THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 44)

There are, at least, three virtues we need for our life’s race. Vision, purpose and patience. Vision will give us the impetus to get started. Purpose will see us through to the end. Patience will take care of everything in-between. Simplistic, yes, but true. There is a measure of excitement that marks the beginning of […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 33)

When you find a cause that is much bigger than you, a reason to run that reaches beyond today, a future reward that eclipses present challenges, you are likely to give your all to its pursuit. Young David, moments before taking on Goliath, asked the question: Is there not a cause? We all, on very […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 30)

Yesterday was meant to be the day when Nigerians voted for the next Nigerian President. The choice before the nation included the incumbent President and more than 70 others – well, over 70 on paper; perhaps just one or two feasible candidates in reality. I say “meant to be” because the elections were not held […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 26)

The other day, I got me one of these smart, techy wristbands. The cute little thing could tell the time, track my steps, display how much distance I have covered in a day and measure my heart pulse. It can even tell me how much calories I burn each day and monitor my sleep each […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 16)

I want to highlight, in this post, a matter we seldom talk about in our communities and churches: mental health. This is a big issue that only receives little attention. It affects more people than we realize. It is a bomb that is ticking over my generation. Let me explain. In my book, THE SHIFT […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 10)

The admonition to run the race of our lives with perseverance draws inspiration from the success stories of Hebrews 11 faith heroes. It also looks intently at how Jesus fulfilled HIS earthly mission. Jesus had a big WHY for enduring the cross. Perhaps we can find our WHY in His WHY. What was the joy […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 9)

In the ancient Grecian games, winners of athletic EVENTS received crowns made from olive branches, freshly plucked from the temple of Zeus, in Olympia. Athletes from far and wide trained hard and competed fiercely for these wreaths and the honour that accompanied them. Winning was a big deal. Paul also ran his race with an […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 3)

The course before each of us is not a short, straight-line track, set on an easy, plain ground. No. The race of life is run on a long, bendy, twist-and-turn, hilly, obstacle-ridden terrain that requires watchfulness, tenacity, determination and endurance. It is said, “Life is a marathon, not a sprint,” and I believe this is […]
