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.

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!

You Bastard!

We are all here claiming and professing to be from the royal family because we know the King’s name or by adoption through the son’s blood.

Hopefully when the son comes shining like the stars he won’t call us bastard because we missed the way by following our ways.

May we not live like our ancestors who were exiled from the kingdom for their ill-doings. But rather be like our forefathers who were enshrined into the kingdom despite their wrongdoings. Amen!

COMPETE WITH YOUR FUTURE

When you know your unique worth and value you will have no fear of competition because nobody can actually compete with you. You are uniquely crafted and gifted in a way that it is absolutely impossible to replicate. Your timeline and sequence of events are completely personalized and so there is no need trying to compete with anyone else. Your priority is to identify your mission/purpose in life and fight to accomplish it.

If you want want to compete, go compete with your ancestors. If you win, you are a local champion. Meaning that you are legitimately a failure. Don’t even think of competing with your peers, co-workers or friends because you DON’T have any close substitute or equal. Even your identical twin has a completely different mission and timeline on earth.

People say “strive today to be better than your yesterday”. I say “if you are just better today than your yesterday, then you’re a failure because you are still living in your past glories”. Like, thank GOD for those stuffs and more on. I know the idea is never to have a better yesterday but my point is never to live in yesterday.

If you want true competition, dream of the person you want to be in 5, 10 years and start competing against them with the resources you have now.

This is what I call competition because naturally, you will have access to more and better information, resources, network and skills 5-10years from now than what you currently have. And so it will be a real challenge to compete with them. And don’t just say it today and abandon it a few weeks after like your new year resolution.

So what do you want to become or where do you want to be in 5-10years time?
Take out time away from the disturbance and enjoyment of the moment to think, plan and reflect on your life and destiny. Travel out of your current community or locality if need be. You need a quiet time to communicate with GOD, yourself and your future. Maybe take a fast from food or even social fasting. Take a walk in the park. Collect your church key/access and go there during non-service hours and days. Visit a place where you have access to more natural environment or just wake up in the night, observe the serenity of environment and the ‘interaction’ in the firmament. Read some books or autobiographies about some of the people and or public figures that you inspire you.

Take your writing (or drawing or recording) materials along. Write down your thoughts, feelings, observations, questions and revelations.
Then asked yourself what skills, attitude, behavioral modification or resources you think are necessary to actualize this dream?

Then, take out time to evaluate your writings, recordings or drawings. Scale it and challenge yourself to start making the adjustment to pattern your life after your new vision. Here, remember to speak of practical and realistic facts using the SMART Goal Principle – Be Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time-bound.

A daily, weekly, monthly and ultimately, yearly target
Then begin the actual competition (against your future self) as if it’s a sport for a prize. Set up a reward system for yourself to keep you motivated.

The most fascinating thing about this write- up is that I don’t have it all figured out yet and so I am speaking to myself too.

MY ORDER IS ON THE WAY

I weep all night, my room is Niagara Fall

Yet no one cares to pay a visit even for a free view

The things I used to love now torment my soul

Even in Fall my tears aint dried up.

.

I was born in fall and my leafs dried up

But where there is fall, snow falls even much more

Turn a snowman, they say, so you can survive the weather

The little breeze in my heart keep me living.

.

Ice queen tried to slow me like flurry

I had to skip her like dishes

A. Gabriel, my courier is on the way

Don’t salivate brother, my order is not to be shared.

.

T’Chala waiting for Cinderella to grow up

But what can unite these two parallel worlds?

Mum said love’s arsenal transcends all barriers

Now I want to speak with bae but it’s all scripted.

Unending Serenade ❣️

For those of us who are trying to catch up on #Valentine2019, this is my special #ValentinesGift for you to #spiceup your #relationship.

❣️Unending Serenade ❣️

Your dulcet voice is a charming morning bird

An astral auto-tune of an angelic clarinet virtuoso

My only ineluctable desire for a day off

I am enamored with the glowing sounds of your heartbeat

My unfeigned serenade of you is sempiternal

‘Till life leave us alone’ is my commitment.
