Days Of Two Incomes, More Divorce

Isn't it amazing that George Carlin - comedian of the 70's and 80's - could write something so very eloquent...and so very appropriate.

 A Message by George Carlin:

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways , but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly,

If You Think You Are Beautiful, Wait.

I  read this inspiring post on WhatsApp and couldn't wait to share with wives connection family.  Read it below :
"In our church, people rarely introduce me. I just carry my Bible and walk to the altar. What is the introduction for? I would not even allow them to carry my Bible. If they carry my Bible, will they carry my mouth? Will they carry my message?

I remember going to a church to preach sometime ago. And someone stood on the altar to speak. He wanted to introduce the host pastor who would, in turn, introduce me. He said, 'I want to tell you about someone; someone that has changed my life...' As he began to say more things, I thought he was talking about God. Frankly speaking, the way he spoke about the man, I thought it was God He was talking about. But when he finished, he said, "Can we receive my papa, my daddy in the Lord...' I sank in my chair. I said in my heart, 'People are talking about you like this and you accept it?'

That was what Herod did and God sent an angel to slap him. He was consumed by warms on the spot (Acts 12:23). I sank in my chair. Nevertheless, the host pastor got the microphone and obviously, it was normal. By the time he finally invited me to come and preach, frankly speaking, the anointing had died. There was no move, no flow, nothing. They had killed the atmosphere before inviting me into that mess.

I went to that altar with weakness and trembling. I had to

Saturday Medidation: You Are The Immigrant, Sniff Around First

Our inspirational thought today is for everyone. Those of us who started new projects, trying our hands on some new things, testing the waters in some new ventures or, you who just  ventured into a new business, are in a new environment; Blessed with new opportunities:
If a new world just opened up for you, always remember that you are the immigrant no matter how well you appear to fit in. And, more times than not, immigrants have a hard time migrating into new worlds without conflict. Your degree may prepare you to perform the task. Your experience and creativity might show you how to enhance the property, but, if your instincts don't tell what's around you, you are bound to be bitten.
Most newbies come in making too much noise to notice the eyes that stare behind the smiles that quickly fade. They enter into conversation when they should be nodding, smiling and listening. In new environments, you must learn to read the body language as well as the new words in the native

Good morning Meditation: Your Strength Is In Your Uniqueness

    
If you lose your sense of who you are,  you have nothing to which you can return. If you don't discover your passion, purpose and power, then you will pursue the roles assigned by other people's scripts. You will lose the success afforded by new opportunities, if you don't know your own priorities and preferences.

Monday Morning Meditation: What's All The Fuss About?

 What's all This Fuss About US Same-Sex Legislation?
"You who abhor idols, do you rob temples?" Romans 2:22, NIV
¶ Last week, the United States of America was in the news again - for the absurdest reason. For the second time in the history of the world, a nation poked God in the face. The first was the infamous Tower of Babel. The Supreme Court ruling is the type the Trbiune God would say, "Let's go down and take a look." Even Russia felt revulsion!
••• I'm not sure America understands or cares about how other parts of the world view the copious outpouring of spiritual pollution streaming from Washington DC. I've watched dozens of interviews originating from China, Middle East and Africa that basically posture thus: "America, why don't you clean up your house first before complaining about my backyard?" The gun violence and racial killings of the past couple of months are equally appalling to us as the terror attacks in Tunisia, Kuwait or

The Supreme Court's Decisions Are Based On The Constitution, God Judges You Based On His Word. T. D. Jakes

Bishop T.D. Jakes, founding pastor of The Potter's House in Dallas, Texas, remarks on the Supreme Court's ruling on same-sex marriage
during a service on Sunday, June 28, 2015.
Jakes informed worshipers at The Potter's
House in Dallas that he had been "bombarded"
by various people wanting to know his

unconstitutional.

Turn Off The Tap, Stop Mopping Floors

A Faucet in Your Soul


"I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming. He has no claim on me." John 14:30ESV

¶ A few years ago, a popular Nigerian pastor was in the big news when he declared that masturbation was not a sin. Usually, when such a matter generates such heated interest, it could only mean that too many people are involved, if you know what I mean.

Is masturbation a sin? I pondered that question for years because I was involved. The answer my heart gave me was not the answer I had wanted. I secretly wished masturbation wasn't a sin! I had fasted, prayed, tried hard not to look at women lustfully. Yet, the more I tried the more my willpower buckled. 

At some point, I didn't care anymore if it was a sin or not. I just wanted to be free from the habit! I

MORNING MEDITATION: Approach 101

"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that gives to all men liberally, and upbraides not; and it shall be given him." ~ James 1:5

¶ When our children were still young, we visited an aunt in the village. While there, our youngest son said he wanted to go. So, Mum set up his potty at the latrine. That was when the 'green leaf' made its way toward him.

When my wife went to clean him, she was horrified at the sight of the green snake beside our little boy! If I were the one, I would freeze on the spot and then try to attack the snake with some grammar and hefty vocab. Not my wife! Her mother instinct instantly subdued her fear. She ran and whipped the boy away from the snake! Women never cease to amaze me!

The little boy was a little surprised at his Mum's Hollywood-like action movie. He said, "Mummy, I thought it was only a leaf!" That's the problem with raising an African child in the city. Just because something is green doesn't make it a leaf!

Water In Your Phone? Get A Bag Of Rice




I am one mom who's very good at hiding her mobile phones from restless crawling walking babies,blaming other mothers for letting kids throw their phones in buckets of water and I called that carelessness but, this time, I don't know what happened and he found it. Before anyone could stand up to grab, it was aleady in a cup of water. I vex eh! The phone continued to work after I opened and cleaned it up. Later in the evening, everything went blank and it won't come on. My Bil overheard me talking about taking it to Emab or GSM village for repairs and he tells me there's no need for repairs, that rice alone can fix it for me. The bag of rice delivered


It's been three months now and the phone is still working perfectly fine and even posting to the blog. I opened it up, brought out the battery and sim cards, dipped the phone in a bag of rice and left it there for two days as advised. I forgot to bring it out on the second day so the following day it came out looking very dusty. I wiped with

MONDAY MORNING MEDITATION: The Malignant Pathology of Nigerian Tribalism (PART 2)


"Anyone who hates a brother or sister is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him." ~ 1 John 3:15 (NIV)

¶ The brutal murder of Emmanuel Sithole, a Mozambican in South Africa, captured by a journalist, is a grim reminder of what hate can do with the human heart. Poor Emmanuel probably expected too much from the human heart - to have casually walked into the streets of burning hate and expected to make it through. Those who found him dead saw three armbands on his wrist that read: "United for Bafana."
The events in South Africa, and the recent pushing overboard at sea of Nigerian and Ghanaian Christians explains Jesus's teaching that he who hates his brother without a cause is guilty of murder - and why no tribalistic person will 'smell' heaven, no matter how religious.
Let's bring it home to the stench of tribalism in Nigeria, and moreso in the Nigerian church.

My Awesomeness Story By Imoleayo

The word 'AWESOME' means; inspiring, admiration or wonder, breathtaking, magnificent, wonderful, amazing, stunning, impressive, extremely good, excellent e.t.c.
Laying in my bed right now and all i can think of is the Awesomeness  of my Creator. How breathtaking are His works, how wonderful are His thoughts, how magnificent He really is.
Earlier today, I decided to watch some videos online. I watched the human procreation process; from fertilization taking  place in the uterus of a woman to delivering a child into this world. Awesome! 

First of all, it is amazing how a child develops with the help of millions of cells! I watched how the external part of the body forms and mehn! the joy in my heart was overwhelming! 
Another amazing fact is that in spite of the fact that a child is born into the world every second NO two are the same! We are hand crafted by the Creator, you've got your own DNA and I've got mine!!  Yipee
The Bible emphasizes this in JEREMIAH chapter 1 verse 5, God says: BEFORE I FORMED YOU IN THE WOMB I KNEW YOU. BEFORE U WERE BORN I SET YOU APART. It warms my heart knowing that before the world knew me, God did.
The Psalmist says of God in PSALM 139 verse 16: ALL THE DAYS ORDAINED FOR ME WERE WRITTEN IN YOUR BOOK BEFORE ONE OF THEM CAME TO PASS
Awesome!

Ebola Cure: Where Are African Scientists, Miracle, Faith Healers?

Thinking about the cure for the much dreaded Ebola disease, I am worried about Liberia, Guinea, Nigeria and all other West African countries. What happens if no cure is found till the end of the year? How many lives would have been lost by December 2014? How many children would have become orphans, women become widows and whole families and villages and even towns wiped out?

Are we going to just sit there and wait for American Scientists to do all the reserach and discoveries and then send these vaccine/medications on a platter of gold. Are Africans doing something apart from the figures we see on TV being released by the Government? Our Scientists, are they spending sleepless nights in the Laboratories doing research and sincerely trying to find a cure or just wearing the lab coat and waiting?

We have so many Faith healers and Miracle workers in Africa, people all over the world travel down to Africa, Nigeria especially, to get healing from different kinds of "orthodox medicine defying ailments"  We watch these things on Television daily, we see live miracles I suppose. We hear and read healing testimonies every sunday in our different places of worship. I am a believer, a follower, a very practical and realistic African woman, a disciple still learning from the masters and also expecting so much more.

If Jesus were physically here today, with what is happening in the world right now, his compassionate heart will make him do something to bring help. He went to the Camp of the lepers then, helped a man who couldn't get himself up when the Pool of Bethesda is stirred. He layed hands on people with infectious diseases and healed them. He ministered to the quarantined and very sick, brought help and healing. Doing all to the glory of the Almighty. If Jesus were still moving around preaching to people, he would have ministered to the physical needs of Ebola victims (HEALING).

The death toll is rising according to The World Health Organisation (WHO) "Ebola vaccine should be ready for public use by 2015" What now happens in Africa in the next 4 months before 2015?
“Since this is an emergency, we can put emergency procedures in place... so that we can have a vaccine available by 2015,” Jean-Marie Okwo Bele, the head of immunisation and vaccines at the WHO, told French radio broadcaster RFI.

I am thinking; is Ebola too strong for Faith Healing? seriously. Are
