Wow! What a year! My greatest lesson this year was obedience. Obedience in love, Obedience in faith, Obedience in long suffering, Obedience, Obedience, and more Obedience. And one thing I can say about Obedience is that it is HARD. 😂
Every post I had this year both on the blog and on youtube was either from something I battled with or straight from a teaching by Abba himself. So when I post these things I am not saying I am better or I have attained or I am perfect. I am simply obeying and sharing what I have been taught. Lol sometimes I still fall in the things I point out but the good thing about been a teacher of the word is you are reminded that you have taught someone about it and so you cannot be an hypocrite. Sometimes I don’t even want to post some blogposts. But Obedience is there looking at me like. Aunty don’t you dare! 🌚
Lol I can also say this was one unstable spiritual year, because I had so many ups and downs, I had times when I was high on the word and then times when I didn’t feel like praying or reading my bible. I had times when the devil attacked with depression, evil and carnal thoughts, I also battled with FLESH a lot in terms of subjecting my wants for what God wants, in terms of obedience, in terms of forgiveness, in terms of worship. So I shed alot of flesh this year! It wasn’t easy at all but God was there through it all teaching me obedience in trust. Trusting what the word says about me and believing it. In the process of believing, Obedience was required. And in the tears and struggle with the flesh. I started becoming, growing, obeying…
Here’s a personal testimony;
So recently I won a voucher for a dinner date for two from Taxify on twitter and although I already planned in my head who to take so I can make a video for my youtube channel, because well that’s what flesh would do, God had something else in mind. While I was speaking to God in my quiet time, I asked Abba who to take, because too many people have asked that I take them as my date 😭 and I didn’t know who to ask but Abba. And the response was the shock of my life. He said I should give it out! Ahhhhh. My chestttt. I was heartbroken. 😩 What is life without argument? (haha) I argued small but I know it’s not the devil that gave me that idea because the devil would never want me to bless someone else neither was it “me” because I definitely did not want to give out that voucher. Lol. So yes. I knew it was God.
Honestly I am actually now relieved because I was becoming too concerned with the date, what to wear and who to take, blah blah. I thought of gifting one of my friends who had asked but He said no. So it’s not that I am a nice person, 😂 to be very honest, the natural man is not nice. It’s the love of Christ that compels us.
Remember what I said about Obedience? HARD. Yep.
I had also planned to gift the book “Dear Diary” by Itunu Taiwo (which I reviewed on the blog here) earlier but I shoved it off but this was the confirmation I needed so I’ve decided to do it now because the book blessed me so much and I would love everyone to read it.
On that note, I would be doing a giveaway!!!! Whooooopppp!!! Tell a friend to tell another friend. If you’re interested in the giveaway please signify why you should win the giveaway in the comment section. Also comment with your IG and twitter handle.
P.S If you’re my friend, please note that I won’t be partial for you 😂
