The Encounter.





Last week I boarded a plane out of Lagos. While waiting to get my boarding pass I listened to an argument that was going on beside me. So this very pretty woman, early 40s maybe, was being told that she couldn't travel with one of her bags that had some breakables in it. They were pretty stern about that and the woman was adamant about getting on the plane and with all her stuff. 

I left to board my plane and after a very bumpy flight we sha landed safely. Walking towards arrivals I heard something fall and break behind me, I turned back to see it was that same woman at the airport. Her stuff had fallen because she was carrying too many things, and so I offered to help her carry some of her bags. We immediately got talking. 

Less than two minutes after meeting, I'd already learnt that she moved out of Lagos a year ago because her husband was transferred, she's been married for 15yrs with 4 kids, and she's a lawyer. When I told her I'm her learned colleague she laughed and said "no wonder, like minds attract". 

She was still travelling to her state of residence, an hour away from town so I told her to join my taxi into town and I would drop her at the park where she would get a car going her way. 

The airport is quite far from town and with the traffic, it was a long ride. We got talking. For some reason it was so easy for me to talk to her and I told her I had/have a suitor where she lives but one major reason I've refused to consider him seriously is because I just don't see myself living there, and he in turn doesnt see himself ever not living there. 

It was then she told me that she's a pastor and has her own ministry, and the things she had at the airport were gifts from her 'flock'. She said she has a church in Lagos and has to go to Lagos twice a month to join her congregation, do ministrations and counseling. Yes, counseling, as in in the seeing visions sense. She said she has prophetic powers, was born with them and had been born again since she was 12 and has run her ministry for eight years. Then she started to talk. 

She said I needed to pray about certain things, especially my career and that she can sense that I'm really good at planning and organizing (funny, I actually am), she said she sees me being very successful at a particular business, that it might take some time, but that I will eventually make it. (Funnier because my boo has been telling me the same thing for over a year). 

Then she began to talk about this suitor. She said even though she can sense that I'm in love with someone else right now, I should come home with her and stay a couple of days. She said, rightly, that the suitor in question has been on my case long before I met the guy I'm presently seeing and that it seems he really loves me so I should give both options a chance. She said I should tell him I'm in town and ask him to come over. She would like to see him for herself and know what kind of spirit he has. She would like to know what he's spiritual life is like. She would like to see him and me together and see (spiritually) if we are meant to be husband and wife. 

I told her I couldn't come home with her but I could come into town at another time. She smiled and said "You still want to play. You still want to have fun. Ok, go and have fun. You came into town to groove, i know, I won't stop you. Have all the fun but come back and lets talk when you've finished. I'm hearing so many things about you in my spirit". 

And then she started to tell me things about my past, and they were actually true. And she started to tell me things about my future and then she stopped short, laughed and said "Oya I don't want to say too much so that you won't run away from me". I laughed too but I didn't urge her on. She added again that she's seeing many things and there's so much she needs to talk to me about. She was rather very excited and was visibly struggling to restrain herself from saying the things she wanted to. 

When I dropped her off she told me to try to come to her town and I'm welcome to stay in her house as long as I want. She said to chat her up on whatsapp so that we can talk more and continue our conversation. 


It's been five days and I've neither called nor messaged her, and I don't think I will. 

I don't know why but I think I like my life the way it is and I see these prophecies as some kind of interference. I want things to happen naturally and I want to be surprised! 

I met the lady, we instantly hit it up and liked each other and she's welcoming me, a stranger, to stay with her family. She said she senses that I have a good spirit so she's not worried, and would gladly prepare a room for me in her home for the weekend. It was a heartwarming thought but not one I'm willing to entertain. 

Yet, a part of me is wondering. Did we meet for a reason? Should I go and see her? What am I afraid of? 

In my shoes, would you go and see her, or call her at least... Would you be curious, would you want to know?

  2. In your shoes....I would go. For curiosity sake.
    These type of people (the seers) exist. But a part of me wants to trust them while another part doesn't. It's usually scary especially when what they say is true but then I also know some prophets aren't true prophets.

    I'm just here blabbing. What do I know?

  3. I don't listen to talk about prophetic stuffs, not interested in telling about the future as I am very glad walking through the minefield of life. It is called adventure, I get burnt in the journey but my days of laughter are more than that of tears. I wake up every morning with a heart of gratitude, trusting God to order my steps and help me get up when I fall.
    Any extra is pure distraction, the kind I pray to God to shield me from.

    Happy Sunday folks, have a beautiful week ahead.

  4. I'd definitely call/text her. can't guarantee I would take it any further.

  5. If what you want is not in line with what you think she has to offer, in any regard, then let it go.

    The fact you are writing this means you want to be convinced not to... Seeing as something is telling you to go.

    On the flip side, all these prophets and prophetess everywhere, you don't want to be wrap up in a surreal world they'd create for your innocent soul. Before you know, you are stuck and unprepared for an uncertain reality ahead.

    Make a decision about yourself and know what you want, stand firm and it will happen as you want it. Prophet(ess) or not.

  11. I shall not go but i shall 'sha call or at least text. Nthing more.

  12. My dear, go. Ur paths crossed for a reason. These days people dont "walk blindly". U need to be prayerful and seek councelling. At the end of the day, she will advice u. And ask you to pray. But if she mentions money, run! And oh be careful so it doesnt get addictive.

  13. Will i go to her house and stay, No! But my curiosity will not allow me not call or at least text her to hear small more.lol. I absolutely believe that there are things that can't always be explained logically but i'll definitely ask God for the spirit of discernment too.

    3. Yes - the discernment. I read this yesterday, and walked to the kitchen, confused at what I'd do in a situation like that. And then I realised that the Holy Spirit's discernment would guide me on by whose spirit she operates. If it is the Spirit of God, then there is no fear.

  14. If I were u, I'd have pestered her to tell me all she wants to there and then, but I won't go to her house not to think of sleeping over.. but do as ur spirit leads. These days there are too many false prophets operating by d lead of the devil, so u need to be very careful dear!

  17. When we talk about 'DISCERNMENT', do you really believe that we all have the same ability to 'hear' from God? What if some people can see/hear/perceive more than others can? What if this 'gift' of thiers is tapped into? It would be really nice to skip the pitfalls of life most of the time. We may all have the discerning spirit but I'm very certain some people are higher up the spiritual food chain.

  18. I won't go, neither will i call anymore sef. I'm a christian and in as much as i believe in the gift of prophecies and prophets, i also know the devil can manipulate things to suit him. So I'd sit in my lane and pray about my future. God will never take you to where his grace isn't sufficient. The one she has told you is enough, just pray about the rest.

  19. It's tempting to be curious about such things. Yes indeed there are seers . After all in the bible God spoke through prophets.
    The problem our generation has now is discerning who is real and who isn't.

    I have had strangersome I never knew before tell me certain things. I didn't go seeking, our paths just crossed.

    I was amazed but didn't have the need to follow up lest I fall into a trap.

    There was one stupid one who said I won't be able to conceive. God put him to shame , but those words hunted me for along time and kept me from any how Waka.

    I honestly try to avoid such, just as Wales opined above.

    I'd only say keep in touch but don't go the extra trying to seek for anything further. Just keep her as a friend.

  20. I actually would go see her. Though I might not sleep over. I think u met her for a reason.

  22. I am always sceptical about prophets and vision seeing pple. God speaks to everyone, many of us are just too busy to listen. Whatever it is she has told you, God must have had a reason, he also had a reason for stopping her from saying more. I'd say take the things that she has said to God in prayer, tell him that if they are truly in line with his plan for your life then he should bring them to fruition in his own time. Pray about your future and trust God to handle it.

    There's no need to call the lady, I wouldn't. Not because I'm sure she's shady but because you really can't be too sure so I'd rather take my chances with God.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Since she did not mention that you have a blog, I think you should not go! True.

    ReplyDelete
  24. "Everybody wants to know their future, until they know their future" does not always apply.

    Go. I will only counsel caution. In this life, nothing happens in isolation.

    All the best.

    ReplyDelete
  25. The primary reason why I wouldn't go see her is Shakespeare's story of MacBeth. Basically she could be true but her vision could cause me to derail.

    Also I don't like things clouding my head space too much, a reason why I don't keep somethings on my head, why I make lists a lot let alone being told about me in years to come! Too much mehn!

    I know some seers are not by God and I'm not sure how to always differentiate, so I'll pass.

    Thelma, about your not dreaming of relocating to a state, lol. If I told you a story, you might not believe.

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.

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.
