...For the Love of God and Re-kindled Fire

Hello Everyone,

This post is basically what has been going on with me for a while now, i decided to write this here because... oh well, Just because.

I Love God, sometimes even more than i acknowledge. I have been in the dark for a while now, i started calling myself the "Blind Seer" as a form of consolation that was after i read in 

Isaiah 42:16-19

16 And I will bring the blind by a way [that] they knew not; I will lead them in paths [that] they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
17 They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten images, Ye [are] our gods.
18 Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see.
19 Who [is] blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger [that] I sent? who [is] blind as [he that is] perfect, and blind as the LORD'S servant?

Yes, I consoled myself. Have you ever been in the dark and also not hearing anything from God? Its not a very good place to be.

I can even only come here and write this because he brought me out, thats how "faith-less" i was.

...In Our ears | What Music is good for Christians?

My question to you is what is in your ears?


Everywhere you go, every channel you switch to its in your ears. Even on my phone and on your laptop, Its all in your ears.

*Insert Limpopo tune here* #iKid
i'm taking music. Music is everywhere and its so powerful and everyone is trying to make it. #PunIntended

Takes me on a trip back to creation, God made everything and he said it was good. Now who goes about saying that there is bad or evil music?

In my opinion, there is just music that is good for you and there is music that is not good for you.

Does that make those songs evil or bad? No.

"All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient; all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not" 1 Corinthians 10:23

Alot of Christians will go about preaching that its a sin to listen to secular music, newsflash; Its not. As much as God cares about what goes into your heart/soul, he doesn't hold it against you.

"And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul. but fear him which is able to destroy both the soul and body in hell" Matt 10:28

I know this portion was talking about God but i'm sure it also applies to the acts/choices that can destroy our soul.

So, why are some songs not good for you?
Because they do not edify your soul. Songs/Music is so powerful and it holds so much influence over us. Imagine feeling down and just listening to a particular song and boom you are all smiles and butterflies.
Now that is the power of music.

Ever since i read

"And be not conformed to the world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is good and acceptable, and perfect will of God" Romans 12:2

I decided to renew my mind by what i allowed in, because i knew that what i was letting in at the time was causing more harm than good, Yes this goes beyond the songs you listen to, it also goes to what you say about yourself and what you let people pronounce over you.

"...For of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks" Luke 6:45 

Can i rock your boat alittle? Not all "gospel"songs edify your soul or glorifies God.

there are songs that edify your soul, there are songs that glorify God, there are alot of song that don't.
Just because it is under the genre "Gospel" doesn't make it automatically good for you.
So, how do you know what music is good for you? Simple

"Howbeit when he, the spirit of truth is come, he will guide you into ALL truth. for he shall not speak of himself, but whatsoever he shall hear that shall he speak; he will show you things to come" John 16:13

Let the spirit be your guide "He will guide you into ALL truth" ALL includes your playlist, God didn't bring us here to go through life on our own. We have the spirit as our guide, comfort, mentor name it, He is there.

Why not let him pick out your playlist for you?

Suffering bought Simplicity


I could write something that is literally mind blowing,
i could use my pen to make you give a standing ovation,
I could use this medium to make you give me a round of applause.
But that would be making it about me, Its not about me.
It has never been about me.

Today, i'm going to be telling you about what brings me to my knees everytime i hear it.
or rather who.
Today, i will be simple.
Just like him.

I wrote a title over 6months ago, but i had no knowledge, the burning desire didn't leave, i wanted to pen down this simplicity.
The simplicity in this relationship.
I carved, searched to increase in knowledge.
but, it just wasn't good enough.
Everything i found couldn't measure up to the message.

Little did i know that, That exactly was the idea behind it.
That it should not be good enough in itself.

I pick up my pen to write, without an idea of what to put down, 2mins later look where we got?
Its him, not me.
Its all in his simplicity.
simplicity in the relationship.
But i've not gotten to the point have i?

Where was i? Yes, It was never enough was it?
The sleepless night buried inside Google, searching.
engrossed in the sounds of various "insights", Listening.
Eyes glued to the letters, reading.
Eyes closed to the world, praying.
Feeling inadequate, guilty.
working to make it enough, striving.

"Pause, wait, stop. Which ever just choose one" He said
I stopped on my tracks and looked back at who spoke.
There he was, bent forward with the huge log on his shoulder,
beaten, despised, blood dripping.
The grief and sorrow on his face was unmistakable,
still with a tenderness in his eyes said
"Then why did i do this?"

I felt ashamed but the power in the atmosphere brought me to my knees.
I wept. This time for Joy.
So, "what do i do now?"
"Rest in my finished works" He replied with a tender smile.

#TruthSeries: Beneath the cloak

Whats beneath your cloak?
Life as it seems we all walk the street of the earth with one story or the other with our dresses so elegant and our faces so beautiful and it never seems that we have issues with our lives but still we try and be strong have heard several cases of suicide in recent times in the country (Nigeria), this was not always the case recently it was the one that happened in a church some where in Abeokuta.
     The fake smile the child acting happy over a new shoe or a new bicycle maybe a PlayStation3 this happiness ends when you get tired of the new shoe or cloth and u don't have new CDs to play on your Console and the reason for hurt and pain is back and you realise it was never the console u required nor was it the shoes and clothes.
Who do we blame for a failed childhood? The parents or the child? In this series we will look at true life stories of kids below 18 that their childhood is not one to remember or talk about but these kids have lived with this memoir trying to forget with no one to tell or how to let the pain out.

How it all started...

Growing up was not a walk in the park as the third born of mother and the and the fifth of my father you would think I grew up knowing the right things to do and you would believe I had all the attention I could get but reverse was the case. As a young boy attention was far from me Father was never around mother spends the greater part of her day trying to make money and give us a good life but the actual life was neglected the life that should have formed the bedrock of my future having four brothers even talking about your darkest secrets of pain was difficult because they were never available to listen all my father did when he is home was give orders and when it wasnt followed we were severely dealt with. When I was five years old I had started witnessing violence there was no love in my home no where to seek solace I wouldn't blame my mum she just wanted the best for her kids I would witness my dad beat up my mum as a child of five with no love in his heart and who had no body to talk to I had just one play mate and she was my mums friends child which makes her my family friend I guess and her situation was similar to mine maybe leaving out the violence her father was never around too we attended the same primary school and I was just in primary 3 when we started the mummy and daddy charade I can still remember all the Time we spend in the toilet kissing and smooching nothing was on her chest though but nobody knew all this was happening and it was happening right under our parents nose every thing I tried with her were things I learnt from my brothers. 

This event that happened 19years ago probably started my not so proud eventful life a life where I constantly deceive myself that doing the wrong thing is right, a life where sadness engulfed so much that my mind became so dark, a life where pain is all I feel every time I remember the girls I laid my hands on violently beneath my garment lies dark secrets and thoughts beneath it lie pain and hatred for the kind of person I am underneath this garment is where my greatest fear reside. As I write this I shed tears because what I feel and how I feel tears me apart and I seem not to know who I am anymore. This is the begining of a childhood that was not so great a childhood of pain and emotional suffering. Do not laugh at my pain because many of us are not bold enough to talk about the pain we feel it took me 18years to have the confidence to write about my pain and still there is more.

Written by seun.

I am waiting for him to continue this..

We are NOT the world

I'm not sorry Micheal Jackson

Crowd cheering, the roar of applause filled the theater, roses thrown my way. spotlight still on me, beaming with smile and basking in the moments that felt like a life time.
Soon, the curtains began to close. i had to leave, the show was over. 30 mins later, standing on the exact spot, no crowd, no spotlight.
The audible voice spoke from one of the empty seats
"Now, Who are you?"

*                                                   *                                                    *
The power holders are at their best, sitting in the quietness of the darkness, only my world wasn't so quiet. the light against my face from my device made so much noise between the @s and the #s i don't know which was louder, but then white bar became orange.
"Battery too low for radio use" then i saw "Now, who are you?" flashed before the screen. I blinked twice. Back to the quietness of the darkness, quietness of the question
"Now, Who are you?"

I could go on and on but you get my drift..

When the darkness gives way for the dawn.
when the day retires for the darkness to come alive.
when the applause dies down.
when the music fades.
when your battery dies.
when you see through the eye of the storm.
when the storm rages or doesn't rage.
can you honestly answer.
"who am i?" afterall.

We have let our professions, family, friends, problems, emotions,social media, fame, influence and what not define who we are.
whereas the uncreated creator has a contrary opinion.

Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Jer 1:5

Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. John 15:16

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: 1Peter 2:9

Now who you are? I don't know. Who you are not? I know. You are NOT the world or what the world tries to defines you to be.
Who are you? I don't know but i know who knows, didn't you you hear him say 
"before i formed thee i knew thee?" So, what are you waiting for?

Go ask the master planner.

Happy New August!!!!!!!!!!!
