So the Devil talks to YOU?

So the devil talks to you?

I had this conversation with someone. But lemme back up a bit.

Ibadan-20120131-02702

Last week Monday, we had a prayer meeting at Kado estate. Afterwards, I was walking with my girl Mimi to a place where I could get a cab home easily. Recall that I am still new in Abuja and so I still need help every once in a while. Tz easy getting around though cos Abuja is more organized, relative to gidi that is. Anyways, a Church member graciously offers to give me a ride and so I hop in. He had some American preacher on his screen and we were enjoying the ambience and gisting. Naturally we gisted around the lines of how I have been enjoying Abuja and stuff. Amongst other things, I told him what happened to me yesterday (being sunday).

You see, I had spent the weekend with JMAD our starship and Somsom her ‘cousin’,

JMAD

and Saturday was a bit of an intense day for me. Too many little things went wrong and I was just too happy to come home and burst into mini tears. The next day Sunday was LDM, Abuja and I knew I wouldn’t go home to return in the evening for LDM jare so I packed a double. In all the packing hoopla, I forgot to transfer money from the Saturday casual bag to the Sunday church bag. So all I had in the Sunday bag was some loose change totaling a grand sum of N140. I realized this only when I was going to give my offering and stuff. How come I didn’t realize it when I boarded a cab to chuch? That was ‘cos I had left home with Somsom who goes to COZA and she graciously paid for the whole trip to my church while she dropped at hers before me. I added the N100 cos the cab man didn’t have change and stuff so I had just N40 left. All the while, I didn’t realize I had no other money ooo. Now I usually have my offering, tithe and any other seed I am sowing in my bible a few days before church. That way I don’t start looking for loose change to drop on Sunday morning abeg. I take my offering very seriously. That day was no exception and so all I had was that. No money for both t.fare and to eat and I was going to get home no earlier than 9pm and it would cost me no less than 2K to do the necessary transport to my friend’s house where I would chill b4 the program, and also to the LDM venue gangan and then back home.

So at the point of packaging my offering, tithe and thanksgiving seed, the devil told me ‘Eziaha. You know you don’t have money for tfare so reduce the tithe and then pay it later’ I said err, nope. He said ‘OK pay tithe but you can save the seed for transport and give it next week’ I considered it for a minute and just decided WARRAHECK!!! God can provide for my transport jare lemme not mess with any of my money for God jare. So I dropped all that I had intended to drop.

DSC05018 (This is a real old picture. Happy to run into it)

So as I was gisting the guy who I would call Chuchu for now, the first thing he asked me was ‘So the Devil talks to you? Because he doesn’t talk to me ooo.’ For shizzle!!! I told him ‘Yes the devil talks to me just as he talks to everybody else.’ Heck, he even spoke to Jesus, tempting him. By talking, it doesn’t mean me and am pull seat, siddon dey yarn ooo. No time for that. He drops thoughts and ideas in our hearts and sometimes he speaks through people. (I am sure you know a few LOL).

uuu

Ah the devil is not just a silent one ooo. In fact I do think he is a talkative jare. If he stays silent, then how does he run the earth because he is the god of this natural world and he is working in the hearts of the children of disobedience (unbelievers)and speaking through them ooo. Some stupid people who are oblivious that the devil is speaking through them ooo LMHO

stupid (i absolutely LOVVVVVVE this hahahahahaha)

I felt Chuchu said that to mean something like he is too holy for the devil to talk to him. AKUKO… But when I was done explaining to him, he understood better. The devil goes about talking rubbish, but thankfully God also talks and I have been trained to recognize his own voice too and so I can yield to Him alone.

voice

Like I have heard Joyce Meyer say which I would attempt to paraphrase- we don’t have to be too conscious of the devil and his shenanigans and be all scared, but it would also be foolish to totally ignore the devil. Even the bible advises that we should not be ignorant of the devices of the enemy/devil. The deal is don’t pay him more mind than he deserves. Don’t start over giving him attention jare. But be aware of him jare and be on the offensive. Recently something happened in the life of my friend and she was so scared and I just laughed at the devil cos I was standing in the place of prayer with her and I already knew how the end would play out and so I told her ‘babes, let’s not magnify this thing more than normal jare and make the devil start feeling important.’ LUBBISH!!! And when that matter was over I told the devil, you sha know who to try. You know that you can’t try that absolute RUBBISH with me cos it can’t even work, OLODO!

And just incase you are wondering, yes I talk back to him sometimes, how else will I tell him to ‘GO TO HELL’. Sometimes I even stop and laugh at him. But most times, phew, I just ignore him, I just couldn’t be bothered. I am more interested in talking to my Lover Jesus and the Holy Spirit and all the angels that need to be sent on many assignments, one of which was asking them to organize my transport back home without sweating. And just incase you wanna know, someone dropped me off at Berger and paid for the cab that took me straight to the gate of my Jmad’s house.

IMG-20130127-00344

And lucky for me JMAD had coconut fried rice, vegetable salad and chicken waiting for me as dinner. JMAD is such a sweetheart. That’s why we call her STARSHIP… Muah… And nope baby, you are not a tadpole :p

JMA (na wah ooo Three pictures in one post. i will charge you ooo)

And meanwhile you do realize that part of the devil’s wiles and antics for that situation would have been to make me hold back some of my seed, and then later he will tell me ‘ha ahn, but you dropped a part already na, who says you have to still drop again. Moreover you know that you need this money for so so and so’ and trust me, the devil would have arranged one stupid “so so and so” need that would make it tougher to drop the money at a later time.

My dear, please don’t even be ignorant of his devices jare and the fact that he talks.

Because he does…

Kisskiss

Random Musings

RANDOM MUSINGS

*in my Mexican accent* Holla…. *AIR KISSES*

O=)Angel o' ♥ _

Today is a beautiful Sunday and the girl just feels like musing…

Random stuff on my mind… LET’SSSSS

First of all this cant be real na…?

roh

As in how is this possible?

You know I have been writing an article in my head about stuff that are too much for me to comprehend. The very first has to be ladies toasting men and proposing to ‘em. Lemme not jump abeg. I will still do it. But please this is one too. I don’t even like it when men drink talk less of ladies… ewwww. Please ooo I am not judging ooo. My brother drinks and popsie too but my boo doesn’t and for that I am really grateful. How do you even kiss a mouth stinking of gulder, not even irish cream? And drinking from the bottle on your wedding day…? double ewwwww. thanks to my dear laide for this pix and the many others. If you were not married to that fab woman I would have found you a wifey…  hehehe

More musings

Kim K is in Nigeria.

kk (the Cops are stifling a laff there hehehe)

Yeah yeah please roll your eyes. I am amazed as to how people say they don’t like her and yet they consider her newsworthy and follow her up on SM sites. Abeggiii make I hear.

Kim Kardashian arrives Lagos Nigeria for Darey's LLAM concert (5)

I like  Kim sha just as I like Kimora hehehe.

images

In fact her ‘life on a fab lane’ inspired my blog rider ‘Living the Christ life on a fab lane’ They provide great entertainment and they are really fine ooo complete with hot bods… Phew…. But their lifestyle? Let’s just say that I, like Obama, will NOT let my kids even see an episode.

images

Not totally sha but mostly I would not endorse some stuff they do. But Kimora is a badt business woman ooo.

j

And Kris Jenner dey help Kim try small as her mom-ager.

imageshh

Ok that’s just me musing about Kim being in Naija. If I was in lag, I would NOT have gone tho… D love no reach like that… But the chic is powerful tho…and a super star like    it or not even in Naija cos the minute chica tweeted ‘on my way to Naija’ na so she start to trend at number one here knocking off Goldie whose death and marriage had been trending for two days. SMH for Twitter mourners… Sorry ‘mourners’

Ok on to the next…

I am amazed as to how God settles me church wise every where I go. When I was leaving Ibadan I was sad and happy. Yeah I had graduted and stuff but TA (Triumphant Assembly that is ) was really IT ALL… I mean ALL… I was VERY HAPPY. I had the best of the very BEST Pastors and mentors.

Ibadan-20121216-04848

The gift of access I enjoyed. I also enjoyed LOVE. I loved my church and church members. I still do. I had INCREDIBLE FRIENDS there.

IMG-20110821-00030

I had real prayer partners. Deep ladies and guys. My Drama team was WOW!!!

IMG-20110820-00006 (I can’t even forget this overnight  rehearsals for drama night. their hands hurt them tire cos they were human props hehehe. our director was not mean)

Church was my fam… And I loved us all.

Ibadan-20121216-04824

I won’t attempt to mention names cos I would run into trouble. You guys take my blog way too seriously jare LOL… I knew leaving Ibadan meant I would have to do DCC in Lagos. Hmmmm… The stuff I really loved about DCC was Pastor K and Pastor M…

MildRED

I really had my hangups and stuff about ‘after preaching church activities.’ Don’t get me wrong DCC is a DREAM church but TA was too on my mind and the transition wasn’t gonna be easy. So I decided that I would go to church, join a unit (I can’t bear to NOT be in a unit in church. How do you people do that? I am doing a special blogpost for you guys and nope it won’t be pretty). Oh something else I loved about DCC was the flat shoes ladies used to wear. I am tripped by heels and in a student community you see quite a lot. But in DCC, ladies used to wear really nice flats. Now I realized that they used to then because work in the Dome (yes we use a Dome for service. A real EXPENSIVE PRETTY DOME) especially the floors were not done and so ladies were rocking flats wella to preserve the heels. LOL Now they rock heels wella. Ok back to my DCC plan. I’ll join a unit and then go home after church simple. I didn’t have a single friend (I mean like my TA friends) there and I didn’t intend to make so much friends (goodbyes are teary) cos I had a plan to rush back to Ibadan as often as possible and then a grand plan to go serve in Oyo state. Thinking about my plan now makes me smile. So I did just that. But mehn, when I got ‘ere in November, I made a few friends, had a few fans who knew me from my blog, enjoyed a few kodak moments, gave out plenty of my famous squeezy  huggy hugs (What!!! You haven’t received any of my hugs. Gee! How do you sleep at night?), joined a second fantastic unit and DCC began to look like IT. But I still knew I was moving back to Ibadan for service.

Ibadan-20120130-02596 (STILL MISS MY MULTI COLORED ROOM… D most beautiful room in Anchorage then,,,)

Until God said to me in no unclear terms leaving no room for my opinion, ‘Baby mi toh beauriful (eat ur hearts out :p), your work in Ibadan is done… Oya forward march to Abuja….’ ABUJA… I didn’t know NATIN about Abuja. Had been here once about 6 or 7years ago (of course a few hours wedding trips DO NOT COUNT) for about a week holiday in which I was very protected (I was really young). The boo and I had discussed the POSSIBILITY of settling here MAYBE (pls note the block letters). But moving here for service? Jehovah!!! First thought, what church will I attend that will be like DCC Lagos or TA Shabach ooo? *insert Huge tears*.

I mean wasn’t it bad enough that I was missing Rev Albert’s teachings already

Albert Oduwole(7)

and now PK too. Of course when I went public with the gist, most of my friends in Abuja were happy to invite me to join their churches. I promised nothing tho I said I would visit. But HE led me to DCC Abuja and I told Him let PK preach the first day I step in there. Guess what people, my PK, SORRY PM’s PK no ‘Dassah’s honey (PM :p) sha Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo was there…

pk pm

He came to Abuja to encourage us to pray and have HIgH EXPECTATIONS this new year.

Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo (that is me in red behind… the person that snapped was beefing me and didn’t let me show)

DCC Abuja is new and growing and trust me, that is my kinda thing… If you see the way I love DCC Abuja eh… Tz almost UNBELIEVABLE.

Abuja-20130209-01218

I thought it would take me time to settle in and stuff.  And the absolute best part of church is my Pastor (sorry Mimi baby you are the second best). Pastor B is a chip off the old block…

Abuja-20130128-01039

I really don’t miss PK like I thought I would cos mehn Pastor B is loaded. You can see that ise Oluwa shacks him. Seriously I am so inspired… God really went ahead of me on this one sha and ‘organised’ this before I showed up. I feel really blessed… So i might as well add that if you are in Abuja and you do not like your church  have a church where you are grounded, as a Worker and stuff, please feel free to join us every sunday at Cubana lounge on Adetokunbo Ademola street, Wuse 2, and wednesdays at APPLES REACH just slightly adjacent Cubana at 6.30pm. i would be, and my Pastor too, very happy to see and welcome you and if you are a lady, you get the special E’ hug… hehehe… Trust me hon, DCC Abuja ROCKS… A trial and YOU ARE HOOKED!!!

That said I DO MISS REV Albert Femi oduwole. *wailing* And I also miss Ibadan. I was talking to someone and said ‘Ibadan’ instead of Lagos. That said though, 15 MORE DAYS TILL I SEE REV…Yippppppppppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

 

 

 EziahaO_)Omoteniola;;)

Can’t wait… *Azonto and etighi* Actually it is till ‘we’ see Rev. ‘we’ being a singular term. *wink* And I actually get to see my Ibadan peeps. I am soooo amazed as to how people miss me ooo. They call, bb, text oh wow!!! I even hear they tell my story, use my name for sermons (I ordered a message and as I listened recently it was a real pleasant surprise to hear my name oooooo chai). When I was leaving, did I mention that NOT  few people cried… I am like WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok I too cried but hey, na wah ooo. Please I want to meet more people like Eziaha ooo and I am serious.

Ok next musing…

Abuja guys need JESUS… Seriously!!! They actually do. And that is All this  very pretty, hot, fabulous, 5ft 11 woman of God will be saying on this matter. Ok let me just add that if I were a runs babe eh, by now I would have acquired a property in Maitama. My friend says my hips don’t lie… I say Double d’uh…

Musing next…

So I had been rolling around the choice of my Chief in my head (That’s what happens when you are the last child/baby, not a twin, and have at least 4besties and applications from other friends) and when I finally decided on one of ‘em and told her, if you see the drama that went on between us you would have thought it was a marriage proposal. I am so sparing you guys the details #poko (been wanting to use that. No idea what it means)

Nexxxxxxxxxxxxxxttt…

My blog is making impact. Please can you believe this? OMgosh!!!

i_love_blogging1

Of course there are some details going on that I can’t share but I can say that some people made the LDM Abuja from my blog.

DCC LDM feb 10 2013

Someone came from Asaba. And some of you in Abuja, single n ready to settle, that LDM came to your dormot, una no come. An atmosphere with sooo much anointing and people that you may meet sef and sound teachings too from PK life and direct, and you didn’t make it. Wait ooo I have a special blogpost for you, Una dey wait for me to write the message out on my blog. Mschewwwww… I’m pretty miffed so I will move on.

So the Asaba girl hung out in Abuja for a week and came to church Sunday and Wednesday. Sweetie twas really nice meeting you and I really should pray you to Abuja ooo.You fit in well here jor… *forgot to snap with her. too busy*

I also met others who came for the program. Btw, some of you owe me an email  or fb in-boxes and stuff so I am waiting kk

Even in Abuja in random places, I really mean the most random of places, I meet people who recognize me from my blog. I really should be careful what I ask for and say cos I get ‘em. At the start of the year, I prayed over and blessed my blog. I called it a TESTIMONY. My blog forms a part of my 2013    confessions. Gradually I see fruits… Like someone doing an ABOUT FACE on a relationship wey don tey cos of something I read on my blog. Seriously!!!!!!! You guys rock sha. *big Eziaha styled hugs* Thank you so much for making this blog a part of your life and for all the online and offline messages. The number of offline messages are alarming.

u

So now I have started harassing people to post the messages online abeg. And here is me also saying it. Please make una dey read and comment too and spread word. If I make you happy then make me happy on this one kk. READ AND DROP  A LINE. Oshay… You can comment anonymously too. I also have amebos here ooo and seriously I see you guys and I just press the ignore button… I just couldn’t be bothered… I am just too busy making progress *insert three uninterested BBM smileys here for good measure*

Ok next..

So we lost Goldie.

index

I wasn’t a fan… don’t know any of her song, didn’t watch her on BBA and didn’t really care for her but her death like many other deaths, was painful. I was particularly pained with twitter comments about her and stuff. Respect for the dead should not be included in a college or high school curriculum before someone knows it is the right thing to do. Like it or not, the babes was someone’s daughter, wifey, bestie, friend, sister, aunt, etc… Before being that star, she was a HUMAN BEING jare. But then again, twitter can be a real JOKE. So I don’t always take it too seriously. Tz my prayer that God comforts those who are truly mourning her, amen. Her death got me thinking tho. We really should live knowing that one day we would die and would spend eternity (way longer than we have spent on earth even if you live to 120) somewhere. So live heaven conscious. Infact with that kinda mindset, when people mourn us, they do not mourn like people without hope because they know and we know too that we are indeed in a better place. Especially if you are a Nigerian. Me I am looking forward to heaven especially because NEPA people are not going to make heaven we don’t have to bother about light there… wooooooooooooot!!! Death should not be so bad na… with this knowledge. Except of course for those that would miss us. #RIPGoldie.

So let’s end this on a love note… Valenetine fever is over abi?

valentines

Told ya it would not last… the cure is really Feb 15th. So I hope you didn’t do anything stupid ooo. Hope we all got gifts too even if from yourself. One babes was whining on BR that she got no gifts and stuff. Me I told her that next year she should DHL a gift to herself and arrange to have it delivered on Val’s day. Smart yeah? I thou  ht so too.

Speaking of gifts aside Phone calls and e-lovages from amazing people, Vals was spent, after wrapping and delivering Val packages of course, watching movies with Mimi.

Abuja-20130215-00169

Single ladies was the movie title… Movie without a lesson except really nice dresses. Mehn the ladies dressed to kill ooo. But it was too unreal. I know you are itching to know what I gave the boo… How that one take consign you? . I know you are also itching to know what Aku m did. Infact we have been arguing about this ooo.

Aku m ♥

I have an idea what he wants to get me cos he has been hinting so I came all out and asked him NOT TO. Reason? While I agree that I need it ooo, over need it sef, but I just feel we have better things to do with money and stuff especially now. I said it could wait and I offered a CHEAPER ALTERNATIVE. See argument ooo. He INSISTED… I said NO. he said ‘You don’t have a choice sorry’ He was now quoting PK that when a woman says SAVE she means SPEND and when she says DON’T BUY IT HONEY IT CAN WAIT, don’t answer her ooo, just go ahead and buy… chai!!! Guess who won? HE DID!!! Yay me!!! *straight face* But seriously baby, you are my real gift…

jj

my COVENANT VALENTINE FOR LIFE and truly EVERYDAY with you is a VALENTINE…

scan0002

Love you forever Aku m… (Aku m means my treasure in Igbo or wealth. I prefer treasure, for those of you that want to kill me with asking)

4x6 copy

Yeah, I shared that story above to make you very jealous. I hope you are. And don’t bother planning evil, we are COVERED hehehe. No try yasef ooo.

Drained!!! Started out thinking this would take one hour. NOPE IT DIDN’T EVEN TAKE TWO… Great read is absolutely hard writing ooo. The things I do for y’all. So make sure you are commenting okies… And by the way I respond to almost comment especially EVERY COMMENT that has a question. So go back and read ooo when you comment. Someone almost missed LDM cos she felt I didn’t comment.

Have a BLESSED week ahead… filled with endless possibilities

E’ hugs (for every morning and night this week)
