Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, let not the mighty man glory in his might, nor let the rich man glory in his riches; but let him who glories glory in this; that he understands and knows me- Jeremiah 23:24

Wherever I am in my life, is the perfect place for me to be; for every single decision and every single choice I have ever made has brought me to this very place; for here, there is something for me to learn. When time places obstacles in our path we have two choices-

Mama Bonboy sat in the crowd, her son moving up and down the hall. He looked very unkempt and devoid of maternal care. Her goods were sharply displayed before her. She had her daughter tightly strapped on her back. There, I remembered the trauma an African woman goes through in the hands of her husband's men even before giving birth to just one. And then, the care and upbringing required by the wards.

Years ago, I remember my home lesson teacher's assignment. The home lesson itself was a punishment, much more the assignment. This home lesson came not because I was "unbrilliant" but because I was practically stubborn- anyways, Nigerian kids are.
This day, Aunt Imi had me write in my lesson note:
"Write an essay on the topic: Nigeria, an empty giant of Africa."

I want a wife like Eve
Whom which was formed from my ribs
Her wholeness is enough to make me speak poetry
“The bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh”
The one worth waiting for.

Everytime, I carry a belief that it is what I give in that I get back. It simply implies that when I give all the necessary zeal, strength and dexterity into a thing, I get "all the desired results." Then I took to history, reading to find stories of persons whom this principle have worked for and I'm here with the "I can do it attitude."

History has the tales of experts who were convinced that the ideas, plans, and projects of others could never be achieved. However, the accomplishment of those same rejected projects, came to those who said, "I can make it happen."

I sometime ago, read the story of The Italian sculptor- Agostino d'Antonio who worked diligently on a large piece of marble. Unable to produce his desired masterpiece, he lamented, "I can do nothing with it." Other sculptors also worked on this difficult piece of marble, but to no avail.
After sometime, Michelangelo discovered the stone and visualized the possibilities in it. His "I-can-make-it-happen" attitude resulted in one of the world's wonderful masterpieces.
As you read this account under the magnificent lighting of your environment, from your mail, social media or blog as the case may be, consider that what you call an absurdity and waste of time could become an asset. You would find out that you can make it happen!

Today, I realise that I have gotten no near to the height God had aligned that I be but farther than where I dreamt to. The farther I go, I think I'm getting higher and everyone around me celebrates me too.

The problem is- I'm usually so lost in the high soundedness of my achievement that I do not realise where I should be in God's schedule...

The law of value

As I walked past the Oba Adesida Market Road in Akure, Ondo state, I got to meet some handicapped, begging. I moved further and saw a full grown, body abled man, begging for money. I dipped my hands into my wallet and got the worst, tattered Naira notes and gave it out to them. You know what? They accepted it with great ecstascy. Right there, they taught me value!
