Small Chops: Ask for Clarity

Small Chops: A Nigerian term for Canapés, Hors d’oeuvres and the like. Small Chops: Quick thoughts of mine La Mer, Dubai, UAE, April 2018 Clarity as clear as a cinema screen. Clarity. Vision. Journey. Story. Wisdom. Ask for clarity, ask for wisdom, ask for directions, keep asking and watch Him work. “If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.” James‬ ‭1:5-6‬ ‭NLT #GodIsIndeedFantastic 🙏🏾👌🏾💯✌🏾 #HeIsTheAuthorOfThisStory #LifeIsFullOfProps (don’t be distracted by them, they only help bring the story to life). #GodTheDirector #GodTheProducer #GodTheLead #GodBeAllTheNamesInTheCredits (Gaffer – God, Personal Assistant to God – God, Stunts – God, Catering – God 😂😂) #MyJobIsToSitBackAndEatPopcorn 🍿 #SoundtrackPoppingThough: 1.

Small Chops: He Counts the Stars

Small Chops: A Nigerian term for Canapés, Hors d’oeuvres and the like. Small Chops: Quick thoughts of mine My guy said 50AED for one, I laughed in exchange rates (£9-£11 for a BALLOON?? in which economy? 🤷🏾‍♀️)… but they do make for dope pics. “He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds. He counts the stars and calls them all by name. How great is our Lord! His power is absolute! His understanding is beyond comprehension!” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭147:3-5‬ ‭NLT‬‬ #TwinkleTwinkle #BalloonPurcahseWasntInTheBudget #PictureWillLastLonger 🎈 Shine bright in the Glory of God’s goodness!! ✌🏾 @OlayideM

Small Chops: Shine Your Light

Small Chops: A Nigerian term for Canapés, Hors d’oeuvres and the like. Small Chops: Quick thoughts of mine La Mer, Dubai, UAE, April 2018 Tough times speak of who you truly are and they really test your beliefs/faith. I’ve been working on a conference since October and it’s taking place in a few days, and today was gonna be my FIRST PEAK day! It was just a WAWU! In such situations I HAVE TO pray to keep my cool because I must remain a Child of THE LIGHT so that EVERYONE WILL PRIASE MY HEAVENLY FATHER. #BeTheLightToDirectTheWay 🙏🏾 #DontNEPAYourDayAway #SometimesShutYourMouthAndPraiseInYourHeart #LORDForgiveMeForSaying💩 😂😂😂 (MATE!) ““You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:14-16‬ ‭NLT‬‬ Signed, @OlayideM

Small Chops: Learn How To Make Chin-Chin

Small Chops: A Nigerian term for Canapés, Hors d’oeuvres and the like. Small Chops: Quick thoughts of mine One thing I’m learning is that if I crave something I must learn how to make it before I buy it. My Grandma used to send me the £5.99 bucket of #ChinChin, she doesn’t need to anymore. Learning doesn’t stop after school, it must be continued. It’s how we become better, like my chin-chin making skills. We must challenge ourselves daily, but we mustn’t exhaust ourselves either.

Small Chops: Preach To Yourself

Small Chops: A Nigerian term for Canapés, Hors d’oeuvres and the like. Small Chops: Quick thoughts of mine Dubai Mall is one place I avoid going to on a normal day. I only go there when I have guests visiting, but yesterday I changed my mind. It served as great reminder to trust God in all things and with all things. No filter has been used on this picture. No filter should be used when in communication with God. He sees through all that and knows us better than we know ourselves. From sand, came this building made with human hands. How much more can God do with you who he created in His image? #PreachingToMyself  #TurnToYourNeighbourAndSayISSAWord! #TurnedToMyselfThough 🙌🏾👋🏾 The Burj Khalifa, Dubai, March 2018 Signed, @OlayideM
