Beautifully Empty. by lalaponcus(m): 10:55am On Aug 07, 2017

There she was,
A stunning figure eight diva who turned heads around when she walked.
Her eyes were like the eyes of Aphrodite, luscious, charming and melting the hearts of every guy that set eyes on her.

Her trap caught a big fish.
A rich guy who just could not wait to shackle himself with her for eternity.
For her beauty blinded every little alarm that were ringing while they still courted each other.

The wedding came and the pastor led them both into the jail.
Receiving no objection from the jury, he dutifully padlocked them with a diamond encrusted ring.

The tale went downhill from there.

The great sex failed to mask the gross ways of the new 'nwunye'.
The beautiful 'iyawo' had failed to tell the truth that her body had undergone twelve abortions and could not conceive due to doctors prognosis.

The 'omotena' who had wowed from the outside was a beautifully empty vessel.
One that could still be useful only when she fully surrendered to the maker of life.

There he stood,
A tongues blasting brother whose early morning reply consisted of only 'kadabosh'.
So committed, was he to cleaning the chairs that the pastor called him out as a special worker.
So committed, was he to singing in the choir that he had remained the choir coordinator for four years straight.

A certain day came and the uncle boarded a bus.
Sitting next to a short man who chewed kolanuts while minding his business.

Uncle stepped on the man and failed to apologize swiftly.
An action that caused the short man to unleash a string of incantations that drove uncle 'kadabosh' mad instantly.

Everyone wondered.
Kini o se uncle 'kadabosh'
Where lied the power that followed the string of tongues which the good uncle spoke every day.

None knew that brother was a pastor who held special services for aunty Onome in some dark lit hotels outside town.

None knew that uncle was the Baale of the gossip committee, while the elders wife was the Olori and they loved to drink maltina while mocking the holy spirit that resided in the pastor.

None knew that uncle could 'lie for Africa' and had kept insisting his ignorance of certain loss of money in the church box.
No wonder He had remained a faithful cleaner over the years.

Uncle 'kadabosh' looked so beautiful outside, but He was as empty as a dried up river bed in the midst of the Sahara desert.

He could be revived also.
Only when he surrenders to the miracle worker who Glowreeyah said 'can do a miracle today'.

Your life and mine too can be made whole today.
Only when we submit totally to the destination changer who Glowreeyah says 'can change a destiny today'


Hello friend. Jesus loves you and wants to fashion the best out your life.
