Happy New Month!

I am not an ardent promoter of the ‘Theme for the month’ affair, not that I am against it, it is just what it is. But, I am so revved up for this month, as the Lord specifically dropped a word in my Spirit, and I will like to share with you, and hopefully, we can key into it prayerfully.

December is our month of laughter. The Lord is blessing us with laughter, and all who will get the news of His workings will laugh with us. God is invading our lives with new life, that will change who we are, in a manner that will be a point of lifetime recognition of His supremacy. He is crowning your steadfastness in pleasing Him despite the odds, with an astounding fulfillment of His promises to you. Amen. Genesis 21 v 6

Today’s WIGTW is one where we talk about certain things I have found out and kept to myself, not because I was being stingy with the knowledge, but because I felt, ‘Well, every christian knows this, why be a broken record’. But if there’s anything the Holy Spirit is teaching me and helping me do, is to let go of the mindset of assuming that everyone knows these things.

Wisdom Nuggets: November 2015..

If I had blogged as intended two weeks ago, I am pretty sure the title of the blog post would have been ‘Life Lessons from my CN Tower climb’, but that was two weeks ago, just before I was hit with a ‘big’ change that I did not really get a grasp of how it will affect me until it did. But, oh well! I am here today. Blogging.

I do not for a second think it was a coincidence that this happened just after I blogged about ‘Have You Left Your Place?’ Anyway, let it be known that God remains the King of my life, and stays continuously guarding His own [me], so I won’t leave my place. It may seem like a fall, but it was a repositioning.

I know courtesy requires that I tell you why I was away from blogging for most of November, but I cannot. It is not yet time to share. But in all honesty, I was really hurt, angry. Not angry to a point where I wanted to turn away from God. *cues in William McDowell’s ‘Never Going Back’* No! I was just at a point where all I did was ‘turn up’, not because I did not trust God, but I could not really explain how I felt, because I did not know what I was feeling, mentally, physically, emotionally, etc. I was pretty down, I had words to blog on, but there was no spirit. I wanted to put up a post informing you of the length of the time I would be away from blogging, but then again, I could not put a time span as to how long I needed. But as always, the Word of God is nursing me back to strength. Continue reading

Have You Left Your Place?

Just before you respond in the comments’ section, I will do us the honor of exploring this question.

Shout out to my brother for consistently having conversations about football with me, till I came around. I believe I am in the right place to say that I am more knowledgeable in the footie matters, compared to two years ago. Since our reunion, I have been almost up to date in the football world compared to being aware of what’s going on in Nollywood. Now that’s a big deal, if you really know me.

From the little I know so far, in every team [correct me if I am wrong], there are defenders, strikers, the goalkeeper, the midfielders and the substitutes. And for every match that is played, the injury or absence of one player can mar the opportunity of the success of the team. I have heard analysis of how the absence of a defender or striker led to the loss of a match; and if there is anything this has taught me, it’s the fact that the existence of their different parts, results in the success of the team. It weighs in on how well the team performs, provided that every player is pulling their weight. Continue reading

Yes, I am a Christian, and I do not have it all together!

 

d1‘Can we be honest with each other?’

It is no news that it’s easy to talk about the good, the merriment and successes we experience, but when it’s time to be vulnerable or transparent in sharing the mistakes we have made or sad experiences we have gone through, we close up. We mask up with smiles, dishing out the notion that everything is alright. Is it really?

Well, let’s just say that I admit that plain transparency is not my forte, but I will not sell the notion that I have everything together. Yes! I am a Christian, and I do not have it all together; hence the reason I need Superman Jesus Christ. Continue reading

Is There a Mix of Sorrow in God’s Blessing?

Hello!!!! *shines teeth*

Can you tell I am excited?*shines teeth again* I am very excited, but we shall talk about that later on in this post.

The blessing of the Lord brings wealth. Trouble doesn’t come with it. Proverbs 10 v 22 NIRV

Those were the words that kept popping up in my head weeks ago, more precisely, in the KJV: The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and He addeth no sorrow with it. I looked up different versions of this passage and fell in love with the New International Reader’s Version.

You know it is very easy to read the Word everyday, and become too familiar with it. There’s a good familiarity- being armored with the Word and constantly feeding on it. Now, that’s great! But there’s the bad familiarity- where the Word is read with no caution or anticipation of transformation because there’s a cloud of ‘I have read/seen it all’ preventing a hunger for a new revelation.

Full [Fool] Already?

I woke up three mornings ago, and the first thought that popped up in my head was: I definitely did not prepare for this. In those split seconds of that thought, I was thinking of how it happened that the weather changed all of a sudden. Yes! It is colder now, but I am still struggling to get a full grasp of how the sun has suddenly taken the function of lighting rather than heat. No exaggerations! True fact.

While I had this thought, that morning, I have had this post budding within me for the past one week, but I have been so exhausted. A lot just seems to be happening, and time is not at a stand still either, so I have decided to do better with my blogging; manage my time rightly and take on less responsibilities.

Oh! And did I miss out this information: My birthday is this week, Wednesday, 7th October, precisely. I am so excited. I do not know why. I am just excited and thankful to God for growth. I am entering into a new year where I am just marveled at how God’s realness has changed my life, that I am just not worried about a thing. I am just full of gratitude. Please pray for me, I am very expectant for this new year, not just expectant for my desires, but expectant in doing purpose and being a vessel for His glory.

Okay, let’s delve into the post of the day… Continue reading

But Are You Ready?

Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight..

The above line, I have been pondering on, since I last sang the hymn on Sunday. It is no news that I don’t take words for granted. This post brought to light this fact. Apart from the tune, the main backbone of the existence of songs are words.

I have sung this hymn: It is well with my soul, so many times, but you will agree with me that there are times when words just penetrate the surface; it’s no longer the ‘default recitation’, the thought behind the lyrics is being pondered upon; and in those few moments, you are immersed into the spirit behind the song.
