Sometimes

Sometimes, you think you have it all figured out
Well, only sometimes
Sometimes, you feel life is being too good to believe
You know that’s only sometimes
Sometimes, you desire super great things and you get them
I guess that happens also sometimes
Sometimes are sometimes
Enjoy sometimes
Live sometimes
Pray for all sometimes
Rejoice at all sometimes
And soon you will find that sometimes actually make most times and gets better when you can be glad for sometimes

Sometimes, pardon my use of “sometimes”, you know what I mean right?
Smiles…
It’s for you sweety

More than a prince…

It’s serious when you find out that you are far more than an ambassador! Can you imagine? Not even a prince. Cos someone who was prince of this world (John 14:30) aspired for more, king of kingdom, he didn’t get it! Then I on a platter of gold, (well the cross isn’t so golden) so i’ll say on a cross of wood was made KING so that my Father comes to be THE King of Kings. Whoa!

Happy Birthday Mummy Fadeke

Specially dedicated to my wonderful aunt Fadeke today on her birthday.
Never been more certain about the path to a capable wife. No need for so much search. Let us see her and praise her… her excellency!

Proverbs 31 GNT
The Capable Wife
10 How hard it is to find a capable wife! She is worth far more than jewels!
(there’s need to mine and diligently search for her excellency)
11 Her husband puts his confidence in her, and he will never be poor.
(she is true source of wealth)
12 As long as she lives, she does him good and never harm.
(hmmm… NEVER harm)
13 She keeps herself busy making wool and linen cloth.
(busy at her career? *surprised face now*)
14 She brings home food from out-of-the-way places, as merchant ships do.
(she goes out)
15 She gets up before daylight to prepare food for her family and to tell her servant women what to do.
(early at waking up. *I need to learn this and imbibe this habit* oh! She even has maids too, yet instructs them)
16 She looks at land and buys it, and with money she has earned she plants a vineyard.
(insightful woman with foresight, saves, invests, and keeps growing)
17 She is a hard worker, strong and industrious.
(need I say more?)
18 She knows the value of everything she makes, and works late into the night.
19 She spins her own thread and weaves her own cloth.
20 She is generous to the poor and needy.
21 She doesn’t worry when it snows, because her family has warm clothing.
22 She makes bedspreads and wears clothes of fine purple linen.
23 Her husband is well known, one of the leading citizens.
24 She makes clothes and belts, and sells them to merchants.
25 She is strong and respected and not afraid of the future.
26 She speaks with a gentle wisdom.
27 She is always busy and looks after her family’s needs.
28 Her children show their appreciation, and her husband praises her.
29 He says, “Many women are good wives, but you are the best of them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive and beauty disappears, but a woman who honors the Lord should be praised.
31 Give her credit for all she does. She deserves the respect of everyone.
(Yes! She is… her excellency!)

Originally dedicated to my mum, Mrs Gbagi, the capable wives and my dear readers.

Operation World

Join the Operation World prayers today.
Mark 16:15. Luke 24:36-49, Acts 1:8

…The nations are there for the asking. God is calling you and me into the ministry of intercession for them. We have plenty of opposition in the heavenlies and from human powers and persecutors. The enemy will seek to frighten us with these and dangle allurements to distract us from the vision of a heavenly, eternal Kingdom filled with people from every race, tribe, people and tongue. Yet Jesus offers us a share in His reign. At times, we may look up to Him in agony, but we must see our true position – looking down with Him, exercising the authority bequeathed by Him in the Great Commission He has given to every Christian. May we become intercessors with a world vision that prays Satan-defeating, Kingdom-taking, people-reaching, captive-releasing, revival-giving, Christ-glorifying prayers…
