Show Up Everyday The Making Of A Champion

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achi[...]

On Being Silent Keeping Quiet

As part of growth, you need to know when to talk and when to keep mute. Unlike introverts, extroverts need to master the art of overlooking issues, holding themselves from retorting and simply keeping quiet.   You don’t always have to share your opinion on a topic or voice out your thoughts. I am not implying that you should fail to stand up for what you believe and be a pushover. All I am saying is that sometimes silence is golden. You Don’t Know It All Accept that you have knowledge gaps. Even if you have knowledge on the topic in question you[...]

Being Friends With God

Last year, I had the opportunity to work towards building a friendship I am totally grateful for now. Although at the time we spent most of our weekends together because we had the same weekend commitments, I knew I wanted to take it a step further.

Friendship with God just like that of man, requires time, effort and energy. You can choose to get as close as you want to by the amount of work you put into i[...]

Read Your Bible Knowing The Person Of Christ

The only day I had no school was on Saturdays. I had to do regular compulsory basic education on weekdays and attend Sunday School on Sunday mornings without fail.   During my Sunday school days, teachers shared stories from the Bible and either admonished or refrained us from acting like the characters we studied based on their nature. The best part was after classes. We ate crackers and drank juice. I always looked forward to that until I was old enough to understand it was a bait to keep us coming.   But I remember I doubted a lot of the things my teacher[...]

Walking In The Supernatural

 Walking with God gives us access to the supernatural. Experiencing the supernatural is God showing up in our daily routines as we follow His prompts. It is God giving us several magic moments throughout the day. The manifestation of the supernatural is not always frightening. Therefore, if we only look forward to the frightening occurrences we might miss a huge part of the supernatural. We all love to hear stories like Jesus turning water into wine at the wedding in Cana and the lions' mouths being shut as in the case of Daniel in the lions’ den. But living a[...]

On Spiritual Growth Becoming More Like Christ

He must increase, but I must decrease. - John 3:30   The goal of every Christian is to become like Christ. This mission is a lifelong journey. The point of attainment isn’t here on earth. Nevertheless, we need to daily tweak little parts of our lives with His help, to look more like Him.   Spiritual growth is keeping in step with God, bearing more fruits of His Spirit and yielding less and less to the desires of our nature. The nature of man is sinful. It has selfish desires and wants, mainly, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and[...]
