A 31 day Devotional for the FAB.Warrior.Mom (PDF Download)

Hiiiiiii guyssssssss….

I have never been more excited doing any Project than I was this.

red

Plus one of the nods I got from heaven (aside a knowing in my Spirit of course) was the GRACE to do short posts.

Yawl know we do Posts in thousands of words on this lane but this devotional has 100 words and below for each day. Like I would write and write and when I check the Word Count, it would be 98 words.

AWESOME!!! Grace was at work mehn…

I did this in the middle of a crazy schedule but I was just strong through it all. I LOVED doing this.

L O V E D!!!

Emailed hubs after I was done and his feedback was gushingly positive.

#ProudWife #GoingForTheWOW

I hope you not only download BUT you honor God by setting time out to PRAY after you read it.

I also hope you share this with every woman you know because EVERY woman is actually a MOM.

Maybe a bit biased but this DEVOTIONAL is EVERYTHING!!! I wrote the kinda devotional I would LOVE to use. It is soooo fun to read while passing across the Message. No pressures. No trying to impress. No big English or high-faluting words. Just an absolutely delicious and nutritious FUN read.

I also can’t wait to dig in. Starting right from May 1 and when the month is over, we start again from Day 1.

And hey, you may wanna hook or team up with a couple of friends and enjoy it together so that way, yawl can be accountable. Read, discus it, dig up related scriptures, discus some more and then PRAY!!!!!!!!!!!

I HOPE YOU CATCH THE FIRE!! Gosh, I wanna see more women ON FIRE for Jesus. I wanna see more women terrorising the devil.

Shout out to Frances of Imperfectly Perfect blog for her help in making the download possible and thanks to my babies Derin and Teniola who are my major PUMP FACTORS!!! And Ngozi and Stephanie for all the help with CANVA too.

And of course, my absolutely absolutely amazing hubs. His feedback and love for it just made me so happy. He is the only one who saw it in full before now and he said he was particularly blessed by the meaning I gave to and how I applied the Scriptures in very relatable ways. And the absolute delight of my life, my FIRSTBORN SON, KingDaveed.

Gosh I think the picture is PERFECT!!!

I would look forward to your thoughts too when you read. Lemme know what you think and your constructive reviews too.

Now I am looking forward to writing my first Book. If God really sends you, He graces you and the journey is wayyyyyy easier. But first, I can’t wait to dig into this Devotional starting TODAY, May 1.

Happy NEW Month (to WAR) guys.

I am thinking of doing a video on this devotional. Just sharing how I wrote it and maybe some stories behind the scenes plus the ones that didn’t make the cut. Maybe that’s how I will enter the vlogging lane. What do Yawl think?

#PropheticMotherhood… What Pst Dotun Arifalo said

 



There’s a Part 1 here
#PropheticMotherhood… What DDK said
This series builds up so start from there aii?
Pastor Dotun Arifalo is the ‘Father’ over the ministry, Deborah Initiative for Women. She basically got me born again all over AGAIN!!!

img_20160418_020055.png

I didn’t believe all that was coming out of that woman!!!
Gosh!!!
Let’s just jump in…
Every woman is a PROPHET!!! The prophetic anointing is on me as a woman so it means there is limitless power in my WORDS!!!

Hello all the women/mamas jumping from prophet to prophet to ‘see’ for them. You are a PROPHET hun!!! Beyond speaking LIFE into my children, I can speak life into my husband, into his dreams, into my ideas, into my business, etc. I use my words to create/birth what I sense in my heart and because my words are anointed, I have to be very careful what I speak. I can speak life or I can speak death. I can be a wife or a knife!!!

Being a woman is an OFFICE!!! It is an ORDINATION!!! I can stand in that office and declare things and heaven MUST answer.
I can give life to things beyond children and the entire power lies in my words.
As a woman, I am both a King maker (as I take those seeds in me and make kings of them) and a KING and kings declare so I have to make sure I ain’t using my mouth to talk nonsense or nag.
My words are very powerful.
She also took some time to speak to the Singles.
The greatest gift you can give yourself is the gift of the right man
Don’t go and hook up with someone who will make you start speaking nonsense words ooo.



As a prophetic mother, MOMMY MINISTRY is NOT your ONLY ministry. So as I raise my kids, I should NOT pack up my life permanently.

img_20160418_020043.png

And permit me to unpack this a bit with the Proverbs 31 woman as God explained it to me one morning.

She really was a SUPER WOMAN and as I follow God's will for me, I too can be SUPER

She really was a SUPER WOMAN and as I follow God’s will for me, I too can be SUPER

I was having this convo with God some 3weeks back about Full time stay-at-home mama’s. I actually believe I have an assignment for women in that category and my inbox confirms it (yawl keep writing me). I felt He was telling me that being a FT stay-at-home mom AND NOTHING ELSE is not exactly ALL that He wants for His women and so He got me to draw a line in my journal and open Proverbs 31 in various versions.
On one side, I filled in her jobs in the home and the other side, her jobs outside the home.
I then realised that indeed, that Chick excelled BOTH as a homemaker/domestic queen and a Career woman.
That day, I was CONVINCED that really ehn, your life MUST count for more than just you, your husband and your kids. Yes there are times when you may wanna FOCUS on your home (and i’ll dwell a bit on that with the 3rd speaker Nneka Kyari) but honey, as a woman, you have been called to MUCH MORE!!!

img_20160418_020043.png

As a woman, you can NOT afford to be weak!!! You birth what you are. It is in your genes, strength or weakness. A weak woman will birth weak children. A strong woman will birth strong children. Raising a child is like raising an ARMY!!! You have to be STRONG!!!
Ok, you need to go back and read that again!!!
Good Lord!!!

Woman, YOU BIRTH WHO YOU ARE!!!
There is a difference between a child growing up and a child being raised!!! Some children just grow up, some are RAISED!!! We need to be intentional and consciously RAISE our kids. You are a custodian of destiny. You can’t do it casually.

Aunty, it is advisable to wait some time after marriage to born ehn.

PLAN for ’em kids. Get enough emotional support. Be READY!!! You don’t have to jump from wife to mother immediately. Build your relationship with your husband first. Groom yourself for the journey. Build capacity before you bring forth. It is a HUGE job.
Remember, who you are is who you birth ooo.
Again, don’t pack up your life permanently to raise your kids. Beyond being known as Bolaji Olojo’s wife or ‘mama KingDaveed’ (and side eye to yawl who call me that), I need to be a mama of many other things beyond children ooo. There are ministries, business ideas, etc waiting to be birthed through me!!!
Today’s women WORK beyond housework ooo.
Dear woman, Get Help.

IMG_20160419_210603

Leverage on every opportunity you get/God has given. FOCUS on doing what only you can do and outsource what others can do for you. Cooking and cleaning and being spent from these activities such that you don’t even spend quality time pouring into your kids can’t help anybody ooo. You will just be frustrated and resentful and tired meanwhile the real job has not been done. And might I add that spending time on Telemundo and co because you have Help can NOT help anybody too. Raise up and call forth the LEADER in your kids.
Tz beyond cooking and cleaning.
And tz definitely beyond Telemundo and Zee world.
Quick question: if you do NOT cook personally, will the world come down? NO!!!
But will the world come down if you do NOT RAISE your kids? Pretty much YES!!! Your own world will come down.
Your kids ought to see you both as mom AND mentor/role model. Teach your kids to approach the world with a problem solving mentality.
Take your kids with you on spiritual journies. Let them see you pray, study the Word, and live for Jesus!!!

Eeeeeek Farida's comment on What DDK said is exactly what I could write

Eeeeeek
Farida’s comment on What DDK said is exactly what I could write

Let them learn how to pray from watching and hearing you. Not everytime Telemundo and Africa Magic or TRACE!!!

Stop joking dear woman!!! The devil you are not paying attention to is paying MAJOR attention to you.

(that’s from DDK anyways I dunno why I added it here but, HERE, you can have it)
Brainwash your kids with the Word from a young age.
Teach them values, life skills, marriage, relationships, etc.
Train them to discern so they don’t marry wrong. Let your marriage be THE blueprint for them. The stuff I put into my kids is the stuff they produce. Use the creative power of my words to frame it all together.
Keep laying hands on them.
Keep prophesying.
You, my darling are a Prophet!!!

Oh this next point chilled me, and then pumped me.

She said the reason some of us are not running to our parents a lot is that they are not mentor figures to us. We just grew up. We were not RAISED!!!
There’s nothing really to learn from them. (and that’s not a reason to not visit ooo). You mama, have to live your life in such a way that generations after you can NOT forget you. You know how the Bible says ‘…one generation shall tell the next of YOUR faithfulness…’ ehen. Let one generation tell the next generation that there was an Eziaha who no one can stop talking about.

Your impact down generations should neither be denied or erased.
You are a trailblazer, woman!!!
Be a TRAILBLAZER!!!

IMG_20160419_210551
Let your kids arise and call you BLESSED!!! Please give your ALL in raising your kids, and that involves birthing the other dreams God has given you. Do it for your generation. Any battle you do not win, you will transfer. Let some nonsense STOP in your lineage because of you and your prayers.

Amen!!!

Until you begin to do that, you are ORDINARY!!!

images.jpeg
Lemme just round up this post with this
Mama, you are LIMITLESS!!!
See ehn, raising kids is awesome. I actually believe it is my primary responsibility. Primary, but NOT only!!! You don’t wanna conquer ‘out there’ and fail as a mom.

You also don’t wanna be a WIFE and MOM and NOTHING else!!!

Lisa Bevere and Christine, on the platform of ‘Propel Women’ talk about the ‘Emerging woman’ a lot. God wants an emerging of a woman whose life is INTEGRATED. Whole!!! It is NOT an either-or, it is a BOTH thing. A woman who wants her life to count for something beyond her!!!

Something for the benefit of mankind!!! These women understand SEASONS in life.

images-2.jpeg

I talked about my seasons here too. I had my FT stay-at-home mama season and frankly, what God did for me then was building capacity!!! What I thought was a low-output season was a ‘root deepening’ season. And maybe a season of REST too like my bestie Valerie told me on Sunday when I told her I was tired and all. As a woman, you need to be UNSTUCK, be able to maximise each season and then MOVE gracefully from one season to the next as God leads you.

Unstuck!!! Easily my fave PropelWomen quote

Unstuck!!! Easily my fave PropelWomen quote

If all you are doing now screams ‘low productivity’, I promise you, with the help of the Holy Spirit, you can make that season work for you and prepare you for the next season. But if you let your life be encumbered with Africa Magic and Telemundo, you can NOT hear God.
See this Propel woman, Alli Worthington, she’s easily my favourite on the Panel.

dqw3xyehbauhy7cd7_hnqu2hrcvnzeohu84aaur1xl9exbtwzp0fjoqsbbity_tqgjbq2cxp2ayt85j6mdscq-9lcvqd2nfranibrsl_oxcdyhp2kr9zcokjp1gqcygafktmf8ffsq0oyr24hklbzfy5rmhnvww300-h262-nc.jpeg.jpeg

Years and years and years (over 10years) as a FT mom, raising 5 boys (she said her and her husband were just ‘enjoying themselves’ and wham!!! 5boys!!!) but today, she’s Exec Director at PropelWomen, Author, Speaker, Entrepreneur etc and she did NOT stop being a wife and mom as she took on these other responsibilities BUT instead being a stay-at-home MOM enriched her life in such a way that as that season morphed into another, she took lessons from there and is doing a MOST brilliant job in this season and inspiring loads of women around the world including ME!!!

img_20160418_020148.png
Like DDK said, children are a gift from God. They should ENHANCE and NOT hinder the call of God on your life!!!

img_20160418_020214.png
And still on DDK, let me quote something she said at Warrior in Heels…
There is something about a woman who takes EVERY season of her life as a GOD-ORDAINED season!!!
#Selah

One of you who came for Warrior in heels should transcribe na. Epp us. Haha. I’m still amazed by DDK. I’m reading one of her books THE SCRIPT and what it is doing to me is beyond Words.
Please don’t despise any season. God can work with anything if we give it to HIM!!! Like Alli said, take care of what’s in front of you right now faithfully. God has a plan!!! Follow it and not the world’s. He will take you into your next season soon enough.
Honey, you can do MORE than birthing kids. You can BIRTH much more!!!
And this is a good place to end ‘…what Pastor Dotun said…’
And the final speaker was Nneka Kyari!!!

img_20160418_020015.png

Soft spoken and yet deeeeeeepppp!!! A woman who took a season of her life by the lapels, fought the battle against infertility, won it, and morphed into another season and is liberating lots of other women!!!

41veu5bik7l._sl1500_.jpg
Eeeeeeeek!!! Nneka was my fave because she taught me something I will NEVER forget.
That post is READY too!!! Come back tomorrow!!!
Plus I have a BIG announcement at the end of Part 3.
Think… download, use for 30days, repeat, share… I can’t wait to birth that!!! Anybody wanna guess???
I’m excited!!!

img_20160418_015849.png
I’m running after everything God has called me to. Not holding back!!! And carrying as much people as I can with me.

#NoTime

See you soooooooooooon!!!
Love,
E’

#PropheticMotherhood… What DDK said

God has blown me away in recent times. I woke early Sunday morning and as I thought about the previous week and all that had happened to and with me, God used a Twitter scenario to drive it home…

IMG_20160419_041051

So I was having this convo with Kuchi and QYM on Twitter and I said #GroupHug as I ended the convo. Kachi, a friend from Uni who runs this AWESOME blog http://www.kacheetee.com had sort of been entering my lane recently, jumps into the Twitter trail and says she’s forcing herself right into the hug. And instantly, my spirit opened up to receive her into the hug. If it was real life, I would have eased her right into it without her having to force.

And God told me that He was just opening Himself up more to me because I had jumped right into the middle of what He’s doing in this season!!!

img_20160418_020604.png

And I pray you understand what that means and how it can be applied to our walk with God so

#Selah!!!

Now let’s just jump right into what happened at Prophetic Motherhood.

img_20160409_202624.jpg

If I keep all that to myself, it will be absolutely WICKED!!!

I definitely learned plenty

img_20160418_020256.png

I want to get the same faith and fire into as many women as possible. Plus it looks like I entered this wahala myself with all my publicity. Every single chick wanted me to share what went down there. So that’s why I’m doing this since I can’t keep up individually with everyone.

We’ll do this in FOUR parts. Yes it was THAT GOOOOD!!!

Let’s start with what DDK said at #PropheticMotherhood… Infused with some E’ flavour.

Disclaimer: I can’t capture it all. Impossible. I’ll share what I can.

 

So what is Prophetic Motherhood?

img_20160418_020407.png

Prophetic motherhood is living on the fast lane of the Holy Spirit, knowing EXACTLY and doing ONLY what God wants me to do. Downloading accurate and precise directions for life concerning my seedsssssssss. (definition of seed coming up later).

It is when you restrain the forces of evil so that in your case and on your watch, ONLY that which God has said concerning your seed comes to pass.

img_20160418_020639.png

It is staying on my knees until I see in the physical all that God has told me in my spirit. You have to pray mama. What is keeping you awake to breastfeed better be strong enough to keep you awake to PRAY, and in tongues too. I mean, moms know that if your baby wants you awake, up and pacing at 2am, you go do am. So you better be up and pacing in prayers too because YOU CAN!!! (plus the devil is not playing with you. What is confronting us is SERIOUS BUSINESS)

img_20160418_020228.png

The physical demands of being a woman can weaken you but you must pray to God to strengthen you because you MUST find the energy to pray ooo. Love how the Bible says the Proverbs 31 woman ‘her hands are strengthened for the work…’ #NoTimeForLazinessOrWeakness

It is praying the Holy Spirit conditions my approach and regulates my heart as I raise my kids so that I am not led by my emotions. I can’t always be on a short fuse and always lashing out at my kids. As a woman, I have to express tenderness as I raise my kids and not be emotional. I must know the uniqueness of each child’s personality and receive wisdom to raise them as such.

It is understanding that the seed born of me will be OF GOD just as it was told Mary. And seed is not limited to children alone. It includes businesses, career, ministry, etc. So concerning the sector of the economy God is leading me to, I am LORD and KING and I take control for Jesus!!!

Prophetic Motherhood is understanding that there is a child within my husband and it is my job to call forth the greatness in him too.

There is nothing as powerful as a praying woman. What will be the strongest memories your kids will have of you? A praying mom? A wimpy weak or a crying mom?

img_20160418_020204.png

My #mommygoals should be that I’m my kids’ first role model in everything… career/ministry, marriage, relationship with God, etc. All round, I’m my kids’ mentor. My kids must aspire to meet (and then surpass) the very high goals I am setting in life. I must live right before them from childhood.

Don’t let Disney Junior and Nickolodeon raise your kids. You need to download from heaven the blueprint to raise each one of them.

We should make our kids givers from a young age. Tithe from their money. Give them prophetic pledges to give (to Pastors and Fathers). They too can enjoy the blessings and rewards that come from giving directly

The moment when your kids sleep at night is critical. When the world around is quiet, their spirit is very sensitive so that is a good time to put your hands on their chest/head and start to speak LIFE into their spirit.

Pray that you receive favor with their caregivers ie nannies, homehelps, teachers in school and church, etc. Mama, you cannot be everywhere, even if you are a FT stay at home mom. You need to overtake their caregivers by the Spirit to be full of love, wisdom and faith- unable to do them harm!!!

You know DDK granted this interview January last year http://virtuedigest.com/debola-deji-kurunmi-believe-woman-can/ and something struck me there when she said she is not afraid or thinking funny thoughts about her kids when she goes out for ministrations. I mean, she is free to pursue other seeds God has helped her birth.

I know people who fear is the reason there don’t want to get help. You need to take control of these things in the spirit ooo. Because there is more to you than being a mommy and so you need HELP and I will dwell on that when I get to What Pastor Dotun Arifalo said.

There was something Pastor M told me when I was looking for a help. Infact, she commented on a post sef she didn’t tell me directly.

image

But we all know your Pastor’s comment is a prophesy, prayer and vision rolled into one. I started declaring it ooo. That my ‘help’ comes from the Lord. You see Nkechi, she is a help from God. My life CHANGED when she got in. At the same time God was changing my season, He was preparing a Help for me to ensure that I could RUN with the vision in this next season.

No way!!!

No absolute way I would be HALF as productive without help. My dear, it takes a VILLAGE literally, to raise a child. So dear mama, give your absolute BEST and then capture Caregivers in the spirit to do their absolute BEST too. That prayer point hit all the right notes in my spirit.

OK and the final thing I wanna share resonated especially for me who is a ‘married but living single most times mama’. Haha (Not for too long anymore tho)

Do not underestimate the role of fathers. No mama, your own prayer is NOT enough. We also need the Fathers. There is an order and plan with God and so there is a place for the Father’s blessing. So if your hubby is not around, you better call him, put the phone on speaker and have him pray over the child both of you made ok? Trust me, I’ve already started biko. Every night or day, my baby daddy is gonna be praying over the phone and speaking the father’s blessing over him. Lemme carry the one I am wired to carry and not do overload biko.

And speaking of baby making, DDK ordered us to go and release the tigeress in us in the bedrooms. Our kids need to stop sleeping in our beds right in the middle of both of you so that we can ‘lambano’ what is ours at anytime.
image

(Oya baby, hurry home. Lol)

Gosh, I LOVE DDK!!!

image

Hawt us!!! (Well according to DDK)

I mean, that’s part of prophetic motherhood ooo. She spoke of REDHOT, something her ministry is birthing soon and it will focus on basically heating up the bedroom!!!

Bring. It. On. Mama!!!

All the abstinence somebody did before marriage has to be compensated for IN MARRIAGE biko!!!

Oh plus there is a Deborah Initiative for women (that’s her Ministry name) retreat in Abuja in June. Trust me, I’ll get details and blow it up on my blog.

OK one last thing she said I wanna share is this

Children are a BLESSING/GIFT from God. They should ENHANCE the others gifts and callings of God on your life and NOT HINDER it.

Phew.
image

I could do a 30day devotional on this line alone using my life. That was exactly my point in this post. KingDaveed has definitely enhanced my life.
image

There’s so much more she said and since I can’t capture it all, I’ll just stop here and jump right into ‘…what Pastor Dotun Arifalo said…’ and my people, that’s a TORNADO coming!!!

image

The Post is ready!!! Come back tomorrow!!! Plus I may be sharing a story about this hug tomorrow.
image

May!!!

I love you guys. Sooooooooo much.

Let’s make Jesus proud TOGETHER!!!

FAB Christian Biz Principles 101…

I know what you are thinking. Like, didn’t this Chick just start her business 3.5seconds ago? Bedtime (1)

Where does she get off sharing Christian Business principles already???

The Nerve!!!

Hahahaha. I really dunno too. God just has a way of setting me up.

screenshot_2016-04-15-16-02-08.png

No really. Steph is a prophet

He has a sense of humour so Indulge me…
So like yawl know, SavedFitnFAB opened up for business on Monday the 13th, well Tuesday technically and you don’t wanna know how many Clients we have today.

My. God. Is. Awesome!!!
Something you also don’t know is that I was sooooo scared to venture out. It took the heavens opening, God winking, Angel Gabriel waving, Joyce Meyer scolding, Chris Caine screaming, Pastor M prophesying, a few friends harassing (hello Steph, Priceless, and Vee) and 24 white doves singing hallelujah for me to step out and do this post that heralded #SavedFitnFAB

PhotoGrid_1460708556393

Most of you think you know me but you don’t. Lemme tell you this. All my life, I have stretched myself to make a success of everything I touch. I hate failure. Or maybe I’m afraid of failure and hunnay, that’s a terrible thing!!! Yes I have stretched, pushed and have made a success out of most things I touch. But guess what? They have all been within a relative comfort zone. I have pushed the very boundaries of my comfort zone but hardly ever left it.

I have ‘go-getted’ plenty but within my comfort zone.
Starting a business like #SavedFitnFAB is wayyyyyyy out of my comfort zone. I didn’t wanna charge anybody for anything especially using my blog as platform.
You see, the sanctity of my blog is important to me. God had told me 2years ago that ‘your money is in your blog’ but I didn’t know HOW He meant it. But I protect my blog and all it stands for. I didn’t wanna even think of doing anything ‘money’ on or from it.

The full chat further down

The full chat further down

I thought helping for free was the CHRISTIAN thing to do on my blog. I mean, we should not be MONEY MINDED as believers abi? Leave that for the world going to hell.
Kai, devil had me warped.
So when I felt God pull me to monetise right after the first free one, I resisted. I thought lemme do a second free first. Yawl know how we negotiate with God.
Err, Wrong move!!!
Then all the frustrations began. Almost everyone in the second group had an ‘ish’. 2days in, major frustrated, I heard God clearly again…
I’m not in this. You don’t have the grace anymore to do this for free. Step out baby. Monetise and i will BLESS it.
Then a friend, Ru came to visit. I hinted her and she said
‘…Eziaha, if God told me to stop something, as I’m talking to you, the group would have been closed…’
Hian!!! You would think i’d know better.
The next morning, I was very troubled. I had given my word to these ladies. I wanted to do it. But I wanted to obey God more. I spoke to my bestie Dumebi and she said to shut down. Ditto Priceless.

I did.

I apologised to the Chicks, told them I would give them a discount if they came on board the next, and I shut down.

Then I told Pastor M…

screenshot_2016-04-12-16-42-27.png
And let’s just begin these Christian business Principles at this point before I move from business  Principles to an auto-biography.

1. Let God lead you. Not Money.
Money is good but Purpose is best.

bcx7hkppmvb.jpg
Pursue purpose and watch money chase you. There is something SPECIFIC God wants you to do so He can have something to bless. SavedFitnFAB is just ONE of the money making ideas God has given me but He made this my FIRST, the one I’m most uncomfy with, so I could kick fear. And God explained to me that THIS, using my blog as platform for it all, was EXACTLY what He meant when He told me ‘…Eziaha, your money is in your blog’

My writing is such a GIFT!!!

My writing is such a GIFT!!!

2. Get a WORD and your confessions!!!
If number 1 is in place, you will have a Word. And then you will continue to war with that WORD until it is flesh. Tangible.
Don’t even go anywhere without a WORD!!! I’ll share a bit of mine at the end.

3. Identify your Prophets
Pastor M had given me a Word earlier on monetising what she sensed what a gift. No pressures. She just said it. Then that day I shut the group down and told her, she goes ahead and prophesies again. What she told me was sooooo deep I was discombobulated at first. I didn’t know if it was in the Bible, if it was The Message, a quote, etc. Then when I gathered myself, I wrote it down. It was a WORD for me from heaven!!!
Pastor Debola Deji-Kurunmi was another prophet.

She may have thought she was preaching to everyone at WarriorInHeels but it was one look I took at Debola’s Twitter profile before the program and I had a baby-in-the-womb-leaping moment.

She is a FT minister, FT wife and mom and she has her businesses. Ah!!! Then she dropped a line the entire church may have missed somewhere towards the end of her sermon.

‘…Apostles in the marketplace…’

End of story!!!
My darling husband. Oh as I shared with him all God pushing me to do, he had on this coy smile and then he reminded me what God had told him about my future back then as my Pastor in Winners Campus fellowship, UI, even before we started dating. beautyplus_20150628211526_save_edit.jpg

He said

‘…Global figure baby. That’s what God said you will be. I’m happy to see it coming to pass with all this…’
Christine Caine’s PropelWoman

Chick beside Chris is Nigerian. She's awesome!!!

Chick beside Chris is Nigerian. She’s awesome!!!

Ah!!! I got one of the curriculums and God blew me away with it. Jeez!!! I saw a panel of Christian women in the marketplace talking about being full on for Jesus whilst ‘in the world but not of it…’

4. Identify your cheerleaders
Stephanie Obi. She pushed me.

Lol at hallelujah when I told her I was going premium

Lol at hallelujah when I told her I was going premium

Maybe a little too hard but i’m thankful she did. And that screen shot above on teaching Christian business principles? That is right. God used her to inspire the direction of this post when she said that. Thanks babe.
SisiYemmie. Gosh, we hadn’t even chatted in a while but that morning, she just entered my lane and on BBM, she said some words to me.

img_20160415_141905.jpg

Ah!!!
Ru.

I don’t even believe how God used her. She just made me believe I was born to be all that and more.
Vee. Dumebi. Sapphire. Priceless. Ayo. All my besties. All of them. Awesome lot. The moment the post got out, they all start calling excitedly as if it was my birthday. Gosh!!! How did I get so blessed!?!?! On BBM too. Several friends shared my DP, reposted on FB and Twitter, told their colleagues, gave my number, shared my links.Ah!!! They also prayed for and encouraged me.

Gosh, you need your cheerleaders. You need them. And I guess you get cheerleaders yourself by being one for others when occasion demands. (and that’s a word for someone today)

5. Know your worth. Charge your worth

img_20160411_210622.jpg

At whatever level you are at.
Just consult with the Holy Spirit and not your emotions. Charge your worth and don’t apologise for it. Your aim should be to obey God and not please everyone.

Newsflash: No matter how high or low, people will complain so….

6. Know your HARVEST!!!

PhotoGrid_1460617760707
No honey, you ain’t sent to everyone. There are specific people you are sent to and when they meet you, they won’t complain, or make you explain yourself like a school kid. They will be super duper excited to patronise you. They can’t wait to work with you. They will harass you for account number. They will hurriedly pay you. They will say thank you. They will say God bless you. Those ones are your harvest. They are paying for it but they will be happy to. God personally blew me away with this one point.

images(6)
Christine had this workshop recently where you could pay to attend and have her share from 10am to 4pm. An intimate meeting of sorts. You could ask personal questions and all. It was about N110k in naira. It sold out in hours and no one on the waiting list got a chance later. No she didn’t say this. I stalked, connected the dots and got this info. While some people were complaining it was expensive, the harvest had cleared it out.
Focus on your harvest and don’t even vex at all or argue or explain when anyone says otherwise. You don’t have time for that. God told me to just say to myself ‘…hallelujah, she is NOT my harvest…’ Then stay believing for my own harvest. And no, your friends, your circle, the people who promised you before you started, your neighbours, your church members, etc, they might NOT be your harvest!!! Focus!!!

7. No Competition drama

zcamera-20160409_052943.jpg
Of course you can NOT be the only person in the business so don’t even disturb yourself about others no matter what. God told me ‘…Eziaha, the harvest is PLENTY. I still don’t have enough labourers…’ So make friends with your colleagues jor. We are CO-LABOURERS NOT RIVALS

8. Pay the Price…
Especially the early days. I have had to sacrifice a lot. Even hubs had to let me be for sometime because I had to get some things up and running. I had research to do, proposals to write, publicity to do, skills to acquire, late nights to keep, all-nighters to pull, online courses to start and complete, etc. In order to get these done, somethings would give. There was even this 3days straight I didn’t watch Joyce or Chris.

cb22a_-ZJwpoAGELjjghShQYwfyiNNqvM7bcvVjztCFlkHApthKmtzcj39f0XCefr1EC0Z_NF89o5G2oFh6GCrzov7EbQTXwRwJoGrcmhxsPRuFLXsMOjV5M-7xTp0S5nCyaQE_MkKCr_U-QuFvm=w236-h236-nc

That’s a miracle. Haha. You can’t slack because you can speak in tongues. You speak in tongues so that you can do fruitful targeted work. Diligence baby, diligence.

9. Have a Kingdom mindset.

Baby at 6months and 1year

Baby at 6months and 1year

I believe Christians who own businesses should always realise that it is not just about US. It is about the kingdom. Putting this always in front of us changes how and why we play the game. Never been more excited at my first fruit. Never been more excited to partner with Joyce Meyer Ministries and A21. Never been more excited to sow consistently in 6figures. There are 2/3 Chicks I am looking to employ to work from home. I love what they do for God and I would love to empower them. My targets are beyond me. So yes, my desire to change my wardrobe and buy another car is legit and will be met through my businesses because a workman deserves his luxuries, but I can’t afford to be distracted from the goal… THE KINGDOM!!! And His people. And since God is looking at your heart, honey He will bless you if your heart is right and your business is steeped in HIS purpose.

10. Genuinely LOVE your clients.
I’m not even kidding, I’m on my face for some people. I’m like God before this is over with me, let this Chick have XXX testimony. I confess that my Clients discover purpose as they work with us. SFnF lets me deal with these Chicks directly and a bit intimately so empathy is a part of the package. You would also wanna do your best when it is done from a heart of love.

Let. Love. Lead.

11. Don’t wait till you are ready…
You will absolutely never ever ever be fully ready. Have faith in God, not in your plans (Thank you Pastor M) Step out in faith baby. I did. And I have grown in just these 3days cos some emails and mealplans have brought requests that have thrown me off. No matter how I prepared, I would never have thought of these. But then, I pray, God gives ideas and we work something out.

12. Your fears!!! They will never ever be valid!!!
I was afraid.

But i stepped out

In one day, I amazed myself. Sitting on my bed ooo. . That’s the kinda alert that’s sweetest. And that’s how we have been rolling ooo. I even have my first celebrity client. Yaaaaay.
Priscilla Shirer said if she has two decisions to make and fear is standing in the way of Choice A, she knows that’s EXACTLY what God wants her to do hence the devil clouding it with fear. Your fears, they are from the father of lies in whom there is no truth at all and so they are a LIE!!! A big fat-nosed rotten LIE!!!

And my bonus point, which is me repeating point 2. Have a Word and war with it.
Lemme share a story I heard mama Joyce say. So her book ‘Love Revolution’ releases and she gets a call from the Publishers that it ain’t doing too well. Actually it was doing poorly. You see, Joyce is a results driven person. You actually begin to doubt the call on your life when that sorta thing happens. Now she said she could have sat down and just sulked ‘oh people don’t like me anymore. They don’t wanna read me. Maybe I don’t write well anymore. Am I coming to the end? Etc’
But nah, mama said she got out her scriptures and wrote it all out. And then she would lock her office morning, noon and night and go to war with them, confessing out loud how her every book is a best seller and so on.

She said 4days in, she got another call. Her book had moved up to be Number 4 on the New York times bestsellers list
Pooooooooow!!! 4days only!!!
Honey, do what you can do(diligence), then let God do what you cannot (prayers)
I have a couple of scriptures and confession for my businesses I wanna share with you. Actually just three. No scripture is of private interpretation so feel free to use too if you are a Christian in business.
Numbers 11:31
A wind set in motion by God Himself is released into all the world and is bringing my ‘harvest’ my way… (I believe this ‘wind’ is the Holy Spirit.) Heaven’s own PA system is sounding for us. (I have 3 clients from outside Naija already. Whoop!!!)
Matt 13:39
Reaper Angels are bringing my harvests to me. Angels are my harvest workers. They make sure not one of my harvest passes us by.
1Thess 1:9
News about my businesses is spreading everywhere. People are telling everyone. Everywhere people are talking about us. Before I say a Word, people say ‘oh I know you Eziaha, you run that FAB blog eziaha.com and you do all those awesome social media businesses…’

My Eziaha (good reputation) precedes me.
And because all my businesses are powered online, I am constantly pleading the blood of Jesus and speaking to my devices and Internet that they work perfectly and all the plans of the enemy, through virus and all is destroyed. This was something hubs brought to my attention.
Morning, noon and night, I’m warring. Why? Cos the devil will come after me big time because I’m not just a business woman BUT an Apostle in the Marketplace.
Eeeeeeeeeeeeeek!!!
And Pastor Debola, I know you will read this so here’s my I love you… and Pastor M, thank you sooooo much mama.
So are you afraid??

Fear is your cue that you were born to do this baby. God’s got ya. Just. Do. It.
I think I’m ready for my first Christian business seminar for start ups… Who’s calling? Haha.
And yup, spread word to anyone you think needs my services please, and support my business.

I feel like running down there RIGHT NOW!!! Gosh!!! Re-read that ine

 

Warrior. Mom. #PropheticMotherhood

Hey guys. I’m back!!!

Three POWERFUL posts in 2days!!! Catch up
https://eziaha.com/2016/04/09/support-growing-businesses-part-2/

https://eziaha.com/2016/04/08/purpose-seasons-and-a-giantslayer-turns-one/
Anybody giving cash rewards???

Anyways, I’m back and this time I’m tumblin’ flippin’ excited!!!

Now let me tell you a bit about KingDaveed. Not only is he strong, that lil’ man is STRONG-WILLED!!!

image

If not that I had heard Pastor M talk about recognising strong leadership qualities in your child and honing those skills in the way of God, I just may have been throwing the S word around.

STUBBORN!!!

And wrong labelling often provokes wrong reaction to the kid and you will just be breaking a child’s spirit. 

image

Somedays, I’m plain overwhelmed. I look at KingDaveed and I’m like ‘…help me God. Help us God to raise Him in your ways. I’m just bland maimai without your help Lord…’

Pushes me to prayers. Pushes me to frame, edit and re-edit his confessions, my favourite two lines being ‘KingDaveed, you have strong leadership qualities with which you lead people to Jesus…’ and ‘KingDaveed, your spirit is tender to the things of God, you love the house of God and you are a big time Kingdom financier’.
Pushes me to hold his head every once in a while and lebrozokalibrahandalaye

image

Some days, I wonder what KingDaveed will be in the future. Frankly, I spent 6years post secondary school pursuing a Pharmacy degree for my parents that ended in chaos with me ultimately being withdrawn. See story here https://eziaha.com/2013/06/26/in-the-same-place/ and one day I will have the guts to publish the full UNCUT story!!! *exhale*

I don’t have time to waste KingDaveed’s time pursuing anything less than God’s intended for him.
No, ain’t noborry got time fo’ tha’.

image

I desperately want him to discover purpose on time and RUN with it passionately.

I learned something from Heather Lindsey. She said they set aside a PURPOSE FUND for Logan and not the more popular college fund. That’s cause she is aware that it is possible God’s purpose for Logan may not involve college/university. It could be ANYTHING and whatever God calls him to do, they will use his purpose fund to fund it and not just haul him off to college and run up unnecessary bills. I mean if God has called him into music, any need going to waste four years studying Political science first? Shouldn’t he just go to the best music school in the world straight up?

image

You see, that’s the kinda parenting we want for Bro KingDaveed (side eye Rukevwe).

image

But this kinda future does not come about by just giving him this powerful name. It will come as we get on our faces before God, and continue to pray for him. And not just him, THEM!!! 

image

Isn't that face to LIVE&PRAY for... Gosh!!!

KingDaveed and my future twin girls (who I have named after the two most influential women in my life. Guesses anyone?). Gosh, we cannot afford to fall asleep on the wheels. We can’t afford to be distracted with summer vacations and baby photo shoots while the main thing gets relegated.

image

I don’t want ‘prayer points’ over my kids in the future. I want my kids even more obsessed about Jesus than we are. I have seen firsthand, terrible parenting and it’s effects on kids. No, not on my watch!!! Not my kids. 

image

When I did that post on Purpose, Seasons and a GiantSlayer turns one, https://eziaha.com/2016/04/08/purpose-seasons-and-a-giantslayer-turns-one/ I got quite some messages from moms like me and even moms-to-be. Just, *sigh* messages. Don’t let me qualify the theme of most messages.

image

One thing tho, it is NOT too late to rise and fill our positions. No matter the story today, we can start to write a better story by standing up and in that gap for them. Labouring in prayers (and downloading from heaven) until Christ is etched in them. 

image

Which is why when I bumped into this on DDK’s page (my new unaware bestie), my spirit leaped!!! Jesus knows I need this. Even Angel Gabriel knows. I dunno if that post made me look like I have it all together but hunnay, I do NOT!!! There is always a MORE to enter and complacency (like comparison) is a game of fools. I believe so much in the power of prayers. Corporate prayers.

image

I’m looking forward to it. I’ve invited almost every mom-friend I know. I’m still inviting. That’s why I’m blogging this too. So I can reach more women. Moms, moms-to-be, moms-in-waiting, this is for EVERY WOMAN!!! 

image

Now listen…

I do NOT care what LIE the devil has told you…

I could NOT care less what the situation is today with your kid(s)…

There is a GOOD God in heaven and my Bible says there is NOTHING He cannot do. I mean, where there are moms to pray, there is a God to answer. If God gave you those babies, then mama, you are WELL ABLE!!! Come let’s fortify together!!! FOR. OUR. KIDS. 

image

Just throwing this tip out there- 

Come with a journal and pen. Don’t let any scripture, RHEMA, prayer point or Word pass your journal by. Don’t worry, it may not all make sense immediately, but when you go home and make a college course of it as you study and personalise it to the peculiarity of your kids, you would realise what perfect picture you would have painted, with nothing short of heavenly strokes!!!

Eeeeeek!!! I’m bursting excited, can you tell?

I’m even waxing poetic, and I HATE poems lol. 

image

I’m going to sleep. I’m deprived!!! Damn you Caffeine!!! And see yawl on Saturday 16th. 

image

Btw all those screenshots are off DDK’s Facebook page https://mobile.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10153956887213796&id=617723795&set=a.218589603795.132414.617723795&source=48

image

OK if that is not making it, I don’t know what is. Haha. I’m pretty obsessed with my name Eziaha and this is such an honour Eujay.

image

See the bump?

Such an honor!!! I know you can’t come for this but honey, i’ma be standing in the gap for you and your kids plus my God daughter too. Can’t wait to meet her. 

Oh and someone on this blog too named her son after my son, KingDaveed!!! I backflipped!!! No seriously!!! This is awesome.

image

Err, we must be doing something right, all to the glory of God!!! Amen!!!

PPS
