LIFE RELATED FACTS ABOUT LAGOS

A failed attempt to capture a view of Lagos 
Wow....who said Lagos is not crowded? Here are facts you should know about Lagos.

Lagos is crowded not just with persons but with cars and buildings and streetlights and flyovers and everyother thingy.

For the first time I see buildings that are taller than I
Buildings I look up to
And not look down on




Lagos is a taste of the good life.
It's also an evidence to the importance of nature.

Lagos shows the advantage and disadvantage of technology in a society.

Lagos maybe small on the map but large in life.
Lagos is a metaphor....it's beautiful and ugly.
It has both the good and the bad.
Life too...it has the good and the bad but if you anchor on Christ, you'll mostly be on the good part and only sail through the bad part.

Truly, it was once a country's capital. It's better now. Just like, if you pass through Christ, you'll be changed.



Lagos is the los Angeles of Nigeria...the unnecessary skyscrapers and beautiful night lights.

In a place like Lagos, you know that the beautiful ones are truly not yet born
You learn that material things are unending...so pursue the right things.
That new beauties of life are still incoming
That hardwork is an essential quality else you'll be caught up with the ugly side.
That despite all and all there is a God that must be acknowledged first.

Lagos is a city that never sleeps nor slumbers
The cars are always going
The cars are always coming
If you let God into, He watches over you without sleep or slumber

A city that shows that you can't go at life alone, you need to hold unto God and when you hold unto God, everything is certain...lines fall in pleasant places.

Lagos is organized....in tranport, in road map outs, in law, in governance, in banking and what not. And I just happen to love organized people and things.


Did I forget to mention the traffic? It's just a whole lot of craziness. You travel for 5 hrs to get to Lagos and spend 4 extra hours to get to your abode...wow! Goes to show that there's no beauty without imperfection but guess what? It's those imperfections that God uses to help us shine true

However, I don't know about living here but it's good for visiting.

There it is. Have any life related facts about Lagos?  Use the comment section. It's for you.
Happy weekend

THREE TIPS FOR DEALING WITH 'STRANGERS'

Before a person became a friend, he/she was a 'stranger', then maybe an acquaintance before attaining friendship. In life, many circumstances or situations tend to take us away from family and friends that we are so used to and safe around such as NYSC, industrial training, internship, law school, medical school, competitions or even relocation.

SEARCHING #7

'Emeka is that you?' I asked expecting otherwise

'Nope' answered a female voice.

 Ha! I knew no girl, so who could that be.

'Who then?' I said getting up.

'It’s dera your classmate.'

I didn’t know any dera but it would be rude bombarding her with questions with the door to her face plus I didn’t even know anyone in my class.
I opened the door but it was so dark that I couldn’t see her face.

'Ah! It’s dark already, I didn’t know that. Please come in.'

'Thank you' she said stepping in. I was beginning to think that you were dead or something worse.

'What could be worse than dead?'

'I don’t know' she shrugged.

I now remembered her. The overly outspoken girl in the class who somehow, always had her manners with her but would always interfere when not wanted. Emeka would write me down for not knowing her name. Everyone knew her because of her interference spirit. She had not interfered in my business because I had not cr…

THANKFUL FOR HIS HELP

My heart is filled with gratitude. At the end of last year, I wasn’t in a good place. There was this heart-gnawing fear. A new phase was coming in my life and the uncertainty of the future just ate me away. My relationship with God was on a zig-zag lane and the downward lane seemed to last for longer periods than the upward. I was honestly so scared about the future. A lot of what ifs.
