Grace to you!
I am so excited to be with you today. You may be wondering, “This guy has a beautiful accent.” (Laugh) Yes, it isn’t one of your usual voices on radio in the United States. I am from the West African country of Nigeria, though I am a USA resident, ministering from Bakersfield, California. My childhood days were mischievous so to say. I played pranks like any other kid and used incessant cries to get the attention of my parents. You don’t want to hear more about it. But by the grace of God, I had an encounter with the Lord when I was about 14 years and a half which changed my life completely. As days roll by, you will hear more about my personal stories and relationship with Jesus.
I hope you will enjoy my stories as I bring my background in the appreciation of the message of grace for each day, and for you. Hopefully, my message will bring much joy, healing and peace to your heart.
You may be asking: Why must I spend four minutes every day listening to this priest guy with a different accent? This is why? Is there a hunger or thirst in your heart to be known fully? Maybe in your relationship with your spouse or your father or your mother, your siblings or even your friend, there is a pain, a sense of loss, you don’t feel loved fully, you don’t feel accepted fully, you don’t feel validated. My daily reflections would equip you on how to find that which you are searching for. You will hear stories of people like you, which would provide deep insight into making your tomorrow a better experience. So if you want to be known fully; to be loved fully; to be appreciated fully, connect with me through the daily reflections.
Maybe you have encountered God before; on behalf of God I am inviting you to join me every day. We all need help in our journey, don’t we? Is everyone so content they don’t need help? For instance, is every marriage so perfect they don’t need inspirations? As a priest for the past 10 years, I have seen that many marriages aren’t that perfect and families that aren’t a bed of roses. We don’t have perfect marriages, do we? Many married people would agree they wished their marriages were better. Some of them say, “We are, just kind of, resigned to the way things are.” Are you in that state in your life? Have you resigned to the current situation of your life, thinking there is no hope? Or saying, “I can’t help it? God has so much in store for you, for with God, nothing is impossible. Connect with me daily to hear those soothing, healing, encouraging and empowering words.
Are you an unbeliever, you are also welcome to hear my stories. Openness to new ideas pays much and I will be open, through your feedback, to hear your stories too. I feel my ministry is a call to dialogue, so we can come to what is good, beautiful and true.
Hope to connect with you tomorrow.
God love you. God bless you.
