What you think (Be inspired today 294 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

What you think matters;
Beware what you think;
It can make or break you;
And there are only two ways
Of thinking:
Negatively or positively;
Each brings results
Equal to its nature;
If your thinking is positive,
It produces positive results;
If your thinking is negative,
It produces negative results.
Reason why I say:
Beware what you think.
So important, indeed,
What you think.

Guard your mouth (Be inspired today 137 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

Though you have a voice
That charms many,
Though you have a most
Melodious voice;
Though you talk more
Than the sweetest of all
Talking birds,
Talking too much,
Talking like a parrot,
Talking nonstop,
Is detrimental to you;
You may be tempted
To say things
You should not say;
You may contradict yourself;
You may land in trouble.
My advice, therefore is
Watch your words;
Guard your mouth;
Let your mouth not run you
Into any trouble.
You must not let words
Flow out of your mouth
Like running water.

Beware a Cup that’s Full

When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.

And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar–jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.

From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.

But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
Matthew 16:13‭-‬14‭, ‬16‭-‬23 KJV

Immediately Peter had been commended and exalted by Jesus. He thought he had become “the man” of the moment, he must have thought to have known it all not knowing that the devil was waiting patiently for him to use him.

You recall Peter also did similar thing when Jesus told him that he’d deny Him three times before the rooster crows. But thank God for Jesus, He had already prayed ahead for him.

Just like Peter we can easily be carried away by so many things, we shouldn’t be so full of ourselves with any slight opportunity, success that comes our way, neither by fame or status. We shouldn’t let our achievements get to us.

Let us learn from the experiences of Peter and be careful to handle a cup that’s full so as not to fall prey to the devil because he prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for whom to devour.

A cup that’s full can be liken to someone who is in a position of power and authority, someone who has attain some level of achievement or success.

People like King Saul, Samson and Judas Iscariot are example of Bible characters who didn’t fulfill God’s purpose for their lives just because they were not mindful of a cup that’s full.

We should have at the back of our mind that the mishandling of such cup can cause an irreparable damage thereby bringing a person from grace to grass.

With this, we should beware of a cup that’s full and handle it with utmost caution and humility.

Many thanks for stopping by, until next time..

Don’t be deceived

Do not be deceived
By beauty;
A beautiful woman
Can be dangerous;
Do not be deceived
By the good taste
Of good wine;
It can be dangerous;
Let the flavour
Of good food
Not carry you away;
The sweetest things
Have their dangerous side;
On the other side
Of electricity
Like that of air and water
Is danger.
Don’t be deceived.

A strongly worded letter on Temptation

Dear lovely people of the world,
Are you aware of how dangerous Temptation is?
Are you aware of the immensity
Of destruction
That this fellow has caused
In the world?
Do you know
That the world would have been
A far better place for all
Without Temptation?
Please, beware of Temptation!
Wherever you are, and whoever you are,
If you see temptation approaching,
Take flight;
Take to your heels;
Run for your dear life;
Temptation never moves
Without a secret agenda;
And his agenda is always,
And I mean always,
A destructive agenda;
Temptation is thirsty to destroy;
To pull down.
Beware my friend,!
Beware of Temptation;
Temptation is not to be trusted.

Seek to be your best

Seek not to be the best; You will never be; Always there will be someone Known or unknown, Who will be better than you; And seeking to be the best, May leave you frustrated. Seek instead, everyday, To be your best; And put in all your effort; Worry not whether or not You get the results you desire; It’s for God to decide; And to each one, a plan; A mission; A destiny, Which no one can derail Obstruct or permanently block.

Don’t do it!

If you know a thing is wrong
Don’t do it;
If you know it is evil,
Don’t do it;
And what you must know,
An evil thing is
An evil thing;
A crime is a crime;
No matter how small;
A crime is an evil thing;
Trouble that calls for
More trouble;
Do not do a thing
If you know it’s a crime;
To be free from blame
And free from punishment,
Hands off crime;
Yet, some live on crime
And think they are free;
No one is free;
And none is fine,
Who lives on crime;
If you live on crime,
Punishment will be
Hard to escape.
The best thing to do,
Stay off crime;
Commit no crime;
Plan no crime in your heart;
If you know it is wrong,
Don’t do it;
If you know it’s criminal,
Don’t do it,
No matter how much gain
It will bring to you,
Don’t do it.

Quote (girls and life)

“I have been examining the challenges that young girls face as they grow up. What I have found is many of them run into trouble with boys and men to a point where their lives are ruined. This is because a lot of bad people disguise themselves and pass for good people. In their naivety, young girls in particular fall into their dragnet before their eyes open. Our girls have to be cautioned to be very vigilant and prudent.” (Romilia Quotes)

Don’t deceive yourself

Don’t deceive yourself;
Or allow another to do so;
No matter how bitter
The truth is,
It must be said;
Success is not an easy thing
To come by;
Few are those who find it
With ease;
Some might look like
They do,
But that may not be
The reality;
You have to toil
For your success;
You have to sweat;
And get hard blows
At times;
And yet to hang on;
If someone tells you
It’s otherwise,
That success comes easily
Tell them
Not to deceive you;
And you also,
Don’t deceive yourself;
Don’t ever do.
