Do you remember the last time you had to wait for something you really wanted? The eagerness, the anxiety, the pacing around, the heartache, the feelings of doubt… would my time ever come? When will the doctor call my name? When will my name be on the admissions list? When will my bus arrive? When will this traffic start to move? Waiting is not easy. But there’s a way to have peace while waiting.Read more
I was speaking to a friend the other day about personal style. Some of us have consciously or unconsciously curated certain fashion pieces that define our style. It’s easy to identify us with these pieces. However, that wasn’t the issue. The issue was in the confidence to pull off your personal style amidst spectators who would always talk. Any encounter with African aunts and uncles will give you an idea of how this goes. Lol. My friend pointed out that the confidence factor stems from self-acceptance.Read more
Think-Thank Challenge 2022
It’s another amazing time to reconnect and look back on the year with our annual Think-Thank Challenge! The year 2022 for me was 100% winging it and trusting that God got me! And He did! It wasn’t an easy ride, but I can look back with deep gratitude for how it all worked out. ❤️Read more
They say the only constant in life is change. Yet, I still cringe everytime the winds of change blow my way. I saddle my seatbelt and hold on tightly to my seat because I have no idea what’s going to happen next. What if what I’m about to face is worse than what I’m leaving?Read more
In the Multitude
It’s so easy to get lost,
To see yourself moving to the back of the line,
Because you’re not as pretty, as generous, as loving, as powerful, or as holy as the rest.
All you really have is God,
And even this one thing feels so far from reach.
In the multitude,
It’s easy to feel unseen, unheard,
Like you could disappear and no one would notice,
You could be gone without a sound,
You feel abandoned and forsaken.
But what you don’t know is that He knows your name.
He calls you out from the crowd,
Like a Zacchaeus disadvantaged from the start,
Just because of his height.
Listen to His soft voice calling you out of the multitude,
An invitation to dinner,
To spend time with you,
To rest your weary head on His shoulders.
Listen to the sound of your name on His lips as he says, “Come.”
Let Me In
I know how it feels to walk in a sea of faces, and still feel unseen,
To be in a group and not belong,Read more
Closer than you know
I picked up my phone in my usual mindless fashion, scrolling through vacations I could not afford yet, and cute puppies doing their cute things. Everything represented a place or state I wasn’t in, but wanted to be in. As I scrolled with increased speed, a caption caught my eye. Yes, Instablog has a way of writing sensational captions that sometimes never relate to the story. This one was different. It was about a cryptic note left by someone who ended it all.
Isn’t it sad that it takes stories like that to stop us in our tracks?Read more
