Welcome back to my blog!

Welcome back

Hello Everyone.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!HAPPY NEW MONTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s been a while. I’ve had issues with my last blog host which just made me abandon my blog and focus on my Youtube Channel. I am really sorry for those that tried to comment and had issues doing so and Thank you to everyone that reached out to me. I am really grateful.

Ever since I got married, I have been more cautious about sharing my life online mostly because MrO is a very private person and I try to respect the fact that he can’t seem to wrap his head around documenting your life just for people to watch for entertainment. We’ve since talked about it and I guess he is coming to terms with the fact that I am more inclined to share and I am also learning where to draw the line to know how much is too much.

That being said! I am back! 🙂

The past few years, I have been on a journey of learning and unlearning many things about God and his word I thought I knew, coupled with being married for 11 months, lets just say the learning has been through the roof. I’m quite an extremist when I learn a new thing that is different from what I knew example, if i learn something new based on God’s word that is contrary to what I think I know, I don’t just “try out” this new knowledge, I stop everything I know to do and understand this new knowledge then run with it – I just discovered this about myself-

That is the picture of the last new years. Unlearning, processing truth and learning. The unlearning process took about a year of which there are still things I am still unlearning *phew* So much baggage.

I started this blog about 6 years ago while on my Industrial attachment in a media house and just like my life, it has evolved from “Rebirth of a dramaqueen” -Without any drama where I was basically ranting about my new work-life, writing short stories about snippets of my life and seeks answers to questions I had about my walk with God to The foot of the Hill where I had evolved into a girl that just wanted to live the life that God had called her to, still with alot of baggage, questions and confusion. I am still evolving.

Which is why I am here again, a girl that just wants to be obedient to her master. I am learning, as a disciple of Christ, I am going to be living a counter cultural lifestyle. I am going against the norm of culture, society and religion. This blog is evolving with me into a lifestyle blog, I mean it literally my lifestyle as a disciple of Christ – by God’s grace –

What is the purpose of this blog you might ask?
To show the counter cultural lifestyle we have been called to as disciples of Christ according to God’s word
Challenge our status quo – Our cultural mould, societal mould and religious mould
Encourage and inspire one another to be obedient to God’s instructions
Encourage ourselves to unlearn and learn of God ourselves.
What would you be seeing?
Bible study! Plenty Bible study
Bible Living! Plenty Bible Living – By God’s grace
My marriage experience
Business experience working with my Husband – Photography
Videos
Discipleship Corner – Interview of other disciples of Christ/articles from disciples/videos/guest entries
Frequency;
In the time past, I have TRIED to put a schedule to my blog and it didn’t work. I put a schedule to my videos though and it worked for about 2 months. I don’t have a great track record with consistency (I am confessing now) Pray for me please. I would LOVE to have a schedule and I have a planner I am working with hopefully, that should help. However, till I can get that right, I will just post all the backlog of my writings in my journal and see how it goes from there.

My dream schedule though, Post atleast 3 times a week and 1 video every Friday for my youtube! Amen? Amen!!!!

That is it for the update on the blog. I will do a life update soon, so you all can know what has been up with me. How are you? I MISSED YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s the end of the first half of the year, how has it been for you all? Oya o. Talk to me!! 😉

P.S: I also put up a video today. If you want to see my face, check it out!!

    Okay, it’s better now. lool. Welcome back!!! Yay! We have another blessing adding to internet space. Hehe.
    I’m glad you’ve learned so much. The things we learn from God himself ehn. The infinite One. Sometimes I just keep wondering how much more there is to know of Him. Even Paul after many years in Ministry could still say ‘That I may know Him.’

    And so I’m like, “Ah, so we haven’t started yet…Lmao” It’s amazing really.

    For me personally, I don’t usually get it the first time and sometimes I’m scared. it’s not easy to jump from something familiar to the unfamiliar. And so He comes as a whisper. I don’t think God also comes ‘just like that’ when he’s drawing us close to Him. I believe it begins, little by little and like you mentioned evolution and then you just start fixing the pieces of the puzzle together till it finally crashes over you and you go ‘wow!” Look at what I’ve been missing. It’s a wonderful process of growth.

    At the same time, He’s also teaching me that though I may know somethings, Knowledge puffs up but love edifies. Be ready to learn and unlearn, be ready to see God manifest in different ways. Be flexible but TEST ALL SPIRITS. Don’t just discard them because you don’t think. Listen, brood, meditate, screen it through His word, speak to Him about it. Check the motive of the message bearer. Yes knowledge is good but there’s no point if it isn’t motivated by love. Love for God, love for the brethren. Not to prove anything but for Love’s sake. Love does not parade itself. 1Cor13 is my motto. Lol. Anytime I’m about to get carried away, 1 Cor13 comes and I calm down. lol.

    I remembered that your old blog. Your profile went something like Lover of Garri and some other stuff. I remembered those snippets of writing that you used it to intimidate us that time. And how you wanted to delve into writing and you bought one journal like that and wrote my pseudoname on it. Lol. And look at you now. Keep glowing and growing girlfriend! xo!

    P.S: Sorry for the long epistle. I had to give you a long welcome. Hugs.
