Hey guys, how was your sunday…who did you dedicate this day to… As for me, It was dedicated to the Father of fathers…yorubas call Him “baba t’oju baba lo”….eletilukara bi ajere…eledumare,arugbojo,adakedajo,awamaridi,awimayehun..aki kiitan… So much to say about Him
Well that’s whom I dedicate everyoda day to…buh this is special. how? I lay down all the mess I went through during the prev.week & the ones am scared of going through in d coming week & then He gives me a strong message,word,instruction that carries me on. I advice you to try nt to joke wiv your sundays whreva u find yourself (in church or @ home).
I got something today & I wanna share it wiv u in very short series…so they can absorbed properly… Slow n steady_________
Its about the Holy Spirit & My conscience… Ever wondered their differences n how they operate in you.. Let’s take a look @ what they are for these series

* The Holyspirit reps the presence,voice & power of God in you as an Heir of the father. My conscience reps the humanity in me!
How? You’ll notice when you wanna criticise bokoharam bombers, the man that raped his daughter n oda acts as such…you’ll most likely say they behaved INHUMAN or u’ll say “they don’t have conscience”. Well,the thing is these people probably had conscience buh its either dead,contaminated,polluted,”animalistic” or evil for reasons best known to them. Now this is where the HolySpirit comes in. Now the Holyspirit is the voice and presence of God in your life dat makes realise the state of ur conscience n life…makes you aware of the weakness n darkness in ur life n then helps and directs you to fight it by reminding n teaching you all things pertaining to life n godliness. In other words the HOLY SPRIT FINE-TUNES your conscience.. The thing is, HE can only do this if and only if you choose to let HIM do it.
Most of us…heirs of the Father so called…in one little way or the other try to fine-tune the Holyspirit by using our conscience that we have manipulated… Buh it doesn’t work n will never work that way… Bible says He remains Faithful to Himself, He can’t deny Himself!
Simply put, your conscience only makes you aware of what is inhuman and evil…every human created by God has a conscience…n so its the devils target. The moment you give access to your conscience…he’ll keep giving you nonsense wrapped in gold n u won’t even realise it..until you ENCOUNTER the one who originally moulded YoUR CoNSCIENCE so that He can put it bck in shape Thru the HolySpirit…remember ROM8:11!
Alright that’s all for now, let me have your views!!…

Coming soon…” The HolySpirit is like an inserted memory card of God while your conscience is like an inbuilt memory from God! Every phone comes an inbuilt memory but not every phone comes with a memory card” think about it….

He died on the cross for you and i CRUCIFIXION
On the third day,he rose RESURRECTION
He gave me a new life am so brand new RECREATION
On the cross he said it is finished CONCLUSION

Hey guys! Been a long while…yeah right! Well….this is another reflection of a program I attended….” Discovery for women” *make over* of which tara durotoye (house of tara), Ibukunoluwa Awosika, Yetunde Bernard, Olajumoke Olayera, Mrs koiki Laide (greensprings school), General manager of Chevron C.E.O ‘His majesty kitchen’, and the likes of them were in attendance…. “Every write-up I publish is a reflection of what have experienced or observed”
According to me! There are two set of people in the world: those that make the COMPLAINTS! and those that make the CHANGES!
If there was no problem in the perfect world God created, there won’t be any need for Christ to come over the way He did. But He has come n will still come again because He found a problem He needed to solve. He said He hasn’t come for the saved but for the lost sheep of Israel.
How did He go about solving? He started with the low-lives, the fisher men, the weak, and the nobodies. He taught them better ways of living life and showed them the brighter side of life..
What stops us from doing that in our own little way. Take Yetunde Bernard an image consultant for example; she made me understand that at a point in her life she realised there are a whole lot of things people were not getting right. These people were beginning to make it a norm like a tradition, a lifestyle..which is definitely not the G-lifestyle(GOD). So she decided to express reality….to bring light into the darkness that people were begining to take as light….she went into image consulting…teaching people the right way to dress, to eat, to talk, to play, to socialise, public behaviours and to live life better.. And now she’s been making waves, working internationally and nationally. Making a better life for herself and for the world in her own little way
Mrs. Ibukun Awosika (CEO) Sokoa Nigeria Ltd made me understand that, every single problem in this problem filled world we talk about is an avenue or opportunity for manifestation! An opportunity for discovery. The bible already made us understand, we are in the last days, these problems will keep arising but we must keep manifesting and overcoming. What does that mean to you. More problems will arise as well as more opportunities for the manifestation of the sons of God(us).
Problems come as a result of someone else’s failure to do certain things or perform certain responsibilities. Solutions come as a result of someone’s ability to be efficient and effective, responsible and active. The thing is the more people fail to perform their little responsiblities the more the problem arises until it becomes an issue that the same people begin to complain about…instead of making a change.
I’ll conclude with Philipians 4:8—- think on these things!! And a paraphrase of Micheal Jackson’s lyrics! ” If you really want that change, take a good look at the man in the mirror”… It begins with someone…that someone is you,me,and us

FIND A PROBLEM!

Don’t make a complaint, make a change. If there was no problem in the world God created, there won’t be any need for Jesus to come down n die right? But He came because He found a problem He needed to solve. That’s why He said He hasn’t come for the saved, but for the lost sheep of Isreal.
Jesus was so full of God’s glory, He had to manifest. When He came down, He encountered series of problems especially with those that He came for. Another avenue to manifest Gods glory. He began to make a change instead of making complaints of ‘nobody to work with’. How did He do that? By impacting n How did He impact? He started with the ‘low-lives’,’fishermen’,’the weak’,’the sick’,’the nobodies’. How did He start with them? He made them realize that there are better ways of doing things, n there are better ways viewing things.
Now,what stops us from doing the same? Yewande Bernard an image consultant made me understand that at some point she discovered there are somethings people were not just getting right and these people r beginning to make it a norm, a lifestyle which is definitely not the GODlifestyle. So she CHOSE to express reality, to eradicate that DARKNESS that people were beginning to take as LIGHT. She went into image consulting…rebranding humans to suite the G-lifestyle, n today she’s fufilling purpose. SHE simply found a PROBlEM n then chose to make a CHANGE.
The thing with most of us is that we’ve identified these problems, we’ve found them but we are either scared of or resistant to change!…..
To be continued….

Gone are the days when how much you are covered up depicted how fashionable you were, fashion then, was about what you were wearing, now, fashion is about what you are NOT wearing. 

So, my lens today will be on the thongs, bum shorts, and on all skirts worn above the thighs. Now, I’ve got your attention.

First, I’d like to acknowledge the 21st century music video producers for helping us with free porn. I mean, we don’t have to be ashamed about it because the highly stringent music regulators keep giving you awards for your ludicrous achievements in making guys horny and for dulling the minds of young girls. They are more concerned about their music sales than the effect these pictures have on the mind of young ones, even adults. Now, I think, the age restriction thing is a bit overrated, I think the restriction should now be on MENTAL HEALTH basis. Seriously, the occurence of rape has more than tripled over the past couple of years and it’s what people’s minds are being exposed to.

The main fact is, Porn sells, get a good sound, with some vulgar content and put some almost naked girls in it and soon you’ll be signing recording deals and invited to shows. It is an irony that although Nigerians are seemingly very religious, porn videos sit comfortably with their holy books in their bags. The fear is that many of the consumers of the pornographic materials are not aware of the inherent danger.

Olamide’s ‘Eni duro’ had us infected with love at first sight, but three more hit songs down the road, left me wondering what his intentions really were. His “Badoo” image brings out the “porn” in him in “Durosoke” and his fans go wild after each video. Don’t even get me started on Tonto Dikeh’s “Get high” music video, it felt like a video on mermaid pornography.

What we lack in the music industry is that of a model for the teen pop audience, for instance, Chidinma’s “Kedike”, depicts the typical ‘I have a crush on you syndrome’ among teens. The music industry in Nigeria is going on the pornographic music train and leaving teen pop culture to die slowly. Nothing is appealing and safe to watch anymore. This situation calls for an intervention and my suggestion will be ‘All or nothing’, yes, give us all or nothing at all, as the only way to create an antivirus is to introduce a virus, it’s either we let our minds feast on the obscene images until it becomes normal to us or it’s completely banned from the mind’s inner recesses.

All the same, I’ll leave you with this thought, ‘your life is a perfect picture of what your thoughts have been’, so think right and live right.

the PROVERBS 31 CHiC by Chinedum

Posted: September 27, 2013 in Uncategorized

Hi guyz! This goes to everyone male or female…chic or guy…it was written by a friend and I enjoyed it…so I decided to share it with you…. Have fun

http://chineduwrites.wordpress.com/wp-comments-post.php

Who can find a Proverbs 31 chic for her price is far more than rubies and material things, different from the other girls that call themselves bitches,she knows the word and practice what it teaches. When other girls are busy cat walking she is taking steps in the right direction ordered by the lord
Early in the morning when she wakes she goes on her knees quietly talking to her father in sincerity and on the road when she walks she knows how to rock her heels nicely .The words that describe her are beautiful,graceful,charming,angelic,pretty and elegant and sexy is not one of them.
She lives by the truth in the word of God and doesn’t fall for the lies of the media and playboys because she is not a toy she knows she is the daughter of the most high .
She strives to be like the ladies in the bible and not the ones she sees in the music videos and on the cover of playboy magazine, she carries herself with dignity, panache,self respect and dresses modestly like a princess because her father is the King of kings
She is filled with the joy of the lord that explains the charming smile always on her face, she loves to go out on evangelism and preach because she knows there are souls she has to reach .Her heart is not made of glass its unbreakable because she has hidden it in God her father so any guy that wants to get her has to get to God to find her.
She is wonderfully and fearfully made sculpted by the creator of heaven and from the rib of her Adam .To her, true beauty is spiritual that’s why she doesn’t put her trust in makeup she knows the stuff she is made of….

Yaay! I definitely know the stuff made of… And am proud to be a CHIC!

What does that statement mean?

A person who says, “I love you, but I’m not IN LOVE with you,” is making a distinction between 2 different feelings. But NEITHER of those feelings are love!

When a person says, “I love you, but I’m not IN LOVE with you,” they’re saying that I CARE about you but I’m not EXCITED about you.

CARING about someone is a good thing. It’s reflective of CONCERN. But it’s different than love. I care about the starving children in Africa, but I don’t love them.

Being EXCITED about someone is also a good thing. But it’s different than love. I might be excited to have a relationship with the President of the United States or a Hollywood star, but that doesn’t mean I love them.

While someone who says, “I love you, but I’m not IN LOVE with you” seems to be making a distinction between “different loves;” in fact, they are expressing their confusion about what love really is. And that’s why they’re having marital problems and maybe even an affair (because who are they IN LOVE with?).

Love is something we articulate in the vocabulary of ACTION. Love is a verb. It’s not a feeling you get from another PERSON; it’s an experience you receive as a result of DEEDS YOU DO for another person.

And those deeds are not a secret. In other words, love is NOT a mystery! There are specific things you can do with your spouse to solve your problems and build love in your marriage. Just as there are physical laws of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships. Just as the right diet and exercise program makes you physically stronger, certain habits in your relationship WILL make your marriage stronger. It’s a direct cause and effect. If you know and apply the laws, the results are predictable…you can “make” love.
someone will say to me, “I love my spouse, but I’m not IN LOVE with my spouse.”

My immediate response is to ask, “Can you list for me 5 ways in the last week that you’ve DEMONSTRATED your love for your spouse?”
Then I’ll hear grunts, partial statements, and gasps for breath, but none of what I hear ever passes for an answer to my question.

“I love you, but I’m not IN LOVE with you” is a cop out. It basically means that I have no clue how to make a relationship last LONG-TERM so I’m exiting to get high from another short-term romance. But whoever they’re IN LOVE with now will also eventually hear, “I love you, but I’m not IN LOVE with you.”

JUST KEEP BREATHING

Posted: September 21, 2013 in Uncategorized

This goes to everyone anywhere that has gone through or is going through series of hardship,disappointment,hatred and rejection. Just keep breathing….hang on

No matter what the road has been like
No matter what the journey has been like
There is a great man that keeps saying
“Come to me,when you are weary
I’ll give you hope, when you are hurting
I’ll give you rest from your burden”
How much have you gone through?
All your trust deceived you
All your love hated you
All your hope gave up on you
And your conclusion is to let go
Let me remind you
This great man went through even worse for you
&because of you HE chose not to let go
If only you can hang on & keep breathing
Stop feeling forsaken
Stop feeling forgotten
HE said “…a mother might forget her sucking child, but I will never forget thee…”
Finding it hard to keep THE RULES OF LIFE
He has made it easy by laying down HIS LIFE
The one thing you have to do
Is hang on to that Life He has given you
& keep breathing!!!
Those who loved you hate you
Probably because the reason they loved you has expired
But HE loves you unconditionally no matter what transpires
Those you trusted deceived you
Probably because they don’t even trust theirself…
Those who gave up on you, at one point in their life also gave up on theirself
But there is one person you can always trust
One person that will never give up on you
One person that has promised to be loving & faithful
Even when you don’t give Him enough reason to be
If you need a shelter,HE is a strong tower
If you don’t know where to start from, He is the author and the finisher, the Alpha & omega
If you’ve got battles, HE is the mighty warrior
If the doctors have said NO, He is the Healer
If your father is no more, HE is an everlasting father
If you are in any kinda bondage, He is the Deliverer
If your life has been more or less *war-like*…He is the Prince of Peace
Having a boring and dry kinda life, he is the livingwater
What more can you ask for….. HE IS CHRIST JESUS!!!

If September means “seven” why is it the ninth month? Also, why is it ???lucky seven????

We take the predictability of the calendar for granted. But we may have felt differently if we were living under the rule of Julius Caesar.

September was the seventh month of the old Roman calendar. In this calendar, the year began in March. But the Julian calendar??reform shifted the start of new year back two months to where it is now: January 1.

This change made September in the new calendar the ninth month and one of only four Gregorian months with 30 days.

The name of the month is derived from septem, which is Latin for seven. It has long been regarded as a number of perfection, luck, and wonder. (Think: seven days of creation.)

We commonly refer to being in a state of everyday bliss as being in seventh heaven. The expression has been used figuratively since the early 1800s. It refers to ???the dwelling place of God in the highest of the seven concentric spheres that surround the earth.??? Both Muslims and??Cabbalistic Jews believed in this system.

The number seven shows up repeatedly in other topics relating to the heavens. The Seven Sisters are the number of Atlas??? daughters in the Pleiades. Also, there are only seven stellar objects in the solar system that are visible from Earth with the naked eye.

Only one of the seven wonders of the ancient world is still in existence. Do you know what it is?

BE GLAD YOUR NOSE IS ON YOUR FACE

Posted: September 8, 2013 in Uncategorized

y’all should check this out!!!

Be Glad Your Nose Is on Your Face
BY JACK PRELUTSKY

Be glad your nose is on your face,
not pasted on some other place,
for if it were where it is not,
you might dislike your nose a lot.

Imagine if your precious nose
were sandwiched in between your toes,
that clearly would not be a treat,
for you’d be forced to smell your feet.

Your nose would be a source of dread
were it attached atop your head,
it soon would drive you to despair,
forever tickled by your hair.

Within your ear, your nose would be
an absolute catastrophe,
for when you were obliged to sneeze,
your brain would rattle from the breeze.

Your nose, instead, through thick and thin,
remains between your eyes and chin,
not pasted on some other place—
be glad your nose is on your face!

We have been called outta darkness
Into an untold brightness
But some are lost due to mere vagueness
Others are due to perverseness
Some think they don’t have purpose
Some already sold out their purpose
Others don’t understand their purpose
But you see your purpose is your function
And when you don’t know your function
You will most definitely malfunction
So long you are part HIS creation
You’ve got a function
Although some have chosen to recreate themselves into a dysfunction
Its their decision
That is to say…your destiny is your decision
Psalm106:40-43(MSG) gives a better explanation
I think we are beginning to treat Psalm106:44-46 with silliness(levity)
Forgetting (Deu4:23-24) that God is not to be trifled with
This is the reason
Many have made decisions in the wilderness
Wasting away without consciousness
Forgetting that we can’t “fake” Holiness
And we cant “form” righteousness
We can only deceive ourselves
Note- righteousness is all about knowing & believing the rules
And holiness is about abiding by the rules
This is not a matter of undergoing any deliverance session
Its about making a reasonable selection
The wilderness-wasteland-dryland
Or the city-metropolis-wetland
Today, whatever or whoever we are
is a make-up of the decisions we’ve made so far
The destiny in the wilderness
Is a life full of choices made outta carelessness
Made outta unruliness
Made outta weakness
& outta unwillingness to know,believe,and abide by the rules
We are Gods production
& Every product comes with manuals of instruction&directions on how to function
When the instructions are ignored or manipulated,the result is a malfunction
The result is a destiny in the wilderness but you know what….
Even in the wilderness,His WORD still covers you…(Isaiah42:16 ; 40:1-8)…

“I FORGIVE YOU”

Posted: September 6, 2013 in Uncategorized

The closer you are to someone, the more likely
you are to step on their toes. And being close
to someone certainly puts you in close quarters.
So the chances are good that you and that person
have sore feet.lol

The point is
that it’s NORMAL for you and that person to err
and for those “misses” to cause hurt…sometimes
serious hurt.

Did anyone hurt you? Have you made mistakes
that hurt your anyone?

Except in the case of physical abuse, you can
“move on” from anything. In fact, your relationship with that person
can end up even BETTER!

I know…you’re probably thinking, “Better? How
could it be better than before we screwed up?”

It CAN be better, but you have to do one thing
first. You have to forgive.

What does it REALLY mean to forgive?

Many people will say, “I forgive you,” but
continue to harbor anger in their heart. Some
people say the words, but it’s obvious from their
actions that nothing’s changed.

Other people will say “I forgive you” but what
they really mean is, “I don’t want to talk about
this. I can’t deal with this. I’m turning you
off.” And so the 3 magic words come out and form
a wall that shuts out their spouse. True, they’re
not angry, but that’s because they’ve shut down
all emotion and refuse to reconnect.

Saying “I forgive you” is an entirely different
ball game than truly forgiving.

Look carefully at the word “forgive.” It tells
you what it means. “For-Give”…in other words, to
GIVE as you did beFORE.

That’s true forgiveness. When you GIVE of
yourself like you did beFORE you were hurt, then
you know you’ve forgiven. When you stand as close
to someone as you stood the day your feet got
stepped on…that’s forgiveness.

That’s not easy to do. But it is possible. You
can forgive move on.

And once you forgive, you’ll see that your
relationship with that person will be BETTER than it was before.
You’ll be happy that the mistake was made (in a
strange way) because you’ll realize that you
would never have achieved the love you finally
did without that mistake as your catalyst.

Did you know that when a broken bone heals it’s
stronger than it was before it was broken? You
too can be STRONGER than before things broke down
between you and anyone

But you have to know how to reconcile. You have
to know how to get to a place of sincere
forgiveness.

living life

The obstacles of life are intended to make us better not bitter
Whatever you want to accomplish in life requires persistence
Your future can’t be when it is full of the past
So live your life as an exclamation not an explanation
You can’t become great by imitation
Cause it is limitation
Don’t be a copy of something
Make your own expression
Think unthinkable thoughts
See where no one is looking
Take actions before its obvious…… Iyanu iseyemi

TODAYs MESSAGE- SELF DISCIPLINE

Posted: September 1, 2013 in Uncategorized

TODAYS MESSAGE: SELF DISCIPLINE

Self discipline is doing something you don’t won’t to do…when you don’t want to do it for the right reasons. for instance you don’t want to go for a lecture when there is a football match or a TV show…but self discipline kicks in when you decided to go & forfeit whatever needs to be forfeited.
Someone once said “I really didn’t feel like going to school but I didn’t want my mum bugging me and being ashamed of me…so I rebelled against my own will by doing something I don’t want to do when I didn’t want to do it
Self discipline is the power to stick to the right decisions and follow them through. It’s the power to overcome laziness,addictions of any kind and procrastination.
Self discipline is not being strict or having a restrictive lifestyle….in fact most of the strict people I know lack self-discipline. Self discipline is being persevere, the ability not to give up despite the failures and setbacks.
Self discipline boost your self confidence and self esteem. Most people known to have low self esteem lack self discipline.
Self discipline is a way of life…..live it!!!

A NEW BREED (the ORIGINALS)

Posted: August 31, 2013 in Uncategorized

Sometimes I wonder what it really means to be new. The book of wisdom says in 1 corinthians5:17 makes us understand that being new is being in Christ. Cause when you are in christ you no longer operate as an human being ,you begin to operate as a spiritual being full of the spirit of truth, strange to the WORLD and filled with the WORD.
You begin to operate as a new citizen, in a new economy,in a new country free from the unnecessary hardship the world has placed on you. As a new creature you are a special person before God.
Practically,new things are always distinguished. You can always tell when a girl is on a new hairdo same goes for a new dress& a new shoe , not just by looking @ hair but also the way she makes it so noticeable….unlike an old hairdo that she will make sure she covers with something. Put urself in the position of a new hairdo and Christ as the girl…. Christ has you and he wants you to manifest…dats y he made it clear to us that ‘a city set on the hill can’t be hidden’
The only difference between you and a new dress,hairdo,or shoe is that a time will come when they will all become old and will need a replacement. But it not so for you that’s in Christ!!. If Jesus Christ is in you today…and He is the same yesterday, today and forever more(hebrews 13:8) then you if you become new today, it’s d same tomorrow and forever more!!
For those of us very conversant with season movies. You should have heard of “VAMPIRE DIARIES”. Yeah right. You should also know that vampire pass vampire. You should also know that there is a special breed of vampires called the ORIGINALS. Why are they called so… (Now just see yourself as vampire) So long they continue to feed on blood (ur source of life is the blood of Christ) they remain ever young. Infact, they don’t die no matter what…they always come back to life not even ‘vervain’ can kill them( Rom8:35-39 AMP) . The only way they can be killed is when a dagger is driven into their heart ( that dagger represent SIN/UNHOLINESS not being able to abide by the rules set by the Blood which is your source). It doesn’t end there o…the dagger also has to remain in their heart, cause the moment it is driven out….and they feed on blood…they become as new as ever…(The moment we let go of SIN, and we go back to our source ,John3:16 & 1corinthians5:17 happens)
We all should know that it irritates God to see daggers in our hearts…its just like a maize farmer coming to farm and finiding his maize feasting wiv d birds….
Give it a deep thought…make a decision today…to be new and remain new in christ… A friend once said…
A lot of ppl dnt understand that “righteousness” is knowing&believing the rules and “holiness” is abiding by the rules…. If it wasn’t possible to be righteous and holy…then God wouldn’t have asked us to…… You can only be more than a conqueror when Christ is involved…& when He is not you are less than a looser!
Finallly as Paul said.. “friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse”……..

MULTIPLY!!!

Posted: August 30, 2013 in Uncategorized

Multiplication is synonymous to increment
Now let’s look at these mathematically. A figure only increases when It is multiplied with other numbers than ‘0s’ and ‘1s’
Look at yourself as a figure.
Let’s take 3 as an example
3×3=9 (an increment of 6)
3×1=3 (no increment/stagnancy)
3×0=0 (a decrease to nothing)
Most of us have decided to settle down and multiply with ‘1s’ and ‘0s’.
We say we are christians but we are actually compromised and lukewarm.
We are like farmers sowing seed among thorns; the seed grows but is choked up…and reduced to litlle or nothing.
We are comfortable with being lukewarm..making God so sad and dissappointed
We are supposed to be Christ-like. Christ was a reflection of Gods glory and an expression of the person and image of God. We should also be the reflection of the glory of Christ and the expression of His image.
We should quit moving with ‘0s’ n ‘1’ because with them, multiplication is meaningless, ineffective, it’s like pouring water into a basket.
1s n 0s could be cheating, pride, laziness, waywardness, indiscipline, disobedience, deceit, and a host of others we both know….they all strangle our connection with our creator

Be fruitful and multiply, mortify your deed, follow peace with all men and holiness without which no man can see God.
Mix up with ‘figures’ that would make you mature and increase in christ.
As paul said…phil 4:8

Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.

teen agers

Posted: August 30, 2013 in Uncategorized

The Energetic Empowered Natural Age-group God is Ever Ready to Save.

Teenagers, probably more than any other age group, are a study in contradictions. While its natural for adults to stereotype them in different ways (lazy,smart,energetic, or disrespectful, just to name but a few) , teens as a segment of the overall population are also very different.
Someone was said *the teenage age is the most peculiar and unstable age*
The question most parents ask is “are today’s teenagers spiritual or unspritual”. There is obviously not an easy answer. In fact, the answers one would get would be as varied as the number of people asked
Many sources of information paint a picture of teenagers as a whole being deeply religious and having integrated the christian faith into the fabric of their lifestyles. You have heard such events as:
– true love waits
– see me at the pole
– christian clubs in schools and other signs of either revival or spiritual awakening among them
A nationwide survey of teenagers from all works of life by a well known “christian sociologist , titled the THE THIRD MILLENIUM TEENS”, suggest that the christian faith is pretty much a subjective area in the lives of most teenagers. It is simply one of the many parts of life that blend into the total experience of adolescence. Unfortunately, neither teenage behaviour nor beliefs at least according to the surveys report, support the notion that this age group as a whole is deeply spiritual or truly committed to the christian faith
What next? The need to be connected to the source that matters, source that produces good life “the living water”
Psalm1vs3- and he/she shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his/her fruit in his seasons; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he doeth shall prosper”. This spelt out the four blessings of the righteous teens not the wicked teen.
-The righteous – like the tree planted, cultivated, and well watered; not like one growing wild in the field
– The wicked- like the chaff that blows away and scorn perishes
The emphasis is on teens who live to fufil the purpose in life for which God created him/her. Rev4:11 God created us all for His pleasure.
A righteous teen will:
1. Delights in the word of God (ps119:9)
2. Medidates in it day and night (josh 1:8)
3. Consecrates to obey it – seperate from the world and join unto God
4. Makes it his rule of life and conduct (Josh 1:22-27)
5. Makes it his standard of faith and religion (2 tim 3:16-173
6. Reads it to gain knowledge and wisdom ( rev1:3, eph5:4)
7. Feeds on it to grow spiritually ( 1pet2:1-3 ; rom10:17)

see who mocked GOD

Posted: August 30, 2013 in Uncategorized

SEE WHO MOCKED GOD:

John Lennon (Singer):

Some years ago, during his interview with an American Magazine, he said:
‘Christianity will end, it will disappear.
I do not have to argue about that.. I am certain.
Jesus was ok, but his subjects were too simple, today we are more famous than Him’ (1966).

Lennon, after saying that the Beatles were more famous than Jesus Christ, was shot six times.

Tancredo Neves (President of Brazil ):

During the Presidential campaign, he said if he got 500,000 votes from his party, not even God would remove him from Presidency.

Sure he got the votes, but he got sick a day before his inauguration as President and he died.

Cazuza (Bi-sexual Brazilian composer, singer and poet):

During A show in Canecio ( Rio de Janeiro ),
while smoking his cigarette, he puffed out some smoke into the air and said:
‘God, that’s for you.’

He died at the age of 32 of LUNG CANCER in a horrible manner.

The man who built the Titanic

After the construction of the Cruise Ship, Titanic, a reporter asked him how safe the Titanic would be.

With an ironic tone he said:
‘Not even God can sink it’

The result: I think you all know what happened to the Titanic

Marilyn Monroe (Actress)

She was visited by Billy Graham during a presentation of a show.

He said the Spirit of God had sent him to preach to her.
After hearing what the Preacher had to say, she said: ‘I don’t need your Jesus’.
A week later, she was found dead in her apartment

Bon Scott (Singer)

The ex-vocalist of the AC/DC. On one of his 1979 songs he sang:
‘Don’t stop me; I’m going down all the way, down the highway to hell’.

On the 19th of February 1980, Bon Scott was found dead, he had been choked by his own vomit.

Campinas (IN 2005)

In Campinas , Brazil, a group of friends, drunk, went to pick up a friend…..

The mother accompanied her to the car and was so worried about the drunkenness of her friends and she said to the daughter holding her hand, who was already seated in the car:

‘My Daughter, Go With God And May He Protect You.’
She responded: ‘Only If He (God) Travels In The Trunk, ‘Cause Inside Here…..It’s Already Full ‘

Hours later, news came that they had been involved in a fatal accident, everyone had died.
The car could not be recognized what type of car it had been, but surprisingly, the trunk was intact.
The police said there was no way the trunk could have remained intact.
To their surprise, inside the trunk was a crate of eggs, none was broken

Christine Hewitt (Jamaican Journalist and entertainer) said the Bible (Word of God) was the worst book ever written.
In June 2006 she was found burnt beyond recognition in her motor vehicle.

Many more important people have forgotten that there is no other name that was given so much authority as the name of Jesus.

Many have died, but only Jesus died and rose again, and he is still alive….

OMO IGBO & MOMSI

Posted: August 29, 2013 in Uncategorized

“If. I ever, ever ,like ever see you with that guy
again, you can’t even imagine what I’ll do with
you, mstchewww…. Omode o mefo o n pe
lewe!”
The last phrase is proverb from where I come from meaning (
)
I just couldn’t stand it anymore, for crying out loud, what is wrong with ELVIS JOHNSON. My mom won’t just let me be. Have heard that last statement like a hundred and one times already! What’s with my mom and igbo guys.
The same thing with Henry,John,Rapheal and now Elvis. Is it my fault that I keep ending up with them. Don’t you think, she should leave me alone to make my own decision (and maybe my own mistakes too).

My mother . She is such a sweet woman, selfless personality and beautiful character. But you know there is this thing with mothers and the kinda protection they give their children, female children especially. My mom has three pretty girls more or less WOMEN. Even if she has little or no time for herself and her girls. She doesn’t joke with their relationship and emotional life. She doesn’t joke with them when it comes to MEN,GUYS,BOYS. Whenever she wants to refer to the male person that she is pleased with…she calls him MAN. In her words ” that man worked relentlessly and God was always on his side, he is a responsible man”
and then, when it comes to one that pisses her off, she’ll say ” deola u know you must stay clear of that guy, he is no good for you. He has no prospect”. My mom is such a character.
And then when it is one that is totally irresponsible to her…lol…I remember a scenerio… My friend came over…he was on *carrot jeans*, a body hug and then he was on a nice gold neck chain….in a nutshell he was looking so cool…full of swags (according to me tho)….and then while we were gisting…momsi walked in…gave him a head to toe look as he stood up to greet her “good evening ma”…and then my heart almost jumped out. But you know what, she just replied him..”Good evening” with a straight face…she sat down for a while…watched tv… And right there in my mind I was praying she wouldn’t ask further questions…like “what’s your name”..(Error) but den my prayers weren’t answered.
“What is your name” mom asked. And of course he said “Nonso”. And dat was it…she didn’t ask further questions. As soon as he left… The next question she asked was ” deola, isn’t dat one of those street boys”. ” Mummy, he is not a streetboy, he is a friend” I replied. N all she could say was “hunhmm k o!!”

I love the fact that I have a lovely mother who will not stop checking on him….buh I dnt like d fact that she is trying all she can to make sure I don’t end up with an IGBO GUY.
Just the other day, I was seeing a documentary, “the secret” and then a quote was mentioned- “what you resist will persist”…and then I thought of it….
I kinda agree with that..cause she keeps resisting them…and they keep persisting..
Adesewa, my cute lil sis wasn’t left out o. She is just 10yrs old. And she just got promoted to JSS2. Guess what? Right from when she was in pry 1…most of her classmates, I mean the ones she liked talking about to my mom & 1, had names like chigozie,chinedu,nnena, nnamdi,amaka,chidi….infact there was one of them, they always wait together 4 their mum 2 pick them up after school hours, his name was buchi.
My mom didn’t take things personal then…probably because she thought we weren’t that sensitive.. But now she wouldn’t allow such.
One evening, I got a bombshell from my lil sis, desewa. “Sister mi, I wanna discuss something with you” ….hmmm my mind went straight to the thoughts of her looking for trouble again in school with that her *razor blade tongue* and she is scared of going back to school tomorrow. That’s the discussion my sister will always bring to my table…as if I’m the 1 that sent her to run her mouth about in school. Anyways…it was a bombshell… My 10 going on 11 yrs old kid sis…already has a toaster…as in ” the boy is cute, and he keeps telling me he likes me a lot and wants me to be a special person to him” sister mi, iono wat 2 do o…wat do you think he is insinuating”
& I plainly told her, maybe he wants a relationship. Talking about dat, I remembered my mom & her iSsue with Igbo guys. And then I asked ” what’s d name of this boy sef?”
“His name is victor anyanwu” she replied.
Oopsy….my mom is probably gonna have a heart attack if she gets 2 know this. *anyanwu ke* now this is a bigger error!……….
To Be Continued.

THAT UGLY BEAUTY

Posted: August 29, 2013 in Uncategorized

At first sight
In the deep dark night
He was shinning so bright
His eyes, his lips, and then his height
Am crazy about the way he looks @ me
Those looks won’t just let me be
Right there, by his side, is where I wanna be
But something keeps preventing me
The problem is I have not been able to find out what it is
Once, I heard him talk about me
“She has an ugly beauty”
Hearing that, gave my heart a terrible injury
I wondered what kinda beauty can be ugly
I consulted my friends immediately
They made me understand that he hates my beauty
What!!! How can that be
I talked to my mom about it and she said
” That man is no good for you, so don’t even worry about it”
Really, that even got me more worried
In my curiousity, I stole his diary.
And den I stumbled on something
Once he died on d cross of calvary
Cause he was sorry 4 d sins of many
And so in order to call them into His glory
He gave out his life, so amazing!
Suddenly, I felt something like ice running thru my veins
It was like there was a sudden pause in my brain
My eyes were beginning to rain
The words in my mouth got drained
He caught me red-handed,
And then he said
“Relax, I know what you have read
I know exactly what’s going on in your head
You’ve been puzzled about what you heard
Your friends and mom, they claim to know me
They’ve heard a lot conflicting stories about me
They also heard me say things about them
But they didn’t care to know who I am to them
Probably to them, am just history
They know my name, but they don’t know my words neither do they know what it means
But you are different…you saw me in your darkness and you recognised me
You don’t know my name, but you recognised my words
When I say you’ve got an “ugly beauty”
It doesn’t mean you are ugly, neither does it mean you are pretty
It simply means you are lost in a journey though you have the maps
You have everything it takes to walk out of darkness, but you still can’t find your way out
Same goes 4 ur mum and friends
Anyway I am always available to answer your questions
To teach you how to make use of that map
To completely bring you out of that dark tunnel
Though you have tried getting close to me…and it seems like you are farther
It is because of the SINS…that you just can’t let go of
Those *sins* that you have given authority over your life…
Just rely on me…I can help you let go of all of them
And you’ll be closer than ever
That’s why I am called
The Horn of salvation
The author of salvation
The rock of offence
The sanctifier and healer
The Burden bearer
The resurrection & life
Light of life
Word of life
Bread of life
Prince of life
The Alpha and Omega
Now that you know my name
It is a Strong Tower
Make sure you are in it every hour”…… Christ Jesus speaking to every heart!!!

Well…DEJABOI calls this random writing, buh what I see in this is….an out-pour straight from a sincere and broken heart… Yeah right. It's not necessarily just a boy and girl thing, it could also apply in a way…to a mother and child..a sister and brother…. A friend and a friend…well…I read it and liked it. Y'all should check it out *smiles*.

We’re a quarter away from ice
This time, you hit me thrice.
It pays to just get drunk
Put the past in the trunk.

Take me to the other side
Flow away with the tide,

 Cos, baby,
If we ain’t friends anymore,
Then we better be nothing.

 It’s not that i’m obsessed,
I’m just trying to find happiness.
Cars,spas,keys and tees,
Flashy toys and fly boys,

But they can’t be you
 Sometimes you make me blue,
And then you make me feel cool.
I hate you so much, It’s TRUE!
That’s how I know I must love you too!
Your stuck on me just like a tatoo.

 Now, i’m here
Writing this lame lyrics
Hoping they would drown my fear
I would run to a cleric
But he would tell me the same thing
“Love is a gift and not a disease
Tell him he’s more than a fling
And tonight, your mind will be at ease.”

 So Tonight, i’m letting you know
I’m letting it show
Not caring if my heart breaks tomorrow.

 So now i’m here,
Writing this lame lyrics,
Running out of words to rhyme with
What my heart’s saying.
Its saying
I LOVE YOU.

Steve, a twelve-year-old boy with alcoholic parents, was about to be lost forever, by the U.S. education system. Remarkably, he could read, yet, in spite of his reading skills, Steve was failing. He had been failing since first grade, as he was passed on from grade to grade. Steve was a big boy, looking more like a teenager than a twelve year old, yet, Steve went unnoticed… until Miss White.

Miss White was a smiling, young, beautiful redhead, and Steve was in love! For the first time in his young life, he couldn’t take his eyes off his teacher; yet, still he failed. He never did his homework, and he was always in trouble with Miss White. His heart would break under her sharp words, and when he was punished for failing to turn in his homework, he felt just miserable! Still, he did not study.

In the middle of the first semester of school, the entire seventh grade was tested for basic skills. Steve hurried through his tests, and continued to dream of other things, as the day wore on. His heart was not in school, but in the woods, where he often escaped alone, trying to shut out the sights, sounds and smells of his alcoholic home. No one checked on him to see if he was safe. No one knew he was gone, because no one was sober enough to care. Oddly, Steve never missed a day of school.

One day, Miss White’s impatient voice broke into his daydreams.

“Steve!!” Startled, he turned to look at her.

“Pay attention!”

Steve locked his gaze on Miss White with adolescent adoration, as she began to go over the test results for the seventh grade.

“You all did pretty well,” she told the class, “except for one boy, and it breaks my heart to tell you this, but…” She hesitated, pinning Steve to his seat with a sharp stare, her eyes searching his face.

“…The smartest boy in the seventh grade is failing my class!”

She just stared at Steve, as the class spun around for a good look. Steve dropped his eyes and carefully examined his fingertips.

After that, it was war!! Steve still wouldn’t do his homework. Even as the punishments became more severe, he remained stubborn.

“Just try it! ONE WEEK!” He was unmoved.

“You’re smart enough! You’ll see a change!” Nothing fazed him.

“Give yourself a chance! Don’t give up on your life!” Nothing.

“Steve! Please! I care about you!”

Wow! Suddenly, Steve got it!! Someone cared about him? Someone, totally unattainable and perfect, CARED ABOUT HIM??!!”

Steve went home from school, thoughtful, that afternoon. Walking into the house, he took one look around. Both parents were passed out, in various stages of undress, and the stench was overpowering! He, quickly, gathered up his camping gear, a jar of peanut butter, a loaf of bread, a bottle of water, and this time…his schoolbooks. Grim faced and determined, he headed for the woods.

The following Monday he arrived at school on time, and he waited for Miss White to enter the classroom. She walked in, all sparkle and smiles! God, she was beautiful! He yearned for her smile to turn on him. It did not.

Miss White, immediately, gave a quiz on the weekend homework. Steve hurried through the test, and was the first to hand inhis paper. With a look of surprise, Miss White took his paper. Obviously puzzled, she began to look it over. Steve walked back to his desk, his heart pounding within his chest. As he sat down, he couldn’t resist another look at the lovely woman.

Miss White’s face was in total shock! She glanced up at Steve, then down, then up. Suddenly, her face broke into a radiant smile. The smartest boy in the seventh grade had just passed his first test!

From that moment nothing was the same for Steve. Life at home remained the same, but life still changed. He discovered that not only could he learn, but he was good at it! He discovered that he could understand and retain knowledge, and that he could translate the things he learned into his own life. Steve began to excel! And he continued this course throughout his school life.

After high-school Steve enlisted in the Navy, and he had a successful military career. During that time, he met the love of his life, he raised a family, and he graduated from college Magna Cum Laude. During his Naval career, he inspired many young people, who without him, might not have believed in themselves. Steve began a second career after the Navy, and he continues to inspire others, as an adjunct professor in a nearby college

Miss White left a great legacy. She saved one boy who has changed many lives. I know, because I am the love of his life.

You see, it’s simple, really. A change took place within the heart of one boy, all because of one teacher, who cared.

if i had my life to live over

Posted: August 13, 2013 in Uncategorized

if i had my life to live over
By Erma Bombeck — written after discovery of her terminal cancer

I would have talked less and listened more. I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained and the sofa faded.

I would have eaten the popcorn in the “GOOD” living room and worried much less about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the fireplace.

I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.

I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.

I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.

I would have sat on the lawn with my children and not worried about grass stains.

I would have cried and laughed less while watching television and more while watching life.

I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth would go into a holding pattern if I weren’t there for the day.

I would never have bought anything just because it was practical, wouldn’t show soil or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.

Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I’d have cherished every moment realizing that the wonderment growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.

When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, “Later, now go get washed up for dinner.” There would have been more “I love you’s” … more “I’m sorry’s” … but mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute … look at it and really see it … live it .. and never give it back.

THE FUTURE

Posted: August 8, 2013 in Uncategorized

the past has been threaded
for a long time.
The present,
we are still threading.
The future,
we all envisage.
Envisaging for a greater and better future.
But alas, the storm came
the ray of hope became shattered.
Will the future ever come?
Will the sun shine again?
I am the future of my generation,
so replied my teacher
few decades back.
Will the future ever come?
This is my over 20 years on this planet.
But the ray of hope,
i cannot see nor comprehend.
Among the youth,
i concluded, never will the future be handed over to them.
Selfishness, moral decadence, among others.
Among our parents.
Never!
But who can the future be handed over to.
I looked, i beheld, i thought,
but none.
But within me,
i dey laugh o.(Hmmm)

DEATH BEFORE DISHONOUR

Posted: August 7, 2013 in Uncategorized

…….I suppose I should begin my tale in the Andersonville museum. Andersonville was once a Civil War prison for Union soldiers called, at the time, Camp Sumter. Though open only a year, thousands of men met their tragic fate within the walls of the stockade. Now the area is a national park that greets visitors from miles around who come to hear the stories that can be told, see the sights that can be seen, and think of how life must have been for the men who died here.
My father is a volunteer at Andersonville, so I was there fairly often. This day was no different from the rest. I sat in the courtyard behind the museum and listened to the water falling from the beautifully positioned fountain; I felt calm and peaceful looking carefully at the stone statue that was part of the fountain. It had water trickling down through its hands and an expression of the purest gratefulness, as if the small amount of water in its palm were the greatest treasure the world could have offered.
The bright sun blinded me while the cold breeze of January tossed my hair and numbed my face. I walked in silence from the courtyard to the stockade and down the path that circled it. My first stop was to sit on the bench looking toward the few monuments that lay within the stockade. As I gazed, saddened at my surroundings, I had a peculiar feeling that I was being watched. I was sure I could here footfalls, but when I turned to seek their source, I found none. Finally, I decided to go to Providence Spring.
The story of the Spring was this: In August of 1864, during a time when one hundred men died daily, the prisoners witnessed a lightning bolt come down from the sky and hit the ground. There, where the bolt had struck, was a fresh water spring. A miracle, because they had little water that was not polluted in the Camp.
After a few moments at the Spring, I once again felt as if I were being watched. This time, when I looked about me, I heard my name being called. I saw a man standing upon the hill where a gate of the stockade had been rebuilt. He stood there, his eyes dead on mine. My first action was to walk toward the stranger, but as I made my way up the hill, he turned and fan inside the gate.
“Wait!” I called. I ran after him as a cat runs after a mouse. I finally made it to the wall and the gate where I had seen the man. I poked my head into the gate expecting to see whoever was calling me.
Nothing.
I gazed, open mouthed, at the completely empty space. But then I smiled to myself. I thought that perhaps it was one of the staff trying to scare my. I do not scare easily.
I returned, laughing, to the monument built around the Spring. It had been a long time since I had been able to just sit and absorb things there. I had always loved the Spring and the story behind it. It made me realize that God is performing miracles here and now, we just need to sit back and let ourselves find them.
The cry of a crow made me start. My heat beating fast, I glanced over my shoulder at the gate, my eyes turned slowly back to the shinning ripple of water. I screamed.
The liquid pouring out of the Spring and into the pool below was not the same as I had seen it seconds before. It was dark and thick, red as wine and staining the cement blocks upon which it streamed.
“What is it?” asked a voice. A hand fell upon my shoulder, making me jump up from my seat and stumbling about to see who had touched me. A man of about forty stood there, his face full of concern, his wife and daughter standing some feet behind him looking startled.
“The water…” I whispered.
“What about it?”
I looked back and saw, with a chill of dread that the water had again returned to its clear clean state. The blood was gone. The stones unstained.
“Nothing,” I said in a voice of forced calm, “Nothing, it was…my imagination.”
“Are you sure you’re ok?”
“I’m fine, thank you,” I told him hurriedly, and I walked down to the road where I stood, trembling.
I walked toward the side of the stockade where a corner had been rebuilt, along with a few of the tent-like shelters the prisoners had built to protect themselves, as best they could, from the elements. I took slow steps as a way to slow my heat, which had been beating as fast and hard as if I had experienced a heart attack. I tried to explain the water changing. Perhaps it really was my imagination. Perhaps it was a trick of the light. Perhaps I had dosed off and dreamed the whole thing. Each reason seemed more unlikely than the last, but there was no way I had seen what my mind thought I had seen.
My feet found the stockade wall long before they had expected to. I had been so lost in thought that I did not realize quite where I was going.
Once again I heard a soft voice calling my name. My heart began to pound again, my blood ran cold, and my body stiffened. The voice called again. It was coming from under one of the tents. I approached it silently, expecting nothing, as I saw before, but there was a man there, underneath the tin cloth.
“Don’t cross the Deadline,” he said. His voice echoed strangely. He looked afraid, deathly afraid of something behind me.
“What did you say?” I whispered.
“Don’t cross the Deadline,” he repeated, “He will shoot you.”
I turned around to see who the man was referring to, and saw someone perched on the Pigeon Roost where the guards stood over the prisoners in Camp Sumter. The man had a gun …pointing straight at me.
I heard the blast and was thrown off my feet. * * * * * *
I awoke in the cemetery. After a few heavy breaths I realized I was lying just in front of the New Jersey monument.
“Death before Dishonor,” hissed a voice behind me. It was the same voice that had called me in the stockade and warned me not to cross the Deadline. I slowly got to my feet to face this stranger. But the face I saw was not one I did not know, for now that I was close to him, I recognized him as Father Whelan, a priest who had come to the aid of the prisoners of Camp Sumter. He looked at he with every expression of kindness. His hands found mine and held them; his hands felt surprisingly warm and gentle. He smiled.
“Yes,” I said, “Death before Dishonor.”
With a final smile, and a small wink, he vanished once more into the realm of the dead.

the power of porn

Posted: August 7, 2013 in Uncategorized

My curiosity was peeking. My flesh was seeking. I was looking and searching for things that would pleasure me. Looking for things that my parents didn’t want me to see! I found that one website. I looked at it, and thought wow what a sight! I watched and slowly but surely got pulled in. I didn’t notice until I heard the pastor preach on that sin. I brushed it off, and got back on again. Then, I started to masturbate which is also a sin. I sat down, and watched a different version, not realizing that the spirit of perversion was already on me. The devil was watching and laughing as I was watching and gasping. When I tried to stop I ended up relapsing. I sat there and thought why is this so bad? I’m feeling good why would my mom not want me happy? It’s really just a trap that I couldn’t see. I failed to see the plans God had for me. I failed to realize all I could be, because I was wrapped up watching porn on my pc. I got on my knees to beg and plead, for God to have mercy on a porn addict like me. The thing everyone fails to see is the power of porn. Now that I think about it, it makes me mourn. The things I gave up to watch such filth, and every time I watched it again I felt a little less guilt. I watched it until it was in my daily routine. I was so into it, it felt like a dream I would never wake up from. That dream became a reality. Reality dawned on me, and I don’t want to burn for eternity. So I opened my eyes to see that God loves a porn addict like me. I know you’re thinking how can God still love you while you watched all the naked women and men. But, you fail to realize God wants us to love the person hate the sin. You also fail to realize in the end God will always win. And, where you are is not the end it is just another place to begin. But before you begin you must recognize that you have sinned you must realize that all the glory you put on porn must now go to Him. You must realize that God is your father and your friend. So when you sin there will be discipline. But when you fall He will be there to pick you up and dust you off again. Don’t let the devil play you like a violin. You must make up in your mind that when God is with you, you must win. Yes, it is pleasing your flesh but what is it doing to your spirit. Now do me a favor ask yourself what I’m watching is God in it.

Yaay! (Face covered) this post was a request….so enjoy reading a letter to Abisayo from a brother from another mother *smiles*. I actually wanted it to be personal..but I believe you guyz can learn a thing or two from it…

LETTER TO ABISAYO ISEYEMI

In the midst of the crowd
you have been singled out
in that wise,
you will have to learn
that in life, all men are not just and not true.
I dont mean all male alone,
but i mean all being
But endeavour to study them
you will have to learn
to have sublime faith in yourself
even when everybody believes you are wrong.
You will have to learn
never to please and satisfy human being
you will have to learn
the wonders of the holy bible
and ponder on the mysteries of why God created you the way you are
you will have to ponder on the mysteries why destiny brought us together as friend and a writer.
Ponder on those thing
because i have seen the promised land
remain unpertubed
believe in yourself
and keep the commandment.
I LOVE YOU.…. (Big hug)

Naija tory!!!

Naija tory!!
Starting from the daily lagos drama
Moving to those crazy bokoharam bombers
Coping with the NEPA wahala
I know its not gonna be forever
I still love my naija,
How can I forget those poor jobless kidnappers
And then the rich jobful political boxers..shh
My very own nigeria’s firstlady and her blunders(lip sealed)
My naija…where the jungle brains are leaders
And the city brains are followers.
How can I forget my very own danfo-drivers
Those crazy heart-attackers
U can only find them in naija
My naija
Lyk a group of rich people that need to climb a mountain
With a ladder
& outta this group…some people who I call carpenters!!smh
Keep volunteering to make this ladder
But you know they always get up the mountain first…
& then they use their own hands to pull down the ladder..so that no one gets to see what’s there
Oops…I forgot about the subsidy palava
naija never remained the same afterwards
& then the ASUU & FG tussle of power
Chaii…if u are a survival in naija..
U r a survival anywhr…(My opinion)
Till 2moro n 4eva I remain naija!
What abt those naija slangs…lyk iyala iya anybody!!…dere z none lyk it hehehehe
& then naija musicians…I guess whats reigning now…iz clubbangas
& then naija’s religion…I’ll call it anything goes…
In 1 area you have 4 diff churches…4 diff clubs…probably 4 diff shrines lol…& then 4 diff mosques or ‘ile keu’…it’s left for you to choose
The anthem says’ to serve with heart & might,1 nation bound in freedom,peace & unity’
Buh I guess its ‘ to embezzle & squander with heart & might, one nation full of resources, peace & whateva’
D list & d talk is endless about this great kontiri…
This is my Naija tory!! What’s yours!!!

Your top priority is your relationship with God and He is the one from whom you seek approval, the only real pressure that will affect you will come from Him through the Holy-spirit. By following Him you wont find yourself in compromising situations and even if you do, HE will provide a way out!.
One of the first things the Holyspirit made me understand just after i became a christian as a teenager was “You will be seen by the eyes of millions, but you must perform for an audience of ONE”. God is my ONE audience. When u r focused on God and what he thinks about you,it wont matter what kinda pressure others try to put on you!…
Remember what’s right is not always popular!..

JOURNEY TO SELF

Posted: July 28, 2013 in Uncategorized

JOURNEY TO SELF

Your life will definitely tell a story! Friends, write a good one. Apostle Paul took one that tagged him a black sheep and also led him to encounter Christ on his way to Damascus, so you see some decisions will most definitely give you the “black sheep” tag, take them anyway! Life as we all know is a journey (journey to self) that’s finding out who you are, talking about ‘self’, who am I? & what’s my definition? These questions really take me endless hours to answer because am a complex being embedded in a simple compartment, eager 2 explore these complexities but then I dont even understand this complex nature of mine and I am sure there are a lot of people who don’t too.
When I decide 2 take a risk, fear draws me back and when I eventually do take a risk successfully pride brings me down, Even when I successfully take a risk without fear and pride, I move on to take further risky decisions but without prior notice the inevitable *death* comes. For the few years I have journeyed to self, I have discovered that this journey is endless, even after death the complexities I’ve been able to explore, the good &evil it has contributed all lives after me. The person I’ve discovered to be me lives on after me in one way or the other. For those who have gone before me, I realized there are so many things that I discovered about them that they never found out about themselves & they probably would have never.
Journey to self! The only journey that never ends. It goes on & on even when we go back to our creator. How has your journey to self been so far? Take time to examine your life, as SOCRATES said- ‘the unexamined life is not worth living’
Friends check your ‘self”. Like a horse can be forced to the riverbank but can’t be forced to drink water, you are the most important change agent of yourself. Everything you are today, every character,habit ,failure and success that you are made up of today is a collection of all your choices, actions and reactions.
Stop living on people’s definition of U! stop living on circumstances, conditions, situations and past definition of your ‘self’.
Never be bullied into silence.  Never allow yourself to be made a victim.  Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.  ~Harvey Fierstein.

CHOICES

Posted: July 28, 2013 in Uncategorized

YOUR CHOICE!!!
Life is basically about choices..Christ died to save all..but not all choose to be saved.
The HolySpirit has been poured upon all flesh..but not all flesh chose to receive
Now your mind is where the battle of choice takes place..whatever dominates your mind, rules your life!!
The thing is consciously or unconsciously you live your life by the rules your mind dictates…
The book of wisdom says in Rom12:2(AMP) Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].
It all starts and ends in d mind!!
Now the question is…what DOMINATES ur mind??…of course there are lots of things in ur mind!! But there is a particular thing (or some particular things) that dominates it… Could it be a girl,a guy,sex,porn,masturbation,malice,envy,procastination,any form of sexual immorality, disobedience, fear, partying, to mention a few! We know all these things!
Look @ these again..a lot of bible believing christian knows ROM12:2..but just few choose to do what it says!

The book of wisdom says ps106:43..many times he delivered them, but they were bent on rebellion so they wasted away in their sin!!!…

“God can do a lot of things for you..but He can’t CHOOSE for you!”..

Take time to analyse these guys
To avoid being a victim of their lies
Their fake feelings they advertise
But your memory in their brain is not up to 8bytes
Like flies they perch on any available girl that catches their eyes
They pretend to have come to socialize
But as time goes on, they begin to act otherwise
Your fragile heart they brutalize
They play you amongst theirselves like a dice
They say it’s normal to exhibit such vice
But to be precise
Babes be wise!!
Because this guys aint really nice…
…….No be true I talk……. For as many guys reading this I know what’s going through your mind… So lemmie make it clear…. Babes could also act the same way…n not all guys are like that… but then babes must still beware!!!

THE UNSTOPPABLES

Posted: July 26, 2013 in Uncategorized

That unstoppable generation
That works with a God of all situation
Communicating through that most holy connection
That unstoppable generation, doesn’t remember what should be forgotten and doesn’t forget what should be remembered.
What actually makes them unstoppable is that sweet fellowship they have with the holyspirt.
They are called unstoppable not because the generation hasn’t been facing problems/challenges, not because they won’t be facing problems, not because they can’t face problems, but because problems will keep coming increasingly and they’ll keep discovering strength and capabilities dat’ll always keep them from falling and remain unstoppable.
That unstoppable generation is a collection of great godly positive mindsets, whose lives are ruled with the godly wisdom that will always take them far and not with feelings that’ll only put them under the subjection of what feels good @ the moment.
This generation lives by the faith theory(evidence of things not seen),see with the faith vision(walk by faith & not by sight),works with the faith act( faith kept alive by works), showcases the faith attitude!!(Confidence in Christ) As my pastor will say…the higher the impossibility the easier the possibility because with God all impossibilities are possible.
Now in this last days, full of limitless complexities, terrible mysterious and frustrating situations,the world that gives its members millions of reasons to just give into its deep darkness, the world though full of life only reveals death, though full of beauty reveals the ugly, though full of joy reveals sadness, though full of peace reveals war,though full of light reveals darkness, even with this oppositions ; that unstoppable generation is allienated! it is the life, beauty, joy,light & peace that must outstand d sadness, darkness,war, and death the world brings. Wow! Which implies that even in the worst of the worst situation they see ,wiv that faith vision, the best of the best of the best oppurtunity to stand out..taking note of a theory of light- the deeper the darkness, the brighter the light. Now tell me, wat else can they be called than unstoppable!!.
Y’all have to be a part of this….

Posted from WordPress for BlackBerry.

Someone once said, wisdom has taught me that the place of prayer is not to help me run away from danger ahead or on ground, but to empower me to face dem  and be victorious.
Wisdom has taught me that the place of prayer is not to place, perishable earthly desires before God, but to make enquires as to what is God desire for my life
It can be said that there are three phases in the life of a believer,  a carrier of Christ image
Phase1 ,
The place of Gethsemane, the place whr in the midst of  trials, examinations, testing, pain, evil,  darkness, when the tendency to let go of God’s direction and will is high. You choose to go on ur knees with ur face bowed down before God in humility and surrender to His will as Jesus did in Gethsemane. Funny enof at this stage even those u feel has attained certain heights in the spirit and you ask dem direction might be found sleeping like the 3 disciples of Jesus who were sleeping instead of keeping watch .
Phase2,
The place of the cross: until you have established d place of intimacy wiv God in Gethsemane,  u cannot be fit for d cross. Instead of carrying d cross, you tend to sleep on cross, wallowing in sorrow, pain,  unfulfilment, stagnation and the likes. This is because you’ve not remained in Christ, the place of intimacy, where His choice Bcomes urs, His priorities becomes urs and His will bcoms urs. at the place of d cross everything, spiritual blessings, teachings of truth,  instructions unto righteousness,all that uve acquired from the place of intimacy will be required of u. But it is quite sad, dat at this stage most of us are found sleeping. 
Phase 3
the place of glory: 
It is often said that u must carry a cross to experience glory. U cannot get to the place of glory without experiencing d cross. Jesus endured d cross because of the eternal glory dat has been set ahead. He was able to the endure the cross because He had already made God’s will He’s and He had already acquired everything he needs to live the life the Father wants. And So He was empowered to carry the cross till “it was finished “. And from d cross He went into eternal glory,  sitting at d right hand side of God most high with His name exalted over every other name!!!!

Now the question is are you a believer? Because all this might not make sense to you if you’re not.
Do u realize that the moment u give urself Away to Christ,  u begin to experience these phases?
And if u can’t stand dem, great will be ur fall like the foolish man that built his house on the sand.

Christianity doesn’t end at being born again, in fact it has no end. So we are to abide in Christ,  establish an intimacy with God. Hold forth the Word of life even when d situation doesn’t necessarily require u to. GET Lost IN CHRIST And  NO SITUATION IN DIS WORLD EVEN D DEVIL HIMSELF WILL NOT GET YOU AS OF THE CASE OF JOB.

Ref: Matthew26:36-45
        Hebrews 12:2 let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the glory set bfr Him endured d cross, scorning its shame, now sitted at the right hand of d father.

This journal is as a result of my regular fellowship with father in reference to everything that is a part of me i.e my relationships,my familY,my academics,my vocation, and my lifestyle.

The journal started from the 19th year of my life. For every new year of my life, there are always daily messages from my Father to teach me d truth, instruct me unto righteousness, rebuke my faults and correct my errors.

As you read through these messages i pray the holyspirit gives u insight,understanding,and correct interpretations to your practical

    Sometimes in life  uve gotta step down a little or take few steps backwards in order to see further and farther
       Uve also gotta look upside down to see inside out. 

– think about it, God is  ready to deposit every bit of His glory in you. But He doesnt like to share or compete with the devil in your heart.  It hurts Him so bad that many do not even realise this i.e how much He loves us.  We need 2 move from a place of meeting to the place of encounter.

–when God looks @ the earth, HE doesnt see the world with a church,but a church with the world around

— this our Fathers business is no popularity contest, its @ SOULBIZ not showbiz

Your life will definitely tell a story, friends write a good 1.

GOD IS D ONLY SUGAR LALA, DAT CAN GIVE YOU ITURA. HE’S CALLING U TO WALE OH! DNT LET HIS CALL ENTER VOICEMAIL OH! AND JUST LIKE MARY’S LITTLE LAMB FOLLOW HIM EVERYWHERE HE GOES

OCTOBER,2013
The christian MANDATE- TO KNOW CHRIST AND TO MAKE HIM KNOWN!

They that know dier God shall be strong and do exploit, but they that know not their God shall be weak n be exploited by d world.

We cant fake righteousness, we cant form holiness, we can only deceive ourselves.

Righteousness is abt knowing d rules and believing in d rules. Holiness is simply abiding by those rules

NOVEMBER,2013
If u av insufficient knowledge about aw much God loves u, u’ll also have insufficient knowledge abt aw much d devil hates u

Sometimes wat we want doesnt necessarily want us buh we just force ourselves into it and force ourselves

Sometimes in life uve gotta think outta d box. Let go of social,financial,humam protocols and make optimal use of God’s divine protocols.

Going 2 church every sunday doesn’t certify dat ure christ-like… Ure just a sunday worshipper a.k.a church-goer…. What God requires of us (micah6:8) is :
To do what is JUST
To show constant LOVE
To have an humble fellowship wiv God!!!…
Don’t go to church 2day bcos its a weekly routine u do….Go 2day to fellowship with fellow believers n worship God in harmony!

a boyfriend is not what you need!

beautiful message from KESTY TIPSY! an educator and writer! read and enjoy…

Source: http://www.nigeriansinamerica.com

Every relationship has its aim, goals and aspirations, but most people, despite the fact that they know what they want from the onset, keep falling into the danger of heartbreak and rejection, thereby destroying their future and wasting time with someone they know won’t ordinarily fulfill those dreams.

 

We go into relationships with the hope of getting married to that person we claim to love but in the long run we choose to waste our time even when we know that those dreams won’t be fulfilled.

 

A woman in her twenties is ripe for marriage from all indications, but it never ceases to amaze me that despite this fact you still find such women talk of boyfriends instead of husbands. They pray to have boyfriends and because they fail to set out a clear goal for themselves, they feel a boyfriend is just what they need.

 

When you come across a guy, if the goal you set out for yourself is that of finding a husband, the moment you sense the guy is coming with a boyfriend attitude there’s no point trying to see what he’s up to. It simply shows both of you are not on the same page at that point. The best thing to do is to let him go. Failure to do so will amount to you wasting your time with someone that isn’t ready for what you want and leaving you hurt in the end.

 

When women go into such union knowing fully well that they are not on the same page, they later turn to complain that men are all the same forgetting that what brought them that hurt is because they never defined what they wanted in that relationship.

 

Does it make sense to you if a guy wants to get married and you are not ready deep down or the goal you are setting is not towards that direction don’t you think he’s just wasting his time with you.

 

I know many of you will ask how you would know he’s serious for marriage but the truth is this; if you have a clear agenda before going into any relationship the signs will always give you the answer. No woman in her thirties with her right senses will pray for a boyfriend, but the truth is this, this is what they should have done when they were much younger but because they fail to realize that they’ve gotten to that marriage able age they stick to having a boyfriend rather than seeking for a husband thereby wasting precious time on baseless relationships.

 

If you’re a woman in your twenties do away with boyfriends, set a goal for yourself, seek a husband and when a guy comes around and he’s coming with a boyfriend attitude let him go so you won’t have to come blame your stupidity on love saying words like all “men are the same”

 

All men are the same to you because the reason you need a man in your life are the same and this is because you keep failing to understand what you need at your age.

 

Boyfriend and girlfriend issues should be left to teenagers. The moment you fail to realize that you’ve outgrown that age the more problem you keep having in finding a husband since your reasoning is still like that of a child.

 

Don’t waste your time hanging out with kids when you shouldn’t be doing so.

“Finding a husband is not as difficult as you think but knowing the right point when you should start seeking for one is”.

 

Most women have made this mistake which has led them to that stage where age is no longer on their side and all they can pray for is just any man to propose. Desperation then sets in and immediately they come across any man they hold on to him tight with the thought of if they allow him slip away they might never find another one just because age is no longer friendly to them. This is what they should have done back then when they had that golden opportunity but they never realized it and that is what has brought them to this mercy state.

 

Always spell it out, don’t waste your time chasing boyfriends when you should be chasing husbands. If you’re in your twenties boyfriend is not what you need. Don’t allow an unserious person destroy your future and don’t also destroy your beautiful life just because you fail to realize what you need. The moment you realize what you need in life the closer you are to your freedom. Setting wrong agenda will lead you into danger and hurt.

 

Love is beautiful and all men are not the same. All you need is realize what you want, set your goal and work towards achieving them.

 

 

 

a boyfriend is not what you need

We go into relationships with the hope of getting married to that person we claim to love but in the long run we choose to waste our time even when we know that those dreams won’t be fulfilled. A woman in her twenties is ripe for marriage from all indications, but it never ceases to amaze me that despite this fact you still find such women talk of boyfriends instead of husbands. They pray to have boyfriends and because they fail to set out a clear goal for themselves, they feel a boyfriend is just what they need. When you come across a guy, if the goal you set out for yourself is that of finding a husband, the moment you sense the guy is coming with a boyfriend attitude there’s no point trying to see what he’s up to. It simply shows both of you are not on the same page at that point. The best thing to do is to let him go. Failure to do so will amount to you wasting your time with someone that isn’t ready for what you want and leaving you hurt in the end. When women go into such union knowing fully well that they are not on the same page, they later turn to complain that men are all the same forgetting that what brought them that hurt is because they never defined what they wanted in that relationship. Does it make sense to you if a guy wants to get married and you are not ready deep down or the goal you are setting is not towards that direction don’t you think he’s just wasting his time with you. I know many of you will ask how you would know he’s serious for marriage but the truth is this; if you have a clear agenda before going into any relationship the signs will always give you the answer. No woman in her thirties with her right senses will pray for a boyfriend, but the truth is this, this is what they should have done when they were much younger but because they fail to realize that they’ve gotten to that marriage able age they stick to having a boyfriend rather than seeking for a husband thereby wasting precious time on baseless relationships. If you’re a woman in your twenties do away with boyfriends, set a goal for yourself, seek a husband and when a guy comes around and he’s coming with a boyfriend attitude let him go so you won’t have to come blame your stupidity on love saying words like all “men are the same” All men are the same to you because the reason you need a man in your life are the same and this is because you keep failing to understand what you need at your age. Boyfriend and girlfriend issues should be left to teenagers. The moment you fail to realize that you’ve outgrown that age the more problem you keep having in finding a husband since your reasoning is still like that of a child. Don’t waste your time hanging out with kids when you shouldn’t be doing so. “Finding a husband is not as difficult as you think but knowing the right point when you should start seeking for one is”. Most women have made this mistake which has led them to that stage where age is no longer on their side and all they can pray for is just any man to propose. Desperation then sets in and immediately they come across any man they hold on to him tight with the thought of if they allow him slip away they might never find another one just because age is no longer friendly to them. This is what they should have done back then when they had that golden opportunity but they never realized it and that is what has brought them to this mercy state.  Always spell it out, don’t waste your time chasing boyfriends when you should be chasing husbands. If you’re in your twenties boyfriend is not what you need. Don’t allow an unserious person destroy your future and don’t also destroy your beautiful life just because you fail to realize what you need. The moment you realize what you need in life the closer you are to your freedom. Setting wrong agenda will lead you into danger and hurt. Love is beautiful and all men are not the same. All you need is realize what you want, set your goal and work towards achieving them.

IRRESISTIBLE GENERATION

Posted: February 24, 2014 in Uncategorized

The hour has come for the people of irresistible Influence to take their place and begin to manifest and fulfil the mandate of knowing Christ and Making Him known!!

FOURSQUARE STUDENTS' FELLOWSHIP UNILAG

A generation of an IRRESISTIBLE Influence? Can we have such a generation of people? Oh! YES!!! A group of people whose mien, actions and decisions are indeed influential to others around them. Not just influential but irresistible.

A set of personalities whose spirit-filled lives become the mirror which others in the world jostle to utilise and mark as yardstick. Lives that will be change agents. Indeed propellers of innovative ideas and progress. Persons that will stand tall above corruption, average-minded thought process, pessimists and believers in mediocrity.

In this world of perverseness, sorcery, nudity, inflamed passion for media buzz and social networking, the youthful generation is indeed being caught by the bug. Many a lives are pining away. A generation budding is that which spend eternity on social networks just uploading pictures of ‘achievements’ they term ‘landmarks’. Asides being emergency photo men, they vigorously keep tabs on the ephemeral things…
