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

There are moments where the phrase “too blessed to be stressed” couldn’t be further from the truth for me. I’m not sure where the phrase came from, however, I do agree that it is appealing to the ear and the concept sounds good.
But what do you do when the blessing from God is weighty? What do you do when His blessings are so overwhelming and you don’t feel like you have the strength to carry them? What do you do you when what God has given you appears to be a blessing on the outside to onlookers, but is secretly a burden to you mentally and physically? Are you still too blessed to be stressed? Do you feel guilty about feeling stressed when you have a blessing before you?
Stress is a physical and psychological response to various stimuli in our environment. Our psychosomatic response has three options; fight…

Where do I begin? in fact, I’ll begin with myself… (usually a good place to start.)
Can I be real with you? So I’ve been praying for God to reveal Himself to me, I’ve been yearning to experience Him like never before. I want more of Him. I don’t know about you but I’m nowhere near satisfied with where I’ve been and what I’ve seen. So I’ve been praying….
And I was thrown into a valley and I’ve been in this valley for a while now.
And I’ve been asking God why.
And I’ve been asking God to take me out of this valley.
Because I don’t like it. It’s uncomfortable and was making me miserable.
And then God revealed to me, that unfortunately, what I have been asking of Him, doesn’t happen in the mountains. What I’ve been praying to Him for doesn’t happen in my comfort zone. GROWTH

My name is Emi, and I’m 23. I’m living a meaningful life, and I know I was born to make an impact. Right now, I work as a reporting analyst for a telecommunications company, and I also run my business, Meso Eats, on the side. I love cooking!!! And that’s what my business is all about. A company that is set to change the way African food is experienced. We eliminate all the hassle of cooking and cleaning by delivering flavor-packed meals. It’s not the easiest thing balancing both with many other commitments I have, but Jesus has been the Center of it all, and He is constantly guiding me through it all and giving me strength for each new day.
Yes! Jesus! Jesus is my root. It’s been two years and two months with Abba, and we are still going strong! I wouldn’t trade it for…
