TWO HEADS ARE BETTER THAN ONE

•August 19th, 2013 • Leave a Comment

I had a great time at church today. I was looking forward to lounging in bed after church, however when I got home, I could not unzip my dress, I had completely forgotten that my dress was zipped up by a friend in church. I wish I had remembered to partly unzip my dress before getting home. I tried all sorts of measures to get unzipped but this zip did not budge, so I pick change of clothes then, Ayomide and I went to a store in city centre.I walked into the ladies and waited patiently for a lady to come in to the ladies, while I was waiting, Ecclesiastes 4:9-11 flashed through my mind which says ‘
9 Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labour:
10 If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.
11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
Ecclesiastes 4:9-11
New International Version (NIV)
So I asked God for help which I promptly received when a lady walked in and helped me unzip my dress. Afterwards I made a mental note to ascertain that I can zip up a dress before buying it.

ITS YOU I WANT

Ayomide’s actions make me wonder what God thinks of me.

Ayomide would not sleep at night unless he can feel me by his side. So, days when I’m busy, I pet him till he sleeps, then I support him with pillows and wrap him with one of my clothes. Most times I’m able to get away with this ploy for about thirty to forty-five minutes, after which the absence of my heartbeat and the warmth of my cuddle gives me away. Then he yells baring his toothless gums with his eyes tightly shut! At this point, I leave whatever I’m doing in the kitchen or at my study table to pat him to sleep. Sometimes he sleeps off, but sometimes he insists, I imagine he is saying ‘ no mum, I want you right on the bed with me, with my head on your chest’.  So its either I pause the cooking/ studying or I put him in a sling. That way we both get what we want, he gets to sleep on my chest and I get to cook or study.

All these make me wonder at the things I have wrapped myself with, which are mimicking God’s presence, when He isn’t actually there. Most times I’m too lazy to probe, and the times that I do probe, I am too lazy to seek Him or insist on having His presence.  Now that I can see myself as the lazy girl that I am,  I apologize and thank you for instructing me through Ayomide. Lord I declare no one and nothing can take your place in my life. Neither your servants nor the Luke warmness of the place you’ve been can take the place of the heat of your presence.

If human me, enjoys the attention, my son gives me and demands from me. How much more You, because You are my father and the sole purpose for creating me is to fellowship with me. So I lay aside all seeming pressing issues and I put my head on your chest and bask in the embrace of your love. No Lord, I don’t have any requests, you know me, give me what I need, I just want to be cuddled by you. Okay, speak Lord, I am all ears, you have my total undivided attention, or perhaps it’s just the silence to restore my soul, but at least we have each other’s attention, this one time!

Hello world!
