Aye Or Nay By Omalicha

As humans, we all have needs and wants. Some times,these things appear huge to us. For example,Mr A is believing God for a profitable job in a reputable organization,with a handsome salary. Mr A,needs this job to be able to cater for his family,but Mr A doesn't think he is qualified. He looks at people working in such places and assumes they are better than he is. Mr A needs this job,Mr A prays about this job,but Mr A doesn't believe he can get the job. In fact he silently convinces himself that even if he doesn't get the exact one he wants,he will get something close...Mr A is asking,Mr A is knocking,Mr A is seeking. Mr A does not have faith.

  Do you know you can have faith so strong,that others key into it?do you know your faith can influence others?Faith is not thinking of this " I WILL NOT DIE" "I WILL NOT GO HUNGRY" for that is an attitude of resistance,your are pushing against something. why? Faith is "I WILL LIVE" "I WILL EAT,AND FEED MY ENEMIES"
   Let me explain the role of God in all this from my own little understanding as a christian. For instance,Mrs B is a caterer. She bake's cakes,and she has been baking for all kinds of events for 15 years. One day Mrs C walks up to Mrs B and says "hello,I'm on my way to the shop to place an order for my daughter's birthday cake,her birthday is in two weeks. Mrs B replies,"really? I'm a caterer I can make one for your daughter" Mrs C laughs. "Really?,I don't think you know how to bake,I doubt" protesting,Mrs B tries to convince her. "I have been baking for 15 years,I promise to make you a cake,if you doubt me,I will make it free for you."
"No,I prefer to go to the shop,its easier,don't worry,Next time"
How would Mrs B feel?
  Now this is just a caterer,someone doubting her culinary skills can be very annoying. How about

Good day Eya,
I pray you get to see this early and post early because I am in a really confused and angry state of mind now. My husband and I were married for almost a year without a child and although he kept telling me not to bother,I did bother and cry to God because he would misbehave (cheat) and when I found evidence would tell me that I should be concerned about important issues which of course I knew the meaning.

Fast forward to now, just a few weeks to our anniversary, my God answered me but my husband wasn't excited,he beat me twice during the early stage of the pregnancy.

ONLY A THOUGHT by Omalicha

I am not saying there is no God. There is a God. The big bang theory and the evolution theory don't even make sense to those who propounded it. There is absolutely no definition for the Universe and all that is in it. There is a God and if I say he is awesome,that will be the ultimate understatement of all time.

   But I want "us" you and me to take a little while and imagine this; what if there was no "heaven and hell" the way we understand it to be? What if when you die, you die. Like that's it. That's the end. There will be the sudden

This Orphan Is Infecting My Marriage, What Do I Do?

Hello Eya,trust you're great. As custom please hide my details,lol.
My WC people I get small challenge and I believe I'll get the right answers here. It might be long but ejo bear with me.
Hubby is a very religious fellow, he loves God and is so passionate about helping people.

Before our wedding he told me of this girl whom he wants to help.
She's an orphan and family members rejected her, even her brothers don't care and she doesn't even know where they live.

I allowed hubby take her in before our wedding after much plea as I had said "let her stay somewhere so I can come in first coz I don't want someone living in my matrimonial home already before I come in" but obviously she had nowhere and I felt am being kind to the poor as a good christian should.

Infertility Is Affecting My Marriage, Please Advise

Good morning madam Eya. I am a reader of your blog I leave comments mostly as anonymous. I sent you a mail about 3months ago but I never saw it posted but all the same that does not stop me from giving advice on my comments to other posts.

Few years ago when I started my menstruation (I was 15 now am 23) I am always irregular, well it did'nt matters to me then but I complained to my mother and she always promises to take me to see a doctor which she never did. 

I think all of that is taking its turn on my fertility now cos whenever I visits a doctor since my TTC they refer to

Yes! We have been waiting for the month when my kitchen diary recipes (food blog) were merged with wives connection and November it is. I have been worried about how to include our recipe contributors who live outside Nigeria. When we did the blog anniversary giveaway, it was restricted to readers in Nigeria reason being that I wasn't sure how to get the award to winners outside this country.

Right from November 1, I have been thinking and resisting the urge to make it another "Nigeria only giveaway" because we have received recipes from readers in other continents too. Now with the success

Fish With Vegetable Salad Dinner For Weight Watchers

Fish and vegetable salad served as no carb dinner. This was filling even to the kids
 I decided to post this simple dinner when some of us asked about the Atkins diet. Yes, I lost 10kgs in 2 weeks with the help of this diet and I will never forget that. There is nothing too special about Atkins, you just remember to eliminate carbohydrates from your meals and like magic you see your weight dropping fast. That should tell us that carbohydrate is the major major that makes people gain weight.

Not eating carbs for two weeks is not beanz at all. I couldn't wait to resume swallowing my eba with draw soup. It takes serious discipline. Our bodies actually

Hubby Has Asked Me To Abort This Pregnancy, He Wants A Male Child

 Good morning  plus WC, my story is long but I pray your readers will really understand me. Please edit this part don't want my name to show I beg you.

 Am in my late twenties married with two daughters and expecting one soon,but am tired of this life, from a poor home, am the only graduate and my hubby refused that I should work, maybe afraid of controlling me according to him, even any little business, anytime I raise the issue he'll say I should go to my father's house and work, 

 I noticed he uses his money to threaten me in the sense that any little misunderstanding , if i beg for even 1k he won't give me, so he sees himself as a God.
 He earns a good and reasonable salary but I cry cos I lack many things, can't even send money to my parents that managed to train me
