'...All these things'



Hmm,so many things taking our attention;here and there. It seems like they all are beautiful/attractive/deeply needed in themselves. Our soul been so thirsty/cries out for it, we deeply assume those things are 'true'. So we chase after them. Spending our time,energy,resourse just to make things work/get what exactly it is that attracts us.

Well,its really not a sin;in itself. Its in itself a natural inclination for every human. But there's something I really want to point out here: when what we seek(above all) becomes 'our love for other things' rather than  'our love for God', then its becomes an anomaly.

Matthew 6:33King James Version (KJV)
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.



Isn't it interesting, how that, the things that shall be added unto us can take up our attention from the love of God(our Father)? God's love is so big, it can attract any good thing (its just like a magnet{attracting iron} or honey {attracting particles}).
This is to make you understand how delicate that love is and how much it can attract other things (I mean the thing we may be dyeing to get, that drew our attention from him).

Ps.91:14-Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

God telling us to set our love on him is His way of making sure no contaminants stay in our hearts and our lives are not hung on material things that'll fade away someday.  Its his way of making our heart go on whether things exist or not. God telling us to set our hearts on him is His way of shaping our hearts. And we can be rest assured that if our hearts are shaped,we can walk in His will(not just permissible but perfect will) and all that we desire will be added  unto us. Beyond all this, we'll be set on high.

In my last blog post 'preparation' I explained how that God always wants to prepare us for what he has prepared for us; his love is the basis for all good things: that'll last a life time. That's why his desire for us is to set our love on Him.

Its really been a while I've been here. I've really missed(writing) you all. Anyway you have a blessed day and catch y'all later.

The thing is, the love of God builds patience in our lives and if we give ourselves to loving him; he breeds patients in us; taking us through a process that helps us see the beauty of thing in the long run.

God telling us to set our love on him is His way of making sure no contaminants stay in our hearts and our lives are not hung on material things that'll fade away someday. Its his way of making our heart go on whether things exist or not. God telling us to set our eyes on him is his way of grooming our hearts. And we can be rest assured that if our hearts go on, we can walk in his will(not just permissible but perfect will).

:)

Whew!! It's been a really long while time :) .I've been quite busy with school:)

So I came across one of the posters from mygracecards (a facebook page I created to express the chronicles in my mind)) and I realized how true it is for you and I. 


Very subconsciously we have believed in ourselves to be able to get things done. I say subconscious because sometimes we just do things and it seems like the norm; we let it pass, giving no meaning to it.  The truth is,some of these things are what count in our days of despair or when we need to encourage ourselves. 


It's important that you find the value in what you have gone through and let it propel you to a greater height.

Sometimes we have to take a look at where we are coming from(where we have been) and we will have an idea of not just how much we can do but how far we can go. :)

I hope you find strength as you take a look at your life and see how much strength you displayed in certain situations that could have made others a wreck or in unbelievable situations :)
Have a blissful day ahead.

Preparations

Preparation is one of those words you've probably heard a thousand and one times.

I want to point your attention to something interesting about preparation that I realized.
Especially when God drops somethings in our hearts..
I was thinking some days ago about how God drops certain things in our hearts and sometimes we don't really get why He is asking us to do such things.Or maybe we get why but we just can't bring ourselves to do it.

Here's 'a why'- He always wants to prepare us for what he has preparing for us somewhere in the future. Most of the time,what he expects of us may be  things we are not so used to or would sure hit into our regular kinda life.You most likely would have an internal struggle and maybe,procrastinate/try not to face it.




I am one of those people who can try pushing aside what God would have me do.But I came to realize that my prayers would require actions that probably only God can give a specific leading. And also because God sees way ahead,I better do what He'ld have me do if I really want things to fall in place for me.

Sometimes,it could really be a struggle but 'you gotta do what you gotta do'.

So the next time God places something in your heart and you seem to see yourself doing it,just encourage yourself in knowing that someday you'll realized it was just the perfect time to have prepared(things will fall just in place).

The truth is,if you don't get to prepare,you  may end up having to 'repass' and do some EXTRA work
 And then realize how-Obedience is better than sacrifice #winks.

p.s-Your heart was made by God,so He'll cause things to surface in your heart every now and then.

Would you?

Its 4 days after my grad from the uni today. It was such an exciting day for me.Took lots of pictures and still trying to collects them together. :) Here are some of them if you care to feed your eyes:


Yeah,thats me :)
 This is Korede and her sister Busayo. They are like family to  me :).They are siblings by the way and yeah,she(Busayo) bakes heavenly cakes.
 The official pose..
 I'm so excited about this particular shot! I look so excited..lol
 That's Korede and Busayo's Aunt and Uncle.





Reminising on how the years have gone by and how i have had so many plans and aspirations through my years in the uni,I though it would be a good point to write on.

Its amazing how time goes by.

The question I have for you today is- would you have done all your heart know you should have done within a frame of time that you have in a particular place? Especially as a child of God,who has desires placed in your heart by God.

I say this because most times,things (distractions) can get in your way. If you are not careful(focused) enough,you may get to the finish line without actually achieving what you were meant to achieve in the first place.

This, of course,is relative to individuals because every individual has their God given and even personal dreams goals etc.

Having answered this question,its of course time to readjust your schedule or priority and get focused on what really matters. Most times,you are about the only one that knows what you really,really should do.

So,make things happen for you and be happy!!

Here are more shot..

 These gals made a huge part of my stay in uni great!!
 This happens to be the only picture i personally took with her (*crying face*),after accusing me I asked her to take me pictures with her camera because I didn't want to take any picture with her..lol
She's Helen Konde and is the visionaire of Getting Connected.

 This is my Pastor and his friend.My Pastor and his wife came all the way from another city :)

Occupy!

*Laziness inspired*-My laziness inspired this!!


I am a very huge fan of been yourself. This is because i believe everyone has been created uniquely to fulfill God's purpose for them on earth. I deeply believe that anyone can become whatever they set their minds to doing.

And truth is that no body can do thing like someone else. I mean,people may be up to the same task but they will carry out the same task differently and can come out with both results been excellent. This is because everyone has been wired differently.
So also everyone has a space they have been created to occupy on God's earth. 

I believe that God has given us thought patterns and ways that we can get things done. The things is,you have to give yourself to growth.i have to give myself to growth-the right materials,challenges etc.These things will influence our way of thinking,doing things and even presenting ourselves.Thus,when we live this way,we would have lived out the life God intended for us to live. As opportunities present themselves,we live even on bigger stages.

I just want you to know that absolutely no one can occupy your space. NOBODY can do it(function) the way you can. This is the reason you want to grow and develop yourself. This is the reason you should do all you can to be better today than yesterday and tomorrow than today.

Get a material,expose yourself to a challenge that'll require you to do better,be around people who can challenge your thinking-to do better.

As much as no one can fill up your space on God's earth,you don't want to leave it empty.

You ask me how easy it is? Not at all because you will have urges that makes you lazy and perhaps do the wrong things


What you have to work on may not even be a talent,it may be something private that not everyone sees.

Luke 19:20- And he called his ten servants and delivered them ten pounds and said unto them,occupy till I come.

God has given everyone something(talent) to work on to be distinct in this life. To put this in another way,I would say everyone has something that's unique to them and them alone- some people can a lot (if that's you,load yourself with the right words so that you can influence people for good),some can act so well,etc.In whatever you know it is you can do well,begin to train yourself in it.

If you know what you are called to do already,do not wait for a stage or position before you start doing something.Jesus gave us a stage already,occupy.



In short,the earlier you grow(take baby steps) and become a better person,the better(more fulfilling) 'living' becomes for you.

The earlier I start to grow,the better living becomes for me.
