26th Sunday...How Quickly I Forget!!!

Song of the week: Pheel – God Dey

Encouragement Verse:I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say: My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.” – Isaiah 46: 10(NIV)

Quote of the week:The reason man may become the master of his own destiny is because he has the power to influence his own subconscious mind.” --- Napoleon Hill

On myTwenty-sixth (26) Sunday, I remind myself why I began this journey...[Sunday Sunday Blogging...when I could have been doing something else with my time]...So easily have I forgotten the reasons...the drive I had when it all began last quickly I have gotten distracted...forgetting that I am still expecting my Triplets.

I have forgotten that God has given me the power with my words to influence my destiny. It hit me this week when we (My Friend & I) were having our usual “Power Wednesday” and I said something that my friend quickly began to reprimand me. She added, “I know that it is not you speaking need to use your lips and confess greatness into your sounds obscure right now but with time God will reveal His plans...”

Her words bring to mind the Jeremiah 29: 11 Bible verse:...“I know the plans I have for you...plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

I Dare to Believe even when everthing seems so vague at this point but I ain’t giving up at least not until I know how this story ends...I love the way ‘The Message’ bible unravels the same Bible verse of the week;

Think about this. Wrap your minds around it...Remember your history, your long and rich history. I am God, the only God you've had or ever will have — incomparable, irreplaceable — From the very beginning telling you what the ending will be, All along letting you in on what is going to happen, Assuring you, 'I'm in this for the long haul, I'll do exactly what I set out to do...the man I chose to help me. I've said it, and I'll most certainly do it. I've planned it, so it's as good as done.” –
Isaiah 46: 8 - 11

On Friday, I went shopping but then I thought to myself, “Why am I trying to get something to wear when I don’t have anywhere to wear it to?”…but a reply came in chorus saying, “You may not have anywhere to wear it to but you can wear it when you come to see me on Sunday at Church…”

I say once more, “God I Dare to may seem impossible right now for me to believe but like Sarah (in the bible) I Dare to believe...I want to get dressed and ready for that miracle as hard as it might seem that it will happen but I will go out there trusting in You, Lord. I want to be one of those this year who have something great to write and speak about at the end of this year...and I want to be that channel that will bring people to Believe again...Believing that You, GOD, can do the unfeasibility...Thank you, Jesus...”

My Silver Sunday...Let me feel your 'Halo' again!!!

Song of the week: Beyoncé – Halo

Encouragement Verse:May God Almighty grant you mercy.” – Genesis 43: 14 (NIV)

Quote of the week:Fortitude is like courage, helping us to draw nearer to God and do what is right in spite of fears and difficulties...”

My Silver Sunday

So I am waiting??? But what exactly am I waiting for? What have I been looking for that I still haven’t found? I keep waiting for that thing…that moment. Waiting for that day when I will make the earth stand still with my happenings…or that ground breaking moment when I can say, “Yes, this is it!” But waiting has made me so foolish to the point that I seem to have forgotten how to dance to the life around me. Forgotten what it is to be really in love…and taking the risk to just fall even when I know I could hit the hard ground below.

I have become so self-absorbed…and easily I have forgotten how roses smell…

My heart has all the recipe of Love, yet I have been unable to prepare anything from what it holds inside. Maybe it is my pride that holds me back…or maybe it is the belief that I am so unworthy of your love for me that it has made it hard for me to simply embrace this love that you give to me…

With each song you played, your heart spoke of what resided in it…and each time you played you looked my way with love in your eyes, still yet my pride held back the urge to reciprocate this love. I have been beaten many times that I have forgotten how to simply love. I find myself over-spiritualizing love…forgetting that it is only those who take the risk at falling in love who will eventually beget love.

But if we could turn back the hands of time to yesterday, I’d like to ask you just one question before you walk away from my life forever...”Would you forgive me and Let me feel your ‘Halo’ again…? I am ready to ‘FALL AGAIN’…even if it does not make sense.

24th Sunday...All I Can Say...!!!

Song of the week: Samsong – Bianule

Encouragement Verse:...let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

Quote of the week:Enter every activity without giving mental recognition to the possibility of defeat. Concentrate on your strengths, instead of your weaknesses... on your powers, instead of your problems.” --- Paul J. Meyer

23rd Sunday...Dear Toks...!!!

Song of the week: Rihanna [Ft. Ne-Yo] – Hate that I Love you

Encouragement Verse:Let Love and faithfulness never leave you; ...write them on the tablet of your heart.” – Proverbs 3:3 (NIV)

Quote of the week: “...If we pattern our relationships based on God's word & instructions, I believe that ours will be the most fulfilling relationships in the world.” --- Unknown

Dear 'Toks',

How long do you want to me to keep acting these 'Romantic Comedies' drama around you? I am tried of pretending that we are only just friends. Yeah! I know I am making it so complicated...and I know you don't need that right now. But what if we were really meant to be...what if God placed in your life to be around when you heart gets broken, giving you time to realize the 'gem' that you've been looking for is right in front of you.

You just don't get it...and I wonder when you will get it that I am in Love with you and that I am waiting for the day when you will realize that my feelings (for you) are real...And that the guy I have been talking YOU!

Gosh! maybe I should come outright and let you know what my heart has been dying to spill out? Or maybe I will just take it with me to the grave...or just wait until you get it? But will you ever? I am scare that my wait will be in vain...Lord, help me.



So I did not get what I set out to get last weekend but it does not have to end is a new month (month of LOVE) and again, we have Twenty-eight days to experience a lot of amazing ways to love and say, 'I love you'. The choice is ours...

And once again, I mark another Sunday of blogging...I sign out on that note but I pray for Twenty-eight days of amazing Love...
