My Work Don't Matter, He Loved Me First.

Welcome to my worship corner Tribe! It's been a minute with worship corner.  So how have you been keeping your faith strong and going? Well for me I have been a bit on and off (and no, that isn't why we paused on "my worship corner). While going on and off I have had cause to ask all the "whys" and "why me", and the responses have always remained and focused on how much God's love is unending and unfailing.  The truth is, sometimes we get overwhelmed by circumstances around us and begin to think "does God even love me? Does He see me? If He does sees me, why will He  allow me to go through all this pain, even after all my labour of love?" No sir! His love for us is not and cannot be measured by anything, not even our work. If this wasn't so probably would have waited till we were being born, matured enough to do all the work that is required or that can be quitted to His love. "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that

Hey Hey Hey! Happy New week Tribe! It's been a minute here I know, well Let's just say I've been having a hangover since our last blog post. Thank you all for your kind words and prayers for Matana and Matilda . So, how are you all doing? I trust you are well, and that life is happening in your favour? Well, even if it is not, you are alive and that is all that matters because "he that has life has hope".  I was going through my vision board recently to see how the year is going and also restrategize where there's need to, especially when my five years old asked what I wanted to become in the future when I grow up. That question was a good prompt or should I say a reminder to check and evaluate how well my baby steps or giant stride towards achieving my goals were going. Thankfully, there is progress, and that is all that matters. Still, in my conversations with the little madam, we were watching a children's program the other day and the narrator's n

In The Beginning. How My Journey Started

I had just missed my period that month. Truth is that I wasn't really checking or should I say, waiting for it to be missed, ok, maybe a little.  I was married, slightly over a year, although it was a deliberate act to have one year of enjoyment. After our first wedding anniversary, I realized I had Phantom pregnancy and I had to do a lot of detoxes and some medical procedures to get over that. So yeah, I was waiting a bit for my period to be missed.  Even though I was two months Plus gone, the moment I did a pregnancy test and it was confirmed positive, the morning sickness started. Like where did you hide before now!!! Are we just going to be throwing up all day? And So my journey to motherhood began. It was first mixed feelings and then an unexplainable joy for me.  first I thought, how will a fragile me be able to carry a baby inside of me till full term and then proceed to delivery. Please don't blame me, I used to be so fragile en, even carrying my chairman's gbola wa

On Relationships And Letting Go

Happy New week Tribe! I trust the month is going on smoothly.  It is still our season of growth, and we are dancing through April as we stay through in the place of growth. Talking about growth, I've had the privilege of being nurtured and groomed with teachings and training by the most amazing humans and team ever. Most of these I refer to here are mostly on spiritual grounds, and this has been my most valuable tool for growth.  So recently, I got a shocker when some people pulled out of an association I belonged to. It was as if I was hit by a heavy-duty truck. Although not directly involved in the leadership myself, but just merely sitting to listen to their teaching and sharing life experiences in helping others grow was a blessing, and they, having to leave was a big blow.  Now, this got me thinking, why do people leave?  Ok, let me rephrase this, why do people leave their Christian associations? I don't mean leaving to go start a different ministry as a result of a divin

THE BLESSING OF A CHILD... The spice to my life

"Dr. Hassan I am ready when you are, but first I need to do a photoshoot" Those were my exact words as I settled on the sofa with my 4kg stomach in front of my doctor on that hot Wednesday afternoon in Akodo General Hospital.  As I  handed her the scan result, she hurriedly put on her glasses to scan through the sheet, but not before peeping through her lens to give me one "professor kind of look"  "And what exactly is photoshoot en Pepper?" She asked  I burst into laughter, clapped my two hands, and placed them just below my breast, using my massive stomach as good support.   "Ha! Doc, who on earth doesn't know what a photoshoot is? It is simply taking pictures. Yes, I want to take pictures with my baby bump and splash it all over social media and for memory sakes too"  "You see why I call you Pepper" she replied,  "you know all the happenings around town. me I am old school jor"  "Yes o, Doc you are first-grade old-

Happy Easter Tribe,  I hope your Easter celebration is going on well.  Yes, we are still celebrating the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and today being Easter Monday. The Easter season to me is the best time in a man's life, especially for a believer.  It is a time when you remember the love of God in its full form.  “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life".  John 3:16 (NLT) It is not enough to celebrate the death of Jesus only but to appropriate His resurrection to our salvation.  The death of Christ on the cross is an opportunity for a new life, hope, and change.  There was a reason why He had to come and for like He did, and the only reason was love. "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."  Romans 5:8 (KJV) We must seize the moment and make the best of this season. That the death of Jesus will have m

Hehehehe!  This is exactly how I came on The Seme Tribe today. Like, hello! Anybody home? Or have my village people closed down the Tribe? Lol, I am laughing so hard inside me as I type this. Here I am at midnight, lying on my bedroom floor almost in a ghost posture for the fear of waking up my two years old because I cannot afford to play the "midnight nanny" role tonight. No thank you! I choose the "floor" offer. Wondering why I am laughing?  It's been such a long time here, and I'm here asking myself, "who does that? Who leaves her Tribe and just disappears for so long without a word?". Well, only Seme can and only Seme does that. Lol Then, I open my draft to see if maybe I could Scribble something for the new month and my eyes caught the site impressions. Boy! You all have been here all along even while I was away. I mean my numbers greatly increased even without a new post. I don't know who you all are but I want to hug you and just whispe
