2015 Epilogues: My latter shall surpass the former

 2015 ...I came, I saw and I conquered{Sounds cliche but thats the way it is( In Celine Dion's voice)}
This year was very dramatic for me. Looked like I was acting a movie script for Nollywood. It was like I played the lead role in one of  Zeb Ejiro soap operas. The story line was about one girl like that was confused.Guess I did a good job....

This year I had to question my maker.I was completely lost and questioned my purpose. I sought help from whoever came to mind.I just didn't give in until I got redirection. I drew closer to God and He drew closer to me.Kai, I never knew I was this strong.

 Amidst my search for God existence of which I found Him, this year had started off with winning a makeover. Before then I was lucky to get a goodie bag from a beauty company. It was more like a  year of winning freebies.Then I entered into a new environment. Met new people of like-minds. Made new friends,some I am keeping and some I would be dropping before next year. Remember, friendship no be by force...To my old friends, tried reconnecting with those who wanted to and those that were probably to busy to have my time...well done o

Girlfriends who got married and had to cut me off because of their new status,na so life be???Makes me wonder if I would do the same when it gets to my turn. Would I see every single lady as a threat and enemy of progress,hia!
Anyways I understand,its allowed...

2015 was spiced with disappointments. Disappointments that I thought I would never bounce back. Rejection,ridicule,carelessness,loss of weight, bitterness all made the year long. Paradoxically, 2015 turned out to be one of my fastest years so far on earth....

Thankfully, the children's laughters, the smiles received and given to brighten my day, the new and old friendships secured, family support, adding a feather to my cap,  unexpected favours, adventures, skills acquired, improvement on my blog and its recognition, being noticed even when I thought I loved to take the back seat made the year a joyous and quick one.Then finding love in places least expected made 2015 a year to reckon with.

Aha, I joined departments in church. It was transition from a church goer to a church worker. That for me was a quantum leap! Normally I would just want rest in my comfort zone but I made a decision to be more active in the House of God . It is rewarding big time!

As the year draws the curtain, I can say I am no longer the girl I was...Still I rise like garri in water

N.B Please I take una grandma beg una ( As my maths teacher in secondary school used to say to catch our attention), don't kill my blogging career #SupportTheMovement #support my blog...lolzzz
See you in 2016 by God's grace#Peace

Compliments of the season!!!

Church Blues...

Apparently, some of us do not understand the implications of unaccepted behaviour in the place of worship. Some people are attached to their phones that they can not put it away during service. They keep on pressing their phones in church during worship and even sermon. What exactly are they doing? They are pinging, checking Facebook and twitter updates, going through their mails. Some even receive calls even during ministration and prayer sessions....Well. I don't know but I think there is nothing more important when in the presence of God???

Personally, I feel it is disrespectful to God. Yes, He is a merciful God but we must not and should not abuse the mercy.No be God? I once played the culprit when going to church for me at a point was to know the latest hairstyles and fashion statements  when I needed inspiration.

My church rocks!(Not marketing) but it goes beyond the seemingly glamour. The word and worship is uplifting and touching. That I got to know when I realized that church was not for snooping or showbiz.

 But wait come sha....Many things are happening in churches these days!Are you one of those that sleep in church?Now this is very bad. I would not pretend like it never happened to me. Guess what? Believe it or not,its the devil's strategy to rob one of encounter with God. There might have been a hangover the previous night but we must strive to stay alert. Funnily, it is after the sermon that the sleep disappears.

Another habit is littering the house of God. I am one of those people who would like to carry chewing gum or sweets in my bag but I should not use the wrappers to litter my surroundings particularly church even if there are cleaners paid to do the cleaning.

One word for you might not be the word for another so it would not be nice to serve as a distraction during services. Unnecessary conversations can wait till after service.

We are in the era of selfies. Please it is not a bad thing but not during service. Abeg it can wait. Goes back to a form of distraction.

Are there churching habits you find appalling?Please share with me,would love to hear from you...
