God’s Chastening

We’ve had parents who chastised us at the slightest wrong we did but today, it is not so. I think today’s parents are soft on their children because of certain laws that have been passed but God is not affected by our laws or concerns of the State, He chastises us because He loves us...

Unwavering Faith

We are called to have an unwavering faith, one that cannot be tossed to and fro. As children of God though not children, we are not to be swivelled by every sleight of men or wind of doctrine that is passed from the mouth. One way I know the church is matured is when they... Continue Reading →

The Time Of Life

At what point does life come to us? In which part of the year do we feel lively? At what time does life come to fruits so we can eat it? At what stage of pregnancy does life come into the child? In what ways can we bring life to our dead situations? In this... Continue Reading →

Gibberish Tongue

Did you know that a word sounds gibberish the first time you hear it, especially if it’s a big or long word? Did you know that words sound gibberish when you don’t understand them?
