What goes on in a city where there is a sovereign God.

Published by kelvin Ehiozefe on

At the age of 12, I lived with my parent and siblings in a single bedroom apartment, somewhere around the offshore of the central city, struggling to feed and clothe ourselves was our main hobby. Glory in the day as the father gets leverage from friends, joy unspeakable cloud my heart as a beam of light is finally shunned on my family.

But how sudden, in the wake of a new morning the evil angel walks in- father is ill, two days on he is no more- just before we reach the surface of the ocean for a bit of fresh air, so fast coming back to where we set off. Hunger and pain made our bed every night.


So many years have gone by, am sitting by my window praying and waiting for the sun to come back–my hope is not dashed. Sound of war buzzing in my ear as I saw on television, a Palestinian soldier throws a missile into the camp of the Israeli soldier. Oh No! another father is dead in a city where there is a sovereign God.

My heart bleeds the city is on fire, we go on our knees trying to call on the fire service ring ring the network is disrupted. Oh not again! Who will save us now? The man with a gun is elected governor of the central city and the custodian of our holy book is asked to lay hands and pray for his progress in a city where there is a sovereign God.

The system is corrupt so said the activist. Nudity sells like packs of biscuit, their slogan is– to make a dollar go naked. Somewhere back in the north Little Aisha at 12 is married off like a calf sold off in market place, tears of betrayal cloud her eyes as she goes home with her new owners. Stay away from sin so said the Pope, but everyday teenage pregnancy rocks the news in a city where there is a sovereign God.

Now the government comes in with a new policy–NO WORK NO PAY!! Evans was a Christian boy by faith and a graduate, 6 years to this time Evans is still unemployed. He falls in love with the gun and the drugs; alcohol is the best companion for the night, see as evil takes away the good in a city where there is a sovereign God.

Ding dong the wedding bell Jennet is happily married, she lived in an exotic castle somewhere in the heart of central city, it’s 5 years now jennet is in the news seeking for an advocate to her divorce. This is not good; her prince charming had turned into a beast in a city where there is a sovereign God.

OH NO!! I can’t go on; with this anymore So much is happening in the city where there is a sovereign God. Only the survival survives and not the fittest, evil has become the amusement of the children of central city. Now We make a call on the blood of the holy lamb to come to cleanse central city a second time, central city is sick and in need of healing.

The world we live in has gradually become a chaotic mass, sorrows and pain have covered the face of the earth, Oh what a shame! Mother earth is sick and in need of healing, will you call the paramedics to come to attend to her needs. Tick Tack her time is still ticking, how long would it take before this savior arrives.

The ultimate call has falling on you and I today, and we owe it to respond in Love. As we continue to reach out to each other irrespective of ethnicity and diversity. Lets us come together and make this world a better place.

First of all, I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Cheers!
