Story: The Wedding Guest II Explained & the Original Ending

All scriptures mentioned in this post were taken from the New Living Translation unless indicated otherwise. Why I Wrote the Story Writing stories was never something I thought I’ll ever do, but here we are seven stories deep and by far this is the longest short story I’ve written and probably the most strategically written. I had been wanting to write this story for eight months before publishing it in January and each time I thought about writing part two it just never really happened; any ideas I had at the time weren’t the best and I had to stay true to myself – what ever I write I must enjoy reading and I didn’t enjoy the ideas I had. A year to the day that I published the first story is when God inspired me with this one and He gave me my first story where the characters have names and also ensured that all the names related to the story themes as done in the book of Hosea. Inspiration for the Story So …

Story: The Wedding Guest II

Thank you to Christabel (@BreakingMadTeam & @Bye_Wig), @Timidi.Photograpy, Namz (@JustForJoshDecorative) & my Parents for helping me out on things I wasn’t sure of. Read Part One Here: The Wedding Guest A story inspired by a handful of scriptures from the Bible. Different from my other stories, the characters have been given names you can call them by. Names that, well, tell their own stories. “But afterward the people will return and devote themselves to the Lord their God and to David’s descendant, their king. In the last days, they will tremble in awe of the Lord and of his goodness.” ~ Hosea 3:5 NLT Intro While preaching to the couple and their guests he caught another glimpse of him. “Why is this guy’s face so familiar?” he asked within himself. He looked away and continued. “And friends, family, our newly weds, Mr. & Mrs. Adetide-Cole and to myself also, God’s love has saved us from things we could never save ourselves from. By the death and resurrection of Christ Jesus, we have been called back to …

Story: The Wedding Guest

Inspired  by Proverbs Chapter 7 and Like my other stories, the characters have not been given any names. Update 19.01.2018 – this story now has a part two. Read “The Wedding Guest 2” HERE. “For she has been the ruin of many; many men have been her victims. Her house is the road to the grave. Her bedroom is the den of death.” | Proverbs 7:26-27 NLT His ego would not let him say no to her. The whole night they had teased and flirted with each other it was bound to happen with the way she commanded his attention as she swayed her hips to every rhythm and beat that blared out of the banquet hall speakers. He wanted her. What he did not know was that this was all a part of her plan. Her She had planned for this day from the moment she received the invitation to attend this wedding.“Which mugu go be my victim?” She laughed as she put on her killer wedding outfit. The dress would not be missed by male …

Life: Seeing Friendship in #GodsColourScheme

If you’re following me on Twitter you know there’s rarely a week that goes by when I’m not tweeting about how God has blessed me with some awesome friends. For a while now I’ve been wanting to post about friendship, but every time I tried, it never felt like “yeah this is it right here” – something was missing. Now if you follow me on Instagram you would have seen my little series of pictures #PetalPower. I’ve had some of these floral snaps on my phone for a while (dating back to Valentines Day 2014*). I always knew I wanted to post them, I just didn’t, until I was forced to create space on my iPhone! I didn’t want to delete the pictures until they had been posted and being that I had a few (only 14 of my few were posted) I said why not now? Then #PetalPower came to mind because it sounded cool, of course at the time, I asked God why Petal Power? I mean it has a nice ring to it, but ain’t …
