God in his mercies, drew me to himself from an early age.
My journey to God, from my end, was a progressive one, which started with God using my sisters’ prodding and encouragement. The best way to describe it was that I started by dipping my feet into the ocean that is God and He lovingly drew me, and draws me deeper still, despite my failings, sinfulness, and brokenness.
Born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria, I later immigrated to the US for higher education, and I have been working across a couple of industries, which God uses to continually refine my faith in so many ways.
Along the way, I increasingly got tired of my growth in God, as I saw that my life mirrored little of the truths that emerge from scriptures, as a whole, and in a proper context. Over time, God began to unravel my identity from other things, and make me unlearn "truths" that were in fact false. I now see myself as a beloved child of God and see purpose as more of who we are becoming, rather than what we do. Said another way, I firmly believe that the goal of life is transformation to Christlikeness or "to glorify God and enjoy him forever."
I moved to the Bay in the fall of 2013 and started attending Mercy Hill almost immediately after. I have been blessed in so, so many ways by the community here at Mercy Hill. I feel totally inadequate to serve God and his church through in this way. However, I am excited by the impending growth!
My prayer is that we will, daily, continue along the path of becoming more and more Christlike - that with unveiled faces, we will behold him, who transforms us into His own image and likeness, from one degree of glory to another, all for the sake of Christ and to the glory of God.
