YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS!

The word ‘Can’ is defined as “being able to do something physically or mentally.” This means that you are permitted to do something that you would want to do now or perhaps in the future.

Human being was designed to be able to do things easily. This configuration was on set from the time a child is born. The evidence is in the way a kid tries out new things willingly during playtime without hesitation and with practice, gets use to it so that it gets to a point where the kid can engage in that recreation with ease.

Our brain is wired to be able to change and accommodate to changes easily. Though it may take days, months or sometimes years to accommodate, it will be able to do anything. But not on its own: we have a part to play generally in the process; controlling our brain and not the other way round.

When God created man, He gave him authority over the earth: all what the earth has to offer. This shows that man, human, has a permission to do anything.

God created us in a way that nothing on this earth possess a threat to our ability. Nothing! Take for an instance a boy with no hand sewing clothes with his legs: a man with no right arm packing sand with his other hand: a man with no ears able to hear sounds with the aid of a device. This is just a little compared to a lot going on in the world of the possibility of man being able to do all things.

When I mean by Man can do all things, the statement may sound incomplete. Rather, I say, Man can do all things he puts his mind to do. Anything!

St Paul in his letter to the Philippians puts it this way: I (we) can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (us). Philippians 4:13

Do you want to be a world renowned Doctor, Therapist, Psychologist, Accountant, Innovator, Change Agent, Entrepreneur, Inventor and all good you dream?

If your answer is YES! Then, you CAN! You have the ABILITY already; so you CAN.

A wise man, Solomon, in his Proverbs says that “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he”. Proverbs 23:7

This statement carefully examined would see a degree of responsibility on the part of anyone who desires to do something – anything. The responsibility on it’s part is to prove that nothing goes to anyone without full acknowledgment of desires that may be.

Do you think? Then, what you think should be of a positive and not negative. Else you won’t be able – You can NOT – to do anything.

However, if you think that you can be a revolutionist, a change agent, a Nation builder and so good of your dream, then you CAN.

The saying of the wise man further supports that the reward for what you think in your heart is your becoming of that which you have thought.

MIDWEEK MOTIVATION – EPISODE FOUR.

Doubt is an enemy but you can use it to your advantage.

This is Good news!

This means you can doubt whatever you have been told to believe about yourself.

Doubting can also be seen as questioning the system you have been made to believe about yourself; that you can not, that you can never, that you will remain this way, that you will never succeed, that you can never become better without them.

You CAN doubt and question these sayings and become a better version of yourself.

Nobody should make you think bad about yourself when God wants you to become a better person in all you do.

God, when He was done with creating man, said it was GOOD. If He said it then, He says it now and everyday to you because He sent His Son, JESUS, to die for your sake. His Love is ever great upon you; He Loves YOU passionately! Never forget that!

Doubt your Doubt!

Doubt that lie that has become a truth over the years. Doubt it! Question it!

You will become better. It is a process. Trust it.

MIDWEEK MOTIVATION – EPISODE TWO.

Start with what you have. Along the way, you will get the right resources you need to achieve your dream.

This is meant for someone. The person finding it hard to start with what he or she has because it is not enough.

What I want to tell you was how I ‘officially’ started making money at my teen years.

The first person that officially introduced me to the business world was my Sweet Mother. 

Staying with her opened my eye to a part of the world where accountability was very important.

In the location where the shop was is an opportunity to make money as a teenager which I grabbed immediately it came through.

I thought about what to sell and then an idea came through.

Fuel.

That was where the story began…

I had saved up some cash from the monetary tips I was gifted and having discussed the issue with my Mom, I started off with selling five litres.

You remember that adage that says ‘A journey of a thousand miles begins with a step…’

Though I was a bit shy when I started out but my Mom helped me in the broadcast to every customer that came by. That was how I started getting orders and sales. I Love you Mom!


READ ALSO: MIDWEEK MOTIVATION – EPISODE ONE.

The five litres of fuel increased to 10 litres, 20 litres, 30 litres, 40 litres,120 – 150 litres of fuel per week.

The need for Sealed Engine oils came in and gradually, I began to sell that too.

I made ‘Clean Cool Cash’ (C³) money from that business I kicked off with just five litres of fuel.

Similarly, I started selling Airtime, Data, TV cable subscriptions and Electricity Bill payments in school. Now, I am a Network Marketer in the Telecommunications Industry and more to come by God’s Grace. All Glory to God!

Dear Friend,

Start with what you have. Along the way, you will get the right resources you need to achieve your dream.

Learn from my experience. The future awaits your greatness.

Cheers!

THE STORY OF TWO CANDLE.

Two candle lived afar from each other. Both burning in their respective seasons and field.

A day came when the spectators of candle A started leaving for candle B.

Candle A kept shining but it got to a point where the progress of candle B distracted it and so, it’s flame started to die off gradually.

(This is where you give into comparison and instead of focusing on your path, you are worried about someone else’s path.)

When candle A looked over to the camp of candle B to see how it is showcasing it’s flame it saw that candle B kept on increasing while it’s flame decreases.

(This is where you start to devalue yourself and then give into envy what you already have.)

One day, it approached the other and asked what is the secret having being that they do the same work but it seems to be the one to outshine.

However, Candle B replied “I am just being a candle that helps people see through my light. I don’t bother if they appreciate me or not. I just want them to see. In essence, I mind my business.”

Surprised at what the candle said, candle A went back and did exactly what Candle B advised and since then, it’s influence has kept on increasing.

Are you worried about what’s happening in someone else’s camp? Though you may be doing the same work and it seems that you are not doing it better.

Well, at that point is when you need to consider going on with what you are doing your own way. With your vision and mission in check.

A candle that flames in the desert is the same candle that flames in the town: all made with almost the same substance and doing their various craft in places where they seem to have found themselves in.

Avoid the voice that says ‘look at him or her is progressing and you are not’. Perish that voice and do your part on the path you were sent on.

When it seems that what you are doing is not yielding results the way others aren’t yielding results, don’t worry. Cross check, Recheck and Reengage.

And mind you, the result others are getting must not be the same with yours or yours the same with theirs. You have a capacity that you are meant to work in and you can’t do more than that. If you do, you will break down.

This is not me placing limitations on you or you placing limitations on yourself. This is facts. There are something’s that others do that you will not be able to do. The day you do it, you breakdown. I’ve witnessed and experienced this.

This is why we learnt division of labour and specialization in economics. People can serve as your source of inspirations but you can’t be exactly like them because you don’t know what they really did to achieve what they achieved. What you saw or was being told is just an introduction to calculus.

(The introductory part of calculus will make you love that aspect of maths. But get into it my dear, you will have to barb your hair. Even as a lady.)


Please, share to as many as possible. Together, let’s destroy this act of lack of fulfilment and contentment towards what we do to make the world a better place. Thank you.

WHAT IF THE GREAT ARCHITECTS, DOCTORS, PSYCHOLOGIST, PASTORS/PRIESTS, AND ENTREPRENEURS WERE AFTER THE MONEY INSTEAD OF THE VALUE THEY WERE DESTINED TO GIVE.

Think about this.

THE COSMOS RECOGNIZED A NEW LEADER.

The story of Isaac’s twin is a call to order to all who will want to trade their right, of any sort, with pleasure of any sort, using their mouths, by their words.

Esau loved hunting. Jacob preferred staying indoors. Esau came back hungry, met Jacob preparing a soup and beckoned on Jacob to do so, ‘make I chop small before I kpeme.’

Jacob understands his brother Esau. A man that doesn’t care about his right. Of any sort, remember?

He has studied him and written him off as someone whose weakness is his concern for what he has. Jacob studies people for a living.

Jacob gave Esau the template of the deal: make an exchange: take my right, give me yours.

Esau, thought, what is ‘Right’ (Destined Future) if I die because of ‘Hunger’ (Waiting for the right time).

Jacob, in his mind, ‘Nothing to you, means a lot to me.’

Esau, willingly, made the exchange and everything that belongs to him, present and the future, became Jacobs. Everything that answers and will answer to Esau had a new leadership, Jacob’s empire. The Cosmos recognised a new leader. Their course changed to Jacob’s.

Esau, ‘Na food I chop, na mouth I use, na talk I talk – e no mean anything. Las Las, I go dey alright.’

Blessing day was approaching, but, he gave in to the tricks played by the season. Be sensitive.

BLESSINGS DAY

Isaac called his son Esau to go and get him something special that he may eat, bless him, ’cause he may die soon.

Esau, got ready, zoomed to the country of free food, the forest.

Mother Rebecca, eavesdropping Queen, master of event swung into action.

‘Jacob, look at what I heard. This and that will this and that and this and that will this and that.’ Mother Rebecca said.

Jacob, knows his mother. She can’t give him false details. He studies people for a living, remember?

Rebecca, thought, an opportunity comes. Maybe once. ‘If I perish, I perish.’ She was in charge of the decorations for the set event. She even made the attire to be used.

Don’t blame them. The exchange has been made already. The blessing answers to anyone who receives the Key. Esau gave his consent, remember? His WORDS sent the birds on an errand, remember?

Isaac, felt something was wrong, yet he didn’t find out. How could he. Everything was answering to the trade, remember?

He blessed him. Deal? Signed, Sealed and Sent: ‘go prepare the future, the king is come.’

He received the blessing, the key, the consciousness of WORDS permeated his being.

‘WHATEVER I DO, I EXCEL. ANYTHING I ENGAGE, I SUCCEED. I AM BLESSED.’

Thoughts like that came upon him, they made their abode in him. Why? He has come of the full knowledge that he is Blessed. He has the RIGHT!

MORAL OF THE STORY.

Be careful of what you say when you are in desperate need of something. Your words are powerful. Your tongue is deadly.

Be careful of what you say concerning your self. Your words are keys to everything on Earth. You create with your words, you destroy with your words.

GOD created the world with the WORD of his Mouth.

Always say positive things about your self. Even though everything seems to be wrong, keep saying the right things. The Spirits respect your words.

KEEP ADDING VALUE!

If you are on the verge of breaking down because you don’t have engagements from the value you are giving to your world, this is for you.

It is very hard to be consistent in making people’s life better through what you take out time to think, research and deliver. This happens most especially when you don’t have engagements from people who you are giving it to. No sign of appreciation, at least, for your efforts.

Do not worry! Do this one thing that I will state and one day you will be glad you never stopped.

KEEP ADDING VALUE.

Yes, it will be hard but continue anyway.

If you have been getting it wrong, try getting right.

Keep improving. Keep adding taste to peoples’ life. Keep being the light. Keep being the salt.

Don’t loose your saltiness because you are not appreciated or congratulated.

Look again, you may be planting on the rocky ground. If that be the case, look for a fertile soil. Don’t stop.

The rocky ground, the thorny bushes and the good soil are all your audience. One day, those that fell on the good soil will blossom.

KEEP ADDING VALUE.

THE STORY OF A BOY AND HIS FRIEND.

A boy’s friend was being beaten by two persons. On getting to the scene he rushed to help his friends but he shouted ‘Don’t help me. I can beat them alone.’ This, he did to prove to those around that he is a ‘man.’

For respect sake towards his friend, he obeyed his wish and watched him being beaten.

Finally, he agrees that he should come help him and immediately the boy jumped in and saved his friend.

This is how it is when WE claim to do things on our own without the help of the HOLY SPIRIT.

Anytime we engage in an Endeavour and we don’t invite God’s Helps through His Spirit and Grace, we struggle at it.

This is why the book of Sirach admonished that we say that ‘By God’s Grace’ we will achieve our aim.

Also, the book of proverbs pointed out that we make our plans but God directs them.

In the same vein, St Paul says that ‘The Spirit comes to help us in our Weakness.’ Also, ‘We can do all things through Christ that strengthens us.’

This proves that when we acknowledge the efficacy of God’s Spirit in our Life, we become victorious in Life.

Remember, It is ‘Not by Power, Not by Might but by THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD GOD.’

Wishing Us A Happy Sunday.

Cheers!

MARRY AN ‘ASSET’ AND NOT A ‘LIABILITY’ – Part One.

The first thing that came to your mind might be that am referring to a certain gender. Well, am actually referring to all gender.

Do not marry a liability, rather marry an Asset.

The definition of asset, contextually to what I want to emphasize on, is someone that add values: Spiritually and Physically.

You have been told a lie that marrying an asset means marrying someone that is established, working and has something doing. If you’ve heard of something similar then you are a bit wrong. It is not balanced.

Look at this scenario for proper understanding:

Example One;

Let’s say you married an asset according to the context you’ve been made to believe; that is, established and so on. What happens then if the product of the established or the established gets lost along the way: properties and what he or she does is all gone.

Your answer is as good as mine.

You have nothing to fall back to. You will then notice and see that what made the individual an asset is gone and before long, you will notice how liable they are.


READ ALSO: HOW TO EFFECTIVELY OVERCOME THE INFLUENCE OF YOUR ENVIRONMENT AND SCALE TO GREAT HEIGHTS.


Example Two;

Let’s say you married an ‘asset’ whose value is spiritually and physically sound. As the journey goes on, something happens to the physical aspect, you will see that one will be able to help the other get back to his or her feet.

Smith wigglesworth, of blessed memory, is another example of this discussion. I read that his wife was the one that played a major role in his restoration and engagement to full time ministry. I read that at times when his wife will be out there winning souls for Christ, he is about his business of plumbing. It got to a point that he became furious with her for keeping late into the night for the sake of the ministry and had pushed her away through the back door. She came back through the front door (Smith forgot to close the front door), and they laughed so hard that what, this modern day, would have turned to a brawl turned into joy and realisation of truth.

Imagine if she wasn’t a Spiritual and Physical asset altogether, the name Smith wigglesworth would not be known.


READ ALSO: A MESSAGE TO THE PARRNTS; EPISODE TWO.


From their story I understood that God sends someone into our life to be of help to us in all wise path.

Some marriages are breaking today and will continue to divide if intending & already couples don’t accept this truth.

Being an asset as a husband to your wife or your wife to your husband doesn’t necessarily mean that you are to have the whole world to yourself. There are some things that when it happens, the whole world will leave you and guess what: the only person that will be by your side will be your wife or your husband.

Make a wise decision today.

Your thoughts are welcome.

CONTINUE THE GOOD WORK.

This message goes to all who thinks that their effort will never be rewarded. To those who think that what they are doing is in vain. To those thinking that the good they do won’t come back to them.

If you are found in this category or one related to it, this message is for you.

You have not come this far to go back. You are almost there.

This thing am telling you is out of my little experience in life.

No matter what you do, keep your head up high; keep doing the good you are doing. Don’t relent. Just keep doing it.

I know how many times I have received thank you messages from people I had offered help long ago of which I had forgotten.

This help is not only material but non-material too.

Substances of value that have change people mindset and is still changing others.

I remembered a time someone asked me to help him look up for a job. Although, I did not look up the job, I showed him how to look up for the job himself. I gave him key things he should consider and people that he should meet of which he did.

Few months later, he sent me a message that he was grateful for what I did.

When I saw the message I was speechless for a while.

Now, that might not be so big to you, but it meant a lot to me. It’s a sign that I should keep doing what I was doing and also to increase it.

Keep up the good work for a day will come when you will realise how valuable you have been to people around you.

Sometimes it is hard. I know. I’ve been there.

You will want to give up on it but trust me, don’t give up on your capacity of being a value to people.

It must not be material. That’s even the least of all help you can render to someone. There are other substances you can offer to people that can be felt. One of them is an oriented value in line with what that person needs at that time.

Continue the good work. I plead!

You know, the truth is: doing good works is like having a land where you plant different seeds. It will take time to germinate, sprout, shred and develop. But when the time comes for it to bear fruit, you will enjoy the harvest.

What you sow is what you will reap.

Keep sowing good seeds of Love, Happiness, Joy, Strength, Courage, Faith, Hope, and more into peoples’ life. On ‘the’ good day, it will blossom and you will harvest in bounty.

Doing and being good may cost you everything but it won’t cost you the future. That’s the truth you strongly need to hold on. The future is bright for you.

It will amaze you that your goodness will reach up to your generations unborn. David in the book of Psalms says that he has never seen the children of the righteous beg for bread.

Why?

Because their father was merciful and lends out what he has for others to benefit.

Beloved, your grand great children will prosper if you keep up what you are doing. You have to be intentionally driven to do good. Don’t just do good because you want to make heaven. Who does that?

Do good because you know how important it is to you and how important it is to the world.

Do you know that peoples’ destiny depends on your effort as a person?

Well, it does.

I will conclude by saying that you don’t need to be rich to reach out to people neither do you need to be a literate to reach out to the illiterate. One of the things you need is to have a determined and decided heart to do that.

The man who helps just one person at a time had helped one nation at the same time.

Keep it up, please. Don’t relent!

Remain Blessed!
