Tuesdays...

My Tuesdays are funny
My week starts on Tuesdays but everything I am doing is geared towards Wednesdays and Thursdays
My whole mind and heart is so gungho'd and wired up (is that a word?) that I can't focus on anything.

New Schedule though:
1. Work article for the week.
2. Social media concept to answer needs
3. Write write write
4. Answer questions
5. Meditate on scriptures

Simple enough abi
Now just to keep to it!!!

It matters...

You don't really believe in something until it runs your life. What you believe controls your life.

I really believe in Jesus Christ and His word and His holy Spirit
and He controls my life.
I believe I am led by the Spirit of God.

I am just not sure of what I am doing at this point in time, don't get me wrong, I have a plan I am on right now. I am just not sure if that is the same plan that God has for me.

I must have a clear picture of where I am going and right now, what I see physically is pretty shaky. Is it worth all the stress? and the emotion? and the talkings?
What is everything really worth?

I don't mean in the public eye, I mean behind the scenes, is what I do really worth it? Would God be proud of it? Is it worth my lifeblood?

I feel like I have been playing a charade and yet there is God here.
I am not quite sure what the answer is, but I know that God will lead, He hasn't failed me before.
He will lead
And I will follow

Something true...

Ivan Fernandez Anaya is a hero. Maybe not in the eyes of the media but in my dictionary, he is.

Here's his blog site Ivan Fernandez Anaya
Go and get the full story there. It is a very noble act.

In the light of Lance Armstrong recent confession on Oprah's show that is causing such a hullabaloo  Ivan stands out as a man who carried out a kind gesture even though he could have won at all costs. This is the spirit of sportsmanship and likely the spirit of Christ. He put the needs of the Kenyan man who was black ahead of himself.

He could have been dog-eat-dog but he wasn't, he could have been racist but he wasn't. This is very admirable!
He is only 24 years old but it is not difficult to get a picture of the kind of man he will become, I don't mind my brother and male cousins emulating him. He is noble. Nobility is a virtue to be cultivated, if you don't believe, go read Philippians 4:8.

I followed him on blogger and sent him a note on Facebook, just being me jare!!!

I read 21 of them. I don't feel so terrible anyway, to kill a mocking bird was half finished because the owner wanted his book back. I heard it is very interesting sha, I might buy it online, though. A lot of these English novels are satanic! Or rather their writers are professed satanists. You know I like books a lot so I read my sisters literature book (she studied English so she has lots of books I read when I wasn't working) I was shocked to find that one of my favourite writers (Nora Roberts was a satanists) I promptly stopped reading her books. Stephen King is one, I never even liked him anyway, I hate horror stories. The closest I came to reading horror was Dean Koontz probably an alias.  

So I just might not read all of them. I will read some sha. A lot of them were even boring!

The land is green!

The land is green abi?
It's 2013

The year is looking bright for me
A lot of exciting things are happening.

I have done a training. Succeeded in scheduling one for each month so I am committed to developing me career wise, I still am not disciplined in writing every single day. I am going to try to write today sha even if I am tired and if I can't use the laptop, I will use the writing pad and biro at the foot of my bed, so you see I am doing everything necessary to make sure I write.

I am sourcing for a prayer partner who knows that praying is more than just opening your mouth and talking to God, she's female and she's discrete and of course we go to different churches so the chances of conflict arising is that 'little bit' smaller.

I am still waiting to start my businesses, two of them, if it doesn't kick off in January, then it would be February, I want to be responsible the American way. They leave home at 18 you, know. I had bigger dreams for myself. They are still big anyway, I just didn't meet my deadline but I am back on track and I am needing the help of God and the help of the Holy Spirit more.

Those dreams I could achieve myself but the newer dreams, I can only do with the power of God. I notice that I need a little impulsiveness and gusto of the younger me, and less cockiness but a settledness (Is that a word?). Whatever, I want to live my dreams and feel the fulfillment of a life that does more than only what it is told. Where is the innovation?

Whatever, I'm glad I could write something from my heart and not a bunch of rules/new year resolutions or cut and dried stuff; this actually feels alive. I think I have been writing rubbish since.

I want to out dream myself and out-do myself...more later

(Now to connect this stuff so that I can blog from my phone....going going)

N.B. I admire all those old ladies who are intercession peeps, they intercede so much I imagine their face begins to glow from being in the presence of God so much and they have so much understanding and I think it is peace written boldly on their faces. I want to do that some time, participate in intercession, I mean.
