All I Don’t Like About Jesus!
I was going through my draft folder where a number of articles have been left to rot, and I came across this post that dates back to the 1st of November 2017. I began to read it and couldn't stop till I got to the end and wished I had never abandoned it. At this [...]

TRUST AND OBEY!
It's been almost 4 years since I started writing on Alethea's Mind. I remember that day like it was yesterday; the day I posted The Resurrection.

"Daddy, in my obedience, You tantalize me more than any man can afford. You remain the best Father I could never afford." Tosin This year, a lot has happened in my quaters, as much as it has with the rest of the world. I wouldn't know where to begin if I decided to tell it [...]
. . . of Simplicity, Service and Love
I've been on a special journey with the Lord since that grey Monday. On this journey, many walls I have built over the years have been pulled down and layers of veils torn apart as He gently strips me down to the original state He intended when He created me. I wish I can write [...]
