We keep it moving

We keep it moving

Even when we want to sleep the day away or engage in idle chatter

When we want to watch Jenifa’s Diary all day long

We want to get the glory without the painful hard work

Want to at least take sleep and renew our mental faculties

To recover from the mental, emotional, and physical fatigue


We keep it moving

We remember that we are called to be mighty in the land

Remember that we bear the light of Christ

That we are created to do exploits on the good Lord’s earth

We cannot get those exploits while snuggled in our warm and comfortable beds, for we

Are trained in the challenges and adversities of life


We keep it moving

Because we know without any doubt that our strength comes from the Lord

We know that He will renew our strength, as we wait upon Him

Know that He is the wind beneath our sails

Without any doubt that He never fails

Any doubt that comes is crushed by His mighty power


We keep it moving

Because we finally love where we are

We finally are learning to yield to God

Finally doing the things we love

Doing them because we are fulfilled despite the rigor

We know that we are exactly where we are meant to be

And our hard work is an offering to God for His undeserved goodness


Friends, this is my story for the week, and the past few weeks as I’ve been so overwhelmed by my school work. I keep moving because I absolutely love where I am and I’m so grateful for God’s kindness in pointing me in the right direction!

Have a blessed week everyone, may the love of God keep you now and always!

Hey, my name is Alheri and I'm obsessed with Jesus. This blog is me keeping my promise to Him for answering a prayer. Purple is my favorite color and my favorite scripture is Jeremiah 32:27 which says "Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?" (KJV) You can contact me at

    Well done.

    It is like that. I, sometime ago, many decades ago, left my school dormitory at Obudu to visit John at Ikom and subsequently, Mama Bose at Okunni. Seeing John we decided to go to Okunni. To see Mama Bose. Two Okunnis. One in town along Ikom Calabar road. the other, the farm settlements, many many kilometers away, inside of the thick forests… We set for the farm settlement as it was a weekday. Far, foot part in the thick mangroove rain forest. Thick folliage. Dark footpath with many sometimes narrow, deep streams. Fat trunks of fallen trees crossing the footpath. Lonely and quiet. But with birds singing melodiously, as if for us.

    Tiring trek. No GPS equipment. ‘Just keep moving’, yelled John behind me. I overtook him as he stood awhile to ease off. And i was moving, moving. Moving. ‘Do you remember the place?’ I asked John in fear. I never knew he had not been there too. Only knew that they were at Okunni Quarters. Never in my life had i trekked that kind of distance

    For 20mins we would not sight the bright sun owing to the thick forest. We kept on moving obviously to an unkown destination. John only guessed that the path was right. He was right at the end of the day. But thank goodness we set foot on raod in the morning hours with some bread and soft drinks emptied to a celopine small bag. he items helped us immeasurably.
    And we kept moving. Moving with our spirits held high that as far as the footpath was still fresh, it must lead us somewhere. 4pm. Ahh. The time was gone far. And like alighting from the tube in Paddigton Station straight from Heatrow, we began to sense life. Heard cockcrow and the bleeting of goats. An finally, a hamlet. We had arrived.
    The wild excitement in the eyes of Mama Bose and other timid women she quickly called out on making us out turned out in tears of joy.
    How did you come? Which way? On learining about our take off point, she simply said…you have suffered. Why did you start from Ikom instead of Okunni Town? But do you blame us? No GPS Equipment. No GSM phones. Long story.
    But we just had to kept it moving… i mean the spirit inside of me, for me. And that inside of John for John also kept moving..


  5. Ohhhh Alheri……sounds like a very strong faith statement to me :). I love your obedience even when you maybe don’t feel like it. That is when it is so hard to just keep moving. Keep up the good work!
