Why So Many Mistakes?

This week most definitely should be tagged, 'Mistake Week'. I mean from forgetting the money my mum told me too keep to loosing money, I mean why not? I forgot to give my baby bro water. Forgot to iron my uniform and then forgot that I wasn't supposed to use my bathroom as the plumber was yet to fix the W/C. Sheesh, I've been a scattered head this week.


I hate it  when I make stupid mistakes. Especially when I could have easily avoided them. Its so annoying! I honestly wish I had a remote control that could rewind me back in time (that would be AWESOME!). But I don't. So I'm stuck having to face the consequences of my mistakes I really wish I hadn't made. Sometimes I really don't get myself. I mean things could have turned out differently if only I did what was right. And I just don't mean simply forgetting something. You know that feeling when you do something wrong and you to feel guilty and start scrutinizing your actions. Your conscience becomes the dreaded judge of your life. Hate that feeling. I wonder why I seem to always mess up. It can be really frustrating at times.


But all in all, I do have to say a big thank you to my Lord, who has seen me through my emotional battles I've had to face as a result of my bad decisions. He certainly has been a father. Still listening to my prayers, though I do,t deserve that.


So to you Lord, I say a big thank you. Thank you for always being there for me. Notwithstanding the many mistakes I've made. Thanks for your listening ears 👂 Lord. You've always seen me through times like this and I'm truly grateful.

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…
