Eph 5:16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

Your life is a canvas – you decide what you want to paint on it, you can splash it with paint and daub it with brush strokes aimlessly, hoping to achieve nothing and ending with nothing or you can pre-plan what you want to do, have a mental picture of what you are hoping to achieve, translate them into actions and choices and set about making out of yourself a master piece.

You must work conscious of the fact that you can be stopped mid-way in your brush strokes and your picture left uncompleted, yet you must leave everyone that sees the picture with the impression that every brush stroke you made was with a purpose, that you are going somewhere until you were stopped mid-way.

Every brush stroke you make are actions, decisions and choices and they have consequences they affect the overall picture of your life. No brush stroke is inconsequential for each of them contribute to the sum total of the picture – your Life. The actions and choices of yesterday is the vehicle that brought you to where you are today and if you don’t like the picture of your life, you make more intelligent and creative choices (brush strokes).Your actions must be enveloped in purpose it makes the overall picture of your life beautiful.

Living a purposeful life makes life meaningful.
A purposeless life is a life that is aptly captured by the popular rhyme of Solomon grundy:

Christened on Tuesday
Married on Wednesday
Took ill on Thursday
Worse on Friday
Died on Saturday
Buried on Sunday
This is the end of
Solomon Grundy

It is sad today that so many people are living a solomon grundy type of life. They are caught in the loop of meaningless living. They don’t know where they are coming from, nor where they are or where they are going. They waste their life and time as if it can be duplicated, they don’t live by design, they live by default. And they blame everyone and everything for their lot in life. Finally, they die unsung with all their God given potentials. Tragic but true.

This year provides an opportunity for you to set the tone for the next 10 years, where do you want to be in the next 10 years. What would you want to be doing ? Picture it for a moment in your mind. Now start taking steps to get there. The future is yours.

You know joy has come when you can dance without music, when your mouth becomes the musical instruments and the whole cells of your body becomes the choir. Vibrating in harmony to the beat of your soul. It doesn't matter if you are off key, it is not important if your steps are off beat as you do the shuffle, tears of gratitude may cascade down your eyes as your heart connects with the angelic choir in heaven as you know Unspeakable joy full of glory... In that single moment you know you are created for this... to bring forth HIS praise... Halleluyah... Let the whole earth sing HIS praise...


Don't despise what you have, take time out to understand the potential of what you carry. It may look small to you or everyone else, but with God's involvement, your time and dedication it will become big. The big is in the small, a tiny seed can make a forest. Do something with what you have NOW, your future is in your seed. YOU WILL GET THERE...


The presence of Jesus in the boat is not a guarantee that storms of life will not come, but it is a guarantee that they will not overcome you. Every doer of the word is guaranteed to outlast the storm. The 3 Hebrew children came out of fire to their places of prominence in a foreign land, Daniel came out of the the Lion's Den unscathed, Job lost all and gained much more back. Whatever you are going through, God has an unquencheable Laughter in stock for you that will erase the pain and pressure you are going through. See as HE sees you, on the other side of the storm, fully fulfilled and satisfied, nothing missing, nothing broken. HE is waiting for you on the other side. YOU WILL GET THERE...


"How you handle relationships, will determine, if you will have open doors or will be standing before doors with broken knobs" God has scheduled the people in your life for a purpose, the challenge is to recognize them and the purpose for which they are in your life Most things that God wants to get to you, will come through the vehicle of relationships, an angel may not appear to u but God will use people "In life, There are people in life that you must not MEET and there are people in life that you must not MISS. The challenge is to know the difference."
