THE PREGNANT DEER – such a beautiful story and a story difficult to come by!!

In a forest, a pregnant deer is about to give birth. She finds a remote grass field near a strong-flowing river.
This seems a safe place.
Suddenly labour pains begin.

At the same moment, dark clouds gather around above and lightning starts a forest fire.

She looks to her left and sees a hunter with his bow extended pointing at her. To her right, she spots a hungry lion approaching her.

What can the pregnant deer do? Remember she is in labour!!

What will happen?
Will the deer survive?
Will she give birth to a fawn?
Will the fawn survive?
Or will everything be burnt by the forest fire?
Will she perish to the hunters’ arrow?
Will she die a horrible death at the hands of the hungry lion approaching her?

She is constrained by the fire on the one side and the flowing river on the other and boxed in by her natural predators.

What does she do?
She focuses on giving birth to a new life.

The sequence of events that follows are:

– lightning strikes and blinds the hunter.
– he (the hunter) releases the arrow which zips past the deer and strikes the hungry lion.
– it starts to rain heavily and the forest fire is slowly doused by the rain.
– the deer gives birth to a healthy fawn.

Check the circumstances that took place above and ask yourself whether the deer has any influence in the chain of reactions that took place to her enemies right in front of her very eyes.

In our life too, there are moments of choice when we are confronted on αll sides with negative thoughts and possibilities. What we must not do is take our eyes off the ball. We must remain focused on the issue at hand.

Some thoughts are so powerful that they overcome us and overwhelm us.

Maybe we can learn something from the deer.
The priority of the deer, in that given moment was simply to give birth to a baby.The rest was not in her hands and any action or reaction that changed her focus would have likely resulted in death or disaster.

Ask yourself:
Where is my focus?
Where is my faith and hope?

In the midst of any storm, do keep faith in the Creator always. He will never ever dissapoint you. NEVER.

Remember, He neither slumbers nor sleeps!! The strong person knows how to keep their life in order. Even with tears in their eyes, they still manage to say “I’m ok” with a smile.

I send this to you because you are a strong person. That was why God heard your prayers and said hard times are over. If you believe in Him share this to all the people that matter in your life.

Be honest and send this to anyone who makes you smile. I like you and I’m sending this to you because you make me smile!!

Have a blessed day.

What Do Women Really Want?


Google image

This is a very interesting story and a lesson for men.

(To men) Please take time to ponder. 😕

(To women) Just enjoy the story. 😋

Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a neighbouring kingdom.

The monarch could have killed him but was moved by Arthur’s youth and ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom, as long as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a year to figure out the answer and, if after a year, he still had no answer, he would be put to death.

The question was:
*What do women really want?*

Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man. And to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since it was better than death, he accepted the monarch’s proposition to have an answer by year’s end.

He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everyone: the princess, the priests, the wise men, and even the court jester. He spoke with everyone, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer.

Many people advised him to consult the old witch, for only she would have the answer. But the price would be high as the witch was famous throughout the kingdom for the exorbitant prices she charged.

The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk to the witch. She agreed to answer the question, but first he would have to agree to her price.

The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, the most noble of the Knights of the Round Table, and Arthur’s closest friend. Young Arthur was horrified.

She was hunch-backed and hideous, had only one tooth, smelled like sewage, made obscene noises, etc.

He had never encountered such a repugnant creature in all his life. He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such a terrible burden.

But Lancelot, having learnt of the proposal, spoke with Arthur. He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur’s life. And the reservation of the Round Table. Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered.

Arthur’s question thus:
“What a woman really wants?”

She said, “A woman wants to be in charge of her own life.”

Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the witch had uttered a great truth, and that Arthur’s life would be spared. And so it was. The neighbouring monarch granted Arthur his freedom. And Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful wedding.

The honeymoon hour approached and, Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom. But, what a sight awaited him.

The most beautiful woman he had ever seen was sitting by the bed.

The astounded Lancelot asked what had happened. The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she appeared as a witch, she would henceforth become her horrible and deformed self only half the time, and be the beautiful maiden the other half.

“Which would you prefer?” She asked him. “BEAUTIFUL during the DAY… OR at NIGHT?”

Lancelot pondered the predicament.

During the day, he could have a beautiful woman to show off to his friends, but at night, in the privacy of his castle, an old witch!

OR,

would he prefer having a hideous witch during the day? But by night a beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous moments with?

(If you are a man reading this) What would YOUR choice be?

(If you are a woman reading this) What would YOUR MAN’S choice be?

And Lancelot’s choice is given below…

BUT, please make YOUR choice first before you scroll down below!

OKAY?

Knowing the answer the witch gave to Arthur for his question, Sir Lancelot said that he would allow HER to make the choice herself.

Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the time, because he had respected her enough to let her be in charge of her own life.

Now, what is the moral to this

The moral is…

1. There is a ‘witch’ in every woman, no matter how beautiful she is. It’s how a man manages it

2. If you let a woman decide on her own she gives u d best. but if u force her with ur decisions she becomes a witch.

Hmmmm
What do you think ?

So, be careful how you treat a woman.

Happy Sunday

OPEN LETTER TO YOUNG LADIES

Dear young lady,

Why do you think your calling is to be a model just because you are slim and some randy brothers in your neighborhood told you how ‘pretty’ you are? And you aunty, why do you think you must be a makeup artist and tie gele? Are you sure it’s not because of your laziness?
Please why do these girls scatter their legs while taking pictures? And your mouth, why is it twisted to one side?
Sincerely, if you can’t answer any of these, you are part of the problem.
Some of you even put ears of rabbit and mouth of dogs and carry some funny thing on your head while on snapchat. What’s that? That is the most insanely stupid thing I have ever seen.
Sorry I came in harsh. How else do I get your attention if I don’t finger your brain?

The female gender is smarter than the male counterpart but they don’t realise. A lady can handle a surgery, change diapers and at the same time be on the phone teaching somebody how to deactivate a C4 bomb. They are made to handle pressure, multi task and effectively manage people and resources.
Sadly you have turned yourself to an object of sex and a victim of trend.

Dear lady, Why do you watch telemundo everyday, but you can’t read a book in two years?

Dear lady, why do u spend a fortune on bleaching cream?

Why is indomie the only food you can cook?

Dear young lady, your only work experience is the different sex positions you had with bro Femi, Kunle, Anthony, Moses, Ayo, kasali and others. Why now?

Dear lady, who told you being sexy makes you a wife material? Who also told you that all your life’s problem are over once you get married to a rich guy?

Most annoyingly, why do you leave an amazing guy for a fine and rich guy? The former has a future the latter has a car.
Anyways I don’t like dancing around the problem. Here are few lessons.

1. Your body is your temple. Don’t open it for any dogs to feed on.

2. You can do anything a man can do.

3. You can be pretty, but being intelligent makes you prettier.

4. Bad boys are fun, but you can’t change them.

5. When someone shows you who they are, believe them the very first time.

6. Love yourself even more than a man can.

7. Watch how a man treats his mother, most likely he’ll treat you the same.

8. The internet can harm you just as much as it can help you.

9. You need God as much you think your man should fear God

10. Share this post to other ladies you like.

From Strength Not From Strain


Google Image

When people are getting on your nerves then I suggest you take a time out and be in the presence of God.
You need to get your priorities right, you need to get you thinking cleared, you need to get your focus straight.
When you feel people are on your nerves is a sign that you need to change and not them.
When you take the time out you come out with strength.
You will be able to associate and deal with people from a position of strength and not strain. You will not have to force yourself to accept and accommodate people b ut it flows easily because you have strength.

THERE IS A LIMIT TO WHAT SOMEONE CAN TAKE….

I saw this Story this morning and I love the morals in it and I will love to share with you.

THERE IS A LIMIT TO WHAT SOMEONE CAN TAKE..
A man and his wife never fought for 25 years of their marriage.👫👫 A friend asked him how he had managed to make it possible.
He narrated:
“We went for our Honeymoon in Australia 25 years ago
and while riding on a horse,🏇🏼🏇🏼. My wife’s horse jumped and my wife fell down. She got up,patted the horse’s back and said. “This is your first time”.👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻 After a while it happened again. She patted the horse again and said: “This is your second time”.👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻
The horse did it again the 3rd time and She brought out a gun🔫🔫 and shot the horse🐎🐎dead.
I Was so shocked 😳😳😳and I shouted at her. . . . . . . .”Are you crazy! What’s wrong with you? Why did you kill the horse?
She smiled at me and said “This is your first time”
Since then. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . My Mouth Pim.

MORAL LESSONS
Be careful when you offend people and they pardon you. Don’t take them for granted. They feel hurt and take it over and over again. You did it the first time, second time and so on and they pardon you. Don’t be surprised when they suddenly change their actions towards you. That is the human nature. When you offend God, he tells you, this is your first time and he gives you another chance. Don’t abuse it. As it been said, everyone deserves a second chance, but a 3rd chance is unpredictable. So make use of that second chance that God has given you to strengthen your relationship with him because you can’t tell if you will have a second chance.
Have a wonderful weekend….✍🏾✍🏾

Blessed is He Whom God Helps

IMG_20161118_081318.jpg

It’s about God not humans …..Long time ago there lived a great king and two beggars who always stood at the gate of his palace everyday.

As the king rode by everyday, the 1st beggar would say ‘blessed is he whom the king helps’ while the 2nd beggar would say ‘blessed is he whom God helps’.

The king always felt pleased to hear the praise of the 1st beggar.

One evening the king decided to reward the 1st beggar for all the praise; he ordered his baker to bake a cake and wrap precious stones inside the cake.

The next day as he rode by, he gave the cake to the 1st beggar as he hailed him as usual.

The 1st beggar who was in dire need of cash sold the cake to the 2nd beggar at next to nothing.

When the 2nd beggar cut open the cake he saw the precious stones, sold them and became a wealthy man.

He did not return back to the kings gate the next day.

As the king rode out of his palace the next day, he saw the 1st beggar still asking for alms and stopped to ask him if he ate the cake he gave him.

The 1st beggar replied and said no sir, I sold it to my friend who was here with me yesterday; I have not seen him today.

The king continued his journey, telling everybody he met saying it is true that blessed is he that God helps.

Our God is the all knowing God, HE has not forgotten you. HE is always just in time.

Have a blessed and creative day ahead!

Faith

me

When you meditate on God’s Word (to mutter to yourself, to think deeply into, to ponder), it puts you in that verse and it puts that verse in you. The Word becomes real to you; it becomes alive. Meditating on God’s Word helps you to “own” it, and you know that you can’t spend something you don’t own. Many people have learned to confess God’s Word, but sometimes with little results, because they haven’t taken the time to meditate on it first and to make it real to their own hearts.

Perspective

In Life conflict arises from looking at the same thing (with pride) from different perspective.
If only we can humble ourselves and try to see things from another view, from another person point of view, must of the conflict on life can be avoided.
Learn not to argue with anyone who can see things the ways you see it. It is Wisdom if you can bring the person to you point of view and also try to go to their own point of view.
If only did Donald Trump view his candidature from the view of the media and people he won’t have continued the presidential campaign race.
Learn to stand on another new view point.

US Election #Lessons

What I learn from the just concluded US presidential election.

1. The fact that there is too much Hate for you does not mean you should change your mind.

2. If you have a goal don’t lose focus.

3. When people are saying it’s not possible
Ask your self are they those that matter.
Everything is possible to them that believe and remain true to their believe.

Don’t Give Up Because Someone Else Has

This is a story about never giving up, I’ve read and share it years ago, but it holds so much insight that I will love you to see.

Never Give Up

One day a young lady was driving along with her father. They came upon a storm, and the young lady asked her father, What should I do?”He said
“keep driving”. Cars began to pull over to the side, the storm was getting worse.
“What should I do.” The young lady asked?
“Keep driving,” her father replied.
On up a few feet, she noticed that eighteen wheelers were also pulling over. She told her dad, “I must pull over, I can barely see ahead. It is terrible, and everyone is pulling over!”
Her father told her, “Don’t give up, just keep driving!”
Now the storm was terrible, but she never stopped driving, and soon she could see a little more clearly. After a couple of miles she was again on dry land, and the sun came out.
Her father said, “Now you can pull over and get out.”
She said “But why now?” He said “When you get out,look back at all the people that gave up and are still in the storm, because you never gave up your storm is now over.
This is a testimony for anyone who is going through “hard times”. Just because everyone else,even the strongest, gives up. You Don’t have to…if you keep going, soon your storm will be over and the sun will shine upon your face again, know that God is always by your side.

Trust

People change so that you may have to let go
Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they are right
You believe those who lied to you, so that you can eventually learn to trust no one except yourself and God

Sometimes good things fall apart so that the better things fall together `

Aside

change

Change is the only constant factor in life, I want to share with you what I have read over the years and has transformed me.

Looking back, I can see how much I’ve changed. I almost haven’t noticed the change, because it sneaks up on you, until it’s impossible to ignore.
It’s like when you were a kid. You got taller, but you didn’t notice until you stood up against the wall with the marks.
The same holds true for life changes.
You are constantly changing, but it’s hard to notice until it pokes you in the ribs.
It’s not even a question of if you’re changing; it’s a question of in which direction are you changing.
Most people want change because they want to escape. But it doesn’t work.
It is by facing your inner demons that you heal yourself, and change your life for the better.
Below are the 21 things you can do to change your life. It’s a hefty and spicy read, so grab your beverage of choice and enjoy.

  1. Take Tiny Steps
    A baby learns to crawl before it can walk, and it learns to walk before it can run.
    Most people expect rapid life changes. If they’re wasting their time at a soul-sucking job, they expect success and fame within six months.
    I’m not saying it isn’t possible, because it is, but in most cases it’s not going to happen.
    People who need life changes right away don’t realize that it’s not going to make them happy anyway.
    All they want is their dream of a problem-free future. When they get there, reality sets in, and another goal is set.
    And the wheel keeps turning.
    So realize that there will always be problems in life. It’s not our job to eliminate them, but to do our best, take tiny steps, and see where life takes us.
  2. Take Quantum Leaps
    Something I’ve learned in working with people is that changes can happen in an instant. Old pains, fears, and negative emotions can vanish and be replaced by something more useful.
    This may seem contradictory to what I said above, but it isn’t. It’s not either/or, it’s both/and.
    We don’t live in a black and white world.
    Quantum leaps are tipping points (as Malcolm Gladwell, the author likes to call them).
    As you keep taking one step at a time, you will eventually reach a tipping point where your thinking shifts.
    The problem is that most people never get to those shifts. They stop drilling when they are about to hit gold.
  3. Accept Where You Are
    I learn a lesson playing freecell and solitaire, that each game can be won knowing the right moves to make. By accepting who you are you can make a lot of difference in the world.
    Things come and go. People live and die. Your life feels good, and it feels bad. The more you accept this, the easier it is to change your life.
    In fact, it seems as if life changes itself when I stop pushing so hard.
    Here’s a video I recorded on being in the present moment:
  4. Be Patient
    I learn this while learning how to play the guitar, that no knowledge is a waste, invest you time into learning something new and don’t try to rush and don’t try to skip a lesson.
    I stumbled a lot in the beginning. I made mistakes, I failed, and I gave up in frustration more times than I’d care to admit.
    I began seeing results when I became absolutely determined to succeed.
    It was a big lesson in patience. It doesn’t matter what’s going on. There will always be problems. But they don’t have to clutter up your whole life.
    Be patient with your progress. Stay true to your heart.
    You can change your life. Sometimes it just happens in its own time.
  5. Forgive
    We all have memories—painful memories.
    What you may not realize is that the person hurting you with those memories is you.
    You are the director of your mind. While the event may have happened in the past, it’s you who keeps playing them over and over again.
    Reliving the past will get you nowhere. That’s why it’s essential to forgive and forget all those people in your memories.
    You don’t even have to forgive. All you have to do is pay less attention to those thoughts and memories.
    Once you see that the only one suffering is you, the grip tends to loosen.
  6. Heal
    Healing yourself goes hand in hand with point #5. When you know that you can let go of past memories, fears, and obstacles, your self-confidence grows.
    Most people aren’t ready for life changes. They avoid any and all solutions, because they are comfortable where they are.
    And that’s fine with me, but if you make that choice, you have no right to complain or make excuses.
    You either choose to be where you are, or you choose to change your life. The choice is yours.
    Healing starts with seeing that you are not your thoughts; you are the awareness behind them. Thoughts come and go, but your true nature never changes.
  7. Face Your Fears
    When you face your fears, possibilities open up. Even now, there are time when I’m scared.
    Fears don’t disappear, they simply become less important. Fear is the opposite of faith.
    And remember, this is not about comparing yourself to someone else. This is about following your inner GPS, and living the life you were meant to live.
  8. Kill Your Excuses
    Your excuses are mere illusions.
    You may have excuses about why you can’t follow your passion and build do what you have always dream of, but are they really true?
    If you really wanted to, you could take one tiny step forward.
    That’s all it takes.
    One tiny step.
    Then see what happens, re-assess, and take another step.
  9. Take Responsibility
    Since talking with more and more readers, clients, and people in general, I’ve started to notice a scary pattern.
    That pattern is the lack of responsibility. I see people wanting to change their life, but they aren’t willing to take responsibility.
    They wait for a white knight (or black, depending on your preference) to sweep in to save the day and make change effortless and comfortable.
    I hate to burst your bubble, but it’s not going to happen. When you take responsibility for the life you’ve created, you can begin to move forward.
    If you’re blaming someone else for your situation, you’re stuck.
    Learn to make decisions from your inner authority. Here’s a video where I share how I do this:
  10. Follow Your Heart
    And what would an article of mine be without me telling you to follow your heart?
    If you’ve been reading my articles, you know that I keep writing about following your heart, and there’s a reason for it.
    As I’ve been living my life, I’ve started listening to my heart more and more.
    And when I say following and listening to your heart, I mean it in the broadest sense of the word. It can mean anything, such as following your gut, intuition, feelings, or going with the flow of life.
    When you begin putting the pieces together, and taking responsibility, and healing yourself, you naturally begin to follow your heart, your inner GPS.
  11. Follow Your Passion
    If you drive to a gas station, and fill your car with the wrong kind of fuel, it won’t run very well, if at all.
    That’s what most people are trying to do in life. They are listening to outside influences, and that’s when all the “shoulds” come in.
    It’s the belief that you have to focus on money in order to build a successful business. I did this in the beginning, so I know what it’s like.
    You want to do your research and know whether or not your idea is viable, but if you don’t do something you’re passionate about, your car will run out of fuel sooner or later.
    It is your passion that will fuel your journey for the rest of your life.
    The problem is that you may not know how to even start finding and following your passion. I had the same problem when I was starting out, but eventually things clicked.
  12. Meditate
    Ever had the experience of your mind racing out of control? It almost feels like you’re going crazy, doesn’t it?
    A great way to calm yourself (and your mind) down is to meditate. Even five minutes of meditation can do wonders.
    Meditation has taught me to see through the dance of thought. I have thoughts. I have worries. And I have fears.
    But I can observe them without getting too involved. It’s not always so simple, but knowing that I am not my thoughts is a tremendous help.
    What’s important is not to just know it intellectually, but to see how you create your experience of life.
  13. Express Yourself
    I find writing therapeutic. It’s something I love to do. It calms me. It’s inspiring, and it infuses my life with serenity.
    I highly recommend you try journaling or just writing down your thoughts after every day. If you’ve tried to solve problems in your head, you know it doesn’t work.
    You can have a conversation on paper, freewrite, and solve problems easily. It has the ability to change your life completely..
  14. Kill Your Comfort Zone
    If you want to change your life in the most positive sense, get comfortable with being out of your comfort zone.
    When you’re learning something new, you’ll bump into the walls of your comfort zone.
    Your spirit yearns for freedom. It’s when you put yourself into a little box that your spirit feels the need to rebel. You start feeling bored, and restless.
    You don’t have to suddenly infuse your life with discomfort. All you have to do is dip your toes from time to time.
  15. Flow
    Let’s face it. You don’t know what you want.
    Most people think they know what they want. They make five and ten year plans, acting as if they know all the variables of life.
    I’m on board with making plans and setting goals. But I don’t rigidly stick to them. You will miss opportunities if you disregard the whispers of your heart, if you trade the present moment for the future.
    You miss life.
    It’s like driving with all the windows painted black except the front window. You see where you’re going, but you miss everything else.
    Accept that life brings you possibilities. You don’t always know where your life will go. But go with the flow, and you will be where you need to be.

    16. Focus

    In order to change your life, you have to change your focus.
    If you don’t take control of your mind, it will run amok. You will focus on the negative. You will imagine the worst possible scenarios.
    What works for me is to focus on who is aware of the thoughts swirling in my head.
    There’s an awareness there.
    When I focus on it, I almost immediately relax. I see how my thoughts take me on a roller coaster ride of emotions. One day I can feel fine, and one day I can feel miserable.
    The only difference is thought.
    But there’s one thing most people miss when I share this: I’m not talking about changing my thoughts. I don’t try to change anything. Instead, I observe my thoughts, and let them be. I’m mindful of what’s going on.
    Here’s a quick video on how I went from miserable to loving life:
  16. Read
    I love reading.
    We live and die by stories. My life has changed several times by reading a book.
    The stories you read have a profound effect on how you view the world. You can be stuck on a problem, and the solution can pop into your mind while you’re reading.
    Your mind does not work sequentially. You can be reading something, then something goes click, and your life changes forever.
    And as you’re reading these very words, it causes you to think, doesn’t it?
    In order for you to make sense out of the funny letters you see here, you have to go inside, and make sense out of it from your own map of the world.
  17. Befriend the Unknown
    You never know what you need. Remember point #15, going with the flow?
    When you’re open to the unknown, which is a synonym for possibility, you accept that life may bring you something negative to teach you a positive lesson.
    I had some horrible days when I played poker. It can murder you psychologically, especially if you’re playing it for a living like I was.
    At one point I was looking up at the sky and asking “Why?”
    It helped me realize what’s truly important in life. It isn’t money, or material wealth, although those things can be nice.
    You just never know what life will bring, so you might as well become curious.
    How will the seemingly negative turn to positive in your life? What are you learning?
  18. Reclaim Your Personal Power
    Stop looking to others for approval. Just like taking responsibility (#9), you have to reclaim your personal power.
    You know what to do. You can feel it. You just haven’t been listening to that inner voice until now.
    It’s easy to give the decision to someone else, but it’s your life. The sooner you realize that, the more fun you will have.
    What do you want to do right now?
    If you don’t know, then start somewhere, because action will bring clarity.
  19. Accept Failure
    You will make mistakes.
    And you won’t even know if they are mistakes when you make them, because mistakes and failures have a tendency to transform into blessings.
    You only fail if you give up, so if you never give up, you can never fail, only learn, and grow.
  20. Remember Who You Are
    And above all, remember that you are always more than you think you are.
    You are more than your problems, more than your fears, and more than your body.
    I learned this from an excellent NLP trainer called John Overdurf.
    It’s only when you focus on your problems and believe them to be you that you get into trouble.
    So, remember to relax, because life is way too important to take seriously

A Beautiful Way OF Looking at Things.

two-side
A Father was reading a magazine and his little daughter every now and then distracted him. To keep her busy, he tore one page on which was printed the map of the world. He tore it into pieces and asked her to go to her room and put them together to make the map again.

He was sure she would take the whole day to get it done. But the little one came back within minutes with perfect map……When he asked how she could do it so quickly, she said, “Oh…. Dad, there is a man’s face on the other side of the paper….. I made the face perfect to get the map right.” She ran outside to play leaving the father surprised.

MORAL OF THE STORY: There is always the other side to whatever you experience in this world. Whenever we come across a challenge or a puzzling situation, look at the other side…. You will be surprised to see an easy way to tackle the problem.

Truths that Help You Grow

personalgrowth

As you look back on your life, you will often realize that many of the times you thought you were being rejected from something good, you were in fact being redirected to something better. You can’t control everything. Sometimes you just need to relax and have faith that things will work out. Let go a little and just let life happen. Because sometimes the truths you can’t change, end up changing you and helping you grow.

Here are twelve such truths…

1 Everything is as it should be. It’s crazy how you always end up where you’re meant to be – how even the most tragic and stressful situations eventually teach you important lessons that you never dreamed you were going to learn. Remember, oftentimes when things are falling apart, they are actually falling into place.

2 Not until you are lost in this world can you begin to find your true self. Realizing you are lost is the first step to living the life you want. The second step is leaving the life you don’t want. Making a big life change is pretty scary. But you know what’s even scarier? Regret. Vision without action is a daydream, and action without vision is a nightmare. Your heart is free, have the courage to follow it. Read Awaken the Giant Within.

3 It’s usually the deepest pain which empowers you to grow to your full potential. It’s the scary, stressful choices that end up being the most worthwhile. Without pain, there would be no change. But remember, pain, just like everything in life, is meant to be learned from and then released.

4 One of the hardest decisions you will ever face in life is choosing whether to walk away or take another step forward. If you catch yourself in a cycle of trying to change someone, or defending yourself again someone who is trying to change you, walk away. But if you are pursuing a dream, take another step. And don’t forget that sometimes this step will involve modifying your dream, or planning a new one – it’s OK to change your mind or have more than one dream.

5 You have to take care of yourself first. Before befriending others, you have to be your own friend. Before correcting others, you have to correct yourself. Before making others happy, you have to make yourself happy. It’s not called selfishness, it’s called personal development. Once you balance yourself, only then can you balance the world around you. Read Psycho-Cybernetics.

6 One of the greatest freedoms is truly not caring what everyone else thinks of you. As long as you are worried about what others think of you, you are owned by them. Only when you require no approval from outside yourself, can you own yourself.

7 You may need to be single for awhile before you realize that, although the co-owned belongings from your failed relationships might not have been divided equally, the issues that destroyed the relationships likely were. For how can you stand confidently alone, or see the same issues arising in your newest relationship, and not realize which broken pieces belong to you? Owning your issues, and dealing with them, will make you far happier in the long run, than owning anything else in this world.

8 The only thing you can absolutely control is how you react to things out of your control. The more you can adapt to the situations in life, the more powerful your highs will be, and the more quickly you’ll be able to bounce back from the lows in your life. Put most simply: being at peace means being in a state of complete acceptance of all that is, right here, right now.

9 Some people will lie to you. Remember, an honest enemy is better than a friend who lies. Pay less attention to what people say, and more attention to what they do. Their actions will show you the truth, which will help you measure the true quality of your relationship in the long-term.

10 If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never have enough. If you are thankful for what you do have, you will end up having even more. Happiness resides not in possessions, and not in gold; happiness dwells in the soul. Abundance is not about how much you have, it’s how you feel about what you have. When you take things for granted, your happiness gets taken away. Read The Happiness Project.

11 Yes, you have failed in the past. But don’t judge yourself by your past, you don’t live there anymore. Just because you’re not where you want to be today doesn’t mean you won’t be there someday. You can turn it all around in the blink of an eye by making a simple choice to stand back up – to try again, to love again, to live again, and to dream again.

12 Everything is going to be alright; maybe not today, but eventually. There will be times when it seems like everything that could possibly go wrong is going wrong. And you might feel like you will be stuck in this rut forever, but you won’t. Sure the sun stops shining sometimes, and you may get a huge thunderstorm or two, but eventually the sun will come out to shine. Sometimes it’s just a matter of us staying as positive as possible in order to make it to see the sunshine break through the clouds again.

LIBERATING MARRIAGE FROM THE SEXUAL SINS OF THE PAST

IMG-20160613-WA000

Many husbands and wives struggle with guilt from wrong sexual choices they’ve made in the past. Others are bitter about wrong choices made by an abuser. Still others wrestle with anger over wrong choices a spouse has made in having an affair.

 

These ghosts from the past can have profound negative effects on a marriage – both in the bedroom and in every other area of a relationship. A husband who won’t take personal responsibility for his actions may unfairly accuse his wife of wrongdoing. A wife who was abused as a child may be too inhibited to be intimate. Spouses who had sexual relations with each other before marriage while publicly professing a commitment to wait may blame each other for the shame they feel.

If dark clouds of this sort are hanging over your marriage, take heart. It is possible to leave the past behind and make a new start. The solution in every instance is to embrace reality and cultivate honesty. It’s a matter of turning a deaf ear to Satan’s lies and learning to speak truth about your past. The words of the apostle Paul have a special application to this situation: “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God” (Romans 12:2).

If you’re suffering from the fallout of your sexual past, here are some things you should keep in mind.

 1) Unresolved hurt from your sexual past disrupts healthy sexual functioning. Many people have been pressured into a sexual act at some point in their lives. The intense emotions that are part of such events are often too much for a child or adolescent to process. Consensual sex prior to, or outside of, marriage may also influence present sexual functioning. If either of these scenarios describes you, don’t be surprised or alarmed if you’re experiencing sexual difficulties in your marriage. Instead, face the problem honestly and determine to seek a solution.

 2) Problems are opportunities to draw closer to God. A troubled sexual past may look insurmountable, but it isn’t – not if you run toward God instead of away from Him. Only a relationship with Him through Christ can set us free from guilt, shame, and anger.

 3) God wants to heal the deep hurts of your sexual past. Healing is available, but it has to be individually applied to each wounding of the human spirit. The first step in sexual healing is gaining the courage to face your pain. This process may be time-consuming and may require the help of others. Because broken trust is always involved at some level, you must deal simultaneously with the two things you fear most: recalling the trauma and becoming vulnerable again.

4) Core beliefs, thoughts, and feelings affect present sexual behavior. Outward behavior is really the tip of an iceberg composed of underlying emotions, thoughts, and core beliefs. Great freedom comes from understanding these factors and the deeper assumptions that drive them.

 5) Professional help is often needed to resolve past sexual hurts. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and with the help of qualified Christian therapists, many sexually wounded people come to experience profound emotional healing. This includes breaking longstanding destructive behavior patterns.

*I AM BECAUSE WE ARE* *UBUNTU*

*UBUNTU*

unity
– A heart warming story from Africa

The motivation behind the Ubuntu culture …

An anthropologist proposed a game to the African tribal children …

He placed a basket of sweets near a tree

And made the children stand 100 metres away.

Then announced that whoever reaches first would get all the sweets in the basket.

When he said ‘ready steady go!’ …

Do you know what these children did?

They held each other’s hands, ran together towards the tree, divided the sweets equally among themselves, ate the sweets and enjoyed it.

When the anthropologist asked them why they did so, they answered ‘Ubuntu’.

Which meant –
_’How can one be happy when the others are sad?’_

Ubuntu in their language means –
_’I am because we are!’_

A strong message for all generations. Let all of us always have this attitude and spread happiness wherever we go.

Let us strive to have an *_Ubuntu_* life …

O ur intentions create

Grow With Change

3d_899.jpg

Change is inevitable, but growth is optional; you’ll either fight it or flow with it, but know this-if you’re not willing to leave Egypt, you’ll never get to the Promised Land.
Author Gayle Sheehey says, “if you can’t change, you won’t grow, and if you’re not growing, you’re not really living. Growth means giving up familiar but limiting patterns, safe but unrewarding work, values no longer believed in, and relationships that have lost their meaning. Taking a new step or uttering a new word is what we fear most, but in reality, our fear should be the exact opposite.”
Rabbi Samuel Silver writes, “The greatest of all miracles is that we need not to be tomorrow what we are today, if only we’ll use the potential implanted within us by God.”
I can’t think of anything worse than living a stagnant life devoid of change and improvement-can you.
You must accept the change and grow along with it to have. Successful and full filed life.
Today and now is the best time to change, make the decision to grow then accept the change and grow with it.

Ways That We Unknowingly Hurt Our Spouse

I got this from Creflo Dollar ministry Weekly grace and I will love to share with my readers.
 
Dear Reader
 
The title of today’s devotional may have piqued your interest.
 
Many times in relationships, especially marriages, people focus on themselves and what they are getting from their spouse with very little time spent considering how they may be causing or perpetuating some of the issues in their relationship. Most, if not all, of the issues stem from self‑centeredness. Self-centeredness opens the door to grief, offense, hurt, and many other problems, including these seven ways that many husbands and wives injure each other:
 
Seven ways a wife injures her husband unknowingly:
1. Putting him down and criticizing him in front of others
2. Going behind him when he does something at home
3. Badgering him constantly
4. Using the “you always” phrase
5. Holding him responsible for her emotional well-being
6. Complaining about what she does not have or does not get to do
7. Showing no appreciation for his efforts
 
Seven ways a husband injures his wife unknowingly:
1. Cuts her out of the discussion
2. Fails to notice the difference she makes
3. Underestimates the small things
4. Speaks curtly or rudely, talks down to her
5. Corrects her as she is talking
6. Acts suspiciously or tries to hide information from her
7. Admires other women over her
 
When we are self‑centered, we ignore the needs of others and only focus on our own. Husbands and wives can injure each other without being aware of it because all they are focused on are themselves, rather than the other person in the marriage. Take some time this week to disregard what has been said or done to you and really consider the other person’s needs. Commit to allowing God to use you to be a blessing to them however He sees fit.
 
Prayer for Today
Father, we humble ourselves under Your mighty hand, asking You to use us to be a blessing to our spouse or loved one this week. Show us ways to honor and not hurt them, regardless of what they have or have not done. Help us walk in love and forgiveness. We can do nothing apart from You and we believe that, as we walk in love, they will experience who You are in us and be forever changed for the better. It is in Jesus’ name that we pray and believe.
 
Amen.

IT Was Not So In The Beginning

We are created perfect and in the image of God Genesis 1:26 and we are created for dominion and we have been blessed by the creator himself Genesis 1:28. Along the way we lost that perfection, dominion and blessing through the activities of satan. God purpose and counsel has to stand He then send us his son Jesus to restore us back to the beginning. Today I will love to share with you the revelation God gave us during the morning dew with the Source Team.

Things that are made have the tendency of being spoiled and go bad, with or without the intention of the maker/creator therefore the need to provide an alternative to help check mate this
Jeremiah 18 told us the word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah at the potters house how the beautiful vessel he made was marred to his hand and that he made it again and it was beautiful.

Repair: when things spoiled or go bad they are repaired in order to get them back to sharp and perfect working order.

but some cannot be repaired so what to do is to “remake” it

Remake: those part that cannot not be repaired can be remade when they spoil or go bad so that we can still have them back to the working order it was created to function.

but still some cannot be remake so what to do is to “replace” it

Replace: when the spoiled part cannot to be repaired or remake then the need for replacement arises and then when that part is replaced, then whatever it is (object, Human beings) will now be in the original state it was made/created.

Must times we fail to call on our maker and creator whenever things go bad, we seem to seek help in the wrong place (calling a plumber to fix your electrical faults at home) Job 35:9-10 “Men cry out under a load of oppression; they plead for relief from the arm of the powerful. 10 But no one says, ‘Where is God my Maker, who gives songs in the night,” NIV this verse of the Bible gives us an example of how we behaved when face with challenges, I challenge you from today always look up to your maker who can repair, remake and replace whatever go bad in your life. Zechariah 9:11-12 “As for you, because of the blood of my covenant with you, I will free your prisoners from the waterless pit. 12 Return to your fortress, O prisoners of hope; even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you. NIV”. God has given us his son Jesus who has paid the price and restore double to us what was lost. Isaiah 14:5 “The Lord has broken the rod of the wicked, the scepter of the rulers.” NIV Isaiah 30:29 “And you will sing as on the night you celebrate a holy festival; your hearts will rejoice as when people go up with flutes to the mountain of the Lord, to the Rock of Israel.” NIV

Why not call upon the Lord God your maker who is merciful and compassionate and he mercies endures forever and are also new every morning who’s grace is sufficient who can Repair, Remake and Replace everything (heart, lungs, kidney, liver, finances, relationships etc) just mention it to him he will replace it.

Shalom.

PORTUGAL VICTORY: 10 BUSINESS LESSONS

PORTUGAL VICTORY: 10 BUSINESS LESSONS
1. Portugal is not a one-man team
Lesson: Let people hold an opinion of you. You know what and who you are and what you can do under immense pressure. All you need is an opportunity to show it.
2. Ronaldo made France better.
Lesson: Don’t eliminate your “best” competitor. Your competitor keeps you on your toes. If your competition is weak, good will be your better and better will be your best.
3. Portugal’s attack was blunted, but they did not concede a goal.
Lesson: It is not how much money you make; it is how much is saved. If you are not making money, don’t lose money.
4. 85% of the spectators cheered France.
Lesson: Crowd support is overrated. You are your greatest and best cheerleader.
5. Portugal held the ball in their half and made quick passes in France’s half
Lesson: Victory/success is planned. A team hardly happens on success.
6. The odds were against Portugal
Lesson: Don’t pay attention to the media and bookmakers. Give yourself a chance.
7. Despite his injury, Ronaldo “played” on the sidelines.
Lesson: Sometimes, inconvenience is secondary consideration. When you smell blood, do the overkill – with just one painful thrust.
8. France was arguably better than Portugal on the night.
Lesson: You are better than you think. You don’t have to be an Einstein to succeed. Determination could be everything.
9. Portugal made a celebration T-shirt before the game started.
Lesson: Believe success is possible. Plan your celebration dance.
10. Portugal did not play with Ronaldo
You don’t always need a star to be successful. Give your team members responsibility. #copied☝🏾

I WANT TO BE A TV

A Primary School teacher asked her pupils to write an essay on ”A wish you want from God?” At the end of the day, the teacher collected all the essays given by her pupils. She took them to her house, sat down and started marking.

Whilst marking the essays, she sees a strange essay written by one of her pupils. That essay made her very emotional. Her husband came and sat beside her and saw her crying. The husband asked her, “What happened?” “What’s making you cry”

She answered “Read this. It is one of my pupil’s essay.”

“Oh God, Make me a Television. I want to live like the TV in my house.

In my house, the TV is very valuable. All of my family members sit around it. They are very interested in it. When the TV is talking, my parents listen to it very happily.

They don’t shout at the TV. They don’t quarrel with the TV. They don’t slap the TV. So I want to become a TV.

The TV is the centre of attraction in my house. I want to receive the same special care that the TV receives from my parents. Even when it is not working, the TV has a lot of value.

When my dad and mom come home, they immediately sit in front of the TV, switch it on and spend hours watching it. The TV is stealing the time of my dad and my mom. If I become a TV, then they will spend their time with me.

While watching the TV, my parents laugh a lot and they smile many times. But I want my parents to laugh and smile with me also. So please God make me a TV.

And last but not the least, if I become a TV, surely I can make my parents happy and entertain them. Lord I won’t ask you for anything more. I just want to live like a TV. Please turn me into a TV.

The husband completed reading the essay. He said “My God, poor kid. He feels lonely. He did not receive enough love and care from his parents. His parents are horrible.”

The eyes of the primary School teacher filled with tears. She looked at her husband and said, “Our son wrote this essay.”

What do you think of this piece?

May our children never desire to be WhatsApp Phones o TV

Handle With Prayers: Don’t Let Anger Hurt You

As a carpenter went home after shutting down his workshop, a black poisonous cobra entered his workshop.

The cobra was hungry and hoped to find its supper lurking somewhere within. It slithered from one end to another and finally bumped into an axe and got very slightly injured.

In anger and revenge, the snake bit the axe with full force. What could a bite do to a metallic axe? Instead the cobra ‘s mouth started bleeding.

Out of fury and arrogance, the cobra tried it’s best to strangle and kill the object that was causing it pain by wrapping itself around the axe.

The next day when the carpenter opened the workshop, he found a dead cobra wrapped around the axe blades. The cobra didn’t die because of someone else’s fault but faced these consequences merely because of it’s own anger and wrath.

Sometimes when angry, we try to cause harm to others but as the time passes by, we realise that we have caused more harm to ourselves.

For a happy life, it’s best we should ignore and overlook things, people, incidents, affairs and matters.

It is not necessary that we show a reaction to everything. Step back and ask yourself if the matter is really worth responding to .

People who show no inclination to change, are best handled with  prayer.

WORTH SHARING!!!!
Good day my friends.

Eight things to remember when everything goes wrong

Eight things to remember when everything goes wrong

Happiness is not the absence of problems, but the ability to deal with them.  Imagine all the wondrous things your mind might embrace if it weren’t wrapped so tightly around your struggles. Always look at what you have, instead of what you have lost.  Because it’s not what the world takes away from you that counts; it’s what you do with what you have left.

 

Here are a few reminders to help motivate you when you need it most:

 

💢1.  *Pain is part of growing*
Sometimes life closes doors because it’s time to move forward.  And that’s a good thing because we often won’t move unless circumstances force us to.  When times are tough, remind yourself that no pain comes without a purpose.  

💢2.  *Everything in life is temporary*
After darkness there is always light – you are reminded of this every morning, but still you often forget, and instead choose to believe that the night will last forever.  It won’t.  Nothing lasts for ever.  If things are bad, don’t worry because it won’t last forever either.  

💢3.  *Worrying and complaining changes nothing*
Those who complain the most, accomplish the least.  It’s always better to attempt to do something great and fail than to attempt to do nothing and succeed.  

💢4.  *Your scars are symbols of your strength*
Don’t ever be ashamed of the scars life has left you with.  A scar means the hurt is over and the wound is closed.  It means you conquered the pain, learned a lesson, grew stronger, and moved forward. 

 

💢5.  *Every little struggle is a step forward*
In life, patience is not about waiting; it’s the ability to keep a good attitude while working hard on your dreams, knowing that the work is worth it.  So if you’re going to try, put in the time and go all the way.  Otherwise, there’s no point in starting. 

 

💢6.  *Other people’s negativity is not your problem*
Be positive when negativity surrounds you.  Smile when others try to bring you down.  It’s an easy way to maintain your enthusiasm and focus.  When other people treat you poorly, keep being you.  Don’t ever let someone else’s bitterness change the person you are.

 

💢 7.  *What’s meant to be will eventually, BE*
You can’t force things to happen.  You can only drive yourself crazy trying.  At some point you have to let go and let what’s meant to be, BE. In the end, loving your life is about trusting your intuition, taking chances, losing and finding happiness, cherishing the memories, and learning through experience.  It’s a long-term journey.  

💢 8.  *The best thing you can do is to keep going*
Don’t be afraid to get back up.  Don’t be afraid to love again.  Don’t let the cracks in your heart turn to hardened scar tissue.  Find the strength to laugh every day.  Find the courage to feel different, yet beautiful.  Find it in your heart to make others smile too. God help us to keep our focus on HIM. In times like this, God is closer than we think, and he is working extra-ordinarily to take us to a glorious height. Stay blessed.

Try Again

How many times does a baby fall before he learns to walk?

He does not say, “Why is God doing this to me?” nor declare himself a failure.
He just gets up and tries again and again until he learns to walk.

How quick we are to complain when things do not go the way we want, blaming others or even ourselves not understanding that the many falls strengthen us, make us stronger until at last we walk with firm serenity.

HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE

This is from Cardiologist
Please give your 2min and read this:-

1 Let’s say it’s 7.25pm and you’re going home (alone of course) after an unusually hard day on the job.

2 You’re really tired, upset and frustrated.

3 Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up in to your jaw. You are only about five km from the hospital nearest your home.

4 Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far.

5 You have been trained in CPR, but the guy who taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself.

6 HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE?
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only
about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.

7 However, these victims can help themselves by coughing
repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.

A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two
seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until
the heart is felt to be beating normally again.

8 Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing
movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital.

9 Tell as many other people as possible about this. It could save their lives!!

10 A cardiologist says If everyone who gets this mail
kindly sends it to 10 people, you can bet that we’ll save at least one life.

11 Rather than sending jokes, please..contribute by forwarding this mail which can save a person’s life….

12 If this message comes around you ……more than once…..please don’t get irritated……U need to be happy that you have many friends who care about you & being reminded of how to tackle….Heart attacks….AGAIN

LIFE AFTER 55

LIFE AFTER 55
An article.

Life can begin at 55,
It is all in your hands!
Many people feel unhappy, health-wise and security-wise, after 60 years of age, owing to the diminishing importance given to them and their opinions. But, it need not be so, if only we understand the basic principles of life and follow them scrupulously. Here are ten mantras to age gracefully and make life after retirement pleasant.

1. Never say I am aged:
There are three ages, chronological, biological, and psychological. The first is calculated based on our date of birth; the second is determined by the health conditions; the third is how old we feel we are. While we don’t have control over the first, we can take care of our health with good diet, exercise and a cheerful attitude. A positive attitude and optimistic thinking can reverse the third age.

2. Health is Wealth:
If you really love your kith and kin, taking care of your health should be your priority. Thus, you will not be a burden to them. Have an annual health check-up and take the prescribed medicines regularly. Do take health insurance coverage.

3. Money is important:
Money is essential for meeting the basic necessities of life, keeping good health and earning family respect and security. Don’t spend beyond your means even for your children. You have lived for them all through and it is time you enjoyed a harmonious life with your spouse. If your children are grateful and they take care of you, you are blessed. But, never take it for granted.

4. Relaxation and Recreation:
The most relaxing and recreating forces are a healthy religious attitude, good sleep, music and laughter. Have faith in God, learn to sleep well, love good music and see the funny side of life.

5. Time is Precious:
It is almost like holding a horses’ reins. When they are in your hands, you can control them. Imagine that everyday you are born again. Yesterday is a cancelled cheque. Tomorrow is a promissory note. Today is ready cash – use it profitably. Live this moment; live it fully, now, in the present time.

6. Change is the only Permanent Thing:
We should accept change – it is inevitable. The only way to make sense out of change is to join in the dance. Change has brought about many pleasant things. We should be happy that our children are blessed.

7. Enlightened Selfishness:
All of us are basically selfish. Whatever we do, we expect something in return. We should definitely be grateful to those who stood by us. But, our focus should be on the internal satisfaction and the happiness we derive by doing good for others, without expecting anything in return. Perform a random act of kindness daily.

8. Forget and Forgive:
Don’t be bothered too much about others’ mistakes. We are not spiritual enough to show our other cheek when we are slapped in one. But for the sake of our own health and happiness, let us forgive and forget them. Otherwise, we will be only increasing our blood pressure.

9. Everything has a Purpose:
Take life as it comes. Accept yourself as you are and also accept others for what they are. Everybody is unique and is right in his own way.

10. Overcome the Fear of Death:
We all know that one day we have to leave this world. Still we are afraid of death. We think that our spouse and children will be unable to withstand our loss. But the truth is no one is going to die for you; they may be depressed for some time. Time heals everything and they will go on.

PREPARING TO BECOME A WIFE: TEN (10) TIPS FOR SINGLE WOMAN

Wedding rings

Many women dream of that special day. You know the one, where all of the attention is on her in that gorgeous white dress. The flowers, the decorations, the fancy cars and let’s not forget, her Prince Charming. Most women have an idea of what age they will be when Mr. Right asks her to spend the rest of her life with him. She has the colors picked out, the ideal season, the wedding party and even the guest list! To many women, the wedding day is the turning point in her life that will lead to her happily ever after. Many of have focused (let’s be honest) so much time and thought on the wedding such that they have never spent enough time and energy on the most important part Preparing To Become A Wife! Marriage takes work! I am talking about 24/7/365 work! The great thing about the marital covenant is that when you give it your all, you can live Happily Ever After.

1. Develop an intimate relationship with God.

You cannot enter into a successful covenant with a husband if you don’t first have one with God. Seek wisdom, study the word, develop a life of prayer and be dedicated to living for God. This will strengthen the marriage covenant when God allows you to walk into that season. A three-cord strand is not easily broken.

2. Master the art of fidelity and trust.

No man wants a woman who cannot be faithful or one that turns her neck at every fine man that she sees. Learn to 100% committed prior to a serious courtship. Be happy with what God has blessed you with and cultivate your relationship. It is also important to be a woman of your word. If you promise to do something, be sure to do it!

3. Develop the ability to take care of a home.

Ladies, in order to be a great partner in marriage, you must bring the ability to emotionally and physically take care of the house. Learn to set an atmosphere of peace and love. Avoid quarrels when possible. Practice gentleness with others that cross your path.

4. Learn how to cook!

My mother once told me that a woman who cannot cook is not cute! We know that men like to eat. Let’s be serious here. We all need to eat to live. Eating out all of the time can become expensive and who doesn’t love a home-cooked meal from time to time. If you cannot do anything beyond boil water, invest in a cookbook. Try one new meal a week and you will quickly improve your cooking skills.

5. Make smart financial decisions.

If you desire to marry a man that provides and makes the best decisions for his family, you need to do the same. Smart men don’t want to marry a woman who spends way more than she saves. Work on your budget and be sure to have an emergency fund. Preparing for tomorrow is important. The ability to manage money is important in marriage.

6. Be complete as one.

Be comfortable with not having a man in this season. Learn to be happy on your own. Find joy in those things that make you happy. Love what you have and don’t covet what others have. Spend time in your singleness doing the things that you love to do. Travel, find hobbies and do the things that married women tell you that you won’t have time to do when you get married and then become a mother.

7. Learn the art of compromise.

Marriage will be about give and take. While you are single, learn that you don’t always have to be right and accept that most things will not always happen your way. Be willing to sacrifice what you want for the benefit and happiness of others. Wives have to compromise many things. The earlier we learn to compromise, the better off we will be in marriage.

8. Be committed to pursuing your dreams and supporting others.

It is important to have your own goals and motivations prior to becoming one with your future husbands. The single season is a great opportunity to begin building your career, business or working towards other goals. Learn how to support family and friends in their endeavors as well. When you become a wife, you will have to support your husband’s dreams, possibly at the expense of yours. You must me ok with this level of sacrifice and compromise prior to committing to marriage.

9. Know what submission is and be ready to walk in it.

Many people shy away from this discussion. Submission is not equivalent to obedience. Submission is yielding in love. Study God’s design for marriage and understand the role of a wife. In your singleness, God is your husband. Submit yourself to Him. Trust His plan and timing for your life. Seek His guidance in all that you do. Practicing submission now will be the driving force to it being second nature to you once you become a wife.

10. Be holy and feminine in your conduct.

Always carry yourself as a classy woman who walks with confidence. Men want a woman they are proud to take home to their families. They want a woman with high self-esteem, one who walks gracefully, respects herself and others around her. Marriage is a sacred bond between God, man and woman. This is a great starting list to help single women prepare.

Blessed . . . in the Eyes of God

Blessed . . . in the Eyes of God

What is happiness? Ask 20 different people to answer that question, and you’ll probably get 20 different answers.

But for the citizen of the kingdom of heaven, the path to true happiness is the path of blessedness described by Jesus in Matthew 5:1 – 11.

As Matthew Henry points out, until you know what true happiness is, you will never discover God’s path to find it.

Walk With Matthew Henry
“Happiness is the thing people pretend to pursue. But most form a wrong notion of it and miss the way.

“The general opinion is: Blessed are those who are rich and honorable in the world, who spend their days in mirth and their years in pleasure.

“Jesus comes to correct this fundamental error and give us quite another notion of blessedness.

“However paradoxical his teaching may appear to those in the world, to those who are saved it is a rule of eternal truth and certainty by which we must shortly be judged.

“If this, therefore, be the beginning of Christ’s doctrine, the Christian’s duty must be to take his measure of happiness from those maxims, and to direct his life accordingly.”

Walk Closer to God
Would you consider yourself truly happy if your life were characterized by meekness . . . mercy . . . poverty in spirit . . . persecution?

You would if you had God’s perspective on happiness.

Given the chance, the world will offer you a bogus substitute — a happiness dependent on money, prestige or circumstances.
Christ says true happiness consists of none of these.

But you must decide. Which notion of blessedness will you build your life on today? How do you complete the sentence “Happiness is . . .”?
Matthew 5:3

GRACE OF GOD that we are alive

Honesty Pays

I just saw this nice story with a wonderful lesson and thought to share it with u all, please enjoy:

An aging King realized that if he died he has no one to take over the throne. He decided to adopt a son.

He launched a competition and 10 boys made it to the top. The King said to them, “I have one last test and whoever comes top will become my adopted son and heir to my throne”.

He gave each boy a seed of corn and told them to take the seed home, plant and nurture it for 3 weeks. The 10 boys took their seeds and ran home to plant their seeds.

In one home, the boy and his parents were sad when the seed failed to sprout. The boy had done everything but he failed.

His friends advised him to buy a seed and plant it but his God fearing parents who had always taught him honesty refused.

The day came and the 10 boys went to the palace. All the 9 boys were successful.

The King went to each boy asking – “Is that what came out of the seed I gave you?” And each boy said “Yes, your majesty”. The King would nod and move down the line until the last boy in the line who was shaking with fear.

The King asked him – “What did you do with the seed I gave you?” The boy said “I planted it and cared for it your majesty but it failed to sprout.” The King went to the throne with the boy and said, “I gave these boys boiled seeds and a boiled seed cannot sprout.

If a King must have one quality, it must be honesty and only this boy passed the test.” We live in a society where people will do anything for success.

God sometimes does not give us things because He wants to teach us a lesson.

How many people out there have achieved success the wrong way? How many people send their children to expensive schools and build houses, buy expensive cars with stolen money?

How many people are occupying top positions yet they stole the certificates? How many people are successful out there at all costs?

HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL BE CROWNED AS KINGS IN HEAVEN FOR BEING FAITHFUL UNTIL THE END? I PRAY THAT I BE FAITHFUL TILL THE END!!!

Please be faithful to God no matter what life throws at you, even if life gives you boiled seed.

I hope you can spare me your precious time to send this to ten people to be faithful in their Christian life.

Little Things

Little Things

Lions, tigers, and bears, oh my!
It’s not the mighty beasts of the jungle that we need to worry about but rather the fleas, ticks, spiders that can bring us down.

Little bite here, another there buzzing in the ear, crawling thing you can’t find under your clothes. One by one they drive us to distraction.

World wars, famine, end of times will have to wait
because relentless mosquitoes are keeping me awake.

You laugh, but it is often little things that wear us down, make us give up steal the light from our eyes.

Pay attention to the every day petty faults and problems.
Stop them before they get worse.
Take care of your health your immediate world, family and friends for it is here that our problems begin.

How to Let Go: The 4 People You Must Forgive To Stay Happy

There are four people you need to forgive if you are serious about changing your life and learning how to live in the now.

The first are your parents, living or dead. You must absolutely forgive them for every mistake they ever made in bringing you up. At the very least, you should be grateful to them for giving you life. They got you here. If you are happy to be alive, you can forgive them for everything else. Never complain about them again.

By not forgiving your parents, you remain forever a child. You block your own chance to grow up and become a fully functioning adult. You continue to see yourself as a victim. Even worse, you keep your negative feelings of inferiority and anger alive. If your parents die without your having forgiven them, it can bother you for the rest of your life.

The second person or persons you must forgive are the people from your marriages or relationships that didn’t work out. These intimate relationships can be so intense, and so threatening to your feelings of self-esteem and self-worth, that you can be angry and unforgiving toward those people for years.

But you were at least partially responsible. Have the personal strength and integrity to say, “I am responsible,” and then forgive the other person and let him or her go. Say the words, “I forgive him/her for everything and I wish him/her well.” Each time you repeat this, the negative emotion attached to the memory will diminish. Soon it will be gone forever.

Many have found that “the letter” is the key to putting a bad relationship behind them forever. This is a powerful technique that can free you from feelings of anger and resentment almost instantly.

Here is how it works: You to sit down and write the other person a letter of forgiveness. It consists of three parts.

First you say, “I forgive you for everything you ever did that hurt me.”

Second, you write out a description or list of every single thing that you are still mad about. Some people write several pages in this part.

Third, you end the letter with the words, “I wish you well.”

You then take the letter to the mailbox and drop it in. At that moment, you will feel a huge sense of relief, and you will be free at last.

By the way, don’t worry about how the other person might react. That is not your concern. Your goal is to free yourself, to regain your peace of mind, and to get on with the wonderful life that lies ahead of you.

The third person you must forgive is everyone else in your life who has ever hurt you in any way. Let them go. Forgive every boss, business partner, friend, crook or betrayer who has ever caused you grief of any kind. Clean the slate and forgive to forget. Wipe each of their names and images off by saying, “I forgive him/her for everything, and I wish him/her well.” Repeat this statement each time you think of the person or situation until the negative feelings are gone.

The fourth and final person you have to forgive is yourself. You must absolutely forgive yourself for every silly, senseless, wicked, brainless, thoughtless or cruel thing you have ever done or said. Stop carrying these past mistakes around with you. That was then and this is now.

Think of it this way. When you did those things in the past that you still feel badly about, you were not the person you are today. At that time, you were a different person, younger and less experienced. You were not your true self. You were an immature version of the person you have become with experience. Stop beating yourself up for something that occurred in the past that you cannot change.

Just say, “I forgive myself for every mistake I ever made. I am a thoroughly good person and I am going to have a wonderful future.” Whenever you think of that event or situation, just repeat, “I forgive myself completely.” And then get on with your life. Focus on the future rather than the past and don’t look back. Look at where you are going rather than where you have been.

Finally, if you did something that hurt someone, and you still feel badly about it, you can go to that person, or write, and apologize. Tell the person you are sorry for what you did or said. Whatever his or her reaction, positive or negative, it doesn’t matter. The very act of repentance, of expressing regret, will set you free.

Some Facts About Nigeria

Here are some facts from our common heritage that should make you proud to be called a Nigerian:
NIGERIA4
1. Nigeria is home to seven percent (7%) of the total languages spoken on earth. Taraba state alone has more languages than 30 African countries. The importance of this fact is appreciated when one understands that language is the “soul of culture” (as Ngugi wa Thiongo famously said). It is language that births the proverbs, riddles, stories and other aspects of culture that give us identity. UNESCO puts forward that the world’s languages represents an extraordinary wealth of creativity. Linguistic diversity correlates with cultural diversity. This means Nigeria can look inwards and drive itself to become the greatest hub for cultural tourism on earth, and consequently empower its citizens tremendously in the process.

2. The Walls of Benin (800-1400AD), in present day Edo State, are the longest ancient earthworks in the world, and probably the largest man-made structure on earth. They enclose 6500 square kilometers of community lands that connected about 500 communities. At over 16000km long, it was thought to be twice the length of the Great Wall of China, until it was announced in 2012 (after five years of meticulous measurement by Chinese surveyors) that the Great Wall is about 21,000km long.

3. The Yoruba tribe has the highest rate of twin births in the world. Igbo-Ora, a little town in Oyo state, has been nicknamed Twin capital of the World because of its unusually high rate of twins that is put as high as 158 twins per 1000 births. In a video I watched last year on YouTube presented by Titi (a white lady who speaks Yoruba), and which was centred on twin births in Igbo-Ora, one of the locals boasted that every family in the town has at least one twin!

4. Sarki Muhammad Kanta The Great of Kebbi, was the only ruler who resisted control by Songhai, West Africa’s greatest empire at that time. He founded and ruled the Hausa city-state of Kebbi around 1600 A.D and built Surame its capital, a planned city which was almost impossible to penetrate during war. In fact UNESCO describes Surame as “one of the wonders of human history, creativity and ingenuity”, and probably the most massive stone-walled constructions in West Africa. He is listed in Robin Walker’s 50 Greatest Africans.

5. Africa’s oldest known boat is The Dufuna canoe which was discovered in Dufuna village, Yobe state, by a Fulani Herdsman in May 1987, while he dug a well. Various radio-carbon tests conducted in laboratories of reputable universities in Europe and America indicate that the canoe is over 8,000 years old, thus making it the oldest in Africa and 3rd oldest in the world. The discovery of the canoe has completely changed accepted theories of the history and sophistication of marine technology in Africa.

6. Sungbo’s Eredo, a 160 km rampart equipped with guard houses and moats, is reputed to be the largest single pre-colonial monument (or ancient fortification if you like) in Africa. It is located in present-day Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State and when it was built a millennium ago, it required more earth to be moved during construction than that used for building the Great Pyramid of Giza (one of the Seven Wonders of The Ancient World). The most astonishing thing is that Sungbo’s Eredo was the biggest city in the world (bigger than Rome and Cairo) during the Middle Ages when it was built!

7. Sarki Abdullah Burja of Kano (ruled 1438-1452 AD), the 18th ruler of Ancient Kano, created the first Golden Age in Northern Nigeria and ushered in a period of great prosperity. During his reign, Hausa became the biggest indigenous language spoken in Africa after Swahili. He is on the list of 50

Greatest Africans in Robin Walker’s wonderful book, “When We Ruled”.

8. The Jos Plateau Indigobird, a small reddish-brown bird, is found nowhere else on the planet but Plateau state, Nigeria.

9. The Anambra waxbill, a small bird of many beautiful colours, is found only in Southern Nigeria and nowhere else on earth.

10. The Niger Delta (which is the second largest delta on the planet), has the highest concentration of monotypic fish families in the world, and is

also home to sixty percent of Nigeria’s mangrove forests. You should know too that Nigeria’s mangrove forests are the largest in Africa and third largest on earth.

11. According to the World Resources Institute, Nigeria is home to 4,715 different types of plant species, and over 550 species of breeding birds and mammals, making it one of the most ecologically vibrant places of the planet.

12. Ile-Ife, in present day Osun State, was paved as early as 1000AD, with decorations that originated from Ancient America suggesting there might have been contact between the Yorubas and the Ancient Americans half a millenium before Columbus ‘discovered’ America.

Majority And Minority

An interesting insight into decision making

A group of children were playing near two railway tracks, one still in use while the other disused. Only one child played on the disused track, the rest on the operational track.

The train is coming, and you are just beside the track interchange. You can make the train change its course to the disused track and save most of the kids. However, that would also mean the lone child playing by the disused track would be sacrificed. Or would you rather let the train go its way?

Let’s take a pause to think what kind of decision we could make…

Most people might choose to divert the course of the train, and sacrifice only one child. You might think the same way, I guess. Exactly, I thought the same way initially because to save most of the children at the expense of only one child was rational decision most people would make, morally and emotionally. But, have you ever thought that the child choosing to play on the disused track had in fact made the right decision to play at a safe place?

Nevertheless, he had to be sacrificed because of his ignorant friends who chose to play where the danger was. This kind of dilemma happens around us everyday. In the office, community, in politics and especially in a democratic society, the minority is often sacrificed for the interest of the majority, no matter how foolish or ignorant the majority are, and how farsighted and knowledgeable the minority are. The child who chose not to play with the rest on the operational track was sidelined. And in the case he was sacrificed, no one would shed a tear for him.

The great critic Leo Velski Julian who told the story said he would not try to change the course of the train because he believed that the kids playing on the operational track should have known very well that track was still in use, and that they should have run away if they heard the train’s sirens. If the train was diverted, that lone child would definitely die because he never thought the train could come over to that track! Moreover, that track was not in use probably because it was not safe. If the train was diverted to the track, we could put the lives of all passengers on board at stake! And in your attempt to save a few kids by sacrificing one child, you might end up sacrificing hundreds of people to save these few ignorant kids.

While we are all aware that life is full of tough decisions that need to be made, we may not realize that hasty decisions may not always be the right one.

“Remember that what’s right isn’t always popular and what’s popular isn’t always right.”

Everybody makes mistakes; that’s why they put erasers on pencils.

*Strange things we do in Africa in the name of “It’s Our Culture

1. We care more for the dead than we do for the living!

2. We spend more to bury a person than we do to save their life.

3. We will not travel to go see a sick relative but will travel to bury him /her.

4. People will rarely respect you while alive but will want to “pay their last respects” to your casket.

5. A person may NEVER receive roses in their entire life but they will get lots dumped on their graveyard!

6. We will spend a night at a neighbour’s funeral and it will be our first time to see the inside of their house!

7. No one gives a damn to know your village until you die and they will all fill car after car to “escort” your corpse.

8. We will take the dead to the mosque/temple/church knowing fully well they had nothing to do with worship while alive.

9. We might not have granite tops in our kitchens but use the granite in the graveyard!

10. An entire village might not have a single house with cement floors but the only place with cement will be a graveyard!

*It is proposed we have “Cultural Reforms”. We have a culture of “hypocrisy”
… a culture that is “Pro-death” and NOT “Pro-life!”*
*We need to value life BEFORE death.*
*Best person ever who came to my heart left with scars but l will never forget that touch* Please love me while I am alive, show me your kindness now that I need it, your presence at my funeral will never make up for your absence when I have the greatest need of you. Do it now than regret later.

LIFE IS A GIFT

Hello my friends,

Give me a few minutes of your time and read what I have to say about life. Here we go…

This life is a gift; a short, transient and fleeting experience. I’m writing this because I noticed humans are overzealous in nature, greedy and having excessive ambition.

All the choices we make in life (weather good or bad), all the hard work and all the competition will one day be useless and not matter. Today we’re here and tomorrow we’re no more. Its just a matter of decades before we will be replaced by a generation that probably wouldn’t know we ever existed. The wisest, the richest, the handsome, the prettiest… at the end we will all look the same: a mass of bones! We will all pass away, only remembered by the love and kindness we’ve shown. We take life a shade too serious; serious in a foolish way. I think of this world no more than I think of a camp. We’re all here. We’re supposed to be pitching tents here and building mansions up there but we’re doing it the other way round.

Why lose sleep over misfortunes? Why envy your friend when they are “better” than you? As if both of you are not going to fade away. Why worry? As if present doesn’t become past. Why get so anxious? As if the future won’t come to pass.

Its just too bad that our approach to life is so wrong. We let fame and success go into our heads and allow disappointments and misfortunes weigh us down. I have a lot to say but I’ll have to stop here otherwise I’ll be a bore.

Live with no strife, show love and be kind, eat a lot of healthy food (I love food 😋) and learn the art of living peacefully with men. ✌
