God is good, God is kind, God is trustworthy, God is dependable.

Glory be His Holy name!

Well, this year the enemy tried to convince me not to give God the glory but my God is too good. He reminded me that his faithfulness and goodness exists outside of my feelings and current situations. It was in a conversation and a testimony being shared by my mother that I was reminded of the victory that God performed 27 years ago. It’s so easy to get caught up in what we are still trusting God for that we forget what kind of God He is. What He has done and accomplished.

For the fact that I am alive, my mother is alive, I am grateful to God. You know to go into a labor room and come out is indeed a huge testimony in itself. We can never forget that the fact we are alive, that you are reading this and can comprehend what you a reading is a miracle in itself. Our God is still in the business of performing miracles. Women are still going to that same labor room and coming out healthy and with their babies in their arms. God watches over us and he does not sleep neither does he slumber. If you know any woman that has gone through labor, you better do a little praise dance on their behalf and send a quick word of thanks to God. It is a huge miracle!

I don’t know about you but this little girl that God delivered in that labor room 27 years ago will boldly and loudly shout his praises! God redeemed me, he continually redeems me. He saves me! He saves my soul daily out of the pit of darkness. He sanctifies me and ensures I am daily reminded of His love for me. He gives my life purpose and He has promised me that He will bring my life to an expected end in Him. He gives my life meaning. Not only did He save my life but He gave my life meaning by then bringing me into his family of believers. He called me a King and Priest, He called me beloved. I mean, who am I, and who is my family what you have made this our testimony?

God I am grateful.

Oh God, My Help Since Ages Past

Looking back over my childhood years, the hand of God has always been over my life. Through the primary school years in Nigeria, to the remaining primary school years in London, then to my secondary school years and teenage years spent in London. To my young adults years in Edmonton, Alberta. This God has been too kind to me. Grace has been multiplied unto me in areas I never imagined. He has been my Ebenezer, my help since ages past. Showing up for me even when I did not or would not acknowledge His presence and His hand in my life and over my life. God has always been so patient, so kind and so loving with me.

Thank you Jesus.

I prayed for community and God gave it to me in abundance. True, genuine, patient, loving friendships that have blossomed into a community and family.

Through situations where I have felt hopeless God has shown up and met me in that pit of despair and poured out his love on me.

When I have disappointed and hurt by people, in the same manner God used people to heal those wounds and reminded me that He is my everlasting love and the true lover of my soul.

I have lacked nothing. God has been my JIREH.
He remains my all in all.

I want to spend a day not thinking about what I don’t have yet but rather focus on thanking God for what He has done for me and what He continues to do.

Where would I be without His hand over my life, guiding and directing me?

What would have become of my life? When my own strength failed me miserably, yet He was still gentle and loving and kind with me, reminding me that He is the strength of my life.

I may see things clearly now but I can trust and receive the peace that comes from entrusting my life fully into his hands.

See guys, it’s not that it’s so easy for me to write this in fact I started this post with something else in mind. But this is what happens when you submit yourselves to the Holy Spirit. He is in control of my fingers as I type and in control of my mind as I think. He causes me to think deeply and see His goodness throughout my life. If you are still in the fence and trying to decide if you’d like to try this Christian thing, please I would recommend you try the Jesus thing first! Jesus is the every essence of our faith as Christians. It’s not just a religion and following decrees, it’s about a relationship that is laced in grace. It’s about fellowship with the Holy Spirit. It’s about submitting your life and decisions to his leading. It’s not that life will be easy, words will flow easily or that your heart will always flutter. But it’s an immovable trust in the fact that He has our best interest at heart. He wants us to prosper even as our soul prospers. It’s a freedom to know that you’re not alone even if you feel like you are alone. When nobody else gets it, Jesus always gets it. He’s not an inanimate being that we pray to. He is present and with us. He sees us and He hears us, as El Roi, He is ALWAYS present.

If you are reading this and would like to take part in the Word of Our Testimony Project by sharing your experience and story please complete the form.

The bible says we overcame by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our Testimony. The blood has already been confirmed but we must daily confess the word of our Testimony. It is a great reminder for the writer to sit back, think and meditate on God’s goodness and a great inspiration to the reader to be reminded that our God is STILL in the business of performing wonders and miracles.

I pray that we all learn to enjoy and seek His presence all the days of our life. To my Lord and Master, I am eternally grateful for Year 27, wherever the journey leads I trust you, I love you. Please continue to strengthen my faith in you and help my unbelief in the ways I’m falling short. You are the source of my life, my joy, my glory and the lifter of my head.

The LORD will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O LORD, endures forever; Do not forsake the works of Your hands. PSALM 138:8 (NKJV)

The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O LORD, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands. PSALM 138:8 (ESV)

The LORD will work out his plans for my life— for your faithful love, O LORD, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for you made me. PSALM 138:8 (NLT)

LORD, Your name alone be magnified and glorified,

yours lovingly, totally, completely and fully

One generation commends your works to the next.

One of my favorite things to do is to honor and celebrate my parents and my family. It’s part of my gratitude habits. I am grateful because I know and see how far God has brought myself and my family. It is surely the grace and favor of God that sustained and kept us. My parents celebrated their wedding anniversary this past week and the verse that kept playing in my mind was PSALM 145:4

 "One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts."

I see it, I know it and therefore I must celebrate it.


In reading the story of the Israelites I am reminded of how key it is think and ponder on God’s faithfulness and remind future generations of God’s goodness. In Deuteronomy, Moses nears the end of his life and he reminds the Israelites of their journey so far to provide them clarity on how far God has brought them and to remind them of God’s goodness and faithfulness.

How can you commend the next generation if you don’t know about the past generation? How will you be able to move forward with knowledge from the past without giving thanks because we are no longer in the past? Even if your family history was terrible, thank God that you are no longer in that situation. And if you feel like you still are, we thank God that we are not in a far worse situation.

We thank God that we are no longer where we used to be even if we are not yet where we would desire.

When we submit our desires you to the Lord, he grants us the desires of our hearts by aligning us with His divine plans.

The story of the children of Israel in the Old Testament was a real eye opener. There were so many instances they had to remind themselves of God’s goodness. In fact, the whole book of Deuteronomy is basically Moses narrating and documenting their journey out of Egypt and in the wilderness.

"Remember the days of long ago; think about the generations past. 
Ask your father, and he will inform you. 
Inquire of your elders, and they will tell you." 
Deuteronomy 32:7 
Personal Testimony

I was having a casual phone conversation with my mum and she was sharing her story with me, a testimony that opened my eyes and really spoke to my own current situation! I was shocked because it wasn’t like I hadn’t heard her give this testimony before but never got into the details of it. How many of us miss out on life changing and perspective shifting stories like this because we refuse to sit and engage our loved ones, especially our parents?

Even the Bible speaks about the fact that in sharing our stories with each other there is wisdom and safety in it.

We know that there is nothing new under the sun, therefore there is no challenge we will experience or currently are experiencing that somebody else out there hasn’t gone through before (Ecclesiastes 1:9). We just pray God that open our eyes to see and direct us to the right people that can counsel us accordingly. In the same way, Hebrews 12:1 states;

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. 
And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us."

Generations after are still reading the stories in the Bible and gleaning wisdom and lessons from it. Isn’t our God just so wonderful!

To think that someday I will be sharing my stories, struggles, triumphs and testimonies with my children and the next generation in my family. With this knowledge, I am learning to trust God to steward my seasons well. Ultimately, we will have to give an account to God and we cannot change or twist the narrative in our favor because the 24 hour CCTV that is the Holy Spirit that resides in us and with us, is making recordings of ALL our actions and even more than that of our THOUGHTS.

May God help us to align our actions, words and thoughts and our heart to His will and His word.

YAH – Dunsin Oyekan

“…Generations, after generations
Keep praising You, yet no word sums You up
Then I asked the Lord, “What name fits You?”
And He said, “Yah

Yah, the Hallowed One
Yah, the Holy One
Yahweh, the King of Zion…”

Revive Our Hearts

For King and Country is one of the most popular modern Christian contemporary bands. Do you ever wonder where their name comes from? According to the duo:

“For King and Country” was the battle cry of English soldiers willing to lay down their lives for their king and their country. And now it has become our mission, to lay down our lives for our King and our country

What are we willing to do ‘For The Kingdom’?

In 2020 the blog addressed the idea of revival and a revolution related to pursuing purpose. Recently in media we have heard of several occurrences of revivals such as the Asbury Revival taking place in Kentucky, US. It seems like a revival is taking place right now in our day and time. The Nigerian gospel minister Dunsin Oyekan has also initiated a revival known as ‘The Outpouring’ all around the world, so far he has had services in various cities in Nigeria as well as London, UK and even more loading. Similarly, Nathaniel Bassey has been conducting The Hallelujah Challenge since 2017 and it has only grown more with several testimonies and people coming to encounter the love and power of Jesus Christ.

We have heard of the previous revivals but now, we have one taking place in our generation. The truth though is that revival is an everyday occurrence if we allow it to be.

Luke 17:20-21

One day the Pharisees asked Jesus, “When will the Kingdom of God come?” Jesus replied, “The Kingdom of God can’t be detected by visible signs. 21 You won’t be able to say, ‘Here it is!’ or ‘It’s over there!’ For the Kingdom of God is already among you."

But that raises a question.

What is a Revival?

It usually refers to the refreshing of our souls and a reviving of our soul’s mission as we are reinvigorated and reminded of the reason why we are present in the areas we are. As we look forward to celebrating Easter (the greatest display of God’s love for humanity), revival can mean a reminder of the work of salvation and coming back to the heart of Jesus Christ.

We might have read this Old Testament verse in Joel 2:28 – 30, where God promises restoration and to pour out His Spirit upon His people.

"“And afterward,
    I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
    your old men will dream dreams,
    your young men will see visions.
29 Even on my servants, both men and women,
    I will pour out my Spirit in those days.
30 I will show wonders in the heavens
    and on the earth,
    blood and fire and billows of smoke."

This is a promise of God to His people. We are God’s people. So perhaps this is a time of restoration, to come back to the heart of the Father and to receive rest and revival for our souls.

So, why do we need a Revival?


The truth is that nothing else really matters except that which we do for the Kingdom.

Let His Kingdom come. May His will be done.

Excerpt from the lord’s prayer
A Kingdom Perspective

An analogy to orient our minds is to consider that we have a King that left his citizens in charge and in doing that a coup has taken place where the citizens did all sorts and caused major damages to the country. Another ruler came that was more abrasive to the citizens and arrested them requesting for the damages to be resolved. But the King sent his son to pay the debt and cover all offences of the country’s citizens. So, they are able to technically live in the country but aren’t subject under the authority of this other ruler. The ruler just rules the land but the citizens are not subject to his authority.

Jesus Christ gave himself up as a ransom for our sake. In John 17:13-19, Jesus in prayer to God the Father (aka the King) informs us that we are in this world but not of this world (verse 16). Let His sacrifice not go in vain over us. Rather, it is our duty to work to recruit other citizens that are yet to understand this to join our army of Christian soldiers.

And in doing this we are aware of 2 Timothy 2:4

"Soldiers don't get tied up in the affairs of civilian life, for then they cannot please the officer who enlisted them."

We do not entangle ourselves in the civilian lifestyle, rather we train ourselves for what is ahead (#ForTheKingdom).

One of my favorite verses to this day is Matthew 6:33

"Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these other things will be added to you."

God’s kingdom is our first and foremost pursuit. In reviving ourselves, we are reminding our soul and bringing others to the awakening that ‘Christ is King‘. Those involved in the Asbury revival are students with responsibilities. You might say surely it’s not compared to having a family, people depending on you or a job that requires your full attention. Yet, there will always be something calling our attention away. The truth is what do we choose to give our attention to.

Ezekiel the prophet spoke of a vision in Ezekiel 37:1-6

"The hand of the Lord was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”
I said, “Sovereign Lord, you alone know.”
Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.”

We call those things that be not as if they are. There is power in the Word of God. When we read it and meditate on it. We can understand the authority behind it and speak these things into our lives and situations.

To engage in spiritual discipline is not a theoretical practice but is practical and should be practicalized so that we can engage in the battle of life.

Do not be fooled we are in a struggle daily over light and darkness. Good over evil. We have to ensure we equip ourselves correctly, so our souls do not become lackluster and lose the essence and hope we hold unto. That hope is Jesus Christ.

May God help us.

Recommendations for Pursuit

To seek means to search out, to desire something and attempt to obtain that thing.

Jesus used parables used in New Testament teachings and particularly in Matthew to showcase the treasure that is the Kingdom of God. It’s not made accessible to everybody, just those that truly seek after it and pursue understanding of the word of God. Are we among them? True pursuit requires brokenness to some extent and desperation. How desperate are we for Jesus? Does our soul totally and completely yearn for Him like a dry and parched land? We cannot come to Him in a lax manner or thinking about the refreshing or encounters we have had in the past.

Behold, He is doing a new thing, therefore we must forget the things that have happened in the past and look with eager anticipation for the encounter to come. We must prepare our hearts and have a contrite spirit to fully receive His Spirit. As he pours, are we ready and primed to be poured into?

It’s in the Small Things

We do not have to wait to do something grand to count it as revival. In fact just loving on those in our sphere of influence with the right intent of heart is powerful enough. How are we stewarding our relationships and contributing positively to our community?

Do you see someone struggling in an area, are you offering them your support, expertise and advice? Do we turn a blind eye to the struggle of our brother and sister and feign ignorance because we are too wrapped up in our own struggles? I know sometimes, we all have things we worry about but by leaning on God, he offers supernatural strength to help us in our times of need such that we will be shocked at how we can support others going through a similar or totally different situation.

We cannot operate like people of this world, they do not have access to the same strength and wisdom of God that we have. It’s not boasting or being prideful. Rather, it is a divine understanding of our identity in Christ. Imagine you had a child that never acknowledged or celebrated you as their parent?

It is our duty to recognise the supremacy and majesty of our God. To keep beholding Him in the beauty of His holiness and to strive to display the excellencies He has bestowed upon us.

For the Kingdom.

In all our pursuit of the good things of this world, we must neglect to keep Christ at the center and His kingdom should be our top most priority.

1 Corinthians 4:20 says

"For the Kingdom of God is not just a lot of talk; it is living by God's power."

May the power of God be made evident in our lives and in our situations. May we not be people that deny the power of God at work in our lives to truly transform us.

Are you confused about a decision or overwhelmed with which direction to go?

When we seek God’s kingdom first, He provides us with divine vision and direction.

Here are a few recommendations of online media to help revive our hearts:

Motion pictures like: ‘The Train‘, ‘Enoch‘ by Mount Zion Films, The Chosen tv series

Podcasts like: TED (Tolu, Ella and Dara), The Table with AO (Anthony O’Neal), Whoa! That’s Good podcast, to my sisters & the Bible, Babes and Banter podcast.

YouTube channels like Beleaf in Fatherhood, The Winlos, Minister GUC and Nene, Maze Lee & family and so much more.

Musings with Mo hopes to be fulfill a mandate to gain the airwaves and media for the propagation of the Gospel. The goal is to build a platform where people can grow and be edified in their walk with Christ as well as encouraged to be the best version of themselves in their various spheres of influence.

Something to ponder, What does Matthew 16:28 mean?

"And I tell you the truth, some standing here right now will not die before they see the Son of Man coming in his Kingdom."

Character over Comfort

What experiences in life helped you grow the most?

God is more interested in refining our character than in granting us comfort. This does not mean God is wicked and does not want to comfort us. But, God wants us to be transformed by the renewal of our minds. You can be comfortable in sin and living a life that that does not glorify God.

That is not a life that God cosigns. Only God can bring us true comfort. The type of comfort that isn’t based on earthly or temporary things.

2 Corinthians 1: 3-12: God of All Comfort

3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. 4 He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. 

5 For the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ. 6 Even when we are weighed down with troubles, it is for your comfort and salvation! For when we ourselves are comforted, we will certainly comfort you. Then you can patiently endure the same things we suffer. 7 We are confident that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in the comfort God gives us.

8 We think you ought to know, dear brothers and sisters, about the trouble we went through in the province of Asia. We were crushed and overwhelmed beyond our ability to endure, and we thought we would never live through it. 9 In fact, we expected to die. But as a result, we stopped relying on ourselves and learned to rely only on God, who raises the dead. 

10 And he did rescue us from mortal danger, and he will rescue us again. We have placed our confidence in him, and he will continue to rescue us. 11 And you are helping us by praying for us. Then many people will give thanks because God has graciously answered so many prayers for our safety.

12 We can say with confidence and a clear conscience that we have lived with a God-given holiness and sincerity in all our dealings. We have depended on God’s grace, not on our own human wisdom. That is how we have conducted ourselves before the world, and especially toward you. 

Therefore, we should be of good cheer when we go through persecutions and trials because we know that will produce good character in us.

These are the experiences that help us grow the most.

To answer the question that prompted this blog, what helps us grow the most is usually what stretches and challenges us. Nothing ever grows in the comfort zone.

So take heart my dears, and trust that situations that seem uncomfortable right now is an opportunity for the strength, wisdom and goodness of God to be manifested in our lives and situations.

Lastly, to leave us with some hope is Apostle Paul in the book of Romans

Romans 5:3-6 – God shows up at the right time

3 We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. 4 And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. 5 And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.

6 When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. 

Even when we feel overwhelmed, hopeless or helpless God is never far away from us. He will turn ALL things together for our good, as long as we yield to His purpose for our lives.

Be of good cheer my dears, it will end in praise!

Happy New Month!

Worship His Majesty

Our God is Holy, worthy and He alone is worthy of our Praise and Worship.

That’s it. That’s the whole blog!

But honestly, we can never stop reminding ourselves of the majesty of our God. When we behold Him and look intently upon Him then our insecurities, anxieties about tomorrow (sometimes even today) fades away into oblivion.

We can enter His rest and fully accept the grace He has made available to us through Jesus Christ.

There is nothing impossible for God to do. Read that again. There is absolutely NOTHING impossible for God to do. Sometimes what we lack is faith.

Photo by Nicholas Githiri on Pexels.com
“You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible - Matthew 17: 20 NLT

Moreover, if we are aware of this but we think but I am just a mere mortal with so many shortcomings and weaknesses why would God want to do anything for me or give me anything. It’s because God loves us. Read that again. God loves you. God is in love with you. (Romans 8:35-39, NLT) Nothing can separate us from the love of God found in Christ Jesus).

Apostle Paul is so secure in this understanding that He boldly states in Philippians 4:13

"For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength."

So anytime we feel undeserving, we must understand that it is not our power our might or our actions that justifies us but we are saved, redeemed and ransomed (Romans 8:29-30, NKJV) through faith in Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 2:4-10, NLT)

Let’s be wary of our thoughts and feeling that might make us think we need to sustain our relationship with God in our own power. Let’s be humble in how we esteem ourselves. Recently played back the verse that speaks on humbly assessing ourselves

"Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning. Don't think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us." - Romans 12:3 NLT

It showed me that in this race we are all running it with the grace of God. Do NOT ever place anybody on a pedestal, and be wary of people that might try and do that. We rely on the grace of God to sustain us and renew us daily by renewing our minds and refreshing our souls. Not only should we read or say this but we must truly believe this and live our lives with this understanding.

When we realize just how weak and unable we are, we can better appreciate the greatness of our awesome God.

Yes, we are spirit beings with a soul that reside in a body. Therefore, we must understand that we live our lives based on our Spirit. The things we see that manifest in the physical is as a result of what has already occured in the Spirit. Let’s avoid distractions and rather we must place our focus on Jesus Christ the author and finisher of our faith. Only He can sustain us and truly satisfy our souls.

This is why we must worship His majesty.

The Lord is glorious and majestic in all His ways. How great are the works of His hands. Let us reason together for a minute and consider just how amazing our heavenly Father is. Have you ever gone through a period of time that you thought you would never make it out of? Have you ever felt lost, disappointed and just jaded with life? Then think to moments when God brings sweet relief. When He reminds us of His goodness through His words, or through the testimony of others. This is just relational revelations of our God. Now, consider the practical revelations seen in the miracle of waking up everyday. The fact that we have oxygen that we breathe into our lungs and it goes around our body and in the same mechanism, carbon dioxide leaves our lungs and is expired out into the atmosphere. The balance of gases are just right on Earth to sustain our human lives and keep us alive.

We have access to technology and technological advances that helps make our lives easier each day by allowing us to connect with people all around the world at the click or swipe of a button. We have reasoning faculties to be able to think, deduce and induce things based on evidence around us. That is the majesty of our King. Oh, that men would praise the Lord and think of His wonderful works! Oh, that men would praise the Lord and think of His wonderful works!

May we never lose our wonder of His majesty.

Have a great week ahead and may we be intentional in spending time just lavishing love upon our Maker.

Obedience – God’s Love Language

We are all familiar with the bible verse:

"Obedience is better than sacrifice and submission is better than offering the fat of rams." (1 Samuel 15:22, NLT).

This means that God is more invested in our ability to hear and obey Him first and foremost than the service we give to Him. Controversial, I know! Those two ideas are not mutually exclusive. The truth is that part of our obedience to God is that we serve Him (James 2:24, NLT). But, God wants us to follow His leading for us specifically above all else (1 John 5:2-3, NLT, 1 John 2:3-5, NLT).

So, what is God speaking to us right now as individuals? What instructions is He giving us to follow?

This is how we lavish our love on our savior. The song ‘My Worship‘ by Phil Thompson says ‘And no one can worship You for me, For all the things You have done for me.’

It’s the same with obedience. Nobody can obey God for us or on our behalf. We have individual instructions that God has given us and we must do our best to adhere to them.

What God is instructing you to do in this season of your life may not make sense to others and you may not see anybody else around you doing that but we are held accountable to a higher power than the court of public opinion.

Let’s not be easily swayed, distracted or too captivated by the going-ons that is happening around us but we must be sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit.

A friend of mine (shout out to you Fikayo!) reminded me recently about the blog post on God’s love languages and how we can cater to the ultimate Lover of Our Soul.

It’s time to go back to our first love. To re-discover our first love and pour our affections and attention on Him. Who wouldn’t want to be courted over and over again? We speak sweet words to Him and commune with Him in prayer and use our words of affirmation to speak His refreshing words back over our own lives. We spend quality time with Him and fulfill His love languages. We shower gifts on Him by providing for His flock and those in need as He stated in His Word. We live a life of service by working to support His ministry on Earth. We are physically present by showing up to fellowship with the brethren and being His hands and feet within our community.

excerpt from ‘Back to the Basics’

You might think but God is saying anything explicitly to me right in this season! God is always speaking to us! We are just too distracted to be able to hear Him speak. Trust me if you dedicate everyday of the next week to intentionally reading the word of God, there is no way God won’t speak to you. Try it and come back at the end of the week and leave a comment on this post!

But, sometimes it does not have to be a specific instruction or regarding a specific thing. There are many instructions, ready to go for us already in the word of God.

The truth is that embedded in the midst of all the activities we partake in should be a love and devotion to God that is evident in our obedience to Him and His word.

May God help us develop the spiritual discipline to incline our ears to Him and what He might be speaking to us at every point in time.

Sacrifice of Worship

One of the ways we can live that life of obedience is by worshipping. Worship is what we do to get to the heart of the Father. We consecrate ourselves and we give God our full attention. May the Holy Spirit teach us how to worship God in Spirit and in truth and how to offer Him the true sacrifice of our worship. (part 2 loading…)

The Wait

Recently stumbled on a Netflix movie based on the bestselling novel, “God’s Waiting Room” by Yewande Zaccheaus. It’s a book that was written to encourage women waiting to birth their children and it was subsequently turned into a Nigerian Netflix produced movie in 2021.

Now I do not normally watch Netflix or even watch movies like that, I was searching for another movie when I stumbled upon this movie. My eyes were opened and my spirit was literally refreshed from watching this movie that I felt myself just smiling from ear to ear at certain parts of it.

Life Lessons from Waiting

The concept of waiting applies to so many different aspects of life and the characters in the movie display that surely in various aspects of their life such as waiting for children, a job offer, marriage and more. The different characters go through various lessons and experiences through their waiting period and some of it isn’t neatly wrapped by the end of the movie. Things do not necessarily go how they initially would have thought their story would go, or even how we as an audience would have thought, yet as an audience get to learn so many pivotal lessons from their stories.

1. The Right Community is necessary

One thing that stood out to me right of was the beauty of community while in our waiting period. Having the support of people that are in similar situations to you and that you can share your struggles with without feeling judged, or like they just don’t get it. The truth is that we are all in different forms of waiting rooms and some people can relate more with others but we must seek for a community where we can plug into and receive the support we need. May we never be found wanting in our hour of need.

Although, with committing to community also means lack of control. We cannot control somebody else’s insensitivity to our feelings and situation during our waiting period. Not everyone will get it or even be able to relate to your situation. But rather we must build ourselves up so we do not crack under the pressure that others seem to portray on us or any unnecessary pressure we put on ourselves.

2. Patience and Endurance are byproducts of Waiting

We really need true patience and endurance while in the waiting room. There was an instance where one of the characters, a female medical consultant, was getting abused by a patient’s husband. The way she was spoken to can cause anyone to respond in a harsh way. Immediately after that she had an equally tough conversation with a loved one. This is all within a short span of time. This means just because we are going through something, life still happens around us regardless of our feelings. People will still do people things and say or do things that may not take out sensitive situation into consideration.

Another character is adamant she will birth her own child even while going through psychological torture and warfare from the impact of a dream that keeps haunting her. She is resolute and determined. This is a prime example of the importance in marrying well o! Get you a man that will pray for you and cover you and you likewise do the same for him! In the end, her faith was rewarded and not because she got exactly what she wanted but she trusted God and when He gave her a response, although resistant at first she came around. Trusting that her good Father, had good intentions for her and her desire to have her own family. Also, we salute a man that stands by his woman and displays fruit of the Spirit including patience and gentleness!

It is important to surround yourself with the right people and listen to counsel.

“That we smile does not mean that there is no pain.”

3. Let Faith and Hope Anchor you in the Waiting

It is okay to feel our pain during the waiting room. Hope deferred sometimes makes the heart weary. BUT we must always clarify and define what the anchor for our soul is during our waiting. Another story sees a couple where the wife has lost her faith and is also losing her joy in the midst of waiting. She becomes defensive and doesn’t want to do anything else during her waiting. Anchor is what keeps us grounded in the middle of turbulent times and the storms life throws at us.

Our faith will be tested like never before but that is where we see the resolve of our faith and test the true foundation of our faith whether its based on the word of God or our assumptions and thoughts.

“We all need an anchor that holds.”

4. Learn to appreciate time and seasons in the Wait.

A funny lesson from one of the scenes in the movie, is that when you’re waiting do not look at the hours, but understand that time is but a journey. A journey that is different for each of us. It can be easy to count the months, days, hours and even years that we are waiting and expectant for that promise to come to pass and that thing to be fulfilled. Yet, life is meant for living. Everybody is on different timelines and what might take you longer may not take someone as much time. In the movie, a husband and wife are grieving their multiple miscarriages differently. One would think that time would have healed all wounds. Yet, they chose different way to heal. So because one spouse went a different route doesn’t mean the other spouse will take the same path and take the same time to arrive at the end destination. By the end they realize that they had the same hurt and they required patience with each other to understand each person’s perspective.

Just because you see God doing something for others does not mean there is something wrong with you.

5. Do Not Waste the Purpose of the Wait

The waiting room builds resilience, strength, it cultivates joy and purpose. There is always purpose in the waiting and sometimes in the pain of the waiting.

One thing about God is that no man can see or stop his Hand. A cascade of fortunate events, turn a waiting period that could have been sour into a life changing experience. The story of a young man looking for a job and trying all methods to find anything to do, rather than stay bitter and angry is such an inspiring narrative! On the advice from his friend, he employs his current talents and finds other ways to engage himself and also creates a safe haven for the children in his neighborhood. In doing this, an opportunity presents itself and he seizes it by making sure he is prepared with his qualifications.

Life doesn’t stop even though we are waiting for something, therefore why do we stop living life?

Closing statements

“It’s a privilege to wait on God.”

excerpt from ‘The Wait’ 2021 film

Let’s not even begin to dissect the excellent and diverse choice of actors, the sombre yet moving soundtrack, great transitions, power packed one liners (that are littered through this review) and just all round pure vibes!

Man, if ever I would ever recommend a movie as a non-Netflix watcher, this would be the one for me! It is an absolute must watch for 2023. Whatever you are hoping for, it can be encapsulated in one form or another in this beautiful and well crafted movie.

He has made everything beautiful and appropriate in its time. He has also planted eternity [a sense of divine purpose] in the human heart [a mysterious longing which nothing under the sun can satisfy, except God]—yet man cannot find out (comprehend, grasp) what God has done (His overall plan) from the beginning to the end

Ecclesiastes 3:11 (AMP)

The one thing I struggled with though was the protagonist in Dr Nara, she always seemed to be so strong and available for her group and I really wondered if she had someone to counsel her as well. It can be so easy to always be that strong pillar for others and never accept any help or needed support for yourself. Plus, the fact that her story of waiting was left in limbo was a little apprehensive. But, then I guess that is how real life works. We do not always get everything we so desire. Plus, I truly think she’s fulfilled in waiting and allowing her life serve a purpose for those in her community. We see the end shots of the movie that she still continues to provide a safe space and supportive community for her friends and their loved ones.

May we learn to find purpose in our waiting and to exercise joy and patience through it all!

If I could summarize the key points learnt from the movie it would be what is mentioned in the closing sequence:

Do not waste the wait. We are transformed from who we are to who He has called us to be.

No Season Is Wasted

Welcome to last minute blogging!

I have had this message playing on my mind for the longest time and just wanted to quickly share it before the year runs out. See friends, there is absolutely no season we encounter in Christ Jesus that is wasted. As long as we are in Jesus, nothing is wasted! He is a God that is able to redeem all things!

Psalms 107:2

“Has the Lord redeemed you Then speak out! Tell others he has redeemed you from your enemies.”

Passing By

When it seems like life is passing us by or that we aren’t quite reaching the milestones we would like that is when we learn to lean into the goodness and faithfulness of God. One thing we know for sure is that God is indeed good. We stay faithful. For better or for worse. We make the resolve to remain in the presence of God even when the desire has up and left the building. We fight our feelings and we stay by the feet of Jesus, we stay pursuing Him even when it is painful. See that pain we experience, some people will NEVER understand it. And that is okay, not everything needs to be explained or expantiated. There truly is a friend that sticks closer than a brother, and that is Jesus Christ. And he knows the right people to bring to us at the right time that will be like ointment on the open wound and scabs that life seems to put us through.

The Ultimate Goal

May we never forget the faithfulness of God, and His unwavering commitment to working in and within us to look more like Him.

Isaiah 44:21

“Pay attention, O Jacob for you are my servant, O Israel. I, the Lord made you, and I will not forget you.”

That is the ultimate goal brothers and sisters. To look, think and act more like Jesus Christ. Do not ever let anybody or anything distract you from this truth. Fight with all your might to hold onto the good news and the message of the Gospel. Jesus Christ alone is the saviour of our soul. Not what we amass on this earth or what we achieve can save our souls.

So, let us keep on fighting the good fight friends, knowing that no lesson, no season and no pain is ever wasted in the hands of our Heavenly Father.

Ecclesiastes 3:11

“God gave us the ability to think about his world, but we can never completely understand everything he does. And yet, he does everything at just the right time.

Have a blessed and prosperous 2023!

Outfits for the Seasons

To my fellow students that are back to school in person, we may have gotten too comfortable in dressing in pajamas and attending classes with a formal shirt up top and leggings at the bottom, that we don’t really know what to do anymore when it comes to in person interactions. I am here for you, with just a few suggestions on possible outfit ideas to help guide your outfit planning for back to on campus classes.

Beyond this, I believe we can all relate to seeing how sometimes our dressing can link with a mindset shift that helps us tap into our current time and season. We are told to dress how we would like to be addressed. Well this can apply to the time and season of our lives as well. Recently, we can notice the beauty of the Fall leaves and see how things are changing in our physical environment. It can reflect the changes that should be happening internally as well. In writing this piece, I was thinking about the different verses on the importance of time and seasons and thought to share.

May you be blessed and edified with the outfit ideas suggested but much more by the bible verses shared for each outfit.

Concert Night outfit:

Psalm 1:3 
 "He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers."

Sunday Brunch outfit:

Acts 14:17 
 "Yet he has not left himself without testimony: He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; he provides you with plenty of food and fills your hearts with joy.”

Day to Day outfit:

Genesis 1:14 
 "And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years,"

Pop of Colour outfit:

Galatians 6:9 
 "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."
Genesis 8:22 
 "As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.”

Supporting the Cause outfit:

Ecclesiates 3:1 
 "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:"
Daniel 2:21 
 "He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning."

How are you trusting God during this season? How are you preparing yourself for the current time and season? We start by adjusting our dressing with the hope of changing our mindset and eventually being transformed by the renewal of our minds to determine God’s good and perfect will (Romans 12:2) for us in every season of life.

Have a great rest of the year friends!

A Good & Faithful Servant

As the world prepares to finally lay HRH, Queen Elizabeth to rest, we are reminded of her life of service and sacrifice. The documentaries and playback on all major news channels looks at her story from a young girl, to young adulthood, to raising her own children and eventually becoming a grandmother and great grandmother.

Seventy Years

It is not an easy feat to rule on a throne as a human being with our faults and weaknesses. Yet, she did it with such grace. That isn’t to say there wasn’t time when she wasn’t criticized whether rightly so or not,and there were times she perhaps didn’t respond in the way the public she served would have wanted. But then you consider the fact that she had to give her life to a cause and to serving her country. Yes, she was blessed to live a luxurious life and all that. Yet, I cannot imagine how many of us would be able to live and represent our countries and ourselves in such light.

As citizens of heaven and as sons and daughters of the Most High, do you realize that we are called to an even higher calling than her?

What will be said of us when we are no longer on earth? When our stories are being discussed by others what narrative will be said about us?

Good & Faithful Servant

The only one worthy of this statement thus far has been Jesus Christ. We strive to hear God say this about us at the end of our time on earth. But are we aware of the fact that God has already sent us a standard, somebody who He has already said similar words too. He said “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” [Matthew 3:17] This reflects the statement Jesus himself uses in a parable in the New Testament to explain faithfulness,

  "Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let's celebrate together!" 
[Matthew 25:21] 

Who doesn’t want to be appreciated and celebrated? Yet, we know that God alone is good. As his children we have his goodness at work in us and through us when we allow the Holy Spirit have its way in our lives. We see the nature of faithfulness as portion of the fruit of the Spirit and it is a result of fellowship with the Holy Spirit. Many are indeed called and many people claim to be Christians but how many of us actually walk the walk and talk the talk. Trust me I am speaking to myself even as I write this out. Just as a lot of people will have opinions about the rule of Queen Elizabeth, yet a lot of people cannot walk a mile in her shoes or be able to take the pressure of what she had to endure while on the throne. Yet, we serve a God with an eternal throne. His rule and reign is everlasting. It knows no end and does not die. So we fellowship with the Holy Spirit to equip us to stay faithful in serving our God and His Kingdom.

He is a Sovereign God

We have no choice but to re-examine ourselves and our walk. Are we truly walking in the light of God’s word? Are we truly consecrating every part of our lives to Him? No man knows the day or the time. We all thought Queen Elizabeth would rule forever, even though we know that is impossible, yet we can celebrate a life well lived and a true life of service to her people. Will the same be said about us?

We serve a sovereign God. His reign is everlasting and eternal. We are indebted to Him. We are to live a life of service consecrated to worshipping Him and carrying out his good works on Earth. When we start and have the mindset and heart posture of sacrifice and obedience to the work of God, we are able to easily yield to the direction of the Holy Spirit.

We are working for an everlasting kingdom. For our God and His Kingdom.

So while everyone else mourns the legacy of this earthly queen, let us think and consider what our role will be in the eternal Kingdom and how we can be more faithful in our devotion to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

God help us all,



Mo 🙂
