Essentials Question of the Heart

Have you ever heard him talk about his parents? If so,is he respectful? Would he rather TALK to you than text? Is he respectful toward you around his friends? Would you be okay with him spending time with your dad (or the fatherly figure in your life) when you aren’t around?
Would you be okay allowing him to see when your makeup/hair is not done? Does he have a father/mentor figure whom he seeks to model himself after? Does he give you more non-physical compliments than physical compliments? Does he have a job to support himself? Does he handle his money well? Do you have the same beliefs when it comes what matters to you most? Has he met your parents?
Have you talked about short term goals? Do your short term goals align? Have you talked about long term goals? Do your long term goals align? Does he stop when you say “stop?” Does he respect your body? Have you had dialogue about what you believe and why? Do you know anything about his past relationships? Does he know anything abou…

still have joy lyrics (Ron Kenoly)

I've been tested

My faith has been tried

Satain has attempted to destroy my life

He's robbed abused accused and stole

He's done everything he could do

To conquer my soul

I still have joy

I still have joy

After all I've been through

I still have joy

Friends have left me

They've questioned my faith

The good I tried to do

Was thrown back in my face

The hurt and the pain brought tears to my eyes

But God has replaced a blessing

For every tear that I've cried

I still have peace

I still have peace

After all I've been through

I still have peace

I still have His love

I still have His love

After all I've been through

I still have His love

After all I've been through

After all I've been through

I still have joy

I am lyrics Kirk Franklin

"I Am"
To the nobodies, to the abandoned
Who couldn't see in the pain was a plan
Looking back now Lord I can say thank you
Now let me tell you who I am
How do you do?
I am a sinner
Born into sin and shaped in iniquity
Now I believe not who I was but still not what I shall be
You found me and gave me your name and
Things I desired have changed but
Inside you'll see it's still broken pieces
Deep in me reaches for you (hello)
How do you do?
I am a beggar (that means I'm)
Desperate for more
I hunger for your truth
See I am shattered
Though I may fall still you make all things new
You speak, the storm, it obeys and gone is the weight of mistakes and
Though I still feel you continue to heal, look close, and see (whoa)
[Chorus:]
I am so far from perfect
I thought life was worthless
Until you showed me who I am
Not here by mistake
No luck, only grace
I'm on my way to
Who I am (not who I was), I am (forgiven and loved)
I am (healed by your blood), I am (yes)
Thank…

NIGERIA'S FIRST ANTHEM

Nigeria's first anthem, written by a British expatriate and was in use until 1978, when the government changed the anthem.

I. Nigeria we hail thee, Our own dear native land, Though tribe and tongue may differ, In brotherhood we stand, Nigerians all, and proud to serve Our sovereign Motherland.

2. Our flag shall be a symbol,That truth and justice reign, In peace or battle honour'd, And this we count as gain, To hand on to our children, A banner without stain.

3. O God of all creation, Grant this our one request, Help us to build a nation, Where no man is oppressed, And so with peace and plenty, Nigeria may be blessed.

Nigeria anthem 1960 to 1978

Nigeria we hail thee,
Our own dear native land,
Though tribe and tongue may differ,
In brotherhood we stand,
Nigerians all, and proud to serve
Our sovereign Motherland.
Our flag shall be a symbol
That truth and justice reign,
In peace or battle honour'd,
And this we count as gain,
To hand on to our children
A banner without stain.
O God of all creation,
Grant this our one request,
Help us to build a nation
Where no man is oppressed,
And so with peace and plenty
Nigeria may be blessed.

Leaders and Followers Have Specific Roles (iEQUIP)

"Where the word of a king is, there is power; and who may say to him, "What are you doing?" He who keeps his command will experience nothing harmful; and a wise man's heart discerns both time and judgment . . . All this I have seen, and applied my heart to every work that is done under the sun: There is a time in which one man rules over another to his own hurt."  Ecclesiastes 8:4-5, 9

Solomon makes a point about our relationship to the people who lead us. We are to submit to them, not because the person deserves it, but because the office deserves it and God decrees it. And what about leaders in authority? Solomon also issues a warning. When leaders try to exercise authority without a servant's heart, they eventually hurt themselves. Consider what he says:

       Role of the Follower                            Role of the Leader

Submit to God-given authority.              Exercise authority with wisdom & caution.

Trust God to accomplish His purpose.  R…

Finding Your Place iEQUIP

". . . being confident of this very thing,  that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ."   Philippians 1:6

Right now you may not be in a position to place others on your team. In fact, you may be thinking to yourself, How do I find my own niche? If that's the case, then follow these guidelines:

*Be secure - If you allow your insecurities to get the better of you, you'll be inflexible and reluctant to change. And you cannot grow without change.
*Get to know yourself - Spend time reflecting and exploring your gifts. Ask for feedback. Do what it takes to remove personal blind spots.
*Trust your leader - A good leader will help you to start moving in the right direction. Or get on another team.
*See the big picture - Your place on the team only makes sense in the context of the big picture. If your only motivation for finding your niche is personal gain, your poor motives may prevent you from discovering what you desire.
*Rely…

Thank you Lyrics by Nathaniel Bassey and Enitan Adaba

When I think upon your goodness;
And Your faithfulness each day

I’m convinced it’s not because I am worthy -

to receive the kind of love that You give.

But I’m grateful for your mercy,

and I’m grateful for your grace

And because of how You’ve poured out Yourself,

I have come to sing this song out in praise

Refrain:

Imela, Imela(Thank You! Thank You!)

Okaka, Onyekeruwa(Great and Might creator of the world)

Imela, Imela,(Thank You! Thank You!)

Eze m Oh(My King)

Verse 2:

Who am I to sing Your praises?

Who am I to worship You?

It’s Your blood that makes the difference in me

And made a way to enter into Your throne

I could not come near Your presence

I could never sing Your song

But the sacrifice on Calvary’s tree

is the reason I can cry out today

(Refrain)

Onyedikagi? Ekene diri gi(Who is like You? All Glory belongs to You)

Onyene mema(He who does good)

Onyedikagi? Ekene diri gi(Who is like You? All Glory belongs to You)

Onye nagworia(Mighty Healer)

(Repeat)

Recipient of His Grace

Ever wondered what it will be to wake up and find out there no one around you and you are facing a big screen at the seat of judgement and yet while on Earth you say it a normal thing even my everyone around does it even my spiritual mentors encourages it.
Beloved is God happy do i please God,do you know that when he comes you and i alone will be judged "And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. " (Revelation 22:12). If you have been thinking and saying in your that mother or father is so righteous so they will help me i will walk in as their child that only exist on this earth just like we say 'My father is the President i have the right to be here' just like this verse "Son of man, when the land sinneth against me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it, and will break the staff of the bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it…

Heart of worship (Michael W Smith)

I search through my gallery of songs and found this song spirit filled and impacting.
When the music fades

All is stripped away

And I simply come

Longing just to bring

Something that's of worth

That will bless Your heart

Bridge:

I'll bring You more than a song

For a song in itself

Is not what You have required

You search much deeper within

Through the way things appear

You're looking into my heart

Chorus:

I'm coming back to the heart of worship

And it's all about You,

It's all about You, Jesus

I'm sorry, Lord, for the thing I've made it

When it's all about You,

It's all about You, Jesus

Verse 2:

King of endless worth

No one could express

How much You deserve

Though I'm weak and poor

All I have is Yours

Every single breath

Bridge:

I'll bring You more than a song

For a song in itself

Is not what You have required

You search much deeper within

Through the way things appear

You're looking into my heart

Lead me Lord (Brooklyns tabernacle)

Lead me, lord, i will go!
You have called me, i will answer!

Precious Lord

Precious Lord, take my hand

,Lead me on, let me stand

,I am tired, I am weak, I am worn,

Through the storm, through the night

,Lead me on to the light

Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home



When my way grows drear

Precious Lord linger near

When my life is almost gone

Hear my cry, hear my call

Hold my hand lest I fall

Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home



When the darkness appears

And the night draws near

And the day is past and gone

At the river I stand

Guide my feet, hold my hand

Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home



Precious Lord, take my hand

Lead me on, let me stand

I'm tired, I'm weak, I'm lone

Through the storm, through the night

Lead me on to the light

Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

The Fast Way to Gain Leadership

"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction."  Proverbs 1:7

Wisdom can be a leader's best friend, especially in times of decision. Suppose you find yourself in a large committee meeting in which a crucial decision must be made. The committee reaches an impasse and everything stops. Who will become the most influential person in that room? Answer: the one with the wisdom to draw a conclusion that not only works, but which receives the blessing of that committee.

Proverbs 1 describes wisdom as a woman crying out in the streets. What a beautiful picture! Wisdom does not hide herself, but shouts publicly! We must go out and find her and build a friendship with her: What can we learn about decision making from Proverbs?

1The foundation for every decision is to honor and revere God.
2We must build off of our heritage and conscience: What values are we to embrace?
3We must avoid the counsel of the ungodly.
4We must pursue …

'Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb'

Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power?

Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour?

Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

[Chorus:]

Are you washed in the blood,

In the soul-cleansing blood of the Lamb?

Are your garments spotless are they white as snow?

Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Lay aside your garments that are stained with sin

And be washed in the blood of the Lamb.

There's a fountain flowing for the soul unclean.

O, be washed in the blood of the Lamb!

[Chorus]

are you washed in the blood In the soul-cleansing blood of the Lamb? Are your garments spotless are they white as snow? Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb

Lyrics Amazing grace

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.
Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promised good to me.
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.
Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
When we've been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we've first begun.
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

Spend Minutes Wisely

"Lord, make me to know my end, and what is the measure of my days, that I may know how frail I am. Indeed, You have made my days as handbreadths, and my age is nothing before You; certainly every man at his best state is but vapor."   Psalm 39:4-5

In Psalm 90, David shows his mindfulness of his brief time on earth. He asks God to help him number his days, which ought to be the prayer of every leader. Wise leaders work to redeem the time they have.

A leader needs to wonder if the task is worth the time investment. What would happen if the leader wasn't the one doing it? Is there someone else who could do it just as well, and for whom the task would be time better spent? A good leader knows that time is like gold, and good "spending habits" are essential. It's just that in this case the units are minutes, not dollars.

If you don't know where your time goes - that's a danger signal. If you can save small bits of time and consolidate them into a chu…
