PLEASE


The word "please" is a subtle cry for mercy. It expresses one's vulnerability. The phrase 'please' has reinstated businesses, work, cordial and intimate relationships. In the same vain, it has clouded the thinking abilities of individuals, thus handicapping them. These "handicap" could entail compromising to illegitimate business deal, subscribing to peer pressure, or in serious occasion, giving up one's moral values. Some have contacted venereal diseases because of please.

It is true that vulnerability is a bridge to connection. But never forget that vulnerability is one of the ways. There are others means of attaining it. Connection in this context means legitimate links to self purpose.

Please can be used in harmless or harmful contexts. Stay woke! Ensure you're using the term "please" to achieve a purpose, not to attack a prey. If the eventual result of the use of your "please'' doesn't align with godly results, then you're subscribing to the negative/harmful please.

Let no one take advantage of you. Your vulnerability shouldn't be downplayed to the level of stupidity. Most importantly, accept the harmless please. *winks


Have a PLEASANT day Fam!

You'll Never Walk Alone?


The above epigram/post title "You'll never walk alone'' is familiar among football fans especially Liverpool Football Club fans.

When you walk alone, you go far but when you walk with people you go fast - Joyce Meyer

Anchor Scripture: {Ecclesiastes 3:1}
"To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven.''

There is a time to walk alone and there is also a time to walk with others. If you're still in the "Walking alone phase," nothing will stop you from walking with others at the appointed time.

Ever been in a situation where no one thinks of a certain good, but the moment God blesses you with an idea that'll tend to take you and the organization you probably work in to the next level, almost everybody in the organization begins to resist and antagonize you directly or indirectly?
In such situation, don't feel tempted to bury your ideas in a coffin. *See Ephesians 5:14 (MSG Translation) Never be scared of walking alone. Stop being tormented by everyone else's reaction towards you. Walk it through!

At some point in the lives of Joseph, Stephen, John, Paul, they dared to walk alone and the results they recorded were insurmountable.

Dare the impossible by walking alone, not forgetting that one with God is majority. He gives the ultimate backing and has promised to reward those who diligently seek Him -Hebrews 11:6b

Cos eventually, You'll Never Walk Alone...

Dining With The Devil


You may ask, is it okay to dine with the devil when James 4:7 categorically states, "Submit yourself before God. Resist the devil, and he'll flee?''

In cases where resisting and fleeing from the devil is inevitable, what do you do? Dine with him with a very long spoon! This literally means keeping a distance; subscribing to full consciousness and eliminating every distraction till the said meal has been done with.

Anchor Scripture: {1 Peter 5:8}
"Be alert and sober of mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour."

In as much as dining with the devil to obtain a tangible result may be the only route to obtaining a desired result, know when to stop dining! "There is time for  everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens."- Ecclesiastes 3: 1 Be at alert.

The devil is bad to the bone! He can go the extra mile to pin you down to a spot. Never give in. Never (consciously or unconsciously) create the slightest opening for  him to penetrate. Avoid sin - Gossip, fornication, adultery, malice, theft and every other negative vice. It's the only way to step out of the dining room without a running belle. It's the only way to stay winning.

It's okay to dine with the devil when the need arise, but do that with a very long spoon!


Have a Fab day!

The Infected Cookie


If you could say no over and over to an infected cookie in the past (even when you had to elope because you didn't have the nerve to look it in the face and reject it) then you'll end up with a running belle if you can't look it in the eye today and yell a thunderous no, now that you're well thought, confident and eek of wisdom.

Ever been in a situation where people offered you regular cookies (which were not bad) but it didn't seem to excite you because of the picture of the special cookie that's been registered in your taste bud that needs to be tended to, thus making you salivate on the subconscious until you took a bold step not to salivate anymore but wait gracefully for that specially-made cookie irrespective of the time frame?

Well, one fateful day when you were not looking, a regular cookie tagged along. You didn't notice it because it was not just your type but the cookie was all up in your face consistently, like it was an emissary. You soon oblige on purpose to have a bitty taste of this basic cookie that's refused to just let you be. And alas! it tasted great. The subtle imperfection embedded on the wrapper used for its packaging didn't matter. But as this supposed special cookie digested in your system, it made your belle ache real bad. Only then did you realize that it was infected.

Memory Verses: {Nahum 1:9} NKJV
"What do you conspire against the Lord? He will make an utter end of it. Affliction will not rise up a second time.''

Do not give up on the scout for that special cookie you've envisioned. You deserve the best, not the second best.

Give Up On Your Dreams

But only for a short while though...

Some people put their dreams on hold for many weeks, months or even years in order to serve, acquire knowledge and in turn undergo the training phase. They are on the right path.

I once heard a public speaker say, "In order to make your dream come true, you'll have to give up your dream to make another person's dream come true.''
You make ask, "How feasible is this?'' Well, there is something called calculated risk. Ensure that whoever you'll give up your dreams for is worth it. This can be likened to the case of a nursing mother who takes a while off the work scene to tend to her newborn, but her snap back is divinity, because she returns fiercer than ever. Service and Honour is rewarding.

Anchor Scripture: {Genesis 29:18}
"Now Jacob loved Rachael; so he said, 'I will serve you seven years for Rachael your younger daughter."

Giving up one's dream temporarily comes with a lot of mixed feelings that includes; pain, anguish, happy moments, sleepless nights, discipline, subscribing wholly to the ethics etc.

Jacob was a distinguished Zoologist who put his dream on hold in order to ensure that his heart desire is met. It entailed marrying Rachael.

While putting one's dream on hold, it is deal to apply wisdom, thus analyzing the prospect of your long term goal and ensuring that plan B is nurtured concurrently.
People change for better or for worse, it shouldn't take you by surprise when this happens. Jacob learnt the hard way. *See Genesis Chapters 29- 31 for the full account.

Time investment/service is tantamount to a certified work experience, because overtime, one's skill is sharpened and their horizon, broadened.

Give up on your dream (but only for a short while), bearing in mind that no calculated risk/investment is a waste of time.


Have a Fab day Y'all

The Warning Sign


A warning sign is a signage that awakens the consciousness of a danger. Failure to adhere may result to a weighty sanction or disaster.

Anchor Scripture: {Deuteronomy 4:9}
''Only give heed to yourself and keep your soul diligently, so that you do not forget the things which your eyes have seen and they do not depart from your heart all the days of your life.''

In a car dashboard display which updates or provides the driver with the appropriate information from time to time, ignoring the notification from the icons that represent the fuel gauge, temperature, maintenance, etc can lead to a crash that'll involve a lot of financial commitment to be reinstated or even an irrevocable loss of the vehicle.

The above illustration applies with relationship issues. The warning signs pop up from time to time.

The warning sign is not a disastrous signage but a sign that prevents one from a disaster if duly interrogated. If the warning sign in a relationship is ignored, it becomes monstrous overtime. But if the irreconcilable differences are reconciled in due course, then a healthy union is guaranteed.

The warning signs are ever before us. Pay attention. Act accordingly.

Have a great day Fam!

Just Like That!

Just kidding... lol

Since year 2015 after the demise of my mum, I've been praying to God for "equally yoked'' female friends who will tag along with me to the future. Two years later, Jesus did it!

I can understand if you're giving me a side eye or probably referring to me as dramatic, but in truth, I was wired to function effectively with the right association. Being raised in a "full'' house may have contributed to the factor.

Anchor Scripture: {Proverbs 18:24}
"One who has unreliable friends soon comes to a ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.''

All my life, I've had cool friends in between, but in the case of an equally yoked friend that sticks closer than a brother, it's been mission impossible. You'll never appreciate the presence of abundance until you've experienced perpetual lack. Well, all I can say is Thank You Jesus!

God added an amazing male friend to my life few months ago and topped it up with two female friends that have been all shades of amazing. Waking up to female friends who will join me in my morning devotion (where we'll have to set the agenda for the day) has been my utmost dream. Good news! that is my reality. Still feels unreal. *lool. Chai! Thank You Jesus.

The most interesting part is that these girls are my confidant, they understand. Guys claim to understand girls but it's really not so, unless you're lucky to meet a like minded person or one who has been adequately equipped from years of experience.

In truth, patience is a virtue! And yes, God is still in the business of answering prayers. His ways or pattern may seem slow but He's never a late God.

I still have other heart desires I'm believing God for, but I don't have trust issues when God is involved. Over the years, I've learnt to be patient with Him, and yeah, sometimes I have some questions about certain circumstances. But ultimately, I've realized that His ways are not our ways and He always has the perfect plan.

Just like that... Jesus heard me. He didn't give me double for my trouble, but triple for my tribulation. His praise will forever be on my lips. Amen

What are you believing God for? Wait on Him. He'll answer.
