I am angry!!!
Totally angry in my spirit man as I type this post.
I type with tears in my heart....
I am angry because the devil is trying to insult the God that I serve, the God that I worship, my maker through whom all things were created, my father through whom nothing is impossible....

During the powerful Church service yesterday, the Guest Minister made an altar call for women waiting on God for the fruit of the womb, and I was terribly shocked at the large turn out of women in this category. Quite a number of women were in this category and the M.O.G ministered unto them. I didnt know when tears started rolling down my face as I began to intercede for this women where I was standing. I also remembered that a newly wed sister in the choir at the last rehearsal shared her testimony of how God saved her life after going through a miscarriage.
I am certain that this is just the Devil's handiwork because my bible tells me that ......none shall miscarry.(Exodus 23v. 26)

I'm angry because about this time in year 2009, I also had a miscarriage but I am THANKFUL today that GOD HAS INDEED GIVEN ME A NEW SONG. He made me a JOYFUL MOTHER of a JOYFUL and BEAUTIFUL GIRL ever so full of life and I know for sure that He will yet do it for these women. I choose to call them "WAIING/ EXPECTANT MOTHERS".The devil is really trying to steal our joy as believers, to steal our testimonies...I make boldly to say today that we shouldnt allow the devil. If the devil cant steal our joy, know for sure that he cant keep our goods.

I have also been there before so I know what it really feels like to be in God's waiting room. Yours might not be for the fruit of the womb but for something else. Permit me to share with you some few dos and donts that I learnt while in the waiting room.

In God's waiting room , you DONT grumble, you DONT envy, you DONT complain, you DONT cry (this is hard but really it is the truth).


I am convinced with no iota of doubt that God who did it for me is FAITHFUL and he will yet do it again for ALL THE WAITING MOTHERS. I encourage you to believe that God is a God of miracle. He has done it before and He will do it again because he makes all things beautiful in His time. I encourage you to take a step of faith and name your babies, furnish their nurseries, buy your baby's items, rehearse your testimonies,declare your confessions over and over again "I REFUSE TO BE BARREN" "I AM A JOYFUL MOTHER OF JOYFUL CHILDREN" "I REJECT MISCARRIAGE" , MY MARRIAGE SHALL BE BLESSED WITH CHILDREN SURROUNDING OUR TABLE"
YES!!!Go ahead and take that step of faith.
Remember that you create your own world with your thoughts and your confessions.

I am confident that with God all things are possible, I am confident that these women will stand in the church and testify to the goodness of the lord, I am confident that my dear sister will yet again stand with her baby in her arms and testify to God's faithfulness.


I am confident that everyone in God's waiting room (be it for the fruit of the womb or whatsover) will stand to the shame of the devil and the glory of the God we serve.

I am confident that in God's waiting room, "weeping may endure for a night, but JOY comes in the morning, I AM CONFIDENT that the "morning is here!

I am confident that we will sing "THIS IS MY STORY, THIS IS MY SONG....."
Yes I am angry at the devil but I am confident in my father!!!

With love and prayers,

ENI TI O BA MO INU 'RO...(He that can think...)

If there is anything that I have chosen to do very well this year, it is being THANKFUL.GRATEFUL.APRECIATIVE.e.t.c. to my Personal Friend and Saviour. Sitting in front of my system and thinking of what to SCREAM about reminds me of an "old note" that I shared on fb on Monday, July 20, 2009 at 2:58pm. At the moment, there is no iota of doubt that the note is worth sharing again. HAPPY READING PEEPS.........

CAN YOU PAUSE TO THINK???by Adeteju Atanda-Ajimotokan on Monday, July 20, 2009 at 2:58pm

Please pause to think and see whether or not you have any cause to THANK HIM...
I just heard of the deaths of two young ladies and indeed something stuck in my heart that i should drop some few lines here.....................
Although ,i did not know these two ladies while they were alive but they were connected to me one way or the other. One of the ladies was my sister's schoolmate and the other was my cousin's friend.

One of these ladies died after writing her final exams in the university.what happened???she was sick ,taken to the hospital and diagnosed of typhoid but she didnt survive it,she died of typhoid.I paused to think of the countless times that i have had typhoid fever.Especially way back in Command Ibadan, my secondary School... but here i am alive hale and hearty.Recently, i was diagnosed of typhoid, treated and i am very much okay now forgetting that i ever had this fever.....PAUSE TO THINK...HAVE YOU EVER HAD TYPHOID FEVER BEFORE???

The second lady was my cousin's friend, she got married in the month of May, my cousin was her chief bride's maid.Very sad that this lady didnt survive three months in her marriage! Can you imagine??? She died before she was three months old in her marriage.She fell ill, was rushed from church to the hospital but eventually died. And then i paused to think again, here i am....got married last year (May), already a year old in my marriage, alive hale and hearty but still not thankful enough just because ............(i will share the details later) I paused to think and then i remembered that in the month of february this year (2008), for the first time in my life, i saw what a hospital theatre looked like,had a surgery,surgery was successful to the Glory of God and i am okay to the shame of the devil but the question is have i ever paused to think???....PLEASE PAUSE TO THINK...HAVE YOU EVER GONE THROUGH A SURGERY BEFORE AND YOU ARE ALIVE TODAY OR MAYBE IT WAS ONE OF YOUR LOVED ONES THAT HAD THE SURGICAL OPERATION??? DO YOU HAVE CAUSE TO THANK HIM OR NOT???

My heart goes out to these ladies but particularly to their MAKER who can only answer the question "WHY".......I dare to say that even at their deaths, God is still to be praised. That Famous Book says.........."in ALL THINGS, give thanks". Dear Lord, I PRAISE you this moment! I repent of my ingratitude and unthankfulness, i know so well that as for me, it could have been worse than this (i don't know about you) BUT for HIS MERCY, LOVE AND GRACE. That is the essence of my repentance and appreciation.....If you agree with me, then choose to pause to think so you can have cause to thank HIM!!!

The Yorubas normally say something..."eni ti o ba mo inu ro , amo ope du"....meaning that if you know how to think then you will know how to thank and that is the essence of this note. "HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU PAUSED TO THINK??? IF YOU PAUSE TO THINK, THEN YOU WILL HAVE CAUSE(S) TO THANK!!!

May I close with one of my best portions from the Famous Book "though the fig tree do not blossom and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crops fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in in the pen and no cattle in the stalls ,YET I WILL REJOICE IN THE LORD, I WILL BE JOYFUL IN GOD MY SAVIOUR!!! (Habakkuk 3 v.17& 18)

So, dear folks, whatever the "thoughs" in your life i charge you to REJOICE and be THANKFUL like i have chosen to do and see what will happen......

I was at the prestigious Obafemi Awolowo University,Ile-Ife (my alma mater) some few days ago to get some referral documentations.
I was so impressed at the developments and positive changes that had taken place since the last time I was there. The one that particularly caught my fancy were the number of  'new Generation Banks' that had been structured inside the campuses. The structures reminded me of the good old days when it was just OAU Community bank and Wema Bank that operated inside the campus.
As soon I was done at my faculty, I headed straight for the "town 'gbooro' shuttle buses but I thought it a good idea to "pee" before embarking on a journey of 3 to 4 hours. Since I had already left the Faculty area, my only option was to use the rest room of one of these new generation banks.
I decided use a stone to kill two birds by perfoming some transactions at the bank(so that at least it wont be too obvious that i have solely come to make use of the Bank's rest room and not reallly to perform any transaction.) The banks were in a row and I entered into the first bank, did some banking transaction and asked the security guy to direct me to where the rest room was located, he pointed at a door next to the security post at the gate...I had my reservations but I decided to visit the place.. I practically ran out after entering,the sight was not one to behold at all... it was a messed up toilet with no tissue paper to say the least and the likes of what is to be seen in an ideal toilet.

I put myself together and thought to myself "why dont I head for another bank, at least one that i was a full fledged customer???" I headed for another bank in the same row and immediately asked for directions to the rest room. I was impressed with the sight of the rest room,everything was sparking white, tissue paper,handwash,hand dryer,airfreshner, hand cream all in place. Ask me if I used the rest room or not???

I am sure you are already wondering what my tale of a clean and unclean toilet is all about. The morale of my tale is not really about these toilets but about you (yes, you reading this right now)and also about me,"the tale bearer".By the time I was through in the rest room, the whole incident got me thinking and the question that I kept hearing in my spirit man was " 'Teju,which one are you???the unclean toilet or the clean toilet???Will God run out of my life exactly the way I ran out of the unclean toilet because my life is in an unclean state (a "sinful" one at that) and the great book says that only the holy ones shall see God,Hebrews 12 v. 14. Or is he pleased with the state of my life exactly the way I was pleased with the sight of the clean toilet. This episode also reminds me of an ancient proverb that says "cleanliness is next to Godliness.

Folks, this is a call to holiness (cleanliness). We need to check our lives on a daily basis and see that we are not harbouring any kind of sin and that we are not silently sending away the Holyspirit or the trinity from our lives and our affairs. Our God is holy and so as his children, we need to strive, day in day out to be as holy as our father is ...1 Peter 1 v. 16.


With love and prayers,

These are the lines of an old nursery rhyme

Procastination they say, is a thief of time!!! I have chosen to voice my thots on it simply because I have been guilty of this act in several and countless ways.The ones that readily come to mind are as follows:

One, a friend's wedding is in a couple of days, av had her "aso ebi"
with me for some weeks and here I am doing what my mother always call "dying minute rush"....(I am just giving it to a fashion designer and of course I av to pay more for it to be ready in a couple of days!!!).

Again, I decided to bless two different families with some portion of the very large quantity of food stuffs we got from our last trip to our home town during the festive season.First family on my mind , i suceeded in giving at a very good time and then I kept the whole stuff in my kitchen cabinet....of course i see the stuffs daily and i kept on saying soooner than later I will get it across to the second family.

A conversation ensued between the head of the second family (I intended to bless)and I, when we paid them a visit and then he said something that made me feel very very bad...(i really should be flogged you know)..they had no foodstuffs at home and so they had to go shopping (chei!!!can you imagine????just because I was not proactive enough, I can imagine the amount I would have helped them save If only I didnt procrastinate what i ought to have done.

Lastly, about blogging, i pushed past the level of "giving birth" and then went asleep again not because I didnt have THOTS to VOICE OUT but simply because of procrastination.

Today, I have chosen to come out of my comfort zone and deal with procrastination by "doing what I have to do when I ought to do them".In dealing with procrastination, I have learnt how to have a "to do list" where I write down all I am supposed to do and then tick them off as done once I get them done. Also, i know so well that prayer works because the greatest book ever written says in Proverbs 16v.3 "Ask the lord to bless your plans, and you will be successful in carrying them out."(Good news translation-my best translation at the moment).

More suggestions on how to deal with procrastination are welcome....
