It's my birthday
As bright as the Sun
Today was so warm and bright, as I stepped out of my block I wished I stepped out earlier. Had so much to do and going to the market? Well, I wasn't down for it but I had no choice. Opened my fridge this morning to get something to eat and realised it was practically empty. I prayed to God to direct my day because I really had to do all my laundry, cooking and studying. Guess what? I'm almost done with all I had to do. God truly put some sunshine in my heart today n he made me quickly finish my task, I even had spare time to prepare Cherry Sorbet which I might take to church tomorrow. It's taking too long to freeze. Anyway, I feel so sleepy now.. I guess all I wanted to say is, never stop asking God because just when you don't expect it, Bang! It will happen. Watch out on emeraldogz.com, new stuff coming soon too. Do not forget to prepare your heart for tomorrow's worship, God is going to bless in an unusual way.. Listen to every word, that might just be what you need to carry on.
I attended women for Africa award as a Press for my Fashion Magazine and at this event were so many African women, very beautiful with so many gorgeous designs.
One of the attendees who is also the President of this organisation (Women 4 Africa), a Nigerian Celebrity: Stella Damasus. She enlightened everyone about the abuse of women in Africa with case studies. This got me thinking, African women are abused on a daily basis. Some were abused when they were little, others as teenagers and some while married. It has become a big issue around the world, most especially in Africa were there is no one to fight for them. We must all try our best in every way possible to help these women. I have started playing my part, and I implore you to start too.. no matter how little, one day we will be heard and domestic violence will cease.
This is something I've always admired, desperately wanted and prayed for. Following a sermon at church about a month or two ago, I prayed fervently for it.
I woke up this morning excited about life, because I got to learn that each day God gives us life is a gift and when he chooses to take it, we should thank God for it, because life itself is a struggle.
As I prepare to round up studying and everything relating to Academics at the moment, I get scared but something triggered: God's wisdom. It doesn't come cheap and when it comes, it includes all in one.
I thought of something to write on my blog today, not this... The blog that includes my articles (Emerald's Notebook). I noticed when I just write off my head, it doesn't come out as good as when I am led my HIS mighty hand. I finally found one of my previously written articles and I added just a little to it. I thank God for using me in people's life even as he speaks to me through the poems, novels and plays.
For every little gift, NEVER fail to PRAISE GOD.
I know it's been a while i wrote on here. I've been busy trying to finish up with Uni. Please don't forget to check out my other journal that has all my poems and novels.
I'll be keeping you up to date about my personal life n journey to heaven. It's a tough one but i ain't gonna be an ex-soldier because God said i'm gonna make it! Yes he did!
Okay. I'm i missing something? Yeah.. Coming up next would be the story of the youth camp i attended. Stay logged on and don't forget www.emeraldogzz.com
