180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 98

I went to bed late-ish. I was in bed at around 12:00am. I was beat, tired, exhausted…. By 7:02am, my eyes popped open. I had no alarms. I heard no disturbing/alarming sounds outside the house. But still, my eyes popped open. I wanted to cry. I asked Daddy, “Why am I awake this early?” Then…

The prerogative of mercy… and the Trinity. Prerogative means, “a right or privilege exclusive to a particular individual or class” (Google).

I am truly grateful for this season. In the midst of the pandemic, in the midst of fear, I am able to hold on to God and find peace. Did I tell you about the God who delivered the 3 Hebrew boys from the fiery furnace? (Daniel 3). The focus is normally on the fact…

Another day of listening to that still small voice, and again it was the right choice. I woke up and went to my dining table – my new work area and class/study room – at 9:00am. I began preparing for 2 upcoming tutorials as I waited for an online work meeting to begin at 10am….

God speaks through dreams…. The other morning, just before waking, I dreamt that I was at my grandmother’s house. She was lying down on the floor, resting. While I stood beside her, I began thinking about the popular statement people normally make. The statement goes, “thank God for waking me up this morning.” I always…

Some times I forget…like for the past two (2) days, I’ve forgotten to post. But the beauty about him is that he never forgets. Never. (Well, except for our sins which he says he will remember no more Hebrews 8:12). He never forgets to deliver, to keep, to bless. I serve a God who never…

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 91

Some times we have too much “faith” in God to move mountains. That should be our focus. Our focus should be, “God can move this mountain. And even if he doesn’t, I’ll still serve him”. Our focus should be, “God, I will be obedient to you. But if I don’t live to see your promises…

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 90

Sunday is my designated day of worship in a building and with the church. Today we look at a God that loves to be worshiped, adored, loved upon, told sweet things… However you want to say it, God absolutely enjoys praise and worship. After all, many persons find pleasure in persons telling them “nice” things….

For I am conscious of my transgressions and I acknowledge them; My sin is always before me.Psalms 51:3 AMP There are some sin that we forget we ever committed. But then there are others which plague our minds day and night. Acts of disobedience that we regret and always feel unforgiven for doing. Though we…

My [only] sacrifice [acceptable] to God is a broken spirit; A broken and contrite heart [broken with sorrow for sin, thoroughly penitent], such, O God, You will not despise.Psalms 51:17 AMP No one likes to receive damaged goods. Whether it is something newly purchased or handed down, people generally like to see the item in…

This “work from home” approach is throwing off my routine. Nevertheless, I am thankful because God is awesome and is working this out for my good. Below is a verse that I rely on often. It reminds me that God is my source of joy and not things/people in this life. Restore to me the…

And the pandemic continues with no immediate end in sight. But I do believe that God is able to stop it abruptly or sooner than projected. And even if he doesn’t, i will not blame him or be angry at him. I will still serve him. Just because you are faithful in all your ways…

It’s an easy fix. When the Lord told me that the sin that so easily beset me was an easy fix, I agreed but I never imagined how easy it actually would be. Similarly, Jesus told the Pharisees that he would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days. Unsurprisingly, they did not believe…

His body was in the tomb but his spirit was on the grave/sheol. In Hebrew, sheol is the place of darkness in which spirits of the dead go. Without going too deep into theology, I want to show/remind you that God is not just concerned with the living but the dead also. 1 Peter 3:19…

Today, today, today. Oh my God!! Today is a celebration of the easter period and a memorial of the ultimate sacrifice. Today, Jesus completes his mission to die for the sins of man. Grateful is not enough to describe what I feel. Teary eyed 😭 😭 😭. Today, he was bruised, beaten, and mocked. Today,…

There is one characteristic about God that I love but don’t always fancy. No child likes to be punished, reprimanded, or chastised. But it is absolutely necessary for correction and growth. A parent punishes, repramds, or chastises their child(ren) out of love. Good parents will not see their child(ren) doing the wrong thing and not…

Imagine visiting a new country. Everyday you’re there, your host has a new place for you to visit. Each day, there’s a new culture to experience, something different to eat, something new to do. That’s the aim of this journey. For me to share where I live with God: what he has done for me…
