Day 17: My Favourite Blogs
I do have quite some blogs I LOVE but for the purpose of this, let me share the blogs that have had the absolute BIGGEST AND DEEPEST impact in my life and walk with God. Gosh, I LOVE THESE WOMEN
Five women who blog about their lives and experiences so lavishly as they live this Christian life and I am so thankful for them. How is that of all five, I have met JUST ONE!!! I have a personal relationship with THREE though and I am on my way to connecting with Shirer and Heather. No question about that. But really these blogs keep me sane and grounded in my faith walk. I ADORE THEM!!! And I camp out on their blogs reading the archives!!!
I decided to share this picture because of the story behind it.
I was SICK!!!
This was some 4weeks ago. On a Sunday night.
I walked round my home praying and anointing it, and just as I was walking out of my prayer room, I felt a rush in my body. It was a familiar yet very distant feeling. I felt like sickness was looming. I finished anointing, anointed myself, took the communion and all the while, my temperature was steady rising. I texted my husband, told him how I felt and went to bed. I woke the next morning SUPER SICK haha. Just me and a baby at home who does NOT care whether mama is sick or nah. my head pounded and KingDaveed didn’t stop jumping on and hitting me. He calls it play. He made me cry so much because it was PAINFUL physically and emotionally because i couldn’t play with him. I did my best to take care of him and did NOTHING to take care of myself. and by that I mean food and bath. I was SUPER WEAK. I didn’t even tell anyone. I dragged myself out, got drugs, and stayed in bed all day. By evening, I was getting a bit stronger but I still stayed in bed mostly. Just as I tucked KingDaveed into bed, I felt his temperature was high!!!
OH JESUS!!! I WAS SOOOOOO MAD!!! Like, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
By morning, I didn’t have time to be sick again. I couldn’t even afford to because I was now dealing with a sick baby. My heart shattered!!! His temperature was 39.8 and my bestie who is a Doctor was constantly calling. She too didn’t even know I was sick. Lol.
Mommy life!!! When your baby is SICK, sorry, YOU CANNOT BE SICK!!!
Well, God helped me and blessed the drugs too because he got better in no time. 2 HEART WRENCHING DAYS and nights!!! Sponge bathing, praying, medicating and crying. I didn’t even know when I got better. Haha
That picture will continue to remind me of how strong a mama can be just for her baby
19: My Favorite movie
Why not movies? Anyways, the Kendrick brothers have won my heart but my all time favourite remains FACING THE GIANTS!!!
I bawl, oh Jesus, I BAWL EVERYTIME I WATCH IT. By the end, I am officially the Chairlady of Nigerian water board. Hahaha. Especially where he says
‘Oh my God, I AM OVERWHELMED!!!’
Infact, almost every scene. That message of FAITH is EVERYTHING!!!
Courageous would come a close second.
The Courageous message is SOMETHING ELSE!!!
Being a man is not about having Children. ANY FOOL CAN FATHER A CHILD!!!
I think every man should watch that movie WITH HEADPHONES and a JOURNAL and without INTERRUPTIONS!!! And then take a retreat and just ask God to help them do this BEING A MAN thing right. I speak in tongues as I watch!!! Blows me away!!!
And then WAR ROOM!!! Of course.
By the end when Ms Clara is praying, I am not even sure who I am again!!!
I can’t wait to see MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN though.
Jennifer Garner was almost perfect in that movie. When you play someone’s real life and she gives you an Aplus, you know you did a SPECTACULAR JOB!!! I have seen LOADS of YouTube clips and interviews and I will just prepare a bucket when I am seeing the full movie. Hmm, a mama nursing a sick baby without (medical) hope is NO JOKE.
20: What makes me happy
This may sound clichéd but really, walking with God and by Faith, and the CONFIDENCE that comes from both, make me SUPER happy. I have seen my self change and keep changing. I am becoming more like Jesus but without him, I would have been Judas haha.
Then seeing women live FULLY and PASSIONATELY for God and have rich fulfilling lives too make me happy. Happy homes, Ministries that impact lives, amazing books (oh some people write sha) and exciting lives. Cue, Joyce Meyer, Lisa Bevere, Shirer Priscilla, Heather Lindsey, and Christine Caine. These women make me VERY HAPPY and I am so glad they obeyed the Call and didn’t let go of life too.
Ah, how are we at the end?
Enjoying writing this one even through my tears. See you again sooooooooon!!!
