Hi everyone.

Let me start by apologizing (again) for my absence and unserious attitude towards the blog. I have a confession to make. I have been feeling quite conflicted on what my blog is about. I thought I had it all under control when I wanted to be self-hosted however, I now realize I don’t. For some reasons, I feel caged, restricted and unmotivated to put up something. I know my blog is a faith blog

“TV, movies, games and books are much like food – for your mind and soul”

-Elaine Shpungin

Often times, I’d hear “be careful what you listen to and watch”, “be careful what your mind feeds on”. I knew it was true that what you listen to or watch could have effect on your mind but I never took it to heart.

I have heard that watching violent movies can make you violent or listening to music about violence, drugs, music that degrade women and even those that use profanity can have a negative effect on you. Always, I’d wonder how that is even possible. You know yourself, you know you can’t be violent, you know you respect women

ViewPoint: Compromise; Good or Bad?

“Compromise is not about losing. It is about deciding that the other person has just as much right to be happy with the end result as you do”

-Donna Martini

Compromise according to the Oxford dictionary is defined in two ways. One is “An agreement or settlement of a dispute that is reached by each side making concessions”. The second is “The expedient acceptance of standards that are lower than is desirable”. The first definition talks about both sides making

Guilt, Guilty

Guilt is a major emotion that can throw one off balance. One moment, you are okay, the next, you feel so bad. Sometimes guilt comes with feelings of unworthiness and self-punishment. Everyone has felt guilty one way or the other. It’s part of the thing that makes us human.

According to Wikipedia, “Guilt is a cognitive or an emotional experience that occurs when a person believes or realizes—accurately or not—that he or she has compromised his or her own standards of conduct or has violated a universal moral standard and bears significant

A Guide to Minimalist Packing: How to Pack Light for Travels

I am not a fan of traveling for long hours but there’s one thing that certainly makes it worse for me and that is when I have lots of luggage. I must confess I tend to over pack because in my head I get this “what if I need this?” However having to carry more than one luggage can be a burden because you can’t exactly be on the go (for example at the airport, you have to wait for your checked in bags instead of moving on); it gets awkward when

Faith and fear, the royal deviant

Faith and fear is something that goes hand in hand. It’s either you are living in faith or you are living in fear.

Have you ever expected something to happen and you know it’ll happen because you have calculated how it could happen and probably there’s still time? Is that faith or logical reasoning? Ok, let me explain more, perhaps

Liberty, Liberty in Christ

Often times, I hear people say they are not ready to give their lives to Christ because it means their lifestyle would change and that would be boring. That’s true, your lifestyle would definitely have to change but there is liberty in Christ.

When people are told to give their lives to Christ, they do that out of fear, the fear of going to hell if they don’t change their ways. Sometimes this fear makes them so much bound to obeying the laws of God by their own strength and

God remains God, christian blog

Once upon a time, I was mad at God. A lot was happening at that period, I felt like all my problems were drowning me and God just stood there looking at me. He couldn’t even help me. I wasn’t asking for too much. What I asked for was a “need” and not even a “want”, yet no answer, nothing. I was so angry, I almost did not care anymore. I lost interest in reading my b

When Overwhelmed with insecurities, Odinakachukwu Ndukwe

We sometimes make the statement “I don’t care what people say about me” and the likes but is that true? I myself have said that often and even did a post on it. There’s no doubt that saying such helps and is liberating, it actually did help me. However, the truth is we care about what people say. Let’s admit it. What we actually do is we try as much as possible to not make what people think about us matter or get to us.
