Day 24 : The Happiness Challenge

November 24, 2016

You people have long wish lists o, ahn ahn. I pray with you today,  from the bottom of my heart , that may the good lord, who owns and takes lives, who guides and guards, grant you his mercies and make your wishes come to pass if only they are beneficial to you and for you.

From general consensus, we will be dishing out the gists in series but I might have to add some fiction to it, a lil bit of this and that. I’ll use this to brush up my fiction writing skills and share my innermost thoughts with you all too, I already see this as a very interesting journey!

You guys did not think we would end this challenge without me getting  spiritual Did you? I know many of you know me that I’m a god person who is absolutely in love with her religion and she never fails to show it. I am glad many of us are either Christians or Muslims as  those are the ones I can easily refer to their scriptures. Today, we are going to reflect on some words of our holy books and get something from them. i’m sure you all understand that every letter and word of the scriptures is God speaking to us and helping us to get through life. Just open your Bible or Quran and reflect on a verse or if you can , an entire chapter. You could also look around for books which seek to explain these words, or those that generally help us to get better in serving God. Watch the peace that will envelope you immediately and who knows? it might directly speak to any situation you are in right now, that happens to me a lot.

Look at this one, for instance

nmatallah_755570

These are the kind of words that get me by, I always remember that it gets dark before morning and I will not be tested beyond my ability for Allah’s mercy won’t cease from my life.

Please let me know what verse of your holy book speaks to you and if you were able to reflect on it today.

I’ll be back. BOS

    Yaaay!!! Series is gon be lit🔥🔥
    my favourite verse and the one that really keeps me going is
    ان مع العسر يسرا
    “Verily after difficulty comes ease”
    this verse has alot of meaning, no matter how we think we have reached the peak of it all, there is always light at the end of the tunnel.

    The verse that has been on my mind is one from a surah we recite everyday basically which is Fatiha, “ihdina siratal mustaqeem-guide us on to the right part” I feel like this is the ultimate prayer really❤️
    And also verses 4&5 of Ad-dhuha
    4)And surely what comes after is better for you than which has gone before.
    5)And soon will your lord give you so that you shall be well pleased.

      I remember when i needed to make a really huge decision and my friend just told me to keep repeating that verse: Guide us to the straight path. As my mum would say, Oba olufunimona ni olorun

    “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Phillipians 4:13
    “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God” Phillipains 4:6
    I have a whole lot of scriptures that keeps me going, let me just paste these two here.

      Hmnnn, what chapter is that sis? I’d like to read

  • Reply Shona November 25, 2016 at 6:23 am

    Sometimes when reading the Quran and read the meanings too, I just cry.
    I just finished reading Ar-Rahman and wallahi which of his favours can we deny?
    Is it the air we breath in, the miracle of pregnancy, the miracles of the heart which exactly?
    This is one verse from the Quran which forever makes me grateful for being a Muslim!

    • Reply omotolaniee November 25, 2016 at 8:07 am

      Ar Rahman is very deep, as are all other chapters in the Holy Quran. Which of his numerous favours can we deny for real!

    Ask and it shall be given unto you, seek and you shall find. , knock and the door shall be opened unto you. Mathew 7:7 .
