My First Trip Back to Africa

My first traditional Yoruba wedding...Well, the first I remember

My first traditional Yoruba wedding…Well, the first I remember

I recently completed a 12 day trip to Nigeria, after a 15 year ‘hiatus’ from being in the country. I am originally from Nigeria, but I have never been back since I left the country as a child. As you can imagine, a lot has changed! But that’s not the reason why I write. I write to show just how much God totally exceeded my expectations around this trip Continue reading

The Proposal

“Now, why would we want to do that?” That was my client lead’s response when I proposed an idea God put in my heart as a means to alleviate a stubborn problem in his organization.

When I started the role in March, I encountered issues the business faces on a daily basis that slowed down my work tremendously. In fact, there were some days where I didn’t move forward one bit.

Spontaneous

God, when I think about it, the way you are just doesn’t make sense. Nothing is common about what you do. I sit in the airplane and look out my window.

I Am Your Bride

I am your bride. I am the one you would give anything to be with – including your life. I am the one you picked up from the dirt and cleansed. I am your bride. I am the one you waited patiently for, even when I didn’t notice you. You gave me your best gifts. I failed to accept them. You held out your arms to me. I didn’t run in to them. You got down on one knee, held out your ring to me. My eyes were elsewhere. You waited patiently for me, even though it pained you. I am your bride.  Continue reading
