It's Gonna Be Simple...

OK, I believe in timing. Everything happens for a reason and there is no coincidence. It is just something I know. I have been reflecting over my life and trust me, it has not been a good experience. But God is always here for me, seeing me through every storm, trial, tribulation...

Last week, I got the music video of Stacie Orrico's So Simple. I remember when I had her 3rd album 'Beautiful Awakening', I never really used to listen to the song 'cause I considered it kinda boring. Anyways, I downloaded the video and I loved it. I took time to listen to the lyrics and I started looking at the big picture.

Right now...
-If you are a friend and you are not contributing ANYTHING POSITIVE to my life...that's the door.
-God is taking center stage. NO ONE should bother competing for the Nos. 1 spot cause he got it already.
-Family comes 2nd. I am OK with the way we are. We may not be the richest, the most popular but we got each other and we love each other. That's all that matters.
-I will NEVER take my true friends for granted again, so Bunmi, Glory, Isoken, Ndatse, Tobi, Victor, Peter A, Peter E and others, I LOVE YOU GUYS
-I will NEVER hesitate to love someone, we don't know tomorrow.
-I will ALWAYS be true to ME AND GOD.
-To all of those who I made feel important and took me for guys know yourselves. I can't afford that luxury anymore

Tears are actually in my eyes right now and NO I am not crying. I am just happy and grateful to God for this revelation. I am happy and I am trusting him that he will give me the strength to live my life like this...True to life...true to me...

This is the song...

"So Simple  by Stacie Orrico"


(It could all be so simple, simple)


Don't need high heels (For me, I don’t need

For a good feel

You can keep the fancy clothes

I'll take walking in the rain

Over things material

I'll trade Melrose and the big names

Give me faces that I know

Just play a melody that everybody knows


Take it down, down, down

And strip it to the core

I don't really need much less is more, more, more



True to life, true to me

The way it's got to be

So simple, so simple, so simple

Live to love, love to be

Absolutely free

(so simple, so simple, simple)


Give me wisdom, plain and truthful

Teach me something I don't know

Plain as education, inspiration I suppose (yeah yeah)

Give me family, on a Sunday

And I'll be just fine

There's nothing in the world

That's worth more of my time


Take it down, down, down

And strip it to the core

I don't really need much less is more, more, more




Living my dream, is my song to the world

(let 'em hear it)

Sharin' my soul and spirit

I'm hoping that you hear it

Got one (one) life (life) to live (live)

It's only what you make it (make it)

Every new day's a chance worth taking




It's gonna be so simple...


  1. As I read this I had to pray for you that the enlightenment you received would be renewed daily. Whenever God gives us soemthing to enlighten us the enemy always tries to distract us and make us forget what God has said. Stay encouraged man of God!

    (P.S. Didn't you say you were gonna follow my blog?)

  2. I second what Mr. Stewart said. Keep focused my brother.


Oya you sef talk ya own!!!
