My Father's business

Here I am thinking almost 100% of the time about myself and forgetting that it was never about me in the 1st place.
I came across this video on one of my friend's Facebook updates. It didn't hit me the 1st time I watched it but after a 2nd look, I realised it. 

Kunle, a guy from Coventry university went to Brazil to do the work of God, but died a few days later after drowning in the amazon river. It's really sad but the one thing that struck me was the fact that throughout his days, he chose to be about Christ. 

Luke 2: 41-49 talks about Jesus at the age of 12 staying behind in the temple to teach and to learn more about his Father through communicating with the doctors. 
Stressing on vs 49, "....How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?".
 I find that this is connected to Kunle indirectly, for as a young man, he could have chosen to go to Brazil for so many reasons, e.g just to have "fun", yet he chose to be there for the sole purpose of doing God's work. 
Christ said in Mark 16:15 "And He said unto them, Go ye into the world, and preach the gospel to every creature".
Matthew 28:19 refers to the same message "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptising them in the name of the father, and of the son, and of the Holy Ghost"

Just recently, I've been thinking about wanting to travel to many places, yet in none of those thoughts did it occur in my mind that I would go there for the work of God. This comes back to me thinking about myself and my needs almost 100% of the time. Rather selfish but Thank God my eyes are Opened now. I will go when God says I should go. That way it won't be a vain reason. Now I know that I'd want to die doing the work of God than for anything else as recorded in Philipians 1:21 "For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
 Bless you Jesus

So busy- update

Hi guys!!

Thought I should do a blog update with the little break I've managed to have... Unfortunately, I've been so busy this final year. I find myself doing something almost every day so I haven't even had time to just chill...
Handed in one of my reports yesterday and have got 3 more to go before leaving for christmas...Slightly dreading the whole process of getting them usual lol...Oh my!!...Anyway, I wrote about "hard work" a while ago and I thought I should do a little update on my progress. I tried to get my uni work done a few days before my deadline but to be honest it did not work out as planned and I ended up staying up all night to finish it off. How bad! But I'm glad I tried at least. Hopefully my efforts will be fruitful, because like the ant I tried to work hard (at least i think i did).
So I'm about to start a new one today. Been feeling a bit drained from the my late night sleep and from too much computer use; all bcz of my work but it's all good. Let's hope it all works out for good - Romans 8:28

With regards to my hair, I twisted it on the 28th of september and I still have it in. Not enough time to take it out atm. But I'm hoping to take it out in december and do a fresh "genie loc/yarn braids" since I want to protect my hair throughout this winter as I never really do. But so far, I've just washed it twice with my head&shoulders shampoo+conditioner, as the sulfur 8 wasn't really doing me any good with regards to the dandruff. I've seen better progress with this one so yh...<3 it....
Here is my hairspiration 
we'll see how it goes
Hope all is well with everyone....happy autumn!!
