First day of a beautiful new month.
I love September not just because it’s the month of my birth and it means we are getting deep into the #journeyto40 but because so many amazing things are tied to September. So many things I’m thankful for and many more I’m expectant for.
September 1st the very first day of the month always takes me back memory lane. It’s so pivotal to everything that is us. JUGN was born out of David’s Christian Centre and DCC began one Sunday evening September 1st 1996.
I was going through my phone then I saw this picture. I just stopped and shutdown literally. All activities paused…
It took a young 20 year old boy …with ONE word from God. Intoxicated with faith and vision and with an amazing selfless, faithful, loyal and honest armour bearer – pastor Peter Emeaghara.
Isn’t it amazing? Why did they stick to it? I know there were many ups and downs and I came on the scene when they were already 9 years old so it was already looking a bit like it. And even though I went through a few tough times with them, I still wonder how they must have felt when things were much crazier and required raw intense faith that God really did say..
As I celebrate their faith and courage it makes me wonder what would you have achieved if you were crazy enough to take God at his word 20years ago, 10 years ago or maybe even 5years ago? Just think about it
The reason why I’m asking (myself) these questions this morning is I’m sure like me there are many things God has told you to do which either…
1. You didn’t have the guts to
2. You didn’t have the faith to
3. You didn’t have the know-how or
4. You didn’t just have the “power” (abeg)
Now here’s the thing if you had obeyed since you may not have gotten it to perfection but you would have at least gotten closer to the mark.
Disobedience can be extremely costly.
You will be amazed at how much we alter the best plans simply by disobeying and just for the record
Disobedience doesn’t just affect you it affects all those whose destinies are tied to yours.
like I said you’d be amazed at the things you would achieve with a simple, “YES LORD!”
Who would have ever thought that I’d be here 10 years later planning another Just Us Girls Conference and oh! What a Conference it’s going to be.
I cannot believe how far God has taken this … I’ll have to come back and tell you all about it though but for today I’m just going to celebrate how beautiful September is to to me.
September 1st – DCC Celebrates
September 3rd – my wedding anniversary. The day I started one of the most exciting journeys of my life with the most amazing man in the world. I hope for the sake of my daughters the angels didn’t throw away the mold. I’m scared they don’t make them this way anymore.
September 20th – 23rd – Just Us Girls Conference
September 26th – the big 40.
And so many other amazing things that I will unveil as the days go by. September is going to be packed people. Get ready folks.
And oh! For the cupcake giveaway… I need to find a way to get it to everyone. Hmmm…
while I’m sorting that out. I already feel another give away coming up 😁
Okay people go out there and be crazy enough to say YES LORD! Today would be a great day to start
Just got home now. Time to unpack. Holiday over for the kids. I’m back to work mode. Got an amazing conference to plan.
