MUSIC THAT SANCTIFIES – HILLSONG: LET THERE BE LIGHT

hillsong photo

I’ve had this post in my draft since forever. Lagos won’t let me do a complete post. I had to squeeze out time to write this. Which involved leaving the office by 7pm.

Lagos. The city that makes you forget you have to observe your quiet time. You get up by 4:00am and get home by 9:00pm.

But Hillsong makes things easier for me. I do not know what my spiritual life would have been like if I did not know the lyrics of most Jesus Culture, Hillsong and Bethel Music songs by heart. Continue reading “MUSIC THAT SANCTIFIES – HILLSONG: LET THERE BE LIGHT”

bd 2017-03-27 at 4.05.08 PMHey Beautiful People,

It has been a while. Lagos has been doing me and I have been doing Lagos too. LOL!

I turned 23 on Monday. I am super grateful to God for the gift of life. I didn’t particularly have “fun”, but Mr. Biyi (A partner at the firm) had the good mind to take my friends and I for lunch at Eko Hotels.

A word for this Lenten Season

photogrid_1488363885645It is the Lent Season, and I think it is perfect to emphasize this;

If you do not have anything nice to say to a person then do not say it at all.

It isn’t really difficult.

Especially when;

1) You are the superior (at work…)
2) You are older.
3) You haven’t really worked closely with this person.

A lot of people crumble beneath their skin because of words said to them by people who have no idea who they really are.

Some people inhale the harsh words of others and collapse psychologically.

People react differently.

Generally; formal and informal…stranger or acquaintance…we should do well to say nothing if we have nothing to say.

If you don’t have anything nice to say to a person then don’t talk at all.

If you don’t have anything to say to a person then don’t say it at all.

If you don’t have anything nice to say to a person then don’t talk at all.

In the Spirit of Lent, may we be meek. May our words be seasoned with grace.

Love and Light.

Comfort the Disturbed. Disturb the Comfortable

Me. Today. Disturbing my poor shoki skills.

Poetry does it for me. I spend half of my internet subscription downloading spoken word poetry. They are investments of some sort. For the future. A minute later. A day later. A year later. A safe house for when I’m depressed. Poetry for me is the way one word, sentence jumps out and crawls into my soul. It is the way I open my heart and entire being to that word/sentence and never let go.

Of Favourite Movies And Facebook Friends. 

From the Internet-connected net

He died at the age of 22. I am 22. I couldn’t stop the tears from flowing and at night, I went to bed with thoughts of Freddie Steinmark on my mind – spent an hour reading everything I could find on him from the Internet.
