Do something for him and he will definitely do the same (Part 1)

Do something for God 2

Recently, I have come to love Mathew 6:33 because it tells us all we need to do in order to get all we need, it says “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you”. If you back up a bit in the chapter, you will see that we were being told to seek His kingdom because we were worrying about petty things that He could provide in a snap of a finger.
You see the thing is that I know most people know this verse but it is one of two things, they either don’t want to do it or they don’t know how to do it. I talk about the first thing quickly, if you do not want to do it then I’m sorry but you won’t receive anything from God that is all that there is to it, there is no twist & turns. It is like trying to get something from your parents when you have never done anything good for them in your life, it just won’t work out & if at all they decide to give you something/ do something for you; it will be way less than they could have given you/ done for you. Think about that.
Now for those who don’t know how to do it, it is way straightforward than you think. All you have to do is Drown yourself in everything associated with God. I know the way I put it sounds a bit funny & extreme but I sincerely mean it. Praise him, Pray to him, Devote yourself to him, read his word, hear his message as often as possible; not just on Sundays because I tell you that is not enough at all, listen to music only about him because it lifts your spirits and strengthens your faith, literally drown yourself in him & I tell you he will love you so much & do so much for you. These things are so easy to do but we find ourselves devoting our time to less important things & then we wonder why things do not work out, it is because God is not fully involved in your life equation. I noticed this in myself recently; I sometimes walk a long distance to get to the bus station if I was going to to class or if I wanted to run some errands but on Wednesday I needed to go to church & I said in my mind “woo, I can’t go jare” but on a second thought I realized that I would never say I couldn’t go if I needed to go to class or someplace else, so was God now more important than my classes abi who would even help me pass those classes. So I dragged my self up & went to seek his Kingdom. It is the same with this blog, I stopped writing for a while because I got lazy & tired but I realize that if I had an assignment to type I wouldn’t even think twice(who wants to fail before) but it was not right because I stopped spreading His word & seeking His kingdom in my own little way & by His grace I will never stop. This is how it is for most of us, we put God last so much that we don’t even realize it anymore.

do something for God
LET GOD BECOME THE FIRST.

I pray that as you have read this you will have to grace to always put him first in all things and I pray that as you seek his kingdom today, God will seek you out of the multitudes & bless you abundantly.

 

SONG RECOMMENDATION TIME !

Children of our Father.

Throughout this week(from 3rd of March), I have been reminded from different teachings and readings that I am a child of God & this is not “beans”. For those unfamiliar with my terms I mean “it is no ordinary thing”. The thing is all or most Christians just know this fact but they do not understand how wonderful, awesome, amazing & beautiful this is. I have no words to explain how amazing it is to be child of God but I’ll tell you the benefits then I hope you’ll see why it is truly amazing.
My blessed pastor said recently that if a child is born to a poor family, he has no choice but to stay there & enjoy what the family has and if another child is born to a rich family, he too can’t change his family but will have to stay there(lucky for him !). This is the same story for us children of God, we are born into a King’s family ! A King! and just not just any King but the ONLY King that owns everything both on earth & in heaven, no King in the world can own everything but He does. The funny thing now is that most of us do not see this, we do not realize this. WE ARE IN GOD’S FAMILY, WE OWN EVERYTHING BECAUSE OUR FATHER HAS EVERYHING. We should not be worrying about money, clothes, food, or anything for that fact. No No No, I even feel it is an insult to be worrying about things when your Dad can give you everything. Ephesians 3:20 says that “Now to Him who is able to do EXCEEDINGLY ABUNDANTLY above all that we ask or think…” I need you to realize the power in this verse, it doesn’t just say God can do all things we ask for but it says He will do exceedingly which means what he will do moreee than we can ever imagine in our lifetime. Praise Jesus!
All God asks is that you have faith that he will do it, that is all. Since we trust & have faith in our parents when they promise us something; how much more God ?
I will leave you with this, “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world- our faith.” 1 john 5:4. I’ll dwell on this verse a bit it says you, a child of God, defeats anything that the world throws at you & how do you get this victory, it’s through your FAITH.
I tell you that when you begin to understand who you are in Christ, life will never be the same. I can testify to that anytime.
 I pray that every single person that reads this will begin to see themselves as a child of King and realize that they have & can do everything just because of that.

SONG RECOMMENDATION TIME !
I have friends that usually ask me for songs & I realize that songs help to boost our spirits a lot! so I have decided to recommend songs as often as I can.
1.) He’s able by Deitrick Haddon
2.) This is Amazing Grace by Phil Wickham

Enjoy! & yes I am back, better & stronger in the Lord.

Sincerely unedited.

I received a lot of messages today on my birthday from people saying that I was an inspiration, & how I have helped them in ways that I didn’t even know. Most if them praised my blog & my heart was warmed like I just drank a freshly prepared cup of coffee. ☺😊😊

But the problem is that, I think i am letting them down because I really don’t have to will power or inspiration to write anything anymore. I do have an idea of what to write(sometimes) but I feel like sharing it on wordpress isn’t enough, I need to do something better but I don’t what 💁. I hate feeling like this, I really do. Sometimes I say to myself, “bleh, what’s the use of writing anymore, no one cares” but when people tell me how I have helped through a particular post, I feel really bad. I know shouldn’t stop doing what people find helpful, it’s like “wickedness” in a way.

I still love writing & I pray I find what I’m looking for so that I can continue this.
I love all of you that read this my little space on the web & leave inspiring messages. I pray you all find what you’re looking for.

Sincerely,

Are you worried ?

I am a very big worrier(is that correct?). It is always hard for me to ignore a problem even when I know that I can’t solve it. I realized that worrying is not the way & frankly it’s too stressful & that was when I decided to do something about it then I wrote this post. I wrote this a while ago but I decided not to post it until I could prove to myself that I can do all that I wrote here & I did !!! I had a couple of problems that I didn’t know how to go about solving, I initially tried to plan but it didn’t work & that was when I said “God it’s up to you, do anything you want”. I left it to him, I felt relief & he did do something about it & it was amazing. & now I get to share this with you guys & I hope it uplifts you.
When you’re done I would love if you checked out Philippians 4:6-7(you would find this at the end of the post again just incase you forget to check it out.)

Worrying is like trying to find the sun in the night.                     
                                                      -Amina.

✌✌🙅. Uhn uhn. I know you’re feeling my comparison. 😂

Joking apart, most of usually try to find the sun in the night, killing ourselves over things that we do not have the power to change yet or that we don’t even have the power to change at all.
For instance, take the sun comparison that I made, looking for it is a big waste of time since you obviously do not have the power to find it; same thing with worrying over things, thinking about it is a huge waste of time since you do not have the power to do anything about it.

I know some people mix up worrying with “planning ahead” but there is a huge difference.
Worrying is THINKING about problems. Planning ahead is looking for a SOLUTION to problems.
Huge Huge difference.

Worrying takes you nowhere.

Take me for instance, I am in a dilemma because I can’t decide which courses to take next semester & I seriously do not want to make a mistake of choosing a course that I will regret. I would always think & think about how I would make my decision but that got me nowhere because I was just “Worrying”. Soon I got tired of worrying because it was useless since i couldn’t predict if I would like a course or not, I decided that I would just take more courses than I actually need to take then I would decide from my own experience of a couple of classes, If I actually like the course or not. I don’t know if you quite get the picture though but that’s not important. The important thing is that I don’t know if my plan will work but what I’m 100% sure is that God won’t fail me so I don’t need to worry.

Plan, do not “Worry”. If you can’t plan then leave it to God.

Now there are some things that we can’t make up a plan for, this is when you leave everything to the Big guy upstairs. I tell you that it is better to give all your worries to God, he can handle it better.

God’s got your back.

“Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?
Matthew 6:26-27.

I hope with this few points of mine, I have been able to convince you & not confuse you that worrying is not the way.
😂😂.
Philippians 4:6-7 (the verse again).

How to get away with murder .

This series is amazing. The characters are perfect. The story line is perfect. The suspense is just 👌👌.
I was hooked from the first episode, I would tell myself that after this episode, I would do more important things(oh naive amina) I did this until I finished one season in one weekend.

There was one thing that bugged me about the series though which was the sex scenes. I was really annoyed at how much they were but I ignored it because it was just too good to stop but I honestly regretted watching it. Why ?

Because I couldn’t get it out of my system. I deceived myself thinking that I wasn’t going to remember or think about it since I was skipping the scenes but obviously as I skipped it, wouldn’t I have seen some parts ? Now I don’t mean that I kept on thinking about sex, lol that’s not the case at all but I just kept on imagining & thinking of things that I don’t normally do. I couldn’t pray for a while because I felt like a sinner. I felt awful.
I initially did not even know why I couldn’t pray, I just knew that my spirit didn’t feel right with God then after some time I just decided to trace my steps back & eureka ! It was because of what I had watched.
Anyways fast forward. Me & God are an excellent terms now. 😀☺.

I didn’t just tell you this to talk about me & God but I told you this
Firstly cos I like to talk about my experiences & share my lessons(if you’re a regular visitor of my blog, you’d know that).
But more importantly I’m telling you this to let you know that when you feel uncomfortable doing something or when your conscience is telling you not do something. DO NOT DO IT.  It is always most probably the Holy Spirit telling you gently that He does not like what you’re about to take into your spirit. The Holy Spirit does not like to be in an unclean place. If He keeps on warning you & you do not listen He will eventually leave & we definitely do not want that.
Yes we have the freedom to do anything but not everything is good is good for us.

You say, “I’m allowed to do anything”- but not everything is good for you. You say, “I am allowed to do anything”- but not everything is beneficial”. – 1 Corinthians 10:23

Remember to listen to your spirit as you go about this week because the Holy Spirit alone knows what is best for you.

Trust and the Higher Collective – Ovie Emekene.

I need to trust in you
For you to trust in me
But the higher collective
Has no such requirements
The higher collective
Can work things for you
Without your trust
Your trust in the higher collective
Is an added advantage
Your trust in the higher collective
Gives you more than you ask for
Your trust in the higher collective
Sets your feet on a solid rock
Your trust in the higher collective
Sets you apart from your counterparts
Your trust in the higher collective
Will keep doing wonders for you

Poet’s noteGod comes first in everything… Always trust him to guide your footsteps… You never know what good he has for you…

Annoyed Amina.

I came across an article on Linda Ikeji’s blog (click here to article) & I found it really disgusting. A company decided to start making child dolls in order to satisfy the urges of pedophiles.
Pedophile – a person who has sexual interest in children
Source: Merriam Webster dictionary.

The owner of the company claims to be helping people who have the urges & also preventing abuse of children. But hello !!, who agrees with me when I say he is doing the exact opposite ?
Giving them encouragement to indulge in their urges only makes them want to do it more. It’s like saying giving someone porn to watch will prevent them from actually having sex if they get an opportunity. Forgive me if my language is too intense but this needs to be said.

Now I’m not an expert in dealing with pedophiles & I do not know how hard it might be for them to deal with their urges but I know that encouraging them is not they right way & what this company is doing is utterly disgusting & they are just increasing the chances of child sexual abuse.
Please spread the word & maybe someone can do something to stop them.

Sincerely & annoyingly,
As told by Amina
