Ten reasons why you should date/ court/ marry a Christian

Dating or courting as a Christian is interesting.
One would think there would be no drama, but alas! The reverse is the case.
And by dating, i don't mean dating casually and having sex like the world. I mean being clearly led by God to someone else with the intention of marrying them.

Before I became born again, my spec ( specifications) as regards the guys I dated were simple.
He has to be Fine, fine, and fine ( don't blame me, who no like better thing ) with something upstairs (as in intelligent) a bit older , a little of a bad boy, and I had to feel attracted to him.
As you can imagine, that list was a recipe for disaster, even if I do have lots of ehm......interesting stories to tell from some of them.

Moving on...... Lol.
I found Christ, and of course I grew older and suddenly what I found attractive wasn't necessarily the face or physique any longer, nor was it his intelligence or educational qualifications or what he did but someone who was genuinely rooted in Christ and a man after God's own heart. Shikena.
Now, this doesn't mean that my former specs suddenly disappeared oh, after all who no like better thing. Lol. But the latter specifications ranked higher in importance.

Some of my favorite blogs ( pt 1)

So the thing is I love to read and write.
But I looooooove to read more than I love to write. And if you blog, that may not be such a good thing because the people you are reading WROTE, which basically means that if they didn't write, then what would I ( and you) read. Lol.

Having said that, the past few days  or weeks ( who is counting) lol, you would think I have been offline. But no! I have been online more than ever. Reading and re reading my favorite blogs and discovering some more.
And I would love to share some of them with you.  In no particular order oh, just as they pop into my mind, here they are.

This here is Adewale Aladejana's blog. If you are a frequent visitor to this blog, you would have come across some of his posts. He is such a nice guy and he is an awesome, Holy Spirit filled blogger.
Check him out, his posts are inspiring, some of them his personal experiences, some are fictionally spiritual lol. If you want to what that means, check him out.

So I dated a cult guy

Yep! Today is memory lane day. Lol.
Ok lemme confess, I am in the office and very very bored. Hence this post. 

Isn't it amazing when you look back at the past and all the shenanigans and compare it to your now as a Christian who knows exactly what to look out for in a man.

Anyway this was ages ago. Long long long ago! 
Anyway you read that right! Yep! I have dated a cult guy before.
Courtsey naij.com
More than one sef to be strictly honest.  And in my defense I didn't know he was one when I started dating him oh and even after we broke up. I was a * jambito, and he was the first boyfriend I had in the university.

Waiting for the Promise

Hi Guys! Isn't it just weird that today is the last day of June? I mean July starts tomorrow.

This months be running really fast. And giving somebody food for thought. Like Chai! Starts counting Fingers.
January! February! March! April! May! June! How did the months fly by so fast? And what exactly have I been up to sef? Lol.
One thing for sure is that I have been sort of MIA this month. And I apologize. Sometimes my head ain't quite in the right place or mood to write even secular stuff, how much more something as important to me as this blog. #sniff.

So, one thing struck me recently. The time between the verbal promise of God and its fulfillment.
Think about it or even imagine it.
You need a car, and you go meet your dad. And after a few times of your requests, he finally gives that word. Yes! I will buy you a car. The most wonderful car there is. It will serve you and your generations. People will be in awe of your car.
And you are like......fist bump! Yes!yes!đŸ‘ŠđŸŸ. Because that word he said is the koko. Lol.

Lost and Found

Soooo, as I mentioned in my last post, I had a baffling month.
If you haven't read it you can catch up and read it Here. And I mentioned that one of the stuff that happened was my brothers fiancĂ©e basically didn't hear from him and said he was missing..

 Lol. In case you are wondering how that happened, let's just add a paranoid girlfriend in one country, me in one country and my brother in another.
None of us were in the same country. You can see why an unreachable phone line and incommunicado fiancé can lead to confusion.

I decided to see the funny side of it, ( it wasn't funny at the moment, only later) which is why I didn't want to lump it in with the Last post.

So I put on my phone that Saturday morning only to get a message from my brother's fiancée. And believe me when I say I don't pray for anyone to ever wake up to such a message.

Esther's Upandan- Rebuking the devourer

So sorry guys that I have been MIA.
Honestly it wasn't planned. The past one month has been sorta baffling and stressful.
As in lots of stuff happened.
My neighbor died, my brothers fiancĂ©e declared him missing ( serious! as in police got involved) but I will talk about that later. 
The devourer had it in for me both mentally, emotionally and physically.
I was just overwhelmed.
Thank God for his faithfulness.

My mum fell ill. As in mysteriously ill. It started like play like play. A touch of fever, touch of cold, and all sorts. I mean nothing too extraordinary. This went on for a week.

Stopping Premarital Sex and My Christian Journey

We are going deep and personal today.

Ok I am laughing because of the subject matter and cos as at twenty minutes ago, ( i wrote this post on the 15th and edited today) I didn't even know I was going to write a post , not to talk of writing this particular post on premarital sex.
Pic Link
Although premarital sex and sex generally is a topic I would eventually have written on sha cos Hello! I am team celibate. Also someone asked me a question on abstinence sometime ago and i had a draft since March titled " you can also abstain".

S2C Tips: Prayer

As Christians, prayer is what we use for intimate communication with God, and since this blog is all about sharing and encouraging ( bats eyelashes) here are some tips from me to you. 

Get into the habit of pleading the Blood of Jesus Christ regularly. Especially during spiritual warfare prayers.
There are instances where I would be praying, and the prayer points would be such that The Holy Spirit would nudge me to plead the blood of Jesus on myself, family, room, house etc.

So I try to do it randomly too, before prayers,  during prayers, while traveling, before entering some places, in some sticky situations e.t.c 


It is always a good idea to clear the ground (so  to speak) of any thing that could stand against your prayers. Don't forget that Satan is the accuser of the brethren. He has that sin ledger, and if your name is on it, he will not hesitate to accuse you.

Esther's Upandan: Birthday

Hi Guys!
How did your month go? And Easter?

This month of March was awesome for me as it is my birthday month although Easter was a bit dry.

My birthday was on a Tuesday . And I had a lot of fun. Although not as much fun as last year's, which was on a Sunday.  This one started a little late because my colleagues had to close from work first.
 I had a few weeks leave so I was at home chilling trying to chill, i didn't relax as much as I was supposed to, what with people from work calling for one thing and the other and with Court appearances. One would think that leave means NO courts, but that's not the case. In fact I barely managed not to get myself roped into going to work on two separate occasions.

I can hear someone asking so how did the Birthday go?
Birthday girl! One year older.
Can somebody shout Halleluyah! Lol.

You know it's not easy now, all nah by the grace of God.
It was fun. Small, intimate with lots of gists and laughter.
I invited my crew from work. And by crew, I mean my paddy paddy friends from work.
