Lyrical Healing

       The power of lyrics is immeasurable. The words can cut through hearts, mend broken wounds, bring untold comfort and uplifting of our spirit.
       Throughout this year I have seen and felt the power of music. When I was broken He music healed me. When frustrated, it brought motivation. When angry it showed me the mercy of God. When lost it showed me light. When sick it brought strength to my body.
       God is working into our hearts. In many ways. I have discovered one: Music 🎼🎹🎶. Through music God speaks directly to me. He tells me not to worry, shows me my faults and brings so much gladness to my heart.
       The Holy Spirit brings a song to my heart and when i sing it it brings an activation of my spirit man.
     
       I'll share one of the ways in which music has brought lyrical healing to me. My junior WAEC (West African Examination Council) was only a few weeks to commence. i began to fall sick critically. I would have eye pains and continually run a fever. this broke me both physically and spiritually. I became easily angry and frustrated and it was like all my faith had melted away.
       I felt that way and i regretted every action that i took, as i saw ever activity I partook as a waste of time. i tried to read every possible minute I had, but nothing went my way. I refused to do anything else but read and continued to put my body under unnecessary stress. I would strain my eyes reading in the dark until almost midnight and it seemed like nothing to me. all this weakened both my social and biological relationships.
       as the exams became nearer, fear encrypted me. I became sorrowful and cried practically every night.
       Then the Lord gave me an instruction. each time I read I played music- as led by the Spirit. It brought such comfort and motivation tom my heart. i slowly began to see my faults. I would condemn myself and always continue to do things my way, forgetting that there is only one way.

John 4;16: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth and the life, no one cometh to the father but by me.

       I started to ask Jesus to guide me and  I learnt to trust him. By the grace of God what came out during the exams were what God lead me to read.

       The are three main points that I am trying to make by telling you these story

  • There is power in music, so be careful the kind of music you listen to. Proverbs 4:23: carefully guard your heart for they are the source of life.
  • When things that the enemy is planning against you begin to work, it means you are wrongly positioned. position yourself in the word of God.
  • God is with you every step of the way, even when you do not realise it, planing ahead of you. 
  • call out to God anytime you are in trouble. Isaiah 58:9: Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry, and he will say, "here I am"

    Note: The term lyrical healing isn't something I just made up, it has existed ever since. proof? read the bible and see how Saul is delivered from his demonic attacks. through the playing of the harp by David.

The Power of Mentorship

We were about to leave.  Everyone had participated in their activity except me but it looked like I was going to miss mine.  Worst of all I wouldn't be there till the end of the of the program.  It was an exciting and insightful experience and boy was I glad my mum had forced me to wake up and go to church so I could attend the Teens Fellowship which my church had been invited to. 
My heart was beating real fast as shyness did a long dance in my mind.  I so badly wanted to meet him.  I knew this was a chance of a lifetime, not one to simply close my eyes and pretend would come back again and maybe if I missed it again it'll still come back like a simple pendulum of opportunities, oscillating in my favour. Taking a deep breath I tapped his shoulders, knelt down to the level of the chair and introduced myself, "Good evening sir, my name is Emmanuella..." Then he put his arms around me and suddenly I felt calm. Yes, I was legit talking to Mr Zion Oshiobugie, The Academ…

Still I Rise

“You may write me down in history
With your bitter twisted lies
You may trod me in the very dirt


But still, like dust, I’ll rise”
The above is an excerpt from the poem ‘Still I Rise’ by Maya Angelou one of the most renowned poets of all times. I just love this woman (She’s late by the way…tears). This poem is a personal favourite.
In the course of our struggle, success story we will encounter setbacks- fact. We’ll experience disappointments, betrayals, failure. But it’s all meant to make you greater, give you a new strength and increase your wisdom. So do not lament over issues instead give joy and thanks for it is another opportunity to learn something new, break records and refine yourself.


Yes, I am aware it’s not easy during times of difficulty but you have to learn to have a resilient spirit that says, “No matter what happens, how big the obstacle is, how tired I may seem, I will not give up, I will not let the problem overcome me. I shall conquer, possess and achieve greater he…

What if I was Given 5 Talents?

The Parable of the Talents is one that currently has me feeling guilty. Why?  I'm mighty good at being passive, at having logical and acceptable excuses for not doing a task. And I've been able to fight my 'silly' conscience pretty well that I now I fear for my lack of guilty feeling.  (I'm a weirdo.  Yes I know!)

If there's one thing I admire my mum for it's how she gets things done.  How she sees something wrong, and suddenly BOOM!  a strong ambition is born and she's fights with all her heart to fix it.  I on the other hand am a different variety of her genes. I think 🤔.  While I am aware of problems and can write up a beautiful solution to it or ponder deeply about the problem, doing something about it means I've given myself a hell of pep talk (by that I mean my mum or someone else has)  or it's a do or die affair (according to the convincer). This is not to say I'm some bottled up person who stays mute. Nope! I can do stuff ...fix stu…
