Can you believe it??? is myFifteenth Sunday

…WooHoo!!! Heh! I have really done well, I have to write...

If you know where I am coming from then you will understand. Before now, Kemi never finishes a project that she starts past a month but look at me…
gosh! I got to give myself a pat on the back!!!

>>>‘So how have you all been?’

I do believe that there’s someone out there reading this right now. And I hope it has been able to inspire you in any way…???

And if you are able to read me like a book as you read my blog, please be honest with your comment when you leave them…Thanks a lot…

So I will share with you another battle of mine…and that is learning to trust and just be vulnerable… [Thanks to a friend who pointed that out]

I guess I have always known that aspect of my sometimes selfish self but it only pinched me harder when recently I missed a ‘grab-the-bull-by-the-horn’ moment…
That incident took a piece of my heart that every so often I still ponder what could have been…I guess I may never know for now...

But it is just so amazing how a load of past events change your perception about life. They can either make you become withdrawn or outgoing about reaching out when you’ve been burnt. Well, God is our strength...

Anyways, Let me leave you with this thought provoking words below...[Read me next Sunday...16th Sunday!!!]

The Shroud of the Past

Progress encumbered by an unforgiving spirit,
And all attempt to dive into the deep-sea of the future,
Frustrated by its foolishness,
Yet again the death of another soul,
The burial procession makes ready its burial,

Another soul trapped in the ‘Maze of the past’
Comfort is camouflaged in the ‘Rags of the present’,
Swathed by its hollow warmth,
Which only leads into another winter of hatred and bitterness,
And its hideous head of resentment,

Unleash from its clutches, I beg
And cuddle the good news that this season brings,
Hoisting the flag of peace in your heart,

And letting God melt the accumulated snow of hatred away from your heart,
As He floods it with His ocean of love, Amen
