You might have listened to this over and over again but for me, I get a different feeling anytime this song moves through my ears. Stay blessed.

"Was this not the same man I saw beating his wife some few minutes ago? How come he is here leading the praises and worship session of the morning service" I am very sure we have all questioned the behaviour of our fellow brothers after they displayed two different ones.
Anyway, first of all, I agree we are all human and as my friend will always argue, the devil is at work but sometimes I think it is actually the "other side" of us. Simple and short, we all have skeletons in our closet. I don't want to talk about the arguement which says "its the devil" but let us clear our closet and take away the skeletons in there. Remember God testified about Job to the devil that there is no one perfect on earth like him[Job]. To me, God has searched through Jobs closet and He found no skeleton. There is nothing Job was hiding from the sight of God. Some of us are not open to our fellow men, we do hide things from our brothers and sisters, we hide things from our wifes and husbands, we do things in secret. What is it that you are hiding in that closet of yours? You can't hide it forever. Some of us are soo nice to people outside but when we get to our homes, its a different issue. What is it that is hanging in your closet that you are aware its not good but is not ready to let go? You may be hanging anger, disrespect, theft and a whole lot of things. All of these you don't do in public except when you are alone, when no one is watching. When you are outside, people use you as a reference but when you are alone, you know yourself you don't deserve that reference position. Why can't you simply display the same attitude, character etc that you display outside? Why can't you create that same sound environment you do create in town for others at home for your children, wifes, husbands parents etc? It is not being at church always but what you do when you put the Bible down is what am talking about. It is not what you do when your boss or manager is around but what you do or say in his or her absence is what am talking about and definately its not what you write on your blog that matters or what you do when you are behind the computer in the office with everyone around that matters but what you do with the computer alone in a room etc is what am talking about.
Our closets need a clean up, a shake up and a complete restructuring plan because they are simply "ditty". What we do in the open for others to see doesn't matter my brother, sister, father and my sweet mother, what we do when no one is watching is what matters.
God looks in the heart and not the outward appearance[Ist Samuuel 16:7]. The heart is your closet. What you plan or have in there no one knows and God is interested in that.
What do we have in our closet? Are our closets clean enough? Will people be happy with what we do in secret? Do you have skeletons in there?
God have mercy .

I remember very well, I was very young by then when I got pregnant. Yes don't be supprised, I got pregnant at an early age but its so sad I never gave birth to that baby. I aborted it.
This brings us to our topic for today; ABORTION. This kind of abortion am talking about is the only abortion that is carried out by both male and female. Let me ask you this simple question. Have you ever had a dream that you never lived up to? Yes, that is the abortion am talking about. Whaen I was young, I wanted to be a doctor but am ending up in the procurement feild now. I have killed that doctor dream. I have "aborted" it. So it is with many of us. We have all "aborted" dreams one way or the other.
Sometimes, we kill or abort the dreams either by our own sudden change of mind, by fear, negative thoughts and even those around us have trained themselves to be doctors ready to abort our dreams. Most of us even conceed defeat even before we take on the challenge. Words such as "No, I can't do this, I can't compete in this, I can't afford this, My certificate doesn't match up to his or hers, he or she is more beautiful than me, As for them, they come from a rich family,This is too difficult for someone like me" are all sharp blades and surgical knifes that are ready to help you abort your own dream if you give them the chance to.
Am not very matured but one thing I have known is that those dreams you once had were
natural. Following that dream might have made you great but you have aborted it.
Have a dream, follow it and make it a reality. You have no boundry around your power of imagination and dreaming. Dream big. Inject some positive thinking into your life, follow your dream and let nothing stop you. You don't have money so what? You are not hadsome and you don't have that certificate so what? Don't abort the dream. Live it and make it a reality because you don't know who is waiting for your invention and what help it will be for those around.
Have a blessed weekend and stay blessed.

During break time at the office, I just sat with a friend and with my phone in hand, I started reading through some of the old sms I have received from friends. One caught my attention and I really want to share it with all my blog readers. He took it from EXODUS 23 VRS 25 - 27 and it reads;
25.. Worship the LORD your God, and his blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you,
26.. and none will miscarry or be barren in your land. I will give you a full life span.
27.. "I will send my terror ahead of you and throw into confusion every nation you encounter. I will make all your enemies turn their backs and run.
I hope this little word blesses you and gives you a reason to worship your God.
Have a nice weekend, take care, walk in His ways, stay focussed, be kind to those around you, remember me when you kneel to pray as I also remember you and more importantly trust in God for He can do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think.
God bless you.
