Storyteller God

Have you ever wonder why certain things happen? Especially things that are very unexpected –both good and bad. Some of these things, we don’t even have an explanation for them, we don’t get to understand until they have run their course. I’ve come to understand that as much as we may not understand everything going on in our lives, there is a writer behind the scripts of our lives who has the pen writing a story. Moses in the bible had an interesting childhood. He was born in a period when the king was against firsts born male children. I’m wondering: Why would God even allow an innocent child to be born in this period of time? Good for him, he had a good mother who kept him. However, the pressure was high and he had to be let in to the river for fate to determine the next course of his life. Fortunately, he’s picked up by the daughter of the same king who planned to kill him.
It’s interesting that the same house from which his death was planned, his life was preserved. He got to be bab…

Step Down and Step Up - 2

Often times God will require us to step down from certain things we engage ourselves in so that we can step up to what he has for us in the present(moment).
Saul of Tarsus lived a certain kind of life where he persecuted Christians and one day Jesus had to stop him. It’s interesting that he actually went to get a letter of permission to continue his work against Christians in Damascus. I will tag this one of the minor things he stepped up to. His major goal was to persecuted the Christians. As God would have it, Jesus appeared to him and it’s interesting that he did not just recognize that Jesus was Lord even before Jesus introduced himself but they (Jesus and Saul) also has a conversation. This points to the fact that it doesn’t matter how distant you have been from God, he can speak to you and you can speak back to him. In Act.9:6, Saul asked Jesus ‘…Lord, what wilt thou have me do?’ Saul was ready to sign up for what Jesus would have him do. At some point as he answered Gods call,…

Step Down and Step Up - 1

Often times we are busy with one thing or the other and sometimes feel less accomplished(fulfilled).I (beg to say) that sometimes it’s because there are somethings that we have taken up responsibility for that we really shouldn’t. Somethings that are not exactly as important as what we were really made for.

Some of the time we actually know these things that we aren’t meant to be living in at the moment. They are not necessarily ‘bad’ or negative in the real sense but definitely would slow you down from progressing in your course. If you don’t step down from them, they’ll keep you from stepping up to the life you are meant to live. The life that brings fullness and satisfaction. I believe that God desires for us to live full lives, however there are decisions we have to make and stick to in order to experience the fullness of life God has for us. The children of Eli in the bible had several things they were involved with but in the midst of all these they failed in doing the most imp…

Junked Up?

The other day I wanted to upload something online with my phone but I couldn’t because I didn’t have enough space.
So I went through my pictures and tried to delete some of them. I realized that there were a lot of pictures to be deleted -from the ones I had no idea when they entered my phone, to the ones I saw no relevance to. Haven deleted them all, I had space enough to not just upload my picture but even some more extra space.
Sometimes we have ourselves clogged by many junks. Sometimes they get attached to our live without us knowing. At the end of the day, we carry a lot of baggage and junk that occupy the spaces we need to do better things with our lives and energy.
We end up not having space enough for ourselves in our own lives. Not because we don’t have the ability to free ourselves from them but because we have not given thought to them.
I realized it’s a continuous thing that’ll always have to be done.
I hope you give thought to things you allow in your life; and have a great …

FOOD…..GOOD FOOD

:) I’ve not written in about a month now because I needed to focus on some other things.
Lately, my attention has been drawn to food. I mean, gooooooood food. The kind of food whose appearance gives some Jesus Joy. You know what I mean? Sighting them a lot makes one absolutely crave for them. While some of them take only a little while to get prepared, some of them take quite some time. However, if you ever take your time to prepare them, you’d be so glad you did. These are the kind of food that cost quite some amount (to pay for) in a good restaurant. 

Cancer

So today is world cancer day and in honor of this and the love of humanity, I thought to write a little poem.

Seriously!
You came into this world
Called  earth
You came like a cell in the form of good
But ravaged as evil
Little by little,ravaged the body parts of the living Fighting finances
Fighting peace
Fighting confidence
Fighting happiness
And like you invaded this space called earth
Cancerous you are
And in a cancerous radical way
We choose to fight you
I choose to fight you
We can,I can

Grace.
