In Moments Of Despair, I Pray.

It's so easy to sit in the comfort of one's home in the West and look at pictures of the havoc being wrecked in the North and commiserate and whisper RIPs. We've blamed our government enough, so far the blame hasn't produced any results. I looked at the pictures of today's Nyanya bombing and I knew that it's about time we humbled ourselves and cry out to God as a nation and ask for His intervention. These killings may be political but (in my opinion) everything is controlled in the spiritual realm. So this morning as I go before God in supplication as I do at midnight, I shall put my country first and commit her in prayers to God. 

May the souls of the departed rest in peace. 

But even in prayer I'm reminded; Faith without works is dead (James 2: 26);The President shouldn't just "condemn" these killings. He should be SEEN to condemn these killings.


  1. Exactly. Faith without works is dead. Jonathan you need to sit up. So far no update on the girls, even foreign celebs are getting involved. I hope that when GEJ notices that Nigeria is in the centre of the news for something like this, he will get serious.

  2. Thelma, the president has his own agenda and, unlike before, now flaunts it for all to see without care. Analyse what has happened since he came in 2010 (MEND & Boko haram), and you'll understand. I'll give you just two examples:

    1.) Since the problem of insurgency in 2009, Jona drafted an incompetent JTF team to tackle a subtle menace that claimed over 4500 lives before the declaration of State of Emergency, yet he didn't hesitate to draft over 5000 special forces and 7 fighter jets to combat insurgency in Mali.

    2.) We have reportedly over 10000 Nigerian refugees in Chad and Niger Republic because of this menace, yet Patience Jona decides that her *caring* arm should be stretched all the way to CAR refugees.

    Two classic examples of "charity begins outside". And you know why GOD won't help us in a hurry? Because, sadly, we're extremely sentimental to face the bitter truth that we have INCOMPETENCE and SELF-CENTEREDNESS glorifying the premises of Aso Rock. That trait has eaten deep into most Nigerians. The North has suffered immensely from this evil, yet when Abuja becomes the new venue, even celebrities remember that they should show solidarity. A colleague asked me last week what we should do now that there's a rumor about BH presence in Lagos. I asked him why he should fret and told him plainly that we should therefore see what Northerners have been seeing for the past 5 years, since no one has literally shown any concern until now. When it happens (which I honestly hope will not), no vex if Jona goes partying within 24 hours, as he's done....TWICE (after the slaughter of the school boys, and after the kidnap of over 200 girls).

    A bomb went off by 8pm, 02/05/14, and 6 hours later, Aso Rock is silent. He hardly cares. Sad and true.

    1. My brother, I feel you but the complexities of the Nigerian situation makes things a whole lot different and difficult.
      I am of the opinion that this is a fight for the soul of the nation not just what we are reading about, just sad that human lives are involved.
      Things may get crazier as we head towards 2015; right now, we are in a helpless situation in the country.

  3. My ultimate question i ask is: Why was the military quick to fight the biafran army but is slow to fight boko haram terrorists?

    1. What I wonder is, are we sure it's not the same people controlling the military that supplies the ammunition to boko haram. this whole thing is politics.

  4. Dear God,rescue sick n tired of bin sick and tired of all dis

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
