#LyricalMonday – Slain, Yet Alive

Bishop David Oyedepo said during the #SLC2015 that “A Lion doesn’t CRY, he ROARS – carrying dominion everywhere he goes. It takes a Lion-heart to have a Lion-share!”

Today, I’m reminded of another Lion (the original one) who plays dual parts depending on who He is meeting with or the purpose He wants to achieve. I know some of you have met Him or His other nature, but allow me to re-introduce to you, the Lion and the Lamb – Jesus! The One who knows when to ROAR and when to lay down His life for Love! And I’m loving every aspect of His being.

Interview – Frances Kelvin Otung

Lucile reblog this, but I thought to share it so others outside her scope could read. Thanks Lucile for being such a sweet friend.


We’re joined today by Frances Kelvin Otung. Read her beautiful words below.


Please tell us a bit about yourself.

The last time I checked, I’m human with my own peculiarities, ‘fetishes’, ‘craze’ and cravings. Beyond that which makes me human, I’m supernatural with a love of and for books. Beautifully bonded journals beckon on me to caress their pages with my ink and breathe life into them; the thoughts on my mind seeking escape find solace in the words I’m able to write down. Sometimes, I’m lost for words, yet these are the experiences I desire to share with people (like or not-like me). Simply put, I love Love, Life (with all its packages) and Laughter!

A mother to two awesome children (whom I call Heritage), one teaches me how to sound my words (she’s going to be 7 years old in a couple of weeks) and the other gives…

#Writer’s Quote Wednesday

Today in our Spirit-Life Conference themed “The Next Level”, I heard a quote from my Pastor, Paul Adefarasin. I decided to check it out. Wow! I got the whole deal and it is mind-blowing.

Writer's Quote Wednesday_230915 We always pray for the rain, when it’s hot. We pray for the rain when we feel there’s draught. We pray for the rain when we need the seeds we have sown to grow. But we do not prepare for the mud that comes with it. I always say that “it is okay to pray for Success but its price is far too great.” Most of us aren’t ready for the price that comes with it.

So writer, you pray for inspiration, are you ready to run with the dream regardless of the mud? Are you ready to paint the skies and make something beautiful out of the dark that surrounds you? Denzel says, he’d be more frightened by not using whatever abilities he has been given and by procrastination. You have been given several abilities and talents, use it! Maximise everything within your sphere, don’t let that moment slip by. Let it scare you that some lives are going untouched, whilst you remain in a state of indecision.

Let’s go to WQW and see what other writers did to get inspired. By the way, Colleen is waiting 🙂

#LyricalMonday – My Broken Pieces

Have you ever had something dear to you fall out of your hand and break into a thousand pieces which made it practically impossible to glue back?
I have!
It was my heart…
I know a lot of ladies and men can identify with this, but there’s a solution to it. And that’s what “My Broken Pieces” is all about …the best part ❤

#Writer’s Quote Wednesday

Okay, WQW is here again today and Colleen put me in a slightly tight corner by requesting that we celebrate the Blood Moon. I tried reading up on it, but wasn’t sure. All I know is it has to do with an eclipse. I will try to look out for it by Sept 27- 28th.

So for today’s quote I checked up the Bible and saw a beautiful quote which formed part of the prayers that Moses said on the tribe of Israel. I discussed with Pst C on noticing that prayers were said to the children of Israel twice by their Father Jacob (Israel) and also by Moses. She made me understand there were Patriarchal and Prophetic blessings. Jacob blessed them as his sons, but Moses blessed them as tribes. In most cases, the latter over-rules the former and to me that was cool, as in this case, Reuben (for instance) was cursed under the Patriarchal blessing.

Writer's Quote Wednesday_160915Well, I won’t go preaching on you today but urge you to know that whether you are under the Sun or the Moon, each has PRECIOUS things to offer. Tap into your imagination and let the heat inspire you or the shadows the Moon draws up motivate you to write better…and come up with something precious!

If you still need more inspiration, then off to Colleen’s you go!

Happy 2nd anniversary to me yesterday on WordPress and I didn’t even realise it. I’m grateful for the views, the numbers, the ability to still write regardless of how I felt. Beyond that, I am overwhelmed by the friends I have made, the lives I have connected with and impacted (I hope) and the cultures I’ve been part of and the thrills they have given me.

Thank you Team WordPress …you Rock!

Here’s to more sweet years ahead with friends and readers and new ones. Let’s do this right!
