Nigeria the Floating Giant

Nigeria will remain a Sick Giant as long as it is perpetually bedeviled and plagued by grotesque incompetent leaders suffering from historical amnesia.

We will continue to progress retrospectively with abysmal ridicule from lesser countries.

Nigeria can rise again and take her place if our demographic mediocrity and parochial loyalty to individuals in power is subordinated to true nationalism; consciously and conscientiously buried.

Nigeria is merely floating at the moment. The crop of officialdom we have are nothing but a Tsunami to this raped Nation.

Nigeria has everything required to lead Africa. We have the intellectuals, we have the wealth, we have great men and women with vision; but focused and visionary leadership has remained a challenge since independence. Ethnicity, religion, zoning and primitive partisanship has continued to hold us back.

Nigerian has lost her birth-right and big brother status. We pray our children in their own generation wakes up the sleeping giant.

Africa will raise again!

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….✍🏾✍🏾

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.
