How I learned the definition of Beauty?

I used to think that beauty was perfection.

Loved this song from this morning. It communicates what is in my heart clearly.

God makes beautiful

Before I met God I was beautiful but not real, I was glass

Now I am clay, beautiful clay because of the treasure on my inside…

My beauty is undefinable because I don’t even know the totality of it

Every day is a revelation of who I could be in God’s hands

I am thankful today for the Holy Ghost and that He doesn’t leave me even when I act like I would rather He left me alone

He knows that I don’t mean it but my desire to control everything gets the better of me

So today I am thankful for the person of the Holy Ghost and the roles that He plays in my life

and how He counsels me even when I feel that stubborn feeling cropping up

and how He constantly constantly leads me and how He is always on time.

I am grateful for truth that the Holy Ghost gives because constantly I am reminded of how weird my thinking is when I talk to others and get to know what they really think and how far it is from God’s truth.

It just helps me value godly counsel over and over again

I am not afraid to be different or ashamed of being different instead by grace I embrace who I am and who God has made me and how He has guided me over the years and still guide me.

I am thankful for 4th September 2001 and 9th of April 2009 and all the dates that the Holy Ghost makes special because He gives me illumination and understanding, my wonderful grey matter as precious as it is could never accomplish what the Holy Spirit has accomplished in my life and is still doing.

When I talk with others time and again I realize how crazy my dreams seem but I serve the God who can make those dreams come true. He is both the giver and the fulfiller of dreams.

Sometimes when I considers other people’s reality I know how humbled I feel and I can get it when the angels say “what is man that God is mindful?”

It is not beef but wonder but God is so much more than I could ever fully comprehend because no matter how much I think I know Him and I do know Him, I could never know Him finish; there is always more in God.


Just thankful for the gift of today and what God would want to do with it, I open my heart to the Lord to do His will by grace.


PS I never start out to be so so spiritual but I cannot deny who I am or pretend to be like anyone else on the earth, I am not, I am unique because God knows my name and He cared enough to let me find Him…

This is #blessed the way God has revealed Himself to me, this is the #blessed that I know to have access and to know God’s presence. What could compare?

By God’s grace, I pray that I would stop trying to blend with the crowd and live, truly LIVE and let the treasure; the Holy Ghost shine through.

I was beauty but I never really felt beautiful until I knew the Holy Ghost. He opened my eyes to see me for who I am in Him. That is #blessed knowing God as He is.

I participated in a book blast early in the year. Some time in May, check it out here

It was scheduled for the 22nd of May 2014. In my characteristic self, I forgot about it when it should have been on my front burner. That is why I need my schedule so bad. I posted it on the 24th May 2014. It is a book blast, something to give her book publicity. This is my seed for the book that I will be writing.

What is a book blast?
I was checking Google plus and I saw these series of hash tags of course I did mine.
So it is a book blast by Paulette Harper.
The Write Now Literary is organizing a Virtual Book Tour for Terra Cotta Beauty and I am helping out. It is a book written by an author Jola Naibi. They sent me a book to also do a review so do expect that also.
About The Author
The author, Jola Naibi was raised in Lagos, Nigeria, Yay!
She studied in the UK and enjoys writing and blogging. She also has a very eager imagination.  (I am so excited by that because she is a prototype of me)

About The Book
Follow the daily lives, loves, and hopes of an entire community in Jola Naibi’s moving debut, ‘Terra Cotta Beauty’.
A carefully crafted selection of short stories, this collection examines life in Lagos, Nigeria, during the era of military rule. It reveals the struggles, loves, and hopes of a disparate group of people whose lives always manage to intersect—sometimes in the most devastating of ways.
With each brief conversation and split-second decision containing consequences that reach further than anyone could ever imagine, each of the book’s seven tales is a delicate thread that helps form the social fabric of a nation divided.
From a woman whose journalist husband is jailed for criticizing the government to a young man’s reluctant descent into crime, Terra Cotta Beauty acts as a carefully crafted ode to the essence of Lagos itself: its people.
It will make an interesting read if you like ‘Everything good will come’ by Sefi Atta, which by the way I did.

How important your perspective is!

What kind of perspective do you have?

How do you see?

What kind of eyes do you look at life?

The bible says that “As far as you can see, that is how far God has given to you“.

So you have to see something. What are you seeing? What you don’t see, you cannot receive.

Also you can’t know what to see except you have gone into God’s word to see the way God sees.

A preacher once said, Christianity is the great profession.

It means that you must always be saying something and not the wrong things.

I think that Christianity is a process of renewing your mind daily.

You must be studying the word of God constantly so that you can know which area your mind should be constantly changing.

I am changing my mind in the area of my family, health, future etc. I was doing that last year, I am still doing it this year and will still be doing it next year. That is the Christian life.

Lay aside all naughtiness and superfluity of nothingness…

Drop everything that does not matter. Let it go. Let it go so that your heart may be able to receive the word of God that can save your soul.

The word can save your soul but you must let go of everything else so that your heart may be open to receive the engrafted word.

 Half full or half empty? How do you see it? Your perspective matters

You should adjust that perspective to God’s word.

Make a video to witness Christ that an atheist will look at without spewing hate at Christians, something that would be a seed that can germinate and gather rewards for me in heaven. (It isn’t bad to be selfless so someone can meet Jesus)

    7. What is the most challenging goal in your bucket list? To live, to truly live everyday and not get distracted. To love other people like Jesus would if he were walking the earth. To live life with my 100%, always present.

I want to be able to lift my head up everyday not because of self righteousness but because I am honoring my king (crazy right?). Kissing is a pretty serious thing, you shouldn’t be sharing it around.

    Last Part: Now, it’s your turn! Maybe you have already been nominated by someone else but I checked your blog and you haven’t posted it yet…

    I am not nominating anyone, enjoy

    I am a son of God… #Glad about it

    Someone nominated me for a praise challenge and I don’t have a challenge praising God but I used to.

    I found this:

    What do you think of Jesus and how He lived?

    It is a push for me. I love it!

    Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

    “I believe you are your work. Don’t trade the stuff of your life, time…

    Challenging week.

    “I believe you are your work. Don’t trade the stuff of your life, time, for nothing more than dollars. That’s a rotten bargain.” ~Rita Mae Brown

    I feel challenged. I have what it takes, I know that. I just don’t want to fall short of what I could do with this so I am stretching the limits, throwing off the boundaries and increasing my expectations of myself. I can impress others easily, it is myself I should out-do in this.

    I get to do new stuff this week for what I am passionate about; helping women learn the principles for becoming successful entrepreneurs.


    Dressed to the nines and armed with a winning attitude!

    Dressed to the nines and armed with a winning attitude!

    So glad to be doing that. I have to write out little plans for everything I will be doing. I will be blogging tomorrow to table the progress I have made.


    P.S. I pray that I get home before 9 pm just like yesterday. Let me share the picture of the flyer, see if it will pique your interest.


    I think this is my best post this year


    I have the power to influence my world. It starts with my immediate environment or my immediate sphere of influence. I have always had coaches and I catch on very fast

    Something God put in me early in life, it is His very image.

    I see and I understand.

    I experimented with it as an unbeliever. When someone offended me, because I was smarter than them, and I am. It is just a statement of fact, it is simply knowing who you are. I would use my analytical mind and pick all the flaws about them and I have a terrific memory. I would tell them every single fault that I could see about them all without saying ‘you are mad‘, ‘you are crazy‘, ‘you are dumb‘ and the like. That is terribly childish. I am too smart for that. This usually made the said person very angry, and they would try to get back at me with physical strength or other stuff. i just laughed and walked away. Getting born again, the Holy Ghost said I would have to get rid of those habits if I wanted a relationship with Him. I did, so I learnt to look back at people offending me or being nasty and let it go.

    It wasn’t that I couldn’t hit back, I was blessed with intelligence enough to do them emotional harm that would last days, months and years but I had to drop that power if I wanted heavenly power. I wanted the fruits of the spirit so bad, I wanted to manifest the image of God that He said is in me. I would pray these scriptures Isaiah 11, and I will be quoting “...and she shall not judge after the hearing of her ear or the seeing of her eyes” I would be screaming it. “And she shall rule with equity…”. the scripture is about Jesus but because I am a heir of Christ, it is also about me. I would jump up and yell, “…she shall be blessed with the spirit of counsel and might and the fear of the Lord”. I was preparing for kingship. God has made me a king and everyday He is watching me to see.

    My daughter, knows she is a king, she will act like me, today“.

    As I went about my business, the Holy Ghost would say:

    You know what to do“.

    Sometime I would do right and do what the Holy Ghost is saying and all the while my flesh would be saying: “Forget that thing jare, hit back” I didn’t get it right all the time, I got the point, God is interested in this. He wants to see how I respond. So I would do right and be affronted all day after that. Then I would want to pray and I would be talking to myself. I would just say I am sorry and promise to do right the next day. I always had the desire to please God. So I prayed about it and I would go the next day, pleasing God at the forefront of my mind. I put God on my mind. I gave Him the place of importance. When I forget, I try to remember who’s important. Who am I giving first place?

    Well that’s that.

    I used my powers of being detailed and observant and I would note the flaws and then compliment them so that they would have the courage to try something their fears usually told them they couldn’t do. People basically fear failure and so are unwilling to try something new. It is why I am so good with teenagers. I believe that God is inside every man.

    Every man is the image of God. They have a spirit in them that is unbeatable just because they are made by God.

    I mean every man has the potential to be a nation builder or a devil incarnate. That is why it is so important who the teachers and the trainers and the coaches are.

    When I got born again, I needed to change the things that I was hearing. I am excellent at taking instructions. Someone preached about renewing your mind. You will never become bigger than the way your mind thinks. Before you start feeling helpless, your mind is your property, it doesn’t belong to anyone else. In this world your mind will either be controlled by God or by the enemy. You can determine who your surrender your mind to be ruled by.

    Have you heard of mind control?

    It is nothing new.

    Let’s take a scripture.

    Romans 12:2 says:

    2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God

    This means that you can determine who rules your mind. It is not by your will. Will power fails. It is by what you meditate on. If you didn’t read your bible this morning, you didn’t program your mind and so your environment will control you. Or the people you come across, their words and thoughts will control you and the things you do, say or the way you act.


    One practical thing I did was I bought two tape, one by Jaci Velasquez and another by Rachel Lampa. I got up by 5am every morning and I put on the tapes about God’s love, His kindness and His purpose for His creation. I put it on a radio. It wasn’t mine. It belonged to a lady called Folake. I talked with her and she didn’t have a problem with it. So every morning between 5 am and 7 am we all listened to that tape back to back. It was beautiful worship music. I was soothed and calm and a couple of people complained. I would go to the radio and lower. Over the next couple of months, I wasn’t always the one who put it on, Isioma got there before me or Pelumi or Peju. We were about 17-20 in that room and soon everyone of them was attending one fellowship or the other. The only thing I noticed was that when I went around raising money for something we wanted to do in my fellowship (That was my representation of building God’s kingdom at the time), they willingly gave. That was one of my lessons in adding value to the people around you. I added value to them and soon they came to associate God with love and not punishment.

    So when people ask, what do you do? I say I add value. I am a social media manager but I am also a builder, I know how to build people. I build them with God’s word. I am a restorer of broken places. I am a repair of the breach. I don’t complain or criticize, I build up become I am empowered by the Holy Spirit to do.

    So who are you going to influence today?

    I am 5 4′ inches tall. I am petite. I also know who I am. Because of the power of the Holy Spirit in me I am unstoppable. He is the one with the power but because I am willing He can operate on earth through me. I have the backing of heaven. I am also ruled by the love of God.

    How did he prepare me for that? God made me pray for the people who were good to me and also for those who offended me. I used to cry as I prayed for them in 2002 but with that I learnt to pray for any and everyone when God asked in spite of their actions. Being trained by the Holy Ghost isn’t pleasant but the rewards are eternal.

    God bless you all.

    I used to sing this song in catholic church…yeah I started knowing about God even then. I didn’t get to meet him till I was a full fledged teenager but I did have an inkling of who he was.

    “Your love is like a burning fire within my very soul, within my very soul… your love is like a burning fire within my very soul, within my very soul”

    Today is a day of joy

    Found this amazing blog

    I am at work writing a guest post about this amazing lady. Click here 

    I have gathered so many posts and I am using it to build something amazing that you will read and say, this has made my today worth it. Life can get so busy sometimes that the important things in life get pushed to the back.

    I am flowing finally. I want to speak of good things.

    The good book says:  

    For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].


    I used this as my memory verse when I wanted to get out of depression. Yes I have been depressed before. They tell me that it is a weakness of artistic people. I think it is a strength. I think it is us getting strung out looking for solutions. I was thinking, thinking, thinking of right things and wrong things. Finally I learnt to think about the word to get focused. Think on these things.

    Find your purpose. You will never be whole inside and out till you do

    Find your purpose. You will never be whole inside and out till you do


    I avoid nags and gossips and backbiters, they get me out of my rhythm and there is no profit to be had from hanging with them.

    I still love them but they are not allowed to take me to hell. I thought of true things. I had to understand that the word was truth. I thought of reverent things, things of honour and respect. I thought of seemly and right things. I thought of loveable and lovely things, it gave me good conduct. I thought of being winsome and gracious. I would say, my God is gracious and merciful and so am I (even when I was not). I thought of virtue and excellence and I would say, that’s me (even in tears). I thought of things that would cause praise if I did them and things I could praise God about.

    That was and is, the process I went through to renew my mind and the process I am still going through. I intend to grow everyday.

    I believe God’s word that my profiting will appear. It has appeared. (Ask those who knew me 14 years ago and then 10 years ago and then 5 years ago). I don’t get stuck, I make progress because the word of God is rooted in my heart.

    One with God is majority. You can still be the light in a dark and uncertain world. He lives in you.

    One with God is majority. You can still be the light in a dark and uncertain world. He lives in you.

    I believe in you too.

    You can be everything God says you are in His word.

    I had people who believed in me (not lip service because I have seen those ones too). I had people who believed in me and prayed for me and held on. I can believe in you and pray for you and hold on too.

    The virtues of God will develop in you too, as you yield to the Holy Ghost daily.

    God bless you.

    Many thanks goes to google images. I just type and search for the images I want. Thank you so much.

    Do read my post on blog tour.


    Monday Things… (June)

    Happy New Month

    You might not see it on my face (my bestie says I have an unreadable face but totally readable body language) but I am so excited! I truly am. My insides are bursting with joy.

    It’s the month of June. I have a sister and a niece born in the month of June and so many great friends also. So there is just something about this June that is making me go aaah! I believe a lot of phenomenal things will be happening this June. Just watch out for it.

    It has been a while. While I have been away, I started a novel.


    Picture courtesy

    I write it on the spot, I write it every wednesday.

    I have been trying to write since 1998. Yeah, I am not kidding. I finally discovered the secret to writing. Just write. Don’t plan to write. It can be found at Please read, comment and share it for your friends and loved ones.

    I am planning to start another that I will write and post every saturday. Happy reading!

    In other news… I discovered something.





    Picture courtesy

    I am still in training for entrepreneurship.

    I have visited trainings and many online sites to learn entrepreneurship. Many of these organizations promise a lot and it comes up empty.


    I found something that works. A friend directed me to the site, it was created to teach and empower you how to begin your business, stay afloat and still be flourishing past the fifth year.

    I hate statistics but it is a reality of our generation.

    8 out of 10 businesses don’t survive past the 5th year or something like that. Common sense says that you should find someone who has succeeded at business and get mentored. I picked a lady business person. So cliche.


    Here is what I have learned from her.

    The ‘Master Mind’ may be defined as: “coordination of knowledge and effort in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose.” Do you have your own business? Do you dream of starting one? Are you stuck somewhere in the middle? Do you simply want to get ahead in your current company? No matter where you are in your journey, this is the place for you to connect with like-minded people who can help hold you accountable for achieving your biggest dreams.

    Half the population in Nigeria is floating in this bracket. Did you hear the statistics on this? Over 50% of the Nigerian youth is unemployed. The other half, aren’t doing so good either. 

    Like i said, I hate statistics. What are the odds of beating the statistics? You need the God-factor and then you need to  be trained. If you refuse training, you will become a statistic.

    “Opportunities do not float like clouds. They are firmly attached to individuals. If you’re looking for an opportunity, you’re really looking for people. If you’re evaluating an opportunity, you’re really evaluating people. If you’re trying to marshal resources to go after an opportunity, you’re really trying to enlist the support and involvement of other people. A company does not offer you a job, businesses and people do.


    Can you hear that? All those crazy ideas you had about not needing people, uh huh.

    You do. This is the future baby!


    Picture courtesy:

    Yeah, if you have been in the business of entrepreneurship, you must have had that client that wanted something for nothing, can I get a witness?

    Maybe you also met that client that paid you peanuts for something. The business relationship didn’t go quite well, did it?

    It won’t and it can’t because people buy value. If you have value, but you are not getting value for your input, a disconnection would happen soon, or value would change to substandard.

    Who wants substandard?

    I vote nay!

    Point 1: You need people

    Point 2: You need to have value

    Point 3: You are looking for clients who are willing to pay for value.

    Opportunities flow through congregations of people. Those with good ideas.

    There is no such thing as scarcity. It only exists in the mind of that one without any imagination. There are always resources, our prayer is that our eyes will be opened to see the resources that God is sending our way. Be it a person, a friend, a prophet (I almost hated this word growing up because fake ones abound. I have met real ones too.) or whoever, the resources are around you, ask God to open your eyes and expect the best.
