#Purposeful Living Personal Memoirs

I Testify…

I wrote this on March 12th 2014…

I have decided that this March 2014 I will testify.

-Raymond shall be confirmed at Right click with amazing benefits attached.

-That Jessica will get into University Of Benin this march because God will break protocol for her sake, He will cause the clearance officer’s heart to favour her.

-That I will attend the matric in Uniben this March(with Jessica) as a student there.

-That I will testify about the above this March.

-That I will testify in the Oasis (my church) and on my blog about the above.

-I testify that I will testify about the above and more this March.

-I testify that I will testify this March.

-I will testify.

Its March 31st 2014 today…

My brother Raymond was not confirmed for the job, they told him he is still on hold for two months after he has literally put in his sweat in there. In fact, he heard in house that they might lay him off-they want to bring someone new…

I travelled to Benin for my sister’s (Jessica) admission thingy, she got the admission but doesn’t have maths in her o’levels which is a compulsory requirement for her course. I was told she will be transferred to another department but the thing is my dad is scared. Why? Because there is no cash to waste. He’s scared to pay for her admission process and it all goes to waste at the end especially as things are tight financially right now (and I don’t blame him really, I understand)- so it seems like all my prayers will go to waste right?

I even got news from him on a not so good home situation which I won’t go into.

I want to do my externship in Lagos and my school increased the accommodation fees and seeing as things are tight I just wonder….


I didn’t testify about the things I wrote about at the beginning of the month…

In fact, humanly speaking, you’d think that things are going haywire right now…


But no, I have a greater testimony…

I testify to God’s grace at work in me…

I testify that I never lost faith in God and I will never lose faith in Him…

I testify that I held on to what I know He can do-”far more than I can ever imagine or think…” (Ephesians 3:20)

I testify that I held on…

I testify that I will continue to hold on to Him…

I testify that He gave me grace to hold on to my faith in Him because without my faith in Him, I am truly empty…

I testify He never lets me go, through the trials and all, He kept me and my family…

I testify that Christ fills me, He is with me, my family and everyone connected to me ALWAYS and this my soul knows well…

I testify that the trial of my faith in Him will work better things for good…

I testify that He is refining me through the trying of my faith in Him and that I will come forth as gold…

My testimonies for March didn’t come out as I planned (man proposes, God disposes) but God gave me a greater testimony; the working of my faith in Him to strengthen my spirit, to help me grow spiritually.

And that’s the greatest testimony I can ever have.


I still testified in the month of March.

I still testified.

And I will continue to testify.

I didn’t write this story to get pity (far from it); I wrote it for everyone out there who may have had troubles in the Month of March to know that despite what may have gone down in your lives in March, I hope you had testimonies where it counts the most; in your spiritual walk with Christ.

James 1:2-4

“Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.”


I testify that come what may, satan will never steal God’s joy from my life.

I testify that whatever happens, laughter will never cease from my life, and from all our lives in Jesus Name, Amen.

We will continue to smile because we’ve got Jesus.

Happy New Month in advance dearies, and have a blessed week.

PS: I am tagging April my month of discipline and determination and of course, I tend to be more accountable when I write stuff I want to do on my blog.

I will be (not just try to be) disciplined in my exercises, in eating healthy, in spending time with God’s word every day, in prayers, in my use of the internet, in my READING MY BOOKS (very important). Basically, I will be more disciplined in managing my time.

You can make the commitment with me if you want to.

Let’s do this.

So help us God.

*Much love*

    you can’t understand how much this post blessed me. just like you, I prayed that I would testify in March over 6 issues. one came, there is some progress on another… but I’m still trusting for the remaining four.

    I have a deadline today but don’t have the finances to meet up. an additional trouble arose last week, adding to the financial burden. But I thank God cos like you, my faith is growing. I’m learning more & more to rely solely on Him. all this stretching will make me stronger. So, I testify of His love & mercies to me 🙂

      ” all this stretching will make me stronger…”
      ” all this stretching will make me stronger.”
      ” all this stretching will make me stronger.”
      I just keep repeating that again Gloria. indeed, through the trials, we grow in Him, why? because He pulls u closer thru the pain, walking with the knowledge that come what may, God is still there.

    Short of words and grateful at the same time, through it all God is God. He sees, he knows, he cares.
    Even in the midst of it all, we smile because we have Jesus! I testify with you!!

    Lets keep calling things that are not as though they were, God honours our faith!

    Right on Frances! When things do not go like we hoped, it does not mean God is not working, in fact, it means He is working it out in ways bigger and better than we had planned. All my dreams for March did not come to pass but I have testimonies… I testify!

    That comment blessed me…
    So sweetie, yup yup yup by year end, we shall see.

      twas Praisegeorge and he’s so right E, “the big picture”.
      God knows where all this is going to and will culminate in. ultimately, it will be awesome, its even awesome already, if only we know what God’s got planned.

      I truly bowed my head in prayer at your comment, that i will not derail from using what God has put in me..I have a gift for being open? so almost everyone says but I’ve never noted it.
      thank you E, your comment opened my eyes to certain things,a lot of things that go on with me are put in perspective now(more than you can imagine)thank you..
      Matt 5;16(msg) “keep open house, be generous with your lives.by opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.”

    Nothing could be more truthFULL than this! Mid January i was almost discouraged by that old serpent concerning expectations & dreams i had on some prayer requests & testimonies-to-be that didn’t come at the time but the Lord strengthened me and i can testify that i still firmly trust in HIM because HIS word is faithful and true: 2chron.16:9= “The LORD’s eyes keep on
    roaming throughout the earth,
    looking for those whose hearts
    completely belong to him, so that
    he may strongly support them…” . This is our testimony frances; “I testify that He gave me grace to
    hold on to my faith in Him
    because without my faith in Him,
    I am truly empty…”
    God bless you sister.

      thank you Emmytim. God’s word is never changes, not one falls to the ground void. He has promised He will never leave us,depite what we think about unanswered prayers(which are answered already anyway) and He cant leave us. He is by our side! halleluyah!
      I am truly happy you conquered it all, we wont be discouraged, we will keep our trust iin the Lord who will come through for us ALWAYS

    “And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Isreal, and that I am the lord your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed” ~Joel 2:27
    “When the lord restored the fortunes of zion, we were like those who dream. Then our mouth. Was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, “the lord has done great things for them”.~ Psalm 126:1-2
    God’s people are never put to shame. No matter how it’s looking, never stop testifying because he will turn the situation around. He will bless you beyond your imagination and people will see. And say, “they serve the God that never forsakes his own.” Keep holding on and I will be praying for you.

    I saw a comment on Facebook and I’d like to share it with you:
    Two things define you; your patience when you have nothing and your attitude when you have everything.

    You champion Christ in everything you do and it shows on your blog. Your testimony will be bigger in due time. 🙂

    So many things I asked for that I’m yet to get but so many things i did not ask for that i got too. Whether we see it or not, God is always working on our behalf.
    We could sit down and enjoy the pity party or praise Him in the hallway till the door opens.

    Attitude of gratitude it is, all the way!!!
