Image
Nigeria's President, Muhammadu Buhari's Photographer, Bayo Omoboriowo was opportuned to meet with outgoing US President in the White House and his experience was remarkable.

Read what he wrote below as sourced from Instagram:

He shook my hands and gave me a pat on my back as he was told I look like him........don't mind the face I made, i was star-struck. @barackobama made Presidency look so cool and his style of leadership has inspired a lot of us in the political landscape. My photography today and the way I work has been influenced due to a serious study of this man through his videos and images by @petesouza . I just want to say thank you for serving America and thank you for the privilege to have this image with you..... I would never forget this day. Thanks to @annaruch of the @whitehouse photo office for sending this photographs through as captured by @petesouza since I was with my camera and couldn't have had this image if they didn't help. #letsdomore #yes…

Talk Differently - Rhapsody Of Realities

Image
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof (Proverbs 18:21).

Did you know that your talk is your future? Every human person is the character of his or her words. Who you are today, what you’ve become, is the result of your words. That’s the reason you must mind your language and train yourself to talk right.

People learn their language, especially unwholesome communication, from the world around them. Someone who consistently says about his job, “This job is killing me,” probably picked it up from other colleagues or friends at work. They may think it’s fashionable to talk that way, but what they don’t realize is that death and life are in the power of the tongue.

As a Christian, you must talk differently. Never speak death. Speak life always. Learn and speak the language of the Word. The one who keeps saying, “This job is killing me,” will probably end up crippled with a stroke or other ailment at sixty or sixty-five, his cond…

How Do You Approach A Man Who Is Wielding Cutlass?

Image
...and Nnamdi looking visibly angry, ran into his room, picked his cutlass ad chased his father, Dee Okeke, out of the compound.

The hot pursuit attracted other villagers and Nnamdi's elder brother, Okechukwu who lives in the town was immediately notified of the happenings in his family.

As the elder brother, he felt that Nnamdi would listen to him. So, he took the next bus down to the village.

When he arrived the village square, he met a large crowd of people awaiting his arrival. Some youths who had gone to invite the Police drove in to report that the Police will be there soon. Nobody was willing to enter the compound as Nnamdi threatened to unleash mayhem on anybody who dares enter the compound.

Okechukwu felt that as his eldest brother, Nnamdi would listen to him. So amidst pleas from people, he made up his mind to enter the compound to persuade his brother to drop the cutlass and let his father in.

But as soon as he entered the compound, Nnamdi attacked him. Just in a matte…

What Does the Bible Say About Alcohol? Is Drinking It a Sin?

Image
It is not a sin to drink alcohol in moderation. The Bible describes wine as a gift from God that can make life more enjoyable. (Psalm 104:14, 15; Ecclesiastes 3:13; 9:7) The Bible also acknowledges the medicinal value of wine.—1 Timothy 5:23.

Jesus drank wine during his time on earth. (Matthew 26:29; Luke 7:34) In one of his well-known miracles, Jesus turned water into wine as a generous gift at a marriage feast.—John 2:1-10.


Dangers of over-drinking
While the Bible mentions the positive aspects of wine, it condemns overdrinking and drunkenness. Thus, a Christian who chooses to drink alcohol would do so only in moderation. (1 Timothy 3:8; Titus 2:2, 3) The Bible gives several reasons to avoid over-drinking.

It impairs thinking ability and judgment. (Proverbs 23:29-35) An intoxicated person cannot fulfill the Bible’s command to “present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, a sacred service with your power of reason.”—Romans 12:1.

Overdrinking removes inhibition…

Its A New Month, A New Year...What About You?

Image
Every new year, people make resolutions. These resolutions are aimed at correcting perceived inadequacies or mistakes in the previous year.

You make new plans, set new goals, strategies, new relationships and in fact, we seem to start everything anew...on a positive note. With high hopes that the new year will be better than the previous year.
In my previous post, which happens to be my first blogpost for the year 2017, i talked about introspection...looking inwards, discovering and finally unleashing that ingenuity in you.
This new month, this new year presents to us yet another opportunity to start afresh...to correct the mistakes we made yesteryear. This is an opportunity, another chance, another shot to give purpose to all areas of your life.
Whatever your decision is, make sure it positively affects your Christian life, marriage, your relationship, business, career and your entire life.
How do you make this happen?
