A Little too late

I went out with friends about two weeks back. We had a good time. I ordered safe food, food I know my body doesn’t react to. A friend of mine orders something a bit out of my safe food range but since we wrer all feeling free and sharing, I took some of hers and she some of mine.
The very next day I saw a spot on my skin I ignored. In three days my body was covered in spots. My body was allergic to whatever was on my friend’s plate I dared to try. 
I learned some lessons from this,
1.       Keep to your own and be content. What someone else has in life may look more sophisticated, more mature, more organized or to some extent everything you have ever wondered. Maybe I should have been more content and minded my own business. In this case my own plate. No matter how unattractive or plain your life may seem it is only for your own good or sometimes just a stepping stone to a more glorious end. The laws of God are not too tedious for us to follow  but we like to try too many things as though God doesn’t know what he is doing. Truth is He knows everything and sometimes He watches us wander only to bring you to a place when re you can totally depend on Him alone. His Ways are higher ,His thoughts are wiser. Simply obey even if it doesn’t seem nice or fun, it is for your own good.
2.       Destroy the little foxes . When I realized the first sign of reaction I should have  taken steps to eliminate it. That would have prevented the wide spread rash I am currently having . There are times we do “little” things that the Holy Spirit prompts us about. They could be things we said in moments of haste or thoughts we had which mostly seem unimportant but upon reflection we are pointed in the right direction. If we can destroy bad habits as soon as they start we are sure to have a more fulfilled walk with God.
I think prayer will help and constantly reading the word so we Remember God’s stance on every situation on life. We may be faced with the same situation moremtuan once in our lifetime and we will need to constantly make the right decisions. That’s how we grow.  
Jeremiah 32:39
I will give them singleness of heart and action, so that they will always fear for their own good and the good of their children.

lesser things

Luke 12:15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth



So I saw something which belonged to someone and I almost let myself believe God hasn’t been so good to me. I think it’s a daily struggle in our mind to covet our neighbor. We think having those things would make us feel better, more fulfilled or important. However little or much you may posses there are two sure words for you.

1.       God has a plan to give you better. He wants to bring you to a place of goodness and hope.

2.       No eye has seen , no ear has heard ,no one can know what God has in store for those that love him.

We never can tell where we are going because with the Holy Spirit we are like winds ,people will see us and recognize us but won’t know where we come from or where we are going (John 3). God’s vision for life would probably shake you if he gave you full details. God is good and he wants us o prosper in our body, soul and spirit.

Having earthly things is great but what you posses must not define you. The vision God is working out for you should be what you answer to. 

Your life should be made off loving God +serving Him + trusting daily.

When you decide to pray, do not pray for just physical things, pray for deeper things like favor, grace and mercy. And yes  God’s glory will surround you. For the Presence of God is an atmosphere hat can draw anything you could ever want. The anointing and recognizing the anointing will allow you to understand that there are so many things God can do with what you have right where you are.


Women of faith have a song “boundless love” a line in it struck me this morning…. “where all of you is all of me”

This is what we should be seeking, to carry the very nature of God, to be saturated  with Him.


Luke 12:15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth

Do you believe He exists?

Hebrews 11:6
.........because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists.......
In this present age, science seems to have an explanation for everything and the things yet to be explained are currently under investigation.

We can never explain what made Abraham leave his father's house , a place of comfort to pursue a certain promise which a certain voice had told him off.
Why would Noah build an ark on certain instructions which were enough to ensure every creature on the planet had a place in it.

They believed in the existence of a higher power, something greater than themselves ,greater than the worlds and everything they had seen or experienced.

They believed He Existed 

Faith produced a holy fear in Noah when his world was full of men following their own desires. HE OBEYED, following everything he had been told in His Spirit even when he was made a laughing stock. He became an heir of righteousness by his faith. Abraham left the gods he knew and ventured into lands promised to his descendants even though he had no child. He saw stars and sandal and a destiny while still childless. He had faith that the one who promised was able. He may not have understood how it was gong to happen but he let God be God.
Through his faith his son Isaac also obtained the promises of God to Abraham. Faith can produce transferable blessings to generations unborn.
Isaac saw his father's faith when he was almost sacrificed and God provided. He then also transferred his faith to his sons . 

Your choice to believe in God is more than one you make for yourself because your faith will affect generations after you.

A good place to praise

In my disappointment with myself this morning .....

When sin weighs heavy on you
And you feel soiled and dirty
Its a good place to praise
Remember you were bought at a price
Where Lord Jesus bled and died

When you try with all your strength
To pray, read the word and share
But every effort is met with sleep, sleep and judgment
Its a good place to praise
To suffer with the Lord is a blessing
For we will be risen with Him in heaven

When no one believes in your dream
That your hope in God is not just a theme
But a deviation to truly live for Him
Pulling down all altars to worship The Elohim
Its a good place to praise
Because praise will always make a way  

Time with God

You set an alarm for dawn to wake up and pray. The alarm goes off and you wake up to turn it off only to go back to sleep or browse the internet.


I have set 3 alarms to remind me to spend time with God daily. If I followed it I would have at least 3 hours of time with God t grow my spirit.
 so I woke up today at dawn as always, turned off the alarm and began tapping on my phone screen. In an hour my radon was on listening to a preacher as a morning was two hours later I picked up my devotional. Then I realized what has been happening to me.
I have been substituting God for other things! Harsh Truth.
So after I struggled to ignore my phone and had my quiet time which was titled Christian Time with God. I wrote this.
Reading Psalm 39:1-5 and Psalm 90:1-12

I learnt that the condition of my heart and  my mind are in two different places. The condition of the heart and the mind must be on the same page to some extent to achieve some things.Our minds want one thing and our hearts another. The funny thing is the mind has a louder voice than the heart so in your heart you want one thing but your mind being loud went ahead of your heart.
If we can tame our minds to follow the direction of our heart in things of God we will find the discipline to pray, to fast, to wait on The Lord.

My next alarm is noon and I look forward to my time with God. Will let you know how it goes.

The first seventy years


 Psalm 90:10

Seventy years are given to us

Some even live to eighty

But even the best years are filled with pain and trouble;

Soon they disappear ,and we fly away.


How old are you now? If we were to live up to 70  years , how many years do you have you?

So what have you done so far with the years you have actually lived?

Have you spent time worrying about your pain and struggle?

Are you worried about death ?

What ever is in your past even in yesterday is dead and gone. Time wasted can never be regained but we know that God is in control of our lives and even the things that seem evil can be used for our good. He knows how to transform anything into a testimony.

 I am 24years now meaning I have 46 more years to do what I have been called to. I have to try and make each day count. We all do.
May we learn to number our days and gain hearts of wisdom.

Things that matter.

Ever been in a battle with your will? We all have those moments where the will to do something and the need for it are on opposite sides of the compass.

So my latest dilemma was a simple picture. To post or not to post?

Of course please post. You looked amazing anyways. It is a statement which screams yes world I am growing . Nothing wrong really with posting but I wondered why sharing that particular picture felt so important in that moment. So I didn’t .

What are the things that really matter to you? Are they suppose to matter? Why? Do they fulfill a particular purpose?  Why is that purpose important?

When my mentality shifts  like this I see how needless social media may be for some of us. I mean so far my social media doesn’t seem to profit nothing and I don’t only mean money.    


But then again, I have been lifted up by the inspirational words and bible verses my friends on Facebook and followers on Twitter share.

I have learnt from links to certain articles and I have become better. I am an “Amalia”  as a friend said always indoors but my door to learn trends and insight into this modern era has come from online experiences.

I realize that there are more important things than my facebeat( yes I slay) and red rocking dress I felt like sharing or showing off.  Have fun and share your memories with the world nothing wrong with that.

Don’t however make the social media set standards for up because the same society hailing Jesus crucified Him. Study to sow yourself approved by God not man. What are we but as fleeting as flowers.

Our identity, direction and action must be directed by the Spirit of God. Isaiah 11:1-3 tells us the levels of operating in the Spirit we need.

Flora a friend of mine always used to say “be spiritual ’ trust me then it was annoying but honestly it is necessary. We walk not according to the flesh but the Spirit.

In the words of a wise man(Rev. Andy Yawson),  you and the world do not have the same primary purpose. May our eyes be on the things that have purpose alone.

Sacrificed daily


Romans 12:1   I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service (KJV). This verse is popular where I come from, mostly interpreted as a caution against fornication. Very true, living sacrifices however go beyond the lust of the flesh. It involves presenting every organ of your body to glorify God. From the lips of babes God ordained is tuning your mind, desire, words body language to be acceptable to God. It is not following all our emotions, hormones and desires because we can rather waiting on the direction of the Holy Spirit.


Romans 15:16  That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.

Ministry is sacrifice. It is responding to the calling of God on your life and not looking back. It is not an easy sacrifice but anyone who leaves, mother, father siblings will be given even more of anything they gave up. Abraham was promised a son.Then he was supposed to sacrifice his only son. I wonder how Abraham was able to simple obey. He sacrificed his entire existence on a hunch which we now agree is faith. And today his descendants are too many to count. To truly give up something you must believe in what you are doing. The one who puts his back to the plough and looks back is not worthy. To follow your calling is going to draw someone to Jesus. The power of God through your ministry will produce sanctification for someone. That men may see you and give glory to God.  


Philippians 2:17  Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all. Sacrifice with joy even if it hurts. When we understand that which is required of us we would not murmur or complain. God doesn’t always give us the full picture, he shows us only a few colors and we are to walk on that which he chose to reveal. In pain we need to learn to rejoice. Let’s build our faith through prayer and reading of the Bible that way we can be fully convinced of the will of God for our lives and freely sacrifice.

1 Peter 2:5   Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. You are an important piece in the body of God.our entirety is a to be a sacrifice. To serve in his presence to do the work of the one who has called us.

1Peter 3:16  Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.17 But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

 I watched a Joseph Prince sermon recently. Not the whole thing but the part that spoke to me was when he said we should have helmets on our heads. Funny,imagine people walking around with helmets all the time like it rains hailstones.

Remember the last time the words someone spoke hurt you, in actual fact that is what we all need, helmets on our heads.

As a man thinketh so is he, a helmet is needed to ensure we do not corrupt our identity in Christ. We may be easily swayed by what we see and forget what we know. We must watch what we feed our minds. Whatever we feed in our minds will eventually get to our hearts. if any man be in Christ he is a new creation behold old things have passed all things have become new. The newness of mind we receive when we decide to accept Jesus needs to be preserved and we must therefore have helmets on our heads. People say a lot of things about us but it is up to us to not let anything they say affect our thoughts, we must analyse every criticism carefully praying that if there be a need for change God gives us grace to change. We must however also know who we are in Christ and be strong enough to not give up as long as the Holy Spirit hasn’t convicted us of the path we follow. The bible says we must guard our hearts with all diligence for from it flows the issues of life. To guard your heart you need to guard your mind it is not what goes into a man that makes him unclean but what comes out of him. What we feed on is what we give out so we must learn to sift the chaff from the wheat.


Misinterpretation of words is most likely the main reason people argue. We hear a bunch of words from a person and without asking for clarification jump to our own conclusion. This may or may not be wrong but if our minds dwell long enough on a person’s actions or words, it creates a place for misinterpretation and anger. The one who offends us is probably moving on with their lives but we are stuck in a loophole,replaying those moments and imagining what we could have  done or will do next time we encounter them. This is pretty new to me because I can replay out situations and then in my own mind figure out how it should have gone, what the person was meaning, whether it was right of them… the best way to avoid this is to let o immediately. You think they disrespected you? Let it go immediately. Maybe they did may be they didn’t mean it in that sense but the vast upbringing of people could let what you see as harmful as harmless. Took me a while but lately I try to not hold on to any form of hurt for even an hour. Life is too precious to waste on hurt when it isn’t even physical. Take it out of your mind and treat it as nothing and it will be. Maybe it is our sense of self-importance that puts us there anyways.


Thai probably the most clichΓ© part of this piece. The TV shows, the music and the movies you watch can. E terrible to a person’s mind. I grew up watching TV as the sole source of entertainment, all these American shows and stuff so imagine my surprise when I got out there in my first year and realized it wasn’t like in the movies. I did a couple of crazy things I won’t lie and a few people didn’t even believe I am Ghanaian πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Too much TV creates a false sense if what the outside world really is. To face life you need to put away all the things you see on TV then take a careful look at the environment you are in, get to understand is traditions and observe how the people function.  What you see isn’t what you get. If you want to live a lie in the fast lane you can just follow TV shows and music videos. If you want to live in the c

After School Reflections

1.       Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge him and he shall make your path straight.
The road for me in university has had lots of up and downs. I shed tears, skin and friends and for someone who grew up believing the world is right if you do the right thing and treat people right  you can imagine my shock. People will never do for you what you do for them. You will get fed up of trying to be there  for others. You will be misunderstood A Lot because you are different. The tendency to go with the flow is pretty high. The desire to belong is within everyman and it is normal just make sure it doesn’t take you where you are not wanted or respected.  Trusting in a plan  made for you before you were conceived  is the only way to avoid messing up. God doesn’t need to show us the whole picture but when we take each day with Him and trust that all things are working for our own good when the picture is finally revealed we will understand smiling with no regrets. Praying about friendships, hurts, finances, academics and family has helped me through those four years because there was a God who listened.

2.       Pray continually

Prayer works. I used to pray every Sunday like a sorta communication time with God after church but I got lazy. I used to pray every afternoon after class but it was hard to be in a room with people after class and pretend to sleep while you actually want to pray so your prayer time might just end up in sleep. I used to pick the first Sunday of each month as time to plan the month with God. Then I tried using 6pm walks to engage in prayer. I even had a prayer timetable.  Prayer is important not just in school  but for life . Prayer may not guarantee heaven but it is leverage on earth. I can’t say I prayed enough while in school but I believe Godspeed every litte effort made to communicate with Him.Go to church, pray in groups but don’t forget personal prayer. If you are like me struggling to find a place to pray after school maybe stay behind .i am no expert but as a student you need to pray. Pray about everything, what people say how they treat you how you feel about thing. Pray continually about everything .


3.        Make choices

This was my saddest forte because it was my weakest. Choices, conscious ones need to be made. Along with a choice must  come an action. I tried to explain my action to people who didn’t make the choices with me . They didn’t make the choices because they weren’t looking for the result  I was looking for. Obviously I was looking odd to them. The thing with a personal choice is it is personal. Your convictions will never be as strong as the next person’s. So make a choice and stuck to it, if you have someone who will be useful in accountability areas tell them about it if not you may need new people in your life or get creative in evading questions from those who won’t let you be. Not every choice is everyone’s business some you can tell people with explanation others you suffer in silence and criticism.

Doesn’t it feel nice when people praise you for a job well done? It is like the honor they bestow on you for a kind act can push you to do more kind acts.

What if no one saw your kindness ,would you still be kind?

If no one praised you for a job well done, would you do things haphazardly?

1Cor 10:31 ,So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, Do It All for the glory of God.


So now I ask, what are your motives for your actions?

We like to be be praised, noticed and honored but we should ask ourselves do our motives honor God?

Do we make the left hand know what the right hand is doing?

Do we openly seek appreciation?
What runs through your mind when you see someone you once helped?
Why did you even help them?

See a man diligent in his work he will serve before Kings

Fame may or may not come if we work hard but what will surely come is connections to other great people.

In a generation where it is believed fame is the meaning of Success ,let’s  choose to subscribe to a quiet life of hard work.

Let us make honoring God our prime .

So today as you step out, the way you look, talk, react to things and even people should bring Honor to the one   who made us.

Let men look at us and give God the glory.

In the words of a wise man, we are all pencils in the hands of the creator.

Dark lights

2.       Shine your light.

There is a need to let people see Christ in you. There is a need for you to be a guide to someone to find Christ.

We may be ardent readers of the bible and may have imbibed soo much of the Holy spirit in us but it is completely useless when we cover the light and keep it all in.
Yours may be just a daily encouragement with a bible verse  continue to do it.

It may be you share your testimonies of the deliverance that God has provided to encourage someone’s unbelief.

It could be you pray with someone once in a while, you share a little of your blessings or maybe you drag someone to church even if they complain, whatever it is remember that it is Jesus who works in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure . He started something in you and He will see to its completion. It is not up to you to know how He wants to work it just trust and obey.


I have tried to pray on my own and tried to make it a habit to prayer at a certain time everyday. It is tough no lies but today my eyes were opened . I saw a group of friends go to pray then it hit me, the reason I struggle to keep up with my prayer times is probably because there is no one I am accountable to.   I Alone know I pray at this time ,I alone know why I am nowhere to be found at that time. I alone… how selfish ! I have had a light and I have hidden my light. I am letting I alone get into God’s presence forgetting I have been charged to go into the light and make disciples of nations ….teaching them that which The Lord has taught me. I hope my friends forgive my selfishness. I hope like those group of friends I invite my friends to go on prayer walks with me or share my daily Joyce Meyer devotions.



I have been a very dark light, a highly selfish Christian and I am broken as to how much I have let experiences and situations change me.


Hopefully you  and I can go on this journey of Shining together.

 If you have a light and you are covering it because you are scared of shy or for whatever reason you have know that someone’s ticket to heaven is on you.


Well once there is life there is hope


It is hard to communicate how you relate with God and how you want to be near him when you (me) have been ridiculed for that same reason earlier in life.

It is harder when you(me) know you are still struggling to walk the straight and narrow because of countless experiences of, let downs and heart breaks.

Be still and know that I am God.

The troubles of the present (and the past) cannot be compared to the glory that is to come.


Keep being the Christ-like person you have always been. Keep doing the things God has convicted you to do even if you don’t feel like it.

Dark Lights

Would you light a lamp and keep it under a table? When Dumsor hits you would you keep the lantern under the table still? Easter was an exciting time for me. I learnt about how I and probably you too enjoy being dark lights.


There are many people with wonderful relationships with God. They are tongues speaking Christians who receive visions and divine revelations on life from God. There are people who when you mention a Bible verse the kind of divine insight they can share would make you marvel?

As it is in the scriptures we have a form of godliness but deny its power. We like to look cool and not have people ask us questions about our religious choices and like to look normal A  Lot!

Daniel purposed in his heart not to defile himself with the food sacrificed to the idols. Meschach ,Shadrach and Abednego refused to bow to a god even when threatened with death.

It is not because our generation is a harder one than theirs  ,but we have not set in stone our do’s and don’ts and are not ready to fight for what we believe.

Many people known the Bible and what it says yet woven fewer are ready to do what it says let alone fight for its truth.




We can shine by

1.       Letting the word dwell richly in your heart.

They word have I hid in my heart that I may not sin against you.David knew the importance of having the word in your heart. When u keep something in your heart, you cherish and jealousy watch over it. Eph 1:18  I pray that your hearts be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called –his holy people who are his rich glorious inheritance.

LIGHT IS AN EMMISION OF ABSORPTION ..whatever colors we see it is because the material has absorbed its spectrum and is emitting what it already has.

When we spend time in the word of God we flood our hearts and our minds with light. We allow the Spirit of God to come and fill us and transform us. We are able to then show that which has been given to us to the world.

Perhaps you have been reading your Bible for a while but you don’t feel like much change is happening, don’t stop. His ways are not our ways neither are His thoughts our thoughts, keep reading, keep praying keep doing whatever you are doing to get closer to God and to shine .

It may take a while, you may stumble but keep moving till you are convicted by the Holy Spirit and live according to the word of God.

 As he walked the streets, bleeding from his back the enormous  chunk of wood gracing his back.He was walking to the hill where he would need to surrender, his final act of Trust. Onlookers still not understanding why an innocent man had been exchanged for a guilty man.

This would probably be my version of Jesus walking to Golgotha if I was there but we Mathew,Mark, Luke and John’s account ,it should be enough. Calvary walking is one lonely road.

When you begin to change your ways to the standard of God, there are two things you will be hit with

Doubt from within and doubt from without.

You will at times feel unsure of your decisions and doubt that you are on the right path. The battlefield of the mind is going to be a hot zone . When doubt however the best choice is to OBEY whatever the Lord says. Do what the Bible says and follow the deep convictions of the Holy Spirit.God’s ways are not our ways neither are our thoughts his thoughts for as high as the heavens are above the earth  so are his ways higher than ours. We try to understand God to know what he is doingbefore we move along. That is a wrong move, we must Trust in Him and Obey because he knows the end from the beginning.  With every little obedient act we build faith for greater things and as He leads and we follow we will discover how sure His ways are. When in doubt Obey.


Then there’s everyone else who is around us. Some genuinely think we are getting somewhere with being married to Christ and others think it is a phase.

Doubt from without comes from being teased and called names because of our convictions about Christ. Truth is, God will always give each of s personal convictions on everything and it will always conform to the Bible. People (Believers and Non- believers) will not always understand. That’s OK. Many misunderstood Christ till he fulfilled the word of God for his life.

 In all this, we must remain in prayer and bible reading. Those are sure ways to hear from God ad be led by him.

Calvary walking means falling and getting up Γ©verytime, it means asking for help when the Cross is too heavy to bear. It means despising the shame ,it means not stopping till you reach that place of complete Trust in God.

At Calvary, we would have to forgive ,we would have to endure, we would have to trust,we would have to surrender.

Jesus hang on that cross and while he was being crucified,
He forgave (Luke 23:34)

He endured (Mark 15:34)

He surrendered (Luke23:46)


Till we get to that place of total surrender, and become dead to ourselves, we may never be resurrected with Him and enjoy that Glory that our Lord Jesus did.

Puppies, cute adorable yet so stubborn. They chew on anything , the like to jump around and then bark a lot.😏 well , we got a new puppy quite recently and she is quite a hand full. Cleaning after her every morning is not my favorite chore but no pain no gain though I am not quite sure what I will be gaining.

In trying to train her so she doesn’t poop all over the house, my brother tried a new approach, he chained her to a small tree in the garden just a few minutes. A few minutes not because he wanted to like run trials or anything, we usually leave her in the porch you see , but to get her to know and do the right thing , change was necessary.she was there for a few minutes till I came out and saw her struggling to free herself. I quickly asked my brother to free her and put her somewhere more comfortable .


That’s how my insight came.  I like very comfortable situations and solutions . I runaway from stress and pressure. I hate to feel stuck, powerless and small. In our weakness His strength and  is perfected. We may be stuck somewhere just so we learn a lesson which will be useful somewhere. We may be stuck so we develop a trait that will help us go to places beyond our imaginations.

Do you feel stuck? Well sit there and enjoy the process, develop yourself mentally, emotionally and spiritually, build capacity for the journey is far.

A porter   when molding the clay took it through many phases and shapes. It probably looked out of shape a lot of times and it hated its own form and begged to be free yet it humbly obliged to every breaking will of the porter.

Many people like comfort especially me. When the word suits as we take it when it doesn’t we shun it. Funny thing is the truth will never change, was listening toTED talks and the speaker was like when we learn to be comfortable with our discomfort then we can progress.

Comfortable Christianity is really easy to fall in but it doesn’t mean be a judgmental Christian. I have learnt to deal with others in grace and in doing so I find I watch my actions more carefully praying I do not fall into temptation.

When a situation is uncomfortable, check if the discomfort is temporal. It could be a stepping stone to a greater end. Above all pray for grace to continue in the walk.

Do not be obstinate like the mule allow God to mold you

the love we forget

  To love is an art, gently take in all the irritating things with a smile . We like the love that cuddles and caresses our emotions, we like the love that makes us feel like we can be anything.the love with no itchy irritation. That the love we love.

 For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son that who so ever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

The love that comes with a form of pain, sacrifice.

The love that gives and gives and gives till all is poured out to bless another.

Love your neighbor as yourself, do good to those who despise you, bless those who curse you

The love God showed to us that he sent Jesus that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.

You do not do good to those who can and will only do you good, as Jesus said even the pagans do that. To love as our Lord and Savior did is to allow people to spit on you, ridicule you and mock you and still die to save them. This is not to say allow disrespect or do not be honest when something happens which you do not like. Correct in love and try to live in peace with all people and if it comes to worst, love them from a distance and do not shut them. Know that you are uniquely made by and for God .

I always wondered how Jesus had that strength then inrealised he prayed every morning. He spent time with the Father to be like the Father. Prayer and daily Bible study will open our hearts to to the will of the Father.

We must learn to be comfortable in our discomfort, love from God’s perspective not our own. We must allow The Holy Spirit to guide our hearts for as innocent as we may seem , the heart of a man can be deceitful as the bible states hence we must guard our hearts.
Love even when it hurts and know God is loving how you love and will ease your pain.

Arise and Shine 🌌🌌🌌🌌

If you are a member of the Church of Pentecost then you hear the youth slogan arise and shine.

If you a youth member you may have said this yourself several times. The church devotional has it imprinted on it along the youth logo.

Arise and shine!

I have never given it much thought until now.

Arise and Shine.

Arise is a deliberate action to get up. No one do it for you. You need to do it yourself.

Only light can shine.


Philippians 2v15 AMP

That you may show yourselves to be blameless and guileless, innocent and uncontaminated, children of God without blemish (faultless,unrebukable) in the midst of a crooked and wicked generation(spiritually perverted and perverse), among whom you are seen as bright lights (stars or beacons shining clearly) in the (dark) world.  

The first time I heard this verse was at a Wednesday service in my junior high, and back then I liked what the preacher said. I can’t remember the detail but then it was about Standing out. This  verse always brought him to mind.


As young people we need to make deliberate efforts to Arise.

No matter where you are or what you do, you can be better , you can go higher, you can pray more, you can study the Bible more , give more, commit more, sing more, praise more, worship more, love more, obey more….

There are still heights untapped , and you can make it your desire to achieve that.

Do not despise where you are because it is from clay God made man, and today we walk the earth.

Seek to Arise, and as you arise you will shine.

The shining is Γ€ a result of your conviction to arise .

Arise may mean making tough decisions or changes that may let others call you names or tease you but hold on.

When you begin to shine everyone who mocked at you will all say how they once knew you and how they were at some point in your life.

You want to shine then Arise.

Make the necessary decisions and changes and be a light to the world.

New Year Formulas

I remember studying Pythagoras theorem as a student . a simple formula which worked only for right-angled triangles. It wouldn't work for any other and I always wondered why. I believed mathematics is relative and no matter the formula once you get the right answer it's cool.
Sorry, but it doesn't work that way...I learned that the hardway, several try and errors.
             Life is like a mathematical equation. 
 An excuse is given only when we fail to obey.we justify why we failed to do that which was expected.
My theme from church for this year is.....listening and obeying the word of God.
I had a good first service and I will share what I learnt ...
Did you know that you can live right under the presence of God and still not hear or receive from him?
The Boy Samuel slept right where the ark of the Lord was and until God called him which he misinterpreted it till Eli the priest showed him the directions to  communicate with God.
Many are under powerful anointing and cannot tap it as they do not know how. May God grant us insight to receive. Amen.
Obedience is acting on instructions given by a superior.

One thing to always remember is obedience makes life easy! 

A formula can never be wrong. It is tested and proved and always gives the expected result.
Obeying God , his word and his revelations is a formula. It places us in a position of protection, favour and grace and life will get easy.
Don't do anything God hasn't approved ..  Don't try to help God with you wisdom, strength or intellect. Just  Obey.
All we can do is to Trust and Obey .
