standing still or not…

Not sure if you’ll want to read the whole thing..(2 Kings 6:24 – 30) so I’ll just give the summary of the gist

This king was angry with this country...and he decided…he was going to deal with them…normally.. you’ll expect that he’ll attack them and wipe them off the earth’s surface with the best brutal and cruel method available to him according to the technology of their times..but no..he decided he was going to surround the country…so that nothing went it and nothing came out..

When I came across this…my first deduction was …okay…well…fair enough..you stay outside..that’s fine..they’ll live their life in peace…no qualms.. do your thing and they’ll do theirs…but I was so so wrong…

Surrounding the country such that...no one and no thing could move out...and no one and no thing could come in was as cruel a method as anything else….because it was only a matter of time before…the head of a donkey became a valued commodity.. they started killing their own children so as to have something to eat,…it was terrible…

Its like this ..a position of stagnancy is a really dangerous one to be in..if these guys in that country had realized when the whole what the situation would metamorphose into ..maybe they won’t have been so cool about being confined in their own country and maybe they would have fought it…

Lets even drop the bible story…even from general knowledge we realize that anything that doesn’t... give or/and take is dead/going to die..the dead sea..is called dead cos it doesn’t flow anywhere..we all know it only living beings that take oxygen and give carbon dioxide..

o.k lets leave the things we can see and think about those we really cant see..like personal development, attitude and all that jazz …staying on one spot when we talk of stuff like this should be a taboo..for anyone who is serious about the life he/she has been given..

medically, biologically when we give birth to a babe..you expect the child to crawl at some point..and again…you expect the child to start walking latter..but we all know the alarm bells would go full blast if a 5 year old is still crawling..its the same thing with the man inside us..who is actually the real man..that real man is just in this body for a while…

people, I just want to urge us to feed this man, nurture this man, groom this man, discipline this man because this man inside is the real you…the real me is being housed in this body of mine…

….and don’t you dare say you will start changing things on the first of January…do what you’ve got to do and do it now…don’t remain on a spot..that king made sure those guys stayed put and that did the trick..

ship some things out of your life..and ship in some better things..

..luv

testy situations…

tests are different from temptation…

tests are meant to prove one, to see if they can move from one level to another…temptations deal with soliciting someone to do evil…./enticing someone to do evil.

Just like tests and exams we deal with in school are not really what we look forward to..cos they are not all that pleasant..i never looked forward to exams in school..i hope that changes in future.. J.. in the same way..i think life tests are not all that pleasant… and before I go too far I would like to add that not everybody in life has to undergo this tests I’m talking about..these tests are the ones we pass with faith, patience, love and steadfastness…

You know very well that the sellers in the kiosks that we buy stuff from at lunch time.. don’t sit to take tests with us in class…this is because they have not decided to go through the “school” we were enrolled in …so also ..if someone has not decided to live his life the same way I have decided to live mine..we will never and ever sit for the same life tests..cos we didn’t enroll in the same “school”..

…for instance...this sounds simple but..if the kind of life I have decided to live ..does not allow me to harbor a grudge in my mind/allow me to revenge when offended.. so when I am faced with this kind of situation..and I decide I won’t answer the question/situation by what my teacher has taught me..which is to walk in love, say my mind to the offending party and forgive,…then..i get an automatic 0/100…this simply means..i will need to take that test again..because it’s part of moving forward/higher..as a christian..we need to grow up and mature in our walk with God.. cos anything that does not grow dies..anything that’s stagnant..losses every form of essence its supposed to have..

..there are a million and one situations that confront us daily..you can fill in the blanks....and I think It would have been sweeter or easier..if these kind of tests are pre announced..but unlike in school..life tests are not pre-announced…i know we’ve been and we go through various situations, but if you have chosen to live your life by Gods word..then you need to remain faithful..knowing that the God is faithful..and won’t let any situation that’s going to finish you land at your doorstep…

If you believe God is good you know He is not the type of teacher that would bring questions meant for M.Sc students to you who is still in level 3 of B.Sc..

..now john 15 is coming to mind.. 1I AM the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser.

2Any branch in Me that does not bear fruit [that stops bearing] He cuts away (trims off, takes away); and He cleanses and repeatedly prunes every branch that continues to bear fruit, to make it bear more and richer and more excellent fruit.

3You are cleansed and pruned already, because of the word which I have given you [the teachings I have discussed with you].

4Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me.

5I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.  pls read the rest here

O.k peoplez..did i talk too much..? :) ..have a great week

the puzzles..

i live with a lot of questions

daily they come ... daily they leave

some leave with answers ... some just leave

some leave but..i know they'll be back, at some point..

they will ask of me an answer, for without an answer they won't go to thier graves..

why do they come , in the first place ... i wonder...

just at that point ... when i feel like i am the captian of my army and the emperor in charge

you come again ... just to remind me that theres such a thing as a puzzle....

maybe ..to tell me that life is all about puzzles...

puzzles ..puzzles puzzles... its so dark in here...

but i see the Light...and all of a sudden , I am not so clueless..

i feel as sure footed as a deer, the plot seems so clear....

i see the Light ... i am the emperor that decides what script is played out...

the questions fire me up and the puzzles inspire me...

they looked like gaints initially ... but they were inspired by a mirage of some sort...

i see clearly now...

mandatory lip job

If its not written ..then its not real…imagine the top guy in the corporation ..saying..if you can get this and that done by the middle of this year ..you’ll are getting a 35% pay rise…..if it wasn’t put down with attesting signatories..then if you do your part and time comes for him to do his/hers and CEO reneges, you know there’s nothing you can do, it’s a dead end...so even though, it might not be a the case 100% of the time, the written word is reliable, and it gives us an assurance

so my lip job thingie…was a mandatory one.. i noticed something like a pimple below my lower lip, the little point you cant see if I’m standing directly in front of you..o.k so it itched a lil and I scratched – i think ..and then by the next day it began to swell kinda..i knew it was a boil cos I had a number of them when I was little..but I was expecting the whole thing to swell outwards..not so, the funny thing decided it was goin to swell inwards..thats I got a swollen lower lip o..it wasn’t funny o..its was bout 3 times the normal size..i was in a hotel at the time..working in another state so I just stayed indoors..kept doing sms back and forth with my uncle who is a doctor…cos I couldn’t talk well…so he told me what to use..walked out to a pharmacy bought it and stayed indoors for the next two days..in between all these I was searching my heart..asking God whats up and declearing scriptures at the same time….(you don’t want to know all what went thru my mind..) lol…my lips..oh my lips..i now knew their worth more than ever… what if it doesn’t rupture, like he says it will, what if its not really a boil boil.. don’t worry, at worst you’ll go to Israel or india to get the lousy lump out…will ma lips ever look normal again…oh..my whole face might never be as fine..who did I offend, God..? ---all little whispers in ma head..

I wanted to see a doctor..by all means. it was a first time to the state..so I had to make sure I got a good one, made my contacts by sms mostly and ended up in-front of this female doc..she said it started as a pimple and maybe I irritated it and all that jazz …told her how I couldn’t laugh well and all that….she said it would go down, she said its good, that I’ll let the ladies rest,,I smiled and thot for a moment..why did she have to go there….but having my lovely lips back occupied all my thoughts…by the fourth day I peeled off a large scale of dead skin off my lower lip like a snake shedding its wareva ..then came the fresh one beneath..had to peel off another layer 2 days after that ( it was so ewwwy) …by now the size was about 60% of the abnormal size…i was happy..

Then it became really clear to me that..all I was looking for all along was just the assurance from someone believable..that all will be fine.. cos after i left the doc, i was more relaxed than i had been..in the last couple of dayz

Its totally natural..to want to have that assurance from God or other humans..when we are doing stuff together..thats why even God when he called Abram ..said I swear, I will bless you (hebrews 6: 13- 20) , cos along the line it might look like I have abandoned you…and that was exactly what I felt like..in between those 4 days..psalm 103:1 – 5, emphasis on 3,4 was one of the scriptures I continually meditated on…

..many times, we just want ti hear God say, “I swear you’ll be fine”…theres nothing like that assurance from someone..for those of us who are married you know what that assurance can make you feel like - it gives some real confidence.…its the assurance that a baby has, that his mum wont drop him on the hard floor from a 5 feet height…we need to trust God like babies …

We go thru stuff..and all we really want to know is that we’ll come out on top at the end…the scene looks so bad and all set for you to be the scapegoat…but God says I’m with you, even till the end of time….

…….And God has given us hundreds of assurances and promises in His word…but they don’t start to work for us ‘cos they are there ..we have to take them, believe and confess them..

ma two lips are fine now..fresh as ever..

validate and stick..

got this question on ma mind..in ma head...would really love to hear your views...
we will all admit that we do things we want to cos we are comfortable with them. ...well, most times..
o.k, so just how much approval or validation is needed..or how much is healthy.. maybe i should say..how much of the validation can we do without..
or i could say..how much stick do we need to get from people before you start to seriously re-consider the decision....
i also recognise that not all people's comments matter when we about to take a step or after we have done something important to us..
i hope this makes sense..somehow...please let me get your thoughts on this...i'll appreciate it....
hope you guyz are cool..i'm fine and can only get better..
peace n love

miss world/mr world..

Let not yours be the [merely] external adorning with [elaborate] interweaving and knotting of the hair, the wearing of jewelry, or changes of clothes; But let it be the inward adorning and beauty of the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible and unfading charm of a gentle and peaceful spirit, which [is not anxious or wrought up, but] is very precious in the sight of God. 1 Peter 3 – 4 Amplified Bible.

If you read this verse of the bible you will see that it’s easy to direct it at ladies…and that’s what people do almost all the time…maybe you can’t blame anybody for doing that cos even the writer was referring to ladies when he was putting down the original words….but we all know that it’s not only ladies that need to be/look smashing on the inside… let’s look at when Samuel went to David’s family house to go and anoint a king…Samuel saw the first son ( Eliab ) he jumped at him and said ahhhh..Surely…this must be the next duke of edinburgh …( assuming there’s no royal family)..God disappointed him big time and even lectured him a bit about not judging from the physical appearance…listen to what he said

When they arrived, Samuel took one look at Eliab and thought, “Surely this is the Lord’s anointed!”

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samual 16: 6 - 7 NLT

look at what peter under the influence of the holy spirit also wrote.. ..one thing we should all know is that we are not perfect at once, its like a journey..you move higher each day...

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.1 Peter 3:3 - 4 NIV

if we think that our bodies are our real selves..we are making a mighty mistake..as much as our physical bodies represent us and are a part of us..the real me is the one inside and the real you is the one inside…and I can only wonder how handsome , pretty, cute , loving, patient, wise that real me and you is…but we actually need not wonder, cos we know the things that we do/can do to make this inner me and you as dazzling as brangelina..lol, but do we do those things or we just think …since the me the whole world see’s is stunning I might as well look like an asylum seeker within….or is that an exaggeration..? I don’t know..just look at the person within…and make the right changes abeg ..or you could ask those that have been married for years...ask them if it’s the looks that keep the fire burning :) but without that there’s One that see’s the guy, chic, man, wife, husband, employee, entrepreneur within, that’s who he relates with…not my tailor-made attires..

from me to you. peace n love

he insulted the king…

Moroccan schoolboy, aged 18, has been jailed for insulting the king after replacing the monarch’s name with that of his favourite football club.(this happened a while back tho…) He altered the phrase: “God, The Nation, The King” on the school blackboard to read: “God, The Nation, Barcelona.” FC Bercelona says it has appointed a lawyer to look into whether they can help the boy, within the framework of Moroccan law. The family of the boy, Yassine Belassal, is appealing against the ruling ! Earlier in 2008, one man received a three year sentence for creating a mock facebook profile of the King’s brother, before receiving a royal pardon.

Now, as men are punished for “embarrassing” earthly kings,…. what would happen to the earth if the King of kings decides to punish men for daily embarrassment of His glory?. ..

The Holy Spirit wants you to celebrate the mercy of God today while dedicating your life to a greater walk in the beauty of His holiness. ‘cos If God was to mark iniquity, who will stand? We would have all been in prison houses….No wonder Psalm 25:10 says

The Lord leads with unfailing love and faithfulness all who keep his covenant and obey his demands.…

and Ps 59:16-17

And me? I'm singing your prowess,
shouting at cockcrow your largesse,
For you've been a safe place for me,
a good place to hide.
Strong God, I'm watching you do it,
I can always count on you
God, my dependable love.

this is point blank.. Ps 66:20 is the appreciation that must not depart from your lips daily…..:.

Blessed be God, Who has not rejected my prayer nor removed His mercy and loving-kindness from being [as it always is] with me.

Very well then did Jeremiah declare in Lam 3:22 “It is of the Lords mercies that we are not consumed”…..

That’s why no matter what you are passing through, always celebrate the fact of His mercies that is given to you ! As long as God’s mercy is available to you, there is nothing good that will not come your way..Don’t also continue in sin..cos He is also a consuming fire..

most words from our daily manner, thot i'd share..

actor nor dey die

Its baffling me, it’s..…I don’t even know how else to ventilate it..

Someone please tell me..how I’m supposed to hear a still small voice when I’m actually within a little storm..and there’s another one raging within. Now here comes the most amusing part, I can actually hear this still small voice..maybe that sounds a bit spooky, let me call it a sweet ‘lil voice..telling me I’ll be fine and not just fine I’ll be ahead of the pack at he end…the voice said again…you know I have not only come that you may have, but have an overflowing abundance of it (john 10:10)…again you know my thoughts and plans for you are to give you a future and a hope(Jer 29:11)and have you forgotten that nothing can get to you except it passes through me..?..as long as you remain in me though..the truth is that you are already a victor..but the facts I see and feel are not in sync with the truth…

post

Now I’m smiling..But it’s for my own good that I choose to hold on to the truth sweet ‘lil voice says, you know I’ll always cause you to triumph..look at you..do you remember the other day, the other month, the other year..when you thought no helper would show up, remember how it all worked out for you…just think back ..look at where you are now..remember how you later apologized for doubting and worrying….

Now I’m giggling…’cos as soon as I paid attention to the sweet ‘lil voice the storm became infinitesimally inconsequential. Now its clearer to me that this life..i live by the revelation that Jesus is my Lord and Shepherd..

Now I’m laughing..cos the storm is just there now, doing its thing..its got nothing on me now…look at me now..with the swagger of an eagle…His words say that even a nursing mother may forget her baby, but He wont forget me..(Isaiah 49:15)

Now I’am laughing like I’m high..cos I let Him fight my battles and here I stand victorious, knowing that all I am and all I’ll ever be is ‘cos of who God is. I’m reminded that actor nor day die 1 ..and in this case, I am Joseph and Arnold, I am Daniel and Jackie Chan I am David and James Bond..now It’s obvious I’m High….lol but hey ,truth is I’m a victor.

1.the lead actor never dies.

last words..? not yet


I wanna write don’t know exactly what I wanna write…there’s a lot of bits and pieces here and there….well , the other day I was thinking…what would I love my last post to be about..emotional me, I know …no I’m not that I’m planning to leave blogville , nah..i was just wondering.., there’s definitely going to be a last time we all do stuff.. a last time you eat, the last time I sing, the last time you drive, the last time I make a call, the last time you laugh and you can fill in the blanks ..that’s why I thought if there’s is a last time I do a blog post..would I know it? what if I knew it? what would I write about?..what would I tell all those that I pray for and think about almost every day since I started blogging? those I have fallen in love with, those that have let me be a part of their worlds one way or the other, what will I say to those that never left a comment or responded to one when I left it on their blog..to those that have made me laugh when I didn’t feel like, those that encouraged me when I thought there was nothing good about me….what would I say ?.. well, I would tell them all ?, I’ve got nothing but love for all of them I would thank them for their comments I would thank them for sharing their time with me, their thoughts and opinions, for their prayers I would thank them for tolerating me the times I was insensitive and not really appreciative of them, I would apologise to my ex all over again not pointing any fingers this time around, then I would tell them not to forget what’s important in life and more importantly not to forget that there is still a life after life and that as much as they enjoy life they shouldn’t forget that that life was given to them as a gift, and one thing we do usually is appreciate the giver of the gift. Okay, remember when you got a gift that you didn’t really like and you go “what is this?” in your heart, maybe you did a half-hearted thank-you very much to the giver so they won’t say you didn’t even appreciate it, like the shirts my dad used to buy for me, I just dumped them in the wardrobe,…. but there is this other gift you really appreciated, probably you were planning to get that stuff yourself before then…you do the thank-you and later when you are alone with the gift you keep appreciating the person and the gift..now think of life as a gift but with two added features that don’t come with other gifts…i) the giver sees all you do with the gift ii) the giver will ask for an account of how you used/spent the gift…need I expatiate on these two points…I’m not saying if you are not perfect..then buzz off, no! we all make mistakes, get disappointed, we all get our feathers ruffled, get taken advantage of..but what you want from life and what you want to do with your life is in your heart..nobody should try and deceive anybody, well, you can actually deceive the whole world, but then…everything is laid bare before the giver of life. get in tune with Him, get hooked on Jesus and get high loving Him. peace n luv..

25 issues I have ..lol

so i was tagged by reverence...so i had to put together 25 issues in my life so you guys can pray fro moi..lol

I don’t eat amala…(if you dont know what it is..then just move on..)

I roll with older people more, that’s cos I always seem to have a problem with the maturity of guys my age, especially the ladies...sorry..no disrespect in anyway..

I don’t work seriously until I know there’s a deadline and often get a kick from toying with the deadline…yeah I know it’s not so cool.
I never abandon or let go of friends that stepped to me first.
I am an arsenal fan
I can’t sleep with the lights on; else I’ll have to cover my face with a pillow.
I have a hopeless eye fetish.
I can identify a song I knew before by hearing if for just a second or even less; make it 2 seconds if you don’t believe me.
I love Jesus..lol
I like bananas
The sight of blood injuries and sores can make me sick in an instant.

I do a lot of buying on impulse, I’m getting better though.

I have been driving for close to 10 years but have never driven interstate.
My English teacher used “a cold glass of milk” in a sentence when I was in J S 2 and I’ve never stopped taking one since then.

I don’t know how to pretend.
I change barbers immediately they start acting familiar.
I have and prefer having older people as my friends.
I develop a natural dislike for anything that’s hyped or should I say overhyped.

This is the fourth year running since I’ve fallen ill in anyway (thank you fada)…apart from the occasional flu, when I expose myself.

I beat a classmate once and his nose bleed, I think it was when I was in primary 2, I remember cos my dad told me…not like I’m proud of it, but I guess I had fun then….

I can’t buy a car with no leather seats or I love leather seats in cars.

Scooping beverage and milk into a mug is never 100% successful for me, 9 out of 10 times, some of the beverage pours on the table.

I don’t change my mind about something/someone very easily just as I don’t make up my mind easily.

I didn’t know how to dance until after about two years in the university, and no, it had nothing to do with what I was studying then.

I don’t like controversy/drama i.e. as mischievous as I may be, I like keeping things simple..

ok and this one....i really lov books but once the book has to do with "school" i start to just tolerate it...


thanks so much for smiling , laughing, frowning and every other thing you did when you read..
so i'm tagging believer and jaycee and geebee and afrobabeeeeeeeeeeeeee. 1

as random as it gets

wow....so my year has been wonderful so far…..not been all honeymoonie but I’m so thankful for the direction God has been giving me……I said it on someone’s blog and I’m gonna say it again..2008 just had to go the way it went for me to have the 2009 that I’ll be forever be grateful for..
…was in the barber shop and after the pleasantries the guy gets to business..well, I told him what I wanted and he was working then he starts telling me how he has stopped smoking..which reminded me of my first post this year..he said if someone told him he wouldn’t smoke for 1 week he would never have believed the person…and he said its almost four weeks now…I smiled cos deep inside I was happy for him…a while later he starts telling me how he has started paying his tithe even when its just ten naira..now you might think I have preached to him before but nah..I have never, and I was just wondering why did he think I was the kind of person that would encourage him to pay his tithe….

In my head, I think the funniest type of physical death a person can die is death caused by yawning..imagine an autopsy result reading ……. . cause of death : yawning.… and also in my head the meanest thing you can write on someone’s facebook wall is “pay me my money” ..what do you think..?

So I met my first blogger and that’s all I’m going to say..okay let me add..i was happy I met her..i present to you writefreak..it was fun, and going by this experience I’ll love to keep meeting bloggers..thats all i'll say for now..

I think I’m lonely… but I think I’m fine…and I choose to say, I’m doing great
i'm just me trying hard(not by power or might) to keep it real with HIM, you know who.., yeah, my maker, the reason why i live, the reason I can face tomorrow. I'm still young, but I have been through somethings, and after everything I come to conclude,my life can only make meaning to anybody, in His hands, I am so afraid to run the show of my life by myself, because I know that the result is a guaranteed 101% failure. Therefore , each day I try to see things the way He wants me to see them, no matter how trivial the situation may look like. I love Him, but at the end I feel so unworthy, because He loved me first, and I feel like there is nothing I can do to love Him back the way He has loved me, but I know just like David said in one of his psalms, I've got a good thing going with Him, and I am not letting go. (the message bible) .I love you Jesus. It is this love that gives me all the value that I’m worth. Lets look at it like this. Look at God's love for us with the love of a little girl with her favorite doll. That doll might be threadbare & falling apart at the seams. The doll itself has no value at all, except to that little girl. To her, it is priceless, the most important object in the world. The doll itself has no value, but the girl's love gives it infinite value. Likewise, it is God's love that gives us worth, even though we are not worthy of that love.
so no matter what it is goin on around us or in the world, lets remember, theres an end, and that when the real winners are recognised, dont win now and be something less than a winner in the end...selah

what's insanity..

I want some things to turn out differently this year and the good thing is that I have a measure of power to influence these things…and as a wise man once said .. “ the definition of insanity is to do the same things or do things same way and expect a different result” think about it..it actually sounds like a good definition…


Maybe there’s someone like me reading this; like me in the sense that I think I know somethings and don’t practice them…which can mean that I actually don’t know what I think I know…it has also been said that the amount of information/knowledge you have at your disposal is what makes you different from the fella next to you..where exactly am I going with all these…?
I think/ know that deep inside us …we all know what things we need to pay more attention to this year and some other things that don’t need all the energy we give to them and finally the things we even need to stop giving attention to..i’m not an advocate or fan of new year resolutions, but some how the inevitable urge to appraise the whole year gone by still catches up with me…
So I looked at the last year and its really obvious I need to get better at somethings..(lord help me)….but I am greatful for the lessons I had to learn in the past year..the process was not really pleasant but I can now say I’m a berra person..(thank you father)..
For the year ’09 I have notes of the major goals for the major areas of life that I must sort out and I’m confident that my Helper is ever present. { career wise, spiritually, financially and the relationships in my life –including the blogville ones..;-) }…
So what are you living for?..this is not a matter of ’09..this is a life question..its what you are living for that will determine how you live each year..somewhere ,somehow , there’s a fraudster planning on how to get better, a prostitute thinking of how to get better at her business and a pastor, writer, husband, politician all thinking and working towards getting better at what they do, so please don’t be left out.


so people, lets go on and live this life with gratitude 'cos its a gift .



have a fulfilling '09 of God's grace and new possibilities.... .muah
