Welcome To The Month Of Divine Favour And Breakthrough

A donkey was tied to a tree. A demon came and released him. The donkey entered the field of a farmer and began to eat everything. The farmer’s wife saw the donkey and, afraid that it would destroy the farm, took the rifle and killed him.The donkey’s owner saw the dead donkey, got angry, and also took his rifle and fired at the woman, killing her. When the farmer got home and saw that his wife was dead, he killed the donkey’s owner.The donkey owner’s sons seeing their dead father, burned the farmers field. The farmer in retaliation killed them.When they asked the demon what he had done, he said:- “I did nothing, I just released the donkey.”Do you get it? The devil doesn’t have power to do much, but one simple thing he does triggers the evil intents of men’s hearts to harm one another. So, let’s think before seeking revenge! Be careful with your heart, because many times, the only thing the devil does is “release the donkey”

Happy New Month and Do have a great week ahead.

Good To Be Back After a Long Break

Good day,

It is good to be back after 3 months of not posting as always. I was privileged to be the handler of one of the housemates in the just concluded Big Brother Naija 2019. This was a great experience for me to be able to learn more about Public relations, and also how to manage my temper and character towards people. In the space of 3 months, I lost my job, but never will i fret knowing God has opened a better door for me again.

Also, the Lord blessed my home with an handsome baby boy, who looks so much like his dad😁 Am delighted to share this with you fam, because I know your prayers will go a long way for me and my family.

Am happy to be back, to do what I do best by inspiring and motivating people around. I really miss you guys!

I hope have not gotten rusty though 😄😂

Have a wonderful, fulfilled day guys.

The Benefit Of Believing God

It’s a wonderful thing that God has done for us to be able to look at a negative thing in a positive way and actually say, “You cannot defeat me because God is on my side.”

I want to have a good attitude because that’s what will glorify God. He has promised that if we will do three simple things—continue to pray, to love Him, and to want His will—that all things will work together for our good (see Romans 8:28). That’s a 100 percent, ironclad guarantee that no matter how messy life gets, God will make good out of it. If you want victory in your life, all you have to do is adopt a lifestyle of thanksgiving.

If you can manage to be thankful in every situation, really believing that God is working everything out for your good, you will end up with the victory every single time.

Things You Forgot To Thank Yourself For

Things You Forgot To Thank Yourself For

We’re always thanking our friends and family for their support and the incredible things they do for us but we sometimes forget that we should thank ourselves as well for the things we go through and how at certain times we make it completely on our own. Here are some of the things you should thank yourself for:

1. For trying to be a better person. Thank yourself for trying to be a better friend, or a better partner or better to your parents. Thank yourself for going out of your way to help someone. Thank yourself for going the extra mile for a friend who truly needed your support.

2. For not giving up. During your finals, during stressful work weeks and during difficult times. Thank yourself for pulling yourself together and enduring the anxiety and the pain that you had to go through. Thank yourself for making it out of the storm in one piece.

3. For taking care of yourself. Thank yourself for trying to take care of yourself first before you can take care of others. Thank yourself for the times you had to focus on yourself and did a great job. Thank yourself for understanding that you have to always work on yourself because this is the person you will truly live with forever.

4. For trying to achieve your dreams even if they didn’t happen yet. Thank yourself for trying to go to school again, for trying to ask for a raise, for trying to look for another job, for trying to move to a new country. Thank yourself for the awareness you have that you need to dream bigger and do better.

5. For letting someone you loved go. Thank yourself for letting them be, for moving on even when it was hard, for trying to forget them when you didn’t want to and for doing your best not to contact them when it was all you ever wanted. Thank yourself for protecting your own heart.

6. For the moments of weakness. Thank yourself for giving yourself permission to eat that cheeseburger or skip the gym for a few weeks. Thank yourself for telling someone how you truly felt. Thank yourself for knowing that you are not perfect but there are perfect moments where you just have to be unapologetically you.

7. For making mistakes. Thank yourself for the decisions that were not so great, it means you’re learning, it means you’re evolving and it means you’re growing wiser and stronger. Thank yourself for not allowing your mistakes to define you.

8. For your kindness. Thank yourself for doing something selflessly, for giving something without expecting anything in return, for sharing your experiences or stories with people who could benefit from it and for being kind to yourself when the world is being hard on you.

9. For embracing the chaos of life. Thank yourself for keeping a smile on your face when you’re sad, for waking up and participating in life when you feel the weight of the world crashing down on you, for going out when all you want to do is stay home and for believing that things will get better even though you’re not sure. Thank yourself for trying to live your life – no matter how unpredictable and messy it can be.

10. For all the things you do that make you proud. For the little things and the big things. For the things that make you happy and the things that make you look forward to tomorrow. For the beautiful things you do that go unnoticed, for the sincere prayers you say to the ones you love, for the compromises you make, for the risky chances you take and for the silly things you do to make people smile. Thank yourself for any moment that made you grateful to be alive and made you love yourself a little bit more.

Life as they say is not easy. But each day you try your best to make it more suitable and easy for yourselves. Don’t forget to thank yourself each day for not giving up on life.

Hurray! Motivated And Free Is One Today

Am so happy with my achievement so far. I never regretted nor felt bad to start what I believed was good for me, and how the Grace and love of God saved me from the wilderness.

I used to be an entertainment blogger with prospects. I was kinda popular and I had business coming in bit by bit. But when I lost my job, I couldn’t cope with my bills, my world started crumbling. The business I had coming suddenly stopped. I started praying and fasting asking God for directions and new doors to start opening for me.

After wandering and spending most of my life in the wilderness filled with depression, lost, unmotivated, anxiety, and hate, the Lord saved and delivered me. I made a promise to God to share the message of not giving. To help others using this blog as a tool to speak and reach out to those who are depressed, not motivated or inspired. I was scared to start at the beginning, but eventually I did. I never believed this blog will ever come into existence nor go this far. It never came to my mind I was going to be helping one or two people all over the world. I never knew I was going to have good mentors and fellow motivational and inspiring bloggers on this platform. Truly nothing is ever late to those who wait patiently on the Lord.

My blog is a year older today. Am happy am not where I used to be, am grateful for where I am right now as I move higher by the Grace of God.

Dear God, Thank You For Everything

I am writing this for anyone who is feeling lost, desperate, sad, angry or heart broken. Someone who is going through a lot of hardships or feels betrayed by the world, I would like them to know that you are the answer and the only guidance.

That they don’t have to look outside or find someone else to heal them, all they have to do is look up and talk to you or just look for you inside their hearts.

This is the only way to deal with hardships and deal with life.

Thank you for always being there and for reassuring me that no matter what, I will never be alone.

The More Difficult Life Is, The More We Appreciate God’s Forgiveness and Grace: Williams Story

I have been thinking about all that GOD has done for me. I have no words to adequately express the love and the appreciation I owe to GOD. To whom much is forgiven, much is required. GOD help me to honor You in all that I do.

No matter what we’ve been through in life, no matter what had happened in the past, no matter what we’ve done and think it’s in for given, we should always look up to God, because God is love. Here is Williams story….

Why I am a Christian

I was a child of rape,
Fatherless,
Unloved by a mother, not wanted, neglected, beaten, burned and abandoned,
Fostered and then adopted by those who did not cherish nor protect,
Molested, raped and shamed,
Told was a mistake, no good, would never amount to anything,
Cursed, kicked, slapped, whipped, beaten,
Learned by example that alcohol and drugs would numb the pain,
Runaway,
Bullied, beat up, drug overdose and left for dead,
Hospitalized, juvenile incarceration, defamation,
Hopeless, angry and alone,
Crimes led to prison,
Attempted rapes, countless fights, stabbed repeatedly, and in isolation hatred consumed,
Unwelcome, homeless and hungry,
Never begged, but ate out of dumpsters and occasionally worked for food or cash,
An object of another’s deviant sexual behavior, who were beaten and money taken,
Alcohol warmed on cold nights,
Lonely women in bars were nothing more than a bed to sleep in,
Uncaring, indifferent, selfish, self-loathsome,
Attempted suicide, and angry that even death evaded me,
Immersed in the bar-tend culture,
A stripper, an escort, drug dealer, a player,
Woke up high, went to bed drunk, every day for the next twenty years,
Mean, calloused, vile and vulgar defines the man I had become.

Then the unexpected happened!

GOD graciously revealed the truth of Christ’s redeeming work on the cross of Calvary to save a wretch like me. So real was GOD’s presence as tears of joy washed away a lifetime of anger and pain. Gone was the guilt of my sin against GOD. Knowing that by accepting Jesus as my Savior and LORD, GOD had declared me righteous.

Nothing in my past had power over me anymore. It was then that I realized why GOD chose me. I know hurt. I know pain. I know intimately the hopelessness felt by all people today. But most importantly, I know that GOD can save. What I did, I no longer do. I’m not without sin, but, the sins I used to love I now hate. When I am wrong I am quick to ask for forgiveness. And shockingly, GOD has birthed in me a sincere concern for the needs people have, and the urgency for their eternal salvation. I am becoming a very different person, and this is my testimony to the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

It is never too late for God. If you know God has done so much for you in anyway and you feel to share your story. You can be anonymous or can reveal your identity, whichever way we will respect your decision.

If you want to share your story, send via mail:

Remember Where You Are Today Is Not The Final Place

Satan visited me and asked me: Asking “How far?..

I told him: “I thank God for everything…”
He laughed me to scorn..
He said what on earth shld I thank God for?… He showed me my mates who are living inside mansions, and I said hahaaa and I showed him my mates who are also inside d grave… He showed me some of my mates who are inside d costliest cars in town…

I also showed him some of my mates who are inside d costliest caskets in town…
He showed me d fat bank account of some of my friends… And I showed him d hospital bills of some others who are terribly sick…

He took me to boutiques, to show me those who are dressed with d most expensive designer clothings …

I took him to d prisons and cells scattered all
over d country..and I showed him guys who were accused innocently who have been there for many years…Even their loved ones has forgotten dem there…

Satan felt broken and wanted to leave me alone… But i told him to follow me to just one place… I took him to d mortuary and I now showed him many of my mates who are lying down there naked and dead …
He could not say anything again…
He left me and ran away…

Friends, don’t let anything get u depressed…u are not a mistake,u are not an accident no matter what has happened to u or how bad u think u are faring in life…
There is always something God is doing in ur life that ur enemy are envying….

U can’t withdraw ur own money from ur bank without ur ATM card or bank slip…
The Bible said that with joy we shall DRAW from d wells of salvation…

There are many things to draw from God…and thank him still for in ur life…JOY is ur ATM card, Without JOY,u will draw nothing…

That is why Nehemiah, in d midst of battles, he was able to say: “The joy of d Lord is my
strength…”

Beloved God might not have done everything…

But he has done many things…
If only u know how much evil and shame that the Lord has spared you from in the past 3 months you will appreciate God for what you are today…

To him that is joined to the living, there is
hope….For a living dog is better than a dead lion.

Be thoughtful, be thankful…
David understood this and he said…
“If it has not been the Lord who was on our side, they would have swallowed me up quick when their anger was kindled against us… But our souls as a bird has escaped the snare of d fowler…”

Today, if u are really grateful just share this chat and let others know that its true that God has shamed the devil in his/her life.

Remember what u are today is not the
final…..God is preparing something bigger
always……Rejoice!!!..

10 Easter Quotes: He Is Risen

The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances.

Easter is the demonstration of God that life is essentially spiritual and timeless.?

Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in spring-time.

The story of Easter is the story of God’s wonderful window of divine surprise.

We live and die; Christ died and lived!

Easter is a time to rejoice, be thankful, be assured that all is forgiven so life extends beyond the soil of earth.

Earth’s saddest day and gladdest day were just three days apart.

The joyful news that He is risen does not change the contemporary world. Still before us lie work, discipline, sacrifice. But the fact of Easter gives us the spiritual power to do the work, accept the discipline, and make the sacrifice.

The great gift of Easter is hope – Christian hope which makes us have that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake.

A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act.

Reflection Time

There was a bird who lived in a desert, very sick, no feathers, nothing to eat and drink, no shelter to live in.

One day a dove was passing by, so the sick unhappy bird stopped the dove and inquired, “where are you going?” The dove replied ” I am going to heaven”.

So the sick bird said “Please find out for me, when my suffering will come to an end?”
The dove said, “Sure, I will.” and bid a good bye to the sick bird.

The dove reached heaven and shared the message of the sick bird with the angel incharge at the entrance gate.

The angel said, “For the next seven years of its life the bird has to suffer like this, no happiness till then.”

The dove said, “When the sick bird hears this he will get disheartened. could you suggest any solution for this.”

The Angel replied, “Tell him to recite this verse ” *Thank you God for everything* .”

The dove on meeting the sick bird again, delivered the message of the angel to it.

After seven days the dove was passing again passing by and saw that bird was very happy, feathers grew on his body, a small plant grew up in the desert area, a small pond of water was also there, the bird was singing and dancing cheerfully.
The dove was astonished.
The Angel had said that there would be no happiness for the bird for the next seven years. With this question in mind the dove went to visit the angel at heaven’s gate.

The dove put forth his query to the Angel.
The Angel replied, “Yes, it is true there was no happiness for the bird for seven years but because the bird was reciting the verse ” *THANK YOU GOD FOR EVERYTHING* ” in every situation, his life changed.

When the bird fell down on the hot sand it said “THANK YOU GOD FOR EVERYTHING”

When it could not fly it said, “THANK YOU GOD FOR EVERYTHING”

When it was thirsty and there was no water around, it said, “THANK YOU GOD FOR EVERYTHING”

Whatever the situation, the bird kept on repeating, “THANK YOU GOD FOR EVERYTHING! & *consequently* the 7 years *got dissolved* in 7 days!”

When I heard this story, *I felt a tremendous shift in my way of feeling, thinking, accepting and viewing life.*

I adopted this verse in my life.
WHATEVER the situation I faced I started reciting this verse ” *THANK YOU GOD FOR EVERYTHING!*”.

It helped me to shift my view *from what I did not have to _what I have in my life_*.

For instance… if my head pains, I THANK GOD that the rest of my body is completely fine and healthy and I notice that the headache does not bother me at all.

In the same manner, I started using this verse in my relationships (whether family, friends, neighbours, colleagues ) finances, social life, business and everything with which I can relate.

I shared this story with everyone I came in touch with and it brought a great shift in their behaviour too.

This simple verse really had a deep impact on my life, I started feeling how blessed I am, how happy I am, *how good life is!*

The purpose of sharing this message is to make all of us aware of how powerful the attitude of gratitude is!! It can reshape our lives.

Lets recite this verse continuously to experience the shift in our life.

So be grateful, and see the change in your attitude.

Be humble, and you will never stumble.🙏🙏🙏🙏

Story: Always Be Humble And Thank God

A rich man looked through his window and saw a poor man picking something from his dustbin … He said, Thank GOD I’m not poor.

The poor man looked around and saw a naked man misbehaving on the street … He said, Thank GOD I’m not mad. The mad man looked ahead and saw an ambulance carrying a patient … He said, Thank GOD am not sick. Then a sick person in hospital saw a trolley taking a dead body to the mortuary … He said, Thank GOD I’m not dead. Only a dead person cannot thank God. Why don’t you thank GOD today for all your blessings and for the gift of life … for another beautiful day.

What is LIFE?

To understand life better, you have to go to 3 locations :

1. Hospital

2. Prison

3. Cemetery

At the Hospital, you will understand that nothing is more beautiful than HEALTH. In the Prison, you’ll see that FREEDOM is the most precious thing. At the Cemetery, you will realize that life is worth nothing. The ground that we walk today will be our roof tomorrow.

Sad Truth : We all come with Nothing and we will go with Nothing… Let us, therefore, remain humble and be thankful & grateful to God at all times for everything. Could you please share this with someone else, and let them know that God loves them?

Happy New Month Guys

Am happy am celebrating this month with you guys. When you look back and see His goodness, mercy, and grace. I can’t keep shut but thank Him. Am alive, healthy and kicking. We entered the New Year with some friends and family, but most of them did not make it. God I thank you as I pray:

I prophecy into your life that the Lord God will arise from His throne and bless you. He will bless you with what you have been praying for. He will reward you a million fold with what you work for. He will grant unto you all your aspirations and surprise you with what you have not asked for. He will visit your home with good tidings and put a new song into your mouth. Any wicked person that has vowed to waste your efforts, your time, your resources, and glory, shall be wasted in Jesus name. As you set your feet on today’s activities, Heavens shall step out with you. All your missions shall be accomplished to the glory of God. 🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿
The Heavens will favour you.

The Earth will yield it’s increase for you. Everything God created in time, space and eternity will cooperate with you and work in your favour henceforth.
As you lift up your eyes to God in expectation this morning, your nakedness shall be covered, your shame shall be wiped off, your reproach and failure are ended and your testimonies shall abide and abound in Jesus name.

As it is impossible for the Sun not to rise each day, this year and beyond, Jehovah EL-SHADDAI shall surprise you, fast track your progress and your joy shall be full, in the Mighty Name of Jesus. Amen.
🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿

The Lord will set you free today in the name of Jesus. Every negative thought, plan, device, suggestion, or idea, that is not for your well-being is wiped away today in the name of JESUS. Colossians 2:14 “having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross”. Halleluyah!.👍 👍

🗣God will water your ground. Your trees would bear their fruits bountifully. There shall not be scarcity of good things in your life. Till drought ended in the land of Israel, Elijah did not suffer or starve once, because God used ravens and a widow to feed him. I pray that the Lord God Almighty will feed and satisfy you and your family with good things. The blood of Jesus will speak for deliverance and breakthrough for you and your family in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen!!

This is your day of mercy and favour, you are blessed.
