I keep asking myself. Sometimes when I don’t see reply to my prayer requests I think, “maybe I’ve done something wrong. I am beginning to accept the love of God and growing in it daily now. One thing for sure,I don’t want my children growing with that false mentality of God’s love being conditional, (I don’t even know how I cultivated the mentality myself). Tori refused finishing her food. I always […]

Can God Speak to me?

When I hear people say, “I hear from God or God told me…” I use to think they were lying or exaggerating. Then I wonder, why am I not hearing or how else do I listen? Well…now I know God truly speaks to everybody. In my case motherhood cleared the cobwebs that blocked my hearing, maybe it’s the realization that I am way in over my head or the fact that HELP ME LORD! is my every breathe prayer I don’t know but I have seen that God is interested in every little detail. Two instances among others are: First, after […]
