Did you miss me? Huh?! Did ya? Did ya?
Well I’m back and I definitely missed you guys.
I cannot believe how long it’s been though
Wait let me get through these thick cobwebs and I’ll be right back.
I cannot believe I stayed away this long. Wow! I started out thinking I will blog tomorrow then another tomorrow then a next tomorrow.
To be honest at some point I felt like selling my blog. I didn’t feel up to it. Like my life was spiraling out of control. Even though I kept getting messages from people about getting back on my blog I just couldn’t. I had to take time out to actually live not just write about it. I also had to take time to renew my self like the eagle does after 40 years. Let’s just say I needed a new beak, new talons and definitely new feathers. I needed new strength to be able to soar
It’s been the hardest last six months of my life but as always the plan remained smile and show up…. Smile and show up …and that I did. I smiled and showed up daily. Not even sure where my days began or ended until when I began to feel ready to soar again. Ready for new things
Funny enough today as I sit on a plane typing this heading home to my children whom I haven’t seen in three weeks because I travelled for work and I couldn’t take them. God! I’ve missed them and It’s been such a crazy three weeks. Lagos – Doha – Houston – Dallas -Houston – Alabama – Atlanta – Doha -Lagos. Phew! My head is reeling just writing it imagine having to live it.
Despite all the movement, I feel like in the last six months that I’ve been in a very deep sleep …kind of like sleeping beauty.
Only that my Prince Charming or is it knight in shiny armor? (Honestly I forget how the story goes) was right beside me all the while and I was getting true love’s kiss constantly.
Anyway the important thing is I’m awake now so I’m shouting a very loud GOOD MORNING my darlings.
After all as they say in an old Nigeria proverb my grandmother loved “it’s your morning when you awake”
So here I am AWAKE!!!
And for the rest of the year I’m definitely staying woke.
Interestingly I foresee an extremely busy year for me. I promise to let you in on it especially if I feel at any point in time that it can help you in any way in your own lives.
For me though there are a lot of things already in the works.
I will let them out bit by bit so come back often guys okay?
So anyhow, There’s already a lot lined up for March and I will be back to share with you in detail but here’s one major thing to look out for
Today God dropped this thought in my head as I was missing my kids
At first I didn’t get it until I realized that God was reminding me that as Christians we must not be ignorant of the devices of satan.
Listen to me satan is not after your marriage just to break your heart. He’s trying to take away the one thing that God is after
God wants your children but satan wants them too. He wants your legacy, satan wants to be sure there’s none. The easiest way to do that is to mess up your marriage. You need to understand that BROKEN MARRIAGES PRODUCE BROKEN CHILDREN.
Now what are you going to do about that?
Let’s talk a bit. Settle down for a moment.
Usually I don’t see most people walk away because they messed something up it’s always because the other person messed it up. So a marriage is usually destroyed after statements like these…
“I just don’t love him anymore”
“I’m not attracted to him anymore”
“He doesn’t make me happy ”
“He’s cheating was on me”
All totally legit scenarios but the truth is You don’t sell your car because there’s no gas so why end your marriage because there’s no love.
What do you do? In both cases you fill it up.
How do you fill it up?
Have you ever heard this saying?
You fall in love with whom and for whom you pray.
Well this March we are definitely working on our love. I’m going to be praying for my husband for many reasons.
– I believe that the more you pray for your husband the more likely he is to do better in life and marriage.
– I believe that the more you pray for your husband the better he gets and the less complaining you have to do
– I believe that the more you pray for your husband the more he learns to live by Gods principles and the Holy Spirit does such a great work that he learns to live with you with understanding that way his prayers are not hindered… meaning he makes progress and both of you are really happy. See? It’s a win win.
– I believe that the more you pray for your husband the better you become at winning battles in marriage because you begin to see who the real enemy is
– I believe the more you pray for your husband the more God shows you pictures of his future and what part you should play in it.
– I believe that the more you pray for your husband the less likely you are to walk away from him or your marriage.
But even more importantly I believe the more you pray for your husband the more God changes YOU. yes! You. He makes you a better person and an easier person to live with. You’d be shocked that you may be the problem after all not even your husband. 😊
And before the so-called “feminists” who don’t even know the meaning of the word come for me with “why is it always the wives that pray. Why can’t the men pray for marriage too. Isn’t it their marriage?” Well this is my stand.
I WILL PRAY FOR MY HUSBAND EVEN IF HE NEVER PRAYS FOR ME.
Because I’m focused on the prize: Legacy.
Because you only avenge disobedience after your obedience is complete
Because you don’t get a room cleaner by refusing to keep it clean because your room mate doesn’t. You get to live in that house too and if you don’t want to fall ill because of the germs then you clean and hope your room mate catches on. I honestly hope you get this cleaning analogy 😂😂
And finally Because what’s the option really?
So ladies, I will be back to tell you how this goes and other stuff lined up for March. I will be back. Hope you will too.
Help me spread the word that even though it took a minute …. we are back. 😁
