What is Accountability?

Image
Hello ladies and girls, Today, I will be writing on an interesting topic: accountability. *To be accountable means that your thoughts, words and actions are consistent and in alignment with one another.  *An accountable person does not say one thing and mean another.  *An accountable person has integrity.  *When you are accountable, you accept responsibility for your actions and for the results of your choices in life. I have realized that there is no way that one can achieve anything meaningful out of life, without being accountable. Let's look at some practical scenarios and see what it means to be accountable in such scenarios. 1. In your place of work, or even as a student, there's a project you are supposed to do, but you are not able to do it because you don't know the steps to take to do it. Being accountable implies asking for help, reading materials, getting knowledge, sometimes even taking a course to learn how to execute the project. Not being accountable, will m

Ladies on Purpose Interview with Omolola Victoria Ajide

I met Omolola in church about 3 years ago and I can say that she is a lady on purpose. She has such a contagious passion for God and for ladies. She has got a load of values on her inside and we are so privileged to interview her on this platform. *CAN WE MEET YOU?* My name is Omolola VickyTreasure Ajide from Kwara State Nigeria.  The convener of God’s Outstanding Ladies Platform (GOL), A Baker and an Event Planner😍 I Love to Sing, Write and Enlighten Ladies. *WHAT WAS YOUR TEENAGE YEARS LIKE?* Let me put it this way, I wasn’t your typical arrogant, self-absorbed, rebellious teenager! I was actually quite the opposite; I was respectful, matured and pragmatic.  I didn’t have insecurity issues, didn’t care about keeping up appearances, make-up or even dating! More so, peer pressure was never ahn issue for me as long as I can remember, the ages of 14 – 18 Years was a very interesting time that I would wish to go back to if I had an opportunity. I enjoyed School (Boarding House); I met so

Two attitudes you should have as you enter the new year

Image
Hello ladies and girls,  Yipee, the year is coming to an end, it's something to really be happy about and look forward to. Every new year, every new week, every new day is always an opportunity to make changes, retreat, adjust and move.  Personally, I look forward to weekends, because it's always an opportunity to amend the mistakes I made the previous week, make corrections and implement in the new week. And that's the same with a new year.  Just imagine if there was nothing called new, and we are just living on and on like that, we will be so bored😄. There's something about newness and God is a very wise God to have planned it all that way. Times and seasons are in his hands. Glory💃. The end of the year and the coming of a new year therefore is a big deal. It's not something to take casually. It's an opportunity given by God for us, to make changes, to make adjustments, to think again, to replan, and to restrategize.  And you know what, God gave us such of t

How to develop a personal relationship with Jesus

Image
A personal relationship with Jesus ought to be every individual’s ultimate goal and desire, because we were created by Him and for His glory. Notably, a personal relationship with Jesus flows from an in depth understanding of the precious sacrifice that Jesus Christ paid for us to be accepted in the beloved. Subsequently, this deep understanding and realization then causes us to respond in no other way, but to wholly live for Him who has loved us with an everlasting love and has drawn us to Himself with His loving kindness. O  my  soul, you have said to the Lord , “You are my Lord, My goodness is nothing apart from You.” Psalms 16:2  Whom have I in heaven but  You? And there  is none upon earth that I desire besides You. My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalms 73:25‭-‬26 These 2 passages from Psalms reveal such a great depth of what it means to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The psalmists (David and Asaph) had b

The importance of God's word

Image
The word of God can be defined as any spoken or written message of God to mankind. The spoken word of God are the words that God speaks to us personally or through ministers of God. The written word of God are the words given to us in the scriptures, that is, the Bible. In whatever form, whether the Bible or the spoken word of God, God's word is very powerful. The Bible contains God's word, written for our benefit as believers.  The Bible is like a blueprint for us. Every thing that a believer has to know about God, about life and in fact about any issue of life, can be found in the Bible. After you get born again, one of the things you should do is to take the Bible serious. All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16‭-‬17 NLT I was reading in a devot

Should you cohabit with your fiance?

Image
Hello young lady and teen girl, Today, I will be writing on a very interesting topic.  " Should you cohabit with your fiance?" Cohabitation is an arrangement where two people who are not married live together. There are two types of cohabitation that I know: 1. Campus coupling, commonly practised in tertiary institutions where a 'boy friend' and 'girlfriend', are living together. 2. A legal arrangement of partnership, practised in some developed countries, where two people live together, for years, mostly throughout their lifetime, even bear children, but without the 'marriage' attachment. This partnership is fast replacing legal marriage. I will focus on the first type of cohabitation I described (the campus coupling). What are the reasons why people cohabit? 1. Some couples claim that they should live together to see if they are compatible or not. 2. I love him so much that I can't let him go 3. Financial pressure,  that is, to save money. 4. Acc

Hello, Welcome again to our sexual purity testimony segment on this blog.  The aim of this segment is to share testimonies of how ladies kept a sexually pure courtship with their fiance and to also let you know that some people are still choosing to be pure in the midst of the things that goes on in the society. Meet our guests for today: Hello, my name is Dorcas Omodieke and I am married to August Omodieke (The best gift God has given me after salvation and the Holy Spirit). Testimony This is our third year of marriage. God has been good to us. Most of our courtship was long distance, though towards the end (final six months), we got to stay in the same city 'Gboko', and then the last two months, he relocated to Abuja. When we started our courtship, we were both in Gboko. We were colleagues and met at the work place before sparks began to fly, hallelujah. Then he got transferred to Borno, Maidiguri. I was still in Gboko so we had that long distance relationship. Sometimes he w

How can I maintain a sexually pure relationship?

Hello lady, How have you been? I have missed you (covering faces).  So, for a while now, I have been writing about sexual purity.  Today, I will be writing specifically on how to maintain a sexually pure relationship. I think that one of the major challenges that people in courtship faces, is maintaining sexual purity.  There's no doubt that God's will for us is to be sexually pure. I have addressed this in my previous post . We are sexual beings and when you are in love with someone, that sexuality wants to find expression in displaying your love to that person.  However, for a believer in Christ, such expressions should wait till the right time before they are allowed to find expression. The right time is marriage.  So, how do you then maintain sexual purity in your relationship? 1.  Have a clear purpose for your relationship and even for your future marriage You have to settle the issue of purpose. Why are you in a relationship with him? Answers to that question w
