“BEFORE YOU DATE SOMEONE…”

Listen for God’s voice…

He’s the one who will keep you on track “Proverbs 3:6”

Before you date “SOMEBODY”, ask yourself the following questions…

  1. Am I free to be who I am? Paul writes, “Let’s just go ahead and do what we were made to be” (Romans 12:6) If you have to reinvent yourself to keep somebody happy; then, you are in a wrong relationship. If they disapprove of you now, do you seriously think marriage will improve things? Not a chance!
  2. Is the relationship based on honesty? The bible talks about “telling each other the truth (Ephesians 4:25). Relationships thrive on openness and trust. When deceit creeps in; it is time to get truthful in a hurry or call it quits.
  3. Have we established clear boundaries? If the relationship ended today, would you regret your level of involvement? The bible says “Run from sexual sin (1 Corinthians 6:18)” God made “Sex” a commitment specifically for marriage, otherwise what was intended to be beautiful and fulfilling can leave you feeling “used”

4. Is this person possessive or controlling? If so; it is a red flag. The Bible says “Love is never jealous (1 Corinthian 13:4). If you can’t make a move without the other person’s permission, you need to back off and re –evaluate the relationship.

5. How are we spending our time together? Without a plan, it is easy to get more physically involved than you should. That’s why it is good to agree upfront about establishing boundaries.

Keep God in your relationship and you won’t go wrong. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do; He is the one who will keep you on track.

Ogefash's Styl

Born in the 80’s, Ogefash picked up writing early in her secondary school days at International School, University of Lagos (Unilag).

She is a writer of several short stories some of which have been published in the magazines. Some of her popular stories are: A Night to Remember, The Special Gift, Haunted, Preparing Ahead of Time amongst others. Her novel "Looming Danger" published in December 2015, was highly recommended by people. She has worked with several media outlets some of which are Spur Magazine and Upcoming Magazine. She is an educationist. With her love for children, she took up the task of supervising and taking care of children at the After School Department of Heritage School before her resignation. Her unique strory telling and song teaching skills endeared her more to the kids she worked with. Ogefash is a goal getter, a pace setter and always strives for excellence.

She is a seasoned writer and very passionate about her work. Interestingly, her blog is the first in Nigeria to start reviewing Nigerian and foreign movies and also write the movies' plots scene by scene. Ogefash blog is also the first to translate songs, interprete and give a full detailed analysis about music and artistes in Nigeria, Africa and America before other blogs started emulating her style. While other blogs provided just music lyrics alone, we took it higher by not only providing lyrics, but translating, interpreting and analyzing as well. It is also the first blog to give detailed analysis of adverts. Interestingly, Ogefash blog also known as Ogefash Photo Blog is the first blog all over the world to blog with lots of interesting pictures to support all articles. Ogefash says "I don't keep male friends because they always say "sex" is part of friendship. I don't keep female friends because they are always bitchy. I only keep people I can call more than a friend!" Ogefash has an affinity for TV reality shows. In 2018, she represented Nigeria in the PanAfrican TV reality game show "The Maltavator Challenge" powered by Nigeria's number one malt drink packed full of energy giving vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6;Malta Guinness.
