He’s concerned about you

Don’t you think it’s wonderful to have someone concerned about you, despite the storms, strengths  or your weakness ? I’d like to share the song and lyrics that been on my mind for a couple of days.

IMG_20121207_220602

God is, just a prayer away
All you need to do is call
He will hear, your faintest cry
He’s concerned about you

So while your tears are flowing through
Your time of mourning

He is here to lift your heavy heart

‘Cause He’s in love with you

He knows
He cares
He sees
He’s there
And He’ll carry you
He’s concerned about you

Weeping may, endure for a night
But the morning will bring joy
He won’t give, you more than you can bear
He’s concerned about you

He loves you, oh yes
He loves you, ooooo
He loves you, I know He does, He really does
He’s concerned about you

He knows
He cares
He sees
He’s there
He’ll carry you
He’s concerned about you

Well, He knows
And He cares
He sees
He’s right there
He’ll carry you

He’s concerned about you
He’s concerned about you
He’s concerned, about you

I was so overwhelmed with today’s errands. I didn’t receive my staff ID and password which I have to log in my hours for my casual position at uni or else I don’t get paid for the hours I used to test participants over the past 3 weeks.  And also, I have been feel skeptical about  my application for masters of Dietetics for next year. Unknowingly I allow the cloud of worry and anxiety  to consume and take over my thoughts. I didn’t feel at peace.

Luckily I snapped myself out it, thank goodness for praise and worship and going to the throne of grace. I love,adore,crave giving God my best praise and worship and in return, his presence dominates the whole atmosphere and I truly feel at ease.

”be still and know that I am God” Psalm 46:10

My time with Him was special tonight and despite the problems i had, he gave a new perspective to look from.

During my prayers, I told him how much I loved serving others with the gifts and talents hes placed inside. However, what I have realized is the way how want to use them maybe completely different to the God had desired.

That is why even until this day, i still surrender unto Him and always pray that should direct my footstep, which he’s has never failed to do. Wherever you lead me, I will go and the be the best person that I can be, because you saw the best in me. So then I will start the day by not being a worrier but a WARRIOR!

God Bless 🙂

My journey at Toastmasters

Fellow Toastmasters and readers, today’s speech, I would like to give you an overview of:

1. My journey at Toastmasters

Toastmasters election 2013

Toastmasters election 2013

2. How this has led to apply for VP of Education

Overcoming my fear of public speaking has been a major challenge, which I have avoided confronting for many years.

Camera shy

Camera shy

As far I can remember I gave the audience chocolate once so that they could pay attention to the chocolate than me, or the time in my mum 50th speech where there was 500 people, I froze.

Public speaking phobia!!!!!!

All I knew was speaking in front of an audience or even going to a public speaking club was the LAST club I was even think of joining.

Micheal and I at Toastmasters

However, ( funny thing, how there is always a however)

Marvin: President 2012 and Sok: President 2013

Over the past 7 months, I look back and see how much I have grown as a person as well as the skills that I have developed by being an enthusiastic member at Toastmasters.

The skills and growth that I obtained from Toastmasters made me realize the fulfillment when I encourage, motivate others in solidifying their communications and interpersonal skills.

Toastmaster meeting finished

My experience in supervising  a student during my honours also made me realize that showing empathy and helping others to attain their goals are essential in establishing a vibrant learning environment.

Toastmaster meeting 180

Most of all, my fulfillment for this position is to help people unleash their potential, and ultimately establish an energetic learning environment, which accommodates the needs of individuals members, so that they they can apply these skills by making a difference in our community.

Jenny our VP of membership for 2013

To conclude fellow Toastmasters and those reading this speech for the election of VP of education who can you help with your skills and knowledge today?

Anna and Marvin are very exicted ^_^

Well there you have it my speech during the Toastmasters election last week. I think the speech summarized everything that I wanted to say now. I  have gained so many skills and opportunities, made new friendships, and I am still attaining to become a competent speaker (with LOTS and I MEAN LOTS of practice).

Freinds laughing at dinner after Toastmasters

My goals as VP of education are to ensure that I can provide an education program that every member enjoys by implementing many programs and agendas, that will not only help people to become competent speakers, but also have fun learning it too.

A toast to toasmasters

Blurry vision

Blurry vision

Headaches aches around the forehead

Broken glasses

9/20 vision

All signs  for an appointment to the optometrist, I definitely think so. In fact, it was my friend Sok who was concerned about my eyes since they have been looking red, and because of the extensive amount of hours that I use to stare at the computer screen while I was typing up  my thesis at time being. Also when I had to use the computer to enter the data for my job at uni, I got a major headaches to the point where I wasn’t able to work efficiently for the whole day. So off to the  OPTOM (optometrist).

Time to go to the optom

Please don’t laugh, but I was actually quite skeptical of going since my last encounters were not too pleasant. My last visits my optometrist said that I had a piece of metal scrap stuck in my eye, which up to this day I have no idea how it got there.

I arrived at spec-savers at 9:15am and to start off the day great, there was a free appointment available which was great since I had to work at 11:30am.

Going to the Optom is always a mystery, that is you get tested via different instruments and during the testing procedure, I have no idea what they are doing or what the outcome is going to be. Karen the optometrist showed a picture of the inside the eye and that was an interesting experience. She explained what the machine was testing for and different parts of eye.

Karen:  hmmmmmm………

Kunle: “Yes, is there something wrong, you have been really quiet for the past few seconds?”

Karen: The good news is that the blood vessels are looking healthy. Also there are no major defects are the optic nevere which is repsonsible in transimtting information such as shape, pattern and color from the back of the eye to the brain.

Kunle:  oh, thank goodness, that’s great to hear  (sigh of relief!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). When everything was finished, she explained to me that I had minor astigmatism, which is why I usually got headaches when I look at the projector, computer, etc. The prescription that they recommended me was  a strong one. However, because I will be mostly reading from a computer screens or projector in different places, it was advised that I do wear my glasses all the time.

I have to say Specscavers do offer some really good deals, I was surprised I could get two glasses with my prescription for $199.00 (I’ll a picture of the two frame in another post shortly)

Eye-chart

So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body. 1 Corinthians 6:20 (AMP)

God wants us to take care of ourselves. So if your mind is telling you to go to your dentist, health check up, etc, please do so, it is so important to take care of ourselves and to ensure that we are at our optimum health :).

Take good care of your eyesssss

Count It All Joy


Over the past few days, I’ve  thinking about the topic “Count It All Joy”, so I’ve uploaded a song that relates to this and the lyrics. James 1:2 says  Count it all joy when you fall into various trials. We all go through some trials and storms at some point. It becomes so important to develop a positive outline when you feel like your in the valley. I have good news, keep walking, be happy and give God the praise, all things work together for good to those who love God, who; or that in all things God works together with those who love him to bring about what is good. Romans 8:28

Count it all joy, all that you are going through, even when your feeling down

Count it all joy, each moment is a gift to you. So turn it all around

It’s hard to understand sometimes
Is there a master plan
How do I make sense of everything I’m going through
But maybe it’s not ours to know
So we have to learn to let things go
And simply try to make the most
Of every day and have the faith
That somehow we will find our way

IMG_20121203_203558
So count it all joy, all that you’re going through
Even when you’re feeling down
Count it all joy, each moments a gift to you
So turn it all around
And even in the darkest night
If you look hard enough
There’s a trace of sunlight waiting there
Yes waiting there for you

Sharp vision

Been searching everywhere to find
That rainbow in the air
Whenever I came close it just seemed to disappear
I had to change my point of view
Start looking at myself
I can’t believe I never knew
Everything that I need
Was right here yes inside of me

Bridge
I don’t have to be afraid
From today I have the faith
That somehow I will find my way

IMG_20121203_205336

So count it all joy, all that I’m going through
Even when I’m feeling down
Count it all joy, each moments a gift to you
So turn it all around
And even in the darkest night
If I look straight ahead
There’s a trace of sunlight waiting there

Light

Yes waiting there for me and you

AMIGOS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stay blessed and encouraged 🙂
