I died and went to Heaven

If you had just 7 days in Heaven, what would you do?
what questions would you ask?
who would you want to see?
what happens when you realize the one you thought would be there isnt?
As you enter God's Big House, what thoughts would fill your mind?
What would you say as you watched your loved ones from above?
What would be your 1st request?

So many questions, and you arent alone, many times I've wondered about Heaven, and mostly it was to escape a certain problem I was facing at the moment, thinking in Heaven it wont be like this, like would be "so much easier". That was till I realized that I've 365/366 days a yr in Heaven everyday here on earth! Crazy you are probably thinking, how can we find Heaven when there is so much negativity and craziness in this world, where poverty, disease, war and crime all reign supreme. Yes my dear friends, in the midst of all that, Heaven still exists, and thats because Heaven lies within you. We all believe God=Heaven right? So what happens when you invite Him in, and He takes off His shoes, and gets comfy in your soul, and makes His bed. We know the phrase "Home is where the heart is". So if you bring Him into your heart, and He makes it His home, then it makes sense that its Heaven right?

Really think about it, you really dont have to wait till eternity to ask all the questions you would in Heaven. You can start today, spill your guts out to Him, your worries, concerns, your fears. In the midst of the chaos that exist in this world, you can be in Heaven wherever you go. You can be at peace, you can find joy, love, wealth all within because you are in Heaven. My friends say I smile too much, many wonder why I can still laugh when I'm standing in a burning flame sometimes, but one thing they dont understand is that yes it hurts, yes it burns but only for a sec because then I remember exactly where I am in...HEAVEN, and then I join the angels in singing and rejoicing and praising His name. I bring out Heaven and I experience all the joys and heavenly promises here on earth.

David said it best in Psalm 27: 13
"I am still confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living."

Your 7 days in Heaven starts today, and continues every week, but 1st have you invited Him in?

Today I became a slave...

Today I became a slave…a slave to Christ. I became born again at the age of 11, though I never really understood the true meaning till my later teen yrs, infact I think I did it multiple times over the years before it really sunk in and even then I never surrendered 100% to Christ, on some days it was 85%, sometimes 95% and I’m sure even sometimes barely 70% (in my eyes, to God it was probably 5%), but today I know even 99% is not enough. My body is His temple, so I will not abuse it or put it through any harm. My mouth speaks to His glory so I will not defile His name by letting anything spill out of it. Today I gladly give up the world’s “freedom” for Christ’s shackles. I lay myself down for Him to use to fulfill His purpose for my life. I will not try to force anything, or fight a losing battle, I will make it a daily battle and remember to raise up my hands and surrender. He loved me first, He loved me before my parents even knew I existed, He knows my finish line before I even decided to run the race, so I give up…God you win, I give up! I am on day 10 of the purpose driven life and in the past week, I feel renewed, my soul is lifted and I feel that feeling inside that happens when you are in love, that tingling within when you miss the person, when you want to be in their presence. I’m in love with God and it has me excited, I know that the blessings He has in store for me in my life are tremendous and that it is more than I can. Paul knew this all too well for 1 Corinthians 2:9 says “Eyes have not seen, ears have not heard, no mind has conceived, what God has prepared for those who love Him”. Ephesians 3:20 also says God is able to do exceedingly more than we can ever ask or imagine.

Today I told God that if there is any problem or negative situation that has to happen in order for Him to fulfill His glory and purpose in my life, He should not take it away! Even the situation I am going through now, I thank God for the trials and tribulations of recent times because I know it is done to fulfill your purpose in my life. For it is written in 1 Peter 1: 6-7 and I know that all this is happening so that my faith which is worth more than gold may be proven genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor to God. I know He is smiling as He is seeing as I am handling it, as my faith is going through the fire, He is pleased with me, and that gives me great joy because it means I am on the right path towards the fulfillment of His purpose for my life. To you reading, I say let go, and let Him take control, it is obvious that your own efforts are in vain, you shed tears every night, you are hurting to no avail, so go ahead and give up, He’s just waiting. If you had been jobless for years and I tell you I have an open well-paying position in my company and all you have to do is fill out the application and turn in your resume and you’ll get the job, will you do it, or will you tell me, the owner of the company “No I don’t trust you, I will not apply”. Sounds silly doesn’t it?

If you need further confirmation, before you sleep tonight, ask Him to reveal Himself to you. If you doubt that He is God, if you doubt that He created the heavens and earth and everything within, if you doubt that He is real, get on your knees and cry out to Him in faith.

“Lord, I am hopeless and weak, you said you take glory in our weakness because it is then that your mighty power is revealed. Show yourself strong, I need to hear from you, I want to hear from you. I know I have tried, but my best is not enough, so I give it to you, I confess my sins so mold me into your miracle. When I awake I want to be a new person in you, I want supernatural encounters to happen in my life starting today.”

Ask Him in faith, and I guarantee you even the blessings of that next day will be a start of your testimonies of Him working in your life. I can confidently say that if after you do that, He doesn’t respond, go ahead and discredit everything I have written. Yes I am that confident in just how great and mighty He is like that. He loves you completely, and wants to bless you like He did Noah. He is THE reason and the best CEO. Even as I go through the fire right now, I cannot wait to see the end results. I am like a shareholder eager to see my company release its end of the year report! Only this time around, my company is owned by the Big and the Strong, the Powerful and the Great…God! To think I never invested a dime in the company, He did the work for me and you by investing His son. You own shares too, when I picked up my share certificates, I saw yours with your name on it, all that is waiting is for you to claim it.

“I die everyday” (1st Corinthians 15:31), at the break of each dawn, I will take up the cross and follow because it is the best way I can thank my God!

Tough times, but victory is mine

Like many others, I have encountered challenging and trying moments especially recently, but I am thankful because my faith has grown, and is at the level where even I feel now that I can walk on water. Though I have to be careful and not be like Peter and have doubts, least I start to sink. (Matthew 14)
I realize the power I have in me, and the authority God has given me through Christ Jesus (Luke 10:19), and Psalms 91 shows me that nothing can harm me. Like David, I can now face my Goliaths daily knowing that God has gone ahead of me and fought and won the battle for me. I call things that arent as though they are because that proves the existence of my faith. I pray without ceasing because 2 Thessalonians tells me to, and being a child of God, I've my garment of righteousness, and James 5 says that the prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. So like Job I decree what I want(Job 22:28) here on earth and it is written in the books in heaven!!! Yes now that is Faith and the power I have in my God, and which you have to if only you can believe! When I pray I know I will have what I want (Mark 11:24) because God has good plans for me (Jeremiah 29:11), so I continue to read His word daily because there is life in it, and it fuels my soul, and because faith comes by hearing and hearing comes from the Word! Today I am a stronger woman of faith than I was yesterday so I get even closer to seeing His glory and miracles take effect in my life!
There is fire burning around me but I'm dancing like David, happy and content because in due time, my harvest season will be here and others will understand the real reason for my "madness"

The key ingredients to success

I stumbled across Proverbs 31 and I found out everything I ever need to know as a woman. If I ever accomplish even half of that, my husband will be proud to call me his wife and my children will speak volumes about their great mother.

Which brings me to another point, do you really know who you are, can you really say that? What is your blueprint in life, what are your guiding principles, do you ever think you will be able to follow them successfully?
What is your passion? what is the source of your passion? What is the fuel for that passion? In what ways do you recharge that passion?
What is your vision in life? when you look in the mirror what do you see? are you truly happy with what you see?
Do you have the wisdom needed to fully comprehend that which u see?
Look deeper again in that mirror, picture yourself in another yr, 3yrs, 5yrs, 10yrs, what should be your reflection?

If you can successfully answer these questions, you are steps ahead from most.
As for me, my faith and hope makes me whole. My blueprint in life is the Bible, my guiding principles stem from that. My passion is to find and do God's purpose for my life, my source is His Holy Spirit within me, which directs my daily steps. I'm only human, and exist in my external environment, when I get tired, and society tries to interfere, I turn back to my source, and humbly plead for His strength. My vision is to do what I can to acknowledge His name. I am on my way to becoming a physician, and will only serve as a medium so that others can praise His name, and see that He is good. When I look in the mirror, I dont see myself, I see the woman He has called me to be, and I am happy. With each passing min, I get closer to being that woman, the one that others call supernatural, the one who appears to the worldly mind as High and Mighty. Everyday I pray that He enables me to see the ability of that spiritual wisdom which He has given to me.
Dont let life catch you running around aimlessly, the world will catch up with you. I create my own world within that which I live in. By doing that, I get to enjoy the goodness of God even in the land of the living. I will be that woman who you look up to and wonder, how did she do it? and I will tell you 3,5,10yrs down the line, exactly what I am telling you now.


These are the key ingredients for success in life. I like free stuff, we all do! (naija people, shey who no like awoof!), so I get all mine from that Rich Man upstairs who remains the greatest philanthropist of all times! Better go get yours!

Fear be gone!

Jeremiah 1:8-9

Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, says the LORD."
Then the LORD put out his hand and touched my mouth; and the LORD said to me, "Now I have put my words in your mouth.

I love this verse, it speaks volume, and in an instant, the water hose comes out and the fire is extinguished.

What does it mean to you to be afraid?

Do you give fear more credit than you need to?

What is life?

These were some inspirational words that were passed onto me, the gong of truth is resounding in my ear.

1) Life is a Martial Art. Pick your style. It's not a team sport. It may seem so, but when you enter the arena and take your fighting stance you are alone, just like at birth. And when the dance is done, you will leave the stage, alone! The "crowd", if you even have one, may cheer, cry, boo, applaud. They may be silent, they may stand up and walkout. They may be only one person or a stadium. There may be nobody. But, life is not a team sport, the crowd as any professional athlete must be tuned out, and when you're done, you're on your own. (CN)

2) "Work as if even God can't help you and when you're done, work some more. When you have nothing left, pray as if God is the only that CAN help you, when you're done pray some more. When you have nothing left, either way, settle down and enjoy the outcome, even if it's not what you expected, it's always what you deserve." (CN)

Questions to ask
Have you picked your own style?
Do you know how to pray an effective prayer?

A love letter

This letter was spurred by random thoughts, and while this isnt written to any one in particular, it is for him that will appear when the time is right. So I've chosen to write this down in anticipation of that. God willing someday I'll get to pass it on.
This is something I've always wanted to do, and it will be a collection. This is part 1

My dear, though my eyes have not been graced with your beauty, I know you are here. The Artist is still working on His masterpiece and will reveal His work to you in due time. There are some stray marks that need to be erased and my radiance though bright, needs some added sparkle. I think of you and I smile, because I can imagine you, the treasure hunter in search of his prized diamond. Hidden among the rest, my beauty catches your eyes as you reach forth and grab in a hurry.

Look in my eyes, and see that gem created by the man above, stare deeper, and catch a peek of his wondrous works, close your eyes and see Heaven. Our souls make that connection, the reunion of what is precious, yet few. The electricity creating jolts, the currents racing rapidly lighting our paths as we journey together through life. I stand on your right as your lover, your woman, your friend, urging you on triumphantly. Each tear drop a symbol of my commitment to our love, each drop a symbol to that which is true. As you hurt, the pangs of pain tear through within as I hold you close so that you are reminded that my love is yours.

Every night as I look up towards Him that creates miracles, I smile, ever so grateful, reminded of my lifetime blessing in you. My path, our path of I stumble, you pick me up, kissing my bruises and we journey on towards the everlasting light. I remain on your right.
This is for you my love
Your virtuous woman

Let His Light shine

Through trials and tribulations,
Let His light shine.
When men scorn you,
and clear path turns dusty,
when the clouds appear
and the thunder resounds clear,
when the drops start to fall,
and you've shed your last one,
Let His light shine.
For only He knows
the whys, whynots and tomorrows.

My special power

"Then Jesus said, "Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God? So they took way the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, "Father, I thank you that you heard me"
John 11...The story of Lazarus, this was Jesus talking to Martha his sister.

When you believe in God, you become a force to be reckon with. You posses the power to make things happen by faith. The power within, that of the Holy Spirit that is able to raise the dead, and heal the sick is in you. Jesus said in Mark 11:22, "Have faith in God" He went on to say that whomsoever desires anything, if when they pray for it, they believe they have received it, they shall have it. This is the power to move mountains, to make streams appear in the desert, the power to create miracles in your lives and those of others.

power in the Word,
because He is the Lord.

power in His name,
because He is the same.

power within me,
because I am in He.

Thats power! For that I thank you Lord!

Sunday, March 11, 2007

Say MY name!

The power in the name,
that precious name,
that uplifting name,
that brings magnificent glory.
It is mine, ALL mine,
Clark Kent would envy me.
For I can move mountains,
I can bring healing,
I exist in the supernatural,
I'm in His righteousness,
blessed in the mighty name of Jesus!

I believe

I believe
because He believes in me.
naysayers whisper,
friends wonder.
Yet my cup stays full,
over flowing in the desert,
invoking a mystery for many.
Sometimes my faith waivers,
I am only human afterall but
my manna reminds me
and my joyous tears tell my story.
I believe...


That parasite that leaches on,
sucking every drop that flows
through these veins.
Ready to get comfy and take over?
not in my lifetime.
You had your sec now be gone!
My AK47 is nice and ready...

You can dream too

I dream
not because of what I have,
or who I will be,
but because of what I was,
and who I am.

(c) God's child

It calls my name

I hear it
even as it calls my name.
Close your eyes,
and if you reach forth,
you might be able to catch it.
The longing is enough for now
maybe another day,
marinated happiness tastes better anyway.

I fly...

I fly to an unknown destination
a journey of many tomorrows.
I soar, feeling my body being lifted up.
He guides, I follow
sometimes attempting to push the clouds
till it pushes me and I drop and the ground my pillow.
I shed a tear, and He smiles.
Bandaids are a child's bestfriend.
Lesson learned? maybe so maybe not.
He lifts me up again this time my wings are experienced,
they spread out far and wide,
the wind calls my name, it knows who I am.
It knows I'm blessed, and I smile.

(c) God's child

I am thirsty...

Thirsty for faith, growth and love.
for miracles and possibilities.
as my knees touch the ground
and my eyes look upwards
from where I draw my strength,
I smile...
Nothing can ever go wrong with me
and I truly believe that.

"He who dwells in the shelter of the most High, shall rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust"--Psalm 91

I smile, and my soul feels warm within
