…… and it came to pass

This is def going to be rather short.

Idk o but why is it most times, it is the things we think/ fear that happen?

Take for example; some guys got flu at work and of everybody else I am the only one shouting “don’t come near me o” yada yada (I tend to get it easily, I have gotten so scared of it). Fast forward 2 weeks after (including me taking a break off work for a week) and now I am sneezing and coughing. What I feared is gradually coming upon me. God forbid. This one is going to go by prayer and fasting. Never to be feared again.

Somehow I discovered that when someone isn’t feeling fine and I get to know, the moment I start thinking about it, I somehow end up with the same issue. Like when someone I know had lumps removed from her breasts. Na so I start to dey think am o. To the extent I started researching on it. Well, I have had to remove lumps twice after that. And it came to pass ba? Or when I friend had appendicitis and had a surgery. I started thinking about it. Months later, my doctor says I have mild-appendicitis. I still don’t know what that means. Or is it the fact that I feared glasses so much and by JSS1, I was using glasses. Well, God took control. By faith I stopped using them and I can see very well.

At times I think am just being paranoid. Recently we had water issues at home. Water wasn’t getting into the house. So we had to fetch directly from the tank downstairs. I remember thinking or fearing that my body would start itching. Some days after, whether am just being paranoid o, there are times since then I feel all isn’t well.

Now I have decided not to think about all those negative. bad bad tins lest they come to pass.

Would rather let think the good things and let them come to pass. I don’t wanna b Job.

 

All iz well

If you haven’t watched 3 idiots (idiats), plix go look for it and WASH it… Lol. Seriously, please watch that movie. You would understand how the phrase All iz well came about. It is one Indian movie I would seriously recommend to anybody. And trust me, I have watched a lot, I can’t even remember their titles no longer.

Anywayz, that’s not the essence (per say) of this write-up (so I aint telling you the story, GO WATCH IT). I just wanna ask a question. What is it with us women (and some men) and worrying. I read an article which somehow did relate to Open Heavens topic for today. Don’t get me wrong. I know it isn’t easy not to worry, especially in our world today and I for one am guilty of worrying (at times). It is just that somehow, it is us women who tend to worry more. Guys are usually just relaxed about so many things we worry about.

Agreed. All humans worry, though at various levels, it is still quite amusing that at times what we worry about actually doesn’t make sense. Or at times, it is exactly what we worry about that ends up happening. Take Job as an example. We worry over some issues that we shouldn’t even worry about. We worry about the past (which beats me, though Pastor Adeboye did make a point about why people worry about the past- because they are afraid their past bad actions could have negative consequences on their present and future), the present and the future.

Yes, we have all done things in the past that would most likely have an impact on our present and future but by worrying about what is past, does that change whatever the consequence might be? And I want to believe that whatever the consequence may be sef, if we truly are born again, God would see us through. Might not be easy but He would. Take David as an example. Or Paul.

Also, I tend not to know the difference between thinking about an issue and worrying about an issue. There happens to be a very THIN line between thinking and worrying. There are times I think I was actually thinking about the issue but when I look back I discover I was actually worried.

For us Christians and even everybody, I think the earlier we start learning not to worry about anything and realize that all iz (is) well like Rancho said. No matter what it is. As long as we believe and serve God. All things work together for our good.

Matthew 6:25-32, 34

25Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

 26Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

 27Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

 28And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

 29And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

 30Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

 31Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

 32(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

 34Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Like Rancho said and kept saying (while beating his chest) All iz well. You really should hear the story about how that phrase came about

I don’t do married men

Sure you are wondering what kind of topic this is. Well that is what I choose to write about.

I have been wondering for a while what the fascination is with single ladies and married men. It is like the ring on the men’s hands is what actually attracts the women to them. Gone are the days when you see a guy with a ring and you immediately back off; knowing he is already taken. Now, it is the ring gan gan that makes the woman want him more.

Many stupid and silly reasons have been given for such acts. He was just to attractive/nice/caring/everything I wanted in a man and yada yada. Sorry o, but there are no single men out there that have these same qualities?? It must be another woman’s husband? Like I always say, we women are our own worst enemies.

Or, I didn’t know he was married. Let’s say he was even so good at keeping his family away from you, the moment you got to know nko? Oh, it’s hard to break off ba? *kmt*. To think that most women even know about the man’s family from the onset. Even heard a very dumb one, “any time he mentioned his family in the UK, I thought he was talking about his father and mother”. Like seriously?

Oh, I needed money… And if you are that desperate, there are no single guys ba? The list is endless. I could go on and on.

This is not to absolve married men too sha. I have had a recently married man whose wife was pg come meet me one day at an event, introduces himself with some much pleasure like I was meant to know who he was (trust me, as I didn’t know who he was, I gave him this do I care look) and then he asks for my number and am like Whaow. Funny thing was I was invited for the wedding. I knew his sister-in-law but didn’t know who her sister was getting married to. Didn’t go for the wedding sha. Monday morning back at school, am gisting my friends and the friend I got to know his sister-in-law through is like that’s A’s brother-in-law, infact A’s sister is heavy at the moment.

Or during one of my vac jobs, this guy is so on my case (he didn’t wear his ring). I enter the lunch room with another colleague who not knowing the guy was disturbing me sees him and asks how madam and the daughter are. I so laughed that day. I still laugh any time I remember the look on his face.

What I still don’t get sha is what attracts women to married men.

Anyways, I am Deronk and I don’t do married men.
