OOTD post coming up, Preppy Chic? 
I'm horrible when it comes to coming up with names, I need to work on that.
So do you go to church? if you don't and you'd like to (because it important that you do), click here.
That link will take you to Daystar Nigeria's online live streaming site.
I watch this every sunday, when internet allows me if not I just watch one of the already recorded messages listed there.
Today's service was about negativity, please continue to read more. I believe it will be very helpful and encouraging for anyone reading this.

Your Soul and Your Health
Many sicknesses we have are as a result of our emotions
The state of your soul will in pact on the state of your health
Ensure your will, your mind and your emotions are aligned with God's will and God's word
Romans 12 v 2 be transformed by the renewing of your mind don't be conformed to the world
Don't let the world squeeze you into its own mould
A christian cannot afford to be hopeless
Negative thoughts trigger negative emotions of anger malice envy anxiety worry doubt depression discouragement
Our thoughts and beliefs trigger fear but faith comes by hearing
Negative emotions cause the body to produce hormones in excessive quantity
and this affects your immune system. But not in a good way.
Hebrews 12 v 15 bitterness becomes a root that bears bad fruits in our lives (like sickness)
Prov 15 v 15 "He who is of a merry heart has a continual feast"
We believe it is because things are bad that's why we are sad but it is the other way around! 
Things are bad because we are sad!
The Bible says in Ephesians 4 v 26 "be angry and sin not" 
Learn to switch from negative thoughts to positive thoughts n emotion within a short time
Philippians 4 v 6-8 says "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God".
Worry never solved anything but has potential to create new ones
And we are good at it! If we r not worrying about today then its tomorrow we worry about!
When emotion seems higher than you, call on a higher power like the verse says "Present your requests to GOD"
Verse 7: Peace will come 
Remember Jesus and his disciples on the troubled boat during the storm?
The peace of God that surpasses all understanding; if something bad happens and you are smiling people are most likely going to think you are crazy because your happiness is beyond their understanding.
Verse 8: Think only positive things!!!
The Holy Spirit changes your thoughts and emotions before He changes your circumstances
Isaiah 61 v 3: Beauty for ashes, oil of joy instead of mourning...
With all this you create an atmosphere for Him to work
Nehemiah 8 v 10: The joy of the Lord is your strength
2 Corinthians 10 v 2-5 Spiritual warfare is with both supernatural beings and our imagination/emotion
Don't let negative emotions stay too long with you
2 Timothy 1 - 13Use prophesies to fight, the word of God is the sword of the spirit.
1 Samuel 30 King David was attacked by the Amalekites 
Verse 6 David switched his emotion!!! and STOPPED CRYING
The moment he did, he found a way and prayed for a solution that was provided by God.
Take control of it - your situation and fight your spiritual warfare. 
It is important because ultimately it impacts on your health!
Psalm 1 Happiness is proof of blessing!
Once sorrow is there Christ has left the place
Say this: I might not be able to change the situation but I can change how i feel about it.
and know that it is the beginning of changing your situation.

I was touched by this because the first time I started having ulcer and I went to the doctor he asked me one simple question, "Are you depressed?"
At this time I was in secondary school maybe JSS2 or 3 and I wasn't a happy camper at this point in my life. to be honest my secondary school years were NOT the best times of my life and I don't have the fondest memories from that time. When I meet up with my former classmates and they're all remembering when this and that happened, I never remember anything. This is because maybe while they were having fun I was going through somethings and they are things I wouldn't like to remember at all. Some of these things took me time to try to forget but I've forgiven myself and I believe God has forgiven me and set me free from depression totally. There are times I still feel a little low but I really have improved. No longer cutting myself or writing fiction based on depression and suicide. Not a lot of people know this but it's true, I've been through this and I try everyday to avoid falling back into that hole. I have ulcer and had a series of procedures done the summer of 2012 because it got a little worse this year. All this because of something I indirectly caused for myself, sad but true! So you see why I had to forgive myself and ask God for His and for Him to set me free.
Hi I'm Eki and I was once a cutter but God delivered me.
He is Able!



  1. actually read this a while back and felt like reading it again....its really very encouraging. I was once like u, also in secondary school (js 2/js3). Then i was in A-hall and it got to a point where I would come back from school and just cry and became a habit and eventually in ss1 my parents had to move me to another school, things got a lil better but not completely, it was then I realised that happiness truly comes from within and in line with all what u have said, truly, only God delivers. its taken me a long ass while to figure that out but i'm defntly still a work in progress. I was also once a 'cutter' about 4 years ago. but that's in the past now. and by HIS Grace, I am a new Creation. Thanks for this beautiful write-up


Thanks for the comments, really appreciate them! x
