Isn't this so amazing? I'm really impressed with the whole performance, but Blair Underwoods' performance was WAOH!. And how do you love Denzel and Pauletta's version of "Songs of Solomon"? The overall 10:48mins performance would leave you speechless, how much more when u watch the whole video, and see Pastor Paul leading the cast..... Interesting. I ordered my copy already. Enjoy

She called dad and told him, but he felt everything was fine, but what does dad know? She wasn't going to trust dad this time around, but she needed him to take her to the hospital. Dr Gbadebo checked her and everything was fine, but he had no answer as to why i wasn't here yet. Mum couldn't trust anyone anymore, and she had to make the decision without dad's opinion this time. Dad could understand 'cos he had come to realize that a mothers' instinct was quite important. He wouldnt make the decision, he woulnd't convince her and he wouldn't sign anything. All he would do is make mum know that he wasn't going anywhere and would be there with her till the did has been done.
So the decision was after 4hours, if nothing happens, and she still feels no movement, then she would be wheeled to the operating room. She was in tears, and told Dr Gbadebo she was not willing to take chances, though i wasn't her first child. I guess Dr Gbadebo didn't see a need, especially when Dad wasn't also in the decision making process. Or did dad feed mum with some concotions ni? wasn't i supposed to be born? was i a mistake? Why won't Dad make a decision about me?
Exactly 27minutes after mum was told she would be wheeled to the operating room, her water broke. Okay things look good now, she could now smile, dad was getting excited, but then she started screaming. She was in labour, and they coulnd't be specific on how many hours exactly that the labour was, but i was completely brought forth to earth tomorrow at about 3:19pm.
I am born for a reason, a mission, an assignment, a purpose and i have no choice whatsoever than to fufill that which i've been sent forth to do on earth.
I know i am one of the many changes our world would need, one of those who would impact our generation greatly. (positively).
I am special, peculiar, unique, different and blessed irrespective of how long i was in the womb.
I have lived and i'm living to become a story of His glory
I've been called His own, His chosen, and His child. I am named ADE-RIN-SI OLA not coincidentally or by mistake. I have walked into His wealth, the wealth of His love, His peace, His grace, His mercy, His kindess, and His provision.
I have questioned many things that has happened to me, and why it happened, and i sometimes get answers. But one thing i don't ever think i may fully understand is WHY HE CHOOSE TO LOVE ME?
Have a great week everyone, and stop by tomorrow for some refreshment. THE PARRIE IS HIA! I promise to quench ur thirst and hunger.
SO OFFICIALLY TO ALL BLOGGERS, THIS IS YOUR BLOG-VITE!

Does forgiveness have to do with people you're not cool with or your friends, or only those who hurt you? (does it make sense?)
Do you say i'm sorry 'cos you mean it, or just to fufill all righteousness?
Does forgiveness come alone, or with I'm sorry?
Do i have to let you know i've forgiven you if you hurt me?
What if i choose to forgive you when i'm no more hurt?
What if my i'm sorry comes only when i'm convinced i was wrong?
What if i don't forgive those who offend me?
What if i choose not to say I'm sorry?
Why is it dificult to forgive and say I'm sorry?
.....................................I have all these questions on my mind..................................................................
Have a great weekend.

Dad: Hold up, what did you just call me?
Rinsola: I called you Dad!
Dad: What happened to the most loving Dad you've ever known? what happend to the ALL KNOWING, ALL PROVIDING DAD? how about the unjudging God? how about calling me all the names you've ever known me to be? I don't mind you saying, jealous Dad, 'cos yes I am, I'm jealous and crazy about you. Girl you still don't know how much I love you, and you can never know how much i love you, and you think you are blessed? Love, you havent seen nothing yet, I'm just getting started with you and you see, the devil is going crazy with anger over how much I'm blessing you, and how much I'm loving you irrespective of the faults he brings before me about you. But do you think i care about those faults? moreso after you've asked me The all forgiving Father to forgive you. Seems he tends to forget that the blood I shed isn't dry yet and can never be dry, seem he's forgotten of what wonders my Blood does. Well, you can't blame him, isn't he known to be the spirit of forgetfulness himself?
Dad: So how about whats going on in ur life right now?
Rinsola: Well, All knowing Dad, you know i'm doing well, but can do better .
Dad: Aren't you going to expantiate on w'sup?
Rinsola: But Dad you know it all....,
Dad: But dear i want to hear you talk. I'm a listener you know?
Rinsola: But Dad i don't want to be ungrateful or start ranting.
Dad: And have i ever judged you on that? I love you and who you are, i made you, but not with the ranting, i made perfection, have you forgotten I'm called the Master Potter? Waoh, you need to see the joy on my face when i was making you.
Rinsola: But Dad, i appreicate You, but please why didn't you bless me with lovely curly hair so i don't have to spend time and money on braids all the time? Why didn't you put the spot on my neck, on my cheek? and could You please make me 20lbs lighter? just like Lolas'.
Dad: (With a smile on his face)......... Do you know I made just one Lola, same way i made just one Rinsola, i never made two of you, and there can never be two of you. I made you Rinsola the way you are without a mistake, i wasn't sleeping when i was making you, nether was i not with thought. Just like you all kid when you see my products "God created this one on a sunday, Olorun fara bale da eleyi) I took my time in creating you.
Rinsola: Ok....(with doubt in her mind). Okay Dad, im sorry for complaining, and i would begin to dwell on that. But dad do you know i would be a graduate soon ? and i don't know what my next step would be career wise, i thought i knew but now i don't have an idea.
Dad: I told you to always ask, and seek me when you want to know what next, i told you a while ago, i'm the ALL knowing, right? I comprehend your path, and your lying down, remember?
Rinsola: Yes I do.
Dad: Before I formed you, I knew you. Because you have me, you are a majority and your future is secured. Remember what I'm called during this time? Jehovah Jireh. With me, you are destined for success and Victory. One thing i have never promised you, is a smooth road, free of challenges. I promised you a destination and I promised to be Jehovah Shamah during those alone time, I am your ever present help when you call on me. You have a destination in this journey thru life, you would smile, but along the road, you would be challenged, I would never allow you more than you can ever bear. Remember I am Grace? Then i am sufficient for you; I am El-Shaddai.
Rinsola: Okay Dad, why havent i achieved certain things i should have achieved at my age? I planned that at a certain age i would be married and at a certain age, i would have attained my medical degree.
Dad: (The look on His face was questionable) Do you know tomorrow? or better still do you know what would happen the next second? Rinsola love, I need an answer.
Rinsola: No Dad.
Dad: EXACTLY and That 's 'cos you'r not Me, and remember YOU CAN NEVER BE ME! 'cos I AM GOD! Ehyeh asher ehyeh; The I AM THAT I AM, THE FIRST AND THE LAST, THE CREATOR of the Creation, The one who knows the deeepest thought of man. ADE-Rin-si- Ola MI ? I have called you by My name, you are My own, but i want you to know that the manifestation of the word is for an appointed time. How about delighting in my words than my name? I am not a liar, have I spoken and it did not come to pass? My love, ears have not heard what i would do neither have eyes seen it. I am indeed God, without a doubt. I am ABLE, exceedingly ABLE to do much more than you would ever imagine. I am AWESOME!
Rinsola: (Waoh...... would this be pride, the way He's chanting about Himself....)
Dad: (With a smile, He said to me) Rinsola, you know i heard what you just said?
Rinsola: But Dad, i didn't say it out.
Dad: I know the heart of men, and his thoughts i know also. I have created you to inhabit your praise. I take pride in looking at you all and knowing No one can do better, and That's why you call me AWESOME!
Rinsola: (Always speechless before Him)...........
Dad: So any more gist you want to give me?
Rinsola: Nah, i don't think so. They're so vital, You could be less bothered, since You have a whole lot of issue to take control of.
Dad: smiling and saying.... I'm all ears, and still waiting.........
Rinsola: I'm going to be making some yam porridge this afternoon, and i'm concerned it may not turn out nice
Dad: Okay, call me when you'r ready to cook, and let's do it together.
Rinsola: For REAL?Waoh, thats so awesome......................! A knock on the door distracts my attention, but i shall be back to continue my gist with Him.
Try a Father -Child relationship with Him today. I know of a fact that, He's the coolest of Dads, Best of all friends. I'm proud to say, i have the audacity to talk to an Awesome one as a friend, and without holding back. I love my relationship with Him, and i even ask Him W'SUP? Can you imagine that?
Have a funfilled and fufilled weekend everyone. The countdown continues..................

"... I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion." Exodus 33 vs 19.
Happy new month everyone, and Thank God for seeing yet another new month in great health and a sound state of mind.
Six more days to the day i would be born. I can't begin to imagine how my mum felt when she was pregnant with me.
I'm thankful to God for yet another new day, which starts as a new month, a month when i was born. There are many things i truly can't remember to be thankful to God for, but one thing i thank Him for everyday of my life is for being so merciful towards me. I say it day after day, i won't be alive today if not for the grace of God (Sure the same applies to everyone). I'm not one of those who have their christain life at a report card of satisfactory or excellent, so imagine where my christain life would be. I have disobeyed Him countless times, i have been so wrong many times, but He never ceased to have mercy on me, my case with God is like the jury reading out the verdict to God:
God: (Asking Jesus) How does your client plead?
Jesus: Your Honour, my client has confessed of her sins, and pleads guilty to you.
God: No recess, the case continues........ Has the jury come to a conclusion?
Jury: Yes Your Honour.
God: Read out the verdict.
Jury: "We the jury, find the defendant; Rinsola guilty of the white and black lies, guilty of disobedience. guilty of not paying her tithes, guilty of being ungrateful, guilty of being guilty.
God: I appreciate your time and dedication in looking for all her faults, and for finding her guilty, But I the Judge would have mercy on whom I will have mercy on, and compassion on whom I will have compassion on, and Rinsola you are hereby sentenced to My grace and mercy. I would not want to see you here again, but never fail to remember that my grace is sufficient for you.
Rinsola: DUMBFOUNDED! Are You saying You are letting me go just like that?
Jesus: He's the Judge remember? His word seals it all. But remember that Prov 28:13 (NIV) He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.
I'm not encouraging us to keep doing the wrong things all the time and asking God for His mercy, but i want us to realize that, while we are yet on this earth, sin sure would be lurking around. Romans 3 vs 10 & 23....... Meaning we all cannot live up to God's perfect way But we would have to deal with God's discipline for messing up.
Rinsola is a testimony of God's never ending grace and mercy. His grace is unlimited and forever, But His mercy is vast, yet limited.
I'm thankful to God today for His grace and mercy, and i desire and pray that it's not exhausted over my life. I hope you all experience His mercy and grace in your lives. HAPPY NEW MONTH EVERYONE!
