I love you

More Than Anything
Lamar Campbell and Spirit of Praise

I lift my hands in total adoration unto You
You reign on the throne for You are God and God alone
Because of You my cloudy days are gone
I can sing to You this song
I just want to say that I love You more than anything

Love me in Your Arms
You were my shelter from the storm
When all my friends were gone
You were right there all along

I never knew a love like this before, Oh
I just want to say that I love You more than anything

I Love You Jesus
I worship and adore You
Just want to tell
Lord, I Love You more than anything

In my quite zone and so I have this song on replay in my head you can listen on youtube to it here

Time to wise up

Do you know a wise person? Are you wise?

Since I was 16 this is my first summer without a job or internship, I always had something to do and thinking back the other day I remembered been 16 years old and getting paid $16.00 an hour just to play bingo, go fishing, watch movies, attend baseball games with clients from the nursing home. I spent countless hours just sitting and interacting with the clients as they share their past and experience. At the moment it was just a job but after that summer I realize how much i learned from the men and women I worked with. Sadly today we live in a culture that reveres the youth and the older generation are kept away and ignore in nursing homes/group homes. These men and women have experience life the good and the bad but they don't get to share that wisdom they have.

A while back my teacher asked what is wisdom? I blurted out with 200% conviction in me that "Wisdom is the principal thing." I remembered him laughing right after I said it. Till today he never forgot and occasionally use it to joke around with me. It was the bible definition that I have been thought many years ago and it was almost like defining faith as the act of faith.

I find it somewhat irritating when many confuse wisdom with Knowledge. I got the definitions of wisdom and knowledge below from the oxford dictionary
Wisdom - the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment.
Knowledge - facts, information, and skills acquired by a person through experience or education.
Mathematically speaking, Knowledge = correct information + understanding (No matter how many books you have read it is nothing without understanding) and being able to apply that knowledge = wisdom.

Now the elderly may not have even attended high school during their age but there is still a good number of wise ones among and at the same time there are people that may have bachelor, masters or even PhD and the term wise cannot be use to describe them.

2 Types of wisdom?
James 3:13-18

Worldly wisdom- verse 14 describe it as full of  bitter jealously and selfish ambition in the hearts, this wisdom is earthly, unspiritual, devilish.  Earthly wisdom i would say is the one that we gain from school or any form of education. This is great but may not be an all round wisdom. The devilish and unspiritual wisdom I will say include that type of wisdom to do evil things in a smart way e.g 419/feudalism.

Wisdom from above - This is the greatest wisdom and it is a gift from the Lord. Now this wisdom from  according to James 3:17 - "... is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincereThis wisdom kept Daniel safe in the lions den, it turn Joseph from prisoner to minister and basically distinguish you from several people around you. I mean I have definitely read blogs by people that I'm just like wow this is indeed God's wisdom.

How do you get this wisdom?

It clearly cannot be bought rather it is a Divine endowment from God. It is one of the gift of the holy spirit and if you desire it you can definitely get it. "If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you - James 1:5"

"When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom" (Proverbs 11:2)

If you said yes to my first two questions of this post let me leave you with one more question. It is the wisdom from above or below?

Have a great week!

Much loves

I really do appreciate each an every readers and followers of my blog as I continue on the journey to learning and writing and teaching myself.

What's in my bag?

I guess I can say I'm the last one to do this meme..been in NC for two weeks now and kinda neglected this place with all the fun fare around here. Thanks to Sisi Yemmie, and Miss YNC,  for the tag.

I'm currently on break which means I'm always on the go so I really like to travel hand free so messenger bags is what I've been carrying since march and have them in different colors because they must match a clothing item. But yeah this one is an orange one from H & M

A- Pen, highlighter pencil and notebook is a must have, you never know when you need to write something
B - Dark Kiss body mist
C - Imari perfume-  love the smell
D. Dove hand lotion-  with every handwash comes moisturization
E -  pair of earring - just in case one fall off or I forget to put one on. This particular one is my Ankara stud recently purchase from Tionni
F - Wallet for money, cards, and what not
G- Hair clips for keeping hair on point at all time
H - Kleenex :)
I - Brush and Blush, as you already now Mz YSU is omo yellow so I tend to blush very often so I have to keep this with me
J - Revlon, and crush lip gloss
K - sony camera and charger - pictures are worth a thousand words
L - My HTC HD 2 charger - you know when you have the big phones with a million app going on at the same time you never know when the battery will die so I'm always prepared
M - Ipod Touch and headphone - filled with Nigerian song and different genre of Christian music, my ipod is mostly for my daily ride because I prefer my music to the radio. I am also not really a fan of wearing headphones on the street just because I like to be aware of my surrounding but there are those awkward moments when you need it.
N - Lastly the most important thing in my bag is my Bible. I'm not an early riser at all so I  usually have just enough time to shower, pray and maybe breakfast so in between the day I get to digest some fresh word into my system. I like to highlight or underline my Bible during study so i rarely use my ipod bible version
