imagine me...

I just can’t stand …
Her beauty my ugliness
Her righteousness my shame
Her peace my burdens
Her laughter my tears
Her openness my fear of letting go
Her faith my doubts
But he still loves me I am not her and he doesn’t mind at all
In my ugliness he sees beauty
He gave me his righteousness
Took my burdens and gave his peace
Enjoys my laughter and wipes my tears
Wants to hear my heart, he wants me free from fears
He has given me a measure of faith and even when it feels as small as a mustard seed most times … it still moves mountains
I am not her but he stands beside me now, always, forever.

God doesn't compare us with anyone- so if you're anything like me i've got 3 words for you:
break the habit!!
his love and peace. chichi

looking ahead...

You Have Our Attention, Lord
Prayer offered by Max Lucado© 10/4/2008
(Printable PDF)
Our friends lost their houseThe co-worker lost her jobThe couple next door lost their retirementIt seems that everyone is losing their footing
This scares us. This bailout with billions.These rumblings of depression.These headlines: ominous, thunderous-“Going Broke!” “Going Down!” “Going Under!” “What Next?”
What is next?
We’re listening. And we’re admitting: You were right.
You told us this would happen.You shot straight about loving stuff and worshipping money.Greed will break your heart, you warned.Money will love you and leave you.Don’t put your hope in riches that are so uncertain.
You were right. Money is a fickle lover and we just got dumped.
We were wrong to spend what we didn’t have,Wrong to neglect prayer and ignore the poor,Wrong to think we ever earned a dime. We didn’t. You gave it. And now, tell us Father, are you taking it?
We’re listening. And we’re praying.Could you make something good out of this mess?
Of course you can. You always have.You led slaves out of slavery,Built temples out of ruins,Turned stormy waves into a glassy pond and water into sweet wine.
This disorder awaits your order. So do we. Through Christ,Amen· • • • ·
God will always give what is right to his people who cry to him night and day, and he will not be slow to answer them. (Lk. 18:7 NCV)

so much is going on in the world today, literally all you hve to do is turn on your raido, open the newspaapers, switch on the television, eavesdrop on conversation and you would wish you existed on another planet... one that is a total opposite of this one you and i live in.

I can only think of one thing more than ever when i listen to the news, or hear stuff... something BIG is about to happen in this world... could God's coming be any closer? what a question right? I mean everyday brings closer the coming of the groom, for those who are engaged isn't everyday that goes by a countdown to the 'WHEN', to the 'D-daay'.

in high school when people talk about the RAPTURE, immediatedly, you have the so called 'bad girls' turn 'saintly'... and how long did that last, maybe a week or even less. then you had the 'spiros' getting self righteous with themselves.... I used to be one of those back then, it is good to 'grow up' lol!

at the risk of sounding like a party pooper, or raining on anyone's parade.... I just hope WE... and believe me I am no exception to this, always remember Christ return- and make every second count.

my sister has been in 'blogsville' all this while, i am pained she just told me today!! *insert sulking face* this is her, and should you feel inclined to say 'hi' by all means do.

God show me how to do the better you want me to do, help me with the self i struggle with everyday. in jesus name. amen.

off to read o!!!

his peace. my love. chichi

my gbedu...

artiste :adele...

"when the rain is blowing on your face
and the whole world is on your case
i could offer you a warm embrace
to make you feel my love.

when the evening shatters and the stars appear
and there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
to make you feel my love.
I know you haven't made your mind up yet

but i would never do you wrong
i've known from the moment that we met
no doubt in my heart where you belong.

I'd go hungry
I'd go black and blue
I'd go crawling down the avenue
know there's nothing that I wouldn't do
to make you feel my love

the storms are raging on the rolling sea
and on the high way of regret
the winds of change are blowing wild and free
you aint seen nothing like me yet

I could make you happy make your dreams come true
nothing that i wouldn't do
go to the ends of the earth for you.
to make you feel my love.


i just loovvee the sincerity of the lyrics
love is something ain't it?
his peace.chichi

Monday, 10 November 2008


thank you for the sunlight
i no longer have to fight
for now you give me rest
for now all is well
and whenever the sea may churn

Lord you will see me through
because you never change
as you did yesterday so you will do today.

i cry each time i remember
how sad i used to be
how misery and depression
never let me see

all that you were doing
all that you had given

to go through the night
and wake up to your light.

my faithlessness could not keep you bound.
my lord i bow before your throne
my foolishness did not make you turn away
you saved me.... Lord you saved me.

i look at the days ahead
and i smile in my heart
because lord, you have made things right again.

because you answer prayers Lord i will pray
and i will by grace trust you through my pain.

Today is a new begining for me-thank you-
i can dream of a 'happy-ending'
Lord you saved a soul, i hope you know.
my soul forever thanks you.

and when darkness falls on my world;
Jesus help me to say 'thy will be done.'
holy spirit teach me to be stay strong-
and I know I will come out of the storm

full of Joy because I overcome.


"we are often troubled but not crushed, sometimes in doubt but never in dispair, there are many enemies but we are never without a FRIEND, though badly hurt atimes never destroyed."

his peace. chichi

a glimpse into yesterday

I must admit that i had second thoughts about doing this, telling about God's goodness to me is one thing, getting all personal is another!!

but I got reminded about a sermon my brother gave a while back at church, where he said it is about GOD all the time and not about ME... and so knowing that not sharing a testimony is making me more important than God somewhat, i have decided to come out, thank God for the boldness!!

God has done alot for me and my family to be honest, picking out one singular thing is difficult because he has done so much for me; for us.

i was looking for the verse in the bible that talks about God being faithful even in our unfaithfulness, i think is hebrews but i am not sure where [if u know abeg tell me.].

2007 was a very difficult year for me and my family; we seemed to be receving hits fro everyside, battles being fought left, right and centre, mehn it was not beans or yam at all!!

it is good that i can make a joke about it now, because in that time, i did not know who God was anymore, i did not recognize him, and he seemed to be too quiet for my liking...

my sister had a miscarrage and she got pregant again, but that too had drama, i remember the night she woke up to pee only to be soaked in blood, i was so scared my sister ran straight into my mother's room at 2a.m there about, i can still see the look on her face when she said ' i wanted to pee... i am bleeding'. we just us ladeis got into the car, speaking in tounges calling on God all the way to the hospital; my heart was in my mouth... would you believe that it happend again!!

my brother had been studying for a phd and at the end the university gave him a diploma; to say he was gutted is an understatement... he worked hard very hard; i know because i remember seeing him on the floor of the living room books all around him... researching stuff on a laptop he burrowed from a friend. did we pray? kai we-as in my entire family prayed fire and thunder when we gathered to pray as a family and even individually. but somehow he got a diploma, we are shaken up...

what about yours truly? there was a problem with my admission at the university i attended, and i had to wait indefinately till it was sorted out! talk about drama; my mates were attending classes, sitting exam and i was at home, or at the uni begging Mr. A and Mr. B to look into my case. to be honest with you at a point i snapped, as in i snapped snapped.... my life was becoming a living hell!

2007 was a difficult year... very difficult indeed. we prayed, we cried.... my family almost lost me....

but that was not the end at all....

my sister on the 4th of febuary 2008 gave birth to the most amazing and cutest baby ever [second to my own sha when the time comes lol!] even with all the drama that happened in that preganacy God enabled her carry it to full term!! he is amazing... and did i say my neice is the cutest baby ever?

my brother got a first class from oxford university, he did a programme with them and got a first class!! now is God not too much, and not from one 'small' university o! Oxford university!!!

and me... i got out into the UK to start school; even though i have had to go from the beginning... i feel God's hand and love everyday i am here. my brothers keep telling me i am better off here, whenever i tend to get so overwhemled and scared... and I know i am even in the 'little' things i see God working out something really great. i had thought i had no future-that it was over, but i see God is just getting started with me! halleluyah.

God is good, to any of his sons and daughters out there having a trying period; God is good- and this too shall pass, I -WE can testify to that.

tough times will come, but God is able to carry you through them, and his love is dependable.

to those who are yet to know him- God loves you, and even though you do not acknowlege him he will forever be good to you. try him and you will be glad you did... he is a father, a friend, and a worthy saviour.


father WE are trusting you for so much more, thank you because you are ever faithful and you will come through.

i would not proof read this, as i feel so 'naked' already! no mind me shey is me that wanted to do 'testimony time' anyhow. ..just so that i do not 'edit' anything so pardon any spelling error.

his peace. chichi
