#Testimony: You are Never Lost

Hi Lovely,

f312508a-aba3-4719-8c5c-2fc66fe3b523

This is the most random post I’ve ever written, but stick with me, I promise this is going somewhere. I feel led to encourage someone who is struggling or feels stuck. I want to let you know that God is with you amidst your struggle. Something I learnt recently is that God is faithful to us because ‘Faithful’ is who he is. He won’t be God if he is not faithful to us. Continue reading “#Testimony: You are Never Lost”

Sermons that will feed your Soul! On Dating and Sex

Hey there,

You probably know this, but in case you’re new here, my name is Oyinlola, and I’m Christian. I’m not the Christian that believes in shying away from real conversations. I believe Jesus came to challenge our wrong mindsets through his word (he had conversations all through the bible), so our hearts can be transformed. This is why I appreciate pastors/ministers who deliver unfiltered sermons, through empowerment by the Spirit. No longer should Christians pretend that they are not affected by relationship and sex issues. Truth is, we do think about dating and sex, and for a long time, the church avoided delving into these matters. This means that young people like me have been learning about relationships and sex from the world, and we’ve been struggling. These issues affect us, and if we do not learn what God has to say about them, we’ll never attain his fullness for our lives, and always settle for mediocre.

How to be on social media and not be drained #Soulgoals

No one loves social media more than me. Actually that’s a lie, a lot of people love social media more than I do. The point is, I am a sucker for social platforms (God bless those innovators), especially Instagram because I share experiences, pictures, and connect with people easily on it. However, I’m not oblivious to the sunken hole that social media can become. I know this because I’ve almost gone there. Not knowingly, but I started using social media as a coping mechanism when something wasn’t right within. It was easy to recognize that I was getting to this point because I’ve always known how to balance my media presence and state of mind. I never allow people’s posts phase me because I know it’s the best part of their lives, and everyone hides the bad. However, I wasn’t thinking about all these when I needed the socials to take my mind off reality. I’m not sure if this happens to other people, so let me know of your experience.

Relationships: Are We Really Friends?

For the past year, God has had a lot to teach me about relationships. Not just romantic relationships, but every form- friendships, colleagues, classmates, family and sibling relationships- you name it. I’ll write several posts tackling each kind of relationship, but the one that’s on my heart at the moment is friendships.

Quick background: I enjoy being around people, and I make friends easily, but I’ve never been one to let anyone too close. As I’ve noticed, a lot of worldly friendships are this way.

We humans are so helpless that we don’t know how to build real friendships without Gods’ help. We build surface level friendships, and avoid getting to know each other deeply, or we share too much about ourselves to the wrong people. We gossip, laugh, even have fun together, but our souls hurt inside and we never share. As long as the faces we put up look fine, and we slay together, we’re good right?

Life in the Spirit

img_0991

For long I pondered this question: Why are a lot of Christians not as powerful as Christians used to be and can be? I’ll read my bible, and see power that Christians like Paul and Peter exhibited, and I’ll ask God why I don’t have the same power. Even before Christ came, men like Daniel and his friends experienced Gods power. I know that God is still as powerful as he was then, because he does not change. This knowledge drew me to the conclusion that we are the problem, that I am the problem. Surely, it is me doing something wrong if I do not possess the power that God has made accessible to Christians. Continue reading “Life in the Spirit”

A THANK YOU ODE TO MY FATHER

2017 is a wrap! Thank you so much Jesus. I am in awe of you God, and this is my ode to you as this year comes to an end. I love you God, not because of anything I am but because of everything you are. I love you because you have have given me the privilege to know you. I didn’t do anything deserving to experience the greatness of my wonderful creator, but you chose to honor me with knowledge of you. I am standing here because you made a way, and I can’t thank you enough. Continue reading “A THANK YOU ODE TO MY FATHER”

My Style || Elegant Vs. Sophisticated

Hi Beautiful,

093d41e3-5678-4cb3-8bd2-9d29ff03c283

I thought a light post might do us some good this week. I realized I wore the same coat differently for my last two birthdays, and I want to hear your thoughts; what do you think of how I styled both looks? I love the effortless, elegant look I got from my wear last year, but I think I love the sophisticated look I wore this year even more. However, the decision is up to you, and I would love to hear your thoughts.

My coat is from Missguided.com Continue reading “My Style || Elegant Vs. Sophisticated”

Finding Peace (To the One in Doubt)

9b73dce4-0f37-4541-afdf-9459b9b8a4ad

Woow Woow woow! That is all the words I can find to sum up what a year 2017 has been. I’m writing this post a couple of days to my birthday and let’s just say I’m reflecting a bit on this year. This extremely fast, and worthwhile year. I am not one to make new year resolutions, although I should try making a list this year, to see if they actually work. I am one to pray to God for a theme for my year, and the theme for 2017 has been “Finding Peace.” The kind of peace that does not rely on success, other peoples’ acceptance, relationships, and perfection before it is fulfilled.
