Fact about life.....Its real.

Life is fragile,
Life is short.
Do not take Life
for granted.
Live a balance
lifestyle and
enjoy Life!
A long time ago,
there was an Emperor who told
his horseman that if he could ride on his horse and cover as much land area as
he likes,then the
Emperor would
give him the area
of land he has
horseman quickly
jumped on to his
horse and rode as
fast as possible to
cover as much land area as he could.He kept on riding and riding,
whipping the horse to go as fast as possible. When he was hungry and
tired,he did not
stop because he
wanted to cover
as much area as
possible.It came to the point when he had covered a
substantial area
and he was
exhausted and
was dying. Then
he asked himself,
“Why did I push
myself so hard to
cover so much land area? Now I am dying and I only need a very small area to burry
The above story is
similar with the
journey of lour
Life.We push very
hard everyday to
make more money,to gain power and
recognition. We
neglect our health,
time with our
family just to
appreciate the
beauty and the
hobbies we love to do.One day when we look back,we will realize that we
don’t really need
that much,but
then we cannot
turn back time for
what we have
missed.Life is not
about making
power or recognition.Life is
definitely not
about work! Work
is only necessary
to kept us living so as to enjoy the
beauty and
pleasure of life.
Life is a balance of
Work and Play,family and
Personal time.You
have to decide
how you want to
balance your life.
Define your
priorities! Realize
what you are able
to compromise but
always let some of your decisions be based on your
instincts.Happiness is the meaning and the
purpose of Life,the whole aim of human existence.So,take it easy,do what you want to do and appreciate
So let me end by telling you this,probably you haven't heard it your
become words.Watch your
become actions.Watch your actions;they
become habits.Watch your
become characters.
Watch your
becomes your
destiny......stay blessed.

Don't sell ur dream.

Jehdi and Hassan were two
merchants who were very
close friends. Jehdi was a
cheerful person, almost
frivolous, whereas Hassan
was very serious, perhaps
too cautious and careful. But
an unbreakable bond of
friendship tied them together
and this made their journey
for business happy, for they
never had any dispute.
One time they started
together toward the city of
They arrived at the
outskirts of a forest where
the big trees, moist rocks
and cool shade invited them
to take a well-deserved
rest. Within a minute Jehdi
fell asleep.
Hassan looked at his friend
with a sigh and told himself,
"He sleeps peacefully in
nature, as if he were in his
own house. I am afraid of
someone robbing me. Even
though the thief might get
very little, I am too
apprehensive and I prefer to
be cautious. After all, one
never knows what might
Hassan was ruminating over
his anxiety when suddenly
he saw a wasp coming out of
Jehdi's left nostril. Its
enigmatic dance surprised
him. It flew toward a single
pine tree standing on a rock,
circled the tree 3 times, and
then returned to the sleeping
Jehdi and disappeared into
his right nostril.
Just at that moment Jehdi
woke up, sat up laughing and
said, "Hassan, you will never
believe me. I just had a
marvelous dream. Just
imagine that there is big pine
tree standing on a high rock,
exactly like the one you see
there. A wasp droned around
the trunk and its wings
buzzed as if to say, "You
must dig in this place, you
must dig in this place!" I
started digging and I found a
big pot full of gold coins. I
have never in my life seen
so much money...!"
"Yes, truly it is a strange
dream," replied Hassan. "If I
were in your place, I would
have dug around the pine
tree there."
"My poor friend, how na?ve
you are. I would never take
a dream seriously. It is so
hot here, to dig would be
torture! Please, let us
continue our journey.."
But Hassan insisted, "Jehdi,
a dream like this surely has
a meaning. If you do not want
to dig, I will try instead. Do
you know what I propose to
you? Sell your dream to me."
Jehdi began laughing loudly.
"This is a good piece of
business for me! How much
will you pay?"
"You have said that there is
a big pile of gold coins. I am
your friend and I do not want
to wrong you. You tell me
how much you estimate to be
the price of your dream."
After a brief discussion, they
agreed to the sum of 300
"Never have I made such a
business deal. So much
money for a simple dream of
no value. How gullible you
are, Hassan!"
The 2 friends then went
under the pine tree which the
wasp had shown in the
dream. Jehdi was amused to
see Hassan perspiring
profusely and breaking his
back with the shovel. He
continued on until the shovel
made a dull sound as if it had
struck something hard.
What a surprise for the 2
merchants when they
uncovered an earthen pot
full of gold coins! Before
breaking it, Hassan noted an
inscription near the handle:
"the first of seven."
"The first of 7. That means
there should be 6 more pots
buried," Jehdi understood,
starting to regret the deal he
had concluded too quickly.
This time both of them dug
with energy and, sure
enough, they found the 6
pots, one after another,
each one filled to the brim
with gold coins.
Hassan built a huge inn in
the city and named it The
Bulging Pot. He lived as a
rich and satisfied man until
his death.
Jehdi often came to visit him
and greeted his friend with
the words, "Well, Hassan,
how are you? I have come to
see what has happened to
my dream." And the 2
comrades patted each other
on the back laughing. But
every time Jehdi returned
home sadder, for he knew
that he could never buy back
his dream.

Boy and his one-eyed mom. (a heart touching story)

A story of a little boy......
My mom only had one eye.I hated her,she was such an embarrassment.My mom ran a small shop at a flea market.She collected little weeds and such to sell anything for the money we needed,she was
such an embarrassment.There was this one day during elementary school.I remember that it was field day,and my mom
came.I was so
could she do this to me?
I threw her a hateful look and ran out.The next day at school..."Your mom only has one eye?!" and they
taunted me.
I wished that my mom would just disappear
from this world so I said to my mom, "Mom,why don't you have the
other eye?! You're only going to make me a
laughingstock. Why don't you just die?" My
mom did not respond. I
guess I felt a little bad,but at the same time,it
felt good to think that I had said what I'd wanted to say all this
Maybe it was because my mom hadn't punished me,but I didn't think that I had
hurt her feelings very badly.
That night...I woke up,and went to the kitchen
to get a glass of water.My mom was crying
there,so quietly,as if she was afraid that she might wake me.I took
a look at her,and then turned away. Because of the thing I had said
to her earlier, there was something pinching at
me in the corner of my heart.Even so,I hated my mother who was crying out of her one
eye.So I told myself that I would grow up
and become successful,because I hated my
one-eyed mom and our desperate poverty.
Then I studied really hard.I left my mother and came to Seoul and
studied,and got
accepted in the Seoul University with all the
confidence I had. Then,I got married.I bought a
house of my own,I had kids too.Now I'm living happily as a successful man.I like it
here because it's a place that doesn't remind me
of my mom.
This happiness was getting bigger and
bigger,when someone
unexpected came to see me "What?! Who's this?!"... It was my
mother...Still with her one eye.It felt as if the whole sky was falling
apart on me.My little girl ran away, scared of my mom's eye.And I asked her, "Who
are you? I don't know you!!!" as if I tried to
make that real.I
screamed at her "How dare you come to my
house and scare my daughter! Get out of here
now!" And to this,my
mother quietly
answered, "oh, I'm so sorry.I may have gotten the wrong address," and she
disappeared.Thank goodness... she doesn't
recognize me.I was quite relieved.I told
myself that I wasn't going to care,or think
about this for the rest of my life.
Then a wave of relief came upon me,one day,a letter regarding a
school reunion came to my house. I lied to my wife saying that I was
going on a business trip.After the reunion,I
went down to the old shack,that I used to call a house...just out of
curiosity there,I found my mother fallen on the
cold ground. But I did not shed a single tear.
She had a piece of paper in her was a
letter to me.My Son,I think my life has been
long enough now. And,I won't visit Seoul anymore... but would it
be too much to ask if I wanted you to come
visit me once in a while?.I miss you so much,And I was so glad when
I heard you were
coming for the reunion.But I decided not to go
to the school,For you...
I'm sorry that I only have one eye,and I was an embarrassment
for you.
You see,when you were very little,you got
into an accident, and lost your eye. As a mother,I couldn't stand
watching you having to
grow up with only one eye,so I gave you mine.I was so proud of my son that was seeing a whole new
world for me,in my
place,with that eye.I was never upset at you
for anything you did.
The couple times that you were angry with
me.I thought to
myself,'it's because he
loves me.' I miss the times when you were still young around me.
I miss you so much.I
love you.You mean the
world to me.....My world shattered! Then I cried for the person who
lived for me,my Mother........

Ayobamz in year 2011.

Good day everyone,I'm Ijeoma Nwabudike,the host of this interview and right here with me is the owner of this great blog,Okediji Ayobami.He's going to be giving us details on how year 2011 has been for him.

Hijay:So can we meet you?.

Ayobami:Yes thank you ijeoma,i'm Ayobami Okediji by name,but most of my friends prefer calling me Ayobamz.

Hijay:Please,can you introduce yourself so the readers can understand you better?

Ayobami:Alright,i'm Okediji Ayobami as i've earlier said,i'm dark in complexion,a very interesting guy,no dull moments with me,trust me.I'm a christian and hail from Osun state,Nigeria.

Hijay:Ok,that's better,so tell us how you started this year.

Ayobami:wow wow,year 2011 started on a good note especially academically.I was admitted into OAU for predegree and I was happy that I wasn't going to stay at home for a year,entertained with boredom and all that.I will say this year started well and glory be to God,its already rolling out.

Hijay:Hmm,thank God,we are moving forward,so can you share some of your PD experiences with us?

Ayobami:Hahaha,that's a whole lot of story but I will try my best to give the summary of the summary.Hmmm,let me first start by saying,pd was fun,I mean real fun.The first day I arrived at the campus,I wasn't really comfortable,reason being that,it was the first time of leaving my parents to go that far.I was in Adeniji hostel where I met guyz from different background,I mean the good,bad and the ugly,the hostel was hell at first but I just got used to it since I knew that I was going to be with them for nine solid months.Another aspect I didn't really love was the cooking thing.I didn't really like cooking then,but I also had to get used to the system and I too started cooking different kind of 'concortions',i'm sure you know these guyz concortion now,so I don't need to go much into that.Yes!,one other experience I had was waking up early inorder to beat 8 o'clock lectures.I loved sleep then,that I must confess,and I didn't know that it was going to be like that until I got to campus.But one funny thing was that,on the first day of lectures,I woke up very early,you know it was my first time of seeing a lecturer,that one continued for like a week.But later,if it wasn't 9 o'clock,ha,I won't get up from my bed,let alone going for lectures.I really stabbed classes.But today i'm giving glory to God,i'm done with pd with smiles all over my face.

Hijay:hmm,I enjoyed it,you really had fun in that your pd,ehn ehn,if i could recollect,you sed,it was your first time of leaving your parents to go that far,so where do you reside?

Ayobami:I stay at kubwa Abuja,Nigeria.

Hijay:Wow!Abuja,anyway its your choice,so why did you choose OAU?

Ayobami:Well,OAU is a good school,i've heard it and even experienced it,that was where my dad attended,so he knows people there...I'll stop there,that's a story for another day.

Hijay:Ok o,apart from school stuffs,what other kind of experiences did you have this year.

Ayobami:yes,I think I've stepped up from being flogged to being corrected orally,won't say much about that..hahahaha,and another is that I got to know how to socialize with people most especially know,I had a lot of them around,but i'll say it was fun,believe me,yes.

Hijay:Now lets move to bad experiences.

Ayobami:Ehem,most of my bad experiences were in pd of which i would just say one.My pd result for the first and second contacts were not really good,so my dad wasn't happy with me atall,he said that I shouldn't waste his #135,000,i felt bad myself.Well,apart from this,others were funny experiences,we had to jump the fence,crawl in the bush at night,wow,I promise to do justice to that another time.

Hijay:You said,your school fees was #135,000.

Ayobami:Yes,couldn't believe it initially.

Hijay:wow,dats outrageous!

Ayobami:Yes,it is,it's increasing by the year,I even heard this year's set are paying #152,500,so you see,but I really hope OAU gets something to do about that.

Hijay:OK,I really hope so,yes,we are gradually ending,year 2011 is wrapping up,so what are your plans for the new year.

Ayobami:My plans,I do hope I'm given my course (mechanical engineering).I plan to study very hard to make better grades,and I also want to learn at least one instrument perfectly and yes,i also want to be engaged in more kingdom services,I mean win more souls,that's the ultimate now.I want to be God's best ally and I know that's well attainable.

Hijay:You said you want to learn one instrument,so which preferably?

Ayobami:The guitar,I love guitars so much and I want to be perfect in it.

Hijay:wow,that's good and I wish you all the best.

Ayobami:Thank you.

Hijay:So what will you say to your friends out there?

Ayobami:Love you all,hope you all enjoyed year 2011,may the God that saw you through hitherto,preserve you to year 2012.A big thank you to all Adenijites and love and peace family,you guyz are the bomb.

Satan's scheme.

Satan called a worldwide
convention. In his opening
address to his evil angels,
he said, "We can't keep the
Christians from going to
church. We can't keep them
from reading their Bibles and
knowing the truth. We can't
even keep them from forming
an intimate, abiding
relationship experience in
Christ. Once they gain that
connection with Jesus, our
power over them is broken.
So let them go to their
churches; let them have their
conservative lifestyles, but
steal their time, so they can't
gain that relationship with
Jesus Christ.
This is what I want you to
do, angels. Distract them
from gaining hold of their
Savior and maintaining that
vital connection throughout
their day!"
"How shall we do this?"
shouted his angels.
"Keep them busy in the
nonessentials of life and
invent innumerable schemes
to occupy their minds," he
answered. Tempt them to
spend, spend, spend, and
borrow, borrow, borrow.
Persuade the wives to go to
work for long hours and the
husbands to work 6-7 days
each week, 10-12 hours a
day, so they can afford their
empty lifestyles. Keep them
from spending time with their
children. As their family
fragments, soon, their home
will offer no escape from the
pressures of work!"
Over-stimulate their minds
so that they cannot hear that
still, small voice. Entice them
to play the radio or cassette
player whenever they drive.
To keep the TV, VCR, CD's
and their PC's going
constantly in their home and
see to it that every store
and restaurant in the world
plays non-biblical music
constantly. This will jam their
minds and break that union
with Christ."
"Fill the coffee tables with
magazines and newspapers.
Pound their minds with the
news 24 hours a day. Invade
their driving moments with
Flood their mailboxes with
junk mail, mail order
catalogs, sweepstakes, and
every kind of newsletter and
promotional offering free
products, services and false
Keep skinny, beautiful
models on the magazines so
the husbands will believe
that external beauty is
what's important, and they'll
become dissatisfied with their
wives. That will fragment
those families quickly!"
"Even in their recreation, let
them be excessive. Have
them return from their
recreation exhausted,
disquieted and unprepared
for the coming week.
Don't let them go out in
nature to reflect on God's
wonders. Send them to
amusement parks, sporting
events, concerts and movies
instead. Keep them busy,
busy, busy!
And when they meet for
spiritual fellowship, involve
them in gossip and small talk
so that they leave with
troubled consciences and
unsettled emotions." Go
ahead, let them be involved
in soul winning; but crowd
their lives with so many good
causes they have no time to
seek power from Jesus.
Soon they will be working in
their own strength,
sacrificing their health and
family for the good of the
cause. It will work! It will
It was quite a convention.
The evil angels went eagerly
to their assignments causing
Christians everywhere to get
more busy and more rushed,
going here and there.
I guess the question is: Has
the devil been successful at
his scheme? You be the
judge! Does "busy" mean:

Victory @ last!!

Year 2011 is fast wrapping up and I just felt that this message was for the moment.I couldn't think of any better message than this tagged "victory @ last!!".Read and be blessed.
When we talk about victory at last,the first thing that comes to our mind is victory at the end of a battle.Battle here doesn't necessarily mean the physical one that soldiers go for,i mean spiritual,social,academical,financial,marital or even physical battles.You can imagine trying to get something for years and you've been denied,then finally you got it,i'm sure you know the next thing you would say 'victory at last',and that will be your story today.Every of your outstanding blessing that seems as if its not forthcoming,i decree that before the end this year,they will be in your hands in the mighty name of jesus.
Now lets search the scriptures and we are going to look at the lives of people who had victory at last.
In luke 8 vs 43-48,the woman with the issue of blood,this woman had really suffer a lot for 12 solid years.You could imagine how lean and poor she must have been,even the bible recorded it in verse 43,but at last she was victorious.One thing that we should all learn from here is that,the woman had an unshakeable faith.Her faith made her take that bold step of touching the hem of jesus's garment(verse 44).Many christians nowadays don't have this kind of faith,any little problem,they give up easily which is not meant to be so.I don't know for how long you have been carrying this particular problem,all I know is that as sure as Jesus lives,they are going to varnish right NOW and you will have victory at last in jesus name.
Another example we are going to take a critical look at is blind bartimaeus,in mark 10:46-52,the bible recorded it that blind bartimaeus was by the highway for many years,38 years to be precise,he was helpless and hopeless,he had nobody to come to his rescue,until one day,Jesus was passing by and he got his healing.Notice something here.Blind bartimaeus was persistent,even when people shunned him,he kept on crying out loud "jesus,thou son of mercy,have mercy on me".The same people that shunned him were the same people that told him that jesus calleth him.I decree to your life that the same people that are mocking you today are the same set of people that will celebrate your victory in jesus name.
Another great example was Hannah(1st sam 1 vs 3-18).Hannah was a woman who was really loved by her husband but she had nothing to show for it(the fruit of the womb).She was in pain and anguish,but she never gave up,she kept on going to shiloh despite the fact that peninnah provocked,mocked her.In verse 11,hannah did something,she made a precise request that she needed a male child and she even added a vow and God answered her prayer.Every peninnah in your life that has constantly brought shame and anguish to your life shall be disgraced before the end of this year in jesus mighty name.
In conclusion,it is not over until it is over,your victory is coming on the way.Its your own time to shine.stay blessed.

The cracked pot.

A water bearer in China had
two large pots, each hung on
the ends of a pole which he
carried across his neck.
One pot had a crack in it,
while the other pot was
perfect and always delivered
a full portion of water. At the
end of the long walk from the
stream to the house, the
cracked pot arrived only half
For a full two years this went
on daily, with the bearer
delivering only one and a
half pots full of water to his
Of course, the perfect pot
was proud of its
accomplishments, perfect for
which it was made. But the
poor cracked pot was
ashamed of its own
imperfection, and miserable
that it was able to accomplish
only half of what it had been
made to do.
After 2 years of what it
perceived to be a bitter
failure, it spoke to the water
bearer one day by the
"I am ashamed of myself,
because this crack in my side
causes water to leak out all
the way back to your house."
The bearer said to the pot,
"Did you notice that there
were flowers only on your
side of the path, but not on
the other pot's side? That's
because I have always
known about your flaw, and I
planted flower seeds on your
side of the path. Every day
while we walk back, you've
watered them. For two years
I have been able to pick
these beautiful flowers to
decorate the table. Without
you being just the way you
are, there would not be this
beauty to grace the house."
Moral: Each of us has our
own unique flaws. We're all
cracked pots. But it's the
cracks and flaws we each
have that make our lives
together so very interesting
and rewarding. You've just
got to take each person for
what they are, and look for
the good in them.

The power of unity.

Once a man had a dream
in which his hands and
feet and mouth and brain
all began to rebel against
his stomach.
"You good-for-nothing
sluggard!" the hands said.
"We work all day long,
sawing and hammering
and lifting and carrying.
By evening we're covered
with blisters and
scratches, and our joints
ache, and we're covered
with dirt. And meanwhile
you just sit there, hogging
all the food."
"We agree!" cried the feet.
"Think how sore we get,
walking back and forth all
day long. And you just
stuff yourself full, you
greedy pig, so that you're
that much heavier to
carry about."
"That's right!" whined the
mouth. "Where do you
think all that food you love
comes form? I'm the one
who has to chew it all up,
and as soon as I'm
finished you suck it all
down for yourself. Do
you call that fair?"
"And what about me?"
called the brain. "Do you
think it's easy being up
here, having to think
about where your next
meal is going to come
from? And yet I get
nothing at all for my
And one by one the parts
of the body joined the
complaint against the
stomach, which didn't say
anything at all.
"I have an idea," the brain
finally announced. "Let's
all rebel against the lazy
belly, and stop working
for it."
"Superb idea!" all the other
members and organs
agreed. "We'll teach you
how important we are,
you pig. Then maybe
you'll do a little work of
your own."
So they all stopped
working. The hands
refused to do lifting and
carrying. The feet refused
to walk. The mouth
promised not to chew or
swallow a single bite. And
the brain swore it
wouldn't come up with
any more bright ideas. At
first the stomach growled
a bit, as it always did
when it was hungry. But
after a while it was quiet.
Then, to the dreaming
man's surprise, he found
he could not walk. He
could not grasp anything
in his hand. He could not
even open his mouth.
And he suddenly began to
feel rather ill.
The dream seemed to go
on for several days. As
each day passed, the man
felt worse and worse.
"This rebellion had better
not last much longer," he
thought to himself, "or I'll
Meanwhile, the hands and
feet and mouth and brain
just lay there, getting
weaker and weaker. At
first they roused
themselves just enough
to taunt the stomach
every once in a while, but
before long they didn't
even have the energy for
Finally the man heard a
faint voice coming from
the direction of his feet.
"It could be that we were
wrong," they were
saying. "We suppose the
stomach might have been
working in his own way
all along."
"I was just thinking the
same thing," murmured
the brain. "It's true that
he's been getting all the
food. But it seems he's
been sending most of it
right back to us."
"We might as well admit
our error," the mouth
said. "The stomach has
just as much work to do
as the hands and feet and
brain and teeth."
"Then let's get back to
work," they cried
together. And at that the
man woke up.
To his relief, he
discovered his feet could
walk again. His hands
could grasp, his mouth
could chew, and his brain
could now think clearly.
He began to feel much
"Well, there's a lesson for
me," he thought as he
filled his stomach at
breakfast. "Either we all
work together, or nothing
works at all."

Who is God?

He was dead and brought life!
He is risen and brings power!
He reigns and brings Peace!
The world can't
understand Him,
The armies can't defeat Him,
The schools can't explain Him, and
The leaders can't ignore Him.
Herod couldn't kill Him,The Pharisees couldn't confuse Him, and
The people couldn't hold
Nero couldn't crush Him,

The power of the
The ancient of days!
The ruler of rulers!
The leader of leaders!
The overseer of the overcomers, and
The sovereign Lord of all
that was and is and is to
And if that seems
impressive to you, try this for size.
His goal is a relationship
with ME!
He will never leave me,
Never forsake me,
Never mislead me,
Never forget me,
Never overlook me, and Ever cancel my
appointment in His
appointment book!
When I fall, He lifts me up!
When I fail, He forgives!
When I am weak, He is strong!
When I am lost, He is the way!
When I am afraid, He is my courage!
When I stumble, He steadies me!
When I am hurt, He heals me!
When I am broken, He mends me!
When I am blind, He leads me!
When I am hungry, He feeds me!
When I face trials, He is with me!
When I face persecution,He shields me!
When I face problems, He
comforts me!
When I face loss, He provides for me!
When I face Death, He
carries me Home!
He is everything for everybody, everywhere,
Every time, and everyway.
He is God, He is faithful.
I am His, and He is mine!
My Father in heaven can
whip the father of this world.
So, if you're wondering
why I feel so secure,
understand this...
He said it and that settles it.
God is in control, I am on
His side, and
That means all is well with my soul.
He is my source of
existence and my Savior.
He keeps me functioning
each and everyday.
Without Him, I am
nothing,but with Him I can do all things.(Philippians 4:13).....and do u know the funny thing,this is just few out of his million names,infact i call him "jehovah all names".

Speak life through praise.

It is loving to know that God loves everyone who gives him quality praise from the depth of the heart.No matter the situation you are going through,give God praise.Always know that when challenges come,positive thinking through praise takes you to the next level.
It doesn't matter where you are today,God has marked out a colourful future for you,don't sell off to sorrow,and don't give in to broken heartedness,everything that looks like a downward trend today is an upward thrust in disguise.That situation that looks like a stumbling block today is only a stepping stone to your next level of glory.
It takes the understanding of knowing who our God and saviour is to you for you to give him praise that is due to him whem in distress.Have this in mind that the greatest obstacle facing you in life will never require more than praise to become a miracle.If you are not thankful,you cannot be praiseful,you must first be thankful before you can be joyful and you must be joyful before you can praise,otherwise your praise becomes mere noise.
Everytime you smell confusion around you,switch on to praise and you will receive light from heaven that will show you the way out. Praise is it!You always enjoy dramatic triumphs in praise because God is there and because of His presence,He also executes judgement,wrought vengeance,and eradicate mourning.It is an end-time preserve of the saints and also a mystery(isaiah 61:1-3)which delivers into your hands end-time victories.
Always give praise no matter what the situation is because it is not over,speak life through praise.

The father's gift

A young man was getting ready to graduate from the college.For many months,he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer's showroom,and knowing that his father could well afford it,he told him that was all
he wanted.As Graduation day approached,the
young man awaited signs that his father
had purchased the car.
Finally,on the morning of his graduation,his father called him into his private study room.His father told him
how proud he was to have such a fine son,and
told him how much he loved him.He handed his son a beautiful wrapped
gift box.
Curious,but somewhat
disappointed,the young man opened the box and found a lovely,leather-
bound Bible,with the young man's name embossed in gold.Angrily,he raised his voice to his father and
said,"With all your
money you give me a
Bible?"and stormed out of
the house,leaving the Bible.
Many years passed and the young man was very successful in business.He
had a beautiful home and
wonderful family, but realized his father was
very old,and thought perhaps he should go to
him.He had not seen him since that graduation day.
Before he could make arrangements,he
received a telegram telling
him his father had passed
away,and willed all of his possessions to his son.He needed to come home immediately and take care
of things.When he
arrived at his father's house,sudden sadness
and regret filled his heart.He began to search his father's important papers
and saw the still new Bible,just as he had left it years ago.With tears,he
opened the Bible and began to turn the pages.His father had carefully underlined a verse,Matt 7:11,
"And if ye,being evil,know how to give good gifts to your children,how much more shall your Heavenly father which is in heaven, give to those who ask Him?"
As he read those words,a car key dropped from the
back of the Bible.It had a
tag with the dealer's
name,the same dealer who had the sports car he
had desired.On the tag was the date of his
graduation,and the words..."PAID IN FULL".
Hope you grabbed a message from many times do we miss God's blessings
because they are not packaged as we expected?

It's not time to give up (part 2).

Hello everyone,happy new month to you all.We've come to the second part of "it's not time to give up",hope you enjoyed the part 1 where we discussed on 5 main reasons why you shouldn't give up.Today we are going to see other reasons why you should not give up.Here they are;
6)Believe in your dreams,don't sell yourself short:In life there are going to be many people who will try to bring you down
and tell you that what you want to achieve is not possible.Don’t let anyone destroy your dreams.
7)Your family and friends:Let the people you love and who mean the world to you be your inspiration to persist and persevere.Maybe you need to try a
different angle,study more or practice more but don’t give up!
8)There are people worse off:Right there are many are many people who are in a worse situation and
environment than you are right now.Are you
thinking about giving up running 5 miles a week?Think about the people who are unable to even walk and how much they
would give to be able to run 5 miles everyday.
9)Let the haters hate:There will always be haters.Thats something that is just inevitable.There will always be plenty of naysayers and people who try to tear you down.Don’t pay attention to them and don't take what they say to heart.Let the haters hate and you keep believing in yourself.
10)You deserve to be happy:Don’t ever let anybody tell you otherwise.You
deserve to be happy and you deserve to have success. Keep that
mindset and never give up until you reach your destination.
11)You are so close:Often when you feel like you want to give up and you are about to give up,just know that you are so close to making a huge breakthrough.
Here we come to the end of "it's not time to give up.One last thing I want to tell you and that I want you to always remember is that,each time you are about to give up,you are just a heartbeat away from success.I thank you all for the maximum support you have been giving to me,I promise to keep on the good work.God bless you all.........I remain my humble self,Ayobami Okediji.
