Memoirs of God

Hi everyone, it’s been quite a while and I am even too ashamed to apologize so I will just go straight to the post. I pray the Holy Spirit gives everyone reading this the revelation of this message. But sincerely, I really am sorry. I hope you find a place in your heart to forgive me. 🙂
Thanks! Now let’s get to business;

***

For a while now the Holy Spirit has been urging me to write this but then I kept procrastinating it. The subject I’m about to write about is a very touchy one and I do not apologise if some get offended by it.

    ‘THE CHURCH’

This has been on my mind for a very long time. I have always felt like there was something wrong. Many people have missed it when it comes to this subject, me included. Children are being born into a revised notion of what the church is all about. I sat in a bus one day and thought to myself, what the church is really about.

I have been doing a study on the books of the bible written by Paul. He is one of my favourite bible characters though. The very first attitude of the church that jumped at me from his books is the attitude of togetherness. The church then was a place where you could run to, a place where you could find help. Paul always wrote letters to the church to find out about their wellbeing, admonish and encourage them. This gave me an understanding of what the church should be.

Often times people think the church is about the building or the facilities or the location. It is a known fact that many have read in the bible that the church is the body of Christ but very few understand what it really means. I would like to share my own revelation of what the church should be.

First I would say the church is people and their hearts which they have handed over to Christ. The church Christ envisioned is a group of people who know him (have an intimate friendly relationship with him) and who through their knowledge of him manifest who they are in him. I have seen so much hypocrisy in the church today, the church is hurting, Christ can’t recognise the people he died for.

When I think of the church I think of light; I see a people who cherish God and would do anything for him. I don’t see a group of people coming to listen to the preacher hoping he preaches the word to matches their situation. I don’t see a group of people who lift up their hands and open their mouths in worship but go back into the world like normal people. And that’s the issue.; many think we are normal but we are not, we are spirit beings so we can’t be normal, we are supernatural beings!

After reading the sixth (6th) chapter of John, I realised the true essence of Christianity is not in doing good or going to a place called church but its true essence is our belief in the son Jesus. I know someone might say but I know that but I dare say to you that you don’t. Many don’t even know what belief is. My revelation of belief is this; Jesus is all I need to live. He is my very life and existence. I can’t do anything without him. I am entirely useless without him.

The church needs this understanding that Jesus is the center of it all. People are being choked up by activities; being a chorister, an usher, a tech personnel, giving to people, going for meetings. No one has stopped to think; is this really it? Many want to work for God but find it hard to walk with him. I dare say to you today that once you can walk with God automatically you begin to work for him. Your doing good doesn’t qualify you because grace through the death of Jesus has done that.

As simple as Christianity is, people still miss it (me inclusive). People don’t miss it because it’s difficult but because people have come up with their notion of what God requires of them. I dare say to you that all God requires from you is your heart. Once he has your heart then your well on your way to living the life he called you to.

This is a wakeup call for the church. God told me and a lot of other people that he is raising an end time army. One in which the world would recognize as God’s own people. The intention of God is for the church to be the help the world needs.

I would like for everyone to go back and meditate on Matt 6:33. After light came to me through this scripture it changed my whole perspective. Christ said many are seeking the gifts forgetting that once they have the giver they have it all (paraphrasing it though)

Over the next few weeks, I would be sharing some of the things the Holy Spirit has revealed to me in my walk with him. I charge you today to go back to the basics; know for yourself what Christ requires and begin to drive that. Share with someone the love of Christ. That’s what we are about, we are a new generation. One called by God to restore old cities and build up waste places.

Remain blessed……xx
Love

MAE

It has been a while and I sincerely apologise for the silence. I have been busy with my finals but still it’s not a good enough excuse. It’s good to be back. I pray that for grace to continue.
It’s been a while not just with this but even with God. I have been distant from him in the place of personal time with him. I praise him and pray in the midst of the saints but then I get back into my closet and I say nothing to him. Even when he tries to speak, I just always seem too busy for him. How unfair and callous……..
I don’t know what this is about but I know I can’t do without him and the earlier I maintain a stable relationship with him, the better for me. Well despite all of this, I have learnt something that has stuck with me. I have found a new trust in God. I am at a point where my faith in God is unshakeable. A lot has happened to me in the past few weeks. My life has taken turn on so many levels.
My final exams ended last week. I had my design jury (something like a defense) last week also. It was nearly a disaster according to the words of my assessors. We were given time to finish up our works and I just knew it had to be my father in heaven at work. My week started with external defense which frustrated me on all levels. I was tossed back and forth which was not cool at all but God helped me keep my calm despite the fact that I neglected him.
One thing kept ringing in my ears as I laid on my bed two nights ago to work. The voice was so clear and direct, ‘you can’t praise/serve God only when it is convenient’.
The highlight of today’s post is this statement, ‘you really can’t serve God only when it is convenient’. He means much more than we can ever comprehend yet alone explain. We need to begin to give God our all and our very best. He alone is worthy of it.
Someone tweeted this and I‘ll like to share it with you,

‘Spiritual maturity is desiring God’s presence more than his presents’

Remain blessed……………….xx
Love,
Mae

I apologise sincerely for not posting under the series ‘Memoirs of God’ on Sunday as promised. I have no excuse whatsoever, so please forgive me 😀

Anyways, today’s post was meant for Sunday but still enjoy and be inspired.

********************************************

 

I bless God for the gift of another day……

not just another day but a day where I am hale and hearty and surrounded by the people I love and most importantly a day with the most important one, the Holy Spirit. I woke up today with the usual habit of having to drag myself out of bed. I slept quite late even though I knew there church was today………

I woke up to the usual sound of my hall officer’s voice screaming for us to wake up. Well this gist is not the highlight of today’s post…….moving on It slipped my mind already that Sundays are usually the determining points of my week. I went to the service without anything in my heart……..

I could be quite forgetful. I thank God for the best friend I have, he always reminds me one way or another…..and his way of reminding me today was by using my pre-service meeting. I opened up my heart to him during that meeting and told him I was not leaving the service without a touch. This God is just too kind, sweet and faithful…..just when u think all hope is lost, he shows up in the most unpredicted way to answer you.

I had been having issues with my project; I got stuck just at the concluding part. The Holy Spirit had been giving me a nudge to talk to him about it but as we humans are, I chose not to talk to him about it. I just had this thought in my head that really would he be able to help me? Oh how we belittle this awesome fellow Jesus asked his father to give us. Just in this service, like he was talking to me directly from the pulpit with his eyes on me, he said he is about to visit someone concerning her project.

The charge for today’s service was about the anointing.

There’s something about the anointing oil. My chaplain made a statement of truth, ‘it’s only when you get understanding that your life will change’. It struck me there and then that I had heard about the anointing but I dint understanding the mystery behind it. I thank God for today’s service because my God of wonders visited me via his anointing. 1sam16:13 says, ‘so Samuel took the horn of the oil and anointed David in the presence of his brothers, and from that day on the Spirit of the Lord was upon him in power. Samuel then went to Ramah’.

The rhema I got in this service came from this verse. It hit me then that as long as I am anointed and since the anointing carries the spirit of the Lord therefore I carry the Spirit of the Lord. Nothing and absolutely nothing is impossible for me to do and become. There’s absolutely nothing like being in the presence of God and him opening your eyes to the secrets of his kingdom. I forgot to add that the Holy Spirit made me smile today by reminding me that he knows everything.

All we all need to do is ask and he will share with us what he knows. Remain blessed…….xx

MAE

Memoirs of God by Mae

Ever felt like you’re alone in your own world. Ever felt like no one would understand no matter how much they tried. Ever felt like something is wrong. Ever felt you haven’t done enough. Ever felt like giving up cause u think you can’t do it, you have given your best already. Ever get this empty feeling like you don’t matter. Ever felt like no matter how much you try it doesn’t get better. Ever felt like losing hope because no matter which way you go it’s not working. Ever felt like you’re not living you just exist. Ever felt like your dreams are more than you. Ever felt like time is running out and nothing is happening. Ever felt like you’re only talking it and never living it.

Well i felt all of these and much more. I felt i didn’t know which way to go cause no matter which way i went i just got stuck. I try my hands on so many things yet none gave me joy. I was confused cause my life no longer made sense to me. It felt like I was losing it and there was no one to turn to. It felt like there was absolutely no one to share this with. It felt like my troubles were eating me up. It felt like i had so many people around yet no one. It felt like everyone was running and I was standing wondering which way to go. It felt like this and it felt like that. I couldn’t even find the words to describe those feelings. They just came and when they did i just felt numb. I felt empty. I felt down. I felt indifferent. I felt lifeless.

All of those emotions and more were things I felt at a stage in my life that I couldn’t explain. I am sure you might be wondering why all of these emotions for a young girl like me.

But then something changed. I no longer feel all of those things. I am now a hundred percent sure that someone cares. Someone greater than my imaginations. Someone my mind cant understand or comprehend. Someone my mind drifts to when i feel all of this. He said to me i will stand by you when no onez there. I will love you till the end of time. It might not seem like it but i am working out something great in you and through you. You are perfect he says. You are the most precious amongst my treasures. The very hairs on your head i know. You are engraved on my palm. I know your very make up. Those days when am down, i lay on my bed cover myself up and have a good cry but at the end i smile cause i know this person cares. I smile knowing there is hope. I smile knowing i have a friend who is greater than even a brother. I smile knowing am not alone.

He didn’t promise that i won’t fall but he said he will be there to catch me when i fall. He dint promise that it will be easy but he said he will be by my side through the tough times. He dint promise me a smooth road but he said he ll carry me through the rough ones. He din’t promise me the whole world but he gave me him, who owns the whole world.

Sometimes i cry at the thought of the love he has for me because i don’t understand it. Sometimes am afraid i can never love him like he loves me. Sometimes am afraid i will always let him down. Sometimes am afraid am not up to the standard.

But at the end i remember, he is not looking for a perfect person, he is not looking for the person who has no wrong, he is not looking for the person who has a hold of everything. All he asks is for a heart to believe him and then trust him. A heart to love him not by itself but by his own love. That’s all he asks.

That He, is God(father, son and spirit) and he is the smile beneath my smile.

My name is Ajayi Mojisola Elizabeth but on here I will go by the name Mae……don’t bother about how I came about the name. It has romance attached to it tho. I will be a regular on here sharing with you my daily experiences with God (the Holy Spirit). I hope an insight into my life will give someone hope to hang on. Remain blessed………xx

Letter to the Holy Spirit

Today, we welcome a Guest writer, Miss Moji Ajayi (@ladyingenous).

This was supposed to be posted on the 14th (Val’s day) actually but some technical difficulties caused the delay but then its never too late.

For those of you who missed our Val’s day special, you can see it here  —->>> https://damstylee.wordpress.com/2013/02/14/would-you-be-my-valentine/

Today’s post though is an endearing one, one people really need to see so please comment and share them when you’re done.

Bless! 😀

There is absolutely nothing special about today but then the world has tagged it someday- Val’s day. I don’t understand what it’s about or why it was tagged so but then it’s to celebrate love. I would normally have said, really? there’s a day to celebrate this?

However, I might not understand the essence of this day being tagged as love’s day but then I understand what love is. I don’t understand it because I have seen so much of it in my world (obviously not) but I understand it because it’s all I see when I see you. Before now I used to try to describe or define what this love is about but I never got a hang of it. I stand this day thinking of you and you alone and then deep in my heart I know what love is. Sweet Holy Spirit I may not be able to boast of how much my love is for you but then I can boast of how much your love is for me.

I remember the days I’ll feel messed up and then I’ll run into my closet, call on you and just cry out my eyes. You will be right there watching me till am done, then you’ll just say these soothing words, “it will be well, I love you”. Immediately, amidst my tears, a bubble of laughter builds up in me and then I’ll burst out laughing. It seems kinda crazy and absurd but then it’s you my love, so am not surprised. I feel silly for crying but then you make me see why I needed to cry. It then became a part of me to just run into my closet, cry, hear you speak those words I love so much and then laugh and smile. There are days I get into trouble and then I just call your name and whisper to you to get me out. All of a sudden, my little whisper to you in time of trouble became my element of escape.

I remember coming to you as a wounded, rejected, inferior and depressed soul. You took me in, wrapped your arms around me and then I could feel my heart and soul begin to heal. “I might not have anyone here on earth” a thought that slips into my head and then a whisper from you, “you are the apple of my eyes and I love you” comes in to smash that thought into pieces. I get drunk and crazy with your love. People look at me and wonder how does she do it. They say, ‘how is she living through this’ but little do they know that this little girl right here is being carried by one sweet, loving and awesome person. You hold my heart and make it impossible for anyone to pierce through.

Sweet Holy Spirit you have my heart and will always have it. I am not all perfect, my make-up gets smeared, sometimes I look bloated, my hair gets messy, I am sometimes clumsy but then, I stop to think of you and then I see the beauty and perfection in me. I always want to hold your hand cause I feel perfectly safe with you. I love you sweet Holy Spirit with the soul of my heart (don’t even know what that means). I love you not because I have the power to but I love you because you have given me the power to. How ironic is our love relationship. You love me and at the same time give me the power to love. I mess up and run away and then you draw me back into your arms.

This, my love, is one relationship I’ll never trade for anything. it’s the relationship that will last for all eternity. You will remain my first, one and only.

Yours in love,

MAE
