It’s a belated Happy New year from me to you. Sorry that I have been M.I.A but glory to God, I am back and with lots of stuff to share with you all. I’ll be back on Thursday with a proper first post for the year. Until then “Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him. (Psalm 34:8)
The title of this blog is beauty and spice, there have been days when I have wondered just how beautiful and spiced my life is and just how much beauty and spice I bring to your lives. I have been tempted to go the other way, in fact to turn my back on God. I tried to, I thought my problems were too big for God to solve and that I was a huge disappointment to him. I was approached by people, cults looking for a disciple in me. I listened to them all, read their proposals. The bottom line is I realized that I am really Gods own and truly longed for no one else but him.
I tell you nothing will ever separate us from Gods love as his word says “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?”(Romans 8:35) Should we ever allow any of these things separate us from Gods love? Even as you remember that, the same chapter in the book of Romans says “Nay, In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us” (Romans 8:37)
Recently, there was mass recruitment in my office and shockingly I met John. John was my friend and classmate in primary school, John was recruited as a driver. Now tell me isn’t my life beautiful? Here I am a senior staff in this office and my class mate is a driver. Did I do anything to deserve such love? What did I ever do to merit this measure of love and so much grace, so much opportunity?
Today I encourage you all to look around you, count your blessings and name them one by one and it will surprise you what the Lord has done. The race will never get easier, his grace just seems more immense.
God bless y’all
