How are you feeling today? Have you ever just had a time where your heart was full of fear, distress, or worry?
King David had this happen, too, and you’re not alone– 18.1% of people in the United States alone suffer from anxiety and depression (which is 40 million adults a year!). This is a real illness and disease, and people everywhere are trying to get rid of it. Continue reading
While Ecuador has nothing to do with Nigeria, I have ties to those in Ecuador. There have been major protests over fuel prices in Quito, Ecuador that, unfortunately, have turned violent.
Please pray with me over those in Ecuador, that peace would be found soon and that no one else would be affected by it’s violence!
I haven’t been truly moved by a song in a long time. But, as I was cruising through Soundcloud listening to U2, I thought, “Let’s listen to Bloody Sunday.” Continue reading
What with all of the political scandal going on– especially in the US—it is hard not to get discouraged and angry. The Bible calls this “fretting.” Continue reading
“For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers…” (1 Peter 3:12a)
Tonight, let’s just thank our Lord Jesus for all that He is doing and will do. What a mighty God we serve!
If you are in the middle of hearing a “wait” or a “no” from the Lord, trust that He is still good, and still hears you.
With Love, in Christ,
Last night, I came across a show called “Bob ❤ Abishola.” In the show, a man named Bob goes to a hospital, and while there, has a nurse who is a Nigerian immigrant named Abishola take care of him. He falls for Abishola—and that’s all I’ve watched so far 😊
This is way out of the ordinary for American TV, and I am excited to see how they portray Abishola and her Nigerian immigrant family. I wonder why they chose Nigeria; it will be interesting to find out. I pray that it actually sheds light on Nigeria and what is going on there, and that as the show portrays Nigerians, they would not just be seen as “another country from corrupt Africa.” Those in Nigeria are more than statistics—they are people, and I hope that this show allows watchers to see that.
THOSE IN NIGERIA ARE MORE THAN STATISTICS—THEY ARE PEOPLE.
Please pray with me, that this show is 1) culturally correct, 2) puts Nigerians in a good light, and 3) helps shed light on what is actually going on in Nigeria. Thank you, guys!
You can find “Bob ❤ Abishola” on CBS at 8:30pm.
(I was not sponsored or asked in any way to highlight this show. I’m just excited about it!!!)
