We had such a great time on Hephzibah Radio, thank you for all the love and support. We were so overwhelmed during the show and even got word from Soji that there were listener around the World, so much that the the radio listener capacity had to be expanded during the show. Thank you for tuning in and coming hard with your questions. Hopefully there will be a part two. Bless you guys!
For those who missed it, you can catch up with the show! Likewise for those who just want to relive the moment.

My fiance and I recently had our engagement shoot done and guess what. God’s favour was all over it as always.
We did not pay one kobo, penny, cent, nada.
Alakija Studios is a renowned photography company, they shoot for the elites all over the world, so why and how did we, young, recently engaged, with hazardly low bank accounts get to shoot with Alakija for free? I’ll tell you why…Favour.
Alakija were coming to London from New York to run a workshop for photographers and said they were looking for a couple for the attendees to practice. Initially, they were only looking for one and when I messaged Jide (big boss of Alakija) who I have on facebook, he said that they’d already got a couple. So I was like, ah well, ’twas worth a try. We still have our lovely gift from sister Tolu which is another photoshoot experience and we’ll get a photo printed, so all hope isn’t lost ayy.
I left it. And then three days before the workshop. Jide messaged me to say that they need more couples and asked if we were available. Of course we were available, calendar got cleared real quick lool. God blessed us, with one of the best photography sessions and the pictures came out beautifully, if I do say so myself.
Children of God. We are favoured. When things don’t work out the way that you’d expect, just trust that God has a better plan. God hears the sighs of your heart, continue to trust Him for the best, even when it seems illogical.
Have a look at some of the pictures below and help us to thank God for His favour :)

Major shout out to Alakija Studios – Jide and his wife Dele (she did my make up)! Also thank you to the other photographers, Jeffrey (jotmms.com), Ronke (picturesbyronky.com) and Nims, who will be sending us their shots soon.
My fiancé and I are super excited to release our pre-wedding blog! Check it out here: whenpurposemeetspurpose.com
We want to invite you to be a part of our journey, as we head towards sealing our union in God’s eyes, through marriage.
We will use this blog to encourage our fellow brothers and sisters on their personal journeys. In addition, we will use this blog to encourage those pursuing Christ-centred relationships by being transparent about our struggles and testimonies, both individually and as a couple.
We pray that this blog along with fellowships, meetings and more, will serve as a great foundation for the ministry that God has placed in our hearts. Which is Purpose!
The simple mission God gave us is; ‘I want a generation that love Me’ (Psalm 24:1-6).
Women that love God…Women of Purpose!
Men that love God…Men of Purpose!
Couples that love God…When Purpose Meets Purpose.
He sees the battles we fight behind our smiles.He honours our selfless obedience to encourage others when we ourselves are in desperate need of encouragement.He sees it all.
I want to encourage you to find hope and comfort in the Almighty God who knows the end from the beginning. The one who allows us to pass through trials, knowing that it will strengthen us when we rest in His strength. He begins when we end.
As I write this I weep not only for my trial but for those like me who sometimes feel like though they pour out to the masses, no one is there to understand or bear their burdens. Those who feel like they are constantly carrying their problems and also the problems of others.
But realise that we have the liberty of casting all our burdens on Jesus and that is a choice. Holding onto your burdens will not change the fact that Jesus already died for them. His blood was shed so that we might live and live abundantly. Not simply to be abundant in the physical with material things, but abundant in our spirits, in ALL seasons.
Abundant Joy is your portion in the midst of your trial.
Abundant Peace is your portion in the midst of the storm.
Abundant Hope is your portion when things look hopeless.
Abundant Faith is your portion when you want to give up.
Abundant Love is your portion when you experience hate.
Sometimes you just have to encourage yourself, other times you need to smash down the wall of pride and actually ask others to pray for you.
So here I am asking you to pray for me and if you need to reach out to someone now to pray for you, then do it!
Transparency is your weapon.
It’s through my transparency that I can encourage you. Your transparency will encourage others and lead them to their breakthrough.
It’s through my transparency that I can expose and shatter the plans of the enemy with prayer. Your transparency silences the enemy, He has no hold over what has been exposed in prayer.
My message ahead of the weekend is:
- Take comfort in the fact that God sees everything, He is omnipresent.
- Cast all your burdens…withholding nothing! His blood paid for it all.
- Encourage yourself, but also get others to pray for you.
- Transparency is your weapon.
I love you all! God bless and keep you!

Like many of my brothers and sisters, I have the privilege of studying and with that comes some tough seasons of intense revision and studying.
It can get overwhelming, but I want to encourage you as I encourage myself.
We are incredibly blessed as children of God. We have the privilege of resting in our Father’s word and living in His peace in ALL things…including exams.
So I have a short prayer for us in this season.
Lord, give all students that love You, peace of mind as we study. Help us to focus and make the best use of the time that is available.
Give us insight, wisdom and understanding (Daniel 1:17) of our work and help us to remember it all, when the time comes.
Above all, we thank you for the ability to be able to study and for the wisdom, gifts and talents you have given us.
Help us to use our studies and everything else in our lives, in such a way that they honour and bring glory to you (Colossians 3:17).
In Jesus Name! Amen :)
If you get stressed or go into panic mode, take a break to worship and ask God for His peace.
My personal favourite chilled out revision/studying gospel albums are:
Sean C. Johnson – Every single album/song he’s ever released lol!
Smokie Norful – Every single album he’s ever released too!
And when I feel really stressed, I listen to Last Word by Elevation Worship (this is my pick-me-up song)
Loving you all with prayer. God bless you and all the best with your studies/revision.
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:6-7
