Planning for retirement?

With the face app challenge one cannot just but wonder about aging and dying. Although life expectancy in the developed world is far greater than the expectancy in the developing world, it is important to think about death. For example as of 2016, life expectancy in Germany was 80 years old and in Nigeria itContinue reading “Planning for retirement?”

The Other

Happy 2017 people 🙂 So the break has allowed me to fill  lots of applications and its interesting that in most applications when I get to the gender specification dialogue box, it is either Male, Female or Other like the one below. What is this “Other”? Apparently, the third or other gender is a concept in which individualsContinue reading “The Other”

Nothing But A Pencil.

So I was reading the Left Behind series by Tim Lahaye and  part of the book had the theme of “doing what is best for you as an individual or what God thinks is best”. I find  it is very interesting because the basis for taking personal decisions in this world is generally the individualContinue reading “Nothing But A Pencil.”

Change it back to a moment

Yesterday in my break from my dissertation, I read a book that really touched my heart by Jesse Du Plantis and the maIn thing that struck me  is the fact that this life is a moment compared to eternity. So many times things get difficult and it feels like life is really hard and itContinue reading “Change it back to a moment”

To love

Today I learnt a valuable lesson about love, and about what this verse means.”And Jesus replied to him, “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 The second is like it, ‘You shall loveContinue reading “To love”

Attending to the Big Picture

Therefore then, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady andContinue reading “Attending to the Big Picture”

Reminder: Stop Complaining!

I couldn’t write last week because I slipped into not being content with any thing around (The British weather among other things). I wasn’t sure what to share because I was complaining a lot and wasn’t not sure God wanted me to share anything. I was confused,focused on the wrong things and just plain unhappy.Continue reading “Reminder: Stop Complaining!”

Being Christian and politically correct?

In recent times, I have been spending huge chunks of my time in learning about International Development and relating with people who don’t believe in my faith. It’s interesting because I am now confident that it is difficult to be a follower of Christ and be politically correct. I mean, even our saviour was veryContinue reading “Being Christian and politically correct?”

Be loved and love

So, in my recent interactions with people, I have discovered that lots of people actually believe in a “god”. Some people call him/her/it “Mother nature” , “the universe”  or just the “big man upstairs”. I have also seen that it’s really difficult to acknowledge Jesus as God and God as YAWEH, The father of JesusContinue reading “Be loved and love”

The Future

Recently, I started getting worried about what I am supposed to do with my life.It bothered me a lot that I didn’t know completely what I am supposed to do on earth. And of course, The one who loves me unconditionally directed me to his word. 1 corinthians 13:9 (NKJV) “ For we know in partContinue reading “The Future”
