Growing Pen

Hello friends!
It’s another beautiful Monday evening. The name, Aroyehun Abisola is still mine. And here is another post, on Growing Pen. ENJOY!

Life is a journey,
Life is an opportunity.
Life is a race,
Life is by grace.

Life is not a bed of roses.
Neither is it always cozy.

Life is a step,
One at a time.
But once in a while, rest.
And when need be, climb.

For life will come,
To you with some,
Of its bigs and bits.
You have to be fit,
Very thick,
And sure to win.

dear friends,i hope you like it. If so, do not hesitate on your likes and comments for I’ll be expecting them. Feel free to share. Later!


Tell Satan To Mind His Business!



Jonathan said to his armor bearer, “Come on now, let’s go across to these uncircumcised pagans. Maybe God will work for us. There’s no rule that says God can only deliver by using a big army. No one can stop God from saving when he sets his mind to it.” (1 Sam. 14:6)

I read this portion of the scripture sometimes last week, and I feel my understanding from it will help some of us who are in pursuit of purpose but are not making much progress because we are not growing in our knowledge of God that makes us strong to do exploits.

The army of Israel led by the King Saul were hiding in the caves perhaps afraid of defeat and with no sense of the reality of God’s help. Saul’s son, Jonathan, then invites his armour bearer to an adventure that would involve going to the outposts…

I Have A Crush!!!

It’s another Saturday and another feature from DEAR CORDELIA. Thanks for reading my last post. I hope you ladies are not wasting any precious time before telling them(guys) yes.
I have a very interesting thing to talk about today.

You’ve had a crush one time or the other (don’t deny it). You probably have a crush at present. Some guys have got it bad for some beauty queens like Nicki Minaj, Genevieve, Mercy Johnson, Taylor Swift and the likes. Some girls have crush on some handsome hunks like: Joseph Benjamin, Jim Iyke, Ramsey Noah and the likes. Crushes like these are unrealistic, no matter how much or how long you crush on these people it will come to nought. I don’t have to tell you why you shouldn’t waste your time.

The good news however, is that some crush are very realistic. You probably have a crush for the girl next door, your class mate, your friend or senior colleague. Well this kind of crush is realistic. I prefer to indulge myself in a crush like this than some unrealistic crush(and I will advice you do the same).

At this juncture, it is pertinent that we give a meaning or definition to ‘crush’. According to a dictionary, CRUSH is ‘a short-lived and unrequited love or infatuation; the object of this infatuation. ‘

It is very possible to have crush on three ladies at a time for guys or four guys for ladies. All I am trying to say is that unlike the moral rule of love that says you can only love your boyfriend/girlfriend/wife/husband/partner, there is no rule that says you can only crush on one person, that is the good thing about having a crush. Most of the time, most crush are just crush nothing more, it could just be that you admire something so much in the other person. A crush of this kind might fade away with time,(as implied in the definition above)it is usually an infatuation that is short-lived. However, some crush might lead to more!!! It is at this point that it gets tricky.


It gets tricky because many make the mistake of thinking they are in love with the time other person when all they’ve got is just a crush. It doesn’t help when you see your crush almost everyday, every time and everywhere because the law of proximity will make you think you love the person. As good as a crush might be, crush is not love. If you mistaken crush for love, you might just get crushed!!!

On another note, do you know it is possible for your crush to have a crush on you??? Wow!! That is called imagination but seriously it is possible. Well, my crush has got a crush on me and it is not an imagination.

By the way, I have got a crush on…(winks)

Thanks for reading. As usual, Read Like Comment and Share
