Showered With Love πŸ˜

so for some funny reason eh, this text was previously missing from this post; forgive me for that please. (Sylvia you hear? πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜€πŸ˜„)

 

imagesI was reading this book, and then this blog title came to me, because I was taken back to some Saturday’s ago when this book first entered my hand. This book is special to me now, in more ways than one, especially because it was gifted to me with love from my big big sister Eky (a lirru famzing here permit me, iheheh)

So if you haven’t guessed already, this post is my attempt at a flashback to the overwhelming event of “some Saturdays ago” when my Welfare department family gave me the most pleasant suprise ever, the saturday (very early) morning when I wasΒ Showered With Love 😍

I usually don’t like being suprised -I’m like, “where are we going?” “What’s there?” “Who’s going to be there?” in essence, I sha like to be informed each step of the way- but when it’s a beautiful suprise like the well put together bridal shower my immediate church family threw for me,Β I fall in love!

 

images-4I was literally overwhelmed with love when I was crowned n “sash’d” that early morning about past 12am. I was screaming, I was bursting with laughter and when I wasn’t doing any of that, I was beaming with smiles, or holding back happy tears. I recall how incredibly loved I was made to feel, and then when each person began to speak about me, I was… *bitting my lip* (don’t cry rhed, you are a big gurl) I was embarrassed with love; how every one had beautiful things to say about me,?! even the constructive criticisms -you know there’s something about hearing what others think of you, I mean, I had more faith in myself after seeing myself from their perspective.

 

images-3So as a public declaration, I want to express deep appreciation and love to everyone who was present. Pastor M who I fondly call Maama -what a privilege to have had such a VIP at my suprise bridal shower, and the Well full of blessings you showerd upon me and my husband and my new family, Thank you for loving me; my special birthday mate! Sister Eky -who gifted me my new favorite book, (like I carry it everywhere) you are precious! My able HOD of life Chinwe -thank you for how you warmly embraced me into the fold from day one! Sister Kebe -always sounding so chirpy when you call me, lol, when I think of what a family God gave me in DCC, I think of you! Anty Jooooy! I’m enjoying getting to really know you. Sist Ogo, thank you for opening your heart to me πŸ˜„! My darling Tubohbreeee-hair artist extraordinaire, my God sent friend of life! my able Kiki bebe, ever calm and gentle Joyce and sis Ebi. God reward you all for that night. I love yous!Β images-5

And of course, special shallout to my hubby, wow you successfully kept the shower a secret from me! 😊😘 you try wehweh! images-6

 

I’d have posted pictures of my gifts, but I don’t want you to get jealous or ask me for it πŸ˜‚ (just kidding) it’s amazing that every gift I got that morning was a desire of my heart. Y’all truly hear from God!

Looking forward to more amazingly beautiful suprises in Jesus name!

Being MrsPeace is already rolling in the favors thank You Father!

Thank you for reading my journal hereπŸ˜„ till my next post, I pray you allΒ experience God in many awesome ways!

A Divine Romance

…from a lover’s view. 

 

“The ultimate romance is the Divine romance. That is the romance between the deep in our human spirit that calls to the deep in God’s Spirit” Dr. Mark J. Chironna.

Since the begining of time, God has been seeking a unique fellowship, so He created man. Each day He’d visit Adam in the garden of Eden and together they’d enjoy a sweet communion. He communed with Abraham so much He called him friend. And then when Jesus went back up into heaven, He came to dwell in my heart.

God desires a sincere intimacy with you and me. He is still seeking people who will love Him above everything else. People who will accept the responsibility to cultivate this Divine relationship; spending quality time with Him, talking and listening to Him, meeting His needs and doing what pleases Him.

 

It’s quite simple the way I see it; He wants to be the first face I see each morning when I wake up, the first ears I speak in to, the first voice that speaks back to me, the first warmth I feel. He wants to be The First -my First. Yes, He loves me that jelously.

 

He loves me so deep and hard that He readily shed the blood of His Son, and put His blood before me so that my sin can no longer drive a rift between me and Him and I never have to be away from Him.

He tries so desperately to reach out to us, even when we fail Him. His arms remain open wide because we matter to Him most. “Who will be my friend?” I can almost hear Him say.

 

God is unrelenting in pursuing us and touching our hearts, but what are we doing that really touches His heart? Do we know what He wants? Are we doing it? He is looking for people who are motivated by a desire to know Him and please Him.

We need to find out what God wants and then do it, not out of compulsion, but because He is our Lover and we want only to please Him. Just like I’m very careful to love my spouse the way he desires to be loved.

I have come to a deeper sense of abiding with Christ and I recognize Him as the first lover of my soul, so that as I am loving my spouse, I am loving him through Christ.

 

“As we get closer to the return of the Messiah, this earth will shake. The only people who will stand will be those who have achieved intimacy with the King”. Sid Roth.
