MARRIAGE FARCE(Revised Edition).

I did see a movie where a partner told the other thus:

“People who get married are not to be trusted, because if you are legitimately happy you have no need to make big show outta it in the heck of marriage. They do it because they are insecure”.

Now permit me to disagree “heads down”.

Spouses are no weaklings. In fact a decisive step into marriage is a bold, brave step of faith which weaklings will be wary of considering. The proceeds inherent in a marriage setting really might not be all rossy. Talk about the kids,putting up with Learning and unlearning habits(some spouses can really be annoying),in law-palava and lots more.

(interestingly). Marriage on its own can be stressful not to talk of all these combining factors. And surely,the going can get tough and only the insecure ones pull out when the heat is much.

This of course has an exception,cases of life and death; if the kind spouse no wan make u dey alive…. I’d suggest FLEE!!! That can’t be God wanting your head. Stop the deceit.

Finally, besides, all the warped, bastardized ideas in the form of pre / post wedding cohabitation here and there, Marriage is a divine affair which has a stake with divinity. God instituted Marriage and he pulls it on to finish. Distrusted fellas may not deem it fit to let God into there marital affairs. Lil wonder you have shadows of husbands and wives up and down. Such people are not to be trusted, too.

Married???
Congrats for taking the plunge. Never take your eyes off Jesus.

Unmarried???
Chill and decisively take that step!

Either ways, HML!

TALES OF ELERU,- THE VILLAGE LOVER. PART FOUR.

As it happened, Eleru, on the day Halison was to return to the city, saw him off. They drove up until they reached the edge of the pathway joining the major road; Halison brought the vehicle to a halt.

“Hmmmmh! So, this is where I’d say goodbye?” Eleru began, blinking at the thought of placing a hand on Halison’s shoulder.

“No baby!, Don’t mention it at all. I’d just be gone for a while. Need to see to some management in my company. Besides Christmas is around the corner, Ok.” Pleaded Halison, reassuringly; now placing his right hand on hers.

“It’s alright…. Ermmmh, did you tell my Dad anything?” She asked, disengaging her hand from his.

“Your Dad????” Halison paused, trying to recall.

“Oh yea! I was only making my intentions known. That’s all.”

“Your intentions???” Quizzed Eleru. “For him or…..?”

“You of cause…”, cutting her off. Hali went on. “Eleru, I love you so much and I would want our both families be as one. You know what I mean….?”

“But you never told me all these, firsthand, why?”

“I’m sorry dearie. But does it change anything? I love you; and that’s all that matters to me right now.” Hali leaned forward to engage her lips, but Eleru shook her head in disapproval.

“It’s OK.” Hali gave up. “I understand.” Fetching his purse, he brought out a huge pack of naira notes. Eleru’s eyes widened…

“Have this for now, and don’t hesitate to call on me whenever you need help…”

“Hei! Chi m oh! Mbaanu! Ife nke a erikazinu! All these for me?” She asked?

“Yes my love. This is just a tip. I, really am gonna spoil you. Trust me! I love you.”

Without thinking, the words came forth from Eleru’s mouth.

“I love you, too, Hali… Chei! My God will bless you…abi e don bless you already.”

“It’s alright Nwanyioma. Gotta run now.” Leaning forward and giving her a peck on the cheek. “I’d miss you so much, Eleru. And don’t forget that I LOVE YOU!” Halison stressed.

“Love you again and again, Nwokeoma.” Came her final response, as she unlocked the car’s door.

Ngwanu, ije oma. See you soon. I’d always remember to call from time to time.” She slammed the door as Halison waved. She waved back, holding the pack of naira notes closely to her chest. She waved till she could see the car trunk no more; and with the look on her face, it’s evident our dolly girl has fallen from a great height.

Overwhelmed with joy, she bounced off towards home…

“Eleru!”

“Mama”, She answered from inside, making her way to the backyard where her mum sat, picking beans.

“Eheeen, nwa m”, started Ma Eleru. ” You know Halison will be going back to the city tomorrow… I’d like to to carry some foodstuffs to his house this evening. Tell him your mother asks him to fare well and manage this token from us.”

“Haba Mama!” Eleru started. “You’ve already gone so much into this young man”.

Taaah! Kpuchie onu gi! I makwanu nke a na-ako.” Her mum interrupted. “Didn’t you just call him a “young man”? Wait till you pass by the village square and meet a wedding feast of Hali and some other maiden… I taagbuo onwe gi n’afufu”.

Hehehehei!!!!! Mama, Halison never said he wants to marry me oh… Bikokwa”.

Ohhhh! Leave that one for me, Eleru”, cut in Ma Eleru. “Come and take these stuffs to Halison’s… And get my goodwill message delivered properly oh…”

THE PRAISE GENERATION.

Still on ‪#‎WhyWeWorship‬; I got started this morning during study when I came across some relevancies.

Dearest Worshipper, it’s of great importance that we don’t just get active without a cause. The move of The Spirit of Worship, ongoing in our time isn’t a product of a somewhat, ‘volcanic eruption’.
My dear, to God’s glory, we were  anticipated and heavily expected. The old testament folks, who grasped this revelation wished to be a part of this move.

David saw us coming;

“Let this be written for a future generation, that a people not yet created may praise the Lord”. Psalms 102:18.

You see, not that they couldn’t do it. They tried. But all their acts of worship were summed as A SHADOW OF THE REAL THING TO COME. What ever they did was OUTSIDE, VIELED.

(MSG)2 Corinthians 3:9
“…Bright as that old government was, it would look downright dull alongside this new one..”

Funny enough, Luke 1:10 has it that, “when the time for the burning of incense came, all the assembled WORSHIPPERS were praying OUTSIDE”.

They couldn’t get INSIDE,yet. So, we, still, were coming…

Zechariah, at the birth of his son, also saw us coming;
“to show mercy to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant; the oath he swore to our father Abraham,- A CLEAN RESCUE FROM THE ENEMY CAMP, SO WE CAN WORSHIP WITHOUT A CARE IN THE WORLD”. Luke 1:72-74.

The incarnate Jesus spelt out the setting-in of this move to the Samaritan woman at the well;
“yet a time is coming, and has now come…”

Jesus spoke in faith of what was to come, when the promise of the spirit of truth shall become manifest. For he said;
“It is not where we worship that counts, but HOW we worship,- is our worship spiritual and real? Do we have the Holy Spirit’s help?”

That was it. We were about to be birthed, incubated by the Spirit of worship. Little wonder Jesus told Nicodemus;
“unless a person submits to this original creation,-God’s spirit sweeping over the face of the waters; he won’t have the kingdom(both now and later).
