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.

RSQUARE: Random Reflections….

Dearest PT!

The last time I wrote a letter to you, I was addressing the fact that waiting/resting is not passivity. And that was in June, we are in September, and I think it is high time you read from me. Or honestly put; ‘I have too many thoughts to put under one heading/subject, so how about I just write a letter?’ Yup! Since, I have not had a ‘wisdom nuggets’ post up in a while, this will make up for the gap. [I hope]

When my birthday draws closer, I become exceptionally reflective. I like to think that I reflect a lot [like everyday]; but it’s double the measure during the month of September to October. So I have been doing a lot of reflection lately, and I want to share some in this letter. This reflection cuts across my growth and what needs improvement. I hope they resonate with you…..

WHAT SHE [THEY] SAID: Chastity for Men…

Hello Fam!

My unplanned absence [Forgive this girl, please *puppy face*] from the blog is over; and we are having a book review as I stated in the last blog post.

But before we get into the book, I want to pen down a few words about the ‘primary’ author of this book, Frances Okoro.

I cannot vividly remember how our paths crossed, what I do remember was the fact that I was just interested in another lady, who studied law and loves Jesus, and is not ashamed to let the world know. I dropped my 2 cents on her blog, and the rest…. [Frances will have to tell us]

Frances Okoro is a lover of Christ who is bestowed with a transforming gift of transparency, and she is not afraid to declare that the liberating and transforming power of God is real; and she is a living proof. Her gift of transparency, I call transforming; because you read her words of the works of Christ in her, and you are able to come to the realization that she has an intimacy with God. Apart from being a lady of inspiration, she is a jovial and fun-loving person, who loves travelling, adventure and never finds a reason to hide that smile. She is a passionate adherent of finding and fulfilling purpose, love through the eyes of God, purposeful relationships and being chaste. So it is no surprise that she worked hard, with the grace of God, to make this e-book available for the world to read, and be transformed. Continue reading
