All You Need is ONE Word From God

All you need is one word, one message from God.

One word from God can change your life forever.

  • Turns around circumstances
  • Creates peace where sorrow abounds

One word from God started creation.

  • Breathes life into emptiness
  • Gives vision to transform nations

One word from God can activate dormant blessings.

  • Ignites purpose to lukewarm faith
  • Unlocks promises for your seed and generations to follow

Are you attentive to the Lord’s voice?

  • Listen carefully, it strikes with flashes of lightning (Psalm 29:7)
  • Carries creative&healing power

Tales From 2AM Feedings: If Love Handles Were Made of Love

Five months in, these 9 moments make early morning breastfeeding worth the sleeplessness:

  1. Seeking curious hungry eyes
  2. Sloppy greedy suckles
  3. Squishy chubby hand massages
  4. Sweet milky warm breaths
  5. Snuggly love handle grabs
  6. Squiggly strong thumb grips
  7. Smiley giggly high fives
  8. Sheepish drunken smiles
  9. Singular faint exhale “huh”

As I drink him in, our eyes lock gazes, my heart swells with love, and my ample love handles melt away.

We are Africa: Africa Day 2015

I am a proud African.

Each year, Africa Day is an opportunity to celebrate African unity and accomplishments, and to reflect on challenges facing the continent.

Africa Day commemorates the founding of the Organization of African Unity (African Union) on 25 May, 1963. The theme for 2015 is “We are Africa.”

Although Africa’s economy continues to grow, it still has a long way to go with:

  • Improving public healthcare and infrastructure
  • Empowering women and girls who represent Africa’s future
  • Eradicating/reducing poverty
  • Raising a generation of incorruptible emotionally intelligent leaders

This Africa Day, I’d like to dedicate a throwback poem called Ma-Afrika. Click the animal montage to read more.

Loving on Purpose

Love is intentional:
We create love
We grow into love
We learn to love
We put on love
We love because He first loved us

Love is potential:
It has capacity to grow
It has no room for fear
It dwells in action not word
Let all that you do be done in love
Walk in the way of love

Love is unconditional:
Greater love has no one than this
To lay down one’s life for one’s friends
But if we love one another
God lives in us and His love is made complete in us
For God is love

Weekly Photo Challenge: Forces of Nature

Drip, drop. Splash, splash.
It's raining. 
Flowers are blooming. 
Spring makes all things new.

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Forces of Nature.”

Wake Up Sleepy Head

You whom the nations await in eager anticipation
Quit laying under the sun
Daydreaming of days gone by

Listen: Dive into the deep wide ocean
There is no reward for failure, only regret and fear of tomorrow

You who sits comfortably
in your perfectly designed box
Reluctant to step out
Afraid to fail

Listen: There is no reward for chronic hesitation, only delayed purpose and missed opportunities

Wake up O sleeper
Wondering where time
rests her head
Walk with purpose
Maximize each moment
Press for the prize
Love light and be wise

Tales From 2 AM Feedings: Shh I Just Got Him to Sleep

sleeping babysacred is the sound of a baby
sleeping in my bed
purring against my bosom
I inhale his milky breath
Does it carry the fountain of youth, I wonder
as beads of sweat moisten my skin and
magical fingers caress my face
