DAY OUT: EKENG BASSEY UNPLUGGED

Hello!

Happy New month! This weekend was quite boring thanks to the Fuel scarcity in Nigeria, Infact I couldn’t go anywhere from Friday till Sunday aftenoon, but I pray the Nation gets better with the incoming admnistration.

Before I go ahead with today’s post, I want to thank you for being patient with me during my two-week hiatus on the blog. Throughout last month I was so occupied with work, But that would change soon ^.^


 

This evening, I attended Ekeng Bassey’s album launch. Some of you may know Ekeng from EbonyLife TV where he presents on the show EL NOW. He is also an alumnus of my undergrad school. I met him last week at the NACK Store where he invited me for his event. (Oh yea! I posted a picture the day we met, see below)

So today I went with my friend Dara. The event held at Liberty House in Lekki. I got to meet lots of people and it was a soul lifting worship session, with ministrations from Nikki Laoye, Wole Emmanuel, Peter Ita and Ekeng Himself. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I also purchased his CD afterwards.

I took my Camera along so I got to take some pictures.

WORD FOR YOU: PEACE

IMG_2379Sometimes do you feel your heart skip at the thought of an issue….or do you just feel distraught when some thoughts cross your mind… I know that feeling too well. I remember about two years ago when I was dealing with some personal issues, I had so much anxiety that it started affecting my dream/sleep life. Oh how I hated those times, but thank God for today.

I often say that in life my top three desires are to 1. to fulfil purpose, 2. have good health and 3. peace of mind.

But more than often life throws us a curve ball which may affect our mood, thoughts, and even happiness, which is not God’s perfect plan. Jesus is a prince of peace(Isaiah 9:6) and above all he wants you to experience calmness and peace in all areas.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:6-7

Fear is also another subtle tool of the enemy, he wants you to live in fear so much that your fear holds you back from praying and even believing in the promises of God. It’s an expression of his deceptive nature, he wants to blind-side you on your position and privileges in christ. Remember my post on Deception .

I feel that when we have fear or are emotionally unstable it breeds room for ill thoughts and is an expression of lack of trust in God. I’ve been afraid, I’ve been paranoid, and I’ve been very fearful of what tomorrow holds, but today I thank God for the understanding of his word. Peace is a birthright of a believer. Salvation comes with freedom, joy, deliverance, dominion and Peace. God is not a God of disorder but of peace (1 Corinthians 14:33).

So how do we operate a life of peace? easy.

  • Ask God for peace: Matthew 11:28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls”-
  • Believe you have it, it’s your heritage as a believer. Psalm 85:8 ” I will listen to what God the LORD will say; he promises peace to his people, his saints– but let them not return to folly’ also see John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
  • Ask God to help you stop any habits that are ungodly and abide in him: Psalm 34:14 ‘Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it’ Also Psalms 119:165 Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble”.
  • Trust God in all your ways- “Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit”

Know that God doesn’t give us fear, he is a God of peace. So if a situation in your life gives you fear it can’t be from him….I pray that every heart reading this post may be filled with the peace and joy of God that surpasses all human reasoning in Jesus name.

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” John 14:27

Have a peace filled day, week, month, year and life ahead!

xoxo

DECEPTION

Lately I’ve been pondering on what exactly causes Christians to fall into sin…….is it lack of faith or purely an act of disobedience? Are people who are consciously aware of the repercussions of their actions that negligent? Christians, people who know the reality of heaven and hell…(or are we ignorant?), Or Is the world that […]
