Understand that you cant understand

A lot of times we ask ourselves why things didn't go the way we planned. Why we didn't get the things we asked for. We question God. Question him for our mistakes, our stupidity. Not realizing that this our God is not like ours. He aint silly like us. He's ever faithful.

Deuteronomy 7:9, ESV Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations


Is true things get really had at times. Especially when our expectations aren't met. it sucks I know. do you know something funny we do. We think we know God so well. We think we are familiar with his ways. we're like, "Okay I didn't get the job as a secretary. God probably wants me to get it at a bigger company." then what happens when that didn't happen? haha. Don't be mad at me oo..I know it hurts. But get this we can't understand this our God. His ways and thoughts aren't like ours.

Isaiah 55:8, NIV "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD.


He knows why things didn't work the way you wanted. And why you didn't get the things you wanted. He has better plans for you. Trust me, or better still trust Him!

Jeremiah 17;7-8, NIV
“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.”


Stop worrying my friend. or trying to understand. Understand that you can't understand and trust the Lord.

Proverbs 3:5-6, NIV Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;

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…

The Bigger Picture: Poem Alert

"You're too shortsighted                    To see beyond the wall
                     Even though tall
                     It could still fall

                    You're too shortsighted
                    To see beyond the mountain
                    Is a great big fountain
                    That is for now, hidden

                    You're too shortsighted
                    To see the rain
                    Isn't actually a pain
                    But could be of gain"

This is an extract from a poem of mine. This poem pretty much captures all I want to explain today. We all pass through trials and temptations and during those times its very easy to become short sighted. We loose sight of His love. Its hard to understand what's happening, why its happening or perhaps how exactly it happened. It is in times like these we are meant to trust God, not to understand, but just trust. I hav…

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…
