#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe- God Always Has a Plan

 

plan

As a firm believer in the God of the Christian faith, I have made my way through my journey in life always with the assurance that I am never alone and that one way or the other, all things will always work out for my good. It is one of the most reassuring feelings honestly, having faith in Someone you cannot see but whose essence is captured quite easily in a lot of the things you see around you. That is not to say that there will not be moments of doubt. I have just learned over time to feed my faith and starve my doubts.

2017 is only halfway through yet I believe I already have my biggest lesson for the year. Continue reading

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – There will be Storms…

Zee

Life has taught me that people can turn against you so easily. Even those with the best intentions. Even those you least expect. This is one lesson that gets me scared. I remember instances where this lesson has been forcefully crushed into my brain and sometimes I am numb. I have learnt that best friends might become sworn enemies. People you trust can betray you in a split second. And so I am naturally wary when it comes to making new friends or keeping friends. Because I figure, they might leave eventually. Don’t get me wrong- I am not bitter. People who know me would tell you that. But now I understand that people can just up and leave. It happens. This has helped me stay strong when that happens or when I have been hurt by people. Continue reading

On Moving On!

Moving on

It was supposed to be easy. After all, it was always easy. But it is not the case right now.

What have you done to me? Why I’m I the one dragging my feet in the emotional ocean that ‘Love’ has cascaded over my soul?

I was the best at walking away and leaving them hanging. How did I get undone? The chess champion has been doused. It was all in the name of Love – Now blindsided, no more playing seven moves ahead. Continue reading

Letter to My Unborn Daughter

unborn daugther

Dear Daughter,

I wonder what you will look like…

Will you inherit your grandma’s long hair?

Will you smile with your eyes like I do?

Will you be musically inclined like your grandad or will you play sports like your great-grandad?

I’m chuckling at the thought of you being short like me. Either way, you’ll always be perfect in my eyes – fearfully and wonderfully designed by the most exquisite Creator.

I don’t even know what your name will be yet, but one thing is certain; I will love you with all my heart.

You should know by now that though there is a lot of good in the earth, there is also evil. Continue reading

LETTER TO MY FANTASTIC FRIENDS

FF002

Hey Segun, Tobi, Shina, and Tiwa; I don’t know if you guys have noticed that the first letter of our names either starts with ‘S’ or ‘T’? Quite a coincidence right? The eerie part is when you guys realize that right after S comes T in the English alphabet.

Meeting you guys wasn’t a coincidence, we blended well like tomatoes and pepper (You all know who the pepper are right?). You guys are the best people that have joined my life in the past ten years. Well, except my girlfriend because she isn’t a people (Winks). Continue reading

Letter to my future husband

images 001

Hey love,

Please use this time to find God because, even if it took me this long, I have finally realised that until you find God, you can’t find me in the right way.
Right way being the right methods, methods that will help me know it’s you.
You will need to do more than finding God for us to work. Loving him or at least trying to is also a necessity.
After that, please find yourself. Continue reading

Letter to Lily

Dear Lily,

My beautiful flower…

I am so excited to be writing to you.

Oh, how I have thought about the moment I will get to hold your tiny feet and behold your innocent green eyes (the green eyes yeah, that’s from your mother).

I remember the day we found out we would be having you: it was on a Sunday evening and I had just gotten back from a European worship tour with Travis, Taya, and the entire Hillsong United team – yeah, we go way back…

Immediately your mom revealed the overwhelming news; “I Am Pregnant”, waves flashed through my brain and I wasn’t quite sure what to expect… Continue reading
