So camp opened today
*Please insert eyes rolling here*
I’ve been praying all sorts of prayers. That lagos camp will just close for no good reason. I mean… I always wanted to skip camp jare. I actually thought I’ll be preggers so I’ll get a quick legit EXEAT. Well here I am single and definitely NOT preggers…
Well now the only reason I was looking forward to camp is cos I’ll finally lose all the weight I gained three months ago!!! Yes CHRISTMAS!!!
And also in the one month I lounged in Abuja.
Speaking of Abuja, that’s where I am serving. Yes my camp is in Lagos but I’m serving in Abuja. Don’t worry if you don’t understand, you can’t understand, sorry. LOL
OK, so usually before I take any major step, I retreat. Just take sometime off to hear God. I had scheduled my retreat, pre-NYSC, for friday March 1 which incidentally was the day after my posting came out and I saw that the ‘powers that be’ had “runs’ed” me to Lagos just cos they want me around ’em. I laff!!!!
Uche and I were visiting with Fr. Patrick after we did our hair when Jibola pinged me and told me the list was out and I was posted to LAGOS!!! Orders from above. I laff again!!!
So the retreat was a good time to ‘seek his face’. I didn’t even have time to vex… That made the ‘powers that be’ scared… D fact that I said NOTHING. Keep smiling baby… Makes people wonder what you up to…
The night before the retreat tho, I had this dream where God told me the resource material he wanted me to study at my retreat, which by the way was for about 5hours. Phew… The message was clear, sooooo very clear and tz not for me alone which is why I’m sharing with fellow Christian Corp members, batch A… (the message can be applied to every Christian of course)
The message is simple
REP CHRIST WELL wherever you have been posted to, especially in camp. Like I hear, tz easy to backslide and go with the flow… Especially as there is no fellowship pastor/exco watching you and you also don’t have any fancy Christian label on you…
This may be the time for you to read my post of RIDIN’ SOLO here for a quick refresher. http://eziaha.wordpress.com/2012/10/25/ridin-solo/
No need keeping up with the Joneses!!! Honey,YOU ARE THE JONESES!!! Stand out and FOR CHRIST!!!
No baby, you are in this world but you are not of it. Don’t conform. Transform ’em instead.
God has an agenda!!! He wants to bring EVERYTHING in obedience to Christ. And he’s raising a generation of young ‘crazy’ believers who will be sold out to this agenda of his. He is sending us into the world and he is banking on us to stand for him even when it is not popular opinion.
I am speaking specifically to all my fellow Christ lovers… In orientation camps now. Please shine your light. If that action will NOT bring HIM glory, don’t indulge.
And nope, we have not been called to be passive about it. I don’t see agents of darkness passive. We are agents of Christ and have been called to fulfill his ETERNAL COUNSEL!!!
Pray wella, especially in tongues, in the middle of the madness that is camp. Saturate the atmosphere. Arrange things in the spirit… Arrange people too,especially the soldiers LOL!!!
The world is watching you and they are also groping in darkness. Some of them don’t know!!! Please do well to show them your light ok!
You have been drafted into this army of Christ called to fulfill his eternal counsel, even in orientation camp. Please take this assignment very seriously!!! Cos I will too.
Grace abounds, amen!!!
Btw, I, like most other ladies are renowned for always having so much load. NOT ME this time. My camp bag is so small.
That is ALL!!! And my handbag. I’m friggin’ serious about loosing weight!!! So no single provision. I have it ALL in that bag- shorts, shirts, two canvases, mosquito net (Ruthy Daddy’s girl prevailed on me to get one finally), waist pouch, EVERYTHING I NEED!!!I am so proud of me!!! Grab my handbag and i am GOOD TO GO!!!
My mates are already in camp. Me i decided to skip day one stress. i had to rest jare before camp starts for me. Momma almost fainted cos I told her I wanna go on day three. Well, cos of her I will go on day two. I saw pictures from today and all.could not stop laughing.Tweets were also crazy!!! Spent all day in bed catching up on camp gist… I also saw some people frog jumping!!! *inser5t huge surprised face* I hope that is not BATCH A ooo. I also saw Abuja Corp members with their bags on their heads. Hian kwa!!!
Anyways, I will go tomorrow!!! If Lagos camp doesn’t just decide to close down that is. Yesoooo I am still hopeful!!! VERY!!!
