Read: Genesis 37:18-36
Beware of Dream Killers
Some folk will discourage you from your dream just because they do not feature well in it! Some are happy for you to be successful, as long as you don’t do better than them. It can even be those closest to you. I encourage you to pursue your dreams, visions, passion and purpose with God as your focus, unapologetically!
Moreover, you must be careful about who you share your dreams and visions with. When Joseph had his dreams, there was no account of him receiving an instruction from God to share his dreams with his brothers and father as he did! He must have shared them out of excitement or pride perhaps.
We can learn from this ‘Joseph error’ and ask God to give us the ability to discern who is for us and who isn’t. On a practical note, we must learn to speak when God says speak and be still until He says move. Use wisdom in how and when you share your vision, dream, or testimony. Unfortunately, among the spectators, there are those that are rooting for you to fail. This is why it is always best to share the testimony when it is complete!
Lord, give me more of Your wisdom. I want the Spirit of discernment to govern my speech and my actions. Surround me with people that are of You, people that will support me with the vision and dreams You have given me. I ask all of this in Jesus Name. Amen!

Kanayo is a Multi-award winning, Author and Senior leader in education whose experience ranges from being a Deputy Head of Sixth Form, Head of Psychology and Lead Practitioner. Kanayo believes that these 3 elements are the driving force of her ministry and career. D.I.G; Drive, Integrity and Grace.
Having a psychology degree provides me with a broad scope to experience many industries and fields of work. Although, my main aim is to continuously learn and also to share my knowledge and experience with others, within and beyond the constraints of the psychology community. Hence my pursuit to teach!
Hopefully, the readers of this blog will find that it is infested with a scope of psychological knowledge, with the intention of conveying psychology in such a way that it is interesting and understandable to those who aren’t studying it as a discipline. In addition, you will find that I heavily cover various topics aside of psychology such as, Christianity because I am a Christian. I draw both passions together, Psychology and Christianity, observing how they complement and sometimes clash! This blog is where ‘Psychology meets Scripture’.
As well as teaching Psychology, I know God has called me to do something far greater in this world. My passion is for His Word and to encourage others to read the Bible, fall in love with it, but most importantly…fall in love with The Author! My role of teaching is not limited to psychology. I strongly believe God is stirring up the ‘teacher’ office of the Five fold ministry in me.
I’m a doctor by virtue, healing and performing heart surgery with words of encouragement.
I am extremely driven and passionate about getting everyone; both Christians and non-Christians to read, understand and live out the word of God. To achieve this, I’ve created online Bible Challenges, whereby people around the world via social media, read a book in the Bible, one chapter a day and share what they have drawn out from the text. I have numerous Bible challenges, all accessible from my blog (www.doctorkanayo.com) and the YouVersion Bible App where over 250,000 people have completed my devotionals around the world. One Bible Challenge at a time, I aim to change the skewed perceptions of the Bible being irrelevant and to show the true reality that the bible is ‘juicy’, tremendously relevant, fun and easy to read. My one prayer is that my teachings and writings from His word, will touch at least ONE person. That would be a serious mission accomplished to the glory of God!
If you have anything you would like me to blog about, do let me know by either commenting, or contacting me via my contact form.
Thank you for visiting my blog. With love, Kanayo x
