Being Friends With God

Last year, I had the opportunity to work towards building a friendship I am totally grateful for now. Although at the time we spent most of our weekends together because we had the same weekend commitments, I knew I wanted to take it a step further. Currently, we talk every day and are very much involved in each other's lives. We have built our friendship over the months and we are clos[...]

Read Your Bible Knowing The Person Of Christ

The only day I had no school was on Saturdays. I had to do regular compulsory basic education on weekdays and attend Sunday School on Sunday mornings without fail.   During my Sunday school days, teachers shared stories from the Bible and either admonished or refrained us from acting like the characters we studied based on their nature.

A Letter To Jesus

Happy Birthday, Jesus! It's a holiday all over the earth because of you. It is funny how we all join in the celebration whether we think it's your birthday or not. Did you throw a party today? How old are you again? I am wondering if you get excited about your birthday like we do on earth. How did you celebrate it as a child? You got the opportunity to celebrate 33 birthdays here. Wa[...]

A Letter To A Christian

Dear Christian, I am particularly elated about this letter. I am a Christian just like you are. This makes us family. Can I change my salutation from 'Dear Christian' to 'Hi Fam!'? A quick recap of what happened the moment you accepted Christ as your Lord and Saviour. Heaven rejoiced. A party was held in honour of you. Literally! The angels, God and Christ, I believe did a special da[...]

Just Do It ...you are limitless.

It is usually hard to start any new venture. It's a mix of emotions with a bag of bittersweet expectations. You are likely to think about all the things that can go wrong and feel all kinds of fears - fear of failure, fear of criticism, fear of embarrassment and fear of acceptance. Here's what I know. Once you start, you will realize that things are different in your head than in real l[...]
