Welcome to the sixth month of the year. The month of June. I like June 🙂
Why do I like June?
Is it because it is the sixth month of the year?
Is it because it is a gentle but sure reminder that God has faithfully brought us to the half way mark of such a glorious year?
Is it because June stands as a symbol that if God started out with you and has brought you this far that you are guaranteed he will finish that which he started?
Is it because it is an “ntoi” in the face of satan? That after everything he planned for the year that I’m still here, still standing, still strong and still testifying?
I like June for this and many more reasons. Funny, June is one of the few months that you can name a person after. You have a few “Aprils” but June, that’s symbolic of mid-way praise. That’s a good name abi? Just saying 😀
Ok, ok, ok, (like my darling ‘dassah would say and I wonder why one “ok” is never enough 😀 ) let me get straight to why I like June so much.
“…and in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth…to Mary (Mildred) and the angel came in unto her and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is wih thee: blessed art thou among women…Fear not for thou has found favour with God”- Luke 1:26-30
So for me especially since 2005 when this logos became Rhema in my life, June for me has become the month of visitation. I expect miracles, I expect angels (no not necessarily the ones with wings although that one sef no go bad). I expect to encounter helpers or meet people that will leave a lasting impact on my life and an un-erasable praise on my lips.
I know a lot of people claim that angels no longer appear but I beg to differ. I still encounter them daily. That little child that runs up to you and gives you a hug when you are feeling down, that person that stops and gives you a ride right to your doorstep in the midst of rain, no transport and lagos traffic (and how come they are coincidentally going your way?), that person who tells you the “opening” has closed but just submit anyway, that one that suddenly sits by you and makes a comment that you find is useful information later (and they were not really talking to you o! 😉 ).
I could go on but my point is angels exist everywhere. Let us be conscious this month of them “Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it”- Hebrews 13:2. Expect a visitation this month and I can guarantee you that your expectation will not be cut short and you will have a lot to be thankful for.
Speaking of being thankful, mark your calendars for Sunday, 16th of June 2013. When Women Worship comes up. Honestly ladies this is one meeting you do not want to miss. Its simply tagged “IMELA” and in a year full of testimonies like this 2013, I’m sure you have a lot to be thankful for. I’ll be sharing my own “thanks-imony” so please come out and spread the word. Time is 4pm. No red carpet. No african time. Just 4pm prompt. Here’s the flyer but come back tomorrow and I’ll give you the full gist about the event, ministers and why we chose to do “IMELA”.
…And why I have been A.W.O.L on my blog *covering my eyes* sorry guys. I love you too.
