Help In Troubled Waters. I've Got My Shoulders For You!

Image
Today's worship corner, we are throwing it all the way back to 1998 with one of Kirk Franklin’s hit Grammy winning songs from his NU Nation project album.  SONG TITLE: LEAN ON ME LYRICS BY: KIRK FRANKLIN This is for that little child that has no father For that man who doesn't have a place to stay And for that little boy, living with AIDS You can lean on me! There's a man Standing on the corner He had no home Had no food His blue skies are gone Can you hear him cryin' out? And there's a girl Searching for her father and a friend Praying that someday the storm will end But instead of walking away Open up your heart and say I am here You don't have to worry I can see (I can see your tears) Your tears (yes) I'll be there in a hurry when you call (Yes I will) Friends are there to catch you when you fall (Here's my shoulder) Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me Oh, there's a child Who is sick and begging to be free But there is no cure for his disea

Of Rain, Rainbows, And Smiles

Welcome to a new week Tribe! I trust you are having a good time already in the new month smashing all those dreams into reality.  I came across this profound message in the archive and it's worth sharing again. I wrote this over a year ago and it is still very relevant especially at this time.  Life can throw you all shades of pain but there is always grace no matter how little it may be, I mean you're still alive right! Yeah.  Remember Noah in the ark, with all the creepy animals and all that smell he had to keep up with for all those days it rained?. His investments and years of pain washed away with the flood. Nothing was left for him out there except the breath of life in him. Then the rain ceased. The rainbow appeared and everything CHANGED. This flood is only but for a season.  Trials and temptations may flood in now, making everything seems like you will be washed away with it. That's a lie! Hang in there. Your rainbow will show up sooner than you know it, and boy! I

Love And Faithfulness!

Today’s Worship corner we are reminiscing on the goodness of God. Amidst the circumstances and chaos around us, the only thing we want to focus on is how good our God is. God is good and his mercies endures forever. He is God all by Himself and He has only good plans for us.  The Bible doesn’t just say that God does good things. It says that God is good. It is not just what He does; it is who He is, and who He is never changes.   All my life God has been faithful. Sing along with me! GOODNESS OF GOD LYRICS BY: BETHEL MUSIC AND JENN JOHNSON I love You, Lord For Your mercy never fails me All my days, I've been held in Your hands From the moment that I wake up Until I lay my head Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God And all my life You have been faithful And all my life You have been so, so good With every breath that I am able Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God I love Your voice You have led me through the fire In the darkest night You are close like no other I've known You

WHY I MADE AN SOS CALL. IT WAS A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH!

What's uppppppppp! This is my mood this month so you all better hop in the train! Good morning Tribe! This could be your Monday morning motivation but I also haven't made an official post to usher you into the new month as I have been away from here for too long. Please forgive me😁 So, here goes your Monday morning motivation and Happy new month post. Killing one bird with two stones. Or is it the the other way round now? July was our month of focus for strategies and I have been busy trying to tick some boxes off my list, and boy! It's been an interesting ride doing this.  So, I revisited my VISION BOARD  and decided it was time to stop staring at that big project on the wall and finally bring it to fusion.  *this is the part where I put my two hands on my head and be like “who send me message?” lol* So yeah, work started and it felt easier than I imagined. Plan - Checked ✔️ Consultations - Checked ✔️ Strategy - Checked ✔️ Funding - Checked ✔️ Wait what? I thought we had

Trust In Every Step Of The Way

We’ve toiled and labored all night. Now it is almost dawn and the reward for your labor is almost here but you just can’t see it yet. Good things are coming even when we can't see them. God is bringing your reward sooner than you expect. I am sharing this song from my worship corner today to encourage you in the remaining parts of the year. Whatever plans you have, just keep running with it. You will see the glory soon enough. Trust God. SONG TITLE: HAVEN'T SEEN IT YET LYRICS BY: DANNY GOKEY Have you been praying and you still have no answers? Have you been pouring out your heart for so many years? Have you been hoping that things would have changed by now? Have you cried all the faith you have through so many tears? Don't forget the things that He has done before And remember He can do it all once more It's like the brightest sunrise Waiting on the other side of the darkest night Don't ever lose hope, hold on and believe Maybe you just haven't seen it, just hav

Strategy For Focus

Image
Hey Tribe! Welcome to a new week.  I welcome you officially to a new month, July of focus. We are already in the second half of the year and in no distant time from now, we will be bidding goodbye to 2021. It also means it is time to revisit your vision board and do an appraisal of the happenings so far. It is time to dance in victory to your accomplishments and reflect on your shortcoming. No, we never weep. Sometimes, people find it very difficult to move away from and move past their shortcomings or failures.  The only way to move past failure is to focus and strategize. Do not be deterred by past failures, and the only way to do that effectively is to set your eyes on the goal. Another way is to re-strategize.  “ Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result” Albert Einstein So how about you try a different way other than you have done it before? How about you ask someone for a little help, guidance, and direction? God's grace is sufficie

  It is day 22 of the 22 days of WintererABC2021 Afrobloggers writers challenge. For 22 day Afrobloggers has given creatives an opportunity to showcase their talents and use the platform to interact with other Creatives. I tell you I've had the opportunity to meet the finest of them. Today, as the journey comes to an end. I am happy to be a part of something this big, even bigger then me.  There were times when I got tired and almost backed down but I am glad I got the courage to keep going. Special thanks to the community for standing by everyone, for sharing ideas on each week's task, and for the constant interaction with one another. On a lighter mood, I  made a compilation of the  different kinds of participants from the hall of participants. From my imagination,  for your laughing pleasure. 22 types of  participants in the 22 days WinterABC2021 challenge. *The Ready set go gang: these are the set of people who are ever ready, born ready, I mean they were born to do this.
