WHY WE NEED TO PRAY FOR OUR HUSBANDS

WHY WE NEED TO PRAY FOR OUR HUSBANDS

Behind every successful man, is a prayerful and resilient wife

…ever heard of this saying? It’s actually a cliché which a lot of us never really pondered on. Hmmm…

If there’s nothing I’ve learnt in my 15 years plus of marriage, I’ve learnt that truly the minute a man and a woman have formed a union before God (called Marriage), the woman is automatically bestowed with an immense power to indirectly ‘rule’ her home but the man takes the glory.

In the early years of marriage, we are completely overwhelmed by all the problems that come with marriage : emotional, financial, social and spiritual (all these will be expantiated in future posts), that we completely forget to do one thing…PRAY!

We spend so much time thinking and rethinking all our challenges, so much so we allow the devil fill our minds with the fear of the unknown. During this trying period, this unspeakable fear may push us to think, say or do things that will push us further away from God. And still, we do not PRAY!

A lot of us want our husbands to be and do a lot of things…but it’s all in our heads and not from our hearts. Because if it was truly from our hearts, we would understand that it’s not by our power or might or our husbands’ power.

It is true that our husbands can say and do things that make us not want to pray for them. They can be inconsiderate, uncaring, abusive, even negligent. But we should not let all these bad attitude block our efforts in building a happy home. God has said in His Good Book that whatever we bind on earth will be bound in heaven and whatever we loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

What we need to understand is that the devil doesn’t like union at all, especially one blessed by God! Get off your ‘shego’ (female ego) and submit all manner of bad behavior to God – alcoholism, laziness, bad temper, domestic abuse, infidelity, family negligence, etcetera etcetera.

I found out much later that marriage is not only for enjoyment ; some people start their marriages with trials and tribulations but later end in joy while some start the marriage with ‘over enjoyment’ but experience some turbulence along the journey. Sometimes our hurt and anger for our husbands does not allow our prayers work.

We are the only ones that have the power to release our husbands from whatever bondage they may be in, not even his mother’s prayer or his sister’s prayer is as powerful as ours. While we pray genuinely for our husbands, we also go through spiritual and emotional changes. Our heart becomes right, we start to unburden and become better wives.

Let us PRAY so that we start to reap the benefits. Let us form the habit of looking to God as the source of all we want to see in our in our husbands and in our marriages.

May God help us all in the bid to be happy in our marriages. Amen.

SISTER-SISTER BONDING|| Just lovin’ it!

I opened up my photo album in my iPad, and I see this picture of my two daughters having a special moment!
The only person who could have taken this shot is my ex-maid (Yeah, I laid her off…just had too! Don’t want to go into details for now #traumatized) How she got hold of my iPad will forever remain a mystery! I didn’t even bother asking my kids, because an argument will definitely ensue! #CantDeal

Anyways, the cute thing about this picture, is that these girls only look cute together when they aren’t at each other’s throat half of the time! …I hope someone with daughters understands what I mean? *sigh*

But what I can’t clearly understand is why my 2nd daughter is on kitchen table with practically no clothes on!

Anyways… It’s nice to know that there are days when they don’t have ‘fights’

REAL TEST OF FAITH

Na wah! What could be more trying than this?

A pastor, Gentry Eddings, in North Carolina and his wife, Hadley, tragically lose their newborn son 2 days after they lose their 2 year old in a car accident.

Why do bad stuff happen to good people? Unfortunately, it’s not in our place to question God. I guess He needs to know if Gentry and his family truly love and worship him…after all, he’s a jealous God.

If I’m not mistaken in God’s awesomeness, if the couple pass this test of faith (and I hope they do), He will probably bless them with quadruplets.

Let’s just keep praying for them.

FEELING GOOD RIGHT NOW!

Good morning peeps!

It feels really good to be back.  I’m finally ready to narrate my experience with my last supposed fantastic maid. Wow! That experience kinda left me moderately traumatized, so much so that when I hear the word ‘maid’, I squirm! Lol!

I’m so glad to be back from my exhilarating vacation, save for the “No water – no electricity – no fuel” situation! Really?! *Nigeria should be arrested*

It still beats me black and blue how leaders of this great nation can be comfortable with the present state of the country! *Seems to me like a bad case ‘fecal incontinence’ *… In which case,  Nigeria can’t control its bulls&#t.
#GodDey

Meanwhile I’ve seriously been thinking of a theme for my write ups of today but couldn’t come up with any :-(… So I’m just gonna go with the flu of everything that inspires me to connect with you guys. 🙂

Do have an awesome day ahead.

MY KIDS WANT A DOG!

image

Isn't this doggie cute?

Hell No!!

We’ve been through this countless of times, and I’m not giving into their requests… MmmmMm..Nope.

It’s not like I’m trying to be mean but frankly speaking that’s like giving me some extra work to do. I have some conditions to hubby and kids, but they have failed to fulfill them. Okay, you tell me if what I ask for them to do before bringing the dog into my house is much:
1. Build a kernel before you get any dog.
2. Get a dog trainer because I ain’t having an unruly doggie in my house!
3. Increase my monthly allowance by 60%… The dog will eat na! *wink*
4. The dog they will need to get, that I want will never grow… As in I want those dogs that are really close to the ground, that never grow. *That way I don’t remember it’s a doggie*
5. My hubby should draw up a timetable of how they will take turns in caring for and walking the dog…excluding me! *Hehehe*

So do you guys think I’m asking for much? Nah!… Didn’t think so.

You know my hubby had made an arrangement for one without my knowledge,  but thank goodness, I came right on time to see it being delivered to my door step! I shrieked as soon as I saw my friends bring the puppy over. Luckily, my kids hadn’t seen it, so I hurriedly pleaded with them to take the cute doggie back. It really broke my heart that such a cute doggie couldn’t stay… It will just die of hunger, because my peeps in the house were not ready for the doggie… And definitely not me!

This size of doggie isn't bad as well

A kernel just had to be made… Can’t deal with dog s%#t around my house, not now, not ever!

Now…everyone ‘hates’ me in the house!… Well, whatever!
