ELIJAH'S BURGER





Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah: Leave here, turn eastward and hide in the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan. You will drink from the brook, and I have directed the ravens to supply you with food there. So he did what the Lord had told him. He went to the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan, and stayed there. The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening, and he drank from the brook.
1 kings 17:2-6

Just recently I was studying the scriptures and I had my younger brother-Precious by me.
When I saw verse 6, I mindlessly said, "What does bread and meat taste like?"

Of course I was imagining one loaf of hot "Agege" bread (a Lagos brand of bread) and "suya"(name for roasted beef sold at street corners in Lagos).

Just then, my brother said, "bread and meat is burger". Boy! I couldnt agree less. I had to call it Elijah's burger and we both laughed about it.

Isnt amazing to know that God gave Elijah a specific address and free meal tickets at the Raven's restaurant?

Sweetheart, we must stop limiting God. He still provides in extraordinary ways and through the strangest channels even today!

As a child, we had times of nothingness in our house. My father-Bishop Dr. Peter Atulaegwu was and is a full time minister.

I saw and heard my dad pray and just before he got off his knees, there would be a knock on the door by someone who had the answer to his prayer.

We no longer have periods of nothingness but we STILL AND WOULD FOREVER look up to God for our needs. God never failed US.

I learnt from my father how to see God as a loving and caring father. In fact, we were not to ask dad and mum for anything if we hadnt first told God.

I learnt to Trust God in those periods of nothingness and I am still learning in my surplus.

God loves you
Yes, he already gave you free meal/life tickets for all the good things you desire. See psalm 34:9-10

DONT GIVE UP ON GOD, BABY!!

Love you
Anne Atulaegwu

IS RESPECT REALLY RECIPROCAL?

While respect is due regard for the feelings, wishes, or rights of others (Oxford dictionaries.com); the word reciprocal refers to something done, given, felt, or owed in return (The free dictionary.com) The popular phrase "respect is reciprocal" is said to urge people to regard the feelings, wishes or rights of others first, before expecting respect in return. Read: The art of getting along The human nature has the tendency to give back what it gets. Hence, people would averagely respect anyone who respects them. However, there is no guarantee that people would regard your feelings or wishes when they have to make decisions or act. Therefore, it is unreasonable to respect people only because you want respect in return. Having such expectation could lead to hurt when people fail to reciprocate the respect you have offered them.

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.

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
