TRUE CONFESSIONS: I'VE BEEN TOUCHED!

| No comment
Today, I saw Eat, Pray, and Love - the movie starring the elegant Julia Roberts who had won my heart with her performance in Pretty Woman although my heart has sworn allegiance to my delectable and endearing AJ, who put up another indelible performance in this movie. I know it being a 2010 movie makes it an old one, but you see; I have a thing for seeing movies I love persistently. However, this is my first time seeing Eat, Pray, and Love but I can assure you that I will be losing count on the number of times I would be seeing it.

I know you will be thinking when I became a movie reviewer and trust me, this is not a critique of the movie, and you will find out if you just hang on until the end. You see, there is something special about this movie, something inspiring in a silent but germane way. I do not care whatever reviews for this movie were then; I believe the theme seats well with me. To me, the movie encourages us to find God who helps us to discover our purpose on earth, and to above all, be thankful for the life the most high has blessed us with to live!

Above all, it challenges us to embrace who we truly are without any sentimental attachments to what the world may think of us. I particularly connected to this movie than I envisaged. I laughed, cheered, and wondered as the movie wound down. I mean for someone like me who cries over movies like a baby who wants breast milk – although only when alone, I totally immersed myself completely in this movie and I beseech you to see it too peradventure you have not.

Eat, pray, and love emphasises on the need to be thankful for everything. I know there has been a wave of transformation going on in my life; things I do not want to enunciate on for now but that I will highlight momentarily, then in full as season permits. It dawned on me while seeing the movie that I have not been thankful enough to sweet baby Jesus because I think I have not had it all my way. Especially considering that despite studying law since 2001, finally graduating in 2009 not by any misgivings of mine, my practise is still hanging. Nevertheless, because the law is my purpose, I am tenaciously holding on to the robe.

In addition, the perfect idea of my dream woman is still very much elusive as I am left single in my 30. Before you stone the prostitute, I am particularly taking intolerable exception to this situation for I know I am partly responsible for that too and I have taken my troubles to God in prayers; you should too! On the other hand, I am yet to come to grasps about the order of things.

Furthermore, I am still a chronic sinner and my relationship with God is no way near what I am capable of reaching with him though I am not caught in the general habit of the world for I do not smoke, gamble and I am a teetotaller but you see, that sweet thing called SEX stands in the way. Although I justify it with the delusion that I do not cheat on my woman (when I have one, which has been a long while,) that I do not engage in unprotected sex because I stay latex always, and I never sleep with anyone at random – my clubbers will know what I mean; I am still an awful sinner.

Regardless of all these, after seeing the movie, I know that I have many things to be thankful for than I give credit for. I humbly submit that I am thankful for life, for family, for m earthly god, for the few friends who have become family. I am thankful for the people who at some point or the other have been nice to me contributing to the growth of the life of me, and for the difficulties, life has hurled at me, which I have conquered through Christ.

Despite being a shameful sinner, the grace of God has been sufficient for me. Sweet baby Jesus has remained mightily magnanimous with me. For those quick to ask me that do we continue to live in sin and expect grace to abide? I say boldly to you; the ways of God are not those of man.

I am in awe as I duly thank God for restoring unto me a perfect health, for saving me through the torrents of life, saving m feet from the quick sands of death, delivering me by his blood and renewing me by his stripes. It is astounding that in six ears, I have visited the clinic a meagre two times with each ending on a bed rest of two days and a night. This in itself is worth much more than life. The living God has touched me.

I am thankful for the providence bestowed on me to awaken the writing prowess in me, a gift I only began to harness last year.

It is only right to end in Julia’s words from the movie though taking bits out of it. As I am feeling like a space ship right now, I am just in my place of lifting off, “through the chaos, we build our lives again if we do not get attached to all the pains and we do not set up for misery… ruin is a gift. Ruin is the road to transformation!”
