THE SCHEDULE

Name and date are fiction. None of this was written to any known living or dead person

A schedule is a plan that lists all that you have to do and when you must do each. God is very orderly and leaves nothing to chance. His design for your life is already worked out. There are things he wants you to get at specific points in life.

Some of us allow distractions to delay us from entering the glory of our purpose in due season. We are busy running after destiny threatening relationships because we want to “belong”.

Jesus had this understanding and was committed to the schedule of God for his life. “Here I am – it is written about me in the scrolI; have come to do your will, o God.” Hebrew 10:7
He didn’t get sexually involved with anyone because he knew that part was not in the plan. Hence, nursing a romantic relationship with anyone would have been a waste of time. He knew his purpose was to save mankind from sin and he focused on his assignment.
He lived for only 33 years and some months. That’s too short you may say. But God does not count days like we do. The bible says “a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.” Psalm 90:4

The number of years Jesus spent on earth and the tremendous impact of his accomplishment on the entire human race confirms that the fulfillment of purpose is more relevant than the number of years spent. 


This understanding should make us decide not to do things because everyone else is doing it; as we may not have the same number of years allocated to us. Do only that which is relevant to God’s purpose for your life. I’m not saying you shouldn’t do everyday necessities; but of course every day necessities contribute to your fulfillment of purpose in significant ways. Rather I’m saying you must not commit to major decisions that are irrelevant to your fulfillment of purpose. What good would it be to a student who is enrolled at the University for a Bachelors degree in business management, but attending classes for student enrolled in pure and industrial chemistry, if he wouldn’t need the lessons for the achievement of his degree in business management?

Your time is priceless. Your purpose is scheduled. Are you behind, ahead or on schedule?

The renowned preacher, Pastor Kenneth Hagin said the Lord Jesus appeared to him in December 1953 and said to him, “Be faithful and fulfill thy ministry, my son, for the time is short.”

The man of God went to be with the lord in 2003. It means it was fifty years from the time of that vision to the time he passed on. Fifty years seem like a really long time but the Lord said it was short.

Do you know what length of time has been allocated to you? Why are you procrastinating about walking in God’s purpose? Are you waiting for the perfect feeling, no opposition, a huge bank account, and the full support of the whole world to start? Don’t forget that the fact that you are asleep doesn’t mean that the clock is standing still. Even If you ceased your breath for a few seconds, the clock would keep ticking. Why are you waiting for perfect moments to step into your destiny? It is better to live and fulfill purpose while young.

In our youthful years we can take up mental and physical tasks that we won’t be able to handle when old age comes. You could even make mistakes and find the time to correct them; but in old age, there is little or no time for mistakes and corrections. “It is good for a man to bear the yoke while he is young.” Lamentations 3:27

Stop saying I would start when I get married, after the kids are grown, after my masters or doctorate and all those perfect unreasonable excuses we give for living unfulfilled. Choose to be on schedule. Destiny is a delicate matter. Don’t ruin your life!

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 emptiness of hope

Read part 1 here  In Lagos, I fell ill as soon as I landed. The city is crazy. The traffic is unholy and the carbon monoxide infested air is an extension of hell. I didn't want to get back on that road to any hospital so we got a qualified nurse to come treat me at home.  The Nurse said she couldn't treat me except I did a pregnancy test alongside malaria test. Both came out positive. I was glad that the sickness wasn't Lagos madness inspired. My baby must have wanted to notify me since I refused to take a second look. Unfortunately, she used one of those quinine brands  in attempt to protect the baby. She sadly didn't check with me first.  I became miserable from all the itching like one who hugged devil's beans. I tried to rest as much as I could and thoroughly enjoyed both my family and ministry itinerary while being pampered like an egg. I preached passionately at the event I was invited to. I talked about loving God and serving him devotedly even when disa

GOD IS KIND: The Courage of patience

Read part 2 here It was a beautiful morning and yours truly was still bleeding.  I just got done making breakfast and was about to set the table when I felt an extra weight down there. I left the kitchen, washed my hands and sent it below while squatting. Men and brethren, see who fell off me.  The 1cm Fibroid they said I should be operated for A better view of the monster My husband and I gave thanks . God had delivered me early. I took these photos as proofs of his kindness and as reminders that He is still with and for me, regardless.  I became hopeful and patiently waited to conceive another. I can't deny  that I had several moments of sadness and weeping. My husband who wasn't moved by the situation became worried for my worry. He bought me things, took me out regularly and kept asking what he could do to make me happy. While I appreciated his efforts, they weren't enough to comfort my grieving soul. I had many, many days of sadness.   January went by, so did February.
