DAY 1 - IPray4U

Thanks Aloted for jolting me back to blog about my Day 1 experience, it wasn't as bad as the last time I tried it.
Because this time around, I am better prepared. On a normal day, I have this hourly prayer/declaration reminder on my phone and whenever it comes up, I say a short prayer for myself and others, this time around, I've been careful so far not to include myself in the prayer! Quite painful if you ask me but I did it.
Then in the evening, I rounded up by praying for everyone who's prayer request relates to my prayer point for the day. Yes I had to structure it that way otherwise, I'll be fooling myself.
So for instance, Day one was Fulfilment of God's Purpose, Spiritual Growth and Strength, Day two is prayer for Growth in Career/Business etc.
Pray for me though, the temptation to pray for myself is mega high, but I can do this right?:)

Don't Do it Without Me & IPray4U.

Hmmm na wa for me oh! My disappearing act no get part 2! I'm not even going to apologise 'cos I'm not sorry:D... a lot has been going on but do i want to share? errrrrr nope:P! I'm sure you guys are doing just fab, I know... I can feel it in my bones. Came across this song and I thought to share it and bless someone. There's always a theme for each month in my church and July is the month of ADVANCEMENT!... The song simply says "Lord whatever you're doing in this season, don't do it without me" I sure know I need to advance, I don't know about you, but if you're with me listen to the song and I pray're blessed as you do so.

 Don't Do It Without Me.

 Started writing this post @ Past 11pm on Wednesday, it is now early hours of Thursday, my friend Aloted started this prayer challenge which I think is a brilliant idea. To be honest, I started it, but I didn't realise how difficult it will be to NOT pray for myself for SEVEN WHOLE DAYS! Like everytime I start to pray for people, my own needs pop up and trust me at this point in time, my needs and wants are many! But I've decided to do it again, this time around, it will be more structured and well planned out. I'm even hoping I will be able to blog about the experience daily. If you have any prayer point, please leave it in the comment box provided below the post or send an email to Shallom. Follow me @Nolimit2life

Bomb Blast Averted At Ikeja, Lagos

When I heard this crazy news ... What came to mind was "Se na like this we go dey dey" it means, " Is this how we will continue to be/Is this it/So this is how we want to live?
And another friend put it up on her status that the bomb madness has spread to Lagos.
Is this how immune our leaders are to what the ordinary citizen is going through?
How in the world did we get here? why are we so shallow?
Why do we major in the minor and minor in the major? So many questions...
The president said we have to "live with it"... *deep sigh* for how long I ask can we live like this?
My prayer is the president will be given the grace to surround himself with advisers not pigs who really don't care if the nation is crumbling. Several people...wise and practical ones I must say have come up with doable ways of changing the situation... but for some weird reason, it never gets to the ears of "his Excellency"... sir I think it is time you started surfing the web yourself...
But I know one thing for sure... it is the fact that "But for GOD..Naija would have crumbled ages ago" I hail the resilience of my people...but this is beyond having a die hard attitude..change must come.
The song below describes how I feel about the whole shebang to an extent!

Omotola Jalade Ekeinde's OYEP Foundation Put A Smile on the Faces of Twenty Widows!!!

Follow me @Nolimit2life

Recently Omotola Jalade Ekeinde did something pretty amazing in my opinion that raised my respect and admiration for her by a couple of bars.
She took a group of widows on a pampering and makeover session. Some cynics may ask what happens after the makeover but my argument is: If she was able to put a smile on the faces of those women for a day and make them forgot their circumstances at that point in time... to just see themselves as another beautiful, unique creation of God, then she did very well.
Being an orphan myself, I can relate totally with what Omotola said about the widows always channelling whatever you give them to the upkeep of their children and the home...which is to be expected seeing that they are the only ones raising the children.
I can so relate with this as mother was like that, come to think of it, most mothers are like. They will rather wear the same clothing item for 10years than see their children lack anything at mum God rest her soul was like that...
I'm glad she was able to get this women to just chill out for a day out of 365days!
Amazing transformation I must say...the ladies came out looking so radiant!

Omotola, if you can read this, I'm telling you for this that you have done... you've got a fan in me! More grease to your elbow and I'm sure you know you will reap a hundred fold!

Here are the pictures I've tried to capture the before and afters from Linda Ikeji and Bella Naija
Talk about real transformation! Kudos to the make up artist, stylist and everybody who contributed in any way to put a smile on the faces of this women.
Heard there were twenty of them. God bless you all:)

So What Do You Guys Think???

30 Day challenge... DAY 15 - Your Zodiac sign and If You Feel They Fit Your Personality.

I know for sure that there are zodiac signs/horoscope readers etc ... I know they are sometimes on point but I also know that basing my life on it is a big No No!
Because the Word will reveal who I am, what I was created to do,where I ought to be and how I need to get there clearer and more accurate than any sign reading! confirmed... tried and tested!
I'm not surprised that the personality traits for the zodiac sign that matches my birthday matches my personality in many ways...the star gazers saw Jesus' sign many miles away, it still doesn't make it the right way to look into the future or discover who you are!
This is my opinion and I'm sticking with it :)

30 Day challenge... DAY 14 - What You Wore Today

Nothing major, heard it was going to be windy so I kitted up appropriately.
Had on a blue and black striped jumper and over my grey very sensible grey trousers and I wore a pair of black flats.
Ps: do I have to talk up about the thermal wear I wore too? lol!!!

30 Day challenge... DAY 13 - Your Opinion About Your Body And How Comfortable You Are With It. - Imperfect me!!!

Hey guys, I'm back(If I have a gold coin for the number of times I've said I'm back, I should be smiling to a Swiss bank:D)... anyways, bottom line is I'm back, I'm not going to worry about being consistent, cos that will make me want to stop in mid air as I cannot guarantee what tomorrow holds with regards to that...the only guarantee is... TOMORROW WILL BE BETTER FOR SURE!!!

Right, when I got today day 13, I actually put a post up but then I stopped because I thought I wasn't being exactly genuine, not that the post wasn't true, but it took me a long while to get comfortable with my body and I thought it will be more impactful to share the various struggles with you my wonderful here we go!

I am extremely comfortable with my body I dare say...!
But I wasn't always comfortable with my body... First was my belly was a round button indeed, it isn't like it was protruding or anything of that nature, but it was just round and cute like a button and as a child I used to wonder why it looked odd, well now I totally have no qualms about it as it just doesn't matter plus I can hardly see the belly button any think I used to make this priority!!!SMH
Then my lips, I used to think they were too thick and not pink! Goodness I take it back! dear lips of mine, I won't have you any other way... thick luscious African lips!!! Even the ones that don't have you try to get you("buttoxly speaking")!
Then came my face, I had this mega battle with acne and trust me when I say I tried almost everything! Jeez, they won't just leave me alone! Well I learnt to love my face inspite of the acne they're gone for good and I'm thankful!!!
Then my bum!!! *I'm laughing to myself*... When I graduated from secondary school, I thought my back was as flat as a desk and I just wasn't having it(I needed to be fully accepted in the "babe fold", having passed the "chest test")!!! from "bum pads"(glorified name for oversized shoulder pads from my big sister's jackets!!!lol sis I just lurr' you!) to wearing triple shorts...YES I tried everything! It wasn't long before I got tired of that nonsense, then I decided to just pray and give it a rest!
Well...the bum is not extra large...but it is just perfect for me! bum if you can hear are much appreciated!lol
...Well as I grew older, I learnt to appreciate me with all my imperfections...and as I did, my confidence level grew.
I love my body, I'm totally thankful for it, I try as much as I can to treat it right by eating right and exercising (occasionally) but I don't knock myself for not keeping to any regime.
In my opinion there is no perfect body but each body is perfect for the depends on how you see it.
A friend used to complain about being obese yet she never did anything about it, I told her to use the energy she expends on moaning to transform her body through exercising and eating right ...she eventually took action after two years, now she feels more comfortable with herself.
Moral of the story is...don't just complain about your body, do something about it.
It is important to be comfortable with the skin you're in...cos it will be with you till you're six feet below, in my opinion, that's a long time to not be comfortable!

This track by MI fits right into this blog post... ENJOY! *kisses*
