The moment I truly realised that time is for learning, time is for building, time is for growing, time is for making money, time is for knowledge acquisition, time is for doing things to stay healthy body, soul & mind, I stopped wasting time on frivolous things & people who add little or no value to time!
Be so busy achieving your goals, living your dreams, building your empire, serving in love, making your money, so that at the end of the day, you will be proud that you used your time effectively!
What are you doing with time? How well are you using time? Like the popular adage says, ‘ time waits for no man’! Use it wisely. Use it well.
Love & Blessings,
Dear Black Brethren,
As we fight for the cause Black Lives Matter, let’s also remember to truly love our black brethren.
It’s high time to stop putting each other down because one is succeeding…
To stop framing one because you want their job…
To stop bad-mouthing others because they are progressing…
To stop hating your fellow brethren out of jealousy and envy…
To stop tearing down the one who is striving so hard to climb higher…
To stop using diabolical means to destroy others for no obvious reason…
Let’s truly love ourselves because our Black Lives Matter!
Love & Blessings,
Nations are mourning, cities on lockdown, people running helter skelter on panic-mode and in hopes of survival, dead bodies laid in hospitals, churches and mortuaries. Simply put, life as it was is no longer the same.
The emergence of the corona virus, also known as COVID-19 has severely impacted not just the health of of hundreds of thousands, but the economy, the educational system and more.
Amidst all these, it is so easy to become wrapped up in fear, anxiety and depression. But, if you’re reading this, I want to encourage you to fear not, for Emmanuel is still with us. His grace is extended to us everyday and He will continually shield us. Even though we will have tribulations and troubles in this world, we must take heart knowing that He has overcome the world (John 16.33).
Just as the angel of death passed through the land of Egypt and struck down the firstborn of every household but spared homes that been marked with blood, so shall this plague pass over our homes. Believe! Be still and know that He is God. Even in times of trouble, He is still God with us!
Love and Blessings,
Envy is an evil disease. When you see your neighbour prospering, embrace their success. Before they arrived at their current destination, they perhaps had to make unimaginable sacrifices. They probably cried a million unknown tears. They even may have had scars embedded within their soul on the course of the journey. You just may never know the cost of their success. So, rather than envying that individual, why not rejoice with/for them? Why not trust God that He will bless you in the manner He seems fit?
Remember that safe people don’t take pleasure in envy. They are genuinely grateful for the good in another’s life in spite of it all!
If the person around you is making progress, be encouraged by their success. Use their story as a driving force and catapult to achieving your own goals.
PS: Safe People by Psychologists Drs Cloud & Townsend is a must read.
‘… And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!’ So God granted him what he requested. (1 Chronicles 4:10 NKJV).
Increase,bless,these words signify that Jabez was in a much smaller place and desired to breakforth into something greater. He called out to God from His small place for a change. This prayer reminds me that God can enlarge your small place. He can enlarge, increase and make big whatever you commit into his hands. It does not really matter how or where you start from. As long as you are bold enough to cry out in a loud roar and ask for change, He’ll hear you.
Jabez was despised by his own mother who should have been his source of comfort. He however did not relent, but pressed on and called out for change.
As we are at the dawn of another year, wherever you find yourself now, I want you to cry, scream for increase, enlargement and then see how God will make all things beautiful in his time.
Love, Blessings and a Beautiful 2020 2020
PS: Before I go into my reason for writing, I just want to thank God for you and I! God has kept us to the end of 2019 and is ushering us into 2020′ I am so grateful
Life is not just about receiving and receiving.It is also about giving. Whatever type of relationship you have with the next person ,it is important to not only be a taker,but a giver as well. That is what the principle of love is based on.
Be a giver . And when I speak about giving, it’s not just about giving financially. There are so many other ways you can genuinely give without spending a penny. You can give your care,time,service,skill ,your listening ear or even simply a hug or a shoulder to lean on. All of these are amazing ways you can give!
Today ,be determined to be a friend that gives and not only waits to be given. People will get fed up and run away from you if all you are is a taker!
Love and Blessings,
