Day 5- Assess God’s Faithfulness

Bible Reading: Lamentations 3:1-26 Have you ever been in one of those situations where it was hard to backtrack? Maybe you got in a ‘You said that-No I didn’t say that-Yes you said that’ kind of tussle with a friend. Then your friend remembers that the conversation in reference was over a chat and decides to scroll it out. Now you’re getting a bit nervous. Maybe I should have said, I really think that I said that. The chat can’t…

Day 4 – Assess Your Joy

Bible Reading: Nehemiah 8:1-12 I remember the first time I rode a rollercoaster. The moment before the ride was filled with anticipation, excitement and happiness.

Almost every Nigerian child can relate (bicycles, bicycles, bicycles). No matter how old you are, it can be very heartbreaking to long for,…

Day 1 – Assess Yourself

Bible Reading: James 1:19-27, 2 Corinthians 13:5-10 You’ve probably walked past some people before, and based on their appearance, you had to conclude that they don’t own a mirror in their house. Going to University and living among many other guys was very eye-opening in many ways. Some revelations were simple things like ways to get things done; while others were a bit more complicated. One of my big revelations as a new undergraduate was that a Compact Disc (CD)…
