ONE MORE LEAP

Like thunder jolts
The voice of the referee bolts
On your mark, get positioned, GO!
Athletes like wave, race towards the finish line
They move their fist ahead of them
Being propelled by the energy within

Phew! An athlete outruns the next
Then another and another and another
Steady and strong he seems
But for a while
Suddenly,his limbs fail him
As it is when a bowl is placed on a broomstick

In agony he groans
Leaning his mass on the earth beneath him
Seconds tick
As competitors seem to approach his spot
A spin of fear grasp his mind at the sight of another
Who seem to be ahead

In dogged determination
He supports his weight on his hand
Slowly but firmly, he pulls himself up again
Devoted to his dream
He continues the race

Getting ahead of the others
He stands less than a meter away from the finish line
His bones seem to crack
As his legs wobble underneath him

Like rushing waters
A flood of courage surges through him
In the might of a conqueror
He takes just one more leap
And he becomes the gold medalist!

Like swarms of flies
Everyone reaches for the Zenith in life
We start off well
Only to grow weary half way
If you would remind your self
That all mountains are surmountable
All oceans are cross able
Then, you would realize
That all dreams are achievable
If you would just take
ONE MORE LEAP!

7 THINGS YOU SHOULD NEVER DO AS A GUEST MINISTER (SINGER OR PREACHER)

I consider it a huge privilege to be God’s mouthpiece on earth. I pretty much like that I have to learn from Him and the capable others he has planted in my life while passing on this knowledge to others as He wills. Being His mouthpiece means I have to travel, meet people, and go to places are like or not like (yes sometimes you don’t feel like being somewhere).  This exposes me to a whole lot of information and helps me build valuable relationships. I’ve been a guest minister to many in the last twelve (12) years of my life. Pretty much since I was a teenager. I’ll like to share with you a few things I believe young people should never do when they are out as guest ministers.
1.Don’t  Isolate yourself from responsibilities There are times when the host might place you in their home or someone else’s rather than a hotel. Most young people tend to cross their legs and wait for breakfast in bed like the anointing would lift if they picked up a pin. When you’re placed in a home rather tha…

WHY DO “LOOSE” GIRLS MARRY FASTER?

“If this life has anything to gain at all, I’ll count it lost if I can’t hear you feel you, cause I need you…” rang my amazing ringtone by Lecrae. I picked up the sleek darling to see who misses me. It was this pretty friend of mine.
Ada (Not real name) and I met at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka in our first year. We had a lot in common and she was just my type (whatever that means) LOL. Anyway, I was (and still am) literally and figuratively in love with God and I noticed her heart was committed to God and His standards too.
Well, we graduated four years later and you know how life happens. We haven’t really kept in touch for a while. I heard sometime back that she was engaged and I called to say congratulations.  We talked about how life had been since after school and how we both are still fervently loving and serving the Lord. She said her wedding was three months away and I told her I definitely needed the aso-ebi (A uniform material sold to people who wish to attend an event).
