THREE SONGS I’M LOVING!

1. Your Mercy by vertical church band: I absolutely love this song, I love the lyrics and the way it takes me to a place of worship. I first heard it through a playlist my twitter friend @_Oladipo prepared for me. Since then It’s been on repeat.

2. On Fire by Victoria Orenze: This song is a ‘call’ song. Its a song of total surrender to God. Talks about giving up our lives for his works. It’s a song I pray with and I pray it blesses you.

 

3. Since your love by Brandon Hampton: Oh this is my current anthem, love it so much. Talks about God’s infinite love for us, and why we were made.

Happy sunday

GOD IS LOVE

The word of God teaches us that the fundamental essence of God’s nature is Love, but how does one really begin to describe this. The best explanation is a walk through the word. The sole purpose for creating mankind is to give us all the opportunity to become heirs with Christ, a part of the ruling God family, to become the sons and daughters of God, John 17:22-23 sums this up.

Hence from the time of creation, God being love was evident. He made man the crème of his creation, a reflection of him. He then chose us to rule and have dominion over all he had created. An utmost delegation of responsibility.

Immediately after the fall of man, God was already thinking of restoration & redemption. Not just by hand-making coverings of skin for Adam and Eve before driving them out of Eden-Genesis 3:21, But by establishing a prophecy of Jesus who will come thousands of years later to redeem us from sin and death. A plan and process that would enable salvation for man offering us sonship to become actual sons and daughters of God.

God has the jurisdiction to make us live in complete obedience to his precepts, but because he is God all by himself he gave us will. An expression of his loving nature. He dignified us with free will, a precious gift that gives us the power to make decisions and determine the outcome of our lives. Though he still gives us guidance through his word Deuteronomy 30:19, prophets and the Holy spirit -John 14:26.

God is love means God is a compassionate, merciful yet disciplined creator who wants us to have full access to all that he is.

Today as we celebrate love let’s us be thankful to the father for his unending love ūüíú.

SERVING GOD THE WORLD’S WAY? PARADOX OR FACT: LOGOS

world-changers-not-world-chasers-2Hello there!

Welcome to Logos, a segment of the blog where we discuss faith-based issues using the word of God as the standard.

Today I had an encounter that had me in deep thoughts, I spent over an hour pondering on this issue and searching my spirit on what the word of God says about it.

It’s interesting how so many Christians want to show forth the light but using the world’s methods….. Let me explain;

I find it common practice that these days brothers and sisters in the body of Christ like to ‘purify’ what isn’t expedient in the guise of giving glory to God. Read More

HOW I WASH MY HAIR: PRODUCTS AND TECHNIQUES: WASH DAY ROUTINE

dsc_1160Hello there!

Happy Saturday! Today is pamper and wash day for most people, so I thought to share my wash day routine these days with you.

Normally I have my hair in plaits for the most part of the month and wear wigs, so daily  I get to moisturize my scalp and oil my edges. While this great the down side is product build up. I wash my hair every other week or once a month depending on my schedule.

STEP 1:

I usually start my wash day process with a scalp lifter. This is just a mixture of apple cider vinegar and water ( Ratio) 1:5. So about a small cup of vinegar to 5 cups of water to dilute. dsc_1162

I put this in a tiny spray bottle, and spray my entire scalp with this. This mixture helps to lift dirt, flakes and oil build up. I leave this on for about 20 minutes and get on with other activities.

STEP 2:

When I feel the vinegar has done its job I proceed with my Sebamed anti-dandruff shampoo, I like my scalp squeaky clean so this does the job, I have done a review about this shampoo on the blog HERE.dsc_0384

For this stage of washing I use very warm water.

STEP 3:

Afterwards I go in with my black soap shampoo from shea moisture or my keratin shampoo from Spa-haus. I like the smell of these two products and their job is just to strengthen my hair and give it a nice smell. I also use warm water for this stage.DSC_0138dsc_1151

STEP 4:

After rinsing ¬†out my hair, I apply a hot oil treatment. I have quite a couple but I used this the last time I washed my hair. It’s the restore +condition ¬†hot oil pouches. ¬†You simple place them in hot water and use after a minute. I apply this warm on my hair and rinse out after 15 minutes.dsc_1125DSC_1126.JPG

STEP 5:

Once my hair is throughly rinsed out,I go in with my deep conditioner mixture. Which is a deep conditioner of choice and pure coconut oil. ¬†My favourite coconut oil brand was gifted to me by my friend from Belize. It’s so pure and the smell is distinct. I use either AS I AM hydration elation or Vitale¬†olive oil deep conditioner.dsc_1160dsc_1155DSC_1150.JPG

I apply the deep conditioner and coconut oil on my hair generously, this restores moisture in my hair and strengthens it as a Protein treatment. I cover my hair with a plastic shower cap BUY HERE  for 30minutes and rinse out with cold water.

STEP 6:

After this I just apply a regular conditioner, but I really like this spa-Haus keratin oil conditioner, it smells so good! And keeps my hair supple. That sits for another 3-5 minutes. During this step, I detangle my hair with a wide tooth comb and twist it in sections.dsc_1158

I rinse out my hair still in twists (With cold water).

STEP 7

After this is done, I pat my hair dry with a towel, and apply a leave in treatment/ conditioner. Presently I use Cantu leave-in treatment. I unravel my twists, apply the product in the same section and twist again.DSC_1146.JPG

STEP 8:

I oil my scalp with an essential oil like peppermint oil then my edges and nape with Jamaican black castor oil.dsc_1169DSC_0115

I let the hair dry naturally with all the products. I prefer to wash my hair in the evening, so by morning it’s all dry and stretched out.

STEP 9:

For styling either I return to didi plaits or a bun. img_5513I often refresh my hair with a leave in, coconut oil and water mixture from a spray bottle (Buy bottle HERE ) or I just moisturise the tips of my plaits with the Cantu coconut curling cream. See how I do put my hair in a bun HERE.dsc_1167 dsc_1164

And that’s ¬†my wash day routine! Takes me about an hour plus to complete, but I really enjoy the process. It’s my hair and I have to take care of it.

So let me know how is this different from your own techniques and which of these steps would you’d be willing to incorporate in your wash day routine.
