Birthday Wishes

I guess if I don’t do a blog post today it might be concluded that “I don loss” especially as I have been off line since yesterday, didn’t pick calls and switched off my phones this morning. (Lily, if you are reading this, I saw your missed call, first call of the day, thanks love)
So to avoid misconceptions, blog I will eh? Even if it means that I have to sit outside the house and in a store to post this (network is terrible here, yes, write and post I must.
And I am super fine everyone, thanks for asking.

I have just been preoccupied with other things. Family and all have asked me why I haven’t gone home after exams and why I am still in Lagos, the truth is I wanted to take some time alone to wait on God and that time was supposed to end yesterday.
I had already planned that today Saturday will be spent sightseeing and in Cotonou or at Olomu rock in Ogun State. I mean I am not an extrovert extrovert but I do love to go out + maximize this my single hood… so imagine my surprise

when I asked God which of the places to chose from and He said “none, stay here, stay in me”
Ah, I almost cried. So I won’t have all the cake and stuffs today?
He said “No, but you will have something better. Trust me”

So I am where I am right now, having the “lowest key birthday” I have ever had in my life but also best birthday ever. I think I understand why He said I should stay here.

Let me explain (and you will see the reason why I am explaining this to you later)… my time of waiting on God was to know His will concerning my life-in all aspects. (Yes, that’s more important to me right now than going home where the environment won’t help me achieve this) And the time I’ve spent this morning with God in prayers has been kind of more intense than the whole week put together. And I definitely won’t have been able to do that if I had gone “maximizing my single hood” like I planned to.

So why am I explaining this to you? Because I want you to understand why I want the birthday gift/wish I will ask you for right about now.

Col 4:12.
“Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.”

Col 1.9
“For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding”

Notice the words “perfect”, “complete”, “spiritual wisdom and understanding”, “God’s will”, and “prayers”?
Great. That’s my wish for today. For everyone that reads this post, please pray that I will be filled with all spiritual wisdom&understanding and walk in God’s PERFECT will for my life.(not permissive will)
That’s all I ask and it’s mighty important to me. I’d rather not live than live outside God’s purpose and perfect will for my life.
I’d like that to read this post ten years from now and nod my head like Apostle Paul that “yes, I am running the race that God called me to run”

So Happy birthday to me yeah?
pop_the_top_and_celebrate
Thank you very much for #loving me with prayer.

PS: The above should be no excuse for anyone who wants to send me recharge card (mtn and glo), books,(Joyce Meyer and Francine Rivers books), birthday cake, take me out for lunch/dinner, movie tickets, money(oh I need money), shoes, smart phones, tabs, wig and gown for call to bar, cars and every other kind of ama-mazing gift not to do so. SEND ALL THE SENDABLES.

PPS: The above is also not an excuse for Popsi (I know you are reading this) not to gimme money for my cake oh. I am already dreaming of cake and chicken I will eat when I get home.

Ehen, I haff talk my own.

Love,
Frances.
