Often times, I hear people say they are not ready to give their lives to Christ because it means their lifestyle would change and that would be boring. That’s true, your lifestyle would definitely have to change.
When people are told to give their lives to Christ, they do that out of fear, the fear of going to hell if they don’t change their ways. Sometimes this fear makes them so much bound to obeying the laws of God with their own strength and Continue reading
Once upon a time, I was mad at God. A lot was happening at that period, I felt like all my problems were drowning me and God just stood there looking at me. He couldn’t even help me. I wasn’t asking for too much. What I asked for was a “need” and not even a “want”, yet no answer, nothing. I was so angry, I almost did not care anymore. I lost interest in reading my b Continue reading
We sometimes make the statement “I don’t care what people say about me” and the likes but is that true? I myself have said that often and even did a post on it. There’s no doubt that saying such helps and is liberating, it actually did help me. However, the truth is we care about what people say. Let’s admit it. What we actually do is we try as much as possible to not make what people think about us matter or get to us. Continue reading
Every morning on my way to work, I see how some people drive on the streets and most times I’m like, if I drive, I will just be slowing down anyhow and I might just cause an accident. Even before I reached the age of driving, I’ve always been scared of driving. It’s amazing how people could manoeuvre through tight corners Continue reading
Yesterday, I woke up with a heavy heart. I was thinking about a lot of things, including past mistakes and decisions I have to make. I just felt like running away from all that bothered me but that of course wasn’t possible. I was just carrying all these in my mind, even up until noon and sometimes I almost felt like crying (you know those times when you want to cry but you tell yourself, no, you can’t cry naw). All I could ask God was to help me, give me peace, that’s all I was saying. Continue reading
It is now obvious that most youths no longer have affinity for the things of God. They don’t feel the need to draw closer to God and some tend to even abandon the faith completely, embracing atheism or even apatheism.
If you are reading this blog for the first time, welcome. Let me tell you a little bit about ViewPoint. ViewPoint is a blog series that is featured every first Monday of the month. It brings together the opinions or “viewpoints” of people on subject matters. Basically I would ask some people their thoughts on a particular issue or matter and compile them for you all to see. The aim Continue reading
“I don’t think God has a plan for me”
“Why is my situation contrary to the dreams God has given me concerning my life?”
“I have waited for so long, yet God has not given me what I want”
I’m sure most people have wondered why their lives are not going the way it is intended to go (me too). There are 2 answers to this. One could be that Continue reading
Hello everyone, hope your week is going fine. Just the other day, I was thinking about how songs can be helpful in one way or the other. I listen to music a lot and almost every song I have listened to, has a memory or an event surrounding it. Some are good, some are not so good. In all, good music can be comforting and helpful too. Continue reading
On my last post, I spoke about a teen’s programme in my church of which I was invited to speak on depression and peer pressure. That post focused on depression (Of which you could check it out here) and now I’ll be writing on peer pressure, I hope you enjoy it 😉 .
So I was going through true life peer pressure stories online and I came across a website http://doyoudealwithpeerpressure.weebly.com It mainly deals with teen peer Continue reading

Hey guys, I know, it’s been a while. I can’t really come up with an excuse as to why it’s been that long, although I fell sick, I didn’t fall sick for the whole 3 weeks and a few days since my last post. Anyway, I have something today to share with you all.
So on Saturday the 26th, I was given the opportunity to speak to teenagers in my church. They had a 2 day programme and though I didn’t go the first day which was Friday (was at work), the one I experienced on Saturday was wonderful and I learned a lot. My favourite part of it all was questions the teenagers asked. You could tell that they needed to understand several things from sex, relationships,
