About Last Night; An Unexpected Turn. (Would You Love Him If You Didn't Need Him?)






Hey guys, so as y'all know last night I was in the mood for something, and someone different. It was hilarious I tell you! But people don't listen now, do they? Everyone that contacted me, save one, are people I already know. What? Did y'all think I was joking when I said what I said? Anyhoooooo to be honest the thought of getting dressed and glammed to go hang out with someone I've never met seemed a bit much, but I'm hoping we'll be friends and maybe some weekend we could do drinks...

So among the 'contacters' from last night was an ex. Interesting night, last night. Here's what happened; I was all dressed up to go have a drink or two with said ex when another friend hola'd and reminded me that HOTR had night vigil last night. My people, that's how I ditched the makeup and short dress and put on jeans, a tee shirt, a cardigan and a shawl, and hit the church! Hehehehehe. Yeah, that's where I turned up last night.

As you might have figured by now I didn't go alone. (Totally unrelated, but 30(s) is turning out to be much more exciting than the 20s. Who woulda thunk it!?). When we parked the car, my companion made a comment premised on an observation he made on the walk from the car park to the door. He also attends HOTR occasionally so he's words were quite founded. He said to me, "did you notice how almost all these cars here tonight are very ordinary?". "Ordinary how?" I asked. "Compare the cars you're seeing here now to the usual cars you see in this church on Sundays". I looked around and I could see his point. He continued; "it's funny, on Sundays you'll see mainly G-Wagons, Range Rovers, LRs and other luxury cars. This night we're seeing only saloon cars, and most of them old or beat up, at that". I looked around, he was right. I mean there were a few "nice" cars but otherwise, this was not the normal HOTR car park look.

"So why aren't those ones in church tonight? Because they have money, and all the things that they need and can't be bothered with the stress of coming for night vigil? And the ones who came for vigil are the ones who obviously really NEED help from God, the ones that are hustling?...." He seemed really keen on this; where were the owners of the multi-million rides? Why did it seem like the saloon owners were the only one present at vigil?


Why do you think this is?


Makes me wonder; if you didn't really need God, would you still love Him the way you do? (And no, I'm not suggesting that our needs are solely financial). 

I wrote this yesterday, last night refers to Friday night. 

Have a beautiful Sunday guys, it's the last one of the Month.

  1. It is generally known that the poorer a man is, the higher the likelihood he wants to be closer to God. Most people believe their greatest problem in Life is money, and frankly when you have money or have figured it out, whats the point in sleeping in church? I can't bet if you ask 10 people what their prayer points include- financial prosperity will top the list for at least 6 in thise 10. In a depraved society like Nigeria- it will more than likely even be 8 of 10. Your friend's theory is correct for the most part.

  2. What if the ppl with d BIG cars are same ppl with d small cars? They cud hav just preferred to use their less flashy cars at night for safety reasons. After all, ppl have more than 1 cars right?. That's my thought sha.

    1. That's an interesting thought but let's think about it for a minute... You must be insinuating that the 100's of big car owners all opted for smaller cars. Generally if Mercedes Benz G63 AMG is your big car then your small car would be something in the range of a Toyota Highlander or maybe even any car later than 2008, definitely not a 1999 Sienna or an End of Discussion or Baby Boy, they just don't mix. Have you ever seen a Rolls Royce owner drive a corolla at night? Not me sha

      Mind you, most of the same people that went with the ordinary cars won't go to vigil once they have been blessed enough to switch it up. They say everything happens in stages but it's sad that we think we can outgrow being humble before God or gain material success to the point where we think we don't need Him anymore.

  3. Hmmmm! Sometimes we don't seem to understand how much we need God until trouble shows up.

  5. You have a gift for writing, and getting thoughts out of people. You should nurture and treasure it!
    To the question, we have a culture of going to God as the person who solves our problems. And He IS that person. But God is also our friend, and I wish more people will see Him that way. That person whom when you've got some spare time, you can just call Him and have a chit chat session, with a chuckle here and there.
    I wonder where the modern day church has gone wrong. We have a sort of fast-paced microwave-type christianity just Bing-Bang-Bang. go to church on Sunday morning, ask Pastor to pray on Sunday afternoon, see answer to prayer on Monday, give Testimony in church Bible study on Tuesday, then out of the church on Wednesday, till we have another problem, and we can do it all again.
    I wonder how many modern day christians have actually experienced God. Forget the church (building). Forget your Pastor, Deacons. Forget that brother and sister that do follow-up with you in your house. Just you and God alone. How many christians in the church today can, when all the fanfare surrounding christianity in the modern sense is stripped away, say that they have felt God, they have known God... that they have experienced God. How many?
    Because when you know God, it would be an utter delight to be in His presence, with or without everything else that comes with going to a church service in 2015.

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!
