WHY THE CHANGE???

I have struggled alot with the direction I wanted this blog to take and finally I know what I wanna do and which I have been doing already. I want to share my life experiences with everyone, air my thoughts and just write about anything thats weighing heavily upon my heart. So, I have decided to rename my blog- "A Walk in my shoes".
 
I began blogging very reluctantly but I am now finding it to be alot of fun. I still don't know if anyone reads it :-((((( but that's not going to stop me. Its fun; I love to write-always have. When I was a kid I loved writing short stories which I did not show too many people because I was not so confident in my work and sadly, I have lost most of the stories I wrote.
 
So, I will take this opportunity to write on various topics and just share with whomever happens to pass by.

ANSWERED PRAYER

Yet again, the Lord has answered my prayer. I have just gone through the most tiring one year plus trying to get my practicing certificate and though the journey is not yet complete, I just have one more hurdle to pass.
 
I am currently engaged in post graduate studies in Law and just got my results and I can proudly say I cleared 9 out of 10 courses. Its kind of hard to understand why anyone would rejoice over something like that but those of us in Law school understand what a mile stone it is to just be done with the bulk of the workload even though one may not necessarily have passed everything. I always joke saying, only in law school can you be congratulated even though you havent necessarily passed.
 
Anyway, the last one year felt like I would never see a ray of sunlight ever but looking back, the Lord has carried me through and I can say with all my heart that, "Thus far has the Lord led me". Iv spent so much time praying that He would see me through and He did just that. It is something I am giving praise to the Lord for everyday because I know I could not have done it without Him. No one will ever understand that I never look back and say, "Yeah, it was all my hard work". I always look back and look above and say, "Thank you Lord, for once again I know you have carried me through". I can testify that the Lord hears our prayers and one way or another, He answers them. I have always felt blessed for how the Lord has dealt and is still dealing with me academically. I will never cease to praise Him in this area of my life. To those looking from the outside, it seems like I breeze through but I have shed so many tears and taken so many hours engulfed in my books such that for me when I receive good news that I have cleared, it always comes with such a great sense of gratitude because I know my efforts were but a drop in the ocean; the Lord does it all. He has blessed me with the ability to retain information but also to put the information retained in a logical manner to be able to answer the exam questions placed before me. I will never stop being grateful, I pray I dont.
 
I am 9 steps closer to my dream. Almost there! I can only imagine what it will be like to finally be able to practice law. Just the thought brings me to tears. One more hurdle to cross and I am trusting in the Lord to see me through.

THE CINDERELLA GLASS SLIPPER MUST FIT ONLY YOU

I had saved those words in my phone a while back thinking to myself that I need to write a blog with that title. I cant even remember if it was just a thought I had or I read it somewhere but I would like to think its the former.

 
 
"The Cinderella Glass Slipper must fit only you!" I just love that coz it has so much truth in it. Many a time women allow themselves to be in the kinds of relationships where they know very well that they arent the only women in their mens lives. How one would know that and still be convinced that the man loves them, I will never understand. I think as a woman you need to realise  firstly, that you are of value. The Bible says we are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139: 14). Now if we as women are fearfully and wonderfully made, then we are of value. The Lord wasn't forming us in our mothers wombs with one eye open and one eye closed. We were being made fearfully and wonderfully. So, lets stop putting ourselves down and realise that we are of value. Therefore, if we are of value then we must not let another human being treat us like dirt.
 
Secondly, a man who trully loves a woman will have only one woman. God did not bring two Eves to one Adam but He brought one Eve to one Adam. Adam did not say they shall be bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh but rather, "She shall be bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh". The Lord meant it to be a monogamous relationship and not polygamous. So why would you allow yourself to be in a relationship with a man who does not have any intention to keep it monogamous. If he trully loved you, He would emulate Adam, his forefather. The cinderella glass slipper must fit only you!


 
 
Thirdly and lastly, the Cinderella glass slipper must fit only you. Every girl knows the cinderella story and how the prince went looking for which maiden would fit the glass slipper and it never fit any other maiden except cinderella herself. It was made in such a way that it would fit only her. Ladies, the conderella glass slipper must fit only you. There is an Eve out there for a particular Adam. Never allow yourself to be deceived by the evil one that you will never find anyone better or you're getting old and no one else will come along or whatever misconceived thoughts you may have. I repeat, the cinderella glass slipper must fit only you. Your true prince will come and when he does, the slipper will fit only you. Let us learn to wait for him. Afterall, no one was ever disappointed who waited. The ones who usually get disappointed are the fools who rush in.

ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD

My mind is constantly on over drive thinking about this and the other. Wondering why this and that are the way they are. Iv found me a book written by Thomas Watson entitled, "All Things for Good". I have embarked on reading this book as I know it will answer most of the questions that fill my head.

So far the writer has shown that in the phrase taken from Romans 8:28, "We know that all things work together for good to them that love God....", there is a glorious privilege. This glorious privilege can be broken down into two categories namely, the certainty of the privilege ("we know") and the excellency of the privilege ("all things work together for good to them that love God"). Simply explained, there is certainty in the privilege and excellency in it because ALL THE VARIOUS DEALINGS OF GOD WITH HIS CHILDREN DO BY A SPECIAL PROVIDENCE TURN TO THEIR GOOD, the writer shows.

How amazing that is; God is just so amazing. It reminds me that God is at the wheel driving and deciding where my life will go, what will happen and regardless of what it may be, all things will work for my good. That is just so amazing and great to know. I need not worry about today or tomorrow or fret about this and the other because He is in control.

Oh that such truths may be sealed upon the tablets of our hearts that we may never forsake them and have them as constant reminders.

ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD!!!
