Take A Selfie When You Are Sad!!!

image

I know it sounds funny “take a selfie when you are sad” really why do people take selfies… But the way we folks make selfie sound like its better than other types of pictures…

Recently I felt so bad because of someone’s reaction, and I sat all morning, pacing here and there like some traffic warder looking for who to just waylay, trust me my mind was the most over populated at that hour… Lots of thoughts running through my analytical mind… And then I sat just wondering, pondering…I prayed this morning I worshipped infact I read the bible I thought the spiritual controls the physical, oh yes it does but sometimes we feed our physical to be so stronger than our spiritual… Oh my God, I’ve spoilt this baby physical… Then I sat still like a fixed mirror reflecting then I heard “take a selfie when you are sad” *looks round* hahaha should I roll on the floor or what who does that I mean who said that I stared at my phone and started typing this, wondering why a sad face can produce a beautiful countenance in a selfie….

So I took the selfie…

And I took about two and the rest I was staring at selfie camera trying to give a beautiful look, then I smiled which is my trademark of cos . lol. I noticed something on my tooth oh my God it wasn’t as white as before now I will have to go through the stress of Photoshop… Lol…but what’s the point I just didn’t….hmmm just then I realized how most often than not, we do not appraise ourselves(take a selfie) when we are hurt… We rather take a portrait of the other and design it to be beautifully painful…we  loose energy, focus and sight, wow that’s a lot of “money” to loose… It’s like taking a picture of the hurt and using Photoshop all day just to make it attractive to all that hears… Loosing sight of ourselves cos for you to take a good picture of something or someone the focus has to be concentrated on that subject…
This is what I brought out, why not try it the other way round when you are hurt take a selfie, I mean be a bit selfish, whatever or whoever caused it abandon it deliberately like we poo in the loo… And focus on how a strong beauty can emanate from inside you really…
I’m not saying don’t address the issue, oh yes address the issue not necessarily the person or thing cos addressing the subject (person or thing) doesn’t mean it’s solved, addressing the issue from inside most times is the answer… It changes your action and reaction… Ok so picture this, i hit my toes against a chair (whew quite painful) do I start screaming at the chair (which I sarcastically do sometimes…. Lol)… No but this is how we address some of our issues and we wonder why doesn’t it get  solved…
So I have started taking deliberate steps to care for my teeth generally, see…. if I didn’t take that selfie how would I have seen it… So look for how every situation will make you beautiful… selfish selfie at times like that ain’t bad…

I know people including yourself will want to make you feel hurt yeah I know right but this is it, don’t let them appear in this particular selfie… Make sure all you do when your sad or hurt is what will make the devil sad and hurt…
There’s a saying “don’t make decisions when you are mad” mine is make a decision when you are sad, a decision to be happy… Really cos that’s what God wants for you…

LEFTOVERS…

image

Yaay! It’s weekend, phew what a long week, now I have time for God… Yeah we don’t have to say it but yeah our reactions helps… Im not innocent either…lol…but let me hit the nail on the head we sometimes love the world too much and the empty applause it gives us, so we give our leftover affections back to God.

You know how we go through some experiences, pains, heartbreaks and unpalatable stuff, and after it all, we exclaim “oh God” with tears and hurt like He was involved in the first place “left overs”…
There’s something about leftovers, the nutrients have been sucked out, you see I wonder how God feels when we do that, i mean when we have to give Him our leftover affections, well but He’s God yeah…but come to think of it, even we as humans usually give leftovers to our dogs we refuse to eat it seeing it as inferior…
Sometimes after the whole ” busy week ” we go for general service in church lift up holy hands and worship which is totally cool, but uncool when its a leftover, its a leftover when we actually never worshipped or thanked Him enough in private, its leftover when we catch ourselves rushing to pray God off cos you have some important appointment ‘He gave you’…*smile

image

See I want to wake up every morning and give Him the major part of the strength of the day by just talking with Him, I don’t want to come home with tired bones and emotions, with a broken relationship between my flesh and my spirit and sound like a broken record and just say hi to Him and bang the door to my dream world…

“Here’s what happens when you actually sit down to get to know a person better from time to time you actually meet them. You figure out if they’re real. The veil drops. You learn about them. If you are smart, you ask questions. You can approach God with the same mindset of a journalist He’d rather you dig for the details than take his sound bites and run.”
My conclusion is leftovers are usually for dogs and God takes you and i more seriously than that, so I ain’t ready to give Him fried rice without chicken *winks… & I aint ready to give Him anything that doesn’t have life!
You know what, even if you warm the leftovers its not always like the initial. Always give God your initial emotions, your initial strength as you wake, your initial everything same goes with tithe *winks… You know how our initials (name) can introduce or describe us, yeah same applies to who we give our initials to it defines the next and it defines us…
Ok Akela, you and this God, yeah I know right but I’m sorry there is God… Hehe…and He’s really bigger than us! And his word is full of marvelous pages of punch me in the face with your goodness… #selah

I NEED TRANSPORT FARE PLEASE…

3d global cargo transport concept isolated on white

And she said “…I told her I needed transport fare, well all I know is that she brought me here, Akela are you even listening to me”… I wasn’t even listening with what she was saying anymore, some other words in my thoughts transported me somewhere else and I had to snap out of it! Little did she know that the words coming out of her mouth, were already controlling my unseen ‘thoughts’. Wow this is what I learnt, that everything, I mean everything we say transports someone and you somewhere… but where? *SELAH*

I thought of how mothers talk to us as children even when weaning, whether we understand or not we conform with time, then we go to school, listen to different teachers and even course mates and suddenly we know a lot, have you not wondered how you don’t ordinarily think of some words, but when the occasion arises it just comes out blah! And then you be thinking “wow am I that good”…lol… ok so how did we know we are meant to write entrance exams into any school- words, either we were told or we read it… don’t you see that everything around where you are right now, have some words attached to it, I mean ‘name’…

That is it! I know we all know God created us with words, but what do we create in other people when we speak to them… God created us and gave us a mouth! Why? Don’t say to eat, because if you don’t speak at the market to get the ingredients to use to cook, trust me you ain’t gonna eat nothing… ok you say what if the person is dumb, who says gesticulations don’t communicate words?

It’s not just “show me your friends and I’ll tell you whom you are”, it’s I want to see how beautiful you are by the words you speak and you see beautiful things don’t ask for attention! Attention can’t just leave them! That’s why we all run back to God, because His creation (words) calls for a lot of attention that employs scientists too…

The day you stop seeing your words are created to transport someone somewhere else, you might as well quit… *sorry to say*…

Entertain the right words so long that you begin to imitate and ‘share our fares’… use your words to create beauty in yourself and help people move daily… and if you don’t have it yet, don’t just talk, search it out, read it, digest and meditate them, then speak it…before you have constipations…lol…

I don’t like it when I hear people say, “I wasn’t born with any gift…” non pas vrai du tout- not true at all… we are all born with the gift of words… *tongue out*

I know you also need words when you pray, not just words but the right words and sometimes you don’t have the words to say, sometimes you almost say rubbish…lol…, sometimes I start typing I don’t even have a ready write-up to share on my blog, but I give Him the letters and He then puts the words together, here is what I believe in this kind of situation; when my prayers are at their shortest, I believe God has more room to come in, and breathe into the spaces where I am lacking… but what do we fill those lacking spaces with… Inspiration? We all have to be God-ready! When you are pregnant with falsehood, it’s difficult to conceive the truth…

Your words are transport fares… spend it well…

LOVE YOU ALL ALWAYS

MY SISTER ‘THOUGHT’ ME HOW TO SAY ‘DADDY’…

Man Holding Up an Infant

Don’t mind the grammar… lol but she also taught me how to say ‘Daddy’, but when I used the word ‘thought’, I mean she made me think of the word ‘Daddy’…

The only Daddy I knew till age nine was my dad, of course I knew and know God is our father, I mean overall and all of that spiritual knowing yeah…

I lost my Dad at age nine *there I said it*… hey! no pity party… though it wasn’t so easy at first knowing if he was alive, at least I would have toured the world conveniently at least before 21…lol… it was that good oh yeah, but then he left. I cried everyday especially as a teenager, anything wrong that happened to me then, I always hinged it on the fact that “well it’s cos my daddy is gone”…then I sob sob sob… it went on like that till about age 18… I wonder how God felt when I say that, but at least I know God doesn’t take His contact lens of Mercy off…lol

Let me tell you what happened at age 18, I was privileged to be at some meetings or fellowship programmes where my sister will be asked to pray and the first thing she says is ‘DADDY’… hian… most times I will open my eyes and say blasphemy…lol… I mean do people pray to the dead? Or is she trying to conjure our daddy’s spirit? Common our daddy is gone, but because I was more of an introverted, secretive person back then, I kept all these thoughts in my heart, staring at her like some ‘anti-Christ’.

She got me vexed one day and said it again Daddy!, when she was praying privately… so I decided to start saying daddy, you know sometimes it’s not good to watch some Yoruba movies *rotfl*, so when something goes wrong, I will pick my dad’s album and say daddy and then I blab on thinking I will receive some earth quaking, curtain flinging, house raising, mountain skipping response… but well No! I was almost tempted to ask her ‘come I beg which daddy please’…lol… until one fellowship day I entered while she was praying, and she said “daddy we”… I looked round hey not ‘we’ it’s I, I mean *everyone don’t got our Dad! *proud look*… lol…

dad4

But then just right there I got a revelation as I saw everyone in awe, bowing down like something poured on the floor *I checked though*…lol…

It wasn’t my earthly dad, it was OUR HEAVENLY DAD… wow *cleans sweat*, so I started reminiscing… and when I pray I will try to say ‘Dad we’ or ‘Dad I’… even though I didn’t have the full revelation of what I was saying as at then *I mean fake it, till you make it isn’t that what peeps say?* lol…

I didn’t want to meet her and ask her how she started calling God ‘Dad’, I wanted to catch the revelation myself… (As if the revelation is running…lol).

*see your experience is limited, if you stop at the revelation you hear or get once whether in church or any other place* SELAH… so I searched on…

Over time I have come to a firm, strong realization that God is ‘my Dad’, not because I don’t have an earthly Dad but “before He formed me He knew me”…

Yeah we call God father, oh yes He is and more, but you see this Dad thing is kind of more personal and intimate, when you say Daddy or have a revelation of Daddy, even when you say father, It’s like you’re sitting just right at His feet and He’s dishing out moon light and sunlight revelations for your manifestation on His creation {earth}, don’t mind the rhymes… lol…

SO HERE ACCORDING TO THE DICTIONARY…

Father; one deserving the respect and love given to a father

Of cos our duty but it’s strong yeah…

Daddy; children’s word for father

dad3

Doesn’t that sound soft… knowing that we should have that ‘child-like’ approach when we talk to God, His word just pierces right through without a polluted adult sphere…lol … “as new born babies desires…”

Your approach to God matters more to you, if you want to get! Or let me put it this way; your getting matters to God, and your approach matters to your getting… it’s important to God as well… *selah…

And that’s the end of my story… lol…

dad2

And to my sister, I celebrate you!

I LOVE YOU ALL!
