Dear Thelma...




Hi Thelma. I write this to you with a heavy heart. I am in a relationship situation that is making me lose faith in everything. I met a guy close to 5 years ago and we began our love story together. He is like my bestest* friend. Recently I spoke to mom about him and she went to ask for spiritual advice. Guess the news she came back with- Prophet said le boo would die young and that I should cut off all ties with him. I was soo saddened by the news. I respect my mom a lot because she has been my backbone and headrest ever since my dad left us. Boo says I cannot continue letting mom decide stuff for me. I am in my early 20s and he is of the opinion that I should live my life myself. I don't want to disobey mom but I want to be with le boo. Confused right? Plleeeeaaaaassssseeeee I really need advise.

  1. Who in this whole wide world has the right to decide whether someone dies young or not?

    This world is something else. This and many other reasons are why I'm very skeptical about churches. Personal salvation and personal spiritual upliftment still rules abeg.

  3. Seriously though...doomsday prophets....poster do you not know that God listens to all of us irrespective of the approach we use to go to him? Have you spoken to God by yourself and waited to hear from him? Are you even listening to him?

    In all simplicity, as is i would pick being in a good marriage for 20 years than a miserable one for 50. Seek the hand of God in your situation and listen to God. We must all die at some point, but this is definitely the wrongest approach with your mother and this charlatan.

  5. Whether the Prophesy is right or wrong is not exactly our concern, right? Good. Now to the real matter, when I take decisions entirely or partially in some instances, based on my conviction, I tend to accept the consequences more easily. Truly God enjoins us to honour our parents but in some cases we have to make them see reasons why we cannot afford to 'honour' their wishes.

    Meanwhile, let us try and turn the table in our heads. What if your mum was the guy's mother? What steps would she take if she heard that her son would live a short life? Accept defeat and allow him die young? Does the reaction of King Hezekiah when Prophet Isaiah gave him the 'death-sentence' prophesy come to mind? How would she react if her son's fiancee of 5 years left him for same reason? Would that not challenge her into taking some good actions?

    If I were in your shoes, I would not argue with my mother about the authenticity of the Prophesy but I would challenge her to do what she would if my man was her son.

    Wish you all the best.

    1. Poster having read what F wrote, I ask you to go to God, your mum should also go to God on his behalf like he is her son.

      PLS tow the line of Hezekiah when he heard the prophets message, Put God to test, do some 'Ori ki' for Jehovah on his behalf, after all God said "bring forth your strong reasons" and I know & believe that the power of life is in God's hand and also in your tongue, so profess it.

    4. Well said F.

      As an addendum, try to make your mom see reasons with your choice, if possible talk to another Man of God whom you respect and know to be genuine on your choice of decision who would weigh in on your mum's sentiments on this issue.

      It'd take some level of wisdom and discretion and you should apply those to ensure that as much as you make the major decisions in your dating relationship, you do not burn the supporting relationships that have always been your stronghold.

      In other news, haven't seen Sasha Bone's comment in recent times?

  6. Whose report will you believe?.. The prophets or God. Watin some prophets go course for this Niger no be small thing. Are you kidding me??. Turn your back and watch the prophets eldest daughter marry your guy. My dear, have a personal relationship with God. Close your door and kneel down before the Almighty God. His gifts makes well and adds no iota of sorrow. If its from God, he will live to fulfill his purpose on earth.

    Who is It that sayeth a thing and it will come to pass when the Lord has not commandeth it???
    God has spoken once, twice have i heard that all power belongs to God.
    Seek the face of the Lord by yourself.

  8. The easiest route to take in finding answers and solutions to our problems, doubts and struggles is the route we easily forget and sought another way.
    Dear poster, talk to God, He listens. He sacrificed his only Son so we won't need a mediator when we need to approach Him.

  9. I don't like this going to prophet ish that most people seem to depend on like it is their life force.

    So after the vision why did the prophet not pray against the untimely death or ask both parties to pray against it. In fact how am I to believe the prophet is a real MoG and not someone looking for whom to deceive.

    Op you have mouth and you have GOD go on your knees and pray. Even if such prophesy is true,ask HIM for a turn around. There is nothing He hasn't done before and your case isn't any different.

  12. Mehn.. these people ehn...

    Poster, just pray, pray well. Jesus did not come to the world and die just so we would continue to need a high priest to enter the holy of holies to get messages from God. In fact, he came so we can have the exact opposite so please, communicate with your God and hear what he's saying to you by yourself.

  13. Most of these prophets are false and if you do your research you'll see that they never give good news at first, cos if they did they you wouldn't have to patronize them for special prayers.
    If only we could learn to open our spirit to the Spirit of God then we wouldn't need to run around searching for the unknown, ask God for the spirit of discernment and the truth will come to you somehow. Pay attention to everything around you and especially your dreams, take nothing for granted. God will never allow His own make such mistakes without giving you a direct warning, concentrate more on building a personal relationship with Him.
    Finally beware the spirit of fear, if you're not careful you'll let what this "charlatan" said get to you and you'll live a life of horrible anxiety, avoid that as much as possible because that alone could actually kill you.

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…

#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....!

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.

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.
