Demi sat up on her bed. Tired and sweating, she felt she needed a break. Her eyes were drowsy and her heart was heavy. She dropped her phone on the floor right next to her bed. She figured she’d pick it up later on or even better, she’d step on it when she woke up in the morning. That way she wouldn’t need to be reminded of that night’s events.

This wasn’t the first time this was happening and she was quite sure it won’t be the last. She wanted to get on her knees and talk. But she wasn’t sure she even knew what to say anymore. Was it going to be the same words she spoke into the air three weeks ago, or the ones she declared at the altar six months ago.

You see with her, it was always a back and forth movement. One week in…

/I
I’ve loved and I’ve lost,

I looked beyond the pines,

I thought I had, I thought I was full,

But that was just an illusion.

Brought about by my selfish thoughts,

I guess I wasn’t as good as I thought,

I guess life after all wasn’t a bed of roses but a long chain of challenges, an unbreakable cycle.

—–

I wanted to be more,

I wanted more,

But it was never enough,

It’s never enough,

For the more you get, the more you want and the more you need.

I used every rule, every trick, in the book of life and yet it wasn’t enough, I wasn’t able to control it, I lost myself, I lost it.

—–

I found hope though in the smallest parts of my humanity,

In the thought of making heaven,

In the thought of being with you,

In the thought of finding myself,

Fear. 

By Jamilla Dambo.

When you hear the word fear, what comes to your mind? Do you imagine yourself in a dark room with ghosts lurking at each corner of your shoulders? Do you imagine yourself at the top of a very steep cliff about to fall? Or do you even imagine yourself drowning in a river knowing that you’re just a new meal to sharks?

A teacher asked me one day, “Do you have any fears?”

And I responded, “Not any I can think of now”.

But after that brief moment with him, I thought to myself:

“I’m afraid to lose who I am now”.

This got me thinking and I decided not to allow such fear stop me from being who I am and even greater. As a result, I always try to remember who I am, where I’m going and what I want to achieve because I believe that I am who God says I am.

Fear means a lot of things to different people. According to the Oxford Dictionary of English, fear is an unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain, or harm. It is a feeling of unease that can lead to a panic attack and in worse cases, even death.

The Bible emphasizes on fear a lot because it is a force that can hinder progress and more than anything, the Lord wants us to grow in all areas of our life. It has been noticed that the phrase “Do not be afraid” (or “Fear not” in some versions) have been mentioned 365 times to use for the 365 days in a year. That’s enough comfort for one day.

Having said all these, does it mean we aren’t supposed to get scared at times? I mean, we are humans after all. It’s in our being. The most important thing is what you do next after you get scared. Do you run away from the problem or face it because depending on you, F.E.A.R can mean two things: to Fear Everything And Run or to Face Everything And Rise. When you choose the latter, you’ll notice that you can overcome your fears and become stronger and wiser.

 

 

Hello, I’m Jamilla and I’m in my first year at Carleton University, Ottawa.

13507025_1557545417882475_4843127053579537948_n

I am studying Civil Engineering. I finished my Secondary School education in Nigeria and took one year off to take additional grade 12 courses online at the Canada E-School in accordance with the Canadian system of education in order to be well-equipped for my first year in the university.

I am a believer in Jesus Christ and I will also share my experience with Him as well as tips on how to tap into his divine glory in order to excel in him.

I am always ready to give advice. Feel free to contact me by clicking  here

I believe as individuals, we all have a message to share. A message to tell the world. A message we can’t keep to ourselves. A message that’ll make people see things the way we do. At a very young age, I knew this but I didn’t know my “message”.  I knew it was there somehow and I knew I had so much to let the world know. Not until recently did I find it when I finally found a purpose for my life in Christ.

As a person, my goal is to reach as many people as possible to create a stronger force that can make this world a better place. This is my inspiration and writing is one of the means I use to achieve this goal.

Hallo daar!

That’s Dutch for Hey there!

This is the first Seeking Voyage Post 🎉🎉🎉 And I’ll be telling you how I spent my weekend.

So I don’t know how many people have seen the movie Fault in our stars. I think a lot…? I don’t know, it was quite big when it came out. But then again, so many people might not be interested in chick flicks. But haha, it’s okay 🙂

Basically, I brought it up because, in the movie, the two main characters – Hazel and Augustus – took a trip to The Netherlands to visit Amsterdam (and along the line, someone else too).

Love

Love, a collection of feelings coupled up in a series of chemical reactions.

A delusion thought to be happiness. A moment of bliss that could live forever.

It’s a connection that could drive one mad. It drives people to the brink of insanity.

It confuses us individuals, makes us think of the moment so much we get lost.

That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t love or show love, lol.

Love is more than what we make it & so is life.

Love is kind & Love is sharing.

God is love. Be happy, God is good.

Show love to someone.

Sin & Punishment.

Hey, so this is like my first actual blog thought I’m posting from my journal.

 

So what if the punishment for sin was the life we live? The circumstances we live in?  Many times we’re unhappy with the way things are and we see the chaos going on around us which may or may not affect us individually.

Yes, we suffer from Adam & Eve’s mistakes but we drag on the punishments with the sins that we play with in the lives we live. But then Job was punished by the devil. Or so it seemed.

This kind of changes everything cause God punishes us too but not all the time. Sometimes He waits. And that hurts because being silent is dangerous (and so we wonder why some of our prayers are not answered) .
