TIME, MEMORIES AND OPPORTUNITIES

BY TOBI WHITE

Time flies and memories fade. People change and new friendships are made. Only the truth remains forever at our side. Eventually, the disappointment and pain will subside.
It is all about the journey and what has yet to come. Life is what you make of it; you are what you’ve become. Life is too short to hold onto regrets. Forgiveness is key even though you may never forget.
Cherish the good and remove the bad. Some people don’t realize till it’s gone what they’ve had. Moving on is a way of life. There will always be obstacles, pain, and strife.
You must believe that you are strong enough to fight. You have to believe in yourself to do what is right. Always do for YOU no matter what you do, Because, in the end, the only one who has your back is you.
Never be afraid to take a stand,And always be willing to lend a helping hand. A little bit goes a long way. All it takes is a smile to brighten someone’s day.
Your chance to live is now, so what are you waiting for? The world is yours for the taking and so much more. Endless possibilities are forever at your disposal. The chance to live another day is life’s golden proposal.
Never let anyone tear you down, And never let anyone steal your shine and make you frown. So will you sit in the shadows and let darkness win again? Or will you rise up and make the light your friend?
Here is your chance, so what will you do? You’ve got this because I believe in you!

The Ancient Seed

By Ashade Gabriel

Edited by Patience Brown
There was a certain young man who had in the possession seeds that could make him the richest man in the world, but he was the poorest being ever. 
He was poor because these seeds were kept in an ancient bottle- which he inherited from his father. His father also inherited it from his grandfather, who inherited it from his great grandfather. . .
The seeds had been passing from one generation to another without their knowledge of its usefulness. They simply left them in the bottle. 
But on that bottle was a quote which read: “Only the rich have these seeds. Use them well. And pass to the next generation”
The past generations failed to decipher the quote. They only understood “Pass it to the next generation” So they did. So they continued doing. 
But this young man got curious about the quote on the bottle. And he decided to try what no one in his generation had tried: he took one seed and planted it. 
As it began to grow, he would nurture it. He would take care of it. Patiently, he labored over the young plant. 
That one seed grew into a mighty tree with fruits. So many fruits! Every fruit contained a seed. The fruits were very peculiar and he realized that they were well-sought after people had thought that the fruit had gone extinct.
So they paid him for the fruits. From far and near, people came for the fruits. 
In time, he learned to properly package the fruits and export them to faraway lands
Truly, the fruits from just a seed made him rich!
He packaged more of the seeds in bottles and kept them safe for his generations to come but this time he wrote on the bottle: “These seeds have great potential. Plant it. Nurture it. Take care of it. And you will reap its potential”
This teaches us that in each of us lies potential! Potential that could serve humanity. But it needs to be identified, planted, nurtured. .and the harvest will come.

DON’T KNOCK; TURN THE KNOB

By Eunice Adeola (SPA)

Omadang, as usual was late that day. He went straight to the door and knocked on it. When no one answered him, he concluded that his friend was fast asleep. However, he renewed his strength, and kept knocking.

The loud bang on the door jerked Kolabomi awake. With the webs of sleep still in his eyes, Kolabomi, who had slept for 10 hours dragged himself lazily from the mat with its lines beautifully drawn on his cheeks to check whom it was.

As he peeped through the rat-made hole on the wooden door, he saw Omadang. In deep annoyance, he muttered and turned the knob only to find the door unlocked.

He lacked the right words to package the perfect insult that he’ll bestow Omadang for his obvious stupidity. He gave Omadang a look of disgust, and left him there to complete his 12-hours marathon sleep that was annoyingly disrupted.

Omadang had wasted his time outside for no reason. If only he had not assumed that the door was locked, he would have saved himself the stress of knocking. In the same vein, he wouldn’t have disturbed his friend’s sleep.

Most times, in life, we waste too much time knocking at the door, when we could have simply stretched forth to turn the knob.

If you don’t want to stay outside for too long, turn the knob.

If you don’t want to waste people’s time and resources, turn the knob.

Knocking might be polite and good, but turning the knob is way better. This is because that door of opportunity which you assume is locked might only be slightly closed.

What are you waiting for? Turn the knob today!

Consider your History

BY TOBIWHITE

On one occasion, the disciples were in a boat.
Just a few hours before, they had seen Jesus bless and feed some fifteen thousand people with five loaves of bread and two fishes.

At the end of that day, He told the disciples to gather up the leftovers, get in the boat, and cross to the other side of the lake.
Now, it was the middle of the night, strong winds suddenly swept down on the lake, and the waves were very high.
The disciples were concerned for their safety. Then, they saw someone walking on water. At first, they thought he was a ghost. They finally recognized him and invited him into their boat. The winds and waves calmed down immediately, they were relieved.

But the scriptures gives us insight into why they were so worried. It says, “They didn’t consider the miracle of the loaves.” They were so stressed out by the nighttime storm and high waves that they forgot how earlier that day they had seen with their own eyes one of the greatest miracles ever recorded.

If they had just remembered the miracle, they would have stayed in faith.

What’s interesting is that they were out on the lake because they had been obedient, they had done what Jesus asked. . .
Where they missed it was their not remembering what God has done.

Are you doing what they did? Are you letting your circumstances cause you to live worried or stressed out?
Why don’t you start considering your miracles?
Look back over your life, remember the time God showed up and suddenly turned it around. Look on your walls and relive some of those mountable things God has done

THE WORLD OF MAYBE

BY FAMUTIMI ELIZABETH

Maybe….. we are supposed to meet the wrong person before meeting the right one so that, when we finally meet the right person, we would be grateful for the gift.

Maybe….. the happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the most of everything that comes their way.

Maybe….. we are meant to pass through some challenges since nothing good comes easy.

Maybe….. the brightest future will always be based on the forgotten past. After all, you can only be successful in life until you let go of your past, mistakes, and heartaches.

Maybe….. the best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never saying a word and then walk away feeling like the best conversation you have ever heard.

Maybe….. seeing is believing because of trust issues.

Maybe…..  in life, we shouldn’t be too kind so as not to be full of regrets at the end.

Maybe….. we are supposed to learn the lesson the hard way so that we can wake up from our slumber.

Maybe….. you should try to put yourself in other’s shoes. If you feel that something we hurt you, it probably hurt them too.

Maybe….. you should do something nice for someone every single day…even if it’s simply to leave them alone.

Maybe….. happiness waits for those who cry, all those who have been hurt, all those who have searched and all those who have tried, for only them can appreciate the importance of all those who have touched their lives.

Maybe….just maybe you should hope for enough happiness to make you smile, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human and enough hope to make you happy.

Maybe….you should learn to let go of things, forgive easily because refusing to forgive by holding on to the anger, resentment and a sense of betrayal can make your own life miserable.

So!!! Welcome to life disappointment guaranteed!!! But no matter what form of disappointment it is, there is absolutely nothing so bad that cannot be forgiven…Nothing!!!

Olowogbogboro by Abigail Adeyosola

Olowogbogboro!

I opened my eyes to a wonderful view of nature,
Admiring the peaceful activities of so many creatures,
With nice product of this fertile land and it’s environmental structure.
The maker I call “Olowogbogboro”,
His outstretched arm to make life beautiful.

Times and seasons with it’s effect on earthly beings,
Reccurring subsequently for a particular time been.
Spring,summer,autumn,and winter they be.
All in power of “Olowogbogboro”,
His outstretched arm to change circumstances.

Even when I’m lost in the stench of this world,
And just there with feelings like a wode,
Confessing and believing for cleansing through His word.
The ever present One, “Olowogbogboro”,
His outstretched arm to set free.

Trials and tribulations would bring fear,
Drowning in anxiety, almost to the point of death.
My “Oba to to ni gba” is always there to save,
when He is called in faith.
Olowogbogboro!
My God, able to put null to terrible situations,
Bringing calmness to storms of life.
