You will smile again!

Your life is not determined by what happened to you but by how you react to what happened to you. Your life is not determined by what life brings to you but by your attitude towards what life brought to you.

Issues of life could be advantageous or disadvantageous. It all depend on your attitude towards them. Be informed that a positive attitude is the key that causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts that makes good things happen in life. The thought that make you react to events of life as a challenge to grow you up is like a catalyst, it speeds you up to fulfilment, it causes a spark that creates extraordinary results.

As I look back to my life story so far, I see that, certain things that happened to me happened not to break me but to make me the better me and the outcome are always great each time that i learn from those happenings. OMG! The fact that you are still here is the proof that you can get back up again, so keep your head up, you can smile again.

It is OK to feel tired, cry if you must but never back down to your fear. Though it is all filled with darkness now, just a little tick tack of time, light will shine again to light your path. Weeping may endure for a night, joy is here to stay with you in the dawn of this new day
Keep your head up. YOU CAN SMILE again!

Open your heart to hear and you will hear – Open your heart to perceive and you will perceive – Open your eyes to see and you will see.

Are you struggling with that inner bugle that it is all over for you? Hear that sound! It is a shout out, from God to you saying behold my child! New thing have I declare, let me lavish my love on you, for I still have more of what you needed the most to make your day bright again. It’s began with my story, that story of the sword that pierce my side, that story of the torn that hurt my head. Can`t you feel my breath, It still look like yesterday but over two thousands of years from long ago. Like an oracle from that place of skull from me to you I said It is finished! I mean it and non can contend it, non can question it but you can contain it. This I say again, It is finished! Your new chapter of life is opened again and all you need is just belief that it is open to you. Put yourself together and don`t forget; Keep your head up and SMILE again!

THE PASSING OF THE PAST

Let us discuss about yesterday. I mean; let us talk about the PAST, your past, my past, all of our past have the same thing in common which is; they have PASSED! Don`t get stocked to the past, you are not going that way and if you are not going that way  why do you want to waste your time and efforts on them? There is no FUTURE in the past, let the PAST PASS!

d6

On the Road to Emmaus, while they walk they talk, pouring out there frustration about an unexpected that had happened, that person they thought was a stranger reminded them that the past is supposed to be a pointer to tomorrow  and not to prevent moving on to a brighter future. He told them all they needed to know about what they were discussing about, at a point he took the bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them and then, their eyes were opened. When they recognized him, he disappeared from their sight. They asked each other – “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road…?                               

They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. Luke 24 vs 13 – 34; they knew immediately that it was time to let go and move on. Now is the time to give way for the future to come. TODAY is all it takes to obtain that glorious TOMORROW; don`t forget that those PAST were once today or tomorrow in their time but when men slept the enemy came to sow tears among that beautiful harvest .

The enemy? The enemy of seasons, the enemy of life, the enemy of times and chances, the enemy of your goals and dreams. So many times, we have been part of those things that we called enemies. Yes, you were part of those enemies; Oh! that means that you were also an enemy to your glorious future.                                            

Break forth and stop getting yourself glued to the PAST . Change your method of approaching that issue if you must, change that mentality, friends, habits etc. If necessary. Put yourself together . Dust your feet off from the dust of the PAST , you can take charge this time around. Set your goals right. Gather information if you must. Work a little bit more harder if required. Minimize your attachment to TV, Facebook, Internet etc. If you know that these are necessary.

Awake oh you sleepers! Put on your beautiful garment. Garment of that breakthrough in your businesses – Garment of success in your studies and career. You can make your marriage a working marriage and turn your home to a beautiful home. You can be that good parent that your children have always wanted and needed. The best thing that you can learn from the past is don’t make mistake that you have once made. No matter how ugly, sad, beautiful and lovely your past might have been. The truth is, THEY HAVE PASSED! Don’t’ let it hurt you, just let go of them.                                                                                                                 

You have today to live for and a brighter tomorrow to fight for, the whole wide world await your bounce back. LET THE PAST PASS!

DRIVEN BY PURPOSE -avoiding blind flight-

A set goal makes its owner ready to take charge of a new dawn. Things don’t just happen, people make it happen – goals just don’t become an achievement, unless it has been set by its owner. People don’t just run, unless there is a prize to obtain or for a purpose.

Future Flight

Evil in the air, when flight begins to fly blind: like every other days, they were all set to embark on a trip, some, a trip to see and hug their love ones so closed again, after a long time of separation by work, schools and so on – some to make more money in order to be sustained in the new dawn approaching and some, it is their long awaited vacation. Life is like a chain, one thing led to another. One seeking for something, while others another thing, but they all have one thing in common, they were heading towards a brand new day – no matter when you find this write up to read – tomorrow is a future because you have not been there yet and so also is the year to come.

In the same ship they boarded – “An Aeroplane” – the pilots, the plane attendants, the first class and business class passengers, to the list of the economy passengers. The journey began and an unexpected happened, it was so bad that the pilot could not communicate with the work station again. Now, they are on their own flying blind and in the thick dark cloud they flies, the cloud not so far to the firmament; the space and the stars, and even the world beyond.

The dawn of a new season, new phase, and new era is like a ship that all men have in common but to make a different, you have to be prepared to pay the price but there is no price to pay without a goal or something to pay for. You don’t want to be like sheep without a shepherd. Gather you family together if you have one and if you don`t do this likewise on your own, draw your goals in such a way that you will keep on checking if you are still on track as you move on in life, like they say charity begins at home – whatever happened in your life starts from you. If you want your family to work together more than before and get glued together in love, place a great value on them, learn how to plan together, if you want to stay happy or joyous as you move on in life, self check your growths and achievements.Be sincere to yourself, If you notice that there is no change yet, don`t panic. You can always check your goals carefully, maybe there is something that you are not doing right but if you discover that you have set a wrong goal, change it, there is nothing wrong about that; set something else as goals and remain focused on a purpose driven life!

Set goals for your businesses, set goals to start a new life, set goals on how to stop that bad habit, set goals on how to improve that good habit, it could be your strength, set goals of how to add to your community, set goals on how to make someone stay happy, set goals on how to be creative, set goals on how to stay happy, set goals on how to be mentally and emotional sound.

SET GOALS and SET GOALS! It works more than magic. IT MEANS THAT YOU ARE SET TO MAKE YOUR LIFE MUCH MORE EFFECTIVE!

…write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by… the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day.

Finally, brothers (friends and readers) whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Avoid flying blind in this new dawn, don`t live your life only to chance. Let purpose drives your life.

The Place of No Return

ENOUGH FOR THE WISE

It is not easy to dream, not to talk of birthing that dream. Dreamers are lonely, simply because they are the owner of the dream, if a dreamer chase that dream, soon others will follow suit. One of my past experiences, had made me believe that some people are just jealous of that ability and grace that God has bestowed on you and I will like to share it with you. I know that it will meet your need at an exact point in time that you needed this.

Some years ago, when I still coordinates a life performance drama on campuses in Nigeria. The event of one of the programs ended with a great lesson for me to learn at the point of tears after a glorious success.

At the same school where I graduated from, where I was one of the well known drama coordinators, where during our time, we were of them that are so deep into the gospel of our lord Jesus Christ. After two years of graduation, I and my crew returned to the school with a life performance drama, the plan had commenced and we were set to use the town hall of the community, we received the favor from the people of the town and publicity was about to begin, the student joint fellowship of that campus were informed, after all, I was part of such a group when I was a student there, but the coordinator of all campus’ drama unit informed others that they will not support the program because it was not in the name of the Joint drama unit so it was Anti-‘their name’ but I thank God it was not Anti-Christ.

The publicity were limited but we continued, the town was a small town that information could have spread easily. More than a hundred of student were in attendant, to us the program was a huge success, considering the late feedback that we received from General Christian Drama Coordinator of that campus, the arm that could have headed the publicity for Dramatic Revolution as the program was tagged but a sad news wounded my heart so greatly, a student hanged himself to death on that campus, for the first time in the history of that school. What made it worst for me was that the story of that act that day was all about hope. I strongly believe that if that student heard about the program, he will attend because every student loves such a show and if he attended, he will change his mind and could as well be alive today. A life was lost, just because of the ego of the drama coordinator then and after graduation he returned to being a normal student because being a drama coordinator then was just a campus thing not a total call from God but the occurrence taught me that there are a lot of people out there that are waiting for the grace that God as entrusted into my hand and I will keep chasing it, looking unto Jesus the author and the finisher of our faith.

If you are reading this and you at the cross road of motivation, I will like you to know that sometimes in life when you start something, some people will fight it and give you reason why you should stop, they might even spread bad rumors about you or they will go as far as attacking your dream based on your past. I wonder if there is any of those pointing fingers that can say that their present is crystal clear when it comes to plainness, not to talk of their past.

Stop fighting the war that is not yours, if God doesn’t call a man. Let him be his judge and if you are so sure (i.e God has spoken to you and not what men says) that that call is a fake, talk to such a fellow face to face instead of wasting your time in tarnishing his name. Such an attitude is a free ride to hell and the dangerous thing is that you don’t even know that you on that road to place of no return.

Matthew 7:3-5
New International Version (NIV)
3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

The essential style of true living is meeting needs, the world is so large that everyone of us living in it has a role or more to play to make it a better place.

Why wasting your time on starting big when it is clear enough to you that you don’t have resources needed to start large? Start small, start where you are! That gift that you are looking down on can be your guide to stadium. So start somehow, belief in yourself, remember to move in your own pace and never compare yourself with others but learn from others that are successful in that field. It is just a matter of time, the world will soon talk about you and they will patronize you.

Waging War

Hello friends, we just launched a prayer meeting that is called “Let Us Pray”. This prayer meetings encourage and make it easy for people to pray conveniently without the stress or the worries that they are no longer devoted to a praying life, these prayer section are led by sound believers from around the globe. Everyday we are making it simple, we are launching a spotify and soundcloud podcast very soon. This will make it easy to pray on the go, with either your earphone connected to your phones, ipads, computer or TV you are good to go, whether you are jogging, walking, driving, cooking or even at work, depending on what type of work you do, whatever your situation maybe, you are praying. This idea was inspired through my change in circumstance in 2008, I relocated from Nigeria to Finland, my life in Nigeria was, even though busy, I still have time to pray but I struggle to maintain a praying life as soon as I relocated to Finland, juggling between studies, travelling and work. It was not until I discover a new strategy to wage war that my prayer life restored. I pray everywhere that I go, ever ready and well connected with God. I stopped limiting my battle gear to a particular location, I was ready to wage war anytime, anyday and everywhere.

Ephesian 6:18 – NLT: “Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.

Prayer is a very important and a needed tool to overcome the battles of life or to sustain your life when things are working good for you, it should not be limited to when things are not working right. Even though prayer is very essential, sound instructions are the fuel of prayer. It makes you to know when and how to act, discern and pray, apply the principles from the word of God to battle in life.

Proverbs 4:7 stated; Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

Sometimes we get too overzealous with our christian faith to the extent that we do not bother to grow or check our growth. Imagine that you are a new born baby for a minute, as soon as you were born, milk or liquid food would be introduced to you, irrespective of how you are taking it, there comes a time that you have to outgrow liquid only meal, you have to advance to taking solid meals.

You do not just only pray to start a business, you must have a plan to actually start the business. You could pray for a great idea but you actually have to start working to have a great idea, you have to study, research to get inspired. At this point, I could imaging someone stating, “how about if I get revelation from God?” This is not how the principle of the spirit work, you do not get revelation from nothingness, revelations are born as a result of input. For example, you have to give your life to Jesus christ first, strike a relationship deal with God, get familiar and study his word. This point right here is an input which could result into revelation. The same principle is applicable to starting a business, choosing a course to study at school, chosen a career part and so on, you have to do your personal study and research to get it right. You can not just pray only and expect manner to fall from heaven, even the istrealite have to ask for manner before it falls because they were in a journey. Their journey was what qualified them to get manner fell from heaven. What is your journey? Have you started to embark on them? Even at the time the manner was falling for them.

When you pray and your prayer were answered, God expects you to do something great with your answered prayers, you can just sit down and keep asking. This is the altitude of most christians and this is actually one of the reasons it appears that we keep having unanswered prayers. In most cases, your prayer has already been answered, all you need is the wisdom to see their manifestation.

We won’t stop praying, neither should we stop creating, getting involved with our communities manufacturing problem solving ideas, building businesses, getting involved in our countries law making, actively involved in all spares of professions across the globe.

Shelah!

Musician Tools and strategy.

Collaboration is a very essential tool for all musicians, but there are good and bad way of going about it. Here are tips from a musician point of view.

What are the process for collaboration with that influencer that you desire to roll with, should be the first thing to address…

Please, feel free to leave me a feedback or your own opinion on this topic in the comment section, don’t forget to thumb up. Let me know why you feel this way too in the comment and please share this too, it will me a lot to me.

  1. Try to get the best possible means of contact to the artist.

You can contact some artist through their manager, some you can contact directly, some through someone that knows somebody that knows them. This depends on so many factors such as, how popular that particular artist is, some are easy to connect with and some are not. There are many factors that are responsible for this.

2. Don’t count on social media messaging or comment to get a reply from the artist you want to collaborate with.

From a personal point of view, this seems like easy move but it is totally so unlikely that you would get a reply. Why? As an artist, I may not be so popular but I know that my inbox is always busy, there are different kind of messages. Most of which, I don’t even bother to open because, think about it for a seconds. Opening messages is not my job description on social media and I have no time for that. Even, it is possible, make sure that you send messages to them through their business pages on social media and when you do, go atraight to your enquiries, avoid messages like Hi, hello etc. Any messages that look like you want to chat with them won’t do you any good.

3. Send a message to an official email of the artist that you want to feature.

I am assuming that you want to collaborate with an artist that will help your music go to the next level, this means that that artist must have an official email or contact somewhere, find it. This is one of the best ways, my personal experience is that, even if the didn’t reply you personally, the personal assistance or managing firm or manage are likely to. There is no particular method to this, you just have to keep on trying until you are able to achieve your plan.

4. Have as many options as possible.

Collaboration in music is very important, not only because an artist can influence your music popularity. but also because, it is good to have allies, people that you associate with or associate your creative work with matters. Develop your network by connecting with as many artists as you can.

5. Do it for a right reason.

A quick story, I had about an upcoming artist that invested in featuring a well known artist. He featured the artist, he spent on hosting his featured artist in Europe. This guy spent a lot of money and time but when it was time to do the music video, the well known artist became a ghost, after being paid a lot of money, after the enjoyment of the network of the upcoming artist. The upcoming artist just want an opportunity to reach the Africa market, for whatever reason this may be. This is my own personal belief and approach. The major reason why I would want to feature an artist will not only be because they can influence my creative works or make it popular but also to have them as friends or a sort of a close allies or mentors, adviser, encourager or even as guardian in this industry. Is this certain to happen someday? I will never know, unless I try. So try!

The Culture War.

Thinking recently and taking a look at how to react to culture that we don’t know or that we are not used to. As scary it might sometimes appear, it has a lot of advantages more than the disadvantage.

Personally and based on my experience, I think that diversity of culture makes the world go around and makes impact massive…

Kindly leave me your thoughts in the comment about this topic. What experience do you have with foreign culture? What do you think about it?

IN THE GOOD AND THE BAD

I hope that this will reach you just at right time you especially need it most, no matter what you are passing through at this moment, even in the midst of this broken world, God is able! Able to make all things alright,  beyond the ‘way out’ that you might have thought of, so that you can stand out in the midst of the ruins, to rebuild a new fresh full functioning life.

God_is_Able

The world as we know it could be so scary but also has abundant of good and hilarious happenings. The thought is, which one are you prepared to see? The good or the bad, God has it all in control.

Ephesians 3:19-21

” Finally people, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.”

Be rest assured that God is in total control of your life, so let go of yourself, give him total control, he is able to do that which seems impossible in your life, whatever it is, he has done it before and he will do it again. This time through you, for you and in you.
