FAITHFUL FAITHFUL FATHER -13/10/2012

Great Great God!
Faithful Faithful Father!
Loving Loving Leader!
Strong Strong Shepherd!
Truthful Truthful Teacher!

Thank You once again for this week that is about to fold up.
As I sit here alone, I try to count our blessings and the promises from Your Word. You can not lie!

We have seen Your mercy in the place of judgement.
We have seen Your peace in the midst of chaos.
We have seen Your love in the evident in a hateful world.
We have seen Your Grace in for another chance (More than a second chance, even more than the numerous chances You have given us)

We have seen Your favour in the seat of labour.
We have seen Your healing in the times of sickness.
We have seen Your care in the vehicle of lack.
We have seen Your faithfulness in our unfaithful lives (We have continued in sin and Your Grace is abounding)

We have seen freedom in the place of colonialism
We have seen democracy in the place of autocracy
We have seen One Nigeria in the midst of so many tribes and tribes
We have seen Development in the midst of corruption (Even when we steal to bless the poor)

We have seen life in the times of death
We have seen food in the era of famine
We have seen safety in the days of insecurity
We have seen help in the future of flood (Lord you know we are not prepared to handle it)

What more can I say?
Even if I carry mega phone, I won't be able to say all that we have seen.
Even if I have a million mouth, that can't fit shout!!!
All these can only be possible through a loving Father who cares for His wandering children.
What else can I do?

I will praise You from everlasting to everlasting!

Lead us safely to the end of this week and usher us into another week of favour. 
Help us forget the morning-mare at Aluu
Let us sleep without night-mares.

Thank You. We pray in Jesus Name. AMEN!!!

FALLEN

Our Land was pure. The grass was green. Our Water was clean. The leaves could cure. We drank from the stream With leaves bridged to the rock as cups. As we laved our body under the heavy drops, Our body needed no cream. We were at peace The Palm wine tasted like honey. The village square was our group chat. Words were strong and laughter from the heart. Love was not bought with money. Our Farms yielded with interest. We had enough to eat and ship. Our eyes are closed when we sleep. We worked, worked and had our rest. We were not at war Our Merchants traveled South, West and North. With products of trade for exchange of coins. Women were married not just for groins. Deals were made, no one was fought. Then came the experts with hats and guns. They took our lands and made us Roomers. They deceived our neighbors and made us brothers. Our rights were taken and we became their puns. We were just neighbours They joined No

HOW THEY ALMOST WASTED MY LIFE IN LAGOS

This thing called life. On this edition of Everyday People I am talking about the story of a young life that would have been carelessly truncated. But God saved his Unique Life. Yes! This Life is Unique! It is Unique because of you. There is no other you. No where in this whole life. Yes Uniqueness. That’s what I am talking about? What makes a life unique is what the individual is. What attracts people or a market to you is that niche that distinguishes you from others. What is your unique selling point (USP)? There must be something you should be known for. I don’t know what it is but you have to think about it and create that uniqueness for yourself. What are you ready to be known for? What did Jesus die for? What did the apostles of old die for? What did Martin Luther die for? What did Ghandi die for? What did Idahosa die for? What is Adeboye living for? What does Oyedepo exist for? What is Kumuyi preaching for? The list is endless. What is Dr. Omalu sacrificing for

TO BE A FATHER

They didn’t tell me That the journey will be this far They never informed me That the heart will always be kept ajar They didn’t tell me That the shoulders will grow bigger They failed to inform me That the back will get sturdier They didn’t tell me That grown infants will call me daddy They refused to brief me That I will wipe away tears with candy They didn’t tell me That Children are not just from biological conclusion They should have told me That Fathers are made from logical submission They didn’t tell me That I will think more of other people’s needs They should have informed me That my moment of weakness will not only affect my seeds They didn’t tell me That I should be made of blocks and bricks They didn’t educate me That my bones should be strong and tick They didn’t tell me That my money will be used to buy me gifts They didn’t enlighten me That on this day I will still take them out They didn’t tell
