WHEN YOU BADLY WANT GROWTH





You may have noticed that your rhythm seems truncated lately.

Perhaps you used to feel full in your spirit, know exactly what to do or say when an occasion arises and do just that; but now, you are often unsure about the next step to take and can't completely shake off the sad feeling that comes with not making visible progress in the things that matter most to you.

While that may be an indication that you are dealing with a burn out, the issue is not always about dissipated energy, it sometimes is about a disconnection in your Spirit.

This disconnection is caused by a drop in our love level towards God and His presence.


Every time our love level drops, the weight of this world and the thorns of our private weaknesses, choke joy and peace off our hearts. This in turn leads to being stucked.


Read: Stucked in a rut?


Like Paul prayed for the church in Philippi as seen in Phillippians 1 verse 9 to 11,  we should pray for ourselves thus,

🔻Lord cause my love for you and your presence to overflow more and more in every situation and season.

This is because your love for God will bring you into a rich revelation of spiritual insight into all things.  




Here is how it works; Your heart is filled with much love for God such that you press into Him in the place of intimacy, Your heart fills with awe for Him by the encounters/experiences He wills into your life. He begins to reveal things to you. Psalms 25:14, "The secret of the LORD is for those who fear Him, And He will make them know His covenant." (NASB)

We can't possibly have this rich revelation of spiritual insight into all things and fail at things, be stucked or retrogress.

Apostle Paul says it better in verses 10 and 11,

This (insight produced by love for God) will enable you to

📌Choose the most excellent way of all

📌Become pure and without offense until the unveiling of Christ.

📌Be filled completely with the fruits of righteousness that are found in Jesus, the Anointed One—bringing great praise and glory to God! (TPT)

Does it look like you are not making much significant progress? Don't look too far,  lest you get offended with God and men. Look inwards; your love level towards God and His presence needs a radical improvement.


Growth is first on the inside, before it is on the outside. The most important thing you badly need to grow is your love for God and His presence. Go ahead and ask Him to increase your love towards Him.


Committed to your fulfilment

GOD IS KIND : The hurt of dissapointment

Sometimes you can't even ask why. Perhaps because you know everything doesn't quite lie in God's hands. Yet when it comes to things you have absolutely no control over, you are tempted to think it's in His hands. Even at that, you still can't ask why. Well maybe you can, but I can't.  I have had a good dose of pain and disappointment enough to separate my ideology of God from life's occurrences. Before life started giving me rude shocks, I used to think God will always protect me by preventing pain. As I grew older and met with more battles, I learnt to accept the part of God's protection which delivers  me from pain well after I have felt its excruciating bite and I came to this conclusion; God is and is forever kind. The earth is fallen; I may not be exempted from all its ugliness, but God will always be kind enough to deliver me if He doesn't prevent it.   By the time you will be reading this, I would have shared my testimony. While I hop

GOD IS KIND: The emptiness of hope

Read part 1 here  In Lagos, I fell ill as soon as I landed. The city is crazy. The traffic is unholy and the carbon monoxide infested air is an extension of hell. I didn't want to get back on that road to any hospital so we got a qualified nurse to come treat me at home.  The Nurse said she couldn't treat me except I did a pregnancy test alongside malaria test. Both came out positive. I was glad that the sickness wasn't Lagos madness inspired. My baby must have wanted to notify me since I refused to take a second look. Unfortunately, she used one of those quinine brands  in attempt to protect the baby. She sadly didn't check with me first.  I became miserable from all the itching like one who hugged devil's beans. I tried to rest as much as I could and thoroughly enjoyed both my family and ministry itinerary while being pampered like an egg. I preached passionately at the event I was invited to. I talked about loving God and serving him devotedly even when disa

GOD IS KIND: The Courage of patience

Read part 2 here It was a beautiful morning and yours truly was still bleeding.  I just got done making breakfast and was about to set the table when I felt an extra weight down there. I left the kitchen, washed my hands and sent it below while squatting. Men and brethren, see who fell off me.  The 1cm Fibroid they said I should be operated for A better view of the monster My husband and I gave thanks . God had delivered me early. I took these photos as proofs of his kindness and as reminders that He is still with and for me, regardless.  I became hopeful and patiently waited to conceive another. I can't deny  that I had several moments of sadness and weeping. My husband who wasn't moved by the situation became worried for my worry. He bought me things, took me out regularly and kept asking what he could do to make me happy. While I appreciated his efforts, they weren't enough to comfort my grieving soul. I had many, many days of sadness.   January went by, so did February.
