42nd Sunday...My Time to Bloom !!!

Song of the week: Omolara [ft. M.I] – Tonight

Encouragement Verse: “Rise up; this matter is in your hands. We will support you, so take courage and do it.” – Ezra 10:4[NIV]

Quote of the week:Take a chance! All life is a chance. The man who goes furthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare
.” --- Dale Carnegie

January 1, 2009 (New Year), I wrote in my journal:
“…it is not going to be a year free from trials…or tribulations but God will see us through it all. I may or may not get to meet that special one but in my process of finding ‘the One’…”Bankole*” I will get healed spiritually…”

[* at time of writing, I had another name in mind but down the road that was lost in the forest of yesterday…]

God has a reason why we have to go through a series of ‘Soap opera’ moments before we get our breakthrough…Realize that if everything came to us easily then people won’t be able to embark on the journey of self-discovery or growing in relationship with God. Definitely, everything does happen in accordance to His wisdom and timing…
So what does Kemi have to share this Sunday?

[As I flip through entries in my little book, I personally call,Pink Book of Encouragement’]

Um…Ok, I will share with you, what might seem like an insignificant testimony but it is something that I see the hand of God.

As these Sundays hasten toward my ‘Jubilee’ Sunday…I can’t help but share another ‘Amazing Grace’ instant with readers of this blog...

On the preceding Sunday, I shared with you on how I began this ‘Sunday Blogging’ and how God used a Pastor to minister into my life His provision. But unknown to me, something was happening that I did not realize until I was speaking with a friend, when it hit me like a ton of brick what was happening.

On the weekend, when I complete my milestone of fifty (50) Sunday post, it will be the same weekend I will be a Bridesmaid at my friend’s wedding [Check out, ‘Making it Easypost].

When I began this journey, little did I know that it will be happening this way…Even my friend (getting married) was uncertain that she would be marrying the guy she was dating at that time. When she first told me that she wanted me to be one of her bridesmaids, I wanted to give her ‘100 reasons’ why I could not but I did not want to disappoint her heart because I was one of those who kept encouraging about finding the ‘One’.

[Sidetrack tale: Another surprise, is that this will be the first time I will be a Bridesmaid in my life…I have been a last minute Maid of Honor (MOH) once but never a Bridesmaid…Have caught the bouquet like a gifted skilled athlete trained for bouquet-catching but never the Bridesmaid. I have bought almost all the aso-ebi for my entire friend’s wedding…but never the Bridesmaid…]

Anyways, I realized that these series of coincident event have been taking place before my (How do I write ‘Korokoro’ eyes in Queen’s English? That will be for another day…anyways) eyes.

The funny thing is that on my ‘Jubilee Sunday’ post, I will actually be sitting in the Church of the pastor that God used to minister to me. First time there and I will be going there because that’s where my friend will be getting married in.

The year (in my own context of posting) will be ending with me as a bridesmaid dancing with my friend down the aisle to God’s altar celebrating His goodness in both our lives.

And like another friend put it, it is your ‘time to BLOOM’…

Next Sunday:
~ Remember to write a letter to all the fathers to show your appreciation to them...
