REMOVE THE STIGMA

‪Sister is dying inside ‬

‪She cannot speak out‬

‪She could not ask for help‬

‪No one could read her mind‬

No one could understand her

‪Because it doesn’t seem normal ‬

‪She doesn’t want to be ostracized‬

‪Now she’s getting worse and no cure‬

We still don’t know what or the cause

So let’s begin a new culture of openness

Remove the stigma‬ and you could save some

#Mentalhealth, depression and anxiety are real.

I KNOW THE LORD IS ALWAYS WITH ME!

“GOD doesn’t waste our wilderness”

The Godly Chic Diaries

The lord is my shepherd; I have what I need. He lets me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He renews my life; he leads me along the right paths for His name’s sake. Even when I go through the darkest valley, I fear no danger, for you are with me; your rod and your staff — they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord as I live.” — Psalms 23:1-6

In exodus 13, God brings his people out of slavery in Egypt, and begins to lead them on a journey to the promised land through the wilderness. But even though there was a direct route that would have taken them on the highway by the sea, God decided to take his people, the long way through…

Relationship Scale of Preference

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

The vertical relationship is at the peak of the Triangle. You want to maintain a healthy relationship with your Creator because that’s is the source of your life, power and wellbeing. Once this is intact, every other relationships becomes a flow). A man who does not understand the love of Jesus Christ for His Church will not be able to love his wife unconditionally as expected. Also, the woman who does not understand the submission of the Church to Jesus Christ, will find it difficult to submit to her husband. The same applies to relate with children, family and friends.

RELATIONSHIP WITH SPOUSE

(Relationship with your spouse is the second most important, most precious and valuable one because your spouse is an inseparable part of you; your partner in this journey of life and the one who watches your blindspots). As long as I am concerned, It is better to remain single than to marry someone you can’t trust or rely on. This is very important.

A healthy marriage breeds healthy community

RELATIONSHIP WITH CHILDREN

Your relationship with your child or children is very important especially for them because it has a trickling down effect on future generations and the society as a whole. Children learn more by imitation, meaning that they get to copy how you relate with your spouse (as a parent, you are your children’s first and strongest role model and ally). A child’s behaviour can be traced directly to the parents and family they come from. As Next Minute Leaders™, your children will replicate what they see in the lives of the parents and close family members, and of course, take it to the next level. This is why it’s very important to train up your child “in the way it should go”- King Solomon

RELATIONSHIP WITH EXTENDED FAMILY

This is a very important and delicate relationship to manage. It’s delicate because this is your family – they knew your challenges, weaknesses and have been there for you from infancy. They played a major role in your upbringing. I’m talking about your parents, siblings, inlaws, and family members. It very important because you have to keep the relationship healthy and respectful even if don’t accept their counsels or disagree with them.

I refer to them as extended family because once you’re married, your nuclear family structure changes to: you, spouse and children

RELATIONSHIP WITH OTHERS

Keep it clean, friendly and resourceful.

Today You Live

Live Today as a Gift – be grateful for every breathe you take, every success you achieve, and every opportunity you have to be a better person (either through losses, challenges, failures or disappointments

Live Today As a Seed – invest in your future and avoid instant gratification & wastage of resources. Create something even if you don’t really understand what it is.

Live Today like the Saviour – pattern your life as those you are the saviour that the community, people or company you find yourself in are waiting for. Add values to the lives of those around you.

Live Today as those Tomorrow is a Wishful Thinking – do and be your very best today. Strive to get the optimal performance or use of your available resources. Imagine today is the only day you have to live and tomorrow is an evaluation of today.

Live Today as a Child – love as if you whole world loves you, as if you have never been hurt and as if you won’t be here forever: bring positive energy along with your warm smiles, strengthen the faith of others, lift up the fallen, help the blind to see the beauty in life, place with everyone and live freely

Live Today for those who don’t have Tomorrow – use your giftings (time, money, resources, networks, etc) to support the less privilege. Volunteer at a charity; give your seat on the bus to a senior, pregnant woman, child or someone with accessibility challenge; speak out against injustice; help raise awareness about something that matters to you but for the benefit of others.

I AM THE BRIDGE

I am here trying to be the bridge

Between the deaf and the lame

But how can the blind explain to the dumb

That we are all one family

If we all think we are better than each other?

.

We all have dark nights and touch lights

We are all born in Fall

Even if some leafs are still green

You only know true light when there’s darkness

Not when the sun is shining

.

So why not leave out the filters

That make darkness look like light

And focus on the light that clears all darkness?

Deaf, dumb, blind or lame

Love is the language that we all understand

Dead To The Fear of Death

What is stronger than death if we will all die?

How strong is death if its part of life?

If we will die someday why should we be afraid of death?

Yet, we will not all die because One died for us all

He paid the prize so we will all become change for Him

We are dead to the fear of death

Death died before we were even born

And we resurrected with the power over death

Immortality is brought back to light

So let us let our lights so shine before men

That they see our fearlessness over death

And glorify the One who paid the prize

For death has no power over the risen

Happy Victory Life

What You See

If all you see is what you can see

Then you need a pair of glasses

Maybe not for your optics

But for your heart

Your eyes are naked

They only see what is physical

Your heart is protected

It can see what’s not visible

So don’t live by what you see

Live by your heart

After all, even the just shall live by faith.

FACE THE SUN

Two close friends sat under the Sun

One got sunburn

The other got vitamin D

Is the Sun partial?

No! She’s fair not human

What makes the difference?

Their relationship with the solar system

Or simply put, their distance from the equator.

Now you see that

The race is not to the switch

Nor battle to the strong

But distance and relationship happen to them all.

Since your relationships matters

What is your relationship with the Son?

Are you building your relationship with the Son

Or you’re busy chasing everything under the Sun?

Because when all said and done,

When you follow the road all runners go

And your purse cannot save your pulse

You will get to face your source

And the only thing that will matter

Will be your relationship with the Son

Give your life to Jesus today

And your faith will guide your fate.

My Lost Treasure

Like a lily, you grew up so quickly

Radiating the glory and splendor embedded within.

And like the grass, you withered away too quickly

That we couldn’t capture the true value of your personality.

.

Leaving an indelible vacuum in the field

A vacuum that only wishes can fill

But wishes are never horses

Else I would have been an ostler.

.

When I think of the visions and people you could have reached

Tears roll down my cheek

Yet like Solomon, when I consider the evil in the world

I congratulate and count you fortunate to have left early.

.

I call you my lost treasure

But since you’re not in ‘lost n found’

You’re better called my ‘Stolen Treasure’

As the freezing hand of death has stolen you from us.

.

Your desire to become a world trader was cut short by this aggressive monopolist

Your sun set before the dew of the dawn

And your midday dark as dusk felt like 9:11

Rest well beloved, I will see you at home when I finish the good fight!
