Hello World!

I have been MIA on here for a while now. Please forgive me... that's if there's anyone one that still reads this blog.
This month I turned 25! Yay! Honestly, God has been faithful to me. His goodness to me has been matchless. I am expecting a newness in my life like never before. A renewal in my walk with the Lord, a renewal in my relationships, in my family, in my professional growth. I just want to change gears and take it to a new level. I am trusting in the One who has brought me this far to take me the rest of the journey. So if you read this, please thank God on my behalf! I hope to be back to this space shortly with updates.

Last Post of 2011

Hello all!!!!

I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas and that the true meaning of Christmas was celebrated in your lives. As I reflect on 2011 and look to 2012 as it dawns, I want to leave you with this thought: God has not given up on you, and that is why He has preserved you. If He has not given up on you, then you shouldn't give up on yourself. As this year comes to a close, don't think of all the things that you couldn't do, or that didn't go the way you envisioned. As I heard in a sermon lately, don't bring yourself under condemnation or guilt but continue to fix your gaze upon Jesus. The Bible says that when we look upon Him, our faces are not ashamed. There is no disappointment in God. It may not have happened today don't be discouraged, know that it has been re-appointed for His time.
So with this in mind, I wish you all a happy New Year! May the Lord do a new thing in your lives.

What shall I Say?

Hello World!

It's been a minute since I was here. I apologize profusely and promise to try to be better. Interestingly, I haven't been away from Blogville, just away from my own blog. In the time I've been away, I just haven't had the drive or desire to come on here and write. Why, you may ask. I think it has to do with the fact that I had somehow defined this blog as Inspirational and outlet for my creative writing blog and inspiration eluded me these past couple months, so I had nothign to write. However, today I am coming on here to really just pour my heart out. I'm not quite sure there is a particular direcrion this post is going in, so please bear with me. I may just end up re-capping some events in my life.

Just recently, it was Thanksgiving and I had a lot to be thankful for. God has been so good to me and my family. When I lost my job, He surprised me and gave me one even better. He protected us to this point and continues to show us His new mercies everyday. God is good. I thank God for His faithfulness.

Now we are going into another holiday of the season, and for some reason, this holiday has stress associated with it. This ought not be so. Christmas is about celebrating the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, but when we observe how it is celebrated today, it really is not a celebration but a burden. The retail stores beckon on you to come buy their products at so called discount rates, people keep asking you, "what are you getting me for Christmas," and the list goes on. Aside from the strains on your pocket book, there are those thoughts of regret or disappointment that creep in. "Oh I wanted to have achieved this and that by the end of the year but I have nothign to show..." So instead of us being grateful anf joyfull that Jesus the Messiah was born and we can now say "Emmanuel" we are pre-occupied with what we want, what we don't have, and all the regrets of the year. I truly pray that this Christmas will be different for everyone. That we will find the peace and joy that He brings us this season and always. That we enjoy His presence even in the very mundane.

So I leave you with this to offset your Christmas season:

In Him.

Holy are you Lord et al...

Hello peoples,

I've been away for a while, I'm back now. I've been reading a lot of blogs but not writing anything on mine. So today I purposed in my heart that I will write even if my post does not have a flow to it.
First, I would like to share this new song by Hillsong that I love. It's called Beautiful Exchange, and my favorite part goes:
Holy are you Lord,
Holy is Your name,
With everything I've got,
My heart will sing how I love you.

So, I've been through some ups and downs regarding my courtship with Mr. But I thank God that He's brought us through it, and we're stronger for it. I'm just learning to be still and know that He is God. I'm learning to take all my issues to Him in prayer and trust that He will work things out even better than I can ever arrange for myself. He's just good like that. So I roll all my cares over to Him for He cares for me. I will not lie though it is not an easy task to just be still. We're doers, always trying to figure out what to do to fix a situation, it doesn't come to us instictively to just let go and trust God. Oh but I'm learning to do that. To not say too much, to not worry too much, to not react at all. He is faithful.

So my dear friends, till I return again, have a blessed week ahead and be still and know that He is God.

All in God's Timing (Part 8)

So sorry y'all, I have been really bad with keeping up with this series and this blog in general. :( Ok now back to the story.
It's Tuesday morning and Labake is awake at 5AM. Initially she woke up to use the bathroom but as she went back to bed to resume sleep for another hour, sleep had eluded her. In the span of five minutes her mind was inundated with what had to be done for the day and little details that she really could have waited till after breakfast to figure out. Still musing about her to-do and wish list, she chided her overactive mind for depriving her of another hour of precious sleep.

"Okay, meeting with Kevin at 10AM, I need to get all the documents and information for that ready by 9:30, After lunch I have a 1:30, what's that meeting about anyway? Am I taking lunch to work today? Hmm maybe I should just get something out. But what? What am I going to get for lunch? It would really be nice to go to McCormick and Schmick but it's too formal and expensive for just lunch. Maybe for dinner... Oh my goodness! Don't I have a date with Osa tonight?! Why does this date keep surprising me? I've known about it for a while... Toke said she was going to stop by to help with my outfit right? Speaking of outfits, I need to get out of bed and figure out what I'm wearing to work today!"

With that, Labake rolled out of bed and prepared herself for work. As usual the shower was a brutal wake up call; works better than her alarm clock. When she got downstairs, she spotted her mother in the living room with her Bible open. She paused in the hallway debating whether she should disrupt her morning devotion or just call her when she was on her way to work. She opted for the disruption, she might have some nuggets of grace to share withe her before she starts her day.

"Good morning mom!"

"Ah oko mi good morning. How was your night?"

"It was good. Thank God. How was yours?"

"It was good. Are you off to work?"

"Yes mom, I just wanted to greet you and disrupt your devotion" Labake said with a grin.

Her mother laughed. "As always my dear. Eh I was reading my Every Day with Jesus, and today's topic was on guarding your heart, especially in the area of relationships. As I'm not looking into any new romantic relationship, I felt maybe I should pass it on to you. My dear, be careful how you let any man into your heart o, I know I pester you about getting a man and getting married, but it is better to be single and have peace than to be with a man that will destroy your heart."

Labake's heart almost stopped. Did her mother know about her date with Osa? Was she eavesdropping? She quickly calmed her nerves and responded, "mom I hear you, that's some solid advice though. I have to run. Don't bother making dinner for me tonight, I will be going out to eat." With that Labake got up and made towards the front door.

"With who? By yourself?" but before she could finish Labake was in her car.

All the way to work, and throughout her entire day the words of that scripture played over and over in her mind. "Guard your heart with all diligence for out of it flow the issues of life." For some strange reason, she couldn't shake the words out of here mind.

She got home later than she had anticipated that evening so she had to run into the shower the moment she was in her bedroom. As she was getting out of the shower, she heard Toke greeting her mom and exchanging pleasantries with her. Good. She didn't have all the time in the world to wait for Toke. She can get the basics together and Toke will just put the finishing touches to everything.

"Ah ore, you're almost ready. How are you darling?" Toke said as she walked into Labake's bedroom.

"Toke thank God you're here on time, I got home late so please let's hurry. Does this necklace go?"

That was all Toke needed to hear to begin working her magic on Labake.

When they were done, they hurried downstairs and Labake hoped that her mother wouldn't see her leave so she won't have to explain why she was so dressed up. Thankfully for her, her mother was not in the vicinity. She opened the front door for herself and Toke and they got into their separate cars. Toke was on her way home and she was on her way to a date. A DATE! How long had she been on one? Did she even know how those go anymore? She really needed to get into the romantic mood. So all the way driving to the restaurant she played romantic songs and tried to calm her nerves.

Upon arriving at the restaurant, a valet was at her door to park her car. She was ushered into the waiting area of the restaurant, where the Maitre d' welcomed her and asked if she was meeting someone. She replied that she was meeting Osa, and quickly he took her to his private dining area. She was taken away by it all.

"Hi. Hello." She said as she approached him, sticking out her hand.

"Oh wow. You look amazing. Nice to finally meet you." With that he took her hand and pulled out her chair.

After they were both seated, Osa had to take her in. She was beautiful beyond what he had anticipated. Those pictures didn't do her any justice at all.

"So how was your day?" He said, jolting her out of the nervous wreck she was becoming, made evident by the way she was fiddling with her napkin.

"It was nice, very busy but so far so good." She replied regaining her composure and the conversation the rest of the night was easy. He was charming and definitely a gentleman. She was a natural beauty and he was beginning to catch a glimpse to the inner beauty as well.

When they had finished eating, they danced to a live jazz band till she hinted it was time for her to go. He walked her out to wait for her car to be brought to her; all the while holding her hand. When the valet pulled up in her car, she turned to him and thanked him for a lovely evening, he thanked her as well and expressed a desire to see her again soon. She leaned in to hug him and say goodnight, and he pecked her on her cheek. A rush of butterflies were released in her belly as she walked to her car and drove off, playing the night over in her mind. By this time she had forgotten all about, "guard your heart with all diligence for out of it flow the issues of life."
