When in Shanghai

Image
A lot of stories have been said about this place, from being the hub of foreigners in China, with a very beautiful environment, to being one the most expensive places to live in China and so on.  It all made my longing to visit this place really high so when I saw an opportunity to, it was only natural to take it. 
From the moment I commenced my trip to the day I got back to my city had me filled with a feeling of ecstasy not because of the city of Shanghai or what I found therein but because of those I travelled with.  Really great people whose ideas are not just interesting but informative, every argument made sense, every moment spent with them just felt like the right thing to do. I laughed so hard at their many jokes, the walks, the complaints, the search for our way around, even the confusion was just incredible. 
It doesn't matter where you go to in life or what you get to do, the important thing is who you get to go there with and what you get to do with them that adds jo…

The Relationship between Marriage and Respect

Hey guys , my friend sent this to me and though I find it really hilarious, it's completely ridiculous. read up and share your thoughts in the comment section, I would like to know what you think.

      "Today at school,I went to get my monthly clearance form from the headmaster, it happened that I entered with three other fellow corps members.
The headmaster unfortunately has just one form left and asked someone go make photocopies. One was with a child
The other has a ring( wedding ring or engagement ring,I didn't bother looking)
The last, quite chubby and bigger than me in looks
I was busy with my phone,my head down when I heard ' ocha go and make photocopies.
I turned with that look like ' Are you talking to me, me?
They chorused  yes,you
I asked why, like why should I be the one to go make photocopies for you guys.
Unbelievably they said' I buro nwunye oga(you ain't married or with a child)
I shook!😳
I was like wow!
They chorused yes now ,no evidenc…

Let's talk about EVANGELISM

Image
I don't know for you all but I've always thought the idea of evangelism is to go into the world,  preach to people, get them to believe in Jesus Christ and then add them into the church.
Well, I was taught a better approach to evangelism, which is going into the world and make disciples of all nations but instead of just adding to the church population, train them to also go into the world and make more disciples, this way, the chain of dissemination of the Gospel just like a tree with many branches, is well spread, reaching out to all corners of the world and very fast too.
     The essence of this is not because it is a command but a call to help save the lost who in most cases don't know they are lost especially in this our generation.
    It would be difficult of course, you would get rejected or laughed at but hey, count it all joy that you suffer persecution for Christ's sake 😉.
       It might not necessarily mean you would have to preach directly, your …

加油!!

Image
加油- pronounced as "Jia you " a Chinese word which translates as "add oil " but literally means "more grease (to your elbow) " , is a word used to give encouragement to people dealing with challenges.
      Living in a world where no one really cares about how much effort you put to achieve success but are only concerned with whether or not you were able to be successful, self encouragement is inevitable.
When you are the only one that sees that light at the end of the tunnel, though  it seems you aren't even sure if the light is still there because everyday brings new frustrations, heart aches and stress but you are the only one who can really believe in you especially when no one does. You are your only fan.
     Some people on the other hand are lucky enough to be surrounded by those who trust in them even more than they trust in themselves, people that see the bigger picture, the hidden potential and so on and are relentless in giving their …

Listen

Image
Hi people, you remember the saying when you point at someone with your index finger, the three other fingers point back at you.  Well, sometimes we don't actually point with our fingers but with our minds and the other three fingers that point back happen to be our conscience, that still small voice that keeps saying "who are you to judge, do you think you're better?  First remove the plank from your eyes before you tell someone to remove the speck from theirs " and so on .

    Listening to that still small voice can reduce so much hate and judging in the world, it could even go as far as making you a better person if you choose to treat your issue first before you begin to treat that of others, so while you are busy picking someone's errors, do well to listen to your heart, not just listen, understand what you need to do and act on it. 😉


The Change Process

An article by my friend Elele, U.A.  Enjoy...

2018 will be better for those that cooperate with God.

It is simply one second after 11:59 pm on December 31.

A new sun doesn’t appear. No star drops. Rain doesn't fall for a second and go. Some people simply jump because they can now flip their calendar.

They believe that because they call it "new" that it will become "new". But just like no star falls, nothing really happens. It is only a continuation of the previous day.

If you decided to change somewhere in August, your life would have been better in August; same for September and November.

It is the decision/willingness to change that really makes people better. And this decision can be taken anytime.

A lot are in church now; others are waiting for "some words" to glue to their bibles, doors, and cars, a lot have oil applied to their faces. I remember how many wishes I got during my Matriculation. Everyone was happy, but few came around to ask me whe…

Back Then When....

Image
Ok, so I'm gisting with my roommate and we are discussing the silly things we did as teenagers.
 Remember when you were busy making midnight calls to one boy that year, when you were sneaking around at night like a rat looking for a comfortable place for the call. I particularly remember how many times my mum seized my phone just because the noise from my laugher at night was so loud. If I tell you say I still remember the name of the boy I was talking to then, you know say I dey lie.

That time you would willingly volunteer to fetch water so that you can have the time to meet your secret boyfriend and chat a little. If he buys something for you, you would also sneak into the house and then share it with your favorite sibling because if you give others they might tell on you.
I remember how many times the food I was cooking got burnt simply because I was on 2go and my papa no dey hear that kind talk o, he would always deduct the estimated price of the kerosene spent on the burnt f…
