Such Love … Lovestruck!!!


I keep saying I’m falling in love with Love
There’s no other way to explain it
I’m blinded by love yet I see clearly
He literally loves me to death so how can I help it?
He chose to come get me so I could be with Him forever
He came all the way so I could be accepted as His bride
I still don’t think I deserve Him sometimes
But He keeps telling me that His love is enough for both of us

How can I help but love such Love?
How can I keep myself from falling in love with Him?
I am drowning in His love and I love it
I can’t explain this feeling but I want it.
You know lately I’ve been learning about wants and needs
So I know I need His love but I want it too.
That’s just amazing, such amazing love.
I can’t describe it – He loves me because I’m me

He loves me because I talk too much
He says its just enough to talk about Him

He loves me because I’m always about
He says it enables me to show His kind of love to others.

He loves me because I like my privacy –
He says He can always catch me listening for Him.

He loves me just because.
Not because I love Him because He loved me long befoore I knew He was
But just because.

He loved me to death!
Now He’s alive and I want you to love Him too
Why?
Because He loves you just the same.

All I want for Christmas 4


Its a new day everyone! And its 3 days to New Year 🙂 Ganaijachic’s now on facebook and its easier to communicate with other followers! Please visit facebook and like the page. Let’s see how many likes we can get in two point something days. Click here to go directly to the page.

Today’s writer was my friend before before (He’d kill me if he saw this :p). We started talking mainly because he’s a reader and he’s the one that initiated me into the British Literature readers!!! I chose him to talk about peace for various reasons but basically because he’s one person that has connected with his inner man. No matter what, he has peace even when he’s not sure what happens next. Before I go on and on, I want to introduce you to a very good friend of mine and an amazing artist Odudu Abasi-Essien,
P.S. You might want to get a dictionary just in case 🙂

Peace that surpasses all understanding. Peace is usually seen as a state of quiet and calm, a realm of sweet tranquility void of unwelcome chaos. That in a sense is true, the only issue with such a definition is the variable factor of environmental change. With it, peace depends on the situation and environment one is positioned. To simplify it, one would say such peace is the absence of war. But on a more realistic, if we were to accept this definition in a world falling apart, we would hardly ever experience it. However we have an infinite reserve of peace we can call on whenever we need it. Jesus said, ‘My peace I give unto you’. Here, we see that peace can be carried with you and its not something controlled by environment.

Jesus is also seen as the Prince of Salem (peace). This means that He is the custodian and governor of peace and He has made it available to you. Peace is carried inside you. Why? Because you have God Almighty inside you, inside your spirit.

Peace is also a fruit of the Holy Spirit. One of the fruit that forms the image or character of Christ. We see how Jesus, in the storm battered boat, slept like a child while His disciples almost tore off their beards. Jesus woke and said sternly, ‘Peace be still’. We can see the power Christ has over peace enough to command it to manifest in a geographical location. This power has been given to us as the power to become sons of God. Sons imitate their fathers. We imitate God.

Therefore peace is the mobile quality of calm, tranquility, assurance and trust in God’s love and ability to deliver. It takes the weights off you and gives you rest.

———————————————————————————————————————-

I sign out with the peace sign 😀 Basically people. peace is a benefit from a decision not a feeling or mood. Make that decision to let Christ live in you and rule your world and you’ve made the decision to allow peace abide.
Bye bye for now 🙂

Food for thought …


We often treat God like He’s a lawyer! We go to Him only when we are in trouble. That accounts for why we don’t get answers since God does not work that way!! He rewards diligence! Those who love Him ‘in spite of’ not ‘because of’. Let’s redefine the terms of our relationship with God. It matters a lot to HIM…

Grace is needed:
• To overlook the shortcomings of others
• To love like Christ
• To bear the reproach of Christ
• To study God’s word diligently
• To continue to offer the sacrifice of praise
• To not speak the language of slaves
• To obey and submit to authority
• To be witnesses to Christ’s resurrection.

End time … Be prepared!!!


It has indeed been a very sad weekend indeed for Nigerians. The month of June ushered in a massive number of deaths. Over 200 people have lost their lives in reported accidents and its just the fourth day of the month. I know most of us are devastated about the number of lives being lost and the fact that it could have been prevented but what breaks my heart most is that people are shouting ‘foul play’ because others are and not because they understand the gravity of the situation or the stories of individuals on that plane but because its another reason for us to blame Jonathan. But was Jonathan the pilot of the plane? Is he the head of management of Dana Air? Was it his approval that put that plane in the air? Is he the aviation minister? Granted, most people are at logger heads with him at the moment and question his decision making abilities and ultimately, some of the blame should be put on him because he is the president after all but blaming GEJ wont change anything.

Image

Nigerians sadly don’t even know how to react in emergency situations. Its just pathetic. I don’t believe its a Nigerian thing though. I believe that in this age of social networking, it won’t be long before someone tweets ‘I’ve just been shot and I’m dying’ the second before his death. Many people were taking pictures of the crash scene and doing nothing but hindering rescue teams from coming in.

Image

Imagine Miss Jane, tired after three consecutive flights and finally looking forward to seeing her little 5 year old in Lagos. Its her first day on the job so she’s relieved that she’s finally going home after a long day. Mid flight the first engine packs up but she tries to reassure all the passengers on board that everything is fine while she’s panicking inside. Over Lagos, she heaves a sigh of relief that they are almost there and then gets the passengers ready for landing. The plane crash lands and they start shouting ‘Help! but no one does anything until about 20 minutes after. She doesn’t even know they attempted because she is burnt beyond recognition as we speak and that 5 year old is still waiting for mummy to come home.

That was a fictitious story (except the ‘Help’ part though timing may not be accurate) but there is a story behind every life lost on that plane. These ladies had no idea that they were going to die before the day ran out.

Image

Take one year old Christopher with his mum as well – Thats the end of his short life. Or look at these little kids. Its their first time in Nigeria. They are excited and they keep asking ‘Mummy when’s the plane gonna land? When are we gonna see uncle?’ but they never landed. A whole family gone that way, a father, mother and their three little angels with grandma as well. Apparently they were excited about ‘uncle’s’ wedding this weekend but alas, they didn’t even see today. Sad story!

Image

Its heart wrenching when you look at the manifest. There were many families on board that flight. Some people have started screaming ‘I will never fly with a Nigerian airline again!!!’. But what about those that were having a quiet Sunday, on the first floor of that two story building? There are children who’ve lost their parents from that building that do not understand the gravity of the situation. Its not about not taking Nigerian airlines again, its all about the grace of God. Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying God’s grace was not with the people on the flight. I’m just saying that being alive today is not necessarily about the precautions that we take daily. You are not the reason you’re still alive.

Take for example those that celebrated the fact that they were alive and well and not on the ill-fated flight yesterday, going about the business of the day only to get unto third mainland bridge and have the uncompleted billboard collapse.

Image

Nigerians do not like hearing the truth though. Had someone made noise about the condition of the plane, we’d have probably shut him up insulting him and saying he was overreacting after all he wasn’t the only one on the plane. But now, people are saying why didn’t they come out earlier … The truth is human beings can never be satisfied.

All these accidents around have set my heart on one particular question: ‘If you were gone this minute, are you sure of your destination?’ Make peace with God now. Live a life of holiness – not sometimes but ALL the time. Do it now because the next minute may be too late. We know Jesus is coming very soon – See the signs of the end times but we don’t know when exactly He’s coming so be prepared. If something happens before He happens to come, you have to be prepared so I’m begging you all earnestly, be your brother’s keeper. If your brother is going astray, pull him back – Watch yourself as well! God would hold you responsible for those around you so do your best and leave the rest to God.

We need to watch and pray AND act!

God bless us all,

God bless Nigeria.

Love, Moi!

Love (even your enemies)!!!


I know I’ve talked about love and relationships quite a bit but this is different. This talks about unconditional love with SOLID scriptural backing – that is one of the many reasons I admire our next writer Godswork! Apart from that I like the fact that he tries his possible best to please God – wait for this – not when its convenient but ALL the time. Besides he’s an amazing writer … There’s a link to some more of his work at the end. Plus I absolutely ADORE his accent!!! 😀 Lol … Okay read!!!

————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Don’t fight your enemies with hate and resentment, indifference and revenge; rather let your act of love and care for them, do the work for you.
It is now not a suprise why Jesus said ”Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you”, for now we know that by doing good to those who least deserve it, you heap coals of fire on their head. Suprised by your generosity, they will be ashamed of what they have done to you.
Truly speaking, it is annoying, painful, and hurting when you have people like that around you, that it seems reciprocal to hate back.But this is what the Lord says “vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord”.
Take some time to think about how the world will be when we all behave in one way-hating ourselves. Let’s learn to play our role, and leave God to finish the business. For this reason we should not  let evil get the best of us, but conquer evil by doing good. This might seem unrealistic, considering the fact that some people just like offending, and seemingly derive pleasure in coining evil from their heart. Clearly speaking on this, God said “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked”. so it appears that everyone is suited to work out or do evil and wickedness. But we who are in christ have received a new heart, as it is written,“And I will give you a new heart with new and right desires, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony heart of sin and give you a new, obedient heart.  And I will put my Spirit in you so you will obey my laws and do whatever I command”. For those who become Christians become new
persons. They are not the same anymore, for the old life is gone. A new life has begun. We don’t behave like the world,or copy its standards, but we are transformed daily to behave like God (by constantly renewing our mind with His word), who loves us no matter what,showing his unbeatable love by sending His only begotten son to die for us. Even when we reject him, He does not reject us, but still shower his love on us. God wants us to Love just like He would. He does this to show us an example, that when we love like Him, we live like Him.
When we love those who wrong us, we are  acting as true children of our Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and on the unjust, too. If you love only those who love you, what good is that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. If you are kind only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else? Even pagans do that. But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect .
Always know that God will not tell you to do what He has not done before, and that if He tells you to do anything He has already provided you with the power you need to fulfil that task.
Every action we take has a motive behind it, this motive shows the genuinety of your action.In line with this, we should love those that least deserve it, because God loved us and still loves us even though we least deserve it.
Truly speaking,God is the perfect definition of love, for God is love.
I admonish you to love, now not your enemies alone, but all that demands your love, especially loving the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. And moreso you should love your neighbour as you would yourself.In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him.
