Be Thankful

My mates are getting married.
My mates are getting good jobs.
My mates are succeeding.
My mates are living overseas.
My mates are buying cars.
My mates are building houses.
My mates are this……my mates are that……

It is a pity you literally forgot about your mates in the mortuary, your mates in the psychiatric homes, your mates that are roaming the streets, your mates that are jobless, hungry, blind, deaf……….

Be thankful.

Only 46 days is left and we would be saying bye bye to 2013. Some slept yesterday and didn’t wake up today. We’re sinners but GOD has been showing us mercy. God still has plans for you and I before the year ends. Some people are in jail without committing any crime, but you are reading my post via a computer or smartphone. That means your senses are intact. You ate last night but some didn’t or couldn’t. You and I are not alive because we are faithful or because we have never sinned before, but it is the MERCY and GRACE of God that has kept us alive.

INDEED GOD LOVES YOU.

Be thankful…..

An Open Letter To God Almighty….

Image of GraceIf my daughter could write a letter, this is what she would have written…..

My heavenly father,

I cannot think of a more appropriate way to start my letter to you than to say that you are exactly what my daddy said about you – that you are an AWESOMELY MAGNANIMOUS AND POWERFUL GOD !!!

This has played out in my life for the past eleven months that I have been in this world. It’s been eleven months of your amazing grace. My daddy told me that he gave me the name Grace to constantly remind you of how grateful he was to you.

However, last Monday morning, my family was thrown into sadness when I suddenly took ill. My temperature rose so high that the nurse said it was capable of leading to a convulsion. I coughed in a way I have never had before. I could not sleep all through the night. My mum and dad stayed awake too. I did not have the strength to eat, play, scatter the house..Oh sorry…re-arrange the house 🙂 ….or yell out any body’s name as I used to. I could not dance to every music I heard as I used to. I could not even smile as I used to. It was too much for an eleven month old baby. My parents were told I had infection and malaria.

While all these lasted my daddy prayed for me continuously. According to him, doctors and nurses take care of people, while you do the healing. He said many babies of my age and older people have died in the best hospitals across the world, over very minor circumstances. He kept whispering into my ears “GOD WILL SEE YOU THROUGH.” He said this all the time.

King of Kings and Lords of Lords, my daddy was right !!!! I am perfectly healed today. In fact, I started gaining back my normal self yesterday. I am back to ‘’business.”  🙂 Now I can do all the things I am known for. I was so strong to drag my mum off the seat yesterday 🙂

One thing I have learnt from this experience is that, some times in life, things can go wrong. When they do, I will always pray to you and say to myself “GOD WILL SEE ME THROUGH.” And I know you will, because my dad said you are the same, yesterday, today and forever 🙂

Dear father, thanks a lot for healing me. Thanks a lot for sparing my life. Thanks a lot for all you have done for me and my family. I know you will surely give me a blissful first birthday next month 🙂 Thank you so much in advance Dear Lord 🙂 Indeed you are an AWESOMELY MAGNANIMOUS GOD AND POWERFUL GOD!!!

I will forever seek and stick to you 🙂

Your Princess,

Grace 🙂

The awesome and privileged gift of a new day

Have You Thanked God Today?

Have you thanked God today? If you have not, it is not too late to do so NOW? If you have, how many times do you think is too much to thank Him in a day?

God is awesomely magnanimous and deserves to be praised all the time. We should not wait until He does something for us before we extend our gratitude to Him. Aside from material things, the air that we breathe in is available to us in every second of each day. Guess what? Man would have required us to be thanking Him every second of each day. And when we offend him, he simple stops the air from flowing our way. You know what follows. But our God is awesomely patient and merciful.

Sadly, a lot of people do not think they owe God this appreciation. Well, different strokes for different folks. But if you ask me, I’d say it is very good and necessary to praise the Lord always.

Do you know that praises is also a form of prayer with powerful and far-reaching capabilities? Joshua 6:16,20 says : “And it came to pass at the seventh time, when the priests blew with the trumpets, Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the Lord hath given you the city….So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat…”

A simple THANK YOU LORD FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE FOR ME goes a very long way.

So, thank God always. Not because you want more from Him, but because He has done a lot for you and your family already….especially the precious GIFT OF LIFE.

For me and my family, “I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.” (Psa 34:1)

Thank you Jesus !!!

Thanks for your time 🙂
