“HE’S BEEN OUR GOD WINK”

I said to my hubby, talking about a customer he had to visit early this morning. This person showed up in our life years ago and I’ve never met anyone like him – extremely humble, loyal, faithful, wise and close to God. We had a little get together at our house to celebrate Joshie’s birthday …

“LET US USE THIS AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO TRUST GOD MORE”

I said to my friend, Danny, last night. She lives in the Bahamas and I’m in Nigeria, but God figured out a way to connect us over a year ago and looking back from where I was when I first connected with her, to the person she has helped me to become, all I can …

“SOMETIMES YOU TAKE TWO OR THREE STEPS BACKWARDS”

Was my very surprising God wink yesterday! I tried downloading the latest RobCast by Rob Bell on iTunes, when for some reason it refused to download and the last episode I started listening to maybe a week or so ago kept playing instead. When these glitches happen now, I pay attention because they usually mean …

CAN I BOAST ON THE LORD TODAY?

I attended a parent/teacher coffee morning at the kids’ school and I bragged to everyone on our well my daughters, Ember and Julie, are doing. I said, “They’re not my daughters anymore, they’re my Harvard girls!” This story began back in October of last year, when their former Principal decided to recognize the top performers …

DOES LIFE HAVE YOU DEPRESSED?

Talking to a friend yesterday, I realized how much I’ve grown up over the past year or so. I was having a terrible day and I went crying to her. I said, “That sad, weak, insecure, emotional, Nikki, is gone!” I’ve replaced her with a confident, strong, stable, full of joy, steady and calm Nikki. …

“WE’RE ALL IN THIS HUMAN THING TOGETHER”

I’ve been feeling a little guilty about my last post about the lady who twisted around some stuff I shared with her to cause trouble for me. Who am I to judge anyone? We’re all sinners, which means we constantly miss the mark and mess up. Today I want to encourage us to pray for …

“THE WORLD ABOUNDS WITH NEGATIVE THINGS”

Ain’t that the truth! From one to the next, it seems as if negativity can come at us from every direction. Here’s the trick: WE MUST KEEP OUR EYES FIXED ON GOD That’s the super big challenge of our lives. No matter the negativity that comes our way, we have to pause and ask God, …

“FORGET CONFIDENCE, I’M TALKING GODFIDENCE”

I said to someone yesterday. It was a challenge that came up where once again God proved He’s my faithful Helper and Partner. I did what I always write about. I paid attention to my feelings/gut/spirit/intuition as to what God would have me to do. Ideas came to mind and I followed the ones I …

“GET YOUR FIGHT ON”

Was my advice to a friend who called me early this morning to check up on me. I know she’s been missing my calls fussing her out to not be so laid back about a situation she’s dealing with. In this life you will have trouble! Don’t expect everything to be all rosy and wonderful …

LIVE IN A CONSTANT STATE OF FORGIVENESS

This is where I’m going to PUSH myself to be more often. I have my wonderful hubby to thank for another important life lesson. It was after we an argument on the way home from work screaming at each other that I said to him that we should not let the devil in our homes. …
