Fight for what you want

This past weekend, my church, the Common Wealth of Zion Assembly Abuja had a conference with Bishop TD Jakes. On Saturday, the crowd was crazy, but I did not expect that there would be a repeat of that crowd on Sunday. Never the less, I still made a mental note that I would be there very early. Read More »

One day your Pain will be all worth it; Hold on

Joy 2

Are you going through difficult times, do you feel overwhelmed, do you feel like it may never end? Do you sometimes ask yourself, if it’s all worth it, well I’m here to tell you that it is. Your tears are not in vain. One day your tears will be worth it.

One day your pains will be all worth it. I know you have cried, I know you may have gone through things you never imagined you would go through. You may have been through hell or high water; you may have been between the devil and the deep blue sea.

You may have been insulted, despised and looked down upon, you may have been called all sorts of names, been misunderstood, but I am here to tell you that one day, not too long from now, your pains will be all worth it.

Can I please say stop crying? Can I? Please stop crying, don’t overthink your pain, and don’t sweat it. Your tears will not be in vain.

We don’t go through stuffs for nothing. At the end of it all, you will come out stronger. You will be better for it. You will look back at the once painful story and you will thank God for it.

Document your challenges, document your lessons, because you will learn and grow from every battle you face.

Your past will not define you; it will only refine you.

You know what, if you can just hold on a little while longer, not too long from now, your story will change and inspire millions.

One day your pains will be all worth it.

I am rooting for you.

Debbie’s Corner: Am I ready to become a Doctor?


Howdy, everyone?

How’s the last month of the year going like for you?

So it’s no longer news that I’m an aspiring doctor

But then I sometimes ask myself

“Hey girl, are you sure you want to be a doctor?

Are you sure you’ve got what it takes

All the stress, the exams and all

Can you really cope?

Forget the prestige of the name doctor,

Do you love the job?

Forget the lab coat,

Do you love the lifestyle (because medicine is a lifestyle)

Are you sure someone can entrust their life in your hands?

Forget all those childhood dreams, Debbie,

Do you really have the passion?

Have you been called to it? (because being a doctor is a calling)”

And then I answer myself saying

“I can do it

I was born for it

I have the passion to be a doctor

I love the job

And the lifestyle too

I believe I can do all things

Because Christ has given me the strength

I know that I have been called into this tasking army

God has given me the opportunity to choose between life and death

And I have chosen life

So yes, someone can entrust their life in my hands

Not because I can do it all

But because I know the eternal creator is always beside me

I am going into this, not for myself

But because I know

A lot of lives are tied to it

Both spiritually and physically”

And whenever I remind myself this,

I get a new zeal

A new strength to forge ahead, to carry on

I am reassured in my spirit

That I can do this

And yes I will.
