What does the rest of 2015 hold in store for us?



The answers to this question is well written in the Bible. Find out with daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly reading by meditating on the word of God in the bible.

I know some people believe in Horoscope but I believe in the Word of God because the Word of God is active and it never fails.

It is only through the reading of the bible that we can see that 2015has being a year of welfare and not for evil. Count your blessing or watch the Daily News, then you will see how blessed or fortunate you are.  

I believe that when we daily seek God in the remaining 69 days left in 2015, all those things (money, job, good health, husband, wife, child, house and prosperity) will be added on to us. However, let us be careful because the heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.

Do not boost in yourself and say, today or tomorrow I will travel to this town or that country and spend ............... yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. Instead you ought to say, If the Lord wills, I will live and do this or that.

Simply put your trust in the Lord because our systems is failing, wait on God as I am waiting on Him and I believe He shall renew your strength; we shall mount up with wings like eagles; we shall run and not be weary; we shall walk and not faint.
In Jesus name Amen!

Love your neighbour:Whose feet are U washing today?

Love your neighbour as you love yourself (Mark 12:31)

But we always ignore this first part of the verse and work hard to accomplish the” loving ourselves part “am not trying to attack anyone, just stating the facts. How many of us really know the people that live around us? It does not matter whether you live in a posh area, shared apartment, and town or in the village. Christian or no Christian, how many of us take the time to say Hi? Hello?  Or ask their neighbour how they are? Some people will claim they are conservative that is why they mind their own business. 

Friends we live in a selfish fast paced world where everything is about us-what do I want? Where do I want to live? How much money do I want to earn? How many kids do I want to have? What’s in it for me! I am sorry to say this-we have become too busy pursuing happiness and making money and getting Qualification’s after qualification’s but forget how to live life to the fullest!

Some people go to work in their posh cars with tinted windows, close themselves in their glass windowed office, ride back home in the evening to enjoy the comfort of our houses without as much as a hello to the gateman that opens your gate every morning, or a smile to the checkout assistance who scan and bag your goods when you went to the supermarket on your way home from work.

Some of us are so busy with life that we have no time for our own families, we are just “chasing the pounds “as my friends would call it. We go from one promotion to the next trying to beat everyone climbing the corporate ladder, but for what? So that you can seem better than other people? You want to be richer than the rest of your friend or family?

Oh, I don't live this kind of lifestyle, ok, I hear you, but even in that small flat of yours how many times have you passed your neighbour or neighbours kids without as much as a smile on their way, do you even know their names ?? Yet you call them neighbour… when I started living on my own, all I want was a room to call my own, so I work hard and get it and its exciting and beautiful, but after sometime I wanted something more because I just don't want to share toilet with anyone, I just want to live comfortable, so I started wishing for two bedroomed that I don't really need. I always told God that if he would give me a bigger place I would make it a place where people could come and feel at home and sheltered and cared for. God gave me my wish but I failed to keep this promises and God took it away from me to teach me lesson on (Giver 109) stuffs that will make me to see many good days. Friends the reason why we don't get much is because we don’t give much.

I see depressed people everyday chasing dreams getting frustrated with God. They pray, fast and calling the name of the Lord yet the answer He gave them 10 years ago is still there waiting to be acted upon, giving of your time, of your money, of your possessions, of yourself….next time before you pray and ask God how comes your life is messed up, serve other people and see the difference it makes in your life when you humble yourself by giving people your love, support and your time. The thing is; we live in a society where it’s more easier and acceptable to receive than to give.

I read a story about somebody who is getting married, but the partner did not know that the other person he/she is marrying is HIV positive; the dreadful part of it was that; there is someone close to both couple who knew one of them is HIV positive but she is not ready to tell because she feels it’s not her place to do so? One thing I know is that when two are joined together no one should separate but this two are not joined together yet, however, we find this kind /types of cases around us all the time and we decides to keep our mouths shut, not to interfere, we always claims its not in our places to tell or afraid of being the bad person…..please tell me when did we start handing over death sentences to people? When did we lose our moral responsibilities, when did we stop caring? When did we begin to give up on the human race forgetting that we are actually giving up on ourselves?? It’s always about me, yet your neighbour is about to faces death as you watch, yet their kids engage in sex and alcohol as you watch, yet life slips away from them as you watch….

This piece is especially for the ladies who live on their own…..too busy working, too busy with the ups and downs of life competing with so and so, to acquire this and that, I've asked myself this question- if I was living alone and I was to die in my sleep today who will find me first? People from work will call of course, my sister might think something is up but she wouldn't rush to my place first because she lives in Africa and I live in Europe,……my neighbour would go on with their lives until they discover that something is not smelling right……people let us not be selfish with our time, our money, our possessions….don't live life on the fast lane to acquire earthly goods that have no heavenly use, let’s not forget the greatest commandment of all, whether you are Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, atheist or catholic….Love your neighbour as you love yourself. The greatest example we see of service and love is when Jesus washed the feet of his disciples…..so whose feet are you washing today??

Dear February

 

With God by my side I take a step of faith into the unknown, a new month, a new canvas and a new exploits. I know I am a vessel to be used in this month, so as I enter into February with Grace, Favour and Mercy, I pray for strength, courage and obedience to keep the commands of the Lord in Jesus name. Amen!

So here are 20 things to know about me as we begin this new journey.

#1. If I were a time of day, I'd be evening; between 9pm-12 midnight I have a thing about late night calls, saying i love you and good night to those who melt my heart (like my sister)
#2. If I were a day of the week, I'd be Sunday eagerly waiting for the church second service and to catch up with friends in the evening at cells group, then later top it with a movie marathon on YouTube till the wee hours of Monday morning, it always sad to say goodbye to Sunday. 
#3. If I were a month, I'd be February because I was born in February; I always feel love, something new and fresh in this month and it so unique out of all the 12 month in the year because month has 28 days in common years or 29 days in leap years. I am blessed and I know it.
#4. If I was a piece of furniture I would be a bed, I love my sleep, reading my bible and some interesting books  in the comfort of my big bed, knowing that that’s my space… spend most of my time there, dreaming, praying, chatting,  writing, planning and crying.
#5. If I were a direction I'd be south - western, if you live in Lagos then the lagoons and creeks are to die for, so relaxing, refreshing. I love my country.
#6. If I were a tree, I’d be two trees timber and aloe Vera. Timber does not grow with ease, the stronger the wind, the stronger the tree.  Aloe Vera is also called the miracle plant which can survive for years through stormy weather…the story of my life.
#7. If I were a musical instrument, I'd be the saxophone, for that’s how I would love to be loved and handled.
#8. If I were a kind of weather, I'd be the sunny weather after the rains; the cloud clears; the sun brightens the day which is a sign of hope.
#9. If I were a Colour, I'd be red, orange  and yellow always lighting up the room with my smile, giving hope to those in a storm that one day it will all be in the past, forgotten, forgiven, a clean slate, a new love, something new and flourishing.
#10. If I were an emotion I'd be compassion. It’s something beyond my control.
#11. If I were a sound, I’d be the sound of the bongo because I love to dance rumba.
#12. If I were a flower, I'd be a rose so delicate and protective with its thorns, I believe such is a love of a man to a woman. A rose is low in price and yet so rare to receive, I want my rose today not on my birthday or Valentine’s Day.
#13. If I were a fruit, I'd be a pineapple, Satsuma and strawberry.
#14. If I were a place, I'd be Paris, its rich culture, friendly people and quality cheese and food to die for !
#15. If I were a room in a house, I’d be the bathroom/toilet. It’s the only place I can run from the world and no one would follow me. In the bathroom, I do have my own quiet moment; I sing new song to my heavenly Lord especially when I am having my bath, I laugh at situation and talk to my heart. 
#16. If I were a scent, I'd be the smell of the earth when the raindrops hit the ground…its beautiful.
#17. If I were a body part, I’d be the heart, for through my heart I seek my God, feel all things and touches all things.
#18. If I were a song, I'd be Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) -It is a reminder to continue trusting THE LORD no matter what may come in life and we can always know that HE is watching over us.
#19. If I were a pair of shoes, I'd be gorgeous 4 inches stilettoes to show off my beautiful and wonderful made cat walking legs.
#20. If I were a story, I’d be a story of Love; For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him would not perish but have eternal life.

Happy New Month to all my blog readers. xx

You Came To My Rescue (Your love came down)


Glory to God in the highest for His love endures for ever (Psalm 107:1) I thank God for giving me the understanding and the ability to grasp this song that was sang by Christy Nockels.

I'm forever grateful to God for His love over my life. I join the Psalmist to sing, I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live….(116:1).”

If It hadn't been for His love and mercy, what would have become of me? If you and I can think deeply of what He has done, stilling doing and many more that shall be done-we all will exalt Him deeply (Phil 4:6).

Verse 1
Freedom is a song I sing, I can't contain the joy You bring, 
All because of Your great love, Now I live
I was dead, but now I breathe, Awaken to Your grace so free, 
In the power of Your cross, Now I live

Pre-Chorus
Salvation, my freedom, You gave Your all for me, 
Forever You made a way for me

Chorus
And You came to my rescue, You came to my rescue Calling on Your name,
Calling on Your name, Love came down, You came to my rescue, You came to my rescue, Calling on Your name, Calling on Your name, Love came down, Your love came down, Your love came down, Your love came down

 Verse 2
 You're the light in the darkest night, You lead me through the storm and fire
 When all around my hope gives way, You're my rock
 You taught me how to sing Your song, You've overwhelmed me with Your love
 You set my feet to dancing now,You're my God

Do you ever feel like nobody likes you or really cares



                     


Do you ever feel like nobody likes you? I feel that way sometimes, too. I think it's natural to want people to like you. I mean, who doesn't want friends? But I struggle with wanting everyone to like me. And when they don't, it's easy for me to feel bad about myself.

When I was in primary school, primary six to be precise, I used to have this big group of friends, and in that group, there's one boy who hangs out mostly with the girls. Now I was raised with sisters, and I usually feel more comfortable hanging around with girls than with boys. And most of the time, girls feel comfortable hanging out with me, too. So I was starting to feel kind of hurt that the girls were hanging out with this guy and not with me because I kind of think, I am brilliant, nice, cool and fun to be with.

One day, it really started to bother me. I crawled in my bed and just started crying. I was like, "What's wrong with me? Why doesn't everyone want to be around me? Am I just not good enough? Am I just not likable?" I came up with all these reasons why people wouldn't want to hang out with me as much as I want. For instance, I have a strong personality, and I can be very passionate. I'm also very open, and I'll say what's on my mind. That's not always the best thing. Openness is good, but sometimes I'd be better off keeping my mouth shut. I figured if I changed my personality, people might like me better.

The day after my crying session, I decided I would try to be sweet and quiet—to be the girl everyone would love. But that just wasn't me.  Something is not right, And I thought, this is nonsense. It finally came to me that this whole thing wasn't about me. People want to be with who they want to be with and I can’t force people to be with me all the time. Those girlfriends of mine weren't choosing to not be around me. They didn't hate me. They were just hanging out with another person. That's the way life works and that’s the way it goes.

I guess what I've learned is that not everyone is going to love me. Not everyone is going to want to be around me all the time. It doesn't mean there's anything wrong with me. And it doesn't mean there's anything wrong with them. People are just different. Sure there are things about me that I need to work on. But I don't have to try to be everyone's best friend. I only need to be the person God made me to be.

If you are someone like me, all I can say is, please stop beating and condemning yourself, God created you and love you just the way you are. However, if you are too open and abrupt just like me, you might need to bridle your tongue at times. See what the word of God says in the book of first Timothy 2:9-15-  Likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works……… 

Yes, self-control is the key. I only need to be the person God has made me to be by controlling myself (mouth, thought and action) through the help of the Holy-spirit. Yes, myself because in Christ I live, move and have my being. My life should be Christ like.

May God help us all and have a nice day!


AMS:Check Your HEART!!!


                                       
 Last year December, I was asking God for  instruction and direction on a particular situation and the question I asked God was – God what must I do for you to change this situation that stand as a stumbling block in my life? The answer was, your heart must be fixed on me.  Jeremiah 29:13 to 14 says that: You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, declares the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.



At the beginning of January 2014, I was discussing some stuff with one of my family friend and I asked her to pray with me. And she said check your heart! I was really angry and I though why will she say something like that to me, after all I only ask her to pray with me. Or did she think I've backslide? I took it too personal, for days I was pondering on those three words (Check your heart) and again and again the word started echoing in my ears. Just of resent I begin to understand the message she was trying to pass across to me.

In Mark 7:21-23: Jesus pointed out the fallen condition of our hearts “From within, out of men’s hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and make a man unclean.”

You see, I may not understand my own hearts, but God does. He “knows the secrets of the heart” (Psalm 44:21). Jesus “knew all men, and had no need that anyone should testify of man, for He knew what was in man” (John 2:24-25). Based on His knowledge of the heart, God can judge righteously: “I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings” (Jeremiah 17:10).

Our heart is the core of our being, and the Bible sets high importance on keeping our hearts pure: “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life” (Proverbs 4:23).


The woman with the issue of blood had her heart fixed on Jesus and the fountain of blood coming out of her body for years dried up during an encounter with God. She didn't mind the filthy smell that was oozing out of her, in the midst of multitude that were following Jesus-all she wanted was her healing (Mark 5:25-29). Until our heart is right with Him, we will keep attracting garbage.

In the book of Mark 10:46-52. I can hear the blind Bartimaeus said, “If I don’t get the attention of Jesus today, I may not have the opportunity again.” So he screamed, “Jesus, the son of David, have mercy on me.” On seeing his heart (Bartimaeus), Jesus stood still to change his story. When He sees your heart beat for Him, He’ll stand to reverse your case. Jesus said to him, “your faith has made you well.”

The morale of the whole story is that the heart is the spiritual part of us where our emotions and desires dwell. This simply means wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.


May God help us by His grace to prepare our heart and to set our face like a flint, to study to show ourselves approved to God in 2015.  Amen! 

Stay blessed!

5 things that I tend to take for granted and 10 things I am thanking God for in my life.

5 things that I tend to take for granted
1.     I sometimes take the people who love me for granted and they are usually the people I love too. The categories of people who topped these lists have to be my family. They are always there for me. Well, not like they can choose to not having me as their family member (Lol), but they tend to be more understanding and compassionate towards me. I can show the ugliest side of myself with complete assurance that they would just accept it and never turn their backs at me. And I definitely owe them my life.
 
2.     My limbs (arms and legs): Thankfully, I am blessed with the use of all my limbs. It is so easy to take our bodies for granted, especially our limbs, but when you think about it, almost every single thing we do in a day is facilitated by these body parts. We wash our body and brush our teeth with our arms and hands, type on our laptops, make our meals, feed us, and on and on. And everywhere we've ever been, we've gotten there because of our legs! Whether it be walking to the bus stop, shopping in the supermarket, or something as simple as getting up in the morning and getting ready for work.
 
3.     A home with running water and electricity: For a long time I was unhappy with my living conditions due to circumstances that were beyond my control. I kept focusing on all the bad things and discomfort I was feeling because of my situation and it kept me constantly unhappy and down. Lately I've been trying to change my mindset and instead to be grateful for the positive within the situation. The fact that I have electricity 24/7, running water in the taps, hot water, beds and covers and pillows, and heater when it gets very cold (which is often) is a lot to be grateful for. While I am still striving for a more comfortable homely home, being grateful will help me get through this phase.
 
4.     My health: Recently, my health started to sound the alarm, and I was alarmed. Good health is one thing I always take for granted, and I feed myself with rubbish food, sleep at ungodly hour only to be sleep-deprived the next morning and started the day with negativity, and think I am young and healthy enough to not rely on regular exercise to  keep my good health. Argh. I’m totally regretting my incongruous teen years now. Lol
 
5.     The ability to read: This ability is one that is so easy to take for granted because it is assumed that everyone can. However, not everyone has had the opportunity to learn to read, and many of those who do, suffer from disorders that make it very difficult for them. Being able to read has gotten me through all the years of my education, allowed me to communicate with others, find a passion in writing, as well as the many little things we don't think twice about: filling out forms, reading instructions, even reading for pleasure which I do voraciously.
 
 
10 things that I am thanking God for….
 
 
1.     I am Grateful to God almighty for written my name in the book of life.
 
2.     For My family. Without them, I wouldn’t be here.
 
3.     Myself. I am thankful that I love myself. I am thankful that I appreciate me. I am thankful for the eyes to see, the nose to smell, the mouth to talk and eat, the ears to listen, the heart that beat… you get the drift.
 
4.     My health: To have strength to wake up every morning to face the day’s opportunity and to make the change that will gradually come is a blessing that money can never buy. Thank God for the gift of life…..
 
5.     My friends. They spice up my life, and we trust each other in times of crisis. I am thankful to have groups of trusted and close friends!
 
6.      My Experience and passion to read has opened my eyes and mind on how to be a good discipleship of Christ and a lot more things. I am thankful that experience is shaping and building me right now and for the future. My passion to read and write has made up a huge and important part of my life in an unimaginable ways. I feel thankful that I love to read and learn.
 
7.     The earth; the sun, the wind, the rain. I am so, so thankful for the air that I  breathe in and out, the beautiful place to reside, and so many more to be grateful for. Thank you for having me here God!
 
8.     My job. The kind of Job I am doing right now is not my complete passion, but it opens doors. I am a stronger person with greater resilience, and I am extremely grateful for the chance to accept the challenge and grow bigger than the obstacle. I felt accomplished and the more I uncover unimaginable things about myself, the more I love me more.
 
9.     England. I am thankful for living in the United Kingdom and not anywhere else because education, clean water, a roof over my head and plenty food on the table are amenities and not scarcity.
 
10.   Future and Now: I am thankful to have ideas on the directions which I can grow to become in the future. And Now, I am extremely thankful for Now. I am alive and breathing now and that is the most important thing to feel grateful for.
 
                                         “I’m grateful for everything in my life.”
Thank You Lord!!!
 
Thankfulness is one very positive emotion which is incredibly important to have and to practice in everyday life. If a person feels no gratitude, not even the slightest in everyday life, this person is basically a very, very unhappy person.

AMS: God Will Make a Way When and Where There seems to be No Way


I think we have all been in situations where it seemed like there was just no way out. For example:
A young father of two is diagnosed with terminal disease. Suddenly the wife is forced to be both mom and dad. She asks: “How am I going to survive without my husband?”
 
A  60 years old man, widower with 2 teenage daughters have been work in the same company for 35 years, one day he receives the news that his company has gone bankrupt. All of a sudden his job is finished. His pension is gone. His life savings will soon be gone. He wonders: “What does the future hold for me at my age?”
A CEO of a company runs off with his receptionist leaving his wife and four children heartbroken and without help. She asks: “What have I done to deserve this?”
A follower of Christ, a beautiful lady, full of character and grace but no man has  approach her for marriage and all her friends are getting married. She cries: “God why have you forsaken me”
A married woman, with no child, looking for the fruit of the womb for almost ten years. People have mocked her, questioning her fertility and her husband patience is running out. She cries: “Lord when is my turn”
A University master graduate, no job, no home, no hope and its looks like his dreams are slipping away and his faith in God is shaking … He asked: My God why have you left me”
You may even be facing one of these problems right now.  It’s a tough situation to be in, right?
But during those moments do not allow yourself to forget how great our God is. Isaiah 54:7 - For a small moment have I forsaken you; but with great mercies will I gather you.
Yes I know, bad news, catastrophes, diseases, unfair circumstances, terrors are all around us. It can hit any one of us at any time. It can leave us questioning which way to turn. It can lead us to ask: “Where is God when I need Him?” Trust me I have once asked God this question.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not pretending to know all the answers. I know all these above examples are real, and unfortunately, becoming more common every day in our society today. It’s a reasonable question and one that requests for an answer. What better place to find the answer than in the bible. The bible is complete!
I’ve had times when I’ve lost,  I’ve hurt, I’ve suffered, and I ask, “Where is God in all this?”
Well, one of the most difficult lessons I learnt recently in my spiritual walk is that even when bad things happen and I don’t understand why, I can always trust God to be present and working on my behalf. Even in the worst tragedies, I still serve a God who sees and cares.
In this beautiful life of mine I have learnt how to recognize that God is present and at work. And I need to always wait on Him because I never know just how He is going to make a way for me. The Bible tells us that God often reveals Himself to His people in the most unexpected ways.
My testimony- Sometimes, there are miracles. Sometimes diseases are healed, disasters are prevented, and impossible situations are overcome. When this happens, we had better be on our knees saying, “Thank you Lord!” For almost three years now, I have been  going through a tough time, my reaction was/ is I just don’t want to listen to people’s viewpoint about my circumstances; all I want is their support and kindness toward me. In these situations that seem there is no way out, all I want is someone close by, who cares and can be sympathetic. Well, what better person to have by my side than God Himself?

The truth is, the one constant for those who have faced a difficult time in their lives and have remained close to the Lord through it all is the fact that whether there was a miracle or not, God still showed up in a powerful and enigmatic way. God still makes a way even through trials, sickness or suffering by revealing His divine presence. We may not know when, where, or how, He’s going to show up, YES He will. The main thing is to reach out to God for help through our praise, thanksgiving and prayers. Since He’s always there, we’ll eventually find Him. He owns the keys to that door!


As a child of God, it’s important for us to know that God is not troubled by our life circumstances. Remember as He is in heaven so are we here on earth! He does not MOVE in fear because our life circumstance is too much for Him to bear.  No!  He is in fact BIGGER than our life circumstances. Our God shall never abandon us when all seems lost, because not only is He a merciful God, but a faithful God.


Moses and the Israelites know what it feels like to be trapped with no way out because they had a Red sea before them and a great army of Pharaoh behind them.  The Israelites were afraid, but not God. We all know the story; God being the great God He is, split the Red Sea and made a way for Moses and the Israelites. That same God is this at work and what He did then He can do now.  He made a way for them and I have no doubt that He can make a way for YOU and ME. Is just that it might not be the way we expected it to be. Yet, trust God, because He always makes a way where there seems to be no way. Amen!

 
 
Yours candidly, Alaba J

AMS: God is my place of safety (Oluwa ni abomi)

Isaiah 32: 2 says, And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a cover from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.

God is our place of safety in the tempestuous days. In everyday life, we come across stormy situations in which we become confused and worried about, what we shall do about the situation. Then we start questioning ourselves by saying shall the Lord be as a hiding place for me from this conditions or situation or will he covers me from this shame?

 Sometimes our life could be considered as a dry land without any hope. I have been there and I just wanted to encourage you that God CAN and SHALL fill your life today with water both physically and spiritually. You may be wondering, is there a God who is listening to my prayers? Why are my prayers returning back to my lap unanswered? 

Let me encourage you that, whenever the pain of staying in a dry place becomes too hard to handle, remember that even suffering has its gifts. You may not see it now, but you shall reap it later on and it will wipe away every tears with sweetness and joy.

 And, If peace is God that created people, peace is the prince of peace and I believe he has giving us strength to live out his peace in all situations. I pray peace shall prevail over our home, and our house will be a permanent dwelling for us. In every walks of our life, He will be as a shadow of a rock in a weary land because He is the ROCK OF AGES. He mighty delay and late in our sight but He never fails to deliver.

 AMEN!
