IN HONOUR OF THE ONE WHO LOVES



Wrapped in swaddling clothes 
You seemed ordinary
But the earth and it's cosmic force loudly pronounced your kingship 

You weren't born to rule 
You already ruled long before the foundation of the earth 
You were born for me 

Compressed into human size
Just so my limited mind may comprehend your worth 
When you touched me 
It was the dance for all eternity 

Your gentle strokes re-wrote my destiny 
You only are my ecstasy 
The definition of true value  

Read: When We Call Him Abba

You are the inestimable jewel of zion
The hope of all mankind

It's to disaster that men reject your identity as Son of God
And  to call you His son is partly true about your identity 
For we know that you are God himself 

You are the Firstfruit of the father
The first-born of the living
The hope of the age to come
And my guarantee of royalty on earth 

Read: Is Jesus Really the Only Way to God?

When you wave your hand
The sea roars
When you blink your eyes
All flesh seize to exist 

Because in you is life and that life is the Light of men 
You are the ripple pleasures my soul embraces
The fantasy of religion but the unequal truth and reality of those who acknowledge you as God 

To be loved by you is priceless 
To be owned by you is of inestimable worth 

You are the sparkle in my eyes 
The pleasure of my soul and yes of my body 
For it decays in corruption until the trumpet blast on which I shall be changed 

Changed, changed to become like you 

You are a worthy king
Beloved of the father 
Slained before the foundation of the earth 
Slained for my justification 

The price of my worth 
No degree of pleasure or bouts of ecstasy
can compare to the break of dawn when I awake in your arms 

Read: Diplomacy or Denial

Tree of life 
Garden of pleasure 
The beginning 
The End 

The father's untold story 
The consummation of God and man 
I stand complete in you 

Head of principalities and powers 
Ruler of all ages 
The crown and cocoon of creation

Annie Adores you 
Mystery of the father revealed in me

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 emptiness of hope

Read part 1 here  In Lagos, I fell ill as soon as I landed. The city is crazy. The traffic is unholy and the carbon monoxide infested air is an extension of hell. I didn't want to get back on that road to any hospital so we got a qualified nurse to come treat me at home.  The Nurse said she couldn't treat me except I did a pregnancy test alongside malaria test. Both came out positive. I was glad that the sickness wasn't Lagos madness inspired. My baby must have wanted to notify me since I refused to take a second look. Unfortunately, she used one of those quinine brands  in attempt to protect the baby. She sadly didn't check with me first.  I became miserable from all the itching like one who hugged devil's beans. I tried to rest as much as I could and thoroughly enjoyed both my family and ministry itinerary while being pampered like an egg. I preached passionately at the event I was invited to. I talked about loving God and serving him devotedly even when disa

GOD IS KIND: The Courage of patience

Read part 2 here It was a beautiful morning and yours truly was still bleeding.  I just got done making breakfast and was about to set the table when I felt an extra weight down there. I left the kitchen, washed my hands and sent it below while squatting. Men and brethren, see who fell off me.  The 1cm Fibroid they said I should be operated for A better view of the monster My husband and I gave thanks . God had delivered me early. I took these photos as proofs of his kindness and as reminders that He is still with and for me, regardless.  I became hopeful and patiently waited to conceive another. I can't deny  that I had several moments of sadness and weeping. My husband who wasn't moved by the situation became worried for my worry. He bought me things, took me out regularly and kept asking what he could do to make me happy. While I appreciated his efforts, they weren't enough to comfort my grieving soul. I had many, many days of sadness.   January went by, so did February.
