Taking over TOILETS!!! #TheBibleBathroomChallenge

Hi guys…

This FAB lane is on FAYA!!! Hahaha.

I told yawl, October would be a rocking month here. And if thought I would not TURN UP like I promised every 3days, shake your head at yourself. Haha.

Ok today’s post is a challenge. A FUN one!!!

I understand how busy life gets these days and everything and how we are no longer READING our Bibles talk more of studying. NO TIME mehn, you say. But haba, everyone has time to POOP, no???

Guilty!!! My toilet actually has a socket

And I know how we are all guilty of taking our phones into the toilet. When I was younger though and there were no mobile telephones, I ALWAYS used to carry a book into the toilet. My mom knew that once she calls and I say I AM IN THE TOILET, na until at least 30mins ooo. On bad days, she comes to drag me out. Little wonder I am soooo smart. I can read for Africa and at least 3 more continents.

Toot toot!!! Daz my horn… haha

Now I am older, though I still have my Toilet-with-a-book days, I also have my toilet-with-my-telephone days. In the recent past, Instagram used to be my toilet buddy. I just scroll through timelines and chillax. And by chillax, sometimes we are talking 45mins ooo. Lol. Oh, the joys!!!

BUT…

I heard something recently from my Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo that I thought was reaaaallllly cool… Especially if you don’t spend as much time with the Word as you would love to.

How about we all SWAP our phones for a Bible while we do our business?

I don’t mean Bible-on-your-phone ooo. I mean REAL HARDCOPY BIBLE???

Not saying Phone Bibles ain’t real but Yawl know if you use your phone, those pings are gonna come in AND distract you Darling so don’t even deceive yasef. Except of course you are VERY DISCIPLINED and would ignore any interruptions or better still, TURN OFF DATA on the phone for the period you are there. But there is still the possibility of phonecalls so hardcopy is safest.

I mean, imagine doing that DAILY for say 3months? And some of you even poop like thrice a day. Haha. WOW!!! I see more Brother Pauls, Peters and Silases birthing from the White House ooo

But seriously guys, every single time you go to use the toilet, go with a Bible. Best still, keep a Bible permanently in the toilet at home and one permanently in your bag/laptop bag/at your desk for work. Think privacy, serenity and concentration that being in the toilet brings. Oh and don’t forget the FREEDOM haha.

THE TOILET IS A PERFECT SANCTUARY guys.

This sounds so good someone should put it on a tee shirt.

Aren’t we all just thankful that GOD IS OMNIPRESENT? Everywhere, even in our toilet and He just wants to fellowship with us

Don’t worry about what you will read and how you will read it. Just open the Bible and start from all of those cool Bible stories in Matthew Mark Luke and John.

Or if you like, fly to Proverbs and just soak in the wisdom there.

Or if you are a hopeful Romantic, leave the prudish people and just roll with the romance in Songs of Solomon.

You like a good story? Esther provides one, drama and all.

Or you just wanna worship and can’t find the words? Brother David gives you plenty Psalms to choose from.

Comedy? The Children of Israel on their sojourn to the Promised Land especially will crack your ribs. Brother King Saul also provides comic relief especially where he said he was not eating then he now later ate at the Mediums house in 1 Samuel 28. Cracks me up everytime hahahaha.

Or if you like charting new paths, adventure and all, abeg go to all those books we hardly talk about e.g. Obadiah, Joel, Lamentations and so on.

History is your thing? The book of Chronicles, Numbers and so on will leave you feeling educated and very scholarly sef

Guys, the Bible is not just COMPLETE but it can be sooooo much fun to read. Fun aside, IT IS THE WORD OF GOD and it has POWER!!! It is both LIVING AND ACTIVE!!!

You might think you are just reading a story but trust me, as it enters your spirit, it gives you LIFE and begins to WORK in your life.

My darling, don’t worry about HOW it will happen, just focus on getting the WORD INTO YOU and watch the TRANSFORMATION that will follow.

So are we game? Hog your phone all day baby but when you are about to do your business in the toilet, you drop that PHONE with all of its distractions and PICK UP YOUR BIBLE. If you do not have a hardcopy Bible or access to it at that time, you can use your phone Bible app and let it read to you (like YouVersion), or just get an audio Bible and play from your phone. However, just find a way to get the WORD into you right there without distractions. The toilet is as good a place as any to just study without interruptions and actually HEAR GOD especially if He has chosen to go down the Still Small Voice path…

Soon, before you know it, you go carry CD player, journal, Highlighters, Pens, Concordance and Bible Dictionary and your toilet don turn War room be that.

Before long, fellowship go start. Inside Toilet, Hehe. Especially if you decide to take the Joyce Meyer Everyday Life Bible which I blogged about here inside… Hahahah

Scholars say it takes 21days to form a habit. I encourage you to START, and then make it a HABIT!!!

Cheers baby… To taking over TOILETS!!!

 

God loves yawl like crazzzzzy,

    Redeeming the Time!. Every minute must and should be invested in learning from the Master. And it absolutely feels overwhelming to know that My Jeahovah is with me right inside the toilet. No limitations, no barrier, no excuse… Investing the ‘pooing’ time positively.

    Lol.. now that’s an interesting concept. I’m so guilty of carrying my phone and reading e-books or chatting and all. I still try studying my bible at the dining table cause I still have some time… but then if I get all busy sometime in the future… bible in the toilet challenge could be a good option. 🙂 Thanks sis!

    Hi E’
    K’use. Lately, even when using a devotional (I’m not a consistent devotional user as I like to study by myself and devotional can become a lazy excuse for me to get by with) I try to meditate on the recommended text alone before seeing the devotional’s opinion. Toilet time indeed works for me, and there are no messaging apps on my device so I can concentrate on as many versions of d bible.
    Quick question. Does the Spirit of man sleep? Does it nap when u do or is it active to spiritual matters? Yep pls as many people can answer these Qs. I know someone who sleeps with the audio bible app playing on her laptop. She said she’s found that she knows spiritual things she can’t remember learning. Have you tried it? I’ve not. But I plan to for my siesta’s hopefully when I AV them. Bye. Love. A kiss for the Royal one

      Oh absolutely. Our spirits can’t be sleeping ooo God forbid lol

      24/7 active. It can’t even afford to sleep. Which is why sometimes u wake up with a scripture rolling out or a song. Or a knowing. The spirit was browsing while u slept.
      I do same a lot. I sleep with a video or a message or songs. Plenty times I get answers to some questions from my sleep when a line just highlights in my spirit to my consciousness from what I had playing. Plenty times ooo

      And yup I also don’t use a devotional daily/mostly. I should do a post on QUIET TIME tips.

      I hope your question is answered. Will study later for a scripture and update

    Am taking up this challenge. Am guilty of going to the toilet with my phone either chatting or playing game and if my phone is down. I go with a newspaper or any christian book. I don’t do my business without something in my hand. It makes the process fun and easy. Now am wise. I know better. This wisdom you have can only be from above. Can we have more October’s in a year. Am redeeming the time and building up myself. God bless you for this post.
