THANKING GOD DESPITE ALL


Jehovah, God of Mercy
Jehovah, God of Compassion
Jehovah, God of Forgiveness
Jehovah, God of a Second Opportunity

Lord, we bring our baskets of praise to you
Not because we want you to fill them with blessings
No! No! No Lord! Our baskets are filled with your Praise
This is because we don’t know what else to bring

We thank you specially for the bad roads in this country
How you carefully take us through those roads without accident is amazing
We thank you gratefully for the state of our hospitals
How you miraculously dispense healing in those Hospitals is mind-blowing

Lord we thank you for the conditions of our Aircrafts
How you single-handedly take us across the sky is unimaginable
Lord we thank you for the non-maintenance of our public buses
How you hold the engines and brakes till our destinations is unthinkable

Lord we thank you for the Confusion in the curriculum of our Primary school system
How you organise our pupils to write the same common entrance is divine
Lord we thank you for our British-American-Irish-Arabian-Canadian-French High School System
How the students end up writing the same Jamb and end up in the same University is Spiritual


Lord we thank you for the different courses and school fees in our Private & Public Universities
Our you bring the graduates to the same Job market in search of the same jobs is unique
Lord we thank you the various methods of employing for the same job in the same Company
How the Applicants end up doing the same thing with different Salary & grade level is unbelievable

Lord we just want to thank you for the various tribes and languages of this Country
How we disagree in almost everything but yet can’t let each other go is surprising
Lord we just want to thank you for the plenty duplicated institutions in this Country
How they do almost the same thing and yet no productive result is shocking

Lord we just want to thank you for our Employers and Business Owners
How they expect you to work like oyibo staff in London and still pay you Nigerian Salary is wonderful
Lord we thank you for our Industrial Leaders and Government Leaders
How they expect you to think outside the box and yet can’t provide the necessary environment is twoderful

Lord we just wanna thank you for all our Political Rulers
How they keep Money underground instead of fixing the problems on ground is threederful
Lord we just wanna thank you for all our Political Elites
How they fly abroad to treat Malaria and yet spend billions to renovate Hospitals is fourderful

Lord, there are so many things that we need to thank you for
Lord, there are so many things you have done for us
Lord, there are so many things you are doing for this country
Lord, there are so many things you will still do for your people

Lord, we have been denied of some many basic things
Yet you have blessed us with all manners of mineral resources
Lord, the products of our resources have been buried in the graveyard
Yet you have not allowed us to be buried in poverty

If you had allowed the enemies to strike us down
Onye ka’m ga akoru? Who shall we run to?
If not for you Lord, we would have been weeded like the grass of the fields
Mana Jehovah bu Eze! You alone are King above all Kings!

If you had not paid the price of sin for us the evil ones would have devoured us
Who will fight for us? Who will be our protector?
If not for you Lord, we would have been consumed and destroyed like paper
You have defended us! You have rescued us all!

Lord we thank you for all that you did the previous week
May this week be better than the week before and the week before
And may we not bow to the pressure from the enemies and their instruments
We asked this through Jesus Christ our Savior.


AMEN!

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

WHEN WAHALA JAM GBESE! Final Episode!

My People for this Community! How una dey? Last week we started a story on Everyday People and we promised to finish the story this week.  In continuation of the story, below are the extracts from episode one: “I am saying WHEN WAHALA JAM GBESE NA PALAVA E GO GET! The problem became so much that even the neighbors became so uncomfortable with the whole arrangement. This trouble is worst anytime the Man and his wife made love in the night. Our aunty R will always pick a quarrel with the wife of the house. The most painful part is that this man will just disappear leaving the two women to dig it out with themselves. If you were in the shoes of this wife what would you do? Will you allow aunty R to squat with your family in the first instance? Will you ask your husband to drive his sister away? Will you fight your sister-in-law out of the house? Will you start a prayer program for aunty R? Will, you just allow everything to pass and hope for #BetterDaysAhead?”
