In preparation of the Praise Party the world will throw once all this is over. Amen. . . Link in Bio for Thursday Thoughts. . . There's something about looking deep into my camera and smiling. Not because of anything but because there's a God, and all WILL be well because we have Him. 💖💖💖
Quarantine Life: Insta Live is blowing up! WhatsApp group messages keep piling up! Zoom meetings are the go-to thing. Then there's the TAKE A COURSE ONLINE advert thrust in your face all the time. I just feel like slamming my phone to the wall tbh but I cannot because I need it! There just seems to be so much online suddenly and it gets overhwlming. Sometimes I don't turn on data on purpose. I switch off my phone too. I'm sorry but my sanity is very important abeg. Lol. God is just the thread that is keeping some of us together. If not for Him.....😐😑 What about you? How are you coping this time? Link In Bio for the New Blog Post! Leave a comment. It would be nice to hear from you. 💖💖💖
Running, hiding, shrinking, putting it off- I have become an expert at these things. Feelings of inadequacy and insecurity reigning in my heart. But if there's one thing quarantine life has taught and is teaching me, it is that it is not about what I feel. It's about what God says. It is trusting Him enough to obey without questions. It is following Him without looking back. It is walking by His words not feelings. . . I'm not running anymore or shrinking. I'm going to live out my faith louder than ever. Sure, I don't think I'm worthy but then it's not about how I feel but what God says. What He says rules. I'm here for the long haul. Here goes. . . My name is Temiloluwa Okegbade-Johnson and I document certain thoughts of the Most High through the help of the Holy Spirit on a blog called Oasis In Jesus Christ. . . There's a new blog post. Link in my bio. SPOILER ALERT! 🚨 It's titled Death: The End or The Door and I think you should read it.
There's so much revealed in the newest blog post. Wondering what happened to the other blog; Thoughts Of A Sea Anemone? The reply can be found in the blog post and another big news I'm so excited about. Join the Oasis in Jesus family by following the blog and learning a thing or two. . Link in my bio! . Stay Safe!
Here's a picture of me extra happy and that's because Easter is my favorite holiday!! It's such a joy that Jesus loves us so much to die for us and when He arose, we were reconciled with our Maker. Therefore we can come boldly to our Maker, call Him Abba and have a wonderful relationship with Him! Jesus' sacrifice gave us more than just sonship, we were also given the great comforter- THE HOLY SPIRIT!!! What joy it is to be in a relationship with The Most High!!!! Thank You Jesus for making my life worth living! I love You Jesus!!! Happy Easter folks. There's a new post on the blog, a continuation of our True Love series and it is titled A Place Of Intimacy. To read, click the link in my bio. Stay Safe. Jesus loves you. 💖💖
'Now that we cannot invite you to our elaborate church programs, fancy outreaches and flashy church buildings instead we invite you into a relationship. We do not call you into a doctrine or organized religion but into the knowledge of God through His son Jesus Christ and this knowledge leads to a life-long relationship. Just come as you are to Jesus today!' . Link in Bio for the New Post on Oasis In Jesus. Yes, the hiatus is over!! Also, TOASA will be shutting down to become a series on the parent blog. . I had a lot of trepidation on this blog post. For the first time in a really long time, I wasn't FEELING the post which was why I didn't bother to publicize the post but now I realize it's not about my 'feelings' but about Him! Jesus! The gospel must be heard! Men need to come to the knowledge of His great love! Link in the bio to read the post! It's new series too! Stay safe!
While the world is on lockdown, minds trembling with fear, conspirational theories flying around, confused musings is the order of the day and all the hurly that Covid 19 has brought to our world, He stays waiting. He's eager that one will stop and listen to His soft voice calling, another will be still and know that He's always available and the world will find Him. He waits patiently as He has since ages past. He waits for that moment when His creature will run back into His arms which was where the creatures should have been anyway. He waits. "Come to me", He's saying gently. He will not force, it is not in His nature. Instead He waits with compassion and the greatest love of all time in His heart for His creature. His name is Yahweh. He waits for you and I. Come to Jesus today.
I wear this gown with humility and gratitude. I shouldn't be here but I am. I wear this gown with a racing heart thinking to those who dreamed but it never came. Those who were close, those who almost touched, those who had touched but the rug of realisation was pulled from underneath their feet rendering their hopes void, throwing them into an abyss of endless sorrows and would-have-beens. This is for you. It's almost six years. You should have worn this gown and others. You should have achieved this feat but you haven't. But I am here today as your kin, related to you only in gender and my inadequate sympathy. Your sufferings and pain are beyond my imaginations. I can only stand firm and only hope to reconcile the past with the present in order to create a smooth terrain for the future. B.A History and International Studies, I will not fail. God-helping I won't. Let us hold on to Him through faith. This is for the Chibok Girls. #bringbackourgirlsisalmostsixyears
Here I am at this moment grateful. What can I say? It is a great privilege to be handed down this baton of honour and prestige by Abba. Through all the trials, the UTMEs, Post UTMEs, the longing and the waiting- the process, Yahweh was there, guiding and leading me, holding my hand and showing me the way, His Way- Jesus. Every step seemed easy because of His spirit. The wait was worth it because He was there all the way. I'm grateful to know Jesus and to be associated with Him. This marks the start of another journey and it is one I gladly embark on because Abba is here with me and He will be all the way, in every step and drop until my ocean is formed, until the goal is reached and until the purpose He has ordained me for is achieved. I am totally grateful that He counted me worthy to be here. I do not take it for granted. I also do not mock others who do not have or could not have, He is planning something big for you, all you need to do is align! I am grateful Jesus. I love you now and forever. Only You. ❤
It's a new week! It's also well into the first quarter of this year and decade! There are still goals to be achieved and values to be added to our lives. It's not too late to start. There is a God of all sufficiency to help us all the way. I'm sorry I have not been frequent here and on the blog too. There has been major life changes and all which I have mentioned on the blog. I hope you have a fruitful and blessed week. Jesus LOVES you! Never forget that! Let us go into this week knowing we are LOVED by the maker of the universe! 💖💖 Stay blessed!! #Jesuslovesyou
Everything might seem really crazy right now but God keeps extending His hand of love. He is always there for us. So instead of fretting, can we just pour out our hearts to Him in total submission? I cannot achieve the goals I have set if I depend on my might. I cannot fulfil my divine purpose by my power. You cannot either. That is why He, the All-powerful God is a constant help. Ever present! What then is to be done? We recognize our weakness and follow His leading knowing fully well that we are nothing without Him. We obey His every word. We eat them up like our lives depend on it and our lives does depend on Him. We keep seeking Him and His kingdom. We are Yahweh’s always and forever! 100% dependence on God. Only Him, nothing else not our might, power, intellect, looks or whatever, just Jesus. This picture is absolutely weird but for some reason I like it.

Happy New Year everyone!!! Glory!!! Thank God for the year 2020 and by extension the new decade! This is going to be an amazing year and decade for us. I pray that we all experience accelerated spiritual growth. I pray that the love of Christ is made perfect in our lives. May we align perfectly to Abba's will. May we shine brightly and expressly for Jesus this year and decade. We receive the grace and enablement to study the word of God and pray more than we used to. I am so grateful for each and everyone here and I am very excited for what God wants to do in our lives this season! The first and second posts of the year is out on the blog Thoughts Of A Sea Anemone! Glorrry! After much hesitation about really opening up and putting certain things out there. Thank You, Holy Spirit! Link is in my bio! Have a wonderful year! #Jesuslovesyou

Someone told me celebrating Christmas was pointless. Hmmm. Quick story: A couple of weeks ago I attended a Christmas Carol and honestly, I was feeling very frustrated at life and God. I was not feeling the Christmas thing at all. But soon in the midst of singing songs and just thinking about that little baby in the manger, I couldn’t help but cry! Like He came to earth for me! To make me His! Not only that, He passed through all I am and will pass through so He can know how I feel and attend adequately to my needs. He was hungry too, He was a toddler too, He was sleepy too, He was a TEENAGER too!! He was tempted too! Like He understands all I feel!! He CARES! So what is there not to celebrate? Like there is absolutely no reason why I should sit still and not shout on the top of my voice about the love of Christ!!! JESUS LOVES YOU WORLD!!!!

Do you ever wonder and ask God what He is up to in your life? Have you had expectations for years and it never seems to materialize? Have you been praying for something and the answer to your prayers never comes? Do you ever feel like God loves you less than others? Do you ever feel like maybe God has more important things to do than hear your requests and help you? Do you ever feel lonely and unloved? I have no answer to your questions. One thing I can say for sure is that God absolutely does not love you less! God loves you very very much! God is MADLY in love with you. You are the center of His world! No, you’re not alone, you’re not less important in fact you are VERY important to God and He is up to something AMAZING in your life. Link in Bio for the new blog post on TOASA titled 'Encouragement From Within'. We try to hold on to God and His faithfulness on this blog post.Stay blessed! #Godisfaithful #Jesus #Faithbasedblog #blog
The way God makes adequate provision never ceases to amaze me. One moment it is just a thought of what I want and the next moment He is granting me that thought on a platter of gold really. Lol. How can God be so caring and consistent in that care and doting. In our hard times and storms, He still finds ways to comfort us and help us hold on to faith for the greater opportunity that lies ahead of us. I woke up grouchy and unhappy but thinking about how God has been so amazing reminded me that I have a lot to be thankful for. Things might not look the way I want but God is sufficient and reliable. He's working on something AWESOME for me! So do not despair whatever that situation may be! Hold on to this one truth, God is madly in LOVE with you!! Yes, Jesus loves you!! P.S This is a picture of my sister and I. Pardon my weird eyes. I have a thing for ruining all her selfies. Lol. P.S New blog post loading. #happysaturday #happysistersaturday #sistersister
Christ doesn’t become precious to us until we are humble. When we preoccupy ourselves with our own wants and needs we can’t see the matchless worth of Christ. Also, until we comprehend how lost we are we can’t understand Christ wondrous and redeeming love. Until we see our poverty, we can’t see His riches. No one enters the kingdom without realizing his need to repent.” – John MacArthur Some people don’t see the need to believe in Jesus. Their lives are complete, they have a reasonable explanation for how the world was made, the affairs of their life so in fact, there’s no God! They have filled the God shaped vacuum in their hearts and life with something else. When the facade of that temporary filling is gone, they search for another thing to fill up that vacuum. It becomes an endless circle of searching for everlasting peace, joy and fulfilment which can only be found in Jesus. It is only God, the Triune God that can fill the God-shaped hollow in our hearts! Only God! Click the link in my bio to read the new blog post on Thoughts of A Sea Anemone.
One thing that never ceases to amaze me is God's faithfulness. Like how can God be always so faithful and so consistent? He's always ready to help! Always! He doesn't get tired or weary of our prayers or of us. He's just super FAITHFUL! Thank You Lord for your faithfulness! Happy Sunday Everyone! (Don't forget TOASA's new blog post.

// Our world might be in chaos, our minds might wreak havoc but because of the love God has for us, His peace is always at arms length. All we need to do is grab it! Hold unto His peace and love! Stop looking at your situation and problems but at God! // One of the reasons why I started the blog Thoughts Of A Sea Anemone was to be able to write more content. I realized that Oasis In Jesus had a particular tone and vibe and I didn't want to ruin it so I started TOASA. While OIJ speaks exclusively about Jesus and the unending oasis that lies in Him, TOASA is about Him in me. Life examples and testimonies about God. Basically, OIJ is the movie while TOASA is the behind the scenes clips that is the back story to the blog posts on OIJ. Without further ado, the "behind the scenes clip" of Finding God Everywhere 1.0 is out on TOASA. Click the link in my bio to read. Stay blessed and look out for the next post! 💛 #faith #Jesuschrist #faithbasedblog #blogpost
Finding God Everywhere.. The more we focus on God, His awesome personality and His amazing promises for us, His joy and peace props up and makes a stay in our hearts. So we can be calm even in the middle of the storm just like Jesus who was asleep, on a boat, out on the sea during a raging storm. [Mark 4:35-39] Our peace and joy comes from God made possible by the understanding we derive from His words that God is all powerful and He is able to rebuke the storms of our lives, fight and win our battles and turn the negative situation of our lives around into something AMAZING! When life comes battering us with all kinds of troubles and situations, we have absolutely nothing to fear. Our God is the Maker Of the universe! He owns time and seasons and nothing is impossible for Him to do! So in trouble, we smile, laugh, are joyful and we PRAISE God! We hold on to His promises and find demonstrations of His love in every single thing that comes our way during the stormy times of our lives. Find God everywhere! Link in Bio for the full blog post. Happy Weekend! ❤ #Jesuslovesyou #faithbasedblog #Jesus
In a world that is self-centred and callous like ours, it is very possible for us to lose ourselves. We might find ourselves feeling small, unimportant and insignificant. We might say, "No one really cares about me." Yes, no one really does care like God cares. God is our maker and He cares about us deeply and greatly. He said it plainly in His word that He cares very, very much about us. (1 Peter 5:7 ). So, the maker of the entire universe cares about you. God cares about you! You! All of You!! Everything that makes you, You! God cares about every single detail of our lives because of His compassionate love for us. God is just too awesome! AWESOME GOD! To read our new post on the blog (OIJC ) titled God Of Every Detail, click the link in my Bio. God cares about you! Don't forget that! Have a great week ahead! #Godcares #Jesuslovesyou #blog #faith #faithbasedblog
I was sitting at home on a particular afternoon a couple of years ago and an underwater documentary focused on a particular creature was on the TV. I got to know that creature as the Sea Anemone and I absolutely fell in love with it. Months later in Biology class, we were being taught symbiotic relationship amongst animals and the Sea Anemone was mentioned. I couldn't help but love the creature more!! Like how certain people are obsessed with cats or dogs (I love dogs too! ), I am obsessed with the Sea Anemone! I love how beautiful and ethereal it looks. It looks like something out of another planet. Lol! But alas, don't judge on looks alone! The Sea Anemone is deadly! It's a predator! Look out little fishes! Beautiful and deadly!! Can this creature get any better?! Whenever I watch documentaries on the Sea Anemone, I can't help but think about God. Did God make this too? What was running through His mind when He created it? I can't help but marvel at God's great creative abilities. Indeed, He is the King of Kings! So why this post? I started a blog called Thoughts Of A Sea Anemone. The faith based and God inspired blog will run simultaneously with its parent blog Oasis In Jesus. I know, can I deal with it? Two blogs?? Ever heard of I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! Lol! IDK! I trust the Holy Spirit to help out! So if I fill this space with pictures of the Sea Anemone, I'm okay. I've not gone loco, I'm only appreciating God's marvellous work! Link in my Bio for my new blog. Stay blessed! P.S: I don't own any of the pictures of the Sea Anemone posted here, I download from the internet. Big upps to those amazing wildlife photographers who bless us with beautiful photos!
I was going through my journal entry for last year (July 2018 ) and my entry contained words like "I want to kill myself. I feel so useless and hopeless. " Basically I was depressed and suicidal. But I found Jesus and really, Suicide is not the option. It is never the option,Jesus is. I'm very glad I found Him. He had always been there but I didn't know but now I do! Here I am today!! The past is in the past! I look forward to everything I can be in Jesus now and forever! . I wish we would all come to the knowledge and understanding that Jesus loves us tremendously. His love is pure and deep. In Jesus lies everything we want and will ever need. The only begotten son, Jesus Christ is the WAY! . To anyone who feels like giving up, no it's not over. Come to Jesus. He wants to help you. He cares about you. (See 1 Peter 5:7 ) He wants to bear your burden. Jesus wants to give you rest! His REST! (See Matthew 11:28 ) That rest is not found in suicide but in having a personal relationship with Jesus. Basically Christ side over suicide! Come to Jesus today!!
