Deep, and Wide.

Deep, veeery deep, and wide. . .

The 15th of August literally began a whole new world for me. No, I haven’t fully wrapped my head around it yet, it is overwhelming, in a beautiful heart-filling kind of way.

“How does it feeeel?” A question I get asked much too often these days, lol. What do I say, how can I begin to explain it to y’all? Deep, veeery deep, and wide- a love that pretty much needs to be experienced than explained.

She’s so beautifully perfect, there’s no other way I see her. And when I see her, my heart wells up with an overwhelming kind of love. I kiss her all over her beautiful face all day everyday, lol. I can never get tired of looking at her, of holding her, of watching her realize this new world around her. And in the five weeks plus that she has been with me, I’ve realized the strength that was hidden on my insides, the strength that only this kind of love can draw out.

I love you so deeply my Zoey-Maya. You are protected by God, preserved by God and perfected by God. God is for you baby.

About Spirituality. . .

. . .To first of all state this truth, that “religion” and “spirituality” are on two separate wave lengths- meaning “don’t be confused, they don’t mean the same thing”. A person can be super religious without necessarily being spiritual. Religion is like a label, or a trend, and if you say you are religious it means you are simply part of a trend, or following the band wagon. Now spirituality on the other hand is a relationship, a personal relationship with God.

I have a bestfriend whom I love very much. His name is Paul. I enjoy talking to him, I enjoy listening to him talk back to me. I love it when we gist, when we can just look at each other and share a private joke with our eyes. I like to spend time with my best friend -almost 24hours matter of fact- and when I’m not with him I miss him sorely. When I experience something new, interesting or not, I’m eager to relate the tales to him.

I like to think of my relationship with God in the same simplicity. He called Abraham “friend”! Friend? Well that means I can talk about just anything with Him just like I would with Paul. He came down every evening to gist with Adam at the garden of Eden- It means I am worthy of His presence whenever and wherever, that’s how ever present He is. I don’t have to be stiff when I relate with Him, I can feel free to shoot him a message just to say “I love You”! It means if I ask, I can know exactly what He thinks of me and wants for/from me. It’s actually that simple. That I can ask His opinion about any and everything- I mean, that would save me a whole lot of heart aches and losses.

I believe a relationship with God is the most fulfilling relationship any person can have. And just like every other relationship, a relationship with God needs to be worked on.

Let’s make conscious effort to spend time with Him- morning, afternoon, anytime of the day. No matter what you are occupied with, let His presence saturate you. You can just ask Him a quick question, and listen to Him answer you right back. I talk to Him when I’m cooking, I ask Him to help me cook and I get directions on the right amount of ingredients per meal. Since I spend a lot of time in my kitchen, I’ve dedicated it specially to gisting with God (my Father), and ultimately, this regular relating with Him fills up my day with fulfilment. There’s nothing as beautiful as knowing what’s on God’s mind per time.

Take it from me😉

Be deliberate about your Spiritual Growth. You eat food to nourish your body…You need the Word of God to nourish your spirit. Spiritual growth takes effort on your part (Faith comes by hearing, and hearing   by the Word of God -Romans 10:17) Eat the Word, Speak the Word, Do the Word, Live the Word. Let your life speak before your lips move. God loves you!

Thankful in and out. . .

Some days I don’t even remember what day of the week it is. Asking me what date it is will be a stretch. Some days I’m really forgetful -I guess that’s why I always like my to-do-list’s. Some days I don’t even want to try, I know I’m not perfect, so what’s the use pretending. Some days I forget how to count, I allow my mind sleep, I lay deep in my imperfections, whining about the things that should and shouldn’t be, instead of just being grateful. I forget to smile.

But that’s not what today is about aiy?! 

Because being thankful is a choice- it’s an effort I have to make, to see the glass as half full, and be grateful for it.

Today I woke up in a so so mood. Thankfully things began to look up! I happily made a mental note of all the things I was thankful for, it was a long note, lol. Sadly I let an unfortunate misunderstanding sour up my mood- and I didn’t feel so thankful anymore.

That’s why today I’m especially thankful for God’s faithfulness. Imagine if He had mood swings, if He filled our mornings with warm sunshine and then an angry thunder at night, because someone pissed Him off! Oi. Aren’t you just grateful? that no matter how often you fall in and out of love with Him, He remains steadfast, loving you still.

Sigh

My heart is pumping a lot more blood lately, and sometimes the feeling gets me confused. Oh but this is a story for another day- quite an interesting one too lol.

Today I’m thankful. Because God’s grace is always sufficient to swing me back to life; that even when I don’t feel in the mood, I have a mind that can totally agree with my spirit, that I have a good good Father in God; and I’m thankful for all the amazing people in my life, starting with my husband ❤


 There is always always something to be thankful for! 


What are you thankful for today?

One Thing…

Staying with God!

just us girls naija

Hello ladies …valiant queens !

I’m so excited about this new move of God. Something spectacular happened to me this week but I guess I will share some other time but it was a confirmation of Wednesdays is for Wives. Nothing as beautiful as knowing God is holding your hand and that He’s helping you

So Like I said last week one of the biggest things I wished I had as a new bride was mentoring. Yes there were a lot of messages on what to do as a single to make sure you married right and that is so important because as I always say the biggest gift you can give yourself is to marry well.

I always knew one day that I would make that decision. I knew that I would find the kind of man that Thought I was perfect for him and he would be (at…

Moved To Action

#Godfidence

Have you ever believed in someone or something so much that you will have it no other way? I believe everyone goes through that at least once in a life time- yes at least once in a lifetime. It’s Thursday, so permit me to do a throwback- the wedding at Cana!

103575062-water-to-wine

What we mostly remember or heard from that incident are:

  1. The original wedding wine finished
  2. Whatever he tells you to do, do it
  3. Jesus performed His first miracle
  4. He turned water to wine
  5. The surprise from the chairman

On the surface, that’s basically what the bible passage is really about, that’s what I thought too until I learnt this one lesson that still rings true in our everyday lives- WE CAN MOVE GOD TO ACTION!

Jesus said, “Is that any of our business, Mother—yours or mine? This isn’t my time. Don’t push me.”

She went ahead anyway, telling…

Love's Voice

Those beautiful eyes that watch me close

Day and night, not blinking cos’ You chose

It’s amazing that You watch me sleep

You don’t shut your eyes- like a Shepherd watches his sheep

I could describe every part of You

But hear me mention a few

Not resembling the macho guy girls drool over,

You are the shield and refuge that gives cover

I’m enthralled by Your strength

Your strong arm stretched towards life’s great length

Protecting, preserving, providing

Your people, Your begotten, Your very own defending

How do I know it’s Your voice on my heart beating?

Awakening desire, my ears meet with greeting

Unfolding mysteries, great things unseen

You tell me as I draw near to glean

Sweet echo as in the cool of the day

Your voice, Your sound, every word you say

Unlike changing seasons, friends who come and go

You are there, unchanging, remaining, Your…
