It's Okay To Be Direct, But It's Not Okay To Be Too Direct




A particular lady was new in town and desperately needed to obtain pictures to cover a story for her blog post, but had no friend capable of helping her.
She attended a church programme and soon spotted a young "familiar" man that seemed capable of having access to the pictures she wanted. The young man seemed approachable (she thought men were more approachable than female), hence, she walked up to him when the programme ended.

After introducing herself to him, she politely asked for his complementary card. He couldn't access his, so this young lady handed hers over to him, reminding him not to fail her for she urgently needed to talk with him.

The next day, he called her up. She opened up to him and he provided the solution she needed. He told her where to lift the supposed pictures from.
Excited that her need was finally met. she thanked him gracefully.

Later that day, the young man  chatted her up on ''WhatsApp''. The young lady  was thrilled that she finally made a new friend in town (remember she was new in town). Their conversation was going great until he asked, "What do you want from me? We're both mature adults and I can accept anything." Confused on the next reply to give, she paused for a bit and soon decoded what his question meant. *The young man was carnally minded.

Not trying to react in a harsh way, she politely discontinued the conversation without his notice.

Which relationship have you destroyed because of the wrong approach? Wisdom connotes that we should never be in a hurry to conclude because our perception maybe wrong!

{Proverbs 13:16}
"Wise people think before they act; fools don't-and even brag about their foolishness."

Give it time. Think it through. Don't be in a hurry to react foolishly.

It's okay to be direct, but it's not okay to be too direct.

Have a Fab day Fam!

Fake Testimony


If it happened in the church of old, expect its occurrence to skyrocket in our present age. 

God frowns at fake testimonies, hence, sanctions attached to the act are upheld.

Anchor Scripture: {Proverbs 19:5}
"A false witness will not go unpunished and whoever pours out lies will not go free." 

People take up the distasteful role of giving fake testimonies either because they are looking for cheap popularity, trying to please the preacher who "prophesied'' healing, or being cajoled by a "minister" to put up an act that'll attract increased number of gullible worshipers to his end.

Fake testimonies have become the order of the day in most churches. The medium has been used to incite entertainment, publicize their ministry and keep people in bondage.

Increase in fake testimonies is linked with the increased number of fake preachers. 

1John 1:1- "Beloved, don't believe everything you hear. Carefully weigh and examine what people tell you. Not everyone who talks about God comes from God. There are a lot of lying loose preaches in the world."

The above warning from St.John explains it all.

#Don't believe everything you hear or see, carefully examine the actions while retaining cautiousness. Be deliberate about it. Only then will you retain your sanity and understand how God operates.

Say No To Fake Testimonies!

Have an Amazing week ahead.

Me In Christ, You In Christ, & Christ In Us


"Wherever there is a Me, there's a Christ."- Ella Hillz

Denouncing stereotype, class distinction is ultimatum, for everyone you meet is a Body of Christ.

Anchor Scripture: {Matthew 25:35-40}New International Version (NIV)
35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
{vs 41-46} ''Then he will also to those on the left hand, 'Depart from Me, you cursed, into everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: 'For I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave me no drink; 'I was  a stranger and you did not take me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.'
''Then, they also will answer Him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?'
''Then, He will answer them, saying, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.'
''And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.'
The above Anchor Scripture edifies the intricately interwoven concept of Me in Christ, You In Christ, and Christ in Us.

Our life should be reflection of Christ and evidenced by all who come across us.

Sowing into our family, Church, and to the poor without suffering any tier is the ideal way to live. It is the ideal way of glorifying God.
Family, first. Next, the Church and the needy. Then, the other list can follow suit.

Do not be deceived. God isn't coming down to the surface of the Earth to sort you out or receive any gift from you. He sends a Christ(person) to bless you. In the same vain, because the devil is in the habit of manipulating God's work,  he sends a devil(person) as well, to revert God's blessing into a curse. 
God so kind recognizes the schemes of the devil and sends the Holy Spirit to counsel, console and teach us new and impossible ways to succeed and over throne every devilish antic.

Everyone you meet is an image of Christ, Carrier of Christ and a Product of Christ. God didn't make us all the same, we each reflect a little of Him, for He has called us by name and each one is special to Him.

Whatever you do to your neighbour, You do to Christ, for we reside in Christ and He resides in us. 

Have a Swell day!

The Tree Of Life


What could be have been so special about the tree of life?

Do you know that Adam and Eve's disobedience wasn't the root cause of their exit from the garden of Eden? God's insecurity that Adam and Eve will eventually locate the Tree-of-Life and eat from it was the root cause.

Anchor Scripture: {Genesis 3:22}
"God said, "The man has become like one of us, capable of knowing everything ranging from the good to evil. What if he now should reach out and take fruit from the Tree-of-Life and eat, and live forever? Never-This cannot happen!''

Ab initio, God's intent for the creation of man wasn't to make him last on the surface of the Earth forever, He created man to entertain Him during His leisure hours. Man's lifespan had been predestined by God before their fall. Eating from the Tree of Life was capable of making man last forever, reason why God pulled the trigger by sending them off as outcasts. 

Asides longevity, ever thought of other special composition of the Tree of Life? Still thinking...

Have a Fruit-Bearing-Day Fam!

Fix Your Exhaust System



The exhaust system is a piping used to guide the reaction of exhaust gases away from a controlled combustion inside an engine or stove. It is the bowel system of a vehicle that aids in the discharge its waste. When it is not efficiently maintained, it goes bad, puts the vehicle at risk and causes harm to others.

Are we messing up the lives of others because of our own mess? It's time to fix our exhaust system. Inconveniencing others wouldn't change your status, rather, it'll create an even more tensed atmosphere.

Anchor Scripture: Genesis 3:12
"Then the man said, the woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate."

Adam was so quick to blame Eve, even though they both received the divine instruction not to eat out of the forbidden tree.
Would God had had a change of heart if he owned up for his mistake and apologized? Just maybe...

Your disappointment shouldn't be a stumbling block to your neighbour's appointment, your dissatisfaction shouldn't alter another's satisfaction, your malpractice shouldn't get in the way of your colleague's practice, your impatience shouldn't terminate another's patience, your indiscipline shouldn't put another's discipline in the line.

It's time to own up, take responsibility and fix that exhaust system of yours. No one deserves to be wrongfully punished for your shortcomings, No one deserves to suffer from your leaking exhaust.

Have a Gracious day!

And The Greatest: LOVE

Once upon a time, there lived three beautiful coy mistresses named Faith, Hope and love. Faith was a War-goddess who fought and won all her battles, Hope was a renowned Psychologist who mastered the waiting game technique and attained all she ever craved or desired, but Love held no heroic title which made her unique, for she stood out among her peers.

Love was Kind

She was Patient

She was Prudent

She was Security

She was Motivation

She was Solution

She was Powerful

She was Passion

She was Hardworking

She was Impartial

She was Consistent

She was Terrific

She was Magical

She was Exhilarating

She was Obedient

She was Respectful

She was Charitable

She was Meek

She was Wisdom

She was Subtle

She was Principled

She was Divine

She was Contagious

She was Disciplined

She was Righteous

She was Admiralty

She was Ambitious

She was Spontaneous

She was Miraculous

She was Royalty

She was Answer

She was Detailed

She was Perfection

...all her traits soon distinguished her from Faith and Hope, her childlike simplicity caught the attention of many, and she was crowned the Greatest Coy Mistress ever lived.

# Be Love, Do Love and Live Love

Have a LOVEly day!  *winks

Are You Walking In Holistic Obedience?




Walking in obedience is the only requirement for a next (divine orchestrated) level. It should be intentional, deliberate or planned.

It is true that nothing moves until you move, but let me quickly add, nothing moves in the right dimension until you make the right moves.

If God has put a vision in you, adhere to it and run with it. Could it be that your crooked path is not been made smooth amidst the many prayers because of sheer disobedience?

Are you called to the Ministry, Politics, Educational Sector, Media, Fashion and Lifestyle Department but still letting it sly ? Obey that still subtle reoccurring voice in your head and just go for it!

Provision is made available at your place of assignment- Dr. Mike Murdock 
{Anchor Scripture: 1Samuel 15}
Vs 3:“Go and attack the Amalekites! Destroy them and all their possessions. Don’t have any pity. Kill their men, women, children, and even their babies. Slaughter their cattle, sheep, camels, and donkeys. 

vs 7- 9: "And Saul attacked the Amalekites from Havilah[b] to Shur, which is just east of Egypt. Every Amalekite was killed except King Agag. Saul and his army let Agag live, and they also spared the best sheep and cattle. They didn’t want to destroy anything of value, so they only killed the animals that were worthless or weak.

King Saul's reign ended immediately after he disobeyed God. Disobedience could be very costly.

Also, it is not enough to be obedient, stepping out in time to execute God's instruction is key. Jonah learnt his lesson in the belly of the big fish.

Eliminate delay, procrastination, favouritism, cynicism, and outright disobedience to will of The Most High God and walk in Holistic Obedience. 


Have a Productive day!

Use The Stairs!



There's is no shortcut to success, process amounts to progress.

We all know that baby steps makes giant step, but sometimes, the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of alifetime. Tip toe if you want, but take consistent steps.

My mum used to term herself "cut and paste" because of her not-so-grounded foundation, even though she thrived so hard to exempt I and my siblings from the chain, she never tried upgrading herself each time an opportunity came.
Did it work in her favour? Yes it did! She was undeniably successful in her career path even in her insecurities.

{Anchor Scripture: 1Corinthians9:24} NKJV
"Do you know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it."

There is no shortcut to growth, there is no shortcut to development, and there is no shortcut to increase. Growth is eminent even though the process is silent.

Also, there is no such thing as accidental success, but there are such things as strategic alliances.

David prepared to become King of Israel even though his preparation was done unconsciously.

Did you that he once killed a lion with his bare hands long before he confronted Goliath the Philistine and put him in his place? 
Did you know that David never lost in any battle?
 The number of battles he fought, were the number of victories he accrued. All he amounted to become didn't spring up from his comfort zone, it sprang up from his combat zone.

Training hard, working smart and creatively building up is rewarding...

Use The Stairs!
