A Pleasing Sacrifice

Verse 1
All that I am, all that I have
I lay them down before you, oh Lord
All my regrets, all my acclaims
The joy and the pain, I'm making them yours 

Lord, I offer my life to you
Everything I've been through
Use it for your glory
Lord I offer my days to you
Lifting my praise to you
As a pleasing sacrifice
Lord I offer you my life 

Verse 2 

Things in the past, things yet unseen
Wishes and dreams that are yet to come true
All of my heart, all of my praise
My heart and my hands are lifted to you 


What can we give
That you have not given?
And what do we have
That is not already yours?
All we possess
Are these lives we're living
That's what we give to you, Lord 


At the dawn of a new year in my life this is the song I have been echoing in my head all night long.

It feels good to know God and thirst for more of him.

My life isn’t mine it belongs to God and he decides what to do with it whenever.

The song mirrors exactly how I feel and I am really thankful for the Grace to be alive to see another year.

Atofaratibioke, You are worthy of all my Praise.

*Clears throat*

Been MIA for a while, I know. My hands are full, I have been reading, plus I have a new addiction I could stay with all day long and night sef (keep guessing). About the reading, I just finished “Americanah” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I loved it. My best part was the last page (pg. 477), yeah;I gave you the page number to go read it. If the book had ended otherwise ... maybe I will still like it sha. It was a perfect finish for me. Very unafrican. Not the usual abeg we can manage kinda situation. Facing facts, seeing through circumstances and acting accordingly. It’s a western way of making decision but really, I like it in this situation.

Meanwhile, I remembered I wrote three (3) short novels when I was in probably year 1 or 2, university days. I got inspired by my self appointed editor to go dig out the manuscript (yeah, I can call it that). However, I found only one.  It was covered with dust, rat and cockroach had pee on it but they didn’t eat it sha, I wonder why. There was also a poem book (No comment on that)

Anyway, I read through and I was really impressed with myself. I think I could write better back then. So I decided to give you the benefit of reading here in parts (cos its too long for a single post) before I publish (that is if I decide to).

What is going on with all my gadgets? My note is in intensive care unit (thank God for warranty). My hard drive is ...ok let me convince myself its the cable acting up or else...I cant just imagine yet. All my movies*sadface*

Like I said in my last post, June is usually an eventful month for me. More events added already. I am looking forward to surprises as well.AK, stop laughing at me cos I think the new Monday is now Tuesday.

Happy birthday in arrears to Mamacita, Moi Big sis & Bro J, Big C hooking up in a couple of months and in advance to Rikky (Big Hug), Gbemsoll and lots more I cant grab at the moment. Wishing us all long life and prosperity in good health and sound mind.

KT dearie, I miss u so much, even if I pretend not to. Come back quick.

I have plans for today. To Start it in God’s Presence. Thank God it’s a Tuesday and I am on vacation. Yay!!!. Was down before the start of this vacay but dammit, I am back in full force. God is on my side. Activities lined up ke; all plans must be actualized no matter how small.

Still in the spirit with the song (Bishop Clarence McClendon version).

Love y’all.
