LICENSED

Whirling in the deep
Groping in darkness
Reasoning like fools
Short of understanding
These words describes the state of a man
Whose existence fulfills mundane purposes

The king extends his arm of love
He lets go his rays of light
He calls us out of darkness
Into his marvelous light
That we might show forth his praise

The praise of the king
Is an extension of his manifest glory
He endows the chosen with an excellent spirit
He fuses grace and dexterity into our abilities

The fusion of grace and dexterity
Incubates the personality of the chosen
He operates beyond mediocrity
And can unravel mysteries like Daniel did for the king of Babylon

Though the men of the earth are impressed
Paying obeisance as we walk by
They applaud the works
And commend the signs that they see
It would be worse than folly
For the chosen to believe or imagine
That the praises are for him

The king chose you from the pits
He commissioned you in his might
The dexterity you display
Is a license from the king
It qualifies you as an art work
A work made to display his glory

Wisdom entails that the art of the master
Never forgets that all he is
All that he has
All he shall ever own
And all he shall ever become
Is a license

One which qualifies him
To be ridden by the king into the nations
we are the licensed

GOD IS KIND : The hurt of dissapointment

Sometimes you can't even ask why. Perhaps because you know everything doesn't quite lie in God's hands. Yet when it comes to things you have absolutely no control over, you are tempted to think it's in His hands. Even at that, you still can't ask why. Well maybe you can, but I can't.  I have had a good dose of pain and disappointment enough to separate my ideology of God from life's occurrences. Before life started giving me rude shocks, I used to think God will always protect me by preventing pain. As I grew older and met with more battles, I learnt to accept the part of God's protection which delivers  me from pain well after I have felt its excruciating bite and I came to this conclusion; God is and is forever kind. The earth is fallen; I may not be exempted from all its ugliness, but God will always be kind enough to deliver me if He doesn't prevent it.   By the time you will be reading this, I would have shared my testimony. While I hop

GOD IS KIND: The potency of trust

Read Part 4 here On this third day of praise, I felt like drinking Chinese tea. My praise jam was on already and I was reading my bible and making my confessions in preparation for my dance. I couldn’t shake off the urge to drink the tea. I made it and started sipping.  I started cramping badly. I was wondering why is this happening, I’ve had my period already. I don’t have endometriosis anymore. I will tell you how God delivered me from that one shortly.I continued my dance in pain. Before I knew it, I felt pressured below. I washed my hands and sent it there. Men and brethren, Look who came out . Both are the same fibroid. Picture 1: After I washed it. Picture 2: When it just fell out. I  felt different  emotions at once. One of which was fear. Ah God! What is this again? Are there more? What next? How long would this monster keep coming back? I summoned courage and resumed my praise. I gave my best dance that third day.  Shortly afterwards, my husband called. I didn’t know if I shou

SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT

Social media has always been there; but not everyone paid close attention or saw the need to set up a profile for themselves or their businesses.   With COVID-19 radically obstructing the norm, more individuals and businesses have woken up to the necessity of having a social media profile.  I believe you have been woke for a very long time or perhaps you are just waking up. Either way, congratulations!!! Perhaps you got on board and  realised that it is not as easy as people make it seem.  You wonder how to successfully handle your social media pages to correctly represent your personality and opinion as an individual.  You have barely figured out how to use Facebook to successfully promote your business, only to hear people say Instagram is the best marketing platform and you are confused. You barely find time to post because your actual life or business routine is too full You hear about the many social media platforms- google+, Pinterest, Linkedin, Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat, Perisco
