SHOW UP!

Image
Do you know that 80% of successes are recorded by people who show up? 
I got my first secular TV job which I love so much by not only showing up but applying the waiting game  principle. The producer of the show was away in Lagos for a meeting and was scheduled to return to Abuja at 2pm to promote the new show. 
Prior to my meeting with her, I had looked up to her as a mentor in the journalistic world and it was going to be my dream come through to finally meet her in person. She didn't show up at 2pm but at 11pm, I waited for extra 9 hours to compliment my "showing up" approach. 
We eventually exchanged pleasantries after her recording session and she was so pleased to meet me but was particularly moved by my zest and sacrifice. I left the studio on the eve of the next day at about 12:45am. That meeting launched me into multifaceted media.
The initial plan was to involve me as an intern in the organization but the director of the show who was already getting to know me eval…

FREELY YOU HAVE RECEIVED, FREELY GIVE

Image
God doesn't need your money to bless you. As a matter of fact, money is a secular commodity made by man. God still operates in the reality of trade by barter.
The most beautiful thing about God is that He works with the resources in your hands and multiplies it a great deal. He makes use of what is in your hand, not what isn't in your hand.

There is no pressure with Christ. He will never manipulate you with gaudy speeches, neither will he ask you to go overboard or borrow to please Him.

Anchor Scripture: {Mathew 10:8} "Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.''
The above scriptural passage did not include a charge or handout before obtaining miracles. But it is your sole responsibility to give back to humanity when He blesses you. That singular act is called Thanksgiving and it is very dear to God. {Luke 6:38: "Give and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together and ru…

That One Leper...

Image
Become that one leper who goes back to say thank you in the year 2019...

Advance thanksgiving in anticipation of the goodies you're expecting from the Throne of Grace are great but observing a quiet time to reflect on the goodies that you had received within a particular time frame is fantastic.

God uses people to bless us. And so putting a call through, sending a warm message or delivering a parcel (according to your financial ability) is a legitimate way to say Thank You Jesus. It is the little things that matter and God never seizes to bless thoughtful people who return to say thank you.

Anchor Scripture:{Luke 17:15-19} "And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, and fell on his feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan.  So Jesus answered and said, were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner? And He said to him, Arise, go you…

ALL THINGS NEW

Image
You can go to bed a sinner and wake up a saint

You can go to bed with no vision and wake up with a mission

You can go to bed with a dirge and wake up with a ballad

You can go to bed with a liability and wake up with an asset

You can go to bed in a mess and wake up with a message

You can go to bed with an infirmity and wake up with healing

You can go to bed gloomy and wake bloomy

You can go to bed empty and wake up full

You can go to bed in lamentations and wake up with gratitude

... Because His mercies endures forever and His blessings are new every morning.

Scriptural Reading: Revelations 21:5 "Behold, I make all things new, write, for these words are true and faithful."

FEMININE AUTHORITY

Image
Feminine Authority is scriptural and I'll walk you through a passage of the Holy Bible that will change any whooped ideology about the female gender.

Anchor Scripture: {1 Corinthians 11:8-11} "For man is not from woman, but woman from the man. Nor was man created for the woman, but woman for man. For this reason the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels. Nevertheless, neither is man independent of woman, nor woman independent of man, in the Lord.''
I discovered the above scripture while on vacation with my husband during our last devotion/ meditation at the Yankari Game Reserve and it got me thinking of how unfair women have been allotted the lowest portion out of the general equation.

The passage depicts woman as a symbol of authority. Sadly, this contradicts the situation of women globally. Women are referred to as the weaker sex who must depend on the man for succor, excluded from leadership positions, suppressed and subjecte…

I'M WINNING!

Image
To all the doors that got slammed in my face, God opened new doors!

To all who mocked me at my back, It's safe to say I'm laughing last!

To all who left me stranded, God picked me up and is making me a masterpiece!

To all who thought I wasn't good enough or too much to handle, God whispered into my ears saying, "You're good enough and more than enough baby!"

To all who looked away when I need a Mother-figure, God sent my Grandmother-In-Law and we're beginning to share identical looks!

To all who stole from me, you can keep all you stole from me. It will go out of style in the next few years and I'll have the limited edition!

To all who couldn't handle my imperfection, it's okay to distant yourself, I wasn't sent to everybody!

To all who looked down on me and currently are, I am very conscious about my worth and so un-bothered about your delusional opinion!

To all who swore I couldn't have a home, I'm creating an iconic family mode…

Go Back To The Drawing Board!

Image
When things aren't adding up, quit the complaints and go back to the drawing board and start all over!

The drawing board gives you freedom to evaluate, erase the initial plan and  replot the course for actualizing divine purpose.

Scriptural Passage: {Numbers 11:1-2} "The people began to complain to the LORD about their troubles. When the LORD heard them, He was angry and sent fire on the people. It burnt among them and destroyed one end of the camp."
The above scriptural passage explicitly show us the dangers of complaints and grumbling.

No one is comfortable with a crying baby, even God. Complaining non-stop about an unruly situation without investigating the root cause and tackling it by applying effective measures to redeem you will only do you a disservice.

Ever been in a situation where you complain and grumble about everything that is weighing you down and begin to bore the people around you, making them feel uncomfortable? Well, That was my case a month ago. I…
