I’m doing the Believers Tag, and I was tagged by Tosin Alabi, going by the fact that I’m an avid follower of her blog! Check her tag here. I did this tag organically and couldn’t wait to share my answers! #Checckit!
1. When did you give your life to Christ?
Loooool. Let’s just say I was one of those people that could say I was born born again hehe. I gave my life to Christ probably at 5 or 6 and had this great zeal to join the choir and stuff. I was also not sure of my salvation, so every time I went to church and I heard the whole…’If rapture comes…are you sure you’re going to heaven’ kind of speech…I would give my life to Christ all over again or if I heard a sermon on tv I would say the sinner’s prayer again. It basically became a recital-albeit a genuine one. ( I’m over that kind of life now)
But this amazing lady, Ope Oduwole came to my church when I was in SS1 , and my walk with God became real! It was almost like she empowered us to be able to activate our relationship with God. I could feel him. I had the strength to study the word and get revelation. I would fast on my own, by myself! I began to walk in the gifts of the spirit!and I felt the liquid love of God. I’m giving a shout out to Ope for submitting to God and allowing Him to use her to bless me and all the teenagers at The Chapel of the Healing Cross.
2. How did your family receive your conversion?
Well there was no problem basically, as I have sort of always been a Christian and I have always been excited about God. But I guess when I became a bit carried away at university, my mum became concerned, and of course took some steps to put me in order.
3. What is your favourite time to fellowship with God?
In the mornings, because my brain is refreshed and alert.
4. How often do you pray?
I pray everyday definitely. Usually more than 30 minutes, but also multiple times as I go through my day and certain issues come to my mind, I pray about them
5. What is your favourite book/books of the bible?
Proverbs and Psalms. I really enjoy the language of the word of God. Oftentimes, I laugh by myself when I read certain things or I just marvel at stuff I now see that I didn’t before. I also like the book of Ephesians, especially because of the prayers about strength in the inner man, revelation, inheritance etc-Ephesians 1 and 3
6. What church do you attend?
Petra Christian Centre
7. How would you describe your relationship with God?
It’s the best thing that has ever happened to me. He is my father and he always gives me a word that refreshes my soul. He could also be comical and gets me when when no one else does. He is also really patient with me as I work on discerning his voice and following his instructions.
8. What challenges have you faced in your walk with God?
I would say with regard to stuff like winning souls, patience in seeing the outcome of my prayers and not jumping the gun until God says it’s time for their sonship to be manifest. Also, with regard to stuff like healing, just figuring out how many times I have to confess the word for a specific kind of healing to manifest. Also, I might find it challenging speaking in tongues or praying for like really long hours -say 3, 4 or 5. I usually prefer short hours or minutes multiple times a day
9. What are your spiritual goals?
I have a couple. Not sure I can share all, but one of them is really figuring out the dynamics of faith, and being able to give a testimony about something tangible my faith has brought about.
So I added a question
10. Who’s your favourite gospel musician?
But of course, Francesca Battistelli!
