Hey everyone.

So it’s been a while. Busy, school work and all..

Anyway, just last week, I wrote on my WhatsApp status, “Ronaldo is overrated”. Yeah, yeah. You’re probably asking yourself if I am out of my mind. How can one say such? It was same from my contacts on WhatsApp. They came for my head that night. Some took the issue personally like Ronaldo was their brother. Some resorted to insulting me. Others just started sending me stats and facts. Some even felt I was stupid and others claimed that I don’t watch football. Everyone else just seemed to disagree with me especially the Madrid fans. Blegh. Who cares?

Just as people stood for Ronaldo, someone most of them would never meet and have never met, can people confidently stand for you when something that is not true is said about you?

Will they take your matter like its their brother’s?

Can they be able to present facts that will prove that what is being said is false?

My point is, like Ronaldo, strife to be so good so much that your goodness is well known and people can stand up for you anywhere and say confidently that you’re a good person, in your presence or absence.

P.s: I really feel he’s overrated. 😂.. Its my opinion.

LAME FROM BIRTH. 

    When a child is given birth to , the first two things people want to know is the sex of the child and whether the child cried or not. The latter is funny but it is really a big matter if a child is born and he/she refuses to cry – they will have to force those tears out. 
      As the child grows, it is expedient that he/she begins to crawl and as days turn to week that he/she begins to take the bold step to walk. Try to imagine how worrisome it will be if all these don’t happen. Well, think no further! This was actually the fate of a man that was born lame from birth till he had an encounter. 

      This man’s growth was not fashioned the normal way. I’m not sure he ever saw the four walls of a school, not to talk of entering it. He was bedridden and it was not long before he started begging for alms from people. 

      This continued for years and his ‘working’ experience amounted to double figures. His office was right in front of the gate of a temple called Beautiful – how ironic! 

      He was ‘going’ about his usual business when two men came in contact with him and they both gazed intently at him. He was quick to enter into his business mode and immediately he asked them for money, expecting to receive something tangible but it was not the case. 

      Usually , the good-news-bad-news theorem states that you cast the good news before the bad news provided that suspense remains constant. This two men reversed the rule and gave him a bad news first – that they had no money to give to him. This sent a cold chill down his spine. The disappointment on his face was crystal clear and as he was trying to digest what he had just heard, the good news came – that they had something to give him and that in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, he should rise up and walk. 

      He did struggle to walk, he had to leap then walk. He was so happy that he was praising God and obviously dancing. How he learnt all these in a fraction of a second beats my understanding and I’m sure it beats yours too. People were happy for him and amazed too. 

      For some of us,  our lameness is in our academics , for some it is decision-making, for some it is addiction , for some it is love for the things of the world and for some it is a combination of two or more of all these. Whatever that lameness might be, it has the tendency to straighten up when the name of Jesus is involved in it. As you try to camouflage your lameness by associating with things that are beautiful to the eyes, also try to be on the look out for the Peters and Johns that will walk by you and give you a bad news and a good news that will change your destiny.

      I hope that someone will read this and see the power that the name of Jesus carries. I hope that this will be a good news to the bad news you’ve heard. 

Jesus loves you, love him too.

I woke to see a video pop up on my phone, sent by my dad. What could be in this video naw? That was the first thing that crossed my mind. As I watched the video, I didn’t need nobody to tell me, it was worth it! As tears flowed down my cheeks (yh I’m emotional lol), it sent me thinking.

The video was about a lady who went off to college. We all know how it goes na, her mum called everyday to check up on her and be sure she was alright but then it became frustrating for the girl because she felt her mum was disturbing her. Feeling this way, she stopped picking up the calls and went on with her stuff. Winter break came and she had to go home. Sadly, she met her mum in a very bad condition, she had been diagnosed with cancer. I can just imagine the guilt that came upon her! The story ended all well and good because the mother got better and the daughter had a chance to repent.

What if you don’t get a chance to say sorry? Lets learn to be APPRECIATIVE to the people we have around us. Annoying, weird, irritating or any adjective you may like to use, appreciate them and acknowledge their presence because if they go, they are gone. See ehn, there are people that will frustrate the hell outta you but as hard as it is, look for the good and appreciate the good. 

Dont get me wrong, please don’t let anyone disturb your inner peace. But if the person has business with you or is gonna be around for a while, you might as well start ignoring his/her excesses!

Forget friends first, friends will come and go. What of family? When Last did you call that uncle to just greet him no matter how much he might annoy you by repeatedly asking the same question. 

If we continually place the 1 bad over the 10 good, we might face REGRET. 

As a medical student, I get to see dead bodies for dissection classes. This just shows that mehn this life ain’t ours and we need to be grateful for life. As this life can be taken in a second, let us not waste the years we have with people being irritated by them. Let us not regret not calling that uncle or that friend that always gets on your nerves!

Point is, lets appreciate the people we have been opportune to encounter and love them unconditionally. So lets pick the phone up and call that aunty that annoyed you 3 years ago over whatever, call that girl that made you get in trouble. FORGIVE so we don’t spend our lives trying to forgive ourselves.

‘of faith, hope and love, LOVE is the greatest….’
Oh hey! Its March already. All glory to GOD. My message to y’all for this month is to take up your cross and follow Him. He is sure to help you! God’s love keeps keeping us, never letting go!

Look up Jeremiah 29:11. 

A very big welcome to March…
