“I woke up this morning with these words: divinely conceptualized, designed, developed and destined (4-D). It’s exactly a year that God’s delight, Oluwademilade Tiwalade was born. And the joy of his arrival gives me great ecstasy always.

I knew he was to arrive on Tuesday 6th September but I wasn’t quite sure how it would play out. By 7 a.m of this beautiful day, I was already being prep for the theater, both emotionally and with series of injections and medications. With a mixed feelings of anxiety and hope, but with much faith in the magnanimity of God, I was certain that all would be well!



Surrounded by specialists and well-experienced Doctors who were also godly and full of faith, I was laid on the bed for what was going to be a unique experience for me. I recalled smiling at the jokes being made by one of the doctors, and enjoying the sweet music being played while I was being cut.


At about 10 a.m on this bright day, God’s design and heritage -Oluwademilade cried out on arrival to this world. It was obvious by his cries that he was glad to be born. And my response was in tears of joy for the miracle of a king, God’s delight. Thus, we welcome our crown, Tiwalade triumphantly and we rejoiced in the special gift of a prodigy, after nine years of waiting on God.

Now I understand that Delightsome is a divine concept of God, created and designed for His pleasure, and destined for greatness. He is God’s own project, and his portion is secured in God.  This understanding is captured by King David when he said, “For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.…” (Psalm 139:13-14).


For you who is waiting on God for a fulfillment of His promises, don’t beat yourself up; God remembers! God knows and He will save you!

Rejoice with us as we celebrate this great treasure as he turns ONE year old today. “Blessed be the Lord -day after day he carries us along. He’s our saviour, our God, oh yes! He’s -for-us, He’s God-who-saves-us. (Psalm 18:19). This is our song, this is our testimony! Yes, we are winning!”
