At some point in our lives
We must ask the question
Who am I?
The big thing about this is not the question itself
But the fact that, unlike other questions,
There are just so many, ready answers
The problem of identity crisis arises for this reason
Without asking, your parents, your experiences,
Your failures and successes, your up days and down days
Your friends and haters
Your affairs and relationships
Your this and that
Create an identity that's either true or false
I find however, there is only one that tells
The reality of my identity
Irrespective of where I've been
And is unafraid that I might get high-handed
It's the Word of His Grace that tells me WHO I AM

On Life (The Ten Virgins)

Though they all had the same status (virgins) and the same goal (to meet the bride groom)
5 were foolish and 5 were wise.
The scriptures tell us the 5 wise ones had spare oil while the 5 foolish ones had oil only in their lamps.
The truth is, the oil in their lamps ought to have been sufficient for the 'wait' but the bridegroom didn't come when they were expecting him.
The story is that the 5 foolish ones decided to go get some oil since their lamp had gone out but before they returned, the bridegroom had shut the doors and they couldn't enter in.
This story is a parable but also an allegory.
It is what happens when we begin to feel the weight and pressure of waiting for something over a long period.
The lamp represents light and oil represents the Holy Spirit.
A lot of things you desire may not come at the exact time you expect them.
The Holy Spirit is He who strengthens you in the 'wait'.
The Light of God's word shows you what steps to take while 'waiting'.
The bridegroom is never too late. He will come when He will come.
It's better to be equipped enough to wait till 'He comes'
'Cos only those who wait upon the Lord really renew their strength.
If we loose sight of the word concerning the matter (our light goes out) and we miss the Spirit (no spare oil), we are sure to miss our way into God's best for us.

On Choices (Judas)

It's easy to condemn Judas for how he betrayed Jesus, But hey!
Pause and think about it!
Judas is like the average human being who seeks to find out 'what's in it for me?'
Judas is like the man or woman who takes ungodly counsel without really weighing consequences
Judas is like the everyday person who takes risks with hope for a rewarding reward.
I was thinking about him recently and reading the scriptures, I find that as soon as he sees that Jesus was condemned, he was sorry for what he had done.
He goes to the chief priests and elders to return the money.
This is the point at which, like most of us, Judas realized his risk wasn't worth it.
His response shows us that, having experienced all the miracles Jesus had performed, he expected the Christ to probably disappear, or call fire and brimstone on all His accusers, walk away free and he (Judas) would walk away 30 pieces of silver richer.
But that wasn't going to happen. They had condemned Jesus, his Rabii and he reasoned, 'now there's no going back. What is this that I have done?'
So he tries to return the money but they wouldn't accept it. He throws it on the floor and makes for the gallows. He commits suicide.
We find ourselves in this position every now and then. We betray and are betrayed.
Whatever it is, there's a little to learn from Judas.
At least Judas had sense enough to show remorse for what he did.
But unlike Judas, when you make a mistake, don't beat yourself down to zero.
Jesus died once and for all and will restore you again to Himself if you will trust Him and have faith in His love.

ON CHOICES:Looking at the Wrong Things

I'm hardly the funniest person you'll come across.
My sister, Ejiro Beulah Orseer is a writer who's more on the humorous side of life.
This has a way of showing up on my blogs and posts. I'm always so serious, even I wonder why so serious?
But something really made me laugh recently,
I was on a bus and a certain lady was on the phone, speaking of a guy she had just met and was getting serious with.
In describing him she said
'He's a good guy, really nice guy, but he's too stingy'.
I could not help but laugh out.
How can he be a good guy, really great and still be so condemmed.
The point is, people are'nt perfect right, but when you really like someone, you don't emphasise their weakness before others.
So when I hear someone talk like that, they have one of two problems;
1. They are looking at the wrong things
2. They are looking at the wrong person
HahahHaha. It's that simple.

It's Tuesday night and as my custom is, I'll put up a post before the day's over, but tonight, no stir.
So I look inside and see what I find!
Living your life focusing on everything else but YOU, may sound like the selfless thing to do.
But it's only a matter of time before you find you have nothing more to give.
It's one sure way to 'leave' without 'living'.
FOCUS oñ YOU. Your life deserves some prime time.

On choices

Don't marry someone you 'can live with'.
Marry someone you 'can't live without'.
Pst Bimbo Odukoya.
Blessed are you if you know the difference.
