15 Minutes on the Toilet seat



Dear God,

I trust and believe in you. The scientists have said all sorts of rubbish about you but that’s their problem. It’s funny how they can never agree on something real; even when one of them got a ‘revelation’ to buttress YOUR existence, they still didn’t believe, well a lot of them are high on substances so *shrug*

I had fun in June but right now I’m kinda broke and that’s because the bosses have travelled again without handing over our pay check. The thing is, there was fathers’ day celebration and then you put my sisters’ birthdays 11days apart and so I spent a little more than I should have. Could you please touch their hearts and make them do the right thing? Thank you.

Heavenly father, I’m grateful for all you’ve done for me lately, the tears and disappointment of February has since given way to this new hope I have. I’m happier now, not because I have all I want but because you’ve shown me that you’re working on my case.

I’m happy because now I have really let go of the pains caused me by my ex and the Human Resources Manager.  I’m grateful for the lessons I learnt, who would have thought I would be helping the HRM with her school work? I knew I had forgiven her, I guess the forgetting part is now accomplished. I wish you could help me to reach out to her a little more, to teach her how to be kind to others, to make her understand that she doesn’t have to be mean, inconsiderate and miserable just because she’s single and 30+.

I need you now more than ever before, first to help unlock my heart because I know you have the Master key. After the last experience, I locked it up and put the key away, now I can’t find it because I’ve rearranged so much and the only thing I see is work, movies, food, health and books.

Secondly, I know I once said I was tired of chasing my dreams and that I wanted them to just tell me where they were heading so we could meet up there. Well, I apologise because that came out wrong, what I wanted to say was I am sure you’re with me on the journey and that I know I won’t miss the path once I keep following your lead. Please help me not to stray.

Lastly, I need to see some signs, ones that won’t be confusing, so I can know for sure if this new friendship is what I think it is. If it isn’t, please help me to pick the vital lessons and focus on to what is important. I’m asking because he’s fast becoming a Weapon of Mass Distraction and I do not want to lose sleep over a flash in the pan.

Thank you for the grace and favour, I have to get back to work now, I will talk to you later.

Amen.

This was my posture while writing this post.

You know how much in love I am with love, so na dat one my eye go first see :o)
He will show you signs, just be on the lookout & pls don't be like me, sometimes ignoring the small signs like peace & a still small voice, while looking for an earth moving, thunderous sign.

Ms. Yellow Sisi Unspoken said...

hmm the toilet definitely the matt 6:6 place....God will definitely answer all your prayers sooner than you know it. And God bless your heart for forgiving HRM. :)

P.E.T. Projects said...

Gbemisoke: Sis mi, thanks for the advice, I should keep that in mind (listening to the still voice not just looking for a moving mountain)

@ilola: I'm glad you do

Gretel: It may take a little while, but you'll surely find the key.

Ms YSU: thanks for the verse, I wasnt even thinking about it, I just had the urge and I followed thru with it.

H said...

Amen!
He was waiting for you to ask. Plus, it's a nice place to have done it as we have all gathered here to agree on your behalf...therefore it is settled.

Hold fast.

MsJB said...

So sincere! I loved it.
All the best!!!

Myne Whitman said...

I wish you all the best. God is always faithful. HUGS...

os said...

Aaaamen!

I concur with Gbemisoke. "Your own ears will hear him. Right behind you a voice will say, "This is the way you should go," whether to the right or to the left."

Breeze said...

Amen o!!!

Adura Ojo (Naijalines) said...

LOL @ weapon of mass distraction. Love the way you wrote the whole post. Don't you wish everyone could take the little time to pray like this? I5 mins of our time out of a massive 24 hours is really not asking for much. Really.

Ibhade said...

a BIG amen!..it's well sister.. just keep the fire of faith burning :D

Ginger said...

This prayer illuminates the earlier poetry post. From your mouth to God's ears..Amen

lol@the dreams telling you where they were going so you can meet them up. Don't we all wish...

Ginger said...

You are invited to fill out this questionnaire. Thank you - http://sicklecellinnigerian.blogspot.com/2011/07/have-your-say.html

aeWHYoh: Fellow Writer said...

The prayers had me laughing. I love the fact that they are sincere though (almost child-like) which is something God expects. Hope your prayers get answered dear. The first paragraph, I could definitely ramble on to negate your view on that, but I'd rather not, lol.

Laurenta said...

after all he alone understands all our problems

dosh said...

Amen! I pray God answers your prayers and that you always feel His presence no matter what you go through in life. God bless you

P.E.T. Projects said...

Os: Im listening and waiting to hear that voice

Breeze: Amen!

BSNC: Im sure HE will, and soon too.

Didi: Charlie, thank you.

Miss A: Dear, im sure the prep for Malta is in top gear

P.E.T. Projects said...

Blessing: :) what can a girl do?

T. Notes: QUiet time with God right? Works wonders

Naijaline: Its worth it but we all get real busy and forget these little things.

Ibhade: I will... by HIS grace, I will...


AeWHYoh: I'll assume you'ld do a post on it... i'll be on the look out.


Laurenta: Would we be allowed to read your letter?

angelsbeauty said...

Good to ask God for confirmations.. he will show you the way - Amen

PS: my friend's boss has been in and out of london, meanwhile leaving his staff in naija unpaid for 8 months! I don't get that psychology.. epele.
