This is an old note I wrote last year and I thought I should share it with you guys over here
.......Saying this because there are some words that I wrote here which I've already discussed on my blog before or rather what you guys know me for already.
It was one of those days when you wake up to see another day.
you don't have plans that are enough to get you on your feet but you've
got to rise on your feet and get going
It was on a day like this I wished I could completely get rid of this flesh and hear God properly...
am i kidding...I cant recollect if I was thinking about God presently.
all that was on my mind was NEPA has done it again so get the spoilables
out of the fridge and NEVER ever depend on them
so, I opened the fridge and packed everything...mayonnaise,etc..don't
mind me, I remember the mayonnaise quite clearly because of the creamy feel on
bread and It wasnt my intent to watch it get spoilt.
had been complaining of me neglecting the fridge and due to the
constant supply of normal light in the last few days, i simply ignored
her. I was beginning to wonder when i had become so lazy that even the
thought of the fridge cleaning up itself wouldn't have been a bad idea.
now, I looked at the open fridge and the smell emanating from it was
enough to make me frown and shake my head..""GIRL!!!!..you have to get
this little equipment cleaned....and whatever happens after that is not
my business.if the light comes again, fine..if it doesn't..fine..at
least, its cleaned and if opened, no smell is going to greet me again.
when I got my Savlon, water, foam and sponge to work as determined, I
cleaned it so well I extended to the body, my stickers i had placed on
it glaring back at me making to remember how efficient I was in placing
stickers on a dirty fridge. i was glad though..it made me remember my
hottie..(Winnie the Pooh)..
okay..now lets get
serious...it was at that point in my life something clicked in my head
and my mind..CHANGE!!..God was using the scenario to point to me how we
HUmans refuse to change when told.Sometimes, the spirit speaks, God
tries to call our attention to something in our lives we need to change
but we simply ignore it. and then He brings the INEVItable...(Forgive me
for classifying PHCN"S light taking prank as INEvitable in Nigeria but I
guess thats what its coming to).and then we feel so bad and terrible
and thats when we smell a change and we realize that we have to get on
our feet and do our GODgiven task. SOMETIMES,we've stayed too long on a
mountain..(imagine the israelites wasted 40yrs)and all God wants us to
do is CHANge!!!...MOVE!!!..get something doing and please!!!...do as i say
not the other way round..God wants us to change...dont do religion..be a
Christian.Religion does the same thing without bothering what God
thinks.Christianity is doing all that pleases GOD and wanting him to say
something!!..ANYthing!..Remember when we were kids and had a puppy who
would jump, bark and hang its tongue out to lick your leg.it would wag
its tail madly and if possible, jump on u to get your attention.
sometimes, those silly dogs don't relent till u pat their head and
say...''hey little guy or big gurl..good doggie or u carry them and
smile at them, pretending like you wanna kiss them when you're so not
going to!...well, thats what Christianity is.you do all you can to Get
God's attention and when you do, you'e glad, because whose time would
you rather appreciate in God and MAn.....i choose GOD!...i dont know
about you but all God wants some of us to do is CHANGE!
like MY fridge and I, i heard God speaking to me in a simple, but yet
illustrative way that got me thinking..don't let HIM PUSH you before you
