Peace Beyond Human Understanding

Peace Beyond Human Understanding, Quirks and Pearls, Ndukwe Odinakachukwu

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

ViewPoint: Youths and Religion

ViewPoint: Honesty and White Lies

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

Welcome y’all to 2018. For some reasons, I have a good feeling about this new year. I know, that’s how I’ve been having good feelings about previous years but this year is going to be filled with so much growth, I just know it.
First of, I want to apologize for the MIA. I can come up with excuses but I’ll spare y’all all that. This year, I plan to be more organized. Easier said than done right? Anyway, Continue reading

Waiting On God

Don't pack up your camera until you've left the location. (1)

“I’m suffering”

“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

Common 50 Naira

Ndukwe Odinachukwu, QuirksandPearls, common 50 naira

“Common 50 naira”

“Is it not common 15 naira pen?”

“Just to go to market you cannot go”

“Just because I borrowed your jacket I won’t hear word”

“Just because of a book you are disturbing my life”

I’m sure all these must sound familiar. People say these things because they feel it is “just this or that” or it is “common”. Continue reading

Is it right for a man to hit a woman?

Is it right for a man to hit a woman or a guy to hit a girl?

Yesterday when I came back from work, just right after I had settled in, my brother brought up this question, is it right to hit a woman? Of course my mom, my sister and I answered that it wasn’t right to hit a girl. He then asked what if the lady provokes the man or probably slaps the man, wouldn’t it be justified?

We all argued (everyone in the house) and it was fun and enlightening. At the end of it all, I learned some things and also thought out things too from the discussion and I’d like to share them Continue reading
