New Seasons Are Here Again

Leave a Comment
Ephesians 3:20 Now to Him who is able to (carry out His purpose and ) do superabundantly more than we dare ask or think (infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes or dreams) according to His power that is at work within us……. Isaiah 43:18,19 Do not remember the former things, or ponder the things of the past. Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing, now it will spring forth, will you not be aware of it…… New Seasons in Life We all know that times have been tough. For my family they have been trying times. The Lord has definitely been with us, that I must add. There is something about the Lord’s testing fire. It hurts but not enough to doubt His presence, love

The Strong Family-Part One

Leave a Comment
Family, I have come to understand, is God’s way of blessing us. It was never His intention for people to be alone. From the onset He thought “It is not good that man should be alone”. He always intended that we have company, that we operate in families and communities. So He decided, “I will make him a helper comparable to him” Genesis 2:18. And that introduced the phenomenon called marriage from which the family emerges. Everything else took off from there. That is why He says that “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favour from the Lord” Proverbs 18:22. His intention was to bless mankind. He designed the family as the basic unit of all society. Strong families build strong communities which

MY TAKE ON MARRIAGE I am alarmed by the husband and wife stories I hear. Marriage has become a big anti climax to many couples. Women seem to be the worse for it, which is why I am concerned. I make it my  business to say the same things again and again, just for the sake of a few who may ‘catch’ it and run with it. The truth is that marriage requires wisdom, Godly wisdom to succeed.  I am committed to sharing this Godly wisdom, so we can have healthier marriages. I believe that enjoying marriage depends solely on understanding the who, how, what and why of it. Who thought up the concept of Marriage? How did He bring it into existence? What did he have in

2018 From My Eyes

Leave a Comment
Another year has rolled in, 2018 at last. If I had my way, I would make 2017 disappear into oblivion, like it never happened. It was quite a year. I heard a man of God who brought my desire for 2018 into perspective for me. Pastor Lemuel George described it as a year when the Chronus of time would collide with the God’s Kairos moment to bring new seasons and dispensations to birth. Is that not something to look forward to? I am looking at Dove Eyes and all I can see are new horizons, more influence, more impact. We have so much more to look forward to. This year our focus will be on empowering women with skills to build strong families and yet hold their heads

Love – so amazing

Leave a Comment
One of the things that concern us on Dove Eyes is Marriage. For us it is a big deal. We believe that it is of God and the true bedrock of society. When marriages fail, families fragment and it all falls back to society. We want our voice to be stronger and louder in this area, hence the idea to host a Valentine dinner. This dinner provides a platform for couples to engage intentionally for a couple of hours. Come and rekindle the fire of your love. Get tickets for you and your spouse or as gifts for couples you know will benefit from an evening like this. Call 08032012458 to make enquiries and book your tickets

While You wait

Leave a Comment
One of the things I am very passionate about is helping young women find their way around getting married. I am concerned with what happens before the guy comes along. It is important that the lady is in control of herself-her emotions, her desires, her choices and responses so that she can attract and keep the right kind of man. I believe that if she gets this bit right, what happens after the knot is tied becomes a lot easier and there are higher chances of success in marriage. young african woman thinking isolated on white background While she waits for Mr Right to come along, what does she need to do to make life enjoyable. She is somewhere between the ages of 22 and 35 or more,

Discovering Purpose, My Life Story

Leave a Comment
Thinking about life, i will simply say that life has a way of drawing your attention. When things happen you begin to make decisions based on the understanding and knowledge you have, your experiences, your values, your faith. As it all works together, you discover purpose. As you make more discoveries about life, you make more decisions and that is how purpose is lived out. If I was to summarise, I must say that the more you live your life in God, the more your chances of living a life of purpose. How did it all start for me? My first port of call was discovering God Himself. I discovered that I could find God for myself, have a personal relationship with Him and live by faith towards

Stop the Fights-Resolving Conflict Between Couple

Leave a Comment
‘I now pronounce you man and wife. You may now kiss the bride’. That sentence is the one we all hold our breaths for at every wedding ceremony. The couple usually would break out in smiles as the guy proudly kisses his new bride. Fast forward …………three years later, the same people are in divorce courts for irreconcilable differences. What went wrong? Why were they unable to hold it together? Was the love not real? Does love die? They were simply unable to manage their differences. That couples will have differences is not in doubt. Disagreement between spouses is inevitable. However, the way we manage them is crucial. We don’t want our disagreements to end up in violence or what I call a state of anarchy, where everything

Unleashing the Power of Imagination in 2016

Leave a Comment
I am still so excited about this year 2016, even though we are now in February. I can no longer call this a new year. That means we need to get on with the year. At this point we should be working our aspirations and dreams for the year. I asked myself how do we do that and I had heard a sermon by Pade Durotoye, Unleashing the Power of Imagination in 2016. This is my summary of the things he said that day. I think this is another way of saying live by faith because faith and the imagination walk side by side. How do we unleash the power of our imagination? How do we unleash this power in our lives to arrive at the lives we

Soaring High in 2016

Leave a Comment
I am particularly excited about 2016. It promises to be a great and flourishing year especially for people of faith. It is a defining year for us despite the issues we have as a nation and the looming predictions. We will rise up to who are as people of faith. We walk not by sight but by faith. We see the things that are not as though they are. So even though the predictions make sense, we will look above them and draw down solutions. We must not operate in fear and despair, because there is a lifting up even though it seems like there is a casting down. We must trust God enough to live our best most daring lives, the lives we truly want to live

Thankful, Grateful, God is Good

The Word Psalm 103:1-2 1 BLESS (AFFECTIONATELY, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul; and all that is [deepest] within me, bless His holy name! 2 Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul, and forget not [one of] all His benefits– The Message December is here again-the last month of the year 2015. My thanksgiving and gratitude mode has been activated. I look around me and despite all the bad news around us I still feel it is such a privilege to be alive today. I am not taking being alive for granted. For me, it does not matter what the circumstances are-good or bad. All I know is that being alive gives me the opportunity to hope for a better tomorrow. And that is the

Faith As I See It

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. When I got born again so many years ago, Faith was such a fascinating phenomenon. It seemed so simple yet so difficult.  It’s easy to listen to a sermon on faith. It is even exciting. However, when you have to faith healing from a terminal disease or your rent is due tomorrow and you are in faith or you need an opportunity that a million other people also want, then you understand why faith is not easy. I could not take my time to understand faith. I learnt it on the job. I did not have the luxury of being able to

Building Confidence to Bring Down Our Giants

1 Samuel 17:12-50 (The Message Bible) Enter David. He was the son of Jesse the Ephrathite from Bethlehem in Judah. Jesse, the father of eight sons, was himself too old to join Saul’s army. Jesse’s three oldest sons had followed Saul to war. The names of the three sons who had joined up with Saul were Eliab, the firstborn; next, Abinadab; and third, Shammah. David was the youngest son. While his three oldest brothers went to war with Saul, David went back and forth from attending to Saul to tending his father’s sheep in Bethlehem……….

Resilience, the Key to Success in Life.

I am no longer as long as I used to be. I have decided that my life will be purposeful and on target. IF I decide to achieve something, then I must achieve it. If I have taken the time to pray and understand it then I will not allow anything stand in my way, including myself. I need to be resilient and persevering to get to my promised land. So what do we need to do to become resilient people of faith? First, we must have assurance in our hearts that we are not alone. Remember as kids how we were more confident in facing opponents when we had our big brothers with us. That is what I am talking about. We are never alone as people

It’s been a wonderful 2014 and we have all launched into 2015. 2015 is filled with a lot of expectations, fears and faith. Faith will be ignited, rekindled, or destroyed; it all boils down to what you want to take out of 2015. I am so excited about this year 2015. It promises to be a great and flourishing year especially for people of faith. I know someone will wonder what I am talking about. Oil prices are crashing, the Naira is being devalued, and our economic indices have not   looked so bad in a long time. There all sorts of predictions going around about Nigeria at the moment.

My Heart

  My Heart The Word Matthew 6: 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. The Message In recent times, my prayer times have been for God to purge my heart and make it truly His. I have often wondered how people who love the Lord can go in certain totally ungodly paths. I realized their hearts were the culprits. We can love God but harbor thoughts, desires and plans that are not in His will for our lives. When they take up or occupy our hearts, they become treasures we cannot walk away from. I began to search my heart recently when I heard all kinds of things going on in the body of Christ. I realized that once you feel entitled to
