As we all know the world cup is over. A lot of fans were disappointed with there team, while some were surprised at the performance of young players in the tournament. No doubt France deserves the cup. From the beginning of the tournament, they put up a good fight with other teams and conquered.

But that ain’t the story. If you watched the world cup, your eyes and ears will be aware of the young star “Mbappe”. This young lad dream is so inspiring and motivating to give you the assurance that dreams do come true.

Was doing my research and stepped on on a piece about him.

Mbappe and Cristiano Ronaldo is idle

If you are opportune to read this, Don’t give up on your Dream!

Kylian Mbappe was a huge Cristiano Ronaldo fan as a kid and now he’s knocked Lionel Messi out of the World Cup and gone further than his hero!

At 14 years old, Kylian Mbappe was just a boy dreaming about his hero Cristiano Ronaldo.

During the World cup, he put in a masterclass performance to knock out Ronaldo’s biggest rival, Lionel Messi, before his Portuguese idol also fell at the last-16 later that evening.

After two goals against Argentina, Mbappe finds himself progressing further than either of the world’s greatest players, but once upon a time he was just a boy living in a shrine to Ronaldo.

Mbappe grew up as a Real Madrid fan and Cristiano Ronaldo has always been his hero

Moral Lesson:

Little did Mbappe know that just five years later he would help knock his hero’s biggest rival out of the World Cup, and go even further than Ronaldo himself.

You all should keep your head high and never give up on your Hustle.

5 Simple Steps To Re-activate Yourself, If You Work Hard With No Results

Tips for life.

You’ve spent a lot of time, energy, effort and money to achieve your goal.

You’ve even sacrificed your favorite TV shows, shopping, dating, and your sleep. You utterly, wholeheartedly want to succeed.

And yet your results seem insignificant.

It’s frustrating, isn’t it?

But remember this: “Giving up on your goal because of one setback is like slashing your other three tires because you got a flat.”

It’s not the time to give up yet.

Here are 5 simple steps to revive your motivation and keep going.

1) Take a Vacation and Rest

“When all else fails, take a vacation.” – Betty Williams

You have been striving hard for so long. If you feel you can’t go any further, stop, rest, and travel. Detach yourself from seeking for solutions, forget those miseries, and just have fun. Besides refreshing yourself, you may even gain new insights and inspirations.

2) Do Some Revision

“Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.” – John F. Kennedy

Of course you have a target. But it’s easy to lose focus when you’re too busy working on your plans. Revise again – What’s the reason that you want to reach the goal? Write and rewrite it on papers. Then imagine the excitement and contentment when you finally succeed. Keep that fire and march on.

3) Make a Different

“Be stubborn about your goals, and flexible about your methods.” – Anonymous

Don’t just work hard without reflection, you are not a cow. If things don’t turn out well, dwell on other possibilities. You can observe others’ strategies or ask your friends for suggestions. Most importantly, dare to make changes, reflect, and improve again. Continuous trying brings progress.

4) Believe

“If a goal or dream is slow in coming, envision it on a delivery truck, just a wee bit stuck in traffic, but still headed toward you.” – Karen Salmansohn

If you start to doubt your abilities, you have lost half of the battle. This is because you will tend to put less effort, passion, and love to your work. To gain confidence, praise yourself for managing to come this far. You’re halfway there. Don’t worry about failure; just do your best.

5) Be Patience

“The key to everything is patience. You get the chicken by hatching the egg, not by smashing it.” – Arnold H. Glasgow

Understand that great things take time. After all, an oyster needs around 7 years to make a pearl. So don’t feel sorry for yourself, and avoid comparing yourself to other people’s achievements. The truth is that there’s no overnight success. You need to go through this journey filled with challenges, trials, and errors to become smarter and better. Just carry on, persist!

You see, sometimes what you need is just a change of attitude and approach to help you get over the hump and be ready to keep fighting for your goal.

Do you have other tips to pick yourself up? Please share with us in the comments.

10 Wrong Mindsets To Avoid That Traps You

A typical example of this subject is Moses and the Israelites. The Bible says they wandered in the desert for 40 years making an eleven day journey.

Pinterest

According to Joyce Meyer in one of her personal experiences with God in the past, God spoke to my heart and said, “The children of Israel spent forty years in the wilderness because they had a wilderness mentality as a wrong mindset. Like the Israelites, our wrong mindsets can keep us dealing with the same problems, never truly making any progress.

Here are 10 wrong mindsets to avoid…

  1. Everyone else is better off than I am
  2. My future is determined by my past and present
  3. It’s not my fault
  4. It’s too hard
  5. My life is so miserable- I feel sorry for myself
  6. I’m addicted to complaining
  7. Somebody do it for me
  8. I don’t deserve God’s blessings
  9. Don’t make me wait- I deserve everything immediately
  10. I’m going to do it my way or not at all.

Think This: I am unique and special. God loves me, and He has a wonderful, personalized plan for my life.

Romans 12:15; 1 Corinthians 12:12-27; Jeremiah 29:11

Pregnancy Before Marriage: Linda Ikeji

Usually I don’t write on this topic, but it caught my eye after reading an information online.

Daily Post

This is a trending topic in my environment recently. Since last year, a lot of my friends got pregnant before getting married. I was lost in thought thinking about what the Bible says about fornication. But again society got a role to play in this.

The Joy of pregnancy makes a woman enlightened. Her whole perspective about life changes for good. In some cases it’s not all rosy, some leads to abortion and so many other stuffs. But having a baby with a man that still wanna be in your life is a great feeling for both parties.

Anyways back to my discussion…

So my friends are getting married after giving birth to their first child. I know in some parts of the world it’s not a big deal for ladies to get pregnant outside marriage. But in Africa “Nigeria” it’s a konk isuue.”Please you can quote me wrong”. Like I said before it depends on the circumstances of the pregnancy if the woman wants it, the man wants it and they plan to get married. If not it won’t be good news any longer, instead a burden.

The hottest trend right now is that Linda Ikeji is pregnant.. Yipppi!!! Yea am happy for her. Linda is the top blogger in Nigeria, a role model, and humanitarian. The first blogger in Nigeria, formerly single, recently engaged, now pregnant. I must say, she got it all.

A lot of questions have been buzzing about peeps criticizing her. But what will people won’t say or do. She’s 36, she always wanna be a mum and God bless her with one. Even outside wedlock, she’s gratetful.

What am trying to say is that God’s grace is so sufficient and truly His time is the best. A lot of women are married without kids, a lot got pregnant and abandoned, a lot because of shame went for abortion, while some experience miscarriage. What can we say about this God??? He works in mysterious ways.

Am not implying or advising to get pregnant before marriage, it’s a decision if you feel you can handle it.

Congratulations Linda Ikeji..

Why People Reject Themselves

It would be easy to accept ourselves if we had no flaws. But we do have flaws. The number reason most people reject themselves is because of their weaknesses and mistakes. They can’t separate their “who” from their “do”, and consequently they carry shame and reproach from the past. They focus so much on their faults that they can’t see their strengths.Image result for rejection

After a seminar from a powerful woman of God, a woman said, “I had so much strife in my life that there was not one area or relationship that was not strife filled and strife controlled”. She went on to say that everything she did was motivated by and done with strife. She was continually disappointed with herself and judging and criticizing herself. She had contempt for all her faults and weaknesses, and she had never been able to see her strengths. Because she rejected herself, she rejected all the abilities God had given her. She felt terrible about who she was and was constantly striving to be better.

She said that she had heard people speak of the peace that passes understanding, but she had never understood what they meant until she heard the powerful message of the woman of God on strife. When she learned that God didn’t count her weaknesses and flaws against her, she experienced peace for the first time in her life.

We all have some strengths and weaknesses. The time  read the story of this lady, it taught me a lot about the peace of God, and also we are not meant to be perfect because we are all born to sin. Only by the sacrificial blood of Jesus that saved us. Uncle Paul testified: I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ may rest upon me. (2 Corinthians 12:9).

Uncle Paul wrestled with his weaknesses, but he learned that Christ’s strength and grace would be sufficient. If we want to learn to accept ourselves, this is essential for us to do as well. We need to know who we are, see our weaknesses as Jesus sees them, know where to lean, and beware of judging others- also beware of their judgments of us. Most of all, we need to live in the truth of our righteousness.

N:B When that mood comes were you feel you are no good and your weaknesses are too much for Jesus to forgive you, or for you to be blessed. Just look at Jesus and not what people will say or judge your actions. Stay focused on Jesus and be motivated to move on pass your weaknesses and see your strength more.

The fictional character in this article “woman of God” is Joyce Meyer.

There’s Always Hope For A Second Chance

I had a lousy/ rugged start in my life. I used to be the black sheep of my family. I never did drugs nor addicted to alcohol. But I kinda joined a gang group, was never serious with my studies, I stole a lot from my parents to satisfy my needs. There was even a time when I never knew the meaning of tithe, my mum kept some money in an envelope inside her wardrobe. I will go and remove bit by bit to but clothes, movies, audio cd and so on. When my pot was filled up and I was nabbed, that was when I knew the meaning of tithe and how valuable and important it is. I lied a lot also back then, in any situation I can escape and walk free. Even friends come to me for lies to give their parents so they won’t be beaten or grounded. 🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂 I laugh whenever I remember those days. However, God not only changed me, I am gradually walking in the path of righteousness because am still a work in progress. Am a different guy entirely now 🕺💃🕺💃 this God is too much.

He made my new life in Him better than I ever could have imagined. It’s been a long journey I must say, but now I can bodly say that I love my life and I’m determined to have a great finish.

God’s word is filled with examples of people who were given a fresh start..

Remember Rahab the harlot was rescued and given a new name in the bloodline of Christ.

Repost: A Drum Major For Peace (Speech)

The following words were part of a sermon given by Dr. Martin Luther King at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia, on February 4, 1968.

I know a man — and I just want to talk about him a minute, and maybe you will discover who I’m talking about as I go down the way (Yeah) because he was a great one. And he just went about serving. He was born in an obscure village, (Yes, sir) the child of a poor peasant woman. And then he grew up in still another obscure village, where he worked as a carpenter until he was thirty years old. (Amen) Then for three years, he just got on his feet, and he was an itinerant preacher. And he went about doing some things. He didn’t have much. He never wrote a book. He never held an office. He never had a family. (Yes) He never owned a house. He never went to college. He never visited a big city. He never went two hundred miles from where he was born. He did none of the usual things that the world would associate with greatness. He had no credentials but himself.

He was only thirty-three when the tide of public opinion turned against him. They called him a rabble-rouser. They called him a troublemaker. They said he was an agitator. (Glory to God) He practiced civil disobedience; he broke injunctions. And so he was turned over to his enemies and went through the mockery of a trial. And the irony of it all is that his friends turned him over to them. (Amen) One of his closest friends denied him. Another of his friends turned him over to his enemies. And while he was dying, the people who killed him gambled for his clothing, the only possession that he had in the world. (Lord help him) When he was dead he was buried in a borrowed tomb, through the pity of a friend.

Nineteen centuries have come and gone and today he stands as the most influential figure that ever entered human history. All of the armies that ever marched, all the navies that ever sailed, all the parliaments that ever sat, and all the kings that ever reigned put together (Yes) have not affected the life of man on this earth (Amen) as much as that one solitary life. His name may be a familiar one. (Jesus) But today I can hear them talking about him. Every now and then somebody says, “He’s King of Kings.” (Yes) And again I can hear somebody saying, “He’s Lord of Lords.” Somewhere else I can hear somebody saying, “In Christ there is no East nor West.” (Yes) And then they go on and talk about, “In Him there’s no North and South, but one great Fellowship of Love throughout the whole wide world.” He didn’t have anything. (Amen) He just went around serving and doing good.

This morning, you can be on his right hand and his left hand if you serve. (Amen) It’s the only way in.

Every now and then I guess we all think realistically (Yes, sir) about that day when we will be victimized with what is life’s final common denominator—that something that we call death. We all think about it. And every now and then I think about my own death and I think about my own funeral. And I don’t think of it in a morbid sense. And every now and then I ask myself, “What is it that I would want said?” And I leave the word to you this morning.

If any of you are around when I have to meet my day, I don’t want a long funeral. And if you get somebody to deliver the eulogy, tell them not to talk too long. (Yes) And every now and then I wonder what I want them to say. Tell them not to mention that I have a Nobel Peace Prize—that isn’t important. Tell them not to mention that I have three or four hundred other awards—that’s not important. Tell them not to mention where I went to school. (Yes)

I’d like somebody to mention that day that Martin Luther King, Jr., tried to give his life serving others. (Yes)

I’d like for somebody to say that day that Martin Luther King, Jr., tried to love somebody.

I want you to say that day that I tried to be right on the war question. (Amen)

I want you to be able to say that day that I did try to feed the hungry. (Yes)

And I want you to be able to say that day that I did try in my life to clothe those who were naked. (Yes)

I want you to say on that day that I did try in my life to visit those who were in prison. (Lord)

I want you to say that I tried to love and serve humanity. (Yes)

Yes, if you want to say that I was a drum major, say that I was a drum major for justice. (Amen) Say that I was a drum major for peace. (Yes) I was a drum major for righteousness. And all of the other shallow things will not matter. (Yes) I won’t have any money to leave behind. I won’t have the fine and luxurious things of life to leave behind. But I just want to leave a committed life behind. (Amen) And that’s all I want to say.

“Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don’t have to know about Plato and Aristotle to serve. You don’t have to know Einstein’s theory of relativity to serve. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love. And you can be that servant.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

God With Us

The man whispered, “God, speak to me”
And a meadowlark sang.
But, the man did not hear.

So the man yelled, “God, speak to me”
And the thunder rolled across the sky.

But, the man did not listen. The man looked around and said,
“God let me see you.”
And a star shined brightly.
But the man did not see.

And, the man shouted, “God show me a miracle.”
And, a life was born.
But, the man did not notice.

So, the man cried out in despair, “Touch me God, and let me know you are here.”
Whereupon, God reached down and touched the man.
But, the man brushed the butterfly away and walked on.

I found this to be a great reminder that God is always around us in the little and simple things that we take for granted even in our electronic age, so I would like to add one more:

The man cried, “God, I need your help!”
And an e-mail arrived reaching out with good news and encouragement.
But, the man deleted it and continued crying…

Don’t miss out on a blessing because it isn’t packaged the way that you expect.

Making Jesus Famous: Seven Reasons to Not Fear Sharing Your Faith #evangelism

The word “ evangelism ” sends a shiver down the spine of many Christians.

This month is still a month of spreading the word, winning new souls, and making Jesus famous. Have shared some of the experiences have had that Jesus turned my situation to Joy. Let’s talk to our neighbours, colleagues at work or school, a passer by, or that person you always buy things from. This is a month of Evangelism.

“I won’t know what to say.” “I want to get to know the person better.” “They seem like they wouldn’t be open to the gospel.” “Evangelism is not my spiritual gift.”

There are many common excuses people use for not following the commands of Scripture to share the gospel (Matthew 28:16-20; Mark 16:15).

Here are some truths from Scripture that will encourage you to take a step outside your comfort zone and into the exciting world of sharing your faith in Christ:

1. It is by the power of God that people are saved.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes… (Romans 1:16)
Knowing that people are saved only through the power of God, and not by human effort or ability, should provide comfort for those seeking to make a kingdom-difference. This also takes the pressure off when people are not responding the way we want because we know we are not responsible for the salvation of a particular person, but God is.

2. When you share your faith, you gain a deeper understanding of Christ.
When we testify to others how God saved us from sin and wrath, how he has made us a new creation in Christ, and how has filled us with joy and peace by the Holy Spirit, we are reminded of God’s awesome work in our lives. This deepens our love and understanding of Christ.
In Philemon 6 the Apostle Paul says to Philemon, “I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ” (NIV).

3. Even Jesus was rejected.
Success in evangelism is measured not in the outcome, but in your obedience to the command of Christ. The story of the Jesus and the rich young ruler in Matthew 19:16-30 gives a great picture of this. The young man approached Jesus, interested in hearing about how to get to heaven.
You would think that any encounter with Jesus, the Son of God who has power to grant saving faith, would have been a sure-fire conversion. This was not the case.

After Jesus led him through the law (which shows us our sin and need for the Savior) and told him the cost of discipleship, we are told the young man went away sorrowful.

4. When we are rejected, we are promised heavenly rewards.
Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. (Matthew 5:11-12)
Evangelist Mark Cahill calls all three potential witnessing outcomes a “win”:
If the person comes to Christ, that is an obvious win.

If they seem interested but don’t come to Christ, you plant seeds that God could water and grow in the future, which is another win.

If they reject you, you get heavenly rewards, which is definitely a win!
Not only is being rejected not bad, but we receive heavenly rewards when we are rejected.

5. The Holy Spirit will give you words.
In Luke 12, Jesus talks to his followers about being a witness. Verses 11 and 12 should be a comfort:

And when they bring you before the synagogues and the rulers and the authorities, do not be anxious about how you should defend yourself or what you should say, for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.

If God can speak through donkeys like he did in Numbers 22:28, people should be no problem for him! Take him at his word!

6. Our job is to plant seeds or water the soil. God takes care of the growth.
Just like a gardener cannot force seeds to spring forth with life merely by his will, evangelists cannot force people to respond to the message of Christ by their will. God is the one who gives life both physically and spiritually.

We should take the opportunities we are given to plant seeds by sharing the gospel and to water seeds already planted, but ultimately God will help the person grow.

7. God will go with you.
After he gave the Great Commission to go and make disciples in Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus did not leave his disciples alone but said, “Behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age” (v. 20). Going out on your own can be a frightening thing, but that is never the experience of the Christian.

Christ promises to always be with you.
Jesus said, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few” (Matthew 9:37). Are you going to be a laborer, someone willing to take a step of faith and love to share the message of the gospel?

Weakness or Strength #inspiration #motivation

Sometimes our biggest weakness can become our biggest strength. Take, for example, the story of one 10-year-old boy who decided to study Judo despite the fact that he had lost his left arm in a devastating car accident.


The boy began lessons with an old Japanese Judo master. The boy was doing well, so he couldn’t understand why, after three months of training the master had taught him only one move.
“Sensei,” the boy finally said, “Shouldn’t I be learning more moves?”
“This is the only move you know, but this is the only move you’ll ever need to know.” – the sensei replied.
Not quite understanding, but believing in his teacher, the boy kept training.
Several months later, the sensei took the boy to his first tournament. Surprising himself, the boy easily won his first two matches. The third match proved to be more difficult, but after some time, his opponent became impatient and charged; the boy deftly used his one move to win the match. Still amazed by his success, the boy was now in the finals.
This time, his opponent was bigger, stronger, and more experienced. For a while, the boy appeared to be overmatched. Concerned that the boy might get hurt, the referee called a time-out. He was about to stop the match when the sensei intervened.
“No,” the sensei insisted, “Let him continue.”
Soon after the match resumed, his opponent made a critical mistake: he dropped his guard. Instantly, the boy used his move to pin him. The boy had won the match and the tournament. He was the champion.
On the way home, the boy and sensei reviewed every move in each and every match. Then the boy summoned the courage to ask what was really on his mind.
“Sensei, how did I win the tournament with only one move?”
“You won for two reasons,” the sensei answered. “First, you’ve almost mastered one of the most difficult throws in all of judo. And second, the only known defense for that move is for your opponent to grap your left arm.”
The boy’s biggest weakness had become his biggest strength.

Trust In Him At All Times

Whenever you think your life is no where to be found, confused, and distributed on how life is treating you so badly. It is hard to share the secrets of your hearts with anyone. We want to keep our secrets, failings, embarrassments, and sins hidden. We fear that others would reject us and we would shame ourselves if anyone knee the secret sludge in our hearts. 

But hidden sin is only hidden from us. It is not hidden from our father. Hidden sin festers in our hearts and drives a wedge between us and the God who would forgive us and empower us to triumph over it. If only we would pour out our hearts to Him knowing that He longs to be our refuge. 

Frustration 

I learnt a valuable lesson yesterday reading “if not for the grace of God ” by Joyce Meyer. 

I learnt that we can’t do anything in our power to achieve what we want. I also learnt that when you focus your energy and effort inti something that is doomed to failure, the only possible result is frustration. And what do we do when we frustrated, we keep up trying harder which only produces more frustration. 

We don’t attempt anything without asking for God’s help. We lean on Him the whole way through each project. We maintain an attitude that says, “Apart from Him, I can do nothing”

If you are frustrated about timing, lean to pray with the psalmist, my times are in your hands… (Psalm 31:15).

Sometimes when I feel my time is wasted in a particular circumstance, either waiting to see the doctor, waiting to get an alert from the bank, bad electricity, no water and so on…  Yea am not perfect and just human, I get frustrated and disgusted but after reading that inspiring book from Joyce, it changed my perspective to the way I handle my mood when frustrated. 

Trust In The Lord And Do Good


Having a place of permanence in the middle of life’s uncertainties and having the assurance of God’s provision are based on two very clear principles: trusting in the lord and doing good to others. When we live by those two commitments, we learn to friend upon God in fresh new ways that bring us refreshment, hope, and new joy.
