• The Crucifix; Not Death, But Love – @ItsGAMiE

    A few days ago, i randomly asked about the symbolism of the cross that Jesus was nailed on where he died.  Logically, one wonders why the murder weapon that represents immense suffering and pain has gradually become a revered religious symbol. But then again, when we look at the significance of the actual death, we see the crucifix beyond being just a symbol of pain; we see the love that compelled Jesus to go through the crucifixion. And Gamie’s new video says it all. You know he’s my favorite rapper yeah? Good! so, take a look!

  • Finding Love, Staying Loved & Giving Love

    I have always been infatuated with the idea of love. The grand romantic gestures described in novels and watched in Hollywood romantic comedies and my own overactive imagination fuelled my idealism. When i was growing up, i was always falling in and out of love even when i had no idea what it meant to be loved or to love someone else. My encounter with Jesus taught me to view life differently but it is really my relationship with him that has changed my knowledge of what love really is. Whether it is romantic or otherwise. Relationship with Jesus showed me that i am already loved and taught me to…

  • He Chose Me! Can You Believe That?!

    “You were in a faraway country, but I reached out to you. I called you from that faraway place. I said, ‘You are my servant.’ I chose you, and I have not rejected you. ” – Isaiah 41:9 ERV This verse is the story of my life. For so long i didn’t know though and even now, i sometimes need reminders. These days, i find myself marvelling at how God could take an obscure small town girl raised by an average single parent, insecure, hurt, broken and abused, put all that together and create something and someone beautiful and extraordinary.

  • My Very First Fathers Day!

    I never liked fathers day. Not because I didn’t like fathers, but because every celebration of fathers day reminded me of the void in me that I’ve always tried to fill. It reminded me of the relationship i wish I had. Today is different though. For the very first time I really am celebrating fathers day. I’m celebrating my father without any wishful thinking or void in my heart because I have finally accepted the truth that I have always had a dad. I’ve been going through life listening to the devil’s lies that I have no father looking out for me. I lived all 32 years of my life…

  • I Didn’t Know What Love Looked Like…

    I didn’t know what a good man is supposed to look like or treat me because I didn’t have a dad to show me who a good man is. I grew up hearing stories about how my dad got my mum pregnant and left. So my earliest impressions of men were that they were not to be trusted. They’ll always leave. The more I heard tales about my rejection, heard tales of how my mother struggled to raise me alone as a single broke mom, heard how my grandmother had to take me from her to save us from starving, the more inferior and unloved I felt. I believed something…

  • Self-Love Is Not Skin Deep…

    There’s a lot that is being said about self-love these days it’s almost becoming ‘trendy’ or ‘woke’ to talk about self-love. but what really is self-love? It sounds like it’s self-explanatory enough when you look at it at face value. We read articles telling us all about loving ourselves, loving our bodies, pampering ourselves, taking trips alone, shopping, going to the spa, and generally giving ourselves a treat. These are all nice things to do but that’s not all self-love is all about. Self-Love is deeper than that. self-love is about knowing yourself well enough to accept who you really are with no ambiguities and masking and falling in love…

You are NOT a mistake. Your life is not a…

  • We Need Kisses & We Need Hugs….

    Relationships are important. God intends for us to have them; with him as well as with each other; that’s why he made us relational beings.  We all crave relationship in one form or the other. family relationships, friendships, companionships, and at the core of our being is the ultimate craving for a relationship with God. It might take a while for some people to get there, but eventually, they will realize that empty space can only be filled with relationship with God. Our relationship with other people is driven by 3 core drivers; and these drivers determine if we maintain a healthy relationship or if we mess it up. They…

  • Yes, You Can & You Should Pray For Bae!

    This is not really meant to be a ‘relationship or marriage coach’ kinda post. (Apologies in advance if it reads like that). I just really want to share about how important prayer is in our relationship with our partners. Whether married, engaged or dating, if you’re in love and romantically involved with someone, you cannot take prayer out of the relationship. Let me start by saying that if you do not have the confidence to bear down to talk to God about the person you’re with, you might want to check the foundations of that relationship and be honest with yourself if you should be with that person. See, God…

  • 3 Reasons Why You Keep Falling For The ‘Wrong’ Guys

    If you keep falling for the wrong guys and hooking up with men you’re not supposed to touch with a ten mile pole, it’s probably because you haven’t figured out that you just might be the problem. You haven’t gotten to know yourself. – If you have not taken out time to meet you, understand you, accept what makes you tick, what drives you, what pisses you off, what you love, who you are and what your values are, you’ll fall into the shadow of anyone around you and before you know it, you’ll adapt to any guy you’re currently dating. You’ll lose your individuality because you never knew enough…

  • Love Is Dead

    Love is dead and no one Is mourning. No one mourns because no one knows They see the flowers, we see the smiles, the soft whisper of sweet words and feel the sensual embrace of the lover. Gold, silver, pearls and rubies. All beautiful and shiny. Bright lights and starry eyes. Perfect smiles and perfect photos. They have been carried away by the lure of Eros. Love is dead and no one mourns. No one mourns because no one knows No one knows because the impostor is here. He says: Take it. Don’t give it Say it. You don’t have to mean it If you want it, go get it Have…

  • There’s No Such Thing As a Soul Mate!

    The philosophy of a “soul mate” has done far more harm than good in our society. First and foremost, it’s a concept that is rooted in ancient mythology. Story has it that the gods split human beings as a form of punishment for their pride. Since then, human beings have been on the search to find their “soul mate” in an attempt to reach completion once again. Ancient mythology declares that there is this unspoken knowledge—some sort of feeling a person experiences when they come face to face with their soul mate. It’s the idea that we’re half-full people waiting around for someone else to complete us. I don’t know…

  • About My Crush & Imaginary Date…

    Let me start by saying that there are no “deep spiritual lessons” that I want to share in this post. I just wanted to tell you about something that happened to me. Anyway, last year I saw a man and admired him from a distance. I observed the ease at which he went about his business, his obvious skill set and the intelligence that couldn’t help but show as he did what he did. All these I noticed and liked. But I had no conversation with him despite the fact that I was quite attracted. He had this “air” around him that was enigmatic and that piqued my interest.
