Super Mario


Recently someone said something that got me thinking – ‘I am like God’s Super Mario’ – not in those exact words though. Playing Super Mario was one thing and ‘being’ Mario is another so I decided that being God’s Super Mario:

Game Controller

He should be behind the controls.

When He moves me left, I go left. He makes me bend or jump, that I do. He knows exactly what action I need to take. He sees the whole screen – I just see where I’m standing. I need to let go and let Him – If I don’t let Him start the game then I’d be in ‘preview’ mode and never go past that same point.

Best for Mario

He knows whats best for me.

He knows I need to stay plugged in to a source to remain alive. He knows I need Him to move me out of harm’s way. He knows exactly when I need extra lives and extra food and ammo and all that. He knows best. He knows the perfect time to jump on that shelled ‘thingy’ so it won’t come back and hurt me. I need to be patient even when it seems like I’m not moving because HE KNOWS!!!

Big or Small

Different phases, different faces.

There are different faces for different phases in life. There is a time for everything right? A time to be happy, a time to be sad; a time to laugh and a time to cry; a time to rejoice and a time to mourn – The list is endless. Because I love my ‘Star mode’ doesn’t mean I’m supposed to live in ‘Star Mode’ all the time. Sometimes I need to be ‘Little Mario’ or maybe plain old ‘Big Mario’ so I can use my ‘gun’! Different stages, different phases, different faces!!!

Stages

Life’s in different stages.

Super Mario World 1 Stage 1 – Life, so to speak, starts here. I move from stage to stage after overcoming all the obstacles. I need to finish one level before I move ahead because I need to be prepared for the next stage. Sometimes I may need to restart a level because He doesn’t feel like I’ve done well enough to survive the next level and He does want me to survive and be victorious!

Basically, I need to leave the control to God, He’s got the pad anyway. Whether I’m Mario or Luigi or I have Yoshi or not or I’m in Super Mario Bros or Super Mario World, I know He’s got a plan for me – I’m going to get to the end and be victorious (save the princess?).  I have to be as submissive as Mario is to me (I’m a boss like that! :D). What do you have to lose trusting Him, you only know what’s in front of you anyway plus you get a free theme song included!!!

Mario

Be a Super Mario today, trust your Super God today, become a Super Natural being in this natural world by His grace! 🙂

Scared. Of?


I’ve been here before don’t get me wrong and I’ve come out of it. But recently, at least for the past few weeks I’ve been scared. Scared of what? I don’t know. All I know is I’m ‘scared’ …
Maybe of responsibility … I have been busy a lot lately. Been in and out of many things. Been trying to juggle so many aspects of my life so maybe I’m scared of responsibility.
Maybe of being a disappointment, failing people who expect much from me. I feel like I need to be near perfect at least to be an example to certain young ones looking up to me. Not living up to my full potential. I’m trying to read and understand but its hard and I try to remember but its even harder. The easiest thing to do right now is to pay attention in class though that’s hard as well. Still I don’t know what I’m scared of.
Maybe of failing … Not being where I used to be or where I want to be. Failing academically, socially, spiritually, morally even financially – not so sure about mentally or is being scared already doing that?
Maybe of success – Scaling through even when I know what little my efforts did. The way God favors me though … I’m scared that I’ll succeed and no longer give Him glory. I’m scared that I’ll succeed and just expect it, no longer appreciate it. I’m scared that I’ll succeed and it would blow my head up, I’d no longer acknowledge Him. But I want success …
Maybe of sickness. The past two weeks I’ve been falling in and out of one thing or the other. The other day, a friend screamed that I was burning and I felt nothing. I’m scared of hospital bills especially if its no big deal, I’d probably even get worse in that environment anyway. I’m scared of missing attendances, missing classes, missing tests. I’m scared of the drugs – I don’t want to live off drugs. I’m scared of being vulnerable …
Maybe of BEING A BURDEN; I feel like I might be a burden, to myself, my family, my friends, even to God sometimes. I know I can’t do nothing on my own strength but I feel like I don’t even try hard enough. My family loves me (I mean who wouldn’t ;)) but I feel I ask for too much sometimes and they’d go out of their way to make me comfortable. To myself – I dunno how – I just feel I am. See with thoughts like that in my little mind obviously I stress myself. In short, I’m a burden to me. When I ask for stuff sometimes from my friends, by the reactions of some of ’em I regret even asking in the first place or I feel I always ask a few for too much when I don’t give enough or I bug ’em too much but they are just too nice to send me away …
Which brings me to ‘Maybe of REJECTION’. I’d rather stay in my lane than have you kick me out of yours 🙂

I’m scared of a lot of things. I’m scared of me – of being me sometimes. It can be overwhelming – Sometimes I feel its too much. I don’t know why but I just am. This is not born of depression (don’t worry), just the ramblings of a scared ……. year old but I still leave myself to God after all at the end of the day I can do NOTHING.
I’m human too and I need prayers as well. 🙂

Hate is a drug that gives you the illusion that your efforts of hindering someone else is succeeding, when truly it’s just a waste of your time.

Haters

18th March 2013

The difference between a person’s possible and impossible lies in their determination.

Determination

Its hanging on when your heart has had enough, its giving more when you feel like giving up.

Mental Slavery – Do we really understand the concept? Its amazing how much we pride ourselves in being an independent generation when the media and celebrities decide what we should wear, what’s cool and what’s not, what ‘beautiful’ is and a host of others. I saw this piece and felt like you guys absolutely had to see this as well … Enjoy!

I believe this country cannot thank Kwame Nkrumah enough for his immense contribution to the liberation and the independence of this country and even the continent as a whole. Some 56 years ago, he declared this country ‘free forever!!!!!!!’ when he delivered that memorable speech on the eve of independence. Anyway, he declaring this country a free state will merely be described as a remarkable oral presentation if it is not really seen in our lives.

One of the philosophies I uphold in life strongly is that, the general condition of a country reflects the individual conditions of the citizens. Meaning the state of the nation represents  the collective states of the individual citizens of the country. If you would agree with me that there is a certain level of truth in this statement, then you might just agree too when I say this country is not necessarily…

Very few people can say they know me and one of such is the person I’m talking about today. I’ve known him for over a year now and its been a weird friendship (He’s not normal :D) Lol! I’m not going to ramble on and on about how amazing he is ‘cos he’ll say I’m washing him but he’s one person I’m glad to have in my life … He’s a forever friend!
Another person – She didn’t know me from anywhere but we bonded and I love her unconditionally! She’s like a mini mummy to me and an extraordinary personality. She’s one person who can always make me smile.
I’d rather not have posted this here but its the only place with enough space for all my characters! I’d have attached pictures but I have to ask first. 🙂
Happy birthday Bobola and Amaka! I’m glad you’re in my life and I’ll forever be grateful I’m a lil part of yours!!!
Happy International Women’s Day as well! 🙂
