Eating banana and honey.

Recently heard people say that honey and banana could be enjoyed together, at first it was awkward to me until I decide to try it out on Saturday. It did turn out to be a delicious dessert and so yummy. I have researched on the benefits of consuming such and it was really overwhelming.

Spiritual Plagiarism

And so that was how I sat in my room thinking of something else that matters to me. Truth is, I didn’t know, neither would I be able to tell what sparked off a thought that came into my head at that moment.

I took my phone and began to type. It was barely 45mins, when I got through with the post. How the ideas flowed was an amazing thing, effortlessly, it consistently flowed.
At first, I was reluctant to share the post. I know how the people on my friend list react to most of my posts, “see and pass” barely a comment talk more of suggestions so I was scared of speaking out of context and so, refused to share the post until the next morning.

While I had my devotion that morning, two more ideas pooped into my head, I paused to include them in the existing eleven before I could lose them. Yet, I was still not convinced to share, I kept reading through for what could raise questions I may not be able to answer and trying to join some missing links and hoping to see the reason I should share the post “Dear Teenager”.

I eventually shared it on my page, on my timeline and on few other platforms. That was really unlike me, I did it with closed eyes and a hanging breathe. When all the post submitted, I refused to check their status, I went about my daily business until the notification became much and to my greatest surprise, God had spoken to so many young people.

Putting up the post was less strenuous but it engaged more people unlike some of my previous posts. I couldn’t but pause to ponder how an unplanned and a few minutes post could attract so much recommendations and commendations.

How come it spread like a wildfire and seem to have blessed more lives than most of my previous post? It was because the Holy Spirit authored it in my mind and he also took the message to the people it was meant for, therefore, so many young people contacted and others personally prayed for me because I was the physical author. When I read through one of the mails, I grinned from ear to ear, and I gave a response. I felt like someone asked me, “do you know what spiritual plagiarism is?” I was quiet for some time and that was it! I understood what that prompt meant, I had plagiarized.

Now I ask you,
“Do you know what plagiarism is?” I am a librarian and should and able to tell you a little about plagiarism; it is an academic misconduct among which is also found examination malpractice, fabrication of original report, colluding purchasing of essays etc

It therefore is the duplication of intellectual work or ideas without the corresponding acknowledgement of the original creator of the work (Bretag, 2013; Park, 2003)
Do you ever feel impressed when you notice someone took your intellectual content, removed the disclaimer and acclaimed it to be his? Well you may not have experienced it but, it is so painful seeing people credit someone who stole from you while none acknowledges you for the hard work.

So, that was how the commendation began to overflow its banks and flowed like a free flow of fountain from the mountain top. It was so overwhelming and unbelievable not because of the likes and comments, there were not much, but for the impart it made on few young people, the confession and repentance.

That was how I forgot I was just a medium through which Christ ministered to certain people and Boom! Delight got carried away. I got so engrossed in receiving the commendation.
Now follow me
As the recommendation began to roll in; first day, second day and the third day, SMS, mails, calls and numerous other chats.

The daughter of man got carried away. The flesh part of me rose its head, then the response changed to “thank you” “thank you for reading” I am glad you love the write-up” “I am glad you are blessed” “thank you dear” I barely had time to say “amen” to their prayers and kind wishes, let alone acknowledge the original author; the one who relayed the message for his people. I was sincerely overjoyed to even notice how far I had relegated the original author to the background and robbed him of the credits, I took them unconsciously.
Understand this, like I mentioned before, the likes and comments are far below what Mrs. Chinaza Favour gets on a simple post or what Angela Nwosu gets during a cash or blue eyes giveaway (funny but true), so the likes and comments were not the reason for the joy. I was only overjoyed because the message the lord sent was able to get to most of the people he authored it for.

This was evident through the people who made a personal contact to bless God for using me.
Most times, in the journey of destiny and becoming, we keep praying and asking for a voice to minister the message of the lord “oh lord! Send me or I won’t go, oh lord, give me the message or I won’t speak. You are the way the, message and the destination. Please lord, give me a voice” we pray daily; morning, afternoon and night, resisting anything that will make us die as echo and pleading to be used.

That was how the lord sent some, and gave them a voice. He decided to make them a medium through which He speaks to certain set of people. Then we begin to rob Him of His glory the very moment God began to reveal Himself, reveal the truth through us to some who are yet to understand, and we sometimes unconsciously or consciously take the glory of God; who revealed what should point the people to Him or what changed people through you.
Spiritual plagiarism is a serious matter as it is in real life. Spiritual plagiarism begins from our mind.

The very moment you feel that the appreciation you gain from doing what God helped you do was deserving, the very moment you project yourself instead of God, the very moment you begin to feel self sufficient, the very moment you feel you got it by your intelligence and smartness, the very moment you feel you are still living because you live smarter than the dead, the very moment you allow pride creep in like an innocent child and you begin to feel it was by your power, (chuckles) you are on the path to spiritual plagiarism.
“Then I will say to myself”… (Luke 12:19-20), you know the rest of the story.

It is not of him that wills or him that runs but of God that shows mercy (Romans 9:16)

Three Questions You Should Answer Before You go into a Relationship.

Teen series: Relationship 201

Chioma got to her new school, she was indifferent about the inter-school transfer until she got to the school premises, the wall paint was faded, the blocks were too dirty and the lawn full of grasses. She wondered how she would survive in her new school seeing that no one even noticed her presence, so she avoided connections with other students because they were too timid for her liking; she stayed alone until Kelvin caught a sight of her one afternoon during recess. She didn’t believe that someone like Kelvin could be in such a school. They easily bonded because they were both city returnee. They did everything in common and they studied together. Everything was all right until Kelvin caught his lips in a lock with Chioma’s. When they both realized how they had trespassed, Kelvin avoided Chioma and Chioma was down with guilt. Suddenly, Kelvin returned to Chioma and requested they became more than friends, Chioma felt she was not ready for a relationship with Kelvin, she was just 13 and Kelvin 17.

“Do you think I am ready for a relationship?” She asked

____________________________________________________

As young as Chioma was, some parents do not see any obligation to discuss relationship with their young, thereby leaving these ones to seek answers on their own. Sometimes, friends fill them with erroneous information and other times they buy advice meant for adult consumption.

Some teenagers are under the pressure of going into a relationship because of the numerous groups where adult dating advice is given without discretion. Social media is not a disadvantage but it has made worse imparts than good on our young ones when it comes to dating and relationship.

One of the common questions I get from teenagers is “At what age do you think it is right to start dating” I look at them and smile, sometimes, they wish I could give a specific answer but I don’t even know any specific answer so I turn to them and say” I understand your desire to be with someone who thinks you are special, I felt the same way too. I know your need for someone who gives you some sense of belonging but the age at which you should say yes to dating depends on the reason you want to be in a relationship.

 There may not be any spelt out age someone should go into a relationship but it depends on one’s ability to handle the responsibility that comes with being in any relationship.”

 During my NYSC, my new friend told how she willingly got married at 12 and as at 2017, she was still in marriage, at 23. What if someone restricted her because they felt the age was not right? Who knows…

Irrespective of the beautiful scenerios, the burning sensation and the love malaria you experience, you must do a soul search with these three questions before you venture into a relationship:

  1. Do you want to be in a relationship?

As a teenager, it is very common for you to feel the way you do; it is actually not abnormal when you feel the urge to be with the opposite sex. It is development and hormones at work when you feel you need a boyfriend or you want to have sex. But the question is if you actually want to be in a relationship or your friends want you to be or you feel it is the right tag for a big boy/ big girl. Do you want to be in a relationship or you feel you are the only one who is yet to be in one or your friends feel you are possessed by some demons or you lack the ability to handle the opposite sex?

Whenever the urge to say yes or ask someone to be your girlfriend comes, ask yourself “why?” if you do have a justifiable purpose to go into a relationship as a teen or you think the answer you have given yourself is worthwhile and okay, you may need to answer the next question.

2. Can you be in a relationship?

It is one thing to think you have the ability to do something and it is actually another to have the ability in actuality. When you feel you need to be in a relationship, do you really know that relationship is work, it demands responsibility; you have to be accountable for your decision. Most times, teenagers fail woefully because they do not have the right knowledge about what they have ventured into. If the only reason you want to go into a relationship, is to satisfy the desire of being with someone whom you consider special and one who considers you same, have you asked yourself if you can also handle the bitter part of being in a relationship. Do you also know that a relationship is the connection of two people, which can flame a wild desire that you may not be able to manage, which leads to sexual immorality and subsequently, abortion.

Being in a relationship will require your time, energy, sometimes go extreme to require your body (sex), it will require you lose your independence and most often it makes you lose yourself as a teen. Do you think you give up all just to feel special? If you think you can do these and must be in a relationship now, maybe you consider the last question.

3. What do you think will be your gain at the end?

Sometimes, teenagers rush into relationships even when they do not know what to expect and they know they are not ready. Imagine a 13 year old who feels she is going into a relationship with marriage in view. Do you think at your age you won’t regret your choice of a life partner in 6 years time? What you feel you need in that person right now may look way awkward and childish when your age is 21. How do you expect to help someone when you have not found yourself? A relationship is not for someone who does not even know what he wants talk more of helping another become something. Do not mistake your crush on someone for love. Forcing yourself into a relationship when you do not have a view in mind is like sitting for an examination when you don’t need the result for anything.  Be wise.

In conclusion, I leave you with my advice.

Dear Teen, there is a way that seemed right in your sight but the end therefore is death so Seek ye first the kingdom of God, seek to serve the lord as a teen, seek the right knowledge, seek wisdom, seek self discovery, seek to lay a better foundation in your academics, and seek to become emotionally stable before you seek a relationship because there is no time too late to start and build a relationship.

PS: Parents don not recruit the devil to teach your children what you are too shy to teach them because you will live to regret your wrong choice of a tutor.

Beauty and the Beast -A Monday morning lesson.

The Beauty and the Beast.

I occupy the apartment on the ground floor of a storey building. Behind the house and close to my kitchen window is the house sewage.

I woke up on the right side of the bed, so I gladly did my dishes while happily preparing my yam porridge after what seemed like ages. It was not as if I just heard the rush of water into the sewage for the first time but I heard it with understanding that morning🤣.

The other tenants upstairs could have used their toilet or bathroom.

Just immediately, a thought I want to share with us came into my head. I thought of the beautiful shades of the building, I thought of certain awesome buildings in cities, and it also occurred to me that each could have a waste bin and a toilet 🚽…

There is usually a little beast in every beauty. (Another verse of roses also have thorns.)

Wow! I that thought made me giggle all afternoon.

**********************
I remembered the story of a sister who called off her engagement because of a character flaw she noticed in the brother (may be she should have tried to help the brother, but he refused to help himself… Just saying).

Certain people have ruined opportunities given to them by God through certain character flaws. Certain ministers have ruined ministry because of character flaw, certain marriages have collapsed because of character flaw. Some people have left their spouses because they felt the person across the road has no character flaw only to discover a worse case.

Unfortunately, everyone has a character flaw; it is our weakness. 

Sometimes, over zealous and over righteousness people who claim they have no character flaw try to assassinate others in public while they carefully battle theirs in secret.

Character flaw could really exhude so much negative influence on others. So, a brother met a beautiful aunty and uncle couldn’t handle her temper, uncle kept going around looking for “Miss Flawless ” 😂
Mr. Or miss flawless could just be a dictionary word.

Now my take, God has made everyone beautiful and bright but despite how handsome or pretty a person is, irrespective of her online Sermonization 😂, irrespective of the jimjim, Upandan gimmicks, everyone has a character flaw.

Even though everyone has a character flaw, do you ever wonder why it is as if some people are in a self battle while others are in control? Do you ever wonder how some people manage what you are still struggling to overcome?

Then follow me.

There is none who is superhuman. They once struggled like you, they could have once expressed wild anger and broke bottles, they could possibly have struggled with lust and so on.

Then, what actually happened?

There was a discovery which led to a consciousness which had help them to get intentional about change.

Hear a similar view of Apostle Paul to this matter of discourse.

“Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away.
2 Corinthians 12:8

9 Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.”  So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.”
2 Corinthians 12:9

Apostle Paul was not of the opinion that you remain unbent in your flaw. He had an understanding and could have pleaded for a permanent removal, but the Lord gave him grace to manage it. That is one of things that make us fallible and human.

Could you please stop saying “if you don’t like me, fuck off” and accept the grace to manage and be in control of your flaw?

The first call to action is to discover it yourself. Sometimes, discovery comes when everyone points a finger.

Secondly, accept the fact that you need a change, no change happens if you don’t recognize the need.

Third, don’t deceive yourself by saying “this is who I am. If they can’t accept it, I don’t have a space for you”. Most character flaws damage one.

Fourth, understand that there is no character flaw that can’t be managed and sorted under God. This doesn’t mean that you could become perfect over night, for we walk towards perfection…

You may have a different view, share if you care.

Dear Teenage Girl.

Get your seat and your writing pad. I have something to talk to you about today. You know, I have watched you over the time and have realized your need to hear this from your big sister. Big sister has the obligation to help you get through the thick and also advice you on how to avoid her mistakes.

Now write as I talk but most importantly, carve them on the tablet of your heart.

  1. There is nothing special about being on big girls gang. It is so common for you to feel you have grown, especially when you look up yourself in the mirror and see those changes that have taken place in various parts of your body. There will be temptations to be like the other girls but don’t let that worry you. I heard your friends tell you all the benefits, but listen to big sister, those benefits are illusionary if you jumped steps.
  2. You have a mind of your own. Don’t let anyone deceive you into what isn’t good for you. Don’t let them tell you “you are just a child, you don’t have the ability to reason”. I am not asking you to take certain decisions without the help of reasonable and responsible older people but I am asking you not to allow anyone pressure you on issues that are not right for you or take advantage of you being a teenager.
  3. What your friends do are not always the right thing. Sometimes, they make you believe you are missing so much for not doing certain things they do. Listen, they lied. What is morally right should be your priority. Don’t let your friends set wrong standards for you.
  4. You don’t need to have a boyfriend when you are not ready. I understand you may have pressure from guys, especially with the kind of beauty you posses. I have heard your friend tell you how you are not a complete woman if you didn’t have a boyfriend. I know you are human with emotions but learn to put them under control until you can handle the responsibility that comes with relationships. Dear teenager, they lied again when they told you that boys give you life essence. Don’t let them push you like they tried to push me. Listen, don’t let them use certain cliches to initiate you into unwanted burden.
  5. You don’t need a boy to survive. My baby, listen, you have equal hands, fingers, and brain Cells like that boy close to you. Don’t listen to lazy girls who exploit or depend on innocent guys to survive. Be a responsible lady, take care of yourself, Pay your bills when you can, learn to save and manage money, be intentional about finances and don’t forget to see that guy as a fellow human and not some automated money making machine, that’s if you don’t want to become an object of self satisfaction and slave.
  6. Virginity is not timidity. Don’t let them deceive you into believing that strong rods of iron may be used to deflower you when marry. When they tell you, you wouldn’t be able to give birth on your own, you won’t be able to satisfy your husband after marriage and when you are married, you won’t be able give birth at all, don’t mind them, they lied once again.
  7. Dear sister, I understand your breasts have grown so well, they are not meant to feed your area boys. They are meant to be part of your private parts, cover them well. Preserve them them till you are free to use them to fulfill the purpose they were given to you for.
  8. When you grow taller than your elders, it is not a yardstick to become disrespectful to them. Respect everyone and most importantly, your elders. You lose nothing when you greet an elder you are obviously taller and bigger than. In fact, you have everything to gain when you do. Honour your father and your mother, that it may go well with you and you will live long on earth and prosper. Don’t imitate young girls who abuse elders.
  9. Take your studies seriously. You are not disadvantaged for being female. You can be everything great which you have set your heart to achieve, don’t set wrong priorities. Aim high and work hard, the sky would be just a stepping stone.
  10. Be courageous. You don’t know the much you can achieve by just being courageous. Wait! I was once locked in a room by a man I considered my Uncle in church, when I was just 12, he wanted to defile me but I was courageous, though deeply fearful, yet I looked him straight up and told him “if you dare touch me or force me to your bed, I wouldn’t only tell my parents but I will also call the police on you.” I don’t know where the courage to speak came from but I know he was fixed at the point he was until I stormed out of his room and started off to school again. I was an introvert but I was courageous at the time. The second time I came face to face with such situation, I felt crying and begging could save me, if not for God, it could have happened. Be courageous and wise.
  11. Listen, don’t let anyone tempt you with what your parents, you and close family members can’t afford. Whatever you or them could not afford at that time is actually not meant for you at that time. Look, what I am saying is this, don’t cut corners to look like your friends, don’t ever feel intimidated by their ways of life. I tell you, everything you could not afford now, you will afford better when the time is right.
  12. Everyone should not be your acquaintance. This was my mistake and I was saved by grace. Anyone you can’t meet their material life standard, anyone who doesn’t believe in morality should not be your friend, anyone you compete to wear exactly what they wear, should not be your friend. You know why? They may compel you to derail by forcing yourself to step up their level. Accept good challenges and keep improving yourself.
  13. There is no age at which you could begin to relate with your maker. God is God for both old and young. Listen, the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. If you desire wisdom, embrace him. He is always willing and able to help you. Just talk to him about your needs. When you are pushed to the walls, fall back on him and He will rescue you. Trust him with all your heart and He will direct your path. Don’t let them lie to you again “Enjoy your youth and serve God when you are old enough” is a lie from the devil. You are not sure of tomorrow which is the reason you should serve God today. Be your best and see the best.

I am still your big sister. Let me know what you think. Reach out to me via delight.udochukwu@yahoo.com.

I will be waiting.

What Do You Need.

Handsome Abeyomi was given a blank cheque. His foster mother and sister thought he was going to ask for something reasonable. They kept begging him to state his demand, even the mama was scared he could ask for something she may not afford. It was not long before he muttered something under his breath. The woman didn’t understand until the foster sister explains that he wanted “that thing that they fill in air which doesn’t last long before it bursts”.

Just after the explanation, then he said again “bolobolo” 😂 Hey! Jesus! So this boy cried for days only to request for a balloon that burst the next minute, and he continued his cry from where he stopped.


When I watched that part, it reminds me that I could have been that foolish when God has said “Ask I am listening” then you hear me say “God I need a husband who has 27 packs” 😂. I sure believe at that moment, angels will look at me and shake their heads in surprise.

That’s by the way, but you know, sometimes what I feel I need from God, that same thing that makes me groan in the place of prayer daily, could only be a lone branch which when it dries fades away.

Each time you have opportunity to ask, first ask for sense, then proceed to ask beyond your wants.

THE PILLS

THE PILLS 💊

It is unbelievable but true how people live on pills daily, it is obviously true how people smile and celebrate health while they live on pills, it is unbelievable how people go about telling others to be grateful for not living on drugs but they live on pills themselves. You wonder how and I tell you, so many live on falsehood and lots of LIES pills_

Hilarious huh?  Alright let me explain.  I was a captive to lies and a slave to its master the devil. I lived in fear and bondage of what I believed because I was an eye witness, and the burden was unbearable.

I began to live off on lies pill, I began to believe all things including those which God never told me. Irrespective of the fact that I studied the world each day, what I had gone through held me bond in unbelief and blinded me from the truth.

Now you ask me again, What is a lie? A lie is that which is contrary to God’s promises and purpose for your life and the devil is the founder of all lies and the father of liars. (John 8:44).

  Though so many believers in Christ and other persons recite this ” I know the thoughts I have for you, thought of good and not of evil”, yet some are still held bonds by the devil’s lie because that truth has not been made manifest to them, and they still hold onto many beliefs that are contradictory to God’s word.

I remained captive to lies until I read an article that addressed a similar matter to this article, the only part I still remember is “whenever you want to give in to information that steal your peace of mind, remember to ask “who told me so?” ( Genesis 3:11), Aaaaaaahhh! That alone through the help of Christ brought me deliverance.

Dear friend, the Devil is the father of lies and could manifest itself through even:

Your spouse
Your best friend
Your prayer partner
Your colleagues
Your mentor
Some preachers
Your Doctors
Your parents
Etc.
This he (the devil) does just to truncate your destiny. He gives these lies to you like a harmless pill and you continue to live on it.

May be you didn’t know that a lie is a truncated truth. Hear it now, *a lie is a truncated truth that truncates God’s mandate over your life.*
Take for instances:
God tells you he shall satisfy you with long life and the devil keep giving you dreams where you died at 30.

God tells you it is his wish above all things that you prosper in good health as your soul prospers and your doctor just confirmed cancer cells growing in your breast.

God tells you that children are your heritage from him and you have just been told that you wouldn’t be able to give birth ever again.

God tells you he is your Shepherd but you are so scared of tomorrow and survival means that you have decided to go back to Egypt.
Oh no dear, that is so dangerous!
etc

The disadvantages of living on the pills of lies and falsehood are: you lose your peace of mind, you live in fear, you live below your potential, you live in doubt and sorrow, you live in bondage, you stop hoping and start depreciating. Etc

Remember, what you believe you are responsible for, how you live is 80% what you believe, your good state of mind is 95% what you hold dear and believe.
                But
*How can you know lies when you don’t know the truth?*
How can you know lies When you don’t know what is written in volumes concerning your life?
How can you know lies when you don’t understand the voice of he (Holy spirit) who has been sent to tell you that truth? (John 16:13)

Let me end the questions by asking few last questions,
How much lies have you absorbed and believed already?
How terrible and pathetic has your life become as a result of living on the truncated truth you have believed?
Listen! It is not over yet because there is good news for you, go back to him who knows the whole truth concerning you. In him there is truth and he is the truth and life. “They shall know the truth and the truth shall set them free”.(John 8:32). Please pack those lie pills and dispose them, they won’t give you life, only truth would.
God bless you.

A letter to single sisters

undefined

Dear Single Sister,

I didn’t want you to sweat away your strength because we have loads of talk and time, so I brought this table and chairs under a comfortable shade.

I must really be grateful for this time you have committed to this discussion.

Dear sister, it was not easy watching you from a distance without apt opportunity to talk to you. I must begin by admiring you. I have lots of things I admire about you, I admire your beauty, I admire the much you could do as a single, I admire your strength and courage, and I admire your commitment. I know you are not perfect and only walk towards perfection, which is why I am not here for judgements 😳.

To tell you how fallible, I am too, I must tell you little about myself. I gained admission into the University when I was past 20, though it was not the much I planned for myself. I had planned life the way I wanted it to go, as if I was God🤣. I had even fixed dates for certain important events, even before I was sure I could live till then. Sometimes, due to the dates and seasons I imposed on myself, I had to work under duress. I achieved some, lost some and never achieved some. I was lost in self pity, I lost my strength in unnecessary struggle and I even locked horn with frustration and depression because I wanted to meet up with the time I had set for myself and till date, I am yet to achieve some, I messed up big time! I am still cleaning some mess.


Dear sister, is there something you want to tell me? I ask because, I have noticed certain things about you.

Sometimes, it is as if you work to meet a deadline, some other times, it is as if you are on a race with someone. You know, most times when I tried to understand you, you act as if you are carrying the whole world on your shoulders; frustrated and desperate.

Aunty, what is the problem? Could you please discuss with me? I could be a true confidante, you know🥰

If you don’t want to say anything, then, I guess all these melodrama is about YOU, STILL BEING SINGLE. Well, I have always assumed it could be the problem and now, I am sure.

Aunty, you know what made me perfectly assume your problem? It is because, I have watched you compromise your Christian faith, since you felt that what you expected to happen for you in the church seem to be happening faster and better in the world.

Aunty, I saw you dressed to kill last night, I guess you eventually obliged Sam a nice moment at the club. I have watched you bend God’s standard rules for your life because you felt it is no longer in your favour, I have more often than not seen you in Emeka’s car, I saw you in Jude’s shop this afternoon and I have as well seen you at Sam’s house sometime ago. I do understand you keep these three men because, you feel time has been long spent.

I have watched you smile at things you used to frown at; he slapped your breast and bum and you smiled at him feeling that if you don’t loosen up, he won’t give you the ring,

Aunty, I have also seen you seated comfortably in the midst of scornful because you feel they are the custodian of the right information to getting a man walk you down the aisle, you have given up the relationship you once had with God for a relationship with Kunle, now, Kunle has got you pregnant.

You committed your first abortion, and you are dressed to go back to your Doctor of doom for your 5th abortion, because Nuhu has promised you a society wedding, if only you abort the child and give him a little more time to get more money, I saw you smile and say it was alright. “After all, it was just an embryo” you said and walked into the Doctor’s office.

I remember the first time Stanley kissed you, I saw how much you cried, I saw you apologize for your unruly act, but the second taste of his kiss, romance has been the spice in your relationship, though you console yourself in the fact that there is yet no penetration and you use it to exonerate yourself from being disobedient to God’s law, as if you are still on track with him; do you know that deceit is now lying like a dog a doorstep?

You quit church programmes, quiet time, and godly fellowship because Adeyemi promised you marriage, and you rather miss your quiet time than miss his early morning invitation to his house. Now, he understands how desperate you are for marriage, he has used it as his hook of captivity.

I know how all these started, just like me, you arranged your calendar according to the your needs. When you turned 24, you thought marriage was the last but one item on your calendar, when you turned 29, Bro. Iyke, refused to propose, even when you felt God was saying something. “Dear God, I have waited enough for you, now, let me work things out for myself” this was the last thing you told God on your 30th birthday and since then, you have been on the journey of working things out for yourself.


Dear beautiful sister, how far have you gone already and how easy has it been for you?

Do you remember those ten virgins in the Bible, yes! In the book of Matthew 25?

The foolish and wise virgins your pastor preached about the last time you were in church; 6 months ago? Okay!
Did you hear sister Amaka, read verse 5 aloud?
In case you didn’t, it is here,
“As the bridegroom was DELAYED, all of them became drowsy and slept” Matthew 25:5.

Dear sister, because the bridegroom seemed delayed, you have slept. Look, the oil in your lantern would soon get exhausted. Did you not know that the bridegroom came when they had slept? If a cry come tonight, don’t you think you would have no oil remaining to go see him? Aaah! Aunty, marriage is not all there is to life! What if marriage doesn’t come? So, your whole life essence will hit the brick?

Aunty, instead of sleeping, instead of imposing pressure on yourself, why not go for extra oil now that you still can? why not rest on his words and wait for him?

Look, the difference between the virgins was just Wisdom, and God has said in the scriptures, “He who lacks wisdom, let him ask from me… “.

Why not ask for the Wisdom to remain faithful, waiting in purity and in preparedness for the bridegroom?
Do you still remember that they that wait upon the Lord shall renew there strength, they shall soar on wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary and they shall walk and not faint?
I can’t understand how weak you are already in waiting, but, their access to renewal of your strength. I pray He finds you worthy when he shall come.

Let’s continue to intercede for us, we are on this table together. Let’s pursue purpose and trust Him to do what He does best.

Your Sister,
