Incorporating fitness into a busy schedule is hard and exercise is often the first to get chucked in the bin. But with a little planning, it’s doable. My name is Ifeoma Chukwu, 35, (until July, 16) and a mother of two big boys. I’m so in love with myself that sometimes I fear it might even be a sin. Being in the body you’ve always wished boosts your confidence. By creating time…

Following Jesus is easy when life runs smoothly; our true commitment to Him is revealed during trials. One of the salient truths I discover from the scriptures is that there’s no testimony without a test. Your faith will always be tested. Nobody receives divine testimony without in one way or another passing through the University of Divine Test.  The fact that your current situation is hard doesn’t mean it’s not…

Your Talent is an Asset.

“God has given each of you a gift from His great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.” 1 peter 4:10. God is forever in the business of dispensing gifts to His children. To some He has given the gift of singing, dancing, and acting and to others, He has given the gift of preaching, writing, plumbing, drawing, painting etc. What are you doing with your…

The nos I have got from God are enormous. They are unexpected and disappointing. But I have since realized that God’s “painful” no is in reality, a beautiful YES. When I look behind me at the slew of nos, I see how each one led precisely to a much needed yes. Some years ago, it seemed as though my life was crumbling like a pack of badly arranged cards. I…

True giving

Think about what questions you will be asked at the close of your life on earth. Nathan Schaeffer says, The question will not be, “How much have you got? but “How much have you given?” not “How much have you won?” but “How much have you done?” not “How much have you saved?” but “How much have you sacrificed?” It will be, “How much have you loved and served?” not…

  .The road to success is always under construction. Yesterday’s formula for success is tomorrow’s recipe for failure. Reverting to the familiar when under pressure is an exercise in futility. When Prophet Elisha’s servant, Gehazi, held up his Master’s walking stick over the dead son of the Shunem woman, there was no sign of life. Elisha didn’t waste a second holding the stick downwards and upwards. He immediately understood that…

Trust In God

July 9, 2019

Are you currently going through a seemingly insurmountable situation? Pitch your tent in the land of hope. It may not be easy, but the reward will blow your mind. It may not even turn out the way you thought or on your timetable, but God’s ways are better than our ways. This is what trust is all about. Those who hope in God will not be disappointed. “The expectations of…

I understand that there are tragic things that happen in life and certainly times when laughter would be inappropriate, but there are many things that we let make us sad and depressed when it would be better if we laughed more. Life isn’t meant to be reasoned, it’s meant to be lived, not reasoned, and not discussed. Trying to figure out why things didn’t work has you frazzled, completely out…

     My brother and I were on our way to work when we hit some heavy traffic.  Since other roads were alien to me, I decided to hold on until the traffic controllers arrived. My brother didn’t waste a split second as he immediately reversed, and signaled me to join him. I nodded amidst smiles; even though I knew I wasn’t moving an inch from where I was. That…
