For some folks, it’s the most wonderful season in the year. There is a lot of love in the air, gifts are bought and exchanged, time is spent with family and loved ones, there is excess food to go round, people indulge in over eating and understandably put on weight lol but no one seems to notice cos its CHRISTMASJ.  

My wife loves Christmas, which by default means that I love Christmas #covershisface. And my baby seems to have caught the spirit of the season. She went for her first Christmas Carol a few days back and couldn’t contain her joy as she kept removing her pacifier to scream along with the choir (especially when every other person was quiet) with a huge grin on her face much to the embarrassment of her mother ROTFLJ, she’s cute like that #hugegrin.

For some other folks, Christmas comes with mixed feelings especially for salary earners as salaries are paid earlier than usual so that they can indulge in the festive spending only to realize by 2nd January that pay day is almost another 3months away (or so it seems) lol.

I love Christmas and for me, it is a season to give especially to those who do not have the opportunity to experience the kind of Christmas that some of us have enjoyed virtually all through our lives. Last year, we had the best Christmas I have had till date my TP family and I as we fed 500 people in a remote community in the Ajah area of Lagos Nigeria. It brought tears to my eyes to see men, women and children scramble for what might end up being their only meal for the day and the way their eyes lit up when they saw that we had take-away packs for them would melt even the hardest of hearts. This year, I decided we should double that figure so we would be feeding 1000 people on Christmas day to the glory of God.

As we all go about celebrating in this season, I would like to remind us of the essence of this season.

Jesus Christ is the one we are celebrating. A gift like no other to humanity. God so loved you and I that He gave us JESUS CHRIST #perfectgift.

As you exchange gifts this season and share love this season, I would like to encourage you to share Jesus with someone everyday this season. This is the best gift you can give to someone who is yet to have a personal encounter with Christ. Make a conscious deliberate effort, go out of your way and comfort zone and tell someone about Jesus Christ everyday this season, you will be empowering his/her generation by doing so.

I love you and I am looking forward to receiving my Christmas giftsJ

Have a Blessed weekend.

What Are You Watching?


Yesterday, I put up a dp on my bbm and comments kept rolling in from various people, some for and some against while a few didn’t really have any strong opinions on the matter. Below is the dp:


If you are like some people I know, I am sure you have lost track of how many TV series you have seen. Some folks are so hooked up to these series that we can barely wait for the next episode to air so we go to search on Google to check if there is any gist on the next episode (I am not sure you did that much research for your project work in the University #JustSaying lol).

I have seen virtually every episode of every season of the TV series Scandal, and it wasn’t until very recently that it occurred to me that Olivia Pope the major character in the series is an ideal icon for all mistresses all over the world. I did a little research and found out that there are millions of hits on how to dress like Olivia Pope, Olivia Pope Fashion, striking an Olivia Pope pose, the Olivia Pope wine glass etc. This fictitious woman is an idol for so many adults and children alike. Unfortunately, the subtle message portrayed by this series besides the lovely drama and power play is that it is okay to be a mistress; It is acceptable to be in love with a married man; there actually is nothing really wrong with loving and sleeping with a married man rather, you can be a powerful person even while doing so #AskOliviaPope.

 And for the woman who finds out that her husband is having an affair, Mellie Grant’s advice is that you should encourage the relationship where it helps you keep your home and ambitions alive, and have an affair of your own while you are at it.

I watch Bruce Jenner on TV these days and I smile a knowing smile (I can hear most of you correct me; Caitlyn, not Bruce lol. well, that’s my point exactly). Every or most TV shows/movie these days portrays a cute gay couple and sexy transgender person and nice drug addict and subliminally, we have begun to accept this as our current realities and imbibe it into our culture.

I was thinking about this this morning and the Holy Spirit pointed me to Gen 3:1;

Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God really say, 'You must not eat from any tree in the garden'?" (NIV)

The American Standard Version interpreted the word “Crafty” above as “Subtle”. The devil being crafty/subtle knew about what we NLP practitioners call “Auto-suggestion” and in the form of a question, introduced an option for man to second guess an instruction that was very clear; the devil asked man “Did God really say?”

And the Holy Spirit opened my eyes to see that the devil is playing the same game he played at the beginning with mankind all over again. You might not have seen it this way, but I am calling your attention to it today by penning down some of the questions I have had to answer myself during or after watching some of the things we are exposed to today:

·         Did God not make ALL Things?

·         Did He not also make some people gay?

·         Did God say you should condemn anyone? Didn’t He say you should love your neighbor as yourself (even if they are clearly heading to hell)

·         Is there really anything wrong with the union of a man and a man if they are obviously in love and make a nice family unit?

·         Is it not just fiction?

·         Are you not being insensitive and overtly spiritual about this matter?

I am sure you can add your own questions to that growing list, but what the devil is doing is subtly introducing these abnormalities into our minds and eventually our society as a norm thereby giving so many people over to a reprobate mind. Unfortunately, a lot of people would not see the sense in some of the things I am trying to point out, but that is okay (as sad as it may be) we will keep praying for God to reign supreme over us all.

I close with this scripture that has been a guide for me:

Prov 4:23; Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. (NIV)
