The human body comes in different colours but the human soul is colourless, just different flavours of divinity from the Source of life — many graces, one God. We are different verses in one universe.
The world will be distasteful without diversity, and no doubt our world will be in disarray when there is disunity. Imagine a world where everyone has the same talent and trait — no vibe, no versatility, just vibrant souls stuck in a void structure.
We are different spirits vibrating at different frequencies of faith and freedom — configured to be creative, made to manifest limitless possibilities.
Diversity is designed to create room for compassion and creativity. Irrespective of our tongues and tribes, we are created to communicate compassion fluently. Love is our universal language. We all are unique sounds in God’s symphony.
God is very the master builder. Everything He made is a masterpiece. Every creation, every colour and every culture are breathtaking beadworks of His multifaceted glories.
No one is inferior or superior to the other, each one of us is an epitome of eternal excellence — lavished with love, garnished with grace and nurtured with nobility.
God is too beautiful to be expressed in one colour. We all are a part of this divine edifice. Jaw-dropping jewels in a terrific treasure chest. Sparkling stars in a golden galaxy — all shades of love and light.
We all are made in His indelible and ineffable image. We are streams of eternal substance.
When last did you read or listen to a ‘breaking news’ that broke your heart? Let me guess, some minutes ago, right? I know that times seem to have changed without giving us a heads up, and our world is fast becoming somewhat strange. But maybe we all need to tune to a better broadcasting station void of negative news and repulsive reports.
In our world today, as nations fight against nations, economic instability seems to be at war with emotional stability. As funds are dropping, faith seems to be declining too. As debts are increasing, despair seems to be rising too. Wars and rumours of war are raging against global and personal peace.
But in all these, we all must strive to stay sane, safe and strong – a victory we must all win against all horrible happenings and negative news. We must never lose heart. We must never settle for less. We must never settle for the lies of the devil.
In every trial and tribulation, the truth still holds, “we are more than conquerors” Romans 8: 37. God has better broadcasting stations. It’s time to tune in to divine frequencies. It’s time to get back on the ‘Track of Truth’, and take back our peace. We must not let situations shut us out of the frequency of faith, hope and joy. We all need help. We all need hope and, no doubt, our world needs healing.

On the 9th of February 2022, I woke up at about 4:30 am and had a strong push in my heart to pray for my mother who was battling gastric cancer. I was still in my prayer mood when I got a call from my elder sister that my mom was in a critical condition and had been placed on life support.
I sent messages to some of my friends to pray for my mom while I set out to go see her at the hospital. By the time I got to the hospital, she had passed on. I wept bitterly looking at my mom’s lifeless body on the hospital bed. I refused to be consoled until I sensed a divine atmosphere around me and I saw my mom smiling in heaven. I quickly wiped away my tears knowing that she is in a place of eternal bliss where there is no pain or sickness.
I remembered that I still saw her the weekend before her death, I never imagined that I won’t speak to her again. God knows best.
We had to bury her three days after her death. After the funeral, I had to resume back to work. The pressure became too much on me and I started having some strange symptoms. I was scared for my life because of the backlog of health issues I was dealing with before then.
I was recommended to go for two major medical procedures barely three weeks after my mom’s burial.
In all of this, I was dealing with a toxic work environment. It was as if all hell was let loose. I couldn’t pray as I used to. I became emotionally numb. I had to resort to deep Bible study and occasional worship.
It’s tough to sustain a joyful atmosphere amid strange storms and painful experiences but I constantly had to remind myself that joy is my perpetual atmosphere and I can’t lose it even if I’m going through hell and high waters.
I’m still trusting God for victory over all the situations that are threatening my joy but through it all, I rejoice.
While I was meditating on God’s word this morning, I was inspired to write this short piece.
Joy is the seal of God’s presence. It’s the atmosphere of heaven. Heaven is where God lives. So, because God lives within me. I am heaven’s expression on earth. Even if I am going through hell, God still lives in and with me. I will never forget who I am. I will never lose my joy. I am heaven’s expression on earth. I perpetually host God’s presence. Joy is my eternal atmosphere.
I hope to fully get back on my feet emotionally. But in the meantime, I will keep basking in the joy of God’s presence.
Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Habakkuk 3:17 KJV
Have a great one, friends. Love and light, Adeleke Adeite
Oftentimes, the challenges of life shake the foundations of our faith so much that we tend to forget who God is, what He has said, what He can do, and who we are to God.
The moment we begin to doubt the integrity, ability, and sovereignty of God, then, discouragement, despair, and darkness begin to set in.
We need to constantly remember the person, the power, and the promises of God if we must sail through storms seasons without drowning.
If our faith does not fail, we will eventually prevail.
Faith is the key to unlocking the victories given to us by God. Our faith flourishes when we focus on the presence of God amid pain and pressure.
God sometimes permits pain and pressure to promote and protect us. It takes crushing and pressing to produce new wine. God will use whatever the enemy designed against us for our good and His glory.
My dear friends, today, be reminded of these timeless truths…
God is too faithful to fail you. God is too merciful to forsake you. God is too mindful to forget you. God is too powerful to be defeated. God is too wonderful to be limited. God is too beautiful to be degraded. This great God lives in you and loves you recklessly.
Scripture Reference. Isaiah 41:10-13 ESV
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Behold, all who are incensed against you shall be put to shame and confounded; those who strive against you shall be as nothing and shall perish. You shall seek those who contend with you, but you shall not find them; those who war against you shall be as nothing at all. For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.”
A few months ago, I went through a severe storm that almost made me drown in depression again.
What kept me afloat was the last strand of my faith in God. I have lost many friends in the process, I felt completely lost and lonely. I became weak and weary. I kept my eyes on mountain tops even in the darkest rock bottom.
Life became a dark tale of pain and pressure but through it all, I held onto God, He kept me safe and made me sail through without losing my joy. In the midst of it all, His love became more real to me, His light guided me, and His joy was my strength. I am still healing. I am still believing in God for total restoration. My faith still stands in the deep.
In all of this, I have learned to be thankful even when I’m going through hell and high water. God knows, God sees, God hears. Thank you for reading.
Be encouraged my friends. Praise Him even in your pains.
Hello friends, it’s been a while. I trust you all are doing great. I’ve been in the valley of decision and transition for a while. I’m believing God for more opportunities to share great contents here soonest.
I was inspired to share some lessons I have learnt in the valley of decisions earlier today. I am sure we all have some hard-learned lessons and hard-earned blessings in our darkest hours.
I have come to realise that most times, the people with the sweetest smiles and biggest blessings in public are those who have shed a million tears and made hard choices secretly.
Before we covet people’s fruit we must seek to know the kind of seed, seasons and struggles that produced their harvest. Great harvests don’t just happen. Some folks go through hell and high water before occupying their place in grace.
Some blessings are not just answered prayers or products of ‘grace’ (luck), they are rewards of strenuous sacrifices and hard choices.
God is a God of principles, you can’t manipulate Him with prayers. Some things are activated with strict obedience, diligence and resilience.
This does not mean that prayer is not necessary, in fact, prayer supplies the strength l, wisdom and grace required to sustain the blessings of God.
However, we must embrace the wisdom to combine prayer, faith and action in the right proportion. In knowing this, be encouraged and empowered to excel. I would like to share one of my anchor-scriptures with you.
In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation. 1 Peter 5:10
Shalom. Adeleke Adeite.
Thank you for reading. What have you all been up to lately?
We live in an imperfect world filled with flawed people. Some folks will never be sorry for the wrongs they do while some will never show appreciation for the gifts they get. If everyone on earth is perfect, there won’t be any need for tolerance and love.
Love is the fragrance that creates a balance in a world that is polluted with ignorance, arrogance and imbalance.
We cannot survive or thrive without vital relationships. Since everyone on this planet is created for connection either directly or indirectly. However, one of the things that come with connections is conflict.
No matter how much we try to cultivate love and relate responsibly, there will always be offences and arguments.
Conflict does not always indicate the absence of love, it’s sometimes a sign that someone or something is broken and needs to be fixed.
We all are imperfect, as much as we get hurt by others, we also hurt others too whether it’s intentional or not. We all need forgiveness at one point or the other in the journey of life.
However, one of the hardest things to do is to forgive someone or ignore the pain they inflicted. It becomes even more difficult when the people who hurt us refuse to show any remorse or apologise for the wrongs they’ve done. Yet we must strive to live free of hurt
Forgiveness is not a gift you give to those who hurt you, it’s a gift to yourself. Forgiveness gives us the freedom to move forward, live free and fulfil our divine purpose with joy.
Forgiveness helps us to release toxic people and the pains they caused from our living so we can receive the peace of God and lead a cheerful life.
Forgiveness is sometimes a painful process. It becomes easier to forgive when we surrender our hearts to God so He can take away the pain, heal our heart and give you His peace.
God wants us to live our best life. anger, bitterness and sadness are undoubtedly major obstacles to peace and progress. When we take the first step to submit to God, He gives us the grace to forgive freely and help us to make wise decisions going forward.
Meanwhile, forgiveness does not mean that it is okay for you to be mistreated. It doesn’t mean you have to remain in a toxic relationship or let a bad person hurt you again. One of the benefits of surrendering our hearts to God is that He gives us the wisdom to let go and also love toxic people from a safe distance.
It is POSSIBLE to forgive some people completely and still choose to stop doing life with them so that they won’t drag you into the pit of pain again. Forgiveness does not mean you have to give someone another chance to hurt you, it means you give yourself another chance to heal and have peace.
Love without forgiveness is like a bird with one wing, it can’t fly. Love enables us to give cheerfully and forgive freely. Forgiveness is not an option, it’s the only lifeline we have to live, love and lead a beautiful life. Unforgiveness is the coffin where peace, joy and progress are buried.
Intentionality is the key to true forgiveness. Start the process today. Pray for grace to let go and let God. Bury the desire to revenge. Be humble enough to acknowledge your role (if any) in the conflict. Acknowledge the fact that those who hurt you are hurting too, only a broken person will break another person. Shun blame the game. Seek counselling if you must. View offences with the lens of love.
It’s time to stop burning with bitterness and unforgiveness. Cancel your agreement with anger and animosity. Embrace the freedom, peace, love and joy that comes with the package of forgiveness. I pray that God will give you the grace to forgive yourself and others and, heal from every pain they brought to you.

Say this prayer Dear God, You are the author and anchor of my life. I acknowledge that you love me and also command me to love others. I pray that You grant me the courage I need to forgive the person who has mistreated me. I have been struggling to heal and move on. Lord, please strengthen me. I am afraid that if I forgive this person, I might get hurt again. Wipe my tears and increase my faith. Give me the wisdom to see those who hurt me the way you see them. Guide me to sort things out amicably and move on.
Help me to let go of bitterness, but at the same time, protect myself so that I won’t get hurt again. Give me more grace and strength to live in love, give cheerfully and forgive freely. Amen.
