Dare to Dream: The Interview Series

I am currently brooding over the subject of going after my dreams all in (high risk) or sticking to a paying job (low risk) the thoughts of what my life will be like if I go after my dreams are nagging. I find myself questioning if my dreams are that important and are not residual feelings of childhood nostalgia.
I know I am not the only one who thinks like this – always wondering and questioning everything. I realise I can’t find my answers on my own hence I am hoping that this series will help us all find answers and make peace with our decisions.

Share you dreams in the comments below and if you want to participate please also leave a comment below!

Thank You to Mr. Tobi Johnson for the cool poster!!

You are all invited to this month’s edition of ”Simple Worship”, check the poster below for details


Ore’s Playlist March 2017

I wasn’t going to have a playlist this month because of the ongoing series ‘’Headphone & Epiphanies’’ and because I didn’t listen to music a lot this month, I am trying to practice the teachings of Brother Lawrence presented by Steve Case in the book ‘’God is here Connect’’, he teaches not to glorify the means we use to connect to God, understanding that the means can only carry us for so long.

So I tried to connect to God without music, in my thoughts, prayers and conversation with people, in the course of the month I realised that songs began to mean new things to me, the lyrics felt like I had never listened to them and I saw more of God, not only in the songs but in my everyday life, through  my emotions and in my daily struggles. I really enjoyed the joy and peace of God even on bad days, and this month had a truck load of bad days, but what I have learnt and I pray I never forget is to take the deliberate steps to dwell always in the presence of God even in the most mundane moments.

  • Elevation Worship – There is a Cloud: I am a ‘’next phase’’ kind of girl, I am always thinking of what comes after and I tend to lose hope when I can’t see what is coming. This song reminds me to have hope, to understand that God has got me covered always.

  • Elevation Worship – O Come to the Altar: This song reminds me of God’s great love for us that we can always come to him in any state we are and we will be accepted. I don’t think  a reminder of God’s love is ever too much, if anything, I think we don’t talk about it enough.

  • Elevation Worship – Do it Again: Many times we forget God’s sovereign power, we can’t see pass the mountain in front of us, the song sings of God’s faithfulness and reassurance in God’s sovereign power and we all need to remember this every now and again.

  • United Pursuit – Let You Go: I really like this song, it tells a story of a place we have all found ourselves in our Christian walk, where fear still rules and we hold on tight to our religious rituals instead of embracing the truth the bible teaches. The song sings of us letting go of all these things and embracing God, letting God control and direct us.

I pray you enjoy these songs and they bless you!

Let me know how your month was in the comments below and song suggestions


Goal: February 2017

In the spirit of avoiding self loath, we’re going to tackle Ore’s goals monthly. So here is an update on January’s Goals; 

  • I didn’t finish reading ”Soldiers of Fortune”. The book was making me so angry at the Leadership of Nigeria so I had to stop reading it. 
  • I read ”Course of Love by Alain de Botton” it was highly recommended by my friend Derin, it is a beautiful read and well written. It embodies the writer’s opinion on Love in it’s different phases, he expresses his opinions beautifully by weaving it into the story of two lovers. The story of the lovers serves has the backdrop for his opinions. I also started reading ”And After Many Days” by Jowhoe Ile, I haven’t finished reading the book but I am loving it so far. 
  • My prayer wall is up!
  • I am still working on my promise jar, but I have an app that sends me a bible text every day I am using this till I finish my promise jar. 
  • I have listened to many new songs this month, I will be searching a few in my playlist for February.
  • We held the first worship service on the 28th of January 2017. It was a beautiful time worshiping God with friends. Special thank you to my friend Tobi Johnson and the band Rep J 360 for making this a reality. You can join us for the next one on the 25th February 2017. 

Goals For February
  • Buy a hymn book; I miss singing hymns and having a hymn book will help me get back into singing hymns 
  • Visit a new place in Lagos 
  • Read two new books 
  • Write in my journal everyday
  • Finish my promise jar. 

I have an accountability partner Toyosi Jolayemi, giving her weekly updates keeps me on my toes. I hope you are enjoying following me on this journey. Looking forward to March.
