Play the Hand You Are Dealt

This was another lesson I got from reading WILL, Will Smith’s autobiography, co-written by Mark Manson. Like I’ve said, the lessons are plenty, and I don’t know how this one was missed in the twelve I compiled last week! Actually, it was one of the early lessons that […]

God Doesn’t Want You to be Poor

“Oh, no… She has joined their ranks,” I hear someone thinking. “What do you expect when she’s listening to Joel Osteen…?’ LOL! Actually, this post wasn’t inspired by anything Joel Osteen said, at least not directly. It was actually inspired by a message preached in church last week, […]

The Prodigal Son Who Didn’t Return…

This episode is part of my podcast series DEAR ATHEIST… If you prefer, LISTEN NOW. ***** The story of ‘The Prodigal Son‘ is a definite favourite among Christians. We love it! I love it too because it’s the most explicit description of God’s extraordinary grace. And the lesson is enough to […]

It Sounds Like Baloney!

This episode is part of my podcast series DEAR ATHEIST… If you prefer, LISTEN NOW. ***** Many of us take for granted the simple message of the gospel that we have received and accepted as the TRUTH.  We’ve heard it so many times in Church, read it in so many pamphlets, […]

What You Want vs What You Need

This episode is part of my podcast series DEAR ATHEIST… If you prefer, LISTEN NOW. ***** My son has been watching “The Princess and The Frog” movie for over a month now, almost on a daily basis…  I’ve come to know the film well and the lyrics to the songs too!  One […]

Does God Play Hide and Seek With Us?

“You will seek Me and find Me, when you seek for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord…” (Jeremiah 29:13-14) Sometimes, I think God behaves like an offended wife…who has made her desire and her dissatisfaction known. As a woman, I […]

Five Things to Do When God Seems Absent

Hi guys, so I’ve been meaning to write this post. I got some renewed inspiration from reading Rick Warren’s ‘The Purpose Driven Life’ again. Also, today, I republished an oldie but goodie, ‘Where Was God?’, as part of my ‘Dear Atheist…’ podcast series. If you haven’t read it […]

Where Was God?

This episode is part of my podcast series DEAR ATHEIST… If you prefer, LISTEN NOW. ***** That must be the most asked question around.  From Atheists to Believers, at any point in time, someone going through a hardship or immense trial is asking – ‘where is God?’.  We all sort of […]

The Potter and the Clay

This episode is part of my podcast series DEAR ATHEIST… If you prefer, LISTEN NOW. ***** I am reading the book of Jeremiah now and, earlier in the week, I read Chapter 18. It was about the Potter and the Clay, and I found it rather interesting and enlightening. It reminded […]

Is God a Hypocrite?

This episode is part of my podcast series DEAR ATHEIST… If you prefer, LISTEN NOW. ***** He says, “judge not, unless you be judged,” (Matt 7:1) yet He judges us. He says, “do not repay evil with evil, but repay evil with good,” (Rom 12:17-21) yet He devises and proclaims evil […]

Is God Easily Offended?

This episode is part of my podcast series DEAR ATHEIST… If you prefer, LISTEN NOW. ***** God hates sin!  We know this.  We know also that whatever is not done of faith is sin (Rom 14:23).  That is a lot of things we do and take for granted.  As humans, we […]

What If We Are Wrong About God?

This episode is part of my podcast series DEAR ATHEIST… If you prefer, LISTEN NOW. ***** Atheists pride themselves in admitting that they could be wrong…and they just need enough proof to be convinced.  However, is it really inconceivable for Christians to consider that we could be wrong about the existence […]
