Only 300? - My Birthday Gift

I just listened to a message about Gideon and his army of 300 soldiers. Somehow, I was hearing something else in my Spirit (got a new understanding, saw in a new light).
The 9,700 soldiers that failed God's test can be those who in Nigeria now have seen a semblance of peace and stability. And have thrown away their PEN and indulged themselves with 'enjoying' the moment. Those are not part of this movement.
Why did God choose that few? Out of 32,000 soldiers! He wanted all the glory for Himself, and wants to make it hard for Israelis to take the glory for themselves. Hence, they would have said 'the size of our army helped us' instead of acknowledging God.
Now, the second group by the river who passed are the members of this group. We acknowledge what is going on in our country now, but we still have our hand on our weapons 'PEN' while using the other hand to take up the water, still conscious that the enemy 'corruption, greed, selfishness, and the like' is still at large in the minds of the leadership and citizens of our country.
We are the ones God will use to break the hold of the midianites 'corrupt leaders a.k.a Cabal & Sons, Nigeria Ltd', 'When-I-get-there-I-will-do-my-own Company' on the soul of Nigeria.
I say to you just like Gideon told the 32,000-strong army, if you are fearful or afraid or unsure, please leave the group. You can encourage and support us in your mind, it will still be ok. If you look at your actions the past couple of weeks, you will know if you have 'put your head into the water with reckless abandon' or you have 'dipped one hand in the water with the other hand on your PEN'.
My encouragement, let us put our trust in God and pray for the leadership of this group so that they will receive with accuracy, the next phase in the journey of reclamation of the soul of our Great Country - Nigeria.

God Bless you all,
God Bless Nigeria
This is my Birthday's gift to my Country! (April 21, 2011)

Forgiveness 2.0 – Can you go back?

Forgiveness, just like Love, has definitions to varying degrees or like an onion—layers. I always thought I had the forgiveness thing locked down, yeah right! Just like the proverbial out of the blue, it hit me that I had just erased that part from memory and decided the type of forgiveness I wanted to extend. I found out that I couldn’t (or at least that’s what I had subconsciously agreed) go back if I had the chance. On my way home, it became evident that this sealed can of worms had been in the basement and it is already stinking. It took an interviewer’s probing questions for me to shed light on that chapter in my life’s story. Forgiveness is absolute, but just like everything else, we make it relative and as such varying standards abound. This means what I call forgiveness may not cut it for someone else. While my version of forgiveness may be shallow and warped, yours may be brutally honest. Ultimately, we are responsible for our versions of forgiveness, while it is in our best


I want to tell you a story, and in the next couple of minutes, I would appreciate if you could loan me your undivided attention. I promise to return it with interest; A child was born in an urban area in the heart of Lagos state almost 3 decades ago, attended about 5 primary schools, finally obtained a first school leaving certificate, from there on to just 1 secondary school, being a very brilliant and apt student, he obtained the necessary 5 O'Level credits in senior school certificate exams and got an average score in the university and tertiary matriculations exam. He got admitted to study Physics because they just had to put him somewhere because he knows somebody who knows somebody. Even though in his heart, he wanted to study Electronics and Computer Engineering because that's where his strength is, mechanization and electronics. The result? Instead of the standard 4 years, he ended up spending 8 years and still did not graduate. For those wondering how come, here

LIFE 101

Most of the years we spend within the four walls of the school environment were spent learning theories of how things work. How to analyze, solve problems given a few clues [symptoms], calculate, and read. However, when we finally leave the confines of those walls; we discover that we have spend one-third of our lives not preparing for the present simply because the school curriculum does not make provision for people-skills, time-management, emotional intelligence, entrepreneurship, financial intelligence, et al. We start school afresh once we step into the real world and the courses are very systematic because we take the examinations first, then the lesson; the direct opposite of the school we have been used to. Life is more that just a set of classes and some library of books, far bigger than what we have been made to believe. Great men/women of the world had just one thing in common; we never hear of their academic excellence- rather, we hear of what they did outside the w
