Sometime in My Future
Whenever they see one, they'll scream and run around like drunkards. One will try to force her small head through the window panes but it will stubbornly not let her through. So, she'll run to the balcony and climb the railings smiling into the sky. An action that will earn her a swat on her buttocks.
Women Don’t Owe You Submission
Any simple chance they give you to speak to God's people, it is only, "Submit! Submit!' we will be hearing. Who told you the sisters don't know they are to submit? Who told you many are not already praying about it and taking careful steps on the topic? Brother, be careful with us this new year.
One is Enough
I, Chioma Jeremiah, speak to one as I would a million.
You and Your Leaking Mouth!
It does not give Jesus joy when he has to bring down the stick of discipline on her so he definitely does not want your opinion or your support. You will na stand beside him and be shouting, "Yes, hit her well. That is how they used to do! If you don't deal with it now, they will get spoilt..." Oga Christian, who asked you?
I Think I Just Saw a Demon

No Dey Form God!
Why should men be offended in Christ because of you? Who you be? Who do you think you are to control the destinies of men? Who made you a God to them? Just one word, gesture, inaction or action from you and you have influenced an entire being into a particular path...more often than not, a bad one...
The Book of Chioma
Sometimes I wonder what the book of Chioma would be like if God decides to release it to generations to come as an update to the Bible. You know how we love to read the book of Esther and Ruth and glean so much from the lives they lived? Well, I wonder what my story would sound like to others...
Where is the Clay?
Why did you run off?
Not a Valentine’s Special
While the messages of purity have gone forth long before this special day, those who want to do what they want to do will do it. I know this and I have peace. They see us as old-fashioned talkatives, people who don't know how to mind their business and are secretly pained to not have what they are "enjoying." I know this and I have peace...
