THE POWER OF INTERCESSION

So, I know it’s been eons since you last saw a blog post from me. Let’s not blame it on time and procrastination, let’s blame it on the fact that I’ve allowed procrastination become a part of me but this second half of the year, I’m taking doing away with it. Amen!

So, the Holy Spirit has actually dropped this one in my heart to be shared for about 3 months now and guess what? Your baby girl has been procrastinating.

I’ll start by asking this simple but yet important question. Have you ever been led to pray for someone?

If yes, how did you feel about it and is it something you would consider yourself to keep doing?

If no, that’s understandable but is it something you feel you should do and would you be trying it out?

It’s important as humans and Christians that we take time to shift the focus off of ourselves and intercede for someone.

So, a few years ago, I was a part of a bridal train and the bride who happened to be a Christian sister as from church has this imbalance with her legs. I became deeply concerned, wondering how she would carry a child; take care of the child etc. So many thoughts kept coming to my mind and I was deeply troubled for her.

On one of those days when I was pondering on her case, the Holy Spirit put it in my heart to intercede for her, and I did that.

Maybe not consistently, but I made sure I whispered a word of prayer to God on her behalf, I kept at it. There were even times I’d see a pregnant woman and she would come to my mind and I’ll just smile and imagine that she was the one.

Fast forward to one Wednesday, I saw her in church and we got talking and she told me she was pregnant, I couldn’t contain my joy even though I knew as it was becoming obvious but common sense makes us know we mustn’t say all that we see. I can’t remember what brought about our discussion later on and she told me about how she had undergo a surgery that almost took her life and the doctor told her she wouldn’t bear children and all that ‘the doctor said’ and there she was, standing right in front of me pregnant with her now two years old son. Let me tell you something, she is expecting baby number two. You never know what impact your prayer is making until the results begin to manifest.

In 2019, I was battling depression for three months plus and you know, I couldn’t pinpoint what was actually wrong, but I suddenly became so sad and unhappy and angry and upset with life. It got so bad to a point that the devil started putting suicidal thoughts in my head.

And all the while I didn’t know people were watching or so observant of my mood change because in my church I was the ‘life of the party’. You could never see me unhappy or sad.

So, this amazing brother in church who I didn’t even know was so observant on the sudden mood change from Nicole started interceding for me without my knowledge, and gradually when I started returning back to my usual self.

Now, I didn’t know what was happening but the good thing about it was that, I knew I had a lot of support around me.

One Sunday morning in church, Pastor says he’ll like a few people to come out and give a testimony about something God did for them, this brother comes out, we are all expecting to hear what God did for him and he says He is just so thankful to God that I was back to my normal self, I just stayed in my seat and was crying.

You know, you never know how God would use to impact the life of another even without your knowledge or their knowledge but it is important to know that if He has put it in your heart, it’s because He sees a result from your intercession.

Lately, in church, we’re being admonished to pray for lost souls, everyone in need of a miracle and even for our country, Nigeria.

Truth is, inasmuch as we may seem to get weary of the constant intercession for the nations of the world, it is the best we can do while those in the place of power would do what deem fit. Our prayers aren’t to encourage them to keep doing the evil they’ve been at. Our prayer of intercession is mainly because we know and trust that God alone has the power to turn their hearts around because, like my Pastor would say, evil will always prevail where good men do nothing.

(Read Exodus 9:12)

Who are the good men? You and I. We are the ones standing in the gap, the gap of intercession praying for the rest of the world.

You’ve been led to intercede for someone or something; do not think twice about it because you could even be saving a life by doing so.

Till you come across my next blog post,

Keep interceding.

Promptings of the Spirit

This blog title came to my mind about a little over a week ago when I had an encounter that actually saved a life.
Call it a testimony. Yeah🤪

Now let me start by saying; you can never go wrong with the voice of the spirit.

Yes. The Holy Spirit. I can hear him almost all the time.

Over the years, there were times I’ve felt reluctant about doing something I ought to do that and that always ended up with a ‘not-so-good-news’.

So back to my testimony – I had to run an errand for the office on this beautiful Tuesday evening and while I was returning, I found a guy by the road side. Apparently he ran out of air while trying to use his ventilator (inhaler) because he was asthmatic, twenty years old me would have pitifully passed.


But then, a still. Small. Calm. Soothing. And only the voice of the Holy Spirit, said ‘go back there, you can do something’.

And without thinking twice, I rushed to his side, held him up and started puffing the ventilator into his mouth.
I kept hearing voices, ‘covid this, social distancing that’.

Deep down I was scared but why the fear when it was He who lived in me that prompted me to do what I was doing?

By then, a young man had parked his car and came to help and before long, people started coming close. I kept on puffing the ventilator into his mouth until he made a sound and blinked his eyes…

He regained concioisness after a few more puffs and requested for drip. An ambulance was called and I went my way.
I had done what He wanted me to do. To help.

Now, what the Holy Spirit might be requesting of you could be to wipe the tears on the face of a weeping child, or see to it that a widow can help cater for her children due to some sort of assistance you rendered or that you helped an old woman cross a very busy express with the load of ‘mangala’ (dry fish) she was carrying.
It could be something as little as saying ‘excuse me please’. You just can never go wrong with His promptings.

I’ve had several encounters but this testimony right here inspired this particular blog title.

What’s that one thing the Holy Spirit has asked you to do?
What’s that one assignment He’s kept reminding you to carry out?
Why the delay?

Like me, I understand we sometime feel too scared or shy to do those things but even the Bible let’s is know in Matthew 16:24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross [expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me].

Even Jesus the master knew the disciples were going to have doubts in their hearts when they made up their mind to follow Him.

I’ve made up my mind to stick with these promptings I get from time to time and I’m learning to follow as He guides.

Ps – I also have a sad encounter about not yielding to the promptings. It actually happened a week before, but I think this recent encounter was a way of God reminding me that I could right my wrongs in so many ways.

Until you search through my next post, remember to always yield to the Spirit’s promptings.

Love,
Nicole 💕

Post Achievement Depression

Have you ever felt something I’d like to describe as a ‘post-achievement depression’ not depression per say, but that feeling where after getting some major things done, you end up forgetting you should be grateful and asking your self the ‘what next?’ question with a sigh in your heart.

I actually even went online to find out if that was even a thing and realized it was an absolutely ‘normal’ thing but I don’t like that idea of normal.
I like the idea of being extremely happy after a big break and being proud of myself and the little I’ve been able to do.
So, I went through other people’s stories and realized a lot of people actually deal with this ‘thing’.

Like I said earlier, I don’t like this type of normal but I honestly see it as the devil’s way of trying to make you feel under-achieved and undeserving. I said what I said.

I had that feeling some months back.
Thankfully, things fell into place for me, one after the other. I was happy and negatively overwhelmed at the same and then I was like, ‘so, is this it?’,
And then, there were some funny questions playing in my head.
Questions like, ‘what next?’, do you feel good about this?, ‘you need do better than this’, ‘this isn’t good enough’, ‘you can do more’.
Of course I need to do more, its called the growth process. I can’t grow overnight.

And while discussing with someone some days back, it occurred to me that it’s the way our mind has been programmed to think.
More is expected of us even after earning something so big.

We live every day, forgetting that we have a greater purpose and that while achieving all we prayed for years back, we give the devil room to make us question stupidly if we’ve done enough.

If you’ve ever have this feeling after a big break, don’t ignore it. Pay absolute attention to it.
Affirm the right words.
Encourage yourself and never fail to remind yourself that you’ve come so far and deserve all that’s coming to you.

How to overcome Post-achievement Depression


1. Live by God’s word.


What does the word of God says about you?

God’s plan for you is that you live a joyful, happy and glorious life.
1 Peter 2:9 gives us details of who we are and how we ought to live. God has called you to show forth the virtues of His perfection.

2. Get yourself some praise.

Uh uh, oh yes! Instead of waiting for someone else to commend you for a job well done. Like I’ll always say, sip wine in a bathtub and celebrate those seemingly small but great feats.
Your goals are yours that’s what they’re personal, what do you need the world’s applause for when you can appreciate you some more. Everyday.

3. On your marks! Set! Start working towards your next goal.

Bring it on. Share your ideas with like minds. Upgrade the energy used in the previous goal on this new one and watch yourself swim through how proud you are of you.

4. Enjoy every process invested.
The highs. The lows.

All achievement is an achievement. The effort put into it is what produces the end results. Enjoy the joy you deserve.

Until you scroll across my next post,
Don’t stop shining even if the light fades out.

Love,
Nicole.

Ps – I actually used the word ‘Post-achievement depression’ before I when found out it was a word.

Forgiveness (A four letter word)

Some days ago at the office, I was observing a quiet time at there as there was little or nothing to do.
While I spoke to God, the Holy Spirit dropped it in my heart to pray for a forgiving spirit especially concerning those hurts I still carried without knowing.

I pondered on it, I argued about it in my spirit, I asked why, the Holy Spirit made me understand that most times I am bitter and sad about ‘life’ not just because of the present things happening to me in the now but because there are some hurts I have unconsciously refused to let go.

Sometimes, you may forgive a person just because you don’t want them to feel bad about what they did to you.

What about how you? How do you feel?
Does that hurt completely always go away? Does it stay, lingering and refusing to let go or heal?

What does the Bible say about forgiveness?

The Bible commands us to forgive others. God doesn’t give us the option.

If you read through Colossians 3:13, it says, “Bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive and also in James 2:13, which says, “For judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.” If we are living with unforgiveness, we are living outside of the will of God.

Hmmm, how profound.

Forgiveness in my term would be freedom. Freedom from the hate lurking in your heart from the hurt caused by another.

Forgiveness to another could mean giving someone a second chance to make it right.

Offering forgiveness to others is one of the most challenging, but life-giving aspects of the Christian faith. In forgiving we find healing for our own hearts, our own pains and the hurts we bear. When we forgive, we become like Christ in offering mercy and grace in love.

No human is beyond forgiveness.

Forgiveness as they say is more for you that for the person who must have hurt you.

There’s a joy that comes with reconciliation.
Titus 3:4-7.

The ability to forgive explains how deep in love a person walks.
When you walk with God, you’ll walk in love.

And as you go through your day, I want you to come to terms in understanding that Forgiveness is a four letter word.

Love

How do you say you love God and lack the ability to love -though it can be quite difficult- when you walk with God, you have the Holy Spirit who makes it easy a thing to do.

Are you out there today and you seem to be finding it difficult to find a place in your heart to forgive a friend, a brother, a sister, mother, father, a relative, etc. There’s a simple and short prayer for you when you scroll down.

Here are some key points I got from a book on forgiveness I read online.

1. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you any unforgiveness in your heart. Whether the wound is large or small, you must engage in forgiveness for it to heal properly. Ask God to give you courage to forgive today.

2. Meditate on God’s command for you to forgive others. Make God’s word the foundation of your actions rather than your own desires or fears. God will always guide you into what is absolutely best for you. You have to trust him at his word and obey.

3. Meditate on the forgiveness and mercy you have been shown in Christ.

‘Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. ‘
Colossians 3:13

A PRAYER FOR YOU Sweet Jesus, thank you for the gift of forgiveness. I’ve been hurt and bitter about past hurts, but I’m willing to to let go of every pain, resentment, anger, bitterness and grudge I hold against anyone today moving forward.
I receive a whole new heart from you. A heart free from pain, anger, bitterness and resentment.
Thank you for teaching me to forgive those who may have hurt me and to love them past their mistakes against me. Amen!

Owning to your mistakes.

On my own terms, I’ll define mistake as an honest unintentional error one makes during the course of an event, be it personal or collective.

One thing that doesn’t define you as a person are the mistakes you must have made. No matter how terrible they may be.
You made those unforgivable mistakes out of ignorance or immaturity of the mind but that doesn’t mean you are your mistakes.

Mistakes are integral aspects of human life which will be taking me to the growth process, I wrote about this some months back.

You can’t grow without a few mess ups here and there but that doesn’t mean you should continually make those mistakes.

I hear people often say, it was a good mistake, but I don’t think there is anything as such, if a mistake was made, it was made with an honesty of heart which makes it unintentional.

You’ve made a mistake, Now what?
1. Fess up and acknowledge: This one right here is growth. No one wants to baby a grown adult.
2. Do NOT apportion blames: No one wants to go around blaming others for what clearly seems to be their faults.
3. Fix it if you can: Fix it if you can and with the right team. Always seek support in areas of mis-understanding.
4. Apologize to anyone affected.
5. Reflect on your mistake (Address the root cause): Think about how to avoid and not make the same mistake. again.
6. Change your ways and don’t dwell on that one mistake.

While some mistakes cannot be changed, some can be corrected.

Till you come accross my next blogpost,
Keep in mind that YOU ARE NOT your mistakes.

Christmas – Shared love and happiness

Feeling-Christmassy-yet-

It’s once again that wonderful time of the year to paint the world in red, green and gold, time to spark up love and laughter, beauty and fun in the hearts of our loved ones topping it with shades of sparkles.

Oh, yeah!

It’s Christmas!

Growing up, one of the fun things I loved about Christmas was the joy that came from the inside about the season.

It was such a special season for me.
In my house, I used to be the Christmas vibe.
I’d use my pocket money which I’d probably saved a month before Christmas to get balloons and ribbons and do what my little fingers would manage to do.

I was in really high spirits one Christmas, I bought several shades of card boards and cut them into shapes and sizes writing ‘Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year’ bold letters. I then waited till every family in the compound had slept, then I took those cut out shapes, went to the door of every family and started pasting them on their doors with a glue being careful not to wake them up with my deeds. (I’m smiling with happy tears running down my cheeks as I type this)

Wow, Christmas has a feel of it’s own.
The joy that comes with the season.

The beauty it brings.

all you need

There are days I look back on the things I did and tell myself I was just being childish but in all honesty, I am glad and happy I did them, cause even at a young age, I knew there was so much love I was willing to share with the human race.

I’d leave you with a quote as always,

Christmas is about the little things that may not seem to matter but truly matters. 

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas full of colourful lights, dangling balls, beautiful green trees and love, filled in the hearts of those you love, and I hope that wherever you are in the world reading this, you are with the people you hold dear to your heart.

Make sure to love yourself a Merry little Christmas because that sure is all you need.

Overcoming Grief

In dealing with grief, there are certain things to consider with those grieving.
Grief comes uninvited and takes up residence unexpectedly.

No one ever wishes to grief over the loss of their loved one.
But truth is, at some point in our lives, we all are bound to go through the process of grieving.

But even in the process of grieving, we should always remember that God is amidst us.

His love is a shield.

Recently, my grandma died, and from the look of things, she was probably in her early nineties, I grieved the first day I got the news cause we shared a bond, but then, I think its something I’m used to but done with.My heart raced immediately to my dad and his voice that day on phone didn’t sound alright coming from a man who had lost it all except us (me and him).

Hopefully, someday I’ll be able to share my experience in overcoming grief, cause these is one area in my entire life I love avoiding.

Dr. Phil said, ‘You can love, loose and survive. You can fall to your knees and cry in pain, you can feel horrible, crippling emptiness, yet recover and fill yourself up again. We all seem to survive after every misery grief brings’.

1. In dealing with the pain of grief, it’s important to give yourself time to accept what has happened.
Figuring out how to get through it all shouldn’t be your first priority but you should have it at the back of your mind.Going AWOL on support from family and friends who are there to help see you through the grieving period could magnify your grief.Irrespective of how bad you’re hurting, a day to grieve it all off will definitely find it’s way home to you.

2. In grieving, accept that your emotions are natural but not try not to overdo it.
Experiencing the death of a loved one isn’t a life sentence.

Your experience would go a long way would go a long way in days to come.
Remember, God wouldn’t let you go through that which you can’t handle.
You’ll definitely start moving on at your own pace, don’t rush the process but make sure its forward.

3. The humans who have made themselves available to you at such a time didn’t show up by mere coincidence. They are the lights that have made themselves visible at such a dark phase in the life of a grieving person.

4. No one would ever come beat you over why you’re still grieving cause no one has the right to.

We all grief differently, but getting stuck while grieving won’t help you solve the puzzle or change what must have happened.

• Don’t get stuck in anger and bitterness.
• Don’t get stuck in pain and misery.
• Don’t get stuck in the darkness, regrets and self pity.
• Don’t get stuck in the cloud of grief andWhen it’s all been said and done, focus on returning to who you were before tragedy struck.

I wish I was wise enough to tell my dad this years ago, but who was I to even say it when I was in a world of my own misery.

Beware, a previous addiction could resurface if you fail to hold it all together.

5. Living your best life wasn’t intended for your to make it reckless. Your time is still valuable and should be used wisely. Live your best life everyday. Positively.There is a value learnt in every experience of grief someone must have gone through.I hold the belief that people are allowed to face their grief shamelessly.

In consoling a grieving person:

1. Say the right things. It took me a while to understand this. They expect you to say something comforting but not right, cause it might not be to them at that point in time. Whatever you say, be gentle with your speech.

2. Research shows that grieving people do not need to hear about your own or someone else’s loss at that time. Like I said earlier, we all grief differently. Their loss is all they can handle at that point in time.

3. You don’t necessarily have to belong to the ‘inner cirle’ of friends of a grieving person. That friend they look up to in most cases may not be there at that point in time to light up their world. See yourself as a light in the heart of a grieving being.

You could end up filling that gap, not immediately, but with time

In helping someone going through grief:

1. Do not let the fears about saying or doing the wrong thing stop you from reaching out.

2. Let your grieving loved one know that you are always there for them.

3. Understand that everyone grieves differently.

4. Maintain your support after all has been said and done. (funeral e.t.c)

5. There is no right or wrong way to grieve.

6. Always watch out for signs of depression.

I’m open to receiving questions and also suggestions on the aforementioned blog post title.

The Brown Skin Girl – A lyrics for the human race

Oh, have you looked in the mirror lately?
Wish you could trade eyes with me
There’s complexities in complexion
But your skin, it glow like diamonds
Dig me like the earth, you be giving birth
Took everything in life, baby, know your worth
I love everything about you, from your nappy curls
To every single curve, your body natural
Same skin that was broken be the same skin takin’ over
Most things out of focus, view
But when you’re in the room, they notice you
‘Cause you’re beautiful

Did anyone ever take out time to study this lyrics?

Beyonce wasn’t just talking about the beauty beheld in a brown skin.
Yes!
I’m also dark skinned and I’ve never loved my skin like I do lately.

But then again,
Racism was being shamed!

Oh, have you looked in the mirror lately?
Wish you could trade eyes with me,
There’s complexities in complexion”

As humans , what do you see in the mirror? A human with a skin so dark you’re haunted by the shame of what the white skin human would say to you?
Or one who isn’t just proud to be dark skinned.

‘Same skin that was broken be the same skin takin’ over’

What does this brown skinned human see when he looks in the mirror….
Shame and horror of what the white folk thought he was.
Or sadness and pain, cause he felt he was never going to be good enough.

The line above has to be my favourite line in this song.

Think about what racism caused the black man and still is doing in some parts of the countries abroad.
Did anyone ever stop to think that the reason the white man shamed the skin of the blacks was cause they could feel our superiority over them in their glory. But come on, every skin, coloured or white has an incomparable glory it holds.

The brown skin human probably smells like glory and grace, beauty and sunshine, hope and happiness, you name it.

But then, we weren’t given our complexions for the complexities of others.
We were given this covering on our skin to compliment the human race.

We are our own support.
We are the support we need.

The world doesn’t need an alien to come save us.
It needs us to save us.

Gratitude As An Art

It’s normal of us as humans to count the number of times we failed, but fail to acknowledge the number of times we were blessed enough to scale through and overcome a particular difficult situation.

We allow our minds wander, comparing ourselves to the over achievers.
You say to yourself, ‘why me’?
You fail to acknowledge all the successes you’ve made.

Now, let’s define Gratitude. I’m certain most of us are aware of what this means but how well do we allow its meaning become a part of us?

Gratitude is an act of thankfulness, an immense feeling that encourages us to acknowledge and appreciate someone’s act of love to us. It could be in kind or more, and also to repay them for it. Repaying them not because they demanded for it, but because a part of us knows it’s the right thing to do.

Gratitude, with a positive expression creates room for greater blessings .
The beauty of gratitude can be expressed in ways we tend to overlook.

There’s something about the way I show how grateful I am, the moment I express my gratitude to whatever it that was being done to and for me, there’s this unfathomable joy that wells up in my Spirit.

The joy of my face tends to expose me most times.

Lol.
The tears as well, I tear up real quick and easy cause gratitude for me is an expression of my emotions regardless.

Most times in life, especially in the face of difficult situations, we keep on blaming why a certain project didn’t turn out the way it ought to forgetting that there were days when that same project turned out awesomely well. Did we show appreciation for that?

We need to learn to start appreciating the little things and by so doing, attracts the greater blessings.

Don’t be too overwhelmed to not show an act of appreciation.

You can start out by creating a few days of gratitude.
I did that last year, 32days to my birthday and it was indeed a wonderful experience.

Mid-Year Thanksgiving is in the air, use this as an opportunity to repay that act of love that was shown to you. The last six months has been tremendous, the next six months is bound to be greater.

A grateful heart, attracts miracles.

Have you ever felt the joy of gratitude?
What are you grateful for?
How would you share your gratitude with others?
Would you love to share or add something to all that’s been said.

Kindly share in the comment section.
Thank you!

Stay Blessed!

How Though Are You Hanging On?

Sometimes you hang on without really knowing why you do.

Hanging on without a reason but knowing there’s something keeping you up.

Recently, thoughts, depressing thoughts caused by known and unknown depressive situations have been roaming through my head and it has dealt a great deal with me.

Sometimes, I can find my chill.
I feel my happiness is being tampered with.

But then again, I scold myself for knowing what to do and not doing it. But, then again, I can’t seem to find the strength to do this. (Pray)

As I said earlier on, we sometimes hang on not knowing why we are doing so.
Truth is, I’ve been hanging on without a reason but then again, it seems that’s all I can do at the moment and that I’ll just do.

To you out there,
Just hang on!
Hang in there!
Life, truly is sweet even in the most undeserving situations.
Don’t let some hurtful incidence cloud your mind so much that you forget there were some and will always be happy times.

I tell myself everyday that suicide isn’t an option no matter what.
You have the word of God.
You have light.
You have your lips, use it to say the right words.
You have a reason to still hang on.

Decide how tough you want to be and be as tough as you’ve made up your mind to be.

By all means;
Do hang in there.

How Big is Your Heart?

What’s Inside Your Heart?

How do we size up other people? What do we do to get ahead in this world? Many times, we judge by the way we dress, talk, carry ourselves. Do we have the right accent? Did we come from an exclusive school? People look at the model of our cellphone, the brand on our bags and T-shirts. Is it a designer label? Is the real thing or imitation? They check out the kind of car we drive and where we park it for the night–in an exclusive neighborhood, in a classy condominium?

We live in a world of sham and show, sell and tell. Keeping up can be tiresome, time-consuming and expensive. And what we project can be far from what we really are inside.

Maybe that is why Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came into our world without fanfare and in such humble circumstances. He shared his nursery with goats, sheep and donkeys. He grew up in a tiny town called Nazareth, definitely the wrong address to choose in Israel. One apostle was quoted as saying, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” His father, Joseph, was a working-class Jew, a carpenter, and he too was trained as a laborer. Several of His closest friends were uneducated fishermen with rough, calloused hands.

Christ’s true Kingdom is glorious, beyond anything we can imagine. But perhaps he came so humbly to show the world what it had become: boastful, shallow, materialistic, hypocritical.

He also came to give us the real thing–true wealth, prestige, power and influence as children of the living God. What we really are will only be revealed when He comes again.

When Jesus returns as King of Kings to Israel, he won’t judge us by how high up in our career we managed to get, how famous or popular we have become, or how we multiplied our money into millions. He is going to check out if we truly loved God and one another. So let’s focus our lives on that. Let’s not waste time looking good on the outside, buying things for show, winning the applause of men. As the Lord says in 1 Samuel 16:7, “The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

Be blest with a heart that is faithful and full of God’s love!

Hello March!

It’s the beginning of the third month of the year.
How do you intend grabbing hold of the next opportunity that comes your way?

I woke up this morning with so much to think and be thankful about, and I said to myself, ‘you need to add a little bit more effort in your day to day activities’.

I’m grateful for the last two months, but for the month of march, being more committed to the things I’ve set my mind to do is more of like a goal I plan to achieve this month.
It could be in my time, what I spend my time doing.

It could be in my act of love, am I doing it for the world to see or for the rewarder of diligence to bless me in open.

It could be in my service to humanity, living like Christ is a lifestyle we should all practice for that is true religion.
Next time is an opportunity and using it to effect positive changes is one of the greatest things we would be gifting not just ourselves but to the world as a whole.

Being famous isn’t a criteria for success, your popularity starts from here you decide to begin.
