The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Dear crush, it seems we have been avoiding deep conversations since we started catching feelings for each other. There are a lot of things I wished I could say to you directly but I am afraid that you will cut off this beautiful bond between us.
So, I am breaking this silence with my keypad and notepad, attempting to tell you that I love you, and my love for you is pure and perfect – a slice of paradise.
However, there are things I may do or say that will hurt you temporarily, and there are things I may refuse to do or say that will make you doubt my love for you.
I am an imperfect man on a quest for perfection and full resurrection, yes resurrection.
My heart was broken, burned and buried by some of the ‘friends’ that occupied it in the past
I have lost touch with the reality of romance because the fragrance of my heart was polluted with the flame of falsehood, betrayal and deception.
I have loved the wrong people the right way and loved the right people the wrong way because my emotions were bereft of purity and godly purposes.
My love was blind because it lacked the Light of God. My love was dead because it lacked the life of Christ. I was looking for love in the wrong places – filling the God-shaped hole in my heart with the pleasures of this world.
All my previous displays of affection were born out of a distasteful desire – to fulfil the lust of the flesh. Although I tried to do what was right, but I was on the wrong side of morality and far from divinity.
At a point in time, depression began to set in, I drowned deeply in the ocean of frustration. While jumping from one random relationship to another, I found myself in the valley of the shadow of death, but the love of God was reckless, excess and limitess enough to find me.
God came running after me to rescue me. He lighted up every shadow, and whispered to me, “Dear son, death is swallowed up in victory”.
He transported me from the valley of the shadow of death to the mountain of the rainbow of life.
God added flavour and colour to my life, and now I can boldly say that I am salt and light to my world. I was rescued for such a time as this and ransomed for a treasure like you.
Dear crush, I am growing and healing fast, and I am trying not to go back to the pit God pulled me from and the sins He saved me from.
So, I may not say all the things you want me to say or do all you want me to do but I can guarantee you that if you allow God’s love to find expression in your heart and our friendship, we will do life together and love each other as Christ loved the church…
In the meantime, let’s flow in faith, fun and friendship. I hope this is not as complicated as you thought it would be.

I have never been this emotional while writing a piece. It’s been 7 years of sweet moments and memories as a blogger. Yaaaaay! It’s also my first time of making a special post to celebrate the sweet souls who make WordPress a sanctuary of sort for me.
I have shared how rough and tough 2020 was for me; how I was hopeless, helpless and homeless for months, but I must say that the amazing family and friends I met here made me sail through that stormy season without drowning in depression.
During my downtime, I read a lot of inspiring and uplifting pieces that made me discover the beauty and blessings of adversity. It’s comforting to know that someone is here to read my teardrops in word.
I started 2020 with over 100 followers but now, my WordPress family has gotten bigger and stronger.
With every notification of a new follower I get, I see an amazing being with distinct skills, expertise, experiences, ideas and viewpoints, having something valuable to lend and learn. This is not about having stats and figures to flaunt, but a family to do life with.
I started blogging to share my heart and art with others, to inspire and encourage them. I never knew that it’s going to be a safe space that will give me solace, succour and strength someday.
I’m grateful to you all for being a part of my blogging journey so far, especially those who gave me their shoulder to lean on. I’m grateful for every single like, comment, share and reblog. I feel encouraged by your engagements with my blog and every single post.
This platform has helped me to achieve the following:
Be a blessing to people through written and spoken words.
Connect with fantastic people from different countries and co-write articles with great minds.
Be a better writer, content creator and communicator.
Share of the wisdom, wonders and wealth of fellow bloggers through their contents.
Thank you all once again for your engagements and encouragement. As my way of celebrating you all, I am giving out a free copy of my new book Whispers of Winners (Daily Edition) to all my friends. Download it here.
Feel free to share your thoughts about my blog in the comment sections. Cheers to many more love, lines and landmarks. Thank you.
Words shape our world. The kind of words you speak to people can make them cheerful or feel awful. Your soul needs the right words to attract bliss and blessings. Make it a point of duty to say beautiful things over your life this always. Say these over your life: This year will be my best […]Declaration of Victory – Day 2
I thought I was going to die after losing all my savings to a fraudster on the 18th of September, 2020. It seems everyone learnt something the hard way this year.
After this incident, I became broken, bitter, hopeless, and homeless. It was the beginning of a draining and devastating wilderness journey. It felt as if all the forces of life was against me. I couldn’t feel myself for weeks.
I have always believed that rock bottom is a place of recovery and discovery, but I must confess that it’s hard to focus when one is going through the flood and flames of life. I began to look for ways to get justice.
I disconnected myself from almost everyone; I couldn’t bear the pain of explaining how stupid I was to my friends. The most devastating part of it was that, eighty percent of those I shared my pain with couldn’t help, some even acted like they don’t care.
It was then that God caught my attention and started speaking to me. The most assuring word He gave me was, “You were not defrauded; you were delivered.”
Well, I had no other option than to trust the only One who never left me in that stormy season.
My hope of getting justice quickly was dashed as the court where the case was to be heard got burnt during the EndSars protest in Nigeria. I became more devastated and had to take leave from work.
After a while, I started studying the Bible more and spent more time in prayers. Then I began to discover the power of faith backed up with the spoken word. I was inspired to start speaking ‘restoration with compensation’ into existence. After a while, I got approached by the superior of the agent that defrauded me. They decided to have an out-of-court settlement.
On the 18th of December, 2020, exactly three months after I was defrauded, I got my money back. God is faithful, and yes, He hears the whispers of winners!
I know a lot of people may have suffered some form of loss/defeat, and trusting God for recovery and victory.
After the traumatic experience, I was inspired to write a book of daily declaration of victory, Whispers of Winners (Daily edition). This book is inspired by God, and I believe that it will help every user to maximize the power of the spoken word. It is not just a compilation of positive declarations, but a faith-booster for unlimited victory.
Words are powerful tools for complete and permanent victory. However, words are powerless without faith! Faith gives our words wings to fly.
Faith brings confirmations out of affirmations
Faith brings precious possessions out of confessions
Faith helps us to take delivery of our declarations
Faith brings evidence out of expectations
Faith is the magnet of supernatural manifestation.
As you use this book, speak with faith in your heart and pay attention to the divine signals and triggers, God will give you specific instructions, write them down and take prompt action. I trust that this book will be your visa to unending victory in Jesus name.
Happy new year to you all. Thank you for being a great part of my blog this year. Kindly share my new book with your friends. Thank you.
They buried us in unmarked graves,
We turned the graves into gardens.
We are not dead slaves
but sacred seeds buried to bloom.
We were thrown into the fire
but we came out with sparkles.
We are not a complete wreckage
but nascent gems with crinkles.
We were pressed and crushed,
we bled and became exotic wine.
Painful processes we endure
knowing that we were born to bloom.
A lot of things seem to have drained life out of many people this year: pandemic, protests, politics, police brutality, loses, looting, lockdown, mental health challenges, fear of failure, fear of success and other strange storms that featured in this movie called 2020.
I have a feeling that a lot of people have given up on the year already. However, there is another group of people who believe that 2020 is their year of boom, bloom, bliss and boon. My friends, no matter how the year has been, I want you to know that failure is not the opposite of success, it’s an opportunity to succeed. War is not the absence of peace but an avenue to attain victory.
Don’t allow fear and frustration deny you of the beauty and blessings within and around you. Dare to sing, smile and celebrate your small wins…
Relax, reflect, rejoice & raise your voice in appreciation, being alive is a big win. Happy new month!

Thank you for taking the time to read this. Kindly share your views about this year in the comment section. What’s your biggest lesson and blessing in 2020?
Appreciation is not merely an alluring attitude, it’s an application for more allocation.
Hurray! It’s the season for gratitude, giving, and gathering with a lot of turkeys to grab and grub. It may feel like there is nothing much to be grateful for because of the man twists and turns of 2020. Your Thanksgiving celebration plans might be a bit different because of Covid, you don’t need a masterplan to make a masterpiece...
Whether you’ll be celebrating with your family or maybe you’ll be spending the holiday all by yourself.
Don’t let the lockdown make your frown, do all you can to reflect, relax and rejoice. It’s Thanksgiving!
Amid the strange storms I have face this year, what is there to be thankful for?
I am thankful for many things: I published my first book this year, I had my biggest financial breakthrough ever, though I was betrayed by a friend and I lost everything. Rock bottom becamee a place of discovery and recovery for me. I now spend more time to read and engage in personal development programs. I am still believing God for rest, restoration and compensation, but I am thankful for His love, light and all the blessings of life.
I am particularly thankful for new friends and family on WordPress. You all sprinkle loads of sweetness with your warm words. I decided to share my Thanksgiving poem with y’all since I can’t share some grilled turkey with you due to social distancing (winks).
Thank You Lord
For the beauty that eyes cannot see,
For the blessings of glow and glee
For life’s bliss so fill and free
Thank You, dear God.
For yearly doses of hope and delight,
For daily loads of love and light,
For tranquil desires at twilight,
Thank You, dear God.
For the strength to run life’s race,
For smiles garnished with grace
For warmth in every embrace.
Thank You, dear God.
For lifted spirits during the lockdown,
for converting every cross to crown,
For raising us when we fall,
Thank You, dear God.
For sunlight and refreshing raindrops
For sweetness wrapped in teardrops,
For the harvest of cash and crops,
Thank You, dear God.
For good health in Covid-19 pandemic,
For meals that heal and life’s tonic,
For saving us from pain and panic,
Thank You, dear God.
