ONE MORE LEAP

Like thunder jolts
The voice of the referee bolts
On your mark, get positioned, GO!
Athletes like wave, race towards the finish line
They move their fist ahead of them
Being propelled by the energy within

Phew! An athlete outruns the next
Then another and another and another
Steady and strong he seems
But for a while
Suddenly,his limbs fail him
As it is when a bowl is placed on a broomstick

In agony he groans
Leaning his mass on the earth beneath him
Seconds tick
As competitors seem to approach his spot
A spin of fear grasp his mind at the sight of another
Who seem to be ahead

In dogged determination
He supports his weight on his hand
Slowly but firmly, he pulls himself up again
Devoted to his dream
He continues the race

Getting ahead of the others
He stands less than a meter away from the finish line
His bones seem to crack
As his legs wobble underneath him

Like rushing waters
A flood of courage surges through him
In the might of a conqueror
He takes just one more leap
And he becomes the gold medalist!

Like swarms of flies
Everyone reaches for the Zenith in life
We start off well
Only to grow weary half way
If you would remind your self
That all mountains are surmountable
All oceans are cross able
Then, you would realize
That all dreams are achievable
If you would just take
ONE MORE LEAP!

HOW TO SPOT A GOOD MAN

Last night at Insure your marriage  online conference, I was privileged to teach on the subject, Good men are hard to find. Is that  true? Destroying the myths and lies that make women settle for less than God's best. This post is a copy of what I shared with them. I did a different post for a meaty part of the Q and A.  Check it out. Once you are done with this.  Let's Define God's best God's best in marriage is a spouse and a situation that sets you up for growth  in these areas 👉Spiritual 👉Financial 👉Emotional 👉Relational The term set up means it may not be in the "package" that you expect because it is first committed to helping you mature into God's picture of you,  than it is about making you feel fly. If you truly understand this, you will be delivered from these o n your marital journey,  ✅ Comparison  ✅Jealousy ✅ impatience/Haste ✅ Discouragement Please don't misunderstand me. I am not saying that your current psychologically sick b

WISE COUNSEL TO QUESTIONS SINGLES ASK - PART 1

The difference between being at peace in a relationship and having your heart troubled till you can't breathe is in the counsel you heed to. I've seen beautiful relationships even marriages crumble because  one or both of them listened to a "thus says the Lord, that's not your husband/wife".  While I believe that God leads us in the area of marriage, He doesn't expressly tell everyone who to marry. There are some people he told.  However, he has placed wisdom pillars on our path to help make the right decisions. The questions below are asked by real people I have  met on my ministry journey.  I will keep adding to it as I find the time to write here.  For now, I hope these ones would help hold the torch as you search the truth for your specific situation. Question 1   If you have someone coming to you for a relationship who takes alcohol like one or two bottles, doesn't get drunk on it and says he is a Christian. Can this person be classified as a good Chr

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
