BE INSPIRED



















Darkness cannot drive out darkness,  only light can.  Hate cannot drive out hate,  only love can.    Martin Luther king jnr.

This is my favourite Martin luther quote of all times. I remember when I was a child, I shared everything I had with my younger brother and he did same too. One day, he had a biscuit but wouldn't give me, I promised to also not give him when I get mine. I kept to my word when I got mine, he then promised to do the same the next time he got. But I had reasoned that, since he didn't give me once, I also wouldn't give him once, then we'll go back to giving each other again but I was wrong. He refused to give me the next time he had a biscuit and I tried arguing that he made me not to give the last time but he wouldn't have any of it and that's how we kept on not giving each other any form of snacks because we didn't receive the last time till I got tired and started giving him again and surprisingly,  when he had, he would just give me without my asking.
Likewise, revenge doesn't make anything better, hate can only spill more hate. If you hate someone for hating you, the person won't turn around to love you. Bringing a dead touch into a dark room won't take away the darkness, but bringing a burning touch would drive away the darkness.

During the exhortation, the pastor shared the following scripture; Ecclesiastics 11: 1 Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days.

WALK OF SHAME...WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN

Her leg ached.
Her waist ached.
Her neck ached.
Dinma was all shades of uncomfortable and didn't know which part of herself to rely on. She turned her neck in quick rotations in an attempt to reduce the ache but it did her no good. She cursed within. This was supposed to be a fun and happy day, not one filled with aches from all parts of her body. The fact that She had been an usher did no good for her. Two hours is a long time to have been standing. She sighed resignedly. The girl beside her turned and smiled at her sympathetically, she managed a weak smile in return. The Security officials were still perambulating, disappearing and reappearing, she dared not sit. If she wasn't spotted from the podium, the officials would certainly see her. Only one person had been excused to sit because of illness and it had been announced to avoid display of smart stupidity.
She picked the ceremony booklet from her seat for the umpteenth time to check progress. There was still three pages …
