Life is a journey..


I watched a movie today,it was a Yoruba movie as u would be able to tell as soon as you read the reason behind this post.

The movie revolves around a woman who had 9 children and 8 of them died within a time frame I am unsure of but judging by the plot it should be about 5 years.
Most of the children were already of working age, meaning she was supposed to just relax and enjoy the fruits of her labour and then they started dying one by one.

While she was lamenting at the 8th one's graveside ,blaming God for everything some women appeared(you get the drift na) and they offered her help which she readily accepted.

She was presented with 3 calabashes each one represented 3 different lives:

1. The son would live for as many years revealed in the calabash with riches and then die as soon as the time is up even if its 1year.

2.The son would live a long life with riches and fame, but the riches and fame have a duration that has expiry and on expiry the son will become a famous mad man.

3.The son would live a freakishly long life that he might have to be killed after living for too long, but he must never enjoy riches. Even if he comes by them by chance he mustn't spend,if he does he would die.

At the last option, I thought "what is the difference?"

My thoughts: If this woman makes her choice do I have the right to fault her?She had 9!!! and now just 1!

My prayer and my resolve: May God never put us in a dire situation beyond that which he knows we can control and may we never loose sight of God being the pillar of our lives because if anyone looses sight of God for a second there is no telling what desperate measures that person would apply.
May God give everyone the strength to keep the faith in trials and tribulation..because yes those times definitely come.
May God give us the strength to choose and remember him always...Amen!

LOVE the LORD with all your heart.

Cheers people!!!


  1. Amen oh, this is some serious difficult choice to make.

  2. Amen! That is a sad story/movie!

  3. Amen! Amen! Amen! Serious difficult choice. So how did the movie end? what choice did she make?

  4. Kai. Not a situation I would like to find myself in

  5. Amen and amen. It's funny how "options" appear out of the blue when life gets hard and it seems like we're at the end of our ropes. May God really give us the strenth to remember and choose Him.

    God bless you for sharing

  6. His word already said God would not try us more than we can bear. In such times, His strength is ours.

  7. AMen to all your prayers..
    @Toinlicious..she chose option 3 and made the guys life a living hell. The guy met a rich girl who lavished money on him and she told them they had to sell all their belongings if they want to get married..of cuss u know what would av happened..and the son still died anyway..

  8. Amen to your prayers. That's all i can say.


I'd love to hear from you
