2012: Thankful...

2012 has been a great year. 
 I can look back at the year and say it has been God working everything out all along. 
Decisions were made, lessons were learnt, and a lot of changes recorded. 
God has been faithful to me. 

I thank Him for journey mercies. I  haven't traveled like I did in 2012. By air, land and over the waters
I have enjoyed sound health through 2012 and the few times I have been down God restored my strength.
I thank God for my family. God has kept us all
It has been a very challenging year as regards my job but God was faithful
Doors of opportunities were opened for me. I have enjoyed favour everywhere I go

If there was one thing I held on to all through the year, its the fact that God loves me and he has a great plan for my life and irregardless of what I'm going through, he is going to work it out for good.
Its been a very eventful year. Somethings didn't work out as planned but its all working our for good. 
Moving to a new location during the year wasn't easy but I'm adapting to the changes that came with it.
I thank God for provision, protection and sustenance.
I have learnt alot more about life and I hope I'll be able to apply them personally as it relates to relationships, career, business, etc
I thank God for the breath of life. Even in our unfaithfulness, God remains faithful. He never leaves us nor forsakes us. 
I thank God for the new skills I acquired in 2012 

I have not bee at my best in every area. But I thank God for His Grace and tender Mercies

Even though I'm not where I want to be, I'm not where I used to be. I remain thankful

Someone dear to me sent this to me this evening and its a Prayer that really speaks to me so I thought to share. Its a prayer Paul prayed in his letter to the Colosians

Colosians 1:9-12 Message Translation
Be assured that from the first day we heard of you, we haven't stopped praying for you, asking God to give you wise minds and spirits attuned to his will, and so acquire a thorough understanding of the ways in which God works. We pray that you'll live well for the Master, making him proud of you as you work hard in his orchard. As you learn more and more how God works, you will learn how to do your work. We pray that you'll have the strength to stick it out over the long haul—not the grim strength of gritting your teeth but the glory-strength God gives. It is strength that endures the unendurable and spills over into joy, thanking the Father who makes us strong enough to take part in everything bright and beautiful that he has for us.

I pray in 2013, may you not find enjoyment in the 'absence of God' in your life
Have a great year ahead!

Another Christmas

Its another Christmas, Thank God for the opportunity to witness another season to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
Much more than the merriment, parties,gifts, celebration, shopping,  etc. It should be a time to reflect on the purpose of the birth of our Saviour. Its good to celebrate His birth because its a season to celebrate his coming to Earth to save mankind as the bible puts it.

His birth was special. From the conception to delivery. Its all to show the power of God that with God, nothing is impossible.  Infact, thats the greatest message I learnt this Christmas.

But the purpose of His birth wasn't fulfilled when he was given birth to. It was completed when he was crucified for our sins and ressurected on the third day. Thats the complete package. As we celebrate Christmas, we should remember Christ also died for our sins.

Wishing you a merry Christmas
Happy Holidays

The Experience 2012 + Pictures

On the 7th of December 2012, The 7th Edition of The Experience, took place at the Tafawa Balewa Square Onikan, Lagos. It is undoubtedly The Largest Gospel Music event in the world with over 500,000 (I would say over a million) people in attendance. This year's event featured Artistes like Don Moen, Dietrick Haddon, Chevelle Franklyn, Micah Stampley, Israel Houghton, Fred Hammond and The Soweto Spiritual Singers and Nigerian Artistes like Wale Adenuga, Sammie Okposo, Timi Dakolo, Mike Aremu and the Chosen Treasure Choir. Michelle Williams of the defunct group Destiny's Child also graced the occasion.   She sang the Nigerian National Anthem beautifully.
It was a Night of Worship, Praise and Prayers. You can Imagine 11 hours of non stop Praise and Worship.

Just like the previous editions, I worked with the electronic media team and also had the opportunity to take pictures with my recently acquired Nikon DSLR camera and I have a few shots to share. Since its inception, I have only missed two editions the 2nd and 3rd(2007, 2008).

Its been a while I posted on this blog. I hope to post frequently. This time for real :D
