Guyssssss! I’m as shocked as you are that it’s been forty days since i last updated my blog. To those who reached out to me to find out if anything was wrong, thank you so much. You have no idea how thankful and grateful i felt that my articles help you and you missed seeing updates on here.
Before i show you pictures of what i got up to, let me tell you in details what happened the last forty days. *drum roll*
(This was me on set – In this episode i was a business owner who came to find out information from the Tax office. Lol)
I was on set for the production of a TV series “Ahead Ahead” (An Anambra Broadcasting Service Production) for five weeks (this was why it was that long) and then i had to recover. It’s not that i couldn’t multitask and update regularly but i allowed myself get SO busy physically and i got drained that it even affect my personal relationship with God.
Although, i have a habit of reading my devotional before getting out of bed, i won’t lie, this was the only way i stayed in touch with God during that time. We had Sundays off but i was always too tired to get dressed to go to church, so i always slept in.
(I use Open Heavens devotional by Pastor E.A Adeboye)
It was only a matter of days i started noticing i was beginning to bear “bad fruits“. I got angry so quickly, i began to engage in gossip, i started feeling empty and alone, jealousy was beginning to set in and i was about to become a bitter young woman, this was when God spoke in a firm way i knew it could only be Him cautioning me about backsliding.
I had this dream, believe me it felt TOO real! In the dream, i was being attacked and was so scared but before i could be subdued, i began speaking in tongues with my last strength. As i did that, i found myself having more strength so i looked around and saw a church curtain so i held onto it and continued praying.
At this point in time everything was beginning to calm down, then i found myself in a room singing praises and praying and not long after that, people began to join me and more people till the room became filled, everyone singing and praising God and this was when i woke up.
It was 2am. I was so thankful. I began asking God for mercy and thanking Him for saving me once again and reminding me of His purpose for my life.
Finally, the break made me listen to more of secular music and now i’m struggling with trying sieve the secular songs i listen to but i’m beginning to consciously choose what i listen to and download gospel songs and not just any but songs that can feed my spirit man and fuel my faith. Songs that glorify God, best believe not all Gospel songs glorify God.
Even When It Hurts by Hillsong United is my favorite song right now 🙂
I’m back to writing and by God’s grace i won’t starve you any more. I’m so sorry.
Few things to pick from this post;
- Never allow yourself get too busy that it begins to affect your personal relationship with God.
- Always ask God to firmly put you back on track if you end up getting too busy.
- Don’t make excuses like i did to stay away from church or stop feeding your spirit man. This will only make you drift so remember to check the music you listen to, the friends you keep, what you watch, places you go.
- Remember it is VERY important you involve God in your decision making to avoid pain or depression.
Have a great day! I love you!
