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!

One of the most expensive
veils in the world is ignorance.
One of the most destructive
vices in the world is arrogance.
One of the most powerful
values in the world is tolerance.
One of the most beautiful
virtues in the world is repentance.

If love is our only language
no one will miss our message.
If love is our only possession
We’ll have no room for oppression.
If love is our only attraction
no one will drown in distraction.
If love is our only addiction,
We will all rise above restrictions.
If love is our only choice
everyone will have a voice.
If love is our only meal
everyone will work with zeal.
If love is our only currency
we will all trade with urgency.
If love is our only energy
we won’t struggle for synergy.
If love is our only source,
we won’t need any resource.
If love is all that we need…
no one will gather gains in greed.
If love is our one and only
we won’t be limited or lonely.
