TRUST

This is for all those who feel like they are carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders. Just trust God.

Day by day, we are faced with situations that cause to doubt and panic, situations that discourage us and often deflate our enthusiasm. Such situations invite us to practice trust in the Lord for in doing so we find the ability to stay on top of the situation. Doubt and fear always have a way of pulling us down. The more we doubt the more we are paralyzed and rendered incapable of positive action. The anti-dote to doubt is trust and this requires us to focus on the Lord rather than the circumstances. With the Lord, there really is no need to be afraid. His power to save is beyond reason; all we need do is trust.

KINDNESS

 

 

 

Kindness is one thing we often take for granted, Kindness to fellow men in both our actions and words. You know what comes to mind a TV programme I watched a couple of days back and it was about a woman who was being generous by donating dolls to kids and what touched me was that something as insignificant as that could actually affect lives. It is a wakeup call for every one of us to do the little things we can to help put smiles on the faces of those who experience little or no joy in their lives.

Say NO to insurgency and YES to a peaceful Nigeria. GOD bless you all and have a lovely week ahead.

 

RESPECT

This is the second post in a series of post on 100words. Stay tuned for more enlightening posts. Let’s dig in.

Respect they say is reciprocal and as such, this respect should be extended to both young and old. We Nigerians are used to the notion that respect should be given to only older people but the truth is that everyone deserves to be respected. We need to respect peoples? choices, opinions, religion, and ideologies. It does not matter if we agree with their own point of view or not, it matters not if they are younger or older, rich or poor. Once we understand that each human person is a unique being, this respect will come easier and more willingly.

Religious Confusion

This is the first of the 100 words post.

How confused can we be as a people, one leg in, and one leg out. We go to church at dawn; to the shrine at dusk. Our amulets compete for space with the rosary. We treat the baptismal water poured on our heads as a sham and place sacrificial goat-blood on our chests. We echo one loud amen in the church and another in the shrine. The tongue is filled with food of idols and the food of angels. The bible even struggles for space under the pillow with the charms. Oh, African Christian whom do you choose to follow.

100 WORDS

For the next couple of days, I would be doing a series of short posts under the category 100 words. I am going to be pouring creativity into just 100 words and you are all invited to join me in this new series. I am used to writing long posts; I absolutely enjoy writing them and then lying back with a glass of wine to read them. I advise you to do the same too. 100 words is about saying the things that really matter in a straightforward manner- no sidestepping or painting the issues. Just straight to the point.

Say no to insurgency and Yes to a Peaceful Nigeria. God bless you all.
