THE NEW ME (#thenewme)

​You do not understand me,

You write me off the 1st second you see me,

The moment I speak, it seems my doom is near, 

You feel like the things my hands touch always turn to dust,

In your own opinion,  my passion is wasted, my purpose remains hidden and

my focus is misplaced, 

It seems that my efforts are not significant

and my plans have no substance, 

You tink that I am nobody and I know nobody,


This is where u got it wrong.

I have a past, but this is the day…. Now is the day, 

There was a day i drank milk and thought as a child,  but now,  these teeth r strong and can chew tough flesh. 

It is true that i made mistakes

It is true that i have no hope 

It is true that my passion and focus were all in the wrong direction. 

It is true that every effort that comes from me is nothing 

Surely…. i know a man

I know the man Jesus…. the son of the father
The redeemer of my soul, so now i have no shame,  i dwell not on my past but i push unto what lays ahead().
The saviour of my being, all shame is taken away, doom is removed like a veil off of my eyes. 
The master of my life,my purpose is found in him nd my passion and focus is clear. 
I know the son of God,  sitting at the right hand of the father,  making intercessions for me, so that i can be renewed each day. 
So if you think that this is the best of me,  you are mistaken,  GOD’S NOT DONE WITH ME YET.
Hallelujah…. I am a new man today,  I will be a better ME tomorrow. 
yours trully

Have you ever heard news that made you think so deeply about the meaning of life?       I lost someone today and I just sat there thinking, what is life? I could feel what Solomon felt when he said, “All is vanity”, truly, we come from dust and when this breath goes away, the dust that made us feel so secure, this flesh that seemed to be the most important thing in life fails and betrays us to the cold hands of sickness and death. 

      So today, once again, I bring to you the reality of a life beyond, truly, this life, the earth, the riches, all material things will pass away and ur spirit will stand alone before supremacy to receive judgment for the things that you have done on the earth, everything you ever did, every intent behind your actions, EVERY WORK WILL PASS THROUGH FIRE. And I ask you today, when the fire goes through, what will remain of you, what have you done, what can ur spirit account for. 

        I watched a movie sometime back, “gods of Egypt”, and I learnt something from it. In the movie; when a person died, he had to bring something (something precious like gold) to be allowed into the after-life. It was very funny, but I learnt that the principle of going before a greater being, is that you cannot appear empty handed, our Lord God will obviously not demand gold of us, but he demands that when your works are tested by fire, they will stand as pure gold.  

​  So dear friends and readers, It’s time to go back and think about where you belong, who owns your life, what your spirit account for, will your works stand the test? 

   I hope you give this a thought.

God bless you

One of the most Important question in the life of anyone is, “what do you think of yourself”? The subject of how you view yourself, what you think you are, what your future looks like to you remains paramount to every single individual.    I was speaking with an academic mentor and he said to me, The day you become the most important person to you is the day you start living, at first it sounded a bit selfish to me, but as I kept pondering on it, I realized if I don’t know myself, if I can’t love myself, if I can’t believe in myself, if I cannot see myself through the eyes of God, then I am nothing, then I can achieve nothing, then I cannot even show love or compassion to people around. 

​   I am presently reading a book (Managing your emotions by Joyce Meyer) which I personally recommend to everyone. She said, “The reason we have tremendous fear of who people think of us is because we have a poor self-image….. We will feel less valuable unless we are secure in who we are in Christ” and I remembered how less valuable I felt I was to people around me; my friends and family thought I was awesome, talented and sweet but to me I wasn’t getting the attention I wanted, I suffocated everyone until I realized that until you feel good about you, people can never give you enough attention even when they do all you want. 

​   So dear readers, my word today is that you love Christ first, find out who you are in Him, believe in that person He says you are and think biggest through the mind of Christ …..

God bless you



The season of celebration, It’s the celebration of life, love and salvation. 

It’s d season in which eternity was confirmed. 

The reminder of unconditional love. 

The monument of ultimate sacrifice. 

It’s d season of giving, helping, smiling. 

It’s the time to worship and be glad. 

It’s the time to count your blessings and when you think you’re done, start counting all over again. 

It’s the time to see family, feel the companionship, share fellowship and warmth. 

It’s the time to sing testimonies over and over again. 

It’s the time to sit and smile aimlessly, because you know God has been too amazing. 

​Go out, out to the streets, to the orphanages, 

Show love, place a smile on someone. 

Put aside all the worries you have and for one time in the whole year, think about others, pray for others, visit others. 

         There are people out there waiting to see your smile, wanting for your heart poured to them as encouragement, hoping that you will think of them, praying that God send them their helpers. 

           But here you are, in the luxury that God has blest you with, still crying about many things, things destined to come already, things that don’t matter, things that might even destroy you. 

         Can you that the time, take advantage of the season we are and think of others……. Bless others with kindness, illuminate life, give hope and remain joyous. 



When you really know somebody, you cant hate them, or maybe its just that you cant really know them until you stop hating them. Once you understand what people really want, you cant hate them anymore. You can fear them, but you cant hate them, because you can always find the same desires in your own heart. ​

The pharisees brought an adulterous woman caught in the act to Jesus to try and trap him using mosaic law. They already hated her thus they never understood her. Jesus both knew and understood her, thus he loved her regardless. In his infinite wisdom he shared this understanding and knowledge with the pharisees saying “he who is without sin cast the first stone”. In that light the pharisees, even though they may never have acted on it, realized that they may have had similar desires to the adulterous woman. Thus in just one simple sentence, Jesus made the pharisees understand and know the adulterous woman enough to love her..thus stop hating her. And one by one, they dropped their stones and left.

My heart

​Growing up I was taught to always believe that there is good in people.

I knew to always acknowledge that even evil had some element of kindness that could bloom.

I was taught to embrace every human as a being with possibility of good.

I was told to make excuses for people as they might have meant well.

They said there’s always that little love in the heart that can grow, so never give up.

and I did just that; 

I believed, I kept the faith, I kept the heart open, I kept the excuses flowing; 

but each time I gave dem a chance, they hurt me even more that the last time.


I made excuses until I ran out of even stupid excuses and all I could say was, “they are human”

Every time I tried to love, tried not giving up; 

I gave my love,my trust as exchange and day by day, every second, I saw my big heart get nipped out little by little.

I feel like they’ve ran out of spots to stab, and I am left to reflect on the relevance of kindness in a world like this, 

I tell myself, “can’t you be anymore human yourself?” ​

But for those very few whose peck of love can be groomed because of this kindness in my heart, I will remain kind, I will still keep that mind open and believe.

Take the chance, believe in someone today.#teamkindness.

It doesn’t have to be a give-take affair#believeinsomeonetoday#

Fostering your inner child


Two awesome people, stood at my cradle with a ceaseless smile bearing my cries, noise and tantrums

    loving my kicks and laughter

    watching my crawls become steps 

    waited eagerly for my first words

    Making the best decisions for me as best as they knew.

    Marking every inch that I grew

    Watching how I grew in knowledge and power

    Every day as I matured and with every milestone I attained,

    They prayed and they’ve never stopped praying;

    praying that I make all the right decisions,

    praying that I keep only the right friends, 

    praying that I become the woman they envisioned, 

    praying the dear Lord keep my fragile heart,

    praying that the things they taught me would be enough to carry me through life. 

    To them, I would always be that little baby girl, but they knew that one day I must stand on my own,

    So they kept praying, talking and correcting me to ensure I become capable to stand. 

    I tell you the truth, the love of parents has amazed me

    All I see is the love of Jesus, its this very true love.

    I was asked to use colours to describe my parents and I choose yellow and orange;


    They brighten my life so much, they bring me such joy that I have found no where else. 

    They add colour to my life 2 4 7.

    I just wanna say.. I love you mum and dad​


       My mom told me that;I had to always be that good girl,

    I had to remain focused,

    I had to choose my friends and my company.

       My dad never stopped telling me how dangerous the wrong male company could be, He always said,”the wrong choices could wreck u baby”.

       As a teenager, everything around me seemed not to agree with my parents or the church. In my head, it was like, “maybe they just don’t get it,maybe they need to step of their old fashioned mentality, maybe it’s just the new generation” I just felt they must have been wrong somehow.

       Now I am all grown and from the depths of me outward, I feel wasted,i feel used, it feels like;

    I could have done better,if I listened,

    I could have written a better story,

    I could have made a better name,

    I could have carried a better image.

    Now I realize that;

    The church wasn’t out of fashion, it’s always been God’s fashion,

    This generation is nothing different,its just one in which I must stand for God,

    My dad’s mentality isn’t old fashioned, he’s just experienced.

       Now I have to push,push, push and push over and over, again and again; 

    but slowly and surely I am getting there.

       I pray God for grace;

    to keep pushing, 

    to never look back, 

    to never think that the goodies of Egypt are worth more than the promise land,

    to never let the pain of regret pull me down.

       So Lord as I push into this new world,i will push until I see that girl that you knew from the conception come to be.

    I love you Lord
