Love is universal
Love is a language
Everyone can speak;
Whether you are strong or weak
Love is also a language
everyone can understand
Whether you are Jew or Greek.
With a foundation of love
You can always Stand out,
Stand firm, stand strong,
Stand the test of time.
Love is universal!
You are phenomenal and eternal-
Manifold and infinite in wisdom.
You were, He are, and You are to come.
Your greatness, no one can ever fathom.
Your kingdom, is an everlasting Kingdom.
Giver of life-abundant life, You’re life.
No Rock like You, our God; Sovereign God.
The Word of life,
You speak and it is done.
My God, Holy One,
Sweet Rose of Sharon-
The only-wise God, You’re three in One;
The Father, the Son and Spirit- one God.
The King of kings and the Lord of lords,
You’re everywhere and know everything.
You know the end from the beginning.

Give yourself a good start by
Opening your day with prayer
Open your heart and mind to God
Dedicate everything you do to God
Maintain a positive attitude all the time
Overcome every evil with good
Resist the devil in all his appearance
Never entertain failure or defeat
Institute clear boundaries to your life
Now inspire someone who is down
Give of yourself: talent, time or treasure

Anger Will Cost You
Anger will cost you.
It will imprison you
And throw the key away
It will make you its prey
And make you its slave
It will also rob you
of the peace God gave.
Anger will make you fly
Of the candle,
Change your colour and candour
red or green.
Anger will make you stumble
Blind you and steal your miracle
And put you in a great debacle.
Anger is next door to danger
And it puts “Thee” in front of it.
It blurs your vision
And aborts your mission
Even mortgaging your future.
Anger will make you speak out of turn
And will increasingly make you burn
Until you burn yourself and choke yourself.
Anger is an enemy
Come to steal your victory.
It is a vice not to have in your tool box.
Anger can even cut short your days
Make so mad that you go astray.
With anger, you can hardly pray
And it will surely mess up your day.
“So what do I do?”, you ask.
Forgive and live
God forgave you
You too can forgive.
Let go to let God
Do what Joseph did.
He forgave those who hated him and his dream.
He provided for them. He cared for them.
He comforted them.
When they plsy lower, you rise higher.
Pray for them, like Jesus did, “Father, forgive them. For they know not what they do.
Pray for them like Stephen,” Lord, lay not this sin to their charge.”
That is the way to go.
That is the way to win
That is the way to overcome, overtake
and brake free to see glory and joy unspeakable and full of glory.
6 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
27 Neither give place to the devil.
29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:1Pet3:10
1 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
9 Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.
60 And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.Acts7:60
34 [a]Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.”
Joseph Forgives His Brothers
15 Realizing that their father was dead, Joseph’s brothers said, “What if Joseph still bears a grudge against us and pays us back in full for all the wrong that we did to him?” 16 So they approached[a] Joseph, saying, “Your father gave this instruction before he died, 17 ‘Say to Joseph: I beg you, forgive the crime of your brothers and the wrong they did in harming you.’ Now therefore please forgive the crime of the servants of the God of your father.” Joseph wept when they spoke to him. 18 Then his brothers also wept,[b] fell down before him, and said, “We are here as your slaves.” 19 But Joseph said to them, “Do not be afraid! Am I in the place of God? 20 Even though you intended to do harm to me, God intended it for good, in order to preserve a numerous people, as he is doing today. 21 So have no fear; I myself will provide for you and your little ones.” In this way he reassured them, speaking kindly to them.
Your Love So Great
O Lord, Your love so great
That You emptied Yourself
To give me life and fullness
I’m so grateful, My God
O Lord, You Lit This Fire
To burn, shine bright for You
And as long as You give me breath
I’ll burn and burn for You
O Lord, You live in me
And so do I live in You
Nothing can ever separate us
Your love ever endures
Celebrate What Is Good
Celebrate What is Good
Focus not on the bad
What you celebrate comes to you.
What you focus on, you become.
Look for the good in others
Provoke them to do better
Be a good example to others
Be a good role model
Berate not others who are doing better than you.
Focus on yourself. You are not in competition with them.
Always work on yourself and work on being better than yesterday.
Aspire to go from glory to glory and from strength to strength.
Believe that All Things are possible to you.
Believe that if God is for you, no one can be against you.
Believe that you have the divine nature and all things are yours.
Believe that no weapon fashioned against you shall prosper.
Have positive role models that inspire to aim higher; people you and whom you can learn from.
But do not copy them. Be yourself. Know that you are unique, with a unique purpose, assignment and dream. Know that you have everything you need to succeed in life.
See yourself as an ambassador of God- here to give Him glory, represent Him in the best possible light and He has your back in all you do and wherever you go.
Have a healthy positive image of yourself. Do not undermine what God esteems.
Celebrate yourself. Thank God for all the abilities He has put in you. Develop them to the best of your ability and use them to serve God and humanity.
You are a masterpiece, fearfully and wonderfully made. You were made to add value to your generation. Seek for opportunities to serve and make a difference. Think more of others than yourself.
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy–meditate on these things. Phil4:8
We have the mind of Christ.
Renew your mind daily with the word of God. Think like He thinks. Speak as He speaks. Rom8:2
Know that although you are in this world, you do not belong to the world. Heaven is your home if your are born again. You were born to reign with Christ. So impact your world. John17:
You are the light of the world. So shine wherever you are and wherever you go. Let your light so shine that men will see your good works and glorify your father in heaven. Distinguish yourself and excel like Daniel in Babylon. Be excellent like Joseph in a foreign land. Be productive, professional, proficient and prolific like Paul, who disciplined himself so well that he gave a mammoth dividend for the gifting of God in his life, wring 13 best sellers, built many Churches, raised many leaders and forgot his past failures and achievements and pressed on for the mark of the of prize of his high-calling in Christ until fulfilled his vision with finesse.
Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.2Tim4:7-8
Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,
14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
You are a city on a hill that cannot be hidden. Glorify God in all your undertaking; in whatever you lay your hands to do. Be a leader in your chosen field. Shine your light so that others will see. Be a solution centre and a problem-solver. Bring light out of darkness. That is how you make a difference. Bring illumination in dark places. Dispel darkness with your light and life. Repay evil with good.
Know that there are angelic history assigned to watch over you and no weapon fashioned against you shall prosper. You are unconquerable, indomitable and unstoppable. All things are working together for you. The boundaries have fallen for your in pleasant places and you have a goodly heritage. Believe You will keep going from glory to glory and from strength to strength and from faith to faith.
Your pathway shall shine ever brighter to the full light of day. (Matt5:13-16, Rom12:21, Rom8:28, 2Cor:4:6, 7, Ps91:10,Ps34:10,Ps16:11)
6 For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
7 ¶ But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.
The Currency of Faith & the Strength of Love
The currency of Faith
Remains relevant – in fact
Essential in any walk of faith.
Without it you cannot engage
In any spiritual transaction
That will hold water.
That is why the just shall live by faith
And without faith, it is impossible to please God.
However, faith has a twin-love.
That is why faith works by love.
That is why love is the greatest.
So increase your faith by the Word of life you hear and increase your love by walking in love; walking as He walked;
talking as He talked, giving as He gave and seeing as He sees.
The Golden Sceptre of Grace
God will arise and shine on you.
Favour will arise and follow you.
The Glory of God will overshadowed you.
Goodness and mercy will follow you.
Your “Golden Sceptre” will be given to you.
God will smile at you.
The heavenly hosts have fought for you.
Joy unspeakable and full of glory is your due.
So now give thanks and put on your dancing shoes.
The music will soon play for you.
“And it was so, when the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, that she obtained favor in his sight: and the king held out to Esther the golden scepter that was in his hand. So Esther drew near, and touched the top of the scepter.”
