What do you treasure?

What do you treasure? by Toyosi Adegunle Something happens when you like, love, or have a crush on someone. When you love a web series/ TV show. When you have to be home to an exciting thing, or when see an item you desire in a physical or online store. Whatever you love is your focus - your heart will be on it. You will yearn for it, you can't wait to focus on everything you love and want to have, your desires will be your treasure. Treasures are hidden gifts or virtues of high importance to an individual. Treasures can take any form, they are very special, important, and valuable. They mean the world to people. There's a universal attitude to what you love, they are protected, cherished and most importantly, people never want to lose their treasures.  Have you ever had to let go of someone or something you loved?

Meet my husband Nigerian couple in Canada (Video) by Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun Hi everyone, meet my husband! We are a Nigerian couple based in Canada. We were in a long-distance marriage for 14 months and I thought it was a great idea to introduce him to my youtube channel and my blog. If you're a follower on any of my social media platforms, you already know him.  Don't worry, I didn't forget to share how we met in this "Meet my husband" video because I intend to record that as a separate video when the time is right.  Ephesians 5:25: "For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her." We shared some relationship nuggets, I know y'all live for things like that. lol. Show us some love on the video with your likes, subscribes and comments.  With love, Bibi 

How to guard your heart on Social Media

How to guard your  heart on Social Media by Toyosi Adegunle Half the time, if not always, your actions and thoughts are a result of what you listen to, watch and read. Guarding your heart involves guarding your thought process and check-mating what you take in lest you'll be filled with junk. Trust me, this is a basic life principle. Even as a random person, you can't give everything and everyone access to your life and mental space, you will be drained in no time.  As a believer, it's not okay to give everything - challenges, trends, quotes, advice aka hot takes,  on social media access to your heart, thought process, and actions. You have to pay extra cautious attention to what you read, watch, jump on, and listen to, to preserve your basic human decency, values,   morals, and spiritual virtues. It's not enough that you checkmate what you take in, it is also very important to not feel like you are missing out on anything. If you make efforts to keep it together and co

What, Who and How should I evangelize

What, Who and How should I evangelize   by Toyosi Adegunle Hey Family! Been a minute. This sounds cliche but I trust this meets you well. Lol. Really, I write in faith and hope that you are well. Today, we gist about evangelism. A few days ago, a believer shared a tweet on how she preached the gospel to her Muslim Uber driver who according to her listened patiently. A tweet about evangelism. As you may have guessed right or likely witnessed if you're active on Twitter, this tweet became a catalyst for many takes, stories and experiences revolving around evangelism, and the following takes/questions were most prominent due to observation. Preaching to an Uber Driver is an invasion of privacy and harassment. Preaching to people of other religions is harassment. Seek permission or consent before preaching the gospel Preach the gospel to anyone, anywhere because Jesus did also and he's the standard. To mention a few, these are the most prominent conclusions and opinions on Twitter

Priortize your spiritual growth this year

by Toyosi Adegunle Hey Fam!  This would be our first contact this year, so, from me and mine, www.bibilamour04.com (what were you expecting? 👀😂 ), I wish you a very beautiful year laced with the wisdom, strength, and mercies of God. I'm super excited to be in 2021 with you, and I want you to see it as another opportunity to live every day for Jesus, because If it's not about Jesus, what or who is it about? As always, when men say there's a casting down, you will say there's a lifting up. 2021 may not be the easiest or smoothest ride, but best believe, it would be for you because through it all, God is with you. The Word of God did not promise us a smooth sail in life always, but promised strength, grace, and victory every time, in all these things, you are more than a conqueror.  In the very words of a friend, the reason for another second, minute, hour, day, week, month, or year is because of the gospel, your spiritual growth, and your relationship with the father.
