Hello everyone, It’s a cold day here in Dublin, but I’m happy and grateful for life, despite being a little more tired than usual for a Tuesday. Today I have a song to share. It’s not a new song, and I’ve heard it quite a few times, but this afternoon, as I was thinking and asking God for grace over all aspects of my life, the song took on a new depth for me. The song is called My World Needs You, by Kirk Franklin, and a few other artistes. I really hope someone is blessed by listening. 🙂 May God bless you all, and may all of us in desperate need of God’s help always remember that He is AN EVER present help in times of trouble, and actually at all times. ❤
This has been a most beautiful week. Easily one of the most beautiful weeks I’ve had in Dublin. I’ve made friends, whose company I truly enjoy; I’m getting a hang of my role at work, and I can find my way around this new city much easier than before. But it’s also been a most emotional week, the good emotions though. Joy, peace, gratitude, clarity of thought (is that an emotion?) Yesterday I went to see a movie with my friends at 10pm (don’t worry, my area is safe.) It wasn’t the wisest decision as we all had work the next day, but as one of my friends said, you only live once. Also tickets were only 8euros so it was a financially smart decision. On our way back, my friends and I (me and three guys) took pictures by the bridge, and generally made good cheer. I must have used the word “beautiful” at least a hundred times. The bridge was beautiful, as was the water, and the sky, and people, and life, and …
I don’t know what’s next, but whatever it is, I’m excited to walk in the rain with God. All I ask is for the grace and strength that I need. Pray with me, will you?
A few weeks ago, a friend of mine told me that from the things I said and what he’s observed, I feel closest to God when I’m writing. It’s true. Because I’m working in a creative space when I’m writing, I’m working in tandem with God, the greatest Creator and Creative of all time.
A little fun song to keep your motivation up!
When we pray, we empower ourselves because we know that we are absolutely nothing without God. But because we have God, we have all we need. When God shows us who He is in comparison to the tiny people we are, we understand that He is big and we can do all things with Him, including get our dream jobs.
When we try to make human sense of the instructions that come from God, we fall right flat on our faces because He never makes intellectual sense.
At the wedding in Cana, Mary preempted Jesus to work although He told her explicitly that His time had not come. I wonder how that came to be. Jesus’ public ministry began in essence, because His mother called forth His time.
Isn’t this an astonishing story?
A lovely Nigerian gospel medley easy like Tuesday afternoon?
Are you waiting upon God when you enter His presence? Are you giving Him the food that He enjoys eating? Are you being a bad waiter or a good waiter? God will give you a tip regardless, but will He want to shut down the restaurant just to enjoy your service?
