No rust, no moth…Think Heaven “

IMG_4963“No rust, no moth….Think Heaven”

Either the dress looked too ravishing that i couldn’t resist its charm as displayed boldly on the mannequin at the boutique, or the shoe is in vogue and i have to be the chic , or my neighbor looked pretty in that pink lipstick and i feel i will look rather prettier in it or i simply can’t repeat the same outfit to that upcoming concert blah blah blah!… Oftentimes, I have purchased items i didn’t really need and spent money I didn’t have.

Come to think of it, what’s wrong with wearing the same attire to a different concert actually? And what’s the prize for competing with that neighbor or being up to date with trend anyway?

I have lived beyond my expense and I couldn’t attribute it to any thing tangible. I could have saved that money to secure a provident future. Sadly, for some of us, it’s only after the act we feel silly. We shouldn’t have bought it but we did and they aren’t refundable. That’s our loss. Sorry!

Too many times, the idea is to look gorgeous and have the glamorous life. We invest our funds into gadgets and garments.
Until I realized that the lifestyle was unscrupulous, it had done me more harm than good and I had to find a remedy to save me from the detriment.

It was there that I found real meaning to the scripture, ‘’Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal”. Matthew 6:19-20
I had to acknowledge the fact that I can’t have everything I desire in this life.

At a point, I had to shut my senses when I got to where em’ fancy stuff was displayed. I trained myself to live by my means and standards. Thank God for giving me the power to walk away from the world where I felt I could have it all.

As a matter of fact, our Christian walk cannot be complete if we resort to fixing our affections on earthly things. (Colossians 3:1) But rather, I pray God helps us to tune our minds to all the virtues that will aid us live lives worth the redemption through our Lord Jesus Christ.

May we never lose sight of the gospel while we still can so we can be caught up with Him when He shows up in His glory. Amen.

Put A Praise On It

Put A Pra

So, i had to go through the pain of “broken heart” before i got saved. It was after that rough time i saw the need to retrace my steps to Jesus for Him to touch me and heal my bruises. Anytime i look at that scar, it reminds me of who i was, who i am and where i’m going now.Anyway…back to why i’m writing this to you.

When i got dumped, I was so pained that until the dude apologised, which he never did, I wished for every bad thing to happen to him to get him crawling back to me. I wanted to see him dragged into the mud i was in so he would know and feel what it is to get dirty.
I wanted Karma to deal him an unfair hand. Oh yes! I waited and watched days turn into months and subsequently a year and some months without hearing the worst case scenario happen. I was stalking him on social media and anyway i knew how. Pathetic huh? I pray it never happens to you.

I was too hurt to see light in the situation.
Today I look back on the past and smile. I hear God tell me clearly that, “you had to go through that phase to become who you are today”.
I had to go through all that mess in order to get the inspiration of building a citadel of virtue for young girls to abstain sex before marriage and also to become virtuous and phenomenal women.

Every situation, good, bad and even the ugly work together for your good. Rom 8:28. All the circumstances that have occured and will occur have been carefully structured to take place to give you a testimony for tommorrow. You could be the next person inspiring generations and healing nations. It’s a process.

Would you put on your garment of praise and give God some praise for taking you through it all?
I pray God opens our eyes to see and thank Him for whatever that He allows to come our way. He will make a miracle out of the mess.
Give thanks in season and out of season, that’s the will of God. 1 Thess 5:18

If you don’t remember anything at all i have said in this note, please don’t forget that… “All things work together for the good of those who love God according to His purpose” Rom 8:28.
Whatever the situation, it will end in praise and you will give God the glory.

Light and Love,
