MY GENERATION

My generation is in a hurry.
We want everything now now now !
We want it to happen fast and right away or we’ll make it happen
We want the glory, without the story.
We want to be stars, without the scars of discipline
We want the prize, without paying the price
We want the limelight without the wilderness experience
We want thrills and frills, with no substance
We want to be eulogized without being circumcised.
We want an anointing, without the consecration.
We are controlled by what we see and feel than the voice of the Spirit and the word
We want hit songs, without the heat of the Holy Spirit’s fire
We want big platforms to perform, without first being transformed
We want huge success without going through the process
We want prosperity, with no posterity
We want to shine without being refined.

I have news for you. In this kingdom, the kingdom of our great God, there is something called the path of life. A way of glory. It’s the journey of dying to self and the flesh. Things don’t just happen.

Every man and woman out there, doing great and genuine works in the kingdom are those in the school of the Spirit. In this school, you wait ! You are tried, tested, empowered and released unto good works.
Is it Jesus? David? Paul? Or who? Jesus spent 30 years preparing for a ministry of 3.5years. In this kingdom, people don’t just emerge. They are first submerged in Christ, where they are transformed.
You want to reflect His glory? You have to behold it first. Common now !
You don’t just sow a seed into some person and expect to walk in their level of unction.
Well, in the other kingdom, that of this world, you can package it, work it and engineer it, and it would appear to work. But not here.
God has a room. It is a waiting room.

Psalm 105:19

“Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tested him.”

Hebrews 10:36.

For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise

You want good success? It has to be based on Joshua 1:8 and Psalm 1.

Please send and share with a young person out there. Especially those in a hurry to make it.

We shall be a wise generation.

God bless you all.

Nathaniel Bassey!

LOVE

woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. She said “I don’t think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat.”

“Is the man of the house home?”, they asked.

“No”, she replied. “He’s out.”

“Then we cannot come in”, they replied.

In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened.

“Go tell them I am home and invite them in!”

The woman went out and invited the men in”

“We do not go into a House together,” they replied.

“Why is that?” she asked.

One of the old men explained: “His name is Wealth,” he said pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another one, “He is Success, and I am Love.” Then he added, “Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home.”

The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was overjoyed. “How nice!!”, he said. “Since that is the case, let us invite Wealth. Let him come and fill our home with wealth!”

His wife disagreed. “My dear, why don’t we invite Success?”

Their daughter-in-law was listening from the other corner of the house. She jumped in with her own suggestion: “Would it not be better to invite Love? Our home will then be filled with love!”

“Let us heed our daughter-in-law’s advice,” said the husband to his wife.

“Go out and invite Love to be our guest.”

The woman went out and asked the 3 old men, “Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest.”

Love got up and started walking toward the house. The other 2 also got up and followed him. Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and Success: “I only invited Love, Why are you coming in?”

The old men replied together: “If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would’ve stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever He goes, we go with him. Wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success!!!!!!”

Dogs are essentially children

‪It’s no wonder why so many people call their dogs their “babies” or say, “My dogs are like my children”—their behaviors are so similar, it’s uncanny! They make friends with other dogs based on how similar their personalities are. Dogs are significantly smarter than we give them credit for, and most importantly, they essentially learn everything from watching their owners. Just like children, everything we do affects them. If a dog’s owner is overprotective and keeps her dog away from the outside world, the dog becomes afraid of nearly everything—other dogs, other people, the squirrels outside the window…everything. The more attention and affection we give our dogs as puppies, the smarter and more well-adjusted they become as adult dogs. Just like children, we get out of our four-legged pals what we put into them.

25 Things You Should Know & Accept As You Approach 25


1. Your mother’s instincts are usually right.
‪Whether if it is a gut feeling that you are going to get that dream job or that your boyfriend is a real bum, she always knows. Mothers always know. Just don’t question it.‬

2. Your significant other is not psychic.
‪So talk to them about what’s on your mind.‬

3. The way you react to things is directly correlated to the quality of your life.
‪Everything is a choice…be motivated or miserable, negative or cheerful, optimistic or doubtful.‬

4. Confidence is the sexiest thing one can wear.
‪That overly possessive aura and jealous face will not accent your Jimmy Choo pumps well. If you don’t believe that you own it, why would anyone else?‬

5. Never go to bed angry.
‪That was our household rule growing up—so scream, shout, whatever you gotta do—as long as you hug each other and think about one thing you’re grateful for before you close your eyes.‬

6. Don’t forget to say “thank you.”
‪People always remember good manners.‬

7. Many people don’t mean what they say, say what they mean, or do what they say.
‪I’ll let you re-read that. Got it? It’s unfortunate that individuals are not aligned in these aspects and as a result, they are usually unfulfilled in some way. Don’t be one of them and be in harmony.‬

8. If you don’t know how it was made, it probably isn’t that healthy for you.
‪I’m definitely not a nutrition freak, but the philosophy is simple. Limit processed foods, get a little bit of everything: your proteins, greens, fruits. When you’re 70 and on the dance floor while some of your friends have arthritis or are obese, you will thank me.‬

9. Give yourself a half hour before bed without any emails or texts.
‪It helps you relax and ease into a better sleep.‬

10. You should have purchased wine glasses after you graduated college.
‪A Malbec in a Solo cup will probably make a wine connoisseur want to cry and if anyone finds out, Napa just might put you on their ban list.‬

11. It’s smart to plan and also to let go when life has other plans.
‪401K—smart. Your timeline for life events….let that play itself out. It’s usually best in the grand scheme of things.‬

12. H2O is your real bestie.
‪It is such a simple thing and took me FOREVER to adopt into my lifestyle. Dehydration is the root of many issues such as weight gain, improper digestion, a loss of energy, dull skin, and the list goes on. Just drink the water, cleanse your body, and reward it for all the hard work it does.‬

13. People appreciate genuineness in business.
‪Being in sales, my clients can spot a fake from miles away and they do not have time to engage in aggressive and fluffy banter. They appreciate when you get to know them on a personal level as well as their professional needs and concerns. Also, don’t forget to let them in on your life, too—people love 20-something stories and giving their “been there, done that” wisdom!‬

14. You will outgrow people in your life.
‪Our priorities, preferences, and ideals change over the years so this is bound to happen. Don’t sweat it.‬

15. Don’t overthink it, just do it.
‪This is one of those I continue to work on…really let’s just all make a more productive use of our time.‬

16. If all else fails, smile.
‪I’ve been in numerous uncomfortable or out of the ordinary situations that involved not knowing a soul in the room. Those pearly whites make you more approachable and easier to get into the flow of a conversation.‬

17. If you are open-minded, you are bound to learn and appreciate more around you.
‪Always take up an opportunity to be exposed to something new.‬

18. Have a mentor and don’t let your ego get in the way of asking for help.
‪At one point in time, the person that you look up to needed guidance as well. It’s called paying it forward.‬

19. Love can be subtle.
‪It does not have to be extravagant, involve huge gestures, or even be breathtaking. You don’t have to instantly be swept off your feet, but rather it can culminate into something beautiful over time.‬

20. Pain almost always makes you better.
‪It causes an urgency to show you something with the status quo requires changing.‬

21. Your mind defines your bounds.
‪Believe, baby, believe.‬

22. People may come and go, but you will never regret doing something nice for them.
‪And plus, more good karma for you!‬

23. Puppies are instant endorphin boosters.
‪Bad day, look at pictures of these cute, fluffy, monsters…or better yet, get one!‬

24. It’s never too late to catch up.
‪People appreciate when you think of them.‬

25. Chill. 25 is just a number.
‪If you’re doing it right, you should just be aging well and getting more fabulous every year. Much like wine. Cheers to that

17 Lifechanging Things That Happen When You Live With Your Best Friend

1. Your wardrobe doubles
‪If you’re anywhere near being the same size, or even sometimes when you aren’t, you’re going to end up sharing your clothes. A lot of people look at this like it’s the kiss of death for a friendship, but for me, it was like sprinkling Miracle Grow— our friendship was supercharged by sharing all our stuff. We went shopping together and bought clothes as a unit, even. If we ever needed a particular article of clothing, we had it on deck, and if it was dirty, we likely had a substitute. It made getting ready fun instead of an endless struggle of wardrobe ennui.‬

2. You find things 10x faster
‪Where are your keys? If you don’t know, your roommate might. They know all the stupid places you leave your things and can turn a two hour debit card stakeout into a two second “what about your laptop bag?”‬

3. You always have a date
‪Worried about showing up to a party alone? With your built-in best friend plus one, you’re good to go. Batteries not included.‬

4. You resolve every problem faster
‪When you live together, arguments center around leftover food and dirty dishes. Everything else becomes almost instantly solvable— what’s the point in fighting? You have to co-exist, you’re in a box together and you share a sink. You help each other more, and that includes helping each other fix the issues between the two of you with ease.‬

5. You wake up/come home to gifts and notes
‪You leave each other cute shit like a damn couple. Why not? It’s like, who else is going to do this for me? You know this person like you know yourself, and you treat them the way you want to be treated. And damn, treat yourself, right? Half the time, you buy a pack of cookies for your roommate and end up eating half with them anyway. If that aint love then I don’t know what love is.‬

6. You have a hangover nurse whenever you need one
‪When you can’t move your limbs or think about daylight, your roommate has the four limbs you need to go to the grocery store and get reinforcements. It’s a beautiful thing. Now that I live on my own and have no one to get a buffalo chicken quesadilla and packet of Excedrin migraine when I can’t, I swear my hangovers last six hours longer and make me question my existence.‬

7. You don’t go hungry
‪Eating your roommates food without replacing it is a cardinal sin, punishable by eternal broken trust and hatred. But sharing your own food and replacing theirs is one of the most wonderful moments in symbiotic human nature. Embrace it.‬

8. You always have someone to split the pie with
‪Okay, not to get caught up on the takeout of it all, but ordering delivery is sad as hell when you live alone. When you live together? It’s reasonable, cheesy Christmas.‬

9. You have someone to talk you down whenever you need it
‪You’re about to text your ex. You’re three beers deep. This is it, you think, reaching for the phone. Your roommate literally slaps you. “I am so sick of hearing about this shit! Come on, we’re going out.” Not all heroes wear capes.‬

10. Your inside jokes become ten times more inside, and therefore more hilarious
‪It will annoy and ruin your relationships with everyone around you, but, L O L.‬

11. Your decor becomes kind of weird but very inspired
‪There are things that stick around as decorations for no logical reason, even if you and your roommate have the place looking dope on its own. I’m talking about empty bottles, sombreros, weird printouts of pictures of cats. My old house had a printout of a legal notice about illegally downloading a Nickleback song, it was nailed to our kitchen wall for a full year. Why? Because that is perfect. Who downloaded Nickleback? What sad lawyer even cares? What brings a room together better than the threat of a lawsuit?‬

12. You lack inhibitions but still have boundaries
‪You’re cool with peeing in the same room as the other person, being in towels around each other, and a whole host of other things that would make you uncomfortable with anyone else, but you know what makes your friend uncomfortable and you respect it.

13. Your bedroom is their bedroom is the living room is the-
‪Sometimes you share a bed even though you have two bedrooms, because you watch Se7en and are too creeped out to sleep alone. Other times you both black out and wake up on the futon in the living room. What is a ‘room,’ really? A space by any other name would feel as cozy and sweet.‬

MY MOTHER

My first love,
My first teacher,
My goddess,
My angel in disguise,
My heroine,

The reason why I’m alive,
The precious soul dat sparkles my world,
The foundation of my world,
The one who made me feel a slight of heaven,
The one that brings me back on track,

Nurtured me like I’m a royal,
Loves me despite my shortcomings,
Always there for me,
Despite the dumb things I do,
She is an African woman,
Strong, Beautiful and Blessed,
She is My Mother.
