I've been so bipolar for about 2 months now! One minute I'm excited and the next minute I feel so sad, hurt, disappointed, pained and totally confused. I could be having a fun convo with a friend via bb/facebook/whatsapp and totally sending all the 'LOL' 'LMHO' but at the same time sobbing about random things I've had to deal with lately. How did I get here? How did things get this bad?

I do miss me, I miss the normal jumpy, friendly and happy May! These days I've become so isolated and churchophobic... it is like I've developed a sudden and weird kind of phobia for people, especially fellow Christians. For some weeksssss I've had to attend both mid-week and Sunday church services via the internet in order to keep sane and also re-examine my walk with God.

I miss having dad around too. Sometimes I think my life would have been so much easier if he was here with me. There are a lot of things on mind, so many questions, so many issues I wish to sort out, things I wish I could change and dramas I wish I never saw, heard or experienced.

Through these all, I've learnt to handle friendships with care because sometimes in life, a friendly face can be your enemy's mask. For someone like me who can be very open, straight-forward and non-secretive with close friends, I've had to learn the difference between love and trust and this was a very very very hard lesson to learn. I've learnt to give room for humans to be humans irrespective of how close they are to me or God... Even though I sometimes like to deceive myself, I know not everyone will treat me the way I would treat them given the same circumstance.

The bible actually says love your neighbour as yourself not trust your neighbour as yourself. Since LadyMay will continue be LadyMay and I can't change the way God made me, I have come to a conclusion to keep on loving people and increasing the number of sugarpies, honeypies, brothers and sisters I have BUT to trust God in them instead. That way it won't hurt so much when they display their human tendencies.   ***Thinking out loud*** Talking about brothers and sisters, trust me when I say I have loads of them in different parts of the world, interestingly I have never met some of them before but they've been a HUGE blessing to me.

So back to the main gist, life has been very dramatic and traumatic lately. The devil has really tried using people I love and care about so much to break me but mercy said no...Thank God for Jesus! I'm actually beginning to see more clearly by the day that there is something quite unique and special about me. If I was very ordinary, the devil won't bother trying to frustrate me at every given opportunity but it's not over until God says it's over. My light will shine no matter the darkness around me! No matter the number of rocks life throws at me, I'll keep standing on Christ the solid rock and after these tests, I'll be back to share my testimonies!

Dear friends, life isn't always going to be easy but when our faith seems to be getting weak we have to make effort to keep standing! Bible says in Ephesians 6:10-13  “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[a] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand

When life upsets you, stand! When you feel disappointed and betrayed, stand! When you feel weary and tired, stand! Keep standing, encourage yourself in the Lord, pray, read the word, sing hymns and keep saying to yourself "The anchor holds", "No power of hell, no scheme of man will ever pluck me from his hand, till He returns or calls me home, here in the power of Christ I'll stand"

When you don't even get what God is up to and why you are still standing, just stand! Your big tests are bringing you big testimonies in due time, keep standing and all will be well.
With love,

The Wonders of Divine Blessings (July 2013 HGS)

THEME: The Wonders of Divine Blessings
MINISTER: Pastor EA Adeboye
TEXT: Genesis 12:1-3

When a man is blessed of God, his friends are blessed and his enemies are in trouble because God says He will bless them that bless him, and curse him that curse him.
Abraham was a blessed man, his servant testified to this in Genesis 24:35 saying “And the LORD hath blessed my master greatly; and he is become great: and he hath given him flocks, and herds, and silver, and gold, and menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses.”

There are two basic definition blessings
1) When all needs are met and something extra comes with it. The bible says in Psalm 23:5 “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.” When the cup is running over, then we are talking of blessings. 

2) A spiritual definition o f blessing is a summon to all forces on earth, in heaven, underneath the earth to come and assist somebody so that the person will succeed and excel.

In Genesis 27:26- 28 when Isaac was going to bless Jacob he said “Therefore God give thee of the dew of heaven, and the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine: Let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee: be lord over thy brethren, and let thy mother's sons bow down to thee: cursed be every one that curseth thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee.”

Isaac first said “God give thee dew from heaven” . What does that mean? According to Zachariah 8:12 when God blesses you with the dew of heaven, your seed will prosper, your vine will be fruitful and your ground shall give increase.

He then went ahead to pray for Fatness of the earth. According to Psalm 36:8, what that means is that you get abundant satisfaction when blessed

What happens when a man is blessed?

Deuteronomy 28:12 says “The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow”
When a man is blessed God sends rain in due season to bless the works of his hands. From today, you will enjoy rain in season in Jesus name. Amen

When a man is blessed, the sun and the moon will co-operate with him. When we say the sun and moon will co-operate with you, it has a deeper meaning which means seasons will co-operate with you. Joshua was a blessed man, in Joshua 10:12-14 , he commanded both the sun and the moon to stand still and they stood still until the people of God had avenged themselves upon their enemies.

When you are blessed, the heavens begin to help you. Heavens include all the beings in heaven e.g angels. For example in Acts 12:5-11, God sent an angel from heaven to go set Peter free the night before he was killed. 

When you are blessed the sun, moon and rain will co-operate with you!

When a man is blessed, forces from heaven will assist him, forces on earth will assist him and even forces underneath the earth will assist him. When God wants to bless you, he can make use of demons. A typical example can be found in 1Samuel 18:14-23. When God was going to announce David, an evil spirit started troubling King Saul, David had to be brought into the palace to play the harp so that the evil spirit could depart from Saul and as a result of this he became the king’s armour bearer.
From today, all your enemies will become a blessing to you in Jesus name. Amen!

Many people don’t know the value of ‘God bless you’. A simple ‘God bless you’ can do great things in your life… When God blesses you, you won’t lack anything because He owns everything.

When God blesses you, you can live long because the bible says in Psalm 91:16
“With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.”

When you are blessed of God, He can satisfy you with joy because in his presence there is fullness of joy.

When God blesses you there will be promotion and victory without a fight .Deut 28:7 says “The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways” When you are blessed God will fight your battles for you.

When God blesses you, there is wealth without sorrow because the bible says in Proverbs 10:22 “The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.”

One of the greatest wonder to divine blessing is that no man , woman , witch, wizard, or even pastor can reverse the blessings of God upon your life. They can talk about you, envy you or criticise you but they can’t temper with your blessings. Joseph is a classic example of a blessed man. He was destined to be great but was sold into slavery, in Portiphar’s house he was blessed but then Portiphar’s wife lied against him and he ended up in prison. Portiphar’s wife helped him, if she had not told those lies, He wouldn't have gone to the prison and if he didn't go to the prison he won’t have met the butler who introduced him to Pharaoh. The famine in the land also helped him because if the great famine didn't happen his family wouldn't have come all the way to Egypt.

In the name that is above every name, people you know and those you don’t know will bless you! Those like you and those who hate you, those who appreciate you and those who criticise you…God will use all of them to help you in Jesus name. All those who are critising you now will one day celebrate you

Nothing goes for nothing! You need to realise that blessings are earned. Bible says in Malachi 3:10 “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”

If you want to be blessed by God, you need to be willing to pay the prize.

When God blesses you , nobody can temper with the blessing and that blessing can only be reversed by God himself. In 1 Samuel 2:30, the LORD said to Eli ”I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed. “

Also when Hezekiah was sick, God sent the prophet to tell him he was going to die but when the King Hezekiah prayed, God decided to add more years to his life. 

If God decides to bless you and you mess up, He can change the blessing into a curse. God said in 1 Samuel 2:30 “them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.” You cannot continue to live in sin and expect God’s blessings upon your life because He is a holy God not a magician. If you are yet to accept Jesus Christ into your life, do so now! If you claim to be a child of God but you’re still living like the child of the devil, confess your sins now and ask God to restore so his blessings don’t become a curse in your life.
