There’s greatness in starting small.

We don't usually think of it this way. The very notion of moving out in faith seems to imply taking a bold, extravagant step of some sort. We quickly think of the biblical prototypes: Moses parting the Red Sea, Joshua leading the Israelites to demolish the wall of Jericho with a shout, David marshaling his... Continue Reading →


Social distancing does not mean Spiritual distancing

Even though we are in the season of social distancing as a result of covid-19, we must not let it divert our attention from the only thing that matters or affect our relationship with God, rather it should draw us closer to Him. He lives forever As we celebrate Easter, know that the risen King... Continue Reading →


Living Life On Purpose

(Matthew 25:1-5)

We’ve heard and read the parable of the 10 virgins but permit me to take it from a different angle today to send a message across.

The Bible speaks of 10 virgins who went out on a mission. The goal of their mission was to meet the bridegroom. However, only 5 out of the 10 virgins were able to realize this goal why?

The five, i believe, had a well thought out plan. And that pushed them ahead of the other group which the Bible described as foolish.

From the parable, we realize the virgins went out to meet the bridegroom. And once there’s a bridegroom then there’s definitely a wedding and you know, there’s no wedding without a program schedule.

I believe these virgins received invitation to the wedding with details on when the program would commence- as people do even now on wedding invitation cards.

Complain may look logical, but thanksgiving is the only lawful way to go forward… 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NKJV)



The rich young ruler in the books of Matthew 19 and Mark 10told Jesus that he kept all of the commandments from his youth up, but the Lord quickly reminded him that he was lacking something.

That’s true for all of us. No matter how much we may try to live upright, we will always remain lacking in some area.

You may not be a fornicator, an adulterer, a drunk, a murderer…you may go to church every time the doors open. You may be very generous in your giving …


God HATES complaining. He doesn’t hate complainers, but He does hate it when we complain. One of Israel’s greatest, most consistent sins while in the wilderness was that of complaining and murmuring. In fact, it was their complaining that made an 11-day trip last 40 years.

God hates complaining so much he allowed His own children…

Pain is not all ‘that bad’, it’s a sign of health, your personal alarm system.

Should a Christian Wear Bikini?

Grace Over Pain

If you have been following my blog for a while, you will realise that i sometimes like to write on topics we often trend on carefully in the church. To be honest, this is one of the reasons why i blog. I was tired of reading and hearing believers not for or against anything. The spirit of political correctness has indeed invaded the body of Christ and it’s almost like it’s difficult to comment on anything without including a ‘safety’ caveat. I often tell people that we can’t be believers of Christ without studying His word. And personally i am not one to take what i hear. I take what the bible says. So this post like my other posts is going to be based on the word of God.

Should a christian wear a bikini?

Every time i have thought about this question (even before i was saved)…

Open Letter #11: To God, My Heavenly Father 

Joseyphina's World

(c) Google Images.


It’s me again. I know I’ve already knocked on your door to greet you when I woke up this morning. But in the spirit of celebrating a new month, I want to write you a personal heartfelt letter. I just thought of asking you how last night went but then I remembered, you never sleep. You keep watch over me day and night. Who can ever beat that?

For being with me right from my mother’s womb up till now, I want say a very big thank you. Honestly, all the words in the world fall short at how I want to express my gratitude for your never-ending love and care. Why you would love a deeply flawed person like me in the unconditional way that you do baffles me. Because sometimes I don’t even like myself. But you in all your holiness, still…
