I am constantly looking for examples. Good God-examples.
When I find anything exemplary, I am quick to share with as many people as I can… When I fine exemplary model lives, ah, I celebrate them then turn into their personal unpaid cheerleaders.
Hello Rev Femi&Teju Oduwole and Pastor Kingsley&Mildred Okonkwo.
When I encounter exemplary service providers or Customer care people, I am super excited and I’m quick to recommend. When I come across a book, article, message, or blog that can bless others, I don’t stop recommending.
Any thing good I see that is representing God (shining their God-light) , I am usually tripped. Especially when they go public with it…
You see, don’t get it twisted. God needs examples. The world is getting darker and darker and sometimes, I see somethings or hear somethings and I just start crying. Because sometimes, people that go through some of these things need not but that’s all they know. The girl who decides to finally give her body and virginity to that stupid boy just because of Valentine pressure and some stupid gift probably has not heard enough that Virginity is COOL!!! How a girl can believe that she has a problem because she is a Virgin? She hasn’t seen many examples hence her naivete has gotten the best of her…
How can a guy believe that he has to do yahoo-yahoo and other such stuff to make money? How can a young guy believe Christians are sooooo boring and somewhat ‘de-repping’ than the rest and so finds it hard to publicly associate with church or anything Christianity. Even when he manages to go to church, he hides his bible and even denies it to his friends. Maybe we aren’t showing off the absolutely fabulous blessing church and Christianity are. Maybe we are so into ourselves, shining only for our fellow Christians, and not repping Him wella in the world that truly needs Him.
Now I aint talking of you acting one way in church and another way at work. No. I am talking of true Christians who are shy, or don’t wanna be seen as showing off, or labelled ‘Holier than thou’. (See my post here on when I was called Holier than thou http://eziaha.com/2013/09/10/3267/ )
Darling, God needs examples oooo. The devil is working overtime. Infilterating every sector. And frankly, I think we Christians are just too lax and comfy. Afterall, we are sure of our own heaven so what’s my own…
That’s really not very Christian ooo. And that’s actually wicked. God’s banking on us all to be good examples and show Him off.
I especially love examples in seeming ‘very dark areas’. Like music. The devil has twisted music taya. So when I hear a Sinach or Frank Edwards, I am emailing the song to as many people as I can. Like the movies. Do you see how movied these days make pre-marital sex look normal? Cool sef. And how the good girls and guys are made to look like the ones something is wrong with? Oh how I loveeeet when I see movies like Courageous that teach the TRUTH!!! Or FireProof!!! If you haven’t seen those two movies, please see them already.
One of the many lines from Courageous i loved when the cops were hanging out and one says ‘…divorce comes with the territory now…’ And the other says ‘…i disagree with you man. Divorce happens cos you make it an option…’ Awesome movie.
I saw a movie this week. It really was a great movie but within it were some vices made to look normal. Like going to a club with strippers and pole dancers. Eish!!!
I wish we had Christian clubs and hangouts where we can just relax and even dance away. All night if we want.
Walahi, Psquare’s Chop my money hasn’t stopped ringing in my head since that movie. And I don’t care for it.
That’s another reason why as much as I love AY, you won’t find me dead or alive at his Comedy concerts AY LIVE!!! When I see snippets, I am thrilled. But to go? Mba. Cos I won’t know when they will crack one lewd stupid joke. Or all those background songs or musicians that come to perform. Biko me and music. I gotta guard my ear gate ooo. If not, the songs won’t stop interfering with my quiet time and I start singing ‘See gobe…’ Loool (I detailed this in this post here http://eziaha.com/2013/09/18/e-guard-your-heart/ )
Hubby loves comedy a lot especially Night of a thousand laughs but I don’t let him go cos of that atmosphere there. So we have to make do with Osuofia movies loool.
But when Comedy goes to church!!! Aha… You can be sure you will find me there.
Which is why I am super excited about this Year’s Comedy goes to Church season 2 hosted by our very own MC Accapella in DCC.
I was at season 1 and I almost died laughing. It was incredible fun. I literally was in stitches. Unbelievable fun in a godly atmosphere. I didn’t want it to end. With music interjections from gospel artistes. It was healthy fun. Jokes from the bible. Trust Acapella na. Even PK who is already funny sef joined in cracking jokes. The hall was packed full and PK now says he needs to start charging for services and make money too just like Accapella must have made that night. Looooool. Ah I laughed taya.
I recall sitting beside Blessing and taking notes cos I wanted to blog about it but I didn’t get around to and I lost the paper though I managed to do a mini review here http://eziaha.com/2013/03/08/that-nudge/ . But there is a dvd and maybe when u go for season 2, u should buy it too.
( Bonus: I am on the red carpet and several people who I didn’t even know somehow saw it recognized me from Twitter and my blog and said I talk well and I rocked on the red (or funny carpet like Accapella calls it). So buy… Hehehe )
I also met some of my blog readers who came

(peek my natural hair did you? I can’t believe how fast it has grown. Love it and care for it like a baby. Will share my natural hair tips with y’all FAB naturalistas soon and get tips from y’all too he he he )
Speaking of good God examples, I celebrate one God-Girl who is a major inspiration to me in DCC with the exemplary service she gives to her Pastors and by extension God.
Onyinye ‘Charming’ is Pastor M’s PA. Very polite. Very friendly. Always with a smile. Very beautiful within and without. Treated everyone who wanted to see Pastor M well even when you couldn’t see her for one reason or the other. When I was still trying to find my footing in DCC, the way she would greet/hug me and talk to me about my blog certainly made me feel special and welcome. God bless you my darling Charming.
Onyi is a real sweetheart. Oh how I miss her and her sweet hugs. She is a real gift like her name says. Go FORWARD my darling. FAST-Forward. I love you darling. Very very much.
And yup Onyi is a new mommy too. Her baby is just a month now and so she is still in the US. DCC esp Pastor M sure misses her.
Happy birthday Sugar…
Speaking of Pastors PA, I truly can’t stand all those ‘madam kofo-like’ ones. Hiss. They just block road for nothing. Stopping you from seeing Pastor for no reason. Late last year, a friend was gisting me of som’in I did with one like two years ago. I didn’t even know I did it. I was going to see one of my pastors and some PA chic tried to stop me. She is a real rude babe with a tosh load of senseless attitude. Operative word: Senseless!!! She actually took her protocol job as a means to feel important. The moment she rudely tried to stop me, I just shoved her away gently but firmly and moved ahead to the waiting hug of my Pastor. She was stunned loool. And I didn’t even do it to ‘show her’ or anything, it was reflex and I didn’t even gloat or boast or even repeat it to anyone. When my friend was gisting us last year of that incident when we had cause to be at a similar gathering together again, I had even forgotten but I knew it was som’in I was capable of doing. Biko Pastors’ PAs ehn, be polite and friendly even though you have to be a police. That’s why Onyi is a real gem with me… She reminds me of American or British Policemen who are polite to even accused persons while this girl here reminds me of Naija policemen on the road in the hot sun looool who are so rude to even innocent citizens.
