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:

*Service for God (faithfulness)

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.
