Today’s piece is by my G baby, G mama, my one and only Glory!!!! She’s an amazing human being and is literally a ball of energy …. I’m pretty sure I might haave gotten on her nerves aa few times but she stills loves me. Another thing, she’s an amazing story teller so we always have fun writing stories and scripts together. Well, I’ve been known to have a tendency of talking too much so let’s just get on with Glory’s take on ‘Love is not easily angered’.

Love is not easily angered: Love never fails.

Teju was scared – Scared to the bone!!! You know that feeling you have when you know obviously that there is no escape plan. There is no excuse, no lie you can tell to defend yourself. There is actually no use of trying. This is it. This is it! It’s the Last and final time. In short no more time. Have you ever been in those shoes?!

Well Teju was in it. How could she have done it again?  After everything?! How could she have been so stupid?! Stupid is even an understatement because her eyes were opened. Fully opened! She knew what she was doing but damned the consequences. Funny part is that she knew she was being watched. Yes! She knew. But still the pleasure just for a moment clouded the treasure for the long time. She so wanted it badly. Did you get that?! She WANTed it badly yet her NEED was met!

She took hold of her want blind siding her need. And after the pleasure yet still not satisfied, what does she do next?!

You thought right!!

Oh No she didn’t, (Oh Yes she did!)

Why should she?! (Why shouldn’t she?).

She had messed up (haven’t you?! Severally?!! Don’t judge!)

Others had rejected her, even the pleasure had used her up (Can’t you relate) The best thing was to run away but she tried her need.

 

Walking towards her last option, head bowed, heart pumping hard, hands shaking.. She stood face to face.

She: (head bowed, tears flowing) I’ve messed up

Need: I know

She: I don’t know what came over me.

Need: (silence)

She: (starts ranting) I’m sorry! Truly and deeply sorry. I can’t do this any longer. I’m tired. Really tired. I’m a mess … I know you are tired of me too. I know you are angry. I know you don’t even want me…

Need: I am not angry!

And as she finally lifted her head up, she beheld the face but couldn’t understand what she was seeing. The bright face with the huge smile, shining white teeth, sparkling blue eyes with hands stretched out for a welcoming hug. She was perplexed.

 And all she could say was WHY?!

Why are you welcoming me?! Who exactly are You?!

I AM.

I AM sees beyond your pleasures and into your Heart.. Remember I am spirit and know all things.

I AM understands your situations… Remember I came as a man to walk through those paths.

So I know how it feels that’s why I don’t get angry easily.

I turn your mess into my Message,

I am your Need and not your Want…

And when you finally seek Need…

I am Found… I have always been here… Remember I will always be with YOU.

So I definitely do not fail…

Because I AM…

LOVE

 

         Love doesn’t get angry easily (1Cor 13:5)

         Love certainly doesn’t fail (1Cor 13:8)

         Just recognize your need…God is Love 

  • Glory

 

Just because love isn’t easily angered doesn’t mean we should provoke love to anger. No aspect of love is independent of the other as you might have noticed by now. Because love is patient, it is not easily angered and because it is not self-seeking, it doesn’t seek to anger as well. So I’ll leave you with Gee’s words again:

‘Just recognise your need … God is LOVE’ and

‘’Love never fails.’’

Its July! Happy new month and welcome to 2012 part 2!!!

I’ve decided to change our quickie style a little this time around … The quickie’s in the image. Have a blessed month!

Always learn from your mistakes.  ‘Mistakes are steps leading you to become a better person’Find out where you went wrong and don’t do it the next time. The key is to actually discover your mistake so you can move on from it.

Don’t beat yourself up when you make a mistake. Instead pick yourself up!’

Have a great week.

I’m not a fool!!!


Most people just say things as jokes and let them slide. Calling people names has an effect in their destiny so be careful what you say. I didn’t just wake up and think this up in a bid to scare y’all and this isn’t another one of my ‘Be Nce’ speeches. this is actually pretty serious stuff that has been happening since time in memorial.

In the bible, which is the ultimate beginning, all the names meant something;

Woman – Taken out of man

Abram – Exalted father (which was changed to)

Abraham – Father of many

Isaac – Laughter

Jacob – Deceit/Deceiver

All Jacob’s sons had significant messages in their names depending on the circumstances at that time and the way the mother felt.

Let’s take a look at Benjamin. His mother named him Ben-Oni meaning ‘son of my sorrow’. Due to Jacob’s constant fellowship with God and because we were made in his likeness, Jacob understood the power behind names and quickly changed his name to ‘Benjamin’ meaning ‘Son of my right hand’.

Israel means ‘contender with God’ and the Israelites indeed always contended with God in spite of the miracles He performed through the various prophets and the mercy He continually showed them.

Next most of us know the story of Jabez. Jabez is one of  those guys in the bible who no one really knows but he stands out. His mother named him so because ‘(She) bore him in pain’ but he prayed a little prayer now known worldwide in Christiandom as the ‘Prayer of Jabez‘.

Oh that you would bless me indeed

And enlarge my territory

That your hand will be with me

And that you would keep me from evil

It is a significant fact that he was remembered for a prayer rather than for a heroic act. The best part is that God granted his request. This ultimately means that when we ask God for something He answers no matter how insignificant the thing seems to us. his answer may be ‘Yes’, ‘No’ or ‘Not yet’ but the point is He’ll answer.

‘For I know the plans I have for you’, declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’ (NIV)

One thing that’s always on my mind is Jeremiah 29:11 (quoted above) so I’m not in the least bit worried or at least I try not to be 🙂 At the end of the day, whether it’s said in jest or not doesn’t matter; calling someone a fool just doesn’t ‘fly’ especially children because you are in a way defining their destiny. There is power in the tongue. (James 3:5)

The tongue is a small thing that can make grand speeches. But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire. (NLT)

“Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional.”
– Roger Crawford

Like I’ve said before, your reaction to situations is key to your moving forward. If you choose to let challenges overwhelm you, then failure is what you’ve chosen to receive. On the other hand, choosing to face your challenges and learn from mistakes, you’ve decided to forge ahead. This week remember this:
Challenges will come, your reaction to them – that’s where your future comes from!
– Bondess007™

True the action usually determines a reaction but break the norm. You can’t be great if you’re like everyone else.
Have a great week and happy new month!!!
