Liebster award

liebster_award

I have been nominated to participate in the Liebster award by the lovely Jewel of sapphiredarkandblue. It’s the first time I am doing something like this and I am really excited to do so. I have since got to discover a few other blogs because of this and I think this is a really good idea. I would very much recommend that you all have a look at sapphiredarkandblue. From the little research I have done, the Liebster Award is somewhat informal and really isn’t an award but something like an email chain but with blog posts. I got to find out more about it from here. So Let me get to it.

1. What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done ?
Wow!!. I am the not craziest person ever. My friends think I am random and crazy but most times, I have carefully analysed my steps/decisions, as crazy as they may seem. I take FEW calculated risks. But of the top of my head, I would say I jumped at the idea of snorkelling in the Indian Ocean. This was crazy for me since I can’t swim. I have tried but I have never gotten the hang of it. I snorkelled without a life jacket. 🙂

2. What is the best compliment you’ve ever received ?
Best compliment… Wow.. I can’t think of one. But anytime someone told me “Thank You” I feel really nice. I guess we all do. 🙂

3. Given the choice of anyone in the world, who would you want as a dinner guest ?
I would love to have dinner with Shane and Shane who run https://theworshipinitiative.com. I think these guys are awesome. I admire how they do their music. I often say I wouldn’t mind doing a concert with them. But more so, it’s because I have learnt lots from watching their youtube videos and from following them on the various social media platforms. They have offered content that has drawn me and directed me to a closer walk with God.

4. If I had to listen to a song to get to know you better, what would it be?
I didn’t see this coming. I like this question. I like it because I find a lot of issues in my life mirrored in songs. The one song I can say for now is “Future Version – Shane and Shane”. 🙂

5. What is happiness to you ?
Happiness is feeling that I get as I pursue to enjoy something or someone at the right time, within the right context and for the right motives. That being said, I know that it seems and looks like a tall order. The truth is, it is. For me, happiness is the pursuit of God and all that he desires for me. I have failed so many time, but I still press on because the more I chose to follow Jesus, the happier I am.

6. If you could travel the world with someone who would it be ?
This question is hard because it makes me feel like I am choosing between all the friends I have. It’s also hard because over the years I have been privileged to have many close friends who have given so much into my life. Choosing one over another seems impossible. For now, I would most likely default to my pals from church.

7. What is your biggest fear ?
Forsaking the salvation (deliverance from sin and its power) that God has redeemed for me through His Son Jesus Christ.

8. What do you think your purpose is in life ?
To make much of God in everything I do. To ensure that God is magnified and displayed in everything that I get to do, think and desire. To find enjoyment in God in all spheres of life. Simply put to reflect God and enjoy Him.

9. Tell us about the time you were most happy ?
I remember it was in Form 3. I had just come from CU (Christian Union). But that night it was different. I have finally believed and trusted in Jesus as Lord and Saviour. Still working on the Lord part :). I remember experiencing quietness, peace and inward joy. I walked alone to the dorms but I was at peace. God privileged me to experience in the form of feeling/emotion what it means to be at peace with Him. I am no longer condemned because of my sin. That he got me.

10. What is your ideal life ?
A life lived simply and outwardly for others. A life where its abundance lies in the relationships built wherever I am graced to tread.

11. What is the one lesson you would teach your daughter ?
“God loves you regardless of the things you have said or done. No mistake can change His mind. Come seek and find His love is yours right now” – Future Version by Shane and Shane
