SPEAK ONLY IF IT WILL LIFT HER/HIS SOUL

SPEAK ONLY IF IT WILL LIFT HER/HIS SOUL

Some days, life feels perfect.
Other days it just ain’t workin.
The good, the bad, the right, the wrong
And everything in between.

Though it’s crazy, amazing
We can turn a heart with the words we say.
Mountains crumble with every syllable.
Hope can live or die

So speak Life, speak Life.
To the deadest darkest night.
Speak life, speak Life.
When the sun won’t shine and you don’t know why.
Look into the eyes of the brokenhearted;
Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope,
You speak love, you speak…
You speak Life, (oh oh oh oh oh oh) You speak Life. (oh oh oh oh oh oh)

Some days the tongue gets twisted;
Other days my thoughts just fall apart.
I do, I don’t, I will, I won’t,
It’s like I’m drowning in the deep.

Well it’s crazy to imagine,
Words from our lips as the arms of compassion,
Mountains crumble with every syllable.
Hope can live or die.

So speak Life, speak Life.
To the deadest darkest night.
Speak life, speak Life.
When the sun won’t shine and you don’t know why.
Look into the eyes of the brokenhearted;
Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope,
You speak love, you speak…
You speak Life, (oh oh oh oh oh oh) You speak Life. (oh oh oh oh oh oh)

Lift your head a little higher,
Spread the love like fire,
Hope will fall like rain,
When you speak life with the words you say.

Raise your thoughts a little higher,
Use your words to inspire,
Joy will fall like rain,
When you speak life with the things you say.

Lift your head a little higher,
Spread the love like fire,
Hope will fall like rain,
When you speak life with the words you say.

So speak Life, speak Life.
To the deadest darkest night.
Speak life, speak Life.
When the sun won’t shine and you don’t know why.
Look into the eyes of the brokenhearted;
Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope,
You speak love, you speak…
You speak Life, (oh oh oh oh oh oh) You speak Life. (oh oh oh oh oh oh)

You speak Life, (oh oh oh oh oh oh) You speak Life. (oh oh oh oh oh oh)

Some days life feels perfect.

“Fighter”

Seven bucks an hour
Bills stacked on the counter
Got a baby on the way, they’ll have to feed
His pride is gettin’ torn down
His confidence is worn out
This ain’t the way he dreamed that it would beBut he won’t ever ask why
‘Cause he’s made up his mind

He’s a fighter, got that fire
When they thought he’d fade away
Throws a fist up, as he gets up
Feelin’ stronger everyday
When he gets down on his knees, he finds
The courage to believe
He’s a fighter, he’s a fighter
Who inspires me

She’s got no time for make-up
When she’s got three boys to wake up
Never thought she’d have to raise them on her own
And some days she feels like cryin’
But she’s holdin’ on, survivin’
On the love that makes their little house
A home

And she sees it in their eyes
All the reasons why, yeah

She’s a fighter, got that fire
When you thought she’d fade away
Throws a fist up, as she gets up
Feelin’ stronger everyday
When she gets down on her knees,
She finds the courage to believe
She’s a fighter, she’s a fighter
Who inspires me, oohooo
She inspires me, yeah

She’s been here before
And she’s only eight years old
But she knows the name of every nurse she sees
And though she don’t like the chemo
She waits it out, never losin’ hope that
Someday soon she’ll be cancer-free

She’s a fighter, got that fire
When they thought she’d fade away
Throws a fist up, keeps her head up
Feelin’ stronger everyday
When she gets down on her knees,
She finds the courage to believe
She’s a fighter, she’s a fighter
Who inspires, yeah
He’s a fighter, he’s a fighter
Who inspires me
He inspires me

WAITT

THE SINGLE LADIES-
WHILE AM WAITING!!!
There is a picture I have in my memory lane that will never fade, that of my husband. When I get into that realm, you really don’t want to wake me up, really it’s funny.
To be candid, ladies these are those things we think about some times when we are busy or most times when we are less busy. Every girl has a mental picture of her prince charming, and to be truthful we JESUS babes aren’t any different. We want this either tall or short, chubby or slim, tongue speaking or native language speaking praying, fair or dark guys we hope someday we get married to.
There is absolutely nothing wrong about that, because it is not good that man be alone- so says the Lord.
Where we get it wrong is when we try to fix the process ourselves and we aren’t trying to hear God on this matters. To be truthful, sometimes we feel lonely and then we have this urge to get someone who makes us an important part of their world. One thing of notice I want us to know is, we can’t skip some process which have some deep biblical roots and values and sure it isn’t outdated.
• Fall in love with God- Jesus should always be our first love, search for the Lord with all of your heart, accept His hand of friendship, learn His dos and don’ts. This step is the most important

2d5b1248f2541621400177fd31dfcfd0
Respect- how can God give us a good man, when we can’t respect those in charge of us which is our parents or guardians. A real lady knows how to respect her parents or guardian just like Esther with Mordecia. If she was disrespectful to him, he would never bring her to the competition. Vashti was dethroned because she didn’t go through that process and she messed up when she got to the position. Don’t skip it

PARENTS
Cooperation with the spirit– I can say that the holy spirit was yet to come in the days of Esther, but she listened carefully to and won the favour of Hegai in charge of them that he gave her the best of treatment
Our Hegai can be likened to the Holy Spirit today, how much do you listen and cooperate with Him on every matters of your life.

559d3c9aa11c45d68a946da81e37fc82
Diligent preparations- we should never think we can skip that step of preparations, how can we be given to a king if we behave less of a queen. Esther was thoroughly prepared for a year before she was brought before her king. My dear your king is waiting, submit yourself for a thorough fixing and refining. It will be worth it. ALSO PRAY AND FAST ABOUT IT

COOL
Have you seen proverbs 31 vs 10? Do you fall within those verses, do you have such qualities. Be truthful, if not we all need to be worked upon. Get busy with your God given visions, get lost into God, that a man only in God can find you. Stop wasting precious days dating all kind of guys.Have fun and be friendly to all guys. BE true to yourself.

YEA

I Know you have got your career to pursue, then do it. Don’t get  into the idea sitting idle and call it waiting. make youself the lady you love to see

Wait and get the necessary treatment and qualities a queen needs, then and there your King will have to find you and treat you like a queen that you are.
Trust me, when he arrives, you will just be like- THANK GOD I WAITED.

I MAKE MY DECISIONS!!!!!

REALLY WHO MAKES IT?

REALLY WHO MAKES IT?

So many times, i really think about how people especially we youth think that our decision is made without any greater influence. Let me let you into this though i know little. These things stated below really makes your decision:

  • CULTURE- Your culture affects the way you think , reacts and interact with people
  • ENVIRONMENT – Your environment and the people around affects your acts and behavior
  • FAMILY AND FRIENDS- Who you spend your time with and roll with determines how far you will go or how low you will sink. Show me your friends and i will tell you what you do best
  • BELIEFS- Your interest and beliefs creates the life you live. To be honest with you, it is either God or the devil. There is no middle place , who you worship in your life determines what you do in life. Even if you say i don’t worship No GOD, you worship what you love the most either you like it or not.

Your decisions are greatly determined by  these things . so my advice, take out your time to see into these things in your life. Some may have caused you grievous mistakes but the good news is there is still time for a change .

My candid advice, create your environment, know what and who to listen to. Know what to absorb and what to rejects, know what you think about. It really determines your decision and your height in life.

ARE YOU REALLY WAITING?

ARE YOU ACTUALLY WAITING

WAITING IS A PROCESS

In my little experience, i have learnt that waiting entails process.

There are times when you know God is preparing for something so big that when He tells you of His promises, you are almost the happiest person on earth. Am i wrong?

Are you tired of it all, are you  wondering if He is real and perhaps His promises? Is there a situation that its remembrance kicks you into a world of despair and discouragement, that you lose courage and sight of every good stuff you have.

The Word  doesn’t use waiting most times, we are familiar with words like patience, hope, faith, perseverance and the likes. The most amazing thing is that Waiting involves and produces fruits mentioned above.

What we don’t know is that, God is preparing us for the future, and sweethearts it involves steps. What i am sure of is that if we just roll with God every step of the way, we will be excited at each stage because there is just always something new.

Don’t just get so lost into the expected gift that you lose sight of its giver. This is a learning process and drilling process. Just chill out buddy, it will be worth the wait.

I leave you with this

DO NOT LET THIS HAPPY TRUST IN THE LORD DIE AWAY, NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS. REMEMBER YOUR REWARD. YOU NEED TO KEEP ON PATIENTLY DOING GOD’S WILL IF YOU WANT HIM TO DO FOR YOU ALL HE HAS PROMISED.                                              SEARCH IT OUT IN HEBREWS 10. LOL. Your Homework

Finally- If all you say is                                                                                                 I HAVE WAITED LONG ENOUGH!!THEN YOU AREN’T WAITING ACTUALLY.

SHHHH!!!!T’S YOUR ATTITUDE

  • I Have Seen Wise Folks Poor….

For some reasons even the most brilliant guys in your college or high school back then didn’t make it like you thought they would

I could tell a few reasons, as av seen and learned. This is applicable to everyone who isn’t satisfied with his or her present status

AttitudeIsEverything

  • Stop looking for help out there, look within  and search for your real abilities and strengths
  • Work upon this strength, surf the internet, read books abt it and get better at it
  • Get close to those who have achieved success in this line and work with and for them. #Be humble
  • Create the right network and friends deliberately. Those who see far like you do and most times those in your passion line
  • Be active on social media, market your work  and be nice to all .
  • Encourage yourself when the job gets hectic, be diligent , honest and punctual. Hold your integrity and values firm. It musnt drop
  • Know when to say no to people in a polite way when you dont feel in into their idea.

See positive things always and give space for constructive criticism. Be true to yourself

Finally the most important is:

Commit your ways into His hands and He will direct your path. Chow chow!!!lol…c ya

It’s JUST A MOVIE..YIMU

Really going through the history of some our browsers can be surprising for those who forget to delete them.

Surfing the internet is almost the easiest thing for a youth. Of course i am not judging anyone because i was once addicted to pornography even though i got stalked to it when i wasnt saved buh even i got saved to my surprise it didn’t leave cos i left the loopholes unblocked.

Counting my anniversary over this act made me put up this writing for those who are stalked to it and those just coming into it

This is it, pornography steals your time, your thoughts, your morale and pushes you to a dead end of addiction just like a smoker or the weed guys. Dont be fooled by its harmless nature…eg it startsfrom wanting more after watching movies like fifty shades of grey, obscene movies..

Be careful to guard what you see which definately guards your heart. Most def i will still talk more on this. Buh till then..stay safe folks…
