Nothing just worked right today. Aaaaarrrgghhh! Worst Day yea!

I woke up this morning to a 'not so cool' mail from a Friend, thinking something good could still come out of it i rushed to BBM to talk to the sender about it. Minutes later I was in tears. I couldn't find the exact reasons for the tears but my heart felt torn.
It seemed my heart just got broken by one who I had no claim to.

Reluctantly I got out of bed so I could study my Bible. Getting myself to study hadn't been as hard before, but I tried (oh I tried), My need for a distraction helped.
An Hour and Half later I felt better - The JOY I found in God's presence quickly dried my tears and as I was reminded of the Love Of God and His son for me, I felt my heart get back to normal - or at least close.

I showered and set out to my friend's - 'She'd definitely make me smile and by the day's end I'd have forgotten the ish I woke up to (heh! Hopefully).
Seeing her was pure joy - hadn't seen her for awhile - We gisted (and gossiped too ;)), played, Just spent time doing what we do.
Then everything turned sour,

When Life Gives you Lemons, Make a Lemonade

Exams were to start in three days. Dayo Had just finished Revising the course he was to write first, when his hostel mates started calling those interested in Playing football to come down to the field. Dayo, quickly ran downstairs, He felt football after three hours of intense reading was a good way to relax.

Few minutes after the second Half, Dayo noticed that an opponent had dribbled his players, leaving him and a teammate who was playing defense. Much to his dismay, his opponent successfully passed his defender and sent the ball straight to the goal post, in other to save the goal, Dayo had to perform a stunt which required him to dive and stretch.
He caught the ball successfully and fell on his right hand. Trying to stand up he heard a cracking sound from his right hand and he screamed.

Ever Loved someone that didn't Love you Back?

Ever Loved someone so much that it seems no matter what they do you don't love them less?
Well, I have.
I fell in love with this person one time, and He didn't treat me right. He loved someone else more than he loved me - and he always said it. So Basically, I was the 'spare' - The one he used to keep warm because his 'love' was in another university.
There was this one time. I went to Visit him in His Hostel, and just when I was approaching his room, a girl (who'd I call AB) was leaving.
He said she was just a friend. I believed. Why would he lie? Afterall sincere enough to tell me about the other girl in another school.
Two weeks Later, I was in a friend's room sleeping. AB there too - she turned out to be a friend of my friend's room mate. I woke up to gist of AB Telling Her friend how 'good' My 'supposed Boyfriend is'.

Words are Seeds

...Words have tremendous impact on our lives.
Words Can Break or Make us. Words Can Heal or wound us.

I know people who live a life of crippling insecurity because someone spoke words of Judgement, criticism, and Failure to them on regular basis.

...Words are seeds, and they Produce a Harvest.

When we Sow Negative words into the lives of people that Hold us Dear, on a regular basis, those Words will have an effect in his/her perception of himself which in turn will be manifested in his attitude and behaviour.

It's no wonder,

Radical Love

.I would see the worst in you
And still give you the best
I would see you pale and blue
And still pick you out of the rest

.You would still make me smile
Even when all you do is what is supposed to make me frown
And though you think I perceive you as someone filled with guile
All I still see is your beautiful crown

Your New Self

.Unleash your potential like a blossoming tree
Yield not to fears that make you uncalm like the raging sea
Invest your life in Christ cause He has made you free
Never base your hope only on what you can see

.Only trust in God who showed you genuine love
Redeemed you by sending His son from above
Accepted you and made you from glory to glory to evolve
Gave you wisdom so all life's problem you can solve

Deep Secrets

&#39 ;No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.' But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God's deep secrets."
(1 Corinthians 2:9-10, NLT)

Who do you share your deepest secrets with? Most people only share their inner thoughts with those who are closest to them. People they trust. People they've gone through experiences with. Do you know who God share's His secrets with?

Tyler perry lays hands on Bishop T.D Jakes

While attending sunday service at The Potter's House in Dallas, Tyler Perry (Madea) was moved to donate one million dollars to the church. He told The senior Pastor, Bishop T.D Jakes of his intention, and the Bishop called him out to speak.

Tyler Perry who wasn't expecting to be called out, said he was touched to give a million dollars to the church. He then Preached.

Tyler said When God tells you to move, Just move immediately. He also said DON'T WORRY ABOUT YOUR HATERS, because YOUR ENEMIES NEED TO BE PRESENT FOR YOU TO BE BLESSED - He found that in the Bible, Psalm 23 "The Lord prepareth a Table before me in the presence of my enemies."

His abrupt sermon ended with him praying for and Laying His hands on The Bishop

The Journal

A friend of Mine whose also a blogger ( gave me this story to read, Hoping I'd like it enough to Post it here.
I did Read it and I loved it. Why? It's a 'highly' sincere story of a Boy whose life hasn't been a bed of roses - He has done things he wished he hadn't and uhm, he's still struggling to get back to where He's supposed to be. I'm pretty sure almost everyone can in some way relate to His story.

I hope you enjoy reading it and more, I hope you Learn something from it.

Personal Data
DOB: 10|10|1993
Occupation: STUDENT

All my life, I had always had a reason not to love who I am.
Somehow, somewhere along the line, the big man up above finally looked down below at me. Up until now, I didn't fully understand what grace was all about. Grace is an unmerited favour from God.
This was basically all I understood grace to be. They say you never know the value of something until you Lose it. My life up to this point has been a function of God's grace right up till now, where it all ended (Or so I'm making myself believe).

It had always seemed as if nothing ever came easy for me. I always had to struggle for everything that resembled
success or a break through. It always happened that no matter how hard I worked in school, I just never was the best. I always came close but never was the very best. This one time, I was chosen from my entire
set in primary school alongside another peer to represent the school in a writing competition. With the little time we had, I'm sure I gave it my best shot. We gave it our best shot. Normally, when two or
more persons are representing a school, awards are awarded to the 'representatives' on behalf of the school. Words had come that my school came tops.
With that "normal" idea, I invited my mother to come to the price giving ceremony who of course in turn
had told whosoever her eyes could find that her baby was receiving an award. To my biggest shock, when the award was to be given, only my peer was called up. Did I fail? Was I the worse at the competition? How
do I face my mother?

Life is a Lot of Work

Life is a lot of work.

What is it that gives us the strength to continue when we are tired and burned out? Sometimes an inspired idea can help us renew ourselves and be filled with strength to fulfill our life's purpose.

Inspiration comes in many forms.

However, the root of all inspiration is the
idea that our lives are meaningful.
Inspiration is knowing that what I do matters deeply to the universe.

When you have the feeling that your actions are meaningful, you will become filled with strength and vigor to fulfill your life's purpose.

So,how do we get to the point where we realise and know (for ourselves) that our lives meaningful?

Look within. You'd find all the Inspiration you need.
Get in touch with the Creator. You'd know how to do what you are supposed to do.

One mistake we all make though, is finding inspiration - and source of ideas - outside.

You need not look or search so much, Just get in your closet and Commune with God - He Teach you about you and you'd get all the Inspiration (and Motivation) you need.

Yea, Life is a lot of Work but you don't have to get totally burned out.

Appearance Vs Content

1) A lady in a faded gingham dress and her husband, dressed in a homespun threadbare suit, stepped off the train in Boston, and walked timidly without an appointment into the president's outer office. The secretary could tell in a moment that such backwoods, country hicks had no business at Harvard and probably didn't even deserve to be in Cambridge. She frowned.

"We want to see the president," the man said softly.
"He'll be busy all day," the secretary snapped.
"We'll wait," the lady replied.

For hours, the secretary ignored them, hoping that the couple would finally become discouraged and go away. They didn't. And the secretary grew frustrated and finally decided to disturb the president, even though it was a chore she always regretted to do.

"Maybe if they just see you for a few minutes, they'll leave," she told him.

And he sighed in exasperation and nodded.

The Girl on the Balcony

...My Name is John. This story is about one of my most memorable times in Spain....

It was Thursday, the only day of the week that my teaching schedule left me free. I taught English and Literature in more than in a high school. I was twenty-five and full of enthusiasm for books and imagination.
I was sitting on the balcony drinking Juice and rereading - after a lapse of ten years - The Black boy.
Suddenly i felt someone watching me.
I looked up. On one of the balconies of the building facing mine, at the same height as my own apartment, i saw a young woman. I raised a hand and waved. She waved back and left the balcony.
Curious to know where this might lead, i tried to get a glimpse inside her apartment, with no result.
"This will go nowhere," i said to myself, and returned to my reading.
I hadn't read ten lines before she was back on her balcony, this time with a reading glasses. She sat down on a deckchair.
I began feverishly making signs and gestures. The young woman was reading - or pretending to read - a magazine.
"It's a ruse," I thought. "it's not possible that she doesn't see me, and now she's posing so I can enjoy the show."

I couldn't quite make out her features, but i could tell she was tall,slim with dark curly hair. Overall, she seemed to be a beautiful girl, maybe twenty-two years old.
I left the balcony, went to my bedroom, and peered through the shutters. She was looking in my direction. So i ran out and caught her still looking my way.
I sent her a big, pompous wave which demanded a response. Indeed,she waved back.
After such greetings, the usual thing is to strike up a conversation. But of course we were not going to shout across to each other. So

Becareful Not to APPLY Your Smartness Without Knowing The Facts.

This is should be my shortest Post ever. But regardless of the length I'm very certain you'd get the Core message,that is DON'T APPLY YOUR SMARTNESS WITHOUT KNOWING THE FACTS.

...A Friend of Mine was walking by when he came upon a huge crowd on the road. He figured there was an accident and was eager to get to the injured parties but couldn't due to the crowd.
Being a CLEVER SORT, he started shouting, "Let me through! Let me through! I am the son of the victim".
The crowd made way for him. Lying in front of a car was a donkey.

Please Don't Procrastinate. It kills! It Steals.

"A stitch in time saves nine"

Procrastination is when you put off
things that you should be focusing on right now,usually in favour of doing something that is more enjoyable or that you're more comfortable doing.

I think procrastination is the most common bad habit of all time.
Everybody at one point in time says "I'd do it later".

But just as it is the most common bad habit, so is it one of the deadliest bad habits.

Yes! Procrastination steals, it kills.

The more we put off things for later, the more

It's Your Choice

Jerry was the kind of guy you love to hate. He was always in a good mood and always had something positive to say. When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, "If I were any better, I would be twins!"
He was a unique manager because he had several waiters who had followed him around from restaurant to restaurant. The reason the waiters followed Jerry was because of his attitude. He was a natural motivator.
If an employee was having a bad day, Jerry was there telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation. Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up to Jerry and asked him, "I don't get it! You can't be a positive person all of the time. How do you do it?"
Jerry replied,

Those Things you Leave Undone...

It isn't the thing you do
Its the thing you leave undone
That gives you a bit of a heartache
At setting of the sun.

The tender work forgotten,
The letter you did not write,
The flowers you did not send,
Are your haunting ghosts at night.

The stone you might have lifted
Out of a brother's way;
The bit of heartsome counsel
You were hurried too much to say;

The loving touch of the hand,
The gentle, winning tone
Which you had no time nor thought for
With troubles enough of your own.

Those little acts of kindness
So easily out of mind,
Those chances to be angels
Which we poor mortals find~

They come in night and silence,
Each sad, reproachful wraith,
When hope is faint and flagging,
And a chill has fallen on faith.

For life is all too short,
And sorrow is all to great,
To suffer our slow compassion
That tarries until too late:

And it isn't the thing you do,
It's the thing you leave undone
Which gives you a bit of heartache
At the setting of the sun.

Empty Your Cup, Only Then Would You be able to Get a Refill #ZenStory#

Nan-in, a Japanese master during the Meiji era (1868-1912), received a university professor who came to inquire about Zen. Nan-in served tea. He poured his visitor's cup full, and then kept on pouring.
The professor watched the overflow until he no longer could restrain himself. "It is over full. No more will go in!"
"Like this cup," Nan-in said, "you are full of your own opinions and speculation's. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?"

Bring Forth Treasures

"A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him..."
(Matthew 12:35, NIV)

Recently, there was an article that told how the wealthiest places on earth are not the oil fields of the Middle East nor the diamond mines of South Africa. The wealthiest places are the cemeteries. Buried in the ground are businesses that were never formed, songs that were never sung, books that were never written, potential that was never realized, and dreams that never came to pass.

Friend, don't let that be you! Don't go to your grave with your treasure still in you. Keep growing. Keep learning. Step out in faith and trust God. Bring forth the good treasure that God has placed within you. If you don't know where to start, start by meditating on His Word. Let Him speak to your heart. Learn to hear His voice. Learn to obey quickly. Trust that He is good and will lead you in the path He has prepared for you.

Skill can Slay a Giant

"A man's gift makes room for him and brings him before great men."
(Proverbs 18:16, NASB

When people hear the story of David and Goliath, sometimes the Goliath, sometimes they think, "That was all God." And yes, in a sense, I know it was God. But the truth is that God didn't sling the stone. God didn't cause it to hit at just the right spot. It was the skill God gave David that he had developed.

Like David, God has put in you skill that can slay a giant. You have skill that can open new doors, skills that can lead to an abundant life, but the key is that your skill has to be developed. Every day that you spend growing, learning and improving, you're getting prepared for that new level.

Today, while you're waiting for that new opportunity, start sharpening your skills. Study your boss. Study your manager. Learn that position. Be able to step into their shoes. When God sees that you are prepared, then He can open new doors. The scripture says, "Your gifts will make room for you."
Keep developing your skills because there is a giant slayer in you!

Be Original. Be Yourself. Don't change for anyone or anything.

A plum once said "just because a banana lover came by I converted to banana,his taste changed after awhile so I became an orange the he said I was bitter so I converted to an apple but he went for grapes. Now I have changed so many times, I don't know who I am anymore. I wish I had waited for a plum lover to come along."

Because a group of people don't accept you
for who you are is no reason to strip yourself of your ORIGINALITY. You need to THINK good of yourself(cause the world sees you as you see yourself,the world hold you according to your estimate of yourself).

Never step down to gain acceptance. Never
change to win a relationship. In the long run
you"d regret that you traded your uniqueness for momentary validation.

The group that doesn't accept you isn't yours.
What water can do,gasoline cannot and what copper do,gold cannot. The fragility of an ant enables it move,the rigidity of a tree enables it stay rooted. Everything and everyone has been designed with a portion of uniqueness to serve a special purpose.

In the history of the universe, there hasn't
been someone like you,and to the infinite of
time to come, there won't be anyone like you.
You are original, You are special, You are rare, You are unique, You are the only true original of yourself everyone else is a counterfeit, You are a wonder, You are a masterpiece.
Celebrate your existence. BELIEVE IN
Lots of love.
