The get to know me tag



So I have been blogging for a while now and I found out many people that follow my blog know little to nothing about me. I apologise, it was a slip-up. Anyways, here are questions that I answered. I hope it gives you insight on the person I am and help you connect with my blog better. Don't forget to like and follow me on social media, its bibilamour04 on all platforms.

Here we go...

Are you named after anyone?

No, I'm not.

Does your name have a special meaning?

My name is a Yoruba name given to kids that were born when their dad wasn’t around. My dad travelled to the Philippines when I was born. I like to think of my name as a promise kept, in the sense that my mum and I were fine in expectant of my dad.

However, my nickname is BB gotten from my initials Bidemi Babatunde. I upgraded it to Bibi to make it more mouth full. This is for all the people that assume I formed Bibi myself😢😢, now you know the source. 

When was the last time you cried?


On Sunday the 4th of November, I had issues with my flight ticket at the airport and I had to wait 6 hours to catch another flight. I was playing a role in the church service that evening and was sad to be missing out on service. I just needed to cry a little. It was so annoying 😭😭

***The end***

Thank you so much for reading through, I hope this was fun reading, I had so much fun writing this post. I appreciate you.

Quickly, I want to remind you that God is not angry with you and Jesus loves you deeply. If you have doubts about Jesus or you find it hard to enjoy a relationship with him, he is waiting for you with arms wide open.

Just lift up your hands and say “Come, Lord Jesus, fill me with the Holy Spirit, I surrender my life to you”

It is that simple!

With love,
Bibi.

What does it mean to be complete in Christ?

What does it mean to be complete in Christ? When you look at yourself, what do you see? Do you see someone who is imperfect and lacking in many areas? Do you sometimes find yourself thinking these thoughts? God is angry with me. I’m too dirty and damaged for Him to accept me. Why would God want to be with me when I’m a hot mess. Let me give you a secret, it doesn't matter how you feel or what you think. All that matters is what God has said in His word. His word says you are Complete in Christ! You are whole! Nothing missing, nothing lost, nothing broken! This is not by your deeds or something you are on your own. This is because you're in Christ!  Are you in Christ? Colossians 2:9-10 (NKJV) For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead [a]bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all [b]principality and power. Colossians 2:9-10 (TPT) For he is the complete fullness of deity living in human form. 10 And our own completeness is now found in him . We are co

Righteousness consciousness versus sin consciousness

Righteousness consciousness versus sin consciousness If you follow me on twitter for a while now, you will see that I always talk about how powerful your righteousness consciousness is compared to sin consciousness. I often roll my eyes when I see people discussing if something is sin or not sin. Do you know someone that is always talking about what is sin or isn’t sin? Or have you found yourself saying “I must be careful not to sin today, God help me not to sin” every day? This is being sin-conscious! You have not sinned yet but you are over-focused on the power of sin rather than the righteousness of God that you are as a believer . Hebrews 10:2-3 (TPT) For if animal sacrifices could once and for all eliminate sin, they would have ceased to be offered and the worshipers would have clean consciences. Instead, once was not enough so by the repetitive sacrifices year after year, the worshipers were continually reminded of their sins, with their hearts still impure. &q

10 things Christian couples should talk about before marriage

10 things Christian couples should talk about before marriage by Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun Hi Bi-blings, it's been a hot minute I did a post on relationship and marriage. I guess it's timely because my 2 years wedding anniversary is next week and I'm in the romantic love space so I figured I might as well. So why is it important to discuss these things? Well, it's necessary because it eliminates a lot of headaches you may have along the way. It may not eliminate it all completely but there won't be any surprises. Imagine if after you said "I do", the person reveals that they are not interested in children and you want 2 kids. Where would you start from? There are so many conflicts that can be avoided altogether by having these difficult conversations before you say I do. Money Listen, money is very important in marriage. If you're not talking about your money habits now, you are setting yourself up for hard conversations down the line. Ask questions about
