When God Himself Speaks To You| John Piper

And so it continues…

Consider this a mini update! I’ve officially been back at college for a week now. I can clearly see now how God has been in the business of wrecking my plans and ravishing my heart - it’s been crazy, but the latter makes it all worth it! I can’t wait to see what God will do in this 3rd and final year!

Soooo, what have I been up to? Well… I’ve started my UCAS application form which is quite overwhelming, I’m praying God will direct me into making the right uni’ choices; afterall He knows what’s best. Alsooo, planning for Christian Union this year - I’m excited about getting started in October and meeting fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. Please pray that He prepares myself and Aminat’s (fellow leading lady!) hearts and those in attendance too! And finally, I just started working a new job (praise God!) as a tutor! I’ll be working weekly, so I’d also appreciate your prayers for me to cope with studying, working and every other duty I am called to take on.

Concerning my results from the last academic year… I decided to delay that blog (update) until next August. I feel I only have 2/3rd’s of the testimony I’d like to share with you all, thus finding out my full A-level results next August will be the final 1/3rd. I have, however, acted out in faith by already queuing the post to testify!

I hope to write soon, God’s been filling my heart with a lot of insight I’d love to share.

Until next time,

Preston Perry and Jackie Hill Perry| The Fall

At P4CM’s renowned spoken word event Rhetoric this year, Preston and Jackie Perry debuted their first spoken word piece together. The two depict the fall of man in the garden of Eden through a poetical conversation between Adam and Eve. Their thought-provoking lines touch on the false promises which sin entices us with, and the root of all sin - our prideful desire to be God Himself. One would think our fallen nature would permanently ensnare and enslave all for generations to come; but as Preston and Jackie conclude, we are reminded - there is hope.

BLOG FEATURE - Why You Simply Can't Love Me for Me

After you take me in your arms and tell me that you love me for all that I am and all that I’m not… I will disappoint you. Time and time again. You will wake up one day, turn over, look at me, and be sick and tired of what you see. I will open my mouth and I will have found the words that aggravate you like no other.

How will you love me then?

Eighteen years today. Thankful.

UPDATE: 18.

24.07.96

The day I was born. I don’t have the greatest memory of my childhood years, but one thing I find truly amazing is how through it all, God has kept me. I grew up in a Christian home so I ‘always’ knew of The Lord, but He wasn’t My Lord, not until my later years in secondary school when The Lord convicted me of being a hypocrite. I owned up and gave in. Since first being asked to tell of my salvation story, I’ve been trying to figure out where exactly my testimony began, and where it should end?

THE PROBLEM WITH BEING A PERFECTIONIST (paraphrased)
  • *last week after a moment of 'rant-crying' out to God*
  • Me: ...SEE! All this is MY fault!! I've made sooo many mistakes!!
  • God: Chinaza. Think over all your years. All the decisions you've made... Have they all been perfect?
  • Me: *sobbing* Nooo...
  • God: ...And yet you are here.
