Small Chops: Preach To Yourself

Small Chops: A Nigerian term for Canapés, Hors d’oeuvres and the like. Small Chops: Quick thoughts of mine Dubai Mall is one place I avoid going to on a normal day. I only go there when I have guests visiting, but yesterday I changed my mind. It served as great reminder to trust God in all things and with all things. No filter has been used on this picture. No filter should be used when in communication with God. He sees through all that and knows us better than we know ourselves. From sand, came this building made with human hands. How much more can God do with you who he created in His image? #PreachingToMyself  #TurnToYourNeighbourAndSayISSAWord! #TurnedToMyselfThough 🙌🏾👋🏾 The Burj Khalifa, Dubai, March 2018 Signed, @OlayideM Advertisements

Small Chops: Everything You Can Imagine Is Real

Small Chops: A Nigerian term for Canapés, Hors d’oeuvres and the like. Small Chops: Quick thoughts of mine “Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good.” ‭‭Genesis‬ ‭1:3-4[a] When I get overwhelmed or doubt my capabilities and every reason why I can’t, I have to remind myself of who I belong to. The Creatively Creative Creator. Our limitations are self-imposed, imagine if we actually allowed Him – The Limitless One – to help us through everything that seems impossible? Let’s not limit His Sauce levels because He is all the Sauce we need! #StaySaucy #StayFocused #CreateLikeYourPops #LetHimBeTheDolmioToYourPenne The revelation for the week. ✌🏾 Signed, @OlayideM

Small Chops: The Gift of Community

Small Chops: A Nigerian term for Canapés, Hors d’oeuvres and the like. Small Chops: Quick thoughts of mine Taken from my IG Page (IG: @OlayideM), originally posted on 12 July 2017. An unexpected hour with my friend Nkechi had me ever grateful to God for the gift of Community. Community isn’t defined by proximity, but defined by a mutual value and appreciation of the gift. Don’t let social media fool you into believing your community is tight, true Community doesn’t require validation from likes, RTs and views. A few minutes on social media has never inspired or encouraged me (it’s done the opposite), a few minutes with true Community has made me feel I can do anything and everything. True Community will call you out about the worst version of you, and celebrate you at the same time. It will laugh with you, it will cry with you, it will pray with you (and especially for you) and more. True Community gets behind the scenes while being in front of the camera. It’s involved. True …

Small Chops: When Life is Foggy

Small Chops: A Nigerian term for Canapés, Hors d’oeuvres and the like. Small Chops: Quick thoughts of mine This picture was taken early January in Dubai. People are often under the impression that Dubai is 24/7 Sun, Sea and Sand, which most times of the year it is, but it rains*, it gets cold (from 40º+  heat to 16º in “winter” so yes it gets cold), the fog is impossible to see through and the sandstorms are things only meant for Disney Films (sand in your hair after wash day is the worst). As with Life. Life may be and even continue to be a Sun, Sea and Sand picturesque moment, but sometimes fog and rain will appear in places you least expected (literally). Looking at this picture, and not knowing the many floors located in the building, it’ll be easy to assume that only the floors in this picture are all the floors in the building. This building has 33 floors (I work on the 31st), in the fog you can just about make …

Small Chops: Despite

Small Chops: A Nigerian term for Canapés, Hors d’oeuvres and the like. Small Chops: Quick thoughts of mine Despite the fear of writing, He still gives me words to write. Despite not taking rest seriously, He still wakes me up to a new day filled with new opportunities. Despite not getting right, nearly all the time, all things concerning me have been made right in Him. Despite my struggle to stay connected to Him, with ease He reminds me of His love for me. He stays connected. Despite my shortcomings and endless failures, He succeeds on my behalf, staying flawlessly victorious. Despite it all, it’s His opinion of me that matters most.
