I AM TIRED OF BEING TIRED!

Everything just seem blurry and no way ahead. Our leaders can’t repair common porthole talk much of our road networks. I wonder why they can’t be proactive rather than reactive.
See how dirty our streets are looking, mosquitoes and well-fed rats residing with us without charge. . . All their fault! No proper drainage system.

Doctors especially nurses are just misbehaving behaving like gods when they’re to be saving lives.

The teller guys and the so called customer service people 👫are just annoying! They just talk to people in a harsh manner. When they were seeking employment they spoke very nicely o but now they are bosses.

Children of nowadays are just unbecoming talking to their elders anyhow, no respect of any kind. They dress anyhow and their parents are just looking at them like they cannot do anything.

Adults are just acting like they know nothing, the way some talk nowadays will make you sick😷.

That’s how our leaders will be travelling out anyhow without listening to the voice of the people as if they put themselves there. Later they will say change begins with you.

Indomie that used to be #25 is now #60, even gala hmm . . . common pure water🌊 is now expensive. The price of everything is on the rise!
Everything is just somehow. . .
Well, God will help us.

FOR GOD’S SAKE ARE YOU THE CHIEF COMPLAINER OF YOUR SOCIETY?

What positive thing are you doing?
How many negative things have you contributed to the way things are right now?
Do you have the right to complain?
When last did you speak the truth?
When last did you pray?

Stop that bad habit and Do something!

Get Off the Traffic!

It happened one day that a child was fighting with someone that was defeating him already. His dad who’s a professional wrestler said, haven’t I told you to always call me when someone dares to fight with you?
He dad took up the fight and the rest is history . . .

Many us are like this child forget that someone has fought and is still capable of fighting for us.
If God be for us . . who dare be against us? Who or what?!

Why are you fighting a battle you know on your own you cannot finish let alone win? Why are you so engrossed with life issues that you make them weigh you down so badly? Why are you so cumbered with fear, discouragement, depression, anxiety, regrets, disappointments, shame, etc that you forget that someone who was able to cry the weight of THE WHOLE WORLD can carry yours anytime? (Psalm 46:1)

image

So you’ve started fighting yourself again this year and automatically others. Feeling bad about how you haven’t seen a green light yet, how you’ve lost your relationship again, how you’ve lost your job, how business doesn’t look good, how you feel you will not get it right again, how you haven’t gotten the job, how no business idea is coming, how, how, and how. . .
Why are you beating yourself so hard when the one who CONTROLS the world says BE STILL! And recognise, understand, believe, know, agree, trust, accept that I am God? (Psalm 46:10)

image

Stop fighting! Get off the traffic! Why do you enjoy being in traffic? Yes there is a delay or traffic or denial or disappointment, it’s obvious, yes. . .
But why decide to stay put in there?
Get off the traffic! Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the “traffic”.
Yes acknowledge the presence of issues but don’t regard them. . . it’s a fact that they are there but the truth is Jesus is ALWAYS with you as well, ALWAYS.

Don’t let these things get at you this year again, no no no, Stop Fighting! Be Still.
Let the One who controls everything and person and circumstance and issue step in. Step Off, Step aside, Get Off, Step Out!

The Lord All-Powerful is with you!
Be Still! Lay it all down, be still.
You will see and hear better and clearly when you’re still.
Let not your heart be clouded by all these unreal facts . . .
Hold on to The Truth, The Way, and The Life.
When some ways are proving stubborn, simply introduce them to The Way! When lies begin to flood your heart again, tell them about The Truth. When the fight is draining you, beckon on The Life!

It’s your year to breakforth and Shine but Stop Fighting. . .
Ain’t you tired of fighting?

Cause And Effect.

Cause And Effect.

Don’t look at her!
But why?
Because I don’t want you to look at her.
Tell me why. Don’t just look.
Tell me the reason. I have my reason, don’t just look! Period!
Can anyone relate?

This happened between a mother and her 6 or 7 years old son.
I secretly smiled where I sat when the young boy demanded for a reason not to look. I was however disappointed when his mum yelled and said, I have my reason, don’t just look!
Who says the boy doesn’t have his reason(s) for looking?

Myles Munroe in one of his numerous books said, “When the purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable”.
Our Lord Jesus whom we are striving to be like always told his followers then the “cause and the effect” of whatever counsel or advise He gave.
Check Deuteronomy 28, John 15: 1- 17. . .If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good of the land. But if you turn . . . Isaiah 1: 19-20.
Many of us parents, teachers, leaders, etc., tend to give instructions and expect them to be followed without saying the consequences of yielding or not.

The truth is when people know the consequences of their action they tend to reason well before choosing. Even though some still choose wrongly, we would have done well by spelling out the pros and cons           

Gone are the days when we were “indoctrinated” not counselled as it were. . .
We need to start educating people about the Word of God, their health, goals, and even morals. I am of the opinion that people will choose rightly if they know the consequences of their action and if they know they are responsible for their deeds.

Parents desire to help their kids grow avoiding the mistakes they made without telling them what led to their mistake.
They act as dictators and bodyguards. . .believe me, they’ll surely try out what you commanded them not to do in your absence.
Children, nowadays are extremely curious, inquisitive, creative, and innovative. . .Bless them. …

image

So, tell them and let them choose, don’t command or try to choose for them.
Jesus won’t do that . . .He is a good Shepherd that guards/guides but leaves us to our choices. . .expecting us to choose Life though #wink

Choose today who you want to be, a dictator or a good shepherd.

A Bear? Fight!

A Bear? Fight!

I recently saw a movie, it’s about how a man sojourned in the forest due to war and ended up “trying” to take revenge over the death of his wife and son (he eventually allowed God to handle it).

The scene of interest is where he fought with a bear. . . . Oh my God.
It was a terrible experience, the bear broke his bones, tore his flesh, and left him half dead. But guess what? The man did not give up. He faced the bear lying down with a knife and stabbed it to death! He was laid down by the bear but still killed it uhhhhh!

I was immediately reminded of David (the shepherd boy). He killed a bear as well as a lion. You want to tell me he wasn’t injured those days? Well, it wasn’t recorded but I’m seeing it from the angle of him being injured. He fought and was alive to tell the story hmmm. . . no one did that for him. He pressed on and won! A bear is very heavy (750kg, 1650Ib) and I can imagine it pouncing and standing on someone . .   oh dear . . .

Sometimes life’s challenges can pounce on and weigh us down like the bear but we have to fight to finish. No one should tell the story for us. It’s sad how some people fought for their country’s democracy and never witnessed what they fought for.
image

We must know that the price and glory ahead of us cannot be compared to the present challenge(s) that we face or the ones that we will face.
We must be persistent in our fight.
We have to fight in this our Christian race.
We have to fight for our dreams.
We have to fight against corruption and the devil’s lies.
We have to fight against fear and all odds.
We have to fight against everything limiting us.
We have to stand for the truth.

Now who says the bear (challenges) won’t hurt you? It might but You won’t just give in . . . tell yourself it’s too late to give up.
We are hedged in (pressed) on every side [troubled and oppressed in every way], but not cramped or crushed; we suffer embarrassments and are perplexed and unable to find a way out, but not driven to despair; We are pursued (persecuted and hard driven), but not deserted [to stand alone]; we are struck down to the ground, but never struck out and destroyed;
2 Corinthians 4:8-9 AMP

Let Faith rise up within you. . . He rewards only those who are diligent (pressing) in their faith.
And stand up to WHATEVER your challenge(s) may be because faithful is He who has promised . . . I will not leave you neither will I forsake you. . .
image

We must be able to say like Paul “I have fought the good (worthy, honourable, and noble) fight, I have finished the race, I have kept (firmly held) the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7AMP”

Keep pressing . . .
Have a persistent faith.
Keep fighting. . .
Keep winning!

What Valentine is Not!

I really do not know what the colour red has done to me but I really do not like the colour. That is what most people will be putting on today, at least a touch of it on their outfit. Nice isn’t it? But what is this day all about? Why do we even celebrate it? It’s to share gifts and red roses, for red carpets, and to celebrate love. I agree in a way . . . read what a Catholic Father had to say about the real meaning of Valentine.

It’s a shame that many have decided to spend so much on themselves and people they know so well on this day when the main person spent his time with someone he didn’t really have any connection with.
Many young adults and unmarried youths prepared or unprepared give in and donate/loose their virginity on this day all in the name of showing love. . .
What has sex got to do with those who are not married in the first place?

image

I’m not trying to be all spiritual here but think about it. . . someone imprisoned and still thought it good to share the love of God with a little girl? Isn’t that something worth it? Even though he knew he was going to die he preferred to stand for whom he believed and did something close to what Christ did.

What have you done for the sake of Christ? Do you chicken out when you’re torn  between Christ and the world? Do you give to those in need of any kind, Christ inclusive? Are you shy of even talking about Him?

I think that is what Valentine means. . . it’s more than giving red roses. Yes, it was an act of love but it wasn’t mainly between couples, it wasn’t mainly between a boyfriend and a girlfriend. Don’t get me wrong it is NOT wrong to celebrate it between couples (at any level) but the HOW is what might be the issue.

Show love EVERYDAY. . .Make is it a Lifestyle. Share God’s love today with means loved ones and especially to those who need your love -the less privileged, the orphans, etc.  Those who will appreciate it more and be able to say like St Valentine, thanks My Valentine.

Now that you know what Valentine is Not, celebrate it differently this year. . .

HAPPY VALENTINE!!!!

The Specialist. . .

It’s been a while since I came here my dear friends. I did not want to rush it this year but something I must share came up today.

If you remember I wrote on  Dyslexia sometimes ago. A girl I know inspired that write up.
The girl was like a major worry for everyone; people have tried and given up. Imagine a 5 year old girl in a class of 3 year olds unable to talk or write well. . .
I tried as well, I was enthusiastic at first but later I started getting weary when nothing was forthcoming. Sometimes, I’ll just let her write when it was convenient for me.

I had fasted and prayed for her, I have tried all I knew but no improvement. . . I got frustrated at some point that I suggested that the girl be referred to a specialist.
Alas, the Specialist showed up today!
I decided to hold her hand to write today and then I noticed she wanted to write herself. I almost hesitated saying to myself that she just want to scribble. But then I gave her a chance, I said circle . . and stroke (alphabet a) and there you go! She wrote herself! I couldn’t hold it up I was moved to tears at what God alone did.

So tell me what’s that situation that has lingered for so long that you’re now beginning to get tired of or that you’re at the verge of giving up? Please don’t even think about it. It may be delayed but it cannot be cut short. The Specialist is still available, the One who changes situation when and however He pleases without notice; the One who can diagnose our conditions more than we can. The One who sees and knows all things. The Owner of time and chance. Our Help in ages past, Our Ever present Help. He still does work.

He spoke to me about this passage yesterday, “Jesus said to her, Did I not tell you and promise you that if you would believe and rely on Me, you will see the glory of God? John 11:40 AMP”

imageI didn’t understand it until today wow! You’ve just got to believe and trust Him to do whatever He has promised.
It’s getting frustrating you may say, my dear, press a little further, take another step, do it again, apply again. . .Keep on going like the clock, please don’t give in or up.

imageIt’s another month so keep holding on, keeping praising, keeping trusting. . . it will not tarry, it will come.

Happy New Month!

Way Maker– Happy New Month

It feels amazing to finally see the last month of the year not because it’s the Christmas month but because it’s been a long wonderful journey.
I’m excited because it’s my month of birth and that of Jesus Christ. Welcome to December!

I thought to myself what will this month signify aside Christmas? This was the answer I got.

This morning I decided to go visit someone who lost her child (sad). I did not know where she resides but I felt obliged to go give my condolence to her. I stopped a bike man, told him how I didn’t know where I was going but I’d ask as we move along, and then go to my work place. He agreed. I prayed silently for direction.
Suddenly I said, pull over here I want to ask that lady if she knows the woman! I greeted and asked her, please do you know Mrs X’s house? She said, it’s this one and she called for her mum! I was dazed, so was the bike man.
There and then I exclaimed, you are the Way Maker! Who can beat that?!
I could not but share this because I know someone needs to be encouraged.

image

It’s the last month of the year and you’ve probably zeroed your mind that you’ll do better next year in your planning. You now feel you can’t get the direction you need or your request answered?
Believe, God is the Way Maker.
He said, forget the former things . . . I will make a way . . .Isaiah 43: 19.
Have you been walking in desert places? Behold, A way for you!

image

He’s never late, He is The Way!
The Way Maker will make a way for you before the year runs out.
Just believe.
Happy New Month. . .
Merry Christmas!

Happy Thanksgiving!

http://bible.com/8/1ch.29.13.AMP

There are a lot of things to be thankful for.
Recently, some people gathered together to thank God for the successful completion of their Christmas decoration and I was like really?!
Later this morning I thought about it deeply and I concluded that their thanksgiving was worth it.
Some climbed, some made use of sharp objects, used electrical appliances, did the planning, etc but there were NO casualties.
Isn’t that enough to thank God?

I asked God to please fix me, build my confidence, trust, and love this year. Honestly, even though I still struggle with the trust issue, He has been working on me.
It was tough at the beginning of the year for me but believe me I’m wiser, stronger, and better!
Was out of employment for a while but I’ve been provided for without having to beg.
I enjoy what I do now but I know He’s taking me to somewhere greater . . . I’m grateful.
Many have been my afflictions but God sorted them out!
Although I’m still expecting a lot from God, I’m grateful for all He’s done so far. 

image

Words cannot express how much I appreciate Him for my friends and family members.
There have been graduations, promotions, wedding ceremonies, child naming, healing, deliverance, breakthrough, change of jobs, including challenges, name it. . .
God has been good!

It’s that time of the year again when we thank God together so feel free to dig up reasons to be thankful and share with us here. . .

A grateful He will make fat. . .
Be thankful!

His Command made easy (Macho man II)

The service ended and I was talking to God about what I needed as I was about leaving.

When I boarded the second bus, I started feeling strange. I was like Oh no! Not now please, I just want to get home. I kept fighting with the voice inside of me. I brought out the tract and paused again, I asked how will I do it? They are tired and probably just want to get home and eat like me, maybe next time. . .
All that continued until a lady made it known that she will alight soon. Oops! my heart started racing. . . Oh God please help me, it’s your command and I don’t want to be insubordinate, that was my prayer.
Taadar! He helped me!

As the lady was preparing to alight I gave her  two tracts, one for the next person beside her and the other for herself. After reading the title of the tract (Which government is in charge), the women beside me said, God is in charge of all; He’s the one in charge of all governments. I smiled and said I thought you’ll mention the name of our President. She declined and reaffirmed that it is God.
From there we continued talking about God then I invited her for a medical outreach and helped her with her phone issue.

Then the voice came again and said, you see, it’s that simple! I made the road free as you asked and helped you to do my command against all odds.
My Macho man at work right? I replied.

image

God is truly interesting and amazing, He gives a command and provides the help (Macho Man) to do His command.
What is He asking you to do today?
All you need do is surrender and obey! His “commands” are not burdensome, don’t be weary, grace is available.

Be inspired!
