Book review: Precious Jewels Devotional by Dorcas Omodieke

Image
Hello Ladies and Girls, How are you doing? Sometimes last year, a dear friend and a precious sister, Dorcas Omodieke published a beautiful devotional 'Precious Jewels' for ladies. I had the privilege of reading this devotional and that it blessed me, is an understatement. Reading through it opened my eyes yet again to a lot of things about my identity in Christ. Every topic in the book was explained in a simple manner, and yet very deep truths were shared. Here are some profound truths as shared in the devotional: *God made you for a special purpose *God is very detailed about you and you are precious to him *We are called to know God *We love Him because He first loved us * I have the ability to speak and create And many more truths of God’s word. Today, I will be sharing with you, a portion of the book.

5 things that Valentine's day is not

Image
 Hello Ladies and girls, One of the reasons why some Christian circles frown at the idea of Valentine's day is the numerous atrocities that happens on this day. A lot of people have a warped mindset about what the day is about.  When I was in the University, I remember that Val's day was always a day when some ladies will go out in the night to God knows where and come back the following morning. On that night, if you walk round the campus, you will find campus couples in strategic places doing all sort of smooching with themselves. In fact we always joked about the way you will see some ladies walk in the hostel, days following the Val's day. We would say that they were walking that way because of the sexcapades that they were involved in, the previous night. When the purpose of a thing is not known, they say, abuse is inevitable. You can check my post here on 5 amazing things to do on Valentine's day.  In this post, we will be looking at 5 things that Val's day i

5 important things to do on Valentine's day

Hello Ladies and Girls, Hulalala, it's val season again. Love in da air🤣🤣😋. There are always a lot of talk about the origin of valentine and whether Christians should celebrate valentine or not, but I am not in for those talks today😋😋. This post is about 5 amazing things you can do on Valentine's day. 1. Thank God for His Love The highest and purest form of love is God's love to mankind. It was God's love to the world that made him to send Jesus to die for our sins. God loves the world, so much; everybody in the world. If you are a believer, you are no longer 'the world', you are His child, He can't love you less. He probably even loves you more. God loves you so much. He loves you deeply and passionately. Nobody can ever love you as much as God loves you. The highest revelation you can ever have, is the revelation of how God loves you. It will change everything for you. He who is forgiven much loves much. The goodness of God brings repentance Everyday

What does it mean to accountable to people?

Image
In this article, you will learn about accountability to people.  Self Accountability  is important but it is not sufficient. There's need to be accountable to other people. Accountability to  people is a great tool for growth. Accountability to other people does not mean that you do not believe in yourself. It only means that you care so much about your goals and you are ready to put everything in place to achieve them. Do you know that there is a drive that you have, to achieve a goal, if you know that there are some people that you have to report to, or that there are some people you are responsible for, and that are watching behind you? Everyone needs to be accountable to people. Categories of people to be accountable to includes your parents, your family members, your friends, your pastors,  your colleagues, your mentors, your coaches and your teachers. As a married person, you should be accountable to your spouse and your children.  Accountability partnership is also an import

How can you be accountable to yourself?

Image
In my last post, I wrote about what it means to be accountable . When we hear accountability, the first thing that comes to mind is being accountable to someone. That's very important, but I like to say that its important to be accountable to yourself first. Accountability to self will propel you to seek to be accountable to other people. When you take 100 percent responsibility for holding yourself accountable, your performance will improve, your relationships will flourish,   and your self esteem will grow. Your life is your life. It's nobody else's life. You need to be responsible for it. You need to take charge of it. When you are held accountable, you will be able to achieve whatever you wish to achieve. Being accountable to self simply means that you are ready to take responsibility for however your life turns out, not blaming any external factor for whatever happens to you. By being accountable to self, you are saying, no longer will life just happen to you. You are

Book excerpt: God made sex by Abe Akintunde

Image
Some months ago, I read a powerful book, ' God made Sex' written by  Abe Akintunde, a beloved brother in Christ. The book is such an eye opening revelational book about God's idea for sex.  Today, I will be sharing with you, a portion of the book. To get the full experience of this powerful book, you can click on this link . What should be the attitude of young people to sex? A lot of changes takes place in the body of a young person at puberty, and very significant among these changes are the raging hormones. There is always a constant tussle between following the direction of these raging hormones and pleasing God, even though they have attended symposiums, conferences, youth camp meetings and have learnt sexual purity and all those important basics. The silent question  in  their  minds  now  is "How  do  I  manage  these feelings  I  experience  from time to time?" The things I will be sharing now are not commandments but if taken importantly, it will help you

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
