God is Doing Something … 

God is using this season of life to work on you to be better. He is making you better. Teaching you patience and to trust in Him. He is listening. He is very close to the broken hearted and to those with a repentant spirit. He is near you now. Getting a visa to Canada is not proof that God loves you, you know? God's will is the only place you want to be. Be it in Sudan or Afganistan or Iraq. In God's presence is where you always want to be. Seeking His face. Embraced by His love. Hidden in the cleft of His rock. Savoring of His approval. What of those abroad today who are lonely and miserable! Looking for someone, anyone to [...]

This Bleak Clouds Will Give Way to an Enduring Light

Entering high school (secondary school), my admission was sent to Queens college, Yaba, an all girls school. This because the person in charge of admissions made a mistake and wrote Uchechi instead of Uchechukwu. They both mean the same thing "The heart of God" but the former refers to a girl.  This delayed my start. It was difficult to stay home while others were in school because of someone's mistake. I was sent to an underfunded seminary to pass the time. It was easy then to believe that God did not like me. Maybe He had singled me out for punishment because I took $5 from my dad's pocket without telling him last year. Graduating from King's college years later, I could only thank God [...]

How To Call For God’s Presence

I got the privilege of working with Isaac Hughes on a campus Christian concert many years ago. Isaac is a person of influence who got things done. I asked Isaac how he came to Christ and he narrated how he was brought up in a Christian home, but backslid. He came back to God by listening to praise and worship music one day. That's it. No preaching, no reading, just music. He said he felt the presence of the holy spirit mightily in that moment, rededicated his life to Christ and has not looked back since. You see now why I include music with my books? How I Recapture God's Presence Let me tell you my secret to recapturing God's presence around me. I simply play [...]

Thank God for Uindy!

I sat lonely on my mattress, hands over my face and shoulders drooped as I considered my future, or lack of it. Here I was, 17 years old, a recent high school graduate with no prospect to pursue higher learning. I did not take the Joint Administrations and Matriculation Board (JAMB) exam because I believed God had called me preach His word around the world.  So it made for a sad story when the schools I applied to responded asking me to pay $17,000 a year. Where on earth was I going to get that kind of money from? Sound familiar? For you, it's where do I get the capital to start my business? Stay with me.   An Email That Changed it All [...]

Have You Started Your Own Business Yet?

In 2015, while visiting a Church in Nairobi Kenya, I heard a not-so-usual call to action. The speaker had just asked the congregation: "Have you started your business yet, or are you in the process of starting one"? I learned this question was asked of the congregants every Sunday. Yes, there was the call for salvation and the call to join the prayer line for broken bodies to be healed. But this was a call to enterprise, to resourcefulness and to improvisation. Money is mentioned about 140 times in the Bible. Not so you fall in love with it, but so that you apply wisdom in its attainment, utility and in benevolence.   You Can't Get Rich on a Salary I write to inspire you to start your own business. [...]

Why Another Responsibility?

At the time my daughter Esther was born, I thought I was doing everything right. I faithfully showed up daily to the same job at the local hospital. A job I got upon graduation from University. I did more than was required of me but my salary stayed the same. It seemed high at the time I took the job, but with a wife and 2 children to support, the salary had fallen grossly inadequate. To compound matters, the hospital sent me huge bills for Esther's delivery. So in earnest, one hand was giving, and the other hand was taking away. I don't blame them. You will agree with me that it's hard for companies to give a raise. Why? Your guess is as good as mine. [...]

Why I’m I wrongfully Accused?

A friend Anslem, sent me an email asking why he is always accused. His question reminds me of a statement made by former US presidential candidate Ben Carson days before he exited the race. "Someone attack me please". Ben was languishing badly in the polls. As a result, no one wanted to accuse him during a debate. That's what happens when you are becoming a no factor. You get no accusation. Those that are down and out get no attacks. So it is in the spiritual world. Satan is not called the accuser of the brethren for nothing. You are Accused For a Reason The disciples rejoiced when they had been beaten, counting it joy that they had suffered shame for Jesus Christ. They had been accused of [...]
