What If God Was One Of Us...



If God had a name, what would it be

And would you call it to His face
If you were faced with Him in all His glory
What would you ask if you had just one question...


...What if God was one of us

Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make His way home

Tryin' to make His way home
Like a holy rolling stone

Back up to Heaven all alone
Nobody callin' on the phone
'Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome


Who else used to love that song? 

Good morning guys! Having slept very late last night I only just woke up and felt this urge to talk to someone. I reached for my phones but realized that I had 0 units on both phones; I'm that sort of person that spends hours on the phone with my closest friends talking about absolutely nothing. Little wonder both phones had run empty... I thought about sending the security man to get me airtime but then I realized I wasn't quite ready to get off the bed yet, and there really wasn't any one I felt like talking to. 

That was weird, I really really had the urge to talk to someone and yet I couldn't think of anyone. And then I realized the person I wanted to talk to is God. BUT I did not feel like praying, not at all. I wanted a conversation (:a talk, especially an informal one, between two or more people, in which news and ideas are exchanged.), an actual conversation, to talk and be talked to. 

Dang! The things I would say if I could have a conversation with God; you know, sit with Him on a coffee table, sipping cappuccinos and eating scrambled eggs while we have that much needed chat. Oh the things I would say! 

I'd have a lot of questions about my life I'd like to have answered, but I would also want answers to some amebo questions; did all the disciples make heaven (except Judas of course), for instance... Oh, and how do you feel about the fact that you created ISIS militants? Are some people born gay? 

Guys, if you could meet with God in person and have a friendly chat with Him, what would you tell Him? And if you could ask just one question, what would you be? Who am I kidding, you'll have more than one question. LOL.

Another thing I'd like to know is this; would you be happy with Him, upset, mad, angry, and would you give Him a piece of your mind, whether good or bad?

Talk to me...



Good morning guys, while we cannot have that one on one, we still and will always have prayer. Remember to say your prayers if you haven't already done so this morning, and remember to pray for one another. Have a beautiful day.

  4. Only One question...

    Dear God, How do U view me or what am I to U?

    Simples!!!
    & No, I won't be sad or angry, i'll be a gazillion times elated that he even has MY time. A chronic sinner like myself. I'll listen 90% of that conversation!

    1. Ruthy, I wonder what you want some of us to call ourselves when you label yourself 'a chronic sinner'....a wretched sinner, maybe?

      Just kidding.

  5. I would be stunned should God appear to me. But what is important is if I would believe HE is God when HE appears. Who knows whether He has appeared to me before and I simply ignored HIM because I couldn't recognize HIM?

    The questions I would ask: did you know man would misbehave badly with the freewill you gave him? If yes, couldn't you have removed the freewill so that Eden would be forever? Must there be so much hardship and ills in the world? Why is man so devious? Would you consider creating us next time without a freewill?

    ('man' in this context refers to men and women).

    Yeah, the Bible gives some explanations but I would really want to hear from HIM.

  6. Just one qestion and I ll spend d whole time saying thank you, hugging him saying thank you sir 4 being a good father to me... The question being, why does it take quite a while for some miracles to manifest? Just this question!

  7. I do o! Just as you described, over breakfast at the beginning of the day or sometimes over cognac n a fag. I've been known to mumble to myself so most times people who know me put it down as that but it is an honest to heaven conversation! And he replies too! Not in words obviously but u'll b surprised how clear a conversation with God can get when you actually decide to 'listen'.

  9. One question: did you create me on purpose? I feel as if some of us, majority of us were just created with for no real reason.

  10. One question: why did my life turn out like this? And I wouldn't be angry,I wud go on my knees and ask for his forgiveness and also thank him for sparing the life of a sinner like me,not just any sinner a chronic one like Ruthy said. I love love love him. I love u lord and I wud like to have a one on one encounter with u just like Moses.

  11. Maybel e_hugs for u dear....But our life's is what we make of it ourselves....Have been bad but God still draws me closer to him....If I should meet him,I guess I would just stare until someone tells me am not been punked....

  12. I still love that song, Joan osborne right? If not for God the lot of us would have lost our minds in this tipsy turvy country. We just have to keep placing one foot in front of the other daily & moving forward. It always ends in praise.

  13. So refreshing to hear your admonishment to preserve God's place in our lives. Truth is I often fall short of that in my daily life.

    Ohh yes, I'd be happy with Him.

    To answer your question, let me borrow some lines from Buchi's 'Mma Mma' song
    ............
    Many many questions I want to ask
    Many things I want to say
    But first or all, I'd go to Him and say thank you Jesus

    If I had to ask a specific question it'd be to know His plans for my life and probably a sneak peek into my future.

    Good day God ( hope you are listening to TTB readers?)

  14. Hmmmmn. Seeing God face to face. I will thank Him for their always even when I least deserved it. Each time I think it has ended, He shows up.

    Wonderful God.

    One question: what elso do I need to add/do to make Heaven eventually.

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.

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

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
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

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…

Shhhhhhh....

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.
