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

Small Chops: He Fell Off His Bike

Small Chops: A Nigerian term for Canapés, Hors d’oeuvres and the like. Small Chops: Quick thoughts of mine Sometime last year, I was out one day completing errands for my mum’s party and I saw something that really encouraged me. A little boy had just crossed the road with his dad and grandmother, riding his tiny bike so confidently with his training wheels on. Having reached the other side of the road his front wheel hit uneven ground and he fell off his bike. It would have been understandable if he had cried, but he didn’t. He got right back up and stamped on the uneven part of the pavement, almost as if he was reprimanding the pavement for his fall. His dad had watched this second-long incident play out and rather than pet the boy or blame the boy for not looking where he was going, his dad stood above the uneven pavement with his finger wagging.

Writing: I’ll Be Honest…

Over the past few days I’ve been reading Proverbs 10 and verse 11 really stood out to me and it pretty much says “The words of the godly lead to life…” If you’ve been following my blog you’d notice some inconsistency with how often I post and it has been stressing me. I have big plans for my blog and sincere prayers of what I want my blog to be. I started this blog with very little structure or idea of what it can become, next year, I would have had my blog for five years, and it’s only now that I’ve gotten my focus. It is the verse above.
