When we laugh

When was the last time you really laughed yourself to tears? Laughter helps us to unload the burdens of the soul. Laughter eases pain, kills bitterness, overcomes anger, destroys resentment, prevents hypertension and most blood related cases. Laughter is an outward expression of inward joy and happiness. Laughter is the product of genuine excitement. You cannot laugh and hate at the same time. you cannot laugh and be bitter, you cannot even laugh and be sick. Laughter has healing properties. it eases pains, and releases positive emotions to take charge of your body mechanism.
Laugh at your silly mistakes which we all have. Laugh at the funny things you did childhood. Laugh at the jokes you 've heard or read about. Laugh when someone or something is funny. Laugh in a funny way. Laugh with your friends, it will draw them closer to you. Laughter throws down the iron wall that stands between two strangers. Laughter is contagious, it binds people together and boosts energy levels of those involved.
Laughter releases endorphin, which causes your whole body to feel good. Laughter is fun. Laughter boosts your immune system, relaxes your body, and protects your heart.
Guard your heart! Practice humor!! laugh a lot!!! It will change your world, it will change the way you look.
Thats what happens when we laugh.

Remember and be remembered

It's amazing how much attention we pay to memorial services, and how much energy and money we spend to remember the dead, while we forget the living and their deeds of love and kindness. We go through all kinds of troubles to remember the dead, and there is nothing wrong with this, but we rarely remembered to thank them, love them, or even recognize them while they were alive.
I believe that lying deep in the heart of everyman is the need for recognition. The need to be loved, and remembered while they are alive. When we do that, it will inspire people to do more, and live more.
When was the last time you remembered someone who has done you some good in the past, to send them a note, a mail, or even give them a call? can you imagine what difference that will make in the life of that person? Just imagine someone calling you from the blues and reminding you of something nice you did to them a long time ago. You may even have forgotten, but then, they remind you and thank you for it. Imagine the feeling of love and appreciation that you will feel, knowing that they didn't have to do that.
It's great to remember the good deeds of the dead, but even greater to remeember the good deeds of the living.
Remember someone today for their good, and you too will be remembered.
Enjoy the rest of the month of July for it your month of rest!

Discipline

An indisciplined life is not worth living. Discipline is the ability to constrain oneself to adhere to certain rules, in order to achieve a set goal.
Life always makes room for discipline. if you don't discipline yourself, you will be disciplined by nature, situation, or circumstances. Sometimes even by organizations or other people.
You can either pay now and play latter, or play now and pay latter, which ever way, payment is inevitable in life. Those who refuse to discipline themselves when they where young end up being disciplined by circumstances of life when they get older. In life, there are many examinations to pass, if you keep postponing them, you will keep carrying over that particular course.
Indiscipline breaks marriages, foils good plans, destroys friendships and relationships, kills the best of intentions, and can sometimes result in premature death.
A little discipline today, can save your tomorrow.
Examine yourself and see if you are disciplined.
Have a great week.

UNDERSTAND ME

I think one of the greatest needs of man is the need to be understood. many times, we lack the words to express what we truly mean to say. Sometimes, we end up using the wrong choice of words, the wrong facial expressions, or the wrong body language, and we end up being judged wrongly.
Lying deep in every one of us is a strong desire, a need to be understood. we wish that our spouses, children, siblings, friends, and even enemies will understand that our intentions are different from our actions. 'Man judges from outward appearance, but God sees the heart', and because man is the one that we have to deal with daily, our outward appearances (which for the most are inadequate expressions of our inward impressions) form the basis of people's perception of us.
As you read this blog today, i pray that you will be understood more by the people around you, and i pray also that you will seek to understand the people around you before you take any action.
Have a great week ahead.

Be Thankful

Gratitude is the attitude that changes your altitude. A thankful heart opens doors for more blessings. Man in recent times seems to has forgotten the place of thanksgiving in the scheme of live.
We murmur, complain, grind our teeth and squeeze our faces when things don't seem to our way. but as soon as things start working the way we had imagined they would, we forget to be grateful, and just carry on as if nothing happened.
But gratitude can make the difference. Gratitude to all men for the roles they play in our lives. gratitude to God for his love towards us, gratitude to our friends for always being there for us,gratitude to our enemies for always keeping us on guard.
Gratitude will expand your latitude and increase your altitude.
Be thankful. it helps.

Be encouraged

Discouragement is every leader's nightmare. Discouragement is no respecter of age, title, or color. It happens to the rich, the poor, the healthy, and the sick. Discouragement has no regard for kings or nobles. it is not mindful of one's academic qualification, or geographical location.
But mighty as discouragement may seem, it is overpowered by a simple word. a kind word, an uplifting word. it is called encouragement. Say something nice to yourself today and always. say something nice to someone, it is the panacea to discouragement.
When discouragement points you to sunset, remind yourself of sunrise. when it tells you that there is nothing to live for, remind it that you did not send yourself to the earth, and therefore the one who sent you here still has something in store for you. He is not through with you yet.
when you are afraid and discouraged, remind yourself that you were once a little child who couldn't care for itself, and yet God took care of you, He will continue to take care of you now and always, because you belong to him.
Be encouraged.

Seed time

As long as the earth remains, seed time and harvest, summer and winter, day and night will never cease. This is an ancient saying found in the book of genesis. Yet ancient as it may be, it is an eternal principle that whenever there is a sowing, harvest is gauranteed. It doesn't matter what you sow, harvest is sure. Good seeds produce a good harvest, and bad seeds produce bad harvest.
Be careful what you sow, in words, or deeds, for they all will grow sooner or later. Sow kindness and you will receive kindness. Speak kind words to people and you will receive kind words from people. Show love and you will be shown love. Give and it will be given to to you. Call people and they will call you. Visit and you will be visited, be friendly to others and you will never lack friends. Be generous, be nice, It's a seed.
Thing is, it may not necessarily come from the ones you gave to, but it will surely come. Take time to consider what you are doing to someone, or for someone today. Be sure that you will surely reap a harvest.
Let's use the few years that we have on this earth to love, to live, and to leave a legacy. Live is too short to waste it sowing bad seeds. Let's sow good seeds, and even after we are long gone. Generations after us will be glad we did.
Live your best life now.
Love someone today!

New Season

The tree is an interesting object to look at when dealing with seasons. The tree does not move nor change locations with changing seasons. No matter what season comes on it, the tree comes up with a way of coping with it.
During fall, it may lose all it's leaves, it's color, beauty and glory, but that doesn't kill the tree. It still stands there , confident of this one thing; that no matter how harsh the fall and winter may have been, spring is coming. And with spring comes everything it had lost in the last season. Its leaves will become more colorful, it's bark more beautiful, it's trunk more refreshed, and its roots watered by the rains.
Talking about you right now, I don't know what things you may have lost in the weeks, months, and years gone by, I want you to know that spring is coming. A new season that will be for you a season of recovery, of color, and restoration. Like the tree, don't give up! Be bold, be confident. Nothing can stop your new season, just as nothing can stop day or night.
This is your season of total recovery.
Enjoy your week.

Be Wise

"Wisdom is better than weapons of war", is one of the sayings of King Solomon.
Wisdom keeps you from making poor choices. A man can hardly rise above the level of his wisdom. wisdom is the proper application of knowledge. Wisdom has nothing to do with age. sometimes, age comes alone.
The world is replete with all kinds of knowledge, but only the proper application of knowledge produces fantastic results.
wisdom also gives you caution, and turns one away from evil. It keeps you from being careless and overconfident. It keeps you humble and friendly. It gives you wealth, health and teaches you to sometime laugh at yourself.
In all your getting, get wisdom. it is the principal thing.

Shine

When darkness surrounds you, and you can't seem to find your way around, do not struggle, just shine. when the storms of life are beating so hard against you that you feel like giving up, do not despair, just shine. You are the light of the world. the light shines and darkness cannot conquer it. If someone who knew you as the light of the world was watching you and they see you groping in darkness, they will shout out to you "shine". Just shine! You can make it happen. if we all can just shine, darkness will be far from us.
Shine!!!!

When You're in Need

Many times in life, we look to all kinds of places for our supplies, some times we look to men, at other times, we look to organizations for supplies, and despite all these, we never seem to have enough.
But have you noticed that the birds of the air never witness economic recession? neither do the ants nor the flowers. Yet they neither have people nor organizations to look up to for supplies. Guess who their supplier is? God of course. and this is because they are involved in the chain of giving and receiving as the Philippians were in Philippians4:16.
It was based on their being part of giving and receiving that Paul the Apostle blessed them with this blessing," My God will richly fill your every need in a glorious way through Christ Jesus".
This blessing is yours today as you start giving.
Don't stop working, but expect much more than your salary, don't stop investing, but expect much more than your dividends, don't stop serving, but expect much more than your rewards, and don't stop giving, it is the secret to receiving.
Look to Jesus, the Author and finisher of your faith. Look to God who is your Shepherd, and you will never want.

My God will richly fill your every need in a glorious way through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 (GW)

Only God's Opinion Counts

Do not allow people's opinion of you to form your reality. Public opinion can be temporal and deceptive. People judge you based on their moods, their feelings, and their perception of you. But God judges you based on what he has deposited inside of you.
They looked at Paul and treated him kindly when he came to the island of Patmos, but as soon as a beast clung to his wrist, they said he was a demon, then he shook the beast into the fire without being harmed, and the same people said he was a god.
Look at this; Same paul, same people, three opinions.
what have people said about you. have they called you names that you know you don't deserve? Relax. its just public opinion. it will change.
God's opinion of you is that; you are the apple of his eyes, you are the light of the world, you are the salt of the earth, you are a city that is set upon a hill that cannot be hid. you are his righteousness in Christ Jesus. you are the head and not the tail, you are blessed and not cursed, you are above only. Even when you are weak, he says, "let the weak say i am strong".
Sometimes, you may even begin to accept who people say you are. but God's opinion of you is your reality.
Only believe!

The people were waiting for him to swell up or suddenly drop dead. But after they had waited a long time and saw nothing unusual happen to him, they changed their minds and said he was a god. Acts 28:6 (GW)

God is Your Helper

So we can confidently say, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can mortals do to me?" Hebrews 13:6 (GW)

People were created to help and be helped at all times. thats the reason God from the beginning got Adam a helper. No one person has monopoly of talents, giftings, and knowledge. This is just so we would have to connect with someone else to get help.
Now God himself has said he will not abandon you. Even when those who should help you don't seem to show up. God reminds you that He is your helper.
He will help you fulfill your destiny, He will help you reach your goal, he will help you be who you were created to be.
When man helps you, you could still be hindered in some areas. But when the Lord is the one helping you, there is nothing anyone can do against you that will succeed.
God is ready to help you now.
All you need to do is to call on him.
Call on him today!
Give him a chance to help you out.
He is your helper!

Certainly, goodness and mercy will stay close to me all the days of my life, and I will remain in the LORD'S house for days without end. Psalms 23:6 (GW)

Life is full of fears. one of these fear, is the fear of being alone. When you are in your room, or in your car, on the beach, in the office, or just anywhere. There are times when you just have this deep feeling of insecurity and aloneness.
You feel like there is nobody with you, and even when there seem to be people everywhere around you. You feel like they don't understand you or what you are going through.
This feeling of aloneness have driven many to untimely disaster as they tend to cling unto just anything that makes them feel secured and comforted.

I came to announce to you today that you are not alone. God has commissioned goodness and mercy to attend to you and stay close to you in all cases, days without end.
Be encouraged. you are not alone!

Love covers

"Hate starts quarrels, but love covers every wrong". Proverbs 10;12 (GW)Meditate

He who claims to love and yet holds unto offenses has never known love. Love always excuses wrong, it covers a multitude of sin, it is patient, kind, slow to anger, and overlooks offenses.
Love easily forgives, and seeks to restore offenders. Love is Godly. God is Love.
Lets start loving, its the only way to real peace with God and man.

Trust in the Lord

Entrust your ways to the LORD. Trust him, and he will act on your behalf. Psalms 37:5
Trust is earned rather than wished for.
When we seek to buy certain car brands, or electronic gadgets, Most often than none, it's because these brands have earned a name for themselves. So we trust that they will be durable, and we buy them and recommend them to our friends and loved ones. We brag about about these brands until they become status symbols.
But see how lazy we seem in entrusting our lives to God. Even though he has proven himself over and over again, men still drag their feet when it comes to trusting God.
Some wait until they are in trouble before they call on him, others call Him just to satisfy their religious appetite. yet only a few really trust Him.
Now its up to you. Do you trust God?
If you do, He will act on your behalf.
Trust in the Lord.
Enjoy your day!

Who is Your Supplier?

My God will richly fill your every need in a glorious way through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 (GW)

"Whoever walks with wise people will be wise, but whoever associates with fools will suffer". Proverbs 13;20 (GW).
The power of association and proper partnership can not be over emphasized. Who you associate or partner with can either make you or mar you.
As you walk through the month of April, i need you to make wise choices in choosing who your friends, partners, associates, spouses, or fellowship, will be.
it will make a whole lot of difference in your life.

"You must serve the LORD your God, and he will bless your food and water. I will take away all sickness from among you". Exodus 23:25 (God's word translation)

The best way to stay healthy, and have God's blessings on your life is to serve God. to worship Him. to do His bidding, and to seek to please Him.
Serve Him with your strength, serve Him with your money, serve Him with your time, serve him with your live. for this is why you were raised. you were raised to serve God, and in serving him, you will be rewarded with blessings, and good health. sickness will be far from you and your family,
and you will know the kind of peace that only God can give.
