Flush Their Evil Schemes And Love Them Even More


"Evil schemes from manipulative people don't utterly leave us heartbroken, they teach us new techniques to operate with."

In search of a bosom friend, I fell into a situation worse than a Ponzi Scheme.

The supposed "new bosom friend" was such a motivational speaker, little did I know he was trying to win me over and take advantage of my sacrificial nature.

Now....
Imagine doing a strenuous business proposal on credit which cost you so many sleepless nights and brainstorming days... 
Imagine graduating into lending the same person an amount money because they claimed you were their last resort with the excuse that their money was tied to a fixed deposit, assuring you that immediately the investment is broken, they'll pay you in full and even add an interest for your patience and kind gesture... 
Imagine being lied to for many months with many excuses manufactured from the lake of hell...
Imagine having to stare at the custom-made birthday gift you earlier went out of your way to do for the exact same person with the intention of planting a hearty smile that'll make them blush from cheek to cheek all year long and in the coming year...
Imagine the regrets that emanated from disclosing family, relationship, platonic and confidential issues to that same person whom you thought reasoned just like you and was literally your nonidentical tribal twin and confidant....

 Irritatingly frustrating right? That was one of the distasteful scenarios I encountered in year 2016.

Anchor Scripture: {Romans 12:21}MSG Translation
"Don't let evil get the best of you, get the best of evil by doing good."

The devil doesn't operate from hell anymore, he dwells among God's people on earth with his ambassadors strategically positioned at every corner of the earth blending into its population, scouting for who to kill, destroy and steal from.

You'll meet the good, bad and the evil, none is without significance.
Never alter any admirable personality because of them. Rather, painstakingly learn from them and acquire new admirable personalities, this way building reasonable amount of wisdom tips that will surge up your value forever.

In the same vain, if any demonic ambassador hurts you or tries to get at you, flush the hurt (just like the "unwanted" content in a water closet is flushed into a soak-away to maintain a distance),  keep them at arms length and love them even more from their well deserved distance.

This way, nothing tampers with your joy, peace of mind, and your many extravagant blessings  freely given from above. You'll be glad you did.

Faithlessness Doesn't Terminate His Faithfulness


A Faithless man is one who remains untrue to what ought to command his fidelity or allegiance, but a Faithful man is one who is loyal, dependable and is prudent in all things.

Anchor Scripture: {Romans 3:4}MSG Translation
"God keeps his word even when the whole word is lying through their teeth."

Subscribing to faithlessness doesn't terminate God's irrevocable faithfulness, for He is full of grace, wisdom, virtue, power, and glory. He owns it all and decides who to extravagantly hand a portion to.

Our wrongdoing only underlines and confirms God's rightdoing. Our bad words don't even make a dent in his good words.

Faithlessness distants us from the blessings He extravagantly dishes out on a platter, but faithfulness grants us access into the citadel of Faithfulness - God.

Choose Faithfulness over Faithlessness and larch unto the one Faithful God who promises to stick by our side and never let us down, for he cannot disown Himself.

Have a Faithful Day Guys!

But I'm Only 17



Somy: Your choice of songs are not tastefully put together, you know the lyrics to all the noisy songs on your cell phone, It's awkward that you do not have a single godly-based song with meaningful content.

Ife: Ahn ahn, Somy, but I'm only 17

Somy: In shock* Wow, seriously?

The above ridiculous conversation ensued between I and my baby sister, I was ashamed on her behalf, but unfortunately, she thought her response was really cool.

You try to correct the 21st century teen, and the distasteful feedback you obtain is "but I'm only 17." Only 17? Really?

News Flash: A lot can happen at age 17!

(Timid) Timothy was called into ministry at age 17

Seventeen year old Nick D'Aloisio set the internet on fire when it was announced that a smartphone he created in his spare time has been bought by yahoo at a whopping $30 Million.

At 17, award winning Belgium based Austro-Nigerian photographer, David Uzochukwu earned accolades from Canon, Flickr, and EyeEm, who named him their 2014 photographer of the year. His client include the Opera Nationale de Paris and Adobe Photoshop. he is also involved in appearnces and humanitarian movements.

Dear teens, never limit your abilities, so much can happen at age 17 and below. Ever imagined channeling the amount of hours invested in seeking pleasure from social media platforms into brainstorming and birthing witty inventions that would earn local and international recognition? It'll be a touche!

You're never too old or too young to dream a new dream and act upon it.

Hey! You'll never remain age 17 for a long time. Seek wisdom, indulge diligence, work creatively and never limit your mind, for your mind is your starting point. What you conceive, you can achieve.

Have a Great Day!

Entitlement Mentality


Entitlement Mentality is a "me me'' affair. It's a selfish way of reasoning.

''It's okay to seek help because we all need help to rise, but it is not okay to feel entitled to receiving help. Help is a privilege not a right''.

Anchor Scripture: {Proverbs 3:5-6}
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not in your own understanding; in all your ways, submit to Him, and He will make your path straight."

Most people especially Nigerians believe it is the sole responsibility of their relatives to foot their bills or provide them with a job when their parents fail. It's typical to get upset when this happens but it is not an ideal mentality. The Entitlement mentality has to stop! What happened to doing or getting it yourself through the strength that God extravagantly disburses?
God delivered me from the Entitlement Mentality, I used to be a victim.

I know an unmarried woman in her mid-thirties who still rains curses on her rich uncle who failed to sponsor her through higher institution. She is always in the habit of blaming her uncle, relatives, but herself for how sour her life turned into instead of channeling all the energy into becoming a better woman.

Growing up, my late mum emphatically reiterated on the importance of becoming independent and obtaining all I crave on my own, instead of relying on others because they could fail just like people closest to her whom she thought were her support system let her down.
Until she eluded herself from the entitlement mentality, things began to take dimensional turns in her favour. Gracious moments were soon actualized in phases.

She continually warned that even as a mother, she could fail me. I failed to comprehend her message because she provided everything I needed. Her message became clearer when she failed to live for my siblings and I, even when she fought vigorously for dear life, the cold hands of death snatched her. My siblings and I learnt the hard way not to rely on people,

It's okay to market your dreams to people that care about your well being, but you owe no one the conviction of how to effectively run your life, vice versa. Never welcome insecure thoughts or allow naysayers project their fears or dissatisfaction over your pursuit of happiness. Only then, will the chain of Entitlement Mentality would be broken forever.


Enjoy The Reason For The Season Guys!

Your Adversary Is Relevant!



Do you know we can never become better versions of ourselves or actualize destiny without the presence of adversaries?

News Flash: Our Promise Land Is Not Empty; It is Filled With Adversaries.

The waggling tongues of adversaries is a proof that we are in our promise land or getting closer to it. Consciously or Subconsciously, our adversaries help us rise because they are in the habit of identifying our flaws or weaknesses, and by that, our consciousness is awoken and the drive to go even harder is prompted.

Being hated by the world is the number one sign that we are on the path of actualizing destiny.

Anchor Scripture:{ Mark 10:30}
"But he shall receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and land, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life."

Success is intricately interwoven with persecution.

In October 2014, an adversary plotted for the epic fall of Linda Ikeji, one of the most successful Bloggers in Nigeria, little did he know he was ushering her into enormous wave and global recognition. The weapon used against her was the same weapon that was used to work in her favour and surge her into greater heights.

Never waste your time lamenting over the ploy of your adversaries, it's not worth it.

Today, Ask God to reveal His purpose for your life and the strength to run with it, elude distractions from naysayers, consistently aim at your focus, and be rest assured that you have the ultimate backing of the Most High, who will never let your feet slip.

BAGGAGE





Whatever overloads you to gives you unrest is a baggage!  It is a long-held attitude perceived as a burdensome encumbrance.

Anchor Scripture: {1Samuel 17:38-40}
"Then Saul outfitted David as a soldier in armor. He put his bronze helmet on his head and belted his sword on him over the armor. David tried to walk but but he could hardly budge.
David told Saul, 'I can't even move with all the stuff on me. I'm not used to this.' And he took it all off.
Then David took his shepherd's staff, selected five smooth stones from the brook and put them in the pocket of his shepherd's pack, and with his sling in his hand he approached Goliath.

There is no shame in being yourself! Fake people have to deal with a lot of baggage because they live in denial and self deceit.

If a 24 inch indian hair and artificial nails is naturally burdensome to you and wouldn't allow you sleep well at night, but because of the desire to belong to a particular group or class of people, you have a baggage on. 
If you're unnecessarily fatigued because of the fake accent you have to put up all day to impress people, you have a baggage on.
If you have too many (unscreened) friends, you have a baggage on. No one made it to the top with too many friends.

Whoever doesn't accept you for who you genuinely are doesn't deserve you. God is obsessed with The Real Deal. Real attracts Real, Fake attracts Fake. Be patient with God to merge you with your identical.

David emerged victorious because he got rid of the baggage. Imagine if he did otherwise by subscribing to the imposition of Saul, God plans wouldn't have been effective in his life.
A baggage doesn't doesn't give room for strategic alliance and flexibility, rather, it creates tons of  new burden(s) that was(were) nonexistent.

Could it be you're not where you ought to be because of baggage you have on? Identify that BAGGAGE today and discard it into the abyss.

Are You Paying Attention?



Wherever you are be all there- Jim Elliot

''People may not tell you how they feel about you, but they will always show you, Pay attention.''

Are you paying attention?

Paying attention cuts across listening to a conversation, it entails perceiving body languages and acting upon it as well.

Often times, the most important decisions are made when we are not paying attention. Are you paying attention to the signs or just moved by mere words or 'justifiable' actions?  Relax and start the evaluation process allover, it will show.

Signs are gestures or actions used to convey information or an instruction. Uninterestingly, not all signs are physical.

In a world filled with more negativity and less positivity, watching closely when others are carried away is a sensitive attribute to inculcate.

Pay attention to people, pay attention to the signs in your life, and pay attention to the world around us, And You'll Win...

Your Mentor May Be Wrong


Only a "Malu" takes in everything without critically evaluating it.

Anchor Scripture: {1John 4:1}
"My dear friends, don't believe everything you hear. Carefully weigh and examine what people tell you."

Attaining a level where you critically handpick principles that work for ''you'' and not for ''them'' is the actual maturity phase of your life. Having a mind of your own and putting it to effective use is where wisdom lies.

A Mentor is one who consistently teaches real solidified principles of core values, such as; character, integrity, and leadership. The role of a mentor is to teach, guide, encourage and to support you. A Mentor-Less individual is headed for the ''Loss Department''.  In the same vain, a Mind-Less person is headed for Ruin or destruction.

The Holy Bible is a valid authenticated standard that has stood the test of time. It is a yardstick for reference, evaluation and investigation. The purpose of the Holy Bible is teach us (on a firsthand basis) how to live, set perspectives and to reveal the secrets in high and low places.

Inspirational books, tapes, seminars and symposiums, (written or organized) by resourced persons are mind-equipping agents. Invest in them!

More so, constructive criticism resolves every doubt, deepens our knowledge on a particular subject or case study and broaden our horizon.

It is not a sin to disagree with your mentor on some controversial subject matters, it is the evidence or proof of your mind been put to use. *You are doing just fine.

Your mentor is not perfect, only God is.

The Mother Factor



When a Mother tenders full support to her favourite offspring, *Nwanne forgerrit, it's the ultimate backing ever needed for the actualization of destiny.
A Mother's love is a divine covering, citadel of peace, and a vessel of grace

Anchor Scripture:{Genesis 25:27-28}
"The boys grew up. Esau became an expert hunter, an outdoors-man. Jacob was a quiet man preferring life indoors among the tents. Isaac loved Esau because he loved his game, but Rebekah loved Jacob.

From the above Anchor Scripture, we take to cognizance that a Mother's love is ordained in Heaven, evidenced by all, and justified by norms. The sensitivity and vulnerability of a woman naturally paves the way into accessing the needful, Mothers are the highest benefactors.

Never downplay the capabilities of a Mother, for they are subtle, manipulative, disciplinarians, strategic illustrators, life-event planners, support system, and warriors all in one.

The quality and credibility of a child's life greatly depends on the Mother-Factor-Effect. Ever wondered why an unstable child can be traced back to a Mother who didn't play her role diligently at every phase of the child's life? Proverbs 31 is a model for every Mother.

Mothers are encouraged not to "spare the rod and spoil the child", their compassionate attribute is usually a weakness.
Dear Mothers, withhold no correction, but above all, correct with love.

*My heart goes out to the Motherless, May God continue to comfort, heal and fill the vacuum that tags along with perpetual void evidenced by the demise of a Mother.

To those with a Living Mother, never take the extravagant gift for granted. YOU HAVE IT ALL...

Have a Dope day guys!

Soul Food To Run With (Proverbs)



- A prudent person sees trouble coming and ducks; a simpleton walks in blindly and is clobbered

- Pound on a fool all you like, you can't pound out foolishness

- Just as lotions and fragrance give sensual delight, a sweet friendship refreshes the soul

- Don't respond to the stupidity of a fool, you'll only look foolish yourself

- Just as a door turns on its hinges, so a lazybones turns back over in bed

- God delights in concealing things, scientists delight in discovering things

- Don't talk about your neighbours behind their backs

- In the heat of an argument, don't betray confidences

- Don't envy bad people

- To win, you need a lot of good counsel

- It's better to be wise than strong; intelligence outranks muscle any day

- Strategic planning is the key to warfare

- Young people are prone to foolishness and fads; the cure comes through tough-minded discipline

- If you stop your ears to the cries of the poor, your cries will go unheard, unanswered

- Do your best, prepare for the worst - then trust God to bring victory.


and All Of The Above is how to live...

New Flame



Whatever 'unapologetically' tickles your fancy at the inception (especially unplanned) is a new flame. Give it time, the tickling will subdue and naturally adjust to its status quo.

Every (new) flame can be rekindled overtime, but this time; planned and deliberate.

Ever wondered why the value of an emotional speech or music that once set your heart on fire the first time it was heard, diminishes or reduces its 'spark effect' the second time it replayed? or the high rise motivation that engulfed you after reading a portion of the Bible or an Inspirational Book that affected your next decision making? or the high-blood-pressure that trapped you until you eventually maintained a (healthy) meaningful conversation with that 'crush' of yours? It's typical. *winks

In your (new) relationship with God, spouse, associations, family, etc, You'll storm the New-Flame-Effect which will diminish, continually making deliberate moves to rekindle the flame, cements its lasting illumination.

Today, Try new things, Spark new flame and Keep it blazing.

Sword Of the Spirit


All who speak in tongues should pray for the power to interpret.
''There are different tongues, none is without meaning''-1 Corinthians 14:10
Speaking in tongues releases the sword of the spirit for spiritual warfare. Familiarize with your ''spiritual sword'' if you have received yours, master its mechanical use, know how it operates, and run with it. In the same light, never ridicule or impose tongue-speaking on those who haven't receive theirs, rather; be patient with them and with God, create a spiritual foundation, nurture it, and cement it. This way, you'll empower your subject with the freedom to independently envisage exploits and obtain their many gifts freely given by the Father.

I sprang up from a religious background that amplified 'speaking in tongues' as a rare gift not accessible to all and disposed to a few. But then, I read my Bible again, this time; more critical, extensive, and in whole.
Currently, I'm trying the word, testing the word and deducing my findings about the word. Indeed, it's been adventurous! Never really understood the magnitude of how big God was/is, and how in-depth His words pierced through, until I went seeking.
Well, uncommon understanding begets uncommon substance.

From a controversial piece I recently bumped into, written by John MacArthur, the author made some relatively sensible statements. "The holy spirit does not gift people with languages just to make interesting noises," was one of them, but then, I began to disagree with him when he claimed "Individual speaking in tongues amongst a congregation is chaotic, especially to unbelievers."

My reaction: God is not an author of confusion!

He failed to establish his facts with two or more Biblical scriptures(witnesses), referencing only 1 Corinthians 14, which didn't give his deduction a touche landing.
The truth is established by two or more witnesses.

Literally, when everybody is talking, no one is talking. Same principle doesn't apply in the spiritual realm when the Holy Spirit is involved. It overshadows its victim, one of its signs is "Babbling of Tongues.''
Kings Saul and David were products of the ''overshadowing'' anointing.  *Peep 1st&2ndKings
Apostle Paul and his team were the first to legally experience the Sword of the Spirit during the Feast of Pentecost. *Peep Acts 2.

In all, the primary purpose of our spiritual gift(s) is for edification.
Today, Edify your Sword Of The Spirit, Personalize it, and Run with it.

DEPRESSION


My heart goes out to every hard worker engulfed in the cold-mourning-room of depression. I've been there too.

Depression is not laziness, same way vulnerability is not stupidity.

Depressed people are not stupid people, they are people vulnerable to the torments of the world. When sufficient discipline to surmount pressure isn't inculcated, the result is a break down (depression).

A young lady with a vision to do exploits narrated her non-fictional story of how she opted out of her regular job to pursue that which was her life assignment. She started off not prepared for the negativity/persecution knotted with "The Path To Getting It Right" which is usually lonely as well, fell into the confiscating hands of depression, locked herself up for 10 days and nights and wept profusely.
...Then, the WORD of God showed up, consoled her, strengthened her for the task ahead, and eventually rose her to an enviable level she least expected.

Depressed people are victim of self pity who focus on the negative (bad debt, cyber bullying, back stabbing friends, loss of a dear one, divorce, isolation, emotional melt down, stereotype etc) leveled against them, and base their lives upon these negative feedback.

Depression is the highest rating factor of mentally induced sicknesses which manifests into physical sicknesses, such as: weight loss, obesity, diabetes, cancer, etc. which may lead to death. It's a real life situation.

Never roll over and play dead in front of the devil (naysayers), you'll empower him (them) even more to torment you harder. Rather, larch unto{ Philippians 4:6 AMP}-
"Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything (every circumstance and situation) by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your (specific) requests known to God."

...bearing in mind that tough times don't last, but tough people do.

Have a Rewarding day guys! May you find happiness doing that which is in line with your divine calling, Amen.

Body Size


One's body size has everything to do with people's perception but nothing to do with the individual's ability.

Whether you're tall, average, short, skinny, chubby or a plus size, the perception about YOU will take a dimensional swipe moments after an effective communication is established.

Ever wondered why a 6 footer is termed big for nothing? or the tinniest girl whom everyone undermined becomes the most dreaded when she tops the class? or that plus-sized singer who everyone ridiculed because of his unflattering looks, until he maximizes the use of his vocal ability and gives the audience a run for their money?

Anchor Scripture:{1Samuel 17:41-47} MSG Translation- Paraphrased
 "As the Philistine paced back and forth, his shield bearer in front of him, he noticed David. He took one look down on him and sneered - a mere youngster, apple-cheeked and peach-fuzzed
David answered, 'You come at me with sword and spear and battle ax. I come at you in the name of God-of-the-Angel-Armies, the God of of Israel's troops whom you curse and mock'. The battle belongs to God - He's handling you to us on a platter."

Goliath went with the sword, David went with the word.

Are you in alignment with God's desire for your life? That's all that matters.

Let no one instill in you what you ought to be or look like before you accomplish a desired task. Above all, dress your age, familiarize with your body, and handpick what to wear for events as the situation demands, for the good Lord has given you a body that can withstand any pressure.

Today, ignore that deceptive body size, and go about your activity doing good and conquering every Goliath.

Have a Beautiful day Guys! *Kisses

You Are Not That Important To The Devil


News Flash: You're not that important to the devil.

As a matter of fact, the devil terms you insignificant, you almost don't exist in his sight.

Since the devil's disgraceful exit from Heaven, all he ever tries to do is get back at God as an act of revenge.  The sole reason he played the pivotal role of crafting Adam and Eve's ruin can be linked it.

Anchor Scripture: {John 10:10}
"The devil comes only to steal, to kill and to destroy"

From the above anchor scripture, we take to cognizance that nothing good can come out of the devil. His antagonizing role can be likened to the role of an antagonist warring against a lead character in an action movie who indulges in perpetuating every good.

The only reason he torments humans is because he is jealous of the unconditional love preferentially expressed by God to them.
Literally, the only way to get at anybody you detest is to go after that which they treasure or guard jealously.

...and that's all the devil tries to do.

An idle mind is the devil's workshop. Steadily equip yourself with the word and around the word. Never create a room to tolerate his antics, if there is ever going to be a room, let be a WAR ROOM.

Have a Productive day and week ahead!

DISCERNMENT


Discernment is the ability to judge well.

I know of a 'self-acclaimed' sensitive person who acts upon his emotion. He literally believes and defends anyone he holds in high esteem. A pitiful face and a motivational plea would cajole him as well.

A friend of his once asked for an amount of money to ''execute a business deal'' and this ''self acclaimed'' sensitive being emptied his savings for his friend who went on to invest the fund in MMM(the supposed business deal). *funny and worrisome right?

Anchor Scripture:{Ephesians 1:17-19}
Paul advised, "Ask the God of our master, Jesus Christ, the God of glory, to make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you see exactly what He is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life He has for His followers, oh, the utter extravagance of His work in us who trust Him.''

Are you sensitive enough to recognize a prudent person in a world filled with acute pretenders? or are you easily cajoled into the numerous ''stories that touch the heart'' that never elude the lips of the present generational breed who are engulfed in greed and selfishness?
God will never entrust in your custody daring tasks to execute, if you are a victim of perpetual manipulation.

Sensitivity is strongly knotted to the Spirit of Discernment which is a gift of the Holy Spirit.

Are you sensitive enough to discern 'right' from 'almost right'?
Think about it.

Your Prison...



At some point in our lives, we'll all get imprisoned. No one can escape it.

A prison is a building to which people are legally committed as a punishment for a crime or while awaiting trial. Also, a prison can be referred to any restrictive environment, such as a harsh academy, home or zone.

There are Two types of Prisons. They consist of the following;
i. Physical Prison ( a building for the convicted and awaiting trial persons)
ii. Psychological Prison (a harsh restrictive zone)

The physical prison is an undesired arena to be confined in. It's effects can be traumatic, especially when those convicted of a particular crime are supposedly innocent. Other times, it is a rehabilitation home where convicts or awaiting trial persons come out reformed and become better citizens.

Unfortunately, some people pass through both prisons...Well, the Psychological Prison is the bone of contention in today's post.

Any state that makes you unhappy, dissatisfied or depressed  is YOUR PRISON. It could be as a result of demeaning insults from a loved one, family crisis, debt, stagnancy, mid-life crisis, hardship, a dissatisfied job, lack, zero support system, impossible ventures, near death experiences, worry, sickness etc.

The jail breaker for every (psychological) Prisoner is Prayer. *This is easier theorized than practicalized.

Anchor Scripture {Luke 22:41-42} MSG Translation
"He pulled away from them about a stone's throw, knelt down, and prayed, 'Father, remove the cup from me.' But please, not what I want.What do you want?''

Pain/Psychological Prison isn't an easy venture, from the above anchor scripture, we'll take to cognizance that even Jesus wasn't a ''suffer head.'' He dreaded anguish, yet, He put on the armour of contentment, accepting His fate.

Prayer helps to lighten the load, because it is an act of lifting up of our hearts and minds to God in silence or in words. It simply means communicating or sharing our thoughts with God. Literally, a problem shared is a problem half solved and that's what prayer does.

It'll interest you to know that prayer isn't enough. Backing it up with contentment and thanksgiving (which is usually an impossible act during the incarceration phase) is the only means of sustenance and the eventual prison break (break through).

YOUR PRISON term is YOUR TRIAL phase, pass through it gracefully and emerge a Victor.

FEAR


Fear paralyses all that is beautiful. The moment fear is eliminated from the equation of our lives, tapping into creation process becomes handy.

Fear is synonymous with insecurity, and insecurity leaves an individual at a spot.

The only reason fearful/insecure people never make moves is because they are afraid they'll never get something better compared to that which they claim to be stuck with. The mentality has been proven wrong since the fall of Adam.

Switch fear with faith, and watch the unusual begin to happen.

Anchor Scripture{Proverbs 29:25}MSG Translation
"The fear of human opinion disables; trusting in God protects you from that."

It's typical to wallow in fear for a while, but you're not allowed to enable it overshadow you for too long. What are you afraid of?  Is it about your family? Your Career? Your Spouse? Your Friends? Your Relationship? That Unforeseen Promotion You Rightly Deserve? That Business Proposal that's on the verge of getting sealed but funny stories are beginning to spring up? Your Personal Life And All You've Involved Yourself With? Walk in righteousness! Fear not! and Trust God! -For He is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all we could ever ask or imagine {Ephesians 3:20}

Today, subscribe to faith to surge up that morale level, which will give you every ounce of positive vibe(s) you'll be needing to take over new territories and do exploits, for faith is an attitude.

Have a 'FAITH-full' day guys!

Queen Esther...


Thought I knew so much about Queen Esther until I saw the movie titled "One night with the King." It gave me an amplified vision/version of Queen Esther's characteristics.

Her unique qualities will make you love her even more, more than the King ever did.

-Queen Esther was a reader
-She was charitable
-She was free spirited
-She was pure (a virgin)
-She was teachable (she asked the King's personal aid to teach her what impresses the King)*Smart woman, Smart move!
-She passed her interview (she was truthful about her background amidst the fact that it wasn't a juicy one.)
-She was wise enough not to tell it all (she kept some confidential issues to herself)
-She was a charmer (her weapon was her intelligent conversation)
-She was vulnerable but never stupid
-She made the King fall head over heels in love with her. He remained loyal to her as well(only a few women can pull that stunt off with ease)
-She was a woman of virtue (Her dignity was so intact)
-She never gave up trying to make amends when she 'faultered'
-She was a prayer warrior (and just like Jesus, she prayed for the pain to pass away if it were God's will when she was in distress)*Naturally, no one loves 'sufferhead'
-She didn't remain silent for a long time (she spoke up when it was time for her to speak up!)*Don't be a dummy!
-She fasted too
-She had the interest of her people (the Jews)
-She broke the protocol/norm *Calculated risk is key
-She was such a good actress *She stuck to her script
-She brilliantly justified her change of name sighting Jacob
-She was made queen for such a time for her reign
-She found favour before man and before God!
-She received the blessing of her uncle, Mordecai, and prided herself graciously in it.
-She was faithful
-She was not the most beautiful out of the other maidens, but she was comfortable in her own skin
-She wasn't perfect
-She was the daughter of Benjamin, the daughter of the Most High God!

Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. {Isaiah 40:31} Also, God is in the habit of transforming nobodies into somebodies.
What are trusting God for? Receive His word, Believe His word and Become His word.

Trust you were inspired by the life of Queen Esther!

''Follow Follow''



"Follow Follow" is the 'in' thing now. It always has though. Even Jesus was a victim.

Most people tend to follow people (especially on social media platforms) for the wrong reasons. They are either monitoring, analyzing, or seeking for cheap popularity and other benefits, immediately their expectations are not met, they cut themselves off and defect to other preys with immediate effect.

Who are you following? Who is following you?  Are you in their space for the right reasons? Are they in your space for the right reasons? Watch it!

Even Peter(the mouthed guy) and John(the beloved) with all their anointing went back to fishing when ''The Celebrity Jesus'' was no more even after they had tasted the goodness of their master and experienced His mighty works first hand.

And as for the people, they followed Jesus because;
-The hungry wanted to be fed
-The poor wanted to be rich
-The sick wanted to obtain healing
-The dead wanted to be resurrected
-The naked wanted clothing
-The blind wanted to regain their sight
-The deaf wanted to speak
-The infamous wanted to become famous

...and when He was charged to be crucified, not a soul could stand by him! How disappointing and heartbreaking.

When you separate the conditional benefits off an individual, can you be by their side through the thick and thin? Likewise, can they stand by you through the thick and thin?

Rely on the God, the 'revealer' of secret things to step into your situation and do what only He can do. Cos when He opens your eyes to see, just like He opened the eyes of Hagar(the Egyptian handmaid of Sarah and the mother of Ishmael, first born son of Abraham) to see the well in the desert, things will never remain the same.
More so, ask God to open your eyes to notice the right people who genuinely follow you for the right reasons and have your overall interest at heart.

Today, apply caution and eliminate every "follow follow'' in your life.

Have a Great day.

MORALE



Maturing from childhood to adulthood wasn't an interesting phase for me. Each day, I prayed to become an adult real quick. My lesson teacher, Uncle Daniel, would beat me to stupor until I aced all my assignments and took first position in class. He ignorantly thought he was boosting my morale level because I began to ace my assignments and come out tops in class, but unknown to him, he was harming me. My mum was another "Agile Mopol", she supported the course and didn't hesitate to praise Uncle Daniel even when Daddy Shina, the neighbour, continually visited to alert her of the child abuse that transpired while she was away. She always turned a deaf ear.

I grew up in a perpetually tensed atmosphere, for I lived in fear. Unknown to the Uncle Daniel and Mummy, they were harming me psychologically, physically, emotionally and otherwise. "Beatings will continue until morale improves" was the anthem. Even when I aced my exams, Mummy would still call me a local champion, emphatically stating that my mates were winning common wealth scholarships. Oh Mummy! lol. *It wasn't funny then, glad that I can laugh about that phase now.

Until I bagged a 2.1 in my first degree, mummy didn't take me serious. She eventually began to build confidence and believe in me overtime, and that (type of morale) changed my life forever...

Beatings will never surge up any morale level. Words, Actions and Patience will. Speak the right words into (an) individual/people continually, display an immeasurable amount of affection to convince them that you truly care, and be patient with them to let them make their mistakes and learn from it.  Above all, guide them in the path of righteousness and pray for them, for prayer works!

Anchor Scripture {Colossians 3:21} MSG Translation
"Parents, don't come down too hard on your children or you'll crush their spirits."

Help build somebody's Morale level today!


Have a Swell day guys...

GRACE...


Don't ever take "Grace" for granted.

Every man has a level of Grace that rests upon his life but some level of Grace are higher than other level of Grace.

If the Grace upon your life comes in good measures, pressed down, shaken together and is running over, don't abuse it, for there are consequences!

Anchor scripture:{John 5:14}
"A little later, Jesus found him in the temple and said, you look wonderful! You are well! Don't return to a sinning life or something worse might happen."

It is amazingly true that Grace breaks protocols on our behalf, but again, these "unmerited rights'' can terminated if sin creeps into the scene. Sin messes up the entire process and in most occasion, leaves the victim at a zero.

"Don't return to a sinning life or something worse might happen." Grace doesn't entertain sexual immorality, theft, lies, cowardice, scandal, bankruptcy, malpractice or any sinful act. Any doctrine or preaching that condones otherwise is a demonic one.

Grace isn't a cover for sin, rather, Grace annuls the sin of a repentant sinner who resolves never to go back to a sinning life and makes conscious/intentional moves to remain equally yoked with Christ.

Look away when ignorant people use grace as a cover! They are subscribing to the grace of the devil which definitely has an expiry date. But hey! seek for the Grace of God! It does great and mighty things and add no sorrow or "guilty conscience" to its seeker.

"The Grace of God is like insurance. It will help you in time of need without any limit"- Sathya Sai Baba

Don't abuse Grace, use Grace. The absence of grace leads to disgrace.

Today, Use Grace, Do Grace and Be Grace, for a Graceful life is a wonderful (fulfilling) life.

Have a Grace-Filled day!

The Law Of Contentment



"Where there is no control over desire, there is no control over life and destiny." (Dr. Paul Enenche)

- If you have no control over your desire, you can't control your life

- The absence of contentment is the pathway of compromise

- Contentment is the bedrock of character, character is the key to destiny

- To be content in life is to last long on earth

Ever realized why lazy people who are unbothered with life live long? They are content in their own world! *Don't be lazy though, lol.

{1 Timothy 6:68}
"But godliness with contentment (great gain), we brought nothing to the world, we are taking nothing back."

{Jeremiah 17:11}
"Get money by cunning and dubious means, in the end, you shall be confirmed a fool."

Here's the gag;
* Be satisfied with what you have and where you are and trust God to take you higher.
*Absence of contentment - Latency to compromise.
* No control over life - No control over desire.
* Absence of discipline - Doorway to disaster.
* Unprincipled achievement of success - Premature death.

I needed some mind-lifting soul food today, thought it was needful to highlight one of Dr.Paul's Laws of Life instead of doing the norm. Hope you are blessed as well?

Contentment is everything! Gehazi wasn't given a second chance to make resolution for his lack of contentment. May greed never consume us, rather, may we live in contentment, trusting God to perfect all that concerns us, Amen.

Have a "Content'' day hunnies!

Failure:


Sometimes, it is the best way to figure out where you are going...

Failure means lack of success. And when there is lack, seek knowledge!
Knowledge ushers in success overtime. The process of acquiring knowledge to tackle lack may seem painfully slow, but here's the good-news: There is improvement, and there is a learning process.

Giving it all up isn't profitable. The world needs your time, prayer, talents and treasures.
Even scripture never promised the world was an easy venture, It required different level or phases of battles before victory became eminent. (Take a cue from King David and St.Paul)

In the course of failure; hustle, thrive, soar even higher still. There is no shame in hustling, the eyes of your spectators won't even harm you, I promise.*lol. It's the mind you'll have to train/convince to remain focused and elude distraction. Some of these distraction include; procrastination, naysayers, insecurity, opinion advocates (those who advise others but themselves), evil communication/bad company, etc.

To overcome failure, you'll be needing a lot of positive vibes, 'fresh air', mentoring and discipline(long suffering). Interestingly, failure is part of success.

Anchor Scripture{Proverbs 24:16}
"The righteous may fall seven times but still get up, but the wicked will stumble into trouble."

The mastery of failure transforms fear into action. And you see, there's no shame in falling or failing, but if you'll ever fall, ensure you fall forward, arise, ''shake your tail feathers'' and get back on track.
Never forget, the mastery of failure transforms fear into action and action yields results.

Have a Dope Weekend ahead guys! *You know it's all love from my angle.

You Think You're Having A Bad Day?


It actually gets really tiring making expenses over something you thought the initial investments ought to have covered up for, but hey! such is life, it throws unexpected shots. It is ones' sole responsibility of mastering the art of goal keeping, so that even when some shots are fired and conceded, overall defeat is not preeminent.

Yesterday started off really cool for me, it always does when I start with God. Along the way, list of expenses began to roll in, deep in thoughts, I termed everything " a process" and quietly talked to God to help speedy up the process so that a new phase is unraveled. Above all, my thanksgiving list was quite juicy and His praise never left my lips still.
Moreover, It was my mum's remembrance day and I had already keyed into the miracle which I get to experience on the 15th day of every month. *My mum lives on, this is personal!

There was a situation of a flat tyre, as we pulled over beside the available "vulcanizer" to get it fixed, I stepped out of the vehicle which was the normal thing to do, little did I know I was going to meet the shocker of a life time.
A "pure-water" hawker approached me, she was filled with hearty smiles and rushed to give me a warm hug. She exclaimed, "Are you not Aunty Chidinma's Sister from Anambra State?"  
For goodness sake, I am the first born child and daughter from my egg-mummy and the names of my younger sisters were Chinelo, Nwando and Ife, ''I thought to myself.''
"You don't remember me? She continued... I know you! My name is Happiness, I used to work as a nurse in your sister's pharmacy in Port Harcourt, ROFAB Pharmacy is the name of the pharmacy."

My head(memory) began to reboot and recall past memories from my one-year stay in Port Harcourt after my secondary school education. Yes, there was an "Aunty Chidinma" who owned one ROFAB Pharmacy and I helped her manage the place as well, I lived with her through out my stay. She was "an aunt" not a sister.
 Eventually, everything began to add up but Happiness remained unrecognizable to me.

As Happiness began to relate her life ordeal to me, I was deeply moved to tears. I was trying to solve the equation of how a once "chubby-light-skinned-young-good looking" nurse transformed into an "old-suffering-dark looking-unattractive" woman, hawking overloaded basin of "pure water."
How could this be? Oh! how I cried! Her ''Calabar-English'' accent was the only thing I could remember about her, it didn't change one bit. Oh! I equally remembered she wasn't up to 5ft.
I was barely 15 years old going on 16 during my stay in Port Harcourt after secondary school, I'm 25 years old at the moment, feel free to do the mathematics. Ten years was and is such a long time! coupled with the fact that I was such a baby at the time (even though I thought I was really grown at the time).

She(Happiness) narrated how she furthered her studies, lost her dad, got evicted from her former apartment in Port Harcourt, relocated to Abuja and got evicted a second time where they seized all her belongings (including her credentials) and how she couldn't pick a dime from the place because she couldn't pay to obtain any of it, she further narrated how the cloth she was wearing was given to her by a church member and how her fiance who once refused her travelling to Dubia to work when the opportunity came, dumped her without a trace(he changed his sim card and equally changed location). *Some guys sha!
It was a lengthy heart-rendering conversation and we needed to adjourn the conversation, other activities of the day were calling. I asked for her digits, she said she had none anymore, she went on to say so much, and above all, she said she was homeless!

I gave her some money to manage herself for a while, wrote down my number on a piece of paper, handed it over to her and asked her to please call me.

As I write this piece, I'm still bewildered in shock.

If you're moved to help get Happiness a home, please don't hesitate to place a call or send a message to my email (details are in my profile). It's ''Operation Take Happiness Off The Street!" Nothing is too small.
Together we can do this right? Yes we can!

Are you still having a bad day? I don't think so!... Have you said Thank You Jesus Today?

*Indulge gratefulness as the watchword, bear in mind also, that people are gnashing their teeth in abject poverty.

Have a Solemn day Fam.

Virtue Left Me...



There are TWO times virtue leaves an individual. First, is when he is filled with the Holy Spirit (and his works are been manifested) but he falls into sin. Second, is when an individual is filled with the Holy Spirit but performs tons of miracle and is left exhausted.

Let's term the former "lower virtue" and the latter " higher virtue."

Both category of virtue need Prayer (intercessors/ intercessory) to be reinstated. Uninterestingly, the lower virtue takes a lot of time to be reinstated. However, the higher virtue can be reinstated with ease.

Virtues are ethical behaviours showing high moral standards. Subscribing to sin leads to loss of the lower virtue, which send the sufferer into depression, stagnation, confusion, doubt, disbelief, trauma, sober moments, and all other negative psychological imbalance.

Subscribing to holiness without introducing sin into the picture during workings of miracles reintroduces the sufferer/victim into the next level (phase) of higher dimension.

Luke 8: 45-46
"Who touched me?" Jesus asked, while everyone was denying it, Peter said, "Master, people are crowding all around and pushing you from every side." But Jesus answered, ''Virtue left me!'' The woman with the issue of blood knew that she could not hide, so she came trembling and knelt down in front of Jesus."

Virtue means strength, but in the above context, it was used to denote purity.

Both losses of virtue need intense prayer and other spiritual exercises to be reinstated even though one leaves you agonized and dejected, and the other brings on sparkles and fortifies the body even more.

Never lose the "lower virtue" you'll suck at being you, it takes only the extravagant grace of God to revive you and make you functional once more.

Be virtuous in your dealings and if you're going to lose your virtue, lose your 'Higher Virtue!'


Have a High-level-Virtue-Filled day guys! *winks.

The ''New'' Beast


A beast is not just an ugly creature with ten horns and seven faces as referenced in the book of Revelation 13. If you possess identical characteristics such as; having a loud mouth, being boastful and blasphemous, *nwanne forgerrit, you're a beast.

A pretty/handsome face with an ugly mind = Beast. Why is this equation tangible? Humans are in the habit of accessing or passing judgement based on the outward, only God is always in the habit of accessing and making his final verdict based the inward.

Peep{Jeremiah 17:10}
"I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give each man according to his ways, According to the results of his deed."

{Luke 16:15}
"Then He said to them, you appear righteous in the public, but God knows your heart. What this world honours is detestable in the sight of God."

You see, what society sees and calls monumental, God sees through and calls monstrous. We live in a world where people draw their conclusion based on all they perceive with zero research or thorough scrutiny, and It'll interest you to know that the new generation man is filled with antics and has mastered 'the art of fakery' with ease. With this, they find it easy to manipulate the psychic of their prey.

Beware of the ''new'' beast. They are no longer ugly-looking, they have mastered the art of animation and formation, and have situated themselves among God's right-living people. They're the perfect portrait of all you've envisioned or fantasized about. Only the Spirit-filled with the extravagant gift of discernment can distinguish an individual.

Separate yourself from people with 'beastility characteristics' and eliminate any trace 'beasticide seed' that's subconsciously building up within you.


Have a Beast-Free day guys! *winks

Above all, Gag Thy Tongue!

       Quit sharing ridiculous bad news and gossips, you're not a garbage truck.

Everybody is fighting their unique battles and running their race. Before you stoop so low or subscribe to gossiping about another (especially their private lives), think again.

It's every shade of wrong to make others a topic/subject of your discussion especially when you know nothing about their lives.  We live in a world digital world where people now comfortably predict the lives of others for a living, either from pictures, outdoor events, get-together, etc and can affirm their assertion is a 100% correct.

Words hurt, words heal, the power to make or to maim is in the mouth. Watch what you say! Gossiping about others behind their back them makes you behind them. If you have nothing nice to say, then don't say anything at all.

Most people spend too much time trying to figure out how others live, forgetting that their own lives needs to evaluated, reevaluated and put together to aid in their development process.

Are you living a life of purpose? Does your life glorify God and is worthy of emulation? What is your own quota to humanity? On judgement day, will you be able to give a comprehensive report on work(s) done?

If you can't confidently answer the above questions truthfully and relate it with your life's result, then it's time to quit investing wordless time trying to bring another down or make them look bad before people, rather, be caught glorifying their good works and discipline yourself towards becoming the best you can be and watch all things work together for your good.

Psalm 34:13
"Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit."

Be gracious in your speech and motives.

DISCIPLINE


Most people are in the habit of using their personality as a yardstick to accessing other people's personality. That is wrong in every ramification!

That you're not disciplined enough to maintain a healthy conversation with the opposite sex "without catching feelings" doesn't mean others will subscribe to your composition. That you're not disciplined enough to look away from that beautiful nanny when you and wifey are having confrontations will warrant another hubby to look in the direction of his nanny.

The above differences and much more which are too many to be outlined are termed "individual differences."
In truth, positive traits don't come easy, they go hand in gloves with a lot of self discipline and strict adherence to the word of God.

More so, individual weaknesses vary as well, just like individual strengths or capabilities vary.  That you have a lot of complex issues/insecurities going on doesn't mean the 'guy or babe' next door is suffering from your mental illness.

Every human is born mortal and is exposed to positive and negative traits/composition because the mortal nature encompasses the knowledge of the good and evil. *The forbidden fruit rings a bell to you right?

Figure out your weakness(es) and consciously indulge discipline through God's extravagant assistance. It's a conscious work and walk.

Have a Fab day.

EXEMPTION



What's your grace level like?  Is it pressed down, shaken together and spilling over like that of Joshua and Caleb?  Can it exempt you from tragic circumstances, misdemeanor or negative atmospheres?

Everybody is exposed to grace but not everybody is disposed to grace, for grace-overflow is birthed by total surrender to the instruction, guidance and absolute trust in the lord.

Grace breaks protocols on one's behalf.

Anchor Scripture: {Numbers: 32:10-12}
"And God angry - oh did he get angry! He swore: They'll never get to see it; none of those who came up out of Egypt who are twenty years and older will ever get to see the land I promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. They weren't interested in following me - their hearts weren't in it. None, except for Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite, and Joshua son of Nun; they followed me - their hearts were in it."

Joshua and Caleb oozed of grace. They were the only ones exempted from the agonizing ordeal that was to befall the people of Israel. They walked in total surrender to the directives of God and they were gracefully rewarded for their action.

Ever wondered why God had to subscribe to swearing? He was deeply moved by their level of loyalty! The fact that they were young adults (youths), didn't deter them from acting upon the commandment of God in swift obedience, believing in Him, having faith in Him, trusting Him and committing their hearts to Him.

How intense is your commitment with God? Only In-depth commitment yields Grace-immeasurable.

Commit yourself today by taking that personal relationship with God to another level and watch your life spill of grace.

Have a Productive guys!

Don't Be In A Rush To Become A Teacher


It'll interest you to know that teachers have the most noble profession on earth. If you're a teacher or a prospect teacher, bottles up! *e no easy.

Teaching is a highly responsible work. It's exhausting, it entails a whole lot of discipline to prepare self. Teachers are blessed with the gift of impacting knowledge, guiding and molding their subjects in the right path.

Anchor Scripture: {James 3:2} MSG Translation
"Teachers are held to the strictest standards. And none of us is strictly qualified. We get it wrong nearly every time we open our mouths. If you could find someone whose speech was perfectly true, you'd have a perfect person, in perfect control of life."

Why do teachers have the most sensitive job on earth? 
It easy... They make use of their vocal abilities (speech), it's their tool for battle. A carelessly placed word out of their mouth can turn harmony into chaos, throw mud on a reputation, mislead or misdirect, it can manipulate the hearts of an entire progeny and even more. 

From the positive angle, teachers have the super power of converting the above mentioned negativity into the positive. The  responsibility of  blessing, directing, guiding, coaching, etc, have been vested on them. 

Don't be in such a hurry to be a teacher, adequate preparation is entirely needed for the ambiguous task. Teachers learn everyday to meet up to the standards of the ever diversifying world.
And for your information, the world has records of great teachers but there's never been records of any perfect teacher.  

Have a Blessed day guys!

Sons Of Sarah!... Get In Here!

 
Ladies, look away! I'm the only one permitted to view. lol

Hubby, Future Hubbies, here's a quickie on Hubby roles thoughtfully penned down by St. Peter. You'll love. *smiles

Sons of Sarah,

Be good husbands to your wives. *Be thoroughly good with them. They're so frail even though their tongues are opposite. Their overreaction most times is geared towards the overall benefit, learn to perceive that from behind the scene, and you'll be glad you did.

Honour them, delight in them. As women they lack some of your advantages. *It's obvious you're the lion and they're the lambs, respect their lamb-like features. They're aware your ego is on another level. Even when you want to show yourself, 'bros calm down' they're aware you're an overall softie.
Show her off, the original plan and idea was/is to disburse 'pepper' into any 'pepperbody.' hahaha

But in your new life of God's grace, you're equals. Treat your wives, then, as equals so your prayers don't run aground. *Bros, all this is trying to explain is that it's a "partnership" venture not "sole-proprietorship" venture. Subscribe to her recommendation/critique and watch your life blossom. Not forgetting that appeasing her is the only password to answered prayer.

*Each day, ensure you're taking baby steps into becoming the giant you've envisioned.
  Each day, ensure you're adhering strictly to the commands of the Heavenly Father
  Each day, ensure you're keenly subscribing to every qualities enumerated above. For no one rocks (future) fatherhood like you do even when they try, you're the apple of your (future) daughter's eye, lightener of your (future) son's heart, warrior of your treasured (future) wife and ruler of nations.

Daughters Of Sarah!...Get In Here!

     *Guys, look away... #Yimu. lol

Wives, Future wives, here's a quickie on wifey roles thoughtfully penned down by St. Peter, You'll love. *smiles

={1 Peter 3:1-6}=

Daughters of Sarah,

Be good wives to your husbands, responsive to their needs. There are husbands who, indifferent as they are to any words about God, will be captivated by your life of holy beauty. *Being more spiritually grounded than him was the original plan and should be reinstated.

What matters is not your outer appearance - the styling of your hair, the jewelry you wear, the cut of your clothes - but your inner disposition. *Be spontaneous. You can pull both (inward and outward) stunts off with ease. It's safer that way you know. lol

Cultivate your inner beauty, the gentle, gracious kind that God delights in. The holy women of old were beautiful before God that way, and were good loyal wives to their husband. Sarah for instance taking care of Abraham, would address him as "my dear husband.'' You'll be true daughters of Sarah if you do the same, unanxious and unintimidated. *Insecure what? Never! You can't be graciously edified with tons of goodness smitten allover and feel less of a woman. Dang! You're Queen! Chin up! else, your crown slips away!

*Each day should be an improvement of the former.
  Each day should entail you're moving forward towards the actualization of your dreams, having your eyes fixed on the goal.
  Each day should be a routinary menu of upgrading in every ramification, because you're the limited edition of your brand, your own original's original cos no one can do it better than you do even when they try, for; "You're your OWN's You!"

#Daughters of Sarah! What's up?!

Suffer In Silence!


Who hurt you? Who made your insecurity level skyrocket? Who took advantage of your genuineness? Who told you that you'll never amount to nothing? Be content to let God set things right on your behalf!

Are you suffering over an unjust cause? Suffer in silence.

Jesus' life on earth and agonizing journey to the cross is a typical illustration of suffering in silence. Interestingly, Jesus prayed to The Father at every step or move He made all His life. He endured to the end and emerged victorious by conquering death.

-Some examples of the prayer life of Jesus include the following;
1. After His baptism when He was about to commence ministry works.
2. Before choosing his disciples.
3. Before taking any decision.
4. On the mount of transfiguration with Peter, James and John.
5. At the garden of Gethsemane before he was tried to be crucified.
6. At the cross. etc

Ever wondered why the disciples didn't ask to be taught the logic of signs and wonders but to be taught how to pray? Prayer is Key!

Are you;
* From a dysfunctional home? Suck it up!
* In an awful marriage or relationship? Suck it up!
* Struck with a poor health? Suck it up!
* Psychologically down and tired with the throes life throws at you? Suck it up!
* Painstakingly nurturing your career path and a measurable amount of success is not evidenced? Suck it up!
* Unlucky with meeting the right friends? Suck it up!
* A victim of rape, abuse, torture and other negative vices? Suck it up!
* Living in abject poverty with zero hope assurance? Suck it up!

It is true that a problem shared is a problem half solved, but the best way to suffer in silence is to take it up to the Lord in prayer.

Stop telling your problem to people who ain't close ties, 80% don't care and the other 20% are glad you have them. -Lou Holtz

     A diagram illustrating human division of thoughts.... Most people don't care!

In-depth prayer to God births divine orchestrated strategies used to terminate every shade of negative vice and attribution.

Anchor Scripture:{1 Peter 2:23}
"They called Him every name in the book and He said nothing back. he suffered in silence, content to let God set things right."

The Long Distance Runner!


Some run short distances, others; moderate distances, but hey! Bottles up for the long distance runner! He is that runner who perseveres to the end even in the face of adversities.

The long distance runner is one who becomes overwhelmed with the burdensome race filled with thorns and throes, and is tempted to opt out. But God steps in, opens his eyes with an amplified vision of the finish line and renews his strength to enable him continue with the final lap in the quest to actualize destiny.

The long distance runner subscribes to routinary discipline/mortification, but overtime, is rewarded handsomely.

Anchor Scripture: {Hebrew 12:12-13}
"So don't sit around on your hands! No more dragging your feet! Clear the path for long distance runners so no one will trip and fall, so no one will step in a hole and sprain an ankle. Help each other out. And run for it!"

The long distance runner needs human support as well. No man ever lived in isolation, else, his life becomes brutish, short, absurd and not worth living. In the same vain, the path of the athlete needs to remain clear (void of distraction) so he doesn't slip and have a disastrous fall.

Adversities are signs that you're near your victorious empire. Don't give up, He 'gat' you.

#Your promise land is not empty, they are filled with giants. It's going to be a bloody fight but don't be appalled, for the good Lord has trained your hands for battle(s). Trust in him and you'll never be forsaken or left aback.

Have a Fab Week ahead!

DISTRACTION


We all get distracted at some point in our lives. Our area of respective weakness(es) determines the gravity at which this stronghold termed "distraction" dominates our daily affairs.

Those who know me personally can attest to the fact that I'm a great talker, but then, the only time I get talking are moments when I get to see them. Most of the time, I'm deeply engrossed with work, work, work. Therefore, the next time you see me running my mouth in public, please don't judge me, for those moments are my 'gateaway' moments. *reception of fresh air is allowed abeg. lol

The act of distraction can be likened to the act of a little child whose been held behind closed doors all day long and finally obtains exit to go out to play with other friends in the block. Only a disciplined child would know when to wrap it up for the day. But an undisciplined child would even forget that he/she came from another home.

No one can wholly escape distraction, whether consciously or subconsciously. But it is important to know when to withdraw. Yes, It is possible.

Are you a social media addict? Don't be distracted by how the data bundles are becoming inexpensive by the day, don't waste yourself in the process, it's only a trap! Addicted to Porn? You're selling your soul to the devil! Addicted to the company of many friends? You'll hurt yourself in the process!
Whatever you put before God is your god!

The antidote to Distraction is Discipline.

I'm a typical sanguine with weaknesses attributed to my temperament trait, until I began to master the art of withdrawal, it helped develop my innate melancholic trait which I was clueless about. I'm still a work in progress though but the dramatic change its positive effect had on me is evidenced to all.

What distracts you a great deal? What robs you of  your time? Is it worth it? Know when to return to your cave and get the most out of your productive self; for everything The Maker created was good and He has given each and everyone of us power to dominate the earth.

Ever wondered why He didn't give such powers to His angels?... Subscribe to Discipline and eliminate all shades of Distraction today!

Have an Exhilarating Weekend ahead!

There is Space In The Manger!

    No space in the Inn? he he, look around, there is space in the manger!

There is nothing wrong with starting small, but there is everything wrong with not starting at all. The comfort zone is "artificial."

We live in a society where every one is "rich" and nobody wants to affiliate with the grass root.
In all sincerity, looking good is good business, but never fake it (lie/pretend about it) while trying to make it. There is no sin in thriving. Never be ashamed to hustle. Whatever your hands get to do, do it! For He has promised to Bless the work of our hands.

What are you passionate about? What gets your attention and interest @ a 100%? Start from your level, even at a level which may seem unfair to your status. It may include working as a freelancer or being underpaid in an undesired organization. Here's the heavenly promise: The Lord of the harvest will cause rain to water your field in due season.

Remember Joseph was working in Jail (interpreting classified dreams), Paul was writing (working) in prison, his works (books) are yardsticks for life assessment till date and for the coming generation undoubtedly. Noah worked his ass off with no pay while building the ark (coupled with the fact that he passed through a non-existent Engineering academy). David fought (worked) all the battles to ease the workload for his son Solomon.

When it seems like your wall is falling apart, remember the Blessed Mother of Jesus, Virgin Mary, was due to be delivered of the saviour of the world and all the inns at the time were full, they subscribed to using the manger which was a mockery to humanity.
In all, the three wise men were still able to locate them and gift the Infant Jesus with all they had brought. More so, the infant Jesus grew to become the Messiah and the King of all the Earth and the Heavens. #The favour and blessing of the Lord will locate you today, Amen!

Elude yourself from distraction (material, emotional and psychological needs), Focus on your focus, aim at the goal with strategic alliance, Hold firm on God's word daily and watch the blessings of the Lord locate you at the appointed time; for he teaches us to profit. {Isiaih 48:17}

Feeling low? It's time to rise! No one actualized destiny mourning through the entire journey.

Have a Blessed day guys! It can only get better...

The Natural Man

     Never do real stuffs with the natural man, you'll get burnt in the process.

The natural man is said to be foolish, clueless, obstinate, proud, ignorant and most of all, possess the "I know it all" syndrome. The natural man is not open to change and learning new things. Even in his misfit, he believes help comes from within.

Anchor Scripture: 1 Corinthians 2:14
"But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."

For the natural man to transcend into the next phase,  his vision must first be corrected. Ever wondered why natural men never win (spiritual) battles?

Interestingly, every "spiritual man" emanated from the "natural man," but the former, took intentional steps to exempt himself from "the natural man" status.

Characteristics of the natural man:
1. He is in the habit of justifying his carnally minded statute and antics. He operates by the prompting of his flesh,
2. He does not understand kingdom investments and strategic alliances.
3. Those who "speak in tongues" are mere noise makers to him.
4. He does not believe in tithing and the need to take care of his pastor.
5. He is stingy with his resources. i.e talents, finance, knowledge, etc.
6. He may be rich, but he will never be able to generate wealth.
7. He knows nothing about the operation of grace, faith and love.
8. He is vulnerable and easily manipulated.
9. He is proud and never humble to welcome the new.
10. Over-confidence in his dealings perpetually weighs him down because he fails to put God first and become equally yoked with Him.
11. He is too concerned about religion and doctrines.
12. His foolishness calls for urgent intervention. Don't bother trading words with him, it's only a waste of time until his vision is corrected.
13. He never positively inspires all who come in contact with him.
14. He only craves worldly satisfaction.
15. He is a church goer but never a Christian.

Never do real stuffs with the natural man, you'll get hurt/burnt in the process because his mentality sucks a great deal and you'll never actualize destiny or God's initial plan for your life.

Isolate yourself from the natural man today and receive immeasurable measures of blessings pressed down, shaken together and running over.

Have a Glam day guys!
