A successful person is one who takes the cold water dumped on his or her plans, heats it up with enthusiasm, and manufactures the steam that helps him/her push ahead.

– John C. Maxwell

THIS IS WHO I AM!


It is said that when you see a turtle on a fence post, it sure had help getting there. That’s me! I’ve had help from God and from His people.

When I look at my life I see a picture of grace – favor unmerited both from God and man. I am a Christ – i.a.n! Without Christ, I Am Nothing! Outside of His precious grace I’m an empty shell devoid of any meaningful substance, but in Him I am complete; graced, empowered, and enabled to succeed. I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. I am also the workmanship of God in Christ Jesus. I am created unto good works which Christ has before ordained that I should walk therein. When you look at me and like what you see, don’t hate me or loathe me. It’s not my fault, it’s just my God!

I’m totally a picture of grace. Saved by grace. Justified by mercy. Enveloped by favor. Called unto glory. Positioned for success. That is who I am!

So, I sing with Sinach:
I’m walking in power
I walk in miracles
I live a life of favor
I know who I am!

Do you?

“IMPOSSIBLE” IS JUST AN EXCUSE!


I welcome you dear friends to the second half of 2014. My prayer is that it would be for you a better and more fulfilling half. You will end the year 2014 well! You will finish strong, in Jesus name!

My encouragement to you today comes from a book I’ve been reading the past few days. It is written by a very good friend of mine, Gbenga Sesan and it is titled In My Own Words.

“1 minus 2 is impossible until you know the answer. In my elementary school, we were told that it was impossible to subtract a higher number from a lower one. The unanimous answer, in the rare moments the questions was asked, was a loud “impossible!” But a few years later, in secondary school, I was taught that if a higher number is subtracted from a lower number, I will have a negative number. It was no longer deemed impossible simply because we knew better than when we were in primary school. How many times in life are we almost tempted to call certain things impossible? If you could just learn more about the problem, you will soon come to terms with the fact that “impossible” is just an excuse we give when we do not have enough knowledge to tackle a problem. The answer may be strange, but every problem has a solution…. 1 minus 2 is not “impossible”; you only need to gain enough knowledge to know the answer.”

What do you call “impossible”? Go ahead, acquire enough knowledge and tackle the problem. Impossible is nothing! And with God on your side, nothing shall be impossible unto you! I do hope you find this encouraging and motivating as I have, as we enter the final half of the year. You will succeed!

WHATEVER GOD HAS SAID ABOUT YOUR LIFE IS COMING TO PASS!


Permit me to step aside and let this piece speak to you. Be blessed!

“When God has spoken and what He has promised has not come to pass, that is the guarantee that you are not dying yet. A promise from God will keep you alive until it is fulfilled. Do not worry that it is taking time; He is giving you a longer time to be around. Do not allow what is going on in the environment to run the Word of God out of your heart. Deprivation is making some of us desperate. We think that if it does not happen now, it is not God.

God does not measure time the way we measure it. A wise one said several years ago; “God created man, man created the clock. Man is now using the clock to time God.” Can you hold on to a promise from God for forty-five straight years like Joshua and Caleb did? If Jesus tarries, forty-five years from now, some of us will still be around and the circumstances of our lives will be proof of the fulfillment of God’s Word….Everything that God has said about your life is coming to pass.”

This is from one of the books I read lately, Success Guaranteed by the Blood Covenant by Sam Adeyemi.

Hold on to your promise, dear friend. I believe in your destiny. Whatever God has said about your life is coming to pass!

The Power of One


“I am only one
But still I am one.
I cannot do everything
But still I can do something;
And because I cannot do everything
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do”

This poem by Edward Everett Hale is an inspiration. And it is the thought I want to commit to your meditation right now.

It can be overwhelming trying to make a difference or changing the world. And come to think of it, you can’t take on the world like that. Changing the entire world begins and really is all about influencing the person next to you. You may not be able to do everything. That is sure. As humans we are finite. We have limited capacities-capacities of time, money, expertise, knowledge and influence. I cannot do everything. You cannot do everything. But that shouldn’t stop you from doing the little you can do.

See, it is little drops of water that make a mighty ocean. If you do what you can, and I do what I can; maybe we can together change the world. Jesus said it this way: “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16) It does not matter the size of your light-big or small? Your responsibility is to let it shine. You do what you can and leave the rest to God.

Look around you today: What one thing can you change? What one step can you take that will make a difference in the world – your own little corner of the world? What one thing can you do – make a statement, do an act of kindness, volunteer your time and skills, lend your voice to a cause and speaking out? Be a force for good and for God in your immediate environment – your family, workplace, and neighborhood. Go ahead and do that, friend. Now, that’s how to be a world-changer!
