Music Im Feeling: MI - Crowd Mentality

... just to name one

I've heard about this MI fellow but I didnt pay much attention until today. I was just prompted to search him out after reading someone's blog and I was blown away by his talent... MI apparently stands for Mr. Incredible... and YES! I agree... He is incredible... If, like me, you havent bothered to check him out before... please please do... I havent been this excited over an artist like this in a minute... and If I really like it... you best believe... he's good! How I wish I had paid attention prior to now... I would have his album now... but I've since placed my order for it...

2009 Prophecies

Sometimes I sit and wonder what I really did in Nigeria for a month... sometimes I feel like I did nothing but it's amazing how full one day can become with so much activity.

I had the opportunity to visit the Redeemed camp while in Nigeria. That place is quite impressive. It's just amazing what God is doing through Pastor Adeboye. I read in the papers that he was listed in Newsweek as one of the 50 most influential people in the world... one who hasnt being plagued by any scandal. To God be the Glory... I pray that God will continue to strengthen him and keep him safe so that he can continue to do that which he has been ordained to do.

I thought I'd share with you, the prophecies that he shared with us at the camp...

Universal
  1. This will be the year of Joy to the wise
  2. As stars @ midnight, the economic gloom coming upon the world will produce some very bright spots. Inspite of the economic crunch some children of God will have fantastic financial breakthroughs
  3. Every year has its ups & downs. 2009 will be no exception. However for the children of God, the Ups will outweigh the downs in magnitude and frequency
  4. Concentrated prayers are needed to reduce the frequency and intensity of natural disasters
  5. Pray against assassination attempts against world leaders

Nigeria
  1. Intensify prayers for the President
  2. Nigeria will be given a new opportunity for peace & tranquility. Pray it wont be wasted
  3. Those who have made money their god, will discover it has strong wings
  4. Problems will drive many back to God with the end result of Heavenly Joy
  5. Pray against suicide among the high & mighty

Thank God for yesterday. I didnt think I would get emotional but I did. I hope for the best for myself... I hope for the best of this great nation... and for my country Nigeria

In your church, what was this year declared as... any shared prophecies?.... do share!

Have a great rest of your week!

O eba! O eba! When shall I see dodo...

...Ireti give us food o
When shall I see ila and egusi
I will never forget pomo!!!!

I just started singing this song today as I thought about what to blog about. I'm back from Nigeria. I thank God for travelling mercies. The last leg of my flight seemed extraaaaaaa long. Maybe because it was the last... vs the 1st leg when I was going to Lagos.

I enjoyed my trip even though I didnt do so so much. I miss home. I miss my mom. It's just different. In Nigeria, whether you want to or not, you're always surrounded by people and I think that's what I miss. There was always someone at the gate and when I asked "Who is it?", the response was always "It's me". LOL. Me who?

I didnt get to eat everything I wanted but I ate out alot! I didnt get to try asun (goat meat suya?) but I did get to eat suya my first night. I didnt get to eat Isi-ewu... maybe next time. I didnt eat so much of my mom's cooking... which I wish I did... gosh... why am I talking about food..

The economic crunch going on in the states doesnt seem to have affected Nigeria at all... except you own stocks and stuff and are heavily into trading you may not even notice. It is hot and humid. It is overpopulated. But it is home and I miss it and I think I'd like to move back... with the right incentives ofcourse... because I dont know that I can stand the heat for too long.

anyways... I just wanted to seize this opportunity to wish all of you a Blessed 2009. May all your hearts desires... even those you cant quite articulate... may they all come to pass according to God's Will.

Amen.
