Letter to Fear, Anxiety and Worry

fearrr

Dear Fear – Anxiety and Worry,

It’s been a long time coming and I hope this meets you well.

I’ve borne you for far too long and it’s not good for my health in any way, this part I know that you know because you always come by just to mock me. It so happens to be your favourite past time – the voice in my head mocking me!

In all of my days past, you have painted me the lie in a beautiful big portrait of how I’m no good and how I’ll amount to nothing, of how I’ll be blown away by the wind and forgotten like the falling star – no one ever cares if it was feasting with the galaxy kings before its fall; in the end it’s only a shimmering flash of light seen streaking across the sky.

Letter to My Unborn Daughter

Dear Daughter,

I wonder what you will look like…

Will you inherit your grandma’s long hair?

Will you smile with your eyes like I do?

Will you be musically inclined like your grandad or will you play sports like your great-grandad?

I’m chuckling at the thought of you being short like me. Either way, you’ll always be perfect in my eyes – fearfully and wonderfully designed by the most exquisite Creator.

I don’t even know what your name will be yet, but one thing is certain; I will love you with all my heart.

You should know by now that though there is a lot of good in the earth, there is also evil. Continue reading

Dear Future Me

Dear Future Me,

Watch yourself!

Yeah, you better watch yourself ’cause it seems you have forgotten how far you’ve come. I’m writing this letter to you hoping you will read it and receive sense. I know you don’t like reading lengthy texts, well that’s why I made it lengthy. If you like, use a whole week to read through, just ensure that you get to the end because I have hidden a secret therein that will set you at ease in every aspect of your current life and will cause everything to work out for you.

Is it true that you have developed pride on your inside? You are beginning to think all you have and all you are is all you. Have you forgotten how much you prayed for all Continue reading

P.S I decided to publish two letters today because I couldn’t put up yesterday’s letter due to some network issues! Have fun reading! Cheers!

Hello Babies,

I am sure you are good. It is your mummy only that I do not know you and you are yet to know me. Sweet, I am planning on having all six of you and I hope it will come to pass. I cannot wait to hold you in my arm and her you call me Mom.

I can envision your smile. Hmmm….so sweet. I am also wondering who you would look like, me or your Dad. For the boys please look like your Dad and the girls, of course, Mom has the best look ever so please feel free to be a reflection of me. Now to your Dad, I do Continue reading

A Letter to the Children That Will Call Me Father

download

Dear children,

I am Tobi, your Father. You must be guessing why I would introduce myself to you since you’re already aware that this piece of writing was directed to you. Well, my re-introduction with my name, describing myself as your father isn’t a mistake, but it is a planned, deliberate and conscious effort. Just as the thought of bringing you to into this world was a planned, deliberate and conscious effort by I and my wife, who is your mother. You are not a joke, you are not a mistake, and you are a blessing from God, our Father. So don’t let anyone or anything tell you otherwise.

There is one important fact I need to share with you. This fact has been tested and proven by me and by those before me, and I will advise you to take this seriously. If need be, this fact is more important than anyone, including your parents, your family, and even your earthly life. Continue reading

Jesus!

Hello guys, sorry for my inability to post the continuation of the series ‘My Name is Love and I’m not Stupid'(FAMILY). I promise to do that next week. Here’s a featured piece by Nwokolu Obarianenu.

Do you know why we keep following Jesus? It is because He knows where He is going. He knows how to get there.
He is the only way there, and we like where He is going.
Even more than that, His love draws us to Him.
We love Jesus so much, we’ll do anything He asks.
Why do we love Him? It is not because He threatens us with a big hammer, saying, “if you sin, I will kill you”. He doesn’t say that. He says,  if you sin, I am faithful and just to forgive you”. (see 1 John 1:9)
Isn’t it wonderful to follow someone like that? Every time you slip, He picks you and brushes you off. He doesn’t talk about your past at all.
We submit to Him because we love and He loves us.

The GOD Chit-Chat

Me: Hey God! What’s Up!

GOD: Hmmm…see this mortal asking me what’s Up!

Me: Ha! Dad leave that thing O! Is this not how we always talk.
After all you said I should be free in your presence.

God: See you going all jittery because I called you mere mortal as if that’s not what you are.
Lol!
I’m always good you should know that.
All I do here is watch out for you.

Me: You got me there you know.
And yes I know I am a mere mortal but when you begin to flex your muscle calling me ‘mere mortal’ it’s like I did something wrong.
And you can like to punish someone for doing wrong.

GOD: You really do not know me well. I punish people that sin because I can’t stand it but Jesus always comes to me on their behalf so mostimes I just have mercy on them.
It’s my nature to be merciful. It’s part of my bio.
Infact if I want to punish you for all your sins ehn, you will be dead and gone.
You would have been lodging six feet below.

Me:God Forbid!

God: Ehen, you see now how faithful and merciful I am.

Me: Yes O!
You too much. Thank you.

God: You are welcome.

Me: These people will not stop making noise about the importance of being grateful for 1st this and 1st that.

God: Which people?

Me: Is it not these church people? “It’s a season of first…Thank God for the grace and privilege of firsts…”, that’s what they have been saying from the first day of this year.
They are just being a nuisance.
Can you just imagine that.

God: *shaking his head and rolling his eyes*
I can not imagine anything. You men will not cease to amaze me. Just listen to you.
Church people abi?
What are you?
So you are tired of thanking me, because of what?
Ehennn, as in how?

Me: It’s not like that…

God: Will you shut up there. Do you know how many people had plans for this year and yet died without seeing the new year.
So thanking me is now stress to you abi.
Okay! Let me hold back this my free fresh air.

Me: *Prostrating and shouting with all my might*
Argghhhh! Baba God! Please Oh!
You want me to die or is it that you want to kill me?
Please Oh! I will thank you. In fact, with my hands and legs up I thank you. I Repent!

God: Good! Better!
Continue at it till you breathe your last. Always be Thankful!

Me: Wow! That was close.
*Always have an Attitude of Gratitude!
*Always be Thankful!
