Go Pa James.... It's your birthday... Regards to Miss pepeye

Happy Birthday. Thanks for bringing smiles to our faces 



Popular Nollywood actor known as Pa James in the Nollywood English world, but Ajirebi in the Yoruba movie world is 60 today but many didn't know. This particular photo however sneaked (you can call yours leaked lol) out. Happy birthday to him!

Never judge anybody by his or her look

It is often said that it is the way you dress that you are addressed but Ali Baba, disagrees with that 



We absolutely agree with him, lol. Please read….
This is why the face you see does not determine the person inside. People may appear cool on the outside but combustible on the inside. This lady was woken up at 5:30am by the maigaurd, just to inform her of a flat tyre.
She got him to change the spare and with her fresh from sleep face, she drove to the Vulcanizer on the next street. She dropped the tyre off to be fixed and told him it will be picked up at 7:30am on her way to work. She went back home and got ready for work.
On her way, looking all made up and dressed up, she stopped by the Vulcanizer. "morning baba, Is the tyre ready?" she asked. "Yes my daughter. Your mother brought it in the morning…" let us try not to judge a book by its cover. This was exactly why most parents refused their kids from reading #jameshardleychase novels back in the days.
Until, 1975 when I secretly read #onebrightsummermorning, and told the story to my Dad. And he was thrilled by the story. He actually bought me several but used to make me read chapters to him in the evenings when he was reclined in his easy chair. However, I was only allowed to read the series if the front cover was covered.
Now you know why most of my #jameshardleychase novels from way back had no covers. Back to people who are beautiful inside… one day we came back from Abuja on a flight with this man that inundated us with my wife this my wife that… my wife… my wife… my wife… This was all in a space of a 3 hour cancelled flight. So we were sooooo looking forward to meeting the wife. Oh boy! She no fine. But guess what? She had the most beautiful soul. She brought him Smoothie to drink on arrival and carried his bag. One of our guys whose wife will give Juliet Ibrahim a run for her beauty, left him a text. "I have been waiting for over 30 minutes. I have things to do.
Take a cab" and left. We both read the text and swallowed the lessons. Some people will claim to be Christians, yet you will get help from a Muslim after the CHRISTIAN turns you down. Tall, broad shoulders, handsome, GQ look and spreee spreee will not stop some men from beating the crap out of you. Be guided.'


Plant A Seed

A successful business man was growing old and knew it was time to choose a successor to take over the business.
Instead of choosing one of his Directors or his children, he decided to do something
different. He called all the young executives
in his company together. 
He said, "It is time for me to step down and choose the next CEO. I have decided to choose one of you." The young executives
were shocked, but the boss continued.
"I am going to give each one of you a
SEED today – one very special SEED. I want you to plant the seed, water it, and come back here one year from today with what you have grown from the seed I have given you. I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next
CEO."
One man, named Jim, was there that day and he, like the others, received a seed. He went home and excitedly, told his wife the story. She helped him get a pot, soil and
compost and he planted the seed.
Everyday, he would water it and watch to see if it had grown. After about three weeks, some of the other executives began to talk
about their seeds and the plants that were
beginning to grow. Jim kept checking his
seed, but nothing ever grew. Three weeks, four weeks, five weeks went by, still nothing. By now, others were talking about their plants, but Jim didn't have a plant and he felt like a failure.
Six months went by — still nothing in Jim's pot. He just knew he had killed his seed. Everyone else had trees and tall plants, but he had nothing. Jim didn't say anything to his colleagues, however… He just kept watering and fertilizing the soil – He so wanted the seed to grow.
A year finally went by and all the young executives of the company brought their plants to the CEO for inspection.
Jim told his wife that hewasn't going.to take an empty pot. But she asked him to be honest about what happened. Jim felt sick to his stomach, it was going to be the most
embarrassing moment of his life, but he knew his wife was right.
He took his empty pot to the boardroom. When Jim arrived, he was amazed at the variety of plants grown by the other executives.
They were beautiful — in all shapes and sizes.
Jim put his empty pot on the floor and many of his colleagues laughed, a few felt sorry for him!
When the CEO arrived, he surveyed the room and greeted his young executives.
Jim just tried to hide in the back. "My, what great plants, trees, and flowers you have grown," said the CEO.
"Today one of you will be appointed the next CEO!" All of a sudden, the CEO spotted Jim at the back of the room with his empty pot. He ordered the Financial
Director to bring him to the front. Jim was terrified. He thought, "The CEO knows I'm a failure! Maybe he will have me fired!"
When Jim got to the front, the CEO asked him what had happened to his seed – Jim told him the story.
The CEO asked everyone to sit down except Jim. He looked at Jim, and then announced to the young executives, "Behold your next Chief Executive Officer! His name is Jim!"
Jim couldn't believe it. Jim couldn't even grow his seed. "How could he be the new CEO?" the others said.
Then the CEO said, "One year ago today, I gave everyone in this room a seed. I told you to take the seed, plant it, water it, and bring it back to me today. But I gave you all
boiled seeds; they were dead – it was not possible for them to grow. All of you, except
Jim, have brought me trees and plants and flowers. When you found that the seed would not grow, you substituted another seed for the one
I gave you. Jim was the only one with the
courage and honesty to bring me a pot with my seed in it. Therefore, he is the one who will be the new Chief Executive Officer!"

* If you plant honesty, you will reap trust.
* If you plant goodness, you will reap friends.
* If you plant humility, you will reap greatness.
* If you plant perseverance, you will reap contentment.
* If you plant consideration, you will reap perspective.
* If you plant hard work, you will reap success.
* If you plant forgiveness, you will reap reconciliation.
* If you plant faith in God, you will reap a harvest.

So, be careful what you plant now; it will determine what you will reap later...

How big is God

A Boy asked his Father:- Dad what is the size of GOD?
Then the Father looked up at the Sky and saw a Plane and asked his Son:- What is the size of this Plane?
The Boy replied:- it is very small. I can hardly see it. 
Then, the father took him to the airport and as they approached a plane, he asked: -
Now, my Son, how big is this Plane?
The boy replied:- Wow dad, it's huge! 
Then the father told him:- GOD's size depends on how close or far you are to him. The closer you are to him, the Greater and Greater he will be in your life!
That is the truth.
Your intimacy will show you the greatness of GOD..... 
May GOD's greatness cover your life and family as you draw closer to Him... 
It's an Evangelism day pass it to others. hv a blessed week ahead.

Where were the adults of Israel when the children of Israel were doing that

One Sunday morning, after an interesting Sunday school topic, the teacher asked, "Any question?"
A student, looking puzzled, raised his hand.
Student: "You said the children of Israel escaped from Egypt?"
Teacher: Yes
Student: "You said the children of Israel crossed the red sea?"
Teacher: Yes
Student: "You said the children of Israel also brought down the mighty walls of Jericho?"



Teacher: "Yes! What exactly is your question?"
Student: "When the children of Israel were doing all this, where exactly were the adults of Israel??"

Dara Adenekan on facebook writes

Why do people think that after NYSC you should be thinking of Masters Programme, even when you are not planning to pursue a career in the academics?

What happens to the four years of hard labour to pursue a degree? Won't one at least make enough money from that and compensate yourself and your parents/sponsors for the job well done before thinking of another academic pursuit?

Has first degree become so worthless in this country that we all must go for masters?

Memorise: And I, behold, I will harden the heats of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them: and I will get me honour upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen. Exodus 14:17

Read: Exodus 14:15-17 (King James Version)

15 And the Lord said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:

16 But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.

17 And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them: and I will get me honour upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen.

MESSAGE:
Do you know that every time God moves to deliver a helpless and hopeless individual, He gets some form of glory from it? After led the children of Israel out of Egypt and they were on their way towards the Red Sea, the Egyptians, forgetting all that they had suffered on account of the Israelites, resolved to go after them and bring them back. This was a serious problem for the Israelites, who had lived as slaves all their lives and were just experiencing freedom for the very first time. However, God did not leave them alone. In fact, He prepared Moses and Joshua to physically lead them while He provided spiritual direction and protection. On your way to your place of destiny, the Lord will not leave you alone. As He led the Israelites, so will He lead you in Jesus' Name. Be assured in your heart that God will not allow your present predicament to drown you, because He knows that His intervention will definitely bring glory to His Name.

"And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them: and I will get me honour upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen."

Exodus 14:17

What God's children were faced with the serious threat of returning to slavery, although they cried to God for help, one major reason why God intervened was because of the glory or honour He was going to get from it. If you are confronted with a situation you can easily come out of, or a situation someone can help you out with, either you or the fellow who helped you might want to take or partake of the glory when the problem is solved. In contrast to this, when you are pushed to a corner, with no specialist, parent, relative, friend or pastor to help, when God intervenes in such situations and the issue is resolved, He alone will take the glory. God does not like to share His glory with anyone or anything (Isaiah 42:8).

Unfortunately, many people who give testimonies still share in or even completely rob God of His glory. The summary of their testimonies is that they prayed so much, fasted so long, gave a lot or were very smart and got their miracle because of this. Such people are glory thieves. There are many people who have done much more than they did and yet their situations have not changed. God can step into your situation because of the glory He will get from it, so never tamper with His glory.

ACTION POINT
Man has a problem and wants a solution. God gives the solution and wants the glory. Never allow anything to tamper with God's expectation!

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Acts 8-9, Jeremiah 35:12-36:3.

AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

HYMN 8: GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS

1. "Great is Thy faithfulness," O God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be. "Great is Thy faithfulness!" "Great is Thy faithfulness!"
  Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—
    "Great is Thy faithfulness," Lord, unto me!

2. Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

3. Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

How much is your salary... I mean what is your salary

#copied

What is your Salary?
Please be Sincere.…

Sorry, I am not interested in the amount but the type of salary.

My friend, there are different types of salaries...

You will not understand unless you read to the end.

There is no average income.

The rich are becoming richer, while the poor are getting poorer.

There is no middle class 'cos it has completely disappeared.

Salary, is a specific amount of money that an employee is paid for work done.

The big question is Which type do you earn?

1. *Onion Salary:* - You grab it, you open it, and you cry.

2. *Storm Salary:* - You don't know when it's coming or going.

3. *Menstrual Salary:* - It comes once a month and lasts only four days.

4. *Magic Salary:* - You touch it and it disappears.

5. *Amnesia Salary:* - You can't remember what you spent it on.

6. *Time Travelling Salary:* - You spend it paying various debts even before you collect it.

7. *Active Salary* - Once you stop working, it stops.

*RESIDUAL INCOME - You work once, and it keeps paying you over and over and over again even AFTER you have stopped working.*

Whether it's magic salary, amnesia salary or onion salary, the moment it STOPS coming, your life becomes unbearable.

*Financial LITERACY is the tool needed to TRANSFORM your salary to a RESIDUAL INCOME, so you can create financial freedom and time freedom.*

*ONLY YOUR INVESTMENT can keep you going even after all the onions, amnesty, traveling, active salaries have left you drenched.*

Research had it that the poorest group of people in the world are Salary earners, next to beggars.

They live in a vicious cycle of poverty managed on 30 days. Salary is continuously being awaited every month and any slight delay brings about heartbreaking anxiety, pressure and disappointment. 

*Salary Is a short term solution to a life time problem.*

Salary alone cannot solve your money problems. You need multiple Sources of income to balance.

The tax returns form contains about 11 income streams, salary is just one.

Don't live Your Life fishing with just one hook, there are many fishes in the ocean.

Salary is the MEDICINE for managing POVERTY, not the CURE. Only your BUSINESS or INVESTMENT Cures Poverty.

*Most investors are not salary earners.*

*The difference between those beggars on the street and salary earners is one month's salary.*

*Truncate the flow of their salary for one month and you would realized majority belong to the lower class.*

If you divide your salary by the rate of exchange, you Will discover that you are poorer, relative to when you started work.

Or divide your salary per annum by 2,000 hours to know what your one hour is worth.

*If you do not have 3 months salary in savings, you are already poor.*

Being a salary earner is a mentality, break it!

Your worth Is far more than your salary.

Salary Is the value someone has put on your effort, How much do you value yourself?

You can't increase in value, unless you VALUE yourself differently.

Life Is a trade off between time, effort and reward. To be rewarded more, you have to become more valuable.

Most salary earners end up poor in the long and short term.

Sorry to say Salary is the bribe they gave you to forget your dreams. 

I therefore urge every one of us to be FINANCIALLY INTELLIGENT, FINANCIALLY LITERATE and TRAIN OUR EYES TO SEE OPPORTUNITIES IN PROBLEMS. Delve into entrepreneurship because Salary is a lifetime disappointment. 

Being a salary earner or investor is a decision. Life Will not change until you decide.

*Make the MOVE!!!*πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

Ooo no you can't



Impossible things in this world...
1 - You can't count your hairs.
2 - You can't wash your eyeballs with soap
3 - You can't breathe through your nose while your tongue is out.

Please! put your tongue back inside your mouth...
and STOP acting like a dog...!! 
Chai! I knew you were going to do that*😁😁 
AFRICANS , Na everything una dey practice?....I was a victim too so why should I suffered it alone? 
send this to more of your contacts/groups  don't spoil the fun 
Enjoy your weekend

THEME: HOW OFTEN DO YOU FAST?    

Memorise:

In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness. 2 Corinthians 11:27

Read: Matthew 6:16-18

16:16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

16:17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;

16:18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

Message:

One of my sons was travelling with me for the very first time sometime ago, and after we had been together for two days he asked me, "Daddy, why do you pray so much?" he said he observed that before we left the room, we prayed; when we got into the car, we prayed; on arrival at our destination, we prayed; when we entered the venue of the programme, we prayed; on arrival at the lodging place, we prayed; also when he peeped to check on me, he still saw me on my knees. Well, I pray a lot because prayer is an activity we are commanded to always engage in (1 Thessalonians 5:17). How often do you pray? Do you use every available opportunity to pray?

Apart from prayer, another spiritual activity you should regularly engage in to keep you spiritually fit and growing is fasting. Some people believe that doing a long fast for 30days or 100days is sufficient for a year. While this is a good spiritual exercise, there is still the need to continue fasting in the course of the year. When the Lord addressed the question of why His disciples were not fasting often like those of John the Baptist, here is what He said in Luke 5:34:

"And he said unto them, Can ye make the children of the bride chamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them?"

Since the Master has been received into glory, it is clear from His words that we now are expected to fast often. Some people fast for a short period at a stretch and thereafter they want to feast for the rest of the year. This is not good enough. A better practice is to find or create some time monthly or better still weekly to engage in fasting. Fasting was not strange to the patriarchs of old. Fasting does you so much good spiritually, so it should be a part of your lifestyle. You can live a fasted life. While detailing his experience in life, Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 11:27 said that fasting was a reoccurring activity in his Christian life:
"In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness."

Most people who find it difficult to fast simply have a problem with discipline. They are so used to eating that they cannot sacrifice a few meals to seek God's face. Anyone who cannot control his or her appetite may remain enslaved to the body. Fasting helps to subdue or break the controlling power that the weaknesses and desires of your body have over you.

Action Point:

Stop talking about your plan to fast, just go ahead and fast. You can start with one day per week.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Deuteronomy 33-34
Jeremiah 32:36-44 

AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

HYMN 6: DEEPER, DEEPER 

1. Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus
Daily let me go;
Higher, higher in the school of wisdom,
More of grace to know.

Refrain:
Oh, deeper yet, I pray,
And higher every day,

In Thy precious, holy Word.

2. Deeper, deeper, blessed Holy Spirit,
Take me deeper still,
Till my life is wholly lost in Jesus,
And His perfect will.
[Refrain]

3. Deeper, deeper! though it cost hard trials,
Deeper let me go!
Rooted in the holy love of Jesus,
Let me fruitful grow.
[Refrain]

4. Deeper, higher, every day in Jesus,
Till all conflict past,
Finds me conqu'ror, and in His own image
Perfected at last.
[Refrain]


5. Deeper, deeper in the faith of Jesus,
Holy faith and true;
In His pow'r and soul exulting wisdom
Let me peace pursue.
[Refrain]

The Interviewee Who Hated Me

THE INTERVIEWEE WHO HATED ME

6 years ago a guy looked at me face to face, and boldly told me; "I don't like you!"

I immediately fired a response, I asked him that day; "Thank you for the honest feedback, but those that you like, how has it made their life better? How does your liking people pay their bills or take a bank loan? My brother keep your like, I need God's like And that's what guarantees my future.

Today I joined a CEO friend of mine in an interview Panel to recruit some new staff, it was a long session, as we returned from a coffee break to continue the hectic interview session, here was this same guy walked in with his grey jacket and CV coming for the interview.

Our eyes kissed by fluke, we immediately recognised eachother; "the world is indeed spherical", I soliloquized.
He felt very uncomfortable through out the interview, one could clearly see the volcanic eruption ongoing in his whole nervous system, he even mistook his date of birth for his last date of employment. It wasn't yet my turn to ask him questions so I allowed everyone to take their turns with him and deliberately opted to interview him last.

When it got to my turn, the first thing I said was, "I LIKE YOU so much, you look to me like a brilliant and intelligent person, but it seems you are not doing well now because something bothers you, true?"

"That's very correct Sir!" He responded.

"Ok look at me straight in the eye, I was never offended that day, it is very normal that sometimes as humans you just don't like certain people, but I wasn't bothered either, because whether you liked me or not, it was inconsequential to my life and my success path - as you can see, fate has brought you to my lair"

I stood up and beckoned him to come and embrace me, everyone on the panel at this point were at sea - wondering if we had expeditiously recast an interview session to a Hollywood movie scene.

He hugged me so long and deeply that I felt it. Then I told him, "now get your confidence back bro and answer the questions like a Pro Shark that you are, we all burst into laughter, everyone suddenly liked him and the room became livelier - the interview became more like a discussion, well to cut the long story short, he got the job!

Lessons:

1. Be careful how you treat people when they appear to be in their vulnerable state, your next level may be hanging in their balance;  somewhere in the future.

2. If you dislike someone, it is not their fault, it is YOUR FAULT, work on yourself to find good in people and reinvent your Mind to see everyone as likeable.

3. Don't spew hatred vocally just because it came into your heart, you may say it to someone who will keep it forever and use it against you when you find yourself in your own low moments and need them.

4. Learn to forgive, overlook people's dislike and hatred for you, dont punish people just because you have the position and privilege to do so, bless them rather - that's how you court God's blessings, favour and protection.

5. Share this post, someone needs it to heal from their past burdens of unforgiveness they have been carrying which has been hindering their promotions and inhibiting God's blessings flowing their way.

COPIED.

Welcome to the good life... NYC

Good women keep their homes

One man told his wife that he was going for two weeks seminar abroad.

The wife later discovered that her husband was with another woman in the next street.

The woman went there and found her husband with the woman. She left and came back home without saying anything.

Two days after, the husband came back home and went straight to the bedroom. Five minutes later when the wife did not see him in the living room she went in only to see him packing his clothes.

Wife: Honey what are you doing.
Husband: I am packing out of this house.
Wife: But why?
Husband: If you were the one caught with another man,  I would have sent you packing. But now that you have caught me, I deserve the same punishment.  So I want to punish myself by packing out.

Wife: (she quickly knelt down) Honey, no need to punish yourself. I have forgiven you already.
Husband: Really, you should let me serve my punishment.
Wife: (she unpacked the load) There is no need. The Bible tells us to forgive one another.
Talking to herself.... ( 'yeye' man,  he is looking for excuse to go and stay with that woman permanently, for where? Look, you can't dodge your responsibilities oo. Na me and you go take care of the five children we have)
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Lesson: Wise women keep their homes.

Ambode Bans VIO and FRSC on Lagos Roads

Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode has banned VIO and FRSC from Lagos roads saying that these two agencies do not reduce traffic congestion in Lagos but rather add to it

Ambode said this while commissioning the pedestrian bridge, lay-by and slip road at Ojodu-Berger bus stop on Tuesday.

The governor said it had been observed that VIOs and FRSC contributed significantly to traffic gridlock in the Lagos metropolis.

He said the state would employ technology to track and monitor vehicle registration and MOT certifications.

In his words: "Let me use this opportunity to reiterate that Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIOs) have been asked to stay off our roads permanently. We also advice the Federal Road Safety Corps to stay on the fringes and highways and not on the main streets of Lagos.

"It has become evident that these agencies contribute to the traffic challenges on our roads. We will employ technology to track and monitor vehicle registration and MOT certifications."
