If you are an avid follower of Nigeria’s social media space, I am sure you must have come across the BuyNigeriatogrowNigeria hashtag. For my non-Nigerian readers, this trend is supposedly a means to stem the falling value of the Naira by encouraging the patronage of locally produced goods.

Anything is possible


Hey guys!

Happy new year …. 🙂

I just realised I haven’t posted anything this year 😦

This mountain, for instance: Just say, ‘Go jump in the lake’—no shuffling or shilly-shallying—and it’s as good as done. That’s why I urge you to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large. Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you’ll get God’s everything. And when you assume the posture of prayer, remember that it’s not all asking. If you have anything against someone, forgive—only then will your heavenly Father be inclined to also wipe your slate clean of sins.”
