What runs through our minds when we get dressed to go out? Most people just want to look classy and elegant. Some will wear whatever is in vogue whether it suits you or nah, you all good! Some are plain nonchalant about the way they appear, so far as their nakedness is covered up. My question is this, how comfortable are we in whatever we put on?
I will like to address the second category of people listed above. Nowadays, everyone wants to wear the hottest new thang! In wearing these, are you comfortable? I see ladies, especially, in public gatherings and instead of focusing on the reason for being there, they are busy pulling their skirt down or adjusting the top, so that the half packed boobs don’t come falling right out. Lol. Okay… if you want to dress this way, why do we see you pulling the cloth down? Why don’t you rock it till your pant shows? We see ladies finding it difficult to make it to the other side of the road because of what they are wearing or when they want to sit, they start looking for what will cover their thighs. If you are uncomfortable, why are you wearing it? Why are you trying to conform to the things that the society puts out as right? You have a personal value system, judge and live by it.
But do you know you don’t have to wear everything you see on other people. What works for body A might not work for body B. Why are you trying desperately to be what you are not?
When you go out, you should be elegant and classy but don’t fit yourself into something you are not comfortable with because you want rock the latest. Like we have been saying, don’t compromise your values. Hold them fast!
Bottom line is, dear readers, let us dress well. Put out there the best version of yourself. Don’t pack yourself inside a dress because it is the latest. Don’t wear a cloth simply because it is reigning. Wear a cloth only for the right reasons, for comfort! I am tired of my eyes being injured by what I see…lol!
So, as a team we decided to add the appreciation category to it. There are people that have been backbones to the effective functioning of this blog and the achievement of the dream. They are not a part of the team but they make having a team possible in the first place. It is my pleasure to say that the first appreciation article is dedicated to no other person than Mr. Ibraheem Adebesin.
Recently, on facebook he was joking about when he would be acknowledged, little did he know that this was coming. So, this is going to be a surprise. I hope he is pleased with it. Plus, I stole a couple of pictures from Facebook lol. He is so going to yab me but I am well prepared.
It will amaze you all to know that Mr Ibraheem has touched almost everybody on the team through the teaching of English Language. When you hear/see me mesmerise you with my vocabulary prowess, you can trace it…lol!!! Even though he was my teacher, we had a sibling relationship as well. You know them ones that will argue and disagree a lot but in the end, you know we got each other. So, we have finished fighting now we are geling lol!!!
Let me proceed to burst his mind. He is not only an amazing husband, father and teacher, he is an author of an all time educative novel. You will find my name in the acknowledgement section. Hence that should be extra ginger to get and read it…Lol!!! He is one of the few ones that are so infused with the joy of teaching. I am sure it is not giving him the best but he does it and he does it happily. The joy radiates. He is an educator and mark my words years from now, his books will be big. More are still coming, let us finish advertising one…lol. He is a very inspirational character to emulate. He is so open minded that it will transform you. It is not all about having an accent to speak English. He teaches you that. He pushes you. He wants to see the best in you. He used to annoy me with spelling bee and essay writing but look at me today. People tell me they like my work and I am humbled. It is all God. Hence why I must appreciate those HE has put in the way to guide me here.
From the inception of this blog, from the very first article he has been supportive. Even with ideas still in the works, he has been there. So, this is just a little way of saying an Inspired Pens THANK YOU!!!
So, on the first edition of Sunday vibes we are going to be discussing our listening skills during Sunday service/mass.
You know most times ehn I am as guilty as everyone else when I talk about certain things. Other times I am as white as snow lol. Today I was in church and I phased in and out. Afterwards, I started looking around and wondering how many of these serious looking people were actually listening. Many people go to church for many other reasons other than listening. Some, to display their newly tailored attires; others may be swag. For some it is to make friends. You know you have that friend that every time you are trying to pray, they will tap you and crack a joke. Rebuke the devil!!!!!lol!
Okay, okay. My point is all of these things are not worth it. If your priority is not to learn about God and the heavenly kingdom, then please don’t go to church. Free up seats for those that really need it. You will see worthy people standing meanwhile one of the people sitting down is dozing off. It is in the bible that angels are in churches so sharpen your hearing aid biko. I am sure if I ask a lot of us what we learnt today, the answers I will get from some people will be wrong. Others might not even have an answer because they were blank. Please let us not make ourselves empty barrels. Through whatever opportunity, endow yourself with the word of God. It is important. When worldly people are frustrating you, there is a manual on how to deal with them, the word of God.
In summary, the church is not a bar for chilling. It is a place for learning and equipping yourselves with the necessary weapons. Some of us have missed our calls or messages because we were using our phones or exchanging smiles with that church crush. *sipping tea. It is dangerous to wander on earth without purpose. Some get their purpose in church or even a reaffirmation of that vision. But if you are too busy catching up with Instagram, instead of downloading God’s words directly, I wonder o. My only question is why then did you bother getting up and being there?
Let us make a personal resolution to do better. Ignore the distractions and deep the glory of God that is abundant and around you during the service or masses.
I am sure many of us can relate with the phone issues, a blessing and a curse that device is you see. Feel free to leave comments and let us know what you all think.
It is a Sunday again. We thank the Lord for His protection, provision, mercy and His unending love for us. So, it’s the last Sunday in the month of July. During the course of this month, some people have lost their jobs, some have lost their lives, some have lost family members…For the fact that we are alive today doesn’t mean we are overly righteous, it’s MERCY and GRACE. These are speaking for us and I will urge you not to take them for granted.
At this point, we need to be thankful to God, the maker of heaven and earth. We need to be thankful so wherever you are, just praise His name cos he deserves it and more! Alleluia.
At the beginning of this month, I shared something with all of us. I hope we were full of smiles and faith in the days past? We will like to hear how the month went for you. Comments will be appreciated.
As we end this month, I will like us to look at an individual worthy of emulation. His name is SOLOMON. yeah! Solomon in the Bible! Let’s be brief. God asked him what he wanted and he wanted WISDOM. Just that! God is asking what you want. What will your reply be? Ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened to you (Matthew 7:7)
Stop chasing things that make you happy alone. Store up your treasures in heaven! Let’s choose wisely.
I will end with this with seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you……Matthew 6:33
