Above all, Gag Thy Tongue!

       Quit sharing ridiculous bad news and gossips, you're not a garbage truck.

Everybody is fighting their unique battles and running their race. Before you stoop so low or subscribe to gossiping about another (especially their private lives), think again.

It's every shade of wrong to make others a topic/subject of your discussion especially when you know nothing about their lives.  We live in a world digital world where people now comfortably predict the lives of others for a living, either from pictures, outdoor events, get-together, etc and can affirm their assertion is a 100% correct.

Words hurt, words heal, the power to make or to maim is in the mouth. Watch what you say! Gossiping about others behind their back them makes you behind them. If you have nothing nice to say, then don't say anything at all.

Most people spend too much time trying to figure out how others live, forgetting that their own lives needs to evaluated, reevaluated and put together to aid in their development process.

Are you living a life of purpose? Does your life glorify God and is worthy of emulation? What is your own quota to humanity? On judgement day, will you be able to give a comprehensive report on work(s) done?

If you can't confidently answer the above questions truthfully and relate it with your life's result, then it's time to quit investing wordless time trying to bring another down or make them look bad before people, rather, be caught glorifying their good works and discipline yourself towards becoming the best you can be and watch all things work together for your good.

Psalm 34:13
"Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit."

Be gracious in your speech and motives.


Happy New Month guys! *yaaay, It's going to be an epic day for me! Benny Hinn is town!

DISCIPLINE


Most people are in the habit of using their personality as a yardstick to accessing other people's personality. That is wrong in every ramification!

That you're not disciplined enough to maintain a healthy conversation with the opposite sex "without catching feelings" doesn't mean others will subscribe to your composition. That you're not disciplined enough to look away from that beautiful nanny when you and wifey are having confrontations will warrant another hubby to look in the direction of his nanny.

The above differences and much more which are too many to be outlined are termed "individual differences."
In truth, positive traits don't come easy, they go hand in gloves with a lot of self discipline and strict adherence to the word of God.

More so, individual weaknesses vary as well, just like individual strengths or capabilities vary.  That you have a lot of complex issues/insecurities going on doesn't mean the 'guy or babe' next door is suffering from your mental illness.

Every human is born mortal and is exposed to positive and negative traits/composition because the mortal nature encompasses the knowledge of the good and evil. *The forbidden fruit rings a bell to you right?

Figure out your weakness(es) and consciously indulge discipline through God's extravagant assistance. It's a conscious work and walk.

Have a Fab day.

EXEMPTION



What's your grace level like?  Is it pressed down, shaken together and spilling over like that of Joshua and Caleb?  Can it exempt you from tragic circumstances, misdemeanor or negative atmospheres?

Everybody is exposed to grace but not everybody is disposed to grace, for grace-overflow is birthed by total surrender to the instruction, guidance and absolute trust in the lord.

Grace breaks protocols on one's behalf.

Anchor Scripture: {Numbers: 32:10-12}
"And God angry - oh did he get angry! He swore: They'll never get to see it; none of those who came up out of Egypt who are twenty years and older will ever get to see the land I promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. They weren't interested in following me - their hearts weren't in it. None, except for Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite, and Joshua son of Nun; they followed me - their hearts were in it."

Joshua and Caleb oozed of grace. They were the only ones exempted from the agonizing ordeal that was to befall the people of Israel. They walked in total surrender to the directives of God and they were gracefully rewarded for their action.

Ever wondered why God had to subscribe to swearing? He was deeply moved by their level of loyalty! The fact that they were young adults (youths), didn't deter them from acting upon the commandment of God in swift obedience, believing in Him, having faith in Him, trusting Him and committing their hearts to Him.

How intense is your commitment with God? Only In-depth commitment yields Grace-immeasurable.

Commit yourself today by taking that personal relationship with God to another level and watch your life spill of grace.

Have a Productive guys!

Don't Be In A Rush To Become A Teacher


It'll interest you to know that teachers have the most noble profession on earth. If you're a teacher or a prospect teacher, bottles up! *e no easy.

Teaching is a highly responsible work. It's exhausting, it entails a whole lot of discipline to prepare self. Teachers are blessed with the gift of impacting knowledge, guiding and molding their subjects in the right path.

Anchor Scripture: {James 3:2} MSG Translation
"Teachers are held to the strictest standards. And none of us is strictly qualified. We get it wrong nearly every time we open our mouths. If you could find someone whose speech was perfectly true, you'd have a perfect person, in perfect control of life."

Why do teachers have the most sensitive job on earth? 
It easy... They make use of their vocal abilities (speech), it's their tool for battle. A carelessly placed word out of their mouth can turn harmony into chaos, throw mud on a reputation, mislead or misdirect, it can manipulate the hearts of an entire progeny and even more. 

From the positive angle, teachers have the super power of converting the above mentioned negativity into the positive. The  responsibility of  blessing, directing, guiding, coaching, etc, have been vested on them. 

Don't be in such a hurry to be a teacher, adequate preparation is entirely needed for the ambiguous task. Teachers learn everyday to meet up to the standards of the ever diversifying world.
And for your information, the world has records of great teachers but there's never been records of any perfect teacher.  

Have a Blessed day guys!

Sons Of Sarah!... Get In Here!

 
Ladies, look away! I'm the only one permitted to view. lol

Hubby, Future Hubbies, here's a quickie on Hubby roles thoughtfully penned down by St. Peter. You'll love. *smiles

Sons of Sarah,

Be good husbands to your wives. *Be thoroughly good with them. They're so frail even though their tongues are opposite. Their overreaction most times is geared towards the overall benefit, learn to perceive that from behind the scene, and you'll be glad you did.

Honour them, delight in them. As women they lack some of your advantages. *It's obvious you're the lion and they're the lambs, respect their lamb-like features. They're aware your ego is on another level. Even when you want to show yourself, 'bros calm down' they're aware you're an overall softie.
Show her off, the original plan and idea was/is to disburse 'pepper' into any 'pepperbody.' hahaha

But in your new life of God's grace, you're equals. Treat your wives, then, as equals so your prayers don't run aground. *Bros, all this is trying to explain is that it's a "partnership" venture not "sole-proprietorship" venture. Subscribe to her recommendation/critique and watch your life blossom. Not forgetting that appeasing her is the only password to answered prayer.

*Each day, ensure you're taking baby steps into becoming the giant you've envisioned.
  Each day, ensure you're adhering strictly to the commands of the Heavenly Father
  Each day, ensure you're keenly subscribing to every qualities enumerated above. For no one rocks (future) fatherhood like you do even when they try, you're the apple of your (future) daughter's eye, lightener of your (future) son's heart, warrior of your treasured (future) wife and ruler of nations.

#Sons of Sarah!... What's up?!

Have a Noble day!

Daughters Of Sarah!...Get In Here!

     *Guys, look away... #Yimu. lol

Wives, Future wives, here's a quickie on wifey roles thoughtfully penned down by St. Peter, You'll love. *smiles

={1 Peter 3:1-6}=

Daughters of Sarah,

Be good wives to your husbands, responsive to their needs. There are husbands who, indifferent as they are to any words about God, will be captivated by your life of holy beauty. *Being more spiritually grounded than him was the original plan and should be reinstated.

What matters is not your outer appearance - the styling of your hair, the jewelry you wear, the cut of your clothes - but your inner disposition. *Be spontaneous. You can pull both (inward and outward) stunts off with ease. It's safer that way you know. lol

Cultivate your inner beauty, the gentle, gracious kind that God delights in. The holy women of old were beautiful before God that way, and were good loyal wives to their husband. Sarah for instance taking care of Abraham, would address him as "my dear husband.'' You'll be true daughters of Sarah if you do the same, unanxious and unintimidated. *Insecure what? Never! You can't be graciously edified with tons of goodness smitten allover and feel less of a woman. Dang! You're Queen! Chin up! else, your crown slips away!

*Each day should be an improvement of the former.
  Each day should entail you're moving forward towards the actualization of your dreams, having your eyes fixed on the goal.
  Each day should be a routinary menu of upgrading in every ramification, because you're the limited edition of your brand, your own original's original cos no one can do it better than you do even when they try, for; "You're your OWN's You!"

#Daughters of Sarah! What's up?!


Have a Glam day.

Suffer In Silence!


Who hurt you? Who made your insecurity level skyrocket? Who took advantage of your genuineness? Who told you that you'll never amount to nothing? Be content to let God set things right on your behalf!

Are you suffering over an unjust cause? Suffer in silence.

Jesus' life on earth and agonizing journey to the cross is a typical illustration of suffering in silence. Interestingly, Jesus prayed to The Father at every step or move He made all His life. He endured to the end and emerged victorious by conquering death.

-Some examples of the prayer life of Jesus include the following;
1. After His baptism when He was about to commence ministry works.
2. Before choosing his disciples.
3. Before taking any decision.
4. On the mount of transfiguration with Peter, James and John.
5. At the garden of Gethsemane before he was tried to be crucified.
6. At the cross. etc

Ever wondered why the disciples didn't ask to be taught the logic of signs and wonders but to be taught how to pray? Prayer is Key!

Are you;
* From a dysfunctional home? Suck it up!
* In an awful marriage or relationship? Suck it up!
* Struck with a poor health? Suck it up!
* Psychologically down and tired with the throes life throws at you? Suck it up!
* Painstakingly nurturing your career path and a measurable amount of success is not evidenced? Suck it up!
* Unlucky with meeting the right friends? Suck it up!
* A victim of rape, abuse, torture and other negative vices? Suck it up!
* Living in abject poverty with zero hope assurance? Suck it up!

It is true that a problem shared is a problem half solved, but the best way to suffer in silence is to take it up to the Lord in prayer.

Stop telling your problem to people who ain't close ties, 80% don't care and the other 20% are glad you have them. -Lou Holtz

     A diagram illustrating human division of thoughts.... Most people don't care!

In-depth prayer to God births divine orchestrated strategies used to terminate every shade of negative vice and attribution.

Anchor Scripture:{1 Peter 2:23}
"They called Him every name in the book and He said nothing back. he suffered in silence, content to let God set things right."

Involve God in the equation on a daily basis, trust Him with the ability of altering persecution into perfection and experience accelerated shift in all your troubles. Amen.

Have a Productive day guys!

The Long Distance Runner!


Some run short distances, others; moderate distances, but hey! Bottles up for the long distance runner! He is that runner who perseveres to the end even in the face of adversities.

The long distance runner is one who becomes overwhelmed with the burdensome race filled with thorns and throes, and is tempted to opt out. But God steps in, opens his eyes with an amplified vision of the finish line and renews his strength to enable him continue with the final lap in the quest to actualize destiny.

The long distance runner subscribes to routinary discipline/mortification, but overtime, is rewarded handsomely.

Anchor Scripture: {Hebrew 12:12-13}
"So don't sit around on your hands! No more dragging your feet! Clear the path for long distance runners so no one will trip and fall, so no one will step in a hole and sprain an ankle. Help each other out. And run for it!"

The long distance runner needs human support as well. No man ever lived in isolation, else, his life becomes brutish, short, absurd and not worth living. In the same vain, the path of the athlete needs to remain clear (void of distraction) so he doesn't slip and have a disastrous fall.

Adversities are signs that you're near your victorious empire. Don't give up, He 'gat' you.

#Your promise land is not empty, they are filled with giants. It's going to be a bloody fight but don't be appalled, for the good Lord has trained your hands for battle(s). Trust in him and you'll never be forsaken or left aback.

Have a Fab Week ahead!

DISTRACTION


We all get distracted at some point in our lives. Our area of respective weakness(es) determines the gravity at which this stronghold termed "distraction" dominates our daily affairs.

Those who know me personally can attest to the fact that I'm a great talker, but then, the only time I get talking are moments when I get to see them. Most of the time, I'm deeply engrossed with work, work, work. Therefore, the next time you see me running my mouth in public, please don't judge me, for those moments are my 'gateaway' moments. *reception of fresh air is allowed abeg. lol

The act of distraction can be likened to the act of a little child whose been held behind closed doors all day long and finally obtains exit to go out to play with other friends in the block. Only a disciplined child would know when to wrap it up for the day. But an undisciplined child would even forget that he/she came from another home.

No one can wholly escape distraction, whether consciously or subconsciously. But it is important to know when to withdraw. Yes, It is possible.

Are you a social media addict? Don't be distracted by how the data bundles are becoming inexpensive by the day, don't waste yourself in the process, it's only a trap! Addicted to Porn? You're selling your soul to the devil! Addicted to the company of many friends? You'll hurt yourself in the process!
Whatever you put before God is your god!

The antidote to Distraction is Discipline.

I'm a typical sanguine with weaknesses attributed to my temperament trait, until I began to master the art of withdrawal, it helped develop my innate melancholic trait which I was clueless about. I'm still a work in progress though but the dramatic change its positive effect had on me is evidenced to all.

What distracts you a great deal? What robs you of  your time? Is it worth it? Know when to return to your cave and get the most out of your productive self; for everything The Maker created was good and He has given each and everyone of us power to dominate the earth.

Ever wondered why He didn't give such powers to His angels?... Subscribe to Discipline and eliminate all shades of Distraction today!

Have an Exhilarating Weekend ahead!

There is Space In The Manger!

    No space in the Inn? he he, look around, there is space in the manger!

There is nothing wrong with starting small, but there is everything wrong with not starting at all. The comfort zone is "artificial."

We live in a society where every one is "rich" and nobody wants to affiliate with the grass root.
In all sincerity, looking good is good business, but never fake it (lie/pretend about it) while trying to make it. There is no sin in thriving. Never be ashamed to hustle. Whatever your hands get to do, do it! For He has promised to Bless the work of our hands.

What are you passionate about? What gets your attention and interest @ a 100%? Start from your level, even at a level which may seem unfair to your status. It may include working as a freelancer or being underpaid in an undesired organization. Here's the heavenly promise: The Lord of the harvest will cause rain to water your field in due season.

Remember Joseph was working in Jail (interpreting classified dreams), Paul was writing (working) in prison, his works (books) are yardsticks for life assessment till date and for the coming generation undoubtedly. Noah worked his ass off with no pay while building the ark (coupled with the fact that he passed through a non-existent Engineering academy). David fought (worked) all the battles to ease the workload for his son Solomon.

When it seems like your wall is falling apart, remember the Blessed Mother of Jesus, Virgin Mary, was due to be delivered of the saviour of the world and all the inns at the time were full, they subscribed to using the manger which was a mockery to humanity.
In all, the three wise men were still able to locate them and gift the Infant Jesus with all they had brought. More so, the infant Jesus grew to become the Messiah and the King of all the Earth and the Heavens. #The favour and blessing of the Lord will locate you today, Amen!

Elude yourself from distraction (material, emotional and psychological needs), Focus on your focus, aim at the goal with strategic alliance, Hold firm on God's word daily and watch the blessings of the Lord locate you at the appointed time; for he teaches us to profit. {Isiaih 48:17}

Feeling low? It's time to rise! No one actualized destiny mourning through the entire journey.

Have a Blessed day guys! It can only get better...

The Natural Man

     Never do real stuffs with the natural man, you'll get burnt in the process.

The natural man is said to be foolish, clueless, obstinate, proud, ignorant and most of all, possess the "I know it all" syndrome. The natural man is not open to change and learning new things. Even in his misfit, he believes help comes from within.

Anchor Scripture: 1 Corinthians 2:14
"But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."

For the natural man to transcend into the next phase,  his vision must first be corrected. Ever wondered why natural men never win (spiritual) battles?

Interestingly, every "spiritual man" emanated from the "natural man," but the former, took intentional steps to exempt himself from "the natural man" status.

Characteristics of the natural man:
1. He is in the habit of justifying his carnally minded statute and antics. He operates by the prompting of his flesh,
2. He does not understand kingdom investments and strategic alliances.
3. Those who "speak in tongues" are mere noise makers to him.
4. He does not believe in tithing and the need to take care of his pastor.
5. He is stingy with his resources. i.e talents, finance, knowledge, etc.
6. He may be rich, but he will never be able to generate wealth.
7. He knows nothing about the operation of grace, faith and love.
8. He is vulnerable and easily manipulated.
9. He is proud and never humble to welcome the new.
10. Over-confidence in his dealings perpetually weighs him down because he fails to put God first and become equally yoked with Him.
11. He is too concerned about religion and doctrines.
12. His foolishness calls for urgent intervention. Don't bother trading words with him, it's only a waste of time until his vision is corrected.
13. He never positively inspires all who come in contact with him.
14. He only craves worldly satisfaction.
15. He is a church goer but never a Christian.

Never do real stuffs with the natural man, you'll get hurt/burnt in the process because his mentality sucks a great deal and you'll never actualize destiny or God's initial plan for your life.

Isolate yourself from the natural man today and receive immeasurable measures of blessings pressed down, shaken together and running over.

Have a Glam day guys!

The Foreigner

Ever wondered why a foreigner possess a new territory and move on to do greater exploits? You'll find out shortly...

A Foreigner is a person from a foreign country.

Foreigners who emerge successful do so, because, they have over time unraveled the secret, mastered the principles of survival and tend to back it up with humility, compassion and thanksgiving (whether manipulated or not).

Citing examples of foreigners who did exploits include the "King Kong" Father Abraham, who left the land of Haran for Canaan where he acquired immense wealth and proceeded to settle in the Oaks of Mamre in Hebron.

Samaritans are typical examples of foreigners. The Samaritans were a racial mixed society with Jewish and Pagan ancestry who faced agonizing stereotype.

Some Samaritans who made a lasting impact include the following;
1. The one "Samaritan" leper out of the ten initial lepers who returned to show gratitude to Jesus. The other nine were Jews. Jews are best known for radicality. They believe they are entitled to controlling every means of production. {Luke 17:11-19}
2. The Samaritan woman by the well whom Jesus asked for water. She questioned His unusual action. *Well, Jesus was an unusual specie of Jew. {John 4:1-26}
3. The Good Samaritan who helped the dying man while the other Jewish priest and the Levite left him to die. {Luke 10:25-37}

Foreigners are subtle yet radical; they are vulnerable yet clever; they are initially perceived as weaklings, yet mature to become threats.

In Nigeria for example, Igbos are known to be greatly involved with industrialization and are ably represented in every part of the world.
 Yorubas are known to be great scholars and excel greatly in every venture they dive into as a result of their unique gifting no matter their location.
 Hausas are known to be their brothers' keeper unlike the other tribes, their religion dominates their cause and instills in them the sense of solidarity wherever they find themselves.

Foreigners do exploits because they elude themselves from the distraction of their native land(s) or country, they remain focused towards desired goals, and they never give up; for they are fighters.

Switch location if the need is entailed, but If your native land is the land where your greener pastures lies, you can train yourself by inculcating the distinguishing qualities of a Foreigner, this way being the best you can be, and becoming Number 1.

Have a Fab day!

Quit Studying!

   Well, don't stop when you are tired, stop when you're done!

Different vocational ventures determine the number of  year(s) of study. First you learn, then, you earn.
No one ever made it to the top without an in-depth study of the choice of trade selected. This vocational venture could be professional or nonprofessional.

It is advised that immediately after study, it is important to head straight to the field (work).

It took Daniel and his companion three years to be indoctrinated into the Babylonian language and the lore of magic and fortunetelling, irrespective of the fact that they possessed great/unique Leadership characteristics that distinguished them from their peers {Peep Daniel 1 for the full account}.

Learning is sowing (investing) and Earning is reaping (profiting).

Ecclesiastes Chapter 3 emphatically states that there is an opportune time to do things, and a right time for everything on the surface of the Earth. It includes a detailed list of the right timing for everything that has life.

Acquire the knowledge you need for a particular venture, afterwards, step out to claim everything you rightfully deserve because there is enough to go round. For studying without putting into practice will go unnoticed, become soar, rot and be gone without a trace.

Have an Amazing day guys!

RESPONSIBILITY


While you remain committed to taking care of your preachers, ensure you take care of yourself  (and all that concerns you) too. Doing both is termed Responsibility.

You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today - Abraham Lincoln *This is deep.

#This is a sensitive topic, and I hope it's not taken out of context. Kindly peep the following:

-- Be generous in all your Dealings; work, finance, kingdom investment, adherence to stipulated rules/commands, etc. "Generous gets it all in the end."  (Psalm 37:22 MSG Translation)

--  Take care of your Preacher. "Give a bonus to leaders who do a good job, especially the ones who work hard at preaching and teaching. Scripture tells us, "Don't muzzle a working ox" A worker deserves his pay. (1 Timothy 5:17 MSG Translation).

-- Care for Self and Family. "For if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever." 1 Timothy 5:8

-- Giving to the Poor and Needy. "The one who is gracious to the poor lends to the LORD, and the LORD will repay him for his good deeds. (Proverbs 19:17).

-- Investment/ Wisdom-filled living. "But divide your investment among many places, for you do not know what risks might lie ahead. (Ecclesiastes 11:2 NLT).

The highlighted points above sums up Biblical economics. All the factors excluding none is termed RESPONSIBILITY.

Are You Responsible?

Have a Meditative day...

Queens Take Risks...

cos overtime, she has mastered the art of risk-taking and has become enviably successful in the venture.

Queens don't sit pretty all day and wait for waves to occur, they make moves to create one. Well, even when they decide to sit pretty with their heads and shoulders raised high, be rest assured that there's a plot yet untold which will work for the overall good of those who will come in contact.

Are you an aspiring Queen or already a Queen in the making? Queen Esther is one mentor to look up to.

She was beautiful; yet spontaneous; She was vulnerable; yet principled, She was dynasty-certified; yet subject-oriented, She was a womb(ed)-man; yet a woman,  She was good-natured; yet obliging, She had insecurities; yet magical,  She was powerful; yet sacrificial, She was meek; yet wisdom-filled, She was a carrier of Grace; yet a dispenser of Grace.
She was divinely-orchestrated to be made Queen for the time of her dispensation.

Anchor Scripture: Esther 4:15-16
"Esther sent back her answer to Mordecai: Go and get all the Jews living in Susa together. Fast for me. Don't eat or drink for three days, either day or night. I and my maids will fast with you. If you will do this, I'll go to the King, even though it's forbidden. If I die, I die."

Which dynasty do you precede over? What exceptional/distinguishing trait do you possess to make your reign outstanding? What are your defense mechanism? Who is your mentor?

You're no Queen if  you take no risk. Queens are like ducks, they paddle relentlessly beneath the surface but look unstressed, unperturbed, and stun ever radiantly upstage. They are ''Messiahs'' in the time of their dispensation.

Are you a Queen?...

Have a GLAMorous day Fam!
