Hi guys. So I know I am supposed to be posting part 2 of WHY AM I STILL SINGLE but let’s put a pause on that for now, shall we? Thanks.
For the past two Junes, something amazing has featured in my life, asides my birthday of course. But first lemme do small Pastor Mildred gossip hehehe.
It dawned on me this week that two years ago at about the same time this amazing something happens, Pastor M was pregnant and glowing to heavens. Jeez that red gown… What made the pregnancy amazingly special was the fact that Doctors had said she would NEVER carry a child but 8years into her marriage, ‘…for the first time, my womb was not empty…’
(Get the message WHAT TO DO WHILE WAITING by PM for more details on the testimony. Still easily one of my BEST right up there with the POWER, MONEY and SEX series. Yup get that one too. Call 08077714411 or 08028356363) She wasn’t there alone.
Btw relive IMELA here
Then last year, mama was carrying a sleeping Davida and testifying to the shame of satan (Ekwensu ntoi)
while Efe Nathan and Onos just brought down the house in worship.
And then there were tonnes and tonnes of testimonies of pregnancies and births from the previous year choi
Hahahahaha this year, my darling Pastor M is here again, hosting the annual event WHEN WOMEN WORSHIP and she is pregnant again
hahahahahahahahaha so next year, she will be here again at WWW 2016 with her testimony baby (David?). Anybody thinking wha’ I am thinking for WWW 2017, 2018…??? Yes yes? Ok don’t say it out but if you know this song just sing along with me
(In case you don’t find me at WWW this year, know that Pastor M has locked me in the generator house so come and save a sister)
Ok enough about Pastor M. It just dawned on me now that I don’t even know if the annual event WHEN WOMEN WORSHIP (WWW) started 2years ago or that was just the first one I attended. Anyways WWW 2013 was themed IMELA. It always falls in June so there I was, fresh graduate, Corper, planning my wedding, everything going well, no real issues. I had reasons to say IMELA Chineke (That’s like You have done well Lord or best still, You Lord have outdone yourself).
I recall inviting plenty of my friends and meeting some of them for the first time there e.g. Tani. My dear, the next year, baby girl who came in 2013, in her words ‘jobless and depressed’ was at A KI KITAN testifying of how her life had changed in the last one year. Not only did she get a job, she had been promoted and had become an official LAGOS BIG GIRL.
I mean, look a’ tha’
Ok so WWW 2014 was themed A KI KI TAN (When Words Fail) and my goodness gracious, I had moved to the ‘Buj by then, NYSC done, married and all but trusting God for my dream job so me was coming to WWW with that huge request but also with a heart of worship and gratitude because frankly, I was in a VERY GOOD PLACE too. It was at the airport, Lagos bound and writing that Private jet post that I got the phonecall that landed me my job. Literally WORDS FAILED ME!!! Thank God for tears, I could just express myself freely in them both at the departure lounge and in His presence with other women. Then see me now saying I would miss WWW2015 as I would be either too heavy and about to pop or just about popped not knowing that I came for A KI KI TAN already pregnant hehehe.This year ehn, lemme not lie, I come bearing REQUESTS hehehe. Azzin the list lonnnnnnngggggggg. The changes that a baby brings in your life is REAL. First I have had to relocate to Lagos first to birth my child but wisdom demands I stay back because… BABY (at least for a few odd years maybe) and that auto means I left some ‘goodies’ behind in the ‘Buj.
A new life beckons so girlfriend is in the market for a house, a nanny, a car and when my Chocolata Royal is old enough, a job. If only these things were pushed out with the baby hehehe. But we can pray the goodies here because we never lose with God, especially when a baby is involved.
So guess who is NOT joking with WWW 2015 themed THREE NIGHTS IN THE SECRET PLACE? Yup, Eziaha!!!! In fact, I am sooo serious that I have rented momsie for those three nights to babysit because I need maximum concentration biko. I had to sharply courier my electric breast pump which had been sitting pretty in the ‘Buj
because the manual wouldn’t do the work involved in storing the large quantity I need for my Chocolata Royal and we still on the exclusive breastfeeding grind. My freezer is getting full with enough food so nobody calls me that booboo is crying ooo. Yup Eziaha is NOT KIDDIN’
Day One; Friday June 19 at 6.30pm_ When Women Pray
Day Two: Saturday June 20 at 4.30pm_ When Women Praise
Day Three: Sunday June 21 at 4.30pm_ When Women Worship
I won’t even type out all the ministers coming because it doesn’t matter who comes, GOD WILL BE THERE Shattah!!!! But then the Ministers coming no be here ooo choi!!! Pastor M has some listed in her post here and in the one above.
I am excited about all three days but you see that day 1, High heels for WHA??? Sweeties, I have dusted my trainers. Very comfy ones. Then my jeans and tee shirt. I am also in the middle of gathering scriptures I would use to fire my prayers. Kabayaaaaaaaa. Personally, I would be praying for my hubby, my Chocolata Royal and then myself so I go arrange my scriptures laidat hehehe. Yes call me selfish ooo hehehe. Would also remember my friends trusting God for babies (while dodging the baby bullets for now). I need more godchildren please. And specially for Ijay Sweets whose birthday is that day but she no dey Lagos sooooo…
Then the next day, we will now dress up and boogy down for answered prayers and finally day 3, ah good ol’ ever reliable worship. Just flat out worship THE KING!!! Was watching one of my most favouritestest Pastors Poju Oyemade and just before he came up, there was this music minister who was ministering. The presence was so thick dude couldn’t sing, he was just speaking in tongues… Ah worship atmosphere is something else. Wild bears and lions camping at my dormot would not stop me
Now tell me which problems can survive these three days? Dem never born the person wey born the person wey born am…
Tell you what else I would be doing?
I would also sow a seed so that my prayers are dropping on wet ground. I know that thee days there is a resistance and tons of reservations when it comes to Biblical giving but I loved how and always refer to the people of the OT especially Papa Abraham who took every opportunity to build an altar and sacrifice to the Lord especially when God has spoken to them OR God has done something OR when they want God to speak to them OR to do something. So because I believe in sowing and reaping, I will.
My people, ha si na ogologo okwu adiro n’uka mgbede. No long sermon in evening service. I have talk my own. Lemme go and express more milk before I sleep. See you at #3NITSP and please follow Pastor M on www.justusgirlsnaija.com for all the deets.
And hey, all my people coming, if you see me, say HIIIIII but not when we are praying sha hehehe. That prayer time is not the time to be socializing before the Angel carrying the answer…. Hahahahaha. That analogy makes me laugh.
