My Christmas post...

Lara is having a Christmas giveaway... I pray I win.
I want the shoes but I am not sure about my shoe size. I wear a Nigerian size 39. I don't know what my UK or American size should be. If you know, please holla me.

My new blog is here but i wanted it to be diaryofa21stcenturywoman but it is more about my Christian life than about swag. Give a witness if you know that sometimes you have to give up swag for Christianity. Yay!

So during the service today we were asked to write out our plans and all I can think about is my spiritual goals. It is the same as it was in 2008 but in practice I am sure it would be different.
I am reading two books before the end of 2012.

I am adjust my blog site so that I can post from my blackberry and no I don't add people on social networks to my Blackberry Family, it would spiral my direction out of position and it is my desire to be positioned right always so I guard my associations carefully.

Let me share my spiritual goals:

2 Peter 1:5
...add to your faith:

*Goodness
*Knowledge
*Self-control
*Patience
*Service for God (faithfulness)
*Kindness
*Love

If all these things are in you and are growing, they will help you to be useful and productive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

So Merry Christmas and have a terrific New Year filled with everything good!

Liebster Award

Ms. Sykik did not give me the Liebster award, I saw it on Hannah's blog and decided to do it because I like these kinds of stuffs. So below are the questions I got.

1.            When was the last time a guy hit on you?
Isn't that a constant K, I live in Lagos, if a girl is pretty you hit on her and see what she says. That is practically everyday so long as you're out.

2.            Who is your favourite blogger and why? ( Any answer different from my name is not allowed)
My favorite blogger is Miss brown. She's retired from blogging, her display of true emotions were too too vivid.

3.            What does the term “life and living” mean to you?
Life means zoe. Since I know what you mean, for me life is bring with family and friends and living my dreams, that is a perfect world; not there yet but I have not given up. I choose to do more than exist. I choose to live the best life there is by the grace of God.

4.            What’s your most prized possession?
I don't have a car yet or a house, my most prized possession is my blackberry, with it I connect to the world, I do business and ministry; I stay connected to my friends who live far away.

5.            How do you unwind?
I read. I watch a movie. I take a bath, dress up, make up and just feel good about myself.
I am not tagging anyone. No questions from me.

"Christian": What it means to me!


2 Peter 1:5-9

Amplified Bible (AMP)
For this very reason, [a]adding your diligence [to the divine promises], employ every effort in [b]exercising your faith to develop virtue (excellence, resolution, Christian energy), and in [exercising] virtue [develop] knowledge (intelligence),
I am not as diligent as I used to be but that glimpse of diligence shows up from time to time. I want to bear rule, it is my desire to reign and to rule on this earth so diligence is it. I exercise my faith when my back is "to the wall". I am sure Jesus would love me to exercise my faith everyday. Have I developed intelligence? I don't think so, that is just a gift from God because of my idiosyncrasies i guess, I love to read so I am always getting new information whether I want to or not.
And in [exercising] knowledge [develop] self-control, and in [exercising] self-control [develop] steadfastness (patience, endurance), and in [exercising] steadfastness [develop] godliness (piety),
Yeah, I have self control, I have had more than enough reason to lose my self-control and I held on to it with all that I had in me, because of God's scheme of things; whatever that may mean. I do have patience and endurance; I had to develop it, i honestly had no choice, if I did; i probably would have remained a spoilt brat but God took me by the hand on this walk and I went with Him kicking and screaming (Wide smile, submission is not easy o, even to God) at first but now I am willing to go the distance, what is the use of living a stupid life, with no purpose? Yeah, you got it!
And in [exercising] godliness [develop] brotherly affection, and in [exercising] brotherly affection [develop] Christian love.
Holiness, that is a gift from God to me, if my mind had a choice, it would probably run wild but I have it on a leash. Brotherly affection, I am on and off. Christian love, let me put it like this, I am willing to love, even though half the time, I want to kick their butts and tell them, I am sure I am better at this than you but I know that but for His grace, I would be only what a lunatic can imagine, God has got my back o!
For as these qualities are yours and increasingly abound in you, they will keep [you] from being idle or unfruitful unto the [[c]full personal] knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).
The qualities are mine, are they abounding, only the Holy Ghost knows that. I want to let loose almost all the time and do whatever the heck I feel like. Am I idle and unfruitful? Sometimes, when I don't think it is all worth it, there is so much in me to birth and I just pray that the Holy Ghost helps me and keeps me strong to accomplish His purpose for me.
For whoever lacks these qualities is blind, [[d]spiritually] shortsighted, [e]seeing only what is near to him, and has become oblivious [to the fact] that he was cleansed from his old sins.
My old man is dead. I need to remind myself all the time that the old man is dead, no matter how I feel or act sometimes, I know that man is dead and it is the new man that is operating in me. 
That's it!
Yay, it is Christmas, I am excited when I think I can travel and go visit my sister, her husband and her son (He's more my nephew sha). He says hello now. I am so excited just to hear Him speak. If I don't travel this Christmas, God knows I will just be buying unending credit....
No pixes....................

Why my heart sings...

What can I say?


I am not in the business of saying who's the best Christian is or isn't. I don't really care. All I know is that God loves me forever.

I am believing God for a lot of things, a lot of people have a lot to say about it; but i daresay they are not in the equation.
I have been told I have little faith, I have been told I am like an unbeliever and that, that is why God has to show me so many sign. I do not have the strength or the time to argue. I am just glad that God shows up for me. It is humbling and I am really, really grateful to Him.
If they were, I wouldn't get saved, I would go my own way but I don't because God, He and I have a covenant, it is not an arrangement where I can have a convenient relationship with God and excuse it with lame excuses.
Every time I operate in faith, it is beyond the natural, if it was the natural, it wouldn't be called faith, it would be called wishful thinking. So because I am operating in the supernatural, I maintain my position, the God who asked me to take that position hasn't changed His mind, neither will I. I trust Him!
My heart sings when I remember that God loves me!


I have never been the kind of girl that could believe God conveniently, the circumstances of my life did not give me that privilege. What it did give me was a vibrant alive relationship with God.


As for the things that I believe God for, in the natural it would be impossible or I would be expected to behave in a certain way, but I have always believed in the supernatural God. It is the nature in which I gave my life to Christ, I had real life challenges and I do not apologize for the way I came to God, He doesn't mind, I don't get why others would; they are not God.

What I have learnt today...

When you grow in the things of God the first evidence of your spiritual growth is the increase of the love nature of God in you. You walk in love, you can't hold people because of something they did to you or said to you. You can't walk in bitterness, you learn to over look those things. You don't number your enemies.

I am checking myself with it and I think I am good but nope my standards aren't good enough but because I am relating with so many people it is difficult to measure it at all. My strongest weakness: the desire for perfection still rears its ugly head from time to time. I choose humility instead and dodge the desire to prove to myself and others that I am perfect. I don't have to be. This is one of the things I have learnt from being in Christ. I am loved just as I am . So I am free to strive to become the best me; the one that God has created me to be.

I just started walking in love recently. In order to walk in love, I have to choose not to judge her or over-analyze their faults as much as it comes easily to me, for the sake of my peace of mind. I also have to decide to use the word of God for myself and not for pointing fingers at others. I also have to consciously decide that my spiritual life is more important me being the judge over others. I don't always succeed at this. I keep at it though because I choose success over failure. Since I am already a success, I am to enforce what God has said in His word. When I get stuck at thinking too much, I just say, "Father, let your mercy cover me".
I know that I have the nature of love in me so I just let that love flow. I may not have succeeded in not numbering my enemies too, instead I walk gently among them, but carefully because I still don't trust them. But I trust God. I trust that God is in charge of my life and that He is using my life for His glory. My prayer is that as I yield to Him, I continue in fellowship with Him and ignore all the distractions around me. He has given me His word about so many things that sometimes my actions are a display of my lack of trust in Him.

1 Tim 4:15 Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.
When i ask myself what the secret behind my success story is, I can only tell you that I gave myself to the word of God but then even that is not totally true. It is just the mercy of God but I can tell you that when it came to making decisions, i gave God priority. I put Him first. Sometime I hurt myself to do His will. But do you know what God has the nature of love, no be lie! All that He does and says is actually for you and for Him. He takes care of His business.

Someone said, you will always win so long as you keep standing. If you give in, it is because you did not understand that the devil is a defeated foe. He has no power, don't let other people's experiences or your own convince you otherwise.

God is merciful. 
If anyone contests this statement, all I have to say is: try going one day without the mercy of God and see what a wreck you would be. I used to be more self-righteous than anyone else, tis why I laugh at self-righteous people, because they will refuse the grace and mercy of God because they don't need Him.

Excited

I am promoting my page on face book for $4 and even though it is not much, I am interested in seeing the difference. I want to see the improvement in the advertising of my page.

I am still on it. I am spiritually aware. I know who I am in Christ. I am casting off all prejudices and labels. I am who God has made me and I am not ashamed to declare it. Whatever anyone thinks they should either keep to themselves or spend all of that attention they want to give me attending to their own spiritual life.

I have dealt well with the publicity, warranted/unwarranted.

Today is a day of thanksgiving. Chibuzor's birthday is today and it is also an anniversary. I am grateful for God and who He is and how He has revealed Himself to me.

You know before, when people say God is faithful, when I say God is faithful, I just think of all the things He does because He wants to. It is not just about money anymore. I know that I have everything I need in Christ.
If you say prove it: I will just tell you that I walk by faith and not by sight.
My words are backed by deity.

And I am just so overwhelmed by a loving God who cannot be fully comprehended because we cannot put a cap on the degree of mercy He chooses to display on whom He chooses irrespective of anyone else. He works according to His counsel and cannot be questioned. Just glad to be loved by so great a God and that I was considered worthy to be used by Him to show His might and greatness and the degree to which He cannot be predicted.

I am just glad to be the object/person of His love and goodness!

I believe

This is what I do.
My head works this way (Or maybe my spirit).
When I hear any thing or receive any information
(through my ear gate, mouth gate or eye gate)
 I cross check it with the word of God.

I know that I am a man and that my body house my five senses
That is the sensory perception
I also know that I am spirit and my spirit houses my spiritual senses
I know that I may receive information through my gates
But I am not ruled by those information
Because I am spirit

It is the information from the word of God that rules me
It gets in through the same gates but it goes to my spirit and not my head
because I am ruled by my spirit.
My spirit dominates my body and my mind
My mind is filled with the word of God so that I operate as God wants

I have the mind of Christ. My mind is dominated by the word of God
Like I said, I am not ruled by the information that comes from this world
because I hail from God.
I have to interact with others and so a lot of times I receive all kinds of information
But I am careful to renew my mind to God's word.
I renew my mind constantly by listening to the word of God

I love the way my mind works. But I prefer it when my spirit takes over.
My spirit does a lot of things that my mind cannot comprehend or explain
But that is how limitations are broken
When you think just human, you will be sorely limited.
Many who are not born again might not understand.
Many who are born again might still not understand
Many who are spirit filled might still not understand
But that is okay, the Holy Ghost understands with me and I follow His leading.

I stopped confessing God's word, I started following the crowd
Why?
I didn't want to be very different
But that was stupid of me
I function in Phronesis and Epignosis

Phronesis: The highest form of wisdom, it is the wisdom of God
Epignosis: The knowledge that causes you to act.

I am different, peculiar, separated and a property and a son of God
It makes me different but I am okay with it
I am loved by God
I matter to Him big time
I am glad that I am loved by Him

Laters!

Just pondering...

I am thinking about Samson
the one from the bible
There was a way that he shook himself
when he wanted to express the life of God in him.

I wonder how i 'shake myself'
I think i sing, meditate on the word
and just spend some peaceful time with the Holy Ghost.

I ought to do it often
why?
Well because i am a new creation, a different man
I am more what i am on the inside
than this pretty house on the outside that gets all the attention

Any time i spend all the time feeding my externals
I am missing out on the time i can be spending building my inner man
Anyway i plan to enjoy my weekend.

Focus of the weekend: Pleasing God! Walking in love (It is proving difficult because annoying factors are still there, but i believe walking in love is possible so i am going to hang in there).

I am big, so big on the inside, the way God made me!
La la, i will write some more next week!

A blogger annoyed me...

New week
Things are looking up.

Yes
And still,
Some things are annoying.

One annoying atheist blogger just pissed me off.
The most annoying thing is that i can't even remember
what i talked about.
It was one of my busy body moments...

I am just sure that i did not insult him
but he tagged me and claimed i insulted him
I have searched and searched and i can't see the insult
on his timeline or mine.

I was so pissed i blocked him on both my facebook accounts
what i was doing/thinking when i added him as friend i don't know
Well its good riddance to bad rubbish because what could an
atheist teach me anyway and to turn on me suddenly?

Well, i plan to have a good week anyway
and to change a lot of things too!
This is the end of 2012 and i should be removing unbeneficial
individuals from my social networks...

As it is,
I am still walking in love, as i know how and as i am learning
I am still improving, learning to value family and friends
learning to become a better me

Like i said on twitter, i did not change my behaviour
My human spirit was recreated so i am a new creation in Christ
learning who i am and becoming all that God has created me to be!

Sunday Tonic!

"If you go through hell, don't stop, go ahead, go ahead, go ahead, i'm going through"

This will never make sense to a logical mind or to a person who has decided to be an atheist or to hate God. God is sovereign and He is the king of the earth. It follows that He is in charge of your life and everything that is going on in it. To think otherwise is to think that you are in charge of your life.

Some people need a flood to over run their homes and towns before they believe in God. That is an error though because James says of the character of God that He gives only good and perfect gifts; that there is no shadow of turning with Him. In His sovereignty He does good to you. His nature is love and in His love for you, He does good always.

So what ever your life looks like today, you can speak the right things into it and recreate your word, if you have surrendered your life to Jesus and are submitted to His lordship.
I believe that I am a god on this earth (psalms 82:6). I am a god on this earth, i am a son of the Most High God. When i speak, the earth arranges itself. I speak and things change, they enter into the position that God desires.

I am done with the picking at you/picking at me, that is for children, i am about gods business, say whatever you want and i do assure that you will have lots that you do not expect to say.
When Benson Idahosa began to believe God and works wonders, many people came from far and wide to see him burn and manifest God. They gathered in groups and talked and plotted, all it did was to cause him to go higher, i assure you, you will have a lot to talk about; i trust God.
So i am going through and i am becoming everything that God wants me to be!

Main Point: I am a god on this earth and when i decree, even if it is like a whisper in my ears, to the kingdom of God, it is a shout and it wrought change.

This song captured my attentionhttp://soundcloud.com/titilope/icarus
It will remind you of the ALUU4 and then every other person who have ever being lynched even though they were innocent. The song is amazing, you know those things i used to dream i would sing when i grew up and learnt to worship. Now i can worship, hum but to sing, nah. God makes the difference!

Don't forget to sign. You are standing between the next lynch victim, let's make a law to protect the ordinary Nigerian. Please we need 10,000 signatures, pitch in, invite your friend and family to sign, let's make this happen.
Publicize it!

ALUU Tragedy: Can There Be Any Justice?

ALUU Tragedy: Can There Be Any Justice?

My article on connectnigeria.com

I wrote this on Saturday and i cried when i was writing it. I blamed NANS, Security, the Governor, the President and the police, even the students, the natives and the boy who was owing them the money. I still haven't resolved it but i pray that they would have justice and also that God would comfort the family of the boys so that they would have closure.

I hear from the rumour mills that all the four boys were good Christian boys, i really want to believe it.
Well, read it!

Trust

I have trust issues. I have worked on them, but with things like trust, you have to be working on them time and again. Because just when you think you got all the bases covered a trusted leader or many betray you and then a friend betrays you, and then a colleague stabs you in the back, your work gets sabotaged, you are gossiped about, back bitten (is there a word like that?)

at those times the pain can be so piercing you think you will die, but i guarantee you, you will live, i can say that because i have been there. When i tell my heart, don't trust again, it betrays me itself and trusts yet again

Scriptures say, "To be pure, all things are pure"

The gospel is the truth, it doesn't matter how many experiences you have had God is sovereign! He knows what He is doing and unlike me, He is always right.

I learnt something today, that you ought to pay attention to what the still small voice is telling you in your conscience than in what another person is saying. Focus on the voice of the spirit of God, He knows where He is taking you.

Now that i look at the big picture, even though i cannot see tomorrow, or the Holy Spirit has not shown me anything, i can see that there was never a time that He lost control or was not in charge of what was going on: brings me back to another guarantee:

"All things work together for good for them that love Him and for them who are called according to His purpose". Everything is working together for good and even though i may not see how, i can trust in His unseen hands, that is holding me up and leading me.

Most important of all, i am glad that i don't have to trust in the intelligence in my head because i have the power of the Holy Ghost working for my advantage.

Random...very random!


 The Liebster Award takes its name from a German word meaning 'Beloved, Dearest or Favourite.”
The rules:
1. Link back to the person who gave it to you and thank them.
2. Post the award to your blog.
3. Give the award to 5 bloggers with less than 200 followers that you appreciate and value.
4. Leave a comment on the 5 blogs to let them know that they have received this award.
I didn't get the award, i was too lazy to think up any idea to make my afternoon interesting.

I am supposed to write 11 random things about me. I think that is pretty easy.
1. I love to write, i can write about anything, i can write intelligently and i can ramble depending on what i want to do
2. I love to read, i describe myself as a voracious reader, i had to draw the line as describing me as someone who would read anything, i have been known to re-read my books.
3. I am resilient and i have got a mind of my own, used to be very logical, i am diligent, efficient, hard-working and if you aint smart, you could mistake me for a walk-over.
4. My faith is the most important thing to me, i believe in Jesus Christ, i believe in the Holy Spirit, i believe in doing things 100%
5. I hate jokes, i grew up complaining to my siblings that 'you know i hate jokes, stop it now' and anyone who got close to me got scolded for telling a stupid joke which is why it surprising when most of my friends have a sense of human, you'd think my friends would be stoic.
6. I am very loyal to family and friends, everyone else can have the left-overs. lol!
7. I have a dress sense most days, on other days i can just wear a denim and a tee shirt. But my dresses are always good, sorry out of this world, my strong imagination comes to play when i'm picking my clothes.
8. If i had a temperament, i would be melancholy because i am gifted when it comes to writing and i can be funny and smart when i want to.
9. I want to build a career in writing, i am presently writing my book, i have gotten a publisher, they have sent me a deadline, about to immortalize my name by writing a bestseller.
10. I like fried chicken on its own, i just take fries because everyone thinks something should accompany fried chicken
11. I don't give a hoot what anyone thinks about me, even my face may say otherwise. I know who i am, i have been carved, forged in gold so tis almost like i am set in stone. i forgot to mention i have a researchers mind, my brain does not stop moving until it solves a problem at hand.

Vacation pix

Ekenwuan Campus, University of Benin
Strange place for a vacation but i hadn't ever been there and i wanted to see what it looked like. I used to want to go to Uniben to study computer science in 1997, never made it there, dream got truncated and i eventually went to Unilag but they are both good schools.

I thought the lizards were a lil' freaky but i am not fetish, i am united with God, one spirit with Him (1 Cor 6:17)

Okay she's naked, i know!
My sister said a spiritual lady like me shouldn't take pictures with such a statue. Beautiful sculpture but i think her thigh are too muscular even for a guy but she's a statue sha.
Reminds me of me when i am standing on God's word, i am a statue!


i practiced my traditional dance from primary school. i had to practice a couple of time before i got it right, i have a patient photographer because i love pics and no one ever gets it right!

    10. If you were your own parent what would be the one thing you would teach yourself? 
    I would be more assertive and pushy, sometimes i need a push, but i would always affirm rather than use the old-fashioned way of bullying
    1. If you are doing that which you wish you had learnt earlier how do you plan to pass the  lessons on to another person who may be stuck where you were? I am very closed up, but if you can read between the lines and listen when i talk, and i hardly talk, you will learn a lot.
    2. If you are not doing it, Why aren’t you? I am on a regimen to discipline myself anew, i need it if i intend to succeed
    3. How do you plan to implement it into your daily life? I wrote down a 3 month plan and i try to stick to the time table i have set for myself. When i am on a roll, i can do 2 weeks work in a day and then do nothing for 8 days then i have to hurry to catch you up.

    10. Are you being true to your inner self or are you busy pleasing everybody else? I make sure i don't please others at the expense of my destiny and i have new coaches when it concerns my destiny and how to get there and make the best of all that God has gifted me with. 
    • If you are not being true to self, how’s that working for you? 
    • Are you happy? I am in a good place, my soul feels happy with what i am doing presently
    • How do you define happiness? Happiness is fulfilling purpose.
    • I can't define it fully but i am coming back to that place where i trust what God is saying...

Blush!

So is it now one post a month?

Nope. It has been
But i plan to change it
I write for five different blogs now
I am currently writing my book

I have begun my quarterly plans again
To see how much progress i am making
In what?
In becoming a world changer in my own lil'way

Some people are created to be unknown
Others must make their mark
they can't be silent

Don't get mad, that is just my shallow self
Everyone is created for greatness
few discover their true calling
and even fewer follow through

Lord, help me follow through and achieve
the purpose you have for me
and the purpose for which you have put your giftings in me

My motivation to do this:
"Young lady, have faith in God"

That is the power of a rhema word, it causes you to take action.

Knowing the Love of the Father

 God's love is different!




Yeah, that fits for a beginning statement. When i got saved, i compared everyone's love to try to understand what He meant when He said He loved.

Some ignorant folks secretly think its pathetic to know the love of God (Yep I have met some of them) but i dare put it to them that it is because they do not know the love of the Father that they don't understand that even all the people who think they love you can't love you until they have known Christ.

They either love you for how you look, who you are or what you do for them. They like you because you fulfill something in them, they love selfishly.

God loves you for no just cause.

You know how we want to be more of something because someone admired that in us. God loves you irrespective of your performance. He loves you when you please Him and when you don't.

You know how some people love us because of what we would add to them.

He loves you when you are good and when you are bad. When i got saved, i used to think what can i do to repay God? I laugh at my naivety then, I've been serving Him for over a decade now and I know it doesn't fit even a drop in the ocean of all that He has done.

So what do we do?
Be humbled by the way that He loves you. Receive His love. And if you don't know how, learn. Because you are wasting time trying to win His approval by the works that you do.
Work for Him because you love Him and not because you want to repay Him.

He's a lover
That used to sound somehow in my ears. Now i call Him the lover of lovers, there's no one like Him, yeah, that's the lover of my soul!

Receive His love
You can't pay for it!

NB: You have been forgiven
He is not holding anything against you
Yes, even if it is really bad, what you did
Do you doubt that He knows every lil' bit of it?

Getting the inheritance!




To get the inheritance, you must have a different spirit. God's spirit is alive in me, it is not a cliche either or something to be studied like a course you have to pass. The Holy Spirit is someone you have to get to know, He is not someone to be used either, He is someone to obey, the third person of the God head.

I am going to be analyzing Psalm 2 and what it means to me.

Why do the nations assemble with commotion

Psalm 2 

Why do the nations assemble with commotion [uproar and confusion of voices], and why do the people imagine (meditate upon and devise) an empty scheme?

 This is God's response when his creation gather together and plan schemes and crafty things similar to what is going on in the north, Boko Haram (BH: secret sect my foot) they are definitely in the leadership or in the top echelons of business in Nigeria, they are definitely not so secret, at least, the funding is not from ghosts and the like. they surprise and amaze God when they do those kind of funny futile things or make decrees that God does not agree with, such decrees can't stand.

The kings of the earth take their places; the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and His Anointed One (the Messiah, the Christ). They say,
Let us break Their bands [of restraint] asunder and cast Their cords [of control] from us.

 God goes so far as to say that the kings and rulers gather and take counsel against God and His anointed. 
Pause: (When a person comes against the Lord's anointed, they are coming against God, Hmmm, i forgot). 

He Who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord has them in derision [and in supreme contempt He mocks them].
He speaks to them in His deep anger and troubles (terrifies and confounds) them in His displeasure and fury, saying,

God laughs. He laughs because He isn't worried. He laughs because He has everything under control. He then speaks.

Yet have I anointed (installed and placed) My King [firmly] on My holy hill of Zion.
I will declare the decree of the Lord: He said to Me, You are My Son; this day [I declare] I have begotten You. 

He then speaks of His anointed that they are rooted in Zion by Him. That He is our birth Father, the Father of our second birth.

Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations as Your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth as Your possession.
You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them in pieces like potters’ ware.
10 Now therefore, O you kings, act wisely; be instructed and warned, O you rulers of the earth.

He then speaks to the anointed and asks us to ask for the nations and the uttermost part of the earth. Lord, i thank you for your word says that all things are mine, that i am going to have dominion over this world. I thank you for i have dominion in my house and in my estate. Righteousness has reign over my household and over my estate in Jesus name, amen.

11 Serve the Lord with reverent awe and worshipful fear; rejoice and be in high spirits with trembling [lest you displease Him].
12 Kiss the Son [pay homage to Him in purity], lest He be angry and you perish in the way, for soon shall His wrath be kindled. O blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are all those who seek refuge and put their trust in Him!

God then asks us to serve Him reverently  and that we should rejoice. The psalmist closes with the fact that the ones who seek refuge and put their trust in God are happy fortunate and to be envied. 

I am just glad that i am among the number that put their trust in God.

Totally Random!

How's it going? i ask myself.
Its okay if 'okay' is what i want or if 'okay' is good enough for me
Once you start capacity building though, i mean increasing your capacity
It creates what i prefer to call a 'holy discontent' and i do need it

I have been thinking about some parts of scripture (giving your life away)
It has got to be worth it, right?
If in your heart, its not worth it
It is going to affect the quality of life you live and the amount of contentment you have
And it is not about how hard, tasking or challenging the work you do is
It is about the meaning behind what you do.

I need to deal with it, create a solution, i mean
If you don't have a solution, its like hitting a roadblock
I'm putting out feelers

Spiritual wise, i'm practicing walking and reducing the working so i can refocus
If i can get the walking, i bet the working will work itself out
It might even produce something beautiful!

The word of God sets the course...watch what you say!

She's special, her name is Trish and she's a missionary

"It would be crazy to choose this world over eternity!!"

"Crazy"- Mercy Me

Why I would I spend my life longing for the day that it would end..
Why would I spend my time pointing to another man..
Isn't that crazy

How can I find hope in dying, with promises unseen..
How can I learn your way is better
In everything I'm taught to be..
Isn't that crazy

I have not been called to the wisdom of this world...
But to a God who's calling out to me..
And even though the world may think
I'm losing touch with reality
It would be crazy
To choose this world over eternity

And if I boast let me boast
Of filthy rags made clean
And if I glory let me glory
In my Savior's suffering
Isn't that crazy

And as I live this daily life
I trust You for everything
And I will only take a step
When I feel You leading me
Isn't that crazy

I have not been called to the wisdom of this world..
But to a God who is calling out to me..
And even though the world my think
I'm losing touch with reality
It would be crazy
To choose this world over eternity

I can see progress
Albeit a lil'
I'm glad i see progress

Gonna withdraw a whole
lot more
till all i hear is Him

They talk from now till tomorrow
Few of what they say translates
to actions

Pointing is a whole lot easier
than taking care of your house...

Imma do me!

PURPLE CAMPAIGN
I believe in charity, I believe in helping other people, as young as age 9, I knew I would be involved in charities, this is one step in that direction, I pray God would bring more opportunity my way to help other through charities.

Ever come across someone who has been raped, beaten black and blue or bruised emotionally? It is the same story whether it be a boy, a girl, a woman or a wife; abuse in any form is about power and control; It is inhumane, brutal and destructive to the abused. 




Many times we are at a loss of what to do and in trying to help; we usually compound the problem for the abused. This is because many of us are ignorant of what to do. We do what we think would make things better instead of what is right

You can choose though, to become a part of the solution instead of being a part of the problem. You can help drum up help for the hurting by joining “the purple campaign walk” and giving towards it.

If you know anyone who has been abused who is seeking shelter, a safe house, you can call:
