They deserve to be blogged about


Some people start making waves ever before they have a chance to invent something
Social media will make these girls famous today. I am not sure they counted on the kneeling down with their NYSC certificates would make them stars. Social media has decided that today  they are worth it.

A friend from college made a joke of how they were doing what GMB should have done since. I laughed of course.

Did I tell you about an amazing girl that the Holy Ghost led to Haiti? Awesome story on "Faith Channel", she made my day. Well, she told the story of how she was crying and crying and confused and couldn't understand why she was in Haiti, she spoke of how God led her to a little girl who was trying to kill a bird for food.

Long and short of the story she went to America and when she came back, she miraculously began speaking Haiti language and everyone understood her. I have always believed in miracles long before I was born again and the things of God always amaze me. Read more

I took this photo with my cell phone
Wonders of wonders, she has a blog and a site where you can help make some people's lives better. I call it a kingdom offering. Here is the site here.

Did I tell you that there is a business fair tomorrow at Eko Hotel and that it is free?

Did I tell you that you stand to win iPads?
Did I tell you that you can win printers and flashdrives?
Did I tell you that you can win N3000 off your taxi fare via the technological company that connects people to taxis? 
That is N3000 off your first two rides.

Have a great weekend. I will. My weekend is packed till Sunday afternoon. No rest this week, it will have to be next week then.



Life is just a whirlwind right now, a whirlwind of good things.

Faith Nuggets: 8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.[a]

So I am expecting great surprises...because so is everyone born of the Spirit and I am born of the Spirit so I cannot be predicted.

Just thinking...

Random things going through my mind
Not always coordinated but always creative, mind blowing!

So much is going on in the world and no matter how I try to ignore, as someone in the Arts, I always take notice and I want to express it in some way. 

I don't know what I would have done were I her but this little girl inspired me this morning. She has just lost her home but she wants to forgive the militants.


We can all learn a lesson from her. Instead of focusing on what she lost, she's focused on the God who can restore all.

I love blogging and there are some blogs that I stalk all the time. One of utmost value is this one here. I noticed that it is always edifying. You can feel virtue flow from it if you are a believer in that kind of thing and I am. I believe that all Christians based on what they are focusing on can have virtue flowing from them. Let's go there: Hajel's Musings

I read it and I just know that learning to rule your tongue and to have the mind of Christ as you renew daily is one of the greatest things that you can ever do.

I read a book recently. It is called Bridge to Haven by Francine Rivers. 

Buy it here

It helped me remember that choosing to believe in the invisible is a personal choice. By the grace of God, I don't want to live any other way. It is the higher life that is much talked about. The beatitudes. Let me get the meaning.

Do you know who the speakers at the business fair are? Me either. Lol. I kid. You can find them here and all the guests at the tweet chats that have been holding every Thursday. You can find them using these hastags #SMENigeria and #CNBizFair

Me and all these my causes and my work. The world is changing everyday and part of it pleases me while part of it saddens me. Lord help us. Cause us to be sensitive to your move and to be alert to your spirit. Help us to be led by our spirit and not our physical senses. help me live that higher life indeed. #Grace

There is a tweet chat happening in one hour. Join in and meet the technology company that gets you taxis at the snap of your fingertips. At good prices. I say so. And I am Ijebu when it comes to paying taxi fare. I want to get the best bargain possible because they are eating out of my car fund. 

Join them via #CNBizFair or via these two handles @connectnigeria and @uber_Lagos.www.twitter.com/uber_lagos

Ever been to a court?


I have not.
I did pass by it though.

It shows a woman in gold
She holds a sword in one hand and a pair of scales in the other
The sword represents judgment and the pair of scales represent mercy
It should represent fairness but life isn't fair, will never be, but God is merciful
Mercy is better than fairness
With mercy He judges you by His righteousness (if you have Jesus)
and by His judgment you are qualified for every good thing in him

I am still an idealist about many things
Both are meant to be applied
Justice and judgment I mean

These last few weeks I have been focused on politics and doing that I have seen the true side of many people. Can't say that I am surprised. I refuse to be cynical though
I have been insulted (I can handle that), maligned, the latest one is bullying
I can't say that I wasn't warned. One of my pastors warned me, I was going to do what s/he said but I believe that I should speak  out. Nothing happens by chance. God is still in charge of all things even politics. My mom has been begging me to take it easy, she say she knows Nigeria better than what they are saying because of history (Dele Giwa was bombed, wasn't he?).

I will take it wasn't in about 6 weeks time, other than that, I promise to be careful in my movement, get home early, follow the leading of the Spirit and to trust God. 

I pray that God's will be done.

I will vote. I have had my PVC since November, I suffered to get it. Did my homework et al. 

Here's how Lagos looks, stickers, fliers, bill boards, boards everywhere. We cannot take a break until the elections are over. Our minds are being assailed by good things, bad things, all things politics. This is the way it always goes, has always been. I pray that God has some good surprises for us this year. Something unusual.

Road Maps, Coordinates, Beacons, Destinations, the Holy Ghost Knows Them All

I always used to ask what kept Noah steadfast building an ark for 100 years. He must have had an element of crazy or he trusted God a lot.



I'd be reading Hebrew 11 and I'd say, how did his family react to his decision to build an ark when the rain (I don't think those people had ever experienced rain because the ground provided enough water to grow the crops) and he just kept on following  the measurements he had been given by God.

"Guess who was laughing when the doors of the ark was finally closed by God and the rain began to fall?"

That was my teenage thought. Knowing God better now, he wasn't laughing. Noah wasn't either. God was operating through Noah on earth. He is not willing that any perish. The one through whom God is operating on earth has the emotions of God. God must have wept.



God is just. He's also compassionate. An ark is still been built today. The church is still being built today. People are still being built today. People are still being built today. So that we will look great and accomplish something great. Maybe. That is not number 1 though. Our number 1 is to accomplish God's goal on earth. His agenda. Key into His end time agenda, reach the people for Him. Give God priority. He honours the man who gives Him priority. Let Him guide your thoughts, words and actions. Be conscious that Jesus is watching you, not to score you and to say, "Yes, I knew you would fail". That is not the Father's heart. He's watching over you, to strengthen your feeble knees and teaching your hands to be strong and directing your aim. He's watching over you, saying, " You go girl, I will carry you, I will help you, you will not lack anything, you are provided for, keep moving".

The crowd of witnesses are not silent either, they say, 'Keep moving, don't stop, don't worry you will always know what to do, just keep listening to the Holy Ghost. You will fulfill purpose. Nothing can stop you, keep moving. You are led by the Spirit of God. Nothing about what you do everyday is ordinary. You have heavenly reinforcements and heavenly support on your side. Your angels are on guard, always prepared, you are protected. All that is yours is protected. All that you require has already been provided.

Keep communication lines open and you will be fine.



#ThankYouGod
