#Note to many selves

I think I have had it with people hurting and crying because of fellow humans. How many tears are shed because someone somewhere did not care that a heart is a living organ?? Well, (read this on twitter), "I wish intelligence was for sale, I would buy you a whole GB!!!"And to some even a terabyte would not suffice.

I love men and women who make use of their minds before they act, before you tossle that heart around, do mind games and play solitaire with the hearts...avoiding heart dramas and hurt episodes. I am not talking to the care-free souls ....such need Christ first.

this is a note to many selves, mine included, you can choose to play with things say cards, ropes etc but HEARTS are not in the list of "Items you can play with"

Ladies and gentlemen, if we are not ready to take responsibility, then choose to play solitaire, FIFA, et.al. Last time I checked, heart games was not listed in the All-africa Games or the Olympics.

God has entrusted us with alot, and every deed shall be put to judgement. A heart is beloved of God, kindly be found faithful as a caretaker of His creation.

Come 2012, can we be more honourable in how we treat our fellow humans! I do not think it is human sleeping and enjoying your life, while you killed a soul, sucked the life out of it due to greed or other reasons excuses that we might have.

~We all need to arise, think and have a heart of love. A heart of God.~

Not without a fight

Ever wanted to give up, give in, raise a white flag

Ever wanted to give it all up in a second for your heart is faint

No longer a brave spirit,

No longer a tough one

The battlefield is too hot for you

Your sword is too blunt

A prayer in the fire would suffice

But I am dry

I am tired

I am faint

But like Jacob

I am not letting go

This is my prayer in the battle

"Not without my blessing Lord!! I will fight on till You bless me Lord"

I am not giving up,

High and dry as I look

I am fighting on

Even when You touch the socket of my hip bone Lord

I will fight on,

Not until You bless me

Not until You rename me, give me a new identity

Not until You refill my cup Lord

Not until You restore what the locust has consumed

Not until I touch the hem of your garment Lord

Not until I see your face Father

Not without a fight,

For when it comes to things of the Lord

I forge on

For what else is life if not with and of God

For what do I benefit when I gain the whole world Lord??

Until I arrive at my Peniel

To meet my God

It will be not without a fight

*this is to all who are waiting on God, do not give up. Never even contemplate to do so. For with God, we have eternal life and peace which cannot be compared to what the World has to offer. Forge on until He blesses you, gives you a new name, until you meet our Lord face to face.

2011 ends...dare not  enter 2012 without having Jesus. Be Born again,not of flesh but by the Spirit. Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord. This is what salvation is. You need Jesus...I need Him...I have HIM.

Do you know Jesus?? How else will you reach Peniel if you know not the Father??

~Inspired by Genesis 32:22-31~

CHRISTmas Meaning.

The magic of Christmas in not in the presents but in His presence!!!!

Christmas to me is an extension of what we have been doing and not a one off happening that is easily scrapped off your mind come the dawn of 26th December every year. Christmas without Christ is like having baby shower in a bachelor's pad!!! Christmas, a time to commemorate the birth of Christ, has been replaced with merry making, exchanging gifts and what not!!!

"unto us a KING is born in a manger, the saviour of the world". the best we can do is to have CHRISTmas in our hearts. Let Christ rule and reign our hearts now and ever more. Christ is not found under the Christmas tree, or through the chimney as Hollywood has made us believe, or through the thousand of beer bottles that are guzzled down.

Had this day been your day, the best we would do is to put a smile on your face. Lets make Jesus happy as we celebrate Christmas.

Bring love to every empty soul, strength to every dying heart. Spread love to that beggar you pass by everyday, touch an enemy and #spreadlove. Love is the heartbeat of God.

Merry Christmas.....Christ is the only reason why we celebrate Christmas.

Be blessed.

My Lessons from 2011

Wow!! 11 days and 2011 is gone, 2012 here we come people!!! I remember when we were approaching 2011, I wrote, "For life is short, Eternity is long my friend..."

Now 2011 is fading away and 2012 is here.

We are older, probably richer, to some happier, more depressed, or did we add years to life but not value to it?

For me, this year marked 11 years of salvation in Christ and its been the rise and fall of Bev. I fall, i hurt, I dust off, I rise and I note my pothole in my life's highway. For the more I grow old, the wiser I would love to become....so here are my 20 greatest life lessons from 365 days, 8760 hours...etc etc...that's how long a year is!!! :-)

  1. You shall have no other gods BEFORE or BESIDES ME!!!
  2. Be a witness in the BOARDROOM too, not only in the church.
  3. Life is all about relationships, the rest is just details.
  4. Honour the Lord with your tithes and offerings (yes with both), test Him with your giving and watch Him open the floodgates of Heaven for you!
  5. Nothing beats God, not brokenness, $$rate, heartbreaks, loss of loved ones!!!NOTHING!!!
  6. In His own timing, not in MINE!!!HIS!!! He maketh things beautiful.
  7. Friends!!!TRUE FRIENDS are lifetime jewels!!! Handle them with care!
  8. I discovered this late, but better late than never! Develop strategies of how to MAKE, SAVE,GROW, GIVE and  SPEND money!!! Have a personal financial action plan.Write your vision down and make your request known to God!!
  9. As your spending increases, so should your giving!! It is better to give than to receive
  10. Smile smile smile!!! Your smile is someone else's ray of hope:-)
  11. Own your lifestyle!! just because  its trending does not mean its compulsory or acceptable!!
  12. Thank you, excuse me, I am sorry>>>>should always be on your lips 24-7!!
  13. COURTESY goes a long way!! Reply texts, answer calls, call people back, respond to peoples' comments....I do not believe some people are broke 12 months in a row!!!
  14. LOVE is beautiful!!!
  15. Bless your boss, speak blessings into your employer!!!QUIT WHINING.

  17. Its okay to CRY...its natures way of cleansing your eyes
  18. EAT HEALTHILY, DRINK LOTS of WATER>>>>its cheaper than hitting the gym or trying out expensive weight loss techniques.
  19. YOUR BODY, HIS TEMPLE #enough said
  20. Have fun, God too has a sense of humour!!
