Welcome again to the blog, you’ll be excited to learn that this post is not much of a read. I only wanted to share 5 songs from my playlist with you. These are songs I listen to, and am blessed by almost daily. I hope you listen and are blessed by them today, let me know in the comment section which ones you fall in love with. Enjoy!
First up , are two songs praising God and remembering his creation. I love listening to songs that describe God’s mightiness and the greatness of his creation. I’m always left in awe of how amazingly mighty my creator is. The songs showcasing these descriptions are; So Will I by Hillsong and a Yoruba song (Oluwa O Tobi) with translations by Evangelist Tope Alabi.

How are you doing? I know Monday is not my official posting schedule, but I decided to post anyways. I’ve procrastinated writing a blog post for two weeks, and that’s not cute.

I miss sharing random thoughts, reading your beautiful stories and learning from you, that’s why this post is up. Continue reading “Let’s Chat ||Life Lately + Current Season”

In this post, I will be sharing the not- so flashy realities of studying abroad. Continue reading “Let’s Chat- Realities of studying Abroad | Is it worth it? Part 2”
There’s really no point to this post, but I was going through my random notes and got reminded of what I wrote about Ephesians 4:30 two months ago. It’s a short writing I always go to for encouragement, and I hope it encourages you today. Have a fruitful week!
“And do not bring sorrow to God’s Holy Spirit by the way you live. Remember, he has identified you as his own, guaranteeing that you will be saved on the day of redemption.” – Ephesians 4:30 Continue reading “Random Notes- Abundant Grace “

Today, I’m sharing with you four ways to make your blog posts or writings more readable. I can’t count the number of times I have been interested in reading a blog post, but lose interest almost immediately because of bad grammar and appearance. Your blog might be losing readers that you are not aware of due to this, and I hope this post helps in avoiding that.By no means am I a perfect writer, but I have learnt a lot since starting my blog, and I’m sharing these minimal tips with you, especially fellow bloggers.

When you become a believer in a world that is forgetting God, and choosing to live life the way it pleases, you start to see the world in its broken state. It’s like you are given fresh lenses that enable you view the world differently. When you begin to see this brokenness, it’s easy to lose hope in God’s redemption plan sometimes.
You start to take some of the worlds’ burden upon yourself, and it is too much to carry. I can’t count the number of times I thought to myself and prayed that God will just come back already. Continue reading “How to live in a world deficient of God’s presence”
It’s back to school season, and I’m not sure how I feel about that yet (ask me in 3 weeks), but I hope you are excited, especially if you’re just starting out in college.

In the midst of excitement and nervousness, it’s quite easy to forget a few important things you need for school no matter how basic, but don’t worry, I’m here to remind you of them.
Here are 5 things you shouldn’t be forgetting this school year: Continue reading “Back To School Reminder || Things you should have ready for school”
I’m sorry for neglecting my style posts for the longest time, it’s mostly because I assumed that you enjoyed my ‘deep’ posts more. I also don’t think I’m the most stylish person, when compared to fashion bloggers who you can probably learn more from, but I received a comment this week requesting more style posts, and who am I to ignore. That was my cue to bring back style posts, and here’s the first one after several months. Hope you like it!

I know I know, the title of this post sounds all fancy and official, and I have my friend, Sophia to thank for that. She suggested that I write this, and it surprised me that I never thought to write about prayer before. I probably thought I had something similar up since prayer is so dear to my heart, but I guess I was wandering in dreamland. You might have noticed that every religion has elements of prayer in it. That’s because if you believe in God or something greater than yourself, you understand the need to put your hope and trust in the entity ruling over you and the whole world, an entity that knows and controls everything from past to the future.
Prayer stems from accepting that you need to worship/ reverence God, and make your requests known to him. It is casting your burdens at his feet and letting him take care of them. You pray because you are fighting battles against demons and principalities that you cannot see. Prayer time is a time to bask in the glory of your maker, and allow your heart experience his mightiness. Prayer opens doors, moves mountains, breaks chains, soothes your soul and allows you to feel God’s presence constantly.
Think about it this way, God Almighty has given unworthy you unconditional access to approach his throne of grace and mercy, and you ought to take full advantage of the privilege. Here’s a simple definition of prayer by Dr. Ralph Martin that I love; “Prayer is at root simply paying attention to God.” It is humbling yourself, accepting that it is not about you or your situation, but it’s instead all about God and his glory. This is what we are created for anyways, to glorify God!
Now that you understand why you need to pray, let’s get into the practicals of making prayer a lifestyle: Continue reading “The Underestimated Power of Prayer”
