my journey with God

My journey with God started a short while before I resumed college. I was at home this precious day and I availed myself the opportunity of reading motivational books. The first book I laid my hands on was this book by Zig Ziglar titled ‘’Tough times never last but tough people do’’.

I passionately devoured that book as reading was and is still one of my hobbies. I wasn’t happy when I finished reading the book because I did not have access to a library or book club where I could easily get a book to read.

Who am I ?

So I had finish reading the book and I sat on my bed thinking about life. Yes, I mean I was thinking about life. I am a quiet lady who does a lot of her talking in her mind.

Who am I

I thought about the past (growing up),about the present and  the new world of college I was about to enter into. Many questions flooded my mind. The most daunting of all the thought was that of going into college; meeting with so many people from different backgrounds, ideologies and all.

At that point, I knew I needed help. I grew up a quiet girl who loves and clings to her mum a lot. My mum was my safe zone. A hiding/safe place for me. The world(school) was too busy for my liking.😊

Back in school, I loved it when it is quiet and sane. Once it get noisy and tense I leave the scene, either physically or in my thoughts.

This was how I did it; once it gets noisy in the classroom, when the girls and boys are shouting and playing, I log out and retire into my thoughts of the beautiful future I dream of every moment.

It was an interesting thing for me.

My Dreams and Aspirations.

I dreamt of being an influential, wealthy, beautiful and independent woman. As a young girl, I did not know what it meant to be married, so having a husband wasn’t part of my dream.

Dreams

Whenever it gets noisy on the outside, I retire into my lovely and beautiful aspirations. I would see myself beautiful and neatly dressed, with my high heels, very long, well and neatly packed hair, sleek face beat, standing on a podium and addressing people mostly (women) don’t know why.

As time went by, I built on my dream of my future and it became bigger.

My Journey with God Started

With all the thoughts in my mind, I suddenly paused (didn’t know why) and I heard this question right there in my mind;

“Olabisi (that is my name), from everything you have heard and seen about God, don’t you think you should give Him a chance in your life?”

I replied “really?’’

And I heard clearly “Yes”.

So, I knelt down by my bed side and said:

“God, I have heard, seen and read so much about you, I ask that you forgive my sins, I ask that you come into my life and be my Lord. I hope I won’t get to a point in this new life with you where I would ask; is this everything there is to been a child of God, so what’s next?”

And I heard Phillipians 1:6.

I opened my bible and checked it out. It reads:

Being confident of this very thing, that he which has begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.”  KJV

Hence, began my journey with God.

    Long time reader, first time commenter — so, thought I’d drop a
    comment.. — and at the same time ask for a favor.

    Your wordpress site is very simplistic – hope you don’t mind me
    asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it?
    :P)

    I just launched my small businesses site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!)
    the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback)

    Keep up the good work– and take care of yourself
    during the coronavirus scare!

    Hi, I do believe your site could be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues.
    I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that,
    fantastic website!

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the
    structure of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    May I simply just say what a comfort to uncover somebody that really knows what they are discussing on the web. You actually realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to look at this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised you aren’t more popular since you definitely have the gift.

    At this time it looks like Movable Type is the preferred blogging platform out there right now.
