I didn’t deserve it. 

I’m sure most of you have heard my story, maybe from blogs. But just before you judge me, hear me out.

“Just this once, it won’t hurt anyone, after all BODY NO BE WOOD”

This man is never around and this body of mine needs some work.

After now, never again.

Before I realized, I was back again, this time not once, not twice; as i speak I have lost count.

That feeling of “what have I done?” wasn’t there anymore, no heart racing, no conscience pinching, no restless night.

This fateful day on my usual rounds; 

People pointed, “Eh, that’s her”, but I walked as though they weren’t pointing at me

“Stop there! Someone shouted. Today you will finally face the law”

Fast forward to my judgement day, I was faced with many accusers

“I saw her!”

“I have seen her several times”

“I will still see her, so why should we spare her?”

But there was yet a calm one in the corner

“Let her be,” he said in a still voice.

“If you haven’t done worse things, then you can speak”

There was silence in the room.

Finally, the Judge spoke; “Anymore accusers?”

Silence still

“Since there isn’t anyone left, I have nothing against you”

YOU ARE FREE!!!

I stood still because the words didn’t sound real, I mean the only penalty for what I have done is death.

I heard the words again, this time clearly: YOU ARE FREE!!!

I felt freedom for the first time in forever, and I knew I didn’t have to struggle again.

It was a fresh start for me.

NEW BIRTH

I hear the sound of my name in the wind

I stop. I look. I turn, but there’s no one here

Maybe it’s my mind playing games

Maybe it’s the wind playing tricks

But I hear it again, louder, clearer

This is no mind thing, this is not a wind trick

Someone called my name

Is this my Samuel moment?

Write it down, I hear, Make it plain, I’m told

But what to write? And what to make plain?

I  turn to the scriptures, searching frantically

By myself, I say, feeling I can do all things

After all, the Bible says so

Once again I hear my name

Trust me, Child

I am everything you need

Every step of  every way

Every breath in and out

Every blink and every thought

When you have come into full understanding then and only then will you enjoy the benefits.

I went back to the scriptures, this time not by myself but with the guidance of the Father

As I read, words become pictures

I see them now; before they were mere words

A better understanding,a deeper meaning, literally feeling like I can hold it.

Joy fills my soul; I know I can take rest.

SHORT READ: THIS IS IT!!!

Ever missed your way?

Growing up,I dreaded missing my way especially when I had no one with me. If you have been to the redemption camp you will have an idea of what I am saying, even in the same venue you can get missing and you begin to get confused, trying to recalculate your steps, going back and forth sometimes you even feel silly or when you misplace something especially when it’s something really small, you start speaking to yourself in hush tones: “I kept it here”. “When I left, I dropped it here.” It can be frustrating I tell you.Thankfully in this new age there’s Google Map for the tech savvy ones, I can’t count the number of times I have been helped by Google Map.

Generally in life we often miss our way, we do things that are off course, we get distracted and we lose focus. Most people know where they are headed, some know the purpose for their life but these “little yet major things” come our way and we miss it.

Feel that way? I have good news for you, Just as Google map helps you find your way especially when you have missed a turn you see it recalculating the routes so as to get you to your destination, that’s the same way God recalculates your routes because he has already told you that he has a purpose for you. So, instead of sitting and wasting time on being worried about how you have missed your way, stand up, dust yourself and wait for the next instructions on which direction to go.

Relax! God is still very much interested in your life’s journey. 🙂

Welcome to February

I’m here to encourage everyone who might need one at the moment. Maybe you started this year with so many expectations in your heart and January is gone, there’s nothing close to what you expected or maybe you even had plans for your January but none of your plan was executed due to unforeseen circumstances. Let me first break it down to you, there are 11 months left this year, that shouldn’t be a problem as well, because most times what takes other people years might just take you seconds if you only stay true to God. I read somewhere that God is not limited by our time instead we limit ourselves by helping God plan our time for us (I see you, assistant holy spirit 😑 ). Why don’t you let go and let God?

Whatever you have down for this month, write it down make it plain and read it out to yourself every day that you may run with it.  Stir up your life with God’s reality, God’s plan and God’s purpose and watch everything fall into place for you this month. “Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down”.  “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes”.

Also as this is the month of love, why don’t you take up a challenge and show some love to people out there not as a cliché but because you truly appreciate them. Each day of this month, take out time and appreciate the ones you have no matter how little it can be, it will go a long way.

Have a fabulous and love filled February.

2016!!!

Happy New year guys!!!
Hope you are starting this year on a good note? If you aren’t it’s a good time to. “…forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before…”
Whatever it is you have gone through in 2015, my little advice is that you drop it where it belongs, holding on to it is like excess luggage and the flight might not take off and even if you drag it along you will definitely have to pay for the excess luggage, so why even bother? It’s definitely of no use for you.
Start this year afresh just like a breath of new air, why don’t you just try it now, ; Take a deep breath in, and the then out. Feels great right? That’s how you should take this year.
Why not live one day at a time. Take each day as it comes, good or bad just remember it was created and at the end of it all, things will work out together for your good as long as you believe. 
It’s okay to have resolutions,  goals, dreams and determinations but be disciplined enough to follow it up. You will go a long way if you do.
As much as we look forward to the best This year, storms will come we can only pray that it will passover us. “Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. Keep your guard up. You’re not the only ones plunged into these hard times. It’s the same with Christians all over the world. So keep a firm grip on the faith. The suffering won’t last forever. It won’t be long before this generous God who has great plans for us in Christ—eternal and glorious plans they are!—will have you put together and on your feet for good. He gets the last word; yes, he does.”
This year has a lot to offer so just remain focused and most importantly trust God. He has said it and he will do it, it’s just a matter of time.
Happy New year once again. Cheers to a fabulous 2016.🎆🎆🎆

GRATITUDE: Gbemisola Ero-Phillips

“You let men ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but You brought us out to abundance.”
Psalm 66:12

I know I still have a few more hours to go before 2015 is over, but I can say it’s been a good one. This year for me has been a year of mixed blessings for me. But I am still thankful. I have been hesitant about sharing my 2015 testimony because I am the only one who really knows how He took me through the fire. But if I don’t share, how will they know? I honestly want to type “God is so good” till this page is full.
I started the year very powerfully, especially with the 40 day fast in my church. I remember praying for a whole lot of things. At the beginning of the year, I read so many economic projections and saw how gloomy it was going to be. It was a bad year to start a business or get a house or get a line. I reminded God that when others say there is a casting down, I would say there is a lifting up. This year, I got my “OWN” car. I say own car because last year I had my mum’s car, which I returned to her.

Last year, I knew that my season in my former apartment was done. God showed me consistently that I didn’t belong there. But I didn’t have enough money to get the type of place I would have really loved. In January, God reminded of the need to move, by way of confirmation from another woman of God. Around June, God provided miraculously and a friend blessed me with a considerable part of my rent, the best part of this being the fact that it was no strings attached. God also helped me find a very beautiful place, in a way that could have been only Him. I paid for a place previously and then it wasn’t available and it took a while to get a refund. I’d stay in bed and cry that I wanted to move. When God did it, it was effortless- the hunt, the payment, the actual moving.

I met so many beautiful people this year. I started attending Joshuaville, and went out a little more this year. For an unrepentant couch potato like me, that’s a lot of improvement…

I like to think my most beautiful miracle of the year is God Himself. God showed Himself strong for me. He went all out to save me and answer me, a really humbling experience. God’s ways are not our ways, so when He fought for me, He answered the distress call of one little woman in her bed.

I also came into a greater awareness of myself. I have always been self-aware, but I started to see myself how God sees me. I now know that a little mistake can change the course of a life, and I’m more inspired to do right out of respect for God.

Sadly, I lost my favourite aunt this year, but God held us through it all, and even though we’re still healing, we’re moving forward. In all, 2015 has been the best year of my life so far.

Thank you Gbemisola….

Day 12: MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Christmas!
First let me start by saying Merry Christmas to Everyone.
Thanks to all those who have shared their Christmas experience so far.
When I hear Christmas I remember a whole lot. Most especially I’m excited about the celebration and the carols. The carols bring me so much joy, my favourites are; We three kings of orient are, The first Noel, O Holy Night and Elu Agogo😆😆 😆. Singing them reminds me of the miracle of christmas, sometimes I dwell so much on it wishing I was just beside Mary to watch the saviour’s birth or maybe help Joseph fetch water( Lol).
Christmas generally is a season of Love, It is also a season to reflect on what the love of God has brought you through so far.
The Love of God is unimaginable and I can’t begin to explain it all here.
The fact that you are alive to read this is enough to show how much He loves You. ..
A lot has happened this year and we can only remain thankful to God and of course for the reason why we can celebrate this season.
I really want to write a lot but words fail me and not to really bore you all with my talk I’d leave you with this;
“Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting. It is happiness because we see joy in people. It is forgetting self and finding time for others. It is discarding the meaningless and stressing the true values”.
Be Thankful and Enjoy your Christmas!
