As humans, we are fantastic at picking from a wide range of excuses to limit our capabilities. This is in all areas of our lives, from going to the gym to studying for an exam. We even make up excuses to not reach out and be nice to those who are in need. People use… Continue reading Excuse Givers
It’s a new month! 4 months have gone by in 2019. You might have started this year with so much positivity and perhaps you’re beginning to slack because things aren’t going as you imagined, BUT God is always faithful.
This post is just to encourage you not to lose momentum and to persevere. Praise and worship Him even when it doesn’t make sense. Thank God that you are alive. The fact that you are alive, regardless of everything you’ve been through, means God is faithful! Where there is life, there is hope.
God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord – 1 Cor. 1:9 NKJV
This is a faithful saying: For if we died with Him, We shall also live with Him. If we endure, We shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us…

It’s not about quantity it’s about the quality. I’m learning this more and more as life gets busier and busier. I was beating myself up recently because I felt like life was getting so busy that it was swarming my time with God. I was finding myself juggling life, work and God and it was […]… Continue reading Juggling Life and God (The Struggle) — Susan Deborahs
There is a fine line between simply empathising with another person’s state and fully rooting your own emotional identity in their experience. So how do you deal with the overwhelming emotions projected by others around you? How do you ensure that you do not root your emotional identity in the emotions of another person? via Are… Continue reading Are these emotions mine?
Kanayo wrote down all my thoughts in this post!!! This is a very solid post and I encourage everyone to read it.
I take retreats from people and social media twice a year. Just had one and wow I would say it was very much needed. We get so busy planning the next big accomplishment that we don’t stop to enjoy all that’s been accomplished and just do nothing. In the process, hear clearly from God and gain uncommon wisdom to plan for our next levels.
I felt incredibly tired and worn out last week and despite all efforts to ‘rest’, I still felt exhausted. It reached a point where I had to ask God to ‘give me strength’ and in providing His strength, He also renewed my understanding of REST.
Rest is not supposed to be this thing that you collapse into after an exhausting day or season. Rest is supposed to be your starting point. We should start from a place of rest.
There is so much comfort in knowing that our Lord and Saviour Jesus, walked and didn’t run. He lived an unhurried life, yet His purpose and mission were unquestionably fulfilled. Take home message: Busy does not equal to purpose.
Another renewed perspective that I received about ‘rest’ during my quiet time, is that I have permission to do nothing. I have permission to say ‘no’. I have permission to be strategic…

One of the keys to living a meaningful life is embodying a heart of service. However, in a world so fixated on "I" and not "Us", the word service gradually looses its relevance. Our daily life is infused with messages such as "treat yourself", "live large" - messages that slowly seep into our subconscious and… Continue reading LAML SPOTLIGHT: EFE OGOLO
