A soft and gentle and thoughtful answer turns away wrath, But harsh and painful and careless words stir up anger. The tongue of the wise speaks knowledge that is pleasing and acceptable, But the [babbling] mouth of fools spouts folly. The eyes of the Lord are in every place, Watching the evil and the good [in all their endeavors].
WORK YOUR SCHEDULE LIKE SOMEONE’S LIFE DEPENDS ON IT
I used to be an award winning procrastinator. Like I could literary sit back and do nothing while I allowed the important task to sleep till the next day.
And oh, the next day came as always and I still didn’t find the will power to do those tasks, until when the need of such tasks didn’t matter anymore, then I’ll beat myself into self pity and think of how I’m gonna turn out better next time.
And yes the next time did come, not once, not twice; and oh well we know how these vicious circles go…
Be confident in your purpose, not coveting another man’s purpose.
While having the God and Me moment in the early hours of today, this message dropped.
I understood it immediately, because I’ll say lately I’ve been wanting some kind of success maybe because the process has been completed and the product looks polished compared to mine which is just starting and of course a raw material just starting production looks all messy and unrefined!
02. 06. 2018. || A Soul’s Yearning!
I really love and admire the gift of God upon‘s life. I found this song about the love of God sang by her and it’s lyrics spoke deep into my soul.
On this episode of Dealing With Pain, I’ll really love everyone going through a painful situation right now to soak up on this song, to allow this song minister to us and speak life into our spirits!
You are coming out stronger and better! That pain would lead to your victory.
I’m reaching out in love, God loves you so much!
I woke up on the 31st of May, 2018 and after a while, I cried deeply.
There’s a lot that’s to be done and it seemed as though I have not even started. I make mistakes, sometimes one that I shouldn’t do, and I fall back to that realm of thinking I’m the worst person on earth, sometimes I get so stubborn on my own ways that I forget how to be flexible in reaching out to others, which limits my goals!
My business isn’t going the way I had expected, my plans doesn’t seem like it’s going to fall into place, so I’m here surfing the internet for things that can fade away, that I know are lustful for this certain phase, I know deep down that I deserve the best but I selfishly put so much pressure on myself to desire these things so I fall into the realm of confusion and anxiety!
I used to get caught in that trap a lot. Then one day when I was right in the middle of a bout with depression, the Lord spoke up inside me and said:
Kenneth, your problem is you’re forming your thoughts off the past instead of the future. Don’t do that! Unbelief looks at the past and says, “See, it can’t be done.” But faith looks at the future and says, “It can be done, and according to the promises of God, it is done!” Then putting past failures behind it forever, faith steps out and acts like the victory’s already been won.
If depression has driven you into a spiritual nosedive, break out of it by getting your eyes off the past and onto your future―a future that’s been guaranteed by Christ Jesus through the great and precious promises in His Word.

Has your phone ever betrayed you! Like it’ll just wake up one morning and do a black out, like not come on, start doing funny things like as though it’s telling you “I need a vacae please”
Well, that’s my story.
My phone went MIA sometimes back for a week, and I almost kinda went MIA too. You know how you literally have everything on your phone, like even your jotter is on your phone. So you’re just stuck, you can’t do anything “meaningful”.
It got me thinking…..
Does this happen to you?
Your whole life feels dependent on something, someone for survival, the boyfriend/girlfriend, the job, the money even the challenges (oh yes!) you’re so used to the challenges that it has become part of your daily bread like if there’s no challenge or trial it feels as though you’re missing something! Like your life just goes on a pause, a stand still!

“Be still, and know I am God!” Psalm 46:10 NLT
Umu Chineke (God’s children) it’s time for morning devotion.
The familiar voice that wakes us up every morning, whispered as I was left in a sleepy state to decide whether to obey or not.
I turned the other cheek…..
Apr 13, 2018 || A Yearning.
She glowed even in the rain. The sound of her voice lightened up the building. How can someone in the midst of this current economic situation and life’s storms be so happy! No not happy, joyful. Maybe she’s pretending, that’s how they are. They come up to sing and give us a charade, meanwhile they’re worse off!
I later learned that she doesn’t have children? How can this be?!

You may think, “Nobody knows what I’m going through, nobody feels the pain I’m experiencing.”
But God knows!
He knows your feelings and frustrations. He’s seen the crisis in your soul. There’s no hurt that goes unnoticed by God. Psalm 56:6 says, “You know how troubled I am; you have kept a record of my tears.” (Good News)
Often when we’re hurting, we feel very isolated and lonely. Maybe there’s been a death in the family, a divorce, maybe we’ve gotten fired, and we start to think, “Nobody understands the way I feel; nobody can tell the way I feel; nobody feels the pain.”
But God knows, and “The LORD is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him.” (Psalms 103:13 NLT)
God not only sees, He cares!
He knows the causes, the reasons, the things that brought you to this point. He understands because he made you, and he sees the hurt in your heart like nobody else can.
Because God knows our frustrations and despair, we can give those feelings to God: “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about what happens to you.” (1 Peter 5:7 NLT) Cast them all permanently on God, once and for all, and then, don’t take them back – Rick Warren
