Hiii guys,
My 2nd blog entry in one week, I am making progress, *hehe
This is not really an entry. I was worshipping and I got goosebumps. God is sooo awesome. If you're reading this give Him a wiper. I can't hold it in, I just have to share.
Today He led me to Revelations 3:8 which says "I know your deeds. See I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name".
Yesterday I had such little strength, and I almost slept with anger. I was frustrated and spent. This morning He woke me up with His promises!!
Listen to this song. Hopefully it'll give you shivers too!

The Word

I need to write.
I need to pour out my feelings somewhere and empty myself so I can be filled.
I just got some weird/bad news. Nothing too drastic but you know when you think you have everything all planned out then a piece of the puzzle is missing that messes everything else up?
I really do not understand God's ways and yes, His ways are not our ways.
So I am waiting in His sanctuary because I neeeeed to be filled.
If you are reading this, I would appreciate a prayer or two.

Today I want to talk about the Word. I am attracted to this guy who is 8 years my senior. It's not a crush I am enjoying, I want it to go away because if it is God's will for my life, it will come back. Until then, it is distracting me.
Last week in Bible study the speaker talked about how we spit out what we take in.
If I read romance novels constantly, my thoughts are filled with make-believe prince charming-s
If I read Chemistry, I'm thinking formulas.
If I watch BET, I am thinking excessive exposure of our temples, songs that do not glorify God, and generally things of the flesh.
The same way the more I 'stalk' *cough* this guy, the more I create my wedding in my head.
And yet again the same way if I stay in my Word, the more my Spirit thrives and the quicker my flesh dies. Over the weekend and part of last week it seemed like the Spirit kept leading me back to my word. Not particularly Bible passages, but just telling me I need to study more. Sometimes I complain that I cannot hear God's voice, yet the one He has given me in the form of the Bible, in plain black and white, I refuse to study as often as I should.

For the word of God is hidden and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account. >> Hebrews 4: 12, 13

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. >> 2 Timothy 3:16, 17

But by the word I do not only mean the Bible.
John 5:39 says>> You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about Me, yet you refuse to come to Me to have life.

Yes, "Many books inform, but only one transforms - the Bible"...Jesus is the word. Stay rooted in Him, because all else is sinking sand.

P.s, listen to this song. It just gave me peace.

The greatest of these is Love - God is Love

This is the most I have ever blogged in one day, lol but both my classes for today were canceled so I am free-ish! Yes, school is back in session *sigh*
This also means that my Family has left for Nigeria. Sad times. I miss them so much! The older we get the less time we have to spend together.
This Christmas was so beautiful. My sister's graduation was a success, God is faithful, don't let them deceive you.
This year I'm chasing after God, along with a host of other resolutions, like going to the gym 5 times a week. I must say, so far so good w the gym part, lol. I decided to read the book of Romans and I am doing that with a friend. It is mostly so we encourage each other and make sure the other person is not slacking. Today I read Chapter 1. I loved so many of the verses, had my highlighter in hand and all! But mostly verse 21 which says, "For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him as God nor gave thanks to Him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened."
Why do we think we know more than the one who created us? I immediately flipped to James 2:19 which says, "You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that - and shudder."
Knowing something is not enough. Sometimes we pride ourselves on how much you know, but that can only get you so far. Psalm 111:10 says "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom" and Proverbs 1:7 replaces the word 'wisdom' with 'knowledge'.
I know there is a God, but sometimes I do not fear Him enough to make out time for Him. Not 5 minutes when I'm on the metro, or 10 when I'm in the loo, or a quick prayer before an exam, but the best of my time. Time I could be using to watch a movie, read a novel, gist with a friend, facebook or tweet. The best that I have, that's what He deserves, and even more.
So as we make our new year resolutions, let us remember to reverence God and respect the work of His hands, His creation. And let us remember that it is not enough to KNOW there is a God...that alone won't get you into heaven.

On another note, I am tired of reading the news because as more and more unfolds about the situation in Haiti it just gets more disheartening. So instead of talking or reading about it, I am praying for them. Please do that as well, not in the cliched way, but pray as if you really want God to do something about it. Then act! Actions speak louder than words:
Donate here or here or here
Be your brother's keeper...without expecting anything in return.
Love, Xxx

It's A New Daaaay!

Hellooooo everyone!
I know it's 2 weeks into the new decade, but Happy New Year, Happy New Month and Happy New Decade!
This was the most excited I have ever been for a new year! Omg I could not wait. I have so many hopes and dreams for the year and by God's grace He will take me, and all of us to greater heights in Him.
Remember, old things have passed away, so forget about whatever you have been through and don't limit God, He is ready to do bigger and brighter things with all of us as long as we remember Psalm 37:4 >> Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.
Love, love, love
