‘’Life doesn’t get easier or more forgiving, we get stronger and more resilient’’…Steve Maraboli Life is commonly said to be unfair and thus the promise for which we should we consider the diverse struggles people go through for survival, the exceeding effort and tenacity put into becoming a success compared with the number who eventually “make it” and hopefully make lasting impacts in their generation. The truth is, life won’t seem unfair because the figures don’t add up and the events won’t tally. We all can relate to this but the most......

Today I experienced something new, something great, an experience I have never pictured being a part of. It was an amazing adventure, I saw life from another angle and what it felt like to have very little and yet be much. Initially, I displayed reluctance when was asked to join the team for today’s mobile church, as I didn’t like the idea of going to the streets, messing up my carefully pressed outfit and my well polished shoes and the general idea of leaving the comfort of our cozy church. Mowe bus-stop......

The Prayer Ride

Waking up in the morning to pray, have a quiet time with God, seek his face about the day had always been a big challenge for the past few years. It has been one excuse or another. Back in school, it was either the morning lecture rush or the early morning assignment submissions. Now that I’m a grown up with a job, things seem to be getting worse. I always spend the morning saying my routine short prayers like “thank you father for this morning, my day is in your hands; bless......

The Lover Man

It was just a day… but not any another ordinary day. Peter could have sworn the nightmare he had was real notwithstanding the calm in the dark room he had tucked himself into. He tried to lift himself and felt the sharp bruises over his left shoulder. “John, James… are you there?” His question echoed into the dark of the room and no reply came through. The room seemed different, not the usual big cinnamon tree they all slept in the past days away from the Master’s tree. He became perplexed. Could......

Beyond Limitations - Cobhams Asuquo

“Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.” There is a common saying that when life gives you lemons, make lemonade out of it; when life throws you a seed, grow a tree out of it. One cannot continue to make excuses for his/her failure and hope to suddenly wake up to a net worth of $2 billion. Today’s aspirant represents hope, determination and light to youths and even adults in every cadre of life. Quickly and gradually transforming to......

Opened ears and hearts

Picture your uncle who offered you a new Apple macbook laptop making good his word today, the opposite is exam day for most students… I, not exempted. Woke up to a cold harmattan morning 30mins before the 9am paper and met a few of my mates arguing on the AOC (area of concentration) which the course teacher had given viz a viz the correct answers to go with the questions. Snap! It was a lot like I relived the slap my dad gave me when I returned home last semester with my......

Underdogged

Our Aspire story takes the weirdest of studies in portraying one of life’s most lessons in perserverance, teamspirit, underdog positivity and hardwork. Most of us can relate to certain instances when lots are drawn and every logical and mathematical postulation and calculation falls into odds for us. Bringing the story home, you sometimes hear terms like “Even if God would come down, you can’t just make it, you can’t pass, you can’t get the contract, no one will marry you”; Yes, those times when we are written off. Notwithstanding, our references reflects......

Overcoming Doubt

The theatrical nuances of schooling influences every young school leaver, and I wasn’t of any exception. Most of out final year discussions went from a potential great job, Chevron offer, and one net-breaking career opportunity Trust me, I’m a believer; a faith-driving and executing one. I grew up in the Lord and have had a wonderful experience of his manifold blessing, I dare say – everything I laid my hands on prospers. So school finished, “Pali” handed over, and God did it, a honor-filled certificate; and it’s so easy to connect those......

Yearning for the Supernatural

Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence, (Isaiah. 64:1(KJV)) The above bible verse captures the yearning of a man for God, he wanted God so much that he requested God to “rend” the heavens to come down. He was simply desperate for God, he yearned for Him. Why was he so desperate for God? 1. He found himself in a desperate situation. 2. He understood and was convinced of what God can do. He said “……that the mountains......
