The WOW Factor!

Have you ever seen a beautiful person walk by and spun your head around to keep staring, before you had a second to think about your actions? Have you ever watched a magician pull off such an awesome trick that your mouth dropped open before you could even […]

As You Love Me

Lord, I need Your help today To love someone who doesn’t love me To treat them with kindness Even when they abuse and insult me Help me to love them Your way Knowing that when I hated You You took the punishment for my wrongs Even though I […]

Afraid to Disagree?

Many people think I am nice. You know, because I am Christian, they feel I ought to be nice, friendly and agreeable. And the fact that I am charitable and compassionate magnifies the perception that I am naive, easy and a push over. Resisting other people’s urge to […]

What do you make time for?

Time is one thing that we are always complaining about. Whether there’s not enough time in the day and you’re too busy, or you’ve got too much time on your hands and you’re terribly bored. Or maybe you can’t wait to grow up so you can do this […]

I am Pro-Life, but… (Part Two)

In my previous post, I concluded my discussion by ending with an appeal for women to take the sacrificial route, rather than demand their right to their bodies and life in the abortion debate.  However, I thought more on it and realised that the debate doesn’t end there. […]

I am Pro-Life, but…

Yes, there’s a but.  There was no ‘but’ before I got pregnant myself and experienced the reality and the mystery of it all.  Before, there was no argument in my mind about it.  I was – and still am – Pro-Life, because of my fundamental belief in God […]

Don’t Let Me Fall

(Originally published on ufuomaee.tumblr.com) Don’t let me fall! Though I throw my head back And I scream and I shout And I act like I don’t want you around… Don’t let me fall! I don’t know what I do When I do these to you But you should […]

The 7-Day #GratitudeChallenge

A friend of mine on Facebook nominated me for the #GratitudeChallenge seven days ago, and my initial thought was – “As if?!!  Who has the time?”  But my Spirit reminded me that there’s always time to be grateful, and well, I have lots to be thankful for. Today, […]

Ufuomaee’s Seven Reasons To Wait

The pressure is ON to loose your virginity like yesterday!!!  Parents who might have otherwise counseled you, forbade you or restricted you from sexual involvement before marriage, are now encouraging you to use protection because they have given in to the belief that YOU WILL DO IT ANYWAY, […]

Who’s on the Lord’s side?

Are you my brother or my enemy? These days it is hard to tell! So many profess the same faith, but their actions are as diverse from yours as the many colours of the rainbow. It is hard to know who is really sincere, who’s right and who’s […]

You Are My Wealth

The other day, while I was praying, I said this to God and was taken aback by how profound it was.  Until I confessed it, I had never really thought of God that way before.  I mean, He is my Wealth!  How many people can say that and […]

Great Expectations

Do you remember that catchy song from the 80s by Surface that goes “only you can make me happy”?  It was one of my favourite songs at the time, and summed up my perspective on love, or better yet – romance.  The claim is that you can’t be […]

I Will Not Remember Your Sins

“I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; And I will not remember your sins” (Isaiah 43:25). It is hard to believe that God made such a statement, because it seems like something He cannot do!  I mean, He is the all-knowing […]

As Gracious as God

The true test of love is the willingness and, ultimately, ability to forgive every conceivable wrong of the beloved. To enter into a sacred and binding commitment with another soul, one must be ready to become as gracious as God!

Hanging by the river…

Sometimes, when we are set free, we are still bound by our fear.  Mostly, it is the fear of change, failure and/or rejection, which stops us from walking in our new liberty.  We hang around the familiar, the common, and do not exercise our faith.  This is not […]
