ENCOUNTER ME -29/10/2012

The Invincible God!!!
Yet visible in my everyday life.

The unchangeable God!!!
Yet changing every unpleasant situation in my life.

The Most Righteous God!!!
Yet paying for my unrighteousness. 

The Consuming Fire!!!
Yet did not consume me in my faults.

I come before the cross
I come not to count my loss
My shame. My guilt. All gross
I return back to the cross.

Not in my ability
I rather glory in my disabilities
Because that's where you show up
Surprising the strong with the weak

My fears are chasing my faith out of my fragile frame
I desire this. But my heart says that.
Boldness to me is like a mirage.
Why? They say I have grace but I see myself on grass.

They hail me as a hero
I see a loser in the mirror
They say I am exceptional but I think I am ordinarily
Why? They look up to me but I look down on myself.

The God that helped Jabez
I come to the cross
Where my darkness turned to light
Where my shame became my glory
Where my pain became my gain
Where I first met You. 

It's not like before...Where my heart long to swim in worship
It's not like before...When prayer was a a culture
It's not like before...What gives me joy is just fellowship
It's not like before...
It's not like .....
Oh God........For the times I fell sick because I missed a fellowship meeting
It used to be routine. Miss Fellowship=Fall sick! 
But now....missing the gathering of Your people makes no effect.

I come back to the cross. Start a new work in me.
The experience of Patmos.......
Maybe I need the experience of Damascus. Really?
Just give me an encounter oh Lord!
Forgive me for not saying thank You for last week....the Spirit was willing but my flesh didn't allow me.

Thank You! Thank You!! Thank You!!! 
For another chance....Thank You.
For waiting at the cross...Thank You.

Take away from me the attitude of the Pharisees...
I won't continue in sin because of Grace. 
I need Your presence once again. A tangible experience.

Because if I encounter You. 
Through me You will encounter my neighbours. 
Through my neighbours You will encounter my street.
Through my street you will encounter the area.
Through the area You will encounter the community.
Through the community You will encounter the Town.
Through the town You will encounter the City.
Through the City You will encounter the State.
Through the State You will encounter the Region.
Through the region You will encounter the Country.
And My Nigeria will be a better place, nation and home for all seeking rest.

Grant this prayer of change starting from me 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

OPERATION SAVE OUR DISPENSARY

THE RENOVATED SCHOOL DISPENSARY So, we all left FGC Okigwe in 2000. Wow! That was 16 years ago! We were known as the Millennium Set. The Y2K Set.  16 Years down the line we have seen other sets hold Reunions and Parties and nothing for our Set due to the mindset that we were not united. Although, we had been meeting each other in tranches and batches at various Universities, Cities, Countries and everywhere. Of course, clicks maintained their clicks, friends maintained their friendships and people also went different ways. With the advent of cellular phones and social media (especially Facebook), hooking up became less difficult. As we began to reconnect among ourselves through the various FGC Okigwe Groups and Pages on Facebook, memories began to rewind and flashbacks became real.  The major consequences of these Flashbacks were a mixture of anger, revenge and “yabbings” that resulted from the numerous punishments, extortion, heart-breaks and what have you that hap
