What's The Point???





Biola had her prayers answered before she even prayed for them. You know when someone or something happens and they're everything you always dreamed of without even knowing? Well that's how Biola felt. 

When Bayo walked into her life and a most beautiful relationship began, then two months later Bayo met her parents and then before he returned back to his US base, got Biola a passport and then started to process her Visa. They had already even started looking for schools for her over there, Bayo was quite serious about settling down with her. 

He used to visit about twice a month, and each time bring many goodies with him, not only for Biola, but for her parents and her friends. He had already taken Biola home to meet his family to, during one of his visits. However, a few months later Biola noticed his calls had started to lessen, with no explanation. Her visa had been granted and her college application was successful, she was all set to go, but Bayo had suddenly gone cold. 

A few weeks later, she runs into Bayo's friend who not only tells her that Bayo is in town but also takes her to Bayo's hotel room. When his friend knocked and Bayo opened, Biola barged in and was shocked to see her boyfriend/fiancé/husband-to-be, but even more shocked to see Busayo in his bed. 

Busayo, one of Biola's closest friends. One of the benefactors of the largesse Bayo used to bring for her friends, one of her biggest supporters and prayer warriors, the same person who helped her with her college applications and counseled her on her impending marriage in the US of A...

It was later learnt that Busayo stole Bayo's phone number from Biola's phone and started calling him; this babe you want to marry are you aware she's a serious runs babe? Are you aware that if you take her abroad she go leave you and waka? Are you aware that she's just after your money? Are you aware that she sleeps around? On and on and on... Unfortunately Biola wasn't exactly a saint before she and Bayo started dating and Busayo's incessant warnings led him to ask around and eventually dump her... Meanwhile, introduction was already underway o! Visa was ready. Tickets were about to be bought. School fees in the Americas were already being paid. 

Failure at the edge of breakthrough! Lol. 

After months of severe, and by severe I mean severe devastation, for you see, Biola who was already visualizing herself as the student of some American university had stopped attending lectures here and didn't take the exams that semester (which eventually led to an extra year), she decided that she shouldn't leave vengeance for God alone. 
      It so happens that Busayo was in a serious relationship of her own, even when she went and destroyed Biola's. Biola decided she was going to tell Busayo's boo everything that happened, from stealing Bayo's numbers, to the frequent phone calls, to finding her half naked in his bed. She did this. But. Busayo's boo did not even budge. He apologized on his girlfriend's behalf and asked Biola to leave. 

Today Busayo and that boo are married with a couple of kids. From an indications, they seem to have a good life and a happy marriage. 

Biola however is still single, and searching... And all these years later the sting still burns. 


This morning my friend, Blessing, called, all irate and indignant. How could that terrible terrible person whom she showed nothing but love and kindness to, who had her thrown out of her home, the very home she welcomed her into when the world and her own family turned their backs on her, and almost destroyed a marriage, be living a golden life with blessings on blessings on blessings. While hers remains much less than perfect?

It's too long a story to relay this morning but even I could feel her pain. The injustice seems too weighty. 

Doesn't it make you wonder the point in being a good, conscientious individual when the rain falls on the just and unjust alike...?

    I have decided to just do me. When I feel like being bad, I'm bad. When I want to be good, I'm good. In the long run, everyone gets that which is due to them according to the work of their hands.

    If you can be proud of you, no wahala. If not, Doh is your case.

  5. I don't want to start... But God works in mysterious ways to perform his wonders. Most important thing is to stay positive at all times, cos d moment u start blaming Ur future on the actions of the negative past, it only brings more negativity and anguish.

    Move one, live happy. Stay blessed and you will remain blessed. Cos to think of what u have passed through alone is suicidal and no one she ever have to pass through that. But stay positive, no matter what. Stay positive I repeat.

    And by the way I'm sure u must have finally graduated even after the extra one year, life goes on and u really don't need any one specific person to be a success. Channel Ur pains into avenues that will make u a success yourself. You can't succumb to defeat.
    Wait... I said I don't want to say much earlier *sigh

  6. Life is mysterious in many ways. My own thing is make your decisions and make sure you are happy when you make and execute them. That way when shit hits the fan you have some confort in knowing you did you.

    Biola is miserable because she wants to br, Busayo is happy because she wants to be...some things are a decision.

  7. The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

    I just try to encourage and tell myself that no matter what, this cruel world will not steal my goodness

  8. One thing always works in this kind of situation and that is FORGIVENESS, it's hard but doable, once you do this, you'd realise that life gets easier literally because you are able to focus on what's important. Trust me, I know.

    Hi Thelma, it's been a while.

    1. "FORGIVENESS". That's the key. After Biola reports to Busayo's boo his ability to forgive gives Busayo the golden life. There's nothing more to add. Kudos Lauryn.

  10. Hmmmm this is difficult to deal with. I will just leave everything to God and move on even though it won't be that easy. Thank God for his divine healing ( but why are some nurses evil when it comes to injections)

  11. A lot of times I am inclined to think this way: why do the bad people get the good things? The bad girls getting the best men? Then I recall Psalm 37, Psalm 73 and Proverbs 24........

    Proverbs 24:19-22
    19 Fret not thyself because of evil men, neither be thou envious at the wicked;
    20 For there shall be no reward to the evil man; the candle of the wicked shall be put out.
    21 My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change:
    22 For their calamity shall rise suddenly; and who knoweth the ruin of them both?

    Psalm 37:
    1 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
    2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

    We only know now (today) and think they are living the good life however, God's mill grinds slowly but SURELY. Who knows what tomorrow holds for such people? Who knows when the axe of judgement shall descend upon them?

  12. I've just got one question
    since admission and the visa were already granted and fees paid.
    Why couldn't she still go to continue her study rather than pining after a lost relationship and the betrayal of a friend.
    the way I see it God brought Bayo into her life just for a reason and a season. But it seems she was too hurt to actually see the silver lining in that cloud

    1. Tickets, accomodation, general welfare. It wasn't something her family could carry at the time.

    Thelma, I am good because I need my peace of mind. I need to be able to live with myself after anything I do. I need to be able to go to bed, happy and at rest without my conscience eating me alive. I need to be able to close my eyes and pray to God(a wonderful relationship with God).
    I am who I am, for myself nwanem.

  14. Hmmm I remember that story, but what pained me more is how she let that single incident shatter her to the extent it did, while Busayo continued her life like nothing happened. It reminds me of the saying that we look too long on a closed door that we do not notice an open window.

    Maybe if she brushed that off (because she was not totally living a saint's life) learnt her lesson and continued her life she will be in a better place now. lesson, when you fall, get up, brush the dust off and continue. Don't lie down there so long while your mates move on with their lives. J

  15. Painful as it is to read, this is how the cookie crumbles.

    The bottom line is "Trust no one".
    Reveal only as little as possible, and try to live a decent life, at the very least.

    She needs to move on, Bayo was hers for a season.
    The betrayer will some day be betrayed as well.

  16. Sometimes life builds evil doers up so when they fall, d crash will be deafening. Who said she is happy?
    Face your life, forgive them all. Pray for God to bless those who hurt u. Move on.
    It is not your prerogative to punish. Vengeance is mine says God. I will repay. Stop watching to see when it will happen.
    Get your life moving. Stop talking abt d past. Go adopt a charity or something. Heard of Slum to school? Mirabel centre? Etc. I had a friend who used to wash clothes for orphanages on weekends. A 1st class graduate. This same thing happened. The guy called off d cwedding but his mother insisted that he marry my friend. Today they have kids. No bff was involved tho, just male gossips.

  17. I know of a certain woman here in Enugu. Over 25 years ago, she stole her friend's man. The major amongst all her lies was that her friend was epileptic. The man dumped her friend and got married to her instead. They lived outside the country too. Now, fast-forward to over twenty years after. The first child of that union is epileptic. The only girl-child of the marriage has become a full time runs girl with two babies to her credit. The woman in question is devastated as the man left all of them. Certainly, "God's mill grinds slowly but SURELY". It may seem all rosy for her now, but truly #Karmarneverforgets

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.
