Answering to Hannah was never a problem growing up but I dropped the name as my middle name when I was about to write the West Africa School Leaving Examination (WAEC), the reason I did this, is a piece for another day. As a result of the change, I encountered a problem when I was doing my registration in my first week in University because my birth certificate had Hannah on it, whilst my WAEC certificate had another middle name. Then I thought what was I thinking, changing this name?
I decided, when choosing our words for the wedding card prints to use Hannah rather than my other middle name and my husband said “I am not too keen about this name Hannah”. I smiled and said to him, “don’t worry, we won’t have to wait, we will conceive soon”.
It’s been 7 years to the glory of God and we are blessed with 3 boys.
The names you answer to matters a lot, at the same time your confessions does. Hannah waited on the Lord for a while in the bible, but it does not mean you will have to wait because you answer to the name. On the other hand, if you believe so, it may be so.
Your confession always find its’ way to you,
because it is part of your life.
Be Positive about Your Utterances.
What do you confess?
Those horrible confessions over your children, can you stop them please? The negative ones you declare over your life because of little challenges that will pass, do away with them. Yes! people die of a particular illness in your family or at a certain age and you believe it will happen to you? Why not confess otherwise
Irrespective of what your name is or where you come from always confess positively. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks and see the way a man thinks, so is he…
What do you have in abundance in your heart?
Let’s make these confessions…
I am the redeemed of the Lord
I am saved
I am a star
I have peace
I will not come to this world for nothing
I shall live in plenty
I am going places
I will live long, and no matter how long I live, I will not bury my child
I will fulfill my divine purpose
I receive Grace, mercy, wisdom, knowledge and understanding to achieve my goals in life
I am going places, nothing shall by any means stop me
So shall it be, Amen.
