THE DEVIL AS A ROLE MODEL

Hey there! I'm not using WhatsApp. Lol
It's a new week people, didn't start well for me though and I know I'm not alone, to some of you, it didn't start well either. But you know what? You're not alone and I promise you that, if only you believe and have faith, even before the week ends, you'll be praying that it shouldn't, because it would have turned around to be going great for you.

Let's get down to business, shall we?
A few weeks ago, I posted a facebook status update saying "the devil isn't lazy, why should you be?" and someone left a comment saying "so now the devil has become a role model" and my answer was "yes".

There's a saying that, when life throws lemons at you, you make lemonade. This tells us that, we can actually turn challenges into successes right? So why can't we do a similar thing with the enemy, the devil??



Do you realize that God created the devil? (as an angel of course) Do you also realize that it means he has good qualities or characteristics from God? The problem is, he uses those good qualities for the wrong things. So how about we learn those good qualities and use them for the right things??  Something similar to making lemonade out of lemons right?

So I interviewed few of my friends and this is what I came up with;

1. COURAGE: Mr. Devil is a very courageous man you know. That is why he can attempt to attack a very anointed man of God. The Bible tells us that, we have been given the power to trample on snakes and powers of darkness. It also the tells us that, we have not been given the spirit of timidity but rather the spirit of courage and of sound mind. Mr. Devil, very much aware of all these defences and high security still attacks you as a believer. So what stops you from being courageous? Or you don't know that He that is in you is greater than he that is in the world? You can see the "he" as the challenges and difficulties in your world of business, academics etc. Find the courage to face your fears like the devil faces and attacks believers

2. DETERMINATION AND PERSEVERANCE: I added these two because  you persevere only when you're determined. If you're not determined, there's no way you'll persevere. What are you persevering for when you're not determined to reach somewhere??
Mr. Devil's determination to populate hell is what makes him persevere in getting believers to fall for his tricks and into temptations. Hello? He tempted Jesus three times and went on a break to come back again. If it's not determination and perseverance, I'll love to know what it is.
When you persevere, it means you don't give up until you've reached your destination. Have you realized the devil never gives up? He keeps pushing till he gets what he wants, and after he gets it, he does everything to keep it.
Persevere through your difficulties and challenges and be determined to reach your goals.

3. SMART: The devil is smart. He uses his brains. He doesn't just do things, he plans on how to accomplish his aims with various tricks and tactics. He learns the things that excite his targets and uses those things to cause their downfalls. He knows he doesn't have time, so he comes up with different ways everytime to accomplish his aims of making believers fall into temptations.(talk of innovation). He applies various ways and means to bring a believer down. Dear friend, be smart in your endeavors

4. PATIENCE: If anyone tells you the devil doesn't have patience, the person has lied to you. The fact that impatience is an evil fruit doesn't mean the devil bears it (he could bear it though). The devil has the patience to wait for you to fall in the traps he sets, that is why he wouldn't give up on tempting you. Have you realized that everytime you overcome a temptation, there's another one that comes your way? And most often than not, you fall. He knows that all he needs is a little patience. He has the patience to wait for you to fall into one of his traps.
In life, most of the things we want to accomplish take time, without patience, we wouldn't be able to wait and eventually, we'll settle for less. Be patient!

5. HARDWORKING: This we all know. The devil is like a hungry lion, seeking whom to destroy. He doesn't stop working to get who to destroy, he's always working. Working as hard as God is working to protect you and me from him.
Be hardworking.

#TheReminder: GO GET A COPY

Hey there,
I cannot remember the last time I shared a blog post. It has been a great while. I have been away and doing nothing really except reading so much, school and getting into facebook squabbles(lol). But it is all over now. Time to get back to things that really matter. Aye!

So here is how we are going to start. Here is how we are coming back. As God willed it, my maiden book is almost done and it is titled THE REMINDER. I had a good friend help with the editing and here is a review he wrote. I'd like for you to read it and get to know a little about this book. In the meantime, till i start writing again.

It contains a collection of poems, memoirs and narratives from several sources all crafted to tell an elaborate story that is supposed to be a reminder that will strike you to respond to the things we so easily ignore.
In this book, The Reminder, you will find you…

WHY BREAKING YOUR VIRGINITY IS PAINFUL

Bonsoir!

I guess you had an amazing weekend. I'm wondering why nobody thanks God for Mondays. I mean, there's nothing like TGIM as there is TGIF... Lol

Everyone knows that a woman's first sex is painful, breaking her virginity is paainful! But do you know why it's painful?

When we buy a "tear rubber" product, what do we do to them in order to use it? As the name suggests, we tear the rubber!

Imagine you were the rubber being torn.. Ouch!
Breaking your virginity is painful because as a virgin, you're a "tear rubber" product. Your hymen that is attached to you happens to be the rubber that gets torn and voila! Sex is sweet afterwards.

Wondering what I'm driving at?? It's simple! START UPS! Start ups are a painful experience from the beginning. You'll be wondering why you're struggling to learn that new skill, why you're suffering to start up that business, why you're struggling to adapt to your new work or school schedule, …

#MemoirsOfATraveler: SAVED BY TAKORADI

This is me standing in a bus traveling from Accra to Kakum. After standing for almost 3 hours, I start asking myself, can I really stand through the return journey after having all the fun?? Of course not! So I decided to go back to what should have been a planned and well organized trip to Takoradi, to spend the rest of the weekend and return in grand style. (ie: sitting in my own seat, listening to good music, reading and eating.) Unfortunately, I slept through most of the journey and if my head could fall off, it would have fallen off and rolled everywhere inside the bus. Because I did a great deal of dozing. LOL
PC: Sixtus, CIBT


My stay in, is it the oil city they call it? Was brief. As brief as an orgasm. And like an orgasm, it was exciting! Though I didn't visit any popular landmark. I went to the beach, the harbor view gardens and the Atlantic Hotel.
The journey from Cape Coast to Takoradi was as dark as the battle of Winterfell. There are no street lights and we have past a…
