A man that raises hand to beat the wife?
#beat_no_wife. Show me a man that raises hand to beat his wife, and I will ask: “is their hope for such a man”? This irritates me a lot when I hear a man raising his hand to beat the weaker lady he once professed his love for. A lady he knelt down to propose to?

topic 146: Why the need to be grateful to God after all?(episode 2)

Why the need to be grateful to God after all?
Start with the EPISODE 1 HERE 
You will never appreciate who you are right now until you lose that little thing you have yet in your hand. You will never appreciate that your case is still better than some others until you look back and gauge your life. Your case will never be the worst in life.
What you are today is what millions of people are dreaming to be, but because you haven’t achieved what is in front, you refuse to appreciate what was in the past.  You forgot to appreciate the gift of life. You forgot to appreciate what didn’t kill you has only made you stronger.

Never give up and never blame God. He understands all you wouldn’t understand as a mere man. He created you for a purpose and you have much to do by discovering the purpose. Every good visions do not speak at the beginning. It is a gradual process. It may tarry, but it will surely come to pass. Life is a process my brother. Don’t rush it or else you will catch up with the storm. The greatest crime on your path to success is to give up or to cut it short. Do your best and don’t quit, even when people refuse to believe in you.

Your time is too valuable to waste on complaints. No matter what knocks you down in life, get back up and keep going. Never try to give up on God now. Great blessings are a result of great perseverance. Good things come to those who believe, better things come to those who are patient, and the best things come to those who don't give up. Never pray for a life that is so easy; pray for the strength to endure a difficult one. Disappointments were not meant to destroy you. They were meant to strengthen you and give you fortitude to accomplish your God-given destiny. Never question God, His existence and sovereignty. Only a fool would say there is no God.

topic 145: Why the need to be grateful to God after all? (episode 1)

Why the need to be grateful to God after all?
“It’s like my life is an experiment before God. I don’t even think He cares about me or my existence. Or is God’s existence we were told, a mere fairy tale? Despite all I have given to life; my prayers, my supplications, my persistence, hard labor, to mention a few;
but see where I am today. I am still crawling and struggling with life when my contemporaries are flying. Things are everyday falling apart for me. I have given much to life than what I am and where I am today. Even people that, ordinarily, are not at my level are now far above me”. Why me? Why is life turning this way for me?”  That was Kunle’s statement as I overheard.

For Counsel, for testimony, contact us via WhatsApp on +2347066352274 or mail us on ishopealive@gmail.com.

I felt broken where I sat and I was going to ask myself the affirmation of the existence of God if life wouldn’t just give according to how we labored, worked and prayed. I was going to ask myself the significance of time and chance in the life of a man. I was going to question God and indirectly tell God life is not fair (But I was wrong also). Momentarily, my eyes flipped through on the headset I was holding in my hand. The left side just got spoiled few days after the right side spoiled. It was at this moment the answer to Kunle’s plight came to me, and I want you the reader to learn from this.

Few days ago, I felt sad when one side of my expensive headset got spoiled. Prior to this time, I would take good care of the headset, I would protect it from falling, I would only use it on special occasions. But the moment the right side got spoiled, I lost all the passion towards caring for the other side that was still working. I didn’t appreciate the second side of the ear piece again despite the fact that it was still working pretty well. I underestimated the importance of the single working side because the other side was not functioning. Ultimately the truth dawned on me when the both sides wouldn’t work at all. Is hope alive?

A one-eyed my will never appreciate the single working eye until the other becomes blind, an amputated man will not appreciate the other leg until the second is no more. The poor man will never appreciate his life until he is tied down by a terminal illness. You will never appreciate your two square meal until you truly understand the meaning of hunger without certainty of the next meal.

topic 144: Placing your Pain Above your Dream!

Placing Your pain above your dream!
Three things make us give up so easily in life. It is either you just live with no dream at all, or you have one but you don’t think it is ever worth fighting for, and finally, it is because we place our pains far above our dreams.
Because of the weight and burden of the pain or the suffering the people above us or our environment subject us, we tend to put aside the dreams we carry just to exhaust the pain we bear. We put the burden of our shame, our failures, our mistakes, our pasts, our status, our abuse, etc. far above the dream we need to nurture.

The previous two factors are of high significance also, but for the purpose of this article, I will be focusing more on the last factor, which is placing your pain above your dreams.

For Counsel, for testimony, contact us via WhatsApp on +2347066352274 or mail us on ishopealive@gmail.com.

If your dream is more important than your pain, then you will forgive yourself of the mistakes you made yesterday, and give yourself another chance. If your dream is stronger than your pain, you will fend off the abuse and gossip of those people (friends and enemies) around you. If your dream is more important, you will not be intimidated by the words of those people that are saying ‘you can never make it in life’. If your dream is more important, you will not give up because of the failure of the past. If your dream is more important, the way your superior is treating you will not derail you off your focus. If your dream is more important, you will give no consideration to those that refuse to believe in you. If your dream is more important, you will not be carried away by critics and criticism.

Many dreams have died, some fizzled out and some crumbled along the way; not because there was no intrinsic ability to make it come to pass, but because they wouldn’t overcome the pain and the test of time. Even our Lord Jesus Christ was almost giving up, but He quickly realized the greater dreams and glories ahead of him, and ultimately he placed His potential glories above the present pains. He encountered emotional and physical pain, but He kept on pushing through the pains, knowing fully well the crown that awaits him.

Pain doesn’t last forever; it only comes to teach, leaving behind a scar.  It is always for a short time, but irrespective of the nature or magnitude of the pain, it has come to make a mark. Not just an ordinary mark, but the one that will either make you stronger and better or it destroys you forever. How your pain turns out to be is in your hand. Never give up because hope is alive.

Top Things to Do When Life Frustrates You 
Start with the EPISODE 1 HERE
Think of when one is jabbing the other, but the one being jabbed has chosen to seat at one corner of the ring. What do you think will end such a boxer? He will be beaten down, tired and end up being the loser.
                              

Though the angle he is sitting is comfortable for him, at least to recover, yet he got beaten up. Sitting at that corner would definitely be of more disadvantage to

Top Things to Do When Life Frustrates You
Frustration comes in life after you have patiently endured, persisted and you have undoubtedly given all within you, but at some juncture it seems all the waiting, all the spent time and all the expended energy do not really worth it.
                                     
No green light seems to be near, and you are on the verge of giving up. You become so distressed and all you think of doing next is just to give up. At that point, many

Oppression, A Sore To The Wound In Humanity
Start with the EPISODE 1 HERE
What a shame! What a pity! Because you pay her stipend salary, you turn her into a slave. Because you promise her little, you expect her to bear all your cross for you. To all the bosses out there: think twice and put yourself in their position before you act. Before you give an order, how would you feel if you were to be in their shoe.
You discomfort others for your own comfort. What a selfish act! You maltreat people under you because you think you are superior to

OPPRESSION, A SORE TO THE WOUND IN HUMANITY
Because you promise him a stick of carrot a day, you demand from him a log of timber every day; that is an oppression. I heard someone said “even my dog feed better than some of u”; that is an oppression mixed with foolishness. I heard another person said “even my unborn child is richer than you”; that is an oppression concocted with stupidity.

Oppression from leaders to followers, oppression from bosses to their servants, oppression from the powerful to the powerless, oppression from
