ARE YOU A VICTIM OF THESE LIFE RAKERS?

I sat recently and my heart reviewed The Birthplace journey of 9 years. I guess I’m probably supposed to be excited about the privilege given me as an echo of God’s voice in my generation. Even though a part of me was and is truly grateful for being chosen, a huge question lurked at the corner of my heart- Has the 9 years of labour been truly acceptable by the father? Have I done all/what is written of me in the volume of books within this time?
My heart became full as I compared the assignment, the instruction with the journey so far. I agree I have never turned down any of father’s instruction concerning The Birthplace mandate as much as I can remember. However, I couldn’t shake off the concern in my heart which said, “Am I within schedule, am I doing it right? Am I? Am I? I began to tongue (Pray in the Spirit). My heart was seeking answers. I needed to be sure that as we approached 10 years of age next year, I will be right in the centre of the father’s will in every sense of the wor…

MASTERING THE ART OF FOCUS

You landed at the office at past 9 having missed the presentation scheduled for 8:15am…
Was the accident worth your empathy? YES Was your presentation important? YES

7 SHADES OF FOLLY

Have you ever stopped in the middle of a sentence because you felt you’ve just said something awkward? (Laughs) I’ve been there and trust me there are more awkward moments when you wish you could literally enter the ground. Folly means different things to different people. To one person, it is spending money on something you never would use, to another it is responding to a question before it is completely asked and to some other person, it could be constantly making wrong decisions. I often hear people say one is foolish when he/she fails to display “common sense” in a matter.  The same people eventually admit that “common sense is not common at all”.  (Laughs) You see, folly isn’t often obvious at first until the repercussion of our action takes its toll on us.  This is why I have put this piece together to help us (you and I) watch out for “folly” so we can rather walk in wisdom.
So below are the various shades of folly. 1.DENIAL: The act of asserting that something or a statement is not…
