How can I live without you?

I hear you call
Not out here but within
A call that breaks the hold
Of loneliness in me.

I want to view your face again
And feel your warmth embrace
I want to inhale your breath
And watch my mirrored self unfold.

I hear you call my name
Your charming voice enchants
Invoking the ghost of a child listening
It’s ceaseless flow impels

I want to hear your voice again
I want to see your face again
I want to feel your touch again
But how can I when you’re no more?

Happily ever after!

Just something to get us started for the day!

Be happy right now!
Isn’t that amazingly easy to say? How can I be happy when all isn’t working well? Well you can’t always have everything but you can force a smile on your face whenever, right?

It’s always good to keep a radiant and happy face amigo! Like the song in Frozen! Let it go 

Smile always and give your face a change

Happiness is not in the future, happiness is now, spend quality time with the one you love, give your biggest energy to things that can not be spent
Make friends purposely

Not everyone should be your friend

Have friends that spur you into good works, motivate you and make you better.

Work on yourself till the point that your presence in anyone’s life is seen as God’s gift.

Don’t dream about making millions, dream about making millionaires. Don’t dream about building mansions, dream about building people.

Finally, as much as possible, let the gospel be your flag, preach the gospel lavishly.

Dream big for the gospel

Purpose makes you ambitious for a better course. Christ is you’re purpose. When you focus on eternal things (things that can’t be spent), you’d never see reasons to frown or be unhappy.

To live is Christ, to die is gain

Selah!

What every mother needs to know.

HOW TO INSPIRE MANNERS IN YOUR CHILDREN.

Before I start, let me make one thing clear, training a child isn’t solely the responsibility of a mother. However, most children tend to cling closer to their mother than their fathers. This is why this write-up centers on  mothers mainly. Though it a lesson for all gender.

1. When entering the house greet your children or even hug them. This should help develop their sense of love and self worth. Also it shows that you acknowledge them and that you’re glad to have them in your life and home.

2. Be good to your neighbours and never backbite. Never speak ill of other drivers when on the road. Your children would listen, absorb and emulate, children learn faster through what they hear and see.

3. When calling your parents, encourage your children to speak to them. When visiting your parents take your children with you. The more they see you take care of your parents the more they will learn to take care of you.

4. When driving them to school, don’t always play albums or cds in the car. Rather, tell them some motivational stories yourself. This will have a greater impact – trust me! Most times children just want to hear you talk, the stories might be pointless or boring, but they appreciate that more than watching SpongeBob.

5. Read to them a short story and even a scripture a day – it doesn’t take much time, but very impactful in creating strong bonds and wonderful memories. My kid brother still remembers a story I once told him, and I don’t even remember telling it.

6.  Comb your hair, clean your teeth and wear presentable cloths even if sitting at home and not going out for the day. They need to learn that being clean and tidy has nothing to do with going out!

7.Try not to blame or comment on every word or action they say or do. Learn to overlook and let go sometimes. As humans we feel bad when our mistakes are pointed out to us, kids feel same. I not saying a mother should not point out her child’s mistake, but it should be done in the most friendly way. This certainly builds their self-confidence.

8. Ask your children’s permission before entering their rooms. Don’t just knock and enter, but then wait for a verbal permission. They will learn to do the same when wanting to enter your room.

9. Apologize to your children if you made a mistake. Apologizing teaches them to be humble and polite.

10. Don’t be sarcastic or make fun of their views or feelings, even if you “didn’t mean it” and was “only joking”. It really hurts.

11. Show respect to your children’s privacy. Its important for their sense of value and self-esteem. When you want to use their stuff, even if you bought it for them, ask for their permission.

12. Don’t expect that they will listen or understand the first time. Don’t take it personal, be patient and consistent. Kids are messy and they learn gradually, don’t expect them to do it right or obey the command you gave yesterday, expect them to do it wrong and don’t get tired of reminding them of what’s right. Overtime, they’d learn.

13.Pray with them. Show them how to pray. Go to service with them and let them know you’re serious about these things.

14. In addition, ask them to discuss their daily plans after the morning prayers. Children without concrete daily plans  usually join others in executing theirs. They fall easy to peer pressure.

15. Hold them and bless them specially every morning. Thank them when they do something good, encourage them when you see them trying.

16. Finally, don’t lie to your children. Good, bad, ugly or worse, tell them the truth. They’d appreciate the truth than the lie. They may feel bad about the truth but they trust you’d never lie to them.

Have fun raising good kids 😁

My Saviour’s Joy

There are tears in the losts’ eyes;
Long weary hours of confusion, distrust and pain;
Praying someday God would love them again;
Waiting for a revival, but waiting in vain;
There are tears in the losts’ eyes.

There are tears in the unbelievers’ eyes;
Lack of understanding binding heart, hand and feet;
Broken with shame at his unbelieve and defeat;
Hot burning tears coursing down his cheek;
There are tears in the unbelievers’ eyes.

There are tears in the self righteous’ eyes;
Tears of no assurance, discouragement and ill;
Fear of being misled and acting out of his will;
Fear of eternal death and prayers that the spirit fill;
There are tears in the self righteous’ eyes.

There are tears in the atheists’ eyes;
Boldly proclaiming there is no God;
Bringing up theories to replace the sovereign Lord;
Wedging self war against the only true God;
There are tears in the atheists’ eyes.

There are tears in the Satanists’ eyes;
Calling to idols of wood and stone;
Calling in vain, Christ the saviour unknown;
Comfortless, helpless, without peace and alone;
There are tears in the Satanists’ eyes.

There are tears in the ministers’ eyes;
Misunderstood the gospel he should know;
No love is felt, nor compassion bestow;
Fainting, discouraged and hope burning low;
There are tears in the ministers’ eyes.

But there is joy in the Saviour’s eyes;
Joy unspeakable full of glory and grace;
Joy that calls to all, ‘my love come to my embrace’;
Joy that brings the lost to rejoicing and praise;
There is joy in the Saviour’s eyes.

A Friend indeed

If I tell correctly
All that I shall one day have to tell
Who then would hear me without laughing?
Sad and troubling pains of regret
Who indeed will hear me without laughing?

If I cry loudly of my torments
Ever increasing from the start of things,
What eyes would watch my large mouth?
Cry from the results of my folly
What eyes would watch my large mouth?

If I appeal audibly to the society
What heart will listen to my clamouring?
What ear to my pitiful anger?
Growing in me like a tumor,
Destroying me in my silence.


If they heard of my demise,
All they might ever say is,
The weak and clumsy commits suicide,
We see nothing of what they’ve made,
In the air, on the water, and on the land.

And since they did not hear me without laughing,
Since they did not understand my torments,
Since they never listened to my cries,
Since their eyes wouldn’t watch my large mouth,
Since they did not listen to my clamouring.


I look to him who calls me his own,A friend that hears me without laughing,
An eye to watch my large mouth,
A heart that listens to my clamouring,
A saviour that heals my sobbing heart,
To him alone, my troubles lay.

Eternal peace

Peace unto the saints, with a joyful song. Peace to all who believes, our Saviour is risen.

Sing with everlasting joy, Christ the saviour saved us all, peace forever in our heart.

This is how he loved, by giving his only son, paying for our trespasses, all for free he gave, if any one believes, everlasting life he receives.

Join the joyful saints, believe the father saves, through the son alone, celebration everyday. Peace within, rest about, peace amongst all who believes in Christ Jesus our Saviour.

Glory Glory Glory

God and man unites!

Greed or Risk?

Welcome

Glad to know you are here!

Zubi’s Blog is alive because you read😁


Today we’d be discussing about risk, greed and surviving In a business environment.

There’s a huge Difference Between “Risk”And “Greed”.


Sometimes People Do Stupid Things And They Tag It As “Risk” When Actually It’s “Greed” Irrespective Of The Motives Behind It, Whether Positive/Negative.

Most People Don’t Know What “Business Risk” Actually Means.
It’s Not Just About Having Money To Invest. It’s Not Just About Doing Daring Things.


I’ve Seen This Folly Most Especially From People With No Job/Little Income Earners.

What Is Risk?
A Controlled Uncertainty.
The Outcome Could Either Be A Profit/Loss, But Most Especially It Should Be A Controlled One.


Types Of Risk
1. Controlled Risk
2. Ridiculous Risk


Ridiculous Risk Is Such Where All Factors Are Not Considered. It’s A One-way Thinking. You Think Only About The Profits.
During My Final Year, We Were Taught Operational Research (OR). This Actually Prepares You To Be Not Just A Logical Thinker, But A Critical One. You Have To Be Critical In Your Thinking. I Have Taken Out My Time To Do The Maths For You.
It’s Actually Testing Yourself On The Subject Of “Risk Taking”.

Controlled Risk is such where all factors are considered. It involves thinking critically and not one way.

Myths of finding a mate

Myth 1- There’s one special person for me

There isn’t a special person for you. However, you have been given the privilege to choose a mate that shares your values and beliefs, accepts, love and respects you.

The process of dating is where you get to understand your mate and know the things you can deal with and the things your can’t cope with. I would also emphasis on the fact that you cannot change a person, not until he/she sees the need for a change (Quit nagging and complaining, you’d only make the situation worse). If he or she isn’t a person you can live with, look for someone else. Break ups can be an option but not divorce.

DIVORCE IS NEVER AN OPTION

Myth 2- God chooses one person for me

This is one of the reasons why we have broken families, because some people have believed that God has already made a choice of husband so any man who has a tuxedo and looks like a Christian must be God’s choice.

While courting, you observed certain things about your mate that you didn’t like and knew you couldn’t live with, still you continued because you were told or you believed it was God telling you to marry that person (like the Case of Prophet Hosea right?). I’m not saying God does give us ideas of who to marry, he does but that would be when we ask that he directs us.

God doesn’t choose a mate for us, he might give you an idea of an ideal mate but not a mandatory choice, the choose of who to marry is always ours to make.

Finally, the key to finding the right mate is first to identify the qualities and characters that you hold as your standard without compromising. After that, evaluate the potential candidates you meet according to those standards.

Stay blessed!

Happy Valentine’s Day

What really is Valentine about?

As a teenage, I wondered what Valentine was about, no one in my house really bothered about Valentine neither did I, until my classmates and friends in school brought it up every February 14th.

It has always been like a craze amongst so many people and the sad thing is, many don’t even know what Valentine is about, everyone with their different story of what Valentine is and should be.

Today, we would be destroying that ignorance.

It’s uncertain where Valentine’s Day started, however it is believed that it started with the reign of St Valentine, a Roman priest who was martyred on or around February 14 in the year 270 CE. How he became the patron saint of lovers remains a mystery but one theory is that the church used the day of St Valentine’s martyrdom to Christianize the old Roman Lupercalia, a pagan festival held around the middle of February.

The ancient ceremony included putting girls’ names in a box and letting the boys draw them out. A male and female will then be paired together until the following year.  The Christian church substituted saints’ names for girls’ names in hope that the participant would model his life after the saint whose name he drew. However, it was once again girls’ names that ended up in the box by the 16th century.

Moreover, on the long run, the custom of sending anonymous cards and messages to those whom one admires became the accepted way of celebrating Valentine’s Day.

Afterwards, an increase in people’s interest in Valentine’s Day was evident, first in the United States and then in Canada, in the mid-19th century. Prior to this, the business world got interested in Valentine’s Day and started early versions of Valentine cards fashioned of satin and lace and ornamented with flowers, ribbons, and images of cupids or birds appeared in England in the 1880s.

Today, many people around the world celebrate Valentine’s Day by showing appreciation for the people they love or adore. Some people take their loved ones for a romantic dinner at a restaurant while others may choose this day to propose or get married. Many people give greeting cards, chocolates, jewelry or flowers, particularly roses, to their partners or admirers on Valentine’s Day.

It is also a time to appreciate friends in some social circles and cultures. For example, Valentine’s Day in Finland refers to “Friend’s day”, which is more about remembering all friends rather than focusing solely on romance. Valentine’s Day in Guatemala is known as Day of Love and Friendship). It is similar to Valentine’s Day customs and traditions countries such as the United States but it is also a time for many to show their appreciation for their friends.

Traditionally, people present gifts such as flowers with roses, items with colors of red and pink, roses, images and statues of cupids, and cupids’ bows and arrows symbolize the feeling of romance and love on Valentine’s Day. Cupid is usually portrayed as a small winged figure with a bow and arrow. In mythology, he uses his arrow to strike the hearts of people. People who fall in love are sometimes said to be “struck by Cupid’s arrow”. The day focuses on love, romance, appreciation and friendship.

Valentine’s Day is an amazing day. Knowing about Valentine’s Day gives it more meaning to it.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Lots of love from Zubi’s blog
