Rachel was grumpy and extremely irritable. In fact, she had been irritable and easily ‘offendable’ (if that’s a word) for the last 2 weeks. She just couldn’t shake off the bad mood. This morning, she thought maybe it was because she hadn’t had her usual cup of coffee, maybe she just needed a pick-me-up. She’d
Text: 3 John 2 Is there any difference between Wealth and Prosperity? If so, which is better? Which one of these has God called us to? (Genesis 39:2, Philippians 4:19, Proverbs 10:22, 2 Corinthians 9:8, Ecclesiastes 5:19, Romans 8:32, Deuteronomy 8:18). Wealth is the state of having an abundance of valuable material possessions or money
A few of us must have heard this saying “Na borrow borrow make am rich“. Ever since we were little, our parents have frowned against borrowing, be it a pencil or a book, they have always taught us that contentment is key and to make do with what we are given or what we have.
But I warned you, I told you nothing good ever comes out of being the side chic. It’s only cool on the tabloids but not in reality. Look at you now, the talk of the town. You can’t even show your face anymore at all the choicest bars in GRA Ikeja. Your colleagues look at
Text: John 8:31-36, Deuteronomy 8:18 Why do we have the poor in our society and the church? Is it ok and Godly to be poor? Why is our faith not able to impact our finances? Do you need money or abundant wealth? Are you considered poor or rich, where do you think you stand on
Let’s put our money where our mouths are and talk about finance. It’s such a fancy word isn’t it, “finance”? We spend the first two decades of our lives learning about allowances, and piggy banks, ‘allawee‘ and ‘magas‘ paying up, but no one ever sits down to help us understand finance. That is, until now.
Susan is more than your average babe, she is a chicpreneur making big-time money moves. With a successful fashion boutique and an upcoming food service brand, she’s ticking all the right boxes. But is she playing to win? We’re at the start of Q4 2018 and Susan, as usual, is reviewing the books with her
Cultism in Nigeria now has a great competitor, religion. These religious organisations do a lot of good, but like anything consistent of men, they also perpetuate a lot of evil. Ensure that no religious establishment is leading you into folly in the name of faith. The Bible says that we should rightfully balance the word
Zizi and her friends where having their usual Thursday girl’s night out and as girls, family was the topic of the day. They talked about their men and their children. About school and play. They talked about everything then about faith. Then Zizi asked a question that had been disturbing her for a while now…
TEXT: 1 Timothy 6:12, Deuteronomy 2:24-25, 1 John 5:4 What do you say faith is? It surely means different things to different people. In this case we see faith as believing what God’s word says concerning anything and acting in line with the word. Faith is the response of the human spirit to the word
Doesn’t it feel like in the moment you need them the most, that’s when your friends desert you? Having the weight of the world on your shoulder, certain that only bad things wait around the corner for you, and they sleep on your troubles. The very same friends that once called on you when they
It’s Wednesday at 4pm and Babz hadn’t called her. She was fuming, “It’s like this man isn’t ready for me at all”. Because you see, it wasn’t just any ordinary Wednesday, it was their 2nd wedding anniversary. As her mobile phone stayed silent and she rounded up from work, Tumi’s emotional temperature increased with every
Continuing from our last episode of #XLiving, we talk about ways to grow our faith. Believing and confessing the Word. Abraham believed against hope (Romans 4:18-22); Abraham kept hearing and kept believing even when it seems it wasn’t working. Hebrew 11:8-12; 17-19 He left for a place not really specified by God, courageously circumcised himself
In this time and country we live in, it doesn’t help that people don’t understand depression or even believe it exists. On social media you see news that a certain popular individual committed or attempted suicide. The comments on such grievous story will literally leave you sad. Insults and abuses are rained on the hapless

Every now and then, our faith is put to test. How we choose to handle it tells on our character and our ‘Christ-like’ belief. There are so many theories on how women behave. None however has been able to tell how she can be managed or is there? #WomanWednesday brings us Tola’s story. Tola was
