#OluFoundHisFaith







Ahh.. Sunday, November 16, 2014. Truly a day that for the rest of my life I can’t & will never forget. With officially 30 days until ‘I do’, I think it’s appropriate to now share one of my most precious blessings & sing praises to my glorious Heavenly Father for the incredible things he has done. On November 16, 2014, through one of his daughters, God revealed to me who my husband would be.

The beauty of this & why I still stand in complete awe of God, is that 1. This individual knew absolutely nothing of my relationship status (I was single.. super SINGLE lol), nor did she know him. 2. His name isn’t John or Tim, it’s Oluwaseun which she spelled correctly, 3. Although I knew who he was, we were just associates, not even friends. At the time I received this prophecy, we hadn’t spoken in 3 months.

Fast forward to 3 years later, & 30 days before ‘I do’… God remained true to His promise. I now realize that God was showing me the end in the beginning. 1 Peter 1:6 rings true of our journey “So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a little while.” It was only the beginning of 2017 (after dating, the engagement, & now planning our wedding), is when I finally told Seun of the revelation. I’ve known for years that Seun would be my husband. However, he needed to first find his faith, before he found his faith, to really grasp the things of the spirit… andddd to not think I was crazy LOL! #OluFoundHisFaith is more than just a catchy slogan. It's God fulfilling His promises that He gave to us thousands of years ago on the cross through the blood of Jesus Christ. How blessed are we ❤️❤️❤️

I'm not one to gush about engagements and weddings but this touched me somewhere in my heart. In a world with so much ugliness, I'm happy to share this. I wish this kind of love and revelation for someone who needs it. I'm praying that by this time next year, at least 10 of my single blog readers who desire to be married will be. And I hope you share your love stories with us too. 💍

  2. "I now realize God was showing me the end in the beginning" this caught me, what we do most times is to "pray for" something but sometimes all we need to do is "pray about" it. We shouldn't spend all the time asking God for this and that, I'm not saying he doesn't give those things but I just feel sometimes when we're in some certain situation we should simply ask God to to just do God, we should ask for his revelation on certain things and just trust him to do what's best for us, telling him to guide us and give us strength to go through...Congratulations to the couple, are we getting an invite to the wedding? Who else loves Nigerian weddings?

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!
