LOVE WHO YOU ARE BY JOSEPHINE OSEI

Be who you are

The Rabbit runs, jumps, moves faster and lives for only fifteen ( 15 ) years whiles the Tortoise doesn’t even attempt any of such activities but lives for one hundred and fifty ( 150 ) years or more?

Life is not about rushing, comparing and doing what everybody else is doing but rather keep calm and do what is right. The Rabbit and the Tortoise may live in the same forest and play together but have different life expectancy.

We must remember that we will have age mates, class mates, school mates, office mates but there are no ” Destiny Mates ” in life. Discover your inner genius and influence people with it in a positive way. Be who you are, love who you are and thank God for your special journey which may not look like others.

Stay blessed.

SUCCEED WITH SMILE AND SILENCE

Smile and silence

Successful people have two things on their lips ” Smile and Silence “. A Smile can solve problems, whiles Silence can avoid problems. Sugar and Salt might be mixed together but ants rejects the Salt and carry away only the Sugar.

Select the right people in life and make your life better and sweet. If you fail to meet your dreams, change your ways not your God. Remember, trees change their leaves sometimes but not their roots.

THE MYSTERY OF THE BIBLE

This is pretty strange how it worked out this way. Even if you’re not religious, you should read this.

Question : What is the shortest chapter in the Bible?
Answer : Psalm 117

Question : What is the longest chapter in the Bible?
Answer : Psalm 119

Question : Which chapter is in the centre of the Bible?
Answer : Psalm 118

Facts : There are 594 chapters before Psalm 118 and there is 594 chapters after Psalm 118. Add these numbers up and you will get 1,188

Question : What is the centre verse in the Bible?
Answer : Psalm 118:8 Does this verse say something significant about God’s perfect will for our lives?

Well, the next time someone says they would like to find God’s perfect will for their lives and that they want in the centre of His will, just send them to the centre of His word!

Which is Psalm 118:8 ” It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man ” Amen

WHO IS A WOMAN

Who Is A Woman By Josbons

( A conversation Between God And An Angel )

When God created woman, he was working late on the sixth day…. An angel came by and asked:

ANGEL: Why spend so much time on her lord?

GOD: Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her?
1. She must function on all kinds of situations.
2. She could be able to embrace several kids at the same time and have a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart.
3. She must do all this with only two hands. She cures herself when sick and can work eighteen hours a day.

The angel amazed, so he asked,

ANGEL: Just two hands… impossible, and this is the standard model?

The angel went closer and touched the woman and said… But you have made her so soft Lord.

GOD: Yes, but I have made her strong. You can’t imagine what she can endure and overcome.

ANGEL: Can she think?

GOD: Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate.

The Angel touched her cheeks and said, Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! you have put too many burdens on her.

GOD: She is not leaking. It is a tear. The Lord corrected the Angel.

ANGEL: What is it for?

GOD: Tears are her way of expressing her grief, doubts, love, suffering and pride.

This made a big impressions on the Angel. So he said… Lord, you are a genius. You thought of everything. A woman is marvellous.

GOD: Indeed she is.
a. She has strength that amazes a man.
b. She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens.
c. She holds happiness, love and opinions.
d. She smiles when she feels like screaming. e. She sings when she feels like crying, cries when happy and laughs when afraid.
f. She fights for what she believes in.
g. Her love is unconditional.
h. Her finds strength to get in with life when her heart gets broken.

ANGEL: So she is a perfect being?

GOD: No. She has just one drawback. She often forgets what she is worth.

So, if you are a woman, know your worth and be proud of who you are.

TWO YEARS ON WORDPRESS BY JOSBONS

Two years of blogging by Josephine Osei

Today marks exactly two years since I started blogging and have enjoyed every bit of it. The new friends that I have made even though I haven’t met any of them and might probably not see them ever, but it feels so good to find other people who share the same interest from a different continents.

Some few years back, when I read a book and finds it interesting, all I wanted to do was to share it with some friends. But funny enough, most of my friends didn’t like reading novels so they keep asking, what is it with you and books? And I will reply, why don’t you like reading? 😁

This continued for sometime before I got introduced to WordPress and the magic began. I was so happy to know that, finally I can share something that I love to do with the world.

To sum all up…

Coffee never knew it will taste nice and sweet before it met sugar and milk. We are good as people but become better when we blend with the right people. The world is full of nice people, if you can’t find one, be one.

The richest wealth is wisdom
The strongest weapon is patience.
The best security is faith.
The greatest tonic is laughter.
The greatest force is love.
The surest assurance of our hope is God.
The source of our strength is the joy of the Lord.

surprisingly, all are free so let’s enjoy it.

Thanks to you all.
