You won’t have to stay up long enough to hear one more sad story. We’re daily inundated by sad news — from the media, friends, relatives, and even from our own seemingly hopeless situations. Before long, we may start questioning the validity of God, especially, if our challenges get the better of us. Soon, our confidence and peace begin to erode.   Meanwhile, God is doing great things that we sometimes fail to capture. This is true in my own life.

 

Following my conversations with many Christians, I realized that many of us struggle to live by faith on a daily basis. This was a recurring statement, only said in different ways. There seems to be a disconnect in translating what we read from the Bible to practically and daily living it out. No wonder, the Christian life can feel dreary and demanding.

Even though we crave faith adventures, for many, life is one long continuous drag. That’s why I decided to share faith -thrilling life stories to help you see the hand of God in the life of others, as well as to encourage your faith walk.These stories will show you how others have experienced victories from health challenges, family struggles, workplace challenges, financial setbacks, life-threatening incidents and lots more

The stories will resonate with you as they’ll instruct, encourage and even challenge your faith walk. The victories you’ll read point to what our all-powerful God can do in your own situation if you’ll demonstrate your faith. Revelation 12:17.

 

Meet Amaka

I was born in Nigeria, lived in Norway for Eight years, and currently reside in Canada with my family. I’m a wife & Mum of four lovely girls. I experienced a series of challenging incidents in my life some years back. These incidents unfolded like a marathon, and most of it happened in a space of four years. It felt like I was teleported into a maelstrom of stress. When it was over, I was forced to evaluate what had happened.

The birth of my twins was just one of the many incidents. Before now, my devotion to God left much to be desired. After the twins arrived, things became difficult. Family life became so hectic as I tried to juggle a dozen of tasks at once. I was overwhelmed by daily responsibilities and found myself frantically looking for help.

As if all these weren’t enough, in 2014 (3 years later), while on my master’s degree programme in the University of Oslo, Norway, I discovered I was pregnant with my fourth child. I almost ran crazy. With four little kids under 5 years of age, a Masters program, my husband working full time and no other help, I began to crumble emotionally. I realized I needed God’s help to remain sane each day. I dreaded waking up. My thoughts constantly clamoured with reminders of endless chores waiting for me— assignments from school, papers to read, what to prepare for dinner, kids school lunch, appointments to keep, the list continues.

I dreamt of chores and woke up to chores; It was such a nightmare getting from morning to night. I became impatient with my kids. Although I was overwhelmed by time pressures, I finally resorted to carving out time early every day to meditate on God’s word and to plan my day. Before long, this new habit of spending quality time with God each morning had a dramatic impact on me. It made the difference between my being nice or being a monster to people around. It helped me develop ears to hear God and do what He instructs.

As a result, I started experiencing tangible victories in many areas of my life. I was thrilled to see that each victory propelled me to trust God more. Excitedly, I began to document and pay attention to what God was doing in my life and others’. As I shared these victories with friends, many were encouraged and challenged. As I saw how these victories resonated with friends and relatives, I thought, “Why not start a blog to share my stories and others’ to encourage many more?”. I relish the satisfaction of having to publish helpful and encouraging news!

God bless you!

I’d be thrilled to hear what God has done for you. Do you want to share your story?

When, God, When? When Waiting Takes Too Long

To everything, there’s a season and a time, including our pains and challenges. Just as a pregnant woman will not carry her baby forever, so are there due dates to our struggles. The real question is not when will this end, but will we abort the baby before its due time? Will we be prepared when delivery time is set?

What if We Stopped for the One

How would we live our lives if we realized that we carried in us pieces of answers to people’s problems?
What if we deliberately decide to notice people’s pain? What if our plans occasionally get interrupted? Would it mean something to us that stopping for the “one” might pull them, a step closer to the father’s love?
