THIS TIME WILL PASS- poem

Silence embraces the still of the night
The gentle breeze races from east to west
The stars twinkle as the night lay still
A peep through the window
The sight of moving clouds are caught
They move like packages assigned to a port of delivery


In the dead of the night
All and sundry lay to rest
I toss myself from left to right
Praying the night to roll by fast
The grief of my soul possesses my thought
The walls of my throat strain from groans
I gnash my teeth
Crying, yet quiet
So as to keep the dead of the night


I am tempted to wish for death
Because i think no one understands
I try to hear the words of the SPIRIT
But i hear woos and woes
A peep through the window
The sight of moving clouds are caught
As i stay my look on them for help
I hear the voice so still from within

"This time will pass
This time will pass
Day and night are constant so long as the earth endures
You can be sure to smile
When the clouds give way for the sun
Hold on my child", it says

A sense of peace fills my heart
When i remember that after A comes B
After seed time comes harvest
After rain comes sunshine
Then i lay myself to sleep
Knowing that the spirit rules the night

I hear a voice calling from a distance
Wake up! it's the dawn of a new day
I open my eyes only to see
That the silence of the night
The dead darkness of the night
Has been replaced by the birth of a new start
Hence, when i go through the night
I remind myself of one TRUTH
This time will pass

GOD IS KIND : The hurt of dissapointment

Sometimes you can't even ask why. Perhaps because you know everything doesn't quite lie in God's hands. Yet when it comes to things you have absolutely no control over, you are tempted to think it's in His hands. Even at that, you still can't ask why. Well maybe you can, but I can't.  I have had a good dose of pain and disappointment enough to separate my ideology of God from life's occurrences. Before life started giving me rude shocks, I used to think God will always protect me by preventing pain. As I grew older and met with more battles, I learnt to accept the part of God's protection which delivers  me from pain well after I have felt its excruciating bite and I came to this conclusion; God is and is forever kind. The earth is fallen; I may not be exempted from all its ugliness, but God will always be kind enough to deliver me if He doesn't prevent it.   By the time you will be reading this, I would have shared my testimony. While I hop

GOD IS KIND: The potency of trust

Read Part 4 here On this third day of praise, I felt like drinking Chinese tea. My praise jam was on already and I was reading my bible and making my confessions in preparation for my dance. I couldn’t shake off the urge to drink the tea. I made it and started sipping.  I started cramping badly. I was wondering why is this happening, I’ve had my period already. I don’t have endometriosis anymore. I will tell you how God delivered me from that one shortly.I continued my dance in pain. Before I knew it, I felt pressured below. I washed my hands and sent it there. Men and brethren, Look who came out . Both are the same fibroid. Picture 1: After I washed it. Picture 2: When it just fell out. I  felt different  emotions at once. One of which was fear. Ah God! What is this again? Are there more? What next? How long would this monster keep coming back? I summoned courage and resumed my praise. I gave my best dance that third day.  Shortly afterwards, my husband called. I didn’t know if I shou

SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT

Social media has always been there; but not everyone paid close attention or saw the need to set up a profile for themselves or their businesses.   With COVID-19 radically obstructing the norm, more individuals and businesses have woken up to the necessity of having a social media profile.  I believe you have been woke for a very long time or perhaps you are just waking up. Either way, congratulations!!! Perhaps you got on board and  realised that it is not as easy as people make it seem.  You wonder how to successfully handle your social media pages to correctly represent your personality and opinion as an individual.  You have barely figured out how to use Facebook to successfully promote your business, only to hear people say Instagram is the best marketing platform and you are confused. You barely find time to post because your actual life or business routine is too full You hear about the many social media platforms- google+, Pinterest, Linkedin, Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat, Perisco
