TGIF - Thank God It's Friday!

Hi, TGIF...

How has your week been? I hope the days after Valentine treated you fine?
Well, I had a busy week, school activities from Monday to Thursday (you know how it is). The fun part of my week was my department's 'Old School Day' and Cultural Day...there's a beach party today at Eket.

No matter how life has treated you; you can do nothing about the past, but you can do something about your future....starting from now.
Stand up, be bold, be strong. Take the whole responsibility on your own shoulders, and know that you are the creator of your own destiny. All the strength and succor you want is within yourself. Therefore, make your own future. There is no help for you outside of yourself; you are the creator of the universe. Like the silkworm you have built a cocoon around yourself... Burst your own cocoon and come out as the beautiful butterfly, as the free soul. Then alone you will see the truth.

New day, new beginnings. Lets all be positive, focused and strive towards our goals and do whatever (legit) it takes to archive them or get closer to them. Ensure that you make something count for this day to get to your destiny, even if its only efforts today but ultimately the results will prevail.

We are human. We are not perfect. We are alive. We try things. We make mistakes. We stumble. We fall. We get hurt. BUT...We rise again. We try again. We keep learning. We keep growing. And... We are thankful for this priceless opportunity called life. And I personally "Thank God I'm Fabulous!"

Dealing With Depression

The dictionary describes depression as a condition of general emotional dejection and withdrawal, sadness greater and more prolonged than that warranted by any objective reason.

Life is full of twists and turns, some pleasant, others not so pleasant or at times dreadful. No one is devoid of problems in their lives. Everyone has their own personal set of problems.

Even the people who have a smile constantly on their face have problems. The only difference is they know how to tackle the problems of their life and smile about the fact that they can overcome those problems.

Getting into depression is a normal phenomenon, but letting it over take us completely is not the best thing. There are no specific rules or a concepts to deal with it, whatever way one feels is the best way, one should adopt to tackle it...not suicide o!

Homemade Coconut Oil: Easy Steps

Coconut oil has been proven by many (including my grandmothers) to be useful in different ways. Coconut oil is widely used by many, it can be used both internally and externally. Coconut oil helps moisturize your baby's tender skin, and prevents diaper rash. It can also be used on pets like dogs, yes! It helps fight lice plus other skin issues, and leaves your dog smelling nice. It fights cough and cold when taken internally.

Because of its crave by many, makes it cost quite a bit. I prefer the homemade Coconut oil because it is natural and doesn't have to pass through chemical filtration and distillation.lol

Here's how I make mine

Abiding in God's Presence!

Ok, I'm not an ordained preacher so not here to preach but, the bible says "we are all called by His name", isn't it? I was really blessed and elated during and after hearing the teaching of God's servant David Ibiyeomie today in service, the message was titled ABIDING IN GOD'S PRESENCE.

The teaching was centered on Fellowship. He explained fellowship as an association of people who share common beliefs and values... He went further to explain that, you cannot stand alone no matter how anointed you are. You need your brothers and sisters because there are some problems you alone cannot handle, you need the forces of others (in prayers) to overcome such problem.

He admonished members to belong to a House Fellowship as that is where members get to know and cater for each other.
God believes in the power of togetherness. Judges 18:7,10, 27 & 28
Jdg 18:7 So the five men departed and went to Laish. They saw the people who were there, how they dwelt safely, in the manner of the Sidonians, quiet and secure. There were no rulers in the land who might put them to shame for anything. They were far from the Sidonians, and they had no ties with anyone. 
Jdg 18:10 "When you go, you will come to a secure people and a large land. For God has given it into your hands, a place where there is no lack of anything that is on the earth." 
Jdg 18:27 So they took the things Micah had made, and the priest who had belonged to him, and went to Laish, to a people who were q uiet and secure; and they struck them with the edge of the sword and burned the city with fire.

Jdg 18:28 There was no deliverer, because it was far from Sidon, and they had no ties with anyone. It was in the valley that belongs to Beth Rehob. So they rebuilt the city and dwelt there." 
These people believed they were secured...

2nd Samuel 6:10-12 explains the benefits of establishing a Home Cell fellowship in your house and belonging to one.
2Sa 6:10 So David would not move the ark of the Lord with him into the City of David; but David took it aside into the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite.

2Sa 6:11 The ark of the LORD remained in the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite three months. And the LORD blessed Obed-Edom and all his household.

2Sa 6:12 And it was told King David, saying, "The LORD has blessed the house of Obed-Edom and all that belongs to him, because of the ark of God." So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obed-Edom to the City of David with gladness.

It then means that we need people around us at some points in our lives for no one is an island.
Fellowshipping in the house of God makes us flourish in every area of life... Psalm 92:13

Let us not be too busy to fellowship with our brothers and sisters...it's a minimum of one hour a week and you are back to your businesses. Do not be Judas' elder brother (lol) who was in the folk but betrayed Jesus Christ... I'm trying to say that Sunday service is not enough, the church is all about worshipping God and associating with people. Do not say you don't need people around you; my dear, the truth is YOU DO. Listen to Pastor David Ibiyeomie's teachings on Salvation Radioand also watchhim teach live. Get inspired! God bless you.
