My Special Christmas Miracles 2!!

  • My sponsored Christmas

Earlier I mentioned calling my month what I wanted, and God backed it. I called December the month of special miracles. I knew without a shadow of a doubt that it would be a month where I learn to depend on Him wholly. If not for anything, for the fact that I did not really have enough in my bank account. So, I knew that I could not even flex this December. Do you know what I did? I went to have a conversation with the person throwing the Christmas party. Yes! I had a conversation with the real Father of Christmas. I mean my elder brother was about to be born so please sponsor all your children this Christmas. I prayed with a lot of faith that every little need of mine would be miraculously met. The truth is I had not personally identified anything I needed yet. But I knew there would be things I need in front.

Altogether, I have 12 miracles apart from the story of my sister I shared. You know like the 12 days on Christmas song..lol. Now come on a journey with me as I briefly speak about these miracles. Again, this is not for show off really. This is to show you what a relationship with God is capable of yielding. The doors knowing your Father would open for you. Also, I know I said I prayed with a lot of faith. Yes, I did. Were there days I slightly worried? Yes, there were but I always rebuked it and reminded myself of who had me. So, let’s start.

My first miracle was I received my Amazon vouchers earlier than when due. Now on the side, I have a digital ambassadorship volunteering role with the university. Basically, I answer questions concerning my school from prospective students. You know, some people want to know what the environment is like and other related questions. In return, I get paid in Amazon vouchers. This vouchers usually come at the end of the month. But I got a ‘by the way’ email stating that it would be sent way earlier. I received it and they had even added extra to the usual amount. I was so excited. It meant I could get myself a little something from Amazon as a gift for myself which I sure did.

Because I serve a God that gives double portions, that very day my second miracle happened. Now although, I had my Amazon voucher and was excited to gift myself something. What I really wanted was a pair of shoes. I suddenly started craving owning a pair of heels. I told myself I would wear one after over a year of not wearing one. However, I did not currently own any. So, I went on Boohoo and was window shopping. At the same time, I was chatting with a friend. He has been my friend since secondary school. And just so we are clear, he does not buy me anything. In fact, in the 11 or 12 years we have known each other, he had only bought me an actual gift once and coldstone once. Just giving you guys perspective ehn.

Back to my story, he started whining over wanting a particular sandwich and that I should get it for him. And I said in turn, he too should get me the shoes I was looking at. Of course, I was playing. I was trying to tell him that everybody is looking for something and he should free me o. Next thing, he asked me to send him the link to the shoes I was looking at let him see. I sent it. He then asked for my house details that he would order it. You know when you think your friend is pranking you yeah? That is exactly how I felt. But I sent him the details. Next thing he teased me asking me so I really think he can afford to buy me those shoes. In my head, I said I knew it!

There I was thinking that he really had tried to prank me, and he sent me a screenshot! I was in shock! He had actually ordered me the shoes and said it was my Christmas gift. I was so excited and could barely contain my joy. It really wasn’t because a friend bought me shoes. It was because it was a double confirmation in one day. My Heavenly Father was showing me with His Mighty Chest that He would take care of me. All I did was look at shoes and they were mine. Ahhh!!!!!! What a wawu? I started immediately thinking of what to look at next. My appetite for my special miracles increased. I could have more.

A couple of days later, I received an email from my school accommodation telling me that I was entitled to a refund. When I saw the amount I was entitled to, I ‘kinda’ feared a little. I asked them to double check please. Because I was sure that was not exactly accruable to me. It was checked and it turned out that it is an amount from my accommodation fees in undergrad. I do not know if you are getting it. All of a sudden, I have refundable fees from my days in undergrad. I graduated in 2017 and it is in 2020, they are reminded of that refund due to me. If it is not God, tell me who now? Now, I have not received the refund yet because the school went on break and all. But I strongly believe God just wanted me to know that His provision does not end with December, there is already provision stored up for me in future, at a time that it would be beneficial to me.

Yay!! So, that is the first 3. We have 9 more to go. Stay tuned!

Stay blessed!

MY SPECIAL CHRISTMAS MIRACLES 1!!

Hello Lovelies,

How have you been? How are you enjoying the new year?

Our first blog post and it is by me! This is probably the first time in years that the first post is by me. New Year resolution movement..lol. Of course, it has to be a really good one or at least, I hope it is. I am sharing my December story with my lovelies.

So, I had a wonderful December. It was soooo wonderful. And no before you start losing focus, I did not have a ‘Detty December’! I had a God sponsoring December. It was a December of God pampering me on a reg. Clearly, I am so excited by that statement and I thought to blog about it. You know, share a piece of my cake with you. As with everything I write, it is really to inspire you. To let you know that there is a lot out there for you. Take your position at the feast table. So,  without talking too much, let’s get into my Christmas miracles. I hope it gingers you a ‘lirru’.

  • Calling forth my Lazarus

Lol. You are probably wondering why the title is so deep. Well, at the time that was my reference, the frame with which I looked at the situation. If He had done it before, He is faithful to do it again! Okay okay I already hear you asking what exactly happened. Interestingly, not a lot of people know about it. Well, everybody that was not in church last Sunday when I shared the testimony knows nothing about it. So, this is premium gist, lol.

My sister (yes, the one you all know and love) was to travel from Country A to Country B. I was certain of journey mercies. We had a family call just before she boarded the plane. However, immediately after wishing her journey mercies that I was certain of, something happened. I am not exactly sure of what happened. I do not know if I went into a trance or if it was a vision I saw. I am not good with these things yet. But the important thing is that I suddenly saw a plane crash and also saw myself calling forth my sister from the crash. I called her back to life which was similar to Jesus calling Lazarus forth.

Now when I came back to myself, I kept thinking about it. I told myself that it was not on my feast table. If there is anything I am confident about, it is the fact that I will not die by accident. And this prayer covers my family and people connected to me. I will not lose a sister to a plane crash. Whilst a part of me pondered on the story of Jesus calling Lazarus forth, the other part of me dismissed it as one of my very weird imaginations. I have an overly active imagination and sometimes it behaves like it is on steroids. So, I blamed this on some weirdness going on somewhere in my head.

The next day, I spoke to my sister and she was just fine. See! It was really my brain acting funny. I was simply ignorant. What I did not know was that there was indeed a problem with her plane that had forced them to have an emergency landing in another country on their way to Country B. Eventually, she got to Country B sound but she was forced to go into quarantine as the plane had its emergency landing in a high risk country. Whilst she was more upset about being in quarantine, I was in awe. God had just saved my sister! I do not think I am grateful enough! Imagine I saw that vision and did not even call her forth before dismissing it as a weird imagination? This is why it is very important to be sensitive in the spirit. This is why it is important to pray when you feel led to. You never know whose life you are saving. Maybe one day in heaven, you will get a clue of the things you averted because you simply obeyed the urge to say a simple prayer.

My sister will be in shock when she reads this because I never told her or anyone about it. I just kept marvelling at the type of God I serve. A God that will cause me to see something in advance and shield my sister from it. You know the funny thing? I really did not do anything too big. I did not say a mighty prayer. I just kept saying ‘I call Afoma forth’. And then I dismissed it. It was so simple. See ehn, your prayers do not need to be unnecessarily long. God is not deaf. Your prayer does not need to contain big English. None of that impresses God. Just speak!

From this miracle, I learnt God is with me o! He loves me so much! He takes everything I take personally, extra personally. He is ready to work with me if I am ready. I said this was December of special miracles. I called my month what I wanted it and He backed it! He did not leave me hanging out there. Your mouth and words are very powerful. Using the word of God, call a situation what you want it to be. Take your rightful position. I hope you realise that you can begin to call forth your miracles. Everything you need is available, CALL IT FORTH! I called my month what I wanted to be, and my Mighty God honoured my word. And this is just the beginning o! I have more to share with you. Just wait for it. At least, I can share the ones I was conscious of. The truth is even when it does not feel like it, He is working. So, there are things I am probably not aware of that He did for me in December. Ahh you cannot tell me God is not real. Neither can you tell me He is not good. Finally, you cannot tell me He doesn’t love me!

I will serve you more soonish! Stick around my love but first enjoy this one. And of course, let me know what you think.

CHRISTIAN VIBES: GOD IS ALWAYS WORKING!!

One of the songs that has thoroughly blessed me this season is ‘Way Maker’ by Sinach. A particular line in a cover goes like this ‘even when I don’t see it You’re working, even when I don’t feel it You’re working, You never stop, you never stop working.’

The song has been a real blessing, confirming the goodness of God. God is good in all situations. I mean, all situations because that is His person, He is good!

In a bid to unwind and let go of some stress, I went on YouTube and clicked on a Nigerian movie, more like series -about 8 episodes. For whatever reason, I wanted to see how it was going to end (it wasn’t that interesting). Let me give you the gist.

The mother-in-law (MIL) hated the daughter-in-law (DIL) and her son was a cheat, but he ‘loved’ his wife (I have never been able to understand this mentality). The MIL did everything to try to drive the DIL out of the house. She went as far as sending men to seduce her DIL with the hopes of collating pictures that would defame her character. However, her plans failed repeatedly.

On a particular occasion, the man was playing the part of an important businessman who was interested in the DIL’s company and insisted on having the meeting at a hotel. 

The man got there ahead of time and was chilling. He employed the help of his friend to play the role of his personal assistant. DIL arrived and was speaking to the ‘businessman’ when the ‘PA’ interrupted the meeting and signaled the ‘businessman’ to leave. The PA later told his friend that the lady was actually a good woman and shouldn’t be set up in that manner. That’s how she was saved from disgrace and interestingly, she might have thought she just lost a good business deal.

But that’s the point, resting in the love of God reassures you that no matter what happens, you win! Even if we don’t see it or understand it, we always win through God.

She won that day without even raising a sling.

Rest in the Lord always. He is good!

AFOMA.

BE GRATEFUL FOR NOW!

Happy Sunday everyone!!!!

Recently, I had a boil on my right eye! My eye! I have never had a boil in my life, maybe once if at all, so you must understand the uncomfortable situation and the perfect location for it was my eye! Well, I had to endure the pain. It gave me terrible headaches plus my eyes were watery. It was just terrible and uncomfortable. I just wanted it to go.

This is my point, when my eyes were without the boil, when I had no pus coming out of my eyes, how many times did I thank God for normal set of eyes? Thing is, we overlook the little things of life and await gigantic miracles so we can go about shouting ‘my God is real’ or whatever. Don’t get me wrong, be grateful always but don’t just be grateful for the large things, be grateful for the little thing as well. Be grateful for waking up, be grateful that you can see, be grateful that you can hear, be grateful you can walk, be grateful. And the thanks is still never enough.

Don’t wait to be in pains like I was in before you remember to be grateful for what you have. Be grateful for what you have. It is the same God that heals cancer that gives a perfect set of eyes lol. God is the same and we must be grateful. So don’t wait till you lose it before you are grateful. It is often said that people don’t cherish what they have until they lose it. Let that not be our story.

Now, not just being grateful to God but also being appreciative of those around us. Be grateful for the people around you.

Have a blessed week.

GUARDING YOUR FAITH THROUGH BAR FINALS PART 2

Hello Lovelies!!!!

So yesterday I posted the first half of the article. Please make sure to check that out before continuing with this one. I hope it is really helpful

5. “The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning.” – Lamentations 3:2223 NLT

I just thought I should let you know that the Lord remains faithful through our unfaithfulness. His love for you never ceases and His mercies upon your life are new every morning.

6. “And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” – Philippians 1:6 NLT

These last few bible verses have been doing more of the lifting for me.

God has had your success in mind from the first day you were dropped off at school, and is the same God today. The same one that saw you through your first degree (if you have more than one that is even juicier) is the same God here.

This same God has watched and kept you as you morphed into the handsome looking man/beautifully made woman you are now. This God isn’t done with you yet.

His word says the God that started the work within you will continue it. You must believe that He is still working with you, through you and on you. You must let Him be the pillar of your life and work His wonders.

You need to tell yourself you are God’s plan. God’s plan never fails.

7. “Trust in the LORD with all your heart. Never rely on what you think you know. Remember the LORD in everything you do, and he will show you the right way. Never let yourself think that you are wiser than you are; simply obey the LORD and refuse to do wrong.” – Proverbs 3:57 GNBDK

You see the question I asked as to under whose authority are you writing this exam was prompted by our usual human actions. Every time we say, ‘I, I, I’. Do you leave room for God in this mix?

I do not know if you have noticed but God is right there with you waiting for you to let Him be your God. The question is how long are you willing to hang on to this connection? This is Him telling you “Here I am son/daughter”. But naa you are blinded by your human insufficiency. You are too occupied trying to make yourself feel prepared. You forget that our sufficiency is only in our maker.

You forget what the Big God is capable of doing. You are relying on what you know. You let your worldly eye blind your spiritual eye.

From experience we learn. Today you need to count your blessings. This is another proof that He has not abandoned you. He is right there even though you did not really notice.

Take this forward with you. With every decision you make. The big ones, the little ones. Let Him guide you. Your biggest mistake will be to keep relying on your limited capacity when the omniknowest is at your door step knocking. Let Him in!

8. “Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.” – Deuteronomy 31:8 NLT

I just want you to know that before you enter your exam hall every single day, He has gone ahead of you. He knows it all. He knows how you are feeling right now. He sees everything including the pointless things.

The important part of this verse is He will not fail you or abandon you. You being sad and worried, that’s acting like He has abandoned you. If you were in doubt, here’s His word telling you He has got you 100%.

You need to ditch that fear. Right now, as you read this, look at yourself in the mirror and command any atom of fear trying to build a mansion within you to vacate. Give it Notice to Quit and Notice of Owner’s intention to recover possession. Worry not, in this instance you are allowed to give the notices the same day and it takes effect from today. You are in control! You dominate your space!

9. “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” – Isaiah 41:10 NLT

It appears that the Bible verses coming for me recently are targeted at your fear of failure.

This wonderful God we serve is at your doorstep today reminding you again that He is with you.

The part that has got me is ‘don’t be discouraged for I am your God’. Do you understand the magnitude of this statement?

See it does not matter that you got it wrong, don’t be discouraged cause you got a God. It does matter that you do not even know the answer, you got a God.

Not just any small g god but the big G God. The beginning and the end! The Just God! You think God who is the law will let His own fail a law exam?

He said He will hold you up with His victorious right hand. Victory is certain for God’s own. The beautiful thing is we are all unworthy yet He counts us worthy.

I really do not know how you are still feeling. I don’t know if you have had time to read these verses yourself. But what I know is victory is guaranteed. The question is do you believe it? Are you acting on it? Is your heart shifting direction? Or you letting thoughts hold you down?

You need to know that these thoughts are the devil’s way of making you accept failure. You need to accept the concept for him to manifest it. Do not give such a power over your life.

Lastly, I need you to remember that David wasn’t the most qualified but God chose him anyway by-passing all his macho brothers. Do not let any of these weigh on your prospects and confidence. You will do just fine in the real life!

I hope this really helps someone out there. All of these could end up being just words if you refuse to internalise it. Please I plead with you, take your time to meditate and make a decision today to walk a path of faith. If you ever feel lost, please reach out to me and I would be very happy to remind you how much God has got you 100%.

Thank you for reading this and Stay Blessed!

Queen NATALIA
