What a turbulent year 2015 has been for me.
I’ve had an abundance of joy and moments of sorrow.
I’ve been spiritually weak and I’ve been spiritually strong.
I’ve been rejected and I’ve been accepted.
I’ve let myself down and I’ve made myself proud.
I’ve let God down and I’ve made Him smile on me.
I’ve made some silly decisions and I’ve made destiny-preserving decisions.
I’ve loved and I’ve hated.
I’ve felt low and I’ve felt tall.
I’ve been broken and I’ve been made whole.
I’ve been hurt and I’ve been loved.
I’ve felt like a loser and I’ve overcome.
In it all, I give thanks to God…
For keeping me.
For being my glow.
For being my Source.
For being my Defence.
For His discipline with Love.
For making me more than a conqueror.
For giving me Courage and Strength.
For His blanket of comfort.
For His Perfect Peace.
For the weight of His Word, keeping me grounded.
For His Faithfulness, even in my rebel ways.
For saving me from my pre-mature desires and maturing me in the process.
For teaching me to love again, to hope again and to stand tall again.
For removing every dead weight that I was trying to hold on to.
For surrounding me with His beautiful children, where I found safety in their Godly counsel.
I thank God for what He will do in 2016.
As Yaweh, ‘I Am’. Forever in my Past, Present and Future. I trust Him with 2016.
I trust Him with 2016

Below is what Ade had to say about me *blushes*
Kanayo is a wonderful lady I met on twitter inspiring thousands with her words and life with God receiving all the glory. I hope to meet her physically someday when I travel to her country! 🙂

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
