Count Your Blessings!

Hello beautiful people, compliments of the season…as we enter into the season of celebrations, holidays, hooking ups and plenty jollof rice and chicken, let’s remember who gave us the privilege to see another end of the year rejoicing. Jesus is the reason for the season

Last Sunday, we had this estimation of all attendance and every other activities for the year as compared to last year and discovered everything was “double double”
We were all glad since it was goodnews and obviously the Lord’s doing, just when the service was about to end the pastor made a statement, He said “Look at your life and compare it to last year, if you really can think and thank you’d realise God has taken you far” wheeew! It was like I never heard that statement in my life, it went straight to my marrow…but guess what happened? “Mr devil wanted to convince me but he forgot we were no longer in the same realm, hey dude: I’m seated with christ in heavenly places….your opinion is not needed.
Ehen…as I was saying then I flashed back, since the

year began, the question have been getting from people is “where are you?” as a matter of fact, as far as 2015 is concerned, it’s my Ultimalte question of the year and I have an answer ‘cos I sat back and compared my life to last year, I realized I would be a great fool not be thankful.
There’s this song by smokie Nortful tittled “Dear God”
Oooooh that song gets to me all the time, I would share some of my favourite parts in the song:
“And if I never live to see another day
There’s nothing I would change or take away
I’ve had so many Ups that they
Far outweigh my downs.
Lord I thank you for my life”
“I realized some didn’t make it
I could have been one of the ones
Who lost my way and there were
Times Lord, I knew I almost went crazy
But I’m still here with my life”
“It may not be all that I hoped for
And every dream may not yet been realized
But I’m thankful for my life”
It’s been a great year for me, yeah there might be some delays but my joyful days outweigh the downs, truth be told….I enjoyed my self in 2015. It’s the year I got the closest with God, the year I became unashamed of the gospel as long as God is with me I know my path keeps shinning.
I’m most thankful for a very supportive and beautiful family I’ve got, friends in my life, everyone that encourages my passion and life in

 general. To answer the question: “Oyin, where are you?” Well…I might not be where I want to be yet but I’m verrrry glad I’m not where I used to be.

Take some time to count God’s blessings in your life for this year too…somehow God has taken you further than where you used to be, he blessed you on every side.
On a lighter mood, I’m gonna be caring for people on Christmas day (at work) according to
my colleague, she said it’s the best Christmas
gift but any ways let’s share this beautiful season in love with a sister..LOL interested applicants can contact me on my email:amusahoney@gmail.com
Merry Christmas and a glorified, beautiful, prosperous new year in advance. Love you!!!!

Dear God Lyrics




There were days I wanted to quit
I said surely this is it but I held on
And I watched as so called friends turn and walk away
It hurt so much I didn’t have words to say
But even when myFor my life, Lord, I thank You
For every victory in You I’ve seen
And all the moments I know it was You who kept me
So I thank You for, for my life
And I watched you take my family from there to here
And when times where a lil’ rough, God, I know You were near
And the moments I thought I’d fail, I was reminded of your nails
So I held on
And if I never live to see another day
There is nothin’ I would change or take away
I’ve had so many ups that they far outweigh my downs
Lord, I thank You for my life
For my life, Lord, I thank You
For every victory in You I’ve seen
And all the moments I know it was You who kept me
So I thank You for, for my life
I realized some didn’t make it
I could’ve been one of the ones who lost my way
And there was times, Lord, I knew I almost went crazy
But I’m still here with my life
For my life, Lord, I thank You
For every victory in You I’ve seen
And all the moments I know it was You who kept me
So I thank You for, for my life
It may not be all that I hope for
And every dream has not yet been realized
And to see Your face one day, God
I know it’s all gonna be worth it
Yeah, yeah
So I thank You, thank You for every mountain, every valley
God, everythin’ You brought me through, thank You
I know, I know it was You
Just wanna take the time to say thank You Jesus, for my life
