On my way to work, I am grateful for another opportunity to add value to people around me and the world indirectly. There are so many reasons to be thankful today.
In the past I have tried to fathom God’s ways but all to no avail. For His ways are not our ways, hence I will be right to say that Christ came for all.
No matter the label the world has given you, the accusations and prejudice. Christ is ready and willing to take our burden and not just make it light but give us a permanent peace that the world cannot afford.
It is not surprising that even in death, He pardoned a thief (possibly a murderer) and promised him equal share with the father in heaven.
Our multitude of crime, sin and wickedness cannot stop God’s love for mankind BUT be rest assured that you ask for his forgiveness and turn from your ways.
At the end of the day, our first and only purpose in life is to serve God and walk in his ways – for which every other thing shall and will be added unto us.
The struggle is always on, we’ve all done things we are not proud of. But we chose to move on and live forever young in someone’s heart through our legacy.
What makes living difficult and existing normal to some of us is the simple act of selflessness or selfishness. The very one we allow bears its fruits in us.
Don’t be proud in sin, we can be better than we were yesterday. Giving in to your sinful desires and accepting it as who you are, will not reduce God’s standard to make heaven.
We have to be stronger and believe in possibilities.
In current times, the world has witnessed series of skills brought forth from people of different race, ethnicity and backgrounds, making the world a better place full of life and possibilities.
Skill depending on an individual can be an edge over others, and most times it is the common denominator for all entrepreneurs.
When you are Skillful, you’ve learnt something instrumental to your present and future, that which cannot be taken away from you. It is absolutely different from talent or gift, is something that we become master of.
With so many competitions from education to career, it is expedient that you get skilled at something and the goodnews is that age is not a determining factor to learn a new skill.
First of all it is very important that you don’t expect anything whatsoever from anybody. Yes!
You only have to keep an open HANDS, if and when you are given anything and REMAIN GRATEFUL.
I have met people who keeps complaining about how bitter they are towards someone who failed to fulfill their promise and the keyword/statement has always been “why will someone promise you something when they know they wouldn’t see it through” among others.
But then we forget that the same person who failed on his or her promise firstly, has the willingness to give, secondly, is not giving because he/she wants someone in return, thirdly, might have had some setbacks which you would have know if you cared enough to check on them instead of waiting to excel through someone’s sweat.
When people don’t come through with their promise, it is not a yardstick to measure their goodness, being a Christian (like most people thinks this days), or even unfriend them rather is the time to come closer to find out about his or her welfare – life is just so unpredictable.
We handle disappointment by:
1. Always be prepared for the worst.
2. Create time to check on your helper/sponsor/assistant.
3. Build on your relationship with the person.
4. Be happy for their concern even though it didn’t work out.
5. Then stop blaming yourself for things not working out.
6. Remain positive.
I used to struggle with lack of confidence, not being able to talk and handle situations.
For the longest time I can remember, It was so embarrassing until I started studying the word of God, fellowshiping with different people who shared their own challenges.
In no little time, I began to share my own story and channeling my all to God. It became evident that casting my burden to God will make it light and my success will come at ease.
What sustained my growth wasn’t just the fellowship I attended or the people I met there but my personal relationship with God. Understanding his will for me, made my mouth his mouthpiece.
Are you struggling with something that you feel no one can understand? God can and is ready to direct you!
All you have to do is acknowledge that you need help, ask for him to come into your life and then allow him to rule over your life, House, career, relationship and future.
Wow, is already July and we made it. So many lives have gone and some might not see the end of this year.
Knowing this still we are forever grateful to God for his mercies and grace thus far, the future is in his hands and our hard work is paramount.
Be fruitful still even when there are many discouraging factors around you.
Be fruitful and live your God given life.
Be fruitful because there is none on earth with such your personality and gifts.
Be fruitful still because God reigns in majesty and power.
Be fruitful and worry not about what you shall eat and wear.
Be fruitful at your place of work, showing others the christ like attitude.
Be fruitful and remain steadfast in your dedication to his business.
Win a soul through your words and action, you can choose your reaction to every action because you know better.
I believe this message is for someone who is going through the worst situation no one can imagine.

When we want something, we always feel the need to go the extra mile and that’s okay. But we forget that with good relationship with others, the extra effort will put in search for our desires wouldn’t be necessary.
Now let me explain, in sharing our life’s journey with others and valuing their friendship, we become family to each other that anybody’s problems is everybody’s problem. Is that simple.
The question then is: are you willing to stay in a relationship with others in good times and in bad?
Will you be true to someone without expecting anything in return. Thats love – selfless attitude towards others.
Be willing to live life even when the risks seems too much.
Be willing to give people second chance.
Be willing to forgive yourself and move on.
Be willing to learn new things and stand corrected when you are wrong.
Be willing to see beyond others fault.
Be willing to love selflessly.
