PLEASE


The word "please" is a subtle cry for mercy. It expresses one's vulnerability. The phrase 'please' has reinstated businesses, work, cordial and intimate relationships. In the same vain, it has clouded the thinking abilities of individuals, thus handicapping them. These "handicap" could entail compromising to illegitimate business deal, subscribing to peer pressure, or in serious occasion, giving up one's moral values. Some have contacted venereal diseases because of please.

It is true that vulnerability is a bridge to connection. But never forget that vulnerability is one of the ways. There are others means of attaining it. Connection in this context means legitimate links to self purpose.

Please can be used in harmless or harmful contexts. Stay woke! Ensure you're using the term "please" to achieve a purpose, not to attack a prey. If the eventual result of the use of your "please'' doesn't align with godly results, then you're subscribing to the negative/harmful please.

Let no one take advantage of you. Your vulnerability shouldn't be downplayed to the level of stupidity. Most importantly, accept the harmless please. *winks


Have a PLEASANT day Fam!

You'll Never Walk Alone?


The above epigram/post title "You'll never walk alone'' is familiar among football fans especially Liverpool Football Club fans.

When you walk alone, you go far but when you walk with people you go fast - Joyce Meyer

Anchor Scripture: {Ecclesiastes 3:1}
"To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven.''

There is a time to walk alone and there is also a time to walk with others. If you're still in the "Walking alone phase," nothing will stop you from walking with others at the appointed time.

Ever been in a situation where no one thinks of a certain good, but the moment God blesses you with an idea that'll tend to take you and the organization you probably work in to the next level, almost everybody in the organization begins to resist and antagonize you directly or indirectly?
In such situation, don't feel tempted to bury your ideas in a coffin. *See Ephesians 5:14 (MSG Translation) Never be scared of walking alone. Stop being tormented by everyone else's reaction towards you. Walk it through!

At some point in the lives of Joseph, Stephen, John, Paul, they dared to walk alone and the results they recorded were insurmountable.

Dare the impossible by walking alone, not forgetting that one with God is majority. He gives the ultimate backing and has promised to reward those who diligently seek Him -Hebrews 11:6b

Cos eventually, You'll Never Walk Alone...

Dining With The Devil


You may ask, is it okay to dine with the devil when James 4:7 categorically states, "Submit yourself before God. Resist the devil, and he'll flee?''

In cases where resisting and fleeing from the devil is inevitable, what do you do? Dine with him with a very long spoon! This literally means keeping a distance; subscribing to full consciousness and eliminating every distraction till the said meal has been done with.

Anchor Scripture: {1 Peter 5:8}
"Be alert and sober of mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour."

In as much as dining with the devil to obtain a tangible result may be the only route to obtaining a desired result, know when to stop dining! "There is time for  everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens."- Ecclesiastes 3: 1 Be at alert.

The devil is bad to the bone! He can go the extra mile to pin you down to a spot. Never give in. Never (consciously or unconsciously) create the slightest opening for  him to penetrate. Avoid sin - Gossip, fornication, adultery, malice, theft and every other negative vice. It's the only way to step out of the dining room without a running belle. It's the only way to stay winning.

It's okay to dine with the devil when the need arise, but do that with a very long spoon!

The Infected Cookie


If you could say no over and over to an infected cookie in the past (even when you had to elope because you didn't have the nerve to look it in the face and reject it) then you'll end up with a running belle if you can't look it in the eye today and yell a thunderous no, now that you're well thought, confident and eek of wisdom.

Ever been in a situation where people offered you regular cookies (which were not bad) but it didn't seem to excite you because of the picture of the special cookie that's been registered in your taste bud that needs to be tended to, thus making you salivate on the subconscious until you took a bold step not to salivate anymore but wait gracefully for that specially-made cookie irrespective of the time frame?

Well, one fateful day when you were not looking, a regular cookie tagged along. You didn't notice it because it was not just your type but the cookie was all up in your face consistently, like it was an emissary. You soon oblige on purpose to have a bitty taste of this basic cookie that's refused to just let you be. And alas! it tasted great. The subtle imperfection embedded on the wrapper used for its packaging didn't matter. But as this supposed special cookie digested in your system, it made your belle ache real bad. Only then did you realize that it was infected.

Memory Verses: {Nahum 1:9} NKJV
"What do you conspire against the Lord? He will make an utter end of it. Affliction will not rise up a second time.''

Do not give up on the scout for that special cookie you've envisioned. You deserve the best, not the second best.

Give Up On Your Dreams

But only for a short while though...

Some people put their dreams on hold for many weeks, months or even years in order to serve, acquire knowledge and in turn undergo the training phase. They are on the right path.

I once heard a public speaker say, "In order to make your dream come true, you'll have to give up your dream to make another person's dream come true.''
You make ask, "How feasible is this?'' Well, there is something called calculated risk. Ensure that whoever you'll give up your dreams for is worth it. This can be likened to the case of a nursing mother who takes a while off the work scene to tend to her newborn, but her snap back is divinity, because she returns fiercer than ever. Service and Honour is rewarding.

Anchor Scripture: {Genesis 29:18}
"Now Jacob loved Rachael; so he said, 'I will serve you seven years for Rachael your younger daughter."

Giving up one's dream temporarily comes with a lot of mixed feelings that includes; pain, anguish, happy moments, sleepless nights, discipline, subscribing wholly to the ethics etc.

Jacob was a distinguished Zoologist who put his dream on hold in order to ensure that his heart desire is met. It entailed marrying Rachael.

While putting one's dream on hold, it is deal to apply wisdom, thus analyzing the prospect of your long term goal and ensuring that plan B is nurtured concurrently.
People change for better or for worse, it shouldn't take you by surprise when this happens. Jacob learnt the hard way. *See Genesis Chapters 29- 31 for the full account.

Time investment/service is tantamount to a certified work experience, because overtime, one's skill is sharpened and their horizon, broadened.

Give up on your dream (but only for a short while), bearing in mind that no calculated risk/investment is a waste of time.


Have a Fab day Y'all

The Warning Sign


A warning sign is a signage that awakens the consciousness of a danger. Failure to adhere may result to a weighty sanction or disaster.

Anchor Scripture: {Deuteronomy 4:9}
''Only give heed to yourself and keep your soul diligently, so that you do not forget the things which your eyes have seen and they do not depart from your heart all the days of your life.''

In a car dashboard display which updates or provides the driver with the appropriate information from time to time, ignoring the notification from the icons that represent the fuel gauge, temperature, maintenance, etc can lead to a crash that'll involve a lot of financial commitment to be reinstated or even an irrevocable loss of the vehicle.

The above illustration applies with relationship issues. The warning signs pop up from time to time.

The warning sign is not a disastrous signage but a sign that prevents one from a disaster if duly interrogated. If the warning sign in a relationship is ignored, it becomes monstrous overtime. But if the irreconcilable differences are reconciled in due course, then a healthy union is guaranteed.

The warning signs are ever before us. Pay attention. Act accordingly.

Have a great day Fam!

Just Like That!

Just kidding... lol

Since year 2015 after the demise of my mum, I've been praying to God for "equally yoked'' female friends who will tag along with me to the future. Two years later, Jesus did it!

I can understand if you're giving me a side eye or probably referring to me as dramatic, but in truth, I was wired to function effectively with the right association. Being raised in a "full'' house may have contributed to the factor.

Anchor Scripture: {Proverbs 18:24}
"One who has unreliable friends soon comes to a ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.''

All my life, I've had cool friends in between, but in the case of an equally yoked friend that sticks closer than a brother, it's been mission impossible. You'll never appreciate the presence of abundance until you've experienced perpetual lack. Well, all I can say is Thank You Jesus!

God added an amazing male friend to my life few months ago and topped it up with two female friends that have been all shades of amazing. Waking up to female friends who will join me in my morning devotion (where we'll have to set the agenda for the day) has been my utmost dream. Good news! that is my reality. Still feels unreal. *lool. Chai! Thank You Jesus.

The most interesting part is that these girls are my confidant, they understand. Guys claim to understand girls but it's really not so, unless you're lucky to meet a like minded person or one who has been adequately equipped from years of experience.

In truth, patience is a virtue! And yes, God is still in the business of answering prayers. His ways or pattern may seem slow but He's never a late God.

I still have other heart desires I'm believing God for, but I don't have trust issues when God is involved. Over the years, I've learnt to be patient with Him, and yeah, sometimes I have some questions about certain circumstances. But ultimately, I've realized that His ways are not our ways and He always has the perfect plan.

Just like that... Jesus heard me. He didn't give me double for my trouble, but triple for my tribulation. His praise will forever be on my lips. Amen

What are you believing God for? Wait on Him. He'll answer.

MIRACLE




 A Miracle is a wonderful event occurring in the physical that is attributed to the supernatural. The underlining factor of a miracle is that it must be physical, hence, it'll be recorded as mere hypnosis. Hypnosis is a trans-like state that is artificially induced.

THE BIG QUESTION...

Do you believe in miracles?

Ever wondered why Nigeria is still a third-world country amidst the high-rise "Miraculous'' revivals?

Don't misquote me, miracles are good but it tags along with a process.
So many people don't want to get involved with the process, yet wake up each day anticipating a 'miracle'.

Waking up each day anticipating a miracle is living by faith but it must go hand in gloves with work (especially good works).

Anchor Scripture: {Luke 17:11-14}
"Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.
Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off. And they lifted up their voices and said, 'Jesus, master, have mercy on us!' 
So when He saw them, he said to them, 'Go, show yourselves to the priests.' And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed.''
The above anchor scripture illustrates the process which the Ten Lepers took to obtain their healing. Same applies in the case of Moses who struck the rock with his staff to produce water.

Israel's economic miracle is a story to cling on to. Israel was attacked 7 times in 67 years of existence. More so, they lacked a fertile ground for agriculture and possessed a small landmass.

To reverse the status quo (thus birthing their economic miracle), they subscribed to a rigorous process. Intellectuals, idealists and elites subscribed to tilling the ground and became an agricultural giant, spent sleepless nights, got involved in insatiable questioning of authority, strengthened their military defence, caused talented people to put their creativity to work, took risks and were ambitious. Engineering, Science and entrepreneurship were upheld as well.

We need our eyes of understanding opened, thus enabling us see the clouded (veiled) miracles around us that's needs to be made physical (unveiled) through a process.

Our Miracles are not on the way, they are in the way.

I believe in miracles.


Have a MIRACULOUS Day!

Vessel Of Honour


It is true that an empty vessel makes the loudest unpleasant sound, but it's never be heard of a loaded vessel making a distasteful sound. Loaded vessels are solidified, thus, can't be easily tossed around.

Anchor Scripture: {2 Timothy 2: 20-21}NKJV
"But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honour and some for dishonour.
Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honour, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.

2 Timothy 2:20-21 MSG Translation
"In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets - some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.''

Reflecting on the above anchor scripture, we take to cognizance that all humans are vessels, but not all vessels are vessels of honour. Some are empty, some are used as waste-bins, some are mere serving spoons and some are crystal goblets and silver platters used to serve or appease royalties. The latter type of vessels are referred to as, "Vessels of Honour''.

Are you an empty, substandard or loaded vessel? Critically examine yourself.

Loaded vessels are high capacity containers. Fill your vessel with the right substance and watch God use you to do great and mighty works for humanity which will be ascribed to His Glory.

Never forget: A loaded vessel is a vessel of honour.

INSECURITY


If you see yourself having sleepless night over someone else's fake Ray Ban Glasses and unceasingly striving to obtain it (especially when you have the original version), then there are greater chances that you are dealing with chronic insecurity issues.

If you can't confidently look into the other party's eyes during decision making, then get ready to be taken advantage of because of a low self esteem guise in the robe of insecurity.

More importantly, if you see yourself wanting it all and not being able to say no even when you know you ought to, then there are greater chances that you're sulked up in the claws of overconfidence. There is a thin line between insecurity and overconfidence.

Studies have shown that most overconfident people are "lowkey'' insecure and most insecure people are ''lowkey'' overconfident. One distinct trigger is enough to blow its cover and give way of the innate (not so upright) virtue to dominate and vice versa.

If you're constantly seeking validation from others, even to minute issue of seeking their assistance or acknowledgement to update your status on face book, twitter, instagram or other social media platforms, then your insecurity level is on cloud nine and you need prompt help!

Scripture Reflection: {Romans 9:25}
"I'll call nobodies and make them somebodies. I'll call the unloved and make them loved.'' 

Battling with any insecurity issue which I failed to mention because I was careful not to write an epistle? Take it to God in prayer.
Ensure you surround yourself with positive people who speak to the giant in you, make deliberate moves to work on yourself and above all, yell a reverberating STOP to every demeaning position, situation or decision you've wallowed in for so long.

Insecurity kills all that is beautiful.

Good Content


Lately, I've been involved with a lot of 'bread and butter' talk. And in truth, I've been contemplative about it.

On my 25th birthday, I resolved to be gracious in my speech, but along the way, I drifted. Well, thank God I outlined my resolutions and cautious enough to hold myself accountable whenever I go contrary to the aforementioned.

Anchor Scripture: {Proverbs 10:19}
"When there are many words, transgression is unavoidable but he who restrains his lips is wise.''

Words or speeches with good contents are mind-lifting while bad/shallow/baseless contents are mind-drenching. Nothing good comes out of the latter. More so, loose talkers are never accorded with respect.

Filtering/processing our spoken words helps in the edification of our spiritual, moral, and psychological lives. Good talks creates a healthy atmosphere for exploits in every sphere.

If your flaw(s) includes projecting negativity or engaging in empty talks hence leading to an empty state of mind, it's time to refrain from such demeaning attribute. I indulge us to be deliberate about our every move and measure our progress(es).

Have a great weak guys!

Lead Us Not Into Temptation!


Whether we are the tempter or the temptee, at some point in our lives, we'll fall deeply into temptation.

Anchor Scripture: {Mathew 6:13}
"And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one."

Jesus in His profound wisdom gave us a template for prayer. He incorporated "Temptation" into it. *Kindly peep 1 Corinthians 10:13 to understand why He did so.

Even Jesus in all His glory was tempted. The account of all His temptation escapade on earth were not recorded in the Bible asides the account between Him and the devil at the Mountain of Temptation- Mathew 4:1-11 *I mean, Jesus lived for 33 years and was a good looking man when he took the form of ''natural'' flesh. #Thinking out loud
How do I know He was good looking? The linen cloth which Veronica dabbed his bloody face with was a proof. Subsequently, Jesus' image that appeared on the handkerchief was the model that served artistes who drew Him.

According to Ellahillz, Temptation means falling for what is not good for you even when that thing is a good thing.

As a matter of fact, the more anointed you are, the more tempted you become. Male and female alike.



Sexual related temptations amongst other types of temptation tops the Temptation Chart. Maybe because sex is part of the physiological needs of man. *I may be wrong about my statistics though.

No one escapes temptation even the Religious in all their "HolySpirtness". *Don't ask me how I know this.

At some point, we've either stumbled on porn (visual or print) or masturbated or made out with a partner or had canal knowledge with them or even all of the above. *Yes, don't lie. winks

My prayer goes out to the celibate (especially the religious). It is not an easy journey. How do I know this? Maybe because I'm celibate and can't wait to 'uncelibate' myself. *lol

Well, the celibate life is a rewarding life! Tons of revelation and good works are recorded during its pure phase.

1 Corinthians 10:12- (Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall) puts me on my feet each time. It is a logical scriptural passage with a subtle (yet powerful) admonition.

What should we do in the face of temptation especially when you're gradually obliging but haven't fallen yet? Confront it. Confess it. Speak about it with your tempter or temptee. *It works for me.#covers face

Temptation is that which entices us a great deal even though we know we'll regret it if we fall into it. "Lead us not into temptation Oh Lord!" should be our daily confession and corporate hashtag.

Can we overcome temptation? Yes we can! Because with God nothing is impossible- Luke 1:72 and Yes! We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us- Philippians 4: 13. Committing ourselves to gainful works is a tested escape route too; for an idle mind is the devil's workshop.

Just Because You Can't...


First off, Just because you can't doesn't mean others can't.

Second off, just because you're trash doesn't mean you can't do great things

Third off, Just because you're good doesn't mean everyone will like you.

We live in a world filled with diverse personalities. These set of people are unique in their uniqueness. It is an unruly behaviour to choke people with your ideology/perceptive. In the same vain, it is okay to persuade them into reasoning with your line of thoughts. But if it doesn't work, free it! Just term it "Honest Disagreement''. *I learnt the terminology from the Bible.

Permit me to infuse some natural illustrations...

- Just because you can't abstain from sex and other shades of addiction doesn't mean other can't

- Just because you can't establish a mutual relationship with the opposite sex without "catching feelings'' doesn't mean others can't

- Just because you make perfect sense doesn't mean others will comply

- Just because can't subscribe to "runs'' or "jiggolo" in time of lack doesn't mean others can

- Just because you can't communicate or deliver eloquently or excellently doesn't mean others cannot

- Just because you're lovable doesn't mean others will love you or vice versa

- Just because you're open with people doesn't mean others will

- Just because you can't pray or fast lengthily doesn't mean others can't

- Just because you hate to read doesn't mean others hate to

- Just because you can't stand other doctrines or religious practices doesn't mean others can't

- Just because you're anti-social doesn't mean others will be puppets on your strings


Allow people express their uniqueness without bullying/ridiculing them with the principles that work for you!  *Ever imagined that they can still do otherwise in secret?

Overtime, I've seen people follow different rules and emerge successfully regardless. The idea is to do what works for your mental and overall well-being, because in the end, there is only one Just Judge: Jesus!

He is popularly called 'El Shaddai' (The many breasted one). He attends to us differently because He understands He didn't create us alike, yet we reflect His image.

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control. 2 Tim 1:7 (AMP)

My deduction from the above meditative verse; Love has a Calm disposition, yet Power-ful.

The Burning Bush


Most of us don't notice the presence of God even when it is stuck in our faces.

Anchor Scripture: {Exodus 3:2-4}
''And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. So he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, but the bush was not consumed. Then Moses said, 'I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn.''
So when the Lord saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, 'Moses, Moses!' 
And he said, "Here I am.''

It was only when Moses turned to inquire (about the marvelous sight) that God called him by his name, introduced Himself to him, and dished out further instructions.

God will never force Himself down our throats except in special cases.

Lately, I've not been spending quality time with God as I used to and it's been taking a toll on me. The void has been taunting. And today, as I reached out for a pen and note pad to write about the revelation He deposited in me after going through some scriptures of the Bible, I felt the power of the Holy Spirit reinstated. With no doubt in my heart, I was called to decipher his word (via writing) and to proclaim it to every corner of the earth. I am first a Missionary Blogger, and second, a virtuous woman that prospers in other fields I'm involved in.

Nothing comes before God, everything comes after him.

If you're passionate about something, you''ll create time for it, but if you care less about something, you'll make excuses for it. 

We are never too busy to tend to that which we love and uphold in high esteem.

I don't know about you, but whenever I sideline God (subconsciously), the emptiness I feel is always on 'cloud nine'. From my deduction, putting God at the backseat is sin!

God seeks to introduce Himself to us everyday through creative means, but we are too busy occupying our minds with delusional activities.

Turn around and notice The Burning Bush around you today and watch God work through/with/in you.

WRITING...


The faintest ink is better than human memory - Chinese Proverb 
Human memory may fail, but a written piece would never fail - E.Hillz

A wise man once said, when your vision moves from thoughts to paper, it becomes alive and achievable.

Writing is the oldest form of speech presentation. Ever wondered why God did not resort to giving Moses the Ten Commandments verbally but took out time to inscribe them with his hands on a tablet? This He (God) did a second time after Moses angrily destroyed the first. *This confirms the importance of writing.

Writing on a tablet is a unique skill possessed by craftsmen. This accrues God with the title; "Craftsman of all craftsmen.'' If you're a writer, you're not only made of the image of God, you possess His dominant trait: Craftsmanship.

Anchor Scripture: Habakkuk 2:2
"Then the Lord answered me and said: Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it."
Verbal communication is good. But for posterity sake, written speeches should be subscribed to, because, it can be passed from generation to generation. Now, imagine if the authors of the Bible, philosophical works, encyclopedia, etc. did not commit to writing. It would have been a dead end. Thank God for writers!

There were situations when God subscribed to verbal communication to convey His message, and in His wisdom, He admonished them to write every word in their hearts or in a book, pending on its depth.

In professional organizations, you'll have to pass the written test(s) to qualify you to the oral/verbal interview. This amplifies the ambiguity of writing and written works.

In a society where writing has been downplayed, do not join the bandwagon because eventually, written works would be used as references while gaudy speeches with no documentation would die a natural death.


Subscribe wholly to writing. It is the only means of preserving an idea that will stand the test of time.

AIR

Can you see it? No, you can't... Can you feel it? Yes, you can.

Air is an invisible gaseous substance surrounding the earth, particularly a mixture of oxygen and nitrogen.

Air is synonymous to the word "Breath".

Anchor Scripture: Genesis 2:7
"And the Lord God formed man out of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostril the breath of life (air); and man became a living soul.'

Dating back to the creation story, ever since God breathed ''air'' into Adam and Eve, humans have remained a shareholder.

Air sustains every living creature resident on the surface of the earth. Interestingly, some non-living things (equipment) are benefactors. *Radio/TV transmitters receive signals from air.

Sadly, some pay dearly for air.

If you're able to access air on a platter without any obstruction, then you're more advantaged than you thought you were. Air is life. Air sustains. Air is the premise for a future we hope for.

Thank God for AIR.

Whop! Whop!! Birthday Rants?


I remember crying at the early hours of her birthday. Not because I remembered the pains she bore until her death (that always tears me up) but because I really did miss her.

Swiping back and forth the pictures, paying more attention to the picture of the pink ankara dress she made for me, that I found soothing. We were standing side by side, smiling. Life seemed promising.

I didn't mourn for too long, I channeled the energy to celebrating her life instead. I dodged the bullet.
I was good. I was fine. I was editing a life project, critically analyzing life in between. "Puff of air, puff of air..." The only thought that resonated.

Amidst the hustle and tussle, nobody will get out alive? Mtcheecheeew, I involuntarily made an outstretched hiss.

The next day came, it was a long day. From trying to make a little money earlier in the day, on to attending church proper and then the meeting thereafter. I was fatigued.

I soon returned home, unwinding through social media. I ought to have been sleeping, but sleep wouldn't come. "Let me read a book'', I thought to myself. I couldn't express any emotion. And I didn't like to feel that way. It made me seem inhuman.

I open Toke Makinwa's "On Becoming". I had read it in the past. It seemed like entertainment to me. Maybe because it was trending. But this time was different.

Word for word, line by line, the first four chapters sunk. Alas! I was beginning to stir up an emotion. "This is pain in black and white,'' I pondered. An amplified version of pain.

How could one watch mother and father burn beyond recognition, lose the two house helps, graduate to losing a sister, not to mention the possession that was cremated and still look glam on Instagram? "Nawa o, people dey!'' I soliloquized.

I heaved a deep sigh of relief, thanked God for everything and continued with my book. But this time, another book.

I Am Not Looking At You!

I'll use a public transportation to my destination rather than use a personal ride or request for an Uber whenever I find it cheaper. It'll continue till my finance pops.

I'll give up my seat and stand graciously other than shut my eyes to a stranded elderly person.

I'll get it right during the courting phase before I walk down the aisle other than go about it the wrong way.

I'll thrive legitimately even if it takes a longer time to actualize purpose rather than be a woman of easy virtue living a vain life for social media acknowledgement.

I'll gracefully pass through my process rather than pretend to have it all sorted out

I'll slide into your "DM" if you inspire me with or without your permission rather than live with the memory of not sliding in to express my thoughts.

I'll love my mentors unapologetically without your opinion because we mustn't always have "identical'' mentors.

I'll use an android device I can conveniently maintain rather use an 1phone/pad that'll make my heart skip countless beats when the screen cracks up.

I'll work rigorously hard to ensure I ace examinations and other affairs of life even if i don't win other than lazy around foolishly waiting for supernatural aid.

I'll prefer to be loved but even if I get shoved, it doesn't really matter because you're ugly to me and I ain't seeing you.

I'll (act) vulnerable rather than (play) strong when I need help. I'm either acting or playing. Life is not that serious. *lol... Well, I have my serious moments.

I'll choose creative mediums to enhance the virtue of my character rather than get "bondagefied" in a religious protocol.

I'll love/serve God in spirit and in truth, His praise will forever be on my lips. I'll ''unshamely'' tell the world how beautiful he is through my Blog Posts and other platforms rather than remove God out of the equation because society doesn't project the young lady that takes the "Jesus thing" too serious.

I'll not live my life trying to impress you when I have pressing needs to address because at the end of the day...,

I Am Not Looking At You.

JTB (John The Beloved) was an ambassador, fan and archer of love, and in turn, Love reciprocated.

From my perspective, he was the founding father of PDA (Public Display of Affection). This was evidenced at the last supper when he lay his head on the shoulder of Jesus. He unapologetically "famzed'' Jesus, and it worked in his favour all the time.

During the last supper, we see how Jesus revealed who would betray Him to JTB. (See John 13:23-26)The connection between Jesus and John was another level.

{Anchor Scripture: John 21:20}
"Then Peter, turning around, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who was leaned on His breast at the supper, and said, "Lord, who is the one who betrays You?
Peter, seeing him, said to Jesus, "But Lord, what about this man?''
Jesus said to him, "If I will, he remain till I come, what is that to you? You Follow Me.''

  You Can Spot John With Ease Yea?

Oh well, John didn't live to witness the Second Coming of Jesus, but he was the last out of the Disciples of Jesus to pass on to eternal glory. He died between the ages of 90-100 years old, reason why he was referred to as "Elder" at the latter part of the books of the Holy Bible.
Five books of the Holy scripture were recorded to his credit. They include; The books of John, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John & Revelation.

All his books were born out of in-depth unwavering love for Jesus. They envisage the entirety of what love is encompassed of.
John 3:16John 14:14John 10:10, are popular scriptures that depicts selfless, sacrificial and unconditional love.
John bares it all in the book of revelation which he wrote while on exile at the Island Of Patmos. He painstakingly gives out a fair warning to every Christian, hence, setting perspectives.

Love goes hand in glove with loyalty. If you're not faithful in loving the little things life gets to offer, you will never be faithful in loving the ambiguous things it encompasses.

Love love like John The Beloved and you'll be loved right back by/with love.

Today, make Jesus the ''first love of your life'' and the ''other loves of your life'' will tag along.

Have an Overwhelming day.

Running On Rails...



First you'll have to pass through potholes, on to a smooth road with speed bumps, but eventually, you'll run on rails.

Anchor Scripture: Proverbs 21:21 {NIV}
"Whoever pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honour


Running on rails entails running with ease. It's the proof of a rewarding life that has passed through series of processes and protocols, tests and trials. It is the life of undeniable exploits. It is the life of abundance. It's the good life...

Still in your process and everything seems confusing? Good news! You're right on track. It's a proof that you're living. Keep thriving! Chin up! Eyes on the prize! Eventually, everything will make perfect sense and you'll be intensely joyful from inside out. *Toast to the fairy-tale life. wink

From the above anchor scripture, the law of structure and flow is explicitly spelt out. To obtain life (fullness), prosperity and honour, you'll have to pursue righteousness and love.

Chasing righteousness and love encompasses a moral life graced with hard-work, sacrifice, discipline and strategic alliance. Its principles are result oriented, and they are manifested in the life of its subscribers.

Run after God, it's the only way to Run On Rails.


Have a Graceful day!

The Law Of First Mention



The law of first mention states that God indicates a truth that stands in His mind which will not change later on.

Anchor Scripture: {Mathew 4:18-19}
"And Jesus walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. 
Then He said to them, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.''

Taking a critical look at today's anchor scripture, we notice Simon Peter's name was first to be mentioned on the list of '' The Followers of Jesus'' which in turn earned him (and his brother, Andrew), an immediate change in status.

Ever wondered what attracted Jesus to Peter and his brother?

Well, interestingly, the blessing of the first mention rested on Peter.

I personally do not think it was a mere coincidence that God the father found him worthy to reveal a classified heavenly secret which earned him the mantle of leadership.

Mathew 16: 17-18 "Jesus answered and said to him, Blessed are you Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven, And I say also to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My Church; and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.''

 Are you still malfunctioning in your abilities or responsibilities? Configure your status back to default factory setting by en-routing Genesis Chapter 1:28 to have a grasp of the Law of first Mention to man by God which categorically states, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth."

As we take cognizance of the Law of First Mention and live it out, may its many favour and blessing never elude us, Amen.

Your Opinion Mustn't Count


Nobody is entitled to your own opinion.

It's okay to persuade people into seeing opinions from your perspective, but it is every shade of wrong to lord it over them.

Anchor Scripture: {1 Peter 5:3}NLT
"Don't lord it over the people assigned to your care, but lead them by your own good example."

The above anchor scripture is an admonition from Apostle Peter to the pilgrims of the Dispersion in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia.

Even God in all His glory, majesty and perfection doesn't force humans to serve and do his will on earth. He gave man freedom to choose. (Bearing in mind that our choices make or mar us)

In our present age, many brothers think it's their right to obtain the telephone numbers of the sister they are trying to woe, failure which, they become paranoid.

If you see yourself lording your opinion(s) over people, then it is a sign that you're overly temperamental, and you need to visit a psychologist to get apt help before your case escalates into something grievous.

Live and let live. Listen more than you speak. Be creative in/with your decision making. Learn to see opinions from different perspectives. Respect peoples opinion. Be diligent in your dealings, and watch God perfect every weakness that concerns you.

Your Opinion Mustn't Count.


Have a Fruitful Week ahead Fam. *Kisses

CRY!



I don't know about you, but crying helps me ease off especially when my heart is full.

*Don't worry, I ain't crying, neither did I cry yesterday. Oh! I remember, I cried briefly yesterday over a slight mix up, I'm petty like that. lol
The slight crying didn't inspire me to sculpt today's post, rather a beautiful soothing song was the inspiration behind it.

Anchor Scriptures
 Ecc 3:4:"There is a time to weep and a time to laugh; A time to mourn and a time to dance."

Mathew 5:4: "Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted."


It's okay to mourn, wail, yell... cry.

Let it out! Let it go! And you'll be just fine!

Crying heals (slowly but surely)
Crying strengthens
Crying reassures
Crying rejuvenates
Crying admonishes
More so, it is an act of self examination.

Crying is a proof that you're still breathing. So keep breathing.

It's okay to exercise those tear glands you know. It flushes both the physical and psychological dirt that's been piled up for a while.

Our hearts can be broken but our spirit cannot. The spirit is accrued with the responsibility of tarnishing darkness to unleash light, this way transforming mourning into merry.

Different people cry for different reasons. Whatever your reason(s) is (are), may God the mighty physician heal you of your infirmities.

It's okay to lose who you were to discover who you ought to be, and if you''ll have to cry yourself a river to unveil that innate abilities deposited by God the Father himself (to his dearly beloved children), then cry all you want!

Cry with a purpose and for a purpose.

#No crocodile tears is allowed though

Stay Woke: Similarities Between God And The Devil



- God speaks to us in a familiar voice, so does the devil

- God passes a message through a dream, so does the devil

- God works with our imagination, so does the devil

- God possesses His own with a spirit, so does the devil

- God speaks to us through our inner mind, so does the devil

- God is a huge fan of worship, so is the devil

- God knows our deepest thoughts, so does the devil

- God uses people (humans) to accelerate our mission, so does the devil

- God uses people to bless and align us in the right direction, so does the devil use people to curse and lead us to destruction

- God hears prayer and supplication, so does the devil hear demonic chants and incantations

- God is a huge fan of symbols and numeric significance, so is the devil

- God has His agents positioned at strategic ends of the earth, so does the devil


Dread with caution, Stay woke, Be prepared, Indulge discipline, and Pray for the spirit of discernment which will enable us to distinguish the similarities between God and the devil, for staying on God's side is staying on the winning side.

One Conversation Away...



It's been proven that we are four (4) persons away from whoever we wish to connect with in the world. Most importantly, many of us are one conversation away from our destiny.

Often times, the one ''deal breaking'' conversation begins with a chain of conversation.

Anchor Scripture: {Proverbs 18:20-21}
"From the fruit of their mouth a person's stomach is filled; with the harvest of their lips they are satisfied. The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.''

Why do we get the wrong feedback during a ''supposed fruit-bearing'' conversation? The answer is very simple... We are either communicating with the wrong people, not being able to communicate, or not communicating at all. 
The above listed factors establishes a failed or fulfilled destiny.

It took Mary one conversation with the right person (Angel Gabriel) to become the Mother of the Saviour of The World.(Luke 1:26-38)
It took Hannah one conversation with Prophet Eli to perfect God's plan (by making her fertile) to birth Samuel. (I Samuel 13-18)
It took a chain of conversation for Saul (now Paul) to be won over to God's side. (Acts 9:1-9)

Whether it's a (meaningful) direct conversation or chain of conversation, the end result is always a touche.
  
Disengage meaningless conversations, ask the Holy Spirit to fill our tongues with the right speech and orchestrate a divine avenue where we meet the right people; hence enabling us to have a fulfilled destiny.


Have an Amazing day!

No Wonder She Snitched!



I used to think that Rebekah, mother of Esau and Jacob, was a mother who allowed favouritism take a toll on her. This is displayed by the way she snitched to her favourite son, Jacob, about Isaac (Father of Esau and Jacob) wanting to bless Esau their first born son. (Genesis Chapter 27)

Out of curiosity, I made Rebekah and Jacob my case study. From my mini research, God opened my eyes to realize that in Genesis Chapter 25, Esau sold his birthright to his brother Jacob over a plate of meal; for he was hungry. The event birthed the future brouhaha between Esau and Jacob

*I'm pretty sure, Rebekah was excited about the event, hence, prompting her to monitor the well-being of her favourite son Jacob, to ensure all the blessings accrued to a first born is obtained by him.

It safe to say that Rebekah wasn't entirely dramatic after all. Also, note that Esau was Isaac's favourite son. Both parents were guilty of favouritism, Rebekah was the smarter one. (This post doesn't justify favouritism as a standard for raising children. It has done more harm than good).

My verdict: Never make decisions (especially sensitive ones) when you're hungry, angry or even (artificially) happy, the consequences may be grave.


*Snitching about the "Issac family" was a great idea right? *winks

He Has Given Skills To All Craftsmen


The Big Question: Are You A Craftsman?

Whether you say yes or no, you're right.

Anchor Scripture: {Exodus 31:6}
"And to all who have aptitude for crafts, I've given the skills to make all the things I've commanded you."

The above anchor scripture is not bias intent, neither does it propagate segregation or stereotype. The ''craftsmanship ability'' is entitled to all who have the aptitude to acquire it, so far it's in line with everything God has commanded.

Which inherent craft are you exhibiting? Which extrinsic craft are learning? God has assured us that He has given skills to ALL craftsman.

Still craving to become a skillful craftsman? Here are the virtues to incorporate;

First, you must take to cognizance that the Holy Spirit teaches all things.(Every and Any craft can be learnt)

Second, you must seek to find, and ask to receive every good and perfect gift. (Jeremiah 29;11- I have plans to give you a future you hope for)

Third, You must establish/maintain a personal relationship with God. This way, streams of creative ideas and revelations are deposited into us.

*Being skillful works hands in gloves with creativity. (Galatians 6:1- Live creatively)

The responsibilities of a craftsman does not come rosy and handy, it entails rigorous training and discipline which may drive us crazy, hereby prompting us to give up. But Hebrew 12 :6 admonishes us, saying, "We should not shrug off God's discipline, neither should we be crushed by it because it's the child He (God) loves that He disciplines and corrects.

Ask for anything in God's name and He'll do it (John 14:14), for He Has Given Skills To All Craftsmen!

You're Interested In Religion, He is Interested In People!




Do you know that at the end of the day, where you go to worship wouldn't even matter, only how you lived your life will? (John 4:23)

Anchor Scripture: {Luke 9: 49-50}
"John spoke up, "master, we saw a man using your name to expel demons and we stopped him because he wasn't of our group.''
Jesus said, "Don't stop him. If he's not an enemy, he's an ally.''

It breaks my heart to see Christians war over the superiority or inferiority of other denomination. This has to stop! It's a trap set by the devil to disunite Christians. Many ignorant Christians are falling for the devil's scheme. Note that it is not in the position of humans to judge, only God is permitted to Judge the affairs of man.

From the above anchor scripture, we see how Jesus admonished John by categorically stating to him that the man whom they tried to disregard because he wasn't in their group yet casting demons in Jesus' name is a friend.

Quit the religious segregation instituted by mere men, God is not a fan! he is interested in people, not religion. (Zechariah 7:6)

Below is God's instruction to man; (Zechariah 7:10)

* Treat one another justly

* Love your neighbours justly

* Be compassionate with one another

* Don't take advantage of widows, orphans, visitors or the poor

* Don't plot and scheme against one another - that's evil


In our society today, religious segregation has taken a greater toll, some employers give preference to only candidates that attend their respective churches (whether qualified or not) in the course of choosing an employee. This has to stop!

Be a reflection of God's image, shift the focus off religion, and direct it at people, irrespective of their denomination, for WE ARE ONE.

Monitor Your Progress


It's the only way to accrue record-breaking results.

A wise farmer plants his seed into the ground, waters it on a regular basis, and is vigilant to notice any weed that may surround it; hence uprooting it. It's the only way he can reap a juicy bountiful harvest.

Anchor Scripture: {Exodus 2:4-6a & vs 7}
"The baby's sister found herself a vintage point a little way off and watched to see what would happen to him. Pharaoh's daughter came down to the Nile to bathe; her maidens strolled on the bank. She saw the basket-boat floating in the reeds and sent her maid to get it. She opened it and saw the child - a baby crying!"
vs 7 "Then his (baby Moses') sister was before her: "Do you want me to go and get a nursing mother from the Hebrews so she can nurse the baby for you?'' Pharaoh's daughter said, ''Yes, Go.'' The girl went and called the child's mother.''

From the interesting anchor scripture above, we see how Moses's sister monitored the progress of her infant brother till he reached the bosom of Pharaoh's daughter. She didn't quit monitoring him even after she noticed that the baby was in safe hands, she took the risk of approaching Pharaoh's daughter to proffer a solution on who was to nurse the baby, this way linking Baby-Moses back to his biological mum! How sweet!

Indeed, out of sight is out of mind. Imagine if Moses's sister didn't watch her little brother to ensure he obtained the security he deserved, Pharaoh's daughter may have handed the baby to an inexperienced nurse who wouldn't have given the baby adequate care.

What trade are you involved with? Ensure you monitor your progress  at each phase. This way, it will enable you proffer apt solution, or avert any ill, need there be a case of an emergency.

Know When To Say I'm Sorry


So many people are good in saying 'I'm Sorry', but very unrepentant in saying 'I'm Sorry' at the wrong time.

Anchor Scripture: {1 Samuel 25:8-24}-paraphrased
David sent message to Nabal through his men, saying, vs 8b: "Let my young men find favour in your eyes, for we come on a feast day. Please give whatever comes to your head to your servant and to your son David.''
vs10-11: ''Then Nabal answered David's servants, and said, "Who is David, and who is the son of Jesse? "Shall I then take my bread and my water and my meat that I have killed for my shearers, and give it to men who I do not know where they are from 
Then David said to his men when they returned with Nabal's distasteful news saying, "Every man grid on his sword!''
vs 14: ''Now one of the young men told Abigail, Nabal's wife, saying, "Look, David sent messengers from the wilderness to greet our master but he reviled them.''
vs 18: ''Then Abigail made haste and took two hundred loaves of bread, two skins of wine, five sheep already dressed, five seahs of roasted grains, one hundred clusters of raisins, and two hundred cakes of fig, and loaded them on donkeys.''
vs 24: ''So she fell at his (David's) feet and said: 'On me, my lord, on me let this iniquity be!' And please let your maidservants speak in your ears, and hear the words of your maidservant."
*Kindly read I Samuel Chapter 25 for the full account.

From the above anchor scripture, we glaringly see the wisdom of Abigail come into play. Her apt apology made David retract the vengeance he intended to execute on Nabal and his people. Imagine if she had delayed her apology, reverse would have been the case.

I know of a temperamental man who is always in the habit of going ballistic at his wife in public, but never fails to apologize to her in private. Each time he apologized to his wife thereafter, she nonchalantly accepted his plea for peace sake. Even after she had accepted the apology, she remained hurt and bitter within, wishing her husband was mature enough to apologize to her in public instead of saving it to when they go private.

A great number of people have terminated a once blossoming relationship because of their inability to say 'I'm Sorry' when it is dearly needed, hence, it becomes too late to make amends when they soon realize that the supposed drift was initiated by them.

Saying sorry at the wrong time will cost you a fortune, but saying sorry at the right time will reinstate your peace, solidify your relationship (with God and with man), escalate your joy, and in turn yield graceful shared moments.

Know when to say I'm Sorry...


Have a Great day!

CONTRACEPTIVES


Newsflash: You'll never conceive if you keep taking contraceptives.

Contraceptives are anything contrary to Conception. Contraceptives are hinderers; they obstruct the conception process, hence yielding nothing.
Birthing the iconic will never be possible if the intake of contraceptives continually gets in the way.

Anchor Scripture: Luke 1:31&38
"And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call him Jesus."
"Then Mary said, "behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be done according to your will."


From the above anchor scripture, it is relatable that Mary didn't subscribe to contraceptives to obstruct the growing fetus in her womb. Her response to Angel Gabriel was, "Let it be done according to your will." A "No" from Mary would have altered the conception phase.

Contraceptives are abortion pills.

So many people in the world consciously or unconsciously abort their fetus because they don't want to go through the inconveniences that comes with pregnancy. Rather, they are looking for a surrogate mother who will help them bear and birth their pregnancy. And in a situation where no surrogate mother shows up, they remain sterile.

Are you pregnant with ideas, good counsel, and innovations that could cause a dimensional shift in the world we live in? Discard those contraceptives, permit conception, embrace your pregnancy phase, and be assured to birth your bundle of joy like the analysis of a Hebrew woman in Exodus 16:19

Have a Contraceptive-Free day!

A Mess Or A Message?


How do you see the not so little water in that glass? As half full or half empty? Perception is everything.
Negative perception yields negative conclusion, while Positive perception yields positive actualization.

In the case of a troubled circumstance, have you ignored the mess(es) that's glaringly scornful and subscribed  to the message, hence learning from its lessons? Until we begin to take cognizance of the message communicated to us in every situation (either positive or negative), we'll never have dominion over the circumstance even though we emerge winners.

Anchor Scripture: {Deuteronomy 1:34-35
"When God heard what you said, He exploded in anger. He swore, 'Not a single person of this evil generation is going to get so much as a look at the good land that I promised to give your parents. Not one - except for Caleb son of Jephunneh. He'll see it. i'll give him and his descendants the land he walked on because he was all for following God, heart and soul."
Vs 37b: "Your assistant Joshua son of Nun, will go in."


As long as the Israelites identified with the mess instead of the message during their walk to the Promise Land, it multiplied the years of their sufferings. Their continual anger, disobedience, murmur and complaints deprived them of reaching the promise land.  And because God perceives negative mindedness as sin (Galatians 5:19-21), He wiped the negative minded generation, retaining the promising/ positive minded clans (aged 20 years and below) who understood His mind and trusted His lead.

Cry, Wail, and Lament all you want in the face of adversity, but never forget to uplift the message from the mess and run with it. It's the only way to obtain merited victories.

Have a Message-Filled day!

The Walls Without Foundation


Torments, Trials, and Tribulations are walls without foundation. With unceasing worship, strategic actions and effective prayers, the walls will fall flat.

Anchor Scripture: {Joshua 6:20}
"So the people shouted when the priests blew the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city."

From the above anchor scripture, we take to cognizance that walls (hindrances) can be subdued or eliminated by obeying God's instruction no matter how "ridiculous" it may seem to be. Imagine if the Israelites didn't adhere to God's instruction by shouting in worship and matching round the wall, the foundation-less wall wouldn't have fallen flat.

Inquire what God wants you to do and not what man wants you to do. It is the only means of arriving at the landing spot God has secured for you.

Subscribe to unwavering faith, rather than impaling fear. Abide in love not hate. Choose discipline over indiscipline. Live in obedience and never in disobedience. Only then will it become eminent that the walls of stagnation, financial disruption, career dwindling, family uproar, unhealthy relationship, academic failures, and other malevolent walls in your life do not have foundation.

Have a Great day and a Swell weekend ahead!

The Month Of March : Its Numerical Significance

*I used to be a slayer. Lowkey, I still am tho..lol *It's an archive selfie of me taken in year 2014


I am a huge fan of numbers and numerical significance. I have special numbers that govern my life. Even God is 'crazy' about numbers. His creation story were tied to numbers.

I'll write about Numerical Significance in the nearest future. It's an in-depth topic because of it's revelational and mind blowing composition.

Well, today I'm going to deliberate solely on the number ''3'' using myself as a case study. Yes, me.*side eyes. lol
The number ''3'' signifies The Signature of God. And interestingly, we are about ending the third month of the year graciously.

Errm... In truth, my many plans for the month didn't come out as intended. Man proposes, God disposes to expose...*I added the "To expose''.

In this third month of the year, I've seen the signature of God (stamped and sealed) in my life. God divinely orchestrated one of my heart desires to come to light. Overtime, I've realized that to emerge successful and victorious, you must use the stairs! You must go through the process, especially at the beginner phase. Shortcut, kills.
My mum used to term foundation-less successes as ''copy and paste''. She unceasingly emphasized on the dangers it accrued. I grew up with the consciousness of deliberately getting the right thing done using the right medium.

Seeds grow into plants before they become fruit bearing. They pass through their process. Anything that is healthy grows! The kind of seed you sow into the ground (foundation) matters. Good seeds produce healthy and wealthy harvest, Bad seeds produce decay and poor harvest. Don't be desperate to plant just any type of seed. The story of Cain and Abel is an eye opener.

Note that all activities revolves around numbers and the system of the world operates by numbers. e.g; Calendar, Weather Forecast, e.t.c

Here are some examples of the significance of the number ''3'';

- The Trinity: Father, Son and Spirit

- The Resurrection: Jesus arose on the third day

- The Holy Family: Jesus, Mary and Joseph

- The Human Composition: Body, Soul and Spirit

When we have the signature of God crested on us, we begin to manifest His purpose for our lives. It's not too late to legitimately obtain the signature of God and watch God in action perfect all that concerns us.

#It's safe to say that I'm gradually piling my "Tell It All Thanksgiving List" while I'm faithfully rooting for the right buttons to click just like my greatest grandpa, Abraham. *smiles

Happy Month End in advance! Make the best out of today and tomorrow! *Note to self as well

The Word Or The Food?


Your remember the face-off between Jesus and the devil (in Mathew 4:1-3) where the devil tried to tempt Jesus by telling Him to turn stone into bread? Well, continue reading to glimpse a natural account that appropriates The word and The Food accordingly.

Anchor Scripture: Luke 10:38-42
"As they continued their travel, Jesus entered a village. A woman by the name of Martha welcomed him and made him feel quite at home. She had a sister, Mary, who sat before the Master, hanging on every word he said. But Martha was pulled away by all she had to do in the kitchen. Later, she stepped in, interrupting them. "Master, don't you care that my sister has abandoned the kitchen to me? Tell her to lend me a hand."
"The master said, "Martha, dear Martha, you're fussing far too much and getting yourself worked up for nothing. One thing only is essential and Mary has chosen it - it's the main course, and won't be taken from her."

Note that Jesus didn't rebuke food, He only emphasized that the word should be served first before the food. No wonder He gave Peter a three-fold command to 'Feed His Sheep' - John 21:15-17

Good food is serious temptation, especially when one decides to tread the line of fasting just like Jesus. Ever wondered why people (including children) steal a piece of meat from the cooking pot? *lol

If we reflect on the life of Jesus, we'll realize He was a food lover.

- It was at a banquet He attended that prompted Him to perform his first miracle by turning water into wine. -John 2:1-12

- He multiplied the 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish to feed the multitude. -Mathew 14:13-21

- At the last supper, He gave bread and wine to his disciples to eat and drink, in turn representing His flesh and blood. -Luke 22:17-19

Jesus' love for food didn't deter him from prioritizing the better part; The Word

Was Martha wrong for trying to prepare a meal for their special guest (Jesus) who was obviously famished after a long trip? No! As a matter of fact, it was in the tradition of the Jews to treat guests (especially travelers) to good meal and a comfortable place to rest their head.  Note that Jesus didn't stop her from entering the kitchen to fix things up until she (Martha) went ballistic on Mary.

Don't be so engrossed in food that you forget to give preference to The Word.

Remember that food can go soar and be taken away from you, but the word cannot be taken from you, neither does it have an expiry date.

Have a Fab day Fam!

He Caught Nothing



It'll interest you to know that God is in the habit of trading nothingness to realize bountifulness. The creation story of Genesis Chapter 1 is one to meditate upon.

In the case of Peter who was a fisherman (Luke Chapter 5), he toiled from morning to night and caught nothing until Jesus stepped in with a divine instruction that entailed that Peter cast his hook one last time into the river. Only then did Peter encounter Jesus' extravagant blessing which prompted him to become one of the followers of Jesus.

Also, in the case of Daniel who prayed and fasted for three months because of the berating state of Jerusalem, God stepped into his situation by sending an angel his way to give him a confirmatory report that his prayers has been answered. Shockingly, the angel told Daniel in confidence that the angel of Persia (devil) delayed (obstructed) him for three weeks until his arrival, crediting (Warrior) Angel Micheal for intervening *See Daniel Chapter 10 for the full account.

Nothingness/Emptiness, Delay, and Stagnation is the handwork of the devil. Do not be discouraged by his antics, rather be persistent in prayer like Daniel, Obey God's instruction like Peter and work strategically hard like Paul while trusting God to visit you and crown your many toils with extravagant returns.

Have a Productive day guys!

No One Serves God At A Loss?



I've heard Spiritual Directors reiterate the above epigram..."No one serves God at a loss." From all I've deduced, it should be rephrased as, "Overall! No one serves God at a loss."

Anchor Scripture: {2Timothy 3:12}
"Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted." 

Serving God is not for the feeble minded. This is why a consistent renewal of the mind is required for the grandiose race ahead.

While thriving to thread in the path of Christ Jesus, there'll be serial rejections, blasphemy, hate, segregation, and all shades of negativity. And just like Apostle Paul, you'll work your fingers to the bone, up half the night moonlighting so that you don't become a burden to others. But after the storm, a pricey reward invigorating God's glory will be accrued.

Uninterestingly, no one explicitly detail the gravity of ''losses'' that tags along with working with/for Christ.  No wonder Jesus wept for the cross to pass over Him, no wonder Elijah was suicidal, no wonder Moses broke the tablet containing the Ten Commandments and struck the rock twice out of frustration, no wonder Jonah fled until he was apprehended, no wonder Saul hid in garbage until he was made king of Israel.

Also note that the journey is not for the swift, nor the battle for the strong, nor by natural abilities, because whatever is strengthened can be weakened.

Have you resolved to working for/with god? Painstakingly ignore the distracting messes in between as you fix your tender eyes on the trophy, violently reaching out to grasp it.

Remain consistent, Work strategically, Pray to God to connect you with the right association. Only then will working for God be richly rewarded, hence making you forget all the temporal losses.


Have a Great day Fam!

A Builder Is More Valuable Than The Building



As little as a builder seems to appear while standing next to a high rise building, he still remains the most important personality.

In a situation where a building collapses, only the builder has the ability to reconstruct it. The sole responsibilities of rehabilitating a dilapidated building rests on the builder as well. With a designated architectural plan, identical buildings can be recreated.

Anchor Scripture: {Hebrew 3:3}
"A builder is more valuable than the building."

Are you loaded with iconic potentials but yet to be identified by your destiny helper? Don't give up! You're a builder. You're not just a number in the census, You're an important personality.

Ever wandered how a diligent hard-worker who once lost everything he laboured for bounces back to his feet and does greater exploits?

Accrue yourself with the position of a builder and erect empires that'll work in your favour.


Have a Productive day Fam!

Are You Investing In The Devil?


God says, I've created man in my image and likeness, but the devil manipulatively interjects, saying, If you eat this fruit, you'll be like God.

God says, I'll send down rain to water your seed, but the devil aggressively counters, saying, Not before my eyes! I'll send plagues to your seed.

God says, I'll give you double for your trouble, but the devil rebukes it, saying, Never! I'll devour you like a roaring lion.

Anchor Scripture: {1Peter 5:8-10}
"Be sober, be vigilant; because the devil your adversary walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. But may God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered for a while, perfect establish, and settle you. 

Mitchelle was an industrious young lady who quit her paid job to pursue the vision God placed in her heart. As she worked tirelessly to kick-start her divine mission, she deemed it wise investing in a side business that'll yield her some returns to sustain her through the period of  her ''gainful toils''.
She made an apt decision of investing in Uber (a popular 21st century transportation company). unknown to her, instead of partnering with Uber, she invested in the devil.
An elderly friend of hers helped her sort for a Nigerian used vehicle because of limited funds to purchase a Belgium car which was the intended plan (she wished to start from her level). The Nigeria used car being purchased was quite pricey. Having done some spray jobs to cover the minor dents, the Vehicle inspection and Uber registration commenced in earnest.
From the moment the car was put into use, it gave trouble upon troubles; pilling up losses but never yielding tangible profits. Mitchelle changed three Uber drivers within the space of three months (including the messy dramas in between) and invested so much money trying to fix the supposed car because she eventually discovered that it was once an accidented car.
Each week came with new repairs, wiping away Mitchelle's savings. This young lady soon realized she had been investing in the devil! She soon made up her mind to sell off the vehicle. It hurt her greatly, but the assurance that all things will work together for her good eventually through Christ Jesus, kept her going.  She's aware that her many investments may not be realized after the sale of the vehicle, but she's confident she'll do exploits in her divine mission, and in the business idea God placed in her heart.

Over the years, I deduced that God patiently waits for us to quit investing in the devil so that He can step in and heal our troubled hearts, hence giving us course to laugh heartily once more.

Know when to yell a big NO to the devil and his antics.

It is  never going to be easy letting go of a pricey possession/investment in anticipation that things may get better eventually. Be sensitive enough to obey the inner spirit!

At the inception, Mitchell had a persistent nudge to discontinue with the purchase of the vehicle, but the agent (whom the devil manipulated) kept persuading her to oblige; insisting it was a great deal. If only she stood her ground, reverse would have been the case.

The devil comes to steal, kill and to destroy. It is true that in every new level, there's a new level. But in all, learn from the lessons taught by devil which was permitted by God.

More so, wave every sentiment and pray fervently over any business deal or trade you hope to invest in, because some deals may be demonic investments. Be vigilant! Be strategic! Watch! and Pray!

#Work diligently, trust God to replace whatever the canker worm has eaten from you, and watch Him multiply your gainful investments.

Have a Rewarding week Fam!
