The new Chief Shepherd
Of Mamfe,
The new Pastor
Of the one family Diocese
Of Mamfe,
Do you know him?
Anxiety is rife;
All want to know
Who is that favoured one?
He is unknown;
For now, God alone knows;
But he can be no other
Than a Shepherd of great qualities;
A dedicated and devoted fisherman;
Who has proven his worth
In the eyes of the Lord?
In his divine wisdom,
With his unfathomable mind,
God alone knows;
He alone makes the choice;
From among his shepherds,
He calls the Chief Shepherd,
The choice is his;
Yes, the Chief Shepherd

In the Holy Catholic Church;

At his chosen time;
Through the signatory power
Of the Holy Father,
Let us pray
That this choosen one
Will best please the Lord;
That this chosen one
Will best deliver the goods;
That under his leadership
The Gospel will courageously
Continue its journey
Throughout the territory
Of the Diocese of Mamfe.
Almighty God,

With many uncertainties;
Only you can protect him.

All the rest of his life;
This is our prayer
Through Christ our Lord, Amen!

When will you marry?

This is for those who are not married?
I want to know
What you are waiting for;
When will you marry?
Are you waiting for Miss Right?
Or Mr. Right?
If you are looking for Perfect,
Let me assure you
That particular individual
Is still a long way off;
Mr. Right and Miss Right
Are hard to find.
You will grow white hair
Waiting for Mr./Miss Right.
And why should you?
How right are you?
Why do you want right
When you are not right?
If you are not married,
Make up your mind and get in.
Stop looking for what
You will never find.
There is no Miss Perfect;
And no Mr. Perfect anywhere
In the world.
No Mr. Right, no Miss Right.

The choice is not yours

Some days are like birds
In the sky;
Flying freely up and down;
What you do not expect
Is what comes your way;
Freely flying like birds
In the sky;
It may be good,
It may be bad;
All is
It’s what you never
Expected to have;
Which says much
About the life we live;
No one can say
What God has for one;
You may desire a thing
And the exact opposite
Is what he gives you;
But sometimes
What you desire
Is what exactly he gives you;
What you desire;
The choice never is yours;
Always the choice is his;
You need, he knows better
Than you;
You have to put your trust
All in him;
Whatever is good,
Ask and he will decide;
If it’s in stock,
For sure, he will give you.

The reason many fail (Be inspired today 231 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

If you stand at the bottom of a mountain and look at its summit, most likely you will feel intimidated and tempted to give up.

This is the deciding moment for you. What you do at this moment defines the direction of your life – whether you are moving forward to success or to failure.

You may choose to give up or to undertake the journey.

Of course, to give up is to opt for failure. If you decide to start climbing, that is the first but major step that puts success in your life.

A very high number of people in the world allow the challenges on their path to success to intimidate them and make give up.

Because they are caught in this trap, there are so many failures in the world.

Only a few who don’t shy away when they see how challenging it is to get to the mountain top become achievers.

To be an achiever, do not let anything stand between you and the mountain top where your golden crown is found.

Once you know where your treasure is, sit down, work out your plan and go for it.

Of course, you don’t work alone. What people can achieve working together is far beyond what someone, even a giant can get working alone.

So don’t go alone. Get partners. And your number one partner is a partner who surpasses a million partners and that is God.

I don’t need to belabour the point. A word to a wise is sufficient.

Do not fall among the losers. Fall among the winners. Don’t do like the losers do for you will get what they get. Instead, do as the winners. You will get what the winners get.

Labour not in vain

We are all on our way;
We are always labouring;
If I am not
On my way to success,
I am on my way to failure;
If you are not
On your way to success,
You are on your way
To failure.
No one stands still;
Always on the move,
One way or another;
Make sure you are going
In the right direction.
Make the right choice;
Take the right decision;
Choose wisely,
Otherwise, you will labour
In vain.
Labour not in vain.

God chooses whom he likes

God chooses whom he pleases;
God chooses whom he calls;
God chooses whom he favours;
God chooses whom he befriends;
Because not all of us
Are the same;
Some in heart are pure;
Some, far from pure.
And God does not look outside;
God looks inside;
And sees further than
All human eyes can see.
Look into him;
He will call you
If he is pleased with you ;
It is all his choice.
God chooses whom he pleases.e
God decides what he does;
Look at the birds high
In the sky,
God alone made them so;
Look at all the trees,
And the hills, the valleys
And the rivers,
God chose to make them so;
God chooses who he pleases;
God creates what he likes;
Look at the seas raging so,
God made them what they are;
God chose to give us a Saviour,
That was all his choice.
He could have done otherwise,
But he chose the way he did it;
God chooses what he does.
And his choice is final,
Because of all possible options,
It is the best ever.
