Are You Prepared?

Hello dear reader, I’m sorry it’s always a long time before we meet again. My apologies πŸ™ It’s only when I’ve learnt something new from The Holy Spirit, that I’m able to write or when there’s a purgation of emotion in me; hence, I write. For today, I have a very important thing to say of which I also I’m a victim of!πŸ˜” Lol!!! Don’t feel down though. I’ve come to realize by God’s help that when we discover the truth about something that we thought we knew, we tend to feel angry or downcast; which should not be, It is an avenue for us to broaden our knowledge scope and move an inch closer to our God ordained destiny! Okay talk is too much for my body todayπŸ˜‹πŸ˜πŸ˜‚. So the topic! Are You Prepared???

It’s funny how most people enter into marriages, so excited and all. Later, we begin to hear news of divorce or separation. One would begin to wonder, nna, what went wrong? Me I like to think ooh, that’s me for you, I go think think sote, my brain too tires for me. This is because it all seems crazy, one minute there’s a happy couple and next thing there’s divorce!

The Spirit of God however made me realize one fateful day that it’s simply because we don’t acknowledge God and ask for His will to be done, which involves God preparing us for that next step of our lives, be it career/ business , marriage, schooling, professional course, a leadership role, amongst others. From time, humans hate God’s way, (I too used to hate God’s way of doing things but regretted it when I saw the consequences) this makes us suffer horrible things or a horrible fate. You see a beautiful lady getting married to a handsome man and next thing bruises on her body; Or, you see a politician recently elected messing up as if the “village people are on his case” , we also see cases whereby someone whose been wishing to travel abroad for greener pastures but ends up going there but regrets it, and so on and so forth. This is all because we refuse to allow the One who made us to lead us. Trust me! We don’t know anything as humans so the Bible says, we don’t understand our lives and cannot say this is A or B. Rather than trying to play the tug of war game with your Father, why don’t you just surrender to Him and let Him prepare you for the beautiful life that He has made for you.

He’s always ready to help you. Jeremiah 33vs 3 (Call to me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things that you don’t know)

Have a great day and compulsory covid19 holidayπŸ˜„πŸ˜‚ God be with us and protect us all as we use this period to return back to His will and love for us in Jesus name. Amen

BYE!!!!!πŸ€ΈπŸ€ΈπŸ€ΈπŸ€ΈπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ

“Money Sharper than Knife”

Hello dear reader,

A friend of mine once said this to me while we were discussing the issue of money and till today I have not been able to get it out of my mind.

One could only wonder what God is up to for making me remember this proverb on a day like this, Our Independence day in Nigeria. Money is a necessity of life. Like, we all need money to be able to survive and do basic stuff such as eat, dress, transportation, education, amongst others.

But, how can money be sharper than Knife???? Now this is the intriguing aspect that gets to me any time I think about it.

This proverb came from a late friend of my friend, He said (my friend),

Before he died, he told me that money is sharper than knife and funny how the next day, he died.

The Bible tells us that the love of money is the root of all evil, its a saying we all play with randomly but do we truly know the meaning?

Money is a two edged sword, it can be good as well as bad. The result of loving money excessively could be said to be one peculiar reason of where Nigeria is today. Lately, we’ve been hearing how BUHARI’s administration have been catching various politicians affiliated with looting of funds. The one that shook me was the politician (name withheld) who kept a huge stack of money running to billions in a house. The money was just sitting there and looking while people are out there, hungry and starving! Not to mention, the “agberos”, who risk their lives for politicians during the election period because of the money that would be given to them.

Or should we even talk about people who give their lives up for the government or some extremely rich and powerful people in society to be used to cause havoc or used for inhumane acts like bombing, spreading of diseases amongst others because they were told that they would be paid and their families would be taken care of after they do “the job”. The job that causes millions to be ruined.

The one that infuriates me is when, oh wow! I seem to have forgotten! There are so many ways you could think of, by which money drives people insane and causes them to die. This is where I draw the curtains, money is good to have, not wrong at all, its a blessing from our Creator, however I pray the spirit that makes money sharper than knife, which ruins lives would not ruin ours by His grace (in Jesus name). Amen

Enjoy Your independence day. Proud to be a Nigerian any day any time πŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ’ƒπŸ½ #1πŸ’•πŸ’•

Afraid of Leaving your comfort zone???

Hey dear readerπŸ€Έβ€β™€πŸ€Έβ€β™€πŸ€£πŸ€£yeahπŸ˜±πŸ™ˆits been a looong while. So sorry for that. A lot has happened over the course of the long awaiting. I mean a loottt! But that aside, God has been indeed faithful to me, giving me blessings left, right, center, up and downπŸ˜†. Once again glory to His name.

So getting down to business for today.

Lately, God has been teaching me a lot of lessons and exposing me to more of my weaknesses that I assumed were fixed but actually were not fixed. So dear reader, never feel like you are perfect or because you heard a sermon on this weakness so you feel all hyper and wooo your free , well its good to be excited as that’s the victory of Jesus through His word but still have it in mind that the weakness is there but you depend on He who is stronger than every weakness.

So leaving your comfort zone! What does that mean😱😱😱 Some of us (Me for instance) don’t know or have anything doing after graduation if you live in Nigeria ni ooh😁. And that’s because some of us are too comfortable and at the same time to scared of leaving our comfort zone that is our parents house, to go experience life and see its ups and downs before we become that great person God wants us to be for His glory. Let’s take a look at Joseph’s life in the Bible, God intentionally made him have those dreams of the greatness He had in store for him. However, the same Almighty God took him out of his comfort zone that is his father’s house(Jacob) where he was well catered for and loved to a place (Egypt) where he had to work very hard and suffer to understand what life was all about, which also prepared him for his greater tomorrow as Prime minister of Egypt, I mean, would you look at that! .

Likewise we young people, a lot of us like me included, we are so afraid and terrified of leaving our parents comfort to go experience the world and all it has to offer. My dear, God has already told us in His word that in this world, there will be trials and tribulations but we should fear not for He has overcome this world(John 16:33) . Therefore, with Jesus in your life/boat, you don’t have to worry, because there is always an assurance of landing safe at your promised land when you have Him in your life.

If you would like to accept Him into your life today anew, you could kindly say these words:

Dear Jesus, thank you for all you did on the cross for me, thank you for dying and taking my sin upon you. I repent and forsake them all (mention them to His ears). Asking that you cleanse me with your precious blood and take me as I am. Today I accept you as my personal Lord and saviour in Jesus name. Amen. Thank you Sweet Jesus. I love you.

God bless you, welcome to the born again life in Christ.

Now you need to attend a Bible believing church and ask for the Holy Spirit and begin to experience this beautiful life. For more questions, you can message me or go on google to answer any questions you might have concerning what’s the next step after giving your life to Christ.

DEFINE WHO YOU ARE

Hello reader,

So define who you are?? The thought dropped into my mind like just right now and its the Holy Spirit,so i believe. So am pushed to obey. πŸ˜…

Dear reader, do you know who you are? Recently, i was asked this question and sadly i couldn’t answer at all. Then tonight i remembered the words of my aunt telling me to write a Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) analysis of myself. Honestly, i have not done it fully.

In all truth, how do you define yourself?? What are the things that excite you, that lift you up, what are you good at doing that others can’t, what makes you afraid, weak, sad and hopeless and so on… For me, i hate when my heart is broken, especially when what i wish to happen fails. so clearly,disappointments. I hate being frustrated and lately i have been falling into that ditch. I have been focusing on the wrong things and a whole lot. So today dear reader, look inward and do a SWOT analysis of yourself so you can give a proper definition of who you truly are. This would help you understand yourself and you won’t be able to accept another person’s definition of you.

Dear reader,

Discover that hidden potential

Work hard and pray harder! because without God, nothing works.

Then keep believing that the future is bright…

Goodnight dear reader, 😴😴😴

Till next time 😊😊

A life of surprises

Hey dear reader,

Hope you been good and feeling all right lately.

Yeah yeah i know i have been far away; distant if I may say.

But i have been good too just a little pre – occupied.

So one quick thought.

Lately in my country, Nigeria to be precise.

There has been killings, accidents like different casualties and makes me wonder. Those people who died in these events and the people who lost these people did not expect that any harm would befall someone so dear to them.

That is the reason for my title: A LIFE OF SURPRISES.

Sometimes we feel that we all got life all planned and worked out but we see that at the end things don’t go as planned. And we begin to wonder if God cares about us. When initially we did not even invite Him to our plans and expectations.

God is not a beggar and He is not someone who likes to interfere in people’s business if He is not called into it.

But from His word, He gives us a piece of advice that we should trust in the Lord with all our heart and lean not unto your own understanding.

He said it because He knew that a lot of us would think we can handle everything on our own but the truth is we can not.

That is why it is wise to trust an unknown future into the hands of a known God.

And also pray that any surprise that life brings would be planned by God and will be beautiful and pleasant surprises not harmful ones that could literally make one sorrowful and disorientated.

Have a blissful day.

God loves you so learn to commit everything into His hands by saying Lord Jesus I surrender all to you today,

All I am

All I would be

And all i am becoming

And all i have into Your able hands because You got the whole world in your hands. Thank You blessed redeemer because You have done it. πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ

In Jesus mighty name. Amen

A million dreams is all its gonna take. But you just need a dream! So i have a dream!πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ

Hey dear reader,

It’s been a while sharing thoughts and all.

Well i feel like saying something about dreams because i feel it is important to address this issue of dreams.

A dream is like what sustains a person. What keeps one going, i mean that force, that picture that drives you to keep on living and pushing forward.

I have a lot of dreams but i just have one particular dream which i must fulfill to become a reality. It is a dream that i know will help millions of people. THAT IS A DREAM!!!

*Beware of dream killers.

As i stated above, beware of dream killers!!!! They are everywhere! Yes in your school, home, family, friends every single place you breathe air.

Anyone that tells you that you cant do it or you should give up on your dream is a joy killer and doesn’t wish to make you happy at all or even see you happy. So AVOID them at all cost. They may be so close to you but if they make you go against your dream then cut them off.

*Your dream must help

This is very important! Your dream must be able to help someone. Let me use Jesus for instance as i know no other person to use as of now. Jesus’ dream was to die so that every human being would be saved from sin,death and eternal damnation. His dream is fulfilled today whether the devil likes it or not. Today people are being helped by Jesus just by accepting and trusting him. So basically, his dream has helped trillions and still counting. And today, He is the greatest man that ever walked on this earth.

So also us, our dreams must help people in one way or the other. So that we too can do great things as Jesus did.

So bottom line is that we are to dream have a dream a big one that you know will help others and give you a good name. Am not now saying that you should not have other dreams but focus on one and after you have fulfilled that dream, you can be assured of fulfilling other dreams you have. Also, work towards achieving your dream! Don’t let your dream just remain a dream! Continue to strive and work towards accomplishing your dream.

Stay positive

Stay strong

Keep believing in God through his son Jesus. πŸ™πŸ™

And keep dreaming and fulfill itπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ

Today’s a new day

Hey dear reader,

Back again after like a week to flood you with my thoughts.

So this past days,have been really crazy for me!😡😡😡like my thoughts have been getting to me. I began to feel depressed,sad and uncertain of so many things i have known and believed since i was a kid.

Like 1. My belief in God

Like 2. Me being tired of everything and i mean everything mentally.

But again i noticed that this feeling i get comes like every month especially when my period is near. I really wonder if its a problem that i need to go to hospital for or seek prayers from people who are close with God and hear him speak to them one on one.

BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?

AND MY MIND SAYS WHAT!!!!!

I AM TIRED OF BEING CAST DOWN

AM TIRED OF WATCHING MYSELF FEEL BAD

I NEED TO RESEARCH, THE BIBLE SAYS MY PEOPLE PERISH FOR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE. AND I THINK THAT’S WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME.

BECAUSE I FAIL TO KNOW THINGS OUTSIDE WHAT I AM TOLD OR HAVE KNOWN ITS BEGINNING TO TAKE ITS TOLL ON ME AND AM FEELING LIKE I SHOULD NOT EVEN EXIST TO AVOID THE PAINS AND CONFUSIONS I FEEL.

I REALLY HOPE AND PRAY THAT NO BODY AND I MEAN NO ONE GOES THROUGH THE AMOUNT OF CRAZINESS AND CONFUSION I FEEL IN MY HEAD IN Jesus name. AmenπŸ™πŸ™πŸ™

Blessed day dear reader …..

Till another time.

First day at work!

Hey dear reader,

So today is my official first day at work.

Industrial training to be precise!

It might appear to be so much fun but it really isn’t ..

You know how it feels to start secondary school or university?? Yeah that feeling! So i have to begin to make new friends and all that!!

Well lemme not give up because its just the beginning….

I just really hope all will be well and i would find good people and learn something worthwhile while am here.

I promised to share something about rest… I didn’t forget apparently…. I would show some pictures based on what i wanted to post earlier.

Yeah so some people have this resting bitch face. It makes them look like they don’t want to talk to you but unfortunately that’s how their face is. I want to enlighten you dear reader not to judge people by the looks of their face. Always believe they could have the potential of being a good person.

For now i gotta go,

Not that i have something to do oh goodness no!

I just need to process things that’s why.

So catch ya later dear reader,

ByeeeeπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ˜…

TGIF

Hey dear reader,

Sorry i have been quite distant.

My thoughts had been wavering for these past days.

I really hate the way people behave in this world at times. I was treated badly these past few days and emotionally, it cut deep. But it just made me realize that I must not be evil, I must be the change that Jesus says I must be.

According to Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

So from that Bible verse, i am made to understand that my Father expects me to do good and be kind and to be at peace with everyone. Though some circumstances might be tough or make you feel sad or angry but pray for grace to be firm and joyful. Don’t unleash that anger on other people. Trust me at times i just feel weird like am crazy i began to think crazy and it has effect on my behaviour but i try to rebuke such behaviour and ask for forgiveness.

The words of an angry man are like death words. Let me have a look at my manual to know what verse is suitable for anger.

Okay beautiful This verse i saw is from Ecclesiastes 7:9 Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.

Or in other words it means do not be fast to be angry because anger is for people who are foolish. That is those who can’t overlook things to see the bright side of it. And sadly a times am like that as well! But Lord have mercy on me. Remembering that the word of the Lord says that for we walk by faith not by sight. (so most of the things that happen round us we should see it as not normal as spiritual which will help us to be more joyful and behave better and accommodate people better).

So as i was saying we gotta be the good change. We have to be better people. Treat people with love, respect…

Even though you were not happy initially as you smile and help others diligently you will see yourself feeling better, at least it works for me.

And also REST!!! IT IS VERY IMPORTANT. WHEN GOD CREATED THIS WORLD FOR 6 DAYS HE KNEW IT WAS A LOT OF WORK TO REASON. TO FORM IT IN HIS MIND AND TO ACTUALLY MAKE THEM WAS NOT EASY SO HE KNEW HE NEEDED REST. SO HE DID THAT ON THE SEVENTH DAY. SO ALSO WE AS HUMANS, GOD HAS TOLD US TO ENDEAVOUR TO REST AS WELL AFTER WORKING SO HARD DURING THE WEEK. WHICH IS SATURDAY AND PLEASE INCASE OF ANY THOUGHTS ON SERVING GOD ON SABBATH YES YOU CAN WORSHIP GOD ON ANY DAY INFACT ITS SUPPOSED TO BE EVERYDAY YOU GIVE GOD WORSHIP, THAT IS WHAT HE LOVES AND EATS. BUT That’s A WHOLE MESSAGE FOR ANOTHER TIME AND DAY.

So rest is important because it originated from our maker as our lives are not ours that’s why we can’t control when and how we are born and die. Because our life is not ours. And since sin has entered the world and we are no more immortal as our Father is. So we are bound to be tired whenever we do strenuous work but God is telling us in His word to endeavour to rest always. The benefits of rest are many.

Let me share a few with you in the next post.

But for now dear reader, try to rest so u will be good and friendly to people. Your mind will be open and not dull and tired.

Treat them with respect and love and see how happy and fulfilled you would be.

Always ask for the presence of God to be in your life as there is always fullness of joy in God’s presence. anytime you are sad just be prepared to ask for the presence of God!! To be excited….

See how peaceful it is to sleepπŸ˜‹πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

Dear reader am going to do mine!!! So i can be kind to people as well.

Catch ya later dear readerπŸ™πŸ™
