Love is indeed a beautiful thing…happiness is exuded on a daily basis when there is love
It was a cold night…the rain wouldn’t stop. All I could think about was him. Even if it’s just to hug him for a few minutes, I thought to myself. I pick up my phone and dial his number. He doesm’t pick. Oh my! Why is he not picking? Rrring……goes my phone. I check the caller Id and he is the one. How happy I am. I tell him I miss him. He tells me he is coming over. Soon enough he knocks and I open the door for him. I hug him happily. He gives me an innocent kiss. He tries to release me. I hold on much longer. The kiss deepens. Hands roam everywhere. There is no stopping what is about to happen. Lust has taken over. Fibe minutes later we lay on the bed in silence. Tears streaming down my eyes in regret. What have I done? There goes my virginity of 23years in just 5 minutes. But it’s too late. I wish I could reverse the hand of time. I wish I had exercise a little bit of discipline and self- control. I wish I could fix my hymen back. But all are mere wishes now. I live with the guilt alone now. He tells me he loves me. Somehow I can’t shake the feeling off that he is playing me. Is sex evidence of love? He could have helped me by rebuking me? But the deed is done. I can only cross my fingers. This is my story.
I didn’t see this coming…finally the search is over. The one person with whom I could and would always be myself found me in a funny manner. To think that something was wrong with me all this while not knowing God was preparing him for me.
Patience is truly a virtue….
Who knew that the reason we came about the payment of tithe was because Jacob made a covenant with God that he will give God a tenth of his possession if God kept him in all his endeavours (Genesis28:22). Hmmm….amazing how we discover things when we study the word of God.
And that Abraham had a second wife named Keturah (Genesis 25:1).
We all have a mandate, as far as you are a human being and living soul on this earth. This mandate is to spread the gospel yeah! The Good news that Jesus Christ is our lord and personal savior.
Yes you wonder what I am getting at right?
Well, I was ill sometimes back and I thought this will be the end because I was having nightmares and I was so scared to sleep day or night afraid I might not wake up. But then it was laid upon my heart by the spirit of God (it can only be him at that time) that I am the daughter of the creator, the most high, why should I allow a mere sickness to trample upon me and I laughed within me because the chains of fear and sickness binding me was broken instantly and I began to confess healing and faith into my life.
I realized then that I have not been living up to par (fulfilling my purpose on earth as a Christian). Immediately I pleaded for forgiveness and made up my mind that come rain or shine I will serve God Almighty.
Why should we serve the Lord?
Very simple……imagine yourself as the daughter or son of the No. 1 person in the world…the possibilities are just endless.
Giving your life is not enough, you have to know him. Knowing God is not a guarantee that there won’t be any problems (that is a common denominator for both believers and unbelievers). But knowing God entails that in the midst of such problems you there is a power that is capable of stilling the storm (Matt 8:24).
So what are you waiting for?
Forsake those things which you think are luxury and follow God today because the Bible says in John 9:4 “I must work the works of him that sent me while it is day: the night cometh when no man can work”. Ask yourself: if the trumpet should sound now where do I stand?
Make the gospel and God your mandate. If you can’t preach in certain place, what about the social media, your immediate family, friends, colleagues at work. There is no freedom that is everlasting except God’s word (John 8:32 “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free”).

Have you ever wondered why the devil has a say in certain aspects of your life? Why you keep blaming yourself? Stop the blaming attitude and face your responsibilities. The devil can only reign in your life if you let him: Ephesians 4: 27 ” neither give place to the devil”. This means you have a say in whatever goes on in your life. So, look into yourself today, write down the negatives and the positives in your life, then pray to God concerning them. To be contd…..Have you ever wondered why the devil has a leading role in certain aspects of your life? Continue reading “INSIGHT (Part 1)”
