Rising Above Fear and the COVID19 disease

Rising Above Fear & Disease
 by - Dr. Ogor Ben-Iweagwu
"The prayer of faith is the prayer based on what Christ has done." - Bishop Wale Ajayi
I will add to the quote above, not based on what Corona has done or what we are scared it will do. 

We are in Christ, first, before we are in a location, or under the plague of COVID 19. It means that Christ is our location, first, before Abuja or New York or Sydney or Toronto.
It means that, because we were purchased with the blood of Jesus, it is actually his blood that literally flows in our veins. Please, take the Bible and the word of GodLITERALLYin this season. Don’t try to reason it out, don’t try to make logical sense of it. The word of God is not something that is to be brought to a conversation or some logical conclusion; the word of God is infallible.
We are believers, and we are called to be strong AND courageous, not to cower in fear.
Colossians 1:2 (KJV) “To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Gr…

Fun Q and A with a Christ-centered couple

Q and A with a Christ-centered couple
Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog. I hope we're all doing well with everything going on globally. Stay encouraged, you're hid in Christ in God. Listen to the authorities and stay safe. The application of faith and wisdom is not mutually exclusive. This week, I'm doing something different on this platform. It's sad that I see many unmarried people discouraged about the marriage institution based on the negative stories we hear daily.
Like someone once said, "Marriages are like flights. Thousands arrive safely daily but we only hear about the ones that crash." Just because you're not surrounded by positive marriages doesn't mean it's unrealistic. There are people flourishing in their marriage and you too can be one of them.
I reached out to a couple of my married friends whom I admire deeply and asked them some marriage-related questions. This week is all about Morin and Bolaji. I hope their story, journey and o…

Self-confidence versus Godfidence

Self-confidence versus Godfidence ByOluwatoyosi Adegunle  Edited by Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun  
At a time during my undergraduate days, I believed that if a student studies well, and does everything right, success is sure. I never pitied anyone who had a carryover, never gave them possible or obvious excuses that could have caused failure, because I concluded it was due to unseriousness or lack of preparation, which might be true and can cause failure too. I believed in my work so much that I didn't see anything that could stop me from making all A's in my courses, which is also a good attitude as well. You need to believe in and hype yourself, but never ever take away the presence and contribution of God's power, grace, and enablement from anything you do. 
Lo and behold, I did everything right, read so well and hard, boom! I had a carryover. "What?!?! How is that even possible" I thought. I was so devastated, cried so hard and prayed to God for help and I realized …

Dealing with sexual desire

Dealing with sexual desire By Pastor Brume Omoefe 
Whether you are a man or woman, dealing with sexual desire is something that you will face at many points in your unmarried life (and then again in different ways through your married life as well). Learning to deal with these desires in a healthy way is a discipline that will last you deep into your married life as well.
Sexuality and sexual desire are a God-given, God-created gift- but how do take the next steps in keeping those gifts from becoming a point of struggle?
What science says...
A study involving 2,035 married participants in an online assessment of marriage called RELATE."Showed the following:
