And So This Is Christmas

And So This Is Christmas


Every year we get asked “So, what does Christmas mean to you?” And we usually list things such as ‘helping, love, family, joy’ & last but not least ‘Happy Birthday Jesus’. But I recently rewatched one of a Pastors, My Pastors (Rev. Chris Oyakhilome) Christmas messages and he put it in the most simplest, truthful and fun way using an Acrostic format. 

See below please. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿพ

All these wonderful things for one day!๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜ญ

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” – Isaiah 9:6 

Christmas all began because God loved us so much and He wants us to spread, share and show that love to everyone. Jesus came to give us life, that God-Kind of life, full of love and success and lacking in nothing! 

God is a Father, Our Father and all He wants us for us to be Happy and Love Him and Others like He loves us & He sent Jesus to help us to do this. No Father wants their child to Suffer! And Jesus being born and alive in us today is God’s way of making sure that never happens๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ. 

So, this is just a short post to say Merry Christmas, don’t forget that CHRIST is the reason for the season and I hope you had a wonderful or are having a wonderful time with the three F’s:

Family, Friends & Food!๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜…

And I pray that your day is filled with laughter & Joy ๐Ÿ˜„โœจ

Remember to always show love โค๏ธ, help others๐Ÿ‘ซ & Share the Gospel – the Good News with someone today๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ!

It’s a Man’s World

It’s a Man’s World

Welcome to the month of February!๐Ÿ™Œ

And the year just keeps getting better.๐Ÿ˜€

January was a busy month, as everyone was getting back to business and it seems like it flew right by. We shouldn’t loose that momentum but continue to go upwards and forwards, only stopping to bring others along on the Journey of Success with us!


Today’s blog is about you. Well, everyone on Earth that is. ๐ŸŒŽ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ

It’s easy sometimes – especially when allowing ourselves to be influenced by things going on in the natural world, other people and our senses – to think “Why bother praying?” Or “Why bother doing anything at all? Surely God sees and knows what’s going on in the World, why does he need us to speak up or act before he does anything?”

Trust me, I used to have these moments a lot, when I’d just think “But God, you know what’s happening, why are you allowing this?” But then if I’m thinking this that means I must be doubting God which I shouldn’t be because I know there’s nothing he cannot do. Which led me to the conclusion that God has already done all he needs to do, it’s me who has to play my part.

You see the thing is, this is a man’s world. And God needs us to pray for certain matters concerning this world before He can intervene. When we pray, we are making it possible for God to help us.

If there’s a problem, God needs your consent to step in. Just like if someone’s house was robbed, the police would still need their permission before they can get involved and go forward with the case, because the house belongs to that person. So wondering why God doesn’t just “make the pain go away” when you haven’t asked or spoken to Him about it is like wondering why the police haven’t solved the case when they haven’t been given permission to be involved in the investigation.

God wants you to depend on him, but you can’t do that if you won’t let him in all the way.

Having said that, This life that we live on earth is our responsibility, which means we’re the ones who need to act to do something about what goes on down here. We need to use the power God has given us to change situations, and circumstances. God’s part in all this is to guide us through His word and The Holy Spirit, so that we make the right decisions. Life doesn’t just happen to you. Everything we are today is based off choices we’ve made.

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.ย 

ย – Deuteronomy 30:19ย 

You don’t like how things are going with your life and around you? Then choose to change it! We can be anything we want to be, successful, rich, smart, healthy. So don’t settle for anything less than the best! God wants us to be all these wonderful things and much more, but we have to want it too and make that choice to act on and live by His word so that we can be all the God wants us to be.

Instead of feeling sad about what’s going on in the world, pray about it and inspire others to turn to God so that they may join you in prayer and take action also ensuring that better life. Take charge of your life and don’t let outside circumstances run it for you, because it is from within that the power comes from to make that change you want/need.

The word of God makes your life glorious, therefore if you live by it, there’s no way you or anything concerning your environment (in and including the earth) can be a failure.

Think positive, speak positive, act positive, be positive. ๐ŸŒž

Complaining about what’s happening around us rather than doing something about it will not stop that thing we’re complaining about from happening.

We’re the light of the world, we’re the ones bringing hope to people and asking them to have faith. This world is God’s creation and it is ours for the taking.

Enjoy your week!

*I was actually going to talk about Love this week. However after being inspired by the daily devotional Rhapsody of Realities by Rev. Chris Oyakhilome for the month of February, I decided to change the topic last minute because the Word I’ve been receiving for this month has been too much to ignore.*

What is inside of you? – Iย 

Oh, I’ve never had a boyfriend
And no, I’ve never been kissed –
Yet to ‘Everyman’, I seem to lose myself a bit.
Searching for a love that can make me complete,
Even though in me I have the one that none can defeat.
I’m searching for a touch so warm and strong
And yes, I know my hands were made to lift –
So I say: I’m good, I’m not looking, I’m not searching,
I’m content.

But, my mind is racing with thoughts that I should not have
Memories of experiences flooding my mind that I have not had –
Longing for someone to confine in.
I tell myself “In me is the comforter”
Still I scroll through whatsapp, scan through snapchat
To find something, to find someone, to feel anything –
Whilst confessing that I’m not moved by my feelings,
Yet, here I am, entertaining these ‘demons’…

tbc.

SSAW note – 
The person has chosen to be anonymous for now, but I love this first part of the poem as I think it describes the feelings and thoughts of a lot of youth today, especially those in Christ. We know who we have, and we talk right, we just have to remember to act on The Word too.
