I start this post with a Hmmmmm cos I am truly amazed by God. And how He just orchestrates things.
I was praying late last year and I recall I was especially praying for my inner circle friends and how to manage them better in 2014 especially as I can’t claim to have been the ‘world’s best friend’ to some last year when I heard God say very clearly that I need to sit up ooo cos He was bringing some NEW girl into my inner circle this 2014. At first I am like ‘that’s not possible. The ones I have are enough jor…’ But I just stored that info somewhere.
Fast forward to late January, I was busy arranging my room when I get a mail from a blog reader. Now I do get a number of mails and all but this babe wrote like we were continuing a conversation we started earlier in the day. I stopped my chores, sat down and re-read it. It felt like something I would have written myself. It was so scattered and so sweet. I felt an instant connection to whoever this girl was so I hit the reply button immediately. Then she responds with a little more detail about herself which she had ABSOLUTELY NO REASON sharing. Then she sends me her FAB entry which I must confess I didn’t read in detail till now (I had goosebumps reading through it now ooo choi)
At that moment, the Holy Spirit prompts me that this is the girl He said i would meet this new year. Immediately it resonated within me and I knew why I felt that connection from the first mail.
She called me up two days later or so and we spoke for almost an hour. And we flowed. As in really flowed. Bear in mind that I didn’t even know what she looked like. As she spoke, I was increasingly convinced that my inner circle just swelled by one. So I proposed friendship, she accepted and though I am yet to meet her, I am thrilled to welcome Ru into my inner circle (make way ladies lol). I sorta mentioned her at the end of this post http://eziaha.com/2014/01/27/doubledelight-naijawife-and-afoma-testify/
When she told me she wouldn’t want her picture up, I am like huh? How can you now be my friend? So she permitted me.
When I saw her pix, I am like yay!!! She is gorgeous too. Funny how I am accused of selectively picking only gorgeous friends. In Ru’s case, you see that I didn’t… Lol. #Likeattracts# #FabMeetsFab#
My longest intro ever… FABers, please meet Ru. You will definitely be hearing more about her here on this blog as she gradually eases into my increasingly fabulous life…
E’ you’re blessed to have amazing friends with the same purpose, drive and goal. (Is someone envious? Yes of course!). Your blog and JUG (Pastor M’s blog) gave me the courage to change the wrong relationships around me and make better decisions in my life.
***Well no need being jealous again. Now we are friends…***
After I made those decisions, my relationship with my Father grew thicker, stronger, sweeter, better (looking for more synonyms). Chei! Can’t believe I’ve been missing all these while. I’ve been getting half of his attention, but now, kabaye!.
***I have to get used to this ‘kabaye’ as girlfriend says it a lot lol***
I made sure I was alone during our annual prayer and fasting. Because I want 2014 to be different from the other years, I had to prepare differently, and boy! ‘Twas super amazing. I also fasted and prayed for 3 days when I heard the theme for the year. Did serious consultation with the Holy Spirit on how to make the year a great one for me.
My name is Rukevwe and here are some of my plans for the 2014 (because I keep adding to the list.)
1. This year, I want to be excellent in everything I do, to the point that I will be a point of reference.(Daniel 5:12 and 6:3).
2. Chase procrastination outta my life. Mehn! That guy is a thief. Never befriend him. I can’t count the number of opportunities I have missed. Anyways, there’s room for recovery.
***Amen amen amen. ***
3. Listen to a message everyday for a week, (I guess it will have more impact).
***I hope you have started ooo? Yes it sure will. I have been reading Paul’s letters to Timothy repeatedly for a while and every time, I get som’in new***
4. Take my responsibility in church seriously. I was made a group leader in choir last year and to think I didn’t call my members until I made it one of my goals, to speak and pray with them at least once a week. (Have I done it this week? *hides face* will surely do that ‘moro. Setting up a reminder). Also attend cell meeting and choir rehearsal regularly. Sometimes, I feel for my cell leader. I repent My Father!
***Hahaha. As a HOD myself, some members were war!!! Sometimes you just wanna ban them from church if you had the power to. So biko repent. I trust you are on track already***
4. Be on time always. You can’t be a procrastinator and be timely. They are the worst combo ever. Being a procrastinator and late comer that is…
***I feel you on this. I am also working on the timely thfor a certain place I don’t really like going to so I make it bearable by going REAL LATE lol. Father I repent!!!!***
5. Do a solo in the first quarter, sing Oh Holy night during our Carol service, and also go for voice training. (These have been constant for the past 2years). I’m so doing it this year. I have picked a song sef. *in your face Luci aka Satan*.
*** Beefing you because you can sing ***
6. Pray and intercede for my friends. (I have started this as well).
*** Nne, too necessary. God sure loves an intercessor. Plus you can’t pray and beef or hold in unforgiveness at the same time. I have learnt to up my prayers especially for those that are getting on my last nerves… He he he***
7. I want to give one million in a single cheque this first quarter (thinking about it makes me super excited). I love giving and sowing seeds. There’s nothing I have that I haven’t sowed the equivalent. I jokingly told a colleague I can’t drive a car when I haven’t given in millions. I will expatiate on this goal. I’m sure you’ve read of men and women of this world who sponsor policies and laws that are contrary to my Father’s. How dare they? I will give them a run for their money. Forbes will be so confused on how I arrived on the scene. Sister, the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ must flood the nations of this world as the waters cover the sea. We must drive the gospel to the uttermost part of the earth. You can’t do this by keeping quiet. I have started converting the abundance of the sea. Have you read the scriptures that say; you’ll lend to nations and you’ll lay up gold as dust? These scriptures must be fulfilled. (E’ let’s start this prayer group osiso).
***Did you guys feel the passion in that statement? My darling, billionaire believers needed. Yes our prosperity is confusing Forbes oooo… Thank God the group has started already****
8. Start a PGD in project management and ace it. I have actually registered so it’s in process.
9. Take care of old people. The ones that don’t have relatives to cater for them. I have identified 2. Will be sending cash to my mum to pay people to clean their houses, wash their clothes and cook for them. One of my long term goal is to open an old people’s home.
***Oh wow!!! I have a friend who has a passion for old people too and you have given me pointers for her before she can start her own home…***
10. Start French class this first quarter, March to be precise.
***I love the ‘To be precise’ line. Me too ooo. Wanna learn this French ooo***
11. Stabilize my business. God knows how many times I have squandered both my capital and profit. Sigh! I have been very prudent with money lately, so this time it’s for real. Making my first order tonight. Thank you Holy Spirit. Business ideas just keep flooding in. I have five mind blowing business ideas right now. The ability and resources are also available. Somebody shout glorrrrrrrrrrry.
***Glory!!! And I also pray God give you the wisdom to handle it well and take only steps He approves of while blessing the work of your hands, amen!!! BTW, did you make that order yet? ***
12. Be confirmed as a full staff in my office. Actually had a chat with my Father about it this afternoon. Something good is brewing already. *dancing etighi*
***Amen. Another FABer desires this. You and Tani and indeed others who have this desire will be back to testify here, amen***
13. Intensify my prayer life. Tremendous power has to be made available for these goals to come to pass. The bible says; there are things that will only go by prayer and by fasting.(Matt 17:21).
***Thank God for our FAB prayer group. It can only get better sweetie…***
14. Visit China, especially during one of their fairs or exhibition. A friend said I will come back with 200 business ideas, dunno how true that is. Already looking forward to it.
*** hahaha. Pictures when you do please… Especially at the Great Wall…And yes I believe that fr.iend ooo***
15. Work seriously on my temper.
***hahaha, when you are about to work a temper up, you have my number… Lol***
16. Own a car; Rav 4 the third edition.
*** Nne I can already picture it (also with Priceless too) which is why I will insert this picture here***
17. Surround myself with like minds, same purpose and drive. (I remember sowing a wristwatch that an ex friend (smiles) likes and she was so furious I didn’t give it to her. In her words; ‘you should have given it to me instead of sowing it in church’. I shook my head after she said it).
***Why do I think I want to hear this ‘ex-friend (smiles) gist? Hmmm***
18. Own a property in one of the posh area in my Gold Coast. (Foreigners will come and build my cities. Presidents and kings will send me aid. Isaiah 60:10 living translation). How I love Isaiah 60 especially the living translation. I ponder and mediate on it everyday.
***The more you ponder, the smaller the mountain gets. I also totally love that chapter. There was a year I read and confessed it daily. Maybe I should start again***
I have started some of these plans and know by my Father’s grace, I will achieve all in Jesus name, AMIN.
It is not by power nor by might but by spirit sayeth The Lord.
P.S. I didn’t add this last one because it’s been fulfilled which is; do a mail to E’. (Showing my 44 teeth)
***Lol… Warreva :p***
