WHO AM I?
Hi, I'm Chidera and I'm a 21-year old faith and lifestyle blogger, photographer and Youtuber. My aim with this blog is to inspire people through my life, and ultimately to bring glory to God. I want people to come on here and see nothing but Jesus shining. Matthew 5:16 is my all-time favourite verse, and that's exactly what I'm trying to do through this blog.
This blog is dedicated to Kikaose Ebiye-Onyibe, who saw God's light in me before I could see it in myself.
Matthew 5:16 - "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."
The world has enough cool and they don’t need to come to church to look for that. People need to know the love of Jesus Christ, not how “lit” church can be. It’s our job to share the Gospel, not sell the Gospel.
People act the way they do for reasons that make sense to them. Rather than judging their actions, we should seek to understand them. And when we can’t understand them, we should seek to love them regardless.
If you're like me, you've struggled with knowing how to love people - truly and deeply love people - without getting hurt. You may be the kind of person who cares a lot about people, but you don't know how to do that without leaving your heart open to being abused by others.
So I constantly find myself in a bit of a dilemma whenever it comes to certain life decisions. Part of me wants to get up, be proactive and go after what I want. The other part of me thinks it’s better to be still and wait on God to give me a word on what to do. So which part should I listen to?
It’s funny, I never used to like winter. In fact, I hated winter so much when I first came to the UK. I had lived in Nigeria my whole life where it’s always hot, and moving to the UK where it’s NEVER hot (except for like one month in summer) was such a massive change for me.
Every new year since I got saved, I’ve had a word for the year. This is a word or phrase that I choose to describe the upcoming year. It normally sums up how I want to live, and I intentionally focus on it all year long…
For those of you who may not know, I’m Nigerian and I grew up there. One of the biggest problems we have in Nigeria is that we don’t know where culture ends and religion begins. We often tend to confuse the two, and I was guilty of this when I was younger. I grew up not knowing the difference between culture and religion.
