THE VOICE OF GOD (PSALM 29)

It destroys
It shatters
It makes lightening flash
It makes thunders roar
It makes mountains skip
It makes forests bare
It causes praises
It makes me strong
It gives me peace
It is mighty yet marvellous

WHEN GOD TAKES POSITION

He stands beside me to protect me from fear
He stays with me to show mw the path to life
He is near me to make me glad

He sits beside me to make me joyful

FLAP ‘EM ANKLES!


The last two months have been an exciting one for me because I've been learning how to swim. I have always been terrified of water and I give anyone washing my hair including myself a hard time, so I woke up one morning and decided to learn how to swim after much deliberations and contemplations with myself.
My first swim session was about getting me to relax in water and walking in it. The weeks that followed saw me flapping my legs and swimming with floats without being held by the instructor. When I first got to this stage, I always thought I never moved from where I am but each time I looked back, I discovered had covered a great distance.
The last few weeks saw me covering this distance even faster and with the instructor standing by the edge of the pool edging me on and saying ‘Flap, ‘em ankles, Temi, faster! Faster!’ I ease into swimming and do it faster.
So you think your life is at a standstill? Look back and see where you have been, look forward and listen to God, He’s right with you saying ‘Flap ‘em ankles, and follow my lead’.

BLACK PEN

Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. -Albert Einstein (1879-1955) 

I often get teased a lot about how horrible my handwriting is. When I was little, I used to get really worried about this and I worked hard to change it or improve it.
But I was doing the same I used to do, I just kept writing and writing but my writing wasn’t making my handwriting perfect. I was doing the same thing the same way and expecting an improved hand-writing.
Then one day, I discovered that two things affect my handwriting: my emotional state and the color of ink I used.
When I am nervous, sad or emotionally down, my handwriting is terrible. But when I’m elated, my writing is good. Also, when I use blue pen, my handwriting isn’t always the best, but a black pen is a good thing for my writing all the time.
Are you studying hard to pass that exam but still forgetting to ask god for His wisdom, understanding, direction and favour?
Are you trying to stop that alcohol addiction but still going out and mixing with the wrong crowd? Are you striving to grow spiritually but still slack in studying your Bible and building your relationship with God through prayer?
Stop trying the same thing over and over, try out a different method. Ask God to open your eyes of understanding for God is the God of all wisdom, knowledge and understanding regarding every matter.

MURKY WATERS

Murky Waters-Image Downloaded from: Copyright (c) 123RF Stock Photos



I am not too much of an observant person but sometimes, God opens my eyes to see somethings in order that I might understand some other things better.
For instance, I noticed that a canal was being dredged in one of the communities I pass through daily on my way to work. I also noticed that the water in the canal is murky-nothing extra about this I think.
Yesterday morning, was one of the mornings God opened my eyes to see. To see that even though the water was murky, I could still see the sun’s reflection in it. To understand that some situations might seem unclear now but seeing everything from God’s perspective and through the reflection of His word, they will soon pass away just like the murky waters flowing through that canal now.

Understanding your purpose


To understand how to make use of a gadget, it will probably take:
An hour of your day to read the manual,
Days of your weeks to apply what you read,
Weeks of your months to experiment with the gadget,
Months of your years to get used to it
Coupled with believing that the device will work for you.
Therefore, just add a life-time of trusting plus every moment of obedience to studying God’s word and praying, and what you’ll get is fulfilling God’s purpose for your life.

WELCOME 2013


2013, as I look forward to your birth, I look back into 2012 and I am grateful to God for allowing 2012 give you birth.
2013, the last breath of 2012 will be your first. I do not see you as an ordinary passing phase in my life, i see you instead as a time frame that has life in it.
Because you have life, you will be fruitful to me. As you grow, so will I and your death will mean even more growth for me, in you will i multiply, overcome challenges, climb the steepest heights and walk through the deepest valleys and come out more than a conqueror (Romans 8:37). 2013, I will not feat you because I have a God that knows all about you.
2013, you will answer yo me, you will favor me, be peaceful and be blessed for me.
I have a God that knows the plans He has for me, plans of prosperity and of hope (Jeremiah 29:11), He will step into the year with me and be with me all through, whatever I lay my hands on in year 2013 and beyond shall prosper. Amen
