Hello precious one, I hope you had a nice weekend? Well I did have a lovely weekend, I attended girls brigade training with some young leaders in my team on Saturday and it was lovely seeing them talk about share the goals to influence lives positively with so much passion. Then on Sunday, I had to prepare the children for Christmas Carol... Now that was fun but hardworkkkk

I have been thinking about the dangers of prayerlessness In the bible(Luke18:1),  Jesus said "men ought always to pray, and not to faint"

Jesus knows how effective  prayer is the life of Christian and that's why He recommended it several times in the bible. Time won't permit me to dig further or write much on the importance of prayer this morning but from the bible text I shared earlier(Luke 18:1), you'll notice that prayer helps a Christian stay active, spiritually alert and in tune with God. If you don't have a consistent prayer life and you are busy running around doing church activities, you'll one day faint,get tired, bored or frustrated about your religious lifestyle. 

If you don't pray, you'll become easy prey to the devil who is actively roaming the earth seeking for whom to devour. In a world where sin and lust is actively promoted, only a consistent prayer life can keep you spiritually sane, safe and connected to God . Also apart from reading the bible, through regular communication with God(prayer), we can truly understand His will for our lives.

Finally I will leave you with Barnes' commentary Notes on Luke 18:1

"To this end means to show this. Always  means at all times. That is, we must not neglect regular stated seasons of prayer; we must seize on occasions of remarkable providences as afflictions or signal blessings to seek God in prayer; we must "always" maintain a spirit of prayer, or be in a proper frame to lift up our hearts to God for his blessing, and we must not grow weary though our prayer seems not to be answered.

Not to faint - Not to grow weary or give over. The parable is designed to teach us that, though our prayers should long appear to be unanswered, we should persevere, and not grow weary in supplication to God."

This week, make efforts to pray so you don't become easy prey for the enemies. Also remember that a week without prayer will make you weak spiritually.

Have a blessed week

He Deserves Your Thanks!

It is very easy sometimes to get so overwhelmed with life's challenges to the point that we pay little or no attention to the good things going on around us. Amidst life's daily challenges, it's very important to look inward and find reasons to be happy and thankful. No matter how bad you think your situation is, there are so many things you can thank God for. Still wondering what those things are? Let me give you some good examples (1)You have life (2) You have got eyes to read this blog post (3) You are educated enough to read this as well (4) You have a roof over your head (5) You are not on the road begging for food to eat etc. Don't we humans take things like these for granted? Look around you or better still switch on your TV and see how many people are suffering daily either as a result of war or poverty. 

My dear friends, take a moment to ponder on the goodness of God in your life...If you are thoughtful, you will be so thankful! You are not better than those lying critically ill on the hospital bed or those who cannot afford to feed but God in His infinite mercies has given you all these things you take for granted and you ought to appreciate Him for them.

As the Americans celebrate thanksgiving, a vital question keeps running through my mind "What am I thankful for?". I am thankful for who I am in Christ Jesus! It's amazing that God can love a naughty girl like me and then  make me righteous despite my inconsistencies. I am thankful for my family, it has not been easy for us these past years but God has been our father, our strength and shield. I am thankful for all my loved ones, cousins and friends who have been a blessing to me in many ways. I am thankful for my RCCG, PSF and GMC family, it feels good having a  Christian family who truly care about you. I am thankful for my job and amazing team, trust me when I say working with them is like working with family. I am thankful for who I am today and what I will be tomorrow because I know He who began a good work in me is able to complete it! 

Let everything that has breath, praise The Lord ! (Psalm 150:6)

D.I.Y Christianity ! Do It Yourself!!!

"It was the work of the devil, he tempted me. Trust me I never meant to do it" . How many times have you said something closely related? I have, and I've also heard many people say stuffs like that but if we were to be honest with ourselves, we will realise that many times we lie at the devil. The devil doesnt force you to sin, he doesnt make you commit the sin either! Rather he tempts and makes sin look so good just so you can fall for it. That is why the bible says "...Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." (James 4:7). You have a responsibility to resist the devil if not he'll fulfill his 3 fold ministry in your life which is to steal, kill & destroy your future. 

Christianity is a personal thing therefore it is your responsibility to work out every inch of your salvation! Many times you ask Christians why they backslided, they tell you stuff like "My parents were not good examples" or "My church members were hypocrites" or "My Pastor was fake, he couldn't even preach the bible well" or " My youth group members didn't show me love" etc. C'mon, grow up! You can't keep blaming people for your problems or keep pointing accusing fingers at people for the sins you committed yourself . You are responsible for your actions and on judgement day God will judge you ALONE based on the work of your hands. "And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works." Revelation 20:12 

D.I.Y Christianity is the way forward dear friends!  If you keep waiting for your pastor, parents, teachers, youth leaders and friends to help you live a life pleasing unto God and to grow spiritually , you won't go as far as God wants you to. So DO IT YOURSELF,work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, get your personal relationship with God going, fight your own spiritual wars and keep serving God even when everyone around you chooses not to. Philippians 2:12 "Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling." 

Love you all with the love of God, have a blessed week and remain blessed

Which way Nigeria?

The other day I was chatting with a friend about the Boko-Haram issues in Nigeria and at the end of the conversation he said "Join the crusade, post your selfie bringbackourgirls" 

I honestly did not know what to reply next so I kept mute. I didn't see any good in me putting up a selfie to show I was anxiously waiting and praying for the girls to be found. I had been following SKY news at work  since the abduction of the girls but at some point I was getting irritated by the way celebrities were posting up pictures of themselves with cards reading '#bringBackOurGirls'.

 I kind of got a feeling that the social media campaign was not heartfelt by many...I felt some people just posted pictures of themselves because putting up selfies/pictures saying '#bringBackOurGirls' was beginning to look like the cool thing to do.

With tears in my eyes after watching our darling Michelle Obama  give a speech addressing the issue on the abducted girls, I took my pen and wrote... 

Which way Nigeria?

Which way Nigeria?

Where are we heading?
Corruption, Greed, Hate, Tribalism, Kidnaps, terrorism  and bloodshed
This is getting so unbearable
Enough is enough!
We have suffered enough for the sins of our fathers
And like a communicable disease
The young generation is getting infected
We cannot afford to continue from where they stopped
It is high time we youths got up to re-brand our nation
We can restore our lost glory
If only Nigerian youths all over the world 
Will make efforts to represent our beloved country well
It is only a matter of time and the song we sang as kids will come to pass
"...We are the leaders of tomorrow"
I know this has taken too long to happen
But this will soon become reality
Twenty years from now
Many of these "DON" will have fallen asleep
However when they kick the bucket
Will their corrupt legacy continue?

Which way Nigeria?
It is very easy to criticise corrupt leaders
But ask yourself dear Nigerian
Are you are pillar or caterpillar in Nigeria
You who cast stones at politicians
Are you without sin?
Do you uphold the rules and laws of the land
Or do you add to the country's problems 
We complain that our police officers are corrupt
But are you quick to give out a little 'change' 
Just so you can skip the hustle and have way ?
Before critising President Jonathan for not doing his job well
Dear worker, ask yourself 
Do you really give your best at work
Or do you spend your day chatting away with colleagues or not going in to work at all?
Some teachers join in mocking the 1st lady for various blunders
But dear teacher
Are you really investing your time
Giving quality education to your students
Or do you take pleasure in abusing them 
Verbally, physically, psychologically or even sexually ?
We complain that our politicians are stealing from government's treasury
But many workers will steal money, stationaries, drugs or even food 
from their offices without blinking
Even some men of God 
who should be leading by example
Will do everything to exploit their congregation

Which way Nigeria? 
Where are we heading?
The country is bad
Nigeria is corrupt we say
But the fact remains that you and I make Nigeria
What we do as individuals will collectively affect our nation
Which way Nigeria?
What is the future of our beloved country?
At present, it looks like a dead-end
But I know  Nigeria will be great again
I know righteous, honest and competent Nigerians still exist  
I know there are great men and women
Who have not compromised yet in the land
I know our change will come
And our lost glory will be restored
I know things will change
I see a new Nigeria in the hands of God
It will however take you and I
Nigerians within the country and diaspora
To serve our fatherland with love, strength and Faith
So that together we can build a nation 
Where peace and justice shall reign


Although the issue of the unconscionable act that outraged nations for days is beginning to fade, I pray they #bringBackOurGirls safely.

1st Thanksgiving Sunday in 2014 (Pictures)

The year has just started and I already have so many reasons to thank God...It was the 1st Thanksgiving Sunday of the year in RCCG yesterday and as usual, many people went all out to church in their traditional attire and dancing shoes to give the Lord some praiseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
That  feeling of going into God's presence not to ask for anything but to give Him thanks for everything is just priceless!

I thank God for life
I thank God for my nuclear & extended family
I thank God for my good friends all over the world
I thank God for my GMC and PSFamily
I thank God  for RCCG D-Revelation family and Teens group
I thank God for friends/fans/supporters of 'LadyMay'
I thank God for the '90days New Testament Challenge' Initiative.... It's only day 5 but testimonies have been WOW! I've learnt so much  from the book of Matthew these past days from quiet time & discussion with friends who took on the challenge than I have ever done since I dedicated my life to God. It's been amazing and only God deserves all the glory. ( You  join the 90 days challenge too, just click on the link to  find out more about it


By the way I can't stop singing TY Bello's GreenLand...and NO! It's not because of the green attire.
That song is just so deep...Here is the bit of the lyrics that has been ministering to me lately.

"Standing in the rain as the clouds go grey
The thunder roars and the earth sings
The season's just beginning
The sunlight it hides as the clouds make way
For the pouring of my blessings
I will not be afraid 

I see it now, I understand, I know
So I embrace it
Dance in the rain it's for my seeds to grow
For every prayer and every seed I've sown
The Lord of the harvest knows
I'm reaping back a hundred fold 

 I thought it was over
Thought you were done with me
But we're just beginning oh my life is a journey
I will walk with you
I will go where you want me to
Yes I will go 

The land is green - it's green oh oh
The land is green - it's green
Can't you see?
The harvest is ready cos He told me so
It's green and it's all mine
Isn't it so prophetic? It is my prayer that this year, for every prayer and seed you sow, you'll reap back in 100 fold in Jesus name. You'll will experience overflowing blessings in every area of your life and have more than enough reasons to thank God this year in Jesus name. Amen.

Have a blessed week
