Hello everyone, It’s a cold day here in Dublin, but I’m happy and grateful for life, despite being a little more tired than usual for a Tuesday. Today I have a song to share. It’s not a new song, and I’ve heard it quite a few times, but this afternoon, as I was thinking and asking God for grace over all aspects of my life, the song took on a new depth for me. The song is called My World Needs You, by Kirk Franklin, and a few other artistes. I really hope someone is blessed by listening. 🙂 May God bless you all, and may all of us in desperate need of God’s help always remember that He is AN EVER present help in times of trouble, and actually at all times. ❤ Advertisements
Hello everyone! First, apologies on not responding to comments individually as I liked to do in the past. Now I literally blog while I have time during the work day, so I post and vanish till the next time I want to post. But I read every comment, and I’m deeply grateful for your love and support. Over the weekend, I read a scripture that moved me immensely. I was lying on my bed talking to God, telling Him that I feel a little thirsty in my spirit. Like, I was longing to spend time with Him, but I had been so tired, and making unwise choices (like watching late night movies haha) so I hadn’t been able to wake up and spend time with Him in the morning, as I love to. And then, somehow, I came across Isaiah 44: 1-4 “But now listen, Jacob, my servant, Israel, whom I have chosen. 2 This is what the Lord says— he who made you, who formed you in the womb, and who will help you: …
This has been a most beautiful week. Easily one of the most beautiful weeks I’ve had in Dublin. I’ve made friends, whose company I truly enjoy; I’m getting a hang of my role at work, and I can find my way around this new city much easier than before. But it’s also been a most emotional week, the good emotions though. Joy, peace, gratitude, clarity of thought (is that an emotion?) Yesterday I went to see a movie with my friends at 10pm (don’t worry, my area is safe.) It wasn’t the wisest decision as we all had work the next day, but as one of my friends said, you only live once. Also tickets were only 8euros so it was a financially smart decision. On our way back, my friends and I (me and three guys) took pictures by the bridge, and generally made good cheer. I must have used the word “beautiful” at least a hundred times. The bridge was beautiful, as was the water, and the sky, and people, and life, and …
Especially on this Easter Monday, when all I’m thinking about is the sacrifice of the cross. Jesus died for me today. His mercy over me is new every single morning. I don’t have to work on yesterday’s anointing, I don’t have to work with yesterday’s miracles. There are new miracles to be seen, new frontiers to conquer. There is something fresh and new and exciting every single day in the walk with the Lord.
When we pray, we empower ourselves because we know that we are absolutely nothing without God. But because we have God, we have all we need. When God shows us who He is in comparison to the tiny people we are, we understand that He is big and we can do all things with Him, including get our dream jobs.
I have come to a place where I’m ready for God to take me anywhere and to do whatever He wants to do with my life. I don’t know why for some reason, anytime I think about that, I imagine that God will give me the most difficult test in my life. But that may not necessarily be the case. He may be about to give me the most exciting time of my life.
When we try to make human sense of the instructions that come from God, we fall right flat on our faces because He never makes intellectual sense.
God’s power is shown in your weakness, and that’s why we’re not christians because we’re perfect, but we’re christians because we have a perfect Father who wants to make us like Him.
A lovely Nigerian gospel medley easy like Tuesday afternoon?
The true test of our faith is not from the experience on the mountain and in the valley, it is in the experience on the plains. Our growth comes in how we handle the times when we don’t think that anything phenomenal is taking place.
