Hey guys. I’m back!!!
Three POWERFUL posts in 2days!!! Catch up
Anybody giving cash rewards???
Anyways, I’m back and this time I’m tumblin’ flippin’ excited!!!
Now let me tell you a bit about KingDaveed. Not only is he strong, that lil’ man is STRONG-WILLED!!!
If not that I had heard Pastor M talk about recognising strong leadership qualities in your child and honing those skills in the way of God, I just may have been throwing the S word around.
And wrong labelling often provokes wrong reaction to the kid and you will just be breaking a child’s spirit.
Somedays, I’m plain overwhelmed. I look at KingDaveed and I’m like ‘…help me God. Help us God to raise Him in your ways. I’m just bland maimai without your help Lord…’
Pushes me to prayers. Pushes me to frame, edit and re-edit his confessions, my favourite two lines being ‘KingDaveed, you have strong leadership qualities with which you lead people to Jesus…’ and ‘KingDaveed, your spirit is tender to the things of God, you love the house of God and you are a big time Kingdom financier’.
Pushes me to hold his head every once in a while and lebrozokalibrahandalaye.
Some days, I wonder what KingDaveed will be in the future. Frankly, I spent 6years post secondary school pursuing a Pharmacy degree for my parents that ended in chaos with me ultimately being withdrawn. See story here https://eziaha.com/2013/06/26/in-the-same-place/ and one day I will have the guts to publish the full UNCUT story!!! *exhale*
I don’t have time to waste KingDaveed’s time pursuing anything less than God’s intended for him.
No, ain’t noborry got time fo’ tha’.
I desperately want him to discover purpose on time and RUN with it passionately.
I learned something from Heather Lindsey. She said they set aside a PURPOSE FUND for Logan and not the more popular college fund. That’s cause she is aware that it is possible God’s purpose for Logan may not involve college/university. It could be ANYTHING and whatever God calls him to do, they will use his purpose fund to fund it and not just haul him off to college and run up unnecessary bills. I mean if God has called him into music, any need going to waste four years studying Political science first? Shouldn’t he just go to the best music school in the world straight up?
You see, that’s the kinda parenting we want for Bro KingDaveed (side eye Rukevwe).
But this kinda future does not come about by just giving him this powerful name. It will come as we get on our faces before God, and continue to pray for him. And not just him, THEM!!!
KingDaveed and my future twin girls (who I have named after the two most influential women in my life. Guesses anyone?). Gosh, we cannot afford to fall asleep on the wheels. We can’t afford to be distracted with summer vacations and baby photo shoots while the main thing gets relegated.
I don’t want ‘prayer points’ over my kids in the future. I want my kids even more obsessed about Jesus than we are. I have seen firsthand, terrible parenting and it’s effects on kids. No, not on my watch!!! Not my kids.
When I did that post on Purpose, Seasons and a GiantSlayer turns one, https://eziaha.com/2016/04/08/purpose-seasons-and-a-giantslayer-turns-one/ I got quite some messages from moms like me and even moms-to-be. Just, *sigh* messages. Don’t let me qualify the theme of most messages.
One thing tho, it is NOT too late to rise and fill our positions. No matter the story today, we can start to write a better story by standing up and in that gap for them. Labouring in prayers (and downloading from heaven) until Christ is etched in them.
Which is why when I bumped into this on DDK’s page (my new unaware bestie), my spirit leaped!!! Jesus knows I need this. Even Angel Gabriel knows. I dunno if that post made me look like I have it all together but hunnay, I do NOT!!! There is always a MORE to enter and complacency (like comparison) is a game of fools. I believe so much in the power of prayers. Corporate prayers.
I’m looking forward to it. I’ve invited almost every mom-friend I know. I’m still inviting. That’s why I’m blogging this too. So I can reach more women. Moms, moms-to-be, moms-in-waiting, this is for EVERY WOMAN!!!
I do NOT care what LIE the devil has told you…
I could NOT care less what the situation is today with your kid(s)…
There is a GOOD God in heaven and my Bible says there is NOTHING He cannot do. I mean, where there are moms to pray, there is a God to answer. If God gave you those babies, then mama, you are WELL ABLE!!! Come let’s fortify together!!! FOR. OUR. KIDS.
Just throwing this tip out there-
Come with a journal and pen. Don’t let any scripture, RHEMA, prayer point or Word pass your journal by. Don’t worry, it may not all make sense immediately, but when you go home and make a college course of it as you study and personalise it to the peculiarity of your kids, you would realise what perfect picture you would have painted, with nothing short of heavenly strokes!!!
Eeeeeek!!! I’m bursting excited, can you tell?
I’m even waxing poetic, and I HATE poems lol.
I’m going to sleep. I’m deprived!!! Damn you Caffeine!!! And see yawl on Saturday 16th.

Someone (I met off my blog) is naming their kid after me and making me godmama!!!
OK if that is not making it, I don’t know what is. Haha. I’m pretty obsessed with my name Eziaha and this is such an honour Eujay.
Such an honor!!! I know you can’t come for this but honey, i’ma be standing in the gap for you and your kids plus my God daughter too. Can’t wait to meet her.
Oh and someone on this blog too named her son after my son, KingDaveed!!! I backflipped!!! No seriously!!! This is awesome.
Err, we must be doing something right, all to the glory of God!!! Amen!!!
