Grace and Mercy

Monday, December 26, 2016 0 Comments A+ a-

December 25, 2016, was a memorable Christmas Day Celebration for me. I woke up excited. The fact that I was celebrating Christmas far away from my loved ones did not dilute my Joy. I was joyful because I realised that I will forever remain a debtor to God in the area of thanksgiving. Or, tell me, how do you thank God enough for the air you breathe in and out so effortlessly? How do you appreciate Him enough for keeping you in sound health, in my case, mental, physical and spiritual, all through the year? Let me share a short story to buttress what Im saying.

Like I said in my last, post, in August, I found myself in a depressed state and had to update my medication. But I did not share with you how I found out in September, that I was pregnant. Excited and confused at the same time, I decided to embrace the new status and began the countdown to 9 months. Then in the Last week of October, we moved houses. And Gbam! Like magic, I saw blood. The bleeding started on a Thursday in the first week of November and didnt stop till the following Friday. I had to visit the Hospital to get an excavation done. The pain of the procedure was nothing to be compared to the pain in my heart.  To be honest, I felt very sad. So sad.  Losing the pregnancy was like losing a part of me I was in love with. Just when it was my turn to be attended to, an emergency case was rushed in. The Lady had just had a baby, but she was having life-threatening complications and was referred. In the process of fulfilling the registration requirements, while the doctor examined her file, we heard a loud cry from the ambulance. The Lady had given up the ghost. She was gone. It hit me like a bolt of thunder.

Here I was, sobbing silently over the loss of an early pregnancy, while the woman, had the baby, but lost the chance to live. For one split second, I saw how ungrateful I was to God. God, who had kept me through two previous pregnancies and ensured a safe delivery each time, God, who blessed me with a husband in the first place and who keeps our children in perfect health. What did I do differently to deserve the Life that God gives me? Nothing. Its all a function of Gods grace. The grace of God makes the Difference. Gods Mercy which is renewed every morning makes the difference.

If you still feel like there is nothing to thank God for then please thank God on my behalf. Thank Him for keeping me safe. If you cant recall all the things that God has done for you this year, then please thank Him for His Grace and Mercy. Hebrew 4: 16 say, let us come boldly into His presence where we obtain grace and find mercy in time of need.

Are you in a needy situation? Irrespective of your current situation, approach God boldly. Thank Him for His grace and Mercy and ask Him for a fresh measure of His grace and Mercy for 2017.

Why I can’t Stop Praising HIM

Friday, December 23, 2016 0 Comments A+ a-


God made way for Temitope
In January 2016, I spent a lot of time in the hospital with our son. The Doctor said he had a fever. So they got him admitted, and the injections, medication, and monitoring began. Then, he was nineteen months old. It was heartbreaking to me as I watched him go through the pain of getting the IVF fixed on his hand to enable the administration of his medication through the drip. My heart broke further, when after a week of admission, he started to convulse. I had never seen anything like that before. I cried and prayed while the doctor and nurses did water swap on him and gave him paracetamol injection to bring his temperature which was between 38 degrees and 39 degrees under control. This experience stretched my faith. You know, Faith that is not tested is not faith. Faith is what you do, how you comport yourself, what you say and think when things are not as they should be. I remember posting something on Facebook that got my friends and family, responding with words of encouragement. I would not forget how Salt Essien-Nelson, sent me a CD on a teaching based on Psalms 91. I listened to it over and over again, until I got my peace and confidence back. Thank you Salt Essien for that. And thank you for checking on Temitope until he was discharged from the hospital. My friends, God made way for our son to be healed and whole. This is one reason why I can’t stop Praising HIM.

God made way for our Accommodation
In the midst of this trying time, one evening my husband came to visit us with our daughter in the hospital. One glance at him and I knew something was up and he was waiting for the perfect time to share. Then He spilled it. He said our Landlady called and said she wants to use her house. He told me she wants us to vacate the apartment as soon as we exhausted the duration of our tenancy for the year. That meant we had, eight months to prepare for a new accommodation. But then, in my part of the world, relocating a family is not a child’s game. It involves a lot of financial and strategic planning. To make matters worse, the primary source of income in our home was under threat as the body language of most employers changed in response to the wave of recession. I knew I desperately needed God to give me a word for our situation. 

As I waited for a scripture, I was reminded of the cross over service of December 31st, 2009. My PreciousRuby and I attended (not yet married, still in courtship). As we wrote down our expectations for the New Year, and prayed for accommodation in the following year, so we could settle as husband and wife, God spoke these words to me, ‘Accommodation will never be a problem for you two.’ I remember writing this in my journal and sharing excitedly with Ruby. I was also reminded of how God blessed us with the accommodation we were now expected to relinquish. It was given to us, two years paid in advance. The lesson here is that it is imperative that we, like David, should recall our past testimonies and build our confidence in God no matter our situations. In 1 Samuel 17: 34-37, I hear David, say, ‘the God who helped me to kill the lion and the bear when they attacked my sheep, is able to deliver me from this uncircumcised Philistine.’ (Paraphrased).

As we continued in prayers, and also in planning for the new phase our family was about to get into, God spoke this words to my heart, ‘I will make a way where there seems to be no way.’ In another encounter, He explained to me, from Numbers 23:19, that, ‘when He says He will make a Way, He will because He is not a man that He should lie, neither the son of man that He should change His mind.’ With these words, our confidence in God was unshaken. We knew without a doubt that God will do what He said He will do.

The Way Maker did it Again!
In August, by faith, we wrote October 22, 2016, on our Vision Board, as the day we will move into our new accommodation. August was also that month where I experienced a terrible phase of depression, mood swings and became self-conscious. But God came through for me in my health and restored me. He made way for us, and we relocated on October 28th, 2016 into a new accommodation. This new housing came with a Job promotion for my PreciousRuby, Landlords who are serious believers, desperate to please the Lord. In summary, it is a better accommodation than the previous. When God gives you a word, you can go to the market with it. What do I mean? You can rely confidently on God’s word; it is a sure word of prophecy. We prayed with 1 Samuel 7: 10 for an accommodation and God gave us more than what we desired.

Count your blessings!
Count them, name them one by one, it will surprise you what the Lord has done. And of course, He has done great things. Some of these ‘things’ we take for granted. Like waking up each morning, going and coming back safely from work each day, food on your table, clothes to wear, being in the right frame of mind, breathing, having dreams in our hearts…

Life is one gift we can never thank God enough for. My friends, as  you already know, 2016, wraps up in a few days; maybe you are already set for 2017, but have you thanked God enough? Give Him the praise due to His name. Give Him unrestrained Praise.

Praise Him in the dance, in all that you do….

My name is Precious, I was Bipolar, I live a full life, and I am immensely thankful to God.

Self-Appraisal: Associations, Environment & Relationships

Sunday, December 18, 2016 0 Comments A+ a-


While reflecting on 2016 in preparation for the New Year, a few thoughts have stuck with me. Waking up this morning, I had the following impressed on my heart as I did a quiet audit of God's faithfulness while lying down on the bed. It's 3: 37 am as I write this.


Associations are important 
Environment matters
Relationships are key

So, I'm asking myself,

'have you been careful to interpret the circumstances of your life within the framework of God’s purpose for you in 2016?'

'Have you represented God well in 2016?

'Have you been committed and diligent to your God-given assignments in 2016?'  

Only God can appraise me. If I tried, I would be too hard on myself and properly get myself into a mood. But taking about God-given assignments, I don’t think I have done all I was met to do for this blog, and I asked myself, why? What held me back?

Self-consciousness. I got to a place where I felt vulnerable, too afraid to share what was going on in my life because of the fear of being misunderstood. But the Lord gently reminded me yesterday, ‘it's not about you, it's about the lessons of your experiences and the hope that is rekindled in the heart of another when IDB stories are shared.’ 

Having experienced a terrible phase of depression in August, several hospital visits and updated medications, I really did not know where to start the story from. I sort of got into self-denial. Speaking with my physiologists made me realise that. I tried to pray, but I also knew a new season was about to be unfolded.

Sometimes, with depression comes the opportunity to see life differently. With depression comes the test of focus, and also the test of self-love. In what I would describe as a tough phase in my 2016 I have also experienced first-hand, that; 

1. Associations are important. The people we surround ourselves with on a daily basis can determine the dynamics of how we conduct ourselves. I found myself in some associations that made me walk on eggshells, some made me determined, others stretched me beyond my imagination and squeezed out the dominant juice that makes me, ‘me.' Our associations are important.

2. Environment matters. The relationship you keep determines your environment. And I agree with Daddy Showkey when he said in an interview on TVC's Your View, 'We learn by our associations.' He said he wasn't privileged of a formal education but learned a bit of English by his associations.  If you are constantly in an environment of fear, lack, want and depression, check the people in your life again. Ask yourself where is this toxic coming from and detoxify yourself or you move out to a safer space if you keep getting toxic as a result of these associations. That's one bitter truth I had to face this year.

Myself and My PreciousRuby,
two months after the wedding.
3. Relationships are key. In facing that painful truth, that environment matters and that my associations determine my environment, I have come to appreciate the relationships I have. First, being my relationship with God. Second, my relationship with my husband and then, the relationship with family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances.  In this, I have been reminded that God's love for me is constant. He does not give up on me. He disciplines me by His love. He keeps me by his love. And like that songwriter,  I can say, 'I love the way He fathers me.' My husband is my PreciousRuby,  the one who received grace to 'husband' me. Lol. I am grateful for his commitment and love, always looking out for my right, paying attention to details I would ordinary have overlooked. Family is everything. Even though we don't get to see eyeball to ball on every issue, they stand by me through thick and thin. Friends. If I go into friends, this post will be too long. But I have had friends like family that has made my journey easier. I have had colleagues who have challenged me to all round growth, and I have been blessed with a boss, Bidemi Mark-Mordi, who sees untapped potentials in me and makes investments to bring them to fore. Good relationships are not found on the surface. They are huge investment. Keep them well.


Till the next post, this is Precious wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year ahead.

My Name is Precious, I was Bipolar and I live a full life.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I am grateful. I am one of the ones who has come to say THANK YOU. You have been so good to me. THANK YOU. For how you Father me, THANK YOU. For all the things you do, THANK YOU.

4 THINGS TO REMEMBER WHEN ADVERSITY STRIKES

Wednesday, November 02, 2016 0 Comments A+ a-

"Everyone is handed adversity in life. No one's journey is easy. It's how they handle it that makes people unique. "
~ Kevin Conroy ~
Have you ever taken the time to think about how animals, trees and the ecosystem survive in an unfriendly and hostile world? Ever thought about how the Aloe Vera plant recovers from a sudden cut, yet heals perfectly and continues to survive? What about the river course; the oceans? Everyday the torrents washes into it, huge amount of dirt, yet it finds a way to relieve its self from the burden of the dirt by simply flowing.
The secret of the river is that it flows, it’s never static. So irrespective of what life throws its way, it just keeps flowing, that is why it is ever fresh, can’t be caged or stopped. For the grass, when you cut them off, they simply sprout again and continue to grow. They are resilient.
The animals do feel the pain of recovering from a physical wound. Sometimes, I even imagine that they feel the pain of losing a member of their community to the slaughter of man, to be prepared as meat for humanity. But in all these, animals move on, they continue to exist and procreate. Their existence demonstrates the adage, ‘life goes on’.
I will be the first person to admit that the life and seasons of a man cannot be compared to the animals or the ecosystem that man has been created to dominate. Yet, like Solomon, who observed the way of the ant and instructed the sluggard to do the same, we can learn a lot from our environment by observation.
So the next time, those defeating thoughts show up - thoughts of failure, thoughts of ‘you are not good enough’, thoughts of frustration, regret, guilt and all those energy-snapping thoughts, be bold enough and say to yourself, 'I am more than these. These do not define me. And like a tree at the scent of water, I will blossom again!'
If there is hope for a tree, how much more you? You who were created in the image and likeness of God. You who God is ever mindful of? You for whose sake, God never sleeps nor slumbers! My dear friend, there is hope for us in God.
The economy of the world may fail, but still life will go on, because there is hope and hope never fails.
In Joseph’s time, money failed, but there was hope for the people of Egypt and for Joseph’s household because, God prepared Joseph for a time like that and ensured that he used his gift of administration to save humanity in that season. You may be wondering and worried about how you will come out of this level and move to your next…. Worrying won’t help, rather like the river, the plants and the ecosystem which has survived over the years, learn to;
1.    Flow. Don’t flow against the tide, flow with the tide. Let God be your tide. Give him the permission to lead you. He will teach you how to profit. Isaiah 48:17
2.    Sprout Again. If all you seem to know about your situation suddenly stops working for you, don’t be afraid to start all over. Research, meet people who have been through your path and are willing to help you, be adaptive, be flexible.
3.    Grow intentionally. Whether we like it or not, from the moment a child is born he continues to grow until he comes of age. But for that child to grow well, the parents must be deliberate about what and how they feed the child. Likewise, to grow intentionally, you must feed your spirit, soul and body with the right content. Feed your mind wisely.
4.    Be resilient. None of the things life throws at us should be able to stop us if we do not want to be stopped. Like a river, when you keep flowing, you develop strong survival skills and over the time, you become resilient.
Please don’t throw in the towel, help is on the way. Hold on to hope, you will surely blossom again….
“For there is hope for a tree, If it is cut down, that it will sprout again, and that its tender shoots will not cease. Though its root may grow old in the earth, and its stump may die in the ground, yet at the scent of water it will bud and bring forth branches like a plant". Job 14:7-9 New King James Version (NKJV)
My name is Precious, I was bipolar and I live a full life.
Do you notice how the river keeps flowing despite the rocks in its path?
 
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank you because hope maketh not ashamed, I receive with thanksgiving, your love, grace and favour for this season, in Jesus name, Amen.

My name is Precious, I was Bipolar and I live a full Life.

Tuesday, July 26, 2016 1 Comments A+ a-

As I write this, it’s 7: 45 pm in Lagos, Nigeria. Hubby is on his way back from work, the children have just fallen asleep and I have had some time to myself to reflect on the activities of the past few weeks.

To start with, #ROTH2016, #TheBirthingStool (The Return of the Helper Conference) was awesome. It was one defining moment in my year. Talking about the year, it’s a few days to August, and earlier in the day, I kept thinking,"The months are rolling by so fast, what will I remember 2016 for? Will I be determined to focus on the good and discard the bad? Or will I hold on to the past success and not move on to what lies ahead? Will I allow the limitations of my circumstances to stop me? Will I give fear a place in my heart or allow faith to dominate my heart?"

In 2004, shortly after I was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder, I did a search on the internet to see if there was anyone in Nigeria who had been through what I was going through. I found one lady. I did a search recently and I still found her, only that she had updated her content, but one phrase remained constant: Imperfectly perfect… She says it like this: I am perfect, yet imperfect because of bipolar…’

The first time I came across the phrase I understood it, or perhaps I thought I did. In the past few weeks, I have been able to relate with that phrase, I am perfect, yet imperfect because of bipolar…’

But I won’t let the imperfect perfection of bipolar stop me. I won’t let those persistent thoughts that are untrue stop me. Neither will I settle for the lie that I am not good enough! I am Very Good. In Genesis 1:31, God looked at all that He had made and saw that it was Very Good. God’s love for me qualifies me for a full life. I am perfectly made and formed by my Maker and for His pleasure. And since the manufacturer has detailed knowledge about how His product will function, I’m determined to stick to His manual (the Bible).

So this post is actually a note to Self.
You are valuable. You are loved. You matter. You are formed in an intricate and fascinating way that enables you to deliver uncommon results in your area of gifting. And with a bipolar background or not, you rock! (Yes you do. Precious, you rock!)
I refuse to be silent about the things that matter. I refuse to give attention to distracting thoughts and accusing voices that have no base.
Christ Jesus died for me. I believe in Him. I believe in His amazing saving grace that has brought me this far. I am thankful to Him for medication and dedicated professionals who helped me and are helping so many out there who are managing bipolar or other forms of mental illnesses.

This is Precious saying don’t be silent. Speak up and get help. Don’t accept everything that the limitations and side effects of bipolar suggest to you. Be firm. Surround yourself with people who love and understand you, people who are committed to your success.  If you are not clear on any issue, approach them with the right attitude and they will listen to you, because they understand you. They know that you are a victor and not a victim. They know that the imperfections of bipolar do not define you. They know your value. They recognise that you are unique in a positive way. You are different. Bipolar should not define you!
Ciao!

My name is Precious, I was Bipolar and I live a full Life.

Prayer:
Lord, I am forever in awe of your love for mankind. Thank you for loving me. Your love perfects me. Your love gives me the wings to fly. Thank you for the way you formed me and for the things you have equipped me to accomplish. Thank you, Jesus!

Are Nigerians really the happiest people or are we just good at masking our feelings and emotions?

Thursday, July 07, 2016 1 Comments A+ a-

I have been away from this platform for too long. Way too long! And this has given me time to think about why I started blogging in the first place. In the process I got into a conversation with a colleague and somehow, we got talking about emotions and how people respond to their peculiar circumstances. As the conversation progressed, I was reminded about a lot of the thoughts I hold dear. Some of these thoughts I have shared on this platform in the past. So I pleaded with her to please put her perspective in pen and paper so that others can learn from it. So today's post is brought to you by Kofoworola Bada.
                             ********************************************************
They say Nigerians are the happiest people in the world. Well that was some years ago, I don’t know if the statistics will still be the same. However, I doubt that Nigerians were or are really the happiest people in the world. 

What is our definition of happy? Is it just going about smiling? Is it the ability to laugh easily? Is it absent of complains? Many people are just managing to get by under so much stress, economic downturn, unending traffic gridlock, incessant power outage, to say the least. Many Nigerians are walking on the street today looking perfectly happy and perfectly okay, but in reality, how many of them are truly happy and perfectly okay?

Stress is a major factor that many people tend to overlook and in the long run can lead to a mental breakdown. Different people have different coping mechanisms for stress but it gets to a point where your coping mechanism may become ineffective. That is why sometimes you hear of something ridiculous that someone did and you can’t just understand because the person looked happy and okay to you. If looking happy and smiling was all there was to truly being happy, someone like Robin Williams wouldn’t have committed suicide. But Robin Williams is not my focus today, besides he’s not a Nigerian.

A lot of Nigerians commit suicide that we don’t get to hear or read about and if you ask their family members or people who were close to them, they probably didn’t exhibit any symptom of being unhappy or being depressed or being mentally stressed out. When people have a mental breakdown, it’s not something that just occurred out of the blues, it's a process. Little by little, their coping mechanisms begin to wear out and before you know it, there’s a major breakdown or display of emotions to the extreme.

When mental health is mentioned in Nigeria, a lot of people don’t want to be associated with that topic because in our own understanding, mental health is synonymous with insanity. But that is what a lack of knowledge can cause. And because people are good at masking how they really feel for personal reasons, nobody really knows if the situation is one that requires urgent attention.

We need to be on the lookout for people around us. For instance, if you have someone who’s constantly moody and gets to snap easily at every little thing, that might be a sign of a bigger issue the person is dealing with. Even someone that is constantly happy and laughing and smiling may be dealing with a bigger issue that needs some digging to unravel.
 
So are Nigerians really the happiest people or are we just good at masking our feelings and emotions? We need to be able to identify our emotions and realise when it’s tending towards the extreme. That’s where emotional intelligence comes in.

Pessimism: That feeling that turn things bad!

Monday, May 30, 2016 0 Comments A+ a-

Every morning, while escorting my children to school, I usually would cross over to the other side of the road because their school is just adjacent to our home. Recently, as I embarked to cross this ever busy road that now seems like a routine, it dawned on me that not many people would find crossing over to the other side a simple task. This got me thinking!

Personally, I have had to deal with pessimism in the last two weeks. Wordweb defines pessimism as:

“The feeling that things will turn out badly. A general disposition to look on the dark side and to expect the worst in all things”

In the last two weeks, I have come to realise that saying it is easier than doing it. I have also come to know that crossing over from pessimism to optimism may not be easy if one does not deliberately take some steps. According to Wordweb, Optimism is:

“The optimistic feeling that all is going to turn out well. A general disposition to expect the best in all things”

Like every other thing in life, we must strive to maintain balance. A lack of balance in our actions and output may contribute to bipolar. With bipolar, where you have two extreme poles, the goal is to be in the middle and not at one extreme end in every situation.

So how does one cross from one extreme pole to the middle and maintain balance?

1.    Seek professional advice: There are people who have made it a point of duty to study medicine and to live a life of impact by offering professional service. Why then should we avoid them? They are here to help! Ask your doctor questions. Tell them how you feel, especially as it relates to your mental health. They may not have all the answers but they can give you good advice that can help you make informed decisions on your health.
2.    Identify the Why Behind the What. Joyce Meyer explained this point in details in her book, Conflict Free Living. Try to get a copy, it’s a great read.
To be able to identify the why behind your what, you need to understand yourself. You need to know your triggers and learn to avoid them. Questions like: ‘Why do I feel this way? Where and when did this thought get into my mind? Have I been dwelling too long on negative thoughts instead of positive ones? What am I worried about? What are my fears?’ These questions are helpful in dealing with pessimism.
3.    Make peace: Pessimism results from the negative vibes we allow into our space when we are not watchful. Negative vibes are toxic and they can come through situations, environment or the people we surround ourselves with. Making peace simply means that you first admit and accept the change you are experiencing, identify the source and bring yourself out if it. If it’s a situation, talk to the person generating a negative energy in your space. Sometimes, you need to show and teach people in your space how to love you by your words and actions. Make peace with your environment, deliberately choosing to see the good in your situation.
4.    Be Thankful: Last week, I had to deal with the negative thoughts and feelings that I was not good enough and that I was not where I should be, in comparison to my peers, etc. My response was thanksgiving. Instead of dwelling on those thoughts, I quickly recalled how life used to be and how much God has blessed me now. I told myself that if God had not helped me to recover from the limitations that come with a bipolar diagnosis, I would not have the life I have now. And this for me is huge. Thinking like this helped me to overcome my self-doubts.
5.    Fill your mind with good stuff! (Read Philippians 4:8 and 1Timothy 1:7): Whether it’s a movie, a book, a story you are told, make sure it is positive information. Even in listening to the news, you need to be selective and thoughtfully choose what to listen to. Not every news is useful to you. News that leaves you depressed and afraid should be avoided, if you ask me.
6.    Ask the Lord to help you. If you are a believer, then you know you have a friend that sticks close to you. He is closer than anyone or than you can ever imagine. Tell Him how you feel. See how David expressed his feelings to the Lord in Psalm 42, 63 and all through the Psalms. You can do the same. In God’s presence, there is fullness of Joy (Psalm 16:3). Stay in God’s presence, that’s the surest and fastest way out of depression. If you have not experienced the Lord as your Lord and Saviour, kindly email me at idaretoblossom@gmail.com

Bloggers’ Note:

In my last post, 'The Manic side of Bipolar', one point I omitted is the fact that persons who experience the manic side of depression have a propensity to give beyond the acceptable and reasonable norm. What they give, how they give and the motive for giving may not correlate.  In most cases, this is usually the first sign that an individual is relapsing into a manic depression. Well, this is my personal observation. For a professional advice, contact your psychiatrists or Physiologists.
